A seething volcano – Haaretz – Israel News

the Temple Mount is behaving like an active, simmering volcano; the timing of its next major eruption is impossible to gauge. The government’s attitude, by which it views these events as just another competitive front between Israel and the Palestinians, is likely to foment a violent outburst which will ignite the entire Middle East.

the Israel Police is caught between a rock and a hard place. It is wedged between a government which views strengthening the Jewish hold on the Temple Mount and its environs as a political and diplomatic objective, and Palestinians who view themselves as the fortifying wall standing in the way of such Israeli aims.
