The bogus religious claim that muslimes have to Jerusalem, established as the capital of the Jews 3000 years ago and 1500+ years before muhammad was even born and islime invented by him [Jerusalem appears 800 times in the Hebrew Bible; zero times in the Quran], is a "vision" muhammad had that he flew to Jerusalem overnight on a winged donkey complete with a woman's head and peacock's tail. Muhammad's own people in Mecca laughed at him as a total charlatan when he presented himself as a "prophet", called "Crazed Poet" by the meccans, and in a desperate attempt to create some special powers that would accord him some respect, he fabricated the fairy tale of his night journey to Jerusalem. Of course, the only mode of travel was camel, but, that would have taken months. When told of his overnight journey to Jerusalem, muhammad's own people in Mecca laughed so hard, they eventually threw him out which forced him to relocate his bogus belief system to Medina where the more ignorant bedouin arabs fell for his nonsense hook, line and sinker...with the promise, of course, of those virgins in paradise if they die for him. This is a rendering of "al-buraq" the flying donkey that is the basis for muhammad's fictional flight to Jerusalem and the rocky foundation for muslimes' claim to Jerusalem which muhammad never really set foot in. Hey, don't laugh, the donkey flew on oats, not gas The bogus islimic claim to Jerusalem is really reflected in muslimes pointing their asses to Jerusalem and that supposedly "sacred" dome of the rock while facing mecca in prayer.
