The resignation of Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon on Friday has opened the way for a hardliner who advocates Jewish prayer at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound to enter parliament.Jews believe the site was home to the first and second Jewish temples before being destroyed by the Babylonians and Romans, and thus revere it as the holiest site in Judaism.Current rules governing the site allow Jews to visit during set hours but not to pray there, for fear of stoking tensions.Glick has been an outspoken advocate of Jewish rights to the holy site and has also guided visits there.
