Since I travel to Israel frequently on business I have had many opportunities to speak with Rabbis and less devout Jews on many issues including the
historical ownership of the land of Israel. I have been told many times that Israel, including "Greater Israel" (The land from the Nile to the
Euphrates) has been allocated to the Jews by God. It is their passionate belief.
This belief is the reason that the government of Israel sends settlers into the West Bank to establish settlements. It is the reason so many non Jews
have been forced into exile as refugees, displaced from homes and land their families have occupied for many generations.
So is this the true covenant with God? That Jews have a biblical right to this land to the exclusion of others? Well, lets take a closer look at this.
In fact, Genesis, chapter 24 (where the covenant is established) certainly does NOT give anything to Jews. Nothing! The covenant is with the OFFSPRING
of Abraham. It has absolutely nothing to do with the a religion. Now, the offspring of Abraham includes some people who happen to practice the jewish
religion but also some who have chosen Islam or Christianity as their religion of choice.
Eastern European Jews are converts from the line of Japheth NOT Abraham which excludes them from the covenant. Shepardic Jews are most certainly from
blood of Abraham and share in the covenant. Arabs are from the blood of Abraham and also share in the covenant.
There has been some genetic investigation into "Jewishness" with the "Cohen gene" which may suggest descent from a jew but it has nothing to do with
the genetic line of Abraham.as all Jews do not have descent. 2-3000 years ago conversion to Judiaism was not uncommon.
Whats the point? Well, it seems to me if one wants to cry from the mountains that God gave them this land they should be sure they in fact do have a
biblical right to it. To displace an Arab would be an affront to both God and Abraham as Arab descent from the blood of Abraham is
