Call for Jewish Section on Mount Gains Momentum

Calls to create a partition between two sections of the Temple Mount, one for Jewish use and the other for Muslims, are gaining momentum, as police prepare to close off the Mount to Jews for five straight days. The Israel Police intend to deny Jews entry to the Mount from the coming Friday until next Tuesday, supposedly because Muslims are holding celebrations there marking the end of the Ramadan month.
