Israel is exploiting the situation. It knows it is on very shaky ground diplomatically and is under pressure. What will distract from that and what can they use as a ruse? Jerusalem of course, Jerusalem at Sukkot, the great pilgrimage festival. What is their intention? Provke the Muslims whose actions have all been defensive. They did not intiatie this round of tensions. The nationalist and religious grops, ie the Temple Institute have made their plans clear. They have an agenda which starts with incitement. From there it escalates to violence. Their intention is to take over the Temple Mount and throw off the Muslims. Muslims know it and are reacting to that threat. The international community cannot let Isrsel get away with this. The region cannot have a thrid intifada, though Israel is certainly egging it on.
