1) In case of a "major" earthquake in the midst of Jerusalem, I really believe the LAST thing to worry about will be control of the temple mount.Originally posted by Communication
The "vertical" division of sovereignty for the temple mount won't work. What happens if there is a major earthquake, leaving the PA in control of air space? It might not even take an earthquake since underground construction by the Waqf has already resulted in compromising the structural integrity of the western wall.
There were few key provisions that the parties could compromise on, even at Taba. I am hopeful, but will be surprised if the talsk result in a workable agreement.
2) The issue of the construction work of the waqaf is irrelevant to the peace proposal (they ARE doing the work regardless of any peace proposal), and therefore needs to be resolved regardless if the agreement is signed or not.
