At least half of Israelis support Judaist prayer service on Temple Mount

According to the following polling data from the Viterbi Center:
Following a tense Muslim holy month of Ramadan, a new poll conducted by the Viterbi Center for Public Opinion and Policy Research of the Israel Democracy Institute and published on Tuesday showed that 50% of Jews in Israel support being able to pray at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, against 40% of Jewish respondents who oppose it.

According to the Israeli Voice Index for April 2022, a breakdown according to the voting pattern from the last election reveals a large majority of supporters of Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount among voters for the Likud, Religious Zionism Party, Yamina, New Hope, and Israel Beytenu, and a large majority of opponents among voters for center and left-wing parties and for Haredi parties.

The main reason (38%) given by those in favor of allowing prayer at the Temple Mount was that it "demonstrates Jewish sovereignty over the site," while the main reason (23%) of those against was that it might "invoke a severe negative reaction from the Muslim world." Within the religious context, 17% of those who are opposed are against it because it is "forbidden by halacha (Jewish law)," while 12% said they support the practice as a "religious commandment."
So if I notice correctly, even certain Haredi movements, along with leftists, unfortunately, are against Judaist prayer on the Temple Mount, most likely out of a flawe notion that this will actually bring about the Messiah, when in fact, it's the opposite. And cowering from Islamic violence is another seriously disturbing part of this whole affair.

The poll also shows Naftali Bennett gets a terrible rating on his job as a faux-premier:
Additionally, the poll showed that just one-third of Jewish respondents (33%) gave his policy for dealing with the security events of the last month a good rating compared with 42% who graded it poor and 21% who awarded it a moderate score. Among Arab participants, a particularly low share of respondents (16%) viewed this policy positively.
I can only wonder what a leftist politician as awful as Yair Lapid will get if he takes over the premiership next. For now, interesting that even Arabic residents don't approve of Bennett.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
