The Temple of Solomon stood on the top of a mountain in Jerusalem. A mosque called Al Aksa now stands on that "Temple Mount", however the entire Temple Mount is now called Al Aksa by the Arabs and that includes the strange and beautiful structure that stands there and which is called called the Dome of the Rock. Today's cartoon deals with the threats of retaliation voiced by local Palestinian leadership to the idea of America moving its embassy to Israel's capital City.

According to Haaretz:
Sign Marking Mixed Prayer Space at Western Wall Removed by Jerusalem City OfficialsNon-Orthodox worshippers were shocked to discover Sunday morning that a sign marking their temporary mixed prayer space at the Western Wall had been removed by Jerusalem city officials. The sign, at the entrance to a platform at the southern expanse of the Western Wall, had been posted more than three years ago by the Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs, headed then by Naftali Bennett, chairman of Habayit Hayehudi. Bennett had also constructed the makeshift platform that has been used since then for mixed-prayer services by Conservative and Reform Jews. The sign was removed in response to a complaint from Betzedek, an ultra-Orthodox organization that opposes mixed prayer services at the Jewish holy site.In recent months, other Orthodox groups have made a point of encroaching on the space, deliberately holding their prayer services there rather than at the much larger, gender-segregated platform on the northern side of the Western Wall. When conducting services in the designated egalitarian area, known as “Azarat Yisrael,” the Orthodox worshippers bring a partition with them to separate men from women. “Removing the sign should be seen as part of their struggle to undermine the government plan to create a permanent egalitarian plaza at this location,” said Rabbi Gilad Kariv, executive director of the Reform movement in Israel. “It is a direct outcome of all the government’s foot-dragging in implementing this plan.” The non-Orthodox movements – together with Women of the Wall, the feminist prayer group – have petitioned the Supreme Court demanding that the government either build them a permanent egalitarian space, as promised, or redivide the existing gender-separated spaces to make room for mixed-prayer services.

The anti-Bush people criticized him for believing the Intelligence community and the anti-Trump folks criticize him for NOT believing the Intelligence community. I used the delightful Spy versus Spy images of MAD Magazine in today's cartoon.
