Peace be upon you,
This message is for those who claim to be the children of Israel and are supporting the evil being perpetrated by the state of Israel upon the Palestinian people. Remember your covenant with God:
And when We took your agreement and raised the mount above you: “Hold fast what We have given you, and remember what is therein, that you might be in prudent fear.”The Qur’an: A Complete Revelation (2:63)
According to the U.N., roughly 6,400 Palestinians and 300 Israelis have been killed in the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel since 2008. 1 This is, of course, discounting the current escalation of violence. Is this upholding your covenant to hold fast to the Torah, to God’s commandment to take a life for a life?
And We prescribed for them therein a life for a life, and an eye for an eye, and a nose for a nose, and an ear for an ear, and a tooth for a tooth, and for wounds just requital; but whoso forgives it by way of charity, it is an expiation for him. And whoso judges not by what God has sent down: it is they who are the wrongdoers.The Qur’an: A Complete Revelation (5:45)
Have you not shed enough blood already? Remember what God prescribed for you:
For that cause We prescribed for the children of Israel that whoso takes a life other than for a life or corruption in the land, it will be as if he killed mankind altogether; (and whoso gives life, it will be as if he gave life to mankind altogether — and Our messengers came to them with clear signs, then many of them after that are committers of excess in the earth — )The Qur’an: A Complete Revelation (5:32)
Will you support those who break God’s covenant? Then, know, that you stand with those who will be the losers in this life and the Hereafter.
Those who break the covenant with God after its agreement, and sever what God commanded to be joined, and work corruption in the land; it is they who are the losers.The Qur’an: A Complete Revelation (2:27)
