As in most things, the overblown headline does not appear to be telling the real story. It sounds like they are merely turning off the floodlights that illuminate the Kotel (western wall) a little bit early to get the best effect from the sunrise (http://www.askabba.com/kotel%20at%20sunrise.jpg). It has been done before, and it will be done again. The Old City will not be, "plunged into darkness"!

This particular episode does not seem to present any further evidence that 'W' is a moron. Do we need any more than we already have?

Actually those lights were illuminating the old city WALLS (which the King David hotel is facing, looking East), not the Kotel's.

But otherwise your absolutely right, Alf.
