Your logic is flawed - let me give you an example I gave another commentator. Let's say you have lived in a town of several thousand - there is only one burger place with golden Arches among many burger places - strangers come to town, and, ask you where the burger place with the Golden Arches is? You automatically know, it is at 34th and Hamburger Street(made up) - probably, 95% of the readers would know we are talking about McDonalds. Same with the Mosque. There is NO pagan worship here - Islam, Judaism, and, Christianity , all worship the same God - the Koran meres much of the Torah, BUT IN MORE DETAIL, much of which has been confirmed. It was NOT a political movement, but a religion, as much as the Bible was,Christians believe Jesus was God's son, and, God in the flesh, Jews do NOT believe Jesus was anything other than a regular, human male, and the savior is yet to come, Islam believes Jesus was a prophet with a connection to God, much like Mohammad.
