Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul was verbally accosted by a young Arab man during a visit to the Temple Mount on Sunday, police said. The heckler, who shouted 'don't shake his hand, he is a heretic and not a Muslim,' was detained by police on the scene, and removed from the ancient compound, Jerusalem police spokeswoman Sigal Toledo said. The minister's visit to the Jerusalem holy site continued without further incident.
