Muslims ransacked, looted and burned the police station on the Temple Mount Friday, video and photographs show.

The first of the following videos, posted on Facebook, show the station after it was ransacked.

The second video shows a policeman attempting unsuccessfully to replace the PLO flag that the vandals placed atop the station with the Israeli one that normally flies there.

Photos featured here and on numerous Twitter accounts show Muslim rioters posing with police equipment they took from the station.

There has been extremely violent Muslim rioting in Jerusalem and its environs in the last few weeks, and this violence has spiked during IDF's Operation Protective Edge in Gaza. The violence is largely unreported in most Israeli and global news outlets.
