Holy places?

Reader comment on item: Nightmare on Temple Mount

Submitted by Suzy (United States), Sep 7, 2002 at 15:29

Your article and the comments of others gave several different angles of thought on the issue of the Wall. To date we in America have heard of only one Holy Place--a Christian church--that has been the scene of violence. You can bet your bottom dollar that when the Wall and the Mosque incur damage from the instability of the Wall, there will be crying from all corners of the Jewish and Moslem world placing blame on each other. But did anyone show concern for the Christian church-a Holy Place itself-- full of hostages and armed fighters?
