The World

January 15, 1986

Hundreds of Arabs threatening "blood and fire" surrounded Israeli members of Parliament on a new inspection tour of the Temple Mount, which is sacred to Muslims as well as to Jews. Police used tear gas to disperse the Arabs, and the Israelis were forced to flee. No injuries were reported in the incident, the second in less than a week. Witnesses said the Arabs angrily confronted the rightist Knesset members when one of them, Rabbi Eliezer Waldman of the rightist Tehiya party, tried to read a Jewish prayer.
