Michael, we are not talking about the RCs and Anglicans sharing the shrine of Our Lady of Walshingham in Norfolk. Jews and Muslims are obssessed with sacred space, land on which it stands or sits and historical memory. They are paramount to everything else. There is little memory of sharing, only controlling and the Temple Mount has become, for nationalist religious Jews, a flash point, the apex, the zenith, with growing segments of that population seeing it as THE national symbol, concentrated in the building of the Third Temple. Muslims see it as their third sacred shrine, inseperable from Mecca/Medina. The only way this will change is if hearts change and at this time in history both these communites have hearts of stone. The combo of religion and nationalism is toxic. That is what we are witnessing.
