Why should one set of Jews be entitled to set the rules by which other Jews have to abide if they wish to pray at the Wall? They shouldn't,short and sweet. Why should Jews be banned from praying on the Temple Mount? Because this is land that has been illegally annexed by Israel, does not under international law belong to Israel and should therefore not be used by Jews until or if that becomes permissible under the terms of a peace agreement. More then anything, Jews want to pray there in order to show the Palestinians just how impotent they are under the occupation and in order to provoke a violent reaction so that once again they can say that the Palestinians cannot be peace partners. If we have to fight amongst ourselves, so be it, but to deliberately humiliate the Palestinians in order to demonstrate our domination is just sick.
