Fearing disquiet in the capital, security forces will be deployed in the Old City and main thoroughfares in east Jerusalem on Sunday. Muslim leaders in east Jerusalem and northern Israel have recently been calling once again for Israel's Arab population to "come at defend" the Temple Mount from Jewish presence, according to police. The Jewish Temple Mount Organization is also set to call on Sunday for Jews to ascend to the mount. Earlier in October, similar calls led to days of rioting and clashes between Arab youths and Israel police. However, police have decided not to limit entrance to the Aksa Mosque on Sunday.
