in response to reader comment: $1 million for Finding "Jerusalem" in the Koran

This is getting quite tedious trying to state facts and then you make up ludicrous claims.

Jerusalem was first called Jerusalem as a city by King David, the king of Israel. Looking at the very same reference that you cite. wikipedia/jerusalem, they claim that reference to Jerusalem was made even by the Egyptians (the REAL original Egyptians, you know?). The time line shows that there were Pre-canaanite tribes, then canaanites (Israelites), then Egyptian.

The supreme fallacy and arrogance of your claim is evident when it becomes clear that when you state that Arabs were in Jerusalem prior to Jews, you are referring to the Egyptians.

Egyptians, my dear clyde, at that time had nothing whatsoever to do with Islam or Muslims. They were pagan worshippers and had a distinct and impressive culture which the arab maurauders and Islam destroyed, uprooted and obfuscated with their extreme need to feel superior to every other group. Are you proud of your arab brethern blowing up ancient Buddhas in Afghanistan, in Indonesia, in Malaysia?

Stop fooling yourself into thinking the arabs have ANYTHING to do with ancient cultures. Just because you live on their land does not make their culture yours. Arabs have created and contributed precious little to this civilization, and don't you bring up the concept of zero as created by the Hindus. All we have learned about Islam since 1970's is how to kill innocents in the most efficient barbaric ways.
