John Kerry, US secretary of state, has arrived in Israel to try to revive faltering Middle East peace talks. But just before his arrival, debate heated up in an Israeli parliamentary committee over one of the conflict's most controversial issues: access to Jerusalem's Haram al-Sharif, or the Noble Sanctuary.
Israeli parliament members are pushing for free Jewish access to what they call the Temple Mount. But Palestinians say allowing Jewish prayer at the holy site would be a dangerous provocation.
