    "es, Sharon as a Israeli citizen has some right to go to the grounds of the mosque, but here`s the "rub": ---why 1100 soldiers...that`s beyond body gaurd numbers"(Stephen A) .... Let me think about it for a millisecond ... because the Arabs threatened to riot if a Jewish leader would visit a Jewish holy site. Like I said: THAT is religious bigotry and I find it offensive. I bet you would be outraged if a Jewish mob would try to prevent a Muslim leader from visiting A Muslim holy site in Jerusalem ... "it started the second intafada...which is why Arafat couldn`t accept barak`s proposal"(Stephen A) I thought you said in your earlier post that Sharon visited the Temple Mount in 2002. I remind you of that to show that your grasp of real history seems tenuous at best (no offence intended). But in any case. You have it back to front. What really happened was that Arafat could not bring himself to negotiate a peace deal. And since he felt cornered, Bill Clinton was pressuring BOTH sides to conclude a peace deal, Arafat used Sharon's visit to the Temple Mount, to whip up a riot, cause violence and scuttle the negotiations. That was Arafat's response instead of agreeing to the compromise that Bill Clinton was pushing for. Here is an interesting Video for you to learn what really happened: http://www.bollywoodsargam.com/video_todayfeaturedvideo.php?blockbustermovieclip=HcSYUItDdZc----Bill_Clinton%3A_Arafat_Peace_Talks_at_Camp_David_featured_hollywood_blockbuster_video.html
