What does the
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 scriptures.
Moses 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 the Jews' title to the
Holy Land. Therefore the title still stands, and Muslim anti-Zionists
when the Sacred Months have passed, kill the disbelievers wherever
you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for
them each and every ambush. But if they repent and observe the Islamic
lifestyle, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft Forgiving,
Most Merciful.” - Does this sound like a peaceful religion
"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.
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 Muslims.
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."
"Woe to those that deal in fraud"
