Israel parliament pushes for school trips to al-Aqsa to learn about Jewish heritage

Israel's parliament, the Knesset, has issued a recommendation to the education ministry this week to include teachings about the Jewish history of al-Aqsa Mosque compound, and to include field trips to the site in occupied East Jerusalem's Old City in school curricula.

The Old City of Jerusalem and the al-Aqsa compound - known in Judaism as the Temple Mount - remain the most sensitive components of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Al-Aqsa is one of Islam's most revered sites and is also the holiest site in Judaism, where Jews believe the first and second Jewish temples once stood.

The Knesset's education committee stated that "the subject matter is not being taught correctly [in Jewish-Israeli schools] and it should be included in the matriculation curriculum," according to Tel Aviv-based newspaper Yisrael Hayom.
