Tibi complains to police over Gimpel's Temple Mount quote

Bayit Yehudi candidate Jeremy Gimpel incited to violence, MK Ahmed Tibi (UAL-Ta'al) wrote in a complaint to police on Monday night.

Tibi's complaint came several days after a video from 2011 came to light, in which Gimpel, 14th on the Bayit Yehudi list described a theoretical situation in which the Dome of the Rock was "blown up" and the cornerstone of the Third Temple was laid as "incredible."

"Gimpel's statements plant seeds of dispute and incite to violence, and steps must be taken against him," Tibi stated.

Gimpel and the Bayit Yehudi declined to officially comment, but the party's English-Speaking Campaign Manager Jeremy Saltan tweeted: "Tibi just gave the Bayit Yehudi another seat."
