Dear Simon Peter,
Arabs, Palestinians, jordans, Jews are all descendents of only one patriarch , that is Abraham, the father of the trully faith, either through any of
his two sons: the primogenit Ismael or the son of Sarah, Isaac. The holy scriptures are clear in the sense he loved so much both and never wanted to
reject any of them.
In that sense all of them are counted as the many nations God promised were going to descend of him and also were going to inherited the blessings
he gave to him. God clearly stated that through the descendence of Abraham many nations will be blessed.
It is important to underline that when Abraham arrived first time to Palestine, Jerusalem already existed as a kingdom, and his King Melchisedec was
already also priest of God Almighty, as the Genesis states. So Monoteism existed in the Holy Land even before any hebrew started to live there.
In one of parables of Christ, the one called of the Lazarus and the Rich Man, it is said by our saviour that Abraham is who receives the good souls at
Heaven, and also that certainly descendents of Abrahan might be sent to hell, as it happened with the Rich man, but that is something that depend
entirely on their lack of accomplisment of the commandments of the law and the prophets, not into descend from one or other side of the linaje of
Pls read: en.wikipedia.org...
Besides that, our Lord Jesus Christ himself, as a man, was descendent not only of David, but also of a palestinian woman called Ruth, and also he
grew up in part in Egypt, as it was said must be according with the prophets. In his public life Christ not only predicated the gospel to the Jews,
he traveled along the current Palestinian territories of the west bank, he crossed the Jordan River and he also was in south Lebanon and he appeared
to St Paul very close to Damascus, in Syria. In the parables of Christ there are many so polite mentions of the samaritans, people that usually are
rejected by the fundamentalist zionism as not trully hebrews because they are mixed with Palestinians, what proves that he considered them also as
part of the Chosen People.
Anybody that is agitating a conflict in between the descendence of Abraham is not working for God, to the contrary is working for the evil, is trying
to destroy the faith in only one trully almighty God by promoting anhilation of the nations that praise to him. This is true it does not matter who
is trying to do this, it can be a fanatic fundamentalist of the Islam, Christianism or Zionism.
Mohammed was also descendent of Abraham, through Ismael, so he inherited also the blessings given to his ancestor, and perhaps in him it was after all
accomplished the promises granted by God to Ismael when he was lost walking with his mother in the dessert.
The fact that the majority of the arabs are not Christians, but Muslims ,might be not only their own responsibility since it is clear, by reading the
Koran, that Mohammed appeared as a prophet in a period in which there was unfortunately idolatry in cities like Medina or Mecca, and he fought a lot
against that practice. So if there was idolatry or Paganism in Arabia in the VI century A.D. something it is very evident:
Christianity failed into spread the message of Jesus on time to that region, so we must assume also our own quota of responsibility with humility and
charity in this division of religions that we have at present.
Now, it is interesting to underline that in 1980's apparitions of the Holy Virgin St Mary, mother of God, in Medjugorje, ex-yugoslavia, that have had
a tremendous influence in the Orthodox and Catholic churches, was clearly said to the children that witnessed it, in a country that was at that time
in a terrible civil war among the Islamic vs Christian groups, that the divisions of religions that we have in this world at present are not
commanded by God or exist in Heaven but are created by the men.
Of course this last claim is highly controversial and ironically has boosted great division among the Catholics that support or not the authenticity
of the Medjugorje appearitions:
Thanks for your interesting reply,
