Gag order lifted on Old City Jerusalem incident

Sunday, April 27, 10:11 On Friday, April 11 two youths were detained in the Old City of Jerusalem as they posted posters calling on Muslims to vacate the Temple Mount in order to facilitate building the Holy Temple. See below for complete text of the poster. The police, who categorized the act as a “Price Tag” incident, requested a gag order on the case. The court granted the request, which outraged senior journalists in the Israeli media. For details see screen shots taken of journalists’ statements in social media forums and the translations thereof below. Later the same day the youths were released on condition of a restraining order banning them from entering the Old City for 30 days. The police removed the gag order on Sunday, April 27 and released the following announcement: Cleared for publication: On 11/4 policemen from Merchav David [Old City District] detained two Jewish youth, one 18 years of age from the central region of Israel and the other a minor and a resident of Jerusalem, after they hung a sign on one of the gates of the Temple Mount designated for Muslim worshipers calling on Muslims to vacate the Temple Mount due to construction work for building the Holy Temple. Due to the alertness of the policemen the two suspects were detained as they held in their possession additional signs with the same text. The suspects were interrogated by the National Unit of Serious and International Crime Investigations at the Central Police Unit in Jerusalem. During their interrogation they refused to cooperate. The two were brought to the Jerusalem Magistrate Court which gave them a restraining order banning them from entering the Old City for 30 days. The case will be transferred to the Attorney General’s office within the coming days. Complete text of poster: You are requested to vacate the Temple Mount compound
