Secrets of Jerusalem's Holiest Sites: Secrets of Jerusalem's Holiest Sites
Judaism, Christianity and Islam all consider Jerusalem a holy city. NGC goes inside the sites most sacred to each religion.
The Golden Dome is by no means a sacred place for Muslims. When they kneel for prayer, they have their rear toward the Dome of the Rock. Furthermore, the temple mount isn't sacred either. There are plenty of pictures showing Muslim kids playing football on the Temple Mount.
We are all children of Noah and descendants of his son Shem. The term semite comes from the name Shem. If certain Muslims believe they are descended from Ishmael, they are semites the same as the Israelites. Not all arabs are biblically descended fro Shem. Egypt is descended from Ham. This is all in the Book of Genesis and the Books of the Chronicles. The genealogy is clear. While the specific religious references in any of these religions are quite different, the location is Holy to all, as it should be. Some day I hope that we can quit arguing over who has rights to what.
We are human and we do not control God's will. At the time the Dome was built, the Israelites did not occupy Jerusalem. And it was God's will that the Jews be dispersed as their punishment for the rejection of their Messiah. Any who turn to Jesus will be saved. God's heart is very large and forgiving.
There is no need to argue over a rock and there is no need to remove the Muslim architecture because it was God's will that it be erected.
All can reside together and nothing takes away from the other. Can't we all just get along?
