Abraham and the prophets were Arabs
Dr. Issam Sissalem, Educational TV Lecturer, Senior Historian at Islamic University, Gaza: "There is nothing on this land but our history, and all the prophets are our prophets. Abraham, the father of prophets, was an Arab prophet, "a monotheist and a Muslim." [Quran] And Jacob commanded his sons: "Do not die, except as Muslims." [Quran] The Hasmoneans were [also] Arabs from Edom. As historians, we state: All the remains in this land are ours, and we do not want to hear names that the enemy uses."
