  • Jerusalem Belongs to the Jews: An Islamic Truth – Qanta Ahmed
    As a believing Muslim observing Islam, I am compelled by the Quran to support Israel’s sole claim to the Holy Land; the Quran says it is so. The Quran states: “Moses said to his people: O my people! Remember the bounty of God upon you when He bestowed prophets upon you, and made you kings and gave you that which had not been given to anyone before you amongst the nations. O my people! Enter the Holy Land which God has written for you.”
    Nowhere does the Quran make mention of the Muslims’ claim to the Holy Land. Instead, God reveals in the Quran that the Holy Land is designated for the followers of Moses. It is this Islamic truth that political Islamists vehemently deny. Dr. Qanta A. Ahmed, MD, a British-American Muslim and member of the Council on Foreign Relations, is Associate Professor of Medicine at the State University of New York (Stony Brook).(Times of Israel)
