“... If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. If I do not remember you, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I do not set Jerusalem above my highest joy. Remember, O Lord... the day of Jerusalem...” Psalm 137
Today, is Thursday, March 29, 2012. Evil have been preparing themselves for many years. This is not anything new. When vociferous Ahmadinejad was given power by the people of Iran and they heard him calling for the annihilation of Israel, they did not raise a voice to say they disagreed. Neither did the world hear any strong Iranian voice disapproving and offering resistance when Ahmadinejad simply said that the Holocaust had never happened. Where were the Iranian friends of America gone, in such a vast territory that is Iran... It is hard to understand and even less accept that throughout the whole Iranian territory a single voice of sanity could not tell their compatriots and the world: “Ahmadinejad is not speaking for us. He is a nutcase. We, the people of Iran, do not condone and furthermore we condemn his behavior and the hate he is expressing on our behalf...” No, Iranian people have remained silence. Just as the rest of the world.
And now, sabers have been rattling in the hateful Muslim Middle East and as of this writing, savages are heading to one of the tiniest countries in the world. One, that, regardless whatever anyone can tell, it has been conceived, delineated and actually “promised” and “given” to its rightful owners, the Jews.
“And God said [to Abraham], Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son [at this set time in the next year] ... and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him... But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this season next year.” Genesis 17:19-21
“And the L-RD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land:
The East to West borders of the Land of Canaan were from the
the river of Egypt (the Nile) To the Great River, the Euphrates, Gen 15:18
The North to South borders of the Land of Canaan were from Hamat (which is 100 miles North of Damascus) towards the south to M'rivot-Kadesh 100 miles south of Jerusalemand to the Egyptian river, the Nile.
[This would include all of modern day Israel, the west bank (Judea and Samaria) of the Jordan, all of Lebanon,
and substantial parcels of Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.]
Thus saith the L-rd G-D; This shall be the border, whereby ye shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of Israel: Joseph shall have two portions.
And ye shall inherit it, one as well as another: concerning the which I lifted up mine hand to give it unto your fathers: and this land shall fall unto you for inheritance.
And this shall be the border of the land toward the north side, from the great sea, the way of Hethlon, as men go to Zedad;
Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is between the border of Damascus and the border of Hamath; Hazarhatticon, which is by the coast of Hauran.
And the border from the sea shall be Hazarenan, the border of Damascus, and the north northward, and the border of Hamath. And this is the north side.
And the east side ye shall measure from Hauran, and from Damascus, and from Gilead, and from the land of Israel by Jordan, from the border unto the east sea. And this is the east side.
And the south side southward, from Tamar even to the waters of strife in Kadesh, the river to the great sea. And this is the south side southward.
The west side also shall be the great sea from the border, till a man come over against Hamath. This is the west side.
So shall ye divide this land unto you according to the [twelve] tribes of Israel.” Ezekhiel 47:13-21
While Muslims argue that they have legitimate claim to Jerusalem, there is absolutely no mention of Jerusalem in the Koran. As a matter of fact, they do not pray towards Jerusalem, ever. It is also never mentioned in any of their prayers. It has also never had any relation with the life of Mohammed -and for that matter, it has no political or scholarly connection with Islam and has never been capital to any Muslim country.
As a matter of reference, every time the Torah is to be removed from the Ark for reading during the synagogue service, it is read: "For out of Zion shall come forth the Torah, and the word of God from Jerusalem" (Isaiah 2:1 and Micah 4:2). These are just two of the 821 times that Jerusalem and Zion appear in the Tanach - Jerusalem 667 times and Zion, usually synonymous with Jerusalem though sometimes referring to Eretz Yisrael as a whole, 154 times.
Comparatively, the Christian Bible mentions Jerusalem 154 times and Zion 7 times. However, writer Moshe Kohn specifies that Jerusalem and Zion do not appear even once in the Qur'an, just "as they do in the Hindu Bhagavad-Gita, the Taoist Tao-Te Ching, the Buddhist Dhamapada and the Zoroastrian Zend Avesta," that is, not one single time.
When the Kingdom of Judah lost its independence to Rome in the year 70, it became once again a colony. Later on, in the year 135, the Romans gave the country the name "Palaestina". The name Palaestina, which became Palestine in English, is derived from Herodotus, who used the term Palaistine Syria to refer to the entire southern part of Syria, meaning "Philistine Syria." Such a move was intended to aggravate even more the Jewish people. However, the real intention was to remove all memory of a Jewish presence. The name was unchanged by the next conquerors in line: the Byzantine Empire, and then by the conquering Arabs and their successors, the conquering Turks. And, whether Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, or Turks, none of them identified themselves as “Palestinians”.
Students of History know that until 1948 there was no mention of any "Palestinians". It was the United Nations Resolution 181 which partitioned the territory from the British Mandate for Palestine into two states - one for Jews and one for Palestinian Arabs. United, Arab countries objected to the creation of the Jewish state and fought a war against its creation and which turned to be Israel's War of Independence in 1948. Regardless of their numeric superiority, Arab countries lost the war. No Palestinian state ever materialized, despite vivid intentions to the contrary, from Muslim countries around the Land of Israel.
These days, Muslims are having trouble choosing which of their evil actions to celebrate and highlight most to the eyes of what is left of the civilized world. So, yesterday, Hamas celebrated the 10th anniversary of another one of their ‘heroic’ feats, the Netanya Passover massacre, during which the Hamas' Palestine Times website gave an astounding tribute to the evil Hamas terrorist who detonated the suitcase bomb at the Park Hotel in Netanya ten years ago. Reports state that the suicide bomber detonated the explosive device he was carrying and that the force of the explosion instantly killed 28 civilians and injured about 140 people, of whom 20 were severely injured. Two of the injured later died from their wounds. Most of the victims were senior citizens (70 and over) including some Holocaust survivors.
As some liberal opinions write, for once on an accurate headline: The Global March to Jerusalem is not all about Palestinian rights, “The GMJ aims to eliminate "the Apartheid, ethnic cleansing and Judaisation policies affecting the people, land and sanctity of Jerusalem" and insists that that its solidarity mission will be conducted nonviolently. The GMJ does not advocate a military solution to achieve their goals like Hamas and Hezbollah; however their militant agenda may certainly be implied.”
The author purposefully forgets to mention the rights that Israel gives equally to Jewish Israeli citizens and to Arab or Muslim ones, or even that there is a Druze MK, Ayoob Kara.
Regardless of how can one look at it, Democracy in Israel is not a name. It’s a fact.
The author of that article has one thing straight: The march intended to go “peacefully” towards Jerusalem, passing through Israel’s borders, is a heinous act, result of the manipulation of a pro-Muslim American head of state and his Muslim cohorts that are shaking the ground in the region -with one of their goals to destabilize the Land of Israel and possibly to at least want to erase it from the yellow maps the Palestinians are used to print already for decades without the International Community raising their voice.
What does differentiate the Muslim Palestinians and the Muslims at large with the Jews in Israel and throughout the world?
Their Koran and their prophet demand from the Muslims to dominate the world and impose sharia and ultimately to kill anyone who oppose Islam. Koran and Mohammed also demand from Muslims to perform stoning, beheading, mutilation, abuse women and children, perform pedophilia and do every imaginable horror in the world.
The Torah and G-d demand from the Jews to be the light to the world, to try to make this a better world... Jews are raised with the notions of Tikkun Olam, mitzvot, compassion.
Muslims live to die and are surrounded by horror and destruction.
Jews thrive in Torah and in a G-d that demands from them the best of the best.
