Muslims threw rocks at Jewish worshipers praying at the Western Wall after Friday’s Muslim prayers. Police arrested three Muslim attackers. The violence occurred after security forces decided to allow Muslims under the age of 50 to participate in Friday prayers. Usually, men younger than 50 are barred from praying on the Mount if there is an intelligence assessment that riots are being planned. The incident was captured on the Western Wall Heritage Funds Kotel cam. Worshipers can be seen fleeing 11 seconds into the video.
The Palestinian Authority has demanded control of the Temple Mount be handed over to it, and there have been reports that U.S. President Barack Obama supports this idea. However, incidents like the one on Friday have convinced many in Israel that the Muslims would not honor the rights of other religions if they were given power over the holy sites
