More Arab propaganda

Finally. Some tough talk from Israel, and more of the same crap from Arabs. As Dr. Aaron Lerner of IMRA points out, it would appear that no one is bothered by the fact that Palestinians threw rocks from the Temple Mount down onto the area of Jewish worship at the Western Wall. This Palestinian violence forced Israeli security forces to act. Via Jerusalem Post:

Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter told Israel Radio on Saturday that Israel would disprove the Arab propaganda that seeks to convince the world that the al-Aksa Mosque is in danger because of renovations being doneoutside the Mughrabi Gate to the Temple Mount compound. Dichter said police entered the compound on Friday in order to prevent rocks from being thrown into the Western Wall Jewish prayer area below, something he said was "crossing a red
line" and would not be tolerated. Dichter reiterated Israel's diplomatic stance that holds repair work on the ramp leading to the Mughrabi Gate is taking place outside the Temple Mount compound and that anyone that thought differently would have to prove it.
