      Jordan Upset By Jewish Prayers at Temple Mount

      The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is drafting a complaint to file with the United Nations Education, Culture and Science Organization stating they are offended by Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount, according to an article in Haaretz.
      Jordan has formulated the petition along with other Arab states that condemns Israel for allowing Jewish prayer at the holy site as well as reinforcing and refurbishing the wooden bridge that leads from the Western Wall to the Temple Mount. They are also demanding that Israel coordinate all archeological excavations in Jerusalem Old City with the Jordanian government.
