Jordan Blasts Israel for Letting Jews Pray at Temple Mount

by JNS.org – April 5, 2018

JNS.org – The government of King Abdullah Hussein of Jordan has filed an official complaint with Israel’s Foreign Ministry for allowing members of the Jewish faith to utter Jewish prayers outside the entrance to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

According to a report by Israel’s Channel 10 news, Jordan went through official channels to express its grievance that “Israel is violating the status quo in the area and is carrying out extreme provocations that harm relations between our two countries.”

The charge is that when Jews speak the words of any Jewish prayers on the Temple Mount — regardless of whether they are Israeli, in groups or even saying the words coherently so that those around them can hear — the act is contrary to a longstanding agreement between Israel and Jordan that allows Jews to walk on the Temple Mount but not to utter prayers of any kind.
