    This is definitely a Pogrom and these people are in danger.
    We’ve seen this one before... And right on Passover eve.... Classic Anti-Semitism.

    Below is the link to the article in YNET News.com in Israel:

    The Headline and Sub-headline read:
    “Donetsk leaflet: Jews must register or face deportation
    Fear replaced communal atmosphere in Donetsk’s Jewish community as armed men handed out a leaflet Passover eve calling on Jews register their religion and property with the interim pro-Russian government or face deportation and loss of citizenship.”

    Palestinian Arabs are doing their best to kill Jews every day, throwing rocks and firebombs or shooting and stabbing. The 16-year-old murderer in this case is following a family tradition, or should I say, a national one. I would go farther than Hotovely and Indor and say that Abbas and other PA officials responsible for creating these killers are themselves guilty of murder, and should be treated appropriately.

    Todays Zionists are from the entire range of Jewish groups.

    “Zionist” simply means that you want to live in your historic, indigenous homeland- Israel. I am a Zionist and I am totally Sefardic- I am an Orthodox Jew who’s family is Egyptian, Turkish and Spanish. 3/4 of Israel’s population is Sefardic.

    Most folks do not realize that over 900,000 Jews were forced to flee- thrown out with just the clothes on their back - from the Arab nations when Israel declared its rebirth in 1948. They were taken back in by the State of Israel. They make up the majority of the Israeli population.

    They can dispute all they want, but they cannot argue with the archeology- the facts in the ground, and there is plenty of it- along with the ancient writings of other nations, and the artifacts, such as the Arch of Titus, and the spoils of the siege, acknowledged by, and still kept in the Vatican.

    There were indeed borders back then- very clearly so. And, we know the ancient names. As an example, in the Torah you will find the specific areas, their size and locations of each tribe’s portion of land. One thing that makes the Torah so fascinating is that it contains what are probably the world’s first recorded real estate deeds and land titles.

    But for an interesting glance at the old maps, here is a link to an English portion of a Hebrew site that features a good look into the ancient world, the nations, their ancient names, and boundaries of that entire region: http://hashem1.net/?p=361#Magogs_Land_Borders.

    The Jewish Diaspora was wide reaching, but it was actually rather well documented. But, there no French kings among them. Some nobility of Europe may have had one of us in the woodpile, but for the most part, that is just nonsense from the Revisionists. The European royalty was too busy persecuting Jews to marry into them. And the Revisionists just want to claim Israel as their own, so they re-write history, can’t read Hebrew, and ignore the facts - like archeology.

    Rabbi Ken Spiro produced a 33 part series on Jewish history from Abraham to the present. You may want to look into it:

    The Roman renamed the Jews and Israel “Palestine” as a demeaning insult to remind the Jews of the humiliation of the Greek invasion and take over centuries earlier. ( Google the holiday of Hannukah- that is where it comes from) The Romans gave the Jews and Israel this name during the siege of Jerusalem which took place on Tisha B’Av, 70 A.D. (See the writtings of Josephus Flavius and Titus.)

    As a side note, the writtings of Josephus are translated into English and are a fascinating read.

    No, the Orthodox do not frown on the convert. The convert is actually respected because they made an actual choice to follow Torah. The convert is regarded as a Jewish Soul who is returning to the Jewish people.

    The story of Rut ( Ruth) the Moabite, wife of Boaz and great-grandmother of King David is a shinning example of a woman who converts to Judaism and how the convert is regarded among us.

    No, it is not complicated at all.

    Halachically, since the women converted, they are Jews.

    The convert’s “merit” is that they CHOSE to convert to believe in HaShem and follow Torah, rather than being born into it. Rut ( Ruth), the Moabite was a virtuous woman who converted, married Boaz and became the great-grandmother of King David. She lived to see him crowned king of Israel.

    There is no complication as long as the woman converts. Once she converts, she follows Torah and performs the Mitzvot. She is as Jewish as any other Jew. She may not be Israelite/ Hebrew. But, by marrying a Jew, her children will be of her husband’s tribe. By 3 generations, her descendants will be Hebrew lineage.

    There are no such people as “Palestinians” nor a land “Palestine”. That is a name given to the JEWISH people by the Romans when they sacked the 2nd Temple and Jerusalem. They gave it to the Jews as an insult and a way of distancing Jews from their land and nationhood- not unlike what the arabs are attempting to do today.

    The name is actually Greek. Are the arabs Greek? No, they are not. The letter “P” is not even in the Arabic language. There are no “Palestinian” archeological artifacts, coinage, government, language or culture. It is all Hebrew and Jewish.

    But, here is the truth by their own lips:

    PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein made one such statement to the Dutch newspaper, Trouw, in March 5,1977. He said:

    “The Palestinian people does not [sic.] exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism.”

    On September 13, 1993, the same day Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin signed the “Declaration of Principles” embodying those ideals for which he would later get the Nobel Prize, he explained his motives on Lebanese TV:

    “Since we cannot defeat Israel in war, we do this in stages. We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish sovereignty there, and we use it as a springboard to take more. When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel.”

    The true “genetic descendants” of the Jews are JEWS. You can try to revise all you want, but you can NEVER defeat or change such a well documented, known, and recognized history.

    Never A Dull Moment to Berosus

    Before I begin this one, let me apologize in advance if it does not format properly.

    The Khazars were NOT Karaites. Here’s another one of those little “mysteries” I can help out on.

    In the 8th century, as a result of the influx and influence of the Jews migrating throughout the region, the nation of Khazar, much of its royalty and aristrocracy converted to Judaism.

    The conversion was performed by Rabbi Yitzak HaSangari. The result was a more tolerant and harmonious society. The Jews, who were educated in many other nations, brought with them the culture, arts, and technologies of the civilization/nations they fled from.. The direct result was that the Khazars became an Asian steppe tribal society that successfully made the transition to an urbanite society.

    Eventually, the Khazars and the Balkins were conquered by Sviatoslav of Kiev. However, most of the families of the original migrating Jews remained in the region. World Wars 1 & 2, along with the rebirth of the State of Israel, led to mass Jewish immigration out of the region.

    Many people, generally Anti-Semites, try to state that these people were not of Jewish blood. But this is incorrect. Genetic testing shows that they are indeed, without question of the same Jewish people who were still living in the Middle East and other areas. So, any discussion of Ashkenazi Jews not being “original” Jews is simply moot.

    The Karaites were not part of the Khazars. Most of them remained in the Middle East. Many lived in Egypt.

    This article is complete nonsense. It does not even contain an author's name.... and little wonder. The Karaites ARE considered Jews, They are considered just a different sect of Jews by all, with the exception of the Ultra-Otrthodox Jewish ( Hariedi )sects, who tend not regard any other sect of Judaism- such as Traditional Orthodox, Flexidox, Modern Orthodox, Conservative, or Reformed, as Torah Observant Jews, either...lol. So, it is no surprise that they would reject the Karaites, as well. They do follow Torah, but the argument is that if you do not follow the Talmud, then you do not know how the laws are applied. For those who do not know what the Talmud actually is, let me remove the mystery. It is simply a written compendium of ongoing discussions, opinions, and Rabbinc rulings on the oral law by various Rabbis over several hundred years. There are actually 2 of them. The Jerusalem and the Babylonian. 3,325 years ago, Moshe Rabbeinu (Moses) brought down the Tablets which contained the 10 Commandments. The 10 Commandments is the "outline headers" or "categories" of the 613 Mitzvot ( Commandments) a Jew must perform. But.... he also brought down the Oral Law- the explanations of how they were to be applied, and thus, he taught the people, well before he transcribed the Torah, and made a scroll for each tribe. The Oral law is the explanation/details and the "How-to's." Karaites reccognize the Tanakh- the 24 seferim ( Books) of the Torah as the authority in Halakha ( Jewish Law). They maintain that all of the divine commandments handed down to Moshe by HaShem were recorded in the written Torah, without the need of additional Oral Law or explanation. As a result,they do not accept as binding, the written collections of the oral tradition in the Mishnah or Talmud. They do not light the Shabbas Candles, nor wear Tefillin, or place Mezzuzot on their doorposts. This article also falsely accused Maimonides ( The Rambam), as well. He did not hold the authority to ban anyone from public prayer. No Rabbi does. "Maimonides, wrote that people who deny the divine authority of the Oral Torah are considered among the heretics. However, at the same time Maimonides holds (Hilkhot Mamrim 3:3) that most of the Karaites and others who claim to deny the "oral teachings" are not to be held accountable for their errors in the law because they are led into error by their parents and are similar to a tinoq shenishbah (a captive baby), or to one who was forced. Rabbinic scholars have traditionally held that, because the Karaites do not observe the rabbinic law on divorce, there is a strong presumption that they are mamzerim (adulterine bastards), so that marriage with them is forbidden even if they return to Rabbinic Judaism. Some recent Ashekenazi Ḥaredi scholars have held that Karaites should be regarded as Gentiles in all respects, though this is not universally accepted. They hasten to add that this opinion is not intended to insult the Karaites, but only to give individual Karaites the option of integrating into mainstream Judaism by way of conversion. In contrast, in 1971 Rav ‘Ovadia Yosef, who was then the Rishon LeṢiyyon/Chief Rabbi of the Sefaradim and ‘Edot HaMizraḥ of Israel, proclaimed that Karaites are Jews "LeKhol Davar" (literally, for all purposes) and that it is permissible for Rabbanite Jews to marry with them." The accusation that they have lesser rights is absolute nonsense. And the author of the article is a liar. Little wonder he hides his name. Cronos, you really should check the validity of your sources before posting articles of this nature. It is very misleading. In fact, it is total and complete crap.

    Just for the record, Yityish Aynaw is not a Christian Ethiopian. She is a Jewish Ethiopian, a Falasha, and a direct descendant of King Soloman and The Queen of Sheba by their son Menelik 1.

    The Falasha call themselves Beta Israel—the house of Israel—and used the Torah to guide their prayers and memories of the heights of Jerusalem as they lived in their thatched huts in Ethiopia. They follow Jewish traditions including circumcision, observing the Sabbath, attending synagogue, and following dietary and purity laws.

    The miracle of Israel’s Operation Solomon is has brought back this ancient Jewish community to rejoin the rest of the Jewish people in Israel. Another tribal group returns. :)

    No, the Pharoah didn’t boff her. He couldn’t....he was ill. But to make a long explanation short......

    Yes, as a rule back then, had the Pharaoh known that Sarah was his wife, he would have killed Abraham. However, he would not have killed her brother.

    No, he did not give her away. The Egyptian princes took her away from Abraham, but Abraham and Sarah knew that Pharoah was going to get a nasty sickness.

    G-D had told him that the Pharoah was stricken with the plague of Ra’athan, making intercourse painful and harmful to him. Gen. Rabbah (41:2).

    So it bought them time....

    This is not by the Navi, Isaiah.

    This is from the Torah. It is Parshah Lech Lecha, Bereshit 12: 3( Genesis).
    Here is an authentic, correct, Rabbinic translation from the original Hebrew of the Torah:

    1. And the Lord said to Abram, “Go forth from your land and from your birthplace and from your father’s house, to the land that I will show you.

    2. And I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you, and I will aggrandize your name, and [you shall] be a blessing.

    3. And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse, and all the families of the earth shall be blessed in you.”

    4. And Abram went, as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him, and Abram was seventy five years old when he left Haran.

    5. And Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had acquired, and the souls they had acquired in Haran, and they went to go to the land of Canaan, and they came to the land of Canaan.

    6. And Abram passed through the land, until the place of Shechem, until the plain of Moreh, and the Canaanites were then in the land.

    7. And the Lord appeared to Abram, and He said, “To your seed I will give this land,” and there he built an altar to the Lord, Who had appeared to him.

    8. And he moved from there to the mountain, east of Beth el, and he pitched his tent; Beth el was to the west and Ai was to the east, and there he built an altar to the Lord, and he called in the name of the Lord.

    9. And Abram traveled, continually traveling southward.

    10. And there was a famine in the land, and Abram descended to Egypt to sojourn there because the famine was severe in the land.

    11. Now it came to pass when he drew near to come to Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, “Behold now I know that you are a woman of fair appearance.

    12. And it will come to pass when the Egyptians see you, that they will say, ‘This is his wife,’ and they will slay me and let you live.

    13. Please say [that] you are my sister, in order that it go well with me because of you, and that my soul may live because of you.”

    14. And it came to pass when Abram came to Egypt, that the Egyptians saw the woman, that she was very pretty.

    15. And Pharaoh’s princes saw her, and they praised her to Pharaoh, and the woman was taken to the house of Pharaoh.

    16. And he benefited Abram for her sake, and he had flocks and cattle and he donkeys and men servants and maid servants, and she donkeys and camels.

    17. And the Lord plagued Pharaoh [with] great plagues as well as his household, on account of Sarai, Abram’s wife.

    18. And Pharaoh summoned Abram, and he said, “What is this that you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife?

    19. Why did you say, ‘She is my sister,’ so that I took her to myself for a wife? And now, here is your wife; take [her] and go.”

    20. And Pharaoh commanded men on his behalf, and they escorted him and his wife and all that was his.

    Absolutely correct.

    The Jewish people have an extremely difficult time trusting or believing Christians. History has provided extremely good reason for this. No, we do not trust the Muslims, either. Far from it.

    Up until recent history, living under the Muslims was very, very bad, but living under the Christians was far, far worse. ( Crusades, Inquisitions, Pograms, the Holocaust.....)

    Since the Holocaust, some Christians have learned to become more tolerant, and have stopped trying to convert us, revise our history and religion, or kill us because we refuse to convert.

    Sadly, the majority still have a ways to go. Hopefully, one day, that will be achieved. Then, perhaps, trust can grow.

    It is troubling that the Democratic National Convention has decided to promote and lend its name and national political platform to the organizers of the “Jummah at the DNC”. The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj as advertised are no moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.

    A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims. Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement.

    Well.... there it is folks.....

    What he is saying is that the Yismaelim know that it exists. The Koran refers to the Jews as the “People of The Book”.

    The Yismaelim know the Jews are “The people of The Book”. It is in their Koran, as is that Jerusalem and Israel belong to the Jewish people.
    But the Yismaelim, it was writen on the Torah, are wild and violent as a wild ass. His hand will be against his brother, trying to take what belongs to his brother while starting wars and turmoil in the world...... And there he is, doing just that.

    If the EU belived in the Bible, they would also leave Israel and the Jews alone. For oil ( the Golden Calf), they again seek to destroy Israel and support the Muslims in their attempt to take Israel, and HaShem sets the Muslims to take over Europe, and further punishes them with a collapsing economy.

    In Hebrew, the term is called Midda Kinnegid Midda. It means “Measure
    for Measure”. It is how HaShem deals with the world.

    “I will Bless those that Bless you, and I will Curse those that Curse you.”

    Gershon Mesika, Shomron Regional Council Head The writer is the head of the Samaria (Shomron) Regional Council.

    Editor's Note: The speech was delivered in Hebrew and translated simultanously to the languages of the listeners. English translation by A7 writer Gil Ronen.

    Heads of the European Parliament's Committee on Foreign Affairs, Members of Parliament from European countries, Distinguished guests,

    The prophets of Israel predicted that before the Messiah comes there will be a time of confusion, when good is turned into evil and evil is turned into good. We see this clearly today.

    The Shomron, or Samaria, which I am honored to represent in this distinguished place, the European Parliament, is a region that is in the center of international attention, since it is a sizable part of the territory that is in dispute between the Jewish nation and its neighbors in the Middle East.

    But this area, which for many in the world is nothing but “disputed land,” is a homeland for us, the place that characterizes and determines our national and religious identity, the scene of the great events described in the Book of Books, the Bible.

    The Middle Eastern confrontation and the Islamic terror campaign against the citizens of Israel are attempts by reactionary forces to oppose the historic process of the Return to Zion: our return to our historic homeland after nearly 2,000 years, during which we were scattered all over the world – weak, humiliated, trampled, rejected, but strong in our spirit and faith. During all those years, we did not cease for a moment to remain faithful to our homeland and to maintain a living, continuous, day-to-day connection with it. This bond was expressed in prayers and in the most important religious ceremonies, thanks to which it was only natural for us to realize the dream when opportunity came.

    The connection also manifested itself in the continuous existence of Jewish settlement on the Land throughout the long years of exile. Jews always lived in the Land of Israel, throughout the years of Roman, Persian, Greek, Christian and Muslim occupation.

    And indeed, even after 2,000 years of exile, the nations of the world recognized the Jewish people's right to its homeland. In the course of the First World War and immediately after it, the victorious powers made a series of decisions that culminated in the historic decision in 1922 by the League of Nations, to establish a national home for the Jewish people in the Land of Israel.

    It is interesting and important to look at the words used in the mandate that was given to Britain to implement this project.

    "Whereas recognition has thereby been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine, and to the grounds for reconstituting their National Home in that country…"

    The justification that the League of Nations gave as the grounds for establishing the Jewish national home in the Land of Israel was the historical connection between the nation and the Land. What caused this? It was the power of the Bible and the Jewish insistence on maintaining the connection to the Land of Israel.

    In 1945, with the establishment of the United Nations after World War II, the organization's founding charter included the recognition of the Jewish people's legal rights to the Land of Israel as eternal ones that cannot be revoked without the consent of the Jewish people.

    Article 80, known as the "Land of Israel article," determines that "nothing in the Charter shall be construed . . . to alter in any manner the rights whatsoever of any states or peoples or the terms of existing international instruments." In other words, the continued legal rights of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel are anchored in the binding UN Charter. These include the rights of the Jewish people to Judea and Samaria, which the UN has no right to take away from it.

    We hear the word "occupation" repeatedly. From whom, exactly, did the state of Israel take the land in order to occupy it?

    After the establishment of the state of Israel, the Kingdom of Jordan conquered the area of Judea and Samaria. Except Britain and Pakistan, no one in the world recognized Jordanian ownership of these territories. This was an illegal occupation of the area that the occupying power called "the West Bank of the Jordan."

    This occupied territory served for years as a base for launching terror attacks, and for repeated firing on and shelling of Jewish population centers on the coastal plain, which is completely controlled by the Samaria mountains.

    In 1967, the surrounding countries again tried to annihilate us. To realize what danger we were facing, one needs only to look through the newspapers from that time to see the threats of murder and destruction, the sickening cries –

    "We will throw the Jews into the sea," "The men are for the sea and the women are for us" – and the Nazi caricatures, this time with Arabic captions.

    But this time we won a decisive victory and took back our heartland.

    Before Israel regained them, Judea and Samaria were under illegal Jordanian occupation. That was preceded by the British Mandate, which by definition was intended for transferring the Land to the Jews. The British were preceded by the Turks who gave up the land, along with the rest of their empire, in the 1923 Lausanne Accord.

    They, in turn, were preceded by the Mamelukes, the Crusaders, the early Muslims, the Persians, the Byzantine Empire and the Romans.

    Where are all these nations? They are in the museum. Who preceded them? The Jews. And now the Land is back in the hands of its original owners.

    Throughout all the years of exile, no conqueror established a political capital in the Land of Israel. This land was never considered the homeland of any nation except the Jews, and Jerusalem is the most holy and central place for the Jewish people.

    Distinguished guests,

    The three large religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam, believe in the Bible. One of its central themes is the promise of the Land of Israel to the Jewish people and their commandment to settle in it. No other nation in the world has a deed of ownership over its land as powerful as the one the Jews possess for their land – the Land of Israel.

    The Nation of Israel implements, in the very establishment of the state of Israel, and especially in the acts of settlement and construction throughout Israel, the Divine promise and commandment, and the leaders of the world must stand beside the Nation of Israel and assist it in this.

    Now that we have dealt with the central matter, our natural right to our homeland, let us devote a few words to security.

    All of the western Land of Israel, including Judea and Samaria or the Shomron, is a tiny strip of land. A glance at the map of the Middle East shows an Arab Muslim ocean that starts next to the Atlantic Ocean in the west and ends on the border with India. Inside this territory, Israel is so small that on maps, its name is usually written in the Mediterranean Sea.

    Israel is a small David facing a large and menacing Goliath who threatens it with destruction every single day, and means it, and prepares for it.

    Israeli control of the mountains prevents this. Handing over this territory to the enemy means suicide.

    The Shomron is the cradle of the birth of the Jewish People. It is a vital strategic component for the existence of the state of Israel, which measures 70 kilometers in width from the sea to the Jordan River, of which 55 kilometers are in Shomron.

    Some of the distinguished Members of Parliament here in this hall have visited us and can attest to the truth of what I am saying. Anyone who arrives in the Shomron can see with his own eyes the acute importance of the Shomron for the state of Israel, both as a cradle of the Israeli nation's culture and roots, and as a protective buffer for the state of Israel.

    The state of Israel, without the Shomron, is completely indefensible. Without Judea and Samaria, Israel is left with a narrow strip just 15 kilometers wide, in which most of the centers of population, commerce, finance and transportation are concentrated in the Tel Aviv area and controlled from above by the Shomron Mountains.

    Israel has withdrawn from Gaza, and southern Israel is now under ceaseless bombardment. Handing over Judea and Samaria will create a similar and even worse situation in central Israel.

    Those in Europe pressing for the establishment of a Palestinian state are actually advocating cutting out the heart of the Land, and creating an existential danger to the state of Israel.

    If we go, terror will replace us.

    Beside us in the Land of Israel live Arabs. In the Middle East, it has been proven that an Arab has no problem living under Jewish rule, but an opposite situation in which an Israeli populace will live in peace under Arab rule is impossible, of course. The reasons are clear to all thinking people.

    This is also the sad fate of Christians, who are gradually disappearing all over the Middle East because of pressure from radical Muslims, while their numbers grow under Israeli rule.

    The life of the Arab population in Judea and Samaria has also improved drastically under Israeli rule. Unlike them, the Arabs of Gaza who have gone back to living under Arab rule have become poor and unhappy.

    Leading public figures from the Arab sector in Israel are seated here with us. They seek coexistence and help to create a better life for Jews and Arabs, side by side under Israeli control, in peace and security.

    Unfortunately, the Oslo Accords imported into Israel thousands of terrorists and criminals from Tunisia and the Arab countries. This created a rotten and corrupt regime that violently steals the donations and aid money intended for the Arab population in Judea and Samaria, and that does all that it can to sabotage coexistence, and the ability of the two nations to live in peace and fraternity.

    But like any country, Israel, too, has small extremist margins, tiny ultra-leftist organizations that have no real weight within Israel's population. These organizations act to undermine our state's legitimacy and attempt with all their might to incite the world against us with false accusations.

    Unfortunately, these people receive large sums of money in support from European nations and from various institutions within the European Union.

    In these times, as we all face a common terrorist enemy and attempts by extremist Muslims to achieve domination, it is strange that European governments see fit to pour funds into such radical hate organizations, which failed to gain influence democratically because of their small size and general insignificance.

    Under the cover of nice words like "peace" and "human rights," foreign countries fund numerous harmful and shameless groups that do everything to shrink Israel's borders, rob it of its right to self defense, undermine its culture and thus strengthen the Islamic terror organizations.

    It is odd that at a time in which some European countries are in a state of near collapse, and their stronger sisters have to dip deep into their pockets to save them, certain elements in Europe continue to spend billions of euro on this anti-Israel activity. There is no logical explanation for this behavior.

    In my opinion, this is the immediate and practical conclusion we all need to reach in this honorable conference: take robust action to cut off the flow of funds to subversive groups within Israel, as well as within the Palestinian Authority. If these groups succeed in assisting our common enemies, Europe and the free world will be the next victims. Our role is to hold on to our very existence. Israel is a forward outpost, both culturally and physically, of the free world, in the heart of an extremist Islamic ocean that is getting more and more radical and is threatening to flood Europe. The European interest is to strengthen this outpost as much as possible.

    We have come back to our Land and we have no intention of leaving it.

    Almost 700,000 Jews now live in the area liberated from Jordanian occupation in 1967. This is a number that cannot be reversed, and it is constantly growing, despite the political and diplomatic pressure.

    Without Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria there can be no state of Israel. It will be deprived of its roots and of the most basic security.

    The Nazi propaganda minister, Josef Goebbels, used to say in his ugly and bestial manner, that if the Jews had a state they would sell it for money.

    I, Gershon Mesika, son of Yosef and Gita, whose two older brothers were murdered by the damned Nazis in the Jado Concentration Camp in Libya, stand before you and hereby declare, for the world to hear, that the Jewish people now possess our own state, and not only are we not selling it – we are redeeming it again and again with our blood, and paying for the right to maintain it, safeguard it and settle in it.

    The countries of Europe must understand that without the state of Israel, there is no one to stop the Muslim flood from washing over Europe, and without Judea and Samaria, the state of Israel cannot exist. If the European Union supports the state of Israel and strengthens Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria, it will be bringing peace and quiet upon itself.

    I will conclude with the immortal words of King David in the Book of Psalms: "May G-d give courage to His nation; may G-d bless His nation with peace." If we stand up for our rights with ferocity and strength, we will reach peace, too, by the grace of G-d. Thank you very much.

    “Knesset marks Jerusalem Day

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tells Knesset plenum ‘today we take an oath for a built up Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital’”

    The Knesset plenum on Monday convened a special session to mark Jerusalem Day, which was celebrated on Sunday.

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Opposition Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich (Labor) and Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin addressed the plenum during the event.

    “We need to stop for one day every year and realize that we are witnessing and experiencing the fulfillment of a prophecy, the yearning for Zion, the return to Zion and the revival of Zion” Netanyahu told the Knesset plenum.

    The prime minister came to the defense of visionary of the state Theodor Herzl, saying “he foresaw the problem and the solution, but he didn’t give up on Zion.

    “He raised his right hand and said – If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither. Today we are raising our hand with the same oath. We are taking an oath for a built up Jerusalem, the eternal capital of Israel,” he said.

    At the opening of the special session, Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said “Jerusalem Day is not a religious holiday, nor does it belong to rightists. Any attempt to attribute Jerusalem Day (to a particular group) removes it further from the heart of our shared Jewish identity.

    “Disputing over Jerusalem is unbearable, yet being indifferent to its fate is a failure of the Zionist enterprise and Jewish education,” he noted.

    On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that partitioning Jerusalem could result in a religious war.

    Speaking at a state ceremony marking Jerusalem Day in the capital’s Ammunition Hill, Netanyahu said: “If we place this quadrate of the Temple Mount in the hands of others, I doubt we will be able to avoid a religious war.

    “I know what history has taught us: only under Israeli sovereignty were peace and quiet among the faiths maintained.”

    Netanyahu further added, “Israel without Jerusalem is like a body with a weak heart. Never again will our heart be divided.

    “A nation willing to sacrifice its heart would convince its enemies it has no desire to fight for anything. Jewish history has changed forever: the divided city has been united and will stay that way.

    “Our generation has a great privilege of witnessing the realization of the words of the prophets. It is up to our generation to secure this change for generations to come.”

    No, I do not believe he will. He may be forced to give away other area, but I do not believe he will divide Jerusalem. When he unified the government, he insulated himself against a lot of the tactics and pressures of outside forces and governments, as well as by those on the inside. It a was a very
    shrewd, not so sudden as it appeared move, and Kadima, the leftists, were reduced to only 3 seats- meaning no power, and Livni is gone. Kadima are the folks that want to divide Jerusalem.

    Bibi is a very good chess player. What most people do not know about him, other than his father was a noted professor of Jewish history and scholar, is that Bibi is Kohanim- he comes from a long line of Torah scholars- rabbis who were among the gedolim ( great ones), and his responsibility is deeply ingrained in him. He knows exactly what the division of Jerusalem would mean. I do not believe for a moment that he will do it.

    “But, since you bring up Harvard and being assaulted, thank you for pointing out that a liberal institution such as Harvard is a place where Jews are assaulted, yet, Jews flock to Harvard. Go figure.”

    It is because our traditions teach us to value education, and we have the right to attend any university we choose and can afford to attend.

    And if you read,you will note that it is happening on many campuses,in many Universities.

    The problem is that a Jew can be attacked attending, simply because they are Jewish, and that people will not take a stand against it, knowing that it is wrong, and will actually imply a Jew should not attend. Go figure.

    “son...the raggers hate our guts for backing Israel for half a century...did your dumbass ever count how many of us they have killed for supporting Israel by those Moon Rock maniacs”

    My comment was in reference to the connotation of “US boots on the ground fighting”.... But in regard to your own point:

    You are discounting the Muslim’s rage over US non-muslim military boots that were stationed on Muslim lands, killing Muslims during the Gulf War, as well as what is currently happening in Afghanistan, and throughout that region. They have never forgotten the “Crusaders.” And when it comes down to it, in tribal conflicts, Muslims will gleefully kill each other, but they join together in Jihad against the West. Get a copy of the Koran-and read it. It is about converting the world to Islam and wiping out the “infidels”.

    Bin Laden, as you may recall, expressed his outrage of the “Crusaders” entering Muslim lands. You cannot discount the fact that Christians are also vehemently hated by the Muslims. Read the Haddiths. That is what the world Jihad is all about. It is their hatred of Western values and ways....That is the “Big Satan” to them, Israel is the “Little Satan” because we all share the same values, sonny. Or, is it so much easier for your lazy mind to use that good old stand by of “the Jews/Israel”?

    And, I will say this again - Jews are 2% of the population. Most are NOT socialists...but ARE Democrats....So tell us, since you are so knowledgeable, what group made up the majority of US voters who voted Obama in???

    Perhaps you don’t want the US to hit Iran? Guess what sonny, neither do I....why? Because everything this nation got itself involved in since Viet Nam, with the exception of Reagan, has turned to sh*t.... And I think we all know that this “president” and his admin are not exactly up to the job.

    It is our pressuring, blackmailing, meddling, stalling and making “sanctions” that allowed Iran more time that forced Israel into this position. If we kept our noses out of it, she could have handled it far easier than now.

    The fact is, before US,EU,and UN interference, Israel won her wars, against all odds, astounding the world at what such a tiny nation can do. They did not have US troops. They did not need them. It’s because she has G-D on her side, sonny.

    The fact is that most Jews are NOT socialists. Jews, like all other populations run the political gamut. To call them socialists is just another way anti- semites stir up hatred. Most Jews, are, however long time Democrats. that has been a sad failing of the Repubican party for many years. The GOP did not want Jews in their ranks.

    James “ F****the Jews Baker” did not help matters with his hate based attitudes. They were very offensive. Most did vote for Obama, believing like a majority of the rest of America, that he was a good man. But as Jews make up only 2% of the US population, it took many non- Jews to put him in office.

    It is historical fact that Non- Jews have NEVER spilled their blood fighting for Jews or Israel. Infact, the US or allies would not even bomb the train tracks to the concentration camps when asked, even though the US planes flew over them.

    It is also historical fact that non- Jews have repeatedly spilled the blood of Jews throughout the many centuries via Crusades, pograms, Inquisitions, and the Holocaust.

    Israel, as any ally of the US, would hope the US would help her. But it is clear, since we have an anti-semetic president, that no such help will be coming. The prophecies clearly state that US will answer to G-D for that one. Obediah 1, Joel 3 & 4, Ezekiel 36, 37 & 38 address it amply.
