An Israeli court ordered the Islamic Movement in Israel to dismantle a protest tent that has become the focal point of a dispute between Christians and Muslims in Nazareth. The court Tuesday ordered that the tent, which serves as a makeshift mosque, be taken down by Nov. 7. Earlier this month, a ministerial committee ruled that a mosque could be built at the site, but that it should be set off from a plaza across from the Church of the Annunciation.
