Jordan controlled Temple Mount and jews were not permitted to go there despite the fact its the holiest site for them in the world not the Kotel. Why don't we also go back to the Jordanian law that forbid jews going to the Kotel to pray but did allow arabs to urinate against it. They really were the good old days weren't they? In 1967 Israel took over and decided to leave the running of the site in the hands of the Waqf as a gesture of goodwill towards the muslims. Since then the Waqf have been digging the place up and destroying arcehology. Arabs have thrown stones at jews praying at the Kotel, there have been riots, the Waqf have tried to stop jewish access. Israel has gone all out to make Jersalem but the arabs have thrown it right back in their face and then blamed it all on Israel. The only reason Jordan is even appealing to the US to stop jewish access to their holiest site is because they know he has become an arab puppet all who jumps when told to.
