Sources close to Feiglin said this isn’t the first time he visited the Temple Mount in order to pray. "If the police want to prevent him from praying at the site for fear of riots they must give a detailed explanation and not just ban the practice," one source said.
The sources claim Feiglin was detained and asked to sign a paper stating he will not try to pray at the site again. They noted he refused to sign the paper. Police nevertheless released him with no restrictions.
A similar incident occurred some two months ago. Feiglin was brought before a court on suspicion he violated prayer laws at the Temple Mount.
On Tuesday it was reported that Feiglin, considered the Likud's most extreme figure, was asked not to give interviews by the election campaign. "My messages do not always correspond with the messages my party tries to convey and that is why I stay silent and don't give interviews," he said.
