Tensions increase at Al Aksa Mosque, due to increasing number of Israeli Jews trying to stake a claim Jodi Rudoren - New York Times - Palestinian leaders say that the landmark Al Aksa Mosque and Dome of the Rock in the heart of Jerusalem`s Old City face worst tension in memory, due to increased activitiy of Jews trying to ascent the Mount and stake a claim to it. For decades the Israelis drawn to the site were mainly a fringe of hard-core zealots, but now more mainstream Jews are lining up to enter, as a widening group of Israeli politicians and rabbis are folloing the lead of the radical right-wing. A spate of stone-throwing clashes erupted this month: on Wednesday, three Muslims were arrested and an Israeli police officer wounded in the face. And on Friday thousands of Arab citizens of Israel rallied in the north, warning that Al Aksa is in danger. ak28/9/2013
