Arafat shocked President Clinton and co. at Camp David by anouncing that Solomon's Temple had been built in Shechem or Yemen, not Jerusalem. The holiest site in Judaism is the Temple Mount, NOT the Western Wall, and it is Jewish tolerance that permits the Muslim religious leaders to control the Mount to the extent that it is illegal for a Jew to pray even quietly on the Mount. Other ancient Jewish holy sites are Hebron [Cave of the Patriarch and Matriarchs] and Bethlehem, City of David and Tomb of Rachel. These places have also been claimed as 'Islamic' sites, rather than sites we can share.
