( Jerusalem police are preparing the visit of a large number of rabbis and Land of Israel activists to the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site, Tuesday.

The mass ascent called for prayers at the site "for the annulment of the wicked plans to divide Jerusalem and surrender the Temple Mount to foreigners and enemies."

Public Security Minister Avi Dichter has ordered police to be strict about preventing Jewish prayer at the site. Silent moving of the lips is illegal for Jews on the Temple Mount, according to Dichter.

Jerusalem police are preparing to prevent religious Zionist and settler rabbis from holding prayers on the Temple Mount Tuesday morning.

The rabbis used posters to exhort supporters to pray at the mount "for the annulment of the wicked plans for the division of Jerusalem and the surrender and abandonment of the Temple Mount to the hands of foreigners and adversaries."

The planned protest comes shortly after Public Security Minister Avi Dichter made it clear that Jews are not allowed to pray in any overt manner on the Temple Mount, even including merely moving their lips in prayer.

The rabbis are expected to be allowed entry to the Temple Mount as long as they do not pray there.
