Below is proven by Archaeology all over Israel: 1. Israel became a nation in 1312 BCE, two thousand years before the rise of Islam. 2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel. 3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BCE, the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years. 4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 CE lasted no more than 22 years. 5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit. 6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran. 7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed never came to Jerusalem. 8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with their backs toward Jerusalem. 9. In 1948 the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty-eight percent left without ever seeing an Israeli soldier. 10. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution, and slaughter. 11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be the same. 12. Arab refugees were intentionally not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own people’s lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey. 13. The Arabs are represented by eight separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel defended itself each time and won.
14. The PLO’s Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them. 15. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths. 16. The UN Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel. 17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel. 18. The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians. 19. The UN was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives. 20. The UN was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like a policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall. – David Nolan”
One of the sad realities within the local church today centers on the fact that numerous born-again Christians have little or no knowledge of the spiritual warfare that takes place all around us. The Bible is crystal clear in proclaiming that there is a battle raging in the heavenlies as the forces of evil continue to wage war against not only the Creator, but also against all who trust in Christ Jesus as Savior and Lord. Islam is just one of the examples of that warfare.
Now, just one, (of many) reasons you can trust the claims of the Bible over other world religions.
The Bible is accurate geographically, historically, and scientifically. For example:
-In one of the oldest books in the Bible, Job said more than 4000 years ago that the earth hangs on nothing (Job 26:7). Scientists didn’t discover that fact until 1650! Hindus believed that the earth rested on the back of an elephant that stood on the back of a turtle that was swimming in a great endless sea.
-The Qur’an, written in the seventh century AD, says that the sun sets in a muddy spring (Surah 18:86). But 1700 years before Muhammad, David said the sun is actually on a circuit “from one end of heaven…to the other end” (Psalm 19:6).
The Bible has been proven accurate in all its claims. In fact, it has been ahead of the scientific world on a lot of discoveries. It isn’t up until recently that the scientific community has begun to understand the scientific principles listed in the Bible. Nothing archaeologically or scientifically has ever proven the Bible wrong. Whenever archaeology or science disagrees with the Bible, further research shows the Bible was accurate.
The same can’t be said about other religious books. Why would you believe something that has been proven false over and over again?
There are a lot of reasons for doubting that any of the versions of the Qur’an are inspired by the Creator of the universe.
-It contradicts known facts of science. For example, it teaches that the sun actually descends down into a muddy spring on the earth (Surah 18:86). You could get away with a statement like that in certain parts of the world in the seventh century. Obviously, today, we know that the sun is actually on a circuit through space and Mecca with its black stone is not the center of the universe.
-The Qur’an contradicts known facts of history. For example, it denies that Jesus of Nazareth was crucified on a cross (Surah 4:157), something that has been substantiated not only by the Bible but also by extra biblical sources, such as the Jewish Talmud and Flavius Josephus. Archaeology is not kind to Islam, which is one reason why Muslims try to destroy ancient artifacts.
There aren’t any good reasons to accept the Qur’an as inspired by God. The most popular evidence that Muslims try to give for the divine inspiration of the Qur’an is its literary beauty, but this is a very questionable means of testing a document for divine inspiration. What would stop us from believing that Shakespeare’s or Dr. Seuss’ writings were also divinely inspired? After examining these things, it would be safe to conclude that the Qur’an is not a divinely inspired book.
An excerpt from “The Holy One Called Isa,” by Pastor Ward Clinton:
2:7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God only?
In Jewish theology even the Messiah could not forgive sins and they were sure that Jesus was committing shirk. However if He really is who He claimed to be then disbelieving is the worst type of shirk of all. Al-Masihu-Isa (Jesus) is kalimat Allah and wadjih (worthy of esteem in this world and the next) according to the Quran.
2:8 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?
2:9 Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?
Since they believed that a person’s sins needed to be forgiven before they could be healed He has chosen to force them to engage their brains. One purpose of the miracles was to testify to the people precisely who Jesus truly is.
2:10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
2:11 I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.
2:12 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.
Jesus saw their faith, He may have smiled as he looked at a faith strong enough to overcome the obstacles and then He looked at the Scribes – the ones who should have had faith. Now, in part, these fellows were doing their job; they were scrutinizing this itinerant Rabbi to make sure his teaching was okay. But these were sitting there watching for what they considered to be the slightest mistake so they could blow it all out of proportion rather than allowing themselves to be moved by the working of God which was happening right before their very eyes.
The religious leadership made a connection between sin and disease, not entirely unfounded, but they were a bit misguided. To them a sick man was a man who had sinned. They had already heard Jesus preach; they had already seen Jesus heal. Still they seemed quite unmoved. Now Jesus won’t allow anyone to remain neutral towards Him. He has decided to up the ante, therefore he said, “Child your sins are forgiven.” He has just challenged them head on with that phrase. They were of the belief that the sin had to be forgiven before one could be healed. But anyone is capable of saying “your sins are forgiven” and how can it be proved whether the statement was effective or not? Now on the other hand, to tell the man to get up and walk would demonstrate then and there the authority, effectiveness, and reliability of His word. Therefore in the tenth verse Jesus lets them know they have to make a choice to either believe in Him or disbelieve. He has hoisted these experts in the law on their own petard. It is on their own traditions and stated beliefs this man could not be cured unless he was forgiven. In effect Jesus has said, “you say I have no right to forgive sins? You believe that if this man is sick, he is a sinner and cannot be cured until he is forgiven? Okay, watch this!” Jesus spoke the word and the man was cured, therefore he must be forgiven and Jesus’ claim to be able to forgive sin must be true.
Jesus probably left them in a baffled rage. Here was something that had to be dealt with; if this were allowed to continue all their rules and regulations would be turned on their head; maybe even worse, proven to be completely out of step with their Holy Scripture. So, with this incident, Jesus has signed His own death warrant and He is fully aware of it. However He is also trying to correct their understanding of God.
They had the Torah (the uncorrupted holy word from the one true God), they knew that God will not let sinners remain unpunished, but they had forgotten that the Torah also showed them a God who desired to exercise mercy and forgiveness. Remember the pouting prophet in the Old Testament who whined, “I didn’t want to warn those people because I knew You are a merciful God”?
Today, most seem to know that God forgives but they forget there are conditions that must be met… God is holy and just, as well as merciful and forgiving. He calls us into a holy, loving relationship with Himself which requires that sin be shunned, not embraced with a “Oh well, I’m only human” shrug of the shoulders.
There are a lot of reasons for doubting that the Qur’an is inspired.
-It contradicts known facts of science. For example, it teaches that the sun actually descends down into a muddy spring on the earth (Surah 18:86).

-The Qur’an has multiple internal inconsistencies.
There are no good reasons to accept the Qur’an as inspired Scripture. The most popular evidence that Muslims try to give for the divine inspiration of the Qur’an is its literary beauty, but this is a highlyquestionable means of testing a document for divine inspiration. What would stop us from believing that Shakespeare’s writings were also divinely inspired? After examining these things, it would be safe to conclude that the Qur’an is not an inspired book.
Inspired by the Draw Muhammad Contest in Garland Texas, where two Muslims tried to gun down the attendants and were killed by the police a new “draw Muhammad rally” was organized in Phoenix Arizona in front of the same mosque the Garland gunmen used to attend.
Hundreds of bikers attended the May 30, 2015 event, carrying their guns, availing themselves of the 2ndAmendment, in case their 1st Amendment came under attack.
The Muslims portrayed themselves as peaceful citizens and they even handed out free bottles of water to the media. One can only wonder, if these Muslims are so friendly and nice, who are those who shoot at the cartoonists, bomb, behead, rape and burn people. Is it possible that the two from this Mosque were the exception, rather than the rule? Not likely.
A bit of research shows this Mosque has a history of “radical” attitudes and activities. Therefore, while they are acting civilized for the time being, you can count on them causing more trouble in the future unless people are prepared to challenge them the next time they start their bullying tactics.
Many people condemned the Drawing Muhammad contest arguing that it had no other objective than to provoke. They completely miss the point.
Cartoons neither prove nor disprove anything. So what is the point? The point is that if we act like cowards and censor ourselves, like after Muslims killed the cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo, we would be submitting to their bullying, which only encourages them to do more and worse. We send the message that we are afraid of you; that all it takes to make us do your bidding is to kill a few of us and the rest of us will be frightened to death. Not only we will no longer offend you, we will even attack anyone who dares to. In this way we would acknowledge that terrorism works and all Muslims have to do to make us comply with their whims is to kill a few of us and we will bend over backwards to appease them and make sure it won’t happen again.
Those who refuse to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.
Islam means submission. You don’t “have to believe in Islam,” but you have to submit to it. Non-Muslims are “not required” to convert to Islam. Those of us who are paying attention know that that is a lie but it is what they like to claim in order to practice their stealth attack. “There is no compulsion in religion,” said Muhammad. However, they must accept their second class status (dhimmitude) and pay the jizya tax as a sign of their submission. Their women must cover their heads and walk around looking like mobile trash-bags. They are not allowed to carry arms to protect themselves, serve in the army or government, display symbols of their faith, and build or repair places of worship. They must wear distinctive clothing wherever they go. The dhimmis are forbidden to ride horses and camels, and may only ride donkeys, and only on packsaddles. They must dismount, as the sign of respect to Muslims when they meet them. And their houses cannot be higher than the houses of Muslims. Rebelling against these laws entails punishments, such as slavery (under which rape is permitted), and execution.
Whether they are the minority or the majority, the Quran prohibits Muslims accepting the rules of unbelievers. “O believers do not take your fathers or your brothers as your guardians if they prefer disbelief to Islam. Whoever does so is a wrongdoer.”( 9:23) The only status acceptable to Muslims is that they should rule over others. “We made you an exalted nation, that you may be guardians over the people.” (2:143) On the other hand, Koran commands them to obey the rules of unbelievers if they do not have the strength or numbers to terrorize those they deem unbelievers. It is when they think they are strong enough to bully that the ugly side of Islam exposes itself for what it really is.
Muslims start imposing their mastery as soon as they can. When Muhammad migrated to Yathrib, a Jewish town with substantial Arab refugees, (who were displaced due to the flooding of their country in Yemen), he had barely 200 followers. The population of the town was about eight to ten thousand people. However, his small band of followers managed to subdue the entire city, banish and massacre its indigenous population and changed its name to Madinat al Nabi (Prophet’s town) in just five years. How they did they do that? Through terror! At Muhammad’s order, they assassinated the poets who composed critical verses against him. People began to fear speaking against Islam lest they be killed. Bullying works. He bragged, I have been made victorious with terror. [Bukhari 4:52.220]
Muslims follow the examples set by their prophet to try to conquer the world. Countries that were not conquered through warfare were won through migration. Today Muslims migrate to the west and even though they are a small minority they cast terror in the hearts of the locals to make them submit. They assassinate the critics and the cartoonists. The spineless politicians, the shameless media and the clueless intellectuals are all showing their true cowardice and are telling Muslims that terrorism works; that we are afraid of you and will submit to your rules; that your barbaric blasphemy law is more important than our freedom of speech. We will sacrifice our freedom of speech, the very cornerstone of our democracy, vilify and prosecute those who offend you as longs as you threaten to kill us.
Phobia is an irrational fear. Muhammad wanted people to fear him. He said, “I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.” (8:12) How can then we say the fear of Islam is irrational? Islamophobia, as someone has pointed out, is a word invented by fascists, and used by cowards to manipulate morons.
Then we have Barak Hussein Obama’s outrageous statement that “the future must not belong to those who criticize the prophet of Islam.” This man who rarely speaks truth was at least truthful in his biography where he wrote: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” Americans read it but hid their heads in the sand much like the Germans who read Mein Kamph hid theirs.
Obama is a Muslim who hates America. Anyone who doubts that needs to open their eyes and pay attention to the facts. Unfortunately the corruption is widespread. Nidal Malik Hasan the Palestinian-American convicted of fatally shooting 13 people and injuring over 30 others in the Fort Hood mass shooting in 2009, shouted Allahu Akabr while executing his terrorist act and maintained that his motives were religious. Yet, the Department of Defense, supported by law enforcement, politicians, journalists, refused to make any connection between Islam and Hasan’s action despite his own assertions.
Daniel Pipes pointed out, “Were the subject not morbid, one could be amused by the disagreement over what exactly caused the major to erupt. Speculations included “racism” against him, “harassment he had received as a Muslim,” his “sense of not belonging,” “mental problems,” “emotional problems,” “an inordinate amount of stress,” the “worst nightmare” of his being deployed to Afghanistan, or something fancifully called “pre-traumatic stress disorder.” One newspaper headline, ‘Mindset of Rogue Major a Mystery,’ sums up this bogus state of confusion.”
There is no confusion. This is called dhimmitude. The two factors that promote it are fear and greed. The people, and those in power, including the media and the academia, are largely afraid of Muslims although some have been bought. Many Universities receive donations from Iran and Saudi Arabia to create departments for Islamic studies that advance their agenda.
Therefore it is time for all Christians to stand up and say, “You shall proceed no further,” to the death cult of Islam and all of its enablers. It is time for all freedom loving Americans to stand and stop the advance of the barbarians. There will be a clash of civilizations but once the Islamofacist bullies see that we mean business they will suddenly decide to leave their 7th century behavior and become part of the civilized world. …at least for a time.
I asked one of my Arab friends who claimed to be a Palestinian, to tell me the meaning of the word Palestine. He said that he doesn’t know. I asked him if there has ever been a Nation called Palestine in history; if there was, what was the date of inception, details of currency, leaders, national anthem, flag, capital? He couldn’t answer the question.
I asked him again whether he knows where the name Palestine came from. He said no, and I asked him to take few minutes to Google it. He did and found out that the word ”Palestine” originated from the Hebrew word ”Philistine” meaning ”a person who is hostile”. I asked him what did he find. He said that everything he found is Zionist propaganda against the Palestinians.
I asked him, what language do the Palestinians speak? He said Arabic. I asked him does the Arabic language have the letter “P” in its alphabet, he kept silent and refused to answer.
I asked him again, how can you claim that you’re a Palestinian, yet you don’t know the meaning of Palestine. I gave him an example, In Hebrew the meaning of the name ISRAEL is: ”May God prevail”.
Every nation has names and names have meaning. Whether it’s people’s names or Nation’s, they all have meanings.
I asked him if he’s aware that Israel existed before Christianity and Islam? He said no that Israel was invented by the Zionists. I asked him, who are the Zionists, where did they come from and what is the meaning of Zionist? He couldn’t answer.
I said to him that if he believes that the Zionists invented Israel, it also means that the Zionists invented the Quran, Islam’s holiest scripture because the Quran mentioned Israel as a Nation and the Jews as People.
And the Quran actually made it clear that the land belongs to the Israelites.
“We [Allah] settled the Israelites in a blessed land and provided them with good things”. Qur’an 10:93
“Enter, My People, the Holy Land which Allah has assigned for you. Do not turn back, or you shall be ruined”. [Qur’an 5: 21]
“Pharoah sought to scare them [the Jews] out of the land [of Israel]: but We [Allah] drowned him, together with all who were with him. Then We said to the Israelites: ‘Dwell in this land. When the promise of the hereafter comes to be fulfilled, We shall assemble you all together [in the Land of Israel in the End of Days]”. [Qur’an 17:103]
“It was Our [Allah’s] will to favour those who were oppressed [the Jews] and to make them leaders of mankind, to bestow on them a noble heritage and to give them power in the land [of Israel]: and to inflict on Pharoah, Haman, and their army, the very scourge dreaded by their victims”. [Qur’an 28: 5-6]
“We [Allah] gave the persecuted people [the Jews] dominion over the eastern and western lands which We had blessed [the east and west banks of the Jordan River]. Thus your Lord’s gracious word was fulfilled for the Israelites, because they had endured with fortitude; and We destroyed the edifices and towers of Pharoah and his people”. [Qur’an 7:137]
I showed him the 5 verses above and asked him, if he believes that the Quran is eternal word of Allah and should be trusted and obeyed? He said yes but Quran also call them to make war with the Jews. I said to him, yes I know that but the Quran never told you Muslims to claim that Jewish lands belongs to the Muslims:
He said that he doesn’t want to talk about this issue again. I said to him that he should dig a little bit deeper because at the end of the day he will find out that he originated from Egypt, Syria or some other Arab country but there is no such thing as Palestinians.
