This is attested by several verses of the Qur’an (Q. 5:21, 2:47, 45:16 and 44:32)
It is shocking for Muslims to learn that, according to the Qur’an, both Allah and Mohammed, sided with Israel, although trees and stones side with Muslims!
After the dramatic events of 2007 when Hamas successfully seized control of the
Hamas maintains that the war against
…”The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Moslem). (Muslim 41.6985, similar sayings in Bukhari 4.52.176 and 177)
To know the Statute and the ultimate goal of Hamas, please refer to the Appendix at the end of this post.
Muslims are adamant that these inanimate objects will communicate to them in Arabic and will reveal the positions of the hidden Jews. The readers may rightly think that only dumb and stupid people will believe such nonsense tales. But there are millions of such Muslims around. Even the late Palestinian leader, Yassir Arafat, before his death, quoted that hadith on television. A few months ago, Aljazeera was not ashamed to broadcast a report by one of its journalists that a tree disclosed the position of a Jew to a couple of Palestinian mujahideen!!
However, ahadith are only the second source in Islam and Muslims may suddenly choose not to believe the most authenticated hadith, if that helps their agenda.
What does the Qur’an say?
Let us focus to the Qur’an, Allah’s words, and see if Allah had said anything in relevance to the Arab-Israeli conflict. Please read on and prepare yourself for a complete surprise!
When we talk about the Qur’an and the Jews, most people think of the many insulting verses in the Qur’an describing the Jews as pigs and monkeys (Q. 2:65, Q.5:60, Q.7:166) (this view is still reiteraded (here and here) nowadays by the the leading Saudi Imam al-Suddayyis, imam of Islam's most holy mosque, Al-Haram in Mecca (one of the most prestigious posts in Sunni Islam).
Those verses are Muslims’ favourite, especially, when loud speakers happen to be around. Since we are certain that the Jews are neither monkeys nor pigs, we have to assume that Allah was not serious when He revealed the above verses. It might be that Allah revealed such verses in moments of anger. This is the only way to explain the contents of many other verses, which say nice things about the Jews.
We do not know why suddenly Allah’s mood swings from one extreme to another, but most probably, this has something to do with Mohammed’s own mood at the time, and his relations with the Jewish tribes at the time of ‘revelations’. For those who are not familiar with the Qur’an, it is worth mentioning that stories of the Jews and their prophets occupy a large proportion of the Qur’an with boring repetitions. The name of Moses is the most frequently mentioned name in the Qur’an, probably mentioned more than all other prophets put together. Again, we have no explanation why Allah decided to speak repeatedly, but still briefly, and with no added information, about an issue of no relevance to our lives, such as the Jews and their prophets. This is especially true when He only touched briefly, or missed completely, on other matters of life and death.
Let us read some of what the Qur’an says about the Jews:
Allah preferred the Jews to all other ethnicities:
Q.2: 47. Children of Israel! call to mind the favour which I bestowed upon you, and that I preferred you to all others.
PS: this verse is not seen as abrogated, as it is an early Medinan Surah, however, Jews are accursed in Q. 2:29 (a former verse as 2:47, thus cannot abrogate 2:47) and Q 9:30, and so forfeit the favour Allah previously had for them (thanks to Robert Spencer of jihadwatch.org)
Allah chose the Jews above all others, a decision based on deep knowledge of everything:
Q.44: 32. And We chose them aforetime above the nations, knowingly.
Allah lists some of the privileges He gave to the Jews, which no other nation enjoys. These are: the Book, the Power, and the Prophethood. Everything Allah gives to the Jews is pure and of high quality. Allah makes it clear to every one that he favours the Jews to all other ethnicities—a real VIP treatment! Here is the proof:
Q.45: 16. We did aforetime grant to the Children of Israel the Book the Power of Command, and Prophethood; We gave them, for Sustenance, things good and pure; and We favoured them above the nations.
There are many similar verses in the Qur’an, and they all indicate clearly that Mohammed’s Allah prefers the Jews to all other nations. Is Hamas willing to treat the Jews as a preferred nation to Allah? Can Hamas accept that Allah has chosen the Jews among all other people?
Now, please read this verse from Surat Al-Maeda (sura 5):
Q 5:21. "O my people! Enter the holy land (Palestine) which Allâh has assigned to you, and turn not back (in flight) for then you will be returned as losers." (Tr. Hilali and Khan)
Q.5: 21. "O my people! Enter the holy land which God hath assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiously, for then will ye be overthrown, to your own ruin."(Yusuf Ali)
Allah repeats His assertion in 2:58:
2:58. And (remember) when We said: "Enter this town (Jerusalem) and eat bountifully therein with pleasure and delight wherever you wish, and enter the gate in prostration (or bowing with humility) and say: 'Forgive us,' and We shall forgive you your sins and shall increase (reward) for the good-doers." (Tr. Hilali and Khan)
Surprisingly, the language of the above verses is plain and simple, verse 5:21 would appropriately be translated into simple English like this:
‘ O my people! Enter the holy land (Palestine), which Allah has written for you’
The above verses are clear indications that Allah has assigned the holy land (Palestine, Jerusalem and Jericho—Jalayn and ibn Abbas) to the Jews. It is a clear statement that Allah had documented in writing in His protected tablet (Allawhul Mahfuz), presumably in the land registry section. Allah has not, at all, mentioned the Arabs, the Palestinians, or the Muslims as the inheritor of the land of Palestine. What Hamas is going to do with these verses? How can they uphold Allah’s words when they do not even recognize Israel? Logically, there are only two options for Hamas: either to recognize Israel or to denounce Islam.
Predictably, they will choose neither. As Islamists always do, they will come up with their own explanation, which has no relevance to the real meaning of the verses.
Theoretically and Qur’anically, the above verses should, on their own, settle the Arab/Israeli dispute for good. Ask Muslims about it and you get a very strange reaction. They go into a period of silence as if they hear the verses for the first time, although they probably had read it hundreds of times before, but without thinking of its significance and its relevance to our time. Then, to avoid the obvious damage, they resort to their unconvincing defence of twisting the meaning in any way they wish.
Needless to say, Muslims will be left with deep wounds when they realize that their Mohammed and his Allah have, probably unknowingly, sided with their enemy.
As said before, the Muslims’ reaction to the above verse is truly strange. However, the Jewish attitude is even stranger, as they hardly ever use it to their advantage. Bizarrely, we still think the Jews are clever!
Appendix: Aim and Statute of Hamas:
Art. 8 reveals the ultimate goal of Hamas: “
You should consider as well Art. 15 & 34, that quote ahadith and verses of the Qur’an (Q 2:20 & 3:12), where explicitly the annihilation of the Nazarens (Christians) and Jews is ordanined.
Another example: Art 11:
Art. 15: “
[Hamas is the Arabic acronym for Islamic Resistance Movement (harakat al-muqawama al-islamiyya); it is also an Arabic word meaning enthusiasm, ardor or zeal].

ALLAH chooses JEWS as the BEST NATION and ASSIGNS the HOLY LAND TO THEM
