Battle over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem

MUCH OF THE PRESENT VIOLENCE IN AND AROUND JERUSALEM IS A RAGING BATTLE OVER WHO WILL BE ALLOWED TO WORSHIP ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT AND  IN WHAT NUMBERS.  WITH MUSLIMS SAYING THAT JEWS PLAN TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF MUSLIMS ALLOWED ON THE SITE AND BUILD A NEW JEWISH TEMPLE THERE ON THE SITE OF AN OLD ONE.  NEITHER OF THESE RUMORS ARE TRUE. HOWEVER IT SHOULD BE REMEMBERED THAT THE JERUSALEM TEMPLE MOUNT IS  NOT ONLY HOME TO THE AL-AQSA MOSQUE (IT'S MOST PROMINENT STRUCTURE) BUT TO AT LEAST TWO OTHER HOLY SITES INCLUDING THE "DOME OF THE ROCK" AND "DOME OF THE CHAIN"!  IT MUST ALSO BE NOTED THAT THE TEMPLE MOUNT'S EARLIEST RELIGIOUS SITE WAS JEWISH FOLLOWED BY CHRISTIAN AND MOST RECENTLY ISLAM.  THE GOVERNMENT OF ISRAEL ALLOWS ALL THESE GROUPS TO WORSHIP THERE TODAY, BUT I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT WOULD CEASE SHOULD CONTROL OF THAT MOST HOLY SITE EVER FALL INTO MUSLIM HANDS.  THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL KNOW THIS EVEN IF MOST OF THE REST OF THE WORLD DOESN'T!  OR SADLY, THE WORLD KNOWS AND DOESN'T GIVE A DAMN!
