‘..He may have violated the Muslim-ordained prohibition against a Jew uttering a prayer to G-d..’
Jerusalem police Sunday morning arrested a young man who ascended the Temple Mount allegedly prayed there before his wedding at night.
The Honenu legal defense organization said one of its lawyers is at the police station and trying to win the release of the man.
The Israeli government accepted the Muslim Waqf authority on the Temple Mount. The Waqf forbids Jews and Christians from carrying any religious items to the holy site, and it goes berserk when one of its guards sees a Jew even moving his lips and possibly uttering a prayer to God.
It is not known exactly what the groom allegedly said.
The Chief Rabbinate of Israel prohibits Jews from ascending the Temple Mount on the basis of Halachic rulings, but many rabbis in recent years have permitted and even encouraged going to certain areas after the traditional immersion in a ritual bath.
Last week, a groom identified as Michael Basus visited the holy site before his wedding and stopped long enough to speak at the Grooms and Mourners Gate to talk about Judaism.
The Talmud relates a discussion of how Jews in the time of the Holy Temples comforted mourners and praise the grooms.
Below is the video, in Hebrew, of Basus and his friends on the way to the Temple Mount, under police guard.

The ignorance of this story speaks for itself. One would think that the Israeli government would be the last one to be persecuting Jews on the Temple Mount. Arresting a Jew for praying at the holiest site in Judaism.
Although, I am equally dismayed, if not more so, at the ‘Rules for Commenting’ on the “Jewish Press” website.
Here is a screen-shot of the rules. (Please read them carefully…)
Do you see what I see?
They begin by refraining; ‘..We ask that you respect the fact that we are a religious Jewish website..’
Okay.. I get that. The name of the site kinda’ gave it away…
Then, they go on to state; ‘..If you promote any foreign religions, gods or messiahs, lies about Israel, anti-Semitism, or advocate violence (except against terrorists), your permission to comment may be revoked..’
Whoa.. what was that?
‘..foreign religions, gods or messiahs..’ [‘..your permission to comment may be revoked..’]
What the hell does that mean?
Are they saying.. if a person is Jewish and happens to believe in the Messiah..they are less of a Jew?
Because, if that is what they are saying.. that sounds a lot like religious supremacy, intolerance and bigotry to me.
Please, correct me if I am wrong.. but, that’s what it sounds like.
I mean, let’s not let historical fact (ie. truth) get in the way of our narrative.
‘..unless you believe exactly what ‘we’ do..you are not allowed to comment..’
Sounds like Nazism..
Well, here at ‘sharia unveiled’ ..we do not believe in sourcing sites that are operated by intolerant religious bigots.
Therefore, we will NOT be sourcing the Nazi Press.. uh, I mean.. the ‘Jewish Press’ in the future.
And might I recommend, the staff at the Jewish Press try reading Torah for once, with a focus on Micah.
And something else just occurred to me..
The ‘staff’ at this ‘..religious Jewish website..’ spelled out the name of G-d. Check it out at our “source” link below. We took out the “o” in the subtitle here on our site.. but “they” didn’t.
That is ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN in Judaism. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCE are you to ever spell out the full name of G-d.
So, in addition to being intolerant religious bigots at the ‘Jewish Press’ who know nothing of Torah and historical truth.. they are also hypocrites that disavow the most sacred tenets of Judaism.
Perhaps ‘they’ shouldn’t be commenting on their site.
