Israel at this moment in time(whether you like it or not) is protecting what the world classes as the Holy Land,
It is obvious that you are ignorant of the fact that up until WWI, Muslims were protecting what the world classes as the Holy Land for the past 1000
years while living there since it was conquered by Saladin, the first Sultan of Egypt and Syria and the founder of the Ayyubid dynasty after
Christians began murdering Muslims and Jews. And that is why ALL Jewish, Christian and Muslim holy sites in the Holy Land were still there existing
when Israel came to be after being ruled by the Muslims since the year 1187. The overthrow by Saladin by defeating the Templars was motivated by the
ideology of protecting the Hold Land....for ALL who subscribe to the Abrahamic Religions.
So why, after a thousand years of protecting what is ALSO sacred to Muslims and Christians would they (Muslims) now destroy it? They could of did that
a thousand years ago....
now if Hamas and Isis has its way Israel would not exist.
What does Hamas and ISIS have to do with each other...?
So the question is if what is now Israel becomes part of the Islamic Caliphate would they respect a Christians right to visit its holy sites?
They the Muslims always respected the Christians and Jews rights to visit Holy Sites for the past 1000 years and never demanded permission or a need
to ask. I would hope so that remains true today as well, because to not do so would be doing exactly what Israel is doing to Christians and Muslims at
the present moment by restricting their rights to visiting their holy sites. Ordinary Christians and Muslims need Israel's permission.....to visit
their own sacred sites. As a Christian visiting there many years ago....I needed "their" permission and I'm just an ordinary Joe.
I find it ironic that you asked the question based on a false supposition, yet you are ignorant of the present reality of that being exactly what
Israel is doing right now: Restricting rights to others Abrahamic Religions of visiting holy sites.
You do realize that Jews, Christians and Muslims worship the same God, prophets and angels?
I had to ask because I find it amusing that some people have walked this Earth for so long and yet remain ignorant of that fact as well...
IMHO using the present tactics, especially of Isis, they would destroy all Christian sites and artifacts. So all you Jews bashers think on that one.
This question is of course posed for people of the Christian persuasion as the answer from Islamic fundamentalists is a given known.
That is not a "humble opinion". It is an opinion motivated by resentment...
But it is to millions of Christians who would be denied visiting their faiths roots. Another question for you. What would happen if Mecca was bombed
out of existence. THAT is exactly the same premise.
It is painfully obvious that you are ignorant of the fact that the Holy Land is sacred to Jews, Christians AND Muslims. All three are sibling
religions worshipping the SAME DIVINITY.
As for the videos you could cherry pick any fundamental religion in their countries that harass other faiths.
Yet, that is exactly
what you have done overall, and it is why you have come to the perceive matters the way you have in the OP and framed in
it in such a way.
