Zionist Union MK slams deputy FM Tzipi Hotovely for saying her dream is to see Israel’s flag fly over the Jerusalem site.
Days after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reassured the world that Israel was maintaining the status quo regarding exclusive Muslim prayer rights at the Temple Mount, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely clarified comments she made about the site, saying they reflected her own personal position and not that of the government.
On Monday morning, the Likud lawmaker said in an interview on the Knesset Channel that her “dream is to see the Israel flag flying over the Temple Mount. This is the holiest place for the Jewish people.”
Later in the day she released a statement clarifying her position.
“My personal opinions are not the government’s policy, and I am certainly bound by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s policy as stated on Saturday evening in which he declared that there would be no change in the status quo at the Temple Mount.”

It should come as no surprise that a religious Zionist like Tzipi Hotovely has this desire in here heart. But will the majority of the Israeli people ever agree with her?
When the Israeli deputy Foreign minister wants to revoke this decision, she is surely calling for trouble. Obviously among all Muslims. But also from the majority of Israeli citizens, 70 per cent of them secular.
The Israel flag was hoisted on the Temple Mount in 1967, when the city of Jerusalem was liberated. The site was never recaptured by the forces of Islam. It was the Israeli leadership who decided to give the “holy site” back to the Jordanian forces.
The Temple Mount will be the hottest spot on the Earth, up till the day the Messiah returns. Before Yeshua the Messish is back on the Temple Mount, we can expect the last and final antichrist to reign from this site for a few years. Be on your alert. Do not end up supporting the wrong camp.
