I would like to find out answers to a few questions :
1) Did Nephi and his brother marry the daughters of Ishmael, and is that
the same Ishmael who is the son of Hajjar and Abraham, known to the Arab
brethern as Ibrahim?
2)I have no reason to question the findings by Joseph F.Smith of the
Golden Scrolls which are transcribed as the Book of Mormon. If this book
is indeed true, and if the above question also happens to be so,
then I believe this connection is perhaps the greatest hidden truth for
today, a truth that will unite the Middle East. Rather than harbour
any ill-will towards Israel, all the Twelve Kingdoms evolved from the
twelve tribes will support and indeed offer to defend Israel, if need be.
By grace of God there will be no such need, and in their understanding
and generosity of spirit and magnanimity, the neighbours of the nation
of Israel will let her and her people be.
I pray for that Peace.
Shalom! Salaam! May peace be unto ye.
