We've Graduated from "Storming" to "Defiling"

The irrationality and absurdity voiced by groups of the fundamentalist Islamic opposition to any expression of Jewish connection to the Temple Mount is increasing.  It is becoming more unreal, incoherent and detached from any  reality.

There was underground digging - that wasn't.  Chemical erosion - that isn't.  Trees felled by excavations - that aren't.

The verbal violence is increasing.  "Storming", et al.

Following yesterday's events, we now read:

Israeli police besiege Aqsa Mosque, allow Jews to defile it

The Israeli occupation police evacuated on Wednesday morning the Aqsa Mosque's plazas from Palestinian worshipers and deployed its forces throughout the Mosque before allowing three groups of Jewish settlers to enter through Al-Maghariba Gate.

According to the Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage, the Jewish settlers walked around in the southern and eastern sides of the Mosque's courtyard and some of them performed rituals...Earlier, deputy speaker of the Knesset Moshe Feiglin had invited the Jews to defile the Aqsa Mosque today to celebrate their Passover festival.

The Jewish settlers intensified lately their provocative acts against the Aqsa Mosque, and in one incident, they erected a Jewish plastic candlestick at the eastern corner of the Aqsa Mosque.

Is that the "plastic candlestick"?

That's on the steps leading down towards the Western Wall Plaza.  See how far the Dome of the Rock is in the distance?


Seems this is it:
