  • Muslim Scholar Reveals: Jerusalem Belongs to Jews

    Warning: Prof. Palazzi is very selective (and very disarming) in his quotations from the Koran and Sharia. If Islam were all that he says it is, then we may as well trash the works of Bernard Lewis, G. E. Von Grunebaum, and many other Arabist scholars. Indeed, a survey of Muslim writers confirms Lewis description of Islam as a militant creed from its very inception. Winston Churchill, an historian in his own right, called the Koran "the Mein Kampf of war."

    Islamic history and the response of the Arab street and of Muslim clerics to the September 11 disaster clashes with Palazzi's revisionist view of Islam. Are all these Muslims the innocent victims of a misunderstanding of their own religion?

    One should wonder why Prof. Palazzi's apologetic view of Islam finds such eager readers and listeners? Perhaps they cannot face the horror of unadulterated Islam, its hatred of the West and the evil it has now unleashed on the world. Palazzi's soft view of Islam softens Jews and diminishes firm and intelligent commitment to the eradication of Islamic terrorism.

    True, one finds in the Koran suras favorable to Jewish sovereignty over the Land of Israel, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. But one also finds in theKoran and in Islamic law hatred and contempt of Jews and commitment to their eradication. This is not mere a problem of literary interpretation: Muslims are engaged in war and in insurrectionary violence through the world. The eruption of Islamic violence is rooted in Islam itself or what Prof. Lewis calls "classical" Islam. But one must also bear in mind the

    overweening pride of the Arab/ Muslim masses on the one hand, and their contempt for "infidels" on the other.

    Finally, Palazzi's view of Islam can only disarm Israel and prompt Israelis to believe that peaceful co-existence is possible with its Arab neighbors.

    'Tis a short step from Palazzi to Peres!

    Hence Prof. Palazzi presents a most tendentious view of Islam, to put it kindly. Therefore, one should ask him why he does not cite Koranic and other sources that distinguish Islam's origin and history. That Islamic clerics in Iran do not denounce him as they did Salomon Rushdie is understandable: he paints Islam white.
