A British university lecturer told Global March to Jerusalem protesters on Friday evening that Jerusalem does not belong to Jewish Israelis or to Jews and that Israel is finished.
University of Exeter lecturer Ghada Karmi, speaking to protesters converged near the Israeli Embassy in London, went on to say that she respects all religions but that one should not be allowed to take over the city.
Karmi also said that Israel does not deserve to continue as a state.

Islam demands destruction of any religious sites, practices, and religious items that are not related to muhammed whatsisname.
As a Christian, we have trusted the Jewish folks to preserve and cherish the religious sites and items that are dear to both Christianity and Judism, and they have done an outstanding job as far as I can tell.
I see no reason to change the current arrangement, for to do so would mean certain destruction of all the relics and sites we Christians hold dear.
Take over the city? Why not, Jews built Jerusalem!

Moslems were a world power too until they got the guts kicked out of them by the Crusader knights-—Before Crusades Islam expanded, After Crusades Islam fell back. Only oil money keeps them afloat today—take that away and they are just warring tribes in the desert. England made some bad choices—but they are not finished yet.
Not quite. The Crusades, while a counter attack against the Islamic conquests immediately after the death of Muhammad, were largely ineffectual. Not only did Islam survive, it continued conquering, eventually taking Constantinople, and the entire Byzantine Empire out, invading the Balkans, and even going so far as to lay siege to Vienna. During this same period, Spain was being contested as well.
The final removal of the Islamic invaders occurred in early 1492, the same year Columbus sailed from a newly liberated Spain. Isabella hocked her jewelry for the mission for a reason, the Spanish royal treasury was almost bare, the financial costs of almost eight hundred years of war.
Islam wasn't truly broken as a major military threat until Jan Sobieski and Polish forces relieved the siege of Vienna, and the Ottoman Turks' navy was roundly defeated at Lepanto.
All these occurred well after the last Crusade was a memory...
If anyone can prove descent from the Jebusites, they could put in a claim.
A lot of countries have controlled Jerusalem over the centuries. Maybe they need to line up in chronological order. Babylonians, Persians, Ptolemies, Seleucids, Hasmoneans, Idumaeans, Romans, Byzantines, Sassanids, Arabs, Crusaders, Turks, etc. Muslims would be pretty far down the line.
