Re: Binding/Sacrifice of Isaac

I think it's probably because Abraham is supposed to be founding father of the Jewish people through his son Isaac and is revered as such, and he is also father to the Arab people (who are usually Muslim), through his other son (I think his name was Ishmael), whom he conceived with his wife's servant (handmaid). So both Arab and Jewish people therefore have the same founding father, although with different mothers! Semitic races.


People in the west can't claim Abraham as a founding father.
