The original inhabitants of India are the people of indigenous Dravidian stock.

The Aryas came into India much later.

The validity and superiority of a scripture are judged on the basis of its contents and not on the language of its revelation.

It seems to me that the article conflicted with your ideology, therefore you are making excuses
Jews don't "select" Israel, its our origin - the same way your origin is in India. I dont know why you cant grasp that - the author sure did.
There is no restriction on your "views".

Jews did select Isreal, because they had no presence there and then they were gathered from all four corners of the world and settled there.

If my forefathers left India and settled in some other country, I do not get a "right" to claim my inheritance in India after say 2000 years.

What type of logic is this?

And why only Jews?

Only those of Middle Eastern ancestry, irrespective of the religion they follow, can be considered the original inhabitants of the Palestine region.

Straw argument - I never said only Jews.

And Jews have lived in Israel continuously. GO back and study your history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_Jews

And learn what mizrahi means.

Interestingly enough, many moslems in Israel (the ones that descent from the lineages that were there BEFORE the Ottomans) are descendants of Palestinian Jews. There have been genetic studies that support this.

There is room in the region for all groups, as long as they play well with each other. The problem is, is that more often than not, they don't. Political Islam and some of the extreme Jewish movements dont make this any easier.

MUQ claims he is not part of the political Islam movement - he doesnt believe in religious mandated geography - but if you look at his argument for more than a moment it is obvious he does buy into it.

The Hebrews were foreigners in the Middle East and when they arrived in the region about 3 millennia ago there was a lot of borrowing done by the Hebrews from the older native cultures in terms of theology, occult practices, beliefs, rituals and the like and I guess quite a bit of inter-marrying, too, must have taken place.

So, many Hebrews and Muslims can trace their ancestry to the older Middle Eastern cultures.

True. This is because both the Jews and the Muslims have parochial mindsets given their sectarian or cultish beliefs and besides Israel and the Islamic nations in the region are theocracies and this makes friction between the two camps inevitable.

I know much more about the reality than most of the prophets like Jesus, Moses, Abraham, Rama, Muhammad and the like.

Only the deeper experiences of the reality remain to be undertaken in my case.

The Jewish cult is tottering and is on its last legs.

Anyway which sane and civilized person would want a cult based on demon worship, whose contribution to the march of civilization is zero, in existence except evil people?

Right?

Not anymore and in the past too it was more token than anything else. As soon as I discovered its demonic roots, I threw away the vestiges of tokenism as well.

I am not part of any cult or faith as I leave such perverse affiliations to retards and to those with a tribal mindset.

I am too intelligent and have too many inner experiences that far exceed the narrow and perverse scope of evil scriptures like Tanakh or NT to be part of any tribal cult or formal religion.

I consider myself a secular cosmic citizen and lay full emphasis on being and becoming leading to self-realization.

You're not a native Hebrew in the Biblical sense.

As I said earlier, you are of European stock whose forefathers converted some centuries ago from paganism or whatever to demonism (Judaism).
