Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem Calls to Close Temple Mount to Arabs

Second to the Mayor of Jerusalem, Mr. Dov Kalmanovitch, called to the Israeli Police Department to close Temple Mount to Arabs during Jewish holidays.

His words are particularly poignant following this morning’s riots on the Mount by Arabs, wounding an officer on duty.

Kalmanovitch asks that during the Jewish holidays that do not overlap with Moslem holidays, the site be closed to Arabs as such riots keep tourists away, among other reasons.
