What makes the photo caption even more nefarious is that it is extremely unlikely an ultra-Orthodox Jew would actually be standing in front of the Dome of the Rock Mosque. The mosque stands on Har ha-Bayit, the Temple Mount that is considered holy to Jews. Ultra-Orthodox Jews generally do not set foot on the Temple Mount, because it is unclear where on the hill the Holy of Holies — where it would be forbidden for any but the Cohen Gadol (high priest) to tread — was located during the Temple period.

There’s a courtyard outside of the actual sanctuary where you can go. You just can’t go inside. Well, you can, but most Jews do not. This man is probably standing in or near the courtyard.

And there’s that “ultra” word again I’m so fond of :(
