A group of lawmakers, led by Simcha Rothman, the Chair of the Constitution Committee, has called for urgent action in response to a troubling incident on the Temple Mount. In a letter addressed to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gabir, Commissioner Yaakov Shabtai, and National Security Committee Chair Zvika Vogel, the MPs expressed their shock and concern over a video that circulated on social media last week showing police officers engaging in violent behavior towards a group of young people.
“The entire people of Israel were shocked to discover a new reality in the State of Israel where beaten and humiliated Jews pray in the center of the first Hebrew city – Tel Aviv, while the Israel Police stand by,” Rothman stated in his letter.
According to the documentation from social media and the testimonies of witnesses, the letter described the sequence of events leading up to the incident. The MPs emphasized that such a situation is unacceptable in a Jewish state, especially after two millennia of exile. In concluding the letter, Rothman demanded a prompt investigation into the matter and, if necessary, a meeting of the National Security Committee to address the issue.
The CEO of Dini for the Temple Mount, Tom Nisani, also expressed concern over the incident. “It is impossible for us to accept a reality of restricting and destroying religious freedom in Israel, not in Tel Aviv but also not on the Temple Mount. I thank the members of the Knesset who are working on the issue and expect the decision makers, led by the Minister of National Security, to investigate the serious incident and lead to the dismissal of the police officers involved in destroying the evidence and beating the minors.”
This incident has sparked outrage among the Israeli public, raising questions about the actions of the police officers involved and the protection of religious freedom in the country. As the investigation unfolds, many are calling for swift and decisive action to address the situation and prevent any further instances of violence or discrimination.
In response to the growing concerns, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pledged to review the incident and take appropriate action. The Israeli Police have also issued a statement, expressing their commitment to a thorough investigation and holding accountable those responsible for any misconduct.
As tensions rise, it is crucial for the government to address this issue promptly and transparently, ensuring that the fundamental principles of religious freedom and equality are upheld in the State of Israel. The Israeli public, along with the members of Knesset demanding action, will closely follow the developments surrounding this disturbing incident on the Temple Mount.
