since you consider the Jews the conquerers of a land settled by others, then you obivously do not accept the arguments of Palestinians laying claim to the area. Since a history maven such as yourself is aware that in the year 641 ad the Arab armies conquered Israel, changed to Palestine by the Romans. Please note that Jerusalem was taken and occupied three years after Baghdad and a two years after Damascus. It is poignant to note in this time of what Eldar calls the darkness, that jerusalem was never the big prize for Islam, since it contains no Islamic Holy sites. The Al Aqsa mosque was built on the Jewish Holy of Holies simply to make the area Moslem. Just as Islam built in Ayyouthya India, on the site of what the Hindus consider the birthplace of the god Ram, or the turning of the Aya Sophia Byzantine church in Istanbul into a mosque. I find it interesting to read those who consider Jewish "mythology" useless tripe, seem to cling to Moslem "mythology" as truth.
