(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to King Abdullah II and other Jordanian government officials are working to prevent the Israeli Knesset from passing a bill that would permit Jews to pray on the Temple Mount, the Palestinian Ma’an News Agency reported Tuesday.

In a meeting with Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende earlier this week, Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh warned that “Israeli violations” in Jerusalem were undermining the peace process.

“Such flagrant and aggressive attacks will drag the region into a religious conflict that will subvert the peace prospects and fuel extremism, terrorism and violence in the region,” Judeh was quoted as saying by Jordan’s Petra news agency.
