Posted on 06/18/2006 7:13:25 AM PDT by jihadiallawadi
The al-Aksa mosque is mistakenly called, Omars mosque after the first Caliph of Jerusalem who captured the city in 638CE. This religious shrine was a hoax-gone-bad for Caliph Abd al-Wahd (705-715 CE). Wahd actually completed construction and named it al-Aksa so that it would sound like the one mentioned in the Koran.
Wahd desired to draw prayer and, more importantly, attention to the place where he was then ruler, Jerusalem. This attempt failed since Mohammed had a stern restriction regarding Jerusalem.
The site fell into disrepair and, up until this century, no Islamic monarch deemed the Dome or the mosque important enough to visit.
Haj Amin (the mufti and Hitler's inspiration for the "Final Solution") was successful where Malik and Wahd failed. Abandoned and colorless, Amin used municipal funds to gold-plate the massive dome and declared it to be Islams third holiest site. He was able to draw attention by attracting the worlds interest by way of media- in the 1920s version of COPS/Xtreme Home-makeover-it was a smash hit! Arab nationalism was reluctantly born by pitocin injections of fear and false pride. Jerusalem was now worth fighting for!

Mahoney can dismiss the claim all she wants, there are about a billion Muslims who will disagree with her.
The idea of ranking holy sites on some kind of Billboard chart is kind of silly. What are the holiest sites in Christianity? Calvary? The Church of the Sepulcher? The Vatican? The Church of the Nativity? The Mormon Tabernacle? Canterbury? Constantinople (now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople)?
Even if you can compile a list most Christians would agree upon, try listing them in order and watch the consensus disappear.
the holiest site in Christianity is the soul. The idea that objects places or things are to be worshiped and ranked should be considered blasphemous by any modern worshiper!
The following are a few phrases that we allow the communist left to define in the area of ideas and debate: [Actual Vs. how the left is allowed to define it]
Abortion = Choice, Bias against whites = affirmative action, Taxpayer's dollars = Paid by the Government, allow the uneducated to advance = social promotion, speak like a dumb a$$ = Ebonics, handicapped = challenged, accept any view (except from the right) = tolerance, any view from the right = hate, Islamo-terrorists = Religion of peace... Please feel free to add your own.
We have allowed to left to define the terms for so long we no longer, if we ever did, attempt to first correct the terminology before entering the debate. In doing so, we lose the debate before it is even started.
Until we correctly define Is_slime as just another KKK or Nazi type hate group we will be prevented from using all the legal means available to us.
Hitler did that on his own.
Anyone who had bothered to skim through "Mein Kampf" would know where Hitler derived his ideas.
Good point. Revering a place or an object is idolatry. But since the beginnings of Christianity, the faithful have made pilgrimages. Arguably, a pilgrimage is more about enduring the journey than arriving at the destination, but pilgrimage is part of the Christian experience. A guy named Chaucer pretty much founded English literature by writing about one.
Now we're getting into questions of theology that have been hotly debated for at least the last thousand years. The subject of a library's worth of books.
My point -- it's impossible to name the "third-holiest site in Christianity," and it's similarly silly for anyone, especially outsiders, to attempt to do so for Islam.
To believe that Hitler acted alone is a problem. It is not hard to find the evidence linking Islam, Nazism and the liberal left-a union that OFFICIALLY began pre-WWII. Mahoney's book provides the evidence-but it's rather easy to find on your own if you are willing to accept the truth.
It's not difficult to find Arabs falling in line with Hitler, but Hitler made the first move.
Hitler really didn't need the assistance of Moslems to come up with his crap.
The "Final Solution" was not declared in the 1920's.
Private diary entries of Nazi propagandist expert Joseph Goebbels and Himmler show Hitler ordered the mass extermination of the Jews two weeks after his first meeting with al-Husseini. The order was given on December 12, 1941. Goebel's entry reads:
"...with regards to the Jewish Question, the Fuehrer decided to make a clean sweep."
That stuff was written in the 1920s.
Mohammedans place far greater improtance to locations and buildings than protestants do.
That being said, Mohammedans have destroyed all sorts of non Mohammedan shrines and buildings over the centuries.
