Dome of the Rock as you know is the Jewish Temple Mount. The First-Lady visited the Jewish Wailing Wall and also the Islamic Mosque. In what order she visited these places is unclear and I would think might be viewed symbolically as bringing one side to the other. Yet, she was received not so well at either location. This is NOT about politics or about hatred for Bush as a couple of posters here have suggested on another thread, but it is about the wife of a man who has played up his Christianity and his being led by God. Thus, it is questionable that his wife the First-Lady would remove her shoes and enter the Islamic mosque on the Temple Mount to demonstrate peace toward murderers of innocent Israelis. I find that detestable and a strike against our Christian roots as Islam is the spawn of Satan while Judaism is the root from which was spawned Christianity. SOURCE Pandering to the murderous Muslims is no way to win Jewish sentiment and may even set up our own government for judgement.
