The Divine Command (Be!) in the Holy Quran

Published in May 3, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … The Lord God says the following in the Holy Quran: "...On the Day when He says: “Be!”, it will be..." (6:73); this verse comes in the context about the Resurrection Day; I wonder if the divine command (Be!) is mentioned elsewhere in the Quranic text and in what contexts specifically.......Any ideas? … Thank you …

Answer:

 The Lord God says the following in the Holy Quran: "It is He who created the heavens and the earth in Truth. On the Day when He says: “Be!”, it will be. His saying is the Truth, and His is the sovereignty on the Day when the trumpet is blown. The Knower of secrets and declarations. He is the Wise, the Expert." This means that this Quranic verse describes the Dominant Lord God the Creator and Sovereign of the universe and tells us that He says nothing but the Absolute Truth; the Omniscient and Omnipotent Lord God is the Master of the Hour and the Last Day; the universe will be destroyed by His Command and it will reach its zero point, and a New, Eternal Realm (including Hell and Paradise) will be created. The divine command of creation is (Be!). This divine command is mentioned in two Quranic contexts: a general one and about the creation of Jesus.

1- The general context is found in the following verses: "Originator of the heavens and the earth. Whenever He decrees a thing, He says to it, “Be!” , and it becomes." (2:117); "When We intend for something to happen, We say to it, “Be!” , and it becomes." (16:40); "His command, when He wills a thing, is to say to it, “Be!”, and it comes to be." (36:82); "It is He who gives life and death; and when He decides on a thing, He just says to it, “Be!”, and it comes to be." (40:68).

2- The context about the creation of Jesus is found in the following verses: "She said, “My Lord, how can I have a child, when no man has touched me?” He said, “It will be so. God creates whatever He wills. To have anything done, He only says to it, “Be!”, and it is.”" (3:47); "The likeness of Jesus in God’s sight is that of Adam: He created him from dust, then said to him, “Be!” , and he was." (3:59); "It is not for God to have a child - glory be to Him. To have anything done, He says to it, “Be!” , and it becomes." (19:35).

You Have Your Religion & We Have Ours (1)

Published in May 3, 2020

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I wonder how a Quranist like you would act in the same manner like Shiites and Sunnite Salafists/Wahabis; you have terminated my newly created account on your Quranism website for no reason at all; I never wrote but less than a dozen comments; if you disagree with me, would you terminate my account without telling me?! If I made any mistakes, you should advise and correct me instead of terminating my account without prior notice! What have I done exactly to deserve this?! If you mistreat and misjudge a fellow Quranist like me, how would you deal with others who are non-Quranists?! If you are upset 'cause I exposed this new Iraqi Shiite writer of articles who feigns being a Quranist, I consider myself as rendering you a service so as not to get deceived by his not-so-overt Shiite propaganda; he makes use of your writings in order to undermine Sunna and to ridicule the companions of the Prophet Muhammad like Abou Bakr and Omar; this means this Iraqi writer shows that some of your writings serve the purposes of Shiites indirectly...........By the way, when I've faced Shiites in my country, Yemen, they arrested and imprisoned me for a while; you can Google my name, in Arabic, to verify this incident............My purpose is to serve the Quran; I will forgive your excluding me from your website, a behavior, I'm sorry to say, that violates the Quranic higher values you advocate; I know you are a most knowledgeable man; your knowledge of the Quran is one thousand times deeper than mine. Please forgive me if my comments written on your website have offended you in the least; if I made any mistakes, this was unintentional, I assure you. I will continue my mission to defend the Quran with or without you; yet, it will be better if I side with you and you side with me; please make me a new account and I will think twice before passing an adverse judgment on any of the Quranist writers on your website; our being united together will make us gain momentum; our divisions and disputes will make all of us fail; all of us, Quranists, should adhere to this Quranic verse: "And hold fast to the rope of God, altogether, and do not become divided..." (3:103)..............   … Thank you …

Answer:

 You are not among the Quranists however hard you try to convince us into believing otherwise. At first, you have managed to deceive our person temporarily; soon enough, your comments in Arabic exposed your true stance and you showed your true colors too early as if your having an account on our website (ahl-alquran.com) was taken for granted by you. Your comments show clearly that you are a Sunnite man who tends to be violent and to engage into political activism. You have violated our publishing conditions on purpose. We never allow any political activism in our website; we allow no insulting others for their having different religious views. We believe in peace as Islam in terms of behavior; i.e., peaceful demeanor is Islam. Our call for religious reform is peaceful, and we, and all true Quranists, never seek to engage into political activism; we never seek to reach power anywhere in the world. We seek enlightenment and the intellectual, peaceful war against religious terrorism by raising awareness of others about True Islam: the Quran-only Islam or Quranism. Quranists in our website have never formed an organization, a political party, or a new religion. We and other true Quranists who follow the same school/line of thought you have violated on purpose (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/English/show_article.php?main_id=15303) are merely free thinkers from all over the world who believe in free speech, and the cyberspace unites us all; we never saw one another in person; we never gather in meetings anywhere; the only Quranists who know one another among us in person belong to the same family members in most cases. We implore the Lord God to guide you to His Straight Path.

Sitting Near a Drunkard

Published in May 5, 2020

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Of course, I know that wine-drinking is prohibited as a sin as per the Quran and one must avoid wine; my question is as follows: Should I avoid my own biological brother if he is a drunkard? Any ideas?  … Thank you …

Answer:

 No. The Quran commands us to avoid wine which means to avoid drinking it, selling/buying it, and fabricating it; this does NOT include avoiding people who drink it or work within its fabrication and trade in it.

An Urgent Question!

Published in May 5, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … Please! This is a very urgent question and I wait eagerly for your quick response! I sent my son at one time to purchase food items from a local supermarket; I gave him my credit card; yet, once he reached the cashier, he forgot the bank code and was unable to pay for the items he bought; my son's friend paid instead as he had cash. This friend of my son works in illegal trade and thus earns ill-gotten money! I made my son repay him in cash the very next day, but I threw the food items in the garbage as they were paid for with ill-gotten money! I felt disgusted at the prospect of consuming food items purchased with ill-gotten money! My son said I made a mistake by throwing the groceries since we repaid his friend; what do you think? Did I do the right thing?! Is my son right and am I wrong? Any ideas? … Thank you …    

Answer:

 Those who earn ill-gotten money are sinful people and the Lord God will not accept their charity/Zakat paid from such ill-gotten wealth. Yet, there is no sin at all in receiving money from such sinful people as a gift, charity, or a loan; money is a neutral tool in itself; how to earn it is the behavior which may be sinful/illegal or permissible/legal. You are in the wrong to throw food items; anyway, you have paid for them when you made your son repay his friend. Kitchen knives are neutral tools: it is legal and permissible to use them to cut food items and it is forbidden and illegal to use them to murder someone.

Pieces of Advice for a Dear Son

Published in May 6, 2020

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, …  I'd like to apologize for wasting your precious time when I sent too many questions; I am now specifying more time to read your great books, fatwas, and articles and to watch your great YouTube videos; I use the search box on your Arabic website now more often than not; I feel disappointed whenever I check Sunnite books of exegeses to understand any Quranic verses..............  … Thank you …        

Answer:

 We know, our son, that you are a good person and a pious, monotheistic believer; we give you here these pieces of advice. Please do not waste your time reading Sunnite books of any type; they contain nothing but lies and myths; we urge you to read our books and articles...etc. regularly in the chronological order of their being published online from the oldest to the newest; you can jot down any remarks or questions in a reading log; as your reading progresses, you will find answers to your questions; you should read our archive while using your critical mind; this way, you will become a very good Quranist. Of course, since you live in Germany, you can create a blog or something like it to copy in them our Quranist writings and spread their links and also the links to our subtitled-into-English videos; this is your peaceful jihad for the sake of Islam (i.e., Qurnaism) to serve the Lord God's cause. You can proselytize/preach Quranism among the Muhammadans where you live. Yet, do not waste your time arguing endlessly and aimlessly with Sunnites in Germany or online; as per the Quran, it is sinful to argue about the Quranic verses with those who seek to undermine the Lord God's Word. May the Lord God bless you.

About Piety in Islam

Published in May 9, 2020

 

  

Question: … Dear Sir, … I feel that I lack piety; I sometimes feel too much engaged with so many worldly things, affairs, and activities; I play a lot and I sleep a lot; I don’t pray regularly........... Please help me! Any advice?… Thank you …      

Answer:

 We refer you to our article, in English, about piety in Islam, found on the following link:

About Divorce and Temporary Marriages, Again!

Published in May 9, 2020

 

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I desire to know if temporary marriages for pleasure (common among Shiites, I am told) is OK in Islam or not esp. that deception might be involved by some people in such cases...........Besides, I have a couple of questions about divorce in the Quranic text:..........................Sunnite books include some strange ideas:................................. What do you think? … Thank you  …      

Answer:

 As for divorce in Islam, we refer you to our article in English found on the following link:

http://www.ahl-alquran.com/English/show_article.php?main_id=15977

 As for temporary marriages, we said in previous fatwas that it is OK but within mutual consent of both parties: the husband and the wife; no party is to deceive the other in this regard. Of course, all conditions of validity must be applied in both permanent and temporary marriages. Divorced women have the same financial rights within both permanent and temporary marriages; if a husband dies before divorce would occur in the temporary marriage, the widow inherits her legal share as per the Quran. Women who obtain divorce after the temporary marriage ends within mutual consent cannot remarry unless after the three-month waiting period of time. Sunnite views against temporary marriage (to spite and contradict Shiites) are irrelevant to us.

Position of Hands during Prayers

Published in May 12, 2020

 

 

Question:  … Dear Sir, … Sunnites and Shiites dispute for centuries over how one's hands should be positioned during prayers; what do you personally think of that topic? … Thank you …      

Answer:

 This is irrelevant; put your hands in whatever position you choose; what matters within prayers as well as in all acts of worship is piety which achieves the purification of the souls of monotheistic believers. In man-made, earthly religions, prayers are reduced to mere meaningless movements and mutterings which have nothing to do with piety; the devilish prayers of Sunnites and Shiites drive them to dispute over trivial matters and to deify/sanctify things and mortals while committing bloodshed and other grave sins and injustices. Please watch our YouTube episodes about prayers and please read our book titled (Between the Quranic Prayers of Muslims and the Devilish Prayers of the Muhammadans).

Our Own Prayers and Being an Imam within Them

Published in May 12, 2020

 

Question: … This is a personal question: Do you pray alone, dear Dr. Mansour, or as an imam with congregations (or relatives) behind you in VA, the USA? … Thank you …   

Answer:

  When we were in Egypt, we prayed as an imam the five daily prayers in mosques or inside our house as my sons were very young and we taught them to pray and instilled into them to get used to perform the daily five prayers regularly; as for the last twenty-five years of our life, we pray alone in our Cairo house and then our VA house; this helps us to concentrate within piety and reverence in our old age now; we implore the Lord God to accept our prayers and all acts of worship and also those of all our dear fellow Quranists.

Fasting & Dawn Prayers

Published in May 13, 2020

 

Question: …  Dear Sir, … Sadly, where I live, there are two different Azans (i.e., calls to prayers) for the dawn prayers in Ramadan separated from each other by only 6 minutes; this is due to a quarrel between two imams of the only two mosques in the neighborhood! I rely on the belated Azan which is 6 minutes away before the timing published in the newspapers; this is how I make sure my fasting is correct. Yesterday, I woke up at night and went straight ahead to the fridge to drink some water and gobble a sandwich; I disregarded the Azan I never follow when I heard it and began my fasting as per the second Azan I follow. I have now the gravest doubts; I fear I've lost the day; I should not have eaten minutes before the dawn Azan! I'm not sure if the day is lost and I have to repeat it or not; what if the Azan I never follow is the correct one?! ..... Any advice?!       …  Thank you …        

Answer:

 Your fasting is correct; stop being so meticulous about trivialities; what matters most in fasting, and indeed in all acts of worship, is attaining piety and feeling reverence within fearing the Lord God; by the way, all timings of Azans are relative and tentative; there were no clocks/watches when the Quran was being revealed in 7th century Arabia. This is why we read this verse about when to start fasting in each day of Ramadan: "...And eat and drink until the white streak of dawn can be distinguished from the black streak..." (2:187). May the Lord God accept prayers and fasting and all acts of worship performed by all of our dear fellow Quranists worldwide.

You Have Your Religion & We Have Ours (2)

Published in May 13, 2020

 

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, …  Your website is really strange; you dare recommend to readers to intentionally disregard Sunna and the Prophet Muhammad's exegeses of the Quran and that of his good companions?! ......... So, one should reject hadiths and follow instead your own ideas which might be right or wrong?! ........... Your views are subjective, groundless, and without proofs; you are bent on distorting the image of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad! You reject hadiths but you believe in historical narratives! Why?! ....... I'm sure when you die, you will realize you were in the wrong as the angels of death will inform you of your fate in Hell! You are an enemy of the Prophet Muhammad! You hate him! ................  …  Thank you …

Answer:

 You have your religion and we have ours; the Dominant, Omniscient Lord God will settle our disputes on the Last Day. We never believe in history as part of religion; the only Book to believe in within Islam is the Holy Quran. We respect absolute religious freedom for all human beings; we adhere to monotheism and we never impose our Quranist views on others; we never approve of worshiping devilish tombs/mausoleums and the so-called 'saints'; we, Quranists, never deify Muhammad or any other mortals. We never allow any of the Muhammadans to impose his/her own polytheistic ideas on our person; Muhammad and the so-called companions never left any exegeses of any kind; they never sought to 'interpret' the Quran. They never authored any books; authors of books in the Abbasid Era wove fictional stories about them in this respect. The only true history of Muhammad is found exclusively in the Quran. Following hadiths means to follow devilish revelations. Quranists are monotheists who never deify mortals or books or things/tombs/relics. The so-called companions are deities in the Sunnite pantheon. They are criminals who invaded, looted, raped, conquered, massacred, enslaved, destroyed, sabotaged,...etc. Our religious views are not infallible; we never claim being an infallible thinker; we ascribe our views to ourselves; in contrast, imams/authors of the terrestrial religions of Satan ascribe their views to the Lord God and to Muhammad; their hadiths contradict one another. As a thinker and a reformist, we have our methodology to understand the Quran; this methodology is derived from the Quran itself; since 1977, we discover, explore, and write about forgotten Quranic facts of Islam; such facts remained hidden for 14 centuries. As for our being a historian and a historical researcher, our research methodology includes using the Quran as the Criterion to judge any historical figures and their deeds; the companions of the Arab conquests are disbelievers and criminals who attributed their crimes/sins to the name of Islam; they are the enemies of Islam. That such human devils ascribed their heinous crimes and grave sins to the name of Islam is a grave injustice against the Lord God, the Quran, and Muhammad. The same applies to terrorists today who commit their (suicide) attacks while shouting (God is the Greatest!). Good and bad deeds of any historical figures must be ascribed to them and NOT to the name of Islam. Before our Quranist call began in 1977, the terrestrial Sufi, Sunnite, and Shiite religions have been dominant in the planet of the Muhammadans for centuries. There must be a clear distinction made between the two terms 'Islam' and 'Muslims'; both terms overlap in the minds of the ignorant masses. Our writings prove that Islam is the Quran only; Islam contains no other books; all other books in all fields (history, religious thought,...etc.) have human authors. The Author of the Quran is the Lord God Himself. The sinful caliphs who ascribed their heinous crimes of the Arab conquests to the name of Islam are worse than secular tyrants like Hitler, Saddam Hussein, and Genghis Khan who launched their secular wars which were grave injustices against people; at least, such secular tyrants never attributed their heinous crimes to the Lord God or to the name of Islam.

The Fasting Rendered Acceptable by Allah

Published in May 14, 2020

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … How could I know if the Lord God accepts my fasting or not? What are the conditions of acceptable fasting? Any ideas? …  Thank you …

Answer:

 Fasting, as well as all acts of worship, rendered acceptable by the Lord God is the one done while being dedicated only to Him within piety, monotheism, and devotion. Fasting performed by the Muhammadans is never acceptable because of their polytheism; i.e., they worship mortals and mausoleums. They also never adhere to piety when they deal with one another; it is a shame and a disgrace that they consider fasting as a social event/habit; some of them fast and never pray! Some of them commit more sins while fasting! Many Wahabi terrorists commit their terrorist crimes/attacks in Ramadan in Egypt and elsewhere; this lessened this year only because of the Coronavirus pandemic. In history, no unjust, aggressive wars or civil wars of the Muhammadans stopped during any Ramadan or even during the four sacred months of pilgrimage/Hajj. Please read our book on fasting. You should bear in mind that the Lord God nullifies the good deeds and acts of worship performed by polytheists: "Those who deny Our revelations and the meeting of the Hereafter - their deeds will come to nothing..." (7:147); "...But whoever rejects faith, his work will be in vain, and in the Hereafter he will be among the losers. " (5:5); "...Had they adhered to polytheism, their deeds would have gone in vain." (6:88); this is about some contemporaries of Muhammad who rejected the Quranic Message and followed polytheistic myths: "That is because they pursued what displeases God, and they disliked His approval, so He nullified their works." (47:28).

About the Quranic Verse 7:41

Published in May 14, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … What is meant by 7:41? It seems that I can't imagine it in relation to Hell torment................Any ideas? …  Thank you … 

Answer:

The God says the following in the Holy Quran about the inmates of Hell in the Hereafter: "For them is a couch of hell, and above them are sheets of fire. Thus We repay the unjust ones." (7:41). What you cannot imagine is that layers of fire will torment them from above them and also from below them. Of course, eschatological topics in the Quran are a little harder to understand or visualize/imagine in one's mind. Yet, one must ponder them deeply within the Quranist methodology we have explained on our website many times: grouping similar verses with the same topic and terminology and to decide the similar verses and the definitive ones. The Quranic verses explain one another. Of course, the meaning of 7:41 is repeated and explained here: "They will have layers of Fire above them, and layers beneath them. That is how God strikes fear into His servants - “O My servants! Fear Me within piety!”" (39:16).

The Arabic Root n/q/b in the Quran in Relation to Niqab

Published in May 14, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … So, you tell us that full-face-covering veil or "niqab" is not mentioned in the Quran; but what about words in the Quranic text whose Arabic root is n/q/b? What do they mean? Any ideas? …  Thank you … 

Answer:

 The niqab and the hijab/veil are never mentioned in Quranic legislations about women's dress code in 24:30-31, 24:60, and 33:59. Women in Islam are never required to cover their hair or heads at all. The Arabic root is n/q/b is found only in two words in the Quran to refer to piercing a wall by Gog and Magog and to roam/explore the lands, in the following two verses, respectively: "So they were unable to climb it, and they could not penetrate/naqaba it." (18:97); " How many generations before them, who were more powerful than they, did We destroy? They explored/naqiboo the lands - was there any escape?" (50:36).

 There is neither full veil/niqab nor veil/Hijab for women in Islam (i.e., Quranism) at all; we refer you to these articles of ours in English found on the following links:

No Grief And No Fear

Published in May 15, 2020

 

Question: … I am a 22-year-old male youth; I always think about death; I fear death very much; I feel I will enter into Hell in the Hereafter; I always fail to pray regularly; my repentance is always short lived! I feel I am failing the tests of life all the time; I am now depressed and feel utter despair ......... Fear and anxiety dominate my life now! .......... What if I would be tormented in this world for my sins?! ......... What shall I do?! Any advice? Any soothing words? … Thank you …    

Answer:

 Please, our son, do not feel afraid, grieved, depressed, or anxious; you are still young; your current state indicates your piety and deep faith; devout, monotheistic believers repent all the time and return to their Lord God; they never despair of the mercy of the Lord God: "Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves: do not despair of God’s mercy, for God forgives all sins. He is indeed the Forgiver, the Clement.”" (39:53). As for torment in this world, it occurs when one commits grave sins only and never repents; all people are being tested in this world by adversities and prosperity; torment in the Hereafter are for those sinners who died without repentance and/or while adhering to polytheism. The Lord God in the Holy Quran has promised Paradise forever for all pious monotheist who performed many good deeds and repented sincerely. This should be your plan in your life; this should be your ultimate goal. "As for those who believe and lead a righteous life - We will not waste the reward of those who work righteousness." (18:30). When one avoids grave sins and never commits injustices towards people, one will be among the pious ones who deserve Paradise. You are a God-fearing young man; prayers performed regularly within piety/reverence will drive away any doubts, anxiety, and fear inside you regarding death and the Hereafter; may the Lord God bless and protect you. To allay your fears through gaining Quranist knowledge, please read our three books (in English) found on the following links:

About Dreams/Visions, Again!

Published in May 15, 2020

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir,  … Clergymen/sheikhs of our village say that it's a grave sin to tell lies regarding one's dreams/visions when one narrates them to others; when I sometimes see dreams/visions, I forgot their details and never mention them wholly when I narrate them to my relatives and family members......Is this a grave sin indeed?! … Thank you …    

Answer:

 No; the origin of such erroneous view of Sunnites/Sufis is that in their religions of Satan, they consider dreams/visions as part of divine revelation; Sufi books are filled with countless stories 'ascertaining' such a myth; in such stories, Sufi sheikhs/authors claim to have seen God and/or Muhammad! For instance, Al-Shaarany (the Egyptian Sufi sheikh and author of the Ottoman Era) in his book titled (Al-Tabakat Al-Sughra) claims that he saw Muhammad, while sleeping and while being awake, and that Muhammad came to him to learn from him! This is very insulting to Muhammad, of course. Within Sufi-Sunnite sharia of Satan, hadiths were fabricated to inform people to never tell lies regarding dreams/visions; yet, Sufi authors invented so many lies/dreams in their books! Such narratives of theirs insult the Lord God and Muhammad and belittle and undermine the Holy Quran. As for you, our son, rest assured that it is of minor importance to remember/narrate dreams fully; it is OK to narrate them but do not assume they are 'messages' from the Lord God; they are not. Eventually, most dreams/visions seen during one's sleep/slumber are mere jumbles of dreams. The following Quranic verse applies to Sufis/Sunnites/Shiites who fabricated hadiths/narratives while ascribing them to Islam as part of a 'divine' revelation: "Who commits graver injustice than someone who invents falsehood against God, or says, “It was revealed to me,” when nothing was revealed to him, or says, “I will reveal the like of what God revealed”? If only you could see the unjust ones in the floods of death, as the angels with arms outstretched: “Give up your souls. Today you are being repaid with the torment of shame for having said about God other than the truth, and for being too proud to accept His Verses.”"" (6:93).

There Is No Contradiction Here

Published in May 16, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I feel that 2:154 & 3:169 are contradicted by 3:185! You say that the Quran contains no contradictions, huh?! How come?! … Thank you  …  

Answer:

 The Lord God says the following in the Holy Quran: "And do not say of those who are killed in the cause of God, “Dead.” Rather, they are alive, but you do not perceive." (2:154); "Do not consider those killed in the cause of God as dead. In fact, they are alive, at their Lord, well provided for." (3:169); "Every soul will have a taste of death..." (3:185).

 There is no contradiction here: all people die; they experience/taste death which means that their souls leaves their bodies forever; souls of all people remain in Barsakh tombs in a state of motionlessness, timelessness, and senselessness; yet, this does NOT apply to souls of those who got killed while serving God's cause; their souls enter into Barsakh Paradise to enjoy pleasures there until the Day of the Resurrection; this is why their souls are not dead; they feel time and experience bliss.

Astronomical Calculations and Ramadan

Published in May 16, 2020

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … I disagree with your view in some articles that Ramadan days can be calculated astronomically without having to see crescents in the sky ushering in the beginning and end of Ramadan and other months of the lunar calendar............ Of course, one can rely on seeing crescents while one rejects hadiths at the same time........... … Thank you …

Answer:

 There are many websites of institutions and scientific research centers of astronomy; you can browse through them; our articles which you refer to mention our Quranist vision of approving of the accuracy of astronomical calculations within counting the Ramadan days instead of seeing crescents with the naked eye.

Published in May 17, 2020

 

 

Question: … Dear Sir, … What is your view of Israel or the Jewish/Hebrew State established in 1948, esp. with advances in all fields realized there? … Thank you …  

Answer:

 Israel is a democratic State; once established, free elections were held there; democracy is the keyword behind any advances or achievements there; though Israeli Arabs are second-class citizens, they live in better conditions and enjoy rights never dreamed of by Palestinians in Gaza Strip and the West Bank and by Egyptians in Egypt. Even Palestinian criminals/prisoners inside Israeli prisons receive good treatment in contrast to harsh treatment of Egyptian political prisoners (who preach justice, democracy, and freedom) inside Egyptian prisons (and in other Arab countries). Israeli democracy makes Israel better than any Arab country. By the way, Dr. Taha Hussein announced his welcoming the newly created State of Israel in 1948 because Arab countries may imitate its democracy; he disapproved of slow, hindered steps towards democracy in Egypt at the time in the 1940s; yet, after the 1952 coup d'état in Egypt, no steps towards democracy were ever taken (until now) because of the tyrannical military regime which made Egypt descend into lower levels of collapse and deterioration. Israel, the Jewish/Hebrew State, enjoys religious freedom never dreamed of by religious minorities in the Arab world such as Coptic Orthodox Christian in Egypt. There is no source of consolation for the Muhammadans who are programmed or indoctrinated to hate Israel for no reason.
