    Police on high alert at disputed Jerusalem shrine

    JERUSALEM – Hundreds of Israeli police patrolled Jerusalem's most volatile holy site on Monday, a day after fierce clashes with Palestinian protesters turned the quiet hilltop compound into a battleground.

    The complex, claimed by both Arabs and Jews, was quiet Monday, but after weeks of sporadic violence around the site, police were on high alert.

    Beefed-up patrols could be seen throughout the Old City — home to the disputed compound. But there were no outward signs of Sunday's unrest, even in the areas where the clashes took place. Shops were open, tourists were out in throngs and Muslim worshippers prayed freely.

    Conflicting claims to the plateau, known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, lie at the heart of the Israel-Palestinian conflict. Jews revere it as the site of their two biblical Temples and Muslims regard the Al-Aqsa mosque compound as Islam's third-holiest site.

    In the past, even low-level scuffles there have degenerated into drawn-out conflicts. A visit to the site in 2000 by Ariel Sharon, then an Israeli opposition leader and later prime minister, helped ignite deadly clashes that escalated into violence that engulfed Israel and the Palestinian territories for several years.

    Israel has controlled the compound since capturing east Jerusalem in 1967 and insists it will retain it forever, though it has left day-to-day administration to a Muslim clerical body.

    Palestinians see east Jerusalem, including the Old City where the sacred complex lies, as the capital of a future state.


    Tensions have also been heightened by the breakdown of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks late last year, and continued Israeli construction in settlements built on lands claimed by the Palestinians. Since taking office, President Barack Obama has been trying to restart peace talks, but so far remains unable to bring the sides together.

    You realize of course that the Temple Mount is in Jerusalem, which is the capital of Israel, right? What other country would allow some foreign power to control an area in its own country,much less its own capital?
    Of course anti-semitism and Jew-hatred blind you to the obvious reality of this.

    Temple mount is, has been, and WILL BE a muslim location until your kind instigate more death by Canaanizing the location. If anything, this is just another example of zionist racism. Which, is evident by your ironic accusation of hatred.


    By all means... claim Temple Mount. I look forward to the resolution that plays out after your kind grab another cookie from the cookie jar.

    If it's just a Muslim location, as you say, then it's odd that the article says it's revered by both Muslims and Jews. Eh, those with such hatred are obviously blind to facts - even facts they themselves cite.

    I don't think the religious affiliation should enter into it. What would people say in this country if we started giving up our sovereignty over land we currently control because it had importance to some religion or other?

    I agree. Emotions cloud rational analysis in these matters.

    It's the location that zionists want to build the next incarnation of Solomon's Temple. You'd have to be a real fucking idiot to not have known that. Tell me, Si, are you a real fucking idiot?

    none of which belays the FACT that in order to construct a jewish temple it becomes necessary to DESTROY the building in it's place. Which, i'm sure, you people think is ok as long as it's a muslim site being destroyed.

    The First Temple lasted 373 years

    the Second lasted 585 years.

    The Dome of the Rock has been on the Temple Mount for 1318 years.
    The current Al Aqsa mosque is 976 years old.




    And yet, apparently, it's only jewish holy sites which are revered enough to count.
