Not all the members of the Arab community see Israel as a people who have plundered and stolen land from them. Many, in fact, find it hard to believe that so many do not recognize Israel as a state even though it is recognized by the United Nations; has several universities and research facilities; and of course, has a history predating Islam. Those who recognize Israel also recognize the historic right it has to the disputed lands. In fact, the Quran Chapter 21:5 states, “When Moses said to his people, ‘Oh my people, enter the holy land that Allah has destined for you.’” God destined them to have the land. The Israelites did not plunder it.
