“Police assaults Muslims” like man bites dog. The Israeli’s don’t allow Arab men under 50 access to their terror mosque for good reason: they come Â to make trouble, they come to engage in holy terror. It is prudent to prevent trouble on the high holidays of Christians and Jews. The men in this picture below are all under 50 years old.
From the increasingly unhinged TurkBull:
At least 24
Palestinians Arab troublemakers were arrested during clashes at theÂ gates of Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Al-Quds (occupied East Jerusalem).
In a statement, the Israeli police said that two personnel were slightly injured in the Sunday violence as 24 Palestinian youths were rounded up in connection with the clashes.

Temple Mount compound closed after rocks and fireworks thrown at police from barricade at Al-Aqsa Mosque; police arrest 24 suspects.
The Israeli police also noted that the compound is closed to visitors.
Clashes erupted earlier Sunday between Israeli policemen and Palestinian worshippers at theÂ gates of the holy site after Israeli forces assaulted Palestinian worshippers and religious students lining up to enter the holy site, eyewitnesses said.
At least seven Palestinians suffered temporary asphyxiation and bruises in the ensuing clashes as the Israeli police fired teargas in a bid to break up the crowd, they added.
Violence spilled over into other parts of the Old City in Al-Quds between angry Palestinian protesters and Israeli policemen, the eyewitnesses said.
“The Israeli police closed a number of the compound’s gates and denied access to Palestinians under the age of 50, leading to clashes withÂ worshippers,” a Palestinian guard of the compound told Anadolu Agency.
Tension has been high in Al-QudsÂ over threats by extremist Jewish groups, which have called on supporters to force their way into the holy compound during the weeklong Jewish Passover holiday, the last day of which is celebrated Sunday.
In recent months, groups of extremist Jewish settlers, often accompanied by Israeli security forces, have repeatedly forced their way into the Al-AqsaÂ complex. The frequent violations anger Palestinian Muslims and occasionally lead to violent confrontations.
For Muslims, Al-Aqsa represents the world’s third holiest site. Jews refer to the areaÂ as the “Temple Mount,” claiming it was the site of two prominent Jewish temples in ancient times.
Israel occupied Al-QudsÂ during the 1967 Middle East War. It later annexed the holy city in 1980, claiming it as the capital of the self-proclaimed Jewish state.
