Reader comment on item: Why Palestinian Delusions Persist
in response to reader comment: Islamic Doctrine and the Palestinians

1. Koran 9:29 is about Jews and Christians. The fact that it is also about Christians does not in any way mitigate the call to make war against the Jews.

2. The only "Zionist elements" in the Koran refer to Allah giving the ancient land of Israel to the ancient Israelites. Everything else in the Koran about Jews is filled with Jew-hatred, commands to war against the Jews, and that Allah cursed the Jews. That reference to Allah giving the land of Israel to the Israelites does not in the least mitigate Allah's other Jew-hating commands which abrogated the few, less hateful commands. With almost zero exceptions, the entire Islamic religious establishment view the Jews as enemies of Allah to be subjugated to Islamic law or killed.
