In talks with colleagues on Wednesday regarding the construction work being carried out at the Mughrabi, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said, "The Temple Mount is the site most holy to the Jewish people. The State of Israel will never do anything to harm the freedom of worship of members of all religions - in Jerusalem or anywhere in Israel. "There are irresponsible elements, who know full well that no harm is being caused here to any holy site, who are exploiting Israeli democracy to fan religious feelings for political gain. This is true of both political groups within Israel and extremist elements outside Israel," she said.
