Arabs Accuses Jewish Worshippers of 'Storming' Al Aqsa Mosque

(IsraelNN.com) The Al Jazeera Arab site has accused "dozens of Jewish extremists" of storming the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and clashing with Moslem guards. The charge was made after the worshippers won a court appeal allowing them to pray on the Temple Mount between for a short time.

United Press International (UPI) quoted Arab sources as saying that members of the Temple Mount Guardians "performed religious rituals inside the mosque's yard" after the court for the "the first time in 30 years [granted] permission" to Jews to pray on the site. Mosque director Mohamed Hussein was quoted assaying, "Since the beginning of Ramadan, the holy month of fasting for Muslim, extremist settler groups intensified their attacks against the mosque. These acts, and the courtŐs decision, could lead to dangerous results."

On Monday, the eve of the Sukkot holiday, the High Court of Justice handed down a ruling officially permitting Jews to pray on the Temple Mount but stipulated that prayers must conclude by 9 a.m. in order to prevent a confrontation with Moslems, who usually arrive at that time.

The decision set a precedent as it permits Jews not only to visit the Mount but also to pray there. Such a position has not been taken by the court since at least 1976.
