MK Orbach: "The 'people' who claim that the Temple Mount is their ancient place, are not ashamed to throw waste there" • MK Golan: "I hope and believe that a government of the national camp will soon be formed that will ensure that such images do not repeat themselves" • K Rothman: "Under the rule of this government, the Waqf was given a free hand to do as it pleased on the Temple Mount"



Violent reactions in the political system to the "Israel Today" revelation regarding the dumping of garbage on the Temple Mount.

As you may recall, on Monday it was revealed in "Israel Today" that garbage trucks are dumping waste around the Temple Mount, in a place that according to Jewish tradition is considered the most ancient - the relief area in front of the temple site.

Chairman of the Knesset Committee, MK Nir Orbach (right): "The 'people' who claim that the Temple Mount is their holy place, are not ashamed to throw waste there. Relinquishing full control of the Temple Mount after the Six Day War was a mistake, as was the plan The disengagement in which we abandoned a flourishing land and gave up lively settlements was a mistake.

"This is exactly the point where Israeli sovereignty on the mountain should be expressed. It is impossible to turn a blind eye to the damage and disrespect in the holiest place for the Jewish people.

"I trust the district commander, who has already proven in the past how important governance is to him, to take care of stopping the dumping of waste on the Temple Mount immediately."

Co-chair of the lobby for the Temple Mount, MK May Golan (Likud), said that: "I feel shocked by those sights of garbage trucks, but I am not surprised at all.

In the past year, our Jewish identity in the State of Israel is in tangible danger due to the loss of governance of a government supported by the Muslim Brotherhood.

I have no expectations for the current situation to improve, only hope and faith that very soon a government of the national camp will be established, which will restore deterrence and guarantee that such images will not be repeated.'

MK Simcha Rothman (Religious Zionism), co-chairman of the lobby for the Temple Mount in the Knesset, said that: "Under the rule of this government, the Waqf, which works in cooperation with Israel's enemies in Hamas and others, has been given a free hand to do with the Temple Mount as it sees fit.

The results before our eyes: the desecration of the Temple Mount.

This adds to the promiscuity of all fronts of governance and sovereignty in the whole country.'

Arnon Segal, candidate for the religious Zionist list for the Knesset and one of the leaders of the Olim to the Temple Mount added: "We are finally fed up with the alienation and indifference shown by the state authorities regarding the saint in our places.

A leadership that despises its own sanctity drops the ground on which it stands.

We need an urgent change, to return to adhering to the values ​​that led us here after two thousand years and to rekindle the Jewish dream of generations.'

Tom Nisani, CEO of "In our hands for the sake of the Temple Mount": "Out of the entire area of ​​the Temple Mount, they found a "convenient" place to spread garbage - a few meters from the site of the temple.

This is a disgrace to the Jewish people for generations.'
