    You can see the Golden dome of a Muslim place of worship from miles away, but I bet very few know why Israelis allow it to remain on the holiest place in Israel. It's like allowing a mosque to be built at Ground Zero, or even worse a Star of David at Mecca.

    Why do they tolerate such a thing if the Jews are so evil?

    Always good when post #1 of a thread involves the pulling of the victim card.


    Jews aren't evil, and I've never seen anyone on this board say they are.

    Not true. However this is not a forum many Muslims visit.

    I have seen it insinuated a few times. I won't name names.

    But do you know why it is allowed to remain?

    The Israelis are more tolerant than their Arab counter parts.

    What does that mean "allows" to remain?
    It stands there for centuries, try to sack it.

    Not sure, my best guess is that since 1/4 of Israeli's are muslim that the gov't doesn't want to make them angry.

    The Al Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam.

    Mecca being the first and Medina being the second.

    It is allowed to remain because the Israelis could have removed it long ago if they wanted, like how the Taliban blew up those statues of Buddha. If there was a Jewish holy site in Iraq or Pakistan, it would have been torched to the ground.

    Pieces of a new temple are supposedly in storage waiting for the go ahead to rebuild it.

    Why not do it?

    Why even wait?

    What is Hamas or anyone else gonna do to them that already hasn't been done?

    I agreed with the Taliban blowing up the statues of Buddha in Afghanistan.

    There was not one single Buddhist person who lived in Afghanistan.

    The statues were idols and deflied the Muslim country.
