From Miera in Jerusalem:
Here is what what the news agencies are reporting on what is happening on the ground. Editorial point -- there is no such thing as a "Palestinian". It was a marketing term devised by the godfather of Islamic terror in the modern era, Yasser Arafat, to subvert and destroy the Jewish state and kill Jews. "Palestinian" is banned at Atlas.
Several people were arrested a week ago when clashes erupted on the mount and in the surrounding Old City after a group of visitors entered the compound. Palestinians [Muslims] objected, claiming the group comprised far-right Jews, while Israeli media reports said they were French tourists.
Since then, tension has been high,
with the Western Wall that lays alongside the mount the focus of Jewish
prayers for this week's religious holiday, Sukkot (Tabernacles).
REMOVE THE DOME FROM JEWISH LAND. STOP THE ISLAMIC OCCUPATION OF ISRAEL.
On Sunday, Israeli police force decided to restrict the male Muslim worshippers allowed to enter the area to those over 50. During the day, Arabs [Muslims] clashed with the police and the area remained tense on Monday.
At the end of last week,
Palestinian [Muslim] leaders warned that the current impasse in the peace
process is leaving Palestinian [Muslim]feeling frustrated and violence may
spread as a result.
The Jews better start telling it like it really is and stop talking this dhimmi nonsense. Stop deferring to Islamic empire lust and imperialism. It's like the Jews are picking out the stones for their own graves.
About 150 Palestinians [Muslims] rioted near the site Sunday after police in Jerusalem closed the mount to Muslim worshippers and visitors. Police said they did so to minimize the possibility of violence after calls were issued in Palestinian media to "come and protect the Mount."
Palestinians [Muslims] who had finished praying near the mount began to throw stones and bottles at police forces in the area Sunday, Rosenfeld said. Police dispersed the rioters and arrested three; one officer was slightly hurt, he said.
After the Muslims "finished praying," they began stoning the Jews. Get it? This is not a religion. Period.

UPDATE: Temple Mount Again Closed to Jews, Arabs [Muslims] Allowed In Israel National News Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) The Temple Mount was closed to Jews Monday morning for the second day in a row during this holiday week of Sukkot, following an incident in which a group of some 50 Chassidim attempted to reach the Mount of Olives and were attacked by a mob of Arabs.
Male Arab worshipers above the age of 50, women of all ages and children are being allowed to continue to enter the site.
"They were lucky to escape with their lives," Israel Police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld told Israel National News, adding that police would reassess the situation "in a few hours, once the Birkat HaKohanim (blessing of the priestly class on the People of Israel) is completed at the Kotel." He noted that the Temple Mount had been closed to Jews as a precaution "due to the security risks involved."
UPDATE: FROM WND'S JERUSALEM BUREAU What Temple? Fatah says 'only a Muslim holy site' 'U.S. partner' demands Jews, Christians be banned from praying on Mount
JERUSALEM – The Temple Mount does not exist alongside the Western Wall, and neither Jews nor Christians should be allowed to pray on the Mount site, Dimitri Diliani, the spokesman for Fatah in Jerusalem, told WND in an interview.
Fatah, once named by the U.S. as a Mideast "peace partner," is the party led by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. Diliani spoke hours after Fatah and PA officials were accused of inciting a riot on the Temple Mount, claiming Jews were threatening the site.
"Don't use the term Temple Mount," Diliani lectured WND. "It doesn't exist. I don't know where it is. I cannot see any Temple. Can you? No one can find any trace of it. The area you refer to is only a Muslim holy site."
The PA, though, has found evidence of Judaism's historic connection to the Mount – the holiest site in Judaism. The Waqf, the Islamic custodians of the Mount, conducted an unsupervised excavation on the site in 1997. At that time, the Waqf, working under the guidance of the PA, ultimately were caught by Israeli authorities disposing truckloads of Mount dirt that contained Jewish Temple artifacts. To this day, Israeli archeologists are still sifting through the large amount of dirt, in which scores of Jewish Temple relics were found.
Diliani did not deny Fatah and the PA were involved in yesterday's Temple Mount riots.
"Palestinian political factions, including Fatah, are firm on defending the political, national and religious rights of the Palestinian people," Diliani said, "and it's evident now we will continue defending the Al Aqsa Mosque as well as our rights in Jerusalem as a whole
