comment Were the prophets and holy people who lived before Judah (Yehudah) also Jews?
The first man who is claimed to be a Jew by the Jews was not practicing Judaism in its entireity! How and what? What about Moses (may peace and blessings be upon him)? And what made him a devout Jew? Also why the term "Yehudi" is not mentioned in the Hebrew Bible?

You can never say "he may have indeed faced Jerusalem", because if he had done that then the Hebrew Bible must have mentioned about it.

Isn't that true that Jews are suppose to pray 3 times a day facing Jerusalem? If you claim Abraham to be the first Jew on the planet then why don't we see him praying the ways Jews do nowadays? After all, he was the first Jew as you claim!

The matter of the fact is that he was a devout monotheist who worshipped one God, believed in sacrifice and lived all his life away from paganism. The Hebrew Bible has all of that facts. But he never prayed facing to Jerusalem, never celebrated Yom Kippur, or other Jewish practices!

So are you telling that Avraham (Abraham) used to practice all the Jewish traditions the modern Jews nowadays do? This isn't a fact.

comment (Why) is the construction of the 3rd Temple necessary to restore peace in the world?
@avi What really makes you to state "earthquake or other divine action causes the Dome to collapse"? Mosque, a place of worship where Jews are also welcomed and permissible to pray the way they like is not tolerated! Why? I am a Muslim and a student of Comparative Religion. I frankly feel that we both are the children of Abraham (may peace and blessings be upon him and his followers) who worshipped one God! Jews and Muslims, both must strive for means to coexist peacefully and hence forming a society where both laws can be run in parallel to each other as they both share the same roots.

comment Is there any difference between Jewish G-d and Muslim G-d?
@YDK I am a Muslim and a student of comparative religion. Islam welcomes everyone when it come to preaching i.e. everyone and anyone with no discrimination of race or religion.

comment Is there any difference between Jewish G-d and Muslim G-d?
@YDK If we go through the essentials or fundamentals of both the books even today i.e. Torah and the Quran, we find huge similarities and very minor differences. There are some but both communities can dwell peacefully side by side.

comment Does God discriminate between Jewish and non-Jewish people?
Then why God made the Jews to wander in wilderness for 40 years after the Exodus? Why the Holocaust occured? Why Jews were made to commit suicide and suffer persecutions? Why Jews were persecuted by Hitler and before him? Why God is so harsh to towards the Jews then?

comment Have Jews believed that Ezra was the son of God?
I agree with you that the notion is completely foreign to Judaism. But if you read the Arabic verse then it merely states this notion as a "claim", and not a part of Jewish faith. FYI: cmje.org/religious-texts/quran/verses/009-qmt.php#009.030

comment Have Jews believed that Ezra was the son of God?
If you translate the Arabic verse there in the Quran then you will come to know that it is a claim of some Jews and not something which forms the core belief of Judaism. FYI: cmje.org/religious-texts/quran/verses/009-qmt.php#009.030

comment Is there any difference between Jewish G-d and Muslim G-d?
Muslims do believe firmly that Torah was given to Moses and then it was lost and till Ezra gave it in oral form to the children of Israel. And then later on, the jewish clerics and Rabbis changed the law according to their discretion and preferences.Now if a Rabbi can convince a Muslim that the Torah is still uncorrupted, then why he cannot preach a Muslim about Judaism?

If a Rabbi or a learned Jew can convince a Muslim that the Torah is uncorrupted, then why they cannot teach them about the Torah according to Rambam?
