Do the Arab Muslims/Palestinians have the same rights to the land of Israel as the Jews?
Abraham sent Egyptian woman Hagar
and their son, Ishmael away
The Arab and Muslim people [Palestinians] do not have the same inheritance as promised to Abraham and Isaac; God said: “For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed forever. And I will establish My covenant between Me and thee [and wife Sarah] and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.” Gen 13:15; Gen 17:7
Most of the Arab/Muslim peoples are descendants of Abraham and the Egyptian maid, Hagar; their offspring … great – great … grand-daddy, Ishmael:
“And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmaela; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. 12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” Gen 16:11
“Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom
Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s handmaid, bare unto Abraham: And these
are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to
their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael … “ Gen 25:12-13
The centuries old hostilities between Israel and Moab/Ammon (descendents of Lot, Abraham's nephew), Israel and Canaan/Philistia (no relation to Abraham), Israel and Amalek (descendants of Esau), and Israel and Esau/Edom (descendant of Isaac). The major wars with Assyria and Babylon would have involved SOME Ishmaelites, but those nations were pre-Abrahamic in origin and of mixed nationalities by the time of the wars with Judah and Israel. Some of the Midianites are associated with Ishmaelites (as Bedouins) in the OT [they were decendents of Abraham by Keturah, so they would be 'brethern' of Ishmael also], so there is SOME hositily (e.g, the Midianites that Gideon fought were said to be Ishmaelites and Psalm 83 lists them as being in league with all the other enemies of Israel (long before there was Islam, obviously!), but it is minute in comparison to other peoples.
