    Ra'ad Salah, is released but banned from Jerusalem for 30 days. A prudent move I suspect. He is no longer able to access the nexus of turmoil, and no longer an imprisoned 'martyr.' The fact that Israel has tried very hard to be most decent about the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Temple Mount seems to not register with Salah. But then is he really interested in decency? Or is he simply an enraged bigot out to make trouble? I know what he seems, and it is the latter. Then we have Silvan Shalom, what an ironic last name, and Uzi Landau, as eager as Salah to instigate, enrage, and profit from disorder. What about Eli Yishai, thrashing the dead horse PA, and not even thinking that the only alternative, the one he is aiding, is Hamas. Where are the keepers, the people sane enough to rule? Why are the mendacious inmates running the asylum?
