It must not be forgotten in all this that Zionism - the movement to return to the Holy Land before the coming of the Messiah - is a major heresy within true Orthodox Judaism and up until the 1930s, most Orthodox authorities rejected it as such. Some groups, such as the Satmar, continue to be true to this tradition. I must also say that the references to the Quran are a little skewed: there are references to the people of Israel as a people God has chosen but also many references to their betrayal of the covenant and therefore their exile as a punishment. That in fact fits well with the view of pre-Zionist Orthodox Judaism.
