Ministry: Feiglin Banned from Har Habayis Because of ‘Bad Behavior’


moshe-feiglinAs a Knesset member, Moshe Feiglin(Likud-Beyteinu) ostensibly has immunity from prosecution on matters relating to politics and public safety, and should have free access to any cultural or historic site. That seems to be the case, except in regard to one site – the Temple Mount, from which Feiglin has been essentially banned.

The reason for this, the Justice Ministry said Monday, was because Feiglin’s “behavior” was not in line with what was expected from a Knesset member. “We have decided to prevent MK Feiglin from ascending the Temple Mount based on his previous behavior. As a result we have informed MK Feiglin that we do not intend to coordinate a visit for him to the Temple Mount with police.”

The decision, according to the Ministry, was taken by its highest echelons and was authorized by Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, as well as top police officials.
