Returning to Contention of 'Islamic Truths' Regarding the Temple Mount

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

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Dec 30, 2021 at 12:45

After digesting the following for several days, it appearing that there is still some rationale on some opposing fronts that Islam can maintain a claim to the Temple Mount when even the Romans, a much more dynamic empirical presence that still dominates history, could not make it stick. How do these statements compare when arguing that Islam will continue to dominate the Temple Site until the Waqf capitulates to the ultimate Jewish presence now on the horizon?
[Finally, Reiter and Dimant document the few recent authors who have stayed true to the Islamic 'truths.']

[The authors make these points swiftly and magisterially in their slender book, leaving 'no room for argument or excuse.' They do so with commendable scholarly restraint, hoping to convince a Muslim audience to return to its moral and religious senses. To which this reviewer adds that the day when Palestinians abandon their core falsehood about the Temple Mount being unconnected to Judaism will mark a major step toward ending the war on Israel.]
The 'Palestinian' claim is an apparition complicated by the ghost of Arafat that can never matriculate to an unchallenged presence in the Temple Mount; and no amount of interference by the UN, United States, Iranian Islamic Regime or Russian-Chinese influences will ever be able to completely wrest the Temple Mount from ISrael; ever.
