The Temple Mount: Where is the outrage?

Remember the archaeological salvage dig in February ahead of what was supposed to be the construction of a new ramp to the Temple Mount from outside the Mount? Remember the outrage? Remember the worldwide protests and how people who have never been to Jerusalem demonstrated against Israel's 'destroying' historical artifacts? Remember how Israel had to deploy a webcam to calm the storm and eventually canceled the project?

Now look at how the 'Palestinians' are using a bulldozer on the Mount itself. Under Israeli police protection!

From the archaeologist who shot the video:
This video was filmed on the third day of the construction of a trench in the Dome of the Rock exterior platform (The location of the biblical temple). The bedrock and the archaeological remains at part of the location of the trench are just 2-3 feet deep. The trench itself at some points reached the depth of 2.5 feet.

The video was taken at the end of this construction after the trench was refilled again.

The police prevented us from picking up any artifacts or from even bending over the soil to examine the artifacts closely. In the video a police men is sent over Dr. Eilat Mazar to make sure she won't pick up any archaeological artifacts, all at a time while a small tractor maneuvers the earth with no supervision.
Where is the outrage?

'Where is the outrage', indeed.

Not a word in the MSM, not a single mention.

Did Moshe Dayan fully understand what handing the Waqf over to them would cause?

Do I ever remember the demonstrations against Israel, as the arabs dug, and dug, and destroyed.

And Olmerde sits there, and the Israeli police aid and abet?

I still am still trying to understand how the mosque/weapons repository managed to be built before the Temple Mount.

Where is the outrage against the "Jewish leaders" - political and religious - who enable this abomination to continue?

Restore Israeli Sovereignty Over the Temple Mount

Jews Must Demand Rights to Temple Mount

Where's the Temple on the Temple Mount?

The Vatican Must Return the Temple Treasures!

A House of Prayer for All Peoples?

Third Temple Coming Soon to Jerusalem!
