Many Palestinians believe Israel is preparing to allow Jews to pray in the compound of the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, the third holiest site for Muslims after Mecca and Medina. The Israeli government has denied that emphatically. But Palestinians listen to calls from hard right-wing Jewish nationalists and believe it might happen.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has called for Palestinians to defend al-Aqsa. For Palestinians that sounds reasonable. The Israeli government has condemned it as incitement to terrorism. Both Palestinians and Israelis are now talking about a third Palestinian uprising - or intifada. It's too early to say one has started. But in the absence of political action to stop the violence escalating, another intifada is a distinct possibility.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has issued a statement condemning the Jerusalem attack and urging leaders to address the situation there. He added that "clashes between Palestinian youths and Israeli security forces continue on a near daily basis in many parts of East Jerusalem and the West Bank." Mr Ban said he condemns "all acts of violence against civilians".
Talie in Har Nof neighbourhood emails: It is very upsetting and scary. I had a number of phone calls in a few minutes from people asking if I was okay and telling me what had happened. Then I heard ambulances and helicopters. I worked with Rabbi Goldberg's daughter, and I knew his wife so I went to the funeral this afternoon. The community is devastated. The atmosphere is very tense. I want to live in peace but who can we trust?
