There is a Jewish People since we, Jews, religious or secular, say so!

Reader comment on item: Accepting Israel as the Jewish State[: Public Opinion in Four Arab Countries]
in response to reader comment: State of the Jewish People or Jewish Religion?

Submitted by Isaac Haskiya (Denmark), May 12, 2010 at 02:35

We said so for more than 3000 years. There are Muslims because some people said so some 1400 years ago. We are not questioning the existence of Muslims and we do not allow anybody to question our existence. Questioning has its limits and its rationale comes to an end when absurdity, grotesque and blind hostility enter the discussion.

What do the following terms mean? Ehl-i Kitab, Ben -i Israil, Hazret-i Ibrahim, Hazret-i Ishak, Hazret-i Musa, Hazret-i Dawoud, Hazret-i Suleyman, Hazret-i Yunus, among others. These terms exist in the Kuran or in its commentaries. What about the Jewish tribes of Mecca and Medina? Were they not persecuted because they were Jews, as a people and as being the followers of Judaism? So the Tewrat, parts of which were discovered at Qumran and dated 2000 years back was written to propagate the ideas of Zionism that was born in mid 1800.

I see no further need to argue your statement. If denial were an argument then Earth would be flat and Djinns would roam the deserts of Arabia.
