Nothing to do with the holy Al-Aqsa mosque, which sits safe, except from the mufti's hysteria. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    These excavations are very narrow, limited in scope, allowing one person at a time to pass. They are very far away from the Temple Mount upper surface where El-Omar and Al-Aqsa mosque are situated. They allow any person, archelogist, explorer, from whatever part of the world, to explore the marvelous archeology beneath the Temple Mount. It's not political, it's not incendiary, it's not preposterous and it's not a risk to any structure. The fact it is finished now, and is announced, gives way to some mufti's fireworks, along with Fatah Revolutionary Council member Dimitri Diliani's words, which must be incendiary in order not to appear too peaceful vis a vis Al-Jazeera's leaks. There will be now a time of hysteria and ferocious declarations for every dove droppings over Jerusalem. Doves will be considered Mossad devices too, of course. All thanks to Al-Jazeera and "the Arab street".

Too many Labour politicians cravenly adopted the anti-Semitic tropes and anti-Israel demonization they think will get them British Muslim votes, rather than standing up to the prejudice that exists in the community.
