Bennie Begin: ‘We will never relinquish Temple Mount'

February 15, 2010 21:37

Minister-without-Portfolio Bennie Begin, speaking Monday at a gathering in Jerusalem, said that the city’s status as the capital of Israel has been undermined over the last few years.

“Far ranging plans have been put on the negotiating table, not only in east Jerusalem, but proposals have been made for Israel to relinquish Jewish sovereignty over Temple Mount, the Mount of Olives, and the City of David,” said Begin.

Begin went on to say that “in the name of the Israeli government, such proposals and ones like them will not be considered under any condition.”
