Al Aqsa Mosque

From Speakeasy


Part of Al-Haram al-Qudsi al-Sharif, a complex of sites which includes the more famous Dome of the Rock. Masjid-al-Aqsa is one of the holiest sites in Islam because, it is where, according to Muslims, Abraham (the patriarch of the Abrahamic faiths) established his covenant with God and spread the teaching of monotheism. Muslims respect all the Prophets revered by Judaism and Christianity and their venerated places are also central to the ethos of Islam. Solomon was a prophet and revered by Muslims.

Beyond Babylon apparently wanted to blow it up.
