Temple Mount: Muslims refuse entry to Jewish policeman, barricade themselves at mosque

Violent riots broke out Monday on Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City after anti-Semite Muslim worshipers at the mosque refused to allow an Israeli policeman to enter for a routine security check because he was wearing a Jewish kippah.

Firas Dibs, a spokesman for the Muslim authority that oversees the Jewish holiest site, says the riots erupted when dozens of Muslims closed the doors to the mosque and barricaded themselves inside. The director of the mosque was lightly wounded.
