ISLAMIC SCHOLAR ROBERT SPENCER ARGUED TO THE EXACT CONTRARY

Reader comment on item: Can the Koran Solve Israel's Political Impasse?

Submitted by VLADDI (Canada), Apr 22, 2021 at 15:43

You seem to have forgotten that The Middle East Quarterly commissioned two essays presenting different views of the Qur'an and its passages dealing with the Holy Land and Jews. The first author, Robert Spencer, argues that Islamic law has not recognized and will never recognize Jewish rights to this territory. In a second essay, Muhammad Al-Hussaini, a Muslim scholar, understands the text of the Qur'an to award the Holy Land to the Jews for all time, and he holds that Muslims can be convinced of this interpretation.

Not only did I not forget it but I referenced Al-Hussaini's article in my own.
