People assume that
the Koran (Q'aran - Muslim holy scriptures) has anti-Israel
passages. While there is no doubt some level of anti-Jewish
sentiment in the Koran, there are many passages that are actually in
support of a Jewish state of Israel! The following are eleven
passages showing the support for a Jewish state in the Muslim holy
case could even be made that Israel's victory over the Arabs in the 1948
war was a judgement by Allah against the Arabs for their apostasy in
opposing the Zionists. This would be their just reward for
transgressing Sura 2:190, which says, "Fight in the way of Allah
against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities."
is quoted as telling the Jews to "enter into the Holy Land which
Allah has assigned to you". While Mohammed later condemns the
Jews for their sins and their refusal to accept his message, he never says
that, as punishment, Allah has revoked our title to the Holy Land.
Therefore the title still stands, and Muslim anti-Zionists are apostates.
"If ye punish, then punish with the like of that
wherewith ye were afflicted." Yet Ariel Sharon's nonviolent, if
provocative, visit to the Temple Mount was met with rioting,
including the use of firebombs and AK-47's.
"And We [Allah] gave (clear) warning to the children
of Israel in the Book, that twice would they do mischief on the earth and
be elated with mighty arrogance (and twice would they be punished)!"
The succeeding verses tell us that the punishment referred to was
banishment from the land. But "twice" means twice, not three
times; hence the Jews, having been banished from the land once by the
Babylonians and a second time by Rome, will never again be banished from
the land. According to the Qur'an, Israel is an eternal nation.
Moreover, "twice would they do mischief on the earth" means
twice, not three times; hence the Jews will never again do mischief on the
earth. In particular, the Jews cannot bear moral responsibility for the
Palestinian refugee problem.
Palestinians deny that there ever was a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. But
Sura 17:7 records the destruction of the First Temple by Babylon and the
Second Temple by Rome, and Mohammed never contests the Bible's claim that
the Temples were in Jerusalem.
The Jews' return from 19 centuries of exile is actually the fulfillment of
Islamic prophecy. Sura 17:104 says that
'And we said to the
Children of Israel afterwards, "Go live into this land. When the
final prophecy comes to pass, we will summon you all in one group."'
Moreover, Sura 60:9 forbids aiding the enemies of the Muslim people.
Contrast this with the Palestinians' continued support of Saddam Hussein,
whose hands are red with the blood of Iranian, Kurdish, and Kuwaiti
"Woe to those that deal in fraud"; yet Yasir
Arafat reneged on his promise to guard Joseph's Tomb in Nablus after the
Israeli troops withdrew.
