On top of the other middle east crisis', the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians seems to have escalated, with lone wolf attacks on innocent bystanders.  It has been described as a "surge in violence", as the Israelis try to counter these attacks.

 

"Israel's government said the immediate aim of the latest security measures was to stem stabbings and other attacks by Arab assailants."

 

"The recent violence has been partly triggered by Palestinians' anger over what they see as increased Jewish encroachment on Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque compound, also revered by Jews as the site of two destroyed Jewish temples."

"Israeli police and Palestinians have also clashed frequently at Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque compound, Islam's third-holiest site, and at other Arab parts of the city.

 

UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon called for calm, saying he was "deeply concerned that these latest incidents signal a dangerous slide toward escalation".

 

Palestinians have said they fear that increasing visits by Jewish groups to the holy compound, revered by Jews as the site of Biblical temples, are eroding Muslim religious control there.

 

Israel has pledged to maintain Muslim prayer rights at Al-Aqsa, but, citing security concerns, has frequently banned young Muslim men from entering the area."

Is this not going to add to the world governments' appetite to topple false religion, seeing that they are the main fomenters to war and unrest, when all they want is "Peace and Security?"
