Giving away Jerusalem-You are kidding!

Reader comment on item: What Jewish Ties to Jerusalem?

Submitted by K (Canada), Jun 20, 2006 at 17:30

I am not a Musalman, but I say one thing!

If Jerusalem is lost , everything that is connected with Jews, their history, culture, its soul will be gone forever. It also means a unique and distinct part of human civilization will be gone forever. It would be a terrible loss.

I think what Jerusalem to Jews is what Mecca is to Muslims, Rome to Catholics and Banaras to Hindoos and Bodh Gaya to Buddhists.

The first thing Fanatics will do there is to demolish everything and build high rise apartments and parking garages. That is what they did in Mecca too. Demolish Prophet Mohammed'sand his contemporaries' house etc. and built ugly high rise apartments and hotels.
