Vatican Model to End Har Habayis Violence

Using the Vatican model, Israel Police has embarked on a 4 million NIS plan to restore law and order on Har Habayis, Walla News reports. Minister of Public Security Yitzchak Aharonovich and Israel Police Chief Yochanan Danino have agreed on the plan in light of the escalating violence on the holy site. The plan includes installing gates that will detect metallic objects at all entrance points to Har Habayis. The plan calls for turning Har Habayis into a sterile area like the Vatican.

I don't like seeing the Vatican even in the same sentence as Har Habayit. It's an ominous comparison. And how will detecting metallic objects change anything? They're using rocks and firecrackers!

The article says further that "The operation is well underway, being carried out quietly and behind the scenes." 

It just makes me shudder. 

Meanwhile, the "world religion" train is gaining steam...
