"Oh let me see: suppose we have a Christian tribe form let us say central Asia and let us say this tribe invade the Hijaz and the convert all of Saudi Arabia into a Christian country by the sword and the Ka3bba becomes a church! How would you feel our dear BERK?"

-Istanbul and many other cities once upon a time was city of unknown number of lost populations.Who is the owner is depended on historical condition.Byzantine was not there lets say 3000 yrs ago.Before them there was hittites,frigs and many others on anotalia land.it is a war dream to say "everybody go home.if u dont have a home to go ..then you can die"

-"invade the Hijaz and the convert all of Saudi Arabia into a Christian country " it is a mystery for me the position of hijaz.The mystery :.Center of islam is kabbe.The center of all kinds of muslim actions. According to muslims Kabbe will stay as mulim place "forever".Kabbe is also not defended seriously.S.Arabia a good allie of usa( ─▒ dont know for what reason:)).I realy wonder what would happen and why not tryed up to now taking kabba to prove muslim world : muslims!! see now? kabba is a church.what happend to your holy kabbe?" In fact it must be very easy by a small operation.

I personaly dont believe istanbul is a holy land.But if it is holy for you i can try to share your feelings. I believe kabba is holy .One of corner stone of belief is it will be forever muslim place.Let me tell u,if one day if by any reason i see kabbe is say a church or anything similar.".

How would you feel our dear BERK?".i would feel that I was totaly wong in that belief,it was was not holy and will not be holy anymore.
