An Israeli far-right lawmaker visited the flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem Sunday, defying calls for restraint from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.MP Moshe Feiglin was met with protests from Muslims crying "Allahu akbar!" when he visited the Old City site, an AFP photographer said. Long-standing practice at the compound allows visits by other faiths but limits prayer to Muslims.Last month, Abbas urged Palestinians to prevent settlers from visiting the compound "by all means," following clashes there.Israel Thursday ordered a rare closure of the compound as Palestinian youths clashed with police after officers shot dead a Palestinian suspected of trying to murder a hard-line Israeli rabbi.In East Jerusalem clashes that erupted late Saturday and early Sunday, police arrested 17 Palestinian protesters, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said.
