Why is there no mention of Mecca by non-Muslim Historians before the Death of Mohammad?

Update: Creativity4humans, why do you TRY to answer my question when you have blocked me from answering yours?
Update 2: Flt, thanks for your bibical sources but passages from the Bible are not considered History.
One more thing, why do you quote the Bible so correctly when Islam consider the Bible as contaminated?
Update 3: Fatima, while I like Raza Aslam and his book No God but God, I do not support his theory that Mecca was known by a different name.
Update 4: Yes Retajl, I truly think that it's upserd to think that there was no Mecca before Mohammad; Historians just can't find it.
