It was actually the most boring part of the tour, also the most infuriating when I thought about why we were doing it. The Muslims should be thrown off the Temple Mount.
I realize that there are some internal Jewish political problems with the Israelis taking over the Temple Mount. Orthodox observant Jews won’t go on it for fear that they might inadvertently step on the space that used to house the Holy of Holies.
What was YOUR favorite part of your tour? I really did enjoy the sifting, although I was also angry at the deliberate desecration of the artifacts. Made me want to carpet-bomb that big square thing in Mecca, for example.
