Some Jews are again being allowed to visit the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The mount, the holiest site in Judaism, has not been officially re-opened to non-Muslims, but small groups of tourists and Jews have visited the holy site in recent days without opposition from Palestinian leaders. The current round of Israeli-Palestinian violence began on Sept. 28, 2000, a day after Ariel Sharon, then the leader of Israel’s opposition and now prime minister, visited the site.
