SUMMARY OF THE BOOK,  “THE UNHOLY WAR”
  • Until September 11th Americans seldom saw or heard the Arabic word of Jihad. The bombing of Kabal,Afghanistanon Oct. 7th, 2001 has split the whole world into two camps:  the camp of belief (Muslims) and disbelief (non-Muslims).
  • The Palestinian agenda against Israelis both controlled and supported by Islamic terrorist organizations.
  • Christians committed acts of terror in disobedience to the word of Christ, where as the Muslims commit acts of terror in obedience to the word of Muhammad.
  •  Reasons why they hate us:  The US is based on Judaism and Christianity, and supports Israel. We are viewed as arrogant; we have the presence of 7,000 troops inSaudi Arabia, which hosts the two most sacred mosques to Islam in Meccaand Medina.  Our attack on Iraq, and the still un-avenged of the Christian Crusades. Last but least, our free society.
  • The Arab world claims that Israelis a terrorist state.  The Palestinians suicide bombers claim they are freedom fighters defending their homeland from Zionists invaders.
  • On April 20, 1799, Napoleon Bonaparte declared that he would issue a proclamation giving “Palestine” to the Jews as a national homeland.  Even though Napoleon did not take Jerusalem, and the proclamation was lost, the historian Salo W. Baron noted that it “symbolized Europe’s acknowledgement of Jewish right inPalestine.  In 1948 President Truman supported the creation of a Jewish nation and State of Israel.
  • Jerusalem had more than 20 conquerors from different empires rule over them, but was never made on a capital of any Arab government.  By contrast, Jerusalem has been the only capital of the Jewish people.
  • The Qur’an claims that Abraham and his son Ishmael built the Great Mosque (Ka’aba inMecca) and that Abraham offered up Ishmael (rather than Isaac).  It also is said to have originated with the Night Journey of Muhammad to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which is the same site as the Jewish Temple Mount.
  • Jerusalemis not mentioned by name in the entire Qur’an.  So how important can it be to them?
  • The Muslims claim that the TempleMountis “Islam’s third-holiest shrine” butIraq ,Iran,Turkey, andSyriaalso claim to have the third holiest shrine on their soil.
  •  In 638 when Islam captured Jerusalemfrom the Byzantine Christian empire, it wanted to demonstrate its status as military conqueror of Christianity, that Muhammad was a greater prophet than Jesus, and that Islam superseded Christianity.  Therefore, the Al-Aqsa Mosque was build over the site of the Byzantine basilica of St. Mary on the site of Solomon’s Porch, where the early church was born on the day of Pentecost (Act 3:11; 5:12).
  • Byzantine Christianity built the Dome of the Rock over the site of the Holy of Holies that had once been within the Jewish Temple and turned into a refuse heap.
  • Inscribed inside the gold dome are polemical verses from the Qur’an telling Muslims that Christianity is false and that God had no son and Allah is the One God.
  • When it comes to talking about the land, we need to recognize that the Arab lands total more than 5,000,000 square miles, while Israel land (including the West Bank) adds up to only about 9,000 square miles. Israelis content to live within this small amount of territory, even though the covenant with Abraham promised much more land (about 200,00 square miles).
  • Arab nations refuse to recognize the right of Israelto exist in any area.  They want them extinguished off the face of the earth.  Sound familiar?
  • The Qur’an teaches that Islam superseded both Judaism and Christianity, and they are their enemies.  The Bible came before the Qur’an.
  • The Oslo Peace Process was doomed to fail because the Palestinians wanted to divide the city, return to its pre-1967 boundaries, establish their capital in East Jerusalem, and have exclusive sovereignty over the Temple Mount.  The Israelis would never concede to giving up sovereignty of the Temple Mountor dividing Jerusalem.
  • At the beginning of the twentieth century, Arabs rejected the term Palestinian because it was thought to refer to the Jews.  Under British Mandate, the name Palestine was practically restricted to the land on the western side of the Jordan River.
  • The use of the term Palestinian cannot be found in any dictionary, encyclopedia, or history book until after the Sate of Israel started to become a reality.  In the early 1960’s Abram leaders sought to create a unified identity.  However, there was no serious nationalistic movement until after the Six-Day-War of 1967.
  • Still the term Palestinians does not appear in the found addtional documents related to resolving the Arab-Israeli conflicts of the 1967 Six-Day=War and the 1973 Yom Kippur War.  Such an omission tells us that Arabs were not thought of as Palestinians. The term became politically correct by the PLO in 1970’s.
  • Abraham’s two sons Isaac (through his wife Sarah), and Ishmael (through Hagar – Sarah’s handmade) are cousins.  So the Arab Muslims claim Palestineas their land.  This reasoning makes the common assumption that Isaac was the father of the Israelites and Ishmael was the father of the Arabs.  Ishmael became a term to describe desert tribes, such as the Midianites (Judges 8:24).  Their lineage is traced to Abraham’s second wife Keturah (Gen. 25:2).
  • The term Arabian, used in the Old and New Testaments, indicates an inhabitant of Arabia, and is not necessarily synonymous with Arabs.
  • The twelve tribal chieftains mentioned in Gen. 25, Ishmaelite descendants may include the Bedouin people known as the Qedarites, who were succeeded by the Nabateans, whose capital was at Petrain Edomite territory.  The latest Nabatean Aramaic inscription is dated to A.D. 356; there is no clear picture of what happened to this people, although conversions to Christianity are recorded in the early Byzantine period.
  • Gen17: 20-21 clearly states by the blessing of Ishmael that his seed would become a “great nation.”  However, the text goes on to emphasize that God’s covenant will be established with Isaac (Gen. 15:18-21).
  •  The Qur’an does not mention any ancestral connections with the Canaanites (or the Philistines or Jebusites, or any Muslim writings.  Therefore, there is no historical basis for the Palestinians’ claim to an ancient lineage in the land.
  • Jew established their independence in the twentieth century, andSaudi Arabia(1913),Lebanon(1920),Iraq(1932),Syria(1941),Jordan(1946),Kuwait(1961).
  • The Arabs in Palestine left in droves because they feared they would be judged traitors to the Arab cause. Israel repeatedly offered Israeli citizenship with all its benefits to those Palestinians who would live in Israel.  There are hundreds of thousands of Israeli-Arabs who live within the State, butt all of them now identify themselves as Palestinians.
  • Arafat on Jan.30, 1996 stated, “We plan to eliminate the State of Israel and establish a Palestinian state.”
  •  Since the beginning of the Oslo Accords more than 400,000 Arabs have entered the West Bank of Gaza.  Islam is universally acknowledged as the world’s fastest growing religion.  Islam controls the attitudes and actions of every Arab country in the Middle East and North Africa(92% of the population in these regions).
  • In Western Europe Islam is the second-largest religion and is expected to become the dominant religion in just two decades. Francehas one-and-a-half million Muslims,Englandhas more than 2,000 mosques, and the U.S has an estimated seven million Muslims and some 1,370 mosques.  (30 years ago there were only 500,000 Muslims in 1986, and 598 mosques.
  • Muhammad claimed to be the prophet of God’s final revelation and that Islam is the only true and eternal religion (Qur’an 3:17).  A state of jihad exists permanently between Muslims and non-Muslims until the absolute supremacy of Islam is attained throughout the world.
  • Muhammad was well acquainted with the deity of the three Meccan goddesses Al-Lat, Al-Manat, and Al-uzza; he believed them to be the daughters of Allah.  He later renounced this worship, declaring Satan had corrupted his thinking.  The Allah of Islam is not the same as the one and only God (YHWH) of the biblical faiths of Judaism and Christianity (Exodus 20:3; 1 Cor. 8:6).
  • Radical Muslim martyrs say, “I will die for what I believe,” and a terrorist says, “You will die for what I believe.” What they are willing to die for is the promise of 72 houris or celestial virgins who call to them from Paradise.
  •  Why don’t moderate Muslims take steps to separate them selves from radical Muslims if they claim they do not agree with the terrorists?  They could desist from supporting all radical Muslim groups; educate the Muslim communities throughout the world that have been influenced by radical Islam.  Speak out against them.  One reason is the moderates would have to prove the Qur’an texts do not apply to fundamentalist Muslims.  Muslims in general are not taught to think critically, but to simply memorize the Qur’an and recite back what they are taught.  Understanding is not encouraged.  Moderates fear such a break in the Islamic community would put their lives at risk.
  • For nationalist and religious Jews the issue is simple. Jerusalem is the place God chose (Psalm 12:13-14).  The Temple Mount is explained in (Isaiah 2:2-3).  It has been promised to the Jews.
  •  The Arabs and the Palestinians have no problem with dividing the city of    Jerusalem between the east and the west.  The east was the Arab side and the west was the Israeli side.  The Temple Mountis on the east side and that is why the Palestinian leader Jeris Soudah said we cannot negotiate on this.
  •  The Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque were built over the ruins of either synagogues or Christian basilica of Saint Mary, which was built by Emperor Justinian south of the Temple Mountin the sixth-century, had the same dimensions as the Al-Aqsa Mosque built later on this spot.  Some sources say that Saint Mary’s Church was simply converted into the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
  •  There is no historical basis for the Muslim claim that Jerusalem and theTempleMountare Islamic holy places.  It was not until A.D. 1187, when Saladin finally dislodged the Crusaders, that Jerusalem was said to be the third holiest place in Islam.  What’s more, even Arabs once recognized Jerusalem’s significance to the Jewish people.  The Arab geographer Yakut wrote in A.D. 1125 “the city of Jerusalem was holy to Jews and Christians, as it has been for 3,000 and 2,000 years respectively, and that Meccawas holy to Muslims.”
  • In 1948 the Arabs expelled the Jews from the city.  The Jews won the war in 1967 and the Temple Mount technically still remains under the sovereign control of the State of Israel.
  •  The desire in 1967 to maintain status quo, with the custody of the TempleMountbeing returned to the Islamic Waqf, was made with a condition:  equal access for all religions to the site.  The Muslims agreed but with a proviso:  non-Muslims would be allowed to enter only as tourists, but must not engage in religious expression
  •  April 7, 2000, the Islamic resistance movement (Hamas) had warned Israeli Jews against going to the TempleMount.  For safety of tourists the Israeli Supreme Court decided a general ban was required, which the Israeli police would enforce.
  •  Amazingly, even though Israel was once willing to give up the historic divisions of its country-Judea and Samaria, and half of Jerusalem with the Temple Mount – as the price of peace, the Palestinians walked away from the negotiating table and renewed their local war of attrition.
  •  The PLO was founded in 1964 before the 1967 Six-Day-War, when the land presently contested was Palestinian land, reveals that the “Palestine” the PLO seeks to “liberate” can only be the land in which the State of Israel was established.  The PLO was established; the Gaza Strip and the West Bank belonged to the Arabs.  Therefore, the PLO was not set up to “Liberate” these territories but the rest of the land including the Jewish “settlements” in Haifa, Acre, Jaffa, and Tel Aviv.  The PLO should stand for “Palestinian Lands Only.”
  •  The objective is not a peace with Israel or a piece of Israel, but to take the place of Israel.
  • So long as the Arab nations want to destroy the Jews and the Jews want to survive, there will continue to be wars.
  •  The final war will take place on the same Middle-Eastern stage upon which the present conflict is being played out.  And, like the present conflict, this final battle will be settled in Jerusalem:  “I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle.  (Zechariah 14:2, 12:12).
  •  Yes, peace will come to the Middle East.  Jeremiah 31:34 and (Isaiah 2:4).  It will be a perfect permanent peace. In God’s time!  History tells us we are witnessing the “birth pangs” of the days of the end that the Bible speaks of.
