Call to close Temple Mount to Arabs

Deputy Mayor Dov Kalmanovich has called for closing the Temple Mount to Arabs in response to Wednesday morning's riots on the Mount.
"Tomorrow there will be Birkat Kohanim (the Priestly Blessing Ceremony - ed.), the Chief Rabbis will visit the Western Wall and thousands will flood the Jewish quarter," Kalmanovitz noted to Arutz Sheva, adding that many foreign tourists had visited to celebrate the Passover holiday. 
"It is inconceivable that the Israeli Police prevents Jews, who want to ascend the Temple Mount, from entering, and allows Arabs - who riot - to continue to respect the mosques there and throw stones," he added. Kalmanovitz then called on police "to maintain security" at the Mount - "either by allowing Jews to ascend to the Mount or by closing it completely." 
"We need to make order out of the chaos which erupts at the site every holiday," he stressed. "I already expect Arabs to throw stones tomorrow at the Western Wall. We should teach the Arabs a lesson for once and close it for them [too]."
Kalmanovitz was the first victim of the 1987 'non-violent' 'Palestinian' intifada when the car in which he was traveling was ignited by a Molotov cocktail. 

It's a nice idea but there is very little chance that this spineless government would take that kind of action.
