(Worthy News) – The Jerusalem District Court on Wednesday ruled against four Jewish teens who prayed on the Temple Mount, reversing a lower court decision, which Palestinians and Jordan claimed had legitimized the violation of the status quo at the flashpoint site.
Last week, the four suspects were arrested by police and slapped with a 15-day ban from the Old City for bowing down and reciting the “Shema Yisrael” prayer at the Temple Mount in violation of the status quo under which Muslims may visit and pray at the site while non-Muslims are barred from partaking in any ritual activity.
The teens appealed the decision, arguing that they had read media reports in which Israel Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai declared that all three religions of freedom of worship in Jerusalem. Their defense was accepted on Sunday by the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court, which nullified their 15-day ban. While the scope of the ruling was particularly narrow, it sparked immediate uproar from the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and Jordan, leading the Prime Minister’s Office to issue a statement that there would be no change to the status quo.
