We forget that Moslems "cannot" give up land

Reader comment on item: Arguing over "The Way to Peace: Israeli Victory, Palestinian Defeat"

Submitted by Audrey Travis, Apr 16, 2017 at 23:33

An inherent part of Islam is that once land has been ruled by Moslems, or once a Moslem has laid down his prayer rug to pray, that land is considered consecrated to Islam in perpetuity. It cannot be relinquished. According to Islam, if a peace treaty must be signed, it is only temporary until such time as there are enough resources to resume the fight for the land. Therefore, education towards peaceful coexistence is only a temporary measure. Islam itself is the problem.

Daniel Pipes replies:

"Temporary" can last a long time. Muslim control over Sicily ended in 1091.
