The BBC’s One-Sided Take on Jerusalem


In the wake of Donald Trump’s recent statement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the BBC decided to ask Jews and Muslims what Jerusalem means to them.

Just kidding. Only one side was asked the question.

British Muslims on Jerusalem

Why British Muslims care about Jerusalem.

Not only who was questioned is revealing, but also how they answered, like:

“I kind of know more abut Syria. I don’t really know what’s going in Jerusalem”

Refreshingly honest!

“The Almighty has referred to this particular land directly or indirectly around 70 times in the scripture”

Jerusalem is not mentioned even once in the Quran! So must be really indirectly

“It was the first, [I mean] the direction of prayer was Jerusalem, the first direction of prayer. [As opposed to Mecca].”

So what? Now they face Mecca with their tushies towards Jerusalem.
