    “the last remaining stone wall of the Beis Hamikdash,”
    A) it is not a wall of the beis hamikdosh .. it is a wall of the temple mount
    B) there ae similar walls around the entire temple mount

    WE WERE THERE

    It’s a shame people bought into their fears, there was no need to be afraid. Everything was quiet, there was plenty of security. We walked back through the old city much later, past an Arab store (we had more sense than to go via the Shuk!) and through Jafa Gate to where we had left our car. It wasn’t totally empty, just not like a can of sardines. There was room. My husband heard Eicha with a group of bochurim from Mayanot & I saw two ladies from Crown Heights; apparently there were more, but I didn’t see them –… Read more »

    empty?

    Perhaps this was just your photographers first time there on this evening, but they’re are a lot of people coming and going, and yes it is not packed like sardines, because not everyone had the energy to make their way to the kotel during a 25 hour fast.

    Less people came then the usual bc of the recent terror attacks in Jerusalem. Normally there would be thousands there

    Yidden have suffered more than enough. Time to be b’Simcha and rejoice. Read the sichah of Nun Aleph parshas Balak pg. 688-689. Try it, SIMCHAH, you will love it. I do. Only simchah since NUN ALEPH.

    Hundreds do the walk around the walls

    Hundreds do the walk around the walls

    This is such a bunch of ignorant media hype. Hundreds of people walk around the outskirts of the walls of the old city on Tisha B’av night. They don’t get to the Kotel until much later on. Others come and go. There are people that ‘sleep’ there all night long. The kotel is NEVER empty! (not even in the rain or snow) certainly not on Tisha B’Av.

    Tisha Bav is not a time that the Kosel is Packed. Chareidim hardly come. They come after the fast for Kiddush Levana. There is also a tradition to walk around the wall of the old city through the arab neighborhoods but I doubt the police would allow it this year.
