Determining a Resolution of Who Controls the Temple Mount

Reader comment on item: Israel and the Temple Mount's Five Muslim Rivals
in response to reader comment: Projection of Islamic Dominion on Temple Mount

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 22, 2021 at 10:38

The issue of who is to control the Temple Mount is not over; in fact, it is so much so still a flash point that at any time, the next feint to agitate the IDF and the police against the 'protectors' of Islamic dominion on the site, it may not be a feint.
The last Ramadan clash there was a warning. And the new Israeli government may not be able to negotiate with the adherents of the Quran within the Knesset, even as we see they can barely hold the rage this never-ending contest of Jewish influences versus 'Palestinian' claims of priority. They are oil and water; emulsified but never merged.
The suggestion here is do not take our eyes of the issue here; that a constant deliberation of how to protect the people from allowing the radical elements that prowl the mount and stockpile projectiles for the next incident are constantly on the lookout for the next provocation, always waiting for the next reason to rage, the cause to die for; for it is that type of sacrifice that the Temple Mount is set for until its true purposes is fulfilled; which Islamic dominion does not seek.
