Jerusalem never had an "Islamic identity"

Antichrist Nation Of Turkey Says Israel Must Accept Islam

At a meeting in Ankara this week, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Ahmet DavutoÄŸlu sounded a bit like a diplomatic hostage taker issuing the ‘do what we say and nobody gets hurt’ line when talking about the capita of Israel. In much the same way that Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf egregiously stated that acts of terror would likely be committed if the mosque’s construction was prevented, Davutoglu suggested that the Israeli capital must make decisions based on the interests of Islam or there would be consequences.Contrasting that stance with positions held by Saudi Arabia, for example are extremely hypocritical.Davutoglu made the comments at the United Nation’s Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People. The Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) – a Saudi Prince named Iyad bin Amin Madani – was in attendance.

“It is necessary for all of us to support Palestinians and to protect this cultural heritage. No one can act to destroy Jerusalem’s Islamic identity,” DavutoÄŸlu said…

“Jerusalem is an issue for all of humanity, all Muslims and Christians. No one can take unilateral decisions and implement them there. Taking unilateral decisions means putting dynamite in peace in the Middle East. Jerusalem is our qibla [direction faced by Muslims during prayer]. Without taking care of the Jerusalem issue, there will be no peace in the Middle East,” DavutoÄŸlu repeated.

As Robert Spencer points out, Jerusalem does not have any “Islamic identity” because there is no historical evidence that Muhammad was ever actually in Jerusalem and the al-Aqsa mosque Muslims say the Qur’an refers to wasn’t even built at the time the Qur’an was written.

All of this again brings back a recurring inconsistency with Islam. In Muslim countries, there is no desire to protect the ‘cultural heritage’ of non-Muslims, particularly in places like Saudi Arabia, where Madani is from. On the contrary, Muslim controlled countries seek to subjugate, murder, and eradicate all non-Muslims.

The most recent example making the news is in Nigeria. Muslim terrorists in the northern part of that country continue to destroy churches and terrorize Christians.

Isi Liebler provides an introduction to the inimitable Marc Schneier, the rabbi to the stars in the financial firmament who, according to the website of his very own Hampton Synagogue, has “since 1990.. led our congregation to extraordinary and unparalleled heights.” This man, this wonder-worker, this world-peace-maker, this “trailblazer in the field of Muslim-Jewish relations,” this profound student of religions of peace, this Marc Schneier, the uppest-market schnorrer of them all, the grandest Rabbi of the Hamptons, East and West, this venerable Hamptonover Rebbe, who during the winter serves as the “Guest Rabbi of the New Synagogue of Palm Beach,” this man who was “rated number 37 of the top 50 most influential American rabbis by Newsweek magazine in 2007,” this “appointee to the Executive Steering Committee of the Multi-Religious Campaign Against Anti-Muslim Bigotry in the United States (2010),” this co-author, with Imam Shamsi Ali, of The Sons of Abraham: A Candid Conversation about the Issues That Divide and Unite Jews and Muslims, can be read about, in Liebler’s latest in a series of indispensable dismemberments –  here.

And for another view of works and days of the Rabbi of the Hampton Synagogue, one that  Marc Schneier himself must have supplied , and no doubt hopes you will read, and then be so impressed by, that you will not feel the need to read about him, or his five wives (seriatim, please note), or anything else about him outside the confines of that site’s puffer-fishery, or fishy puffery, go here. Just to compare. Just to contrast.,
