Altering the Status Quo

Remember this?

The European Union (EU) is seeking to persuade Israel not to take a series of moves in the occupied West Bank deemed “red lines” by the European body, Israeli daily Haaretz reported, citing an internal EU document.
According to the paper, the European Union believes that crossing any of these "red lines"...might draw further European sanctions against Israel.
...The last [red line] is harming the status-quo at Al-Aqsa Mosque compound as the EU warned that attempts to challenge the status-quo have led to instability and increased tensions in East Jerusalem...The EU underlines that implementing those plans may amount to a serious breach of International Humanitarian Law (IV Geneva Convention),” the document reads.

A friend of mine wondered is an Arab who drove into civilians at a train stop was engaged in altering the status quo.
