    So if Mecca is the holiest city what would the opposite be?
    Newark? Slough? Prague?

    Like in the Koran there's an actual passage telling Muslims to never ever go to these places.

    I mean why else do you think the Ottomans didn't go beyond Vienna?? It wasn't because of the military defeat, no sir, common myth, it was because you know where was right over the hills.

    Hmm.. there is no "abhorred" place in the world which a muslim is prohibited in visiting or living in. If that was so, why would there be muslims living in every country in the world?

    And the prophet did speak on the Jerseyites.

    "You will find yourselves face to face one day with great false tanned spiny headed men of the village of New'ark, they will be known to you as "Quaidos", fear them for they are not of god or man."

    The invasion and occupation of Sicily and southern Italy by the Arab Caliphates was an attempt to spare the world of a coming calamity.

    But the Normans pushed the Arabs out, heedless to the warnings of what had to be stopped...

    "False tanned" XD

    The nice thing about Islam is that everyone is bent on authenticity. If someone says that the Prophet said so-and-so, and it's not a well known quotation, they'll be rapid fire slapped in the face with "What's the reference?!" and if it's proven to be a fabricated quotation, it's completely disregarded.

    It's great cuz there's no room for deviation. That way, when a new sect pops up, it's clearly distinguishable from the true teachings.

    EDIT: Bleh, i've only studied in depth up to the History of Andalus. Was about to begin a course on Ottoman empire but didn't work out. Gotta get on that soon.

    A Protestation is starting sooner Here, And the chance for The police and Military army to intervene Is High as Heaven. I will Go there and See How things will be going...

    By the way, Jerk Disease, There is now way that passage is real, simply Cause Muslims don't fear even death, they are told to spread the religion everywhere, there is no Prohibited places. and The being that is Neither god nor man Are called "dijal".
    And Why would there be an opposit City ? we don't need to hate....IMO the opposit place would be the "Bermuda Triangle" its exactly at the opposite location of Mecca :p

    Sigh, can't you recognize an obvious joke from this close. He wrote that himself.

    Now here a hadith sahih, that could be beneficial to you: "If thou name finishes with three numbers, pleased be thou to stay silent for thus this is wiser." rawah, no Ice.
