I never knew that small town = no temple. I'm going to have to go back to grammar school and relearn the meaning of "small town," because obviously its definition implies the negation of the possibility of there being a key temple in its vicinity. There is ample historical evidence of the presence of a temple on the Temple Mount. I guess the Arabs, when they conquered Jerusalem, built the mosque on a temple mount that had no temple to begin with.
