How can they fight for Quds if they Shias don't recognize Omar ibn alkhattab and scorn his name day and night? Alquds became an islamic city only after Omar ibn alkhattab made his covenant with the people of Illia (Alquds) when he entered it and took the keys of the city without fighting from the jews, the jews and christians agreed to Omar that: "Their churches shall not be occupied, demolished nor taken away wholly or in part. None of their crosses nor property shall be seized. They shall not be coerced in their religion nor shall any of them be injured. None of the Jews shall reside with them in Ilia'."" So, no jews can live in Alquds city only. Shi3as interpretations about Almahdi coming end of times to take back the Alquds is all wrong, no such thing as almahdi (never mentioned in quran) the Alquds will be taken back like omar did with people who fight in the name of God, not in the name of shias and sunnis and sects.

imagine now if alquds is taken back by a sect of muslims, what will happen next? shias will fight sunnis over who will rule the city? what a mess!

This is the covenant of Omar ibn alkhattab with the jews and christians of Illia (Alquds city):
In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate.
This is an assurance of peace and protection given by the servant of Allah Omar, Commander of the Believers to the people of Ilia' (Jerusalem). He gave them an assurance of protection for their lives, property, church and crosses as well as the sick and healthy and all its religious community.
Their churches shall not be occupied, demolished nor taken away wholly or in part. None of their crosses nor property shall be seized. They shall not be coerced in their religion nor shall any of them be injured. None of the Jews shall reside with them in Ilia'.
The people of Ilia shall pay Jizia tax (head tax on free non-Muslims living under Muslim rule) as inhabitants of citie...s do. They shall evict all Romans and thieves.

He whoever gets out shall be guaranteed safety for his life and property until he reach his safe haven. He whoever stays shall be (also) safe, in which case he shall pay as much tax as the people of Ilia' do. Should any of the people of Ilia wish to move together with his property along with the Romans and to clear out of their churches and crosses, they shall be safe for their lives, churches and crosses, until they have reached then safe haven. He whoever chooses to stay he may do so and he shall pay as much tax as the people of Ilia' do. He whoever wishes to move along with the Roman, may do so, and whoever wishes to return back home to his kinsfolk, may do so. Nothing shall be taken from them, their crops have been harvested. To the contents of this convent here are given the Covenant of Allah, the guarantees of His Messenger, the Caliphs and the Believers, provided they (the people of Ilia') pay their due Jizia tax.
Witnesses hereto are:
Khalid Ibn al-Waleed Amr Ibn al-Ass Abdul-Rahman Ibn'Auf Mu'awiya Ibn abi-Sifian Made and executed in the year 15 AH.

Alquds will not be liberated until muslims unite under the name of God. I expect the alquds mosque to be demolished by jews and that they build their temple on it once again. Jews now cannot perform their sacrifices because they don't have a temple. The temple of the jews is mentioned in the quran in alquds under the name "Masjid Alaqsa", in surat israa, there was no mosque there during prophet times, but still God mentioned it referring to the jews temple build by prophet david and suleiman. omar ibn alkhattab built a wooden mosque first when he took the city. Later, this mosque was destroyed around 5 times by earthquakes and finally built like today. In 93 saudi arabia paid one million dollar in gold to make the mosque shine with gold.

hence, relax all of you, this war now between lebanon and israel will not end with anything, and no one will win or conquer the other. We all will die and maybe in 100 or 200 years when muslims unite under the name of God and the jews build their temple, only then our grand grand children will do something
