Jewish Activists Barred From Temple Mount

Lucas 19:43 The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side.

Jerusalem police have blocked a march on the Temple Mount under grounds it would “endanger the public.”

Activists wanted to protest the prohibition against performing ritual sacrifices on the Temple Mount. The group planned to march with 20 sheep Sunday afternoon. Police reported they would increase police presence on Sunday to make sure that no one attempted to sneak sheep into the area.

Arab press had been fanning the flames against the event in recent months, claiming the march was an attempt by Jews to take over the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa mosque. When a Likud activist attempted to visit the Temple Mount in February, Arab riots led to 30 arrested and multiple injuries to police.
