Yes, GOD promised Abram that Ishmael's seed would become great nation of PEOPLE, not a promised land. Read your bible once and a while. The PROMISED LAND would be given to the decendants of Issac, a JEW. The Palestinian people are the seed of Ishmael. Abraham and Sarah were Jewish. Hagar, the mother of Ishmael, was an Egyptian. There will always be conflict between the Jews and the Arabs. GOD says so in his word. Read the book of Genesis when you get a chance. It will clear things up for you.
