Many thanks for your reply on this important subject. However I would like to clarify certain misgivings that still persists after reading your response. Please correct me if I am wrong as this is an important subject of the Muslim world and one should have strong conviction while discussing this subject with people of other faith.

Indigenous population of Israel
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
first thing all must be aware of is that when the

History has also recorded that never have the muslim rulers ever committed atrocities upon their Jewish citizens as a race, wherever they might have been! In fact, the famous Jewish Author Norman Cantor in his book The Sacred Chain, A History of the Jews has time and again admitted that the golden years of the Jews were during the years of muslim rule. It has always been the pagans and then the Christians who have massaccered the Jews in History..never the muslims!
From the massacre of the Jews and the destruction of the First Jewish Temple in 586 BC at the hands of the pagan Babylonian rulers, to the destruction of the Second Jewish Temple and the mass killing of the Jews at the hands of the Roman rulers of Judea in 66-70 BC, to the destruction of the Jews in 115 AD at the hands of the Greek pagans, to the destruction of the Jews in 135 AD at the hands of the Roman Christian Rulers, to the destruction of the Jews in 410 AD, again at the hands of the Roman Christian Rulers, to the almost total destruction of the Jews in 1096 AD at the hands of the French Christian Crusaders, to the Cossack massacres of the Polish Jews in 1648, to the final annihilation and mass destruction of the Jews at the hands of Christian Germany in the 1940s it was always the pagans before the birth of Jesus Christ, and the Christians after the birth of Jesus Christ who massaccered the Jews because of their belief.. never the muslims! For almost 2000 years, the Christian Rulers have held the Jews responsible for the (so-called) killing of Jesus Christ and they are the ones who have severely persecuted the Jews for being Jews and Christ-killers! Not the muslims!

The Jews have never ruled any land for almost 2000 years.and in the fifty years that they have ruled the State of Israel, albeit illegally, they have indeed proved to be unworthy rulers.
Whatever they are doing is within the grasp of Allah Subhanah, and nothing is unknown to the All Mighty, All Wise Lord. This period has been a trying time for the muslims; and Allah Alone is enough as a Protector and a Helper of the believers.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
