The US and other hypocrits slamming Israel over this issue never asked anyone about their own choice for historically relevant sites. Why must Israel? Simply because Palestinian Statehood demands it...Ok- That is about as logical as Israel wanting Damascus and Baghdad since Jews lived there once and had thriving communities...This is about our Faith, History and Peoplehood! We remember what happened when Muslim's trashed Rachel's tomb and other Jewish sites in there quest for recognition. When the Muslims give up Mecca and Medina then they can have Rachel's tomb and those of OUR Matriarchs and Patriarchs!
