The Qur'an is a Jewish Book

Reader comment on item: Accepting Israel as the Jewish State[: Public Opinion in Four Arab Countries]
in response to reader comment: The muslims will never accept Israel as a JEWISH STATE, they have said so, and the koran says so !

The fact that the Quran does not focus on Muhammed, Ishmael or the Arab people. Instead the Qur'an focuses primarilly on the Jewish patriarchs and prophets. The Qur'an concerns itself primarily with the history and future of the Children of Israel. Thus the primary figures of the Qur'an are figures like Abraham, Joseph, Moses and King David. In fact the primary figure of the Quran is Moshe Aveynu (Moses our father) who is mentioned more than any other individual in the Qur'an. Many Jews are surprised to learn that one entire "Surah" (chapter) of the Quran (Surah 17) is titled "The Children of Israel".
