Reading The Quran Backwards

I have selected a few verses from the Quran (Koran?) and I suggest the real meaning:


And We conveyed to the Children of Israel in the Scripture that, "You will surely cause corruption on the earth twice, and you will surely reach [a degree of] great haughtiness.

Surat Al-'Isrā' (The Night Journey) - سورة الإسراء 17:4

Ask yourselves, if we Jews caused corruption twice, is that a reference to the existence of the two Temples in Jerusalem and the two exiles, by Babylon and Rome?  After all, Solomon is mentioned.

Does that mean that to deny the Temple Mount as the site of our Temple is anti-Koranic?


And We said after Pharaoh to the Children of Israel, "Dwell in the land, and when there comes the promise of the Hereafter, We will bring you forth in [one] gathering."

Surat Al-'Isrā' (The Night Journey) - 17:104  سورة الإسراء

Ask yourselves, where is that "Land"?  Could it be the Land of Israel?  "Palestine" didn't exist then, sorry, Filastin didn't exist.
Does that mean that the Israelites really did come out of Egypt, according to the Koran, form themselves into a nation and then enter the Land of Israel, there to establish the Jewish national home, which was "reconstituted" with the major approbation of all the civilized world via the Balfour Declaration, the Versailles Peace Conference, the Weizmann-Feisal Letter, the San Remo Conference, the Mandate decision of the League of Nations and the Anglo-American Convention and the UN Partition recommendation?


O Children of Israel, remember My favor which I have bestowed upon you and fulfill My covenant [upon you] that I will fulfill your covenant [from Me], and be afraid of [only] Me.

Surat Al-Baqarah (The Cow) - 2:40  سورة البقرة

Does that mean that Jews were in a special covenental relationsip with God, one that assured them their residency rights in the Land of Israel as an eternal inheritance?

And is that strenghtened by this verse, which also resources the Torah (!):

And [recall] when We took your covenant, [O Children of Israel, to abide by the Torah] and We raised over you the mount, [saying], "Take what We have given you with determination and remember what is in it that perhaps you may become righteous."

Oh, the "Mount" is Sinai - or Moriah?

One more verse:

O Children of Israel, remember My favor which I have bestowed upon you and that I preferred you over the worlds.

Jews had preferential treatment? Do accomplish what? To be a light unto the nations? To teach the moral values of the Ten Commandments? To spread the words of the Prophets? To demonstrate how a nation can live on the Land in the proper fashion?

Please, read the Koran carefully.

It can teach you something.
