"If Israel willingly gives up sovereignty of the Temple Mount to a foreign power, it will lose its moral, historical, legal and religious justification for existence," said MK Aryeh Eldad (NU/NRP) on Sunday. Eldad was responding to a report in Al-Quds al-Arabi that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas had agreed to transfer the Temple Mount's holy sites to Jordanian custody. "This is post Zionist, nonsensical and suicide," added Eldad.
