    "Temple Mount has ALWAYS been Jewish." (David) Right, ALWAYS. As from king David. That is an indisputable fact. As is indisputable the fact that it has remainded so under the Romans, the Byzantines, the Persians, the Seljuks, the Crusaders, Arabs, Mongols, Mamelukes, and the Ottomans, and the British. And the Jordanians. It will always remain the holiest site of the Jewish people, no matter who controls it. Until Mashiach comes. "We can wait for peace." (David) For how long? "Time is against us. Demographically, it works for the Palestinians, and politically, in favor of Hamas and the settlers." Ami Ayalon, former chief of the Israely navy, then head of the Shin Bet - in December 22, 2001. www.middleeast.org/comments/1/3652.shtml In 2001, very few Israelis took Ayalon's warning seriously. Today, Hamas, whose name, up to the first Intifada, no one had heard, is in full control of the Palestinian parliament and of the Gaza Strip - now an islamist enclave we cannot live with nor defeat.
