Arab MK Zoabi barred from entering Temple Mount

Joint (Arab) List Knesset member Hanin Zoabi is barred from entering the Temple Mount just ahead of afternoon prayers at the holy site.

Video footage of the incident shows the MK yelling to the border police officers on duty that “one day we’ll end up inside Jerusalem, and you’ll be outside.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered Jewish and Muslim lawmakers off the Temple Mount a year and half ago, after the outbreak in October 2015 of a wave of Palestinian violence and terror attacks centered around claims that Israel was attempting to take control of the compound.
