Rabbi Kaplan, I do not think you are wrong. In fact, you made some points that I had not thought of. It is disrespectful to waltz around the Temple Mount taking pictures like you are at the Grand Canyon or something. I think most people who go mean no harm, but I do see your point. And I thank you for speaking about backing out rather than turning around and walking out; I never thought about it but if such respect is afforded the Queen of England, how much more should it be paid to our G-d?
