They should seal it off permanently.

" There have been clashes after Friday prayers at mosques "

Clashes are always after "after Friday prayers at mosques", world-wide, where there is muslim violence. Not just in Israel, and not just this time. Check it out. That is where the believers get indoctrinated and riled up.

Yeah I know what you mean. Christians and Jews in many countries go on killing sprees all the time! There is no excuse for it ever!

preventing Palestinians from entering Israel

Preventing the owner to enter his own land. That's what's this is all about.

Well, Haaretz newspaper in israel is pretty much convinced that the country is adrift, and that everyone knows it by now. Even their "Love israel" campaign is backfiring. Good! http://haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1155859.html

Now, now. Much land in Israel was stolen fair and square. What I mean by that is that land has been in Israeli possession for so long there is no longer any point even talking about. Israel proper is established and a reality and the people there want Israel.

But the majority in West Bank don't want Israel, so Israel should get out and stay out. Its just that simple. If Jews can't go visit some stupid holy site, I really don't care.

Really? You mean its not about all those Pals who have jobs, and whose economy is nearly totally and completely dependent on Israel. And its certainly not about the potential unrest because Israel is planning to keep some of its land.

Molenir, the economy of West Bank is totally and completely dependant on Israel because Israel occupies it militarily. Its the same reason the Poles were dependent on Nazi Germany! Never mind that they may have had jobs serving Germans outside the camp or received rations within the camp! Forest, trees!

Actually, its so dependent on Israel, because thats where the jobs are. Egypt keeps the border between it and Gaza sealed, not because they don't want people to get jobs in Egypt, but because they don't want the Pals. Likewise same with Jordan. Oh Israel isn't exactly helpful either, since their efforts to prevent smuggling of weapons used to kill Israelis chokes off large amounts of trade, but again it wouldn't be necessary if it weren't for the Pals in the first place.

Yeah, the Pals are sort of like the Sudetenland, a spear in the side of Israel! I wonder if you would be saying the same things about Poland if Nazi Germany occupied it for 60 years! Big mystery why Russia would seal their border, isn't it? Yeah, a lot Pals are trying to kill Israelis, but its not for looking at them funny! Its not going to stop until the Israelis get out of their hair. Nobody is going to open their border until Israel ends the military occupation and stops threating their neighbors over what the Pals do.

True. Since Muslim Arabs are incapable of producing anything, they depend on Israel for work.

Israel has sealed off the West Bank for 48 hours, preventing Palestinians from entering Israel

The Palis line up at borders of Israel everyday in order to get in. If Israel were the brutal regime the socialists claim, you'd think they'd be lining up to get out.
