The Muslim leaders are beginning to think.

Reader comment on item: Recognizing Israel as the Jewish State: Statements, Actions, Analyses

Submitted by Lynn (United States), Oct 2, 2009 at 08:09

The Muslim leaders are beginning to think that it would be better to have freedom of religion, or freedom from religion, or no religion at all rather than acknowledge that Israel was established as a Jewish State.

Better to call oneself an Arab, an Egyptian, a Jordanian, an Afghan, a Turk, a Saudi, a Kuwaiti, a Libyan, a Moroccan, a Yemen and on and on rather than identify themselves as a Muslim. Even with all these countries that have the state religion of Islam, it does not matter because it is Israel that matters to them, and the existence of Israel and their covenant with Hashem, makes all the Islamic Countries seem inadequate in comparison. It looms so large in their eyes that they see nothing else. The Temple Mount is the tallest mountain in the world to them, the Jewish Faith a challenge.

Mecca, Medina means nothing without Jerusalem and it is not that they want it to be a beacon of light to the world, no, they want it to be a symbol of the defeat of the Jewish People.

Strange.
