  • Why does Israel restrict access to temple mount?

    Best answer: Concerning restricted access to the Temple Mount: It depends. For non-Muslims, it has to do with the religious tension that exists within the area.

    Best answer: Concerning restricted access to the Temple Mount: It depends. For non-Muslims, it has to do with the religious tension that exists within the area. Christians and Jews, despite having some sort of religious connection to the area, aren't allowed to pray or make any sort of "religious demonstration" there whatsoever, and have to restrict themselves to just being tourists. Apparently it is offensive to Muslims, even if it's outside the mosque and shrine areas, to show one's faith if it isn't Islamic. In addition, there is political pressure to keep Jews from the area as it'll be seen as a provocation. Basically, they really don't like the mostly Jewish Israelis, and think that increased Jewish visitation will for some reason will end up with them losing their rights or their holy spots. There is no precedent for believing such (quite the opposite) but it's part of what's preached up there and people just buy it.

    However, when it comes to Muslim restrictions on the area: It has to do with security. I allude to the Imams riling up the masses in the previous paragraph, but here I'll directly state that they do encourage Palestinians (especially young, impressionable Palestinian men) to act in a hostile manner towards Israel. This includes rioting, which can get really bad. For example, I know of one instance where Molotov cocktails were thrown. Because Israel doesn't want to deal with these things, they naturally do what they can to reduce it....and that includes placing restrictions on who can attend. It is always in response to violence, and is usually lifted if there is a relative calm afterwards.

    As for gay marriage: It's actually legal in Israel, technically speaking. What isn't is performing it within Israel's boarders; however, it is recognized if done abroad and one can get the full legal benefits that come with marriage that way. The ceremony of marriage is restricted to certain religious courts, none of which are interested in performing these ceremonies. Those who may, for example the Reform Jewish congregations, don't have the authority to marry people in a legal manner. All they can do is do ceremonies that do not carry any legal weight, but for those people it's "in the eyes of G-d" anyway who doesn't care about man-made law like that. So, gay couples (like many straight Israeli couples) go abroad to complete their legal unions.

    I don’t remember when or where i heard this story, but there was this fat guy on a commercial plane. He was on the seat closest to the middle aisle and he was sticking out onto the aisle. The pilot saw this as a hazard since he was in the way of walking, so they decided to move the man who was sitting next to him onto another seat so that the fat guy could use 2 seats to be comfortable. The flight airline decided to not charge him for an extra seat, and this is understandable since he already paid the ticket, but here’s my question; if you take 2 seats, should you be charged for both or just be charged per person? ☆ Sent from iOS Dr. Know! 1.1.04

    Noticed this question "Trump ran on helping the middle class, his budget cuts 1,7 trillion from social programs, how will that help the middle class?" in Yahoo Answers. The "1,7 trillion" stood out like a sore thumb. Americans, real ones, don't use the comma as a decimal point. We use the point as in 1.7 trillion. So who's submitting the question pretending to be an American? And what's Yahoo doing to protect us from Russian trolls?
