Unexpected Support for Jewish Prayer on Temple Mount

reposted from Arutz 7

Deputy Director-General Shachar Ilan of the Chidush (Freedom of Religion and Equality) organization said, Thursday, that he was interested in letting Jews pray on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City. Jews are currently detained by police if they do anything that looks like praying on the holy site for fear it may antagonize area Muslims.

Interviewed by Kol Yisrael government radio, Ilan said the idea that a Jew cannot pray at the holy site is not valid in his eyes, adding that it should happen if it's possible from the standpoint of the security forces. He stressed that there was no symmetry between the ban on Temple Mount prayer and the ban on the prayer of the "Women of the Wall" among orthodox Jews because steps on the Temple Mount could raise regional tensions.
