Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday called for Attorney-General Avihai Mandelblitt to examine whether comments made this week by Israeli Arab MK Jamal Zhalka about keeping Jews off the Temple Mount constitute incitement.

Zahalka, in an interview for the Palestinian website Dunya al-Watan, called on Palestinians to enlist in efforts to stop what he said was a daily increase in Jewish visitors to the holy site.

In the interview, he said Jews must be kept off the Temple Mount “in any way possible” and seemingly called to intensify the violence of recent months.
