Sara - You must be joking !!!

Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: WRONG Samer- JERUSALEM is NEVER mentioned in the Quran!!

Submitted by Samer Sukhun (United Arab Emirates), May 1, 2008 at 17:00

You must be joking !!! Go read history books, if you don't believe the documentary

Look Sara, Mecca is mentioned once in the Quran by the name Bakka, Medina (Which means City in Arabic) is mentioned 14 times to refer to various cities in the region not particulary Yathrib (The old name of the City before Mohammad change the name to the englightened city) - Yathrib is mentioned once in the Quran - The sacred land (Palestine) is mentioned once,

Now how do we know that these are what they are, read my emails to Williame, you will find the answer there.

Quran Chapter 17: verse 1

"Glorified (and Exalted) be HE (God) Who took his His slave (Mohammad) for a journey by night from Al-Masjid Al-Haram (in Mecca) to Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa (in Jerusalem) , the neighbourhood whereof We have blessed, in order that We might show him Our signs, He is the All-Hearer, The All-Seer"

Why do you agree that Al-Masjid Al-Haram is in mecca, although it is not mentioned mecca there, but you deny that Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa in Jerusalem

Historical recording during Mohammad times, The Prophet said so, so I believe him. full stop.

You're wrong that the name Jerusalem was know for 2500 years, its name was Ilya not Jerusalem. even during the times of the Romans in Palestine during Jesus time and after him. READ HISTORY

Lowest or farthest is when the romans fought the persians,

As far as for your non-existant temple, eversince the jews occupied jerusalem in 1967 until today they are digging under the place of Al-Aqsa (41 years) they did not find anything, many christians doubt that there is a temple under the mosque - this for your temple, there is nothing - hot air

Do you say that jesus cured the blind and raised the dead ridiculuos too??

Yes it is true that Al-Buraq was tied to the wall, where the jews are weeping and crying on that wall and banging their head on it - is this normal too. - like what the Shi'at in Iran do, banging their heads, and hiting themselves - this is not normal

I suggest you read , instead of having a biased view with ignorance
