You mean Islam isn't a religion dedicated to violence like certain people with predisposed racist opinions like to state over and over despite them being blatantly wrong and biased?

Its also dedicated to control through fear.

That's true of abrahamic religion in general

So then it's a bit unfair to single out Islam in that regard.

You did single it out...

...

Anyway, let's leave that there. New discussion topic! Modern-day Jews! Why don't they sacrifice goats/cattle/etc. any more?

I'm a bit curious on that too, why don't Jewish people sacrifice animals anymore?

We lost our temple and sacrifices are only allowed in the temple. i am sure there are enough "modern" day crazy jews who would have continued with the sacrifices had we still retained our temple.

You couldn't build a new one?

...

Wait, why is the temple necessary in the first place? My understanding was that an altar was necessary, but you could just build one out of rocks or whatever.

I think he means, The temple, as in a particular one of special significance. Would make sense, symbolically.

Yeah, the Temple of Jerusalem. But yeah, apart from the fact that razing the Al-Aqsa mosque to rebuild it would create the mother of all intifada, what prevent Jews from rebuilding it?

Maybe it would be too expensive.

It can only be built on a specific spot.

And its not allowed to sacrifice outside the temple, because at some point, the sacrifices became strictly public (as opposed to private), confined to the temple and were carried solely by a specific tribe.

We could just make the goyim pay for it, like they have for building one in brazil

Yes and no, israel gave control of the entire compound to the muslim wakf and the jordanian kind, but retained military and security control.
Btw, even if we were as genocidal demonic as some suggest and bomb al aqsa out of the skies, we could not rebuild the temple because it cant be built with "bloody hands". that's the reason it was solomon who built the temple and not david, who was far more devoted to god and wanted to build the temple himself.

That spot is, according to legend, where the foundation stone lies, which is supposed to be the first stone god created when creating earth so its the closest point on earth between mankind and god.
