Reader comment on item: Nightmare on Temple Mount

Submitted by Michael Kahn (Israel), May 11, 2003 at 15:21

As Daniel Pipes points out, we Israelis are allowing our enemies to destroy our national heritage. Must we wait for it to be destroyed completely before our government does something? I am only 13 years old and am doing a school project for my school in Metar, Israel, on this subject. The more I study the subject, the more disturbing it is. It is unbelievable that Jews and Christians cannot pray on the Temple Mount because of Moslem Arab violence and threats! What do the soldiers who freed the Kotel in 1967 and said "Har Habayit b'yadeynu" think today? I wish I had time to interview them and find out.
