This article comes from Times of Israel and it contains a lot of interesting information relating to current conditions on the Temple Mount. Apparently the Temple Mount is yet another powder-keg waiting to ignite:
Early on Friday evenings, they meet at the Temple Mount — a group of worshipers who differ from the others in appearance, and especially ideology. The group consists of 50-70 men who sit or stand together and listen to lectures on the Koran in the square outside Al-Aqsa Mosque.
These are not the Hamas supporters seen often at the compound, known to Muslims as Haram a-Sharif, nor are they members of the Kharkat al-Tahrir movement (despite their similar attire and ideology). They are, rather, members of the Salafi movement who believe in imitating the ways of the Prophet Muhammad and his immediate followers, and they are becoming an almost permanent presence on the Temple Mount.
While these are not terrorists like members of the Al-Salafiya Al-Jihadiya organization, who operate today in many Middle Eastern countries and recently in the West Bank as well, their presence at Al-Aqsa is not a comforting sight, particularly given the increasing hostilities between Jews and Muslims at this acutely sensitive and contested spot.
