Scary Jew Shadow Threatens Mosque

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.
