My question about this whole conflict is, wheather two brothers on not, if we are all God's creation, why do one group of people enjoy favor with God over the other? Should we all not be loved and treated equally? Why does a certain group of people suffer so much why the other enjoy?

Name for me one person that does not suffer some in their life...and name for me one other person who does not enjoy some in their life...you can't group people into groups...we are all special in our own lives, if not then I doubt any of us would have been created at all....life is a test and some will pass with flying colors, the rest will pass by a hair width, the only ones who fail are the ones who quit and kill themselves...enjoy

Just a stray COMMENT from local shite saudis that i worked with:
when the saud family took over the arabian pensiula the following happened
1. The Royal Hussain family from Jordan were asked if they wanted the Arabian Pensuila back? on condition s that Jews would be moved to Israel. He said no thanks
2. The King of Arabia agreed to not go against the west but kinda be neutrual about this movement of Jews ..... if the US were to always protect his Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
This is what some of the older members of some of my employees told me after they trusted me ...I heard this from tribes from the north( Al Shammari) and south(al Harbi) only I alsways wondered how true this was and i spend 3 years in Kuwiat and 18 in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
Is
This Country Great of What

Abraham had two sons - Isaac and Ismael the descendants of Isaac became the Israelites and the descendants of Ismael the Palestinians.

The conflict is one of two brothers - the meaning of the word Allah is roughly - the one up there. In Hebrew - Alohiem - the one up there. On Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem the inscription reads - There is only one God - Allah - and Abraham is his friend.

The Palastinians where also known in the bible as the Philistines as the letter P can be used as both F and P and were often incorrectly translated.

The conflict runs back eons and is very sad as it is all about principle and made worse by people who do not know history

That is eright acording to the bible. The bible also states that the first son was conceved by Abrahams serving wench and Abrahams wife fell pregnant with his second son at tha age of 90. Its a little rich to believe and an very shallow to contemplate that they cannot live together in peace with religous tolerance. If you believe the bible Jesus said we should love one another.
Or as the Beatles sang all we need is love where is it in 2012.

I agree with you ;
I believe that many "one" groups THINK they are "chosen" - Hebrews are ; Christians are ; Moslems are !

This Exclusivity divides peoples and causes conflict.

And yet if a GOD created us all - surely HE cares for EVERY SINGLE one of us, all over the Earth which HE created.
It is Small-minded , mean-hearted Mankind who wish to be "chosen" !

[Haha - as a Rabbi prayed , "Lord, next time , PLEASE chose some OTHER People !" ]
