The DNA issue

Reader comment on item: Israel's Arabs, Living a Paradox
in response to reader comment: Judaising the Arabs

Submitted by DEBORAH THE JUDGE (United States), Apr 1, 2012 at 01:17

The shared DNA of "Palestinian Arabs" and Jews proves only one thing. That the Ishmaelites and Jews shared the male progenitor being Abraham. The same goes with the offspring of Esau. This does not make them all Jews by birthright , with the exception of Jacob alone. The Khazars are actually Edomites, not Jews. God forbade His people to take foreign races of women for wives, for it would corrupt these men with their false idols. Whereas these women would not be easily converted to following the Torah. As far as converting the Arabs to Judaism or Christianity, one cannot lean upon the premise of a genetic tie. This is a free will affair whereby the one true living God calls, and one either accepts or rejects Him. The knowledge comes by hearing. And hearing from the Word of God.
