Continuing Temple Mount Contentions - Why Islam Will Not Voluntarily Concede

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

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Dec 16, 2021 at 12:08

The battle continues; Islam is represented by various contentions that Mt. Moriah, without any evidence but their own narratives of conquest, needs to be defended. If the Jewish narrative conclusively demonstrates that the Temple Mount has been theirs from before the Babylonian and Roman conquests (and there is plenty of evidence of that, even that the Waqf has not been able to get rid of): how does (rhetorically) Islam justify its claims. Even amongst the scholars of Islam (Sunni, Shiite, Arabic, Persian, those of Urdu and Pashto persuasions and from the far reaches of the Uyghurs and the Fiji Islands), where is the solidified evidence that the Quran dictates protecting what even the Islamic scholarship indicates comes from the people of the book? Anyone (?); for if this does not get correctly adjudicated, the enemies of Zion are prepared to go to guns, as can be readily seen. Why? Because they have no where else to go.........their rationale is so dictated, likely claimed in Hadiths. Their problem is that Hadiths are not really universal, are they?
