Even the qur’an says Israel belongs to the Jews
From their own so-called holy book, the qur’an, the words of allah simply state that the Land of Israel has always belonged to, and always will belong to the Jews. Today’s belief held by some that Israel does not belong to the Jewish people has no basis in islam. In the qur’an 3:26 it states that no person, people or religious community can claim a permanent right of possession over any territory. It says the Earth belongs exclusively to God, and He is free to entrust sovereignty over land to whomever He likes for whatever time period that He chooses, and as for Israel, God (allah) gave Israel to the Jews and the Jews alone.
From the qur’an 17:104: “And We (allah) said thereafter to the Children of Israel (the Jews) “Dwell securely in the land (of promise)…”
However, many people still erroneously believe that the fight to eliminate Israel is an ancient feud, long established between Jews against mu*lims; nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the qur’an clearly tells the followers of islam that allah gave the land of Israel to the Jews.
As per the qur’an, ‘Night Journey,’ chapter 17:100-104: “To Moses We [allah] gave nine clear signs. Ask the Israelites how he [Moses] first appeared amongst them. Pharoah said to him: ‘Moses, I can see that you are bewitched.’ ‘You know full well,’ he [Moses] replied, ‘that none but the Lord of the heavens and the earth has revealed these visible signs. Pharoah, you are doomed.'”
“Pharoah sought to scare them [the Israelites] out of the land [of Israel]: but We [Allah] drowned him [Pharoah] together with all who were with him. Then We [Allah] said to the Israelites: ‘Dwell in this land [the Land of Israel]. When the promise of the hereafter [End of Days] comes to be fulfilled, We [Allah] shall assemble you [the Israelites] all together [in
the Land of Israel].”
“We [Allah] have revealed the Qur’an with the truth, and with the truth it has come down. We have sent you [Muhammed] forth only to proclaim good news and to give warning.”
As further proof, the qur’an states God orders the Jews into Israel in Sura 5:20-21: [5:20] Recalling that Moses said to his people (the Jews), “O my people, remember GOD’s blessings upon you: He appointed prophets from among you, made you kings, and granted you what He never granted any other people.” What this references is that God granted the Jews a homeland (Israel) something he had never granted to any people before.
[5:21] “O my people, enter the holy land (Israel) that GOD has decreed for you, and do not rebel, lest you become losers.”
And lastly, in case there are any doubts remaining about whether the qur’an speaks about the Jews’ right to live in the land of Israel, see Sura 10:93-94:
“We settled the Children of Israel in a beautiful dwelling-place…..If thou wert in doubt as to what We have revealed unto thee, then ask those who have been reading the Book from before thee.”
These quotes taken directly from the qur’an should make it clear to all mu*lims, and anyone else for that matter, that Israel not only belongs to the Jews, but that Israel is a Jewish state by all accounts. The modern battle of islam vs the Jews, and their right to the land of Israel, finds many roadblocks in the qur’an itself. Furthermore, both the Holy Bible and the qur’an say that the rights to the Land of Israel does not depend on conquest and colonization, but that the right flows from the will of God Himself.
In the qur’an 5:20-21, it specifically states the words by which Moses ordered the Israelites to conquer the Land:
“And [remember] when Moses said to his people: ‘O my people, call in remembrance the favor of God unto you, when he produced prophets among you, made you kings, and gave to you what He had not given to any other among the peoples. O my people, enter the Holy Land which God has assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiously, for then will ye be overthrown, to your own ruin.'”
And for those mu*lims who still insist that Israel does not belong to the Jews either yesterday, today, or tomorrow, the qur’an directly references the return of the Jews to the Land of Israel before the Last Judgment. Again from the qur’an 17:104: “And thereafter We [allah] said to the Children of Israel: ‘Dwell securely in the Promised Land. And when the last warning will come to pass, we will gather you together in a mingled crowd.'”
If some still insist in thinking in modern terms and not religious terms, one can say Israel belongs to the Jews not because the Holy Bible or the qur’an say so but because the Jewish people have fought, died and won the land they saw as their homeland by their blood over many, many years and many, many battles. The Turks call this ‘the right of blood.’ And there is yet another reason why the Land of Israel belongs to the Jews, a quite modern interpretation at that……when Palestine officially became the State of Israel in 1948, every nation in the world recognized it to be so by international agreements. The first time Arab nations signed a treaty with the State of Israel, they recognized this fact, and this is ‘the right of recognition.’
So whether by religious historical documentation or by modern secular thinking, the land of Israel belongs only to the Jewish people…..it always has and it always will.
