Why should the USA stop backing Israel? Because it is under assault from fascists, anti-semitic, delusionary, violent religious bigots????? What is going on in the Temple Mount is outrageous and pure provocation by the Pals, nothing short of that. The fact is that Israel should not have stoped short of going into the Mosque, just as Israeli police chasing ciminals must be willing to follow them into synagogues or churches. There cannot be sanctuaries for ciminals. Of course, I don't think they should go into the Mosque as the first option. They should make every effort to get the Muslim leadership to require those responsible to leave the mosque but if that doesn't work, they must do what is necessary to preserve the rule of law.
