An organization called Women for the Temple has called for greater religious freedom on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City. Rina Ariel, a member of the group said that a recent attempts by Jewish female residents were physically blocked by Muslim female residents. "We try to go up regularly, twice a month. In recent months there has been a lot of Muslim women sitting in front of us, or walking in our path. They scream and kneel in front of us," Ariel told Arutz Sheva news on Wednesday. The Temple Mount is the site of the Beit HaMikdash, the holiest location in Judaism. The women undergo a ritual purification process before ascending to the Temple Mount and only walk on the outer lying pathway to show reverence for the site. Ariel said it was unfair that Muslim residents could enter at any time and through multiple gates but that Jewish women were restricted by the Israeli police and the Muslim Waqf to only one gate and had their privileges revoked for what she called arbitrarily reasons.
