Shin Bet: Jewish Extremists Threaten Jerusalem Mosques

Israeli security officials are worried that extremist Jewish groups could attack the mosques on the Temple Mount using radio-controlled planes packed with high-explosives or even "a manned suicide attack with a light aircraft during mass Muslim worship on the Mount."

Extremists may already be casing the site. "In recent weeks, the Jerusalem Police force has noticed a rise in the number of visits by extremist Jewish figures to the Temple Mount."   

Wow. This is the Worst Case Scenario. The Israeli security foiled an attempt to destroy the Dome of the Rock twenty years ago (and who knows how many before and since). Let's hope they can prevent these plots also.
