nonsense no Muslim supports ?

Reader comment on item: Canada's Muslims, Not of One Mind
in response to reader comment: Nonsense, no Muslim supports the Zionists

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Nov 5, 2011 at 22:27

Mr Slayhy , writing from one of the more 'tolerant' muslim countries - the (' it is illegal in the UAE to spread the ideas of any religion apart from Islam through any form of media') UAE - suggests:

"...I don't believe a single Muslim, sees Jerusalem occupied and the sacred shrines of Muslims in that city are being abused every day,..."

Leaving aside the veracity of that unsupported claim, let's step back a little from the present day and look at some historical facts. There is no question that Jerusalem and its surrounds have been associated with Jewish history for at least 3 thousand years since the Bronze Age. It has been fought over and captured and recaptured dozens of times throughout the millenia.

As a muslim Mr Slayhy would know that in a few of those many occassions it was taken by muslim invaders , the first being around 638AD.

Perhaps Mr. Slayhy could explain to the readers on what grounds the muslims claimed a city which belonged to another ethnic group, with another religion in a region far from the birthplace of Islam. Perhaps he can explain where in the koran it says that islam has any right to jerusalem. I really do hope he is not going to use the pathetic fable of the 'night flight' to the 'furthest mosque' by the founder of his 7th century Arabaiandesert cult on the back of a winged horse with the face of a woman and the tail of a peacock as evidence. In doing so - he might also explain where in the koran that the 'furthest mosque' is clearly named as being Jerusalem. If the muslim claim to jeruslaem is based on such facts - then other associated facts must be available . It would be very helpful if it could be explained why the 'angel Gabriel' had such a creature - and if possible - associated facts such as where it was kept before this event - where it (or its progeny) is now, what do they eat etc etc.

Having provided such clear evidence - Mr Slayhyi might also like to describe how such a winged horse and its rider can fly from Medina to Jerusalem and reportedly to the 'seven heavens' - in the time it takes for a glass of water to fall to the ground - without either burning up due to friction or experiencing g-forces found in events surrounding exploding neutron stars.

Science would be deeply indebted to Mr Slayhy if he could furnish such answers.
