MK Shuli Muallem of the Bayit Yehudi party paid a visit to the Temple Mount Tuesday morning to protest the decision of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to prevent Likud MK Moshe Feiglin visiting the site on Monday.

Feiglin has visited the Temple Mount once a month for several years but was prevented from doing so yesterday following a phone call from the police informing him that the prime minister had given instructions barring him from the site, citing security concerns.

During her visit, Muallem said that members of Knesset should set a personal example and go up to the Temple Mount “in order to elevate the Jewish people up another level.”

The MK also decried “the manipulative use of security [concerns] to prevent Jews praying at the Temple Mount.”
