Sohail, if you believe that the kingdom of God was taken from the Jews and given to the Muslims, than I really have no more to say. I can no more disprove your belief than you could my statement if I told you the moon was made of green cheese. If you wish to humor me, tell me which Muslim nation is now the kingdom of God.

And to show you that I'm not completely ignorant when it comes to understanding the Bible, let explain Genesis 16:12 for you. Your comments are below.
In Genesis 16:11-12, they inserted a cheap name-calling "wild ass" for Ishmael, while the original scripts in the King James Version Bible called him "wild man":

My King James reads as follows:
Gen 16:12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.
Zondervan NIV
He will be a wild donkey of a man....
Modern Language Bible
He will become a wild-ass of a man....
Living Bible
This son of your will be a wild one fee and untamed as a wild ass....
Revised Standard Bible
He shall be a wild ass of a man....
Moffat Translation
He shall be a wild-ass of a man....
Good News Bible
But your son shall live like a wild donkey....
New American Standard Bible
And he shall be a wild donkey of a man....

And now an explanation:
The word "wild" comes from the Hebrew word, "pereh" and it can mean, "running wild, onager, or wild ass".

Submitting....
