According to an article that appeared in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz The Temple Mount custodian is willing to open the site to Israelis.
According to Haaretz The head of the Muslim religious trust that administers the Temple Mount in Jerusalem has called on Israel to enter negotiations aimed at restoring the status quo on the site to its pre-2000 situation.
