The day after the troubles filled the newspapers, stones flew in the air, and there was a general pandemonuium, nothing happened. You, like many others assume that when some Islamic leader calls upon the Believers to "act" means that they speak for the people they are supposed to represent. Midway through this debacle, there was call for a two hour strike, and . . . it wasn't. Some Arabs in the Old City have issues with their "leadership". Hamas in Gaza terrorizes the Fatah, internet cafes, and any other source that might dispute their authority. Seems to me that ain't no partner I want to share a turf. Other than that, considering the troubles the US is experiencing, the unemployment, the national debt, the negative trade balance, the bank failures, . . . We're lookin' at the Old Sick Man of North America.
