Jordan Blasts Israel for Letting Jews Daven at Har Habayis


The government of King Abdullah Hussein of Jordan has filed an official complaint with Israel’s Foreign Ministry for allowing  Jews to daven outside the entrance to the Har Habayis.

According to a report by Israel’s Channel 10 news, Jordan went through official channels to express its grievance that “Israel is violating the status quo in the area and is carrying out extreme provocations that harm relations between our two countries.”

The charge is that when Jews speak the words of any Jewish prayers on the Har Habayis — regardless of whether they are Israeli, in groups or even saying the words coherently so that those around them can hear — the act is contrary to a longstanding agreement between Israel and Jordan that allows Jews in the area but not to utter prayers of any kind.
