 Police, Jordan and Hamas are shocked by the court decision on the Temple Mount

After the District Court in Jerusalem ruled that it was not illegal for Jews to climb the Temple Mount and sing “Shema Yisrael” a powerful political backlash ensued.

Senior Israeli police officers are “shocked” decision of the court, and intend to appeal against it today, May 23.

Together with the senior officers of the Israeli police, the Jordanian Foreign Ministry was shocked. On the night of May 23, Jordan issued an official statement condemning the court's decision in the strongest terms.

The statement reads: “The decision allows extremists to perform religious ceremonies throughout the al-Aqsa Mosque. This is a flagrant violation of all international resolutions regarding Jerusalem, including the decisions of the Security Council, which make clear the need to maintain the status quo in the holy city.

The statement goes on to say: “Jordan does not recognize Israeli legal authority over the complex and warns against issuing permits for extremists to break into its territory, which will lead to a dangerous escalation in a place where only Muslims can pray.”

Together with the Israeli police and the rulers of Jordan, the terrorist movement Hamas also expressed outrage: “The decision of the district court allowing the Zionist Jews to perform Talmudic ceremonies during their provocative invasions of the al-Aqsa mosque will lead to a dangerous escalation, the responsibility for which will fall entirely on the leaders of the occupation.< br />
Finally, Minister for Regional Cooperation Issau Freij (Meretz) denounced the decision: “A decision to allow the status quo to be violated at the Al-Aqsa Mosque is not only wrong, but also dangerous and irresponsible. Only a fool would burn down an entire forest in order to stop a fire. The legal adviser must issue a stay order before we find ourselves in a whirlwind of violence as a result of the generosity of one judge”.
