Zav, I have news for you,

I am a muslim and I say of course the Jews have a right to a place of worship in the place they are accustomed to.this disproves your emotive hyperbole about "muslims".

What we need to do is work out how to share this space. I don't think the scare tactic that went on in previous years from (some) Israelis helped... you know threats to occupy the space and blow up the mosque.

Do you believe we have a right to a place of worship on the same spot?

As an aside, I would tend to distance myself from the Christians most enthusiastic about your project, they see it as a harbinger of Armageddon and a place for Satans minions to have their abomination of desecration... hardly a respectful view of Judaism I would think. yet this anti-Jewish viewpoint is what Muslims are constantly accused of having (albeit with some justification), it seems enemies appear only where you want to see them.

Remember it was the pagan romans who destroyed the second temple and dispersed the Jews, not Muslims.
