Origin of the Arab Nations In terms of married couples, the Arab nations can be traced back to Abram and his wife Sarai (later called Sarah), and the nation of Israel can be traced back to Isaac and his wife Rebecca. Both couples, and particularly Sarah and Rebecca, made serious mistakes. Abraham & Sarah - Ishmael Abram and Sarai were childless into old age. God had promised Abram that the covenant promises would be fulfilled through his own seed (Gen 15.4), but even in old age they had no heir. So Abraham listened to his wife and followed the custom of the day. He took her female servant Hagar (an Egyptian) as wife and she bore him a son, Ishmael (Gen 16.3). But this was not God's plan for Abraham. When Abraham asked God to bless Ishmael as a servant of God, he was told "No"! God had other plans. This separation of the blessing is crucial to the understanding of the modern-day Arab-Israeli conflict. God said: '"No, Sarah your wife will bear you a son (even though she was old), and you shall call his name Isaac; and I will establish My covenant with him (and his descendants) ... as for Ishmael (which means 'God hears'), I have heard you; ... I will bless him, and make him fruitful ... and I will make him a great nation ... but My covenant I will establish with Isaac."' (Gen 17.19-21) Here we see the birth of two great peoples; Israel and the Arab nations. But the covenant promises of blessing and the land of Canaan went with Isaac, not Ishmael. Following God's instruction, Abraham subsequently gave all that he had to Isaac (Gen 25.5), whilst, according to Gen 25.18, the sons of Ishmael (the prophesied 'twelve princes') settled from Havilah to Shur (see Fig.1). Havilah (meaning 'sandy stretch') is widely accepted to be Arabia. After Sarah died, Abraham married Keturah and gave their descendents gifts, but he sent them away from Isaac 'to the land of the east' (Gen 25.6) - again widely accepted to be Arabia. Today, various Encyclopaedias and Dictionaries state that the Arabs (Arabian tribes) claim descent from Ishmael (see also the descendants of Ishmael).

Day of muslim rage meets Israeli bullets, who is going to win that argument, but of course the US MSM will allways turn the story around in favor of the terrorist instigators.
