Why this petition matters

Started by Cry For Zion

The Temple Mount is the holiest place on earth for the Jewish people. It was here that King Solomon built the First Holy Temple 3,000 years ago. Here, the Jewish Temples stood for centuries, before the Al Aqsa Mosque became the third holiest site for Muslims, after Mecca and Medina.

At present on the Mount, non-Muslims are discriminated against and are not even allowed to move their lips in silent prayer, contrary to numerous Supreme Court rulings. They are routinely harassed and abused—forbidden from bringing a Bible or prayer book, and even their access is severely restricted.

At the Western Wall, which is under Jewish sovereignty, people from all over the world are welcome to respectfully pray.

The State of Israel has an obligation to uphold Jewish sovereignty and international human rights on the Temple Mount, which include freedom of worship (according to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 18).

More than 1,000 experts from thirty countries around the world have acknowledged that East Jerusalem is not an occupied territory under international law, and the State of Israel has officially declared its sovereignty over all of Jerusalem.

Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount is in the best interest of the human, civil, and religious rights of all people groups in Israel, including the Arab minorities.

We are the voice from the international community that supports the Jewish people’s rights to sovereignty over Mt Zion—the Temple Mount.

We appeal to the ruling bodies of Israel to exercise their full, legal sovereignty, guaranteeing Jewish rights on their most holy place.


“For on My holy mountain, on the lofty mount of Israel—declares the Lord God—there all the house of Israel, all of them, shall serve Me in the land” (Ezekiel 20:40).
