From the Palestinian nationalist perspective why not continue with business as usual? Since the 1920's anti-Zionists view willful Palestinian provocations, not to mention subsequent Palestinian acts of willful and intentional pogrom, rioting, and anti-Jewish depredation as automatic proof that the Zionists must be doing something wrong to hurt those precious doe-eyed dearies. But from an Israeli perspective it is a wonder that it should subject itself to the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune by permitting access to the Temple Mount and its precincts to free agents and agents of cross cutting Palestinian factions. Surely this is reason to consider shutting down Palestinian PR manipulation by denying them the photo opportunities of the negotiating process--certainly it is a reason for a short-term 100% embargo on Palestinian worship and Palestinian presence on the Temple Mount.
