Israeli Police Stop Arab Violence on Temple Mount

reposted from Arutz 7
Iyar 27, 5773, 07/05/13

There was shouting, chair throwing and two minor injuries, but police succeeded in preventing a larger incident. Police arrested one visitor on the Temple Mount holy site in the Old City of Jerusalem who was of Arab Muslim ethnicity. He was accused of screaming at a group of Jewish pilgrims at the site. Additional Arab visitors began throwing chairs to protest his arrest but police successfully dispersed them and ended any further incidents. Two officers were injured.

The Temple Mount, located above the Western Wall, is the holiest site in Judaism which houses King Solomon's Holy Temple and King Herod's Second Temple. It currently is home to the Muslim Al Aqsa mosque as well as a number of ancient Jewish artifacts dating to Temple times. The site is currently under the auspices of the Muslim Waqf but Israel retains security jurisdiction. Freedom for non-Muslim prayer on the Temple Mount has been in the news as of late.
