    The destruction of the mosque was indeed a despicable act. But I would have thought it was comparable to something like, I don't know, say the destruction of Kever Yosef. In October 2000, a Palestinian mob ransacked the structure, smashing the dome with pickaxes and setting the compound on fire. They then desecrated the tomb, using it as a local garbage dump and sometimes burning tires inside.
