True Challenge to Islam - Al-Aksa Cannot be Defended As Long as There Is the Dome of the Rock

Reader comment on item: [Ex-Muslims:] The Challenge to Islam It Has Never Faced
in response to reader comment: Revisiting The Challenge of Islam That is Still Unanswered

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Apr 18, 2022 at 00:44

The structure over the geological formation known as Mt Moriah, 'the Dome of the Rock,' has been critical in history form longer than most religions, certainly presumed longer than anything prior to the resurrection of the Jewish Savior amd more definitively, Solomon's Temple and prior, the sacrifice of Isaac by Abraham, even though so many try to reject any homage or reverence to the Almighty Sovereign whose written works testify of its supreme importance, as the Muslims do based upon varying versions of a much later work, the Quran.
The true challenge of the Quran is its timing; just as importantly; its challenge to the Jewish Scriptures which is claimed to be corrupted without competent evidence, is questionable now that the prophetic implications included therein are even now being completed in this era and lifetime. The battle on the mount is about al-Aksa versus the Dome of the Rock - whose mount is it really? Even Christians have a hard time with that.
