Summation: Muslims tried to build a Mosque in Nazareth on a Christian Holy site and the government of Israel stopped them. I think they were justified in doing so.

If they were building on Christian holy ground, then I would say that Israel was justified in stopping them. I personally would not want to place a Church on ground that was considered sacred by another religion, even if I were originally given permission by the government to do so. I can certainly understand the Muslims being upset by this. But to me, it is more than just a matter of legalities, it is a matter of common decency and respect for a group's religious beliefs.
