Honesty is the beginnning of peace

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
in response to reader comment: Re: I have question for whole islamic world

Submitted by Rashid hussain (Australia), (United States), Dec 30, 2008 at 17:00

Rashid, regardless of what the Muslims believe (that names of countries are unimportant)...the question still remains:

Upon what Holy Spiritual Authority does the whole body of Islam demand that the name Palestine be established in place of the name Israel.

Islam's sole supreme authority (the Koran) mentions the name Israel many times, but never the name Palestine.

If Islam's sole supreme authority thought it important enough to mention the name Israel - then why does Islam demand the destruction of the name?......and most importantly, for one that Islam's sole supreme authority never even mentioned?

If the body of Islam can not give Holy Support from their Koran, to justify the establishment of the name Palestine in place of the name Israel - then all of Islam will be without excuse in the judgment.

Those who have their homework, know that the Koran teaches....If a body has even a little evil in it....then the whole body is defiled.

There is no Holy Justification for the name Palestine. None exists. But there is plenty of Holy Justification for the name Israel. And nationality has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with these facts.

Peace does though....and so does The Judgment.

Submitting....
