Police and Palestininas have been clashing at al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, with some Palestinians barricading themselves inside the mosque. This latest spate of violence was triggered by Palestinian concerns about renovations to the courtyard of the temple mount "damaging" the mosque. <center><a href=http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/6346093.stm>Violence at Jerusalem holy site</a></center> My thoughts on the matter are simple. Fucking grow up. This whole middle-eastern witches brew got cooked up after the British acceded to the demands of Jewish terrorists for a return to their "homeland" which the Palestinians had occupied for centuries. Any sensible people would have simply assimilated into whatever culture they grew up in and taken advantage of the opportunities where they were. And now we have the Palestians living a marginalized existence after having been thrown out of their homes in the aftermath of WW II. But guess what...? that doesn't excuse their excesses either. Violence begets violence and their acts of terrorism and mayhem only serve to give the Israeli government the justification they need to clamp down on Palestinian populations thus breeding more violence. To both sides...Just fucking grow up.
