HOW A NON ISSUE CAN LEAD TO A WAR IN ISRAEL

Anyone who wants to track the progress Israel has made on the steep slope toward fanaticism, religiosity and backwardness must examine its relationship to the Temple Mount. Anyone who insists on labeling Israel a modern Western country can’t ignore the extraordinary change that has taken place in recent years. And anyone who still thinks this is a nonreligious society must heed the dark and insane forces that motivate it.

In no country in the West — which Israel pretends to belong to, more and more in vain — does an archeological site turn into an “existential foundation” and excuse for bloodshed. In no country in the West is holiness a matter of policy.

There’s a link between Ehud Olmert’s former bureau chief Shula Zakenand the Temple Mount: In both cases it’s a tale of darkness. It’s impossible to arrogantly laugh at the woman who held such a powerful position, who needed the advice of her psychic Ophira, and in the same breath accept the making of the Temple Mount such a key issue.
