Boris on Islam

You can catch the first episode of Boris Johnson’s two part programme ‘After Rome’ here.

Was I the only viewer to notice that when he was on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem Boris said it was the place where Jesus “is supposed to have driven out the money-changers”, but that it was the place where Muhammed “ascended into heaven”? No suggestion that the second is a belief held by some people, rather than an historical fact.
