History: Muslim Siege Of Jerusalem Part 1 by EazyMoh(m): 10:00pm On Jan 03
Note: The below is verbatim copy from Wikipedia. This thread is aimed at educating people about how Muslims come to be a part of the city's history and make up, and how impossible and unfair it is to try to annihilate from a city they have been a part of, developed and maintained for 1400 years. It is also noteworthy that it Muslims more than other people that gave the inhabitants the freedom to practice their faith and law the way they liked. It was Muslim leadership that allowed and even encouraged the Jews exiled by oppressive regimes to return to the city on many occasions. Both times that Muslims captured the were bloodless, and they end with guaranteed religious freedom and tolerance to the extent that even non-Muslims yearned for the return to Muslim after the city was pillaged by the barbaric crusaders.

Intro
The Siege of Jerusalem was part of a military conflict which took place in the year 637 between the Byzantine Empire and the Rashidun Caliphate. It began when the Rashidun army, under the command of Abu Ubaidah, besieged Jerusalem in November 636. After six months, the Patriarch Sophronius agreed to surrender, on condition that he submit only to the Rashidun caliph. In April 637, Caliph Umar traveled to Jerusalem in person to receive the submission of the city. The Patriarch thus surrendered to him.
Background
Jerusalem was an important city of the Byzantine province of Palestina Prima. Just 23 years prior to the Muslim conquest, in 614, it fell to an invading Sassanid army under Shahrbaraz during the last of the Byzantine-Sassanid Wars. The Persians looted the city, and are said to have massacred its 90,000 Christian inhabitants.[2] As part of the looting, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre was destroyed and the True Cross captured and taken to Ctesiphon as a battle-captured holy relic. The Cross was later returned to Jerusalem by Emperor Heraclius after his final victory against the Persians in 628. It was believed that the Jews, who were persecuted in their Roman-controlled homeland, had aided the Persians.[3]

After the death of Muhammad in 632, Muslim leadership passed to Caliph Abu Bakr following a series of campaigns known as the Ridda Wars. Once Bakr's sovereignty over Arabia had been secured, he initiated a war of conquest in the east by invading Iraq, then a province of the Sassanid Persian Empire; while on the western front, his armies invaded the Byzantine Empire.[4]

In 634, Abu Bakr died and was succeeded by Umar, who continued his own war of conquest.[5] In May 636, Emperor Heraclius launched a major expedition to regain the lost territory, but his army was defeated decisively at the Battle of Yarmouk in August 636. Thereafter, Abu Ubaidah, the Muslim commander-in-chief of the Rashidun army in Syria, held a council of war in early October 636 to discuss future plans. Opinions of objectives varied between the coastal city of Caesarea and Jerusalem. Abu Ubaidah could see the importance of both these cities, which had resisted all Muslim attempts at capture. Unable to decide on the matter, he wrote to Caliph Umar for instructions. In his reply, the caliph ordered them to capture the latter. Accordingly, Abu Ubaidah marched towards Jerusalem from Jabiya, with Khalid ibn Walid and his mobile guard leading the advance. The Muslims arrived at Jerusalem around early November, and the Byzantine garrison withdrew into the fortified city.
The Siege
Jerusalem had been well-fortified after Heraclius recaptured it from the Persians.[6] After the Byzantine defeat at Yarmouk, the Patriarch of Jerusalem Sophronius repaired its defenses.[7] The Muslims had so far not attempted any siege of the city. However, since 634, Saracen forces had the potential to threaten all routes to the city. Although it was not encircled, it had been in a state of siege since the Muslims captured the neighboring forts of Pella and Bosra. After the Battle of Yarmouk, the city was severed from the rest of Syria, and was presumably being prepared for a siege that seemed inevitable.[6] When the Muslim army reached Jericho, Sophronius collected all the holy relics including the True Cross, and secretly sent them to the coast, to be taken to Constantinople.[7] The Muslim troops besieged the city some time in November 636. Instead of relentless assaults on the city,a[›] they decided to press on with the siege until the Byzantines ran short of supplies and a bloodless surrender could be negotiated.[8]

Although details of the siege were not recorded,b[›] it appeared to be bloodless.[9] The Byzantine garrison could not expect any help from the humbled regime of Heraclius. After a siege of four months, Sophronius offered to surrender the city and pay a jizya (tribute), on condition that the caliph came to Jerusalem to sign the pact and accept the surrender.[10] It is said that when Sophronius's terms became known to the Muslims, Shurahbil ibn Hassana, one of the Muslim commanders, suggested that instead of waiting for the caliph to come all the way from Madinah, Khalid ibn Walid should be sent forward as the caliph, as he was very similar in appearance to Umar.[11] The subterfuge did not work. Possibly, Khalid was too famous in Syria, or there may have been Christian Arabs in the city who had visited Madinah and had seen both Umar and Khalid, remembering the differences. Consequently, the Patriarch of Jerusalem refused to negotiate. When Khalid reported the failure of this mission, Abu Ubaidah wrote to caliph Umar about the situation, and invited him to come to Jerusalem to accept the surrender of the city.
Surrender
In early April 637, Umar arrived in Palestine and went first to Jabiya,[13] where he was received by Abu Ubaidah, Khalid, and Yazid, who had traveled with an escort to receive him. Amr was left as commander of the besieging Muslim army.[14]

Upon Umar's arrival in Jerusalem, a pact known as The Umariyya Covenant was composed. It surrendered the city and gave guarantees of civil and religious liberty to Christians in exchange for jizya. It was signed by caliph Umar on behalf of the Muslims, and witnessed by Khalid, Amr, Abdur Rahman bin Awf, and Muawiyah. In late April 637, Jerusalem was officially surrendered to the caliph.[15] For the first time, after almost 500 years of oppressive Roman rule, Jews were once again allowed to live and worship inside Jerusalem.[16]

It has been recorded in the annals of Muslim chronicles, that at the time of the Zuhr prayers, Sophronius invited Umar to pray in the rebuilt Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Umar declined, fearing that accepting the invitation might endanger the church's status as a Christian temple, and that Muslims might break the treaty and turn the temple into a mosque.[8] After staying for ten days in Jerusalem, the caliph returned to Medina.

Nobody is saying Jerusalem belongs to the Muslims alone, but to make accessible and conducive for Christians Jews an Muslims alike. Just like how the Muslim leadership had been doing for 1400 years; and more importantly how UN had instructed as guidelines, during the creation of the state of Israel in 1946.
Now compare the above scenario with European arrival to the Americas only 600years ago.
Re: History: Muslim Siege Of Jerusalem Part 1 by Pierohandsome: 10:20pm On Jan 03
So how does Jerusalem belong to the muslims? Jerusalem belonged to the Jews which muslims besieged and took over the city frm the original owners and now ,the owners collected it back and announced the place their capital and they started shouting that it belongs to them.

Oga if you know how history works you should know that you cant claim something lost for centuries. If that's the rule even Jews don't own Jerusalem. And besides Muslims never claimed the sole ownership of the city even as far back as when they took the city for the first time.
The white Americans arrived there less than 600 years ago, how ridiculous do you think it'd sound if the native Americans now try to claim their ancestral sites that have now being converted to night clubs and Walmart?

when the Muslims were attacking the Arab tribe, Rome didn't do anything and was not interested in the Arabs.

it was when they attack Jerusalem, they killed the Jews on sabbath day. the Rome set up the crusader to retook Jerusalem back because they saw it as the holy city and embarrassing in the hands of Muslims. when the crusader retook the town they where not interested to stay there and only stay for few time before they left.

by that time the Jews were scattered allover Europe many was not interested to go back for fear of their life's. the land because deserted before the philistine settled there. when they were crisis in Europe the UK brought Jews back to Israel.

it can be claimed if there is a boundary proximity. If i choose not to claim my property lost years ago it is my choice, if i stil choose to claim it is my right

Even UN 1946 that literally created Israel that Jerusalem should belong to neither Israel nor the Arabs.

Do you have a receipt? Most of the lands were voluntarily sold, and others simply converted other religions thereby making them appear non Jewish.
By the way the most important claim the Zionists have to the land is the birth certificate issued to Israel in 1946. But they violate the conditions of the resolutions serially, blatantly and arrogantly. Instead they kill civilians at will, and have been illegally occupying lands outside what was given to them.
If there is any justice in the world this shouldn't be allowed nor tolerated.
Anyway the aim of this thread is to highlight the civilized and just manner Muslims treated people of the city when they had the upper hand even as far back as the 7th century.

Historically did the Palestinians ever have a nation under which they ruled themselves as a national entity or are talking about Arab settlers who are now in recent times desiring a place of their own?

Upon say I wasted time to copy the above, you still wouldn't read.
The siege is clearly explained to be bloodless yet you are claiming they killed Jews.
In the Aftermath of each Muslim take over of the city both Christians and Jews always troop back to the city to enjoy religious freedom and liberty under Muslim rule. Especially after th destruction by the crusaders.

Oga do you know when Jerusalem was conquered by the Muslims and when it was conquered by the crusaders with the centuries that lay between?
Do you think Jerusalem was a Jewish city or even had Jewish inhabitants upon the Muslim conquest?

That is it go through history, nowhere did the Arabs ever robbed people of their lands. They bought and paid for everything and they also have receipts.
So you can't come back to demand for something your forefathers willingly sold.

there was no historical fact that the land in which Palestines occupied in Jerusalem was bought, those land were forcefully taken over by them, even the history u posted depicted that fact. Jews were killed in hundreds, siege laid on Jerusalem and hijacked the place Centuries ago. Isrealites were displaced frm their land by this maurading and radical islamists reduced a whole nation of Isreal into a non existent entity until a small portion was later aportioned to them again as a nation by United Nations in 1948.

Now the fowl has come home to roost, they stood like gallant men and fought the whole Arab nations and finished them in 6 days, now they harnessed their stregnth and annexed their boundary and recovered all that the arabs stole frm them and the whole world now started protesting. Whn the whole arab nation invaded that small Isreali nation, why didnt the UN condemn it and sanction the intruders? If Isreal didnt rise to finish off all of them , Isreal as a people and nation would have been wiped off and their entire land possessed and nobody wil say anything.
As of 70 -80 years ago, the Jews were left with only 650 people. Who killed the rest of them? The Arab nations!
Now that the parole changed gear, everybody is shouting. Isreal had been Long oppressed until now b4 nw.
They can cry all they want, Isreal is ready for the so-called religion of peace but oppressive in Nature, that was the same thing they did in Turkey ,killed the whole christian and overtook the whole nation and turned it to an islamic caliphate today.
Jerusalem today is Isreali capital ,and nothing can reverse it

Repeating a lie hundred times doesn't make it truth.
Show where and when Muslims attacked Jerusalem and killed one person! In fact except for creation of Israel by UN, Muslim arrival in Jerusalem is the best thing that ever happened to the Jews!
A passage is there above where the caliph declined to patsy in a church because he didn't want Muslims to want to forcefully convert it to a Mosque.
So in your argument now native Americans/red Indians have the right to start annexing lands now owned by white Americans?

u are the one spreading lies. Go back to history and tell me any nation whr islam is that was invaded peacefully? Tel that to children. How did the muslims take over Jerusalem without killing, is it possible to take over another man's territory without over powering the occupants? The same thing boko haram is doing in north east today jst to establish a caliphate is same thing muslims have been doing since the birth of islam. Tell me any nation muslims invaded peacefully? Islam is a violent religion that dnt understand the meaning of peace, That was how North and some states in West was invaded by Usman danfodio but couldnt conquer East and South ,that is why those regions remain Christians.

51 years ago, Turkey was a christian nation, but today they are 99.9 Muslims after killing the whole christians.

So hw did they took over Jerusalem peacefully? U are talking to children abi? U think if Isreal can be conquered they wouldnt have started invading them again, they knw who is who and that is why they hired u to distort fact to win simpathy. That is the worst they can do-shout.

Let the whole Muslim nation cough near that territory, and see what Isreal wil do to u guys

Dispute the fact , this is what is happening presently. Maybe in another century, the facts wil also be distorted and telling our great grand children that boko haram, isis, talibans etc were establishing caliphates peacefully.

You got it wrong! They weren't there to claim your land, thru were only there to evangelize the message of Islam. If you like you accept otherwise you don't.
In the beginning Caliphs even forbid the conquering zamu slim forces from acquiring land, it was during Caliph Uthman that the Muslims were allowed to purchase land and property from the locals.
So your analogy is wrong.

Mr Arab slave master, the race that started the wholesale conquest of other races are the Arabs under the Islamic khalifah. This is a well documented historical facts. The khalifa, after the death of Mohammed, took genocide and plundering to the next level, all sanctioned by allahh in the Qur'an and the hadith. The entire north Africa were not Arabs, but were conquered by the Arabs, and today Arabs remain their masters. Syrians, Persians and Sudanese are not Arabs but today they have technically been arabized as a result of years of war and enslavement.

Hitler is a learner when compared to Muslim Arab invaders. Hitler was defeated but the khalifas won most of their plundering wars. Ask the Spaniards how Spain was when the moors ruled Spain. How did the Islamic moors conquered Spain? This is my second semester test for you in my course HIST 313.

Do your research well so that you don't come here disgrace yourself.

EazyMoh:

You got it wrong! They weren't there to claim your land, thru were only there to evangelize the message of Islam. If you like you accept otherwise you don't.
In the beginning Caliphs even forbid the conquering zamu slim forces from acquiring land, it was during Caliph Uthman that the Muslims were allowed to purchase land and property from the locals.
So your analogy is wrong.
So the khalifa were distributing sweet and chocolate at every territory they entered? Even kindergarten children will not accept your claim.

The hadith below betray your falsehood:

SAHIH BUKHARI, VOL 4 CHAPTER 88:

Narrated Ibn 'Umar: The Prophet said, "MY LIVELIHOOD IS UNDER THE SHADE OF MY SPEAR, FROM WAR BOOTY, AND HE WHO DISOBEYS MY ORDERS WILL BE HUMILIATED BY PAYING JIZYA TAX."

Muslims have been living on other people's sweat from time immemorial. What is the occupation of Allah's apostle and his sahabas? What is the means of livelihood of the khalifas who went about dislodging people of their lands and properties?

@ OP...taking your history from.Wikipedia is where you got it wrong..Anybody even a drunk can write history as it suit him and put it in Wikipedia..

If you are basing your argument on what you read from wikipedia..then I'm sorry for you...my advice to you is go back and do proper search on history as regard Jerusalem and all her wars...
Peace..!!!
