in response to reader comment: What do most Muslims think about Israel?

Submitted by K.Ahmed (United States), Jun 4, 2008 at 09:04

Krista, actually I have already responded to sts with http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/130780

my reponse was covering a couple of statements that he has made - I have said many times there is much that people can disagree upon without generalizing over the top - the history of the Holy Lands is full of peoples who have lived there and been driven from there - If one wishes to use a biblical history the land was not empty when the Judaic people came there - biblically it was a rather bloody takeover - but these historical events are of no great importance in trying to solve the problem of Israel and Palestine -

I have said many times Israel has a right to exist - many Muslims would disagree - many would agree - but the people who matter are the ones who's everyday lives are touched by the violence, Muslim, Jew and Christian. As I said to sTs if the argument is over religion no solution will be found - Hope I did this link thing right. It should be entitled "this is not right".
