A muslim would pray towards Earth, and then a more specific direction of where Mecca is on the globe. If it's located on the opposite side of the
Earth, to which the spaceship crew can't see, then it will still be towards that direction. It will always be towards the Kabaa.
You should understand your analogy wont fit correctly when directing it towards solving the Middle East conflict. Taking a toy away from a child is
one thing, but taking away someone's home and land is another. Would your example also work over food sources? Consider two impoverished nations are
fighting over a limited supply of food source. Do you solve their fighting by taking away their food? No.
The difference between taking a kid's toy and taking a population's land away from them is that the kid can survive without a toy, but the people
wont. The kid mearly wants a toy, but the people need a land. If you take away their land, then it's not solving the problem, it's only adding to
it. When their land is taken away, they will have to live elsewhere, meaning they live on someone else's land, creating the same problem once
