    Prevent Jews from visiting the temple mount to end the violence? Is it the Jews who are throwing rocks at the police and breaking the law? The Jewish State has controlled the temple mount since 1967 and has, since then, tolerated violence organized by the Moslem community. This tolerance has only served to reward violent behavior. Here's a secret....if you want to end the violence, ban the violent. Moslems should be banned from the temple mount until they respect the ruling authority. Jews' access to the temple mount should be enhanced as a reward for their continued non-violence in spite of 40+ years of restricted access in order to placate the violent Moslems. The equation is simple--reward the peaceful and punish the violent. Otherwise, violence will continue to be encouraged and peacefulness will be discouraged. Rewarding the violent is the formula that has served to promote violence and decrease peacefulness in Israel and Palestine since the 1930s.
