Allah, Divine?- Chapter One, Learn the Story of Ishmael, Abraham, and the Arabs as told in the Bible and History.


Part One: The Children of Abraham


 How Lovely


Atef al-Ghamri writes in the newspaper Al-Ahram, Cairo, Egypt...

The Muslims are coming." The cry-- a rewording of the cold-war formula "the Russians are coming"-- hovers over Western public opinion. While the warning reverberates to a certain degree throughout the West, it is particularly strident in the United States. Dan Quayle warned of the "threat of Islamic Fundamentalist extremism and likened it to Nazism and Communism. In the press, dozens of articles and analyses, speak of "Islam's war against the West" and link the words "terrorism" and "Islamic Fundamentalism" as if they were synonymous.

Confronting the anti-Islam campaign is not easy. There are two ways to portray Islam. The easy way is to present it as the monolithic historical enemy of the West. The hard way is to refrain from these ready-made clichés and to engage in some sound realistic analysis. Only the second way will reveal the distortion at the core of the Western view which holds that Islam is nothing more than Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini, Libya's Muammar Qadaffi, and terrorism.

The anti-Islam campaign has political roots as well. For the West, particularly the United States, the need for an "enemy" to replace the Soviet specter is, to a large degree, an economic imperative. The specter of an enemy incites national passions that support the large defense budgets, high quotas of arms production, and military intervention abroad.

May I suggest that you set aside all but one of your pre-suppositions as you read this book. The only one which we cannot set aside is this, "The Word of God, the Bible, is the only revelation of the Truth which we can totally trust." What you have been told about man and his behavior, during your lifetime, is flawed by the motives of the ones who delivered the information to you.

I invite you to examine all of the statements in this book by God's Holy Word and the references given. I trust your conclusions far more than I trust the so-called "scholars" and "experts" who propagandize us through the media. I am also willing to hear your response if it is supported by God's Word.

Laying the 9/11 Myth to Rest

Whenever the sky is falling it must be blamed on either a Fundamentalist Muslim or a Fundamentalist Christian, right? The World Trade Center dropped in ten seconds after a very short fire. "Truthers" demand an investigation to see if it was a demolition done by some hidden hand in America. Building Seven was demolished with no explanation. Big trucks of gold bullion drove out from the basement of building seven before it was demolished, and no one knows where they went. One truck seems to have refused to start, so it was found later under the rubble.

In fact, it may be that the whole 9/11 event was an attempt, possibly successful, to rob the Islamic nation of Kuwait of its vast gold deposit under the World Trade Center in a vault. Did Kuwait get it back? We know that President George H. Bush (senior), through our ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, gave Saddam Hussein implied consent to invade Kuwait. And, Bush withheld assistance to the Kuwaitis until Iraq had raped the city and were ready to return to Baghdad.

But no, 9/11 had to be only the work of Muslims according to official media and government sources. The truth will obviously never be known. All high officials of the world refuse to talk about it. This author used to pass the pilot school where the Arabs who flew the planes were allegedly trained. The school is for small aircraft pilot training. Later, they attempted to learn to fly commercial airplanes, and were encouraged by trainers to give it up because they were incompetent and poor learners. To imagine that the two planes flown into the World Trade Center, banking sharply just before impact, could have been so masterfully flown with such limited flight training is for only for the gullible to believe. I do not believe it.

I tell you this because it is 9/11 which sent America into Arab/Muslim phobia. Islam has been horribly violent since Muhammed first went forth to conquer in the late 600s AD. It seems that an event staged by some very UN-Muslim characters is the modern foundation of sentiment against Islam. The actual history of Islamic violence is lost on this generation. The truth cannot be known, and knowing the truth would probably demoralize America irreparably, but 9/11 will never be the context for defining Islam by this author.


Isaac's Older Brother

God and history are much gentler with the Arabs than we are, so we open the Bible to see how Jehovah loved Ishmael, who was one of the biblical descendants of father Abraham-- the father of the Arab people.

Before we look at the origin of the Arab people I hear a question. You ask, "why start with the Arabs?" Answer: Islam claims that its roots start with Abraham and his oldest son, Ishmael, then those roots come down through Moses and the Old Testament, through the "prophet" Jesus, to arrive in the last prophet Muhammed and Mecca in 625 AD. Also, the Koran is an Arabic book in its pure form, and wherever Islam goes the Arab mystique goes and conquers culturally. One third of the world's Arabs, 247 tribes, live in North Africa alone and speak Arabic and French.     (FOOTNOTE 2:  57 / 56 / 1698; 104 / 5 / 212) Indeed, "Arabia," in rather large numbers, extends as far as Dearborn, Michigan and Birmingham, England.


Who is an Arab?

First, the Arab of the Bible is a descendent of Abraham and Ishmael in northern Arabia or of Joktan in southern Arabia. Joktan was the great-great-great granduncle of Abraham. The Arabs briefly ruled Egypt, but they have never themselves been invaded or diluted since ancient times.     (FOOTNOTE 3:  160 / 90-92 / 1767-1768) So the Arabs are as Semitic as any Jew, and the southern Arabs are descended from a line closer to Shem than the Jews.  (FOOTNOTE 4: Genesis 10:22-31; I Chronicles 1:18-27) Arab bashing is as antisemitic as Jew bashing since both Isaac and his older brother Ishmael descended from Abraham and Shem, father of all Semitic people! In chapter two we will show that the Arabs are still largely Ishmaelites.

Enter Ishmael

We find that the Bible gives the best account of the beginning of the Arab people. The following is from Genesis 16:1-16 in the King James Bible, the only Bible used in this book. Please read carefully, and refer back to this Bible text during the following discussion. The alphabetical letters in parenthesis are the outline for the discussion to follow:

Genesis 16:1-16, Now Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, [ a ] an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai. And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.

Abram was Abraham's name before God changed it to Abraham.

[ b ] And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes. And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the LORD judge between me and thee. But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thine hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face.  [ c ] And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur. And he said, Hagar, Sarai's maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai. And the angel of the LORD said unto her, [ d ] Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.

And the angel of the LORD said unto her, [ e ] I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child and shalt bear a son, [ f ] and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. And [ g ] he will be a wild man; [ h ] his hand will be against every man, [ i ] and every man's hand against him; [ j ] and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren. [ k ] And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that seeth me? Wherefore the well was called Beerlahairoi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered. [ l ] And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son's name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael. And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram.

Now we discuss the text in detail:  

[ a ] "An Egyptian whose name was Hagar"  The mother of the Arabs is an Egyptian. But, according to the Bible, the blood line is decided by the father, as can be seen in all of the genealogies of the Bible, and in the blood line of The Lord Jesus Christ, He is Lord. The modern notion promoted by Zionists, that the mother decides Jewishness, is a very recent attempt to avoid the lost genealogies of Jewishness through the father which destroys a Jew's claim to the land or to the priesthood according to the Old Testament (see the Bible, Ezra). So, Ishmael is solidly Semitic in father Abraham, and the Arabs have every right to this distinction.

[ b ] "And he (Abraham) went in unto Hagar, and she conceived"  Abraham did not break the law of the land when he took Hagar from Sarai. The code of Hammurabi allowed for this, and that was the civil law under which Abraham lived. Islamic law would permit this also according to Muhammed's example of using concubines, but God had instituted a higher law. The first man Adam had verbally given the doctrine of marriage when God gave Adam his wife named Eve:

Adam said in The Bible, Genesis 2:23-24, ...This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

In Matthew 19:5 Jesus quoted Adam and said that the two (not 11 as with Muhammed) shall become one flesh. So Abraham violated this doctrine and had a son by Hagar, and the jealousy which followed was exceeded only by the jealousy among the wives of Muhammed 2500 years later! (FOOTNOTE 5:  34 / 172 / 35; 133 / 280-283 / 1489-1490; Koran 33:37; also vs. 50-51) God showed mercy on Abraham and did not punish him, but because God wanted his plan followed, he told Abraham to start over again and have a son by Sarai, his "one flesh" wife.  

[ c ] "The angel of the Lord found her (Hagar)"  The Lord Jesus Christ, He is Lord, is known as the angel of the Lord in the Old Testament. He appeared to the mother of the Arab race to stop her from fleeing. Why go back to Abraham's tents?  

[ d ] "Return to thy mistress..."  Jehovah God wanted Ishmael to have in his body the same mark of anointing that every Jew would have-- circumcision:


Page 16

Genesis 17:23-26, And Abraham (God changed his name) took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham's house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him. And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. In the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his son.

Since Ishmael was thirteen years old, we could say that he was circumcised on his Bar-mitzvah. We also know that if Abraham, who was a righteous man, would circumcise Ishmael, he would certainly tell him who Jehovah was and how to worship Him. Later in the book you will realize that Ishmael also left Abraham with God's true name on him and in his mouth.  

[ e ] Ishmael's "seed (descendants)... shall not be numbered for multitude"  God promised Hagar that Ishmael's Arab race would multiply beyond counting. This is true to this day, 2500 years later, with the whole of the Middle East and North Africa being Arabized. In the Middle East, only Israel is not Arab! If this had not happened, God would be a liar. Pity the small souls who try to say that the Arabs of today are some hybrid from elsewhere. These writers have opened debate with God. They ought to read their Bible instead of Mother Goose. (See Appendix No. One.)

[ f ] "...thou... shalt call his name Ishmael"  Ishmael was named by God! His name means "Elohim hears" or "God hears." There were only about 20 men in the Bible who were named by God, and Ishmael is a beautiful name. It is a name of mercy, and it is NOT "Ishma'allah".

Dear reader, you might as well know where we are headed. Allah was not the name that was in Abraham's or Ishmael's mouth. "El" was in the first Arab's name, Ishma-EL, and only a few of the patriarchs of Israel, such as Eli, Elijah. Elisha, and Samu-el, could boast of that distinction.

So, it is the height of anti-Semitism for an Aryan American or mongrel Zionist Germanic Jew to attack the Arabs as if they are alien to the Jewish world. If you get an old book about Palestine from the library, one with the steel block etchings, you will see that in older times the Jews and Arabs looked very much alike. This is not so today.  Many of the modern Jews from Europe, or Zionists, look like Aryans and the white race. More later on them. (FOOTNOTE 6: 157 / 140-152 / 1883-1890; The New Jewish Encyclopedia, Behrman House, 1962 Browse through this book looking at the Jews from Europe, then turn to p. 483 and look at the Yemenite Jews. They look like Arabs. The Jews of Europe are 2500 years [and a lot of mixed blood] removed from Israel.)

In the photo at the right you see Yemenite Jews from about 1949. Do they look like Arabs? The fact is, these are possibly the purest Jews in the world, for they proudly claim to have never compromised their blood line with any Gentile or alien blood. These Jews look like the Jews of David's day and would look very familiar to father Abraham.

[ g ] "and he (Ishmael) will be a wild man"  The modern Bible versions prefer "wild ass" or "donkey." There is no justification for this except in the mind of anti-Semitic Bible mutilators who are really thinking "jack-ass." This is why we only use the King James Bible. It is the Bible that loves Arabs, Jews, and all men in the name of Jesus, He is Lord.


 Page 17

Arabs are "wild" in that they cannot be tamed. To many ancient and modern Arabs, war and fighting is good recreation. It may be fierce in the morning, and by evening all participants will sit down to coffee. We in the white race could learn to get over our wars so quickly. Of course, the Saladins and Osama bin Ladens of the ages make it easy to tag Arabs with a violent nature, but this Bible text is not speaking of that.

Arabs even find ways to go to war without really trying to kill anyone. (FOOTNOTE 7:  103 / 18-19 / 1684)  Those who have studied the Middle East know that an Arab can be very loyal to his friends and show gracious hospitality in a way unknown in the West, but don't try to overpower him or subject him. You will suffer for it, even if his grandson has to even the score many years later. World leaders who wage war on Arabs must be very careful from then on for double crossing Saddam Hussein, Ghadaffi, and other Arab leaders. Even as the US caught Saddam Hussein, his followers were killing US soldiers in the streets by stealth, and this will never end. Ishmael was the untamable father of this "wild" trait that Arabs have guarded for 3000 years. In our judgment of "wild" Arabs, let us not forget our jolly Anglo Saxon history. Our forefathers were not always quite as gentle as the Oxford club would have us to believe!

[ h ] "His hand will be against every man"  The Arabs have a proverb, "I and my brothers and my cousins against the stranger; I and my brothers against my cousin; I, against my brothers." Living in the deserts of Arabia for all those years required the Arab to be strong in self-defense. There were no police, so justice was, and still is, by revenge. To forgo revenge would mean to be a coward and lose authority in one's acre, and the whole of Arabia is every Arab's acre to claim if he can take it. The royal family of Saudi Arabia is simply a 1990s version of some ordinary wandering Bedhoin, the Bani Saud, who rode out of the past and who conquered best. Anwar Sadat found out the hard way, as did King Faisal, that Arabs still don't like to be humbled, even by each other. This is also why the Arab always extends the right hand to serve or greet his guests in order to show that he has no malice.

[ i ] "Every man's hand is against him (the Arabs)"  No empire has ever successfully subjected the Arabs. The Persians had a brief hold on Saba (south Arabia) but lost it quickly. Rommel, the German WW II commander, known as "the desert fox," found out that the Arabs win in the end. Germany left no trace of their time in North Africa except hulks of rusting tanks and Duesenburgs buried in the sands of the Sahara Desert.

The British tried to conquer Egypt, and the result was that Arabia conquered England. How?  Emin Pasha was supposed to be German, but he became so Arabized that no Europeans could be certain of his loyalties. The Englishman, Lawrence of Arabia, turned Arab to the core, and today Islam is conquering Great Britain where they have made many converts to Islam and built the world's second grandest mosque. I say old man, who conquers whom?


Page 18

The crusaders of the Roman Catholic Church learned how it feels to get whipped by Muslims when the Turks took back what the Pope took from them. (FOOTNOTE8 :  Mediaeval and Modern History, Philip Van Ness Myers, Ginn & Co, 1885, p. 121-146, 164, 168.) During Desert Storm, the US Military found out how silly an Arab can make you look when they bombed 200 of Saddam Hussein's plastic decoy scud missiles. US intelligence also had quite a time trying to figure out which of the five Saddams was the real one. (Inside information from Arab friends) These facts seem to have been lost after the capture of Saddam by George Junior.

Islam has also shown us the zeal of the Arab to survive in its doctrine of Jihad, or holy war. Some have called Jihad the sixth pillar of Islam, but this trait of the Arabs, which was plagiarized by Muhammed in 625 AD as a doctrine of Islam, was prophesied by Jehovah in 2500 BC to Hagar.

[ j ] "He shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren"  The "ALL" clearly means that Isaac will be permanently a neighbor to Ishmael, modern Arab bashers notwithstanding! It is appalling to hear the slur "sand nigger" coming from those who claimed that they rescued Kuwait during Desert Storm. One white racist, Pastor N__ in Detroit, told me that I would have to just get used to this prejudice. Well, I won't, nor should he, and shame on any Christian who will not resist this openly.

We mentioned Joktan earlier. It is sometimes hard today to be certain if an Arab is descended from Joktan or Ishmael, but there is no doubt about Arabness. Joktan had thirteen sons, Ishmael had twelve, and Jacob had twelve. It seems that Jehovah was dividing up these families to be sure they shared the Semitic acres He assigned to them.

I hear you Bible "scholars." Yes, God gave the covenanted land to Abraham, but God never allowed the Jews to conquer or destroy the Ishmaelites. The fact is, they lived together very well. When Abraham died, Isaac and Ishmael had no trouble burying their father in family unity, (Genesis 25:8-9).  David's camel herder was an Ishmaelite, (I Chronicles 27:39.) Also, Arabs, the Rechabites, who were faithful to the teachings of their father, Jonadab, refused to drink wine and were used by Jehovah as a model of faithfulness and as an accusation against Judah (Jeremiah 35).

In recent centuries Jews and Arabs have lived together and gotten along very well for long periods.  The present history of Israel has changed this, but in Baghdad, Jews used to pass dishes across the street to their Arab neighbors on Yom Kippur, while Arab Muslims sent food to their Jewish neighbors on the Muslim festival, Eid.

In the 1922 photo at the right you see King Abdulla Ibn Hussein of Transjordan sits under the watchful eyes of his Jewish bodyguards, Habani Yemenite brothers Sayeed, Salaah, and Saadia Sofer (notice Safeed's especially long sidecurls, left), uncles of today's Abir Aluf, Grandmaster Yehoshua Sofer.


Page 19

During 700 to 900 AD, the Muslim Sheik of Baghdad and the Jewish Exilarch would spend long evenings drinking coffee and discussing Jewish and Islamic theology. This was also true in Palestine up to 1947 when real Jews were "convinced" by European Zionist terrorists to drop these courtesies to Arabs.  

The Jewish and Arab tolerance for each other is seen in the northern suburbs of Detroit, Michigan where you find the Arabs in Southfield right next to the Jews in Royal Oak, and there is a lot more tolerance than the media portrays. Again, the talking heads of TV give you all of your pictures from the heat of the intifada struggle in Israel. For many years a Jew dominated the trade in Taima, a town and Oasis in northern Arabia which was named for its founder, Tema, a son of Ishmael. But they didn't have TV back then, so we missed that one!

[ k ] "she (Hagar) called the name of the Lord... thou God seest me"  Hagar gave the name of Jehovah to a place in Israel, Beerlahairoi. Again, this shows that the events of Abraham's life include the Arabs without any reservations by God. If God was angry at Hagar and Ishmael He certainly wouldn't tolerate this Egyptian girl using his name so freely. Get used to it, God has never been mad at the Arabs! Jesus died for them and delights to see an Arab repent and be converted.

[ l ] "Hagar bare Abram a son (Ishmael)"  Ishmael was the elder brother of Isaac, yet today the Arabs are pictured by Zionists as the rotten little brats of the Middle East. When the Euro-Zionists came into Palestine they killed off whole villages of Arabs who never resisted. Zionists told the Arabs they would be safe if they abandoned their homes and lived in the hills, then they killed the Arabs before they got out of town. (FOOTNOTE 9:  19 / 36-53 / shelf )

Today these Zionists tell gullible Baptist preachers who visit Israel that Zionist Jews planted the 200 year old orchards in Israel. These preachers come back to their churches in Lynchburg, Virginia with a case of the warm fuzzies, repeat the lies the Israeli tour guides told them, and say such stupid things as, "I am a Zionist." Beware of the talking heads who took a guided tour to Israel.

The explanation for the Zionist brutality, and the Intifada it inspired, is that Satan is trying to inspire both Jews and Arabs to self-destruct so that Messiah Jesus Christ cannot restore these two families in His coming kingdom. More about this later. Satan is also using the United States to fuel this horror by arming both sides, and it appears that the new Boogie man to replace the USSR will be the Arabs of the Middle East. The destruction of the World Trade Center brought fierce ungodly hate into the hearts of American Christians. This new lust for blood is now used by a former drunk from Texas to drive the USA into a massive war and hate fest which will kill (indeed, has killed) many innocent Arabs who are caught up in the crossfire. It was not always this way in the past.

Before we go on to God's promises to Abraham you might be interested to learn how an Arab determines if he is a true Arab.

First, he must speak Arabic. This may be classical Arabic or some clan tongue, but it is essential. The exception would be second generation Arab children of immigrants living outside of the Middle East.


Page 20

Second, a true Arab must have been brought up in an Arab culture, even if it is transplanted to Dearborn, Michigan or Birmingham, England.

Third, he must live in an Arab country or enclave in another country.

Fourth, He must believe in Muhammed's teachings. The exception is the Arab Catholic, such as Tariq Aziz in the Iraqi government, Coptic Christians in Egypt, and Palestinian "Christians" who are considered Arabs.

Fifth, he must cherish the mystique of the Arabia of the past and the notion of "the Arab Nation" now.

Sixth, he must have a prejudiced preference for members of other Arab nations. He must defend Arabs of all origins. This shows up clearly in the disdain that Arabs have for Iranians and Black Muslims, in spite of the fact that they are Muslims.

Exceptions to the above rules can be made, but if one falls down in two or three points, then one is seen by Arabs as not truly an Arab. (FOOTNOTE 10:  121 / 13 / 1708)

There have even been a few whites, like Lawrence of Arabia and Emin Pasha, who dissolved so well into Arabness that they were considered Arab by their Arab friends, but they had to be in Arab lands to experience this.


"O that Ishmael might live before thee"

We now look at God's promises to Abraham for Ishmael. All of us would do well to notice how Abraham and God loved Ishmael, the father of the Arabs:

Genesis 17:18-21, And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee! [ a ] And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: [ b ] and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him. [ c ] And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and [ d ] will make him fruitful, [ e ] and will multiply him exceedingly; [ f ] twelve princes shall he beget, [ g ] and I will make him a great nation. But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

Now, we discuss the text in detail:

O that Ishmael might live before thee! Only a stupid bigot, who raises his hate mongering above his love of the Word of God, would miss the point here. Abraham loved Ishmael. So far, this was all the children he had. Ishmael looked to Abraham like a good candidate for the mercy and blessing of God. Abraham may have spent many an evening sitting in the front of his tent cuddling little Ishmael, and the boy had won his Daddy's heart. Why not bless him, God?

[ a ] "And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son..."  The father of the Jews had only one son at this point. He loved Ishmael, and he hoped that he had gotten the promised son of the covenant. But, he used a human rather than holy method, so God could not give Ishmael the covenant.


Page 21

[ b ] "I will establish my covenant with him (Isaac) for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him."  God chose Isaac to receive the covenant or promise. This is a promise of heritage, real estate, and Messianic promise. We all have to learn to live where God has put us, but you Arab readers, along with your Jewish half-brothers, still have, from God, a more glorious promise of the future than the rest of the world! It is amazing how the two half-brothers have come to hate one another so much in our day. No other nations on earth has a place equal to that of the Jews and the Arabs, and that under the oath of Jehovah God. I believe that Satan accomplished, through the hate of Islam and Muhammed, a great wicked victory in that Satan caused these two Semitic peoples to look in hate at each other, rather than to rejoice in the special place they may look for in the promises of Jehovah.

[ c ] "As for Ishmael... I have blessed him."  God agreed to bless Ishmael. Islamic revisionist writers have reversed this to make Ishmael the one to receive the covenant. This is clearly absurd when we remember that Jesus, who offered the kingdom to Israel, was a Jew, and there is no Arab Madhi, or Messiah, in the Bible as claimed in the Koran. How had God blessed Ishmael? He speaks in the present perfect tense as though it is accomplished.

First, in God's sovereignty, He had determined this from eternity past because He predestined all things.

Second, God had blessed Ishmael for Hagar's sake, as we read earlier. God elected to respond to Hagar BEFORE he responded to Abraham.  Please read that again-- you who think God hates Arabs.

[ d ] "I... will make him fruitful"  The Arabs have given much to the world. While the white hordes of Europe were heaving up great blocks of stone at Stonehenge in honor of evil spirits, the Arabs were developing medicine and a mathematics system which later made an antique of the Roman system.

This was the math base for the recent industrial and computer revolution. The Arabs were great artists when the greatest art talent of the white race was snorting sour beer in Bavaria. The great Jewish writers of the Middle Ages who lived in Spain wrote in Arabic because it was the language of culture in Spain. The Jewish scholar, Moses Maimonides, did most of his writing in Arabic.

The Arabs brought the world coffee, and God gave them 70% of the world's oil. Is it not peculiar how the world consumes and begs for their oil while they gripe about the Arabs getting rich off of them? White supremacists just cannot bear to enrich these fruitful Ishmaelites.

Dr. Fakouri, Director of the International Institute in Detroit, had prepared for me a grand tour of the Arab community one day, and what hospitality her people showed to me!  She pointed out that the zero did not exist in the world until the Arabs developed it. Without the zero, modern math would be impossible, and the lack of binary math would totally prevent the use of the computer. We Americans could not all live in debt if we had no zero to tell us when we had crossed from credit to a debit, right? Also, we would never get a rocket to the moon. 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1- ??

So, you see, the talking heads had you in fits over the Arabs. In fact, the Arabs are very much in the interest of Jehovah who fulfills prophecy in them to this hour. Their fruitfulness has blessed us all.

[ e ] "I... will multiply him (Ishmael) exceedingly."  From this small start in Genesis 17 we see that the Arab world has expanded to cover twentyone nations today from the Iranian border (Iran is not Semitic but Aryan or white race) to Morocco and from Lebanon to Djibouti in the Horn of Africa. Because of Islam, Arabization reaches out to the Philippine Islands, Indonesia, China, Zanzibar, Liverpool, and New York City.


Page 22

[ f ] Twelve princes shall he beget"  The twelve princes of Ishmael balance the twelve sons of Jacob. Familywise, neither Arab nor Jew is superior, and it is obvious that God did this on purpose. The covenant of God for the Jews is not because of them, rather; it is in spite of them and because they were a small people (Deuteronomy 7:7). Several of Ishmael's twelve princes are with us to this day in tribal and place names in northern Arabia.

Let us look at the Arab genealogy found in the Bible, Genesis 25:13 - 16, And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam, and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa, Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah: These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations.

Nebajoth, father of the Nabataeans, settled in northern Arabia. Arabs conquered Egypt as the "Shepherd Kings," where God used them to sustain Jacob and the Jews in Goshen, and they have remained in northern Arabia ever since. It was Hamites, not Arabs, who ran the Arab kings out of Egypt, and then they turned in hate on the Hebrews in Goshen. In the next chapter we see how Nebajoth shows up at Messiah's altar in the future kingdom with his brother Kedar.  Dumah has been a town or settled area for all these centuries. Tema settled in the biggest oasis in Arabia, now called Taima. It is still thriving, and it figures very importantly in the Great Tribulation and in the plans of the coming of Messiah. Bible study reveals much more about these twelve sons and their place in history.

[ g ] "I will make him a great nation."  As the Jews are a nation of twelve tribes, the Arabs are also a nation of twelve tribes, in the Old Testament, today, and in Messiah's Kingdom. Are Ishmael's people still a "nation?" If not, God lied. Anyone who has studied the Arab mind and politics knows that all of the Arab national leaders expound on and on about "The Arab Nation." No other group of nations talks this way. Shut off from the outside world by the sea and the peril of the desert around them, the Arabs are the purest race in the world, even purer than the Jews, many of whom have blond hair and blue eyes. (FOOTNOTE 11:   160 / 90 / 1768)

To illustrate their retention of national heritage from ancient roots and customs, Arab hospitality resembles father Abraham's hospitality much better than that of the Jews of today. Why? The Arabs did not spend 2500 years living with war loving Germans like the Zionist Jews did. (FOOTNOTE 12:  63 / 7698 / 763; Genesis 18)

This prophecy that Ishmael would be a nation explains the obsession Arabs have today for unity as "the Arab nation." (FOOTNOTE 13:  121 / 204-206 / shelf) There are always two or three Arab leaders who are convinced that they are Allah's choice to lead the "Arab nation." Whether the Caliph or Saladin in the past, along with the great Sultan of Oman, or, more recently, Nasser, Arafat, Ghadaffi, the Ayatollah (a white man), Assad, or Saddam Hussein, it never quite seems to happen.

But, the Arabs continue to dream of one big nation from Baghdad to Morocco and Khartoum to Beirut. The presence of Israel now adds focus to this, but "the Arab nation" is not based in Jew hatred as promoted by modern propaganda. Long ago, God told Abraham that Ishmael would think this way. Prophecy fulfilled is so encouraging to the Bible believer. Does this help you to believe Jehovah loves the Arabs, and that He keeps His promises for thousands of years? Dear Arab and Muslim friend, Al Koran has no such encouragement for you. Only the God of Abraham and his true Bible believers are the friends of the Arabs and the Jews without prejudice.

I must say here that the Jews need to look at this prophecy of God's preservation of the Arab descendants of Ishmael. This fulfilled promise should encourage a Jew to realize that the same God who preserved Ishmael all these centuries will also preserve the Jews and send them their Messiah to reign in glory for a thousand years. How sad that the religion of modern Judaism is so preoccupied with the details of pride and self-love that they don't even look for the Messiah anymore.


In conclusion:

It is peculiar how people both love and hate the Arabs. These wild people from Arabia can put a theatre patron into a goggle eyed swoon when the plot involves Arab sheiks on swift camels rescuing fair damsels. The riderless camel goes from ugly to romantic if an Arab is perched on top. So, there is something very uncivilized about two Massachusetts Liberals discussing how to control the Middle East while they sip Arab coffee and stand on an imported Arab rug.

We note that certain alleged Christian scholars make claims in their books that God is finished with the Arabs and that the modern Arabs are not the descendants of Ishmael. This shows that these scholars are misguided and lazy, for the evidence is in the Bible and in historic writings. This is discussed in Appendix No. One.

I now invite you to learn the promise of the future to any Arab who will repent of his sin and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, Yitha, He is Lord. (FOOTNOTE 14:  I use "Yitha" as the Arab name of Jesus because "Isa" is a pagan name from Syria which Muhammed picked up in his travels. Isa had also become the name of the primal Hindu cult, the Isa Upanishads in about 700 BC. We will discuss this more in Chapter Twenty Two. "Yitha" is the spiritual and Arabic equivalent of "Yeshua", the Hebrew. ) Muhammed gave no prophecies or hope in the Koran concerning the future of Arabs with their Messiah. Muhammed's Madhi, the Islamic Messiah, would come back as an Arab and die. Rather; the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back to restore both of Abraham's sons, Ishmael and Isaac, to their ancient family heritage just as He promised.
