11:08 am
kimberly mosque behind the mosque. you have the western wall, which is the only place that jews are allowed to pray on the site, the change that you've seen here and why it is so provocative to palestinians is you know, we are focusing now on these are non muslim access to visit this has been going on for a very long time, 3 hours in the morning, one hour in the afternoon. during the week, what changes the nature of these visits more and more of these religious ultra nationalists trying to pray on the site calling for the right to pray on the site. this is seen as a change in the status quo. palestinians will tell you that even members of this government and previous governments support the right to pray and that more of a blind eye has been turned to when these things happen. so this is the situation if you will, but certainly just coming back to, to day after ramadan, the 1st time that non muslims are allowed to enter. we've seen more of these groups, but things really relatively more quiet than we've seen in recent weeks is, is

11:10 am
these visits are not you what is happening now. it seems to be that the spotlight has been put on them, even the arab league in the last couple of weeks saying that israel has to stop the that jews trying to pray on the site. having said that, the israeli government, even your la p, the foreign minister coming out last week, saying that israel has no intention of changing the status quo. this has been the official position of every government, but certainly when you speak to palestinians who've been witnessing the changes on the ground, they will tell you that this is something that is already happening. i think diplomatically, just briefly, there are efforts now to look at this to try and address it because they know just how exclusive this can be. are we understand there may be a meeting of jordanians, the jordanians are the custodians of the site and also between israeli officials at some point now after e to discuss the status quo. okay, we'll, we'll kill, keep close eye on the situation. 70 decker, a volume from occupied east jerusalem, thanks very much. now the cost of paying off mortgages, credit cards, and all of
