Why Al-Aqsa Mosque is mentioned as "Jerusalem, Israel" This Magazine is suppose to be a Muslim Magazine, and we don't consider Jerusalem to be the part of Israeli Occupation!!

Great slideshow! Just a couple things - I wish we could control the speed of the slideshow - it goes too fast! Also, I'm a bit disappointed you didn't include any of the mosques in Sarajevo. They may not be as big as the other mosques here, but they are more beautiful than many of them, such as the Lyon mosque, which I didn't think was attractive at all :-(
