Israeli minister mobbed by Palestinians on Temple Mount
Scores of Palestinians shouting Allahu Akbar mobbed and threatened Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Zeev Elkin when he and a party paid a visit to Temple Mt. Wednesday morning. Elkin said he had not come to pray but to commemorate a departed friend. All the same, he was forced to leave the shrine for lack of police protection. The minister accuses the police of falling down on their duty, which is to protect visitors of all faiths at the holy sites.
