The Washington Free Beacon: King Salman, Saudi Arabia’s newly crowned monarch, has a controversial history of helping to fund radical terror groups and has maintained ties with several anti-Semitic Muslim clerics known for advocating radical positions, according to reports and regional experts.
Salman has worked closely with Saleh al-Moghamsy, who tweeted in August 2014 that “Allah only gathered Jews in the land of Palestine to destroy them.”
Al-Moghamsy also stated in a 2014 television interview that “the hatred of Jews toward Muslims is an eternal hatred.” He also claimed in 2012 that Osama bin Laden had died with more “sanctity and honor” than any infidel, or non-Muslim.
Opinion: Al-Moghamsy has it exactly backward; it is the Arab hatred towards the Jew that is an eternal hatred that began 4000 years ago.
The birth of Ishmael:
“Now God had promised Abraham and Sarah a son. Sarah, thinking that she was too old to bear a child, prompted Abraham to sleep with her handmaiden to help God’s promise come to pass. Ishmael, Abraham’s son with the Egyptian handmaiden Hagar, was thirteen years old when Abraham circumcised him. Abraham obeyed God and circumcised his whole household on that very day, and “because Ishmael kept the covenant, God promised to make him a great nation” Gen. 21:18.
Ishmael and Hagar are banished to the desert:
When Isaac grew up, quarrels broke out between him and Ishmael, on account of the rights of the first-born. Ishmael insisted he should receive a double portion of the inheritance after the death of Abraham, and Isaac should receive only one portion.
Furthermore, Sarah insisted that Abraham divorce himself from Hagar, the mother of Ishmael, and send away the woman and her son so that there be naught in common between them and her own son, either in this world or in the future world.
Of all the trials Abraham had to undergo, none was so hard to bear as this, for it grieved him sorely to separate himself from his son. God appeared to him in the following night, and said to him: “Abraham, knowest thou not that Sarah was appointed to be thy wife from her mother’s womb? She is thy companion and the wife of thy youth, and I named not Hagar as thy wife, nor Sarah as thy bondwoman.”
God told Abraham to listen to Sarah because it was through Isaac that God’s promises would be fulfilled. God also promised him that Ishmael would be blessed and a great nation would come from him, despite God’s warning that “he shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren” Gen. 16:12.
Two Arab Bloodlines:
All Arabs have Jewish roots through Abraham by:
· Ishmael, illegitimate son of Abraham and Hagar (Sarah’s Egyptian servant)
· Esau, Isaac’s son, who married outside the family line
The seeds of resentment are apparent in the descendants of Ishmael towards the descendants of Isaac today. Islam claims its roots in Ishmael, as he was the eldest son of Abraham and the ancestor of the prophet Muhammad. Islam teaches that it was Ishmael who was to be sacrificed on Mount Moriah, not Isaac.
Ishmael was sent east of the family to the Arabian Peninsula, which today is Saudi Arabia.
