Jew, 76, Arrested for Blessing G-d on Temple Mount

September 25, 2011  

Temple Mount Police arrested a 76-year-old Jewish man Sunday after he recited a blessing before drinking some water. Yosef Hacohen felt ill during a tour of the Temple Mount and wanted to take a sip from a water bottle. As another member of the group he was a part of supported him, he recited the “shehakol” blessing that precedes drinking of beverages. 

This aroused the ire of three Muslim Wakf men who had been following the 30-member group of which Hacohen was a participant. 

He was detained for questioning.

A Muslim man tried to provoke Shouraki during the tour and told him: “[Hamas leader] Ismail Haniyeh will send rockets at you and [Iranian leader Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad will finish you off. This is your end.”
