Gaza Women Demand to Pray in Al-Aqsa Mosque

Wednesday, July 4th, 2012

Six women from Gaza appealed their case to the Israeli Supreme Court on Wednesday to be allowed to pray at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque, after their original petition was denied by the Beersheba District Court last year.  The women claim discrimination based on their Muslim faith, as Christian women in Gaza are allowed to visit Israel’s holy areas.  The women say they just want to pray, but security has been elevated in the area since Hamas’s capture of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in 2006 and its brutal takeover of the strip in 2007.  The women remain optimistic about the decision.
