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?

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.

PA TV: Suicide bombers who killed 19 civilians on buses are “more honored than all of us”

Suicide bombers are a “candle that lights the tunnel of liberty”


By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Palestinian Media Watch


During a Palestinian Authority TV News’ broadcast from a burial ceremony for suicide terrorists whose bodies were handed over to the PA last month, the PA TV reporter described the funeral of Ali Ja’ara who murdered 11 and Muhammad Za’ul who murdered 8, as follows:


VIDEO: Suicide bombers are a candle “that lights the tunnel of liberty” for Palestinians – PA TV



“This is Palestine, which embraces its Martyr sons, who are more honored than all of us, and which sends a message to the whole world that its Martyrs are not numbers, but rather a candle that lights the tunnel of liberty for the Palestinian people on the way to independence.” [PA TV (Fatah), June 1, 2012]


Ja’ara carried out a suicide bombing on a bus in Jerusalem in January 2004, killing 11 people.

Za’ul carried out a suicide bombing on a bus in Jerusalem in February 2004, killing 8 people.

Palestinian Media Watch has reported on the PA’s official terminology guide, which instructs Palestinians never to use the term “suicide bomber” but the words “Martyrdom Seeker.”

PMW has also documented that PA TV recently honored suicide bombers and other terrorists.

PMW has reported on this PA policy to glorify terrorists as heroes and role models.

The Insanity of Creating Palestinian State

Cleric- Kill Jews

John R. Houk

© June 13, 2012


Let’s see, how to start this post. Way back in 1993 Israel and the leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Yasser Arafat under the direction of President Slick Willie Clinton came to an agreement for a path to Palestinian statehood via the Oslo Accords.


Essentially both sides were displeased with the other on following through with their commitments. The Palestine Authority (PA) which was created out of the PLO believed they would receive infrastructure upgrades that would benefit the economy of Arabs that call themselves Palestinians along with full authority of Gaza and Judea-Samaria (aka West Bank) and giving the boot to Jews living within the land. Israel felt the newly created PA would track down terrorists even at the expense of human rights like most Arab regimes do and stop the violence inside Israel.


I’m a Bible kind-of-guy so I don’t believe Israel should give up Judea-Samaria to a group of Arabs that have no ancient heritage to the land. Nonetheless, if I was Israel I would not pour money into a group of people that exist only to kill Jews and destroy Israel.


So can anyone tell me why America is part of Russia, European Union and the United Nations to bring about the existence of sovereign Palestinian State that is committed to the genocide of Jews in sovereign Israel?


Palestine Media Watch writes about the culture of hate that exists with the PA and Hamas of Gaza. In an email subscription message PMW reposts and article from the Jerusalem Post honoring Itamar Marcus for founding PMW and keeping the deaf world informed in the true intentions of Arabs that call themselves Palestinians for the Land of Israel.

“Teaching children to hate”

JPost article about PMW findings

JPost Post: May 19, 2012


The Jerusalem Post recently published an article about one of Itamar Marcus’ lectures during his recent trip to the US. The article also includes the history of Palestinian Media Watch’s founding, explains some of the major goals of the organization, and lists some of its achievements. The article was distributed by the JointMedia News Service.

The following is the text of the Jerusalem Post article:


Teaching children to hate

Palestinian Media Watch head: Those yearning for peace “want to believe so badly that there is someone there on the Palestinian side.”

By Maxine Dovere

“If your enemy says he will destroy you, believe him.”

Those were the words of Itamar Marcus, founding director of Palestinian Media Watch, when he recently joined The Jewish Week Associate Editor Jonathan Mark on stage at the 92nd Street Y in New York City to discuss the Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership’s use of culture, education, and media to influence its population.

Marcus has presented evidence of Palestinian incitement to the U.S. Congress’s Foreign Affairs Committee and the Senate Appropriations Committee, and has lectured to Canadian and European parliamentarians and international security officials.

Palestinian Media Watch ( is an NGO (non-governmental organization) dedicated to disclosure of the factual content of Palestinian media, founded by Marcus 14 years ago. Marcus said his purpose is simple: “To get a real sense of what is happening in the Palestinian world.”

Marcus made aliyah from New York and lives in Efrat. In an interview with JointMedia News Service, he recalled the first tapes he received of Yasser Arafat’s speeches while working for the Israeli government during the 1990s. In the midst of a highly visible “peace process,” the Palestinian leader, speaking on Arabic and Palestinian TV, called for jihad, saying any agreements with Israel were “temporary.”

When Marcus left the government, he initiated Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), and began to “tape all of official Palestinian TV, read the Palestinian newspapers every day.” What he found was an ongoing demonization of Israel and an ongoing denial of Israel’s right to exist.

Marcus’s tapes were brought to the 1998 Wye Summit and given to President Bill Clinton. Soon afterwards, an Israeli, Palestinian and American negotiating committee to deal with the problem of incitement was established. Marcus was appointed to the Israeli team, a position he held until Ehud Barak’s election as prime minister. “There was no significant progress” with the Palestinians, said Marcus. “The Palestinians are teaching their children hatred against Jews, and ultimately violence against Jews and Israelis,” he said.

The Palestinians, he said, “like to depict the conflict as territorial while hiding this horrific underlying ideology.”

Marcus remains a proponent of direct contact between Israelis and Palestinians, which he believes engenders respect and admiration for Israel as a democracy and a supporter of human rights. “The tragedy is that the Palestinians were much closer to peace with Israel before the Oslo Accords,” he said. “An ocean has developed because of hate promotion by the Palestinian Authority.” Marcus said chances for peace may have been better in 1996, when after decades of contact with Israelis, a poll of Palestinians showed that 78 percent considered Israel to be positive in democracy and human rights.

Now, Marcus is concerned about the effect that the teaching of hatred and demonization will have on the ability to produce a peaceful outcome with the PA. Given the level of hate indoctrination, success-not only in negotiation, but actualization-remains challenging, he said.

“The only way to reverse the down trend in acceptance of Israel,” Marcus said, if for Palestinians to “drop the lies-the planned delegitimization conducted by the PA, and replace it with truth.” Marcus said Israel has helped the PA in many ways, including construction of its infrastructure, assisting its economic base, and developing its universities.

“The population is so poisoned by hate material and terror,” Marcus said. “There is suffering on both sides – but the Palestinians don’t realize they have their own leadership to blame. They destroy truth and replace it with hate.”

Marcus said the way to heal this untenable situation is for the West to suspend funding to the PA, to not give a “penny of financial support or diplomatic support as long as structures of hate remain.” He acknowledged that the PA “will have to go through a period of crisis. If the western world keeps funding corrupt government, there is no future… They pretend that [Mahmoud] Abbas is a moderate while he honors terrorists.”

“You can’t have a political peace structure unless it’s proceeded by an educational peace process,” Marcus said. Both content and nomenclature, he said, are important. Marcus called attention to the Palestinian media designation of Israel’s Minister of Defense as the “Minister of War,” its labeling of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as the “Israel Occupations Forces,” and its use of the title “resistance fighter” for Palestinian terrorists.

“It’s almost too painful, too hurtful, for many Israelis and American Jews to fully comprehend,” said Marcus. Those yearning for peace “want to believe, so badly, that there is someone there on the Palestinian side. When you look at the Palestinians, adults and children, singing about Tel Aviv and Haifa being Palestinian, or when you see their demonization of Jews and the de-legitimization of Israel and Jewish history, if you accept that as the official PA culture, then there’s no hope.”

PMW’s staff of 12 looks at all Palestinian media. Its purpose is not just to explore media, but also to study society, culture and education, and to “keep a finger on the pulse of the leadership and what they are teaching their kids,” said Marcus. “After less than a generation of hate indoctrination, only 7 percent of Palestinian teenagers accept that Israel has the right to exist,” he said. “For Israel to pretend otherwise will bring disaster.”


“Bringing up Palestinian children to hate is also stealing their future,” he added.
