Ahmad Zafire, for the sake of accuracy.....

Reader comment on item: What Jewish Ties to Jerusalem?
in response to reader comment: now we are getting somewhere (true believer)

Ahmad Zafire, your quotations from the Bible are very commendable, only they are not accurate. For the sake of accuracy, I would like to point out to you that the Jews/Israelites per definition are only and exclusively the descendants of Jacob (Israel), who was the grandson of Abraham. Jacob had a twin brother Esau, and both were the sons of Isaac. Esau's descendants were the Edomites to whom, according to our tradition, most of the European Christian nations are related. As you can see, being Jacob brother's (Esau's) descendant doesn't make somebody Jewish. Therefore the descendants of Ishmael, our "cousins" are even farther from the Jewish blood lineage.

But all this really means nothing as long as you are a decent, God fearing person. For that you do not have to be Jewish. You can as well be a decent Muslim or a decent Christian.

The real and big problem we are facing today is that, as it looks now, the Muslims are worshipping a "God" who's only wish is to Islamize the whole World, and to that end he sanctifies terrorism, violence, and murder of anybody who doesn't accept Muslim domination. This is the really sad part of the story!
