In this episode of Hebrew Voices, Triumph Over Terror, Nehemia Gordon speaks with his old friend and “Pearls Partner", Keith Johnson — an African American Methodist pastor who came to Israel to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Yehuda Glick’s survival of an assassination attempt by a Muslim extremist. Glick is an Orthodox Rabbi and human rights activist who works to make the Temple Mount accessible to people of all faiths. The attempted assassination aroused Jews from all walks of life to proclaim triumph over terror through freedom of worship on the Temple Mount.
I look forward to reading your comments!

Article 9 - Places of Historical and Religious Significance and Interfaith Relations
1. Each Party will provide freedom of access to places of religious and historical significance. 2. In this regard, in accordance with the Washington Declaration, Israel respects the present special role of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in Muslim Holy shrines in Jerusalem. When negotiations on the permanent status will take place, Israel will give high priority to the Jordanian historic role in these shrines. 3. The Parties will act together to promote interfaith relations among the three monotheistic religions, with the aim of working towards religious understanding, moral commitment, freedom of religious worship, and tolerance and peace.
