Islamic group leader discusses Temple Mount with Jordan

On the sidelines of Jordan King Abdullah’s visit to Saudi Arabia, the head of the world’s largest Islamic body meets with Jordan’s Islamic Affairs minister to discuss Muslim support for Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Iyad Madani, the secretary-general of the 57-nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation, paid a rare visit in January to the hilltop compound housing the Al-Aqsa mosque, where tensions have flared surrounding the holy site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount.
