You didn't mention the reason for it
by Diana Forum moderator / February 15, 2007 10:32 PM PST

It's so antiquities won't be destroyed during the construction of a bridge to replace a ramp that collapsed. All work is done outside the Temple Mount.

As for the Muslims. They are up in arms about everything anyway. They don't mind destroying or making fun of other religions but don't even think about doing anything they might think is offensive even when it isn't. I'm getting really tired of such touchy people.

I would think it ok to talk about a people
by Steven Haninger / February 17, 2007 11:07 AM PST

as long as one isn't promoting or being critical of their faith or philosophies in opposition to those of another. The religion of a Muslim or Muslim people is Islam...just as a Jew may follow Judaism. Perhaps this is splitting hairs but I would think the mention stays within the spirit of the law here.

Building a bridge?
by taboma / February 17, 2007 11:54 AM PST

?Muslims are against the building of a bridge on a holy site. Good for them.
How about a by-pass construction? DUR!!!

Spliting hairs is correct.

Holy God!! That is not allowed by the master of commercialism on CNET.
Why is Jonah posting this in the first place?

Avoiding the Two Bad Topics will
by drpruner / February 20, 2007 7:28 AM PST

become more and more difficult, especially as they continue to merge.

Example: During the recent debate on the Surge, I heard a Senator call the Iraq war a 'religiously motivated civil war.' I believe that's the first time for that bluntness, although I've seen others do verbal gyrations trying NOT to say that.

So ... How 'bout them Lakers?

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
