Prof. Weiss at rightist event: Build third temple immediately – Israel News, Ynetnews

the Organization for Human Rights on the Temple Mount (OHRTM) called for Jews to visit the east Jerusalem compound, which houses the al-Aqsa Mosque.

During a rightist event held in Jerusalem Sunday evening, just hours after Muslims rioted in and around the Temple Mount amid reports that Jewish extremists were planning to visit the site, Professor Hillel Weiss said, “The (third) temple must be built now. The mosques do not have to be destroyed in order for us to do this.”

The conference, which was attended by a number of Knesset members and leading rabbis, was held in protest of the decision to seal off the compound due to the recent violence.

“It’s time that we stop surrendering to violence,” Temple Institute Director Rabbi Yehuda Glick said, adding that “before his assassination, prime minister Yitzhak Rabin said the greatest threat to Israeli democracy is bowing down to violence.

“Unfortunately, lately police are surrendering and withdrawing in the face of the Palestinians’ violence,” said the rabbi.
