    Haram al-Sharif. But that connection is based on violent conquest and de-legitimization, indeed dismissal of the Jewish claim to the very piece of ground on which the Mosque is built. Just as the Spaniards knew full well that the Churches they built were built over Aztec and Mayan temples, the Arabs knew that they were building a Mosque over lands that were and are of profound religious importance to Jews. Let's put the point this way. If the Jews were to build over the mosque & refuse to give Muslims access to their Mosque it would be very much what the Muslims have done to the Jews. Of course, Jews are just Dhimmis!
