Jews tend not to hung up on prophesying - thats a Christian trait<quoted text>
I would rather answer to him and not to you.
Because there are people who 'prophesize" in Islam also as there is a professional lobby amongst Jews and Christians who explain every happening in the world as "being foretold" in their books.
Jews having a nation and Jews from all over the world gathered to given a nation right in the heart of Muslim lands are two different things.
The whole world is open to them, why should they select a place, which results in endless conflicts and wars?
It was a very poor selection of site and the world is witnessing its bad effects for past 60 years and things are going to be worse as time passes.
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.
