If the situation was reversed, would Muslims permit Jews to pray in their mosques? 

I dont see how there should be a problem with Jews and Christians in Mosques because theyre not polytheists, but understandings for some have gone so far astray so i wouldnt expect the favour to be returned.

Examples such as Muslims inviting non-Muslims to their mosques (1) or deciding to pray with Jews (2), or inviting Jewish neighbours for Iftar (3) leave me optimistic that if the situation was reversed most, if not all, would want to welcome non-Muslims or Jews for that matter. The new generation has a different perspective and worldly view of such affairs.

Is the following view Islamic?

Some mosques use the following verse, and forbid non-Muslims from entering the mosque. 

”Only those shall maintain Allah's mosques, who believe in Allah and Last Day, and establish prayer and give zakat, and fear no one except Allah. They, hopefully, will be among the guided.” (9:18)

Is there any tradition/hadith on this issue? Can the above verse be used to ban non-Muslims from mosques? 

 

Here's an example of one of those mosques:

Sayyed al-Sistani's view -

Question: Is it permissible for the people of Ahlul Kitãb and other non-Muslims to enter the mosques (masjid) and other Islamic places of worship [like husayniyya or imambargah which are not masjid]? And is it necessarily for us to enforce the hijãb on those [non-Muslim women] who do not observe hijãb and allow them to enter [the mosque or places of worship], if it is permissible?

 

Answer: Based on obligatory precaution, it is not permissible for them [i.e., non-Muslims] to enter themosque (masjid). As for their entering the places of worship, etc, there is no problem in it. If their entry [in imambargah or a husayniyya or a center] without hijãb is considered as a sign of disrespect, hijãb should be enforced on the [non-Muslim] women.

And you may find different rulings for this by the fuqaha, for example those fuqaha who regard Ahlul Kitab as najis are almost certainly going to rule that they're not allowed in the Mosque. Sayyed al-Sistani's opinion is only on precaution, others may strictly not allow it, but others might allow it.

What is Sistani's justification for his verdict? 

In other words, based on what evidence did he come up with this is rule?
