I would suspect other than Iwish, the majority of you voted for Obama, who appointed Kerry as his Secretary of State.

Sometimes you get what you ask for. I highly suspect neither would have an issue with this "request" of the PLO.

I agree. Jews must not pray at the Kosel. Jews should pray in the Bais Hamikdosh, may it soon be rebuilt in our time.

The Kosel was not built for prayers. It was built as a fence around the Temple Mt.

By nice. The person your're replying to is a secular teenager. As the the Kotel, it's actually a Wall and not a fence. Jews daven there because it's the closest they can get to the original Temple.

Jews cannot daven at the Bet HaMikdash because currently the Dome of the Rock is sitting there. Now if the Haredi and the other Ultra Orthodox sects would let go of their books for awhile and join/assist the IDF then maybe they may show HaShem that they are worthy of it. But sad to say, y'all think stronger prayer will get you there rather than action.

If you think your actions will get us closer without stronger prayer, then you're delusional. We will get a third beis hamigdosh when we merit it throu our tefillis and limud HaTorah. You need not lift a finger, unless it's to open a sefer.
