"The Jewish people as a whole will be its own Messiah. It will attain world domination by the dissolution of other races...and by the establishment of a world republic in which everywhere the Jews will exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this New World Order the Children of Israel...will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition..." (Karl Marx in a letter to Baruch Levy, quoted in Review de Paris, June 1, 1928, p. 574)

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.—Benjamin Franklin

Since the savage attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, any criticism of United States government's policy of interventionism in the Middle East is either stifled, branded as anti-Semitic, or implying that Americans got what they deserved. The pundits and the media seem to have a collective mindset to incite Americans into believing that America was attacked for no other reason than its success as a peace loving capitalistic nation.

There is no way justify the attack on moral grounds, but at the same time, to ignore the U.S. government's roll in attracting attacks on its civilians can only make things worse. Faith in government is just as misplaced as faith in the Church. It leads to the absurd conclusion that whatever is in the best interests of American citizens is in harmony with the best interests of American and Israeli Jewry, Christian evangelicalism and the U.S. government's foreign policy.

The historical records clearly show that wars between Jews, Christians and Muslims over Palestine and Jerusalem have been raging since biblical days with no settlement in sight. Given this long history, those who think that another war will solve this conflict are only fooling themselves. Beyond rooting out the evildoers, it's a good bet that any further escalation by the U.S. government will escalate the conflict and more innocent American lives will be destroyed and lost for a fruitless cause. It's also a good bet that the American government will exert more authority and control over its citizenry at the same time, in the name of protecting freedom.

Contrary to the censors, Americans need to have some background to the Middle East conflict before they consent to supporting this cause. Such ignorance seems calculated to steer American public support towards whatever the born-again G. W. Bush may decide. Blind support for American political power is just as irrational as faith in an invisible superman.

Starting with the Bible and supported by archeological findings, it is clear that Palestine was occupied by non-Jewish Semites long before the Jews claimed the "Promised Land," and long after. There is not even evidence that there were twelve tribes of Israel who occupy the land claimed by modern Israel. The book of Joshua is full of bloody gore on how God delivered on his promise, but there are no sources outside the Bible that verify that the whole of Palestine was conquered and occupied by Jews.

If the Book of Joshua is to believed, then it means that justification for a Jewish homeland is based on land taken by war 3,300 years ago and lost by war 2600 years ago. By that logic, Americans should give the southwest territory back to the Mexicans and the rest to the nation back to the Indians.

From the Bible to the Present

Zionism is described as the belief in the unity of the Jewish people in Palestine. Zion got its name from the hill on which the temple of Jerusalem is located.

The roots of Zionism go back to 587 BCE, when the Jews were carried off to captivity in Babylon and their prophets encouraged them to believe one day that God would allow them to return to Palestine. Known as the Babylonian exile, it is recorded in the last chapter of 2 Kings and verified by Babylonian records.

In 539 BCE the Persians captured the Babylonian Empire and permitted many to return to Jerusalem. After the Jews returned to the Holy Land, they remained Persian subjects until Persia was conquered by Alexander the Great in 330 BCE.

Strife continued when the Greek rulers attempted to enforce Greek religion and culture. The Jews resented the attempt and revolted under the leadership of the Jewish Maccabeans. For a while, from 164 to 63 BCE, the Jews had a brief period of national independence.

However in 63 BCE, the Roman general Pompey captured Jerusalem and the Jews became Roman subjects this time. The friction between the Jews and their Roman overlords continued until 70 CE, when Jerusalem was annihilated and Jews where forced to disperse from the area. What is known in Israel as the "Wailing Wall" is the only remnant of this last time when Jews lived together. A small contingent of Jews made one more attempt to capture back their land of milk and honey in 72 CE, but the attempt proved suicidal. In brief, these are the historical claims upon which Zionists claim Israel rightly belongs to the Jews.

In the long stretch of history preceding the twentieth century, the Roman empire became Christianized under the emperor Constantine (306-337) who establish the new capital of Constantinople in what is now called Istanbul in Turkey.

From 150 to 650 CE, the Roman Empire split into three distinct cultures and religions: the Latin Christian West, the Muslim world in the Middle east, and in the far east was the Byzantium empire where Greek Orthodox Christianity split from papal rule.

In 638 Muslim armies invaded Palestine and captured Jerusalem where they remained for 1400 years. Palestine and Jerusalem became holy to the Muslims because its founder Muhammad was believed to ascend to heaven from the area of Solomon's temple. From the time of his death in 632, Islam emerged as a major military power.

Beginning in 1095 and ending late in the 13th century, the Christian Crusaders invaded Palestine seven times to take Jerusalem because it was where Jesus Christ was crucified. By 1099 the crusaders had control over the Middle east and Jerusalem. However, Christian territories acquired during the First Crusade were gradually lost over the next 200 years. Jerusalem was recaptured by Muslim forces in 1187, and the last Christian stronghold in the Holy Land fell in 1291.

In 1453, Constantinople was sieged by Ottoman sultans and became what is known as the Ottoman Empire. Islam was still the dominant religion.

In the twentieth century, World War I, ended control by the Ottomans, and Palestine came under British rule. To secure help from the Zionists, the British issued the Balfour Declaration in 1917, which endorsed Palestine as a national home for Jewish people all over the world. During the period of British mandate (1922-1948), the Jewish population grew from 50,000 to 600,000 people-the Palestinians numbered 1,300,000.

In 1939 the British terminated their support for Zionism, but it was the Holocaust that secured western sympathy for a Jewish state. By the time British abandoned Palestine in May 14th, 1948, American Jews convinced President Harry Truman to support the Jewish declaration of independence for the new state of Israel.

Israel's Arab neighbors took up the Palestinian cause and invaded Israel immediately after independence was declared, in a war known as the Arab-Israeli War of 1948 to 1949. The war produced 780,000 Palestinian refugees who were forced out to make way for Jewish immigrants. Israel has been involved in four major wars since then—a clash with Egypt during the Suez Crisis in 1956, the Six-Day War in 1967, the Arab-Israeli War of 1973, and Israel's 1982 invasion of Lebanon. Christian evangelicals support occupation by the Jews because they believe it is a necessary step for the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Whatever anti-Semitism died down in western cultures, it had to increase many fold in the Middle East. After losing four wars, it's a good guess that the idea of terrorism took hold after Muslims saw the success of guerilla warfare by the North Vietnamese against the U.S.. If we follow the path of terrorist attacks, they started against Israel, migrated to U.S. embassies and military installations, and finally to the American shores. When American politicians screw up, as they usually do, it's American citizens who pay the price.


It would be stupid to blame U.S. foreign policy as a cause of the terrorist attack as if the U.S. was an accomplice, but certainly it has endangered American safety and freedom. To put it bluntly, the American government's self appointed role as the world policeman is pissing a lot of people off. The United States has become the world's bully.

We have a situation similar to what we have seen in the former Rhodesia, South Africa and Yugoslavia, where there is one ethnic minority ruling over a hostile majority of another ethnicity. In South Africa it was called apartheid, which I think is aptly applies Israeli policies against Palestinians. For as long as the Israeli government imposes discriminatory restrictions on Palestinian residents, the tensions are bound to continue.

Americans who frown upon racial discrimination at home have every reason to protest American political support for its continuance in Israel. If the Israelis were to treat Palestinians equally and the Palestinians were to regain political power, so be it. That's what democracy is for. Second, any form of military domination will only heighten Muslim aggression towards the West. Beyond hunting down the evildoers, the U.S. should get the hell out of the Middle East. But don't hold your breath.

READ THE FOLLOWING PASSAGES FROM THE BIBLE AS IT HAS IMPLICATIONS ON THE WAR AGAINST TERROR/ISLAM and the claim of Israel that god gave them the land. If the child is an infant than the Judeo-Christian version becomes null and void and we are wasting our time and resources i.e. we could save trillions of dollars and create a more peaceful world rather than fighting against Islam the religion of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them all).


Please note this is not a competition between faiths but an attempt to decipher fact from fiction.

Genesis 21:14 Contemporary English version se below link


Early the next morning Abraham gave Hagar an animal skin full of water and some bread. Then he put the boy on her shoulder and sent them away.

And Hagar bore Abram a son; and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bore, Ish’mael. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ish’mael to Abram.

Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

At Genesis 22 Abraham had only 2 sons others came later. The Quran mentions that it was Ishmael that was sacrificed hence the reference in genesis 22:2 your only son can only mean someone has substituted Ishmael names for Isaac!!

NOT ROMAN NUMERALS (I, II, III,IV,V,VI,VII,VIII,IX,X) NB no concept of zero in roman numerals.

100 years old – 86 years old = 14 ADD 3 YEARS FOR ISSAC’S WEANING


Carefully read several times the above passage and then tell me the mental picture you get between the mother child interactions what is the age of the child. If the mental picture is that of a 17 year old child being carried on the shoulder of his mother, being physically placed in the bush, crying like a baby, mother having to give him water to drink, than the Islamic viewpoint is null and void. Why is there no verbal communications between mother and (17 YEAR OLD) child?

GENESIS: 21:14 - 21
So Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water, and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, along with the (17 YEAR OLD) child, and sent her away. And she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-Sheba. When the water in the skin was gone, she cast the (17 YEAR OLD) child under one of the bushes. Then she went, and sat down over against him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot; for she said, “Let me not look upon the death of the (17 YEAR OLD) child.” And as she sat over against him, the (17 YEAR OLD) child lifted up his voice and wept. And God heard the voice of the (17 YEAR OLD) lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, and said to her, “What troubles you, Hagar? Fear not; for God has heard the voice of the (17 YEAR OLD) lad where he is. Arise, lift up the (17 YEAR OLD) lad, and hold him fast with your hand; for I will make him a great nation.” Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the skin with water, and gave the (17 YEAR OLD) lad a drink. And God was with the (17 YEAR OLD) lad, and he grew up; he lived in the wilderness, and became an expert with the bow. He lived in the wilderness of Paran; and his mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt.

The age of Ishmael at this stage is crucial to the Abrahamic faiths. If he is 17 than the JUDEO/CHRISTIAN point of view about the Abrahamic covenant is correct. This has devastating theological consequences of unimaginable proportions.

This makes the conflict between Ishmael and Isaac and there descendants a work of fiction. I would strongly suggest it is clear cut case of racial discrimination and nothing to do with god almighty. The scribes have deliberately tried to make Isaac the only son and legitimate heir to the throne of Abraham??

Please can you rationally explain this anomaly?

I have asked many persons including my nephews and nieces - unbiased minds with no religious backgrounds but with reasonable command of the English language about this passage and they all agree that the child in the passage is an infant.

For background info on the future religion of mankind see the following websites:














HOLY QURAN CHAPTER 37 verses 101 - 122

101. So We gave him the good news of a boy ready to suffer and forbear.

102. Then, when (the son) reached (the age of) (serious) work with him, he said: "O my son! I see in vision that I offer thee in sacrifice: Now see what is thy view!" (The son) said: "O my father! Do as thou art commanded: thou will find me, if Allah so wills one practising Patience and Constancy!"

103. So when they had both submitted their wills (to Allah., and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice),

104. We called out to him "O Abraham!

105. "Thou hast already fulfilled the vision!" - thus indeed do We reward those who do right.

106. For this was obviously a trial-

107. And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice:

108. And We left (this blessing) for him among generations (to come) in later times:

109. "Peace and salutation to Abraham!"

110. Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.

111. For he was one of our believing Servants.

112. And We gave him the good news of Isaac - a prophet,- one of the Righteous.

113. We blessed him and Isaac: but of their progeny are (some) that do right, and (some) that obviously do wrong, to their own souls.

114. Again (of old) We bestowed Our favour on Moses and Aaron,

115. And We delivered them and their people from (their) Great Calamity;

116. And We helped them, so they overcame (their troubles);

117. And We gave them the Book which helps to make things clear;

118. And We guided them to the Straight Way.

119. And We left (this blessing) for them among generations (to come) in later times:

120. "Peace and salutation to Moses and Aaron!"

121. Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.

122. For they were two of our believing Servants.

Therefore the claim that god gave the land to Israel is destroyed without the need of any WMD’s.

Volume 4, Book 55, Number 583:

Narrated Ibn Abbas:

The first lady to use a girdle was the mother of Ishmael. She used a girdle so that she might hide her tracks from Sarah. Abraham brought her and her son Ishmael while she was suckling him, to a place near the Ka'ba under a tree on the spot of Zam-zam, at the highest place in the mosque. During those days there was nobody in Mecca, nor was there any water So he made them sit over there and placed near them a leather bag containing some dates, and a small water-skin containing some water, and set out homeward. Ishmael's mother followed him saying, "O Abraham! Where are you going, leaving us in this valley where there is no person whose company we may enjoy, nor is there anything (to enjoy)?" She repeated that to him many times, but he did not look back at her Then she asked him, "Has Allah ordered you to do so?" He said, "Yes." She said, "Then He will not neglect us," and returned while Abraham proceeded onwards, and on reaching the Thaniya where they could not see him, he faced the Ka'ba, and raising both hands, invoked Allah saying the following prayers:
'O our Lord! I have made some of my offspring dwell in a valley without cultivation, by Your Sacred House (Kaba at Mecca) in order, O our Lord, that they may offer prayer perfectly. So fill some hearts among men with love towards them, and (O Allah) provide them with fruits, so that they may give thanks.' (14.37) Ishmael's mother went on suckling Ishmael and drinking from the water (she had).
When the water in the water-skin had all been used up, she became thirsty and her child also became thirsty. She started looking at him (i.e. Ishmael) tossing in agony; She left him, for she could not endure looking at him, and found that the mountain of Safa was the nearest mountain to her on that land. She stood on it and started looking at the valley keenly so that she might see somebody, but she could not see anybody. Then she descended from Safa and when she reached the valley, she tucked up her robe and ran in the valley like a person in distress and trouble, till she crossed the valley and reached the Marwa mountain where she stood and started looking, expecting to see somebody, but she could not see anybody. She repeated that (running between Safa and Marwa) seven times."
The Prophet said, "This is the source of the tradition of the walking of people between them (i.e. Safa and Marwa). When she reached the Marwa (for the last time) she heard a voice and she asked herself to be quiet and listened attentively. She heard the voice again and said, 'O, (whoever you may be)! You have made me hear your voice; have you got something to help me?" And behold! She saw an angel at the place of Zam-zam, digging the earth with his heel (or his wing), till water flowed from that place. She started to make something like a basin around it, using her hand in this way, and started filling her water-skin with water with her hands, and the water was flowing out after she had scooped some of it."
The Prophet added, "May Allah bestow Mercy on Ishmael's mother! Had she let the Zam-zam (flow without trying to control it) (or had she not scooped from that water) (to fill her water-skin), Zam-zam would have been a stream flowing on the surface of the earth." The Prophet further added, "Then she drank (water) and suckled her child. The angel said to her, 'Don't be afraid of being neglected, for this is the House of Allah which will be built by this boy and his father, and Allah never neglects His people.' The House (i.e. Kaba) at that time was on a high place resembling a hillock, and when torrents came, they flowed to its right and left. She lived in that way till some people from the tribe of Jurhum or a family from Jurhum passed by her and her child, as they (i.e. the Jurhum people) were coming through the way of Kada'. They landed in the lower part of Mecca where they saw a bird that had the habit of flying around water and not leaving it. They said, 'This bird must be flying around water, though we know that there is no water in this valley.' They sent one or two messengers who discovered the source of water, and returned to inform them of the water. So, they all came (towards the water)." The Prophet added, "Ishmael's mother was sitting near the water. They asked her, 'Do you allow us to stay with you?" She replied, 'Yes, but you will have no right to possess the water.' They agreed to that." The Prophet further said, "Ishmael's mother was pleased with the whole situation as she used to love to enjoy the company of the people. So, they settled there, and later on they sent for their families who came and settled with them so that some families became permanent residents there. The child (i.e. Ishmael) grew up and learnt Arabic from them and (his virtues) caused them to love and admire him as he grew up, and when he reached the age of puberty they made him marry a woman from amongst them.
