"Thousands of martyrs" for Jerusalem

Less than two weeks ago, the security advisor to Palestinian Authority President Abu Mazen said,
"But let me tell you, Jerusalem needs thousands of martyrs. If we live to see the day, and you become the leaders of the future, mark my words: It is impossible for Jerusalem to be restored to us without thousands of martyrs" (MEMRI).
Just what is Islam's claim on Jerusalem? Muhammad woke up one morning and told Hind, the woman he had been sleeping with (not his wife) that overnight the angel Gabriel had taken him to Jerusalem (1,400 miles round trip from Medina) where he met with Jesus, Moses and Abraham before ascending to heaven.

According to Ibn Ishaq, a devout Muslim who wrote the earliest biography of Muhammad, Hind said that he may have gone spiritually but his body was with her all night:
“The apostle went on no night journey except while he was in my house. He slept that night in my house. He prayed the final night prayer, then he slept and we slept. A little before dawn the apostle woke us, and when we prayed the dawn prayer he said…I prayed with you last evening prayer in the valley as you saw. Then I went to Jerusalem and prayed there” (Life of Muhammad by Ibn Ishaq, 183-184).
Muhammad's favorite wife, A'isha later confirmed this story, i.e. that Muhammad never went anywhere.

There you have it!. For this Jews are supposed to give up Jerusalem which had been a Jewish city for a thousand years before Jesus was born (and Jesus was born 600 years before Muhammad)! For this Muslims are willing to see thousands of people slaughtered!

Why is it that Barack Obama and the American Left just cannot seem to understand that so many Muslims in the Middle East do not want peace, they want Jerusalem and the rest of Israel. All negotiations are merely ploys to gain this ultimate goal.
