JEWS, NETANYAHU, FRANCE, ISLAM AND THE AGENDA


World Leader Paris France Unity March

Well I haven’t cross posted much from Danny Jeffrey lately but you are going to get a good dose of that today.

 

Danny shines a spotlight on the unity march of world leaders in Paris after the Islamic terrorist massacre at the Charlie Hebdo building in that French city. Danny will point out there was a load of hypocrisy going on behind the scenes in that so-called unity march that America’s Mainstream Media (MSM) in a typical Left oriented process failed to tell the rest of the story.

 

The leaders Danny spends some quality time examining are French President Francois Hollande, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the pretend leader Palestinian National Authority (usually abbreviated as PA) President Mahmoud Abbas (also Chairman of the terrorist umbrella organization Palestinian Liberation Organization [PLO]).

As a rule, with very few exceptions, politicians sicken me. Benjamin Netanyahu is one such exception. Unlike most political figures Bibi has the best interest of his people at heart, and does his best to provide for those interests in the face of a politically corrupt world. He was one of the world leaders up front in the anti-terrorism march of two million people in Paris. That is what we saw and in his courage he inspired not only the Jews of the world, but all freedom loving people everywhere. And now the back-story: The French political figures did not want him there!

 

Haaretz … January 12, 2015
Hollande asked Netanyahu not to attend Paris memorial march

French President Francois Hollande conveyed a message to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the weekend asking him not to come to Paris to take part in the march against terror on Sunday, according to an Israeli source who was privy to the contacts between the Elysees Palace and the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem. The fact that this message had been conveyed was first reported by Channel 2.

Netanyahu was informed that if he did go to Paris then Hollande would also invite Mahmoud Abbas as well. Well, Bibi went anyway and delivered a message to the Jews of France…

PM Benjamin Netanyahu takes part in mass anti-terror march in Paris • I marched with world leaders to unite against terrorism, he says • Any Jew who wants to move to Israel will be received with open arms and warm hearts, Netanyahu says.

Now we come to the political rhetoric that sickens me. France has long supported the Palestinian Authority in their fight against Israel.

New York Times … December 2, 2014

So much hatred is spewed against the Jews of France, not only by the Muslims but by the powers that be, and many of the native French people as well, and yet we see the following:

YNET News … January 11, 2015
French PM Valls: If 100,000 Jews leave, France will no longer be France

France’s Agence Juive, which tracks Jewish emigration, estimates that more than 5,000 Jews left France for Israel in 2014, up from 3,300 in 2013, which was a 73 percent increase on 2012.

Surely there is a reason for the PM to make such a statement. Actually there are two. Reason number one: Money. Many when thinking of Jews think of money, and for good reason. They are a serious stable people and they build businesses, from the corner fruit stand to banks. If 100,000 Jews left France and took their money and businesses with them, the economy would naturally suffer the consequences.

Reason number two: Jews are the scapegoats of the world. Western leaders have their own reason for allowing mass immigration of a people that they know are going to destroy our very cultures. This is part of their long term agenda and they are fully aware that Islamic immigration will lead to widespread civil war, and they want that immigration to continue unimpeded. To this end they need a scapegoat, i.e.: The Jews.

HOLLANDE: TERROR ATTACKS ‘ANTI-SEMITIC’, BUT ‘FANATICS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM’

Hollande is a traitor to his people and an apologist for terrorism. There were two attacks, one on a small Jewish market and a much larger one on a satirist publication. To detract from the fact that terrorists were intent on killing anyone who got in their line of fire he managed to defend Islam and tell his gullible followers that this was only an anti-Semitic attack.

In a recent essay by guest blogger Paul Collings, Paul points out a very clever bit of political skullduggery on the part of Hollande. Mass murder had been committed in Paris and the people were frightened, leading to thousands gathering to protest in the streets of Paris. President Hollande cleverly stepped up and called for a Unity March of the people. He also changed the theme from protesting Islamic violence to one of unity with the immigrants of France.

Now we still have to deal with Bibi’s invitation to the Jews of France to move to Israel. Both the President and Prime Minister do not want the Jews to pack their belongings and go, as France still needs them for the two reasons mentioned above, and so…

Islamic Terror in Paris

 

Jewish schools, synagogues, businesses, homes, and individuals have long been under threat from the Muslims of France. This is a token gesture that will cost Jewish lives. A sensible, honest and honorable leader would call for an immediately suspension of Islamic immigration and begin deporting those non-productive and dangerous Muslims already living among them, but this will not happen. Such actions would require sensible, honest and honorable leaders and today they are few and far between.

Islam is spreading worldwide taking terrorism with them wherever they go, and they continue to have a welcome mat laid out before them. There must be a reason, and there is.

Think back to when Obama took office and appointed Eric Holder as the nation’s new Attorney General. Immediately they launched the plan to close Gitmo and announced their intentions to try Islamic terrorists simply as criminals in a court of law. Fortunately they were stopped temporarily, but now Obama is releasing about five terrorists a week and sending them back home for the final push that will begin this year. But the long range effect of that Obama/Holder plan has taken root. Now terrorists are no longer regarded as terrorists, just criminals.

Today, terrorists are being defined as being mentally ill or criminals, and those people who dare speak against the Islamic incursions and subterfuge are the truly evil ones.

Unlike Obama who refuses to say Islam and terrorism in the same sentence, the leaders of Germany will, but they create a false dichotomy between Islam and Islamic extremists. Needless to say, progressive Angela Merkel castigates her own people to further invite yet more terrorists into Germany.

The above photo was taken in late December. Since then the Paris massacre has had a great effect on the events as they unfold. Today Pegida had its biggest rally yet with a crowd estimated at between 25,000 and 40,000. Today’s crowd also had a bad attitude about Chancellor Merkel…

Look at that crowd above. That is not just a few people, and each and all are concerned about their future and the future of their children. Not to worry. The stats show that only one out of ten Muslims want to murder Germans. The last census in 2010 showed a Muslim population there of 4,119,000. Ten percent means that only 411,900 want to go on a murderous rampage, while the ‘moderates’ are quite content to slowly take control. One way or the other they do plan to rule, and Germany’s leaders ‘seem’ to be aiding them in their goal.

I believe that Breitbart said it best with the following:

The above headline should scare the daylights out of any leader of any western nation, and yet it does not. The Iranians have their plans, but so too do the leaders of the west. The plans of Islam are straight forward and to the point. They plan to dominate the world. The plans of our leaders are somewhat more devious, as they plan to use Islam that they, the progressives, will dominate the world.

 

Nothing better illustrates the progressive tactics than our latest election. Promises, promises, and still more promises, all to be broken as the voters are cast aside in pursuit of a liberty destroying agenda across all of the nations of the western cultures. While Americans are still Dancing With The Stars, and playing video games, some of the people of Europe are slowly beginning to realize that they are in a no win situation. The cause? The same one that is destroying America; the progressive agenda.

French citizens carry out such a massacre, and Muslims pay the price.

Muslims, forever on the attack while claiming to be the victims, and this charade is supported by the liberal, progressive left. Next we must examine that agenda.

The Winds of Anti-Semitism


Dry Bones - Israel - Prez vs PM history

 

This year from sunset on May 5th through sunset on May 6th Israel celebrated its Independence achieved by hard fighting in 1948 after five (or six) invading Arab armies came at the newly formed Israel (SEE Also HERE) to steal the Jewish homeland again. The miracle is Israel survived the Arab-Muslim aim of exterminating Jews and terminating the Jewish State.

 

Justin Smith writes an essay that touches on the recent Independence Day and Secretary John Kerry’s insidious pro-Palestinian accusation of calling Israel an apartheid state.

The Winds of Anti-Semitism

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 5/10/2014 1:48 PM

 

For the past sixty-six years of this modern era, Israel has been forced to defend itself, day in and day out, from a cohesive group of fifty-seven Islamic nations across the globe, even though, since its new founding – “the Jewish State, to be called ‘Israel'” – on “the eve of the Sabbath, the 6th Iyar, 5708 (15th May, 1948), Israel has appealed to the Muslims to preserve peace and participate in the rebuilding of the State on the basis of “full and equal citizenship”. But now, the decades have shown that the Islamofascists want nothing less than all of “Palestine” and the destruction of Israel, and Israel is doubly indemnified by an evil wind of anti-Semitism blowing through the international community, the U.S. State Department and the Obama administration.

 

On April 23, 2014, a nine-month long “peace talk” series of negotiations collapsed, after the White House and Secretary of State John Kerry seemed reluctant to introduce a more reasoned approach, that did not require so much more of Israel than it did the Palestinian Authority. Kerry was on a fool’s errand, if he actually thought Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would agree to expel 650,000 Jews living in so-called “Palestinian territory”, such as East Jerusalem; this same day, Kerry’s final-status agreement died, as Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) leaders held hands aloft with those of the Hamas terrorists, and Israel immediately froze any further talks indefinitely.

 

On April 28th, 2014 during a White House meeting, Obama attempted to coerce and intimidate Israel by issuing a veiled threat that the U.S. might not be able to properly defend or protect Israel, if the U.S. led peace talks were not soon renewed. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded that he would never compromise on Israel’s security.

 

A few days after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas signed a unity deal with Hamas and the Islamic Jihad terrorist groups, John Kerry told the Trilateral Commission (April 29), in a blatant act of anti-Semitism, that if Israel does not cut a deal with the Palestinians soon, it will either cease to be a Jewish state or it will become “an apartheid state.” This represents the first time a sitting U.S. Secretary of State has publicly endorsed an anti-Semitic view of Jews and the Jewish state.

 

With anti-Semites such as Obama and John Kerry at the helm of these peace talks, how could anyone expect them to succeed?

 

According to the 1998 Rome Statute, Apartheid is a crime of intent, not outcome. The Palestinians across their political and ideological spectrum have the malicious intent to found a state based on anti-Jewish bigotry and ethnic cleansing, while no Israeli leader or faction has any intention of basing national policies on racial subjugation in any form.

 

And yet, it is the Palestinians who demand that many areas designated for their homeland must be cleansed of all Jewish presence, before they will agree to accept sovereign responsibility for it. These “peace-loving” Muslims are so imbued with genocidal hatred for Jews that they insist all 650,000 Jews living in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria must be forcibly removed from their homes.

 

So who is it that wants an “Apartheid State”, if not the PLO and their champion John Kerry?

 

To make matters worse, Tzipi Livni, Israeli Justice Minister and chief negotiator, has regularly weakened Israel’s position and enabled Kerry’s hostile and bigoted policy views, because she owes both positions largely to the Obama administration’s support. And, then of course there are the leftist Jews of J-Street, an American Jewish group, who use deceptive rhetoric to agitate against Israel, have embraced the PLO’s unity pact with Hamas and the Islamic Jihad and are now defending Kerry’s “apartheid” remarks.

 

Last month President Abbas signed 15 international treaties after the collapse of the peace talks. Two of these were the Geneva Convention of 1949 and the 1977 protocols on the laws of war. By signing these, the PLO leaders believe they are now recognized as an “occupied state”, which if true would undermine Israel’s contention that the 1967 territories are disputed.

 

Mustafa Barghouti, a member of the PLO’s central council, stated on April 29th: “We will proceed with UN treaties and gradually into UN agencies, the last of which will be the International Criminal Court”, as he suggested that the Palestinian’s would pursue Israel’s “war crimes” and that “There will be a moment when Israel will be brought to justice.”

 

Former Mossad intelligence director, Efraim Halevy told Israel Radio, “In the eyes of our rivals, it is in the end of the day a sign of weakness__ because they get something without giving anything”. But a senior officer stated, “Official rebuke, special reports, fact-finding missions and condemnations__ they (the PLO) are not ready for that,” as he alluded to how easy it is to show that human rights are being systematically violated everyday in Gaza.

 

“On the 29th November, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution calling for the establishment of a Jewish State in Eretz Israel; the General Assembly required the inhabitants of Eretz Israel to take such steps as were necessary on their part for the implementation of that resolution. This recognition by the United Nations of the right of the Jewish people to establish their state is irrevocable” (The Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel).

 

Unilateral actions hold very clear lessons and dangers, as Israel learned through a 2005 disengagement from Gaza with thousands of rockets raining down on southern Israel, something Mahmoud Abbas may well soon discover. PLO negotiator, Saeb Erekat recently stated, “Israel cannot maintain the status quo”, and he is right, for reasons far removed from his own.

 

The propaganda and twisted rhetoric of the Islamofascists/ the PLO have led them into a dream of destruction and bloodshed, of injustice masquerading as justice and rights based upon falsehoods. And now, Abbas is considering a move to disband the Palestinian Authority and its security forces, to burden Israel with the responsibility for “the state under occupation”, scape-goating the Jewish state and inhumanely using “Palestinian refugees” as a war weapon against Israel; so, in light of this fact, Israel must move swiftly towards a One-State Solution, annexing Gaza and the West Bank, and in the process, Israel must correct the detrimental effects of 66 years of bending over backwards in the name of peace and human dignity.

 

“This is the natural right of the Jewish people to be the masters of their own fate, like all other nations, in their own sovereign state…..Placing our trust in the Almighty, we affix our signatures to this proclamation….on the soil of the Homeland, in the city of Tel Aviv…..” signed: David Ben – Gurion and 37 other founders of the State of Israel (Establishment of the State of Israel).

Blog Editor Introduction to Glick’s “Time for consequences”

Blog Editor: John R. Houk

(The intro is in no way associated with the Glick’s original essay.)

 

Hamas and Islamic Jihad (aka Palestine Islamic Jihad or PIJ) are both on the U.S. government terrorist list. Which translate to the fact their leadership then are war criminals. A couple of weeks ago Mahmoud Abbas signed a bunch of international protocols as if the Palestinian Authority (PA) was a sovereign nation. The PA is not a sovereign nation. The PA is an autonomous governing body legitimized by the Oslo Accords which was supposed to build a situation between the Jewish State of Israel and the PA of agreed upon building blocks that would lead to a sovereign Palestinian State. The problem has been Israel has given and given while the PA has refused to recognize Israel as a Jewish State, uses their Media and schools to inculcate Jew-hatred and demands that Jerusalem – Israel’s Capital City – should be split back to pre-1967 when the so-called West Bank was part of sovereign Jordan and that portion of the Jerusalem become a Palestinian State Capital City. Oh yes we can add to the PA demand of flooding descendants of refugees that were told to flee the new Jewish State while about 5 or 6 invading armies made an effort to drive Jews into the sea make the Jewish land all Muslim controlled. Of course all of the PA demands are unworkable for Israel to remain a secure nation. It would set up Israel for a combined Palestinian State invasion undoubted coupled with the military of other Jew-hating nations to again drive Jews into the sea and initiate yet another Holocaust. (By the way starting at sunset on 4/27/14 and lasting through sunset on 4/28/14 is Holocaust Memorial Day – aka Yom HaShoah)

 

Abbas’ signing of those international protocols was yet another breach of the Oslo Accords. Just to place the icing on the duplicitous PA intentions Mahmoud Abbas has signed a unity agreement with both the Islamic terrorist organizations Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Caroline Glick points that Abbas’s unity agreement and the signing of the international accords (like the Geneva Convention) immediately turns the PA and its new partners into war criminals. Do you think Obama will disdain the PA and Abbas in the Quartet-Israel-PA peace negotiations?

Time for consequences

 

By Caroline Glick

April 25th, 2014

CarolineGlick.com

 

It’s hard not to admire Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s brazenness.

 

Two weeks ago, Abbas signed on to 15 international agreements that among other things require the PA to respect human rights and punish war criminals.

 

And this week, he signed a unity deal with two genocidal terror groups all of whose leaders are war criminals. Every leader of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the two parties that signed the deal with the PLO, are war criminals. Under the Geneva Conventions, which Abbas signed onto just a couple of weeks ago, he is required to put them on trial, for their war crimes.

 

Here it is worth noting that under the Geneva Conventions, every single rocket launch from Gaza into Israeli territory is a separate war crime.

 

Abbas was only able to sign the Geneva Conventions on the one hand, and the unity deal with terrorist war criminals on the other, because he is utterly convinced that neither the US nor the European Union will hold him accountable for his actions. He is completely certain that neither the Americans nor the Europeans are serious about their professed commitments to upholding international law.

 

Abbas is sure that for both the Obama administration and the EU, maintaining support for the PLO far outweighs any concern they have for abiding by the law of nations. He believes this because he has watched them make excuses for the PLO and its leaders for the past two decades.

 

When it comes to the Palestinians, the Western powers are always perfectly willing to throw out their allegiance to law – international law and their domestic statutes – to continue supporting the PLO in the name of a peace process, which by now, everyone understands is entirely fictional.

 

Why do they do this?

 

They do it because the peace process gives them a way to ignore and wish away the pathologies of the Islamic and Arab world.

 

The peace process is predicated on the notion that all those pathologies are Israel’s fault. If Israel would just surrender Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians, then the Arabs writ large, and the Muslim world as a whole will cast aside their support for jihad and terrorism and everything will be fine.

 

 
At least that is how Abbas analyzes the situation.

 

And so far, the US has not disappointed him.

 

The Obama administration’s immediate response to Abbas’s unity with terrorist war criminals deal involved pretending it didn’t understand what had just happened.

 

In a press briefing on Wednesday, shortly after Hamas war criminal Ismail Haniyeh signed the deal with Fatah and Islamic Jihad, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki acknowledged that the deal is bad for the peace process. But she wasn’t willing to reach the inevitable conclusion.

 

Rather, she averred, idiotically, “I think the ball, at this point, is in the Palestinians’ court to answer questions to whether this reconciliation meets the US’s long-standing principles.”

 

Two days before the unity deal, a reporter from Al-Monitor asked Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar if Hamas has given up terrorism.

 

Zahar responded, “Anyone who claims so must be drunk. How has Hamas abandoned the resistance [that is, terrorist] effort? What are the manifestations of it doing so? Where have we prevented the launching of rockets?” No ambiguity whatsoever there.

 

And Abbas just signed a deal Hamas, and with Islamic Jihad, the official representative of the Iranian mullahs in the Palestinian war criminal lineup.

 

No ambiguity there, either.

 

If the US is willfully blind to who the Palestinians are, what they are doing, and what they stand for, the Europeans are so committed to the Palestinians that they invented an imaginary world where international law protects war criminals and castigates their Jewish victims as international outlaws.

 

In the EU’s view, Hamas is an attractive organization.

 

During a meeting with Abbas last October, Catherine Ashton, the EU’s foreign policy chief, urged Abbas to sign a unity deal with Hamas. A statement from her office read that she views reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas “as an important element for the unity of a future Palestinian state and for reaching a twostate solution.”

 

And while unity between terrorist factions is something that Ashton considers conducive to peace, in her view, Jewish presence in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria is tantamount to a war crime.

 

In a statement released by her office last week, after Baruch Mizrahi was murdered by Palestinian terrorists while driving in his family car, with his wife and young children, to a Passover Seder, Ashton gave no more than a perfunctory condemnation of the war crime.

 

 
Four-fifths of her statement involved condemning Israel for respecting Jewish property rights and the rules of due process and international law in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.

 

In the EU’s imaginary world, being in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem while Jewish is a war crime. Murdering Jews is merely impolite.

 

The deal signed on Wednesday is the fourth unity deal Fatah has signed with Hamas. After the first one was signed in 2007, the so-called Middle East Quartet, which includes the US, the EU, the UN and Russia, issued three conditions for accepting the unity government: Hamas has to recognize Israel’s right to exist, abjure terrorism and accept the legitimacy of the previous agreements signed by the PLO with Israel.

 

As Zahar and every other Hamas leader has made clear repeatedly, these conditions will never be met.

 

But regardless of how Hamas views them, in and of themselves the Quartet’s conditions are deeply problematic. They themselves constitute a breach of international law.

 

The Quartet’s conditions assert that if Hamas and Islamic Jihad agree to them, they will be accorded the same legitimacy as the PLO. In other words, the Quartet members have committed themselves to granting immunity from prosecution for war crimes to all Palestinian terrorists.

 

Providing such immunity is arguably a breach of international law. And it exposes a profound and irrational dependence on the mythical peace process on the part of Western policy-makers.

 

Reacting to this week’s unity deal, Economy Minister Naftali Bennett said, “The agreement between Fatah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad brings the Middle East to a new diplomatic era. The Palestinian Authority turned into the largest terrorist organization in the world, 20 minutes from Tel Aviv.”

 

And under international law, including the agreements that Abbas acceded to just two weeks ago, Bennett is absolutely right.

 

Apologists for Abbas note that this week’s deal is as unlikely as all its predecessors to be implemented.

 

But even if they are right this doesn’t mean that Abbas’s repeated practice of signing unity deals with war criminals should be cast aside as insignificant.

 

They expose the lie at the heart of the peace process. The time has come to call things by their names.

 

Abbas is a terrorist and the PA is a terrorist organization.

 

In light of this incontrovertible fact, the time has come to treat the PA in accordance with international law.

 

Perhaps shocked by Abbas’s behavior, perhaps overwhelmed by the serial failure of every one of its foreign policies, the administration acknowledged that Israel can’t be expected to negotiate with a government that doesn’t accept its right to exist.

 

Administration officials even said that the US would have to revisit its relationship with the PA in light of the agreement with Hamas.

 

No doubt, the administration is convinced that it can revert to form and ignore reality once again the moment the smoke as cleared. But whatever its intentions, the administration’s acknowledgment of Abbas’s bad faith opens the door to action by both Israel and the US Congress.

 

The Israeli government and the US Congress should take the steps necessary to bring their national policies toward the Palestinians into accordance with the law of nations.

 

On Thursday, the security cabinet rightly decided to end negotiations with the PA. But this cannot be the end of the line. Israel must also stop all financial transfers to the PA.

 

Just as critically, Israel must stop cooperating with PA security forces in Judea and Samaria.

 

It must end its support for US training of those forces and call for the US to end its mission to assist PA security forces.

 

 

Israel must begin arresting and prosecuting Palestinian officials who incite for the murder of Jews, and charge them with solicitation of murder.

 

The government should assist Israeli citizens in submitting war crimes complaints against Palestinian officials and the PA generally at international tribunals for their involvement in war crimes, including their incitement of genocide.

 

As for the US Congress, last week, with the passage into law of Sen. Ted Cruz’s bill banning terrorists from serving as UN ambassadors, the Congress showed that it is capable of acting to force the administration to uphold US anti-terror laws.

 

To this end, in accordance with those laws, Congress must act to immediately end US military support for Palestinian security services.

 

The Office of the US Security Coordinator for Israel and the Palestinian territories that trains Palestinian military forces should be closed straightaway. Its personnel should be redeployed out of the area forthwith.

 

So, too, given that the Palestinian Authority now inarguably meets the US definition of a foreign terrorist organization, the US must end all financial assistance to its operating budget. Also, in accordance with US law, the US banking system must be closed to PA entities. Foreign banks that do business with these entities should be barred from doing business with US banks.

 

Abbas is not interested in peace. The two-state model isn’t about achieving peace. It is about blaming the victim of the absence of peace for the absence of peace.

 

Abbas knows his apologists, both in Israel, and most important in the US and Europe. He knows they will go to any length to defend him.

 

The Israeli Left does so because without the phony peace process, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, the Labor Party and Meretz become political irrelevancies.

 

The administration and the EU defend Abbas and the phony peace process because they don’t want to acknowledge the plain fact that Israel is the only stable ally they have in the Middle East and the stronger Israel is the more protected they are. Doing so contradicts their ideology.

 

So now Abbas is telling them that the deal is good for peace since it brings Hamas-controlled Gaza into the PLO and so reunifies the PA, which has been operating as two separate entities for seven years. And they may go along with it.

 

They’ve been perfectly willing to embrace utter nonsense countless times over the years.

 

Only the Israeli government and Congress can stop them. And they must stop them.

 

These phony peaceniks’ preference for Jew-killers over international law comes with a prohibitive price tag. Jews are murdered, war criminals are embraced, and the rule of law is rent asunder.

2 [Israel] press releases


Mahmoud Abbas & Benjamin Netanyahu

Ari Bussel has sent two press releases pertaining to Israel. The first deals with Prime Minister Netanyahu’s response to Mahmoud Abbas (aka Abu Mazen) allowing the PA to break treaty conventions by sidestepping negotiations and directly appealing to the U.N. to recognize Palestinian State-like treaty conventions with the Palestinian Authority. The second press release of an entrepreneurial effort in Israel promoting business start-ups among Israel’s minority non-Jewish citizens.

 

The first press release I am crystal clear that the Netanyahu led Israeli government is very displeased with the PA circumventing Israel’s National Interests and National Security to establish a Jew-hating Palestinian sovereign nation that refuses to recognize that Israel is a Jewish State. As an American the second press release is less clear. My guess is Ari Bussel is highlighting the fact that the Arab minority within Israel has the opportunity to better themselves economically via good old fashioned free enterprise.

PM Netanyahu’s Remarks at the Start of the Weekly Cabinet Meeting (Communicated by the Prime Minister’s Media Adviser)

 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today (Sunday, 6 April 2014), made the following remarks at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting:

 

“In recent months the State of Israel has conducted negotiations with the Palestinians in order to reach a peace agreement. Israelis expect peace, a genuine peace, in which our vital national interests are assured, with security first and foremost. During these talks we carried out difficult steps and showed a willingness to continue implementing moves that were not easy, in the coming months as well, in order to create a framework that would allow for putting an end to the conflict between us. Just as we were about to enter into that framework for the continuation of the negotiations, Abu Mazen hastened to declare that he is not prepared even to discuss recognizing Israel as the national state of the Jewish People, which we have made clear to both the President of the United States and to other world leaders as well.

 

To my regret as we reached the moment before agreeing on the continuation of the talks, the Palestinian leadership hastened to unilaterally request to accede to 14 international treaties. Thus the Palestinians substantially violated the understandings that were reached with American involvement. The Palestinians’ threats to appeal to the UN will not affect us. The Palestinians have much to lose by this unilateral move. They will achieve a state only by direct negotiations, not by empty statements and not by unilateral moves. These will only push a peace agreement farther away and unilateral steps on their part will be met with unilateral steps on our part. We are ready to continue the talks but not at any price.”

A Mockery of Peace


Obama's Idiotic Perception Israel-Palestinian peace toon

According to Abed Rabbo [secretary of the PLO Executive Committee], the US Secretary of State’s proposal includes Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish state; establishing part of East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine; resolving the refugee problem in accordance with the vision of former US President Bill Clinton; maintaining Israeli control of major settlement blocs and leasing the others back to Israel; Israel’s control over border crossings and air space; and the presence of US-Israel-Jordan-Palestinian security forces on the border. “The Israelis would also have the right of ‘hot pursuit’ of fugitives or suspected criminals in the Palestinian state,” he revealed. “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected these ideas because he wants to carve out the land he wants and refuses to discuss the Jerusalem issue. He also refuses the intervention of any other party in security matters, even America.” (PLO official reveals full details of Kerry’s plan; From Middle East Monitor, Translated from Safa; 1/26/14 13:42)

 

The Middle East Monitor writes through the filter of being Pro-Palestinian. You will notice the Pro-Palestinian bent if you happen to read the entire news report on Abed Rabbo’s disclosure. Typically the Palestinians intend to reject Kerry’s Plan because of minor details of having to recognize Israel as a Jewish State. AND that works for me because there is NO WAY Israel should give up its heritage of the entire city of Jerusalem especially the eastern half in which the Temple Mount is located. If the Palestinians shockingly gave up their nitpicking and accept the Kerry Plan for a Two-State Solution then Israel’s concurrence would not only mean treason to Jew heritage but also set the framework for the Jewish State’s demise through indefensible borders.

A Mockery of Peace

Israel gives the world no peace, it bars slumber, it teaches the world to be discontented and restless as long as the world has not God. -Jacques Maritain

The modern racism, which yearned to eliminate Jews from society as a gardener would root out weeds, the sort of racism that allowed pogroms to flourish across Russia and Europe in the 1890s and culminated in the death camps of the 1940s in Nazi Germany, is on the rise once more in Europe and America, with U.S. president Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry leading the way. In an overt act of anti-Semitism, Kerry recently remarked in the affirmative and in agreement with several European leaders that boycotts and sanctions against Israel may be needed to force Israel to accept the Kerry Plan for “peace” and a two state solution, as if Israel does not want peace and the Palestinians’ claims in the area are not specious and false.

While the Kerry Plan does call for the Palestinians to recognize the right of Israel to exist as the state of the Jewish people, two of its main points certainly must be non-starters for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: Israel is to withdraw from the West Bank to the 1967 borders, and East Jerusalem will become the Palestinian capital.

Since the land of Israel in 1948 accounted for less than a fourth of the land originally designated “Palestine,” and Jordan, an Islamic/Palestinian state that forbids Jews settlement rights by law, was carved out of the Palestinian “Jewish National Home,” how can the Arabs be said to have been excluded from a “Palestinian homeland”?

Just how much land will Israel have to relinquish in order to achieve real peace? All of it according to Yasir Arafat, former head of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, when he spoke with world renown journalist Oriana Fallaci in Amman, Jordan in March 1972.

President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority and head of the Fatah Party recently proposed an old NATO security proposal for the area that was favored by former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and former U.S. President George W. Bush. Abbas will accept a U.S. led NATO and Jordanian force into the Palestinian state indefinitely to prevent the sort of terrorism that occurred after Israel disengaged from Gaza in 2004. Abbas also allows that a “third party” can stay in the newly demilitarized West Bank “for a long time…to reassure the Israelis and to protect us” (the Palestinians).

No, this plan should not offer Israel any comfort. Abbas and the Palestinians will be the only winners, gaining their new state. Israel’s national security will be compromised, as they attempt to defend a barely defensible position from behind the 1967 borders. This places Israel at a severe disadvantage from the start, should any new conflict arise. With NATO’s ability to ensure any real security suspect at best, for Israel, it is like starting a chess game without one’s queen.

Many so-called experts are discussing this framework agreement, as though it is a morally superior endeavor to all previous peace talks. However, whether we speak of the 1915 Sykes-Picot Agreement, the 1917 Balfour Treaty, the 1922 British Mandate and through each successive agreement to the Kerry Plan, most of the world has sought to undermine the State of Israel, while proclaiming otherwise. And now, the U.S. government too is undermining Israel, America’s long-time ally.

Netanyahu does not trust the Palestinians to negotiate honestly, as he stated recently: “I do not want a binational state. But we also don’t want another state that will start attacking us.” And, intuitively, Netanyahu rightly does not trust Obama and Kerry, as was evident three weeks ago when he said, “Israel does not have to agree with everything America presents.”

The peace talks, scheduled to end April 29, nearly ended prematurely, when the Israelis announced on January 10, 2014 that they intended to build 1400 housing units in east Jerusalem and the West Bank. Saeb Erekat, Palestinian chief negotiator, was highly upset, but Erekat and all involved in this framework agreement process understood that settlement construction would continue full force during negotiations.

Although Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s political base opposes the Kerry Plan, Netanyahu sees a two state solution of some sort, as necessary for Israel’s integrity as a Jewish democratic state, with healthy ties to Europe and the West for the sake of Israel’s economy. In this light, John Kerry’s coercion and economic blackmail are especially egregious, despicable and unnecessary; Kerry has damaged any future peace process, harmed Israel and damaged U.S.-Israeli diplomatic relations, but many Americans did not expect anything less from a man of such low character.

Once one reviews the historical record and understands that the British gave away Jewish land to the landless Arab/Muslims who were displaced by Islamic feudal practices and extortionate taxation, not by the Jews, and, in conjunction one reads various quotes from decades past, one realizes anti-Semitism never goes away; it just becomes more glib: “The greatest contemporary hero (in the Muslim world) is Hitler.” – John Gunther, ‘Inside Asia’, 1939; in 1974, Syrian PLO leader, Zuheir Muhsein explained, “Our purpose…it (a Palestinian state) will be a point of departure…This State will be the backbone of our struggle against Israel.” This mindset prevails today across the Middle East.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stands against diplomatic storms that threaten to annihilate Israel eventually – God forbid – and liberal Jews in Israel’s Labor Party and in America who are advocating the Kerry Plan are making Israel’s situation tragic and unbearable. Bibi Netanyahu must reject outright this plan and Kerry and Obama, with all their bias towards the Palestinians, as Israel seeks new allies and economic partners; Bibi must reject Oslo and all previous accords. He must find the political will and support to annex Gaza and the West Bank, as he proceeds with a forced removal/repatriation of the Palestinians to Jordan or the rest of the Arab world. The world uttered not a peep when this was done to 2 million Russians, against their will, under the Marshall Plan after WWII, but listen to the outcry when this proves necessary for Israel. And, if the tragedy of Bethlehem under Palestinian control is any indication of things to come, at the very least, Jerusalem must always stay united and complete as the proper capital of Israel. All of this is preferable to a sham “peace” agreement that only serves Israel’s enemies.

Genesis 12:2 – I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great.

Palestinian Myths: Jerusalem is Ours


Dr. Amos Orkan’s 1991 vision for the Third Temple, which was intended to rise on the Temple Mount plaza. Photo by 'Dreamscapes: Unbuilt Jerusalem'. Fantasies of reviving the Western Wall, the sole remnant of the wall that supported the platform on which stood the ancient Temple, began to flourish with the conquest of East Jerusalem in the Six-Day War. Various proposals for construction in the Wall’s plaza piled up on the Jerusalem city engineer’s desk during the ensuing six years. http://www.haaretz.com/jewish-world/shavuot-2013/myriad-schemes-for-revamping-the-western-wall-plaza-have-fallen-by-the-wayside-since-1967.premium-1.523981

 

The Palestinian Authority President and the Palestinian Liberation Organization Chairman (terrorist organization) and the head of Fatah (principle terrorist organization within PLO umbrella) Mahmoud Abbas delivered a Christian message full of downright lies pertaining to Israel, Jerusalem and the Jewish Temple Mount area. Renowned scholar David Bukay refutes the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians leader by laying out the historical facts. You can believe a lie and be damned or you can believe the truth and blessed.

Palestinian Myths: Jerusalem is Ours

American Center for Democracy

 

In his preposterous Christmas greeting, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, claimed: “Jesus was a Palestinian messenger.” He also used the opportunity to deny the right of the Jews and their State of Israel, to their 3,000 year-old capital city Jerusalem. Carried away by his efforts to delegitimize the Jews and Israel, Abbas went on to say, “Our prayers are with the…mosques and churches (added emphasis) … of Jerusalem which remind the world of the Arab identity of our occupied capital.”

 

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson Yigal Palmor, rebuked Abbas’s “outrageous rewriting of Christian history,” suggesting “He should have read the Gospel before uttering such offensive nonsense.” Strangely, the Vatican did not rush to condemn Abbas’s outrageous declaration that Jesus (the Christian God) was a Palestinian (i.e. a Muslim, not a Jew).

 

However, we wish you a very happy celebration of the anniversary of the birth of the only Jewish settler whose right to call Bethlehem, home, has been never protested throughout the world (until now).

Palestinian Myths: Jerusalem is Ours- Part I

By David Bukay*

 

This latest attack is part of the Palestinian effort to delegitimize the Jews rights for Israel and their 3,000-year-old capital city, Jerusalem.

 

There is the common saying: “A grain of truth is needed to make a mountain of lies believable.” However, this saying does not apply to Palestinian claims. However, they rely on this saying to help sell the absolute fabrications and distortions of claiming Jerusalem as part their made up historical lore. For it is hard for average people, international media, world public opinion, and states’ leadership to grasp and internalize the totality of nothing relating the Palestinians’ claims and pretentions.

 

The Palestinian legends and myths, however, are tightly tied to the development of an intense propaganda machinery of denial of any Jewish sanctity for Jerusalem, as if “Jerusalem has always been under Muslim sovereignty from time immemorial.” The Palestinians do not have any historical, religious, political, or cultural connection to Jerusalem. Jerusalem is not and never has been part of their history. The mosques erected on the Temple mount during the Umayyad Dynasty did not achieve any importance in other Muslim dynasties until the 20th century.

 

Yet, two important facts combined together can be clearly discerned: first, that for the Jewish diaspora, from 135 AD onward, the Land of Israel has never become a politically independent entity with a distinct identity as a nation; and, second, that Jerusalem was never the capital city of any empire or any independent regime or nation, and was not even ever an important city to any of the empires that controlled it besides the Jews. There have been only three recognized national, politically independent entities in the history of the Land of Israel: the First Jewish Kingdom, from the conquest of Canaan (1400 BCE – 586 BCE); the Second Jewish kingdom, until the end of the Bar Kochva revolt (538 BCE – 135 AD); and the State of Israel, since 1948. This also applies to Jerusalem, which had been the capital of the First and Second Jewish Kingdoms, and now the capital of the State of Israel.

 

Never bothered by the facts and well trained to twist them, Abbas (Abu-Mazen), on February 26, 2012, in Qatar’s International Conference on Jerusalem, accused Israel of Judaizing al-Quds, while obliterating its Palestinian character. Moreover, he declared that Israel is robbing Jerusalem of its historical and religious Palestinian character and actively pursuing this goal on three fronts: First, by changing the character and architectural structure of al-Quds from its cultural and historical Palestinian roots. Second, by employing processes of ethnic cleansing of Palestinian citizens and sites, begun in 1967, with unprecedented acceleration in the construction of settlements and the demolishing of Palestinian homes with their historical symbolism. Third, by impoverishing al-Quds, because throughout history it has always represented a center of thriving of the Palestinian people.

 

Jerusalem in Palestinian Propaganda

 

This theme of an old historical Palestinian Jerusalem that belongs solely to the old historical Palestinian people is a central theme in the mythical propaganda, which is based on pure lies, total fabrications and factual distortions repeatedly released by the Palestinians. According the Mufti of Jerusalem, Israel forges and falsifies the basic facts and history of Jerusalem which belongs solely to Islam and the Palestinians. Israel is said to steal the original Palestinian identity of Jerusalem and its cultural heritage. This theme is reiterated in the Palestinian media which claims Jerusalem to be the religious, political, and spiritual capital of Palestine. As such, Israel has no rights to Jerusalem — not religiously, not legally, not politically, and not historically. Everything in Jerusalem is Palestinian in its purest origin. Jerusalem has been the historical, religious, cultural, and scientific capital of the Palestinians from time immemorial, the center of the Islamic world, and the focus of world civilization.

 

 

The Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian Imams frequently use lies and venomous libel terminology to deliver inflammatory sermons to incite its people. Israel is accused of acting relentlessly to destroy the city’s culture and history by erasing the city’s Arab, Islamic, and Christian historical monuments. Other accusations against Israel, referred to as “the occupation authority,” include “ethnic cleansing”; “Judaizing” of Jerusalem—replacing its Arab population with Jews; infesting Arab neighborhoods with super aggressive rats; and systematic distribution of addictive drugs to its Arab population. They claim that Arab Jebusite king Malkizedeq built Jerusalem, as the most glorious place in the world, the closest to the kingdom of Allah, that it was always populated by pure Arab Palestinians. There is nothing Jewish in the city whatsoever.  Moreover, they claim that any mention in the Bible to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is a deliberate falsification.

 

Furthermore, archeological relics are said to deny Jewish history in Palestinian Jerusalem. Not only is there refutation of the Jewish Temple from an archaeological perspective, but Jerusalem as a whole is denied any Jewish roots. Dr. Marwan Abu-Khalaf, director of the Archaeological Institute at Al-Quds University argues that:

 

“The archaeological treasures in Jerusalem emphasize the depth of the city’s heritage and history; they emphasize its Arabness and refute the Israeli claims that it is a Jewish city… It is known that perhaps under every stone and in every corner, on every street and at every turn in Jerusalem there are relics. These relics say, ‘We are Arab, we are Muslim, we are Christian.’”

 

Another Palestinian scholar made the following claims:

 

“Israel not only steals the land, but also the history of Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the capital of Arab civilization… Jerusalem is the religious, historical, cultural and scientific capital of the Palestinian people in particular and of the Arab nation in general. It is the pinnacle of civilizations of the entire world. When the Arab Jebusite king Malkizedeq built the city of Jerusalem, naming it Jebus and designating it the capital of his country six thousand years ago, none of the world’s capitals existed yet… The invaders who steal the city’s geography, are trying to also steal its history.”

 

He, who wishes to realize how Muslim scholars twist scientific truths and invent legends, is encouraged to read Dr. Marwan Abu Khalaf:

 

“The fadā’il al-Quds literature may have existed from the time of the Prophet and continued to be transmitted in the Umayyad and later Islamic periods… The Islamization of Jerusalem occurred in the first year A.H. (620 A.D.), the year when Allah ordered Muslims to face the city as their first Qibla, and when the night journey and ascension to heaven took place.”

 

Sheikh Kamal Rian of the Israeli Islamic Movement has taken an even more extreme approach, asserting that the al-Aqsa Mosque is more sacred than al-Medina’s because it is mentioned in the Qur’ān. It is the closest point between Earth and Heaven, providing the only direct connection and the entrance to heaven. The Qur’an was revealed to Muhammad in Mecca, and Muhammad ascended to Heaven in al-Aqsa.

 

Yet, the twisted facts reach the highest peak in the Palestinian claim that the al-Aqsa Mosque is the entire Jerusalem. Therefore, Jerusalem in its entirety is Islamic.

 

A collection of similar claims demonstrates the absurdity of the lies: Abraham was not a Jew; the Jews never lived in ancient Israel; the Jews never had any connection to Jerusalem; Jerusalem was never a Jewish city; there never was a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem; the Western Wall is not a Jewish holy site; the Tombs of Rachel and Joseph are actually Muslim sites.

 

Recently, a new trend cherishes Jerusalem’s (made up) place in the Palestinians’ collective national memory, thus imitating the two-thousand-year-old Jewish affirmation of allegiance to Jerusalem:  ”If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. If I do not remember thee, O Jerusalem, let my tongue cleave to roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.” (Psalms, 137:5-6).

 

To better indoctrinate the Arab/Muslim population, Palestinian television has produced a video clip saying: “Forget I my right arm; forget I my left arm; forget I the light of the eye and the cries of the songs — if I forget Jerusalem.” It is followed by the Friday sermon of the Palestinian minister for religious affairs: “Without Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state, as it was along the entire history, there will be no peace.”

 

The Legendary Jewish Temple

 

Palestinian propaganda has always aimed at denying the Jewish Temple’s location in Jerusalem. The PA’s Mufti, ‘Ikrima Sabri, declared that the Jewish Temple was in Nablus or perhaps Bethlehem, and that al-Aqsa predates the Jewish antiquities. Arafat claimed that the Jews “consider Hebron to be holier than Jerusalem.” Indeed, Dennis Ross attributed much of the Camp David failure to Yasser Arafat, who not only repeated “old mythologies” but invented “a new one … [that] the Temple did not exist in Jerusalem, but in Nablus.” Arafat told Clinton: “I am a religious man, and I will not allow it to be written of me [in history] that I have … confirmed the existence of the so-called Temple underneath the mountain.” However, later on he went even further in his denial of Jewish history, saying that not only had the Jewish Temple never existed in Jerusalem, but that it had never existed anywhere in Palestine.

 

Sheikh Muhammad Husayn, the director of the al-Aqsa Mosque, asserted that the Jews “claim that the al-Aqsa Mosque was built over the ruins of the alleged Temple … This meant to erase the Islamic culture and to replace it with their alleged culture … This is a place for Muslims, only Muslims. There is no Temple here, only al-Aqsa Mosque and the Qubat al-Sakhrā‘ (Dome of the Rock).”

 

This denial strategy is exemplified by Saleh Rafat of the PLO Executive Committee:

 

“We revive the Palestinian heritage and cling to it in order to counter all of the attempts by the Israeli occupation to steal the national heritage and to falsify it with the claim that it is their heritage… Every part of our heritage in our land, they claim is their heritage – even the tunnels they are trying to dig beneath the al-Aqsa Mosque… The Israelis claim that they are seeking an alleged Temple.”

 

The denial of the Jewish Temple is typically expressed through the use of the word al-Maz’ûm (alleged). The main argument is that no proof of the Temple’s existence has ever been found. An editorial in al-Hayat al-Jadidah in December 2011 is indicative of this theme that the “Jewish Temple” is a big lie, a pure Jewish invention. Mahmud Abbas and all the heads of the PA leadership used the term “Alleged Temple” almost 100 times in the years 2011-2, with their ongoing campaign to deny and to reject any traces of Jerusalem’s Jewish history. Abbas has declared:

 

“Israel’s purpose is to achieve its black goals: destroying the al-Aqsa Mosque, building its ‘Alleged Temple,’ taking over the Muslim and Christian holy sites, and destroying Jerusalem’s institutions in order to empty it, uproot its residents, and continue its occupation and Judaization… all of Israel’s archeological digs and tunnels… will not change the reality of the city… and will not create a Jewish right based on fantasy and legends… There will be no peace, security, or stability unless the occupation will be evacuated from our holy city and the eternal capital of our state.”

 

On many other occasions he stated:

 

“Jerusalem only has Islamic and Christian history; Israel’s ‘Judaization’ is stealing Jerusalem’s cultural, human, and Islamic-Christian religious history… Israel is creating artificial heritage with a Jewish spirit at the expense of Jerusalem’s true and authentic identity, as an Arab, Islamic and Christian city.”

 

Likewise, Jamal Amar, an archaeologist at bir Zeit University, has denied the existence of an ancient Jewish Temple, calling it “myth” and using the word “the alleged temple.” He emphasized the occupation’s feverish attempts to find antiquities, as architectural testimony, or any other sort of proof to support their hectic efforts to rebuild the alleged Temple, but claimed that all of their findings were from the Arab and Islamic periods, especially the Umayyad and Abbasid period, up to the Ottoman period.

 

Similarly, PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud al-Habbash announced:

 

“Jerusalem is the key to peace, and Jerusalem can ignite a thousand and one wars. Unless the issue of Jerusalem is solved, so that it returns to its owners; unless Jerusalem will be Palestinian, as it was throughout history, the capital of the Palestinian state and the capital of the Palestinian people, there is no peace. There is no peace without Jerusalem… The term ‘war’ cannot be erased from the lexicon of this region as long as Jerusalem is occupied,… Jerusalem has to return to its owners. And we are its only owners.”

 

And Walid Awad, former Director of Foreign Publications of the PA Ministry of Information, stated: “The fact is that almost thirty years of excavations did not reveal anything Jewish… Jerusalem is not a Jewish city, despite the biblical myth implanted in some minds… This is the greatest historic crime of forgery.”

 

The following propaganda is constantly promoted on Palestinian television:

 

“There is a view that where Masjid al-Aqsa stands was the Holy of Holies of the fictitious Temple. This is merely an illusion. There is no remnant of it. It’s a myth. A story of no value… after 60 years of digging, they have found nothing at all. Not a water jug, not a coin, not any earthen vessel, no bronze weapons, no piece of metal, absolutely nothing of this myth, because it is a myth and a lie. This digging has not left a single meter unturned, but it has achieved absolutely nothing.”

 

`Ikrima Sabri, the PA Mufti of Jerusalem, reiterated the notion: “There is not even the smallest indication of the existence of a Jewish Temple…in the whole city there is not even a single stone indicating Jewish history.” Jarar al Qidwa, former advisor on educational affairs to Arafat, concurred: “Solomon’s Temple, I believe, was built by the Canaanites… when our Canaanite forefathers came to Palestine; they built the Temple … in Jerusalem.” Taysir Tamimi, PA chief religious official also agreed:

 

“I know of Muslim and Christian holy sites. I don’t know of any Jewish holy sites in it… Israel has been excavating since 1967 in search of remains of their Temple or their fictitious Jewish history.”

 

The Western Wall

 

Not surprisingly, the Palestinians claim that the Western wall has nothing to do with Judaism, and that the Jews refer to the Western Wall in a “false and fraudulent way,” because it is the al-Buraq Wall only, located in the Mughrabi Quarter. `Ikrima Sabri, the PA’s mufti, described the Western Wall as “just a fence belonging to the Muslim holy site” and repeated the oft-heard declaration that “there is not a single stone in the Wailing Wall relating to Jewish history.” It is said that Jews have no connection to any part of the Temple Mount, including the Western Wall, and that the al-Buraq Wall and its plaza are Muslim religious property. As such, the Jews cannot legitimately claim this wall, either religiously or historically.

 

In a study published by the PA Ministry of Information in November 2010, al-Mutawakil Taha wrote:

 

“The Zionist occupation falsely and unjustly claims that it owns this wall, which it calls the Western Wall or Kotel… this wall was never part of the so-called Temple Mount, but Muslim tolerance allowed the Jews to stand in front of it and weep over its destruction… no Muslim or Arab or Palestinian had the right to give up one stone of al-Buraq Wall or other religious sites.”

 

Israel Wishes to Destroy al-Aqsa

 

Israel’s actions in Jerusalem and archeological excavation near al-Aqsa are viewed as part of a satanic plot, an increasing Israeli madness aimed at destroying the al-Aqsa mosque in order to establish the alleged Temple, claim the Palestinians. They go on claiming Israel digs tunnels beneath as part of “building a Jewish city underground at the expense of the old city, and its historic and holy sites… The occupation continues to pursue the excavations until it reaches its grand and dangerous goal of destroying the mosque… The al-Aqsa Mosque and the archaeological artifacts, religious structures and holy sites it houses are all under a serious threat of collapse at any moment.”

 

The Palestinians fabricate stories they use to accuse Israel of a deliberate effort to destroy al-Aqsa and to erect the Jewish Temple in its stead. They go on to claim that Israel is constructing a bridge in order to allow more than 5,000 soldiers in armored forces to enter the platform of the al-Aqsa Mosque in their failed attempts to look for their Temple, which they falsely claim existed. This bridge can hold hundreds of soldiers, police officers and vehicles, strategically placed to allow Israeli forces to raid the al-Aqsa Mosque. Moreover, “Israel is stationing missile launchers in the Old City in occupied Jerusalem for bombarding al-Aqsa mosque with missile attacks. The Occupation has closed the city’s gates to Muslims and Christians and is making the city into a Jewish stronghold.”

 

For the Palestinians, the result is clear, as put by Yasser Arafat: “I will not agree to any Israeli sovereign presence in Jerusalem, and “there is nothing to negotiate about and compromise on when it comes to Jerusalem.” In 2000′s Camp David Convention, Arafat demanded sovereignty over “Jerusalem in its entirety, entirety, entirety.” He reiterated that “al-Quds is in the innermost of the feeling of our people and the feeling of all Arabs, Muslims, and Christians in the world.” Jerusalem has become the center of the Palestinian cause, a casus-belli that “no Palestinian can give up.”

PA Glorifies Terrorism – Obama Still wants Palestinian State


Evyatar Borovsky actor - murdered by Salam al-Zaghal

John R. Houk

© May 29, 2013

 

Palestine Media Watch exposes the Palestinian Authority of glorifying terrorism against Jews in Israel. A former advisor to PA President Mahmoud Abbas praised murderer Salam As’ad Al-Zaghal for stabbing to death Evyatar Borovsky at an Israeli military check point. That former PA advisor is Sultan Abu Al-Einein. Upon finding out 5 Congressmen wrote Abbas an official letter demanding he repudiate and condemn such glorification of terrorism as hate-mongering.

 

This glorification of terrorism by the PA is representative of the kind of leadership instilling Jew-Hatred and Israel-Hatred into the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians. What is the Obama-led U.S. government thinking in supporting these animals in creating a sovereign nation that will have two National Interests – the killing of Jews and the destruction of Israel?

 

I can see the reason for the EU nations, Russia and the United Nations (See Also HERE) supporting a Palestinian sovereign state because Anti-Semitism has re-inflamed the National/International Interests of those governments. In the USA on a national basis Anti-Semitism is still unacceptable. Unfortunately Obama’s Foreign Policy toward Israel (See Also HERE) and the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians is stamping our nation as fellow Anti-Semitics along with the EU, Russia and the UN. Even though a majority of Americans are very supportive of Israel, Obama’s support of Palestinian State and forcing Israel to give up half of their National Capital City Jerusalem will brand us as Anti-Semitic in the eyes of history. The creation of a Palestinian State quite possibly could lead to a second modern Holocaust of Jewish people as Jew-Hating Arabs surrounding the sliver of land that is Israel destroy the National Homeland of Jews all in the name of Allah and its pseudo-prophet Mohammed.

During our recent meeting in Ramallah, you stressed your absolute commitment to non-violence in resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. We were encouraged by your remarks, and appreciate the time you shared with our delegation.

However, upon our return to the United States we were troubled to learn that a senior Palestinian Authority official, Sultan Abu Al-Einein, who previously served as your advisor holding the rank of minister, had recently expressed his open support for the murderer who killed Evyatar Borovsky, an Israeli who was stabbed to death by Palestinian terrorist Salam Al-Zaghal while he was waiting for a ride.

Mr. Al-Einein stated, “We salute the heroic fighter, the self-sacrificing Salam Al-Zaghal.” And he went on to note that “He [Al-Zaghal] insisted on defending his honor, so he went against the settler and killed him. Blessings to the breast that nursed Salam Al-Zaghal.”

We have also become aware that only hours after the murder, the administrator of Fatah’s official Facebook page glorified Al-Zaghal as a “hero.”

President Abbas, allowing this type of incitement and hatemongering to take place within your ranks is intolerable if you are truly dedicated to non-violence. We ask that you publically and officially denounce and condemn Mr. Al-Einein’s remarks at once and remove him from his position in your government. We also request that Fatah immediately remove its Facebook page glorifying this murder.

We look forward to seeing you take action on this matter and working with you to create a peaceful and prosperous future for the Palestinian people.

Sincerely,

Reps. Eliot Engel, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs

Ed Royce, Chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs,

 
Nita Lowey, Ranking Member of the Appropriations Committee,

Pillar of Defense #2: PA glorifies Hamas’ Ahmed Al-Ja’abari

 

By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Palestine Media Watch

 

PA leaders condemn killing of Al-Ja’abari

Official PA daily:

 
“His self-sacrificing actions (i.e., terror attacks)
 
will be told for generations to come
 
and will be eternalized in memory”

 

Palestinian Authority leaders have condemned Israel’s killing of Ahmed Al-Ja’abari, head of Hamas’ military wing, which came as a response to Hamas’ and other terrorist organizations’ continuous rocket attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip.

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas demanded that the “Arab countries in the Security Council discuss courses of action to end the [Israeli] aggression,” while Prime Minister Salam Fayyad “called on the international community to do its duty, act immediately to stop this escalation [and] force Israel to stop its aggression.”

Palestinian Media Watch has documented Al-Ja’abari’s statements on killing Jews on the soil of Palestine, “liberation of all of Palestine,” rockets that can strike Israel, and women’s participation in Jihad.

In a headline, the PA’s official daily referred to Al-Ja’abari’s death as Shahada – Martyrdom death for Allah, calling it “the crowning achievement of his life of struggle.” The article also said that “his self-sacrificing actions (i.e., terror attacks) will be told for generations to come and will be eternalized in memory.” Likewise, Abbas’ advisor Al-Aloul called Al-Ja’abari “the Martyr of the entire Palestinian people,” whereas a host on official PA TV sent “condolences to all of the Palestinian people on his death as a Martyr (Shahid).”

Others, such as PLO Executive Committee member Saeb Erekat, demonized Israel by referring to an Israeli “policy of war and terror.” Erekat stated in a press release:

 

“The fact that Israel continues to kill and target our defenseless people in the Gaza Strip is nothing but the continuation of [its] policy of war and terror. We place sole responsibility on the Israeli government and demand that it stop spilling the blood of our people for the purpose of election campaigns.”
 

Similarly, Israeli Arab member of Israeli Parliament Muhammad Barakeh said that “the Prime Minister of the occupation, Benjamin Netanyahu, has decided to strengthen his rule at the expense of Palestinian blood.”

The following are the excerpts from the official PA daily and PA TV:

Mahmoud Abbas:

 

Headline: “Eight Martyrs (Shahids), including Al-Ja’abari, and the aggression continues” Sub-headlines: “The president calls upon the Security Council to stop the aggression” “Egypt objects by recalling its ambassador in Tel Aviv” “Obama looks for excuses for the Israeli aggression”

“Last night, President Mahmoud Abbas sent a letter to the current president of the Security Council (India)… demanding that it take action to stop the Israeli aggression in the Gaza Strip. The president charged ambassador Mansour [the Palestinian Permanent Observer to the UN] with contacting the representatives of the Arab countries in the Security Council, to discuss courses of action to end the aggression. The president condemned the aggression and warned of the severity of the current escalation. He demanded for it to be stopped immediately in order to save our people in the [Gaza] Strip from the calamities of war.

President Abbas called his Egyptian counterpart, Mohammed Morsi, and demanded that he make every effort to end the Israeli aggression in the [Gaza] Strip.”

[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 15, 2012]

Official PA daily:

 

Headline: “The crowning achievement of his life of struggle was Shahada (i.e., Martyrdom death for Allah) – Flashes from the life of the fighter Ahmed Al-Ja’abari” “Self-sacrificing fighter, the Martyr (Shahid) Ahmed Al-Ja’abari, was unique. Those close to him described him as likeable, serious and strict, to such an extent that some feared his surprise visits in disguise to the [military] posts of the Al-Qassam Brigades and the harsh punishments that he imposed on those who slacked off and didn’t follow directions. Al-Ja’abari did not like to appear [in public], even though his name was heard in every corner and neighborhood in the Gaza Strip. Gaza residents did not exactly know what he looked like until he appeared [in 2011] with the Israeli soldier, the captive Gilad Shalit, during his transfer to the Egyptians through the Rafah Crossing. He knew well how to hide and perform tasks. After his commander [Muhammad] Deif was injured, he became the de facto commander of the Al-Qassam Brigades. In a short time, he managed to turn the Al-Qassam Brigades from a system of [separate] units into a military system. Al-Ja’abari (Abu Muhammad) vanished (i.e., died) when he was targeted by an Israeli reconnaissance aircraft, but his self-sacrificing actions (i.e., terror attacks) will be told for generations to come and will be eternalized in memory.”

[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 15, 2012]

Prime Minister Salam Fayyad:

 

Headline: “Prime Minister condemns the Israeli military escalation and the policy of assassinations” “Prime Minister Salam Fayyad condemned the Israeli military escalation and the policy of assassinations against our people in the Gaza Strip, which brought about the deaths of Martyrs (Shahids) and injured many among the residents… Fayyad called on the international community to do its duty, act immediately to stop this escalation, force Israel to stop its aggression against our people in the Gaza Strip and offer them protection”

[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 15, 2012]

Member of PLO Executive Committee Saeb Erekat:

Headline: “Erekat: The war over the Gaza Strip is a continuation of [Israel’s] policy of terror” “Member of PLO Executive Committee Saeb Erekat, condemned [Israel’s] latest attack and the assassination operations that the occupation army is carrying out in the Gaza Strip. He stated in a press release: ‘The fact that Israel continues to kill and target our defenseless people in the Gaza Strip is nothing but the continuation of [its] policy of war and terror.’ He added: ‘We place sole responsibility on the Israeli government and demand that it stop spilling the blood of our people for the purpose of election campaigns.’”

[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 15, 2012]

PA TV and Abbas’ advisor Al-Aloul:

 

PA TV host: “Ahmed Al-Ja’abari was the commander of the Hamas movement. Condolences to all of the Palestinian people on his death as a Martyr (Shahid).”

Abbas’ advisor Al-Aloul: “Condolences to all of us. He [Al-Ja’abari] is our Martyr and the Martyr of the entire Palestinian people.”

[PA TV (Fatah), Nov. 14, 2012]

Israeli Arab MP, Muhammad Barakeh:

 

Headline: ”Barakeh: Netanyahu has decided to strengthen his rule at the expense of Palestinian blood” “Chairman of [Israeli party] Hadash and [Israeli-Arab] Member of the Israeli Parliament Muhammad Barakeh said yesterday evening [Nov. 14, 2012] that the Prime Minister of the occupation, Benjamin Netanyahu, has decided to strengthen his rule at the expense of Palestinian blood. He added that Netanyahu strives to stay in office and hinder the acceptance of the State of Palestine as a member of the UN. Barakeh added: ‘The Netanyahu-Liberman-Barak government, along with the military establishment… knew what the best timing was to carry out the terrorist crime of assassination. It was preceded by a row of assassinations of [other] Palestinian activists as an attempt to draw a response from the Palestinian factions after which a broader attack [by Israel] against the Gaza Strip would follow.’”

The Left’s only enemy


PALWATCH- Christian-Jew-Hatred

Evidently the nation of Israel is experiencing the same Left-Right polarization that the USA is experiencing. Mahmoud Abbas stood at the UN podium and spoke egregious lie after lie (See Commentary on Abbas Lies) about Israel. The Israeli Right quite properly expressed the reality about Arabs that call themselves Palestinians; i.e. LIAR.

 

But here is some incredulity! The Israeli Left and the American Left praised the leader of the Palestinian Authority (PA – See Also Jewish Virtual Library) and Chairman of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) as a great seeking Liberty and Freedom for the non-existent group of Arabs that maintain they are Palestinians. Arabs as Palestinians did not exist until the Arab League via Egypt set up the PLO (Early Seeds of PLO: HERE and HERE) to create a reason for continuous attacks on Independent Israel to exterminate all the Jews living there. That creation date was 1964. Israel’s hard fought Independence from about SIX invading Muslim Arab armies were won in 1948.

 

Caroline Glick exposes the Leftists of America and Israel. Her theme is that American Leftists and Israeli Leftists don’t see a foreign enemy; rather they see their fellow citizens of the Right as the enemy. If the Left succeeds, Israel’s existence will be very tenuous.

The Left’s only enemy

Rival Palestinian factions sign a deal to form a unity government, hoping to end bloodshed between their followers and to win back Western aid halted because of the hostility of Hamas to Israel.  EPA/SUHAIB SALEM / POOL

 

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s legal term in office expired nearly four years ago. But his supporters don’t care. In Israel, Washington and throughout the world, Abbas’s supporters extol the authoritarian leader as a great moderate. In 2002, desperately searching for a face for the Palestinians that wasn’t Yasser Arafat’s face, the Left pushed Abbas out from behind Arafat’s shadow. Abbas, who served as Arafat’s deputy for 39 years, was upheld as a great moderate and placed in the invented position of Palestinian prime minister.

 

The fact that Abbas was an inveterate Jew-hater who spent four decades in the senior leadership of a terrorist organization and whose doctoral dissertation was a long denial of the Holocaust, was brushed aside.

 

His leftist supporters don’t care that he says Israel has no right to exist. They are untroubled by his 2008 rejection of then-prime minister Ehud Olmert’s unprecedentedly generous offer of peace and Palestinian statehood. They don’t mind that Abbas has refused to negotiate peace with Israel for the past four years. They don’t care that he has signed two unity government deals with Hamas or that he seeks to gain sovereignty for a Palestinian state through the UN and so establish a Palestinian state in a formal state of war with Israel.

 

They don’t care. But most Israelis do. Due to their recognition of his hatred for Israel and due to the terrorism Abbas has condoned and financed for decades, the vast majority of Israelis do not consider him a potential partner for peace. They do not believe that either Abbas or the Palestinians as a whole are remotely interested in being appeased by Israel.

 

As a consequence, most Israelis greeted Abbas’s speech at the UN General Assembly last week with indifference. In that speech, Abbas made clear – yet again – that he remains Arafat’s loyal deputy. The majority of Abbas’s speech involved a litany of libels against Israel, which he accused of everything from terrorism to apartheid, colonialism, racism, murder, theft, etc., etc., etc.

 

Then he moved on to his demands. In addition to reinstating his demand that Israel agree to every Palestinian demand as a precondition for negotiations, Abbas demanded that Israel release all Palestinian terrorists from its prisons.

 

No, none of Abbas’s attacks had an iota of truth to them.

 

But who cares? Abbas certainly doesn’t. And neither do his supporters. Their support for Abbas has nothing to do with what he says or does. It has to do with who they are and what they want. Abbas is their prop, not their partner.

 

Abbas’s Israeli supporters are the core of far-leftists who brought us the phony peace process with the PLO. Two thousand dead Israelis later, and with no peace in sight, their camp is much smaller today than it was in 1993. But it is still dedicated. And it is overpopulated by members of the media.

 

TIPPING HIS hat to this group, this week Defense Minister Ehud Barak announced in a media interview that he thinks that Israel should unilaterally withdraw from much of Judea and Samaria.

 

For most Israelis, Barak’s plan is self-evidently insane.

 

We left Gaza and see the consequences of that unilateral withdrawal every day as southern Israel is bombarded with missiles and rockets. We left and Gaza was transformed into a hub for global jihad, increasingly indistinguishable from Sinai. The very notion that our defense chief could suggest adopting an identical strategy for Judea and Samaria is both obscene and frightening.

 

What can he be thinking? Barak is thinking about elections, which are apparently about to be called. Barak thinks his best bet politically is to try to win the support of Abbas’s ever shrinking support base.

 

Barak lost his political base when he left the Labor Party and formed his own Independence faction with other breakaway Labor politicians at the beginning of 2011. He needs Abbas’s Israeli supporters to vote for him if he is to get elected to the next Knesset. Even more crucially, Barak needs Abbas’s supporters in the Israeli media. So to win their support, he opted to run on a platform of expelling Jews from their homes.

 

Barak’s move doesn’t tell us anything we don’t already know about him. He remains the political opportunist he has always been. His move is interesting because of what it reveals about the nature of Israel’s Left.

 

There is no rational way to argue that Israel can gain any advantage by surrendering Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians. If Israel departs, either Abbas will gobble up the territory and demand more, or he will swallow the concession and get swallowed by Hamas, which will demand more – as happened in Gaza.

 

Either way, Israel loses.

 

But that doesn’t matter for the Left. The Left continues to support Israeli withdrawals because its members know that the biggest loser of such an action won’t be Israel as a whole. It will be the Israeli Right. And that is all the Left cares about.

 

The only enemy they are interested in fighting, the only adversary they wish to defeat, is their fellow Israelis. And in a bid to win their support at the ballot box – and on the evening news – Barak has decided to embrace their cause. He will fight their fight against their Israeli enemies for them.

 

The Israeli Left is not alone in its belief that its number one priority is to destroy its domestic political opposition. Throughout the Western world, the political Left is increasingly rallying around positions that are in fundamental conflict with their nation’s interests as well as with the specific ideological commitments of the Left, for the sole purpose of gaining and maintaining power.

 

In recent weeks, the Left in the US has exposed its motivations and purpose in profoundly troubling ways. If Jewish settlement of the Land of Israel is the core of the Zionist revolution, freedom of speech is the foundation of America. Without Jewish settlement, there is no Israel. Without freedom of speech, there is no America.

 

IN RECENT weeks, US President Barack Obama and all of his senior aides and supporters have launched an assault on freedom of speech. They have attacked previously unknown figures because they dared to exercise their freedom of speech to produce an anti-Islamic film and broadcast it on YouTube. The White House pressured Google (which owns YouTube) to take the movie down. Obama’s media supporters have gone along with this shocking assault on bedrock American principles.

 

The Left’s support for Obama’s bid to repress freedom of speech in relation to the movie was not an isolated incident. Today the enlightened leftists of New York and Washington are apoplectic because a federal judge required New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority to post paid advertisements by the Stop the Islamization of America human rights group calling for Americans to support Israel against jihad.

 

The content of the ads is self-evidently reasonable. They read, “In any war between the savage and the civilized man, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.”

 

SIOA’s founder Pamela Geller submitted the ads to the MTA last year in response to a rash of anti- Israel ads calling for the US to end its support for the Jewish state. Those ads were published on New York buses and subways and on public transportation around the US.

 

The MTA rejected SIOA’s ad but the group sued. Citing the US Constitution, the court required the MTA to post them. When after a year’s delay the ads were finally posted last week, the US Left in the media and beyond had a collective fit.

 

From The New York Times to radical rabbis to pro- Islamic Christian pastors to The Washington Post, everyone is wringing their hands. In a televised debate with Geller, the anti-Israel evangelical pastor Rev. Jim Wallis condemned the ads, told Geller she was going to get Christians killed, (by what or whom, he never said), and demanded that Geller silence herself. As he put it, “Stop talking.”

 

It is important to be clear. The American Left doesn’t have a problem with free speech, per se. And they aren’t concerned – as Wallis would have you believe – that calling jihad savagery is going to get people killed, (by not-at-all savage jihadists).

 

The problem with messages like Geller’s is that talk about jihad distracts people from what the Left wants them to be thinking about.

 

Like the Israeli Left, the American Left doesn’t want Americans to think about the actual threats to the US emanating from the Islamic world. They want the public to think about what for them is the only real threat to their values and their ability to win and wield power.

 

That threat doesn’t emanate from the Islamic world where women are treated worse than farm animals, homosexuals are hanged in public squares, Christians are forcibly converted and assaulted, churches are burned to the ground, the annihilation of the Jewish people throughout the world is an ardent desire, and “Death to America” is a political program.

 

For the American Left, the primary threat to their way of life comes from people who oppose abortions and gay marriage and gun control. It comes from people who oppose unionization of government workers and nationalization of healthcare.

 

And it comes from people like Geller who state the obvious about jihad.

 

The reason that Islam is supposed to be immune from criticism is that for American leftists as for Israeli leftists, the only important battle is the one against domestic foes. And just as the abysmal results of leftist policies have left the Israeli Left with no choice but to shoot the messengers, so too the American Left must deal with policy failure by silencing the opposition.

 

In Israel, leftist appeasement of Palestinian terrorists has led to a horrific death toll and the obvious absence of peace. So the Left must silence those who have the temerity to oppose that failed policy. The Right’s most visible members are the religious Zionists, who are disproportionately situated beyond the 1949 armistice lines, and so the Left must destroy them through expulsions, no matter what the cost to Israel.

 

In America, the Left’s most conspicuous failure is its claim to promote women’s rights, equality and civil liberties in the culture war, even as it defends the Islamic world’s addiction to female genital mutilation, forced marriages, honor killings and executions of homosexuals for the “crime” of being gay. So the Left must silence critics of jihad and Islamism, and hope no one will notice its hypocrisy.

 

The upshot of all of this is that the Left must be denied its ability to dominate national discourses. Because Abbas and the pathologically Jew-hating society he leads is a threat to the Jewish state, while religious Zionists are not. And the assaults on American embassies throughout the Islamic world are not due to Internet movies, but to the savagery inherent in jihadist Islam.

 

In these perilous times we cannot permit ourselves to be led astray by those who insist we are our worst enemies.

Jesus did Walk the Courts of the Jewish Temple


Jesus Scourages Money Changers 2 lg

Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu writing for the Israel National News catches some information that Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas calls the existence of the Jewish Temple as alleged. This is typical double speak for claiming the Temple never existed.

 

Then Gedalyahu came up with a bit of logic that is lost on the West. If Abbas is claiming the Jewish Temple never existed then Abbas is saying Jesus never went through the Temple chasing out the money changers. I might it also means Jesus was never dragged to the presence of the Jewish High Priest at the Jewish Temple in the night the Sanhedrin condemned Jesus as a blasphemer for asserting he is the Son of God.

 

These are essential Christian beliefs of which the latter leads to the Lord Jesus Christ’s crucified death, burial and finally bodily Resurrection that delivers humanity from the bondage of this world age in which Satan is influential.

 

Where is the OUTRAGE from Christians in the West, particularly Biblical Christians from America?

 

Part of the lack of outrage is because the Western Mainstream Media (MSM) fails horribly in exposing the hatred that emanates from Islam toward Jews and Christians. There is also fault to pass upon Christian leaders as well. When the pulpit is silent about Palestinian Muslims blaspheming Jesus, then how is the Church to react appropriately in public national prayer to keep the Temple Mount at least as holy to Jews and Christians as it is to Islam.

 

Here is the story.

Abbas Denies Jewish Temple and Christian Theology

Abbas refers to the “alleged” Jewish Temple, but if not Jewish, how did Jesus chase the money changers?

 

By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Arutz Sheva 7 – Israel National News

 

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas frequently refers to the “alleged” Jewish Temple, but if it was not Jewish, there is no basis for Christian belief, as written in the New Testament in Matthew (21:12), that Jesus chased Jewish “moneychangers” from the Holy Temple. However, Christians so far have not reacted to the implicit denial of their belief.

 

The PA campaign to eradicate Jewish history at the Temple Mount, as well as in the rest of Israel, has escalated sharply in the past two years.

 

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) documented and translated statements from Palestinian Authority leaders, including Abbas, his advisor Ahmad Al-Ruweidi, clerics and ministers, all of whom used the term “alleged Temple” 97 times in 2011 and 2012.

 

PMW pointed out that the number 97 refers only to the term “alleged Temple” and does not include thousands of other denials of the existence of the First and Second Temples and Jewish history in the rest of Israel. Many Jewish sites, such as Rachel’s Tomb at the edge of Bethlehem and less than a mile from Jerusalem, has been given an Arab name by the PA, whose clerics claim it was a Muslim site – before Islam was founded.

 

Last week, Abbas said in the official PA WAFA news agency and in the PA official daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, ”[Israel’s] purpose is to achieve its black goals: Destroying the Al-Aqsa Mosque, building the ‘alleged Temple,’ taking over the Muslim and Christian holy sites, and destroying its [Jerusalem’s] institutions in order to empty it, uproot its residents, and continue its occupation and Judaization.”

 

PMW also uncovered Abbas’ statement “that all of Israel’s archeological digs and tunnels… will not change the reality of the city… and will not create a [Jewish] right based on fantasy and legends.”

 

The statement ended, “There will be no peace, security, or stability unless the occupation [Israel], its settlements and settlers will be evacuated from our holy city and the eternal capital of our state.”

 

Abbas has previously declared that “Palestinian” history is 9,000 years old and said last year, on the eve of Israel’s Independence Day, “Netanyahu, you are incidental in history. We are the people of history. We are the owners of history,” PMW stated.
