Who let the Jews into Jerusalem?

Reader comment on item: Jerusalem Means More to Jews Than to Muslims

...The Christians slaughtered the Jews during the Crusades. No Jews were allowed in Jerusalem. Who let the Jews back into Jerusalem? The Turkish Muslims. ...
Jerusalem is more important to us, so all the Muslims should leave?

Regarding Al Aqsa, you are probably unaware, as most Muslims are, that the Al Aqsa of the Holy Qur'an is not the Al Aqsa of Jerusalem. It is a small white mosque in Qadian, India. It is the mosque of the Promised Messiah, alai salam. When he was alive, it had black rails, but they have painted them white so that the entire minaret is white.

You are right. Mecca is for Muslims and they have not been thrown out of it since the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) did his circuit around Kabba, the oldest house of worship in the entire world. They should let Christians and Jews in. Inshallah, one day they will.

Why did God tell the Muslims to worship in the direction of the Kabba? He wanted to make a distinction between the Jews and the Muslims.

You suggest that the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) was copying the Jews. Yes, why not? They were God's chosen people. They had the longest succession of prophets known to man. The Jewish people received spiritual knowledge--God's greatest gift.

My husband's family is descended from the Yusufzi, the younger brother of Joseph, one of the lost tribes of Israel. ... But, their tribe converted to Islam when Jesus travelled to Sri Nager, where he died. (Read Jesus in India) and they converted to Ahmadiyyat with the advent of the Promised Messiah.
