in response to reader comment: A Muslim Scholar's response

Dear Dr Pipes:

Khaled Dahak "proved" that Muslim's claim to Jerusalem is supreme. He proved it by explaining that a prayer in Jerusalem is about 51 times more powerful than a prayer elsewhere and about 19 times less powerful than a prayer in Muhammad's mosque (etc etc). He also claimed that Jews have no right on Jerusalem because some Arab tribe reached Jerusalem about 6000 years before the Jews. Dahak further proves that Jews have no rights on Jerusalem because they follow some inferior kind of monotheism while muslims follow a superior brand there of.

... Dahak ... his reasoning is pathetic. By following his reasoning a christian priest can establish Mecca as modern Christian resort. Because it is really easy to claim that while reading Bible in Vatican is most powerful, reading Bible in Mecca is about 24 times more powerful than reading it anywhere else. Since reading Bible is 24 more powerful in Mecca, Mecca must belong to only Christian and to no one else. Besides, a lot of Africans who are Christians today, reached Mecca many centuries before Islam even came to this planet. Further more, who can deny that Christian monotheism based on forgiveness of love is much superior to the monotheism followed by Jews and Muslims. So Mecca belongs to no one else but Christians.

Having proved today that Mecca belongs to Christians, tomorrow I will prove that the entire middle east belongs to Hindus because according to my guru a Hindu prayer in Middle east is 71.2 times more powerful than any other prayer anywhere else and because Hindus follow the ultimate from of monotheism.
