How would you feel if an extreme organization wanted to remove your Holy Site(s)?.

Extremist Jewish organizations in Israel have demanded that the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock from East Jerusalem Al-Quds be transferred to Mecca
Gershon Salomon is seeking the removal of the mosques from East Jerusalem Al-Quds, which Israel occupied during the 1967 aggression and illegally annexed it later despite international opposition, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth reported on Wednesday.
The founder and leader of the ultra-Orthodox Temple Mount and Eretz Yisrael Faithful Movement plans to have Israeli engineers transfer the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock to the Muslims' holy city of Mecca, the daily added. The Israeli paper also quoted ultra-right Yehuda Etzion, who is associated with Israeli spy agencies, as saying that blowing up of the Muslim sanctities would become 'inevitable' to if Tel Aviv fails to dissemble and transfer the edifices.

  • Well....to be perfectly honest, they already have. The local government decided that they wished to own a piece of property where my church of worship was located. They seized it by eminent domain and leveled the church building to the ground so that they could build a fancy new government building upon that ground. The only thing that remains of the previous church's land is a tree, which was cut down and made into a very unique pulpit that we have brought to the new church location. Our church was never paid for it's property, not one cent. It was fought to the supreme court in the days of Jimmy Carter and they refused to address the case. (Oh my, Jimmy Carter's administration....I am dating myself severely).

  • Of course Palestine is going to report it that way? Do you have the other side of the story before jumping to judgement or are you going on biased information?

  • This makes me so mad. I used to be a huge Israel supporter until my pastor pointed this out to me: Israeli extremists' attack on Nazareth's most famous Christian church goes virtually unreported:

    From now on I do my own research.

  • Here is something else someone pointed out to me not too long ago and I am a Christian woman. These are Christians here folks, we better wake up before Israel takes our Churches!


    "We, as Christian Palestinians and Jerusalemites, cannot keep watching with our hands folded in the face of what happened today," Hanna said. "Today it is Al-Aqsa; tomorrow it will be the Church of the Holy Sepulcher." "The [Israeli] occupation and its racism does not exclude anyone."


    HOW DARE THEY!!
