“The United States is deeply concerned about the growing tension in Jerusalem, especially on the Temple Mount,” US Secretary of State John Kerry stated in response to the assassination attempt against Yehuda Glick last Wednesday.

Following the recent events, Kerry published a special statement relating to the violent incidents recently in the Israeli capital city, where he called on both sides to exercise restraint. “It is critical that the parties will act with restraint and avoid provocative statements,” Kerry stated, adding that the status quo should be maintained on the Temple Mount.

“The continued commitment of the Palestinians, Jordanians and Israel to maintaining the status quo in this holy site is critical,” the US Secretary of State added. “Any decision to change the situation will be both provocative and dangerous.”

Kerry noted that he has close ties with the leaders in the region in order to help calm the situation in the Holy City. “I call on leaders to work collaboratively together to reduce tensions and stop the violence,” he stated.

Kerry denounced the attempted assassination of Yehuda Glick, who also holds US citizenship, adding that his thoughts and his prayers are with the family.

    “Kerry noted that he has close ties with the leaders in the region”

    Kerry is a joke of the poorest taste, he has no positive relationship with the Israeli leadership, in fact he is directly responsible for the deteriorating relationship between Israel and the Anti-Israel, Jew hating Obama Administration. The “close ties” he boasts of, are terrorist organizations such as Fatah, Hamas and the illegal occupier of the the Temple Mount, aka the kingdom of Jordan. These “close ties” have manipulated him and will drop him like a hot potato when he is no longer useful to their agenda.

    The “status quo” he talks about is the continued illegal occupation of the Temple Mount, the Holiest site in Judaism. This place has no history in islam other than Islam’s continued occupation.

    Jerusalem is not mentioned one time in the Qu’eeran, and the only contribution to the Temple mount Islam has made is the construction of a huge gold domed out-house and the
    destruction of any historic artifacts connecting the site to Judaism.
