Jerusalem mayor feels Jews should have right to pray on Temple Mount

Nir Barkat's come to the defense of Jews who've been discriminated against:
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat has come out against the ongoing discrimination against Jews on the Temple Mount. Jews are prohibited to pray on the Mount, which is the holiest place in the world according to Judaism, and many have even been arrested for moving their lips at the site.

The matter is ultimately in the government’s hands, Barkat said, and not in the hands of Jerusalem leaders. His own opinion is “to let every person pray on the Temple Mount,” he said. [...]

Barkat gave his opinion on the matter while visiting Netiv Meir, a yeshiva high school for religious-Zionist youth.

He also spoke to the young students about leadership, and shared his own life story, which included services in the IDF Paratroopers, years in the business world, and then time in the realm of politics and public service.

In addition, Barkat addressed the issue of selecting a chief rabbi for the city. He noted that he had promised deceased religious-Zionist leader Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu that he would work to get a religious-Zionist rabbi appointed.
I'm glad he's stepping up to speak against an act of dhimmitude. What Yigal Allon did - handing the keys to the Temple Mount over to the Wakf in 1967 - caused a lot of damage that could've been avoided, and all this cowardice today is the result of it.
