When the Jordanians destroyed the synagogues of the old city and built a hotel in the middle of the Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives, they didn't have to explain themselves to any Court. When the Palestinians destroyed the synagogues of Gaza and Joseph's Tomb, they didn't have to justify it to any Court. When the Waqf dug up the Temple Mount, in the process destroying a priceless wealth of ancient artifacts, they didn't petition any Court for permission. So, yes, Israel may be an imperfect democracy, but there are checks and balances, and rules, and Courts, to which people may apply for legal redress. So there is no guarantee the COURT will permit this construction. Because Israel is a democracy. BTW, do you know who is the Speaker and head of the Knesset Presidency right now? Majali Wahaba. A Muslim. By virtue of Israeli democracy.
