Dozens of makeshift checkpoints were set up in and around the Old City and police patrols were bolstered in the alleyways and on paths taken by Jewish and Muslim worshipers to the Temple Mount and Western Wall. Netanyahu ordered Jewish and Muslim lawmakers off the site a year and a half ago, after the outbreak in October of a wave of Palestinian violence and terror attacks centered around claims that Israel was attempting to take greater control of the Temple Mount compound. Metal detectors, a key point of contention that have drawn violent protests in the past week, were installed following a terror attack last Friday at the Temple Mount in which three Arab Israeli gunmen shot and killed two Israeli police officers. Israel has repeatedly denied any such intention. The Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism and the third holiest site in Islam. Glick is an activist for the right to Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount, and was reacting to reports that police were considering keeping the restrictions intact. The Knesset members met early Friday morning with leaders of the Islamic Waqf, the Jordanian body that administers the Temple Mount, before marching with protesters through East Jerusalem towards the Old City.
