Reader comment on item: More on the Muslim Claim to Jerusalem

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Sep 2, 2008 at 13:53

There are nearly one thousand references to Jerusalem in the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. If this isn't enough evidence that Jerusalem belongs to the Jews, I don't know what is.

It galls me to see the words "Al-aqsa" instead of "Temple Mount", a holy place that was set aside for the Jew. Some might say, "What's in a name?"
