'God in the Quran says that God will gather the Jews in Palestine before end of time so they will be destroyed"'

Note that even Muslims admit that it is Jesus (not the brigand claiming prophet status Mohammed) who will descend--though they pervert it from there.

And if you talk of the Jews' evil deeds, how about those of Muslims (Operation Searchlight and current Darfur crisis are but two examples) just since WW2? By that logic, you Muslims should have been scrubbed in 1972.
