A mob of some 50 Palestinian Muslims stoned a group of Christian tourists atop Jerusalem's Temple Mount on Sunday morning. Three of the Israeli police officers who acted to protect the Christian group were wounded by the stone-throwers.
Police arrested 11 Palestinians, several of them minors, for their role in the attack.
The attack is believed to have been instigated by the former Muslim mufti of Jerusalem, Ekrama Sabri, who told Palestinian media over the weekend that Jewish groups were planning to break into the mosques that occupy the holy compound and desecrate them....
One good thing that will come out of this is thatthe Israeli authorities will take care that this doesn't happen again in the near future. Jerusalem even with its Muhammadans as less crime and acts of violence than American cities of even smaller size.
So, this could be a very good time for American tourists to visit Israel and Jerusalem (and the Temple Mount) because it should take some time before any further idiotic Islamic behavior happens again.
