The article is short.  I bolded what I thought to be just so stupid. What is even more amazing is that they had to hurry up and take care of this situation because people need to pray to that wall!  They were only closed for an hour...

Wow....




An Israeli Jew has been shot dead near Jerusalem's Western Wall after a guard mistook him for a Palestinian militant, police say.

Gunfire was heard on Friday morning at the wall - one of Judaism's holiest sites where hundreds of worshippers were attending prayers at the time.

Police say the guard shot the man after hearing him shout "Allahu Akbar".

The area, which is patrolled by armed guards, closed to visitors for about an hour but has now reopened.

The incident took place at about 07:40 local time (04:40 GMT) as the man emerged from a public toilet at the wall compound.

A police spokesman said the guard drew his weapon and fired a number of shots at the man after hearing him shout "Allahu Akbar" (God is great, in Arabic).

The man had his hands in his pockets at the time he was approached by the guard, the spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, said.

The Western Wall is part of the retaining wall of the Temple Mount (known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif), dating back to a time when a Jewish temple stood on the Mount.

Jews go to the Western Wall to pray and leave prayers on pieces of paper between its ancient stones.

The site and the area around it has in the past been a flashpoint for violence between Israelis and Palestinians.
