Re: building on the Temple Mount
I think you are being too idealistic about this whole thing. From what I can see, and I'm sure you will find proof to it if you really dig deep into the local politics - these protests are more about how to split the contents of the "brown envelopes" rather than about some profound religious and cultural issues.
There will be some protests, then the local chief gets a small present, a new car and a promise and, suddenly, it's peace and love, peace and love again.
This is ALWAYS like that in such "disputes" and the more remote the area is, the surer you can be about it.
The Greenie haxx0rs, on the other hand - they simply got the wrong end of the stick, as they usually do.
