Jerusalem is the most Jewish of cities. Its mentioned more than 800 times in the Hebrew Bible. In contrast, its not mentioned by name even once - in the Koran.

All you have to do to grasp how "important" Jerusalem is to Muslims is to picture what would happen if it were part of any country other than the Jewish State.
To ask the question is to answer it.

And just wait until they find out how important a Jewish Jerusalem is to Christians.

The group is considered to be one of Hamass largest rivals for control of the Strip and enjoys close ties with Iran.
How fascinating, and I hope not a coincidence or of much significance and especially not timely.

It is hard for Muhammad to comment in the Koran as the book is based onhis oratratory and he died and rose to heaven in Jerusalem. I guess the illiterate messenger was going to
tell a new chapter to his disciples but never had the chance.

God loves Jerusalem more than anyone.
If I forget you, Jerusalem,
may my right hand forget its skill.
May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth
if I do not remember you,
if I do not consider Jerusalem
my highest joy.

Jews loved Jerusalem long before Islam was invented.

Ramadan Shalah lamented that Palestinians and other Muslims showed insufficient love for Al-Quds, the Arabic name for Jerusalem.
Keeping in mind that to these fanatics insufficient
love means not willing to die for allah or in this
case Jerusalem, he’s calling for more deadly attacks.

Jerusalem is mentioned more than a hundred times in the New Testament, too.

Naturally they don’t give a damn about Jerusalem. Comes from trying to gin up a fake spiritual attachment to somebody else’s holy city in order to take it from them. It works fine for the ignorant MSM, but doesn’t fly with the rank and file.
