Diaspora Relations Minister Naftali Bennett, who is also israel's Religious Services Minister and a Zionist Orthodox Jew, misrepresents the history and location of the new "egalitarian" plaza south of the actual Kotel (Western Wall) prayer area. Not only that, Bennett did it on a self-made video in English.
In the self-made video, Bennett is standing to the right of a solid ramp, out of sight and earshot of the actual Kotel (Western Wall) prayer area, while standing on a temporary platform a good 20 feet away from the wall he is hyping as the Kotel for all Jews.
When Bennett points and says the Temple was up here, he is wrong (or lying).
The Temple was in fact far to the left of the screen, many hundreds of feet away.
What he calls the "regular" Kotel (Western Wall) prayer area for haredim and Orthodox Jews is much closer to where the Temple stood, and the far end of the prayer area inside the arch there actually abuts it. (The arched entrance, always open for haredi and Orthodox prayer, is to the front of the above picture just to the left and slightly below the word "Kotel.")
Further, Jews did not historically use the Robinson's Arch area Bennett is hyping as the new Kotel of "all of Israel" for prayer.
Most importantly, Bennett's new Kotel for egalitarian use violates a court decision that specifically ruled that Women of the Wall can pray in the regular women's section of the regular Kotel, and that police have no legal right to stop them but do have a legal obligation to stop haredim from harassing Women of the Wall.
Is Bennett lying? Or is he simply ignorant or misguided?
You can make that judgement for yourselves. My personal judgement here is that the trifecta is true: Bennett is lying, but he is also ignorant and misguided, as well:
