Located in East Jerusalem, Mount Moriah is extremely important to both Jews and Arabs alike. Moriah in Hebrew means 'chosen by Jehovah', and it was in the land of Moriah, that Abraham offered up his son Isaac on the altar. It is also where Solomon built the Temple for the Lord: "And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of." Genesis 22:2, KJV And also: "Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where the LORD appeared unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite." 2 Chronicles 3:1, KJV For over 1,000 years now, Mount Moriah has been dominated by the Muslim Dome of the Rock, which is believed to house the rock where Abraham offered Isaac. Together with the Mosque of Omar, the Dome of the Rock comprises part of the 35 acre Noble Sanctuary. The Muslims claim that their prophet, Muhammad, ascended to Heaven from this site. The Jews insist that they will never give up East Jerusalem; the Orthodox Jews are intent on rebuilding the Temple here; and the Palestinians want East Jerusalem for their capital. Thus, war is inevitable in the Middle East.
