We’re hearing word that Israel’s security council decided Monday night to remove metal detectors that had been installed at the entrances to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Palestinians hate metal detectors like Democrats hate voter ID.

What exactly angered the muslims… metal detectors? The entrance? Holy site? Israel? All of the above?
Cool stylebook, brah.

In other news, metal detectors are considered anti-Muslim. https://t.co/nmFPx1XwPo

That's asinine. We have metal detectors just to enter schools. You're telling me in a well known hostile environment they have to remove it.

So i have to walk through a metal detector to go into a library but not into a holy site that is vulnerable to terror attacks? ok…

And Palestinians will find another reason to be angry & blow up or stab more Israelis anyway. https://t.co/2rmPbc8dxU

In an ironic twist they have metal detectors at the Western Wall because they'd prefer it not be blown up or people murdered there. https://t.co/wpd8xfOFSL

The Associated Press noted in its tweet that the presence of the metal detectors “angered Muslims.” This most likely does not refer to those Muslims who sat home and stewed quietly; it’s more likely a reference to the rioting which led to what Reuters called the “worst Israeli-Palestinian bloodshed for years.”
One young Muslim was apparently so angered by the installation of metal detectors, he hopped a fence, broke into a family’s home while they were having dinner, and stabbed three Israelis to death.
Now that the metal detectors are being dismantled, peace is bound to return. Right?
UPDATE: The director of al-Aqsa said that keeping the cameras does not satisfy Palestinians’ demands https://t.co/DCRsIX7Smp

In the place of metal detectors, Israel will install more technologically advanced and less obtrusive technologies that will allow “smart inspection” — at least until several days of rioting convinces Israel to dismantle those too.
