Possession of Jerusalem Remains Where the Owner Has Dictated - In the Torah

Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win
in response to reader comment: Jerusalem surely doesn't belong to Muslims

Anyone who has read and understood the Torah knows humanity is on no position to dictate to whom Jerusalem has been dedicated, no matter who has come in after the dedication and appropriated successor possessory interests that cannot be perpetuated beyond the control of the true owner of the land; the Tanakh has significant and sufficient evidences that no subsequent and insufficient authority will be able to contradict or contravene the determination of whose possession controls Jerusalem. If 1948 and 1967 did not bring enough confirmation of those facts on the ground, pity the poor intransigents who think they can change immortal promises for the sake of modern time, especially in view of the upcoming circumstances.
