Since the Jewish people have turned barren desert land into flourishing agricultural fields and gardens, they should be entitled to all the land developed in Israel, according to Muhammad's decree. Here is what Islam teaches in that regard:

"The prophet (peace be upon him) said: 'If anyone brings barren land into cultivation, it belongs to him.' (Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 19, Number 3068: Narrated Urwah) and;

'I testify that the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) decided that the land is the land of Allah and the servants the servants of Allah. If anyone brings barren land into cultivation, he has more right to it. This tradition has been transmitted to us from the Prophet (peace be upon him) by those who transmitted the traditions about prayer from him.'" (Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 19, Number 3070: Narrated Urwah)

If Muslims really abide by Muhammad's teaching, they should accept the fact that the Jewish people have more right and are entitled to the desert land that they have brought into agricultural fruition in Israel.
