British lecturer: Jerusalem doesn’t belong to Jews
Jerusalem Post ^ | 04/01/2012 02:34 | Jonny Paul

Posted on 04/01/2012 10:35:19 AM PDT by Olog-hai

A British university lecturer told Global March to Jerusalem protesters on Friday evening that Jerusalem “does not belong to Jewish Israelis or to Jews” and that Israel is “finished.”

University of Exeter lecturer Ghada Karmi, speaking to protesters converged near the Israeli Embassy in London, went on to say that she “respects all religions” but that one should not be allowed to take over the city.

Karmi also said that Israel does not deserve to continue as a state. …

Riiiiiight. If she doesn't believe that Jerusalem belongs to the Muslims, then she is an apostate.

Once upon a time, a British university lecturer might carry a name like Reginald Blythe-Smithington. Today, the loudest British academics seem to carry names like Ghada Karmi, and all they care about is Islam.

Doesn’t sound like she respects all religions to me.

Is she planning on blocking any bulldozers?

The new agenda is for Jerusalem to be made a UN protectorate so that all religions can use it. Of course, it already is that way. If the UN takes over, then the Muslims will have effective control over Jerusalem because the UN is worthless. All other religious shrines, other than Islamic ones, will be destroyed and the UN will just stand by and watch.

And Mecca does not belong to Islam.

Well by all means,, go take it from them then. Not tomorrow,,, do it today! You see, there is not a square inch of inhabited earth that was not taken from someone else who lived there before.

So there’s the solution, kick their ass,, and you can have all the Jerusalem you ever wanted!

PS,,, even if you ‘win’, stock up on some spf 25,000 sunscreen, because wherever you launched the attack from is about to be hit by 200 nukes.

They’ve been wanting to do that for ages. Anything to get it out of the hands of those “pesky Jews” . . . and completely destabilize the region in the process.

Sure, “respects all religions” except for the sacred sites of certain ones that is . . . and of course, Israel cannot continue to exist as a state (even though precedent like that means that no other nation-state can be allowed to exist either) . . .

One can only hope...

Just for historical perspective.

Judaism Created around 2000 B.C.
Christianity arose around 50 A.D.
Koranimals popped up as an excuse to rob caravans first around 620 Anno Domini.

To what culture does Jerusalem belong again?

Some sandmaggots cleverly argue that Judaism was simply a precursor to islam. Unfortunately Judaism lasted almost three millenia before anyone knew (or cared) that islam existed.

WILLFUL BLINDNESS AND WILLFUL IGNORANT IS WORST OF IGNORANCE!

Why exactly do touchy-feely Soccer Moms seem to brandish this empty-headed bumper sticker, when Muslim women are regularly beheaded, abandoned, beaten, kept ignorant and generally treated worse than livestock under their heathen belief system? And when the Crescent Moon on the sticker views all the other symbols represented as being corruptions that need to be stamped out?

There is no bigger bunch of crybabys than the Arabs. You attack a tiny country 40 miles across, you get your sand-ass kicked into near annihilation, you lose a bunch of geography, you get it back in "exchange for peace" in which you give no peace, you have a bazillion dollars worth of oil, and you whine about how tough it is for a faux nation of "Palestinians" who get billions of dollars they never see because their corrupt leaders, like every other nation but Israel, keeps the cash and blames the Americans! Hey, if you gave a crap about your "Arab brothers" you would take care of them yourselves with all the oil money. One day, your dinnerjacket madman is going to push the big button and the simple and quick response is going to be to get a number of your main cities turned to green glass in a sadly impressive counter attack. Granted, the fall out is going to poison YOU first, but we are all going to take the damage. And when it is over, there will still be one complaining, whining Arab standing alone on the pile of his civilization saying, "You know who did this? The JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSE!"

“A British university lecturer told Global March to Jerusalem protesters on Friday evening that Jerusalem “does not belong to Jewish Israelis or to Jews” and that Israel is “finished.”

Not according to G_d’s Word. Even the Muslim's Koran says that Israel belongs to the Jews. Funny thing, when the Muslim's holy book gets in the way of their politics and their Jihad to conquer the world for Islam, the followers of Islam ignore the Koran and seek to conquer Israel.

Strange thing about Christians and Zionism. All true Christians are Zionist, since they believe in a Jewish Messiah ruling from Jerusalem (Zion), and are looking toward His return. Of course those who do not believe that Yeshua will return, deny G_d's Word, place themselves in the place of Jews and Israel, and verbally and physically attack Israel. They allign themselves the the one(Satin), who seeks to destroy the Jewish people and destroy G_d's promises in His Word.

Even Paul warned that Christians should not get too full of themselves, and think that they were replacing G_d’s chosen people. He warns that we are like grafted in branches, not the root, and can easily be replaced. I believe you are seeing this in the large liberal "churches" that deny G_d's word and steal G_d's promises to the Jewish people and Israel form themselves. They are dying on the vine.

God's Word will be fulfilled and David (Yeshua) will rule from Zion. All nations will be gathered for a sign when they attack Jerusalem. Some of those who survive will serve the G_d of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob(see the last chapter of Isaiah.

Note: A copper scroll containing the complete book of Isaiah is part of the Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered by a Muslim boy. This scroll is proof enough that G_d's Word has not been re-written or perverted as the Islamic and Morman religions claim.

It seems that about the time that Great Britain turned toward the Arabs and started reniging and not enforcing the Palistinian Mandate, they started falling apart,turned to socialism, and ceased to be a great nation.

Same thing will happen to the US, if we keep following our current policy toward Israel.

Even the Muslims’ Koran says that Israel belongs to the Jews
If you’re referring to Surah 5:20-21, that can be interpreted ambiguously. Your average Imam can twist that around to say that the Jews are among those that have “turned their backs” on Allah and therefore have become the “losers”.

Correction and addition:
Strange thing about Christians and Zionism. All true Christians are Zionist, since they believe in a Jewish Messiah ruling from Jerusalem (Zion), and are looking toward His return. Of course those who do not believe that Yeshua will return, deny G_d’s Word, place themselves in the place of Jews and Israel, and verbally and physically attack Israel. They align themselves with the one(Satin), who seeks to destroy the Jewish people and destroy G_d’s promises in His Word.

In Revelations it says that once Satin is denied the conquest of the Jews, he will then turn his wrath upon Christians. Iran and its followers view Israel as the little satin and the US as the big satin. They are currently openly (by proxy) Israel and through the supply of weapon the US. Satin knowing his time is short will attack the Jews and Christians on all fronts.

Islam demands destruction of any religious sites, practices, and religious items that are not related to muhammed whatsisname.

As a Christian, we have trusted the Jewish folks to preserve and cherish the religious sites and items that are dear to both Christianity and Judism, and they have done an outstanding job as far as I can tell.

I see no reason to change the current arrangement, for to do so would mean certain destruction of all the relics and sites we Christians hold dear.

Ghada Karmi was born in 1939 to a Palestinian father and Syrian mother in Jerusalem. Jerusalem was then part of the Mandate of Palestine administered by Great Britain. The Mandate came about at the end of World War 1 with the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire. Karmi is a Muslim and wants Israel and the Jews eliminated (and exterminated). She's not a nice person.

Moslems were a world power too until they got the guts kicked out of them by the Crusader knights-—Before Crusades Islam expanded, After Crusades Islam fell back. Only oil money keeps them afloat today—take that away and they are just warring tribes in the desert. England made some bad choices—but they are not finished yet.

Moslems were a world power too until they got the guts kicked out of them by the Crusader knights-—Before Crusades Islam expanded, After Crusades Islam fell back.

Not quite. The Crusades, while a counter attack against the Islamic conquests immediately after the death of Muhammad, were largely ineffectual. Not only did Islam survive, it continued conquering, eventually taking Constantinople, and the entire Byzantine Empire out, invading the Balkans, and even going so far as to lay siege to Vienna. During this same period, Spain was being contested as well.

The final removal of the Islamic invaders occurred in early 1492, the same year Columbus sailed from a newly liberated Spain. Isabella hocked her jewelry for the mission for a reason, the Spanish royal treasury was almost bare, the financial costs of almost eight hundred years of war.

Islam wasn't truly broken as a major military threat until Jan Sobieski and Polish forces relieved the siege of Vienna, and the Ottoman Turks' navy was roundly defeated at Lepanto.

All these occurred well after the last Crusade was a memory...

St. Jerome put Abraham about 2000 BC but that may be a little early. King David captured Jerusalem about 1000 BC.

If anyone can prove descent from the Jebusites, they could put in a claim.

A lot of countries have controlled Jerusalem over the centuries. Maybe they need to line up in chronological order. Babylonians, Persians, Ptolemies, Seleucids, Hasmoneans, Idumaeans, Romans, Byzantines, Sassanids, Arabs, Crusaders, Turks, etc. Muslims would be pretty far down the line.
