JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Likud MK Moshe Feiglin toured the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Monday under heavy armed guard, a Palestinian official said.

Azzam al-Khatib, the director of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, told Ma'an that Feiglin was escorted around the compound by Israeli police officers.

A group of around 50 right-wing Jews also toured the area, he added.

In February, the Israeli Knesset began a debate called by right-wingers to demand that Israel end its practice of forbidding Jewish prayer at the Al-Aqsa compound.

In a motion which was not put to a vote, MP Moshe Feiglin, a hardline member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party, said Israel's fear of igniting Muslim rage amounted to discrimination against Jews.

Due to the sensitive nature of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Israel maintains a compromise with the Islamic trust that controls the compound -- overseen by Jordan -- to restrict the area for Muslim prayers.

Israeli forces, however, regularly escort Jewish visitors to the site, often leading to tension with local Palestinians.

East Jerusalem has been occupied by Israeli forces since 1967.

Everyone , with even a bird brain , realizes that the tour of Feiglin to the Al Haram al Sharif is NOT for the purpose of "prayer". These moves are calculated political moves to incite violence , to buck the status quo , to establish control and exert power. Nothing else.

If palestinians or Muslims have problem with Jews visiting site of the Temple Mount it's too bad, but they will get over. If they do not want to see Jews they can leave Israel and it's capital Jerusalem and go to Melaka or Medina. But in Israel any Jews and any peaceful visitor can go to Jerusalem and visit Temple Mount. That how it is in Israel and that's how it always will be. However does not like it can leave Israel and go to other places.

Not surprisingly, Fieglin is a big Hitler fan: '...Hitler was an unparalleled military genius. Nazism promoted Germany from a low to a fantastic physical and ideological status. The ragged, trashy youth body turned into a neat and orderly part of society and Germany received an exemplary regime, a proper justice system and public order. Hitler savored good music. He would paint. This was no bunch of thugs....' He is also not atypical for an Israeli: he heads the largest faction in Likud.
