A Palestinian man sits next to Israeli riot policemen during clashes near the Al-Aqsa mosques compound in Jerusalem's old city on October 25, 2009. Jordan demanded Israeli police stop entering Al-Aqsa, Islam's third holiest shrine, warning that "dangerous provocations" by the Jewish state threaten peace efforts in the Middle East. Police twice entered Al-Aqsa compound on Sunday after Palestinian demonstrators threw stones at visitors to the holy site, known to Muslims as Al-Haram Al-Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary) and to Jews as the Temple Mount .
