The descendants of Ishmael, (son of Hagar, who was handmaiden to Sarah, the wife of Abraham), where prophesied to be a numerous people, but also a people forever hostile to themselves and everyone else. Does that not describe today's radical Islamic Arab world?
These descendants of Ishmael would most of all, hate the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who are of course the Hebrew people or the Jewish nation.
Reading through the books of the Prophets of the Old Testament we see a constant refrain where at the time of the last days, Yahweh God would judge the Arab nations, (Syria, Egypt, Jordan, etc), by bringing them to ruin, but in the end, restoring a remnant of these people who would come to know Yahweh as their God, rather than the false God, Allah.
The following articles attest to the hostility the Arab/Muslim world holds towards Israel today as well as towards Israel's major supporter, America.
The angel of the LORD also said to her: "You are now with child and you will have a son. You shall name him Ishmael, for the LORD has heard of your misery. He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers." Genesis 16:11-12 NIV
In that day there will be a highway from
to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt
and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and
Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel
will be the third, along with Egypt
and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The Lord Almighty
will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt
my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel
my inheritance.” Isaiah 19:23-25 NIV
Hamas top official: Kill every last Jew and American
A senior Hamas official said in a televised sermon that he wished for the annihilation of every single Jew and American. The sermon by Sheik Ahmad Bahr, deputy speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, was broadcast earlier this month on Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV. “Oh, Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters” and “the Americans and their supporters,” he was filmed saying. “Oh, Allah, count them one by one, and kill them all, without leaving a single one.” The video was edited and translated by MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute.
Abbas Denies Jewish
and Christian Theology
The PA campaign to eradicate Jewish history at the
, as well as in the rest of Israel,
has escalated sharply in the past two years. Palestinian Media Watch (PMW)
documented and translated statements from Palestinian Authority leaders,
including Abbas, his advisor Ahmad Al-Ruweidi, clerics and ministers, all of
whom used the term "alleged Temple"
97 times in 2011 and 2012. PMW pointed out that the number 97 refers only
to the term “alleged Temple” and does not include thousands
of other denials of the existence of the First and Second Temples and
Jewish history in the rest of Israel.
Many Jewish sites, such as Rachel’s Tomb at the edge of Bethlehem and less
than a mile from Jerusalem, has been given an Arab name by the PA, whose
clerics claim it was a Muslim site - before Islam was founded.
