Who Gets to Benefit?

An Arab woman, resident of Anata in the territories, a doctoral candidate at the Hebrew University, appealed to Israel's Supreme Court for permission to enter Israel against a security ban she suffered from.

Today, as Haaretz reports, the Court suggested that an exception could be made and Justice Elyakim Rubinstein urged:

"At some point, we would like to achieve a measure of normalcy in ties with our neighbors, and if there are no security issues, then perhaps we can come up with some kind of rubric"

That's nice.

Will this apply to Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount? Or, at the least, to halt Muslims from destroying Jewish artifacts and archeological remains?

That would be a step towards normalcy.

Or to more easily visit Jewish ancestral sites in Yudah & Shomron without the fear of being shot at, blown up and/or kidnapped and pulled apart?
