Jerusalem, May 9 - Experts have calculated the rate at which pro-Palestinian activists have applied to an increasing area a term that once referred to a specific building, and concluded that it will take only ten years for the inflation to swallow all of Israel, the Palestinian Territories, Lebanon, Syria, and parts of Turkey.

Al-Aqsa, literally "the farthest," Mosque, began its rhetorical life in a Qur'an passage describing a journey Mohammad undertook; while scholars debate whether that passage, 1400 years ago, refers to the current Islamic house of worship at the southern end of the Temple Mount, or to a location in Arabia, in practice the Islamic world at large applies the nomenclature to the site in Jerusalem. However, over the last century, agitators expanded the term beyond its strict sense, and now call the entire Temple Mount compound - Haram al-Sharif, or "noble sanctuary" in Islamic terms.

More recently, many of those antisemitic partisans have begun to refer to the Western Wall Plaza, below the western side of the plateau, as the "courtyard of Al Aqsa." With the inflation of the term accelerating, now including areas long considered entirely separate neighborhoods from the core locale, mathematic models now predict that certain Muslim countries and organization will label the whole region "Al Aqsa" by 2034.

"The model makes certain assumptions," cautioned researcher Darrell Harb. "It's impossible to pin down with reliable accuracy whether the expansion will take place uniformly in all directions, or whether it will vary in ways we cannot foresee. Initially, the expansion went primarily north, but also slightly east and west. Now it seems to have moved west, but only along the few hundred meters of the southern end of the compound's western edge. But several important factors weighed in following this model."

"For one thing," he continued, "Al Aqsa only seems to expand in directions associated with the presence of Jews. That observation guided us. We realized that the path of expansion will therefore move exclusively west, through the mostly-Jewish parts of Jerusalem, and then expand north and south, as well - more or less from the river to the sea. But since the Palestinian cause has a way of swallowing every other cause in its path, we also determined that the Al Aqsa nomenclature expansion will follow the same path, as the other elements of the Palestinian cause have also wrought havoc in the neighboring countries and worsened the ethnic tensions in those places. In fact that process moves eight times faster than the one associated with Jews."
