Truly a beautiful city - standing strong through the millennia despite enemy onslaughts - but it is God's promise to glorify His name here which is why it has such a magnetic attraction - not the human diversity.

My 2 visits to Jerusalem
Even though I could see the city of Jerusalem was heavily guarded, I felt a peace there that I have not felt before or since.
Call it "magic"; it was remarkable!

jerusalem is proud because of her jewish antiques and the story of the jewish nation and not for her arabic places and story. I'm afraid the part of the mosque is not necessary

The point is that Solomon's Temple preceded the mosque on the Temple mount by millenia. The Temple is shown erupting from the site and burying the mosque as the calendar of years roles by.
