    US Calls on Israel To Ban Jews from Temple Mount after attacks by muslims

    -For the third straight day on Tuesday, Israeli Police and Palestinians clashed on the Temple Mount, drawing sharp criticism from the UN, the US and the Muslim world.

    As police escorted Jews going up to the site on the second day of the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hasana, they were met by dozens of Palestinians who attacked them with rocks, iron bars and firecrackers. A firebomb was also thrown at police, setting wooden beams on fire. The rioters attempted to barricade themselves inside the al Aqsa Mosque but police forced their way in, using tear gas and stun grenades.

    Five policemen were lightly injured and an unspecified number of Palestinians were arrested. The director of the Palestinian Red Crescent emergency unit, Amin Abu Ghazaleh, reported that 26 Arabs were injured.

    United States State Department spokesman John Kirby condemned the clashes on Monday, stating, "The United States is deeply concerned by the increase in violence and escalating tensions surrounding the Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount. We strongly condemn all acts of violence."

    "It is absolutely critical that all sides exercise restraint, refrain from provocative actions and rhetoric and preserve unchanged the historic status quo on the Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount," he added. The "historical status quo" Kirby is referring to is a ban on Jews on the Temple Mount.

    In response, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed Tuesday evening in a special security meeting that "rioters would not be allowed to prevent Jews from visiting the Mount," a Foreign Ministry statement said...

    I have been to the Temple mount...it is sad to see muslims controlling it.....some of the trouble makers are the muslim women
    Some extremist Orthodox Jews don't help as they want to stir up tension

    It really belongs to Israel and they should control it but there will be WW3 if they stopped the current system

    God will one day redeem it but presently it is 'not a Holy place' but a significant historical place
