Muslims claim to have stopped Jews from praying on Temple Mount

The Al Aqsa Foundation  reports that a fight broke out as vigilant Muslim guards on the Temple Mount physically stopped Jews from "performing Talmudic rituals" there, as the guards were doing their holy duty of ensuring that only pure Islamic prayers emanate from Judaism's holiest site.

Arutz-7 reports it a little differently:
A Jewish man has been arrested on the Temple Mount on suspicion of attacking a Muslim man at the site, according to the Honenu legal rights group.

The man says he did not attack the Muslim man, but rather was the victim of an unprovoked attack. The man was visiting the Mount with friends in honor of Passover when, he says, the Muslim man approached the group and began insulting them, and then physically attacking.

Police refused to arrest the Muslim man despite testimony from the Jewish group that he had been the one attacking.

Notably, the supposedly secular and independent Ma'an News Agency in Arabic reports on the incident in the same terms used by the extremist Muslims: they say that "Jewish settlers" were "storming" the site to perform "Talmudic" rituals when the altercation broke out.

Ma'an illustrates the story with another shocking image of Jews desecrating the courtyard. Makes your blood boil, doesn't it?
