Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered Likud lawmaker Moshe Feiglin not to ascend the Temple Mount.
Moshe Feiglin, a Knesset member from the Likud-Beiteinu Party, was prevented from entering the Dome of the Rock and then removed from the Temple Mount.
Moshe Feiglin of the Likud Party offered a plan to pay Palestinian families to emigrate from the West Bank.
After his overwhelming victory in the Likud's leadership primary last week, Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu might have felt well on the way to succeeding Ehud Olmert as prime minister. For months he had been leading in polls for the premiership, and was now seemingly in control of his party.
