And can we build a mosque in Vatican? If i can build a Mosque in Vatican then I will be the first to welcome the church in Mecca. [I have no objection to anywhere other than Medina and Mecca]


The Vatican is the Church, your suggestion of building a Mosque within a Christian Church is just as foolish a suggestion as other foolish Muslim excuses as to why Christians can't go to Mecca.. You can build a Mosque in Rome, which is the Holy city and fountain of Catholicism but no you can't build a Mosque within a Church of the Vatican. To ask such a ridiculous question shows pure ignorance. So I say, when we can build a church in the holy cities of Mecca or Medina, then you can build your Mosque in our Holy City of Rome. Of which you already have that right. So open up Mecca to all Christians, be the religion of peace you falsely claim you are.
