Yes Muslims did rule it for 800 years - on & off. What did they do with their "3rd Holiest site"? - Nada, nothing left it derelict to which except Mosques, they did jack squat to improve this magnificent city.SAM wrote:About 3,000 years ago, King David conquered Jerusalem from Palestine and established a capital of the Kingdom there with bloodshed. And the Ashkenazi Jews followed the footsteps of David who captured Jerusalem with bloodshed. The Christians conquered Jerusalem with bloodshed during the Crusades. Khalifah Umar took Jerusalem from the Patriarch without bloodshed.
In just 51 years Jews had transformed it into a united city - New & Old. A world-class & glorious city, where Israel's crown Jewel (Hebrew) University is located with 3 Noble Laureates among its faculty. (No Noble prize for suicide bombers )
Today, every religion has full religious sovereignty over their respective sites - with absolute freedom of worship, and with exception of hate-speech - freedom of expression to each & every inhabitant
