Wow way to take this quote out of context

Reader comment on item: New York Sun Columnist Weighs in on Creation of State of Israel
in response to reader comment: Even the Quran endorses Israel

Submitted by Informed (United States), Sep 6, 2009 at 01:40

You claim to know the facts but you're mistaken. This quote is referring to the time when Jews lived in "Israel" before the Prophet (pbuh) came. They inhabited the area, and were given the area by God, when they were following Moses. This quote refers to that time, when the Jews were faithful to god and his prophet. What you don't understand is not everything in the Qur'an is intended for our time, but rather a confirmation of the past, and to teach of history.
Thank you.
