Arabs and Muslims have no authority to claim Jerusalem

Reader comment on item: More on the Muslim Claim to Jerusalem

Submitted by Bestley Joe (India), Dec 11, 2009 at 08:14

Let me tell some history behind Jerusalem. It was the capital of Israel under
King David and after the crucifiction of Jesus Christ at 70AD Romans under Titus Rayan destroyed the Temple and all Jerusalem inhabitants. After that Jews were driven out of their land Israel and Titus Rayan renamed Israel as Palastine.

Later Jerusalem was conquered by several other kingdoms including Islamic kingdom which was captured under caliph Omar around 690AD and till 1948 Muslim Arabs inhabited that land. This is the history. This shows that Islam conquered Jerusalem but they are not the owners of Jerusalem. It was constructed by Jews and the whole land of Israel was given to Jews by God Almighty.

Moreover I would say the most important thing in this subject. That is Islamic word Quran even says Jerusalem is not the place for Arabs and Muslims. If you read the Quran you will find an amazing truth. There is no word Jerusalem in Quran. Believe me its true. Please read the Quran. This itself shows Islam does not deserve Jerusalem. But if you see Bible there are more than 850 instances describing Jerusalem. This clearly tells you that Jerusalem belonged to Jews. Its a worldly truth. To conclude, Jerusalem is the land for Jews. But Arabs and Muslims have no authority to claim the Holiest place in the world, Jerusalem.
