Impossible to believe that one crazy supermuslim caliph named Caliph al-Hakim bi Amr Allah (the one who implements Allah's orders) in 1009 wantonly destroyed the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem leaving just a heap of stones on the place where once the Prophet Isa ibn Miriam had been born! This must be a lie spread in the west by some anti-Muslim propgandists to denigrate "muslims protecting their land". Muslim "scholars" have long since "debunked" this vicious myth by showing that "there are three only three reason for muslims to fight other then that one must live in peace with others".
