    Should Israel bow to black-mail? Should it treat lies by saying, uh, huh, this is the truth? Please. This is a walkway which collapsed in the snow. It is being strenghtened so that no visitors will risk their lives, as they so often do in Mecca on the occasion of the Hadj, no matter what they do ensure the security of millions. A simple walkway that has to ensure the safety of visitors in the future. Are we going to give in to superstition? To ignorance? Perhaps Sharon in the light of what happened at Sabra and Shatilla, that he allowed the Phalangistes to run rampant, was not a good omen, nor were his motives to run against Netanyahu, beat him to the punch as it were... Whatever the reasons. Indeed it was a sensitive time, when is not a sensitve time? And here we are back at the same moment, where we must promise them the moon and mortgage our inheritance promised to Abraham from time immemorial, when G-d Himself spoke and told him to walk the length and breadth of this Land.
