ISLAM

The Islam is the second largest practiced religion in Israel. Many Arab-Israeli and Palestinians travel to Jerusalem to attend the prayers in Al-Aqsa mosque, the 3rd holiest place for Islam, during large festivities like the Ramadan. While many try to enter the premises of the Temple Mount, some are refused due to security reason, causing large crowds to pray in some unusual places.
