Those who ascended to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem this week reported a large amount of garbage.

Rabbi Chaim Richman, the host of Israel National Radio's Temple Talk, stated on his program on Tuesday, "This morning I was on the Temple Mount and it's a big mess right now. There's a lot of garbage that's been sitting there for a week and a half since the end of the month-long Ramadan happening and Eid al-Fitr. That week, the Temple Mount was closed to Jewish people. When we went afterward, there was garbage and litter everywhere."

Rabbi Richman also noted the raising of flags on the site as well. To hear the full report and to view photos, download the latest episode of Temple Talk with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven by clicking here.
