Rabbi removed from Temple Mount for challenging Muslim heckler

A rabbi, who has been a long-time Temple Mount rights activist and visitor, was removed by police from the holy site Thursday morning for responding “Hashem, He is God,” when Muslim worshipers shouted “Allahu Akbar” at him during his visit.

According to multiple witnesses, Professor Yoel Elitzur, of Ofra in the West Bank, who ascends the Temple Mount monthly, was approached by a group of Muslim women associated with Marabtat, which encourages daily Arab convergence there to disrupt Jewish visitors.

After the women shouted the antagonistic expression, meaning “Allah is the greatest,” and Elitzur responded in kind, witnesses say he was initially detained by police and subsequently placed under arrest for disturbing the public order.
