What really makes me angry when reading about yet another plot to attack the mosques on the Temple Mount is this:
They [ the Jewish extremists ] will not face charges but are subject to conditional release, and were freed on the grounds that they had been unable to implement their plan.
For heaven's sake, if these militants ( when I use this word I do so deliberately, because it is one of the euphemisms used to describe terrorists ) were Palestinians they most probably would have been eliminated, just to be sure, without due process, without being released conditionally. Only if you are a Jewish Hamasnik are you allowed to implement your plan before you are put and kept in prison, and the chances of such a terrorist receiving a preventive death penalty are not very high.
