in response to reader comment: Reading the inscriptions

Dhimmino,

I have trouble following the dates of posts here, and apparently did not read Daniel's original post very well. He pretty much said all that is to be said on the matter. Islamic claims to the "Dome of the Rock" area don't begin until some 1600 years after the Jewish King David conquered the site from the Jebusites and placed the Ark of the Covenant there. In the days of his son, Solomon, the First Temple was erected there, patterned after the Tabernacle. The pattern for the latter, in turn, had been given to Moses hundreds of years before that time.

The Muslims are Imperialist colonialists, having swarmed out of their homeland in Saudi Arabia and occupied the homelands of the neighboring peoples. The first such swarm were Arabs, followed by Kurds, Turks, Mameluke Circassians, Fatimid Berbers, etc., until the British took the land back in the First World War. They deeded the land to the Jews, to re-establish their ancient homeland there.
