The Shocking Plain Truth About Mohammed and the Dome of the Rock

CBS won't tell you, ABC won't tell you, not even Fox News will tell you but the Plain Truth about "The Third Holiest Site in Islam" for Muslims is a 20th century HOAX! According to historians, Jerusalem's role as "The Third Holiest Site in Islam" in mainstream Islamic writings does not precede the 1930s. In fact the word Jerusalem NEVER appears in the Koran! Never! Mohammed was never there. Ther isn't one account of him being there until 1930! Why 1930? Well we all know that is about the time when many Jews fleeing Nazi Germany was starting to move back to the land of Israel and a move went out to try and prevent this from happening by inventing the story. Yes, the Muslims invaded Jerusalem and conquered it, built the Dome of the Rock, but they did so to commemorate the story of Abraham and not Mohamed....



In the days of the Prophet Mohammad, who died in 632 of the Common Era, Jerusalem was a Christian city within the Byzantine Empire. Jerusalem was captured by Khalif Omar only in 638, six years after the Prophet Mohamed's death. Throughout all this time there were only churches in Jerusalem, and a church stood on the Temple Mount, called the Church of Saint Mary of Justinian, built in the Byzantine architectural style. And the Prophet Mohamed probably didn't ascend to heaven from the roof of a Christian Church!

Muslims in the 1930s knew that nationalist slogans alone would not succeed in uniting the masses against arriving Jewish refugees. They turned the struggle into a religious conflict. Muslims began calling  for a holy war. The battle cry was simple and comprehensive: "Down with the Infidels!" From the time Herbert Samuel appointed Haj Amin to the position of Mufti, Haj Amin worked vigorously to raise Jerusalem's status as an Islamic holy center. He renovated the mosques on the Temple Mount, while conducting an unceasing campaign regarding the imminent Jewish "threat" to Moslem holy sites.

The Moslem "claim" to Jerusalem is based on what is written in the Koran, which although Jerusalem is not mentioned even once, nevertheless talks (in Sura 17:1) of the "Furthest Mosque": "Glory be unto Allah who did take his servant for a journey at night from the Sacred Mosque to the Furthest Mosque." But is there any foundation to the Moslem argument that this "Furthest Mosque" (Al-Masujidi al-Aksa) refers to what is today called the Aksa Mosque in Jerusalem? The answer is, none whatsoever.

The Aksa Mosque was built 20 years after the Dome of the Rock, which was built in 691-692 by Khalif Abd El Malik. The name "Omar Mosque" is therefore a misnomer. In or around 711, or about 80 years after the Prophet Mohammed died, Malik's son, Abd El-Wahd - who ruled from 705-715 - reconstructed the destroyed Christian-Byzantine Church of St. Mary and converted it into a mosque. He left the structure as it was, a typical Byzantine "basilica" structure with a row of pillars on either side of the rectangular "ship" in the center. All he added was an onion-like dome on top of the building to make it look like a mosque. He then named it El-Aksa, so it would sound like the one mentioned in the Koran.

Therefore it is historically clear that Prophet Mohammed could never have had this mosque in mind when he compiled the Koran, since it did not exist for another three generations after his death. Rather, as many scholars long ago established, Mohammed intended the mosque in Medina as El Aksa, the "Furthest Mosque." This is another instance where religious reproof and instruction is being twisted for political gains. It is also clear that our modern day media will never tell you this!
