    Sorry - beg to differ. For Palestinians it is a new found religious significance - for Jews it was the original capital (so not simply a holly city as you mention - it was the Capital, the location of the Sanhedrin (the 'kneset' and the center of religion - temple) - none of these applies in Palestinian context. Note also that Islam is a new invention relative to Judaism - and has decided to inject its narrative to on existing people (jews) narrative - that amounts for forging title document - tomorrow I will claim Aborigines in Australia are true owners of Meca & Medina by divine order and then what - have that claim accepted? The Quaran acknowledges who came first !!! thus if you (Islam) stake your holy site in the middle of someone elses existing holy site don't be suprised it causes some bad feelings and conflict (surprise supervise - especially after 1300 years of massacres against them) - it would be a very poor precedent if one was to capitulate to such logic...
