Islam and Israel an Introduction
The linking of the nation of Israel
with the emergence of Islam as a major world
religion, encompassing over 20% of the earth’s
population is just a coincidence to some.
However, for those who know Bible Prophecy there
is no such thing. Central to the scriptures is
God’s prophetic plan for the nation of Israel
and the Jewish people.
To understand these amazing
circumstances, we need to comprehend the
emergence of the nation of Israel in 1948, a
recent event. Prior to this period, the last
time an independent Jewish Kingdom existed was
during the Maccabean period,
which lasted about 100-years (164-63 B.C.), over
In A.D. 70, the Roman Empire, which
invaded the land of Judah over 100-years
earlier, had enough of the rebellions of
Jerusalem; they destroyed the city and the
Temple. According to the Jewish historian
Jews died in the destruction of Jerusalem.
Another Jewish rebellion, the Bar Kochba
A.D. 132-135, resulted in the death of another
580,000 Jews under Roman might, during the reign
of the Emperor Hadrian. The city of Jerusalem
was obliterated by Rome, who plowed the city,
and rebuilt it under another name, Capitol Aelia.
Judah was renamed Palestine, after the
Philistines, by Hadrian who wanted to eliminate
the memory of the Jewish nation.
Following this rebellion, for the most
part Jewish power had ceased to exist, the
survivors of these two events in A.D. 70 and 132
were scattered throughout the Roman and Persian
Empires, with some Jews settling in Arabia, out
of the reach of the Roman Empire. In Arabia,
these Jewish survivors of Rome continued to
correspond with their brethren in Empires of
Rome and Persia. Years later, after the rise of
Islam, the descendents of Israel’s scattered
population would be heard from again.
The emergence of the nation of Israel
seemed like an incredible impossibly one hundred
years ago, though it was the hope of a small
minority of Jews living in Europe, and some who
migrated to the land years earlier. The powers
of western nations, including United States,
along with the Ottoman Empire, the Turkish
Muslim kingdom, would never allow the creation
of a Jewish state in Muslim lands. World war I
and II changed the circumstances as the Turkey
allied itself with Germany against the other
Emergence of Islam
When Islam emerged from the deserts of
Arabia, the idea of Jewish people occupying the
lands of Israel was noteven
a thought. Islam, under Mohammad had completely
defeated the Jewish tribes of Arabia, the
survivors of Roman destruction. After
Muhammad’s death, the conquest of Islam
subjected the lands of the Bible, under the
mantle of the Prophet. Yemen also known as Saba
(Queen of Sheba fame) fell , Persia fell, Roman
Palestine in 637 and then Egypt.
Eventually by the year 732, the armies
of Islam conquered Roman North Africa, and
entrenched themselves in Europe. Christianities’
very existence came into question. Islam’s
advance in Europe stopped at Tours, France in
what is known at the Battle of Tours.
Encyclopedia Britannica says the following about
this often forgotten battle between Islam and
Victory won by Charles Martel, the de facto
ruler of the Frankish kingdoms, over Muslim
invaders from Spain.
The battlefield cannot be exactly located, but
it was fought somewhere between Tours and
Poitiers, in what is now west-central France.
the Muslim governor of Córdoba, had invaded
Aquitaine (present southwestern France) and
defeated its duke, Eudes. Eudes appealed for
help to Charles, who stationed his forces to
defend the city of Tours from the northward
progress of the Muslims. According to tradition,
the Muslim cavalry attacks broke upon Charles's
massed infantry, and after ʿAbd-ar-Raḥmān
was killed in the fighting, the Arabs retired
southward. There were no further Muslim
invasions of Frankish territory, and Charles's
victory has often been regarded as decisive for
world history, since it preserved western Europe
from Muslim conquest and Islāmization. The
victory also served to consolidate Charles's
leadership of the Franks, and he was able to
assert his authority in Aquitaine, where Eudes
swore allegiance to him.
This single battle set the tone for
future relations between the West and Islam,
leading to the crusades and the re-conquest of
Jerusalem, from the hand of Islam.
With all these events taking place
around the lands of Israel, the Jewish people
were a scattered people. The Jews who survived
the Roman invasions became subjects of the
Europeans and the Muslims, often facing
persecution at the whim of a new ruler, who
disliked Jews. The existence of a Jewish nation
was not even a question, since the Jews were a
powerless people. The words of Moses were being
fulfilled, written almost 2000 years earlier in
Deuteronomy. Moses foretold a day of
suffering, after the nation is scattered for its
disobedience. They would be at the hands of the
nations, as their very existence was in doubt.
64 "Then the Lord will scatter you among all
peoples, from one end of the earth to the other,
and there you shall serve other gods, which
neither you nor your fathers have known-wood and
65 "And among those nations you shall find no
rest, nor shall the sole of your foot have a
resting place; but there the Lord will give
you a trembling heart, failing eyes, and
anguish of soul.
66 "Your life shall hang in doubt before
you; you shall fear day and night, and have no
assurance of life.
Why does Israel matter?
At this point, someone might ask, what
the point? Why does Islamic history even matter?
Israel did not evenexist
when the Islam came around, and its only been a
nation since 1948. Why should we care?
God in the Bible, tells us Israel
matters, in the book of Jeremiah, he proclaims
the existence of Israel as a nation, is more
secure then the stars, moon and sun, only if
they could be eliminated the Israel as a nation
would cease to exist.
35 Thus says the Lord, Who gives the sun
for a light by day, The ordinances of the
moon and the stars for a light by
night, Who disturbs the sea, And its waves roar
(The Lord of hosts is His name):
36 "If those ordinances depart From before Me,
says the Lord, Then the seed of Israel shall
also cease From being a nation before Me
forever." 37 Thus says the Lord: "If heaven
above can be measured, And the foundations of
the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast
off all the seed of Israel For all that they
have done, says the Lord.
Does God word matter, could the
proclamation in Jeremiah just be symbolic? No,
the Bible clearly declaresIsrael,
the nation as a central part of God’s plan, not
only in the past but also in the future and for
the rest of eternity. In Isaiah, like Jeremiah
God declares His eternal relationship with the
descendents of Jacob, the nation of Israel.
Therefore, if we take God at His word, then the
nation of Israel is central to His eternal plan.
His plan is not dependent on the nation, because
He declares to Israel, “you have not known Me”.
Despite Israel’s lack , they are elect and will
be saved, according to Isaiah and many other
scriptures, the nations will submit to Jacob
(Israel) and her King the Messiah. (See Hosea
1;7, Romans 11:26, Zechariah 2;10-13, 14:16-21
4 For Jacob My servant's sake, And Israel My
elect, I have even called you by your name;
I have named you, though you have not known
Me. 5 I am the Lord, and there is no other;
There is no God besides Me. I will gird you,
though you have not known Me, Isaiah 17 But
Israel shall be saved by the Lord With an
everlasting salvation; You shall not be ashamed
or disgraced Forever and ever.
Is God’s word sure?
Jesus thinks so, saying the fulfillment of God’s
word is more sure the very heavens and earth,
saying they will pass away first, until the law
is fulfilled. Isaiah declares God’s word will
not return void, or empty, which means it will
So shall My word be that goes forth from My
mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it
shall accomplish what I please, And it shall
prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah
Therefore, if Israel as a nation is central to
God’s plan, then by understanding God’s word,
regarding the nation of Israel and the thoughts
and intentions of the nations opposed to Israel
we can understand the situation in the world
Israel today is surrounded by sea of
Islamic nations, is this something we need to
· What are the plans and intentions of
these nations, regarding Israel?
· Is Israel’s existence something we
should pay attention to?
Since we can clearly see, the unique
position of Israel has a nation, is its creation
in 1948 significant in this light? Well
according to numerous scriptures, Israel and
Jerusalem become the focal point of world
conflict on the earth in the end of the age. In
fact, the name of arch-angel Michael is only
mentioned five times in both the Old and New
Testaments (Daniel 10:13, 21, 12;1, Jude 1:9,
Daniel 12:1 and Revelation 12:7, both
link a conflict at the end of this age with
Daniel’s people and the nation of Israel.
Michael the is addressed, as the “great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people”.
The people are Daniel’s people, the Jews, in
other words Israel, secondly we are told, there
will be a time unequalled in the history of the
world, but Daniel’s people, the Jews will be
delivered out of it.
"At that time Michael shall stand up, The great
prince who stands watch over the sons of your
people; And there shall be a time of trouble,
Such as never was since there was a nation, Even
to that time. And at that time your people shall
be delivered, Every one who is found written in
the book. Daniel 12:1
When we understand the restoration of Israel, as
a significant prophetic event, and its
relationship with the rest of the Muslim world,
we can only come to one conclusion, Islam as an
opponent to Israel plays a significant role in
Now the creation of Israel, as a nation
has stirred the ire of the Muslim world for the
last nearly sixty years, yet its creation in the
last days is clearly described. (See also
Deuteronomy 30:1-3, Isaiah 14;1-2, 49:22-24,
56:8, Jeremiah 12:15, 16:14-15, 23:3-4,7-8,
30:1-3,11,18, 31:8-10, Ezekiel 20:34-40,
37:12-14,21-22, 38:8, 39:23-29, Hosea 1:10-11,

8After many days
you will be visited. In the latter years
you will come into the land of those brought
back from the sword and gathered from many
people on the mountains of Israel, which hadlong been desolate; they were brought out
of the nations, and now all of them dwell
23The Gentiles shall know that the house of
Israel went into captivity for their iniquity;
because they were unfaithful to Me, therefore I
hid My face from them. I gave them into the hand
of their enemies, and they all fell by the
sword. 24According to their uncleanness and
according to their transgressions I have dealt
with them, and hidden My face from them.”’
25“Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Now I
will bring back the captives of Jacob, and
have mercy on the whole house of Israel; and I
will be jealous for My holy name—26after they
have borne their shame, and all their
unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to
Me, when they dwelt safely in their own land and
no one made them afraid. 27When I have
brought them back from the peoples and gathered
them out of their enemies’ lands, and I am
hallowed in them in the sight of many nations,
28then they shall know that I am the LORD their
God, who sent them into captivity among the
nations, but also brought them back to their
land, and left none of them captive any longer.
29And I will not hide My face from them anymore;
for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the
house of Israel,’ says the Lord GOD.”
From these two sections of scripture in Ezekiel,
we can draw the following points.
The event of Israel’s gathering will be in the
later days, at the end of time
Israel will be gathered from many nations, on
the mountains of Israel.
This will occur after a long period of
Israel suffered for their sins
Many nations will come to know the Lord, through
the events happening to Israel
The Holy Spirit in the end will be poured out on
house of Israel
Understand, Ezekiel was a Babylonian captive, so
his words recorded written about 2600-years ago,
predate Islam by 1200-years. He records not only
the restoration of Israel to the land in the
last-days (latter years), Ezekiel lists very
specific Muslim nations Iran, Libya and
Ethiopia, their ancient names being Persia, Put
and Cush. Today, Iran leads the charge of Muslim
nations against Israel. Including the Iranian
alliance are Syria and Hezbollah, which operates

land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and
Tubal, and prophesy against him,

am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh,

jaws, and lead you out, with all your army,
horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a
great company with bucklers and shields, all of
them handling swords.

all of them with shield and helmet; Ezekiel
The team of nations assembled against Israel is
vast, Israel is nation restored nation
surrounded on every side, except its western
border, by Muslim nations.
Nations in Israel’s past and Today
The links between Islam and Israel are
numerous, in many ways the history of the Jews
and Israel are intertwined with Islam. Islam is
not specifically mentioned in the Bible, but its
footprints can clearly be seen. The Old
Testament was completed in 425 B.C., about
1000-years before the birth of Mohammad, and the
New Testament in A.D. 100. The role Islam plays
in Israel’s future is unmistakable, since the
bible clearly indicates the restoration of the
nation of Israel in the last days, and the
nations who would oppose them.
One amazing fact emerges, when a survey
is done of Israel’s past and compared to the
present. The list of nations, which were its
enemies in the Old Testament period, has
reemerged from history, and are again Israel’s
enemies. Another point, which we cannot avoid is
all these nations today are Muslim.
How did these nations emerge? Wasn’t
Syria, Egypt, Persia, Arabia, Palestine and
Jordan always a nation? Many of the nations in
the Middle East emerged after the fall of the
A quick survey of nations
Lebanon Then: the term comes from the snow caped
mountain range to the north of Israel,
means whiteness. The land marked the northern
border of Israel, one of the more famous people
in the Bible from this land is King of Tyre,
named Hiram (2 Samuel 5;11), who supplied the
wood for Solomon’s temple. Later Jezebel, the
daughter of the King and priest of Sidon (I
Kings 16:31), would work with Ahab, King of
Israel to corrupt Israel. Tyre and Sidon were
known for its trading merchants and pride, the
King of Tyre is used as “Type” or picture of
Satan pride and glory (Ezekiel 28:12-17).
In 1943, France granted Lebanon its independence
as a nation. Today Lebanon is 59.7% Muslim with
a 39% Christian population.
Iran and Syria, sworn enemies of Israel, along
with Hezbollah, have control over much of the
country. Hezbollah is armed and funded by Iran
and Syria and sworn to the destruction of
Syria in the Bible is known as Syria and
Damascus the chief city-state of the region,
until Assyria conquered Damascus. Israel and
Syria were known for their constant conflicts in
the past. They are a Semitic people, from the
same stock as Israel. Jacob is called a Syrian
(Deut. 26:5), who went down into Egypt. The
gods and goddess were a constant threat to the
nation (Judges 10:6). David as well as Solomon
were in constant war against Syria (I Kings
Syria became a nation in 1946, after France
granted the country independence. The country
is 74% Muslim 16% Christian. The population is
90% Arab, numbering about 18.8 million.
Syria and Iran have both signed a mutual defense
pact, if either nation is attacked by Israel,
they will consider it as an attack on the
other. Israel occupies the Golan Heights and
the Shaba farms, which Syria lost to Israel
during the 1967 war with Israel.
Egypt is an ancient nation, traced back to the
son of Ham, Mizraim (Gen. 10:6). There the
a nation, as Jacob family emerged after
400-years of captivity into a nation. Egypt
tried to destroy Israel, after the population
became too large, first by killing every male
child (Exodus 1).
Then when the nation was delivered Egypt pursued
Israel into the Red Sea (Exodus 14:23). Israel
in the wilderness constantly wanted to turn back
into Egypt, rejecting God’s leadership under
Moses (Exodus 14:11-12). Israel constantly
looked to Egypt, rather then the Lord to help
with their conflicts with Babylon and Assyria.
Egypt was under British control until 1922, and
following the 2nd World War became a
sovereign nation. The population is 78.8
million and 90% Sunni Muslim,
the signed a piece agreement with Israel, which
caused Egypt to be rejected by many of the Arab
nations. The population is Sunni, as opposed to
Iran, which is Shiite.
Jordan is new name for this region, in the Bible
the area was known as Ammon, Moab and Edom. All
three nations have a common ancestor with
Israel. Ammon (Gen. 19:38) and Moab (Gen.
19:37) are the descendents of Lott, through his
daughters, and Edom is from Esau (Gen. 25:30,
36:1), Jacob’s brother. All three nations were
adversaries to Israel, during much of their
existence.(I Samuel 14:47). The capital of
Jordan is Amman, after the nation of Ammon.
Jordan became a nation in 1946, and adopted the
name of Jordan in 1950. They were one of the
nations to attack Israel on the first day they
became a nation in May 1948. The population
numbers about 5.9 million, with 92% being
Muslim, and 98% Arab. They along with Egypt
signed a peace agreement with Israel. According
to some statistics, as many as 3.0 million
Palestinians make up the population of Jordan.
The name Palestine actually means Philistine;
they were the ancient enemies of Israel known as
peoples” who arrived from the land of Crete to
populate the coastal area of Palestine. (Genesis
10:14, Jeremiah 47;4). They were a constant
threat and enemy to Israel occupying the area
known as Gaza (Judges 16:21), including the
cities of Ashdod and Asheklon. After Alexander
the Great’s conquest, they were no longer a
threat to Israel. Hadrian revived the name in
his attempt to eliminate Judah from being a
The Arab populations of the land of Israel
declare their name to be Palestinians, or
Philistines. Two factions are fighting for
control of the people, Fatah a secular
Palestinian group and Hamas a militant Muslim
group, allied with Syria and Iran. Both groups
have a history of wanting to destroy the nation
Iran until 1935, was known as Persia. Persia
under Cyrus the Great (Isaiah 44:2, 45:1)
defeated Babylon, and created an Empire, which
encompassed all of Israel and the Middle East.
Cyrus allowed the Jews to return and rebuild the
Temple (Ezra 1:1-8). During the reign of Xerxes
(486-465 B.C.), Haman the prime minister of the
of Persia attempted to eliminate the Jews
(Esther 3:8), they were saved when Esther, a Jew
became queen of Persia and intervened. Daniel
foretold the fall of Persia, and the rise of
Greece (Daniel 8:20-21).
Iran Now: Today
Iran lead the charge against Israel, threatening
to wipe Israel off the map. Currently Iran is
nuclear weapons, along with other sophisticated
weapons which to wage war against Israel. Iran
is allied with Russia, who is helping them with
nuclear technology. Syria and Iran are both
avowed enemies of Israel. The population of
Iran 68.6 million, 51% Persian, 89% are of the
Shia sect of Islam. The current leader sees
himself as one to usher in the end of the age,
with the coming of the Shia “Messiah”, the
Mahdi. They believe Mahdi along with Jesus will
vanquish the enemies of Islam, including the
West and the Jews.
Assyria and Babylon
Assyria and Babylon Then:
Babylon and Assyria were two ancient rivals who
battled each other for control of the Middle
East. Jonah the prophet went to the Capital of
Assyria, Nineveh to proclaim its downfall, the
city repented (Jonah 1:2, 4:11). The nation of
Babylon defeated Assyria, under the leadership
of Nebuchadnezzar, at the battle of Carchemesh
(605 B.C.), Babylon defeated an
Egyptian-Assyrian alliance. Daniel was taken
captive to Babylon, that same year. Ezekiel was
taken captive to Babylon in 597 B.C., and in 586
B.C., Babylon destroyed Solomon’s Temple and the
city of Jerusalem. Daniel became prime minister
in the land of Babylon during the reign of
Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel was in Babylon when it
fell to Persia in 539 B.C. (Daniel 5)
Assyria and Babylon now:
Both Assyria and Babylon are in the nation of
Iraq, which became a nation after the fall of
the Ottoman Empire in 1932. The population is
97% Muslim, and 75% Arabic, 15-20% Kurdish. The
majority are like Iran and are from the
Shi'a (60%-65%) sect, with the remain group
numbering being Sunni (32%-37%).
Most Jews fled Iraq, following the rise in
anti-Jewish feelings in the 1940’s. The lands
of Babylon and Assyria are currently going
through a transition. So the final outcome is
not sure. Babylon is recorded as player in the
end-times in the book of Revelation, chapters 17
and 18, both in a religious and geographic
sense. Southern Iraq is Shiite, allied to
Iran, while the North is Kurdish, descendents of
the Medes. If the U.S. was not in Iraq the
south would be absorbed by Iran.
Why does Islam hate the Jews?
The development of Israel interaction with Islam
actually dates back to the time of Abraham, 2100
B.C., when Abraham did not have children but was
promised children. Sarah his wife, knew she was
too old to have children yet God promised
Abraham a son, therefore she thought she need to
help God with his promise. So she told Abraham,
to have a child via her Egyptian servant named
Hagar. Hagar then became pregnant with a male
child, Sarah (Sari) then despised and mistreated
Hagar, who then fled into the wilderness, only
to be rescued by the Angel of the Lord,
who told her to return, promising to bless her
offspring, who would be beyond number.
5 Then Sarai said to Abram, "My wrong be upon
you! I gave my maid into your embrace; and when
she saw that she had conceived, I became
despised in her eyes. The Lord judge between you
6 So Abram said to Sarai, "Indeed your maid is
in your hand; do to her as you please." And when
Sarai dealt harshly with her, she fled from her
7 Now the Angel of the Lord found her by a
spring of water in the wilderness, by the spring
on the way to Shur.
8 And He said, "Hagar, Sarai's maid, where have
you come from, and where are you going?" She
said, "I am fleeing from the presence of my
9 The Angel of the Lord said to her, "Return to
your mistress, and submit yourself under her
10 Then the Angel of the Lord said to her, "I
will multiply your descendants exceedingly,
so that they shall not be counted for
11 And the Angel of the Lord said to her:
"Behold, you are with child, And you shall bear
a son. You shall call his name Ishmael,
Because the Lord has heard your affliction.
12 He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be
against every man, And every man's hand against
him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all
his brethren." Genesis 16:5-12
Later after, Sarah also became pregnant when she
was ninety, according to God’s promise, she
wanted Ishmael sent away, so as to not have part
Abraham’s inheritance. God told Abraham to
listen to his wife, God however promised to
bless Ishmael and make him a great nation.
Ishmael would have many descents, but the
covenant blessing stayed with Abraham. Esau,
Jacob’s brother took wives who were Ishmael’s
descendents (Gen. 28:9). Joseph, was sold to
Ishmaelite, by his brothers (Gen. 39:1)
9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian,
whom she had borne to Abraham, scoffing.
10 Therefore she said to Abraham, "Cast out this
bondwoman and her son; for the son of this
bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, namely
11 And the matter was very displeasing in
Abraham's sight because of his son.
12 But God said to Abraham, "Do not let it be
displeasing in your sight because of the lad or
because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has
said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac
your seed shall be called.
13 "Yet I will also make a nation of the son of
the bondwoman, because he is your seed."
14 So Abraham rose early in the morning, and
took bread and a skin of water; and putting it
on her shoulder, he gave it and the boy to
Hagar, and sent her away. Then she departed and
wandered in the Wilderness of Beersheba.
15 And the water in the skin was used up, and
she placed the boy under one of the shrubs.
16 Then she went and sat down across from him at
a distance of about a bowshot; for she said to
herself, "Let me not see the death of the boy."
So she sat opposite him, and lifted her voice
17 And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the
angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and
said to her, "What ails you, Hagar? Fear not,
for God has heard the voice of the lad where he
18 "Arise, lift up the lad and hold him with
your hand, for I will make him a great nation."
19 Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well
of water. And she went and filled the skin with
water, and gave the lad a drink.
20 So God was with the lad; and he grew and
dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer.
21 He dwelt in the Wilderness of Paran; and his
mother took a wife for him from the land of
Ishmael along with Isaac buried Abraham at the
Tomb of the patriarch in Hebron. Today over the
grave of Abraham isa
wall, on one is a mosque, and on the other side
is synagogue. Both Islam and Judaism claim
rights to the tomb of Abraham. The tombs of
Isaac and Jacob are currently on the Muslim
side, as Muslim sees himself or herself as
possessor of Abraham’s covenant.
The jealousy of Isaac would be carried from
generation to generation as the descendents of
Ishmael multiplied. To be the subject of
Abraham’s blessing, rather then being outside of
it seems the ultimate goal of Islam. To take
from Isaac and Jacob, the promises blessing
comes through in the Quran.
124. And (remember) when his Lord tried Abraham
with (His) commands, and he fulfilled them, He
said: Lo! I have appointed thee a leader for
mankind. (Abraham) said: And of my offspring
(will there be leaders)? He said: My covenant
includeth not wrongdoers.
125. And when We made the House (at Mecca) a
resort for mankind and a sanctuary, (saying):
Take as your place of worship the place where
Abraham stood (to pray). And We imposed a duty
upon Abraham and Ishmael, (saying): Purify My
house for those who go around and those who
meditate therein and those who bow down and
prostrate themselves (in worship).
126. And when Abraham prayed: My Lord! Make this
a region of security and bestow upon its people
fruits, such of them as believe in Allah and the
Last Day, He answered: As for him who
disbelieveth, I shall leave him in contentment
for a while, then I shall compel him to the doom
of fire a hapless journey's end!
127. And when Abraham and Ishmael were raising
the foundations of the House, (Abraham prayed):
Our Lord! Accept from us (this duty). Lo! Thou,
only Thou, art the Nearer, the Knower.
Though Abraham was never in Mecca, the Quran
records him there with Ishmael, blessing the
Kaaba, as though the feud between the
descendents of Isaac and Ishmael never ceased.
Mohammad claimed to be a descendent of Abraham,
through Ishmael, which could very well be true.
There is no written record, other then
Mohammad’s testimony. Regardless, Mohammad
transfers this yearning to be the subject of
God’s covenant, to receive the blessing the
blessing, which Jacob received.
84. Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah and
that which is revealed unto us and that which
was revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac
and Jacob and the tribes, and that which was
vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and the Prophets
from their Lord. We make no distinction between
any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered.
When the Jews of Medina rejected Mohammad and
his prophet hood, and worked against him with
the Meccans, Mohammad seethed with rage. This
rage against the Jews has been transferred, via
the Quran to entire Muslim population, which
numbers 1.3 billion today.
51. O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and
Christians for friends. They are friends one to
another. He among you who taketh them for
friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth
not wrongdoing folk.
5. The likeness of those who are entrusted with
the Law of Moses, yet apply it not, is as the
likeness of the ass carrying books. Wretched is
the likeness of folk who deny the revelations of
Allah. And Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk. 6.
