Temple Mount and Eretz Yisrael Faithful Movement

The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement (or Temple Mount Faithful) was founded by Gershon Salomon, a former officer in the Israel Defence Forces who lectures on Middle Eastern studies. The group seeks the removal of two Islamic holy places from the Temple Mount as the first step in the rebuilding of a Jewish Temple there and the reinstitution of the ancient Jewish sacrificial rite.

Their aim is supported only by a small minority of the Israeli public. Numerous times, in particular during the Al-Aqsa Intifada, the Temple Mount Faithful were forbidden to ascend on the Temple Mount out of fear of leading to clashes with the Muslim Arabs on the site. In these cases, the Faithful complied with the authorities.
