Ultra-nationalists barred from Temple Mount

(Supreme Court of Israel:) Ultra-nationalists barred from Temple Mount

Acting on police recommendations, the Supreme Court on Monday barred the leader of the fringe Temple Mount Faithful group, and the head of another small ultra-nationalist organization, from ascending the Temple Mount on Monday morning.

The high court rejected an appeal by Gershon Solomon, and Yehuda Etzion to enter the ancient compound, after police warned that visits by either men could lead to bloodshed at the bitterly contested holy site.

The Temple Mount was reopened to non-Muslims two months ago, after nearly three years when the site was closed off to Jews and Christians due to fears of renewed Palestinian violence. Thousands of visitors have passed through the ancient hilltop in the last eight weeks, with especially long lines at the mount's entrance reported this week during the Succot holiday.

Scores of Israeli visitors who waited nearly two hours outside the compound during the morning visiting hours Sunday were turned away due to the crowd, police said.

On Monday morning thousands of Israelis arrived at the Western Wall for the traditional priestly blessing [Birkat Kohanim]. Due to the immense crowd, police blocked off all entrances to the Old City to private cars.
