This link seems to have all the photos http://matzav.com/photos-tisha-bav-5777-at-the-kosel-jdn/

The link posted (1949 years) takes me to a blank page filled with ads, no room for pics there.

Thanks for posting. What a three weeks we had!

Stop the gay parade in Yerushalayim on 3 August 2017, Am Yisrael! You loose all the merit acquired for ascending the Har HaBayit on Tisha b'Av. Rami

Thanks - I corrected the link.

Anonymous,

I agree that the parade should be stopped and is a huge Hillul Hashem.

However, I don't agree that ascending Har Habayit on Tish'a Be'av was something meritorious. Actually, it goes against the majority of rabbis and the entirety of great rabbis.

I don't buy the התגרות באומות argument so much, but the halachic argument is pretty valid. We don't play around with a ספק כרת - no matter whether it's ספק חלב ספק שומן, whether it's ספק אשתו ספק אחותו, or whether it's ספק ביאת מקדש בטומאה ספק אינה ביאת מקדש בטומאה, the consequences are the same. Those who claim they know the precise measurements nowadays are ignoring historic halachic doubt in the matter which cannot be overlooked.

Alas, it is something that should be awaited. Hopefully, not long.

Yaak, there isn't full sanctity on Hat haBayit until shekhinah is well established. And shekhinah was taken away after the destruction of the second Temple. It's nonsens to assume that the mastering of Arabs of Har haBayit was accompanied by the presence of shekhinah.
On the other hand the presence of Jews on Har haBayit determines Hashem to speed up the descending of shekhinah. It's happening now. Rami

Rami,

Quite the contrary. The sanctity of the place remains even today according to all Rishonim except for one. Even if the Shechina left, the sanctity remains. The presence of the Arabs on the site is most unfortunate - but so is the presence of Jews on the site who are spiritually unclean.

I don't believe that Jews ascending Har Habayit forces Hashem's hand in expediting the Geula. I might argue that it does the opposite. That is because the Safek Karet issue is still a major problem.

We may understand the Arabs boycotting Har haBayit, but for Jews to avoid ascending is utterly nonsense. How a place devoted of shekhinah could be sanctified? It's shekhinah, Hashem's holy spirit, sanctifying places and people! Rami

I'm not understanding your argument.

Regardless, the site should be devoid of all people due to its sanctity. We all have an assumption of having Tum'at Met upon us until a valid Parah Aduma is found, burned, and sprinkled upon us. We cannot ascend since the prohibition of going to certain places within the Temple Mount compound - which almost all Rishonim agree still has sanctity - contains a punishment of Karet. Since the measurements are not known with certainty, anyone who ascends is spiritually playing Russian roulette with their life.

Not to mention the fact that even those who ascend the mount with purity (Tevila, etc.) from Tum'at Keri and are careful to go where they assume is not the Heil (where it is prohibited to go due to Tum'at Met) -
even though it's possible they are wrong, but let's assume for argument's sake that they are right - these people cause others who don't necessarily know these laws to also ascend without Tevila and without being careful from entering the Heil (and further in).

Therefore, those who are G-d-fearing should listen to the rabbis who say not to enter period.
