I'm sure most of the people being displaced by the building projects are unwilling movers? Rare to see so many buildings, few thousands demolished en masse,

Vatican has many places where public is not allowed
for example their library

on the other hand Israel occupies land and kicks the native people out which is worse

And Mecca doesn't have "many places" were Muslims can not enter?

Facts:

Vatican - Anyone can enter.
Mecca - Only Muslims allowed in the city.

And then Israel is the "racist" and "xenophobic" state...

It's like coming straight out of Star Wars... Rwabi Abraij Albait might as well be a Jedi temple.

I can't wait til Vegas makes their own.

I find this monolith completely incompatible with the location and next to its historical and religious significance. Sorry not normally a NIMBY but this I would petition against if the opportunity were available.

I think so too. The small building stands right in front of Abraj Al Bait. I did asked around and people said the building is owned by a certain 'prince' thus why it is still there.
