OK, so he got carried away a little… But seriously, Israel has been willing to sit down and listen to Palestinian leaders with actual blood on their hands – the least the other side can do is listen to an elected official who’s proposing a respectful, new order.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, ISESCO condemned the “suggestion by an extreme right-wing Member of the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, that the mosque must be taken down and rebuilt elsewhere in order to build a temple in its place. Aryeh Eldad’s remarks represent incitement to carry out a terrorist and criminal act.”
There you go. Terrorist and criminal. Apparently, those guys were absent from daycare when the whole sharing thing was being discussed.
Maybe MK Eldad should have started out with a bill calling for the dismantling of the mosque and then he could bargain down to equal prayer time. This is the orient, we approach trade differently.
