      New Digging


       

      I was sent this photograph of new Muslim Waqf digging within the Temple Mount compound. Seems the impunity of the Waqf is only matched, and of course, encouraged, by Olmert's policies.

       

      UPDATE

      And it doesn't matter if we kill 10 Arabs as the IAF did this morning (of course, that does help) if we yield on one of the most central aspects of the dispute between Muslims and Jews - is the Temple Mount a Jewish fiction or a Muslim one.
