Police Quell Arab Fears That Jews Will Pray on the Temple Mount

( The leading officer in the Jerusalem Police Force met recently with Arab religious figures from the eastern part of the city. They are said to have discussed fears that a Jewish group intends to ascend the Temple Mount with tens of thousands of worshippers. Reports of such a mass prayer have appeared in the Arab press, in the wake of posters to that effect being posted in the capital. But, the police officer, Assistant Commander Yoram Halevy, made it clear that no request for any such prayer gathering has been received. He also reiterated that police only approve requests for small (up to twelve people) groups to visit the Mount.

The Temple Mount is under control of the Waqf Islamic authority, and Jewish prayer on the site is forbidden. The Temple Mount is the holiest Jewish site. It was home to the First and Second Jewish Temples and is the purported site of the expected Third Temple.
