Police to Restrict Muslim Entrance to Temple Mount

reprinted from Arutz 7
Feb 23, '07 / 5 Adar 5767

( Police will restrict Muslim entrance to the Temple Mount on Friday. Only those with Israeli citizenship will be able to enter the Mount for prayers in the Al-Aksa mosque. Also, men under the age of 45 will be prohibited to enter.

Friday is the main Muslim day of prayer, and many religious leaders use it to give speeches inciting their followers to violence against Israel. The Al-Aksa mosque in particular has been a site of frequent violence following Friday prayers, with Muslims attacking police officers and Jewish worshippers at the Western Wall with stones. When the potential for violence is particularly high, police often choose to ban entrance for young men, who are the most likely to be involved in attacks.
