True Muslims and Christians Must Love Israel
by Steven Shamrak
The Jewish concept of Messiah, which in Hebrew means 'anointed one', a righteous king who will be sent by God to unite people all over the world and lead the world into an age of peace and understanding, was adopted by the Christian Church and Islam.
Both religions have incorporated the Torah and teachings of Judaism as part of their theology.
It is written in the Torah and in the Old Testament, Bereishit (Genesis) - Chapter 15:18 “On that day, the Lord formed a covenant with Abram, saying, "To your seed I have given this land, from the river of Egypt until the great river, the Euphrates River.”
This verse defines quite clearly the borders of Jewish kingdom/state, which is much greater than the current land of Israel, controlled by Jews, or even the territory of the Palestine Mandate with was allocated by the League of Nations in 1920 as a Jewish state – Eretz-Israel. The Language recognised "the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine."
In spite of that, all the Christian member-states of the League of Nations tried their best to make sure that the Jewish states would not be re-born! Since it’s miraculous re-establishment and several wars with Muslim countries, Israel controls less than 18% of the Palestine Mandate.
At the same time, since 1947, the United Nations, majority members of which are mostly Christian and Muslim states, made it a tradition to denigrate and condemn Israel. They still question and reject the rights of the Jewish people to the land of our ancestors.
Even before Israel was revived, Muslim leaders and countries vigorously opposed it. They have waged several wars against Israel. To undermine the legitimacy of Israel they created, with the help of the Communist anti-Semites of the Soviet Union, a fake people - Palestinians. They have been sponsoring terrorism against Jews even before Israel was reinstated.
Islamic leaders and rulers are not ignorant and uneducated people. They must have studied or at least read the Quran once, 5:20-22:
”And (mention, O Muhammad), when Moses said to his people, “O my people, remember the favour of Allah upon you when He appointed among you prophets and made you possessors and gave you that which He had not given anyone among the worlds. O my people, enter the Holy Land which Allah (G-d) has assigned to you and do not turn back (from fighting in Allah’s cause) and (thus) become losers. They said, “O Moses, indeed within it is a people of tyrannical strength, and indeed, we will never enter it until they leave it; but if they leave it, then we will enter.”
If they are true Muslims and followers of the words of their prophet Mohamed, Muslims must obey teachings of their holy book, Quran. Otherwise, they are just another bunch of common anti-Semitic and Jew-hating religious hypocrites, like others before them.
Almost half of the world population is either Christian or Muslim.
- Why don’t we see millions or billions of them protesting the injustice, discrimination and cruelty the Jewish people and Israel have been subjected to in the past and present?
- Why don’t they stop common anti-Semitic idiots, and Israel-hating governments and organisations?
- Why are most Christians, Muslims, their leaders and governments supporting enemies of Israel?
- Why do international organizations, like the UN, deliberately and unjustifiably single out Israel for an endless string of critical resolutions?
- Why have most of the Muslim countries still not recognised Israel?
On the other hand, they might have a pathological need for hate. If not for common subject of hate – Jews, Catholics, Anglicans and Orthodox Christians would continue killing each other; Sunni and Shia would also enjoy this favourable ‘pass-time’.
NOTE: If you are offended by this article, it means that you might need to question and address your attitude toward Jewish people and the state of Israel, and your preconceived ideas about them, because I have not written it to hurt anybody.
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Fighting anti-Semitism and anti-Israel prejudice in media is a noble task. But no war has been won by defensive action only - Israel/Jews must set a clear national objective and pursue it, disregarding protests and opinions of the enemies and so-called friends.
In the past year, 56 IDF soldiers and security personnel have died serving the State of Israel, the Defense Ministry announced ahead of the country’s Remembrance Day. Another 84 IDF disabled veterans died from their disabilities over the past year. (International Israel-hating press does not care about Jewish lives.)
Secretary of State claims that Israel has no objections to a US return to UN cultural agency, UNESCO, from which Trump withdrew, over the agency’s anti-Israel bias. Blinken called on Congress to give President Joe Biden the power to waive a US law that requires an end to US funding to any international organization, such as UNESCO, that recognizes Palestine as a state.
Muslims gathering at the Temple Mount on Wednesday night for the Laylat al-Qadr events marched while calling for the massacre of Jews, as the State of Israel commenced with events marking Yom HaShoah, its national Holocaust Remembrance Day. “If this is the religious worship of the Muslims, the State of Israel should close the mountain to the ‘religious worship’ of the Muslims,” said Religious Zionism MK Ofir Sofer.
Quote of the Week:
“Our Palestinian land is from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) sea. I dare any Palestinian, any senior Palestinian official, or any Palestinian leader to reduce the Palestinian map to the West Bank and Gaza!” - Tawfiq Tirawi, a senior Fatah member – The same was said many times by Yasser Arafat and many other leaders of fake Palestinians! They did not and will not accept any peace plan.

In 1881, Arthur Penrhyn Stanley, a leading British cartographer and Dean of Westminster Abbey, reported that "in Judea it is hardly an exaggeration to say that for miles and miles there was no appearance of life or habitation".
During the Egyptian conquest (1831-1840), "there was a limited influx of some thousands of Egyptian immigrants, whom Ibrahim Pasha [the ruler of Egypt] brought in to settle the empty stretches of the country. Before them, a goodly number of Egyptians had fled Egypt, seeking to evade the military draft.
The existing population in Jaffa contained at least twenty-five different nationalities, mostly Egyptians, but also Syrians, Yemenites, Persians, Afghanis, Hindus and Baluchis.
The Arab Palestinian nationality (which was officially forged in 1964) is an entity defined by its opposition to Zionism (the Jewish national liberation movement) and not by its national aspirations.
Like a mantra, Arabs repeatedly claim that the Palestinians are a native people of Israel. The concept of a ‘Stateless Palestinian people’ is not based on fact. It is a fabrication! The following is a chronology of an ethnic makeup of so-called Palestinians and their origin.
During Ottoman Empire.
Until the Jews began returning to the Land of Israel in increasing numbers from the late 19th century, the area called Palestine was a God-forsaken backwash that was controlled by the Ottoman Empire.
From 1880-1884, the Turkish government settled Muslim Circassians refugees in the Golan to ward off Bedouin robbers. Other settlers in the area included Sudanese, Algerians, Kurds.
In 1878, an Ottoman law granted lands in Palestine to the Moslem refugees from Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Carmel region, in the Galilee, in the Plain of Sharon, and in Caesarea. The refugees were further attracted by 12-year tax exemptions and exemption from military service.
The same colonization policy was also directed toward Moslem refugees from Russia - particularly from the Crimea and the Caucasus. They were Circassians and Turkmenians - leading to their settling in Abu Gosh, near Jerusalem, and in the Golan Heights. Refugees from Algeria and Egypt were also settled in Jaffa, Gaza, Jericho and the Golan.
British Mandate: 1917-1947
In 1923, having discovered the Golan lacks oil, but that the Mosul area in northern Syria is rich in oil, the British cede the Golan to France in exchange for Mosul. At the same time the Trans-Jordan was ceded from the Palestinian mandate as well and Egypt was given control of the Sinai, British and France gain control of Suez Canal. (82% of Jewish land was sacrificed in the process!)
In 1934 alone, 30,000 Syrian Arabs from the Hauran moved across the northern frontier into Mandate Palestine, attracted by work in and around the newly built British port and the construction of other infrastructure projects. They even dubbed Haifa Um el-Amal (‘the city of work’).
The Ottoman Turks’ census (1882) recorded only 141,000 Muslims in Palestine. The British census in 1922 reported 650,000 Muslims. (Isn’t that peculiar?)
