1 The History of Israel & 3 Faiths

2 Who ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Is a country born in one day? Is a nation brought forth all at once? For as soon as Tziyon went into labor, she brought forth her children. “Would I let the baby break through and not be born?” asks Adonai. “Would I, who cause the birth, shut the womb?” asks your God. Isaiah 66:8-9 Complete Jewish Bible


4 6/1/13 Syrian rebels fire 18 rockets/mortars into Lebanon hitting Hezbollah stronghold Yusuf al-Qaradawi Sunni Muslim Cleric in Qatar He denounced Assad's Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam, as "more infidel than Christians and Jews" and Shiite Muslim Hezbollah as "the party of the devil."

5 5/21/13 Syria Syrian rebels offer Christian residents four choices: 1) renounce the ‘idolatry’ of Christianity and convert to Islam 2) pay a heavy tribute (jizya) to the Muslims for the privilege of keeping their heads and their Christian faith; 3) be killed; 4) flee for their lives, leaving all their belongings behind.

6 Saddam Hussein 4/4/03 “Long live Iraq. Long live Palestine" Hamas Leader Khaled Mash’al 3/06 “The liberation [of Palestine] will come with the help of Allah, until it is attained by the last soldier, woman, and child, despite resistance by Israel and the United States…. Jerusalem will become Arab and Muslim again, including all the places holy to Islam and Christianity.”

7 Iranian President Ahmadinejad “Wipe Israel off the map.“ "Iran believes that whoever is for humanity should also be for eradicating the Zionist regime as symbol of suppression and discrimination," Ahmadinejad on Monday said that Iranians and Muslim nations worldwide should hold Qods rallies and show their willingness to dispose of this "infectious tumor and this regime full of rascality." "Recognizing the Palestinian state is not the last goal. It is only one step forward towards liberating the whole of Palestine." Al Qods Day – 8/11

8 “This battle is not between al-Qaeda and the U.S., this is a battle of Muslims against the global Crusaders.” Osama bin Laden 1993

9 Letter to the American People allegedly written by Osama bin Laden – 12/02 "The creation and continuation of Israel is one of the greatest crimes, and you [the Americans] are the leaders of its criminals.There is no need to explain and prove the degree of American support for Israel. The creation of Israel is a crime which must be erased. Each and every person whose hands have become polluted in the contribution toward this crime must pay its price, and pay for it heavily."

10 Answer to 9 accusations by the US government– 5/09 Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, et al With regards to these nine accusations that you are putting us on trial for; to us, they are not accusations. To us they are badges of honor, which we carry with pride. Many thanks to God, for his kind gesture, and choosing us to perform the act of Jihad for his cause and to defend Islam and Muslims. Therefore, killing you and fighting you, destroying you and terrorizing you, responding back to your attacks, are all considered to be great legitimate duty in our religion. These actions are our offerings to God.

11 Answer to 9 accusations by the US government– 5/09 Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, et al You have violated the law of war by supporting the Israeli occupation of Arab land in Palestine and Lebanon, and for displacing five million Palestinians outside their land. You have supported the oppressor over the oppressed and the butcher over the victim.

12 Answer to 9 accusations by the US government– 5/09 Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, et al We do not possess your military might, nor your nuclear weapons. Nevertheless, we fight you with the almighty God. So, if our act of Jihad and our fighting with you caused fear and terror, then many thanks to God, because it is him that has thrown fear into your hearts, which resulted in your infidelity, paganism, and your statement that God had a son and your trinity beliefs. So, our religion is a religion of fear and terror to the enemies of God: the Jews, Christians, and pagans. With God's willing, we are terrorists to the bone. So, many thanks to God.

14 Radicalism usually prospers in the gap between rising expectations and declining opportunities. This is especially true where the population is young, idle, and bored; where the art is impoverished; where entertainment – movies, theater, music – is policed or absent altogether; and where young men are set apart from the consoling and socializing presence of women. Anger, resentment, and humiliation spurred young Arabs to search for dramatic remedies The Looming Tower Lawrence Wright 2006

28 Syrian Schoolbooks – 6/02 Eighth-graders are taught that, "It is known that the Jews of today do not have any connection to Palestine…” Palestinian Schoolbooks – 6/02 The Palestinians, the books claim, have first rights to the country. The "Arab Canaanites" were here before the Jews, therefore the Zionistic claim of rights to the land by virtue of forefathers are a lie. Zionism is described as a movement of which the seizing of land is foremost among its tenets.

29 Knesset Member Ibrahim Abdullah Sarsur, who heads the southern Islamic Movement inside Israel, published an official announcement Sunday according to which a nation he called the “Arab Jebusites” founded the city of Jerusalem – which he referred to using the Arabic name Al Quds – a long time before the Jews showed up there.

The expenses he laid out upon it were vastly large also, and the riches about it were unspeakable. A sign of which you have in the great cloisters that were erected about the temple, and the citadel which was on its north side. (Josephus)

64 Muhammad’s Encounter with the Angel Gabriel Terror, trembling, unable to rationalize, possessed with an evil spirit, suicidal thoughts, vice-like embrace, squeezed out words, traumatized “Unable to rationalize the ordeal he had just experienced, Muhammad concluded that he was possessed with an evil spirit and was thinking of committing suicide.” Islamic Imperialism – A History (Efraim Karsh 2007)

He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.

80 Inner Face: South Wall - In the name of Allah the Merciful the Compassionate. There is no God but Allah alone; he has no co-partner. He is the Kingship and His the praise. He giveth life and He causeth to die, and He hath power over everything. South-East Wall - Verily Allah and His angels pronounce blessing upon the Prophet. O ye who have pronounced blessings upon Him and give Him the salutation of peace. O, People of the Book (i.e. the Jews and Christians, always referred to as such by the Muslims -Ed.) do not go beyond the bounds in your religion and do not say about Allah anything but the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, is but a messenger of Allah and His word which he cast upon Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe only in Allah and of his messenger, but do not say "Three" (Trinity) and it will be better for you. Allah is only one God. Far be it from His glory that he should have a son.

81 North Wall - The Messiah will not deign to be in the service of Allah nor will the angels who stand in his presence. O Allah; pray upon Thy messenger "the servant Jesus – (N-W Wall) - the son of Mary and peace be upon him the day of his birth, the day of his death and the day of his being raised alive." That is Jesus, son of Mary - a statement concerning which YOU are in doubt. It is not for Allah to take for Himself any offspring, glory be to Him. West Wall - Allah bears witness that there is no God but Him, likewise the angels and the people possessed of knowledge (S-W Wall) - upholding justice. There is no God but He, the Almighty and All wise. Verily, the religion in Allah's sight is Islam.

82 Outer Face - West and North-West Walls - In the name of Allah the Merciful and Compassionate. There is no God but Allah alone. Praise be to Allah who hath not taken to himself offspring. To Him there has never been any person in the sovereignty. Mohammed is the messenger of Allah, may God pray upon Him and accept his intercession. Praise be God who has not taken unto himself a son and who has no partner in sovereignty nor has He any protector on account of weakness.



85 Expansion under the Prophet Mohammad, 622-632 Expansion under the Prophet Mohammad, 622-632 Expansion during the Patriarchal Caliphate, 632-661 Expansion during the Patriarchal Caliphate, 632-661 Expansion during the Umayyad Caliphate, 661-750 Expansion during the Umayyad Caliphate, 661-750

86 750 AD – ‘Capital’ of Islam Baghdad Caliphate (500 Yrs) 868-874 – 12 th Imam (Imam Mahdi) born, hidden (Shiite) 9-10 century – Shiite vs Sunni Mutazilites vs Asharites

87 Asharites vs Mutazilites Predestination vs free will The Mu‘tazilites, who created the first fully developed theological school in Islam, championed the primary role of reason; reason’s ability to know morality; the goodness and justice of God as required by reason; the unity of God; and the necessity of man’s free will. The Closing of the Muslim Mind (Robert Reilly - 2006)

88 Asharites vs Mutazilites Predestination vs free will In Ash‘arism…, the primacy of revelation over reason rises from the very nature of what is revealed: God as pure will and power. The response to this God is submission, not interrogation. The Closing of the Muslim Mind (Robert Reilly - 2006)

89 Asharites vs Mutazilites Predestination vs free will Abu Huraira reported Muhammad as saying: “Verily Allah has fixed the very portion of adultery which a man will indulge in and which he of necessity must commit.” Good & evil are foreordained The Closing of the Muslim Mind (Robert Reilly - 2006) (Insha'Allah – God’s will/God willing)

90 “Now I know why America is a superpower. America is great because its people enjoy freedom of thought. They are the product of a culture that was born in the Laboratory under the scientist’s lens, while we in the Muslim world lag behind because we have come from a repressive culture that has no respect for the mind and refuses to acknowledge its own failure to come to grips with science.” A God Who Hates (Wafa Sultan - 2009)

91 1099 – Crusades 1187 – Saladin 1450 – Ottoman Empire begins 1882 – 1920 – 3 ½ million Russian Jews immigrate to USA Late 1800’s – Zionism (Herzl)

92 1867 – Mark Twain “The Innocents Abroad” There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent—not for thirty miles in either direction. There are two or three small clusters of Bedouin tents, but not a single permanent habitation. One may ride ten miles, hereabouts, and not see ten human beings.

93 1867 – Mark Twain “The Innocents Abroad” To this region one of the prophecies is applied: "I will bring the land into desolation; and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it. And I will scatter you among the heathen, and I will draw out a sword after you; and your land shall be desolate and your cities waste." [Leviticus 26:32-33] No man can stand here by deserted Ain Mellahah and say the prophecy has not been fulfilled.

94 1867 – Mark Twain “The Innocents Abroad” We traversed some miles of desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds—a silent, mournful expanse, wherein we saw only three persons—Arabs It is a hopeless, dreary, heart-broken land. Palestine is desolate and unlovely. And why should it be otherwise? Can the curse of the Deity beautify a land?

95 “In the twelve and a half centuries between the Arab conquest in the seventh century And the beginnings of the Jewish return in the 1880’s, Palestine was laid waste. Its ancient canal and irrigation systems were destroyed and the wondrous fertility of which the Bible spoke vanished into desert and desolation.” From Time Immemorial – Joan Peters Quoting Carl Hermann Voss - 1953

96 “Under the Ottoman empire of the Turks, the policy of disfoliation continued; the hillsides were denuded of trees and the valleys robbed of their topsoil.” From Time Immemorial – Joan Peters Quoting Carl Hermann Voss - 1953

97 Leviticus 26: 32-33 Zechariah 7: 13-14; 8: 7-13 Ezekiel 28: 25-26; 34: 11-14, 26-27 I will scatter you – but I will gather you And while you are away, the land will be desolate; but when you return…

101 “They are a gang of Infidels and Christians,” she replies. “They don’t like Allah and do not worship Allah. They hate us.” “For those who are older than me, weapons will accelerate the Right of Return,” "When we die as martyrs, we go up to heaven," "With God's help and our own strength, we will wage war," she says. "And with education and jihad, we will return." UNRWA Palestinian Summer Camps 2013

102 1933 – Hitler, Nazi Germany 1933-1939 – Jews “encouraged” to leave Germany 1939 - 1945 – WWII Arabs, Haj Amin al-Husseini Jews “locked” in Europe The “final solution” 1947 – UN Partition Plan

103 Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas laid out his vision on Monday for the final status of Israeli-Palestinian relations ahead of peace talks due to resume in Washington for the first time in nearly three years. "In a final [re]solution, we would not see the presence of a single Israeli – civilian or soldier - on our lands," Abbas said in a briefing to mostly Egyptian journalists. Monday, 29 Jul 2013 Reuters

104 United Nations Partition Plan 1947 Arab State Jewish State International Zone (Jerusalem)

105 May 14, 1948 – Israel reborn Isaiah 66: 7-11 – a nation comes forth Ezekiel 37 – the Dry Bones Five Arab armies (Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Lebanon and Iraq) immediately invaded Israel. Their intentions were declared by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League: "It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades." Islamic Imperialism – A History (Efraim Karsh 2007)

106 May 14, 1948 – Israel reborn Had the Jews lost the war, their territory would not have been handed over to the Palestinian Arabs. Rather, it would have been divided among the invading Arab forces, for the simple reason that none of the region’s Arab regimes viewed Palestine as a distinct entity and most of them had their own designs on this territory. Islamic Imperialism – A History (Efraim Karsh 2007)

107 Post War Armistice Lines 1949 - 1967 Arab State (Jordan) Jewish State Jerusalem Gaza Strip (Egyptian)

108 United Nations Partition Plan 1947 Arab State Jewish State International Zone (Jerusalem)

109 1948 – present – the 2 nd (and last) in-gathering? Isaiah 11:10-12 Amos 9:8-15 1964 – “Milestones” published Sayyid Qutb

110 [Sayyid Qutb] Calls on the faithful to topple illegitimate regimes and create pure Islamic states to free mankind from every authority except that of God “…Islam is a universal declaration of the freedom of man on the earth from every authority except God’s authority, and that religion ought to be purified for God…” Dreams & Shadows – Robin Wright (2008)

111 Muslim Brotherhood mission: ~ build the Muslim individual ~ build Muslim families ~ create Islamic societies ~ create Islamic states ~ create Islamic caliphate Mohammad Habib – Muslim Brotherhood – (Egypt, 2005) “If we are to apply the Islamic rule, which says that non-Muslims cannot have guardianship over Muslims, then a Christian may not be president.” Dreams & Shadows – Robin Wright (2008)

112 The Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) 18 August 1988 Preamble excerpt: Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it" (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory). Article Six: The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) is a distinguished Palestinian movement, whose allegiance is to Allah, and whose way of life is Islam. It strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine, for under the wing of Islam followers of all religions can coexist in security and safety where their lives, possessions and rights are concerned. In the absence of Islam, strife will be rife, oppression spreads, evil prevails and schisms and wars will break out.

113 Article 11 excerpt: The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up. Article 13 excerpt: There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors.

114 Article 15 excerpt: It is necessary to instill in the minds of the Moslem generations that the Palestinian problem is a religious problem, and should be dealt with on this basis. Article 23 excerpt: The Islamic Resistance Movement views other Islamic movements with respect and appreciation.

115 Hamas – (Arabic) = zeal

116 Hamas – Arabic = zeal Hamas – Hebrew verb = to treat violently Chamas -Hebrew noun = disruption of divinely established order

117 PLO Charter - 1968 Article 20: Claims of historical or religious ties of Jews with Palestine are incompatible with the facts of history and the true conception of what constitutes statehood. Judaism, being a religion, is not an independent nationality. Nor do Jews constitute a single nation with an identity of its own; they are citizens of the states to which they belong.
