Israel Denies Report of Agreement to Transfer Temple Mount to Jordanian Custody

I read the rumors of the initial report - then I read this. From Israel Denies Report of Agreement to Transfer Temple Mount to Jordanian Custody:

The Prime Minister's Office denied a report in the London-based Al-Quds al-Arabi that Olmert and Abbas had agreed to transfer the Temple Mount's holy sites to Jordanian custody. Israeli government officials warned there would likely be a torrent of reports over the next few weeks about the content of negotiations with the Palestinians, with much of it either trial balloons or wishful thinking by interested parties leaking information.
