Solution to Jews and Arabs holy sites

Reader comment on item: The Muslim Claim to Jerusalem
in response to reader comment: Jerusalem in Sacred Texts

Submitted by Angel (United States), Mar 10, 2010 at 20:51

Question for Jews and Muslims:

If the Muslims have 3 holy cities, and the Jews just 1, then why not move the rock on which Muhammad stood to Mecca. The Dome of the Rock is not a mosque, but rather a holy site.
Move the site to Mecca to keep the peace. Doing this would serve a double purpose, a place to pray for Muslims (Mecca) as well as a site for Muslims to admire the rock on which Muhammad stood.

Since Jerusalem has the wailing wall, a part of the Jewish temple, why not let the Jews have Jerusalem so they may build their 3rd temple on this site?

This way both Muslims and Jews would have a holy site in which to pray. This is an opinion. If both Muslims and Jews truly want peace, this would be a way to finally achieve it.

Best,

Angel
