It would seem quite easy and simple to think about Israelites at the time of Abraham as Egyptians. They did exactly some of the things done in Egypt (According to the History books). They owned slaves and they treated them, as any on the face of the earth, "Without Justice".
As far as Ishmael and his mother Hagar are concerned, I truly feel very sorry for both of them. This passage found in the book of "Genesis" makes me think really hard about my relationship with "Elohim my Almigthy and Everlasting God" (the name of the God "Jesus" spoke about) that the scriptures have been manipulated to suit those writing it.
And further more, as a believer and follower of "Jesus Christ The Messiah" son of "Elohim", "Prince Of Peace", The One the prophet "Isaiah" spoke about in chapter 53; Centuries before JESUS was born, love Elohim above anything else and, Love Your Neighbors As You Love Yourself.
May Elohim bless us all, for we are all in this together, whether we like it or not
