in response to reader comment: Muslim Zionism

Submitted by Zav (Israel), Jun 12, 2006 at 10:14

What happened to a church ( Aia Sophia in Constantinopolis) conquered by the Muslim Turcs ? It became a mosque with the addition of four minarets. What happened to Constantinopolis ? It became Istanbul. History is full of such manipulations of the religion in order to render irreversible a conquest. Now, try to reverse this Muslim trend in Jerusalem and you immediately become the enemy number one of the whole Muslim world.No logic, no concrete proof will ever convince a Muslim to the right of a Jewish temple on the Temple Mount . As a Jew or as a Chrisitian, try to convince them that you are at least as religious as a devout Muslim and you will become the enemy of Islam. Why? Simple. Jihad encompasses not only the conquest of territories but also of souls. Sometimes I wonder: Are we at the 21st century or not ? Dark ages are rushing back.
