My point, PR, is that the Jewish people are exactly who the Bible says they are.
They are the physical progeny of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, whom God chose out of all the peoples of the earth.
Abraham's father was a moon-worshipper in Ur of the Chaldeans. But God began to speak and Abraham listened. He struck out from his home and his people to obey God’s call to “go to the land I will show you.” His wife was barren and old, but God promised Abraham a son. “He believed the Lord,” Scripture tells us, “and he credited it to him as righteousness” and he became known as “the friend of God.”
God made a permanent pledge to Abraham, meaning the Jewish people were under no obligation to do anything to inherit the land as a permanent possession, that God alone would see that the land would become their eternal possession.
The term "Land of Israel" is a direct translation of the Hebrew phrase ארץ ישראל (Eretz Yisrael), which occasionally occurs in the Bible, and is first mentioned in the Tanakh in 1 Samuel 13:19, following the Exodus, when the Israelite tribes were already in the Land of Canaan.
My point is that the Jewish people are who God says they are. They are not Khazarian, they are the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and they are the permanent owners of Eretz Yisrael.
Further, my point is that anyone who bets against Israel will lose because they are betting against the God of Creation.
Acts 7:4-8 Stephen's Address to the Sanhedrin:
"So Abraham left the land of the Chaldeans and settled in Haran. After his father died, God brought him out of that place, into this land where you are now living.
He gave him no inheritance here, not even a foot of ground. But God promised to give possession of the land to Abraham and his descendants, that eventually the whole land would belong to Abraham and his descendants, even though he did not yet have a child.
God told him that his descendants would be foreigners in a strange land [Egypt], and that they would be enslaved and mistreated four hundred years."
‘But I will punish the nation that enslaves them,’ God said, ‘and afterward they will come forth and worship Me in this place.’
Then God gave to Abraham the ceremony of circumcision as a sign of the covenant. So Abraham circumcised Isaac a week after he was born; Isaac circumcised his son Jacob, and Jacob circumcised his twelve sons, the famous patriarchs of our race."
Israel’s Ambassador To The UN Danny Danon has used Scripture to prove the State of Israel belongs to the Jewish People.
At the United Nations Security Council on Monday, May 6, 2019, he raised the Bible to defend the Jewish claims to the land. During his speech, he used the Bible, history, international law and the pursuit of international peace and security to make his case.
Deed to the Land
Danny also explained the history of how Jewish rights over Israel have been contested over the centuries but this doesn’t change God’s plan for Israel to be their permanent possession.
“In 70 CE, Roman Emperor Titus destroyed our Second Temple, expelled the Jewish people, and renamed the land nestled between Egypt and Lebanon ‘Syria-Palestina, as a southern province of Syria. THAT is where the name Palestine comes from, though Jews still lived in Jerusalem,” he argued.
He then raised up the Bible and claimed it as the title deed to the land of Israel. “This is the deed to our land,” Danny declared confidently.
He also emphasized that all the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) attest with the Jew’s ownership of Israel.
“The Qur’an itself accepts the divine deed of the Jewish people to the land of Israel,” he added.
Following are Qur'anic verses rarely mentioned by Muslims or Christians or Jews, if they are even aware of them:
"We [Allah] settled the Israelites in a blessed land and provided them with good things".
[Qur'an: Sura 10, "Jonah", verse 93]
"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: Sura 17, "The Night Journey", verse 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: Sura 28, "The Story", verses 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: Sura 7, "The Heights", verse 137]
"To Moses We gave the Scriptures, a perfect code for the righteous, with precepts about all things, and a guide and a blessing, so that his people might believe in the ultimate meeting with their Lord".
[Qur'an: Sura 6, "Cattle", verse 155]
"tell of Our servants Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: men of might and vision whom We made pure with the thought of the hereafter. They shall dwell with Us among the righteous whom We have chosen".
[Qur'an: Sura 38, "Sad", verse 46]
"Glory be to Him [Allah] who made His servants [Muhammed and El Burak] go by night from the Sacred Temple [of Mecca] to the farther Temple [of Jerusalem], whose surroundings We have blessed, that We might show him some of Our signs. He [Allah] alone hears all and observes all. We [Allah] gave Moses the Scriptures and made them a guide for the Israelites, saying, 'Take no other guardian than Myself. You are the descendants of those whom We carried in the Ark with Noah. He was a truly thankful servant'".
[Qur'an: Sura 17, "The Night Journey", verses 1-3]
"We gave the Scriptures to the Israelites and bestowed on them wisdom and prophethood. We provided them with good things and exalted them above the nations".
[Qur'an: Sura 45, "Kneeling", verses 16-17]
"There is guidance, and there is light, in the Torah which We [Allah] have revealed. By it the prophets who surrendered themselves to Allah judged the Jews, and so did the rabbis and the divines; they gave judgement according to Allah's scriptures which had been committed to their keeping and to which they were witnesses".
[Qur'an: Sura 5, "The Table", verses 44-45]
