So then, what did you expect? You are correct in that you are not willing to concede a simple position of fact, that in previous exchanges, you continue to find reasons why a Biblical exposition or a Biblically based view are not worth your time. Why then, the question is asked, do you argue something based on a premise you do not acknowledge? So your huh (?) makes as much sense as __ __ + __.

It is the same set of circumstances that supposed Christians, the very ones you point to who do not have a factual basis of faith in Biblical truth, argue points of the Holy Bible which they do not believe. But it is not limited to Christianity.

In Judaism, there are works that take the simple beauty of the truth if Isaiah in referring to the Anointed One and try to argue that it does not represent the fact of Yeshua HaMashiach be the fulfillment of that prophetical situation.

In Islam, there the arguments that split Shia and Sunni – I have yet to have someone explain satisfactorily from where does the al-Madhi appear; and to whom should a practicing Muslim give allegiance when reporting to 'allah?

So let us then ask the true basic question buried in your post: if one denies that Israel is accorded the right to the land, then how does the Ishmaelite make the same claim?

Ishmaelites' have always been a race derived from Abraham, just as the Israeli's. But only the Israeli's were given nation status by a separate declaration from the Ishmaelites'.

In the final analysis, the joke that is made in anti-Semitic tones should be considered passé; for I suspect Hamas and Hizbollah do not consider that fact they have not been able to dislodge Israel from her promised position in the Middle East too much of a joking matter. Israel is not there because of fallacy, as you are supposing; so I would think that another reason is the real reason why Israel remains, and will continue to do so for an extremely extended period of time.

That's what the Bible says; and there is not yet a man that will make it happen differently?
