I am proud to introduce Tough Questions, Expert Answers, a new APN publication series which tackles seminal issues pertaining to the conflict. In a world where soundbites dominate, it is critical to take the time to understand the issues that can change the world- for better or for worse.
The first edition in the series is a Q&A on the Temple Mount. With tensions growing by the day over the world’s most contested religious site, this timely explainer by Jerusalem expert Danny Seidemann is a must read. As Danny correctly states, "the battle over the Status Quo at the Temple Mount/Haram al Sharif has increasingly become a proxy for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict writ large."
An attorney and world-renowned Jerusalem expert, Daniel Seidemann is the director of Terrestrial Jerusalem, a Jerusalem-based organization he founded. I strongly recommend Danny’s cogent analysis and clear explanation of the current turmoil surrounding the Haram al Sharif/ Temple Mount.
