Islam Cannot Sanctify What It Cannot Protect - The Temple Mount

Reader comment on item: Islam, Jews and the Temple Mount

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Dec 13, 2021 at 16:34

Some time back, when 'Palestinian' and other contemporary Islamist co-combatants raised the shackles and forced the Israeli government into yet another battle over the Temple mount, it was done in complicit articulate hostilities of those who would violate any validation that the Jewish community has any presumed rights to the locations at all, let alone that the truth of the Judaic connection has record documentation of the site's basis in Jewish sacred history for all who seek Truth to see. Therein lays the conundrum; with the exception of the al-Aksa Masjid, how much of the site is really Islam's prerogative to protect? Is Islam really in a position to protect that which is categorically Zion's to claim? As has been demonstrated, only in defiance of thousands of years of antiquity's assertion that the Temple Mount is Jewish and remains so, does Islam find itself defending what they are denying is truth. Such irony is really tough to contemplate.
