Now, Where Did the Pope Visit on the Temple Mount?

If you go here, if you listen carefully to the Hebrew commentary of the video (if you comprehend Hebrew), you'll be able to hear that the Temple Mount has "two parts, the Jewish and the Muslim section". Well, that's where the Pope visited according to Ynet.

I am not quite sure that definition's bad.  Sometimes, in a situation like this, fifty per cent is more than you'd expect.

And if you can actually read the accompanying Hebrew text, it reads there that the Pope, on the Temple Mount, visited

במתחם כיפת הסלע

which translates as : "in the Dome of the Rock compound."

That's even better.  No Haram El-Sharif.

Funny how ignorant journalists can make the correct mistakes.

P.S.  No video since Israel and the Palestinian Authority broadcasting companies couldn't reach an agreement on rights to distribute.  And they still expect us to make peace?
