News the HP Doesn't Cover: Inconvenient Truths

Not one but two news items today, neither of which I predict the HP will cover, as both violate important narratives.

First, another cruel Israeli restriction of freedom of religion, but this time enforced against Jews simply for praying on the Temple Mount:

Four Jewish Israelis were arrested at the Temple Mount Wednesday after praying in the Jerusalem compound, considered Judaism’s holiest site.The four prostrated themselves at the site, prompting police to detain them and escort them to a nearby police station for questioning, police said.Under current laws, Jews are allowed to ascend the mount and pray at the site, which is revered as the location of both ancient Jewish temples. However, police have the right to veto any visits and in practice prevent both prayer and high-profile Jewish visits.
Second, Palestinian rocket attack, the first in weeks. The Huffington Post, however, will most likely wait for any possible Israeli response, then cover the news:

Palestinians on Wednesday morning fired a rocket from the Gaza strip toward southern Israel, setting off alarms in the coastal city of Ashkelon and its environs.The rocket failed to reach its target, instead falling inside Palestinain territory.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
