“The decision of Jerusalem District Police Commander Yoram Halevy to place metal detectors on the Temple Mount is a courageous decision, because at this time last week two policemen were murdered at the site. This decision is a responsible one that will help to ensure that such incidents do not repeat themselves.We will not succumb to threats and allow terror to win. Even if we face security challenges, today and in the future, this is the right decision, and we must stand with the police and support them. I commend the Jerusalem District Police Commander for his leadership in leading the decision and the Cabinet for their backing.This is not a political matter; it is a professional, security issue. No one is challenging the status quo on the Temple Mount and I call on all Muslim residents to help maintain the calm, not to act violently and to obey the police’s orders. Those who come to pray in peace are welcome. Those who come to engage in terror and provocation will be dealt with harshly. “
Each week I try to post a nice photo for
Shabbat shalom greeting,
like this one taken in Yemin Moshe.
this week I decided to also share two short videos.
The first from a Jerusalem site not so well known,
Zedekiah’s Cave or Solomon’s Quarry,
and the second taken in Old Jaffa,
where on the coast as the sun sets,
as usual at a Jewish wedding ceremony,
we remember Jerusalem.
