A court has cleared an Israeli man who stated, “Am Yisrael Chai” or “the people of Israel live” on the Temple Mount and as a result was detained there.
The Temple Mount has some of the most complicated rules for visitors ever. It is supervised by the Islamic Waqf guards, under orders from the Islamic government in Jordan.
Any demonstration of Jewish faith is prohibited there. Christians are not allowed to pray. Muslims are given freedom to do both.
There are lines to access to the site, some for tourists, some for Jews.
And you don’t even to try to understand why it is closed to Jews on Islamic holidays.
It’s the hill where it is believed the first and second Jewish Temples were located.
Centuries later, Muslims took control and built their Al Aqsa mosque and Dome of the Rock there.
