Court Releases Jews Detained on Temple Mount


The Jerusalem District Court overturned on Monday night the decision of the Jerusalem Magistrates Court and rejected a police request to detain a group of worshipers who came to the Temple Mount and were arrested for praying, waving the Israeli flag and singing the Israeli national anthem. The court ordered their immediate release and banned them from the Temple Mount until the end of the month.

"The court ruled that there is nothing wrong with a Jew who wants to sing the national anthem and fly his country’s flag," said one of the detainees after being released.
