FLAME (“Facts and Logic About the Middle East”) is a group devoted to truth about Israel in the world. A recent article it sponsored in the U.S. News and World Report contained a number of items important for the Bible believer.

Jerusalem was never regarded as “a holy city”: by Islam until modern times, especially after the Six-Day War Israel gained over the Arabs.

When Jerusalem was in Moslem hands during Mohammed’s lifetime a mosque, The Dome of the Rock was ordered built. Israel today allows Moslem control in and around the mosque in our day.

Jerusalem, is most definitely not a “Moslem holy city”. It is never mentioned in the Koran. The Scriptures, on the other hand, speak of Jerusalem no less than 1,030 times!
