Will Muslims Incite Against Mitt Romney

The WashPost story covering Mitt Romney's visit to the Western Wall had historical geographical errors:

Romney stayed in the temple area for only 15 minutes...

...Romney’s aides escorted several other top donors through the temple plaza to watch Romney place his prayer in the wall....

...Romney’s wife, Ann, inserted her own prayer note into the female side of the wall, pausing for several minutes and placing her hand on a brick. As she walked through the temple plaza, one woman shouted, “Ann! We are pulling for Mitt!”...

The "temple area" and the "temple plaza" are up above, inside the Temple Mount esplanade, the walled compound.  The Western Wall Plaza is outside the Temple Mount area altogether.

I hope the Muslims don't get over-excited and incite.

And no, Mitt is not going over the plans for "storming" the Temple Mount*


A number of youth groups organized on Sunday afternoon a sit-in outside the Jordanian Ministry of Awqaf, calling for an official strong government position in response to the Israeli calls to storm Al-Aqsa Mosque. The protesters chanted slogans demanding the government to intervene immediately to stop the Israeli attempts to storm Al-Aqsa mosque on the anniversary of the so-called “Destruction of the Temple”. The protesters threatened to escalate the protest movement in case the Jordanian government did not shoulder its responsibility towards Al-Aqsa.

And read this ridiculous propaganda as well.  It starts off so

Israeli settlers and soldiers have staged repeated break-ins to Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City in recent weeks, as the anniversary of the destruction of the Second Temple looms for the city’s religious Jewish population.

and gets worse.
