Muslim Scholar Favors Jewish Temple Mount Prayer

Despite its status as the holiest site in Judaism, Jews are banned from praying on the Temple Mount (as are other non-Muslims) due to pressure and threats from Muslim groups – not least among them the Waqf Islamic trust, which administers the site under Jordanian auspices as per Jordan’s peace treaty with Israel.


Jewish activists have been campaigning to change that, branding such measures illegal and discriminatory – and have faced hostility and even violence, sometimes deadly, by Muslim extremists in response.
