Muslims, Not Palestinians

This report I found at the Haaretz English site:

Police battle Arabs in Temple Mount clashes

By Jonathan Lis and Arnon Regular, Haaretz Correspondents

Israeli police rushed into the Temple Mount compound and clashed with hundreds of stone-throwing Palestinians outside the Al Aqsa mosque on Monday as Jews visited the site to mark Jerusaelem Day, the anniversary of the capture of the Old City and East Jerusalem during the 1967 war.

and a similar one off of Yedioth from Reuters:

Palestinians riot in Jerusalem

Police faced off against stone-throwing Palestinians outside Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque on Monday.

A police spokesman said forces moved onto the Temple Mount after several hundred Palestinians threw stones at Jewish visitors near the shrine. He said two Jewish visitors were hurt.

I think these rioters should more properly be described as "Muslims" as I doubt there were any Christians there and for sure, the only Jews were the ones getting stoned.
