It seems to me that both sides,yes BOTH sides have this ongoing friction, clashes, and injured. No one for a moment believes in the Arab RUMOURS, yet the Arab youths continue to riot. To close the MOUNT is not in anyones interest. What should be done then? Remove the Police this is a national defence issue and lay down the law. Israels sovereign right is to be on the Mount and control ONLY peaceful worship. Supress the riots once and for all - they dont have to let off steam as a safety valve against the Police. If we fought off 3 sovereign arab countries in wartime surely we can stop a few hundred uneducated hot heads. HAL.
