Hiroshima remembered today: did we learn something?

Which religion, Judaism or Islam, will show itself magnanimous in deconsecrating the contested holy site in Jerusalem where the Dome of the Rock is located. Perhaps Islam should take this step being the younger religion; since deconsecration may not be an option for Judaism? Perhaps it is not an option for Islam either but consider the alternative: the suffering that will result when this unstable fault shifts. Can these religions show us what it means to be truly holy? Or, is prophecy to be fulfilled: the temple will be rebuilt and signal most clearly the beginning of the end of the world?
