Over the holiday of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, Palestinian rioters repeatedly attacked Israeli security forces on the Temple Mount.
The Palestinians were intent on interrupting the visits by tourists to the Temple Mount, threatening violence.
The amount of damage wrought is shocking, considering the fact that the Al Aqsa Mosque is supposed to be a place of holiness for Muslims. The Palestinians had planned on throwing rocks at the Jews praying at the Kotel (Western Wall).
You will not believe the extent of violence aimed at keeping Jews away from the holiest site in Judaism. See it for yourself!
