Former Police Chief: If Leaders Had Guts, Temple Mt. Would Be Shared

Above Solomon’s Stables - where years ago a huge mosque was built underground, it is possible to build a synagogue.

Program host Razi Barkai: With an area of 144 dunam, in contrast to the very small area of the Western Wall Plaza, where it is be possible to make a reasonable separation between men and women, isn’t it possible to divide the area up there (Temple Mount)?

Former Jerusalem police chief Aryeh Amit: Razi – if the situation was normal and if the two sides – both on the Arab side and the Israeli side – there was a leadership that was brave and serious, that can make decisions and is prepared to engage in somewhat revolutionary thinking, then of course it could be.

More than that. Above Solomon’s Stables – where years ago a huge mosque was built underground, it is possible to build a synagogue. But that would be if the situation was normal and there was someone to talk to.

But when you have leaders on both sides who are timid – they don’t have the guts to make any significant changes – they only want quiet so that they can go to sleep and make sure that the day passed quietly – there’s nothing to talk about.

    You know, there's folks that live in lalaland……..do you believe that Islamists will worship with anyone, anywhere? You must be a special kind of stupid!

  2. Ray Comfort says:

    Look, you can come up with all kind of macho statements like guts, courage…..Islamists do not want to deal in any kind of good faith, never have. Here we are again, Israelis breaking their backs and again get ready for the big slam! This is just another precursor to another batch of bombings and ill will!

    from 1948-1967, the Jordanians and Wakif turned the Western Wall into a toilet for horses and constructed stables there for the horses and camels in disregard and disrespect to the Jews who were forbidden to go there. Even the stupid Neturei Karta and Satmar was not allowed to go there, so why must we share what is ours. In fact, learning from the Jordanians, the mosque should be removed to Mecca or Amman since none of the Arab leaders revere it enough to come and pray there which shows it is of little importance to them.
