Israel Closes Holy Site as Tensions Mount in Jerusalem

Hosted by

For the first time in years, Israeli authorities blocked access today to one of Jerusalem’s contested holy sites — called the “Temple Mount” by Jews and the “Noble Sanctuary” by Muslims.  A Palestinian spokesman called it a “declaration of war.”  Jodi Rudoren, Jerusalem Bureau Chief for the New York Times, updates the situation.
