Sara and Jerusalem

Reader comment on item: Jerusalem Means More to Jews Than to Muslims
in response to reader comment: This is a specious (and rehashed) argument

"A mosque by the name of Al Aqsa (The Farthest) could have been built anywhere in the world, but for political and strategic reasons, Jerusalem was chosen."

I'd prefer to say "for deep, deep religious reasons, Jerusalem was chosen."
All Christians worth their salt know who the Adversary is. A mighty spiritual power hell-bent on destroying the Jews and Christians.
How aptly Psalm 83 puts it:
#"12.- - - Who said, "Let us take for ourselves the pastures of God for a possession."
As if the Muslims already wouldn't have millions of hectares of land. But no, they must pounce on 'The pastures of God'.
