If Allah is not a pagan moon god, why do you all pay towards a pagan temple? The pagan Temple of the moon god, This is clearly documented that the Kabbah was a pagan Temple?

Why do Muslims pray to God and Mohammed, surely your non pagan moon God does not need back up? Muslims may claim they only worrship Allah, but to everybody else it looks like you worship Mohammed too.

If Allah is not a pagan God, then praying towards the kabbah ... it is just plain disrespectful? That is unless Allah is a pagan God, then it makes sense to pray towards a pagan temple.
