This jumped out at me:
Genesis 16: 10-12
The angel of the Lord also said to her, "I will surely multiply your offspring so that they cannot be numbered for multitude." And the angel of the Lord said to her, "Behold, you are pregnant and shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, because the Lord has listened to your affliction. He shall be a wild donkey of a man, his hand against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he shall dwell over against all his kinsmen."
These verses explain the deep-rooted conflicts between Arabs and Jews. Both Ishmael and Isaac would spawn great nations, and both were the sons of Abraham. The controversy lies in which one is the true heir of Abraham.
