Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Sunday during a discussion on the future of the controversial Mughrabi Gate excavation that "Khaled Mashaal and Raed Salah won't tell us what to do 20 meters from the Western Wall," Army Radio reported. At the meeting, during which all but three government ministers approved a resolution to continue the construction near the Temple Mount, Olmert added that Salah was operating based on a vision that Israel would cease to be Jewish and democratic. Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni emphasized that there was no reason to halt the construction because of provocateurs from inside and outside who were seeking to fan the flames of the controversy.
