3rd most important to you, but first important to them

in response to reader comment: You are clearly not open minded towards the muslim opinion of the topic

So Jerusalem is 3rd most important to Islam, but it is THE number one, first most important place for Jews. I'm not trying to put words in your mouth and realize this isn't what you had said- but it seems to me as if Jews don't have a place on this earth. It's as if many who believe in Islam (and other people as well) would prefer to see that the Jews are wiped off of the planet. You guys can pray towards Mecca. At least you have something. What do the Jews have? They have to continuously fight for their intended Holy Land. There are tons of places for Arabs to go, but there is only a few places Jews are welcomed.

Look at where Israel is on a map. What surrounds them? Take a look. The Israelis have one place that is most important to them, yet it has been taken away. That sounds selfish to me. Just my opinion.
