Between January to April, the number of Jews going up to the Temple Mount has increased by 27%, according to a report in Bamachane. 2,635 Jews went up in those 4 months, as well as 650 soldiers. Non-Jewish visitors, excluding Muslims, dropped 6% for the past year to 98,000.

Arab violence and rioting on the Temple Mount is also up.

Police actions on the Temple Mount to quell Muslim violence is up 300% from last year for the same period.

Due to Arab rioting and violence, the Israeli police had to go up to the Temple Mount 6 times in the past 4 months, and had to limit the number of Muslim visitors by age 9 times, compared to just 4 times in the same period last year.

Meanwhile, MK Miri Regev (Likud) is working to pass a law that will allow Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount.

Currently the police prohibit Jewish prayer as they are afraid it will incite further Moslem riots on the Temple Mount.

But if Muslim violence on the Temple Mount is up anyway, by those trying to change its status quo, there is no reason to blame it on praying Jews.
