The Israel Today:
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat last week said it was time for Israel to finally implement true religious freedom and allow Jews to pray atop the Temple Mount.
“The government is ultimately responsible for whether or not Jews can pray on the Temple Mount, not the Jerusalem municipality,” Barkat told students at a religious high school. “My opinion is that everyone should be able to pray there.”
Technically, anyone can pray there, but threats of Muslim violence have resulted in a police policy forbidding Jews and Christians from even mouthing prayers while visiting the Temple Mount.
