The IDF reported Friday that there were four major points of clashes: Around 100 people are rioting near Qalandia, 50 Palestinians, Israeli and foreign citizens are protesting near Bilin west of Ramallah, an additional 60 people are protesting in Na'alin and 120 are protesting near Nabi Salah.

Rocks are being thrown at security forces at each of the locations and security forces are using crowd dispersal measures.

The thousands of Friday worshipers who took part in the Temple Mount prayers were dispersed witout further incident. Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino and Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch arrived at the Western Wall on Friday to be on hand to monitor the developing situation.

Comment: We all know the truth-the "demonstrations" were never designed for peaceful protest. They were and are designed ot cause injury to the participants on both sides. The PALS need a flashpoint, they will create one, no matter how our brave soldiers or Border Police are, no matter the incredible self control they display, it is inevitable someone is going to be badly hurt-this is after all the PALS desitre. They willingly sacrifice their own-this is a sick culture-call it for what it is.
