When she visited the Temple Mount, Herut Canada director Lauren Isaacs, 23, displayed her organization’s flag for a picture of her with the famous site in the background, World Israel News reported.

The Hamas-affiliated al-Quds channel claimed that the flag is “a mark of disgrace on the forehead of 1.6 billion Muslims.” 
Despite the fact that usually, Jewish visitors are closely watched when they enter the site to ensure that they don’t attempt to pray there, it seems Isaacs was allowed to be more or less on her own during her visit. 
"This is our holy site. We are unapologetic Zionists," she wrote on Facebook. 
In early June, riots broke out on the Temple Mount when Jewish people were allowed to enter the site on Jerusalem Day, marking the Israeli military success in the 1967 Six Day War when the Jordanian army was forced to leave the city.
