I was astonished at some Muslims' postings about their hatred of Jews after I had been posting on a Muslim site for three years. I had "friends" (I thought) there, but I quit posting after the people who ran the site blamed the Jews for every incident that ever happened to any Muslim anywhere.

I found that my questions were ignored, my postings deleted, and that only saying good things about Muslims was allowed. How did these people dare lie when the evidence showed the opposite? Because they have their own history, which is whatever they say it is. They don't think or study like the West, and besides the Quran gives permission to lie in the interests of Islam. Any wonder why they're centuries behind the West?

I think the big thing they have with Jews is jealousy handed down century after century. During the time of the Jewish kings, Jews and Arabs fought together against a common enemy. They ate and drank together. But the advent of Islam changed everything. The warrior Arab culture adopted a religion that held other religions in disdain and preached that Muslims are superior no matter what they had accomplished or not. The more I studied the history of the Jews and Jerusalem, the more I began to see that Muslims were interlopers in the Holy Land of the Jews and Christians. I don't mean to dis all Muslims, just those with intentions of gaining world domination. I think the people of Palestine would love to have peace and resume normal lives. It's their extremist leaders who sacrifice them in the name of grabbing land and wealth.

After writing emails to many Muslim groups, governments and businesses for years complaining about them, I'm now blocked (or everyone is) from their addresses. The Friends of Al Aqsa is a Muslim group based in the UK that promotes Muslim possession of Israel. I sent an email to them suggesting a scholarship conference where each side would present their evidence that they are entitled to the Holy Land. I wish the whole world would push this because then the matter would be resolved. Jews have the proof, Arab/Muslims don't.

Good news that a cache of ancient Israeli artifacts from the First Temple were discovered because of the ditch Muslims dug on the Mount to install utilities. Unforseen circumstance.
