Things were really tense in Jerusalem yesterday, since it was the day that the Israeli far-right group Revava designated for their "Storming the AlAqsa Mosque" operation. They have been talking about it for weeks and talking about how thousends of their members are going to show up. The Islamic leaders of course called on the muslims to protect the shrine, and the Israeli police deployed 3000 police officers to protect the Mosque from the attackers. Tensions were running high, and people saying that this attack will start the downward spiral of doom and spark "a final war between the arabs and Israelis". Scary stuff.. no? Well.... It didn't really happen! Despite threatning to do this mass attack for two weeks, only a few right wing israelis ended up showing up. The Israeli police stopped those few demonstraters without a problem. Ironically, the one Israeli policeman that got injured was injured by a rock thrown at him by the palestinians there, who were throwing rocks at the Israeli police that was trying to protect the Mosque. Isn't that something?

There is irony in that for sure.

Probably couldn't take the fact they couldn't organize their own protection.

Okay..promise to reduce posting after this. Hahhahaha.

I was right. Twosert exploded and told everyone I called her a "terrorist".

Mohammed had a nice considerate reply and I replied back to him in the same vein.

I am thinking this could be interesting if it continues.
