in response to reader comment: Part trois: al-Tabari had no clue what is really al-masjad al-aqsa or al-masjad al-haram and you think that you know? You must be kidding

dhimmi no more

1. Qur'an 17:1. "The farthest place" (al-aqsa) is identified in Islamic tradition with Jerusalem much like calling McDonald's that "hamburger place with the Golden arches)".

2. NOTE: "The farthest place" - al-aqsa is the Arabic term - presently, the Dome of the Rock , and, the surrounding land making it up , IS the "The farthest place" (al-aqsa) ., so now, you have BOTH a description, and, a location, much like saying "that hamburger place with the Golden Arches, at 34th, and, Hamburger street(MADE UP in case you did not understand).

3. That's the Arabic term - you do NOT comprehend that. the Koran was written in Arabic. In Biblical times , until 1922, the region known as Palestine, was 93% Arab, inside the Arabian Peninsula(except for NON Arab Iran, and, in 1948, Israel - all is Arab).

Just what is it, you do not comprehend. I have NEVER been Muslim, nor, do I have any intention of being one - I am Christian, Episcopalian, ALL MY LIFE.

Practice what you preach, GET A LIFE - and, educate yourself - yo make yourself foolish with your erroneous thinking.

By the way, let's see some PROOF of what you have said.
