Psalm 2:1) Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2) The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against His Anointed (Mashiach), saying, 3) Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4) He that sits in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision. 5) Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure. 6) Yet have I set My king upon My holy hill of Zion (Jerusalem).

7) I will declare the decree: the LORD has said unto me, You are my Son (Mashiach ben David); this day have I begotten You. 8) Ask of Me, and I shall give You the heathen for Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for Your possession.

9) You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. 10) Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11) Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12) Kiss the Son (Yeshua HaMashiach), lest He be angry, and you perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him (the LORD Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob).

We read these words, not from the Quran, but from the Hebrew Holy Scriptures. If we see that in spite of all efforts to eliminate Israel, from history, from the land in 1948 to the current time by all sorts of unsuccessful Islamic and secular efforts, and if we see that the Hebrew Scriptures are getting ready for the latest fulfillment in the latest attempts against Israel, we can say from all intelligent appearances that the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob seems to have things under His control.

Tell us where in the Quran that Israel was supposed to regain their promised land and keep it against all Islamic efforts to the contrary. Sorry to break the news, but the Quran will not tell one that: only the Holy Bible will provide the truth of the existence of Israel against all odds.
