Israeli MP visits Al-Aqsa site, defying Netanyahu plea

Far-right member of the Israeli parliament, Moshe Feiglin (centre), speaks on the phone in the old city of Jerusalem after visiting al-Aqsa mosque compound on November 2, 2014An Israeli far-right lawmaker visited the flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound in east Jerusalem on Sunday, defying calls for restraint from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The hardline member of Netanyahu’s rightwing Likud bloc is a leading advocate of the right of Jews to pray there. Long-standing practice at the compound, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, allows visits by other faiths but limits prayer to Muslims.
