MK Uri Ariel (NU/NRP) appealed to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter in an urgent letter requesting that Jews continue to be allowed to visit the Temple Mount. "We must not give in to Arab threats of violence, and we must demonstrate steadfastness," Ariel said. Islamic groups have urged Muslims to react violently to the archaeological excavation taking place near the Temple Mount, and as a result, police have restricted access to the site to Muslim men over 45 with Israeli IDs.
