- God gave Ishmael an inheritance. He gave Esau an inheritance. God gave Israel an inheritance. Why are Ishmael and Esau trying to remove Israel from their promised land?
- "Why are Ishmael and Esau trying to remove Israel from their promised land?"
Why are you calling Christian and Muslim Palestinians Esau and Ishmael?
- Palestinians are from Egypt, the Arabian Peninsula, etc. Most Christian and Muslim Palestinians identify as Arab. They came to the land centuries after Rome expelled Israel. The Arabs are Semites, but not Israelites. The children of Israel are traced from Abraham to Isaac to Jacob.
- MH "Palestinians are from Egypt, the Arabian Peninsula, etc."
I'd say Palestinians are from Palestine, that is from Holy Land.
Is that what you dismiss as "etc"?
"Most Christian and Muslim Palestinians identify as Arab."
So? Identifying as "Arab" does not mean tracing your genealogy to Ishmael.
It means identifying Arabic as your native language and Beduinism as at least one native (if not your own) lifestyle.
In a Protestant Bible* there are two "blessed among women", Jael and the Blessed Virgin. In the case of the Blessed Virgin, there is no limiting qualification to women, but in the case of Jael there is "who live in tents". So, Beduinism is a lifestyle possible to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I suppose that you agree Jael was as Israelite as she was Beduin. Obviously the one most blessed among all women was not a Beduin. So, the most blessed Beduin woman was Jael.
And Jael was not an Ishmaelite.
"They came to the land centuries after Rome expelled Israel."
If you mean in the invasion of Omar, no. That invasion of Omar gave Muslim Palestinians an admixture of Ishmaelites / Madianites from mid-Arabic peninsula and probably some Joctanites from South Arabic peninsula. But it did not introduce the CHRISTIAN Beduins of which SOME were forced to become Muslim.
"The Arabs are Semites, but not Israelites."
You are confusing "Arab" with "Peninsular Arab" + "Jordan Arab".
"The children of Israel are traced from Abraham to Isaac to Jacob."
Yes, I know that VERY well, and the Palestinians as much as Jael belong to that people.
By Jael, I have proven the lineage from Abraham to Isaac to Jacob can have a Beduin lifestyle. As for the Arabic language, some of Talmudic confession of that lineage have spoken a kind of German or a kind of Spanish (Yiddish, Ladino) which means that speaking a language other than Hebrew or Aramaic doesn't remove you from that lineage either.
*(In a Catholic Bible there is a third "blessed among women", Judith, who is "blessed among women of Israel" while the Blessed Virgin was of Judah).
