Glick to Trump: Temple Mount, not Western Wall our holiest site

Following comments by Benjamin Netanyahu during US President Donald Trump’s visit, praising freedom of religion for Muslims and Israel in Israel, Likud MK Yehuda Glick says “the time has come to give Jews freedom of religion at the world’s holiest site — the Temple Mount.”

Speaking at the World Mizrachi annual conference in Jerusalem, Glick says that while visiting the Western wall yesterday, Donald Trump mistakenly called the site “the holiest place in the world for the Jewish people.”

“That is incorrect!” Glick says.

“We have a tendency to forget that the Temple Mount is our central focus, not the Western Wall,” he says, finishing his speech with a call for all Jews to ascend to the Temple Mount to mark Jerusalem Day tomorrow.
