The Temple Mount is the most sacred and contested real estate on earth. Yet it is also a physical place in the center of a city -- and the center of a century of conflict between Jews and Arabs. Gershom Gorenberg, an American-born journalist who has lived in Jerusalem since 1977, ponders if God's mountain can ever become a symbol of peace. (#13978)
