Israeli Parliament Member Yehudah Glick of the Likud party appealed to the Supreme Court on Monday to order Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to cease from blocking efforts by MKs to visit Temple Mount during the Holiday of Sukkot.
In the appeal Glick complains that the prime minister led him to believe in private conversations held a month ago that if a "pilot visit" would go well Netanyahu would remove existing restrictions. ''It seems that the pilot [visit on Temple Mount] was like tossing a bone [to pacify], as if members of Knesset are dogs," Glick claims.
He added that there can be no doubt that Israeli security is well prepared to ensure the safety of those visiting Temple Mount.
