in response to reader comment: The Byzantine Church of the Umayyads aka al-masjad al-aqsa

Hi DNM,

Let me be very specific to you.

What historical proof do you have that the Umayyads were Christian Arabs ? Whatever you have told are nothing but speculation ?

Even if one accepts that the Al-Aqsa Mosque was built on Byzantine architecture , what proof do you have that it was not used as a Mosque ?

Do you have any copies of the prayers that were said inside the Al-Aqsa to proof your point that it was a Church ? And remember I want a clear visual display that Christian prayer going on inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque during the Umayyad time to prove your point .
Can you give that ?

If not then all your accounts and the accounts of those German accounts are false.

Submitting....
