Hagar and origin, thanks to Sara

Reader comment on item: Uncovering Early Islam
in response to reader comment: The root word of Hagar, and it seems that Ishmael was not part of the Covenant...

Thank you, Sara, for posting the root origins of "Hagar" etc. because it is through these Semitic language origins, especially Hebrew, that we will find truth. Funny how the gers and gars have both been considered wanderers, but only the gers are the children of the covenant promise through Isaac. The conception of the promised child Isaac and the allotted land of God to these descendants was after, not before, the circumcision of Abram. The Ishmaelites were allotted their own boundaries, but because,as you stated, they are dragged out or take flight, they have and are in the process of possessing that which has not been designated to them in the form of Israel, America, and western Europe. Unfortunately for them, according to the book of Revelations, when they are aiding in the pursuit of "the woman" the earth will open and swallow them up via God's divine protection of His chosen.
