Jewish woman arrested for praying on the Temple Mount

A Jewish woman was arrested on Monday for praying on the Temple Mount.
A Jewish woman who went up onto the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City, Monday morning, was arrested, following claims by police and Muslim Waqf authority that they noticed she was praying, according to the Honenu legal aid organization.

The woman was detained for questioning by the David District police, after she received counsel from Honenu attorney Adi Kedar.
Those who have been reading for a while know that I do not go up the Temple Mount because my rabbi holds it is not permissible without becoming ritually pure in a way that is impossible today. Still, this is ridiculous. Did someone hear what she said? Why is it a crime for a Jew to mention God's name on the Temple Mount? And why is the State of Israel complicit in enforcing this rule?
