Netanyahu Holds Secret Meeting with Abdullah over Temple Mount
Kuwaiti paper says PM met Jordanian king and told him he may block Jews from entering Temple Mount.
Kuwaiti newspaper Al Jarida reported Monday morning that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu held a secret meeting with Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Saturday, in the Jordanian capital of Amman.
The meeting was intended to try and calm inflamed tensions in Jerusalem, following the temporary decision to stop all visits to the Temple Mount last week. That decision was made following the assassination attempt against Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick on Wednesday, who championed the struggle for Jewish prayer rights at the holiest site in Judaism.
According to the report, as cited by Channel 2’s website, Netanyahu told Abdullah at the meeting that he is considering blocking Jews from entering the Temple Mount.
