Keeping Jews Safe on the Temple Mount

For the first time since 1967, Israel has installed barbed wire atop a Temple Mount wall near the Arab section for prayer in the hours prior to the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which began Monday night.

Israel security personnel have been preparing for weeks for Ramadan it’s seen by Arab terrorist organizations as a particularly auspicious time to carry out attacks on Israelis and Jews.

The Palestinian Authority said the move constituted “a dangerous precedent” and claimed the Israeli government was installing the barbed wire “to prevent worshipers from entering Al Aqsa Mosque during the holy month of Ramadan.”

With strict security protocols in place, Israel will allow Palestinian Authority Muslims to enter Jerusalem for the purpose of pilgrimage to observe Ramadan in prayer at the Al Aqsa Mosque. That means no terror attacks, rock throwing or other words or actions meant to demonize Jewish worshipers.
