Skip to comments.Police contain riot at sensitive Jerusalem holy site

Israeli police fired stun grenades on Sunday to disperse 150 Palestinians who hurled stones at Jewish worshipers visiting a sensitive religious site in the Old City before the start of the holiest day for Jews.
Two policemen were lightly wounded, a spokesman said, and Palestinian medics said they evacuated a Palestinian man suffering from a head injury. Police restored calm and closed the complex after the incident.
The incident occurred before Yom Kippur in the complex known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as al-Harm al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary). It houses al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock and overlooks the Western Wall, a Jewish prayer site.
Israel captured the Temple Mount in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed it with the rest of East Jerusalem, in a move not recognised internationally.
Israeli police are on alert in mixed Arab-Jewish cities, including Jerusalem, fearing riots on Yom Kippur when many Jews fast and abstain from driving.

Could someone remind me - they trashed Joseph’s Tomb last year right - it’s basically gone now?
And they trashed, vandalized, and urinated in the church in Bethlehem where Christ was born.
They are ANIMALS......uncivilized human beings.
Correction. Israel "regained control" of the Temple Mount a move most Israels could care less about whether or not the international community likes, accepts or "recognizes" or not.
Unfortunately, I don't think you are correct about this.
Isreal cares about what the international community thinks, enough so that they have not razed the Dome of the Rock and started rebuilding their Temple.
You may be correct but one thing's certain. God could care less what the international community thinks and with that I am on His side.
Keep Your Eye on The Prize, Folks.
I know that this is a topic for another thread but let me say this... Israel has not raised the Dome of the Rock because it does not need to be raised in order for the Israelis to rebuild their temple. In fact scripture says (I'm paraphrasing here because I don't feel like looking it up right now; sorry) there will be a wall between the gentiles and the Jews. Here you can read more On The Location of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem.
Thanks for the link.
If the third theory is correct, then they can build their temple without disturbing the other sites.
It would still probably start a war, though.
