What can we say about the character of Esau? Well this much we know. He scorns his spiritual inheritance and blessings. A profane man, he lives by the sword or by force of arms. Does he put his trust in guns and military armaments first and foremost? Esau was always inclined to be violent and wrathful.

He has little patience for those whose proclivities tend toward nurturing and cultivating ( of the flocks). He scorns nurturing considering it evidence of weakness.(homophobia) He is not inclined towards cultivating crops or shepherding as his brother Jacob. He prefers to hunt and to get his food by taking it down as hunters do. Esau may well be the stereotypical hustler, predator and “bad guy”. Esau is forever at war among himself.

Arabs cant live together, ergo any prophesied Third Caliphate is likely doomed. Unless a new Saladin arises like Imam Hussein, there will be no Caliphate

I think that you need to reread Genesis 33. You have mischaracterized Esau.

Arabs (by ethnicity) haven’t controlled the caliphate since around 940. Various Kurdish, Persian, Berber, Circassian, Turkish and other groups have. Though the Prophet’s relatives were kept around as a figurehead right up to the Mongol conquest.

The Mongols didn’t care a hoot about such things. They rolled the last caliph up in his most expensive rug and ran a herd of horses across him.
