... out in the sun. One thing I noticed was several Jews attempting to enter but being forcibly turned back by security. Apparently the head Rabbi's have banned Jews from praying on Temple Mount because it violates aspects of Judaism, while the Islamic faith doesn't want any Jews praying around their mosque.
