ISLAM means "Submission" (Surah At-Taubah 9:29):
"Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His
Messenger (Muhammad) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)
until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."
The JEWISH VIRTUAL LIBRARY has a page of web links on Islam and the Muslim World. The links often go to source organizations, such as
the State of Saudi Arabia for example, so that you can obtain several perspectives on a subject.

IS THE GOD OF MUHAMMAD THE FATHER OF JESUS?, By Timothy George
Posted 02/01/2002. The answer to this question reveals the heart of our faith. We've also been reminded that Islam, along with Judaism and Christianity, is one of the
three monotheistic faiths. Some take that fact and assume that all three faiths are just one great religion, or three equally valid pathways to the same God.

What does the Koran say about the Jewish people living in their promised land?
SURAH 5:20-21 from the KORAN
"And when Musa (Moses), said to his people (Israel): O my people! Remember the favor of Allah upon you when he raised prophets among you, and made you kings,
and gave you what He had not given to any other among the nations. O my people! enter the holy land which Allah has prescribed for you, and turn not on your backs,
for then you will turn back losers."
[The problem is that this verse from the Koran is swamped by the many others in it that rail against Jews and Christians. While
the promises of the Land of Israel to the descendants of Jacob rest on the Bible empowered by resurrection of Yeshua/Jesus as the future King of Israel, this
quote from the Koran should definitely inspire honest Moslems to question the prevailing Islamic view that the Jewish State of Israel occupies "Arab" land. -cjp]
