As observed elsewhere and in continuation of the circumstances surrounding the Temple Mount, it is becoming more obvious that this issue which is central to the observance of Tisha B'av in its various multiple causative actions throughout history is more complex in its incitements and Israel is not going to be shed of the multiple antagonists seeking to find the one advantage that will give them a false sense they are going to win.This cannot be further from the truth.
Indeed, it remains to be seen that the political win the Iranian Islamic Regime received the hands of the American 46th Administrative Chief Executive in sanctions relief appears as license to resume the advancement of the thermo-nuclear ambitions and potential leverage to wrest further regional control at a great disadvantage to Israel. Is anyone surprised?
But what other item that was missed by many is now in view? Further incitement is now in view in that the issue of the control by the Waqf is being marshalled into making sure the observant Jewish faithful are barred from prayerful observances, just as it is seen regarding Tisha B'av which cannot be secluded and limited to the Western Wall any more. Yet internally, the Knesset is now limited by its coalition Islamic influences in relaxing the law that Jews cannot pray on the Temple Mount. The timing of the fuse is now being determined an there is no easy way to prevent more hostilities. The focus is found; who can stop it now?
