Ultra-Orthodox Jews are seen at the Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem on Dec 7, 2009. The Dome of the Rock on the compound known to Muslims as al-Haram al-Sharif, and to Jews as Temple Mount, is seen in the background. The Israeli government has warned EU members publicly and privately that EU foreign ministers meeting this week must reject a Swedish proposal to harden support for the division of Jerusalem, calling it a "dangerous" threat to peace efforts.
