Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel visits Temple Mount

Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) visited the Temple Mount on Sunday after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accepted a police recommendation to allow Jewish MKs to visit the holy site once a month.
"The Temple Mount should be open to [Jewish] visitors at all times," Ariel said, "without limitation or discrimination."
He also said that the position of the High Court, which refused to discuss the issue of metal detectors that Jewish visitors must pass through to reach the site, discriminates against Jews since similar measures are not used on Muslims.
