    I know this has been pointed out in other forums on Talkback in the past, but I think it is worth repeating. "During the war of 1948, Arab troops that entered the Old City of Jerusalem and captured the Jewish Quarter destroyed twenty-two of the twenty-seven synagogues there. The Jordanians demolished the remaining five when they took over. In the years that they held the eastern part of the city, 1948-1967, the Jordanians burned and stole hundreds of Toral scrolls, books, and historically valuable Jewish manuscripts. Generally, Jews were not allowed to pray freely at the Western Wall, which can be seen, in one photograph, defaced by a political poster. In the ancient Jewish cemetery on the western slope of the Mount of Olives, overlooking the Temple Mount, some tombstones were broken and others were used as building blocks for latrines and barracks in Jordanian army camps." (Shipler, Arab and Jew, Penguin, Revised ed., 2002, pp. 154-155). The usual crazed Talkback hypocrisy.
