The Roman Catholic church had replacement theology, blaming the Jews for the death of Christ. "Replacement theology" was understood to be rooted in the cursing of the Jews (the cursing of the field of Judas), and the reason behind their national misfortune. The de facto success of the State of Israel, and disdain for centuries of anti-Semitism within the Church, however, led to superficial theological changes. In 1965, the Catholic Nostra Aetate, stated clearly and plainly 1) The Jews as a whole were no longer ... responsible for the death of Christ, and, 2) Above all, they were no longer considered "rejected by God" or "cursed." The Roman Catholic Church had an alternative "Grafted on" Theology to fall back on, where the Church is an extension, rather than a replacement, of Judaism. Roman Catholicism & Islam are both Based Upon A Form Of Replacement Theology.. Roman Catholicism Israel in the Old Testament was a Theocracy but Roman Catholicism saw itself as the new Theocracy which replaced Israel because the majority of the Jews, rejected Jesus as the Jewish Messiah. Unfortunately, even as a bad tree brings forth corrupt fruit, this false teaching led to much subsequent persecution of the Jews by the Vatican during the crusades right unto & including the Holocaust of WW2. However, in 1965, as previously discussed, the Vatican changed its official stance concerning Israel & then finally accepted Israel as a nation in 1993. Islam In this article “The Perils of Replacement Theology (Part 2),” we shall see that Islam also has a type of replacement theology. They believe that `God` has finished with Israel, but their type of Replacement Theology is not based on the Jews rejection of their Messiah, but rather the Jewish Nation's failure to prevail militarily over Rome.
Islam And The Jews
According to the book, “Islam & The Jews” by Mark A. Gabriel, Ph.D © 2003 (ISBN 0-88419-956-8) [ published by Frontline –A Strang Company], there are powerful cultural & spiritual forces that explain why: • Palestinians reject peace offers. • Radical Muslims, attack Israel’s supporters, especially Americans. • Jews are disliked & hated by Muslims of any nationality world-wide, not just by those who are Palestinian Muslims & others in the Middle East. Mark A. Gabriel is not someone who merely just researched about Islam, he lived it for thirty four years. He was also a former lecturer of Islamic history at the Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt. He also once hated the Jews with a passion, as he admits in his book! Islam believes that God has finished with Israel & Therefore does not have the right to exist. According to the book "From Time Immemorial" by Joan Peters, 1984, once a national best seller in America, & recently reprinted, Islam has a lot to fear from Judaism. Not because Judaism is in any way antagonistic to Islam. It is because of the following reason... Islam justifies its existence because of the failure of the Jews -- in particular their failure militarily over Rome. The existence of Israel as a successful Jewish state, especially as a military power, is a theological threat to Muslims everywhere. Islam does not particularly blame the Jews for death of Christ, rather specifically for its failure militarily over Rome during the lifetime of The `Prophet `Mohammed, and generally for Judaism's failure to become a successful world religion. Muslims do not believe that Jesus Christ was Crucified & killed (Surah 4:157), contrary to the eyewitness accounts of friends, neutral bystanders & Historians, as well as those who were Christ's enemies (both Roman & Jewish).
The de facto success of the State of Israel, causes similar problems within Islam, as it does with Roman Catholicism, but this time there is no theological alternative. The 'right' and 'proof 'of the `legitimacy` of Islam was originally the Jews misfortune at the hands of Rome and later Byzantium. When these empires disappeared, Islam itself took on this role. The Jews lowly status was no longer a fact of circumstance, but an Islamic right.” *****

Most people assume that the unfortunate animosity between Israel & the ones called Palestinians is merely due to the rebirth of the nation of Israel on May 14th 1948 & the influx of Jews from around the world into that area of hotly contested real estate …BUT … if you want to know the real reason then all you have to do is open the pages of the Koran, like I have.
Allah & Muhammad were Originally nice towards the Jews. Referring to them : 1) As the Chosen people (Surah 2:47, 122); 2) As Protected while they were strangers in the land of Egypt (Surah 28:4-6); 3) As Favoured by Allah who chose all his prophets from them (Surah 5:20). 4) Those whom Allah will bless if they practice the teachings of their Holy Books (Surah 5:44, 46-47, 66). These are just some examples of how Muhammad tried to make Islam attractive to the Jews. He tried to find common ground with them & use that as a basis to accept Islam, saying that it was the true religion that Abraham practised & that he was also one of the prophets of God. He believed that Jewish converts to Islam would present powerful `proof` to others that his way is `true`. He tried to make out that he is that special prophet that was to come in Deuteronomy 18:15-18.
However, the Jews were not deceived by Mohammad`s Flattery. The Jews did not respond in the way that Muhammad had hoped as they noticed that he did not have the miraculous credentials of a prophet (like Moses – who performed many Miracles). He wasn't a Jew, as was Moses & his brethren, neither did all of his writings match up with the Torah & the Jewish prophets.
• • • •
The Jews asked for a sign but Mohammed didn't perform them. Mohammed responded by saying that the signs are with Allah, not with him. The Jews also mocked Mohammed The idol worshippers converted very quickly over to Mohammed, so they did not prove to be much of a threat to Mohammad`s cause. The Jews, therefore became known as the number one enemy of Islam because they continued to resist being converted. Later, a Jewess (Jewish Woman) called Zainab later attempted to poison Mohammed. The poison didn't kill him but it left him with a weakened body. The early Muslims saw this as another blot against all the Jews & a vindication for Mohammed who didn't die from it. This is one of the main reason for the intense dislike & hatred against the Jews by the followers of Islam. The Jews, however were not the first to oppose Mohammed & they certainly were not the first to try to kill him … it was the pagan Arabs of Mecca.
Mohammad then turns in hatred against the Jews
After roughly a year in Medina (which was originally a Jewish settlement), only a few Jews had converted to Islam. The great majority of the Jews completely rejected him. Mohammed therefore hated them & started having `revelations` completely opposite to the earlier ones at the beginning of his career at Mecca. The friendly & tolerant verses of the Koran towards the Jews (as well as the Christians & everyone else), the Meccan Surahs have all been `abrogated` or cancelled by the later Medina Surahs of the Koran (See: Surah 2:106).
Religious Discrimination & Anti Jewish Hatred in the Koran.
Both Jewish & Christian Faiths pre-date the religion of Islam (625A.D.- ). Both the Jewish Old Testament as well as the Christian New Testament do not even mention nor attack Muhammad or the religion of Islam. THEREFORE, given these two facts as well as the verses (Surahs) of the Koran that attack the Jewish & Christian faiths, it is correct to say that it is not the Bible that has attacked the Koran, but that the Koran has attacked the Bible! Error is always a reaction to the Truth! The Koran in Surah 5:51, 57 also tells Muslims NOT to even make friends with Jews or Christians
You Have just seen that Surah 5:51 & 57 forbid Muslims making friends with Jews & Christians, stating that the ones who do are not true Muslims and are unjust. The Bible commands Jews & Christians to, "love thy neighbour as thyself" in Leviticus 19:18; Matthew 5:43-44. Oh, by the way, Neighbours include the ones who view you as enemies. We are to love those who don't love us & be courteous to those who are not courteous to us (Matthew 5:45-47). If we are friendly with those who are not Christian we are obeying God as well as making a difference in this world & will win lost souls to Christ. Below is a table of just a few of the anti Jewish verses of the Koran, as well as verses of Islamic Replacement Theology.

The Collaboration between the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem's Al-Asqa Mosque & The Nazis During World War 2.
The Grand Mufti was the Sunni Muslim cleric in charge of Jerusalem's Islamic `holy` places, including the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He was also the Undisputed leader of Arab Nationalism in the 1920`s - 1940`s. In this article I will also expose the fact that The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem conspired with Hitler in World War 2 in seeking to wipe out the Jewish race & culture, for the cause of Allah, the god of Islam. He was born in 1895 in Jerusalem .He was in office as the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem 1921-1948 & was also the president of the Supreme Islamic Council from 1922-1937. He was also a member of the political party called, “Arab Higher Committee” & the Muslim leader in the British Mandate of Palestine. (See: Richard Breitman and Norman J. W. Goda Hitler's Shadow,

In 1931, al-Husayni founded the World Islamic Congress, on which he was to serve as president. Arab protest delegations against British policy in Palestine during 1929.
Growing Antisemitism across Europe
The antisemitism of the Nazis in the mid-1930`s had a great appeal already to many Arab Nationalists & Islamic fundamentalists & from about 1936 onwards, therefore Hitler & his propaganda machine sought to win over the Arab influence of the Middle East. This was during a period when antisemitism was at a peak.
United by a common Hatred
Amin Al-Husseini was also a fervent admirer of Adolf Hitler. He was also one the founders of the modern radical Islamist movement. Hitler knew that the Mufti was a man who not only could serve his purpose, but also wanted to serve his purpose.
Mohammad Amin al-Husayni meeting with Adolf Hitler (December 1941).
In 1933, within weeks of Hitler's rise to power in Germany, the German ConsulGeneral in Palestine, the pro-nazi Heinrich Wolff, sent a telegram to Berlin reporting al-Husayni's belief that Palestinian Muslims were enthusiastic about the new regime and looked forward to the spread of Fascism throughout the region. Wolff met al-Husayni and many sheiks a month later, at Nabi Musa. They expressed their approval of the anti-Jewish boycott in Germany and asked Wolff not to send any Jews to Palestine. (See Leni Yahil, The Holocaust: The Fate of European Jewry, 1932-1945, Oxford University Press, Oxford 1990 p. 676 n. 53). Also (Francis R. Nicosia, Zionism and
Anti-Semitism in Nazi Germany, pp. 85-87, 196)Cambridge University Press, Cambridge 2008 pgs 85-87, 196).
Throughout World War II, al-Husayni worked for the Axis Powers as a broadcaster in propaganda targeting Arab public opinion. He recruited Muslim volunteers for the German armed forces operating in the Balkans. Beginning in 1941, al-Husayni visited Bosnia, and convinced Muslim leaders that a Muslim S.S. division would be in the interest of Islam. In spite of these and other propaganda efforts, "only half of the expected 20,000 to 25,000 Muslims volunteered." (The Black Book of Bosnia by Nader
Mousavizadeh, (Editor), Basic Books, New York, 1996, p. 23).
Al-Husayni was involved in the organization and recruitment of Bosnian Muslims into several divisions of the Waffen SS and other units. The largest was the 13th "Handschar" division of 21,065 men, which conducted operations against Communist partisans in the Balkans from February 1944, committing numerous atrocities against their traditional ethnic rivals the local Christian Serbs. (See: Hall Amin Al-Husayni: The Mufti of Jerusalem". Holocaust Encyclopedia. June 25, 2007. http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/article.php?lang=en&ModuleId=10007255. Retrieved 19th 10 2007.
(Below, is the Insignia of the 13th Handschar division).

In Summary, Regarding Amin al-Husayni. As Grand Mufti, as well as the other influential positions that he held during this period, al-Husayni played a key role in violent opposition to Zionism. In 1937, Amin al-Husayni fled to Lebanon to avoid arrest for anti-British activities, and did not return to Palestine. From Lebanon, he began communication with the Nazis .It seemed odd to many within the Nazi party at the time that Hitler would unite with a non Aryan but Hitler saw in Mohammad Amin al-Husaynia man who not only could serve his purpose, but also wanted to serve his purpose, and that was to bring a final solution to what he saw as “the Jewish problem”During the years of World War II he was involved in recruiting Arab support for Nazi Germany. He died while on exile in Cairo in 1974 at the age of 79 & then went to Hell.
Both Roman Catholicism & Islam have a common ground in Replacement Theology. • Both of these systems teach their people that Israel has been finished with of God & have been replaced by them. • Both of them have an eschatology that is not found in the consistent interpretation of the Jude o-Christian scriptures. • Both of them are historic persecutors of Christ's earthly brethren, the Jews by murdering multiple multitudes of them & thinking that they were serving the God of the Bible. (NOTE: JOHN 16:1-3). • Both of them demonize the Jews & always paint Israel as the `Bad Guy`. Unless you are watching independent media journalism, you will always see Israel as the bad guy on the news.
• The hierarchies of both these religious systems ordered those within their flocks to carry out acts of violence against Israel. • Both have trained militant youth to carry out what they see as acts of `Holy` war.
The Vatican Is Seeking To Unite With Islam
Since the 2nd Vatican Council, its hierarchy has quite actively sought for religious unity with Islam & other non Christian faiths. Most notably, John Paul the 2nd was the first so called `Pope` to visit a Jewish Synagogues & the first to set foot inside a mosque. If we look at the St Paul's Catechism of the Catholic church, under Article 841 of the catechism we read, .."The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together WITH US THEY ADORE the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day."

Pope Benedict on Saturday 9th of May 2009 met with the muslim leaders, university rectors, and the diplomatic corps in Jordan at the King Hussein Bin Talal Mosque in Amman. During his discourse, he said, “Muslims and Christians, precisely because of the burden of our common history so often marked by misunderstanding, must today strive to be known and recognized as worshippers of God faithful to prayer, eager to uphold and live by the Almightys decrees, merciful and compassionate, AND consistent in bearing witness to all that is true and good.” He said Muslim-Christian co-operation found in Jordan sets an encouraging and persuasive example for the region, and indeed the world, of the positive, creative contribution … - Check out this link http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=OztBBPPqhRY All of these things are leading up to the coming One World Religion which will be under a Roman capstone – headed by the final antichrist.
CONCLUSION, It Makes A Difference What You Believe. The Bad Tree Of Replacement Theology Has Yields Bad Fruit & Will Always Yield Bad Fruit..
We saw in the first article, “On The Perils of Replacement Theology (Part 1)” that Roman Catholicism was the first to teach the heresy of Replacement Theology, and also the first to teach Post Tribulation eschatology -(that there is no rapture & that the `church` must go through the Tribulation period). Since the Vatican believed & taught that their `church` replaced Israel it persecuted Jesus Christ's earthly brethren throughout the ages & sanctioned the Nazi holocaust which murdered at least 6 million Jews.
After Israel became a nation again the Vatican (which basically is in control of the United Nations) sought to turn Jerusalem into an international city, because she ultimately wants Jerusalem for herself. The U.N. Succeeded in parting the land originally giving only 18% to the Israelis, while the rest went to the Arabs. The Vatican is still an enemy of Israel today. Since the Second Vatican Council there has been a tendency of Roman Catholicism to unite with Islam, yet again on the common grounds that they have with each other, one of them being Replacement Theology. They both believe that the Jews don't really belong in that land. Both Islam & the Vatican want Israel for themselves. Both of them are Israel's enemies & eventually these, along with Russia will seek to wipe out Israel, but will be destroyed & judged by Yahweh God Himself when His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ comes to judge them. In this article I am not assuming that everyone within Christendom is a Nazi fascist or that every one within the different shades of Islam is a Jihadist. HOWEVER it is a heresy that has led to the needless hatred & persecution against the Jewish race since the advent of Roman Catholicism & is now even more rampant since the advent of Islam. The demonization of the Jews, the Crusades, the Holocaust of World War 2, the continued opposition of the United Nations to the State of Israel, & the view of the regathering of Jews in their homeland as an illegal occupation all have their root in this teaching. If you chose to still believe Replacement Theology it may however effect what you believe in the following ways: -Your attitude towards Jewish people to some degree or another. -You may view the Jews dwelling in the land of Israel as an Illegal occupation. -Your eschatology may be Post-tribulation or A-millenial in their different forms -You may be a Calvinist. Viewing the elect (mentioned in Romans 9) as the Christian Church rather than Israel. -You will not pray for the Peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122) though it is exhorted in scripture. -You may be ignorant of the fact that the struggle for the land of Israel is nothing more than repeated attempts by Israel's Muslim enemies to gain strategic ground in order for them to launch their final military offensive against Israel to wipe her out. Note this whole scenario was foretold way back in the book of Ezekiel (over 430 years B.C.) -See Ezekiel 36:1-7. -You will be inconsistent. The last days prophecies concerning Jerusalem becoming a cup of trembling to all nations (Zechariah 12:1-5), the regathering of the Jews into the Land of Israel (in their spiritually dead state of unbelief) as well as all the other prophecies of Ezekiel 36 – 39, Isaiah 27:6 & others would not make any sense if the unregenerate Jewish Nation of Israel did not still exist along side the church of God (1 Corinthians 10:32). (Read Rom 11:1-6, 13-15).
God is angry with the nations (the Muslim & Antichrist majority) that will fight against Israel for Jerusalem in the last days & for the fact that they have parted the Land which really belongs to God, which he gave to Christ's brethren according to the flesh -the Jews. God will chastise Israel for her unbelief & will destroy the nations that attack her at Armageddon He will then reign upon the earth, literally, for one thousand years (See: Zechariah 14:1-9,12-17; Joel 3:1-3, 9-12).
