Let's talk about who really stole what from whom

Reader comment on item: How Many Arabs and Muslims Accept Israel?

Submitted by Charles Martel (United States), Apr 8, 2016 at 00:05

As long as the world appears to wish to pound Israel with its so-called "Jewish occupation of Palestine" ad nauseam why should we not also discuss the undisputed Islamic eradication of the thousands-year long presence of Jews in Arabia by Mohammed and his merry band of proto-terrorists. The wiping out of Arabia's Jewish presence during the 7th Century is very well documented by no less authoritative source than the Qur'an, and it is equally well supported by numerous Surat and Hadith. Seems to me that when Arabia accounts for the land, blood and treasure stolen by Islam's first Muslims from Jewish inhabitants of Arabia we can perhaps proceed to a discussion about purported challenges to the past, present and future legitimacy of Jewish hegemony over the historically holiest spaces within Israel.

How is this argument not valid? More shocking, why has it seemingly never been raised before?

Good point. You are noting a permanent double standard. Only Westerners are imperialists and occupiers.
