On today's "Reality Bytes Radio, with Josh Hasten," Josh discusses his emotional tour of the Temple Mount with guide extraordinaire "Judean" Eve Harow. While Israel ultimately has control over the site, the Muslim Waqf (trust) runs day to day operations and clearly discriminates against non-Muslims who visit, not allowing them to express themselves religiously.

Also on the show ZOA Israel Director Jeff Daube gives an update on the trial of the Arab terrorists accused of murdered Asher and Yonatan Palmer in a premeditated rock attack near Hevron. The court was in session this week as Micahel Palmer and the rest of the family was commemorating the first Yartzeit (memorial) of the tragedy. In addition Daube gives an update on how he is involved with the work being carried out by the Regavim organization to stop illegal Arab/Bedouin building and other illegal activity all over the country.
