Ultra-Orthodox Jews stand next to the Western Wall in Jerusalem
Ultra-Orthodox Jews stand next to the Western Wall, Judaism's holiest prayer site, in Jerusalem's Old City March 7, 2011. Israel has given preliminary approval for renovations at a contested holy site in East Jerusalem where rebuilding has triggered violence in the past, a city official said on Sunday. Municipal planners last week approved the project to repair an earthen ramp near the Mughrabi Gate connecting the Wailing Wall remnant of an ancient Jewish temple to a complex revered by Muslims and Jews, both of whom claim the area as their own.
