Jerusalem was never a Jewish city, the so called Jewish link to the city is a modern day invention to justify the occupation of the land by the Zionists. The handful of Jews or so who had lived in the old city of Jerusalem since the Arab conquest in the 7th century A.D never bothered with the area until the British Mandate in 1918. Previous generations of Jews who visited or resided in the city had never made any attempt at praying near the Mosque. Until the 1920`s, Jews never prayed near the site and only started demanding access after the arrival of the British in 1918 to the part of the wall of the Mosque where the current Western Wall stands. The entire history of a Jewish link to the city is a fabrication. Jerusalem is as Arab as Paris is French.
