Israeli President Moshe Katsav vowed that the Jewish state would never allow anyone to harm the Al Aksa Mosque on the Temple Mount. “I will put my life on the line in order to protect the holiness” of the mosque, Katsav said. He was reacting to persistent Palestinian claims that Israel plans to destroy the mosque to build a Jewish temple.
