How NOT to Rid Israel of Idol Worship

I can’t find the exact quote, but Rabbi Meir Kahane once said not to bother destroying the Mosque(s) on the Temple Mount, since the Israeli government would surely rebuild it, but more handsome than before…

I found a source in Chazal for this reasoning on Hyehudi.org, page 3 of Kedushas Tziyon #12 here:

הוא היה אומר אל תסתור במותיהם שלא תבנם בידך אל תסתיר של לבנים שלא יאמרו לך בא ועשם של אבנים

  • Avos Derabbi Nosson version 2, chapter 31

The rest of the Torah article is well worth the time invested.
