Watch: Arab MK Goes Berserk on Temple Mount
Arab MK Jamal Zahalka (Joint List) personally harassed police over allowing Jewish visitors to visit the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site, on Tuesday.
“Why do you allow them in?” Zahalka shouts at police officers. “The hell with them, it’s just a provocation to hurt the feelings of Muslims.”
“You are criminals, lunatics!” he continues. “You are here in our place [i.e. Muslims – ed.], this is my home.”
Arab MKs from the Joint List party have taken a central role in stirring up provocations on the Mount, which it claims is a Muslim holy site and should be closed to Jews.
Earlier this month, another clip showed fellow MK Ahmed Tibi actually striking an Israel Police officer on the mount – a criminal offense – while Zahalka “orders” police to leave the site.
