Donald O, Propaganda or History

Reader comment on item: Israel Shuns Victory
in response to reader comment: it's not really their 'home'

Donald O, if you are a Muslim then you are obviously entitled to make ridiculous statements such as "that it was God's destiny" that this little piece of land return to people that occupied it thousands of years ago. We who monitor Daniel Pipes' web site have come to accept that the truth in so far as Muslims are concerned is only what Muslims perceive or desire to be the truth. History and facts are irrelevant. If on the other hand you are not a Muslim, then you should have the common sense to study some history before you make ignorant and outlandish statements that are becoming rather common to your posts.

And yes, Israel or Palestine is really their home. The facts are that the Jews have occupied the land referred to as either Palestine or Israel for over 3 thousand years of recorded history. Sure they have been invaded and ruled over by many different people and empires. In 625 BC, they were invaded and ruled by the Babylonians, then the Medo-Persians in 558 BC, followed by the Greco-Macedonians in 333 BC, the Roman's in 31 BC and in 638 AD they were invaded and occupied by the Muslims. The Jews did not invade Israel or Palestine, as their forefathers have lived there continuously from time immemorial. It is true that beginning in 1890 AD, many Jews began returning to Israel, but they never displaced anyone. In fact the Muslims followed them because as Jews began settling in barren unpopulated Israel they began creating industry, agriculture and economic opportunities. The reason that the Muslims want to displace the Jews is simply because they believe that the entire world belongs to Allah and Muhammad and the Jews have rebelled against Allah from the beginning and need to be taught a lesson and indeed submit to Allah rather than the G-d they have worshipped for thousands of years. Of course the stubborn Jews refuse to acknowledge or accept this foolishness and so they should. If you are a Muslim, I apologize for this rant as I would understand that you are not interested in facts or recorded history as the Qur'an is sufficient in all respects. By the way, I'm not a Jew, but rather a student of history.
