This now public made decision concerning the resumption of plan new bridge to the Mugrabi Gate, between the Western Wall and the Temple Mount which of course certain amount of necessary archaeological excavation to secure fundaments for this ancient entrance to the Temple Mount, is known as religious / political case. We observed from that any archaeological activities in the vicinity of the Temple Mountain as long as they were initiated by Israel became a highly explosive political issue. - The necessity to ensure the usage of the Mugrabi gate commands a safe approach which apparently could not longer be guaranteed by the crumbling present approach. - The timing is very ?unlucky and most unsuitable? at the end of Ramadan / Eid El Fetre Religious events. Whether just this repair action influences negatively the proposed Annapolis meeting is largely irrelevant as every Israel moves will be used by the Arab representative for their purposes irrespective of any needs. - Israel?s authority to decide the real needs is not to be affected by this postponement, which most probably will be fully approved by Jerusalem?s building master plan committee.
