Reader comment on item: Why Palestinians Need an Israel Victory
in response to reader comment: Q5-21:27 Did not much make sense

So far we established that Allah assigned the holy land to the Jews and al-Mufasereen (the likes of al-Tabari) come to the rescue and tell us that it must be Palestine, Damascus and Jordan!

Then Allah, via Moses, tells the Jews to enter the holy land and don't run away. Then the Jews tell Moses that the holy land is occupied by strong people and that they (the Jews) will not enter the holy land until its occupants are gone (by force)!

Now here is Q5;23 and it can be rendered as follows: (Notice the very strange syntax) Two men from those that fear Allah had been gracious upon them ادخلوا عليهم الباب (I left this untranslated because this is strange syntax and the literal meaning is: Enter (plural) upon them the door! (this has no meaning in Arabic and al-Tabari fixes this strange syntax by saying that Allah meant to say: ادخلوا عليهم ايها القوم باب مدينتهم or Enter upon them O people via the door (gate) of their city. And if you enter through (the door) then you are the winners. And depend on Allah if you are believers

In short: Allah loves fillers and this is just another filler but the idea is clear: The Jews the favorite nation of Allah (Q5:20 Q2:40 and Q2:47) are told to invade the "city" where the inhabitants of the holy land live. Allah is really telling the Jews to fight and acquire the city!

Q5:24: Can be rendered as: They (the Jews) said to Moses we will not enter it (the city) ever as long as they (the occupants of the holy land the Palestinians and Syrians and Jordanians) are sill residing in it (the city) You and your God can fight (the occupants) we are staying here (outside the holy land)

So Allah is really saying fight and expel the occupants of Allah's holy land!

Q5:25 can be rendered as: (Moses says): O my Lord I only control my self and my brother

Q5:26 can be rendered as: (Allah is not happy that the Jews do not want to enter the holy land and expel its occupants) He (Allah) said it is forbidden for you for a period of 40 years where they (the Jews) get lost on earth So don't تأس (this word has no clear meaning al-Tabari claims that it means to be sad) upon the people that are corrupted (it is very clear that this sentence has no clear meaning)

et voila: The Qur'an says that the promised land Palestine included belong to the Jews and Allah tells the Jews to take it by force and expel its occupants! It is all in black and white!

The Qur'an is a confused and confusing book!
