Mr. A. Sharon's visit was not correct on a formal basis, because rel. leaders of the Temple Mount did not agree especially when he appeared with approx. 50 para.-military people, looking like an occupation of the site.The then Prime Min. ex Rav Aluf Ehud Barak was against it, however political threats of Likud made him to say "Yes".The persons responsible for the death of the 13 Israeli Arabs are known, however never faced any charges, that's the other shame of this complex "Sharon event".
