JERUSALEM Israeli forces stormed Jerusalem's holiest shrine Sunday, firing stun grenades to disperse hundreds of stone-throwing Palestinian protesters in a fresh eruption of violence at the most volatile spot in the Holy Land.
A wall of Israeli riot police behind plexiglass shields closed in on the crowd, sending many protesters overwhelmingly young men running for cover into the black-domed Al-Aqsa mosque. The mosque is one part of the compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary.
Dozens of protesters remained holed up inside the mosque for several hours, occasionally opening shuttered doors to throw objects at police. The Israeli forces did not enter the building, and the protesters eventually left peacefully and the compound was closed, police said. There were no serious injuries.
Israel's national police chief, David Cohen, accused a small group of Muslim extremists of trying to foment violence echoing a charge made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu two weeks ago.

These jokers keep tossing petrol bombs,, the whole thing is gonna be burned down and available for putting in a strip mall in place of any temples, mosques or sanctuaries. ;-).
I believe God’s will is for the Jewish People to restore the Temple.
I’m starting to see a lot of camels slipping through the eyes of needles these days....
The time has come to tear down the Al-Aqsa mosque.
And I agree. That disgusting building should be razed to the ground.
The guy in the first picture needs to do some serious sit-ups and crunches (I should talk).
Perhaps he should work more on general conditioning than his pitching skills.
 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
Religion of Peace.......
After 1967, no Muslim foot should ever have touched the soil on the Temple mount. It was foolish to GIVE the Muslims access and control.
The mosque is one part of the compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the arms room.
