      Muslim Children Stone Jews on Temple Mount. 2 Arrested

      Muslim children pelted a group of Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City with rocks, Monday morning. Yehuda Glick, manager of the LIBA organization for Jewish freedom on the Temple Mount, who was there for a family thanksgiving event, said that a police officer chased the children and caught two of them.

      LIBA is calling for removal of Muslim classes from the Temple Mount in the wake of increasing violent attacks by the students. LIBA says the classes should be put in other area schools and claims that the presence of the school, including the kids' soccer matches, runs contrary to the holy nature of the site.
