Abraham was a Hebrew to Whom Jerusalem was Promised in the Tanach - Not the Quran

Reader comment on item: Claiming Jerusalem is in the Koran
in response to reader comment: Deuteronomy 9:6

As the time approaches for the implications in current historical context of Moses' song to be made plain for all to see in the attempt to displace Israel, the 'Palestinian, nay the entirety of Islam have come to a reality that they have yet to overcome-that the promises of Almighty God are still true now even as they were made plain to the ancients of Moses' time, of the time of Yeshua's first visit to Jerusalem centuries before Islam's entry into the world, and of every time since. They try still to obtain by subterfuge any semblance of creditability, however false, to any claim they can to Jerusalem because they know to rule the world, even as a caliphate led ummah, it must come from Jerusalem.

In the real-time context, it is what PM Netanyahu is being forced to contemplate as the 'Palestinian' cause wends its way in the United Nations and what Iran is contemplating to advance their agenda in a nuclear way. Jerusalem is not in the Quran for a very good reason – Almighty G-d made His promises to the children of Abraham through Isaac only; for it was Isaac that was offered on Mt. Moriah, just as it was testified to in the Hebrew traditions that Islam can never erase.
