    I don't understand much, and am not a religious person. However, why in the world would anyone want to restrict prayer for any group? It sounds like this Sheikh Salah guy is against the freedom of religion, why would he want the Jewss to not pray at their holiest site? This is unfair. They have Mecca... and they also have a holy site at the temple mount. Why can't they share? Are they selfish? Do they know how to share? Do they not know that this site is to the Jews as Mecca is to them or are they ignorant or just selfish and wants what is theirs and what is others? I don't know, they just seem heartless forbidding another religion to pray at their most holy site from thousands of years and only wanting it to themselves.
