Reader comment on item: If I Forget Thee: Does Jerusalem Really Matter to Islam?
in response to reader comment: monopolizing prophets

By your reasoning, President Lincoln's parents weren't permitted to name their boy **Abraham** after the first Patriarch because that would have made the Prophet Abraham a "proto-Protestant". Jerusalem is holy to Christians, too, a fact supporters of Israel are unlikely to dispute given Israel's more pressing than ever need for friends in America's Evangelical Christian community.
