"Metal detectors and other restrictions should be immediately lifted and returned to the status quo". "As the summit term president of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation [OIC], I call for the worldwide community to act to immediate end practices that restrict freedom of worship".
The tensions began after the installation a week ago by Israel of metal detectors at the entrances to the esplanade of the Mosques, in the wake of an attack against the israeli police on the 14th of July.
"We will enable everybody to come and pray on the Temple Mount, but at the same time we will do whatever is necessary to maintain security of this important site", Israeli U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon said ahead of the meeting.
On 14 July, three israeli Arabs kill by bullets two israeli police in the old city of Jerusalem, before being hunted down and slaughtered on the esplanade of the Mosques.
As word spread of the decision, a few hundred Palestinians gathered to celebrate near an entrance to the Haram al-Sharif mosque compound, known to Jews as the Temple Mount.
Incensed at what they perceive as a violation of delicate decades-old access arrangements at Islam's third-holiest site, many Palestinians have refused to go through the metal detectors, holding street prayers and often violent protests.
Clashes also flared in east Jerusalem and other Palestinian villages in the West Bank near Jerusalem on Saturday, police said. The jews can not enter at certain times and do not have the right to pray there.
Now, Egypt and Jordan, the two Arab nations that have signed a peace treaty with Israel, seek to remove the metal detectors and restore calm to the conflict-ridden city.

In 2000, then Israeli opposition leader Ariel Sharon's visit to the compound helped ignite the second Palestinian intifada, or uprising, which lasted more than four years.
This decision aroused the anger of the Palestinians and Jordan, the guardian of the holy places of Jerusalem.
