TEMPLE INSTITUTE RESPONDS TO SWASTIKA GRAFFITI ON TEMPLE MOUNT
“The Temple Institute condemns the abhorrent graffiti found on the Temple Mount this morning. The fact that this could occur at the holiest site in the world for the Jewish people — the location of the Holy Temple — in the very heart of Jerusalem, should serve as a wake-up call to rouse Prime Minister Netanyahu from his slumber of ‘status quo’ on the Temple Mount. This despicable act is yet another indication of the lack of Israeli sovereignty on the Mount. Jews seeking to visit and pray at their holiest site, should be able to do so without fear of intimidation or violence. We call upon the government of Israel to immediately put an end to Hamas rule on the Temple Mount and permit non-Muslims to worship freely at the site”. Said Rabbi Chaim Richman, International Director of the Temple Institute.
