    In that case Yakov Sullivan, do you claim that Rabbi Akiva is not part of our tradition? Was his legacy not carried through by Rabbi Y.Ben Zakkai? A laughable assertion. Of course it was. Was Rabbi Akiva, Rashbi, Bar Kochva, The Maccabees, and so many others - were they breaking with Jewish tradition by being "nationalist" ? No, of course not. Because that IS part of our tradition and part of our religion. To be nationalist one does not need to be a sicarii. And I see nothing "Sicarii-like" about Moshe #1's opinion that he wrote, nor the prominent religious zionist rabbis who say it IS permitted to ascend Temple Mount with proper preparations.
