US group decries Israeli 'discrimination' against Jews

February 14, 2012 06:27

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) decried what it termed Israeli discrimination against Jews on Monday after Israel prevented Jews from praying at the Temple Mount.

"The ZOA believes that unfettered access and freedom to pray at a holy site is a basic, universally recognized right, which certainly should be accorded to Jews in the Jewish State of Israel," the organizations stated in a press release.

On Sunday, Police prevented former Likud leadership contender Moshe Feiglin from entering the Temple Mount, after accusing him and right-wing activists of attempting to disrupt order.
