" the Synagogue that has been rebuilt was destroyed by the Arabs last time they had responsibility for the Old City of Jerusalem." Yes. As were thousands of non-Jewish homes and villages, before and after Israel was declared a state, obliged to protect, rather than raze, before the Synagogue met it's demise. STILL going on under occupation and illegal annexation, illegal settlement. "By rebuilding it we have enraged them." Oh, there's quite a lot more Israel has done over the last 62 years and is STILL doing.... "And according to you *we* are the ones who are at odds with the conventions of international law?!" STILL at odds. Indeed. "Anyone who shares any sort of vision for peace must recognise that their rage is misplaced.." Why? Isn't Israel STILL occupying? STILL Illegally settling ".. and that all religions have the right to maintain their Holy Places in Jerusalem" Indeed and RoR and an end to occupation and all the of Israel's illegal activities, STILL going on.
