Jordanian Sheikh: there is no such thing as Palestine in Quran
A Muslim scholar who lives in Jordan, Sheikh Ahmad Adwan, said that there is no such thing as Palestine in the Quran.
"I say to those who distort the Quran: from where did you bring the name Palestine, you liars, you accursed, when Allah has already named it 'the Holy Land' and bequeathed it to the Children of Israel until the Day of Judgment?” he wrote in a post on his Facebook page.
"There is no such thing as ‘Palestine’ in the Quran. Your demand for the Land of Israel is a falsehood and it constitutes an attack on the Quran, on the Jews and their land," he said.
Citing verses in the Quran (such as Sura 26, verse 59), Adwan argues that according to the Muslim holy book, Israel was given as an inheritance to the Jewish people and not to anyone else, the Jerusalem Post reported.
