Ishmael and his children are the direct result of the lack of patience with God that Sarah exhibited when she insisted that Father Abraham cohabit with Hagar the slave girl from Egypt. As it was then, so it is now. YHWH moves in His own time and it behooves us to study His ways since He has revealed them to us in the Torah and through the Prophets. When Abraham died, BOTH his sons came together to bury him. And though the Scripture doesn't mention it, surely there must have been a truce during the mourning period. The field and the cave at Mamre are rightfully the property of Israel because Abraham bnought and paid for the field. Taht sale was publicly witnessed and binds the land to Israel forever. But, free access must be allowed to the descendants of Ishmael.
