Dear Dr Pipes, regarding M Tovey's note that Jordan awarded Jewish land to Muslims, I think Muslims have a false notion that lands can have religions and every land occupied by Muslims once becomes Islamic for ever. Such a notion is absurd.

I have said it before on your forum and I can say it now again: Christians, Jews and Pagans have a bigger right on Mecca than Muslims. The Muslims of 7th century should have worked hard and built a city for themselves at that time instead of usurping other people's place of worship.

It only makes sense. We have been trained to see the world through Islamic sunglasses. Otherwise, it is not difficult to see it the way I am saying it.
