Temple Faithful to Sue Top Cop for Slander
by Gil Ronen
(IsraelNN.com) The Organization for Human Rights at the Temple Mount demanded Thursday that the Attorney General launch a criminal investigation against the Commander of Jerusalem District in the Israel Police, Maj.-Gen. Aharon Franco. In addition, the group's leader, Yehudah Glick, wrote a legal letter to Franco demanding that he apologize before legal measures are taken against him. The group accuses Franco of giving interviews in which he slanderously blamed Jews for riots on the Temple Mount
"I am writing to you in order to direct your attention to severe allegations which were made by you and quoted in your name in the media in recent weeks,” Glick's letter said. It went on to quote a statement cited in a column by veteran journalist Nachum Barnea in the October 9 issue of daily Yediot Acharonot, in which Franco said of the Sukkot riots at the Temple Mount that “the ones who started the mess were publicity-hungry right-wing activists.”
“The advertisement published by these activists on their website,” Franco was quoted as saying, “which called upon multitudes of Jews to ascend to the Temple Mount, gave rise to a cry [by the Muslims] to save Al Aqsa from a Jewish takeover.”
“I have gone over all of the websites I know that deal with the Temple Mount and I did not see even one that called upon multitudes of Jews to ascend to the Temple Mount during the last Sukkot holiday, Glick wrote, adding that Franco's allegations constituted defamation.

The Bible calls upon every Israelite to ascend the Temple Mount, especially during the three major biblical festival seasons of Pesach (Passover), Shavuot (Pentecost) and Sukkot (Tabernacles), the holy days of the God of Jacob-Israel.
Will the Bolsheviks ban the Bible in Israel and accuse it of "incitement" while they continue to reward Nazi Muslim terrorism and refuse to remove the threat and secure Jewish rights of prayer upon the TEMPLE Mount - Judaism's holiest site?
