Imagine, if you will, a bridge: A great bridge of magnificent, contemporary architecture, designed to bear great caravans of riches over another, older route still filled to its brim with its own thrush and movement of activity.
The bridge allows for the uninterrupted flow of the crosswinds of transportation and commerce.
The great bridge is suspended, as if by magic, from the most great and powerful idol of the god "Phallus."
The bridge's shape sweeps around smoothly, almost completely surrounding its life-bearer, coincidentally, or not, in the shape of the crescent, icon of one of the greatest enemies of the Jewish People.* From above, "Phallus" appears as the star completing the enemy's joyous representation, yet restrained by its netted thong.
Oh, great and wondrous bridge! Surely, only a monumental ceremony of dedication, filled with rockets and pagan dances, could chance reaching the level of your glory!
Only, first we must cover up your pagan character, in order to introduce glory and worship, and praise of the enemy in secret. Let us bring a shofar blast, so that viewers will be stunned and aware of the virgins suspended on display are actually the sacrifices to made in your honor, appeasing the great "Phallus," glorifying and paganizing the entrance to the great capital city.
The northwestern corner of the capital city now appears to have a gated entrance, a gate into the city, from the west....
View from inside the "gate" looking outward
...The primary power** of the Erev Rav (mixed multitude) is at the gates of Jerusalem, particularly at the entrance to the city, which is on the western middle line.
Rabbi Hillel Shklover ztz"l
Kol HaTor, Ch. 2, Sec. 2
*The same suggested comparison was made regarding the (9/11) Flight 93 Memorial in Pennsylvania. See the Crescent Of Betrayal site for more information.
**"Primary power" - The Kenneseth, the Supreme Court, and the Israeli Broadcasting Authority are all located within easy walking distance from the western entrance to Jerusalem.
I recently discovered that the Torah Revolution blog said much of what I say above, but more bluntly in A Goy Bridge.
