Why the Middle East is Dumb

The answer is contained in the two posts immediately below this.

In the Maghrebi Gate affair, Israel is planning to replace an unsafe bridge that secures access to the Haram ash-Sharif that contains al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock. Naturally, one end of this bridge is near the Dome of the Rock.

In the affair of the patriarchate, for example, Israel is apparently trying to strongarm an overwhelmingly Arab Christian church into letting it eventually acquire pieces of that church's land against the will of the church members.

Naturally, the first of these two has generated an international controversy and riots.
