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.
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”
“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.
