"Jerusalem" is mentioned in the Koran....once

in response to reader comment: Mr. Sproul: maybe your friend should be outraged at what Palestinians have been doing.

Jerusalem is mentioned 814 times in 767 verses in the Bible.

Jerusalem is mentioned in the Koran once.

The "15 inconvienent truths" you provide, Dr. RJP, point to the dis-proportionate, non-sensical, irrational, based-on-nothing-but-anti-semitism agenda of the Palestinians, not to mention their ancestral, inherent, rabid greed.

Anyone who is against Israel's right to exist, without exception, displays his own anti-semitism as all arguments against Israel eventually fall flat.

Jordan is a good example to argue. It's part of historical Palestine, and over 70% of it's population is Palestinian. If the desire for a Palestinian state is the true agenda, why not make part of Jordan a Palestinian state? Because Palestinians desire a "state" alongside Israel? Why do they want that? Oh yeah, because they want to drive Israel into the sea.

It boggles the mind why anyone would choose against Israel. Anti-semitism is irrational, evil, and will be punished by God. Genisis 12:3 - "And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse".
