Quick answer: They think it belongs to them as their inheritance through Ishmael.
Long answer: It belongs to the real heir, Isaac. The Bible records important dreams, including God’s promises. Abram, later named Abraham by God, got into a royal mess because he took a promise in a dream and tried to make it come true on his own. God promised Abram, then childless, that he would be the father of thousands. The temporary and consequently disastrous solution was to have a child through his house maid. That first son was Ishmael known today as those nations constituting the political religion of Islam. A few years later the 2nd and promised son Isaac, is born – the real heir.
In virtually every society except the USA blessings and rewards go to the eldest son, not the younger. You see the problem. Modern day Islam thinks it is entitled to the entire inheritance from Abraham and willing to strap bombs on their children to force the issue. Islam is avenging itself because of something that happened 3,500 years ago, and the likelihood these people will change their minds is Zero.
The land of Canaan (now Israel, formerly Palestine) goes to Isaac and his descendants, hence the battle over a tiny piece of land no bigger than New Jersey. And Europe who tried to pretend for decades that it was so magnanimous and egalitarian is now on High Alert. Iran, even though it is originally Persian, is also controlled by Islamic leaders and part of the enemies of Israel and the West.
See this map online. Tiny little Israel caught in the middle. Only God can help.
February 2011 I started this blog because I saw so many people either confused or unlearned on some major Biblical issues. Today I reblog this to remind you that things have progressed to a critical state in the religious war of Islam. America, in fact most of the world, has been sucked in. The war is not going to go away. We must take our stand with Israel, not because we want to but because God is on their side, and has said so repeatedly, and we need for our own safety to be there too. In the end, He always wins.
People who don’t care a fig about religion have been forced to examine the 3,000 year old religious war now dominating the Middle East and our lives as well. It’s easy to feel annoyed over this – like what business is this of ours? But it is.
First and foremost, God Himself in the earliest documents said that those who treat Jews badly will suffer consequences. Specifically, He said they would receive a curse. That should help us smell the coffee.
This promise is in Genesis 12:3 I will bless them that bless thee, (Abraham) and curse him that curses thee (Abraham’s offspring) and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. You may care little about blessing but surely suffering under a curse should get your attention.
Second, it is the cause of the millennial war between Muslims and Jews and our immediate on-going conflagration in the Middle East. And Israel these days has only America to stand by her side. If we do not, our whole nation comes under a curse!
The United States is a win-win nation and hated by Islam because we have blessed the Jews, allowed them, like any other ethnic group, to live, work, educate, marry, start businesses, and die in peace here. Thank God. That is what it means to be a free country. Our open society is hated by Islam because it affords protection to all. If you hate Jews or Muslims, or anybody, you can do it on your own time. But the USA is here for all. We are the land of the free and the home of the brave and must stay that way.
