We protect the Christian sites as no one else does anywhere in this region.
The site has been the scene of frequent incidents when Jews try to break the rule and police or Muslim guards intervene to stop them.
Greenberg and Hoenlein concluded: "This incident underscores the awful damage caused by serial UN resolutions, including UN Security Council Resolution 2334 (of December 2016), denying the more than three thousand years of the Jewish connection to Israel and the holiest sites in the Jewish religion, which the Trump Administration has said it will work to reverse". We could talk about economics. He highlighted the ties of the Jewish people to the Holy Land as ancient and eternal, dating back thousands of years, including the reign of King David.
