Temple Mount

Eastern Temple Mount Wall May Collapse

The eastern wall of Jerusalem's Temple Mount is in danger of immediate collapse because of damage caused by the February 11 earthquake, a classified government report issued this week concludes.

New cracks and movements in the already fragile 2,000-year-old wall were discerned by archeologists following the February earthquake, the report states.

I'm surprised it has lasted so long considering all the work going on inside, being done by people who claim Jews never occupied the site or ever had anything to do with it and are destroying significant archeological finds.

Wakf (Islamic Trust) director Adnan Husseini on Thursday said that the report over damage to the wall caused by the earthquake was "incorrect." "We do not understand how such a report could be issued since there is no problem due to the earthquake," he said.

OK then. It's the Palestinian people who will be inside when it finally does collapse. And of course, it will be Israel's fault.
