    The arguments used are false. They essentially create the idea that only Jews are not allowed to have a sacred site. Only Jews have no connection to the land. Only Jews should avow their own history. Not all Jews that want access to the Temple desire to restore the old animal sacrifices. But even if they did. So what. Tell me, do you plan on ending the annual Muslim eid sacrifice? Think well upon this act that would overwhelm any such actions taken on the Temple Mount. The Saudi's have gone as far as setting up large industrial facilities to accomadate those who wish to personally make their eid slaughter. No breast beating, no condemnation of ancient barbaric practices, no calls for PETA to intervene. The creation and use of sacred sites provide an individual or community a place to communicate with the divine. Whether it be synagogue, church, mosque, or temple. In the case of the Temple, it was not just a place for sacrifice. It was where the spirit of God supposedly resided. It was the home of the 10 Commandments. It was the site of pilgramage for the Jewish people. Apparently, this means nothing to you. But if not for the Jews then, why everybody else? It's this exclusionary argument that makes your comments and Yaacov's so rank.
