Police Restrict Temple Mount Prayers

reprinted from Arutz 7
Tevet 13, 5769, 09 January 09 07:17

Jerusalem Police announced Thursday that Friday prayers on the Temple Mount would be limited due to the risk of riots. Muslim men under the age of 50 will not be allowed to enter the Temple Mount to pray in the Al-Aksa mosque. Muslim women of all ages will be allowed into the mosque.

The age limit is meant to exclude those most likely to riot from taking part in the prayers, where preachers have been known to incite worshipers to violence. Police are particularly wary of riots due to tensions over the IDF operation in Gaza and violent protests against the operation in Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem.
