Jordan WHAT?

I have written many times on this blog that I do not ascend the Temple Mount because my rabbis don't allow me to until the Messiah comes (speedily and in our times). But this headline from the JPost is way out of whack:

Report: Jordan vetoes Israeli request to allow Jewish prayer on Temple Mount

Oh wait - we won the 1967 war but our moronic 'leaders' gave them back the keys....
Abd Al-Nasser Nassar, who serves as Amman’s top legal adviser for Islamic and Christian property in Jerusalem, is quoted as telling the Jordanian daily al-Rad that his government rejected an Israeli request to allow for Jews to pray in a small, designated area atop the site.

In the peace treaty signed between the two governments nearly 20 years ago, Israel acknowledged the Hashemite Kingdom’s “special role” in the custodianship of the holy sites in Jerusalem. In any final-status arrangement, the Israeli government pledged to “give high priority to the Jordanian historic role” when weighing any deal.

Last week, Arab lawmakers stormed out of a meeting of the Knesset Committee for the Interior which was devoted to the issue of Jewish visitation rights on the Temple Mount.

The Arab MKs wildly and ferociously denounced Bayit Yehudi and Likud lawmakers before exiting the proceedings.
Look, I don't have a problem with Jews not going there. I have a problem with us needing to 'consult' Arab Muslim 'leaders' to make that decision. Jordan ought not to have any say in this.

Read the whole thing.

Your rabbis are right in Jews not being allowed to pray in halachically forbidden sections of the Temple Mount.

Apart from that, there is no legal Jewish prohibition on praying anywhere else there. Certainly, if its halal for the Arabs, it ought to be kosher for the Jews.

And Carl - no - G-d won't curse you if you do ascend there and pray in a permitted area. If He's angry, its because Jews ignore Him rather than offering Him due homage.

Carl, the Rambam went to Har Habayit. In the vicinity of the Al Aqsa mosque, there used to be a Beit Knesset on Har Habayit. There is an matter of Leshichno Tidreshu. Start thinking anew. I have been through the same path.
