Having published an article today on the new Muslim love of Zion, it seems like a good time to pull together my main Jerusalem-related writings, with updates as needed. (For a complete listing, see here.)
- "The Muslim Claim to Jerusalem." Middle East Quarterly, Fall 2001. The last of several iterations of my argument that the Muslim interest in Jerusalem has always been instrumental, from Muhammad to the present.
- "More on the Muslim Claim to Jerusalem." DanielPipes.org, November 18, 2001. Updates the argument in "The Muslim Claim to Jerusalem."
- "Constructing a Counterfeit History of Jerusalem." DanielPipes.org, May 15, 2002. Notes the post-2001 attempts by the Palestinians to deny a Jewish connection to Jerusalem.
- "The Prophet's Night Journey to Jerusalem." DanielPipes.org, September 3, 2002. Considers a brave effort by an Egyptian writer to strip away a long-standing misreading of the Koran.
- "Nightmare on Temple Mount." New York Post, 4 September 2002. Raises the prospect of a Temple Mount wall collapsing due Palestinian Authority misbehavior and Israeli government lack of concern.
- "Collapse of a Wall at the Temple Mount, Jerusalem." DanielPipes.org, September 24, 2003. Looks at the continuing problem of weakness in a vulnerable and super-sensitive ancient structure.

- "Muslim Zionism." The New York Sun, June 6, 2006. Argues that "the Muslim use of Zion represents a more powerful force today than the Jewish love of Zion." (June 6, 2006)
