Absurdity of Jewish Humanism!

The IDF’s Coordinator of Government Activities in Judea and Samaria, Major General Eitan Dangot, revealed last week that more than 60 rockets and mortar shells out of 460 rockets and mortar shells fired in the past year at the northern Negev from the Gaza Strip, were aimed directly at the land crossings from Israel into Gaza.

He said that Israel has invested over 50 million shekels in renovating and increasing the capacity of the Kerem Shalom crossing, the crossing through which most of the goods enter Gaza. Among the measures taken were increasing the number of trucks that transport goods into the Gaza Strip, renovating the land crossings into Gaza and increasing the range of goods allowed into the Strip and approving extensive projects in Gaza funded by members of the international community.

Major General Dangot further noted that Israel even regularly transfers luxuries into the Strip, including LCD screens, luxury cars such as Mercedes and Hyundai jeeps, modern refrigerators and whirlpool bathtubs. He emphasised that these goods enter Gaza daily and are not part of any special one-time deliveries. He added that Israel’s policy towards Gaza’s population has led to an improvement in the Gaza Strip and has resulted in an increase in the living standards there.

He added that evidence indicates an increase of 15% in GDP in the Gaza Strip, and an increase of approximately 11% in GDP per capita. (Could you name a country, through the history of humanity, which would treat its enemy with such consideration but got hate, rocket attacks and suicide bombers in return?)

‘Ugly Nazi’ Never Miss Opportunity to Criticise Israel

A new United Nations report that has been distributed to members of the Security Council strongly criticises Israel for using live fire against unarmed demonstrators who in May, tried to breach its border fence with Lebanon. The United Nations has been a frequent battleground for Israel.

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

Why don’t Anti-Israel bigots and self-hating Jews take 'flytilla' to Syria in support of the ‘democratic’ movement there? Why is the only democracy in the Midle East constantly targeted by international bigotry? Is it because it is the Jewish state, which they want to destroy?

Flotilla Financed by Terrorists’ Funds

IDF military intelligence has uncovered evidence that shows that flotilla organisers have received significant amounts of funding from groups that support Hamas and other terrorist groups.

Barack is Eager to Arm the Enemy

Ehud Barak and Avigdor Lieberman are at odds over whether Israel should renew her defence exports to Turkey which have come to a standstill. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is preventing the sale of Israeli military platforms to Turkey, which the Defense Ministry is trying to advance as part of a bid to repair ties between Jerusalem and Ankara. (Turkey is moving toward Islamic statehood and the enemy of Israel. Barak is blind as usual!)

Residual Effect of ‘Democracy’

Saboteurs again blew up a pipeline carrying gas from Egypt to Israel and Jordan on Monday, forcing a shutdown in the flow of gas.

Israel is Good Investment

$400 million worth of bonds had been sold to one of the unnamed largest sovereign funds in Asia. Industry insiders noted that China's sovereign investment fund, CIC, and Singapore's sovereign investment fund, Temasek, were among the largest sovereign funds in Asia.

Turkey is not a Friend

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan applied the brakes to the process of reconciliation with Israel when he learned on Wednesday, July 6, that the UN inquiry commission into last year's Turkish-led flotilla had ruled Israel's naval blockade on Gaza legal. (Symptomatically, international media again was not interested in promoting the news which has vindicated Israel!)

Obama's Flip-Flop Policies

President Barack Obama has offered to leave 10,000 troops in Iraq next year despite his pledge that all US forces would be withdrawn by the end of 2011. (When the President of the most powerful country says one thing and does another, nobody trusts his word - It might be ‘OK’ for election time, but not when you are in office!)

Reconciliation is a Farce

Hamas blamed PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas for being “not serious” about implementing the reconciliation agreement between Fatah and Hamas. Hamas’ leader in Gaza, Salah Bardawil, said that Abbas and PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad continue to arrest Hamas activists in Judea and Samaria and continue their security cooperation with Israel. (The reconciliation game is played in order to keep the status quo and avoid direct negotiation with Israel.)

Quote of the Week:

“The real opponents of Zionism can never be placated by any diplomatic formula: their objection to the Jews is that the Jews exist, and in this particular case, they exist in Palestine.” - Chaim Weizmann, Israel’s the first President.

Visiting Talmud and Byzantine Era Synagogues

Hundreds of Jews were allowed to visit an ancient synagogue from the Byzantine era on Friday morning. The tour, coordinated with the IDF, took place as part of a program to commemorate young hikers slain by Palestinian Authority terrorists. The more than 200 hikers first visited the ancient synagogue of Samoa and the nearby village of Anin, mentioned in the book of Joshua. They held morning prayer services in the synagogue. They then continued on to a second ancient synagogue, this one located in the village of Susiya, a town dating back to Talmud times that in recent decades has enjoyed renewed Jewish settlement.

The Biblical Land Titles

by Steven Shamrak

Christianity and Islam insist they have inherited the Jewish tradition and believe in the monotheistic G-d. All three religions include Torah (Old Testament) as the written word of G-d. It is considered a great sin to disobey or falsify the words of the Almighty! I would like to present for your perusal two biblical land titles:

“Sarah died in Kiriatharba (Hebron)…” “Avraham weighed-out for Ephron the silver that he spoke of in the hearing of the sons of Cheis, four hundred silver shekel, negotiable currency.” “This became Avraham's (possession) through a purchase before the eyes of the sons of Cheis...” (Genesis 23:2, 16, 18)

Abraham made sure the purchase of land at Hebron was recorded as a legal sale, not as a gift.

“Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, to you have I given it, as I spoke unto Moses. From the wilderness, and this Lebanon, even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the Great Sea (Mediterranean sea) toward the going down of the sun, shall be your border.” (Joshua1:3, 4; Re: Deuteronomy 11:24)

This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families.” Ashdod, its towns and its villages; Gaza, its towns and its villages; unto the Brook of Egypt, the Great Sea being the border thereof.” (Joshua15:20, 47)

Religious people believe that all that is written in the Torah by G-d is purposeful. Therefore, if you are a Jew, Christian or Muslim you must accept the will of G-d and recognize the right of the Jewish people to live on all the land given to them by G-d. Otherwise, you have been living a life of self-deception or hypocrisy.
