High Court rejects bid to block new Temple Mount mosque (via Bible and Interpretation News)
By Yuval Yoaz, Haaretz Correspondent
The High Court of Justice on Tuesday rejected a petition by the Temple Mount Faithful group demanding a ban on the government and Jerusalem municipality from authorizing the construction of another mosque on the Temple Mount.
The petitioners said that in recent weeks there have been public announcements stating that initial steps have been taken in the building of a fourth mosque in the eastern section of the Mount, which today is an open space.
Regular readers will not be surprised to hear that I think any new construction on the Temple Mount would be a very bad idea.
