“The Jewish people have no claim whatsoever to sovereignty over this holy site, which is under Islamic authority, nor over any other holy site.” -Rabbi Zonenfeld

One who believed ignorance is truly bliss must have thought nothing about the future or what may occur due to their ignorance. It is bliss, for a period of time at least, because it is impossible to worry and bring stress to yourself over something you know nothing about. It is not until the truth is revealed, changes are made, and it is too late to change what is done, is ignorance not so bliss after all. After all that, the blissful feeling brought by ignorance becomes a feeling of remorse or regret. Regret that one was so unaware, and can do nothing because the time for them to gain knowledge and possibly change what has happened, has passed. I myself was completely ignorant to a topic I thought I knew so well. A topic I was so confident in at the time, I could even challenge my own professor.

It encloses over thirty-five acres of fountains, gardens, buildings, and domes. At its southernmost, is Masjid Al-Aqsa, and at its center, the celebrated Dome of the Rock. The entire area is regarded as a mosque and comprises nearly one sixth of the walled city of Jerusalem.
To the Muslims, Masjid Al-Aqsa is important because it is the first Qiblah (the place toward which Muslims turn in prayer) and it is where prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) visited during his night journey and ascension (called Isra' and Mi'raj in the Quran).
