POLITICALLY INCORRECT SOLUTION FOR MUSLIM STRIFE
1) Mo-ham-mad declared that the Kaaba is a sacred house and a testament to Allah.
YUSUFALI 5:97 translation: Allah made the Ka'ba, the Sacred House, an asylum of security for men, as also the Sacred Months, the animals for offerings, and the garlands that mark them: That ye may know that Allah hath knowledge of what is in the heavens and on earth and that Allah is well acquainted with all things.
PICKTHAL 5:97 translation: Allah hath appointed the Ka'bah, the Sacred House, a standard for mankind, and the Sacred Month and the offerings and the garlands. That is so that ye may know that Allah knoweth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, and that Allah is Knower of all things.
SHAKIR 5:97 translation: Allah has made the Kaaba, the sacred house, a maintenance for the people, and the sacred month and the offerings and the sacrificial animals with garlands; this is that you may know that Allah knows whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, and that Allah is the Knower of all things.
2) The Kaaba is the most sacred shrine in Islam.
2002 World Book Encyclopedia: Kaaba, pronounced KAH buh, also spelled Caaba, is the most sacred shrine of Islam. It is a small, cube-shaped building with a flat roof near the center of the Great Mosque in Mecca. Muslims everywhere turn their faces toward the Kaaba when they pray. The famous Black Stone, enclosed in a silver ring, rests in the eastern corner of the Kaaba. According to Muslim tradition, the Kaaba was originally built by Abraham and Ishmael (also called Ibrahim and Isma'il), and the Black Stone was given to Abraham by the angel Gabriel. The Kaaba is the chief goal of the annual pilgrimage of Muslims. Pilgrims run and walk around it seven times, praying and reciting verses from the Quran. They touch or kiss the stone to end the ceremony.
3) The politically incorrect solution for Islamic strife is to have the Kaaba destroyed.
