Would not be surprised when olmert starts going down on his knees 5 times a day. He is already used to bow down to anything or anyone not jewish. When is this walking nightmare going to dissapear?
2. Shame!
Tracy W   (02.04.07)
3. No commentaries
gabriela ben ari ,   jerusalem   (02.04.07)
4. Why Minaret?
Ehud ,   Raanana   (02.04.07)
600 years Muslims prayed without one. Why now? There should be no change in the status quo in any direction - no synagogue, no minaret!
Mama ,   Israel   (02.04.07)
6. Why?
Josh ,   Tel Aviv   (02.04.07)
The site already has four minarets. Why do they need a fifth one? Just to give a little plug to the Jordanian monarch?
7. # 1 bow even lower
stephen ,   ludlow usa   (02.04.07)
Daniel - 11: 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries; but the people that do know their G-D shall be strong, and do exploits. It's all written, Those who are really jews should get busy. daniel has told what is going on right now. Olmert is selling out to bush and those who want a one world order. I wonder what false friend just brought the message ???
8. minaret
gavriel ,   israel   (02.04.07)
That man is a real disaster for israel his marxist background and secular mind has no holy feelings to anything but himself, no Tempel, no God of israel, no nothing but greed and gain for himself. may God have mercy for this nation of His
9. Another instance of Olmert behaving like a kapo!
Nannette ,   London, UK   (02.04.07)
As he said when he came to power, he declared a war against the Jews, and he's keeping that promise. How long before Israel is another Arab state????
10. Great News
Palestinian ,   Haifa   (02.04.07)
Alhamdulelah!! This is great news! A step in the right direction (for once) by this government. Fact is though, Al Haram Al Sharif is undoubtedly the Holiest Islamic site in Israel, and administered by the waqf, there isnt much he could do. Olmert's approval was only ceremonial, if anything. And God forbid a synagogue should ever find its way onto our Holiest site in this nation. A3uthu billah.
11. ynet: place of al-Aqsa Mosque or Dome of the Rock
"The al-Aqsa Mosque now sits on the site." The al-Aqsa Mosque is located at the southern edge of the temple mount. The Temple was more in the center, perhaps a bit west of the center of the temple mount. This is rather the place where now the "dome of the Rock" is.
12. to # 1 -------# 6
tareq ,   jerusalem   (02.04.07)
u have been looking for tens of years for what u call the temple and u didnt find it..just stay away from muslims' issues and live ur life away from interfering in them.Its not ur business guys.
13. #9
Palestinian ,   Haifa   (02.04.07)
Oh! You mean like it was before 1948? Sooner or later we will be treated like equals, the law of return shall be ammended and demographics will kick in, just watch.
14. # 11 on the sides of the north?
stephen ,   ludlow usa   (02.04.07)
Are the jews being pushed northward to fulfill the words of isaiah, 14: 13 ? I fear that that is what is going to happen.
15. Jews, do not despair
David ,   Israel   (02.04.07)
There are many devices in a man's heart; but the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand. Proverbs 19:21
16. Israel Chose and Keeps Olmert as Leader
Jerry ,   NYC, USA   (02.04.07)
You should look in the mirror for the reason why these horrors, and more horrors, are falling on you. Kiss the Temple Mount goodbye.
17. no surprise here. olmert will do anything to please arabs
aaron ,   ra'anana   (02.04.07)
18. Jerusalem is NOT holy to Muslims
Nannette ,   London, UK   (02.04.07)
Where does Jerusalem fit in Islam and Muslim history? It is not the place to which they pray, is not once mentioned by name in prayers, and it is connected to no mundane events in Muhammad's life. The city never served as capital of a sovereign Muslim state, and it never became a cultural or scholarly center. Little of political import by Muslims was initiated there. It's the only holy place in Judaism!
19. Jerry, I certainly did NOT vote for Olmert
Esther ,   Ofarim, Israel   (02.04.07)
And, if you look at the number of seats Kadima has, not THAT many did. Furthermore, your butt is sitting in New York, who on earth are YOU to mouth off about what Israelis deserve?? Just keep your rude mouth shut.
20. Nothing but a traitor!! without a Jewish soul
Shiloh ,   Israel   (02.04.07)
21. You've got what you have voted for
Oleg ,   USA   (02.04.07)
Do not complain
22. #9 your statement proves that Arabs are intolerant
Nannette ,   London, UK   (02.04.07)
Islam is intolerant to any religion except it's own. You want Jews and Christians our of Arab lands, but if that's the case, we want reciprocity - and all Muslims out of western lands. Let's see how well you do without our technology, medicine, creativity and intellect. I'm sure that Wahhabism will suit you fine.
23. Symbol of hate
Brod ,   USA   (02.04.07)
Has Olmert lost his mind? Why is he allowing such a building to contaminate Israel? Isn't it a place where hate-and-kill-the-Jews sermons are going to be preached every Friday? Israelis should wake up and don't let your country be messed up by such contaminations.
24. Just when you thought they couldn't sink lower
Raymond from DC ,   Washington, DC USA   (02.04.07)
Words like "shameful" and "disgraceful" suddenly don't seem adequate. Like the supplicant, ghetto Jew he remains, Olmert operates only with the concurrence of those who mustn't be challenged, be it Rice or the Wakf. With four minarets already in place, does *anyone* in the Old City not know the times of Islamic prayer? Why suddenly, after some 600 years, do they need another one towering over the rest? Buying time against the underlying threat should he tell a Muslim "no", he is a dhimmi in his own land.
25. More rubble to remove when the temple is built again.
j ,   jerusalem, israel   (02.04.07)
26. Did he not learn anything about FACTS on the ground?
Mark Shamash ,   HK   (02.04.07)
Did Olmert not learn anything about FACTS on the ground from Sharon? Imagine that, no activity for 600 years and suddenly this!!!! It does help enforce a muslim presence. Is there anyway to protest and to stop this?
27. The Jews are Dhimmi's in their own land
Marcel ,   Florida   (02.04.07)
The fai8thless surre3nder and appease government of national suicide bows to their Idol's in the west and are fearful of their enemies. This is why the coward Olmert surrenders at every opportunity for no peace.
28. OLEG - noone voted for Olmert - we voted for Sharon
Mark Shamash ,   HK   (02.04.07)
29. b "LOL" mert wants to be the New Lawrence of Arabia
Bruno ,   tel aviv   (02.04.07)
A new moslem prayer room at Ben Gurion & minaret over Temple Mount. Next on his agenda will be moslem prayer room in the KENESSET for Tibi and friends.
30. #22
Palestinian ,   Israel   (02.04.07)
Your mentality is ridiculous. Stop listening to the hate propoganda and open your mind to other points of view. First of all, many Palestinians are Christians as well as Muslim. Secondly, stop attributing technology and medicine to Jewish people, while they may have developed some they surely did not develop most. Thirdly i encourage you to learn more about Islam (and the violent ideology of teh Torah and Talmud) before passing any judgements. And the "all Muslims out of Western lands" comment shows the depth of your intolerance towards Muslims. And your comments in number 18 really does show where you stand from a human level, really does speak wonders about what sort of person you are...
