Jews Arrested For Temple Mount Prayer

Via The Times Of Israel:

Four Jewish Israelis were arrested at the Temple Mount Wednesday after praying in the Jerusalem compound, considered Judaism’s holiest site.

The four prostrated themselves at the site, prompting police to detain them and escort them to a nearby police station for questioning, police said.

Under current laws, Jews are allowed to ascend the mount and pray at the site, which is revered as the location of both ancient Jewish temples.

However, police have the right to veto any visits and in practice prevent both prayer and high-profile Jewish visits.
