What of the Jewish claim to Arabia?

Reader comment on item: What Antidote to Radical Islam?

Submitted by Charles Martel (United States), Jul 9, 2015 at 13:08

Today, we are confronted daily by Islamist propaganda foisting Islam's claim upon Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. The Jewish presence in the local region is well supported by more than four thousand years of archeological and other evidence. Islam's claim to Jerusalem "at best" is based upon the fevered imagination of a concocted dream involving a winged donkey and a pedophile warlord. Yet, the true legitimate claim of one people against another in the vicinity remains largely ignored.

If there is a genuine territorial claim in the Middle East, it is that the Jews ought to be given back the vast tracts of Arabian land stolen from them by Muhammed and his band of 7th Century thieves. Unlike the feeble Islamic assertions regarding Jerusalem, there are multiple well documented sources to support a Jewish claim to much of Arabia.

Even the Qur'an contains numerous references to the fact that the Jews previously occupied a great deal of Arabia prior to the onslaught of Islam. Therefore, I say, first and foremost Muslims ought to return the Arabian land stolen by them from to the Jews. Only then, once the Jewish peoople have been equitably recompensed for the outrageous theft perpetrated upon them by Islam, can the energized but fanciful claims by Islam upon the tiny Jewish state be sensibly and fairly considered.
