Pipes provides an excellent overview

Reader comment on item: If I Forget Thee: Does Jerusalem Really Matter to Islam?

Submitted by Les Peterson (United States), May 20, 2002 at 23:09

A friend of mine recently defended the Arab world's interests in Jerusalem by suggesting that Mohammad "rose to heaven from the Church of the Rock"(sic). I explained to him that there are misunderstandings surrounding the Quran passages, but Daniel Pipes' article succinctly provides an excellent overview.
