Turkey's consul general in Jerusalem Ercan Ozer stands in front of the Dome of the Rock Mosque in the Old City of Jerusalem March 22, 2007. A team of Turkish experts inspected an Israeli excavation in Jerusalem on Wednesday that Muslims fear could damage one of Islam's holiest sites. Israel's archaeological dig is taking place 50 metres (165 feet) from the religious compound known to Muslims as al-Haram al-Sharif and to Jews as Temple Mount. The work has sparked protests and concern in Muslim nations, including in Turkey. REUTERS/Ammar Awad (JERUSALEM)
