Remembering Why Abraham's Promise Through Isaac and Jacob is Still in Effect

Reader comment on item: Claiming Jerusalem is in the Koran
in response to reader comment: Jews and Other Semetic people

One of the principle reasons there is confusion about Israel's claim to its heritage of the land is featured in this response as one of the more civil lines of irrational thinking. It comes from taking a Biblical based line of reasoning and subverting it to a rationale that defies the Biblical truth of the circumstances and tries replacing it with a humanist one. While at this moment in time there are various claims to the land of Israel, only the Israeli's are going to make their claim stick. They'll not do it on their own, but there is rest in the matter of fact that as Israel did get its existence re-established, they will be the eventual inheritors as promised to their forebears. Can we say the same for the Moabites and Ammonites?
