Is It Permissible To Call The Jewish State By The Title "Israel"?

came across this article [Is It Permissible To Call The Jewish State By The Title “Israel”?] on www.fatwa-online.com - a bit heavy for me tho!

im not too down with th history an all that, but what do u think?

I guess we could call Israel: “Evil Jewish State That Stole Our Land And In Which Every Person Deserves To Die A Horrible Death.” That might satisfy those people, although it’s a bit lengthy.

Abbreviate it EJSTSOLAIWEPDTDAHD?

Genesis XVII, II:

It’s unfortunate that this sect of Muslims (not all of them, of course) don’t give the Jews the same respect the Jews show the Muslims in the OT. But according to the Jewish religion (and the Christian religion which has adopted the OT except to the extent that the NT supersedes it), the Jews and Christians have every right to call their state Israel. The Arabs can call it whatever they want, and apparently they do.
