(Once again showing that the left does not want anything like diversity but uses the word as a mantra to achieve total world-wide uniformity of culture, thought, politics and suppression of freedoms and ideas. Namely communism)

Thanks Richard, M., Wrath of Khan, Oz-Rita, CB Sashenka, Perfect Child, and many more thoughtful enough to send in materials.
A few days ago, CB Sashenka received this photo from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. A few Hebrew speakers have looked at it and the best translation for it is:
“The Temple Mount is out of bounds to Jews”
I still can’t figure out what the Latin is for, but that is the meaning of the sign and I am well assured that the sign was placed there by muslims. Oddly there are no cries of racism or apartheid from the people famous for doing so. Recently however, the Israeli authorities have arrested a few people for yelling: “Mohamed was a pig!”, an unfair epithet if ever there was one as any pig farmer can attest to. And in the ‘Real Politic’ of the situation, one gets it. Sacrificing real rule of law to avoid riots. The same reason the US will not start impeachment proceedings against Obama no doubt. But it is difficult to see how either of those situations are the stuff of civilization. If you do not use force to allow what is allowed under democratic rule and to stop those who would use force to impose a totalitarian will, then why have law or democracy. You have surrendered to mob rule already. Perhaps this is another case of ‘if it bends it improves it, but if it breaks it doesn’t’ kind of thinking. But I think civilization and rule of law is bending quite far these days.
