Gambling with Islamic Control Versus Israeli Control on Temple Mount

in response to reader comment: Using Ramadan to Leverage Temple Mount Authority

In an enhancement of antagonistic attitudes, and now with the threats against Israel made manifest in aggravated assaults by rocket and other military terrorists attacks (and which of any of Israel's detractors can stand with straight faces in their delusions and say Israel started this), we see that this is not going to be solved, especially when the American 'diplomatic' (they have no clue) posture vacillates in useless socialistic democratic fecklessness while the Iranian Islamic Regime's scheme seems to be working.
Think not? Then try saying that both Hamas (and Hizbollah from Lebanon) are not reacting to Persian al-Quds force's orders to step it up while the otherwise non-confrontational Arabs caught in the middle are paying the price in Arab blood as well as the losses in Jewish lives. What price is paid in Quranic pride in making the Temple Mount the focal point of hatred for the Jewish nation?
The European sensibilities are already set against Israel as the rocket fire directed towards Israel first is not considered acts of terroristic war, but Israel defending its sovereignty is? Think about this: when Islam attacks in Europe (Synagogue attacks in France and the like; anti-Semitism in Poland, et al); do they think sympathizing with the Islamic side in the Middle East is going to get them reciprocating sympathies in the European Muslim enclaves (or should we expect submission to Shar'ia (like the convert next in line to the British crown) to set the pattern for the Islam of the future.
Still, what is happening in Jerusalem and around Israel needs to be understood for what it represents and no one is listening, are they? Especially in American politics, let alone Arabic sensibilities, where do they this is going to lead to?
