Ibrahim, Up until 1967, Jews could not visit their holy places in Jerusalem. Moreover, the Western Wall was used as a dumping ground. Even now, time to time, Palestinian Muslim worshippers throw rocks down on Jewish worshippers at the Western Wall. Christians as yourself, wouldn't deny that not only Jerusalem was built by the Jewish people ages ago, but also that Jerusalem is CENTRAL in Judaism. That doesn't mean that the rights of others should be denied. Indeed, Israel has shown it can respect the rights of other religions and ensure everyone's access to their respective holy sites. Let's not be hypocrites, Ibrahim. Palestinians and Arabs do all they can to "Arabize" Jerusalem, just like Israeli government does. When Jordanians took over the Eastern Jerusalem, Jewish inhabitants were expelled. You also would have to agree that Palestinians do not have a good track record of keeping the religious sites of others respected and intact - just recall the desecration of Joseph's Tomb by Palestinian mob.
