Description - Faith and Fury by Ilene Cooper
Towering over the Old City of Jerusalem is a place where worlds meet, conflict arises, and history changes. Known to Jews as the Temple Mount, it was once the site of the great temples built by Solomon and Herod. To Muslims, it is the Noble Sanctuary and home to one of the most sacred buildings in the Muslim world, the Dome of the Rock. Venerated by Jews, Muslims, and Christians alike, it attracts pilgrims and tourists from around the world-and is the focus of the bitter and intractable conflict between Israel and the Arab world that dominates today's news.
In this richly researched and illustrated book for middle-grade readers, veteran author Ilene Cooper takes readers through every step of this sacred site's turbulent history, all the way from its legendary origins as a rock atop Mount Moriah to its present-day role in the divisive Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
