    I sometimes wonder if some insane psycho actually did manage to make the Temple Mount unusable to all religions?

    There would be a three-sided war in Jerusalem, everyone would lose and the Christians would manage to "re-interpret" the Bible to mean something else. You know, same thing that always happens when crazy people disagree.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    For some reason that Reminds me of what the character of Saladin said in the film kingdom of heavenwhen he was asked "what was jerusalem worth?"

    He said "nothing.....(short pause) everything."

    I'd be fine having Jerusalem nuked (other than the side effects), just to see what those three religions do with themselves. Grab some popcorn.

    😡Yay! Hack sites!

    You will believe and happily regurgitate any trash that smears liberals. Pathetic.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Unless Islam goes through a reformation, then I am secure in my analysis of the religion.
