Dr. Pipes poses in another part of this forum the potential of imparting some aspect of Quranic (Koranic) teaching in order to possibly bridge the chasm of contravening ideologies; shall the twain meet? If in moderation, the more virulent aspects of Koranic teachings are argued for relenting on governmental issues and mediation for 'harmony' between Jewish and 'Palestinian' citizenship in Jerusalem, even as the day of Ramadan passed with relative calm, they day prior was anything but calm.
However, imagine if the issue of worshipping on the Mount was both Islamic and Judaic, and were to be interpreted by both the Koran and the Torah, what would be that result?
