    Good work by the various security agencies of Israel.

    All acts of violence, and that includes sexual and physical violence, must not take place on the Temple Mount. If the “Noble Sanctuary” is to live up to its name, all parties connected to the 150,000 sq.m. trapezoid platform in the midst of the Old City must ensure that it is noble. i.e. “of an exalted moral or mental character or excellence: a noble thought. Synonyms: lofty, elevated, high-minded, principled; magnanimous; honorable, estimable, worthy, meritorious.”

    Also, any provocative acts that may lead to violence must be avoided. Great empathy and sensitivity is required in management of the site. If the correct management paradigm is in place there, the site will both attract and reflect divine blessings.
