More on Al Aqsa mosque, an Israel iairstrip, and the Prisoner X story

by ray goodlass

More Israeli military action at the Palestinian’s Al Aqsa mosque on Temple Mount, East Jerusalem. This does not bode well.

Also news of an airstrip being built at an illegal Israeli settlement, which will just expedite any plans they have to ramp up their activities.

And the story of Israel’s Australian Prisoner X (aka Ben Allen) has become a maintream media story here, thank goodness. There have even been questions in the Israeli Knesset. OPur Foreign Minister Bob Carr has asked for a report on DFAT’s previous knowledge of the affair, but will Australia take stronger action? It remains to be seen, but I doubt it.
