Despite Jordan PM, Israel is Exclusive Sovereign in Jerusalem and Temple Mount

By Moshe Feiglin

Last Sunday, the Prime Minister of Jordan, Abdullah Ensour, declared in the Jordanian parliament that the Knesset deliberation that I initiated on Israeli sovereignty for Feb. 25th is dangerous. The Jordanians parliamentarians took advantage of the opportunity to call for war against Israel.
Ensour’s claim that Jordan is the sovereign on the Temple Mount is baseless, but we must take his false claim seriously. That is exactly why I initiated the Knesset deliberation on Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount. Israel’s absolute sovereignty in Jerusalem is not subject to any debate. It is secured in the Jerusalem Foundation Law.
I call upon all the Knesset Members to whom Jerusalem is dear to participate in the deliberation and to safeguard Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount and in Jerusalem.
