CWN Editor's Note: About 100 people were injured during violent protests in Jerusalem on April 22, and tensions rose during Islamic prayer sessions on Friday, after a series of confrontations between Muslim and Jewish activists. The conflicts arose after police in Jerusalem broke up the meetings that normally occur among the city’s Muslims during the month of Ramadan in the evenings, when the daytime fast is broken.
