Israeli police clashed with stone-throwing Palestinians Tuesday in the Al-Aqsa mosque compound of Jerusalem's Old City, ahead of a parliamentary debate on Jewish access to the site, holy to both faiths.Tuesday evening, the Knesset (parliament) held the first part of a debate called by right wingers demanding that Israel end its practise of forbidding Jewish prayer at the compound.The compound is a flashpoint because of its significance to both Muslims and Jews.It was previously the site of the first and second Jewish temples and is known to Jews as Temple Mount.In a motion for the Knesset agenda, which was not put to a vote, MP Moshe Feiglin, a hardline member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party, said Israel's fear of igniting Muslim rage amounted to discrimination against Jews.
