Judaism's holiest site, yet again

TEMPLE MOUNT WATCH: The Times Misplaces Judaism’s Holiest Site (Simon Plosker, HonestReporting). Once more, the Temple Mount, not the Western Wall, is Judaism's holy site. As of this writing, the error has not been corrected in the caption on The Times's website. Journalists have been getting this wrong a lot lately. Other recent examples of the same error are here and here.

UPDATE (28 January): The caption has now been corrected. Good.
