Arab Policemen Arrest Jews for Bowing Down on Temple Mount.


Arab policemen arrested two Jews, including a prominent spokesman in Samaria, for allegedly bowing down and praying on the Temple Mount Sunday morning.

Shomron (Samaria) Liaison Spokesman David Ha'Ivri told Arutz Sheva, "We were in a group of 25 men performing the mitzvah of being seen on the Temple Mount during the Sukkot holiday. Suddenly, two policemen said a friend and I were bowing down, which they say is forbidden." Ha'Ivri said the policemen were non-Jews and identified them to the reporter as Arabs.

"I told the policemen, 'Look, there are Arab watch guards here, and they are not making a fuss about it.' The policemen replied, 'It is forbidden to bow down, and we are just doing our job.'"

Abiding by known rules issued by Muslim clerics, Ha'Ivri and the other members of the group did not carry with them any prayer books or religious items, which are forbidden by Jews to being with them when going up to the Temple Mount.
