Erdogan risks diplomatic spat with Israel over Jerusalem

Istanbul (AFP) – By repeatedly hitting out at the US move to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan may be catering to his voter base, but he risks sabotaging Turkey’s already fragile relations with the Jewish state.

While President Donald Trump’s decision last week was met with near-universal condemnation, particularly from the Muslim world, Erdogan has emerged as its most outspoken critic.

Following Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to move the embassy there, Erdogan has levelled a string of accusations against Israel and the US, in his usual strident style.

Among other things he said Israel was a “terrorist state” that kills Palestinian children, adding that the US had “become a partner to this bloodshed”.

Such sentiments echo those held by many among Erdogan’s traditional voter base of Sunni Muslims in Turkey. His statements have also galvanised his popularity among some Muslims in the Arab world.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to Erdogan, saying he was “not used to receiving lectures about morality from a leader who bombs Kurdish villagers in his native Turkey, who jails journalists, who helps Iran go around international sanctions, and who helps terrorists, including in Gaza”.

Erdogan, who considers himself a fervent supporter of the Palestinians, will hold a summit of leaders of Muslim countries on Wednesday, which he claimed will mark a “turning point” in the response to Washington’s decision.

Traditional heavyweights of the Middle East like Saudi Arabia and Egypt have condemned the move, but without announcing any concrete measures of their own.

– ‘Serious risk’ –

Erdogan, who comes from a conservative Islamist background, frequently criticises Israel and does not conceal his support for the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, listed as a terrorist organisation by the US, Israel and several countries around the world.

His statements have been “consistent with the prevailing feelings among his own followers inside Turkey”, said Marc Pierini, visiting scholar at Carnegie Europe and former EU ambassador to Turkey.

But Erdogan’s escalation comes as Turkey and Israel are working to normalise ties since last year after a near-break in relations triggered by Israel’s storming of a Gaza-bound ship in 2010 which left 10 Turkish activists dead.

“Given the Israeli reaction to these statements, there is indeed a serious risk for Turkey-Israel normalisation. I think this is a risk that both sides are ready to take,” Pierini said.

According to Aaron Stein, resident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Rafik Hariri Centre, Erdogan is already thinking about elections scheduled for November 2019 when he is expected to run for a new term as president with boosted powers under an executive presidency approved in an April referendum.

By taking a firm stand against the Jerusalem move, it is “part of his broader effort to paint himself as the protector of oppressed Muslims around the world,” Stein added.

“The two sides don’t like each other, but are not standing in the way of normal economic relations. I think this is likely to continue, given Erdogan’s political calculations and Netanyahu’s own legal and political problems,” he added.

– ‘Domestic considerations prevail’ –

Sinan Ulgen, chairman of the Istanbul-based Centre for Economics and Foreign Policy and visiting scholar at Carnegie Europe, believes that Erdogan’s rhetoric on Jerusalem more broadly reflects a shift in Turkey’s foreign policy approach since the arrival of the Islamic-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP) in 2002.

“Traditionally, Turkey was able, in its diplomatic practice, to operate more in isolation from domestic political considerations,” Ulgen said.

“This has changed under AKP rule so that Turkey finds itself at almost another extreme where most foreign policy decisions are driven by domestic calculations.”

Ulgen said that it was from this perspective that Turkey’s efforts to lead the campaign against the US move should be read.

Erdogan “believes that there is public support at home to justify this more aggressive rhetoric against Israel”, even if it risks provoking a new diplomatic crisis, Ulgen said.

“One more time, domestic considerations tend to prevail over more cautious diplomatic practice.”

Palestinian Advocates Call for Israel’s Destruction

Angered by President Trump’s declaration that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, Palestinian advocates took to the streets throughout the country during the weekend to express their anger and frustration.

But the message often was telling. Few echoed media analysts’ concerns that the move might hurt future peace efforts. Instead, there were taunts of what Mohamed’s army has waiting for Jews and calls for new violence.

“We don’t want 2 states! We want 48!” was among the chants Friday night at a Times Square rally. The “48” refers to Israel’s 1948 independence, and the message calls for a return to a world before there was a Jewish state.

Other chants at the rally, sponsored by a group of organizations including American Muslims for Palestine, Students for Justice in Palestine and Al-Awda/the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, similarly called for Israel’s elimination or for a massacre of Jews:

“From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!”

“Khaybar O Jews, Muhammad’s army will return.”

A Palestine “from the river to the sea” erases Israel from the map. “Khaybar” is a taunt invoking a seventh century massacre of Jews by Mohammed’s army. It is considered a “battle cry” before attacks on Jews or Israelis.

Palestinians are quick to accuse Israel of genocide the systematic destruction of a culture and its people a sign at Friday’s rally said, “Israel= racism + genocide.”

Yet that’s exactly what they pray would happen to Israel. We reported Friday on a Texas-imam’s prayer that “Allah destroy the Zionists and their allies.” The prayer generated an “Amen, amen” comment from Said Abbasy, a New York-based supporter of the “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood.

Abbasy appeared pleased by the attention, confirming the sentiment in Arabic on Facebook and justifying it because “the world Zionists are my enemies, because you are all killers and enemies of humanity.”

Imagine what would happen if a mainstream pro-Israel advocate voiced a reciprocal sentiment. Imagine a pro-Israel rally featuring similar rhetoric taunting Palestinians over a massacre or advocating the elimination of Palestinians as a people. Imagine a rally which demanded more violence. The international shock and outrage would dominate news coverage and debate for days or longer.

But in Times Square Friday night, Mohammad Qatanani did just that. Qatanani, the imam at Paterson, N.J.’s Islamic Center of Passaic County, has spent a decade battling the government’s efforts to deport him over his failure to disclose Hamas ties, told the crowd that all peace efforts should be cut off.

“Our message to the Palestinian authority, you have to stop all kinds of peace process, no peace process and negotiation with the occupation in Palestine. Oslo has to be stopped and to be finished. We have to start a new intifada.” He then led the crowd in chanting, “intifada, intifada!”

Previous intifadas featured deadly terrorist attacks, including suicide bombings, shootings and deadly knife attacks.

We have chronicled the effect blind hatred for Israel has on Palestinian advocates. It leads them to treat terrorist murderers and their enablers as heroes. It causes otherwise rational people to see no moral distinction between Israel and ISIS.

No one expected universal praise for the new U.S. policy toward Jerusalem. What too many Palestinian advocates are doing here, however, is dropping any veneer of moderation or hopes for peace. They will only accept peace when an existing nation and its people are wiped. There’s a word for that.

Why End Times? (78) Chapter 7 Jerusalem Why Israel?

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer..From the book Why End Times? Chapter 7 Jerusalem

David made the choiceDavid had identified the site where the Temple would be built. God chose by choosing David, the man after His own heart, and David made Gods choice. The Lord inspired Davids heart and thus Davids choice became Gods choice. In Psalm 132, David had said: I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids; till I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob (Psalm 132:4-5). Jerusalem was to be the city where the Lord chose to establish His Name, 2 Chronicles 12:13.

The mountain of His inheritance was the place that the Lord had chosen for His dwelling place. (Exodus 15:17; 1 Kings 11:32, 36; 14:21): For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwell- ing. This is My resting place forever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it (Psalm 132:13-14). Psalm 132 clearly shows that the Lord, David and his descendants, Jerusalem, and the mountain (Zion/ Moriah) are in an insoluble relationship.

The Lord has decided to make Jerusalem a dwelling for His Name. The eternal God, Creator of heaven and earth, has chosen to live there. There is His holy mountain, (Isaiah 11:9, 56:7, 65:11, 25; Zephaniah 3:11), Mount Zion, (Joel 2:1, 3:17), where God has fixed His dwelling place, (Psalm 74:2). There is the house of the God of Jacob, Isaiah 2:3, the house of the Lord, Ezekiel 8:14,16; Joel 1:13-14; Micah 4:1-2 and Haggai 1:14.

When the Temple was built on that place by King Solomon, and was dedicated: the cloud filled the Temple of the Lord. And the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the Glory of the Lord [Shekinah] filled His Temple (1 Kings 8:10-11). The Lord dwelt in the Holy of Holies in the Temple. He was present in the cloud as He had been present during the earlier wanderings in the desert, when the cloud had covered the Tabernacle. Exodus 40:34-38 says: Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the Tabernacle. Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting because the cloud had settled upon it, and the Glory of the LORD filled the Tabernacle. In all the travels of the Israelites, whenever the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle, they would set out; but if the cloud did not lift, they did not set out-until the day it lifted. So the cloud of the LORD was over the Tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel during all their travels.

Of course, Solomon knew very well that God couldnt be confined to a Temple made of stone. At the dedication, he asked: But will God really dwell on the earth? The heavens, even the highest heaven, cannot contain You. How much less this Temple I have built! (1 Kings 8:27). Isaiah, too, knew this when he spoke in Gods Name: Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool (Isaiah 66:1), words that Jesus repeats when He calls heaven the throne of God, the earth His footstool, and Jerusalem the city of the great King (Matthew 5:34- 35). And yet the Lord Himself chose Jerusalem as the place on earth where He would dwell.

We heard about the song which Moses sang after the miraculous crossing of the Red Sea during the Exodus from Egypt; it includes the following words: You will bring them in and plant them on the mountain of Your inheritance the place, O Lord, You made for Your dwelling, the sanctuary, O Lord, Your hands established (Exodus 15:17). Later on, we remember, he tells the Israelites to: Rejoice before the Lord your God at the place He will choose as a dwelling for His Name you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants, the Levites in your towns, and the aliens, the fatherless and the widows living among you. We remember how Moses had said this in Deuteronomy 16:2 and also in 5-6: Sacrifice as the Passover to the LORD your God an animalfrom your flock or herd at the place the LORD will choose as a dwelling for His Name. You must not sacrifice the Passover in any town the LORD your God gives you except in the place He will choose as a dwelling for his Name. There you must sacrifice the Passover in the evening, when the sun goes down, on the anniversary of your departure from Egypt.

There is room in the Temple for the stranger too, as is clearly seen from Solomons prayer of dedication: As for the foreigner who does not belong to Your people Israel but has come from a distant land because of Your Name for men will hear of Your great Name and Your mighty hand and Your outstretched arm when he comes and prays toward this house, then hear from heaven, Your dwelling place, and do whatever the foreigner asks of You, so that all the peoples of the earth may know Your name and fear You, as do Your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears Your Name (1 Kings 8:41-43). Jerusalem had finally become the place where God would provide for Israel, for body, soul and spirit, what they needed. And not just for Israel but for strangers who would come and pray as well. Jerusalem, a place of blessing for Israel and the world!

Hamas Slams Arab Peace Delegation Visiting Israel | United …

Hamas slammed a group from Bahrain visiting Israel to open dialogue and build bridges between the Arab world and the Jewish State.

The Hamas terror group on Sunday strongly condemned an interfaith delegation from the Arab Kingdom of Bahrain visiting Israel, especially at a time when Israeli occupation continues to commit terrible crimes against humanity and campaigns of racial cleansing against the Palestinian people and their holy places.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum stated that the goodwill mission demonstrates the total disregard for the anger of the Palestinian, Arab and Islamic nation over Trumps decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the so-called Israel.

The group of 30 people from Bahrain, including Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews and Muslims, arrived in Israel a few days after President Donald Trumps historic recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital.

Hamas considered this visit a crime against our people, just cause and holy places, and a disregardto the feelings of the Muslim and Arabs and to the supporters of the Palestinian cause, and also serves as a green light for the Israeli occupation to continue in perpetrating more crimes and violations against the Palestinian people, Barhoum stated.

Israel, as the symbol of terrorism, racism and extremism in the world, must be boycotted, isolated and exposed rather than to be visited or praised to beautify its ugly image, Hamas demanded.

Hamas also called for the immediate ending to all types of normalization and communication with the Israeli occupation from any party and at any level.

We urge for mobilizing all energies of the Islamic and Arab nation to support the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian people and their rights and fundamental issues, the terror group stated.

The organizers of the delegation repeatedly described the trip as nonpolitical. However, the timing comes as Bahrain increasingly looks like the test case for other Gulf Arab nations to evaluate the impact of recognizing Israel.

The goal here is to multiply the interactions and contacts among people doing similar things in the overall region, Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) toldThe Associated Presson Sunday. Until now, there was absolutely no chance of having contact.

The group was welcomed with violence by a Palestinian mob as it attempted to visit the Gaza Strip on Monday.

Dozens of Palestinian activists gathered in front of the Beit Hanoun crossing in the northern Gaza Strip to prevent the Bahraini delegation from entering the Strip, the PalestinianMaannews agency reported.

The mob torched tires and chanted slogans condemning normalization with Israel.

One activist told Maan that they would not allow the delegation to enter and that they would treat them as enemies, while another said he had brought rotten eggs to throw at members of the delegation.

Israel & the Palestinian Territories travel – Lonely Planet

Holy Sites

Cradle of Judaism and Christianity and sacred to Muslims and Bahais, the Holy Land invites visitors to immerse themselves in the richness and variety of the region’s religious traditions. Ancient Jewish sites include Jerusalems Western Wall and Byzantine-era synagogues adorned with sumptuous mosaics. The Roman-era synagogues around the Sea of Galilee may have been used by Jews and Christians before they diverged into separate faiths. Both Christian pilgrims and tourists can explore sites associated with Jesuss birth (in Bethlehem), ministry (in Nazareth and around the Sea of Galilee) and crucifixion (in Jerusalem). For Muslims, only Mecca and Medina are holier than Jerusalems Al Haram Ash Sharif, known to Jews as the Temple Mount perhaps the most contested site on earth.

Brash, forward-looking and unabashedly secular, Tel Aviv is a multicultural swirl of skyscrapers, bike paths, atmospheric cafes, stylish bistros and buff bods tanning on the sand. Tel Aviv may be a relatively new city by Israeli standards (it was first founded in 1909) but earned Unesco World Heritage status by virtue of its 1930s-style Bauhaus architecture. Israel’s self-described ‘start-up city’, it is world-renowned as a tech hub and is home to some of the country’s most happening firms as well as myriad bars, pubs and clubs.

Thanks to the painstaking work of generations of archaeologists, modern-day visitors can explore the 10,000-year-old mud-brick relics of Jericho, enter into the world of David and Solomon in Jerusalems City of David, and twin a visit to Masada, with its dramatic tale of resistance to the mighty legions of Rome, with a tour of the thoroughfares and theatres of Beit Shean, still pulsing with Roman opulence. Many of the countrys most extraordinary finds are on display in Jerusalems Israel Museum.

Few countries have so much geographic variety packed into such a small space. Distances are short, so you can relax on a Mediterranean beach one day, spend the next floating in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea, and the day after that scuba diving in the Red Sea. Hikers can trek the length of the country on the Israel National Trail, splash through seasonal streams as they tumble towards the Jordan, explore spring-fed oases tucked into the arid bluffs above the Dead Sea, and explore the multicoloured sandstone formations of Makhtesh Ramon. Many trails are ideal for mountain biking.

My 10 Favorite Hate-Crime Hoaxes – Taki’s Magazine

The Reverend Al Sharpton

It was a tough week for racial witch hunters. In fact, its been a tough quarter-century for them. Reality keeps knocking the liberal media off its high horse. When they picked up the Trayvon Martin case, hordes of TV dupes donned hoods and said they, too, were all young black kids being murdered by racist vigilantes. Then we find out Zimmerman is some kind of Peruvian Jew and may have had his ass kicked by Trayvon before the shooting, so they drop it. They wanted Dharun Ravi to go jail for ten years for the hate crime of pranking his roommate, but the evidence left him serving 30 days for colossal insensitivity. When blacks are randomly assassinated in Oklahoma, the left quickly goes mute when they discover one of the shooters is Cherokee.

When a white couple is raped and dismembered in Knoxville, the media is suddenly deaf, dumb, and blind. When children get gang-raped but the bad guys are Muslim, even the police wont touch it.

This kind of naivet would be laughable if it wasnt so deadly. In Louisiana, the Jena 6 were duped into pulverizing a kid based on a noose incident the media wrongly determined was about race. This fake story had a domino effect and years later were left with jail time and lawsuits. Countless violent attacks were committed on behalf of Trayvon, at least two of which left their victims (Dallas Watts and Matthew Owens) comatose.

When you create a victim culture, you also create a vacuum where opportunistic parasites volunteer to fill the role and reap the rewards.

Here are ten examples of fabricated hate crimes that fuck it up for those of us living in the real world.

1. KKK, NIGGER, AND BITCH SCRAWLED ON BLACK VICTIMS TORSOIn 1987 Tawana Brawley claimed to have been abducted and raped by white cops, who left her to die in the garbage. She said epithets were written on her body upside down in a black substance that resembled charcoal. Brawley was sued for making up the story. She subsequently converted to Islam.

2. SWASTIKA PAINTED ON TALK-SHOW HOSTS FOREHEADIn 1989, Morton Downey, Jr. claimed that Nazi skinheads painted a swastika on his forehead in an airport bathroom. Then people noticed the swastika was backwards, which is how it would be drawn if you did it yourself in front of a mirror.

3. SWASTIKA AND BURN NIGGER BURN SPRAY-PAINTED ON CRIPPLED BLACK LESBIAN CANCER VICTIMS HOUSEA cancer-stricken black lesbian in a wheelchair was subjected to the visceral hatred of some stranger who spray-painted Burn Nigger Burn on her house. Police got suspicious and installed a surveillance camera, which revealed said black lesbian lighting a cross on fire. She also wasnt handicapped and had even shaved her eyebrows to try and convince people she was undergoing chemo.

4. ANOTHER BLACK MAN DRAGGED BEHIND A TRUCKIn 1998, the same year James Byrd was dragged behind a truck, a black drug dealer named Cornelius Weaver said the same thing happened to him. It was investigated as a hate crime until Weaver was forced to admit his wounds were the result of getting the shit kicked out of him in a drug deal gone wrong.

5. RACIST HATE LETTERS SENT TO BLACK STUDENTSIn 2005, Alicia Hardin convinced authorities that racists were sending hate mail to nonwhite kids in her class. The Chicago school got so spooked, they relocated minority students to a motel. Alicia was sent to jail for sending the letters herself.

6. WHITE COLLEGE STUDENTS GANG-RAPE BLACK GIRLIn 2006 members of the Duke University lacrosse team were accused of gang-raping a black stripper. Everyone from Al Sharpton to local District Attorney Mike Nifong jumped on this hate crime and ruined the kids lives while stoking racial tension across the nation. In the end, the only people who went to jail were Nifong and the black stripper.

7. NOOSE ON COLUMBIA PROFS DOORIn 2007, Columbia professor Madonna Constantine discovered a noose on her office door. She was under investigation for serial plagiarism, and this incident had the potential to turn her from perp to victim. It workedfor a while. Eventually she lost her job and the noose story hit her ass on the way out.

8. CRIME SCENE INCLUDES NIGGER WRITTEN IN BLOOD NEXT TO BODYThat same year, Penn State football player and pot dealer Langston Carraway was found stabbed to death with the word NIGGER written next to him in his own blood. The black community was furious the story wasnt getting more coverage until they learned Carraway was stabbed by another black football player who needed money to pay off some debts (including money owed for a tattoo). Though stories like this represent a tiny fraction of the news, 93% of black murder victims are killed by other blacks.

9. KILL THE GAY PAINTED ON LESBIANS GARAGEOn Saturday, we learned of two Colorado lesbians who had their garage door vandalized with the hateful slogan above. They felt very passionate about capturing the perpetrator until the police did a scan for spray paint on the lesbians hands. One of the lesbians is now being charged with criminal mischief.

10. KKK CARVED ON LAKOTA ELDEROn Monday, demonstrators in Rapid City, SD marched two miles to the local hospital to protest a group of racist surgeons who had carved KKK into an American Indians stomach during his triple bypass. The police looked into the allegations and couldnt see the scarring. The victim had to admit he couldnt see it either because hes blind.

Ive only listed ten examples but there are dozens and dozens more. This is a great compilation of hate-crime hoaxes from 1993.

So when did we become such complete faggots about everything? The old America had men who built the Empire State Building in under two yearsduring the Depressionto spite a rival who built the Chrysler Building. Today we are so eager to capitulate, the Twin Towers collapse and we ask, Why do they hate us?

When you create a victim culture, you also create a vacuum where opportunistic parasites volunteer to fill the role and reap the rewards.

Leftists want America to be a racist hellhole so badly, they make it so. If were going to stampede anyone in the name of racial equality and justice for all, how about we start with them?

Erdogan risks diplomatic spat with Israel over Jerusalem

Istanbul (AFP) – By repeatedly hitting out at the US move to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan may be catering to his voter base, but he risks sabotaging Turkey’s already fragile relations with the Jewish state.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to Erdogan, saying he was “not used to receiving lectures about morality from a leader who bombs Kurdish villagers in his native Turkey, who jails journalists, who helps Iran go around international sanctions, and who helps terrorists, including in Gaza”. Erdogan, who considers himself a fervent supporter of the Palestinians, will hold a summit of leaders of Muslim countries on Wednesday, which he claimed will mark a “turning point” in the response to Washington’s decision. Traditional heavyweights of the Middle East like Saudi Arabia and Egypt have condemned the move, but without announcing any concrete measures of their own. – ‘Serious risk’ – Erdogan, who comes from a conservative Islamist background, frequently criticises Israel and does not conceal his support for the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, listed as a terrorist organisation by the US, Israel and several countries around the world. His statements have been “consistent with the prevailing feelings among his own followers inside Turkey”, said Marc Pierini, visiting scholar at Carnegie Europe and former EU ambassador to Turkey.

I think this is likely to continue, given Erdogan’s political calculations and Netanyahu’s own legal and political problems,” he added. – ‘Domestic considerations prevail’ – Sinan Ulgen, chairman of the Istanbul-based Centre for Economics and Foreign Policy and visiting scholar at Carnegie Europe, believes that Erdogan’s rhetoric on Jerusalem more broadly reflects a shift in Turkey’s foreign policy approach since the arrival of the Islamic-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP) in 2002. “Traditionally, Turkey was able, in its diplomatic practice, to operate more in isolation from domestic political considerations,” Ulgen said. “This has changed under AKP rule so that Turkey finds itself at almost another extreme where most foreign policy decisions are driven by domestic calculations.” Ulgen said that it was from this perspective that Turkey’s efforts to lead the campaign against the US move should be read. Erdogan “believes that there is public support at home to justify this more aggressive rhetoric against Israel”, even if it risks provoking a new diplomatic crisis, Ulgen said. “One more time, domestic considerations tend to prevail over more cautious diplomatic practice.”

Imagine a pro-Israel rally featuring similar rhetoric taunting Palestinians over a massacre or advocating the elimination of Palestinians as a people. Imagine a rally which demanded more violence. The international shock and outrage would dominate news coverage and debate for days or longer. But in Times Square Friday night, Mohammad Qatanani did just that. Qatanani, the imam at Paterson, N.J.’s Islamic Center of Passaic County, has spent a decade battling the government’s efforts to deport him over his failure to disclose Hamas ties, told the crowd that all peace efforts should be cut off. “Our message to the Palestinian authority, you have to stop all kinds of peace process, no peace process and negotiation with the occupation in Palestine. Oslo has to be stopped and to be finished. We have to start a new intifada.” He then led the crowd in chanting, “intifada, intifada!” Previous intifadas featured deadly terrorist attacks, including suicide bombings, shootings and deadly knife attacks. We have chronicled the effect blind hatred for Israel has on Palestinian advocates. It leads them to treat terrorist murderers and their enablers as heroes. It causes otherwise rational people to see no moral distinction between Israel and ISIS. No one expected universal praise for the new U.S. policy toward Jerusalem. What too many Palestinian advocates are doing here, however, is dropping any veneer of moderation or hopes for peace. They will only accept peace when an existing nation and its people are wiped. There’s a word for that. Steven Emerson is executive director of The Investigative Project on Terrorism. He was a correspondent for CNN and a senior editor at U.S. News and World Report.

Why End Times? (78) Chapter 7 Jerusalem Why Israel?

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer..From the book Why End Times? Chapter 7 Jerusalem David made the choiceDavid had identified the site where the Temple would be built. God chose by choosing David, the man after His own heart, and David made Gods choice. The Lord inspired Davids heart and thus Davids choice became Gods choice. In Psalm 132, David had said: I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids; till I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob (Psalm 132:4-5). Jerusalem was to be the city where the Lord chose to establish His Name, 2 Chronicles 12:13. The mountain of His inheritance was the place that the Lord had chosen for His dwelling place. (Exodus 15:17; 1 Kings 11:32, 36; 14:21): For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwell- ing. This is My resting place forever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it (Psalm 132:13-14). Psalm 132 clearly shows that the Lord, David and his descendants, Jerusalem, and the mountain (Zion/ Moriah) are in an insoluble relationship. The Lord has decided to make Jerusalem a dwelling for His Name. The eternal God, Creator of heaven and earth, has chosen to live there. There is His holy mountain, (Isaiah 11:9, 56:7, 65:11, 25; Zephaniah 3:11), Mount Zion, (Joel 2:1, 3:17), where God has fixed His dwelling place, (Psalm 74:2). There is the house of the God of Jacob, Isaiah 2:3, the house of the Lord, Ezekiel 8:14,16; Joel 1:13-14; Micah 4:1-2 and Haggai 1:14. When the Temple was built on that place by King Solomon, and was dedicated: the cloud filled the Temple of the Lord. And the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the Glory of the Lord [Shekinah] filled His Temple (1 Kings 8:10-11). The Lord dwelt in the Holy of Holies in the Temple. He was present in the cloud as He had been present during the earlier wanderings in the desert, when the cloud had covered the Tabernacle. Exodus 40:34-38 says: Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the Tabernacle. Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting because the cloud had settled upon it, and the Glory of the LORD filled the Tabernacle. In all the travels of the Israelites, whenever the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle, they would set out; but if the cloud did not lift, they did not set out-until the day it lifted. So the cloud of the LORD was over the Tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel during all their travels. Of course, Solomon knew very well that God couldnt be confined to a Temple made of stone. At the dedication, he asked: But will God really dwell on the earth? The heavens, even the highest heaven, cannot contain You. How much less this Temple I have built! (1 Kings 8:27). Isaiah, too, knew this when he spoke in Gods Name: Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool (Isaiah 66:1), words that Jesus repeats when He calls heaven the throne of God, the earth His footstool, and Jerusalem the city of the great King (Matthew 5:34- 35). And yet the Lord Himself chose Jerusalem as the place on earth where He would dwell. We heard about the song which Moses sang after the miraculous crossing of the Red Sea during the Exodus from Egypt; it includes the following words: You will bring them in and plant them on the mountain of Your inheritance the place, O Lord, You made for Your dwelling, the sanctuary, O Lord, Your hands established (Exodus 15:17). Later on, we remember, he tells the Israelites to: Rejoice before the Lord your God at the place He will choose as a dwelling for His Name you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants, the Levites in your towns, and the aliens, the fatherless and the widows living among you. We remember how Moses had said this in Deuteronomy 16:2 and also in 5-6: Sacrifice as the Passover to the LORD your God an animalfrom your flock or herd at the place the LORD will choose as a dwelling for His Name. You must not sacrifice the Passover in any town the LORD your God gives you except in the place He will choose as a dwelling for his Name. There you must sacrifice the Passover in the evening, when the sun goes down, on the anniversary of your departure from Egypt. There is room in the Temple for the stranger too, as is clearly seen from Solomons prayer of dedication: As for the foreigner who does not belong to Your people Israel but has come from a distant land because of Your Name for men will hear of Your great Name and Your mighty hand and Your outstretched arm when he comes and prays toward this house, then hear from heaven, Your dwelling place, and do whatever the foreigner asks of You, so that all the peoples of the earth may know Your name and fear You, as do Your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears Your Name (1 Kings 8:41-43). Jerusalem had finally become the place where God would provide for Israel, for body, soul and spirit, what they needed. And not just for Israel but for strangers who would come and pray as well. Jerusalem, a place of blessing for Israel and the world!

Finally, Glick teaches about the greatness of Rabbi Yehuda Leib Steinman, the 104 year old Torah giant who died Tuesday.

Hamas Slams Arab Peace Delegation Visiting Israel | United …

Hamas slammed a group from Bahrain visiting Israel to open dialogue and build bridges between the Arab world and the Jewish State. The Hamas terror group on Sunday strongly condemned an interfaith delegation from the Arab Kingdom of Bahrain visiting Israel, especially at a time when Israeli occupation continues to commit terrible crimes against humanity and campaigns of racial cleansing against the Palestinian people and their holy places. Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum stated that the goodwill mission demonstrates the total disregard for the anger of the Palestinian, Arab and Islamic nation over Trumps decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the so-called Israel. The group of 30 people from Bahrain, including Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews and Muslims, arrived in Israel a few days after President Donald Trumps historic recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital. Hamas considered this visit a crime against our people, just cause and holy places, and a disregardto the feelings of the Muslim and Arabs and to the supporters of the Palestinian cause, and also serves as a green light for the Israeli occupation to continue in perpetrating more crimes and violations against the Palestinian people, Barhoum stated. Israel, as the symbol of terrorism, racism and extremism in the world, must be boycotted, isolated and exposed rather than to be visited or praised to beautify its ugly image, Hamas demanded. Hamas also called for the immediate ending to all types of normalization and communication with the Israeli occupation from any party and at any level. We urge for mobilizing all energies of the Islamic and Arab nation to support the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian people and their rights and fundamental issues, the terror group stated. The organizers of the delegation repeatedly described the trip as nonpolitical. However, the timing comes as Bahrain increasingly looks like the test case for other Gulf Arab nations to evaluate the impact of recognizing Israel. The goal here is to multiply the interactions and contacts among people doing similar things in the overall region, Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) toldThe Associated Presson Sunday. Until now, there was absolutely no chance of having contact. The group was welcomed with violence by a Palestinian mob as it attempted to visit the Gaza Strip on Monday. Dozens of Palestinian activists gathered in front of the Beit Hanoun crossing in the northern Gaza Strip to prevent the Bahraini delegation from entering the Strip, the PalestinianMaannews agency reported. The mob torched tires and chanted slogans condemning normalization with Israel. One activist told Maan that they would not allow the delegation to enter and that they would treat them as enemies, while another said he had brought rotten eggs to throw at members of the delegation.

Israel & the Palestinian Territories travel – Lonely Planet

Holy Sites Cradle of Judaism and Christianity and sacred to Muslims and Bahais, the Holy Land invites visitors to immerse themselves in the richness and variety of the region’s religious traditions. Ancient Jewish sites include Jerusalems Western Wall and Byzantine-era synagogues adorned with sumptuous mosaics. The Roman-era synagogues around the Sea of Galilee may have been used by Jews and Christians before they diverged into separate faiths. Both Christian pilgrims and tourists can explore sites associated with Jesuss birth (in Bethlehem), ministry (in Nazareth and around the Sea of Galilee) and crucifixion (in Jerusalem). For Muslims, only Mecca and Medina are holier than Jerusalems Al Haram Ash Sharif, known to Jews as the Temple Mount perhaps the most contested site on earth. Brash, forward-looking and unabashedly secular, Tel Aviv is a multicultural swirl of skyscrapers, bike paths, atmospheric cafes, stylish bistros and buff bods tanning on the sand. Tel Aviv may be a relatively new city by Israeli standards (it was first founded in 1909) but earned Unesco World Heritage status by virtue of its 1930s-style Bauhaus architecture. Israel’s self-described ‘start-up city’, it is world-renowned as a tech hub and is home to some of the country’s most happening firms as well as myriad bars, pubs and clubs. Thanks to the painstaking work of generations of archaeologists, modern-day visitors can explore the 10,000-year-old mud-brick relics of Jericho, enter into the world of David and Solomon in Jerusalems City of David, and twin a visit to Masada, with its dramatic tale of resistance to the mighty legions of Rome, with a tour of the thoroughfares and theatres of Beit Shean, still pulsing with Roman opulence. Many of the countrys most extraordinary finds are on display in Jerusalems Israel Museum. Few countries have so much geographic variety packed into such a small space. Distances are short, so you can relax on a Mediterranean beach one day, spend the next floating in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea, and the day after that scuba diving in the Red Sea. Hikers can trek the length of the country on the Israel National Trail, splash through seasonal streams as they tumble towards the Jordan, explore spring-fed oases tucked into the arid bluffs above the Dead Sea, and explore the multicoloured sandstone formations of Makhtesh Ramon. Many trails are ideal for mountain biking. Read Less

My 10 Favorite Hate-Crime Hoaxes – Taki’s Magazine

The Reverend Al Sharpton It was a tough week for racial witch hunters. In fact, its been a tough quarter-century for them. Reality keeps knocking the liberal media off its high horse. When they picked up the Trayvon Martin case, hordes of TV dupes donned hoods and said they, too, were all young black kids being murdered by racist vigilantes. Then we find out Zimmerman is some kind of Peruvian Jew and may have had his ass kicked by Trayvon before the shooting, so they drop it. They wanted Dharun Ravi to go jail for ten years for the hate crime of pranking his roommate, but the evidence left him serving 30 days for colossal insensitivity. When blacks are randomly assassinated in Oklahoma, the left quickly goes mute when they discover one of the shooters is Cherokee. When a white couple is raped and dismembered in Knoxville, the media is suddenly deaf, dumb, and blind. When children get gang-raped but the bad guys are Muslim, even the police wont touch it. This kind of naivet would be laughable if it wasnt so deadly. In Louisiana, the Jena 6 were duped into pulverizing a kid based on a noose incident the media wrongly determined was about race. This fake story had a domino effect and years later were left with jail time and lawsuits. Countless violent attacks were committed on behalf of Trayvon, at least two of which left their victims (Dallas Watts and Matthew Owens) comatose. When you create a victim culture, you also create a vacuum where opportunistic parasites volunteer to fill the role and reap the rewards. Here are ten examples of fabricated hate crimes that fuck it up for those of us living in the real world. 1. KKK, NIGGER, AND BITCH SCRAWLED ON BLACK VICTIMS TORSOIn 1987 Tawana Brawley claimed to have been abducted and raped by white cops, who left her to die in the garbage. She said epithets were written on her body upside down in a black substance that resembled charcoal. Brawley was sued for making up the story. She subsequently converted to Islam. 2. SWASTIKA PAINTED ON TALK-SHOW HOSTS FOREHEADIn 1989, Morton Downey, Jr. claimed that Nazi skinheads painted a swastika on his forehead in an airport bathroom. Then people noticed the swastika was backwards, which is how it would be drawn if you did it yourself in front of a mirror. 3. SWASTIKA AND BURN NIGGER BURN SPRAY-PAINTED ON CRIPPLED BLACK LESBIAN CANCER VICTIMS HOUSEA cancer-stricken black lesbian in a wheelchair was subjected to the visceral hatred of some stranger who spray-painted Burn Nigger Burn on her house. Police got suspicious and installed a surveillance camera, which revealed said black lesbian lighting a cross on fire. She also wasnt handicapped and had even shaved her eyebrows to try and convince people she was undergoing chemo. 4. ANOTHER BLACK MAN DRAGGED BEHIND A TRUCKIn 1998, the same year James Byrd was dragged behind a truck, a black drug dealer named Cornelius Weaver said the same thing happened to him. It was investigated as a hate crime until Weaver was forced to admit his wounds were the result of getting the shit kicked out of him in a drug deal gone wrong. 5. RACIST HATE LETTERS SENT TO BLACK STUDENTSIn 2005, Alicia Hardin convinced authorities that racists were sending hate mail to nonwhite kids in her class. The Chicago school got so spooked, they relocated minority students to a motel. Alicia was sent to jail for sending the letters herself. 6. WHITE COLLEGE STUDENTS GANG-RAPE BLACK GIRLIn 2006 members of the Duke University lacrosse team were accused of gang-raping a black stripper. Everyone from Al Sharpton to local District Attorney Mike Nifong jumped on this hate crime and ruined the kids lives while stoking racial tension across the nation. In the end, the only people who went to jail were Nifong and the black stripper. 7. NOOSE ON COLUMBIA PROFS DOORIn 2007, Columbia professor Madonna Constantine discovered a noose on her office door. She was under investigation for serial plagiarism, and this incident had the potential to turn her from perp to victim. It workedfor a while. Eventually she lost her job and the noose story hit her ass on the way out. 8. CRIME SCENE INCLUDES NIGGER WRITTEN IN BLOOD NEXT TO BODYThat same year, Penn State football player and pot dealer Langston Carraway was found stabbed to death with the word NIGGER written next to him in his own blood. The black community was furious the story wasnt getting more coverage until they learned Carraway was stabbed by another black football player who needed money to pay off some debts (including money owed for a tattoo). Though stories like this represent a tiny fraction of the news, 93% of black murder victims are killed by other blacks. 9. KILL THE GAY PAINTED ON LESBIANS GARAGEOn Saturday, we learned of two Colorado lesbians who had their garage door vandalized with the hateful slogan above. They felt very passionate about capturing the perpetrator until the police did a scan for spray paint on the lesbians hands. One of the lesbians is now being charged with criminal mischief. 10. KKK CARVED ON LAKOTA ELDEROn Monday, demonstrators in Rapid City, SD marched two miles to the local hospital to protest a group of racist surgeons who had carved KKK into an American Indians stomach during his triple bypass. The police looked into the allegations and couldnt see the scarring. The victim had to admit he couldnt see it either because hes blind. Ive only listed ten examples but there are dozens and dozens more. This is a great compilation of hate-crime hoaxes from 1993. So when did we become such complete faggots about everything? The old America had men who built the Empire State Building in under two yearsduring the Depressionto spite a rival who built the Chrysler Building. Today we are so eager to capitulate, the Twin Towers collapse and we ask, Why do they hate us? When you create a victim culture, you also create a vacuum where opportunistic parasites volunteer to fill the role and reap the rewards. Leftists want America to be a racist hellhole so badly, they make it so. If were going to stampede anyone in the name of racial equality and justice for all, how about we start with them?
