Rock Falls & Conspiracies Explode
By Micah Halpern

Friday July 27, 2018

I've Been Thinking:

The conspiracy theory about Israel destroying the mosque on top of the Temple Mount is again spreading throughout the Muslim world.

This time the stimulus for conspiracy theorists was the rock that dislodged from the Western Wall and smashed on the ground.

Osama Qawassmeh, a spokesperson for Fatah, called it a "dangerous sign of what was happening in the al-Aqsa Mosque and its surroundings."

Yusef Natsheh, director of Islamic Archeology and Tourism at the Haram al-Sharif, claimed that the dislodging of the boulder was "not casual."

"This is a dangerous incident," Natsheh said. "It was most likely pre=-planned. This could have been a balloon test or experiment to determine the direction of the excavation working the thickness of the walls of al-Aqsa Mosque."

Unfortunately, sometimes rocks fall off walls. It happens for many different reasons. Sometimes, as in this case, the rock protruded from an arch, known as Robinson's Arch. The arch suspends a stairway that was destroyed in the year 70CE.

That's a very long time ago.
