Haaretz reported "That cursed Israel is trying to destroy al-Aqsa mosque," Mohammed el-Katatny of President Hosni Mubarak's National Democratic Party (NDP) told a heated parliament session held to discuss the Israeli digging. "Nothing will work with Israel except for a nuclear bomb that wipes it out of existence," he said.
And what effect do you think that a nuclear bomb would have on the al-Aqsa mosque? I am sure that Israel's response would have major impact in a number of Muslim countries. They might even have a response planned that would take out Mecca and Medina as well.
A little digging is not going to affect the al-Aqsa mosque, although I think it would be interesting if we all prayed for meteorites to destroy the al-Aqsa mosque, and perhaps Mecca and Medina as well, indicating what Allah thought of what these nutcases are doing in His name.
