US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Saturday that Israel had promised to maintain the tradition that only Muslims are allowed to pray at the Temple mount.
Kerry met Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordan’s King Abdullah in Amman on Saturday.
“Israel will continue to enforce its long-standing policy on religious worship … at the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif, including the fundamental fact that it is Muslims who pray on the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif, and non-Muslims who visit,” Kerry said after meetings in Amman.
He added that Israeli officials and the Muslim Waqf, custodians who manage the site which houses the al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest site, would meet to discuss ways of easing tensions and that both would provide 24-7 video surveillance there.

From a Messianic perspective, the issue of prayer on the Temple Mount is a non starter. Jesus the Messiah hears prayer even if uttered from a bathroom.
But from a political point of view, banning Jews from praying at the Temple Mount is nothing but racism. Only because you are Jewish, the Israeli police will be ordered to arrest you if you pray for peace at this hot spot.
There can be no better proof, that the god of the Muslims is an intolerant deity. First of all: He demands prayer in arabic. Second the worshippers must turn their butts up against the dome of the rock, and face Mecca. If they don’t do, this “god” wont listen. Third: If any Jew is permitted to open his mouth and pray on this site, hell will break out all over Jerusalem.
This Arabic “allah” is no god at all, but rather a desert demon. Many who worship the god of the Muslims seems to turn psychotic, and raving mad. Just watch on your TV. The level of barbarism come to us unlimited. From Pakistan in the East, to Libya in the West. From Kosovo in the North to Nigeria in the south. Millions of people are on the run, from supposed to be brethren who merciless murder people using swords of firearms.
May Jesus the Son of God open their eyes and hearts. May they accept Him as savior, Lord and God. Amen.
