WATCH: Ben Gvir – “We Are The Landlords Of Jerusalem”

by Micha Gefen

Minister of National Security Itamar Ben Gvir ascended the Temple Mount and afterwards nearly 1,000 Jewish Israelis followed him.

Ben Gvir’s ascension drew negative reactions from Jordan, the “Palestinian” Authority and even the United States.

The US State Department stated the following in a letter:

“We are also concerned by today’s provocative visit to the Temple Mount/Haram al Sharif in Jerusalem and the accompanying inflammatory rhetoric. This holy space should not be used for political purposes, and we call on all parties to respect its sanctity,” continued Miller.

“More broadly, we reaffirm the longstanding US position in support of the historic status quo at Jerusalem’s holy sites and underline Jordan’s special role as custodian of Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem,” the statement concluded.

Ben Gvir stated, “I am happy to visit the Temple Mount, the most important place to the people of Israel. I must say that the police are doing an amazing job and, again, prove who the boss is in Jerusalem. All of Hamas’ threats won’t help, we are in charge of Jerusalem and of all of the land of Israel.”
