Last week we saw the Obama mediated Israel-Palesterrorist meeting produce nothing.
Today things have taken a turn for the worse. What will ye great one say about the Palestine's attacking Jews for no other reason then them wanting to pray?
Anyone hear anything yet? I don't.Israeli riot police, Palestinians clash at holy site. Palestinian protesters attempt to stop a Jewish prayer event outside the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem's Old City, where such events are normally banned.
Reporting from Jerusalem - Israeli riot police entered the grounds of Islam's third-holiest shrine Sunday and fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse rock-throwing Palestinians who had gathered to prevent Jews from praying at the contested site in Jerusalem's Old City.
The 45-minute clash outside the Al Aqsa mosque underscored the volatility of Jerusalem's holy places in the decades-old Middle East conflict. It sparked protests by Jordan, the 22-member Arab League and the Palestinian Authority, which is engaged in U.S.-mediated efforts to revive peace talks with Israel.
Palestinian leaders called the Israeli police action a deliberate provocation. Police officials said Palestinians started the fight.
Seventeen police officers were reported hurt and 11 Palestinians arrested as the violence spilled into the narrow streets of the Old City and beyond. Medics said eight Palestinians were treated at hospitals.
The trouble started after about 200 religious Jews gathered outside the Old City's Dung Gate, intent on entering to pray in the compound revered by Jews as the Temple Mount and by Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. Waiting near the mosque were about 150 Palestinian protesters who had been summoned by religious and civic leaders to block the Jews.
Sunday's violence erupted as Jews prepared for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, which started at sundown. It did not affect Jewish prayers at the Western Wall, at the foot of the compound.

and the Jordanians and all of the rest of Islam dumped them there to befuddle the Jews The Romans and later the English slandered them with that name and so far it has stuck They have been exiled from just about every country in the Middle East and are the Arabic version of Europe's Gypsy's .
