An ultra-Orthodox Jewish man stands in front of the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest prayer site, in Jerusalem’s Old City September 14, 2009, as he takes part in a “global day of prayer” called by Orthodox rabbis in response to what they described as mounting threats to Israel. The Jewish state is eyeing Iran’s nuclear programme and is under U.S.-led pressure to enter peace talks with the Palestinians that could entail ceding occupied biblical land. Some of Israel’s ultra-Orthodox Jews have also been protesting against the state’s secular domestic policies. REUTERS/Yannis Behrakis
