Jerusalem: Location and Facts | HISTORY.com

Since Israels independence, clashes between Israelis and Palestinians over key territories in Jerusalem have been ongoing.

Jewish law forbids Jews from praying in the Temple Mount. Yet, Israeli forces allow hundreds of Jewish settlers to enter the area routinely, which some Palestinians fear could lead to an Israeli takeover.

In fact, one key event that led to the Second Palestinian Intifada (a Palestinian uprising against Israel) happened when Jewish leader Ariel Sharon, who would become Israels Prime Minister, visited Jerusalems Temple Mount in 2000.

In recent years, some Israeli groups have even announced a plan to construct a third Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. This proposal has outraged Palestinians living in the region.

In addition, both Israelis and Palestinians have aimed to make the city their capitals.

In 1980, Israel declared Jerusalem as its capital, but most of the international community doesnt recognize this distinction.

In May 2017, the Palestinian group Hamas presented a document that proposed the formation of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. However, the group refused to recognize Israel as a state, and the Israeli government immediately rejected the idea.

New York City – B’nai B’rith International

New York – B’nai B’rith Young Leadership NetworkThe program year in NY kicked off in October 2014 with a joint Shabbat Dinner with Manhattan Jewish Experience-East. The evening provided a traditional Shabbat Dinner with over 85 young Jewish professionals coming together to observe Shabbat and meet new people.

Following that event, on Thursday, Jan. 22, 2015, the YLN-NYC met up at the German Consulate for Conversations Around the World. About 18-20 young Jewish leaders came together to hear the Consul General of Germany, Brita Wagener, speak about the current German-Jewish community and the impact of the various anti-Semitic situations in many countries on their community. After she spoke, there was a brief question and answer session, followed by wine and light refreshments. It was a great event and the YLN-NYC plan to have more events at the many consulates and diplomatic missions on the calendar for the spring and summer schedule.

A March event will be a social program in conjunction with the Congregation Agudath Israel- Young Professionals, who have an active group in both NYC and NJ.

Upcoming events will include a fundraising event to benefit the National Mitzvah project, which will be chosen soon by the National Committee of Young Leadership.

NYC young pros gather for one of the Global Round Table events.

Is Earth a Prison/Slave Planet ? – Alien UFO Sightings

Science has proven that hominids have lived on this planet for a very long time. It has also proven that Homo Sapiens Sapiens (Cro-Magnon or Modern man) have not. Our ancestors were quarantined to Earthin order to stop, or at the very least isolate, the spread of mental illness, crime and murder. And, like our ancestors, we are prone to exhibiting the same criminal behavior and mental illness.

It is an inescapable part of our nature. It is not our fault, but ratherit was caused bydeviated genetic code. There is not a single human who is free of violent, lustful, vengeful, thieving and/or murderous thoughts. The unnatural horrors that humans experience on this planet are almost always caused by our species. Humans lie, steal, cheat, rape, murder and pollute. When we can no longer exert more dominion over air, water, land and animal, we victimize our own kind. We are a horrible menace to ourselves, to all the creatures of this planet, and to interstellar civilization.

The treacherous and murderous ways of human beings remain a very real threat to peace in the universe.

Earth was chosen to become a prison planet because of its remote location, varied climates, and the ability to support hominid life forms. Our ancestors were placed on different continents, selected for similarities to their physical characteristics and former climatic environments. Even though our ancestorsvaried in language, size, shape and color, all were Cro-Magnon. But, before being placed on Earth, our ancestors were stripped of all memory of their former lives.

It was believed that if the prisoners survived, they would do so in a primal state, co-existing by building relationships and possibly even interbreeding, with Earths native hominid species. It was a belief that was proven very wrong. We immediately began to dominate everything that came into our path. And, the sudden terrestrial appearance of modern man was on a scale so large, that it allowed Cro-Magnoids to drive Neanderthals, who had been at the top of Earths food chain for well over 200,000 years, to near global extinction within just a few thousand years.

At first, it appeared as though the Cro-magnon exile was proceeding as planned, but within a thousand years it became obvious that very serious oversights and assumptions had been made.The concept of prisoners remaining in a primal state was shattered when our ancestors began creating a microcosm of interstellar civilization. Earth, for the first time in its history, became witness to art, architecture, animal husbandry, agriculture, written languages, advanced mathematics, technology, law, religion and government. It also became witness to the atrocities of modern man. And, instead of interbreeding with other species, we began the systematic manipulation and/or destruction of other life forms.

Testing revealed that the surprising intellectual and technological development of our ancestors was the result of genetic memory, which caused us to experience intellectual reversion, rather than progression. This set off a very heated debate. One group called for the immediate extermination of our ancestors before they genetically remembered to the point of achieving interstellar flight, and possible re-infection of intergalactic civilization. The others were firmly convinced that, if given enough time, we would self-destruct and sought to simply observe and curtail our development.

An impasse was eventually reached, and further direct contact was forbidden. Continued observation and assessment of the prison planet was agreed upon, under strict conditions. It is important to note that one of the most significant turning points in last ten million years of Earths history occurred when our ancestors arrived on Earth, and began neanderthal annihilation.

Our incarceration on Earth was not agreed to by all. From the first days of our imprisonment on Earth, sympathizers in UFOs have slipped past security and assisted select civilizations. These extraterrestrial visits always resulted in dramatic leaps of intellectual ability and technological accomplishment. Unfortunately, virtually all of those civilizations and their advanced technologies met with very sudden disaster, and in the majority of the cases, extinction. The true causes remain unknown.

SPLC and Raw Story Blame Patriots for the LAX Shooting

Kurt NimmoInfowars.comNovember 3, 2013

The Paul Ciancia story is custom-made for the likes of the SPLC, Raw Story, and the rest of government-loving cheerleaders who are constantly on the lookout for right-wing predators to pin their hysterical false left-right paradigm theories on.

On Saturday, the Southern Poverty Law Center put it all into focus for us. The LAX shooter was carrying a one-page manifesto that included references to the New World Order, the Federal Reserve and fiat currency, according to a knowledgeable source with ranking law enforcement contacts, writes Mark Potok.

Potok and the SPLC insinuate that Ciancia is a patriot ideologically connected to the those of us who believe the TSA is an unconstitutional Gestapo-like manifestation of an out of control police state. It will be more difficult to criticize the TSA now that one of their own has been gunned down by somebody who supposedly carried the banner of the patriot movement.

Raw Story naturally jumped on the bandwagon. It linked New World Order to a conspiracy-minded right and, more specifically, media figures Alex Jones and Glenn Beck. It stopped this short of directly blaming Jones and Beck for inciting a murder ostensibly committed by a mentally disturbed individual who threatened to commit suicide not long ago.

It was a sensible move by the rest of the liberal press to pass on this sort of fear-mongering for the moment, although a fair share of bloggers blamed Jones directly for Ciancias insanity.

What the West Can Learn from the Buddha and Gandhi

Writing during the Second World War, Julius Evola observed: “If one day normal conditions were to return, few civilizations would seem as odd as the present one, in which every form of power and dominion over material things is sought, while mastery over one’s own mind, one’s own emotions and psychic life in general is […]

RAMZPAUL: Are mass shooters disproportionately White …

After a mass shooting you typically will hear from Leftists that we have a White Christian problem. They will admit that, yes, sometimes Muslims commit mass shootings, but the REAL problem is with White Christians.

So I decided to do my own quick and dirty research. Below are the top 12 deadliest shootings in America’s history. Notice that over 50% have happened in the last 10 years.

Here is the chart of the racial and religious backgrounds of the shooters. I have also categorized the motive.

If we look at it racially, Whites are actually lower that what would be expected based on the percentage of the population.

And here are the religious backgrounds of the shooters compared to the population. Muslims and atheists are greatly overrepresented.

The motives can be somewhat unclear. But the big three causes seem to be:

1. Religious hatred2. Revenge / Financial loss3. Mental illness

Old City (Jerusalem) – Wikipedia

The Old City (Hebrew: , Ha’Ir Ha’Atiqah, Arabic: , al-Balda al-Qadimah) is a 0.9 square kilometers (0.35sqmi) walled area[2] within the modern city of Jerusalem.

Until 1860, when the Jewish neighborhood Mishkenot Sha’ananim was established, this area constituted the entire city of Jerusalem.

The Old City is home to several sites of key religious importance: the Temple Mount and Western Wall for Jews, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Christians and the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque for Muslims. It was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site List in 1981.

Traditionally, the Old City has been divided into four uneven quarters, although the current designations were introduced only in the 19th century.[3] Today, the Old City is roughly divided (going counterclockwise from the northeastern corner) into the Muslim Quarter, Christian Quarter, Armenian Quarter and Jewish Quarter. The Old City’s monumental defensive walls and city gates were built in the years 15351542 by the Turkish sultan Suleiman the Magnificent.[4] The current population of the Old City resides mostly in the Muslim and Christian quarters. As of 2007[update] the total population was 36,965; the breakdown of religious groups in 2006 was 27,500 Muslims (up from ca. 17,000 in 1967, with over 30,000 by 2013, tendency: growing); 5,681 Christians (ca. 6,000 in 1967), not including the 790 Armenians (down to ca. 500 by 2011, tendency: decreasing); and 3,089 Jews (starting with none in 1967, as they were evicted after the Old City was captured by Jordan following the 1948 ArabIsraeli War, with almost 3,000 plus some 1,500 yeshiva students by 2013, tendency: growing).[5][6][7]

Following the 1948 ArabIsraeli War, the Old City was captured by Jordan and all its Jewish residents were evicted. During the Six-Day War in 1967, which saw hand-to-hand fighting on the Temple Mount, Israeli forces captured the Old City along with the rest of East Jerusalem, subsequently annexing them as Israeli territory and reuniting them with the western part of the city. Today, the Israeli government controls the entire area, which it considers part of its national capital. However, the Jerusalem Law of 1980, which effectively annexed East Jerusalem to Israel, was declared null and void by United Nations Security Council Resolution 478. East Jerusalem is now regarded by the international community as part of occupied Palestinian territory.[8][9]

In 2010, Jerusalem’s oldest fragment of writing was found outside the Old City’s walls.[10]

According to the Hebrew Bible, before King David’s conquest of Jerusalem in the 11th century BCE the city was home to the Jebusites. The Bible describes the city as heavily fortified with a strong city wall, a fact confirmed by archaeology. The Bible names the city ruled by King David as the City of David, in Hebrew Ir David, which was identified southeast of the Old City walls, outside the Dung Gate. In the Bible, David’s son, King Solomon, extended the city walls to include the Temple and Temple Mount.

The city was largely extended westwards after the Neo-Assyrian destruction of the northern Kingdom of Israel and the resulting influx of refugees. Destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BCE, it was rebuilt on a smaller scale in about 440 BCE, during the Persian period, when, according to the Bible, Nehemiah led the Jews who returned from the Babylonian Exile. An additional, so-called Second Wall, was built by King Herod the Great. In 4144 CE, Agrippa, king of Judea, started building the so-called “Third Wall” around the northern suburbs. The entire city was totally destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE.

The northern part of the city was rebuilt by the Emperor Hadrian around 130, under the name Aelia Capitolina. In the Byzantine period Jerusalem was extended southwards and again enclosed by city walls.

Muslims occupied Byzantine Jerusalem in the 7th century (637 CE) under the second caliph, `Umar Ibn al-Khattab who annexed it to the Islamic Arab Empire. He granted its inhabitants an assurance treaty. After the siege of Jerusalem, Sophronius welcomed `Umar, allegedly because, according to biblical prophecies known to the Church in Jerusalem, “a poor, but just and powerful man” would rise to be a protector and ally to the Christians of Jerusalem. Sophronius believed that `Umar, a great warrior who led an austere life, was a fulfillment of this prophecy. In the account by the Patriarch of Alexandria, Eutychius, it is said that `Umar paid a visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and sat in its courtyard. When the time for prayer arrived, however, he left the church and prayed outside the compound, in order to avoid having future generations of Muslims use his prayer there as a pretext for converting the church into a mosque. Eutychius adds that `Umar also wrote a decree which he handed to the Patriarch, in which he prohibited Muslims gathering in prayer at the site.[11]

In 1099, Jerusalem was captured by the Western Christian army of the First Crusade and it remained in their hands until recaptured by the Arab Muslims, led by Saladin, on October 2, 1187. He summoned the Jews and permitted them to resettle in the city. In 1219, the walls of the city were razed by Mu’azzim Sultan of Damascus; in 1229, by treaty with Egypt, Jerusalem came into the hands of Frederick II of Germany. In 1239 he began to rebuild the walls, but they were demolished again by Da’ud, the emir of Kerak. In 1243, Jerusalem came again under the control of the Christians, and the walls were repaired. The Kharezmian Tatars took the city in 1244 and Sultan Malik al-Muazzam razed the walls, rendering it again defenseless and dealing a heavy blow to the city’s status.

The current walls of the Old City were built in 153542 by the Ottoman Turkish sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. The walls stretch for approximately 4.5km (2.8 miles), and rise to a height of between 5 and 15 metres (16.449ft), with a thickness of 3 metres (10 feet) at the base of the wall.[4] Altogether, the Old City walls contain 35 towers, most of which (15) are in the more exposed northern wall.[4] Suleiman’s wall had six gates, to which a seventh, the New Gate, was added in 1887; several other, older gates, have been walled up over the centuries. The Golden Gate was at first rebuilt and left open by Suleiman’s architects, only to be walled up a short while later. The New Gate was opened in the wall surrounding the Christian Quarter during the 19th century. Two secondary gates were reopened in recent times on the southeastern side of the city walls as a result of archaeological work.

In 1980, Jordan proposed that the Old City be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.[12] It was added to the List in 1981.[13] In 1982, Jordan requested that it be added to the List of World Heritage in Danger. The United States government opposed the request, noting that the Jordanian government had no standing to make such a nomination and that the consent of the Israeli government would be required since it effectively controlled Jerusalem.[14] In 2011, UNESCO issued a statement reiterating its view that East Jerusalem is “part of the occupied Palestinian territory, and that the status of Jerusalem must be resolved in permanent status negotiations.”[15]

In 2015, archaeologists uncovered the remnants of an impressive fort, built by Greeks in the center of old Jerusalem. It is believed that it is the remnants of the Acra fortress. The team also found coins that date from the time of Antiochus IV to the time of Antiochus VII. In addition, they found Greek arrowheads, slingshots, ballistic stones and amphorae.[16]

In the 1970s, while excavating the remains of the Nea Church (the New Church of the Theotokos), a Greek inscription was found. It reads: “This work too was donated by our most pious Emperor Flavius Justinian, through the provision and care of Constantine, most saintly priest and abbot, in the 13th year of the indiction.”[17][18] A second dedicatory inscription bearing the names of Emperor Justinian and of the same abbot of the Nea Church was discovered in 2017 among the ruins of a pilgrim hostel about a kilometre north of Damascus Gate, which proves the importance of the Nea complex at the time.[19][20]

The Muslim Quarter (Arabic: , Hrat al-Muslimn) is the largest and most populous of the four quarters and is situated in the northeastern corner of the Old City, extending from the Lions’ Gate in the east, along the northern wall of the Temple Mount in the south, to the Western Wall Damascus Gate route in the west. Its population was 22,000 in 2005. Like the other three quarters of the Old City, until the riots of 1929 the Muslim quarter had a mixed population of Muslims, Christians, and also Jews.[21] Today, there are “many Israeli settler homes” and “several yeshivas”, including Yeshivat Ateret Yerushalayim, in the Muslim Quarter.[5]

The Christian Quarter (Arabic: , rat an-Nara) is situated in the northwestern corner of the Old City, extending from the New Gate in the north, along the western wall of the Old City as far as the Jaffa Gate, along the Jaffa Gate Western Wall route in the south, bordering the Jewish and Armenian Quarters, as far as the Damascus Gate in the east, where it borders the Muslim Quarter. The quarter contains the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, viewed by many as Christianity’s holiest place.

The Armenian Quarter (Armenian: , Haygagan T’aamas, Arabic: , rat al-Arman) is the smallest of the four quarters of the Old City. Although the Armenians are Christian, the Armenian Quarter is distinct from the Christian Quarter. Despite the small size and population of this quarter, the Armenians and their Patriarchate remain staunchly independent and form a vigorous presence in the Old City. After the 1948 ArabIsraeli War, the four quarters of the city came under Jordanian control. Jordanian law required Armenians and other Christians to “give equal time to the Bible and Qur’an” in private Christian schools, and restricted the expansion of church assets.[citation needed] The 1967 war is remembered by residents of the quarter as a miracle, after two unexploded bombs were found inside the Armenian monastery. Today, more than 3,000 Armenians live in Jerusalem, 500 of them in the Armenian Quarter.[22][23] Some are temporary residents studying at the seminary or working as church functionaries. The Patriarchate owns the land in this quarter as well as valuable property in West Jerusalem and elsewhere. In 1975, a theological seminary was established in the Armenian Quarter. After the 1967 war, the Israeli government gave compensation for repairing any churches or holy sites damaged in the fighting, regardless of who caused the damage.[citation needed]

The Jewish Quarter (Hebrew: , HaRova HaYehudi, known colloquially to residents as HaRova, Arabic: , rat al-Yahd) lies in the southeastern sector of the walled city, and stretches from the Zion Gate in the south, bordering the Armenian Quarter on the west, along the Cardo to Chain Street in the north and extends east to the Western Wall and the Temple Mount. The quarter has a rich history, with several long periods of Jewish presence covering much of the time[dubious discuss] since the eighth century BCE.[24][25][26][27][28][29] In 1948, its population of about 2,000 Jews was besieged, and forced to leave en masse.[30] The quarter was completely sacked by Arab forces during the Battle for Jerusalem and ancient synagogues were destroyed.

The Jewish quarter remained under Jordanian control until its recapture by Israeli paratroopers in the Six-Day War of 1967. A few days later, Israeli authorities ordered the demolition of the adjacent Moroccan Quarter, forcibly relocating all of its inhabitants, in order to facilitate public access to the Western Wall.

The section of the Jewish quarter destroyed prior to 1967 has since been rebuilt and settled and has a population of 2,348 (as of 2005[update]).[31] Many large educational institutions have taken up residence. Before being rebuilt, the quarter was carefully excavated under the supervision of Hebrew University archaeologist Nahman Avigad. The archaeological remains are on display in a series of museums and outdoor parks, which tourists can visit by descending two or three stories beneath the level of the current city. The former Chief Rabbi is Rabbi Avigdor Nebenzahl, and the current Chief Rabbi is his son Rabbi Chizkiyahu Nebenzahl, who is on the faculty of Yeshivat Netiv Aryeh, which is situated directly across from the Kotel.

The quarter includes the “Karaites’ street” (Hebrew: , Rhehov Ha’karaim), on which the old Anan ben David Kenesa is located.[citation needed][32]

There was previously a small Moroccan quarter in the Old City. Within a week of the Six-Day War’s end, the Moroccan quarter was largely destroyed in order to give visitors better access to the Western Wall by creating the Western Wall plaza. The parts of the Moroccan Quarter that were not destroyed are now part of the Jewish Quarter. Simultaneously with the demolition, a new regulation was set into place by which the only access point for non-Muslims to the Temple Mount is through the Gate of the Moors, which is reached via the so-called Mughrabi Bridge.[33][34]

During different periods, the city walls followed different outlines and had a varying number of gates. During the era of the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem for instance, Jerusalem had four gates, one on each side. The current walls were built by Suleiman the Magnificent, who provided them with six gates; several older gates, which had been walled up before the arrival of the Ottomans, were left as they were. As to the previously sealed Golden Gate, Suleiman at first opened and rebuilt it, but then walled it up again as well. The number of operational gates increased to seven after the addition of the New Gate in 1887; a smaller eighth one, the Tanners’ Gate, has been opened for visitors after being discovered and unsealed during excavations in the 1990s. The sealed historic gates comprise four that are at least partially preserved (the double Golden Gate in the eastern wall, and the Single, Triple, and Double Gates in the southern wall), with several other gates discovered by archaeologists of which only traces remain (the Gate of the Essenes on Mount Zion, the gate of Herod’s royal palace south of the citadel, and the vague remains of what 19th-century explorers identified as the Gate of the Funerals (Bab al-Jana’iz) or of al-Buraq (Bab al-Buraq) south of the Golden Gate[35]).

Until 1887, each gate was closed before sunset and opened at sunrise. As indicated by the chart below, these gates have been known by a variety of names used in different historical periods and by different communities.
