JD: David, the Jerusalem Post is reporting that Jewish prayers have returned to the Temple Mount even though it’s in contradiction to Muslim law. Give us an update on that.

DD: Well Jimmy there’s been two reasons why Jews have not been able to freely pray up on the Temple Mount all of these years since 1967 when they recaptured the Old City of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount of course the heart of that. That has been the Palestinian walk, the Muslim authorities that run the show up on top. But it’s also more importantly been the Israeli police that have an outpost as you know on the northeast corner of the Temple Mount a small building that I’ve been in several times. They would enforce that status quo agreement as it were between Jordan and Israel that Jews would not openly pray up on the Temple Mount.
