Israel isn't restraining all the extremists all the time. For example, the wild eyed "hill youth" of the settler movement are getting too much tacit support. But the "temple mount faithful" are different. They get no support. Israel is quite vigilant not to let them provoke violence on the temple mount.

AMMAN — Tensions erupted anew in Jerusalem on Thursday after Israeli security forces allowed the entry of tens of right-wing activists into Al Aqsa Mosque, the latest in a series of provocations site custodians warn are threatening to ignite a “cycle of violence”, eyewitnesses and awqaf officials said.

I think the Jordan Times is inciting again with outright lies. No Jewish extremists entered the al aqsa mosque itself. At most they entered the broad plaza on the temple mount in front of the mosque. It doesn't seem, however, that even this happened. There were hundreds of Palestinians swarming on the temple mount, throwing rocks at the Israeli police and at the wailing wall plaza below.

All this is in response to a call by a Jewish extremist on the internet two weeks ago to attack the al aqsa mosque. Such an attack, in fact, has not taken place.
