JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police early Tuesday detained six Palestinian youths in Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa compound, witnesses told Ma'an.

Police were escorting a Jewish group through the compound at the time, locals said.

The detainees were identified as Haytham Abu Ramouz, Bilal Salim, Yaqub al-Tawil, Ayman Izat, Riyad Awadallah, and Ahmad Ramlawi.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld tweeted: "six Arabs arrested on Temple Mount for attempting to disturb visits taking place this morning."

The compound, which sits just above the Western Wall plaza, houses both the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque and is the third holiest site in Islam.

Al-Aqsa is located in East Jerusalem, a part of the internationally recognized Palestinian territories that have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

What's the Sesame Street song? "One of these things is not like the others. One of these things just doesn't belong." Look at the photo. It's so vivid. Muslim women sitting in the sun at their 1,400-year-old holy place while armed soldiers scan the site nervously for "security threats". The irony is the soldiers (and the visitors they're protecting) are only ON the Haram (and in Israel in general) because they've been sold their deep connection to it. But look at the photo. Some connection.

(contd.) Surely, it's the vividest image imaginable of who is the alien entity, the foreign invader and who truly belongs.
