Muslims Have NO Legitimate Religious Claim on Jerusalem
Easter is coming up and I think this is an ideal time to make some important historical points about the city of Jerusalem.
The history of that ancient city gives us yet another important historical note to show that modern Islam is based on a series of sham ideas and lies. The idea that Jerusalem is a “holy Islamic site” because the “Prophet” Muhammad dreamed about going there and being raised up to heaven from that place is simply nonsense.
The fact is, of course, that it is only Muslim tradition that in the Quran Muhammad was talking about Israel’s Jerusalem. In fact, the book only says that Muhammad dreamed of “a distant province” or distant land. The name Jerusalem never appears once in the Quran. Not once. Again, the fact is the so-called Prophet Muhammad never once in his life set foot in Jerusalem.
Muslims have NO legitimate religious claim on Jerusalem or Israel’s lands. None. It is inarguable.
Interestingly, when you get right down to it, the Iranians have as much claim as the Muslims. The Iranians (Persians) had conquered the Jerusalem area before any Muslims ever came to the place. For that matter, even when the Muslims took the land from the Persians, they did so long after Muhammad supposedly died.
Further, after the Muslims took over the area from the Persians, they never treated Jerusalem as an important city. History proves that Muslims never considered Jerusalem an important city until the modern state of Israel was created.
Finally, it should be noted that the modern state of Israel is the first nation in human history to have organized Jerusalem as part of an official, governed nation state. Previous to the modern nation of Israel, the land upon which Jerusalem sits was only considered conquered territory. It was never incorporated as a separate nation of its own. In other words, there was never ever such a place as a Palestinian nation. NEVER.
