    What the writer (and Haaretz) doesnot grasp, is the 'energetic charge' of Jerusalem. Jerusalem isn't called 'holy' for no reason. There is an enormous outpouring of raw divine energy here, that is why it was called 'the navel' of the world. This energy has to be channeled properly, in order to be beneficial to humanity.Tthat is why the Temple was built, with very precise measurements, in order to contain this energy. The destruction of the Second Temple was like a melt-down on the scale of Chernobyl, energetically speaking. This energy needs to be contained again - which is what all orthodox people are trying to do with prayer and keeping mitzwot, greatly helped by a small number of tzaddikim (also female ones!) This raw divine energy is the reason both Jews and Moslims desire to live here, but the energy is dangerous if not contained properly. That is why the Turks and the British and any foreign occupiers didnot manage to maintain their presence here!
