Christians need to learn more about Islam—a lot more. The religion has more than 1.6 billion adherents. Some of them—but not all—have engaged in terrible acts of violence against Christians in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia. The main perpetrators in the murder of more than 2 million Christians in the Anatolian Peninsula between 1915 and 1922 were Islamic. Muslim-majority countries have also been significant sources of anti-Jewish invective in the modern world. In fact, leaders of these countries have tried to destroy the Jewish state on a number of occasions since its creation in 1948.
When Muslims question or even deny the existence of the Temples on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, they willfully disregard their own holy book, the Quran, and Muslim tradition. By doing so, they cast doubt upon the very sources which underpin their own claim to the site.
UNESCO denies any connection between the Temple Mount and Judaism, but the massive, and growing, archaeological record begs to differ. Here, with photos, are just a few of its proofs.
