Eric Cantor v. Temple Mount Destruction

There was a bloggers' conference call on Thursday with Representative Eric Cantor (R-Va.). Unfortunately, I missed it because a four-letter word called "work" got in the way. Cantor has introduced bi-partisan legislation in the US Congress condemning the Wakf's ongoing destruction of the Temple Mount.

You can find much more on this story at Boker Tov Boulder and at Gateway Pundit.

I discussed the destruction of the Temple Mount (with pictures and videos) here, here, here and here.

Does the resolution have any teeth-i.e. no aid if the arabian colonists of the land of Israel continue to desecrate the Tempel Mount?

In 2001, Cantor introduced a bill that had teeth:

In a bipartisan bid to stop the destruction of ancient Jewish artifacts located under the Temple Mount, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Virginia) introduced legislation into Congress on Thursday that would eliminate aid to the Palestinian Authority should it continue to authorize the removal of archeological antiquities from Judaism's holiest site.

You can see the result here.

This time around, the bill is just a condemnation.

During the conference call, Cantor said that the purpose was to generate debate. Considering how little world attention this is getting in comparison with the destruction of the Buddhas by the Taliban, that is a worthy goal too.
