firstly at no time did i say i was religious or as you so sublimely put it a 'devotee'. what i ahve to take exception to is your version of judaism. if i wish to take part in it that is my right, but i can not mold it to suit my values, only an arrogant and self-centred person could possibly do that. finally, the vst majority of those who try to get on to the temple mount wish to do so just to pray. not to approach the mosques and certainly not to blow it up. the cations of less than 20 people do not speak for all the 'bearded' masses how ever much you wish it would so it fit into your sordid arguement. also please try and keep this discussion without making overly derrogatory marks about peoples look, if people want to grow a beard or wear a snood, so what?? you seem to want 1984 type world where we would all be images of what you desire!
