Can They Prove This?
by Steven Shamrak
Another form of anti-Semitism is - through history only Jews “must” prove everything! For a change, I would like to see the enemies of Israel prove:
1. that people, currently known as Palestinians, are actually a national, ethnic or religious group, with long historic connections to Eretz-Israel, not just since 1948?
2. that they have the right, according to international law, for the land - Palestine, knowing that they rejected the UN “Partition plan” resolution 181, of Nov. 29, 1947 and the Security Council resolution 242, of Nov. 22, 1967.
3. that in July 1922, the Palestine Mandate was not created by the League of Nations in recognition of "the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine"?
4. that Yassef Arafat did not died from AIDS. They are going exhume his body, on request of his wife. This should not be difficult to prove - just a simple blood test!
Can they prove any of this? Facts only are welcome, ‘emotional’ anti-Israel rhetoric is not!
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Muslims have been killed by fellow Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan in several countries. Jahadists do not care about anything but terror, be it against “infidels” or other Muslims. Western powers have the means, but not will, to end those atrocities to do so. Perpetual instability creates endless opportunities for enrichment of cronies and political corruption. It is easier and more profitable than building a stable, economically sound and happy society!
Israel (too) willingly acceded to Cairo’s request for permission to deploy fighter planes and armored troop carriers in Sinai. It shared an interest in President Mohamed Morsi’s counter-terror offensive against lawless Islamist bands. But when sensational reports started coming in from Cairo about non-existent Egyptian victories in which an improbable “60 gunmen were killed,” they realised the “offensive” was largely bogus. Washington and Jerusalem strongly suspect that they should be worried about what the Muslim Brotherhood president is really up, especially after the sweep he conducted on Wednesday, Aug. 8 of pro-Western military officers and other moves. (This Sinai fake operation is the Muslim Brotherhood grab for power)
President Shimon Peres appears to be leading a coalition of government officials, MKs, and public figures who oppose Israeli action against Iran's nuclear program. Peres is undermining Israel’s position, Defence Minister Ehud Barak said in a weekend interview that Israel could not depend on the Americans to attack Iran's nuclear facilities. Barak dismissed a pledge by US President Barack H. Obama to move militarily against Iran's nuclear facilities next spring if sanctions fail to stop Tehran's activities. (Self-serving, corrupt idiots must be removed from political power!)
Muslim Brotherhood Complete Takeover in Egypt
Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi has sacked the entire leadership of the country's defence establishment. Defence Minister Tantawi and army Chief of Staff Anan replaced and military-issued constitutional amendments were cancelled. The Muslim Brotherhood's Morsi appears to be wasting no time in consolidating his hold over power at the expense of the military, which many hoped would be a moderating power over him.
PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas has accused Jews living in Judea and Samaria of training wild boars to uproot Arabs' trees. Abbas said. "…Attacks by settlers that find their expression in uprooting trees, burning mosques and even training dogs to attack us and sending wild boars to spread corruption on the face of the earth." Abbas made the claim in a speech in Ramallah on the eve of his appearance at the United Nations in September, in which he asked for recognition of PA statehood. The speech went virtually unnoticed in the media, except for some vigilant blogs.
Chinese Warships on Friendly Visit to Haifa
This is the first time a Chinese Navy flotilla has visited Israel. Their visit as guests of the Israel Navy will last five days and include ceremonies celebrating the 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and Israel. The flotilla is commanded by rear Adm. Yang Junfei, deputy commander of the Chinese fleet in the North China Sea, the highest ranking Chinese officer ever to pay an official visit to Israel.
More Problems are Coming from Egypt
Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi is studying ways of amending the Camp David Accords with Israel to ensure Egypt’s full sovereignty and control over “every inch of Sinai,” said his legal adviser Mohamed Gadallah. (The Muslim Brotherhood is planning to destroy, step by step, the 30-year old peace treaty with Israel. Egypt has already started moving M-60 tanks up to the Israeli border in Sinai!)
Quote of the Week:
“We may lose or win (tactically) but our eyes will continue to aspire to the strategic goal, namely, to Palestine from the river to the sea. Whatever we get now cannot make us forget this supreme truth." - Faysal Al-Husseini, PA Minister for Jerusalem Affairs, March 2001 - Enemies of Jews, not just Arabs, have never been shy to express their true intentions!
Six PA Arabs have petitioned the Supreme Court, after it ruled that Jewish homes in Migron would be demolished due to an Arab claim, demanding that the government give them some of the caravan homes on a temporary housing site that has been allocated for residents of Migron.
Another Leftist anti-Israel Organisation: Don't Attack Iran
The leadership of the leftist Physicians for Human Rights organisation sent a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Ehud Barak, calling them not to attack Iran's nuclear facilities. (Have they asked Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to stop Iran’s nuclear program and testing of ballistic rockets?)
Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, once again expressed hope that Israel would be wiped off the map. “The light of hope will shine on the Palestinian issue, and this Islamic land will certainly be returned to the Palestinian nation, and the superfluous and fake Zionist (regime) will disappear from the landscape of geography,” Khamenei said during a meeting with a number of Iranian war veterans.
A PA flag is now flying on the Temple Mount, the most holy site on earth, where stood the First and Second Temples and the Holy of Holies.
Piece after piece of Eretz Israel is becoming a symbol of Arab nationalistic achievements. Several months ago, the Palestinian Rehabilitation Committee raised the UNESCO flag next to the Palestinian flag in front of Hevron’s Tomb of the Patriarchs.
A Palestinian flag on the Temple Mount not only makes the Jewish people psychologically weaker, it looks as though Islam won the race in climbing to the top of the most sacred mountain. It’s an implicit recognition of Muslim hegemony.
Jews are daily banned and discriminated against at their holiest sites by the Israeli authorities. Archeological Jewish treasures are destroyed by Muslims, and tractors are used to change Jewish history...
The Temple Mount is the major front in the effort by the (so-called) Palestinians and Arabs to erase the Jewish historical identity with the Land of Israel. Since 1929, the Temple Mount has been a symbol of the struggle against Zionism.
If the Temple Mount becomes a Palestinian-Islamic site, Jews are by definition newcomers to Jerusalem. They arrived there with the “Zionist invasion” and they are not descendants of the Bible’s Jews.
Last June, a Wakf official told a Jewish student from the UK who was visiting the Temple Mount to remove his kippa, saying that he was not allowed to wear it because he was “in a holy place”.
The Jerusalem Wakf, the city’s Moslem properties trust, has experienced a “renaissance” under Israeli rule. During Jordanian rule between 1948 and 1967, the Wakf became less important. Since the Gulf war, the influence of Muslim extremists on the Wakf has also increased.
The goal is to de-Judaize the Temple Mount. A Palestinian flag over the mountain means that there is no right of Jews to worship at Judaism’s holiest site…
