"As the navel is set in the centre of the human body,
so is the land of Israel the navel of the world...
situated in the centre of the world,
and Jerusalem in the centre of the land of Israel,
and the sanctuary in the centre of Jerusalem,
and the holy place in the centre of the sanctuary,
and the ark in the centre of the holy place,
and the foundation stone before the holy place,
because from it the world was founded."
Midrash Tanchuma, Qedoshim.

History of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount

Israel Peace with Iran and Neighbors is an open letter regarding the Temple Mount and Peace Solutions—It appears obvious that the key to peace is co-existence on the Temple Mount, without coercion of one monotheistic faith by another. The author calls for a ceasing of all belligerent Jihad tactics from the Moslems, Jewish dominance, or preaching by Christians. We can show only that we have the tolerance of other beliefs and will observe mutual Temple Mount access by all three faiths in specific areas that conform to the needs of each faith. The author writes with emphasis and points to Israel's history and specific Biblical prophecy.
