Minister seeks to ban extremist Muslim groups from Temple Mt

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan Tuesday announced steps to ban from Temple Mount, in Jerusalem, two extremist Muslim groups which plague Jewish visitors to the shrine with screaming abuse, curses and pushing.
The Morabitun for men and Morabitat for women were established by the northern branch of the Islamic Movement of Israel to harass non-Muslim visitors and pilgrims until they leave. Erdan has asked the defense minister for an order to declare the two groups illegal, in order to preserve the status quo and law and order on this sensitive site.
