The Dome of the Rock, with its golden dome, is a magnificent mosque surrounding the rock where Abraham is believed to have tried to sacrifice Issac, and from which the Prophet Mohammad ascended to heaven. It's the third most holy site in Islam, located above the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem.
This is a segment from "Land of Milk and Chutzpah” a free video presenting a 1995 trip to Israel and Petra, Jordan. The video includes Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Galilee, Golan Heights, Nazareth, Bethlehem, Masada & the Dead Sea. Jewish, Islamic, and Christian holy places are all presented. (The movie reflects a time of optimism regarding the peace process, and the viewer should approach it from the context of 1995.)
