So clearly the Palestinians want to blow up the mosque there.

Cause no Muslim would ever blow up a Mosque?

So what are they doing in there that they would be worried about?

FTFA: But the plan quickly ran into trouble, with the Palestinians objecting to Israeli demands to place cameras inside the mosque. The Palestinians also said that Israel would use the cameras to spy on them.

Yeah, this seems like a step that would need the prerequisite of good faith...a good faith that doesn't currently exist. Given some of the terrorist actions that have taken place there, you'd need a lot of good faith that the cameras weren't going to be used to facilitate the destruction of the Umayyad sites.

I'm not saying that they're digging tunnels, but they have gotten very good at diverting building supplies.

Many people don't like the idea of a government, theirs or any others, spying on them in a house of worship. How do you think a proposal to do this would go over in the U.S?

It's interesting in this day and age with the proliferation of video evidence of everything the question becomes more who is in control of what is recorded and deleted to create a narrative instead of just documenting an event. It's the same deal with the cops vs. civilian video ordeal.

It's well known that the mosque authorities dig below the compound and destroy any artifacts they find.  It's also routine to rain rocks down on the folks praying at Western Wall after Friday prayers. Those rocks are stored somewhere for "spontaneous" use.

Dude I am pretty sure if Israel wanted to level those places they know exactly where they are without cameras, they could run a bunch of bulldozers in tomorrow and level the place without lifting a finger.

I hope I just missed your <sarcasm> tag or that somehow if I read through all your tags (I looked at a couple but didn't see your point) that I would "get" it, but sorry it is better to say something and then provide a link to support it then to put up a link and make us try and figure out what you are saying.

Better idea: A elite squad of UN troops composed lesbians selected by Ellen DeGeneres to be on site, monitoring the situation 24/7, with orders to shoot if necessary any misbehaving individual, without respect to nationality or religious affiliation.  That ought to make both sides STFU.  Either that, or reduce the mount to rubble, give both sides one half of the debris, make them cart it away and turn the crater into a nice park..

If I were appointed dictator-for-life:

Free beer Fridays would be a thing...
All bathrooms would be unisex...
Prisons and heavy polluting industry would be placed on the moon...
And Jerusalem would be evacuated and converted into a pile of radioactive ash with a sign placed in the middle that said "NOW fight over it."

So it's probably a good thing I have neither the charisma nor the connections to make that happen.

If I were Dictator for life...

- Labor Standards would dictate a 3 day weekend with Fridays off and work hours extended by 1 HR.

- Bathrooms would only be Men and Women, unless the establishment wanted to add additional.

- Prisons would produce things or provide services to their communities, hopefully giving inmates more marketable skills. A portion of their pay would be deducted to cover their incarceration costs, and go back to the local communities. Inmates can continue working at these facilities after release with their pay entirely for them.

- Heavy polluters would be heavily penalized or destroyed.

- The area surrounding Israel would be evacuated and turned into a preserve and barrier. No one would occupy this space. Anyone attempting to would be put into a wood chipper and used as fertilizer.

Jordan has been trying to be a peacemaker in the region since old King Hussein was young. As a result, nobody on either side trusts them. That's why their military is second to none.

Also I mean you just said you wanted to nuke Jerusalem, the holy place of three major world religions.  Might come up on the campaign trail.

OK, archnem, you win. Blow it up. JUST BLOW IT UP! Give it back to God! All your life has been spent in pursuit of archaeological relics. Inside the Temple Mount are treasures beyond your wildest aspirations. You want to see it open as well as I. Archnem, we are simply passing through history.

At this point even their fellow Arabs have had it with the Palestinians' crap. They don't want peace? I guess defeat will have to do then. Maybe they should move 'em to Syria since they're so happy with living in a warzone.
