If I Forget Thee, O Jerusalem

"I shall do for the Welsh Jacobites what they did for me; I shall drink their health." So said the aged Young Pretender.
The Palestinians have always had cause to say much the same about the rulers of the Arab world, and they have never been shy of saying it. But they have never had more such cause than today.
In this last stand for Islamic Jerusalem, where are the ostentatious hajjis among the dictators? Where are the Sheiks of this, and the Emirs of that? Where is the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques?
But then, in this last stand for Christian Jerusalem (and be in no doubt that that is what this is), where are we?
