Where a Jew prays determines one losing his/her gun permit, is way beyond me.
Jewish Woman Loses Gun For ‘Praying on Temple Mount’
In the middle of an Arab terror wave centered around Jerusalem’s Old City, a 55-year-old female Jewish resident of the restive area has had her license to carry a handgun removed by the Internal Security Ministry.
The reason given for removing her means of self-defense? According to the ministry, police claim she “prayed on the Temple Mount,” the holiest site in Judaism.
The woman, Feiga Tavnes, has lived in the Old City for the past 35 years. For all of those 35 years she has held a license to carry a firearm and owned a personal handgun, and in all those years she has never been investigated or run afoul of the law.
However, specifically now as Arab terror attacks have ramped up in the area around her home, she was ordered to hand over her gun.
The reason given in the letter asking her to do so was simply “a recommendation of the Israel police for…praying on the Temple Mount, and therefore due to the danger it is recommended to cancel her license.”
Making the incident all the more surprising is the fact that Tavnes has never been investigated by the police for praying on the Temple Mount, which even if she had been would not constitute a legal grounds to remove her gun license.
The Jordanian Waqf has been left in de facto control of the Mount, where it has banned Jewish prayer despite Israeli laws and court rulings stipulating freedom of worship.
Adding to the seriousness of the move to negate her license is the fact that Tavnes’s husband previously was stabbed by an Arab terrorist right by their house. The move also comes after Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat called on all license-holding Jerusalemites to carry their weapons at all times.
