"As for the other empires, determine in truth which exist in their original form today and answer your own question."

My Answer : Tell me which empire has existed till the time of Bible ? Even the Biblical kingdom of David and Solomon do not exist today. You said that those empires of men who oppose the WORD of LORD do not exist for long. Now it is your turn to show at least one empire which has been exisiting in its original form since the time that empire accepted the WORD of LORD.

'Palestinian' Muslims and Christians are not Biblically entitle to call themselves 'Chosen people of God' in the same way that Almighty God refers to the descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It is just plain not there.

My ANswer : Can you kindly elaborate what is exactly meant by the "descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob" ? How can you prove that the Palestinian Muslim and Christians are not the descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob ? And if the Arab Muslims and Christians (who are sons of the land) are not "descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob" then how can Russia-born "Jews" can be considered "descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob" ? Surely Ibrahim , Ishaq and Yaqub(Peace be upon them) were not born in Russia right so how could their descendants end up in Russia ?
