Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Should Open Mecca

Imagine that after the Israeli government conquered Jerusalem in 1967, non-Jews were not allowed to visit the Temple Mount. Then imagine a Saudi Muslim sneaking up on the mountain, claiming to be a Jewish American, and broadcasting his visit on Saudi TV. He would certainly find worldwide support for opposing Israel’s “apartheid” regime.

This is roughly how it happened in reverse on July 18, when Gil Tamary — a Jewish Israeli television journalist who holds a US passport — broadcast himself on Israeli television as he cruised through Mecca, Islam’s holiest city to non-Muslims forbidden is. On the 10-minute program, Mr. Tamary drove past the Grand Mosque, crossed Mina, a place of annual pilgrimage, and climbed Mount Arafat.
