MKs visit Jewish homes on Mount of Olives(excerpts)
Residents: Violence has risen since rumors of Jewish marches on Temple Mount began.
Tension from two-month-old rumors about mass Jewish demonstrations to overtake the Temple Mount has continued to ripple across Jerusalem. This has led to an increase in violence and stone throwing attacks, Arab and Jewish residents of East Jerusalem said on Tuesday.
MKs Ben-Ari and Eldad visited the residents of East Jerusalem and promised to bring this problem up in the Knesset.
When a flyer was circulated two months ago publicizing a mass march by right-wing Jews to overtake the Temple Mount, it immediately touched off large riots in Jerusalem and Jordan.
