    Ben, I was there as well. Back in 1974, a few years before it received its face lift. A pretty drab old sister at the time. The renevations have given it some class. As for those who dream of destroying the mosque and building the temple, well that is there dream. Those who attempt to destroy it, very very few, are usually stopped by Israeli secutity forces, early in their planning. this latest violence is not due to any facts on the ground, this is but Salah trying to rebuild his power base, which has dwindled as of late. What better than inciting violence, getting the ole blood lusts heated. Send the teenagers to jerusalem, let them throw rocks at Jews, heck French tourists are acceptable as well, all in the name of protecting Al Aqsa. Cool! Ben your adopted nation is not as perfect as you think they are, nor are the violent angry power hungry Salahs, who obviously have you fooled. Meet you at the Temple Mount, bring your catcher's mitt and cup.

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
