    One thing is for sure , which is Erdogan revealed his anti- Jewish ,anti- Israel Islamic mindset when he declared “Whoever is on the side of Israel ,let everyone know that we are against them.” This then by those words “against them.” Likewise must mean against him of her ,as an individual, who for the State of Israel

    This must thus mean that they are also against Him. Who is God for being on the side of the Israel for being for Jewish State of Israel. As it is written in the Bible, “For the Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself, Israel for His special treasure.” Psalm 135:4. [N.K.J.V.]

    Furthermore, the Jewish people have every right to all of that land that in now part of Israel, , including the West Bank and the Golan Heights by Divine Right. As seen, for example, in Genesis 28:13-15. 35:48, 49. Psalms 105:7-11. 135:4.

    In addition the Jewish people should also have that land by historic rights. As found in First Kings 4:20,21,24,25. 8:55,56.

    Moreover Erdogan must then also be against President Trump This is because President Trump had wisely said “It’s time to officially recognize [the reality of] Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.” Yes, indeed, it’s very much time to recognize Jerusalem as the capital city of the State of Israel, and he then acted on his word and he had done so by good decision of moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem .This bold and wise decision of President Trump to move the US embassy to Jerusalem has greatly offended many of the Muslim clerics . Be they, for example, the imams of Pakistan or the mullahs of Iran. Those Muslim clerics with their mind control and their unconscionable ways they manipulate the people from the mosques to be their stooges into a, violent uprising, because of the President’s decision is despicable . Some people of the left will say that the decision of move the US embassy to Jerusalem is “provoking” and it will “incite violence.” This only shows the old saying to be true .Which is that “Evil is always looking for an excuse. “ The fact is President Trump made the right decision and if the Muslim clerics don’t happen to like it ,well then it’s “tough beans.” to them

    As the Bible informs its readers “The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem … the Lord will be the hope of His people ,and the strength of the children of Israel.” Joel 3:16.

    Similarly, world DOES NOT recognize, let alone commemorate, the vast genocide of “Hindus” (i.e., Pagans) in various parts of Indian subcontinent from 8th century A.D. to 17th century A.D. by numerous Muslim invaders.

    Today, Muslims in independent India want to subjugate Indian “Hindus” with the help of Christians and “Hindu” Islamists.

    I have seen some Indian “Hindus” who call themselves “Communists” (i.e., Islamists) who want Islamic rule in independent India again!

    Growth of Muslim Population in Medieval India (1000-1800) is a book written by Prof. K.S. Lal published in 1973 A.D.

    The book assesses the demographics of India between 1000 A.D. and 1500 A.D. On the basis of the available historical evidence, Prof. K.S. Lal concluded that the population of Indian subcontinent in 1000 A.D. was about 200 million and in 1500 was about 170 million.

    Prof. K.S. Lal says, however, that “any study of the population of the pre-census times can be based only on estimates, and estimates by their very nature tend to be tentative.”

    Prof. K.S. Lal estimates that about 60 to 80 million “Hindu” people died in India between 1000 and 1525 A.D. as a result of the Islamic invasion of Indian subcontinent.

    Prof. K.S. Lal concluded that, about 2 million people died during Muslim invader Mahmud of Ghazni’s invasions of India alone (pp. 211–217).

    Reviews

    Stephen Neill in his book A History of Christianity in India: The Beginnings to AD 1707, regarded the statistics and material to be “Important sidelights”.[1]

    Simon Digby disputed Lal’s study of the demographic situation in medieval India in a review in Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies.

    Digby suggested that estimate lacks accurate data in pre-census times.[2]

    Muslim Historian Irfan Habib criticized the book in his “Economic History of the Delhi Sultanate – An Essay in Interpretation” (Habib 1978).

    Prof. K.S. Lal wrote a reply to Irfan Habib’s criticism in 1979 (Lal 1979) and in 1999 (Lal 1999).

    Koenraad Elst refers to Lal’s statistics in his book Negationism in India: Concealing the Record of Islam, remarking that “More research is needed before we can settle for a quantitatively accurate
    evaluation of Muslim rule in India, but at least we know for sure that the term crime against humanity is not exaggerated.”[3]

    Recently, historian Jeremy Black in his book Contesting History: Narratives of Public History (2014), remarked these writings to be “recent good works”.[4]
