Police kick Ben Shapiro off Temple Mount

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro who founded The Daily Wire, is visiting Israel and made a holy pilgrimage to the Temple Mount. While he and members of his group were praying, police interrupted them, removed one of the members of the group and detained him for questioning.

According to the site, Breaking Israel News, Shapiro’s group decided to sing ” Hebrew songs about building the Third Temple” as a protest for the police actions, which prompted people to shout “Alla hu Akbar!” at them.

Non-Muslims are banned from praying at the site and Jewish people are only allowed to visit at specific times. Muslims can come and go, pray as they like but Christians and Jews are only supposed to visit as tourists even thought the site is designated as a holy site for all three religions.
