Israel to UN: Palestinian Terrorists to Blame for Temple Mount Violence in Jerusalem

(Jerusalem Post) Tovah Lazaroff - Palestinian terrorists are responsible for the violent riots on the Temple Mount during the last weeks, Israel's Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan told the UN Security Council on Monday. "The only ones breaking the status quo on the Temple Mount are the Palestinian terror groups inflaming the holy sites. Hundreds of Palestinian terrorists rioting on the Temple Mount posed a threat to both Muslims and Jewish worshipers at the Western Wall, and therefore the Israeli police had to intervene." "Many in the international community called for 'calm on both sides'," but such a demand was "completely detached from reality. The very notion that mobs of violent rioters motivated by radical Islamic terror groups could be placed on the same moral scale as a law-abiding democracy making every effort to keep the peace is ludicrous."
