Jewish Worshipper Arrested on Temple Mount

January 7, 2004
From Today's Jerusalem Post


An Israeli visiting the Temple Mount Wednesday morning was arrested by police after he prostrated himself on the ground in prayer, police said. The suspect was removed from the area and taken into custody. They described him as being uncooperative during his interrogation.

Prayer at the site is not permitted for non-Moslem visitors, and police have repeatedly arrested Jews who have attempted to pray there.

The temple mount was reopened to non-Moslem visitors four months ago by police after nearly 3 years, during which the site was off-limits to Jews and Christians due to concern over renewed Palestinian violence.
