1. Concerned Citizens for Academic Freedom at UCT

As concerned students, parents and alumni of the University of Cape Town, we are aware of the ongoing campaign calling for an academic boycott of Israeli institutions at UCT. With this in mind, we call upon UCT’s management and leadership to stand against this campaign. We believe that the implementation of a wholesale academic boycott against Israel violates the principles of academic freedom and freedom of speech, guaranteed in Section 16 of the South African Constitution and which are fundamental to the undertaking of education and research.

2. We demand JEWISH MOST OF ALL SOCIAL AND POLITICAL ORGANIZATIONS !!!

Theodore Herzl, in the hes Time, called the guaranteed Jewish majority as necessary condition for the creation of a Jewish state.

Since the Jewish majority in the Western Eretz Yisrael wich not guaranteed by law, it turns out that according to Herzl, we have not yet created the Jewish state, but - we do not even have the most crucial prerequisite for it.

Of course, we are not fanatics, for example, to call, as some European nationalists do, to the forced sterilization of muslim women, and already - suffering from violence in families. You will never hear it from us!!! Unless, in the form of their condemnation!

However, inaction to death is like!

Cases of neglect of the right of the Jewish state to exist and, accordingly, the right of the Jewish people to self-determination began to take the form of circular fun, in which even Knesset members consider it normal to take part in such provocations. Not to mention the activists of B'Tselem, V15, Shovrei-shtika and so on.

And this, - not only the desecration of the Independence Day, which for unknowing reason became part of everyday life. This is and provocative false interviews, denying the Holocaust, slandering the IDF, substituting for the insidious fabrication facts of our history. This is the same - and theft of classified information (we do not exclude, among other things, the connection with the frequent cases of theft of weapons and the last abduction of IDF soldiers).
WE DO NOT HAVE THE MENTAL RIGHT TO LEAVE CRIMINAL ELEMENTS IN THE AUTHORITY !!! And EVEN, if someone thinks that this is not just terrorists and not mafia, but only a group of risks ... !!!

As a solution to the problem, we propose - even, we might say - demand - LEGALLY GUARANTEE JEWISH MOST OF ALL SOCIAL AND POLITICAL ORGANIZATIONS.
This can be achieved by a legal requirement to all social and political movements, especially to political parties that have a list structure, as well as in the governing bodies of party movements, the Jewish majority. The Israeli parties and public organizations that do not have a Jewish majority should be banned, respectively.

It is important to note that, although this initiative is the direct opposite of the policy of discriminating Jews against the judiciary and government bodies;
All at the same time - the law does not deprive non-Jews of civil rights, incl. - and suffrage.

3. The Temple Mount Manifesto

Shockingly, every Israeli Government since 1967 has systemically denied the Jewish People of the right to pray and worship on the Temple Mount and Jews are routinely arrested and harassed for even attempting religious acts on the Mount. True, While Jews are allowed to visit the Mount 5 days a week, 4 hours a day, there are many restrictions.

This policy is in gross violation of Jewish and Democratic principles.

4. Allow non-Jewish, overseas volunteers to enlist in the IDF

There are ways that the IDF could allow foreign volunteers who pass simple background checks and have recommendations from synagogues or Jewish communities or from the Israeli consulates abroad to enlist into the IDF that would not harm the integrity of the IDF but actually add to its overall strength.

Hundreds, maybe even thousands of American Christians, atheists, and others who love the Jewish State and the Jewish People and want to serve the Jewish State alongside their Jewish brothers and sisters in the IDF.

5. Jewish Prayer on the Temple Mount Now!

Last week UNESCO held a truly infamous vote to de-Judaize Jerusalem and the Temple Mount and was quickly condemned by Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu by declaring UNESCO “The theater of the absurd”.

The truth is that the State of Israel set the stage for this vote long ago via its anti-Jewish policy on the Temple Mount. Jews who come to visit the Mount are harassed and Jews who are found praying or worshiping are arrested.

Should UNESCO and other international organizations be held to a higher standard than the Israeli Government?

6. Demand CBS apologizes and reports fairly

On February 3rd, 2016, at 2pm three terrorists armed with sub-machine guns, knives and bombs murdered a 19 year old women, Hadar Cohen and seriously wounded another. Security forces defended their lives and killed the heavily armed terrorists.

How was this reported by CBS News?

"3 Palestinians killed as daily violence grinds on"!

Enough is enough! The time has come to stop lying to the world and let people know the truth.

Biased antisemitic reporting gives sympathy to terrorists and murderers and may ultimately result in more innocent lives being lost!

7. Jewish Rights in the Land of Israel

The Myth of "Occupation":

1. The Jewish communities of Judea-Samaria and Eastern Jerusalem* are not located in an “occupied territory.” The last binding international legal instrument which divided the territory of Israel, Judea-Samaria and Eastern Jerusalem*was the League of Nations Mandate, which explicitly recognized the right of Jewish settlement in all territories allocated to the Jewish national home under the Balfour Declaration. These rights under the British Mandate were preserved by the successor organization to the League of Nations, the United Nations, under Article 80 in the UN Charter.

2. Until 1993 there was never in history a "Palestinian State" or autonomy of any kind. Meanwhile the Jews have re-established sovereignty for the third time in their history within the Land of Israel. It is therefore, natural for Jews to build homes and communities in these areas. Even in UN General Assembly Resolution 181, the terms "Palestinian State" or "Palestinians" does not appear a single time. Instead the term Arab State is used 20 times and the term Arabs is used 6 times throughout the text. Had the Arabs of the region in question considered themselves "Palestinian" in 1947, the text of Resolution 181 would have reflected that reality.

3. The territory of Judea-Samaria and Eastern Jerusalem* was liberated by Israel in a defensive war, which is a legal means to acquire territory under international law. In fact, Israel’s seizing the land in 1967 was the only legal acquisition of the territory this century. Although Israel did strike first, Egypt and her allies committed six violations which are known in legal law as “casus belli” or legal justification for war.

4. The Jordanian occupation of Judea-Samaria and Eastern Jerusalem* from 1947 to 1967, by contrast, had been the result of an offensive war in 1948 and was never recognized by the international community, including the Arab states, with the exception of Great Britain and Pakistan. This fact was admitted by Stephen Schwebel, who headed the International Court of Justice in The Hague in 1970.

*Judea and Samaria is known by the International Community as the "West Bank because the land is situated on the western side of the Jordan River.

8. Donald Trump Should Come to Israel!

After the firestorm that erupted over Donald Trumps comments on Arab immigration to the Unite States, extreme leftists in Israel used the opportunity to protest his visit.

Mr. Trump, should know that mainstream Israel supports his positions towards radical Islam and we to yearn from an uncompromising war on Islamic terror.

Please consider reading my open letter to Donald Trump to gain a deeper understanding of the Israeli-Arab conflict.

9. Grant citizenship to all members of the Hebrew Israelite Community!

We, the IDF Soldiers of the Hebrew Israelite Community in Israel, now call upon our Prime Minister and the Ministry of the Interior to give just and due recognition to the contributions of our Community to the welfare and protection of the State of Israel and grant us and our immediate families full citizenship.

We serve compulsory military service, some of us risking our lives for the well-being of the country we love. We are equal citizens on every battlefield and on any military mission [...and, just last year, we buried one of our young daughters serving in the IAF who lost her life on guard duty!] yet our parents and our families continue to be discriminated against daily. It is a biased citizenship. In other words, we are denied full equality in Israeli society. It should be emphasized that many of our family members have yet to even receive permanent residence! Even though we have lived, worked and paid our taxes in this country over the last 46 years, and have educated our sons and daughters to proudly serve the Nation, citizenship prevention challenges our lives and livelihoods.

Our existential insecurity and disenfranchisement is unfair and offensive, and contributes to much undue suffering and loss. The Jewish community has demonstrated that it is loyal and just to its law-abiding citizenry. The Hebrew Israelite Community continues to contribute to the State of Israel in every available field. We add to the charm of the manifold ethnic diversity of the Holy Land and Israel's special place in the family of World Nations. For years, this government has reassured our community that we will ‘eventually’ achieve equal citizenship. Now, after 46 years of peaceful community life in (as well as loyal service to) Eretz Yisrael, it is time for the State to fulfill its righteous promises on our behalf. In Yah Yisrael We Trust!

10. Urge Facebook to launch a peace sign profile picture filter

In light of recent events, Facebook made the decision to launch a profile picture filter of a French flag to allow people to support those affected by the attacks in Paris. The terrorist attacks that occurred in Paris were of course a tragedy, however, far more tragedies take place across the world due to terrorist attacks and acts of war that Facebook never launches filters for. For example, why wasn't there an option to apply a profile picture filter of the Lebanese flag a week ago when suicide bombings there killed dozens?

It could be suggested to Facebook to launch a countries flag as a filter any time a tragedy occurs in a country, but there is a much simpler solution: if the option was given to people to apply a profile picture filter of the well-known peace sign, this would allow people to support the global intolerance of violence/terrorism/acts of war and get behind not just one country, but the entire world in support of global peace.

Please sign the petition and share if you agree, thanks.

12. 1 Million for a Jewish Temple Mount!

Fact: The Temple Mount is the holiest Jewish site on earth.
Fact: The Temple Mount is the only place in Israel where Jews are arrested for praying or even holding religious symbols or holy objects.
Fact: The Temple Mount is under full Muslim control and Israeli Police takes dictates from the Muslim WAKF.
Fact: Muslims use the Temple Mount as a platform for anti-Jewish riots and propaganda.

Question 1: How can Israel claim to take a strong stance against terror when it allows Muslim fanatics to rule the Temple Mount?
Question 2: How can Israel claim to be a "Jewish and Democratic State" when it denies religious freedom to Jews on the Temple Mount?
Question 3: How can Israel protest Antisemitism worldwide when the Jewish State itself oppresses Jews on the Temple Mount.
Question 4: How can the Jewish State claim Jerusalem as its "Untied Capital" when the Jewish police force of Israel arrests Jews for praying on the holiest site in Jerusalem, the Temple Mount?

14. Petition to the UNSC: We demand that Arabs Stop destruction of Jewish Archeological Remains in Temple Mount

The Temple Mount in Jerusalem is to Jews as MECCA is to Islam. Jerusalem is the spiritual capital of Judaism. The spiritual capital of Islam is MECCA. Jews around the world pray facing Temple Mount. Muslims face MECCA even when in Jerusalem.

Arutz7: The Temple Mount is to Jews as Mecca is to Muslims
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/15915#.VYay6ZuD69B

"The Europeans claim that Temple Mount has to be in 'Palestine' because the Jewish Temple is no longer there while the Al-Aqsa Mosque is there now. This argument is wrong for three reasons:

1. There are more Muslims in Israel than in the 'West Bank', Israeli Arabs have the same claim to Al-Aqsa as 'West Bank' Arabs.

2. Israel preserves Muslim Holy sites while Arabs destroy Jewish Holy sites if given a chance. Israel has not destroyed Al-Aqsa or the Dome of the Rock from 1967 till now, 2014, under Israeli sovereignty. The Palestinians destroyed Joseph's Tomb and illegally excavated and destroyed Jewish Archaeological remains from Solomon's Temple and would destroy much more if given sovereignty.

3. The area of the Temple Mount is the holiest site for Judaism even without the Temple there.

The Al Aqsa mosque was built on top of the ruins of the Jewish Temple after the Arab conquest of Jerusalem in 709 CE.
The Temple Mount was the site where the two Jewish Temples were located. King David blessed the Temple Mount before King Solomon built the First Temple in 957 BCE. The First Temple was destroyed in 586 BCE by the Babylonians. The Second Temple was built in 538 BCE and destroyed in 70 CE by the Romans. The Al Aqsa mosque was built on top of the ruins of the Jewish Temple after the Arab conquest of Jerusalem in 709 CE.

This is an excerpt from Mark Twain's "The Innocents Abroad" describing his visit to the Mosque of Omar and the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem in 1867:

"Everywhere about the Mosque of Omar are portions of pillars, curiously wrought altars, and fragments of elegantly carved marble - the precious remains of Solomon's Temple...see the costly marbles that once adorned the inner Temple...the designs wrought upon these fragments are all quaint and peculiar...one meets with these venerable scraps at every turn, specially in the neighboring mosque Al Aqsa, into whose inner walls a very large number of them are carefully built for preservation. These pieces of stone, stained and dusty with age, dimly hint at a grandeur we have all been taught to regard as the princeliest ever seen on earth; and they call up pictures of a pageant that is familiar to all imaginations - camels laden with spices and treasure - beautiful slaves, presents for Solomon's harem - a long cavalcade of richly caparisoned beasts and warriors - and Sheba's Queen in the van of this prison of Oriental Magnificence. These elegant fragments bear a richer interest than the solemn vastness of the stones the Jews kiss in the place of wailing can ever have for the heedless sinner.

"Down in the hollow ground, underneath the olives and oranges trees that flourish in the court of the great mosque , is a wilderness of pillars - remains of the ancient Temple, they supported it. There are ponderous archways down there...we never dreamed we might see portions of the actual Temple of Solomon..."

Deliberate Destruction by the Waqf

The Jewish Temple was not only destroyed by the Romans 2000 years ago, it continues being destroyed by the Arabs today. If the Palestinians assume responsibility over the site they will have freedom to destroy much more.

Journalist Ilan Ben Zion reported in December 2012: "The Muslim authority managing the Temple Mount on Sunday dumped tons of unexamined earth and stones excavated from the holy site into a municipal dump, in violation of a High Court injunction, Maariv (Hebrew Daily, ed.) reported on Monday."

Israel’s top court in September 2004 prohibited removal of earth from the Temple Mount and ruled that, should it be necessary [to do so], the Antiquities Authority must be notified a month in advance so it may examine the earth for artifacts.

Jews regard the Temple Mount as their holiest site, where the First and Second Temple were located. Muslims call it the Noble Sanctuary and regard it as their third holiest site after Mecca and Medina. According to the existing arrangement, the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, or trust, administers the Temple Mount complex.

Despite the High Court of Justice’s ruling, the Waqf has reportedly removed large piles of dirt from the Temple Mount in recent years and dumped them in the valley east of the Old City walls, provoking an outcry from biblical archaeologists and Jewish groups.

Tzachi Dvira, the archaeologist managing the team that sifts through soil excavated from the Temple Mount, told Maariv that mounds of earth containing historic relics were carted off and dumped on Sunday without notification and before archaeologists could investigate them.

Police claimed the removal of the soil was coordinated in advance. Dvira, however, said there were no Antiquities Authority officials on site, and the one police officer monitoring the operation had no idea of its significance.

Dvira claimed Waqf workers exploited a permit for removing construction waste from renovations done at the al-Aqsa Mosque on the site, which also contains the Dome of the Rock, in order to cart off artifact-laden earth from the Temple Mount.

He stated that official oversight of earth removal from the Temple Mount has grown lax in recent years, and said that “the fact that no one has succeeded in stopping the Waqf’s destructive actions raises many doubts about the role of the government in this matter.”

Soil from the Temple Mount that had been removed by the Waqf to the Kidron Valley in recent years has yielded “tens of thousands of finds, including signet rings from the First Temple era, painted floor tiles from the Second Temple era, ancient gold coins, and horseshoe nails and arrowheads belonging to the Knights Templar, who stabled their horses in Solomon’s Stables,” Dvira said.

Suzanne Singer, a contributing editor to the Biblical Archeological Review reported about Palestinian destruction of Jewish Archaeological remains in Temple Mount in September 2000: "Large-scale illegal construction on the Temple Mount and wholesale dumping of earth in the nearby Kidron Valley resumed this spring..."

"... The Temple Mount is, of course, sacred to three great Western faiths and is part of the world’s cultural patrimony. Here may lie remnants from the time of the First Temple of Solomon, the Second Temple built by Herod, the Byzantine period and the early Islamic eras. Israeli excavations around the exterior of the Temple Mount since 1967 have found remains from all these periods, but the Mount itself has been terra incognita, protected by an understanding between Israel and the Waqf that says no construction will take place there...

" ...Last November, we reported that the Waqf, in the dead of night, had dumped hundreds of truckloads of earth from the Temple Mount into the Kidron Valley and municipal garbage dumps. About 6,000 tons of earth were removed ...Despite the flagrant disregard by the Waqf of the requirement for IAA supervision, there was no serious response by Israeli authorities. Today the dumped earth is unprotected and is being covered with garbage, making it unlikely that the IAA will ever act on its announced intention to salvage artifacts by sifting through the piles."

"...This spring and early summer, trucks and tractors returned to the Temple Mount, bringing building materials in and carting earth away through the Lions’ Gate, just north of the Temple Mount. For 200 yards along the inside of the Temple Mount’s eastern wall, from the al-Marawani Mosque’s new entrance to somewhat south of the Golden Gate, lie stacks of paving stones, scaffolding, wood and iron materials, along with large architectural fragments, such as pieces of ancient columns...

" ...The construction on the Temple Mount is only the latest, albeit perhaps the most egregious, example of the Waqf’s disregard for the protection of antiquities. In 1993 Israel’s Supreme Court found that the Waqf had violated the country’s antiquities laws no less than 35 times, with many of the violations causing the irreversible destruction of archaeological remains.

" ...Due to Prime Minister Barak’s concern for negotiations with the Palestinians, no effective archaeological oversight is taking place on the Temple Mount. No one halts the work so that potential damage can be assessed and prevented; as a result, heavy equipment is free to move about the Mount for projects that are neither approved nor supervised. The frequently heard view is that a tough stance by Israel will enflame the Palestinians and set back the peace talks..."


While Israel preserves Al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock, Arabs have proven that they cannot be trusted to respect Jewish Holy sites.
While Israel preserves Al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock, Arabs have proven that they cannot be trusted to respect Jewish Holy sites. In 2000 the Palestinians destroyed Joseph's tomb.

Sidney Brounstein wrote for the Los Angeles Times "Oct. 8: Where is the outrage? Imagine what would have happened if Jewish police stood by and allowed a Jewish mob to destroy a Muslim holy place! Does the destruction of a Jewish holy place by an Arab mob while Palestinian police stand by (after promising to protect it) deserve no more than inclusion in a list of other damage done by rioters? Is this an acceptance of attacks on Jews and things Jewish as a normal part of life?"

"It makes a mockery of any thought of giving Arabs any control of Jewish holy places. The destruction of dozens of such places in the Old City of Jerusalem from 1948 to 1967, along with the exclusion of Jews entirely from their most holy site, the Western Wall, was clearly of a piece with the current destruction."


The Temple Mount Area Has Always Been Holy to Jews

The Temple Mount was holy to the Jews even before the Temples existed because there is a special connection with God at the site:
● According to the Torah (Bereshit [Genesis] 22:1-14), God told Abraham to bring his son, Isaac, and offer him as a sacrifice there.
● It was also at Temple Mount that Ya'akov (Jacob) had his famous dream where he saw angels going and coming from heaven on a ladder.

"Ya'akov was fleeing from his brother Esau. Ya'akov left Be'er Sheva and went towards Charan. He came across the place and spent the night there because the sun had set. He took some of the stones of the place and placed them around his head, and he lay down to sleep in that place.

"He dreamt, and - look! - a ladder was wedged in the ground and its top reached to heaven, and - look!- angels of God were going up and down on it.

"Suddenly, God was standing over him, and He said, "I am God, the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac. I will give to you and to your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be as the dust of the earth, and you will be strong to the west, to the east, to the north, to the south. All the families of the earth will be blessed through you and your descendants. Look, I am with you, and I will guard you wherever you go. I will bring you back to this land, for I will not abandon you until I have carried out what I have spoken for you.""

"Ya'akov woke up from his sleep and he said. 'God is truly in this place, and I didn't realize.'
He felt frightened. He said, 'How awesome this place is! This is none other than the house of God, this is the Gate of Heaven.

"Ya'akov arose early in the morning. He took the stone that he had placed at his head, set it up as a monument, and poured oil on top of it... Ya'akov made a vow saying 'If God will be with me and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat and clothing to wear, so that I come again to my father's house in peace, then God shall be my God, and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be God's house'." (Bereshit 28:20-22)

● While the Jewish Temples existed it was believed that the Schechina (God's Presence) rested in the Holy of Holies, the part of the Temple where the Holy Ark (with Moses' tablets) was. Now that the Temple is no longer in place, even with the Mosque there, Temple Mount continues being the Holiest Site for Judaism, a place where God's presence is closer.

The Europeans believe that because the Jewish Temple was destroyed and there is a Mosque on the Temple Mount, the Palestinians have a stronger claim to the site: This shows a great ignorance about Judaism. Jews around the world face the Temple Mount when they pray. Muslims face Mecca even when they pray on or near the Temple Mount.

Even without the Temple, the Temple Mount is the Holiest Site for Judaism. The Holiest site for Islam is the Ka'ba in Mecca. Taking away Temple Mount from the Jews would be like taking the Ka'ba in Mecca from the Arabs.

One of Maimonides 13 principles of the Jewish faith, for which Jews pray three times a day, is the belief in the resurrection of the death and the coming of Messiah, the descendant of King David. When Messiah comes, the Temple will be rebuilt - on the Temple Mount."

Desecration of the Ancient Jewish Cemetery of Mount of Olives

Jews used to live in East Jerusalem until they were expelled by the Jordanian Arab Legion in 1948. In 1948 British General Glubb Pasha lead the Jordanian Arab Legion to expel all the Jews from Hebron, Jerusalem and the West Bank. Not only they did ethnic cleansing but they destroyed dozens of ancient synagogues and 60,000 Ancient Jewish Tombstones in the Sacred Ancient Jewish Cemetery of Mount of Olives to try to erase all evidence of Jewish History in the West Bank. (In 1956, after his service in Jordan, General Glubb, responsible for ethnic cleansing of Jews and destruction for thousands of ancient Jewish tombs in East Jerusalem, was appointed Knight Commander of The Order of Bath by Queen Elizabeth.)

After the Jordanian Arab Legion expelled Jews from East Jerusalem, between 1948 and 1967, 60,000 tombstones in the Mount of Olives Cemetery, the Jewish most ancient cemetery, were desecrated and destroyed, dozens of synagogues were razed, the western wall was converted into a stable.

https://harhazeisim.org/history
"In the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Jordan occupied East Jerusalem, including the Mount of Olives, and held it until the 1967 Arab-Israeli War. During this period, Jordan annexed its part of the city, but this was recognized only by the United Kingdom and Pakistan. Jordan had obligated itself within the framework of the 3 April 1949 Armistice Agreement to allow “free access to the holy sites and cultural institutions and use of the cemeteries on the Mount of Olives,” but it did not honor this obligation.

By the end of 1949, and throughout the Jordanian occupation of the site, Arab residents uprooted tombstones and plowed the land in the cemeteries, while skeletons and bones were strewn about and scattered. An estimated 38,000 tombstones were smashed or damaged in total. Jewish tombstones from the Mount, both ancient and new, were used by the Jordanians for various purposes, including flooring for latrines and paving stones for roads. During this period, four roads were paved through the cemeteries, in the process destroying graves including those of famous persons. Buildings, including the Intercontinental Hotel and a gas station, were erected on top of ancient graves."


Below is an article that describes how Arabs recently built a Mosque next to Mount of Olives

https://harhazeisim.org/eyewitnesses-vandals-still-plague-mt-of-olives-cemetery

Muslim Arab vandals continue to desecrate the tombs at the Mount of Olives cemetery on Jerusalem, despite the supposedly heightened security presence there, according to eye witnesses.

Participants in a funeral procession that took place at the ancient Jewish cemetery at week’s end said that they saw a significant number of recently vandalized tombs at the site. “It appeared that the tombstones had been vandalized in an ugly, anti-Semitic fashion,” they told police later..."

Arutz7: The Colonialist Crimes of Islam
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/16050#.VHZjC5t0xf0

There are 57 MUSLIM NATIONS but ONLY ONE JEWISH STATE (smaller than NEW JERSEY). The two state solution will lead to the DESTRUCTION of the only small Jewish State. The TWO State Solution is actually a ONE State Solution because it will not require the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish State. Once the Arabs get their State in the West Bank they will attack Israel from the West Bank as they do from Gaza. Obama's TWO State Solution is actually a ONE State Solution because it will lead to Israel's destruction.

The Palestinian Media Watch translated an interview by one of Hamas founders Mahmoud al-Zahar to the Palestinian newspaper Al-Ayyam in which he said “transfer what it has [in Gaza] or just a small part of it to the West Bank, we would be able to settle the battle of the 'final promise [to destroy Israel] with a speed that no one can imagine...[Some] have said Hamas wants to create an Islamic emirate in Gaza. We won’t do that, but we will build an Islamic state in Palestine, all of Palestine...”

The only possible solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict is to recognize that THE PALESTINIANS ALREADY HAVE A STATE IN JORDAN. Since the US/EU claim the Arab-Israeli conflict can be solved though a UNSC resolution why not submit one declaring that JORDAN IS PALESTINE?

Jordan was created in land from British Mandate Palestine, most of the Jordanian population is Palestinian, the previous King said "Jordan is Palestine, Palestine is Jordan". The Queen of Jordan Rania Al-Yassin was born in Kuwait to Palestinian parents Faisal Sedki Al Yassin and Ilham Yassin from Tulkarm, Jordan has a Palestinian Queen! The next King of Jordan will be the son of a Palestinian.The Arabs currently living in Israel can continue but they will be Jordanian Citizens."

15. Denounce anti-semitism in the UN: 7.5 million Chinese settlers in Tibet. 21 anti-Israel resolutions in 2013, ZERO anti-China resolutions

According to the UN Watch "The U.N. General Assembly in 2013 adopted a total of 21 resolutions singling out Israel for criticism — and 4 resolutions on the rest of the world combined. See the texts and votes below.

The four that do not concern Israel are: one on Syria, a regime that has murdered 120,000 of its own people, and one each on Iran, North Korea and Myanmar.

There were zero UNGA resolutions on gross and systematic abuses committed by China, Cuba, Egypt, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Zimbabwe, nor on many other major perpetrators of grave violations of human rights."

http://blog.unwatch.org/index.php/2013/11/25/this-years-22-unga-resolutions-against-israel-4-on-rest-of-world/

The Dalai Lama demands the removal of 7.5 MILLION CHINESE SETTLERS FROM TIBET. Will there be a UNSC resolution giving CHINA a timeline to withdraw ALL the CHINESE SETTLERS from TIBET?

In his 5 point peace plan the Dalai Lama called to stop Chinese colonization of Tibet.

"Human rights violations in Tibet are among the most serious in the world. Discrimination is practiced in Tibet under a policy of "apartheid" which the Chinese call "segregation and assimilation". Tibetans are, at best, second class citizens in their own country. Deprived of all basic democratic rights and freedoms, they exist under a colonial administration in which all real power is wielded by Chinese officials of the Communist Party and the army.

Although the Chinese government allows Tibetans to rebuild some Buddhist monasteries and to worship in them, it still forbids serious study and teaching of religion. Only a small number of people, approved by the Communist Party, are permitted to join the monasteries.

While Tibetans in exile exercise their democratic rights under a constitution promulgated by me in 1963, thousands of our countrymen suffer in prisons and labour camps in Tibet for their religious or political convictions...

The massive transfer of Chinese civilians into Tibet in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention (1949), threatens the very existence of the Tibetans as a distinct people. In the eastern parts of our country, the Chinese now greatly outnumber Tibetans. In the Amdo province, for example, where I was born, there are, according to the Chinese statistics, 2.5 million Chinese and only 750,000 Tibetans. Even in the so-called Tibet Autonomous Region (i.e., central and western Tibet), Chinese government sources now confirm that Chinese outnumber Tibetans.

The Chinese population transfer policy is not new. It has been systematically applied to other areas before. Earlier in this century, the Manchus were a distinct race with their own culture and traditions. Today only two to three million Manchurians are left in Manchuria, where 75 million Chinese have settled. In Eastern Turkestan, which the Chinese now call Sinkiang, the Chinese population has grown from 200,000 in 1949 to 7 million, more than half of the total population of 13 million. In the wake of the Chinese colonization of Inner Mongolia, Chinese number 8.5 million, Mongols 2.5 million.

Today, in the whole of Tibet 7.5 million Chinese settlers have already been sent, outnumbering the Tibetan population of 6 million. In central and western Tibet, now referred to by the Chinese as the "Tibet Autonomous Region", Chinese sources admit the 1.9 million Tibetans already constitute a minority of the region's population. These numbers do not take the estimated 300,000-500,000 troops in Tibet into account - 250,000 of them in so-called Tibet Autonomous Region.

For the Tibetans to survive as a people, it is imperative that the population transfer is stopped and Chinese settlers return to China. Otherwise, Tibetans will soon be no more than a tourist attraction and relic of a noble past. "

NOTE ON HOW JORDAN EXPELLED THE JEWS FROM THE WEST BANK IN 1948

The McMahon-Hussein correspondence (1915) reveals details of a secret deal between Sir Henry McMahon, High Commissioner of the UK in Egypt, and the Sharif of Mecca, Hussain Bin Ali, by which the British would give control of lands captured from the Ottoman Empire to the Arabs (Palestine was included within the boundaries that were proposed by Hussein) if the Arabs assisted the British in fighting the Turks during WWI.

In 1921 the UK created the Emirate of Transjordan (Jordan) in the land of Mandatory Palestine East from the Jordan river and appointed Abdullah, son of the Shariff of Mecca, as King of Jordan. (Brittain also appointed Abdullah's brother Faisal as King of Iraq). Jordan was officially under British Mandate Palestine and obtained independence in 1946.

In 1948 when the British Mandate of Palestine finished and the Jewish State of Israel was created, Iraq, Jordan and Egypt (all puppet Kingdoms from the UK) attacked the newborn Jewish State. Most of the officers of the Jordanian Arab Legion were British:

Command (under General Glubb),

Divisional Headquarters (under Brigadier Lash), Artillery Batteries/troops (under Lt-Col Hearst),

1st Brigade (under Col. Goldie),

1st Regiment (under Lt-Col. Blackden),

3rd Regiment (under Lt-Col Newman),

3rd Brigade (under Col. Ashton),

2nd Regiment (under Maj. Slade)

In 1948 British General Glubb Pasha lead the Jordanian Arab Legion commanded mostly by British Officers to expel all the Jews from Hebron, East Jerusalem and the West Bank. Not only they did ethnic cleansing but they destroyed dozens of ancient synagogues and 60,000 Ancient Jewish Tombstones in the Sacred Ancient Jewish Cemetery of Mount of Olives to try to erase all evidence of Jewish History in the West Bank. In 1956, after his service in Jordan, General Glubb, responsible for ethnic cleansing of Jews, was knighted by the Queen. General Glubb was appointed Knight Commander of The Order of Bath by Queen Elizabeth.

16. Return Jewish Holy Sites To The Jews

The same way that today GERMANS APOLOGIZE for the crimes of the NAZIS.
The same way that today SPAIN APOLOGIZES for the INQUISITION.
IT IS TIME FOR THE MUSLIMS TO APOLOGIZE FOR THE CRIMES OF ISLAM and RETURN STOLEN JEWISH HOLY SITES to the JEWS.

The Temple Mount in Jerusalem is to Jews as MECCA is to Islam. Jerusalem is the spiritual capital of Judaism. The spiritual capital of Islam is MECCA. Jews around the world pray facing Temple Mount. Muslims face MECCA even when in Jerusalem.

Arutz7: The Colonialist Crimes of Islam
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/16050#.VHZjC5t0xf0

"Below is a list of non-Muslim Holy Sites, sites stolen by Islamic armies:

1. Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Holiest site for Judaism. Site of the two Jewish Temples. The Muslims built two mosques there, adding the legend that Mohammed tied his horse to a post there.

2. Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron. The Jewish Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are undeniably buried there. The Muslims built a mosque there...

3. There are 2000 Hindu Temples in India that were converted to mosques. During the reign of Aurangzeb, tens of thousands of temples were desecrated: their facades and interiors were defaced and their divine images looted. In many cases, temples were destroyed entirely; in numerous instances mosques were built on their foundations, sometimes using the same stones. Among the temples Aurangzeb destroyed were two that are most sacred to Hindus, in Varanasi and Mathura. In both cases, he had large mosques built on the sites.

4. The Babri Mosque in Ayodhya (North India) was built on the site of a Hindu Temple. In 1992 a mob of 150,000 Hindus razed the mosque. Nobel Laureate writer V. S. Naipaul has praised the act for "reclaiming India's Hindu heritage".

5. The great temple of Keshava Rai at Mathura was one of the most magnificent hindu temples ever built in India. The Temple was demolished in 1670 and on its site a mosque was built.

6. The Somnath Temple in India: destroyed by Muslim invaders and converted into a mosque. In AD 1025, Mahmud destroyed and looted the temple, killing over 50,000 people who tried to defend it. After independence, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel pledged on November 13, 1947, that the temple would be reconstructed. The mosque was not destroyed but carefully relocated. In 1951 Dr. Rajendra Prasad performed the consecration ceremony. The temple construction was completed on December 1, 1995. The then President of India, Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma, dedicated it to the nation."

7. Kashi or Varanasi is the most sacred site in Hinduism and the worship of Lord Shiva as Vishveshvara goes back to ancient times. The temple was demolished several times by Muslim invaders, and was reconstructed again and again by Hindu kings. A mosque was built which still stands.

8. A surge in church-mosque conversion followed the 1974 Turkish Invasion of Cyprus. Many of the Orthodox churches in Northern Cyprus have been converted to mosques.

9. Hundreds of Greek Orthodox churches in Turkey were converted into mosques. Hagia Sophia, the seat of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, was converted into a mosque, and then, in order not to return it to the Christians, into a museum where until today Christians are forbidden to pray.

10. The Assyrian International News Agency published a list of Christian Institutions converted into mosques or destroyed by ISIS in Mosul, Iraq in 2014.

"Since taking over Mosul on June 10, ISIS has destroyed, occupied, converted to mosques, converted to ISIS headquarters or shuttered all 45 Christian institutions in Mosul. The following is the complete list of the Christian institutions in Mosul, grouped by denomination.

There are 57 MUSLIM NATIONS but ONLY ONE JEWISH STATE (smaller than NEW JERSEY). The two state solution will lead to the DESTRUCTION of the only small Jewish State. The TWO State Solution is actually a ONE State Solution because it will not require the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish State. Once the Arabs get their State in the West Bank they will attack Israel from the West Bank as they do from Gaza. Obama's TWO State Solution is actually a ONE State Solution because it will lead to Israel's destruction.

The Palestinian Media Watch translated an interview by one of Hamas founders Mahmoud al-Zahar to the Palestinian newspaper Al-Ayyam in which he said “transfer what it has [in Gaza] or just a small part of it to the West Bank, we would be able to settle the battle of the 'final promise [to destroy Israel] with a speed that no one can imagine...[Some] have said Hamas wants to create an Islamic emirate in Gaza. We won’t do that, but we will build an Islamic state in Palestine, all of Palestine...”

The only possible solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict is to recognize that THE PALESTINIANS ALREADY HAVE A STATE IN JORDAN. Since the US/EU claim the Arab-Israeli conflict can be solved though a UNSC resolution why not submit one declaring that JORDAN IS PALESTINE?

Jordan was created in land from British Mandate Palestine, most of the Jordanian population is Palestinian, the previous King said "Jordan is Palestine, Palestine is Jordan". The Queen of Jordan Rania Al-Yassin was born in Kuwait to Palestinian parents Faisal Sedki Al Yassin and Ilham Yassin from Tulkarm, Jordan has a Palestinian Queen! The next King of Jordan will be the son of a Palestinian.The Arabs currently living in Israel can continue but they will be Jordanian Citizens."

Arutz7: The Temple Mount is to Jews as Mecca is to Muslims
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/15915#.VYay6ZuD69B

"The Europeans claim that Temple Mount has to be in 'Palestine' because the Jewish Temple is no longer there while the Al-Aqsa Mosque is there now. This argument is wrong for three reasons:

1. There are more Muslims in Israel than in the 'West Bank', Israeli Arabs have the same claim to Al-Aqsa as 'West Bank' Arabs.

2. Israel preserves Muslim Holy sites while Arabs destroy Jewish Holy sites if given a chance. Israel has not destroyed Al-Aqsa or the Dome of the Rock from 1967 till now, 2014, under Israeli sovereignty. The Palestinians destroyed Joseph's Tomb and illegally excavated and destroyed Jewish Archaeological remains from Solomon's Temple and would destroy much more if given sovereignty.

3. The area of the Temple Mount is the holiest site for Judaism even without the Temple there.

The Al Aqsa mosque was built on top of the ruins of the Jewish Temple after the Arab conquest of Jerusalem in 709 CE.
The Temple Mount was the site where the two Jewish Temples were located. King David blessed the Temple Mount before King Solomon built the First Temple in 957 BCE. The First Temple was destroyed in 586 BCE by the Babylonians. The Second Temple was built in 538 BCE and destroyed in 70 CE by the Romans. The Al Aqsa mosque was built on top of the ruins of the Jewish Temple after the Arab conquest of Jerusalem in 709 CE.

This is an excerpt from Mark Twain's "The Innocents Abroad" describing his visit to the Mosque of Omar and the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem in 1867:

"Everywhere about the Mosque of Omar are portions of pillars, curiously wrought altars, and fragments of elegantly carved marble - the precious remains of Solomon's Temple...see the costly marbles that once adorned the inner Temple...the designs wrought upon these fragments are all quaint and peculiar...one meets with these venerable scraps at every turn, specially in the neighboring mosque Al Aqsa, into whose inner walls a very large number of them are carefully built for preservation. These pieces of stone, stained and dusty with age, dimly hint at a grandeur we have all been taught to regard as the princeliest ever seen on earth; and they call up pictures of a pageant that is familiar to all imaginations - camels laden with spices and treasure - beautiful slaves, presents for Solomon's harem - a long cavalcade of richly caparisoned beasts and warriors - and Sheba's Queen in the van of this prison of Oriental Magnificence. These elegant fragments bear a richer interest than the solemn vastness of the stones the Jews kiss in the place of wailing can ever have for the heedless sinner.

"Down in the hollow ground, underneath the olives and oranges trees that flourish in the court of the great mosque , is a wilderness of pillars - remains of the ancient Temple, they supported it. There are ponderous archways down there...we never dreamed we might see portions of the actual Temple of Solomon..."

Deliberate Destruction by the Waqf

The Jewish Temple was not only destroyed by the Romans 2000 years ago, it continues being destroyed by the Arabs today. If the Palestinians assume responsibility over the site they will have freedom to destroy much more.

Journalist Ilan Ben Zion reported in December 2012: "The Muslim authority managing the Temple Mount on Sunday dumped tons of unexamined earth and stones excavated from the holy site into a municipal dump, in violation of a High Court injunction, Maariv (Hebrew Daily, ed.) reported on Monday."

Israel’s top court in September 2004 prohibited removal of earth from the Temple Mount and ruled that, should it be necessary [to do so], the Antiquities Authority must be notified a month in advance so it may examine the earth for artifacts.

Jews regard the Temple Mount as their holiest site, where the First and Second Temple were located. Muslims call it the Noble Sanctuary and regard it as their third holiest site after Mecca and Medina. According to the existing arrangement, the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, or trust, administers the Temple Mount complex.

Despite the High Court of Justice’s ruling, the Waqf has reportedly removed large piles of dirt from the Temple Mount in recent years and dumped them in the valley east of the Old City walls, provoking an outcry from biblical archaeologists and Jewish groups.

Tzachi Dvira, the archaeologist managing the team that sifts through soil excavated from the Temple Mount, told Maariv that mounds of earth containing historic relics were carted off and dumped on Sunday without notification and before archaeologists could investigate them.

Police claimed the removal of the soil was coordinated in advance. Dvira, however, said there were no Antiquities Authority officials on site, and the one police officer monitoring the operation had no idea of its significance.

Dvira claimed Waqf workers exploited a permit for removing construction waste from renovations done at the al-Aqsa Mosque on the site, which also contains the Dome of the Rock, in order to cart off artifact-laden earth from the Temple Mount.

He stated that official oversight of earth removal from the Temple Mount has grown lax in recent years, and said that “the fact that no one has succeeded in stopping the Waqf’s destructive actions raises many doubts about the role of the government in this matter.”

Soil from the Temple Mount that had been removed by the Waqf to the Kidron Valley in recent years has yielded “tens of thousands of finds, including signet rings from the First Temple era, painted floor tiles from the Second Temple era, ancient gold coins, and horseshoe nails and arrowheads belonging to the Knights Templar, who stabled their horses in Solomon’s Stables,” Dvira said.

Suzanne Singer, a contributing editor to the Biblical Archeological Review reported about Palestinian destruction of Jewish Archaeological remains in Temple Mount in September 2000: "Large-scale illegal construction on the Temple Mount and wholesale dumping of earth in the nearby Kidron Valley resumed this spring..."

"... The Temple Mount is, of course, sacred to three great Western faiths and is part of the world’s cultural patrimony. Here may lie remnants from the time of the First Temple of Solomon, the Second Temple built by Herod, the Byzantine period and the early Islamic eras. Israeli excavations around the exterior of the Temple Mount since 1967 have found remains from all these periods, but the Mount itself has been terra incognita, protected by an understanding between Israel and the Waqf that says no construction will take place there...

" ...Last November, we reported that the Waqf, in the dead of night, had dumped hundreds of truckloads of earth from the Temple Mount into the Kidron Valley and municipal garbage dumps. About 6,000 tons of earth were removed ...Despite the flagrant disregard by the Waqf of the requirement for IAA supervision, there was no serious response by Israeli authorities. Today the dumped earth is unprotected and is being covered with garbage, making it unlikely that the IAA will ever act on its announced intention to salvage artifacts by sifting through the piles."

"...This spring and early summer, trucks and tractors returned to the Temple Mount, bringing building materials in and carting earth away through the Lions’ Gate, just north of the Temple Mount. For 200 yards along the inside of the Temple Mount’s eastern wall, from the al-Marawani Mosque’s new entrance to somewhat south of the Golden Gate, lie stacks of paving stones, scaffolding, wood and iron materials, along with large architectural fragments, such as pieces of ancient columns...

" ...The construction on the Temple Mount is only the latest, albeit perhaps the most egregious, example of the Waqf’s disregard for the protection of antiquities. In 1993 Israel’s Supreme Court found that the Waqf had violated the country’s antiquities laws no less than 35 times, with many of the violations causing the irreversible destruction of archaeological remains.

" ...Due to Prime Minister Barak’s concern for negotiations with the Palestinians, no effective archaeological oversight is taking place on the Temple Mount. No one halts the work so that potential damage can be assessed and prevented; as a result, heavy equipment is free to move about the Mount for projects that are neither approved nor supervised. The frequently heard view is that a tough stance by Israel will enflame the Palestinians and set back the peace talks..."


While Israel preserves Al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock, Arabs have proven that they cannot be trusted to respect Jewish Holy sites.
While Israel preserves Al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock, Arabs have proven that they cannot be trusted to respect Jewish Holy sites. In 2000 the Palestinians destroyed Joseph's tomb.

Sidney Brounstein wrote for the Los Angeles Times "Oct. 8: Where is the outrage? Imagine what would have happened if Jewish police stood by and allowed a Jewish mob to destroy a Muslim holy place! Does the destruction of a Jewish holy place by an Arab mob while Palestinian police stand by (after promising to protect it) deserve no more than inclusion in a list of other damage done by rioters? Is this an acceptance of attacks on Jews and things Jewish as a normal part of life?"

"It makes a mockery of any thought of giving Arabs any control of Jewish holy places. The destruction of dozens of such places in the Old City of Jerusalem from 1948 to 1967, along with the exclusion of Jews entirely from their most holy site, the Western Wall, was clearly of a piece with the current destruction."


The Temple Mount Area Has Always Been Holy to Jews

The Temple Mount was holy to the Jews even before the Temples existed because there is a special connection with God at the site:
● According to the Torah (Bereshit [Genesis] 22:1-14), God told Abraham to bring his son, Isaac, and offer him as a sacrifice there.
● It was also at Temple Mount that Ya'akov (Jacob) had his famous dream where he saw angels going and coming from heaven on a ladder.

"Ya'akov was fleeing from his brother Esau. Ya'akov left Be'er Sheva and went towards Charan. He came across the place and spent the night there because the sun had set. He took some of the stones of the place and placed them around his head, and he lay down to sleep in that place.

"He dreamt, and - look! - a ladder was wedged in the ground and its top reached to heaven, and - look!- angels of God were going up and down on it.

"Suddenly, God was standing over him, and He said, "I am God, the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac. I will give to you and to your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be as the dust of the earth, and you will be strong to the west, to the east, to the north, to the south. All the families of the earth will be blessed through you and your descendants. Look, I am with you, and I will guard you wherever you go. I will bring you back to this land, for I will not abandon you until I have carried out what I have spoken for you.""

"Ya'akov woke up from his sleep and he said. 'God is truly in this place, and I didn't realize.'
He felt frightened. He said, 'How awesome this place is! This is none other than the house of God, this is the Gate of Heaven.

"Ya'akov arose early in the morning. He took the stone that he had placed at his head, set it up as a monument, and poured oil on top of it... Ya'akov made a vow saying 'If God will be with me and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat and clothing to wear, so that I come again to my father's house in peace, then God shall be my God, and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be God's house'." (Bereshit 28:20-22)

● While the Jewish Temples existed it was believed that the Schechina (God's Presence) rested in the Holy of Holies, the part of the Temple where the Holy Ark (with Moses' tablets) was. Now that the Temple is no longer in place, even with the Mosque there, Temple Mount continues being the Holiest Site for Judaism, a place where God's presence is closer.

The Europeans believe that because the Jewish Temple was destroyed and there is a Mosque on the Temple Mount, the Palestinians have a stronger claim to the site: This shows a great ignorance about Judaism. Jews around the world face the Temple Mount when they pray. Muslims face Mecca even when they pray on or near the Temple Mount.

Even without the Temple, the Temple Mount is the Holiest Site for Judaism. The Holiest site for Islam is the Ka'ba in Mecca. Taking away Temple Mount from the Jews would be like taking the Ka'ba in Mecca from the Arabs.

One of Maimonides 13 principles of the Jewish faith, for which Jews pray three times a day, is the belief in the resurrection of the death and the coming of Messiah, the descendant of King David. When Messiah comes, the Temple will be rebuilt - on the Temple Mount."

Desecration of the Ancient Jewish Cemetery of Mount of Olives

Jews used to live in East Jerusalem until they were expelled by the Jordanian Arab Legion in 1948. In 1948 British General Glubb Pasha lead the Jordanian Arab Legion to expel all the Jews from Hebron, Jerusalem and the West Bank. Not only they did ethnic cleansing but they destroyed dozens of ancient synagogues and 60,000 Ancient Jewish Tombstones in the Sacred Ancient Jewish Cemetery of Mount of Olives to try to erase all evidence of Jewish History in the West Bank. (In 1956, after his service in Jordan, General Glubb, responsible for ethnic cleansing of Jews and destruction for thousands of ancient Jewish tombs in East Jerusalem, was appointed Knight Commander of The Order of Bath by Queen Elizabeth.)

After the Jordanian Arab Legion expelled Jews from East Jerusalem, between 1948 and 1967, 60,000 tombstones in the Mount of Olives Cemetery, the Jewish most ancient cemetery, were desecrated and destroyed, dozens of synagogues were razed, the western wall was converted into a stable.

https://harhazeisim.org/history
"In the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Jordan occupied East Jerusalem, including the Mount of Olives, and held it until the 1967 Arab-Israeli War. During this period, Jordan annexed its part of the city, but this was recognized only by the United Kingdom and Pakistan. Jordan had obligated itself within the framework of the 3 April 1949 Armistice Agreement to allow “free access to the holy sites and cultural institutions and use of the cemeteries on the Mount of Olives,” but it did not honor this obligation.

By the end of 1949, and throughout the Jordanian occupation of the site, Arab residents uprooted tombstones and plowed the land in the cemeteries, while skeletons and bones were strewn about and scattered. An estimated 38,000 tombstones were smashed or damaged in total. Jewish tombstones from the Mount, both ancient and new, were used by the Jordanians for various purposes, including flooring for latrines and paving stones for roads. During this period, four roads were paved through the cemeteries, in the process destroying graves including those of famous persons. Buildings, including the Intercontinental Hotel and a gas station, were erected on top of ancient graves."


Below is an article that describes how Arabs recently built a Mosque next to Mount of Olives

https://harhazeisim.org/eyewitnesses-vandals-still-plague-mt-of-olives-cemetery

Muslim Arab vandals continue to desecrate the tombs at the Mount of Olives cemetery on Jerusalem, despite the supposedly heightened security presence there, according to eye witnesses.

Participants in a funeral procession that took place at the ancient Jewish cemetery at week’s end said that they saw a significant number of recently vandalized tombs at the site. “It appeared that the tombstones had been vandalized in an ugly, anti-Semitic fashion,” they told police later..."

17. Declare Jordan to be Palestine

The Temple Mount in Jerusalem is to Jews as Mecca is to Islam. Jerusalem is the spiritual capital of Judaism. The spiritual capital of Islam is Mecca. Jews around the world pray facing Temple Mount. Muslims face Mecca even when in Jerusalem.

There are 57 MUSLIM NATIONS but ONLY ONE JEWISH STATE (smaller than NEW JERSEY). The two state solution will lead to the DESTRUCTION of the only small Jewish State. The TWO State Solution is actually a ONE State Solution because it will not require the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish State. Once the Arabs get their State in the West Bank they will attack Israel from the West Bank as they do from Gaza. Obama's TWO State Solution is actually a ONE State Solution because it will lead to Israel's destruction.

The only possible solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict is to recognize that THE PALESTINIANS ALREADY HAVE A STATE IN JORDAN. Since the US/EU claim the Arab-Israeli conflict can be solved though a UNSC resolution why not submit one declaring that JORDAN IS PALESTINE?

Jordan was created in land from British Mandate Palestine, it is not honest to keep Jordan out of the solution. Most of the Jordanian population is Palestinian, the previous King said "Jordan is Palestine, Palestine is Jordan". The Queen of Jordan Rania Al-Yassin was born in Kuwait to Palestinian parents Faisal Sedki Al Yassin and Ilham Yassin from Tulkarm, Jordan has a Palestinian Queen! The next King of Jordan will be the son of a Palestinian. The Arabs currently living in Israel can continue but they will be Jordanian Citizens.

18. Investigate and Prosecute GOP

Republicans in Congress have now contacted foreign governments with the intent of negotiating with them regarding United States ongoing discussion about foreign policy, namely inviting the head of a country (Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel) to invite him to speak to the U.S. Congress about his country's desires on topics the executive branch must perform.

In addition, Republicans in Congress have now contacted Iran's leadership that Congress could nullify any negotiated agreement the Executive branch has made, warning Iran that they would likely abort or alter such an agreement once the current president leaves office. In the first case, Israel's Netanyahu was invited by John Boehner, the Republican Speaker of the House to speak to congress & in the latter case, Mitch McConnell, Republican Senate Majority Leader along with 47 others signed the open letter to the Iranian leadership. Both acts are against the Logan Act regarding negotiations.

The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 30 January 1799, currently codified at 18 U.S.C. § 953) is a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. It was passed in 1799 and last amended in 1994. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.

The Act was intended to prohibit United States citizens without authority from interfering in relations between the United States and foreign governments.

19. Retake Gaza

Given the discovery that all Gaza tunnels where going to be used in one night to inject thousands of Hamas militants disguised as IDF soldiers in the cities of the South to massively kidnap and murder our inhabitants in order to paralyze our army;

Given the fact that they are still firing rockets after a month of warfare and that there a more than a hundred tunnels left and deep underground bases (see US satellite info);

Given the fact that Hezbollah has the same thing by a factor of 10;

Given the fact that the US President accepted the new CIA geostrategic report for our region explicitly stating there will be no more jewish State but just a jewish protectorate under the Great Califate-in-the-making (see the ISIS army that sprung to the fore from nowhere..);

Given the Knesset report proving the costs of israeli administration of Gaza were far lower than the costs incurred since the retreat (and that didn't include the cost 100.000$ per Iron dome anti-missile);

Given the fact that some long tunnels have been found in the Hebron area as well, given the fact that even the Left in Israel demands to enforce through the army a sustainable solution and refuses ceasefires,

Given the fact that but our Government covered-up for 2 years the intelligence reports regarding those tunnels and is now bent on forgoing the strategic victory to the Hamas in order to advance the PLO-based Palestinian State, and

Given the many civilian casualties and given the unceasing warfare originating from Gaza:

20. South Africans for Israel

Israel is once again under attack. Not only does it defend itself militarily against Islamist terrorists, it also fights a propaganda war unleashed by a coalition of media savvy support groups.

The ignorance of some sections of the media together with Islamic radicals, students of historical fiction and anti-establishment anarchists adds to the violence, which is being taken to the streets in capital cities around South Africa.

Last but not least ill-informed politicians with no knowledge of historical facts are supporting the terrorist narrative.

This coalition albeit noisy, is not representative of the majority. We ask that freedom-loving and civil-minded South Africans take this opportunity to sign their name in support of the people of Israel and their government.

22. Omnipresent God in You to guide you to revere all Unconditionally

Bring World Peace Now.

The Omnipresent God in all people is guiding all people in any given moment as to how to revere what or whom is before you in the moment. By looking beyond the outer façade or packaging of the relative world you can start to realize God is everywhere. When you realize God is everywhere you start to love all unconditionally. The highest form of love is not attachment but reverence to the indwelling God.

When you can feel love/ reverence towards all unconditionally you develop an understanding heart. You understand why people attach to the relative world and see the relative world as their source. Seeing the relative as their source is creating a false god. There is only one Absolute Source… God attach to that Source and release the relative.

Attachment to the relative is the cause of ALL STRIFE IN THE WORLD TODAY! The land is not ours, the resources are not ours, people, family, children are not ours, indeed our lives are not ours. They are all God’s in our trust. We are not our culture a macro mask aka persona, we are not our religion mask/ persona, we are not our language. We are to honor all as a part of God first and foremost and put all else as secondary. No matter what our role in life we are to honor the Omnipresent God in all.

THIS IS A CALL FOR ALL PEOPLE AND NOW MORE THAN EVER, ALL MILITARY PERSONNEL TO NOT BE PRESSURED INTO DISHONORING GOD IN ALL. IF AN ORDER DOES NOT REVERE GOD IN ALL IT IS NOT OF GOD. FOLLOW YOUR INDWELLING CONSCIENCE. TAKE YOUR ORDERS FROM GOD NOT EXTERNALS.

IN THE BEGINNING AND TODAY WAS THE WORD (RESONANCE). IF IT DOESN'T RESONATE AS REVERENT DON’T DO IT. YOU CAN BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD BY SURRENDERING TO GOD IN FAITH, IN ALL FAITHS. WE CAN COEXIST.

23. Tell Facebook to take down the fuck Israel page

We need lots of signatures so Facebook can take down a page called fuck Israel.

My friends and I recently reported the page and Facebook said they can't remove it cause it doesn't violate their policy.

24. PLO: terminate Oslo, work with all Palestinians for new direction

Palestinians have seen their lands and property taken by hostile settlers. Since the biggest loss in 1948 there has been relentless further dispossession, especially after Israel's army took the remaining land in 1967 and refused to give it up, in defiance of international law.

Despite 20 years of talk about two states “side by side”, Israel’s expansionist leadership has made sure that the whole land remains under its total control. This is the way they aim to keep it — one country, with one law for the privileged, and different law for the rest.

All the instability, wars, bloodshed and heartbreak caused by this massive land-grab can only be put right by justice and restitution. But even on the best terms the "two state solution" never promised justice, and its phoney “peace process” has monopolised the diplomatic stage for decades — allowing accelerated colonisation while misdirecting many of those seeking peace.

Now it is time to put on the agenda the one solution that can change the game, heal the wounds and unite Palestinians and Jewish Israelis of conscience in a powerful movement of co-Resistance to win full and equal rights for all in the one country that Israel has created.

In one democratic country, all law-abiding communities could flourish and find justice and fulfillment.

This petition/statement supports and follows on from the April 2014 Open Letter from 108 distinguished Palestinians to PLO President Mahmoud Abbas, urging him to “declare a final break from the pattern of endless negotiations established at Oslo” and to facilitate a new dialogue among the Palestinian people about future aims.

Their statement ends “we are not ready to surrender, and we reject the attempt by anyone to surrender in our names”.

25. Request Michael Oren Accept Martin Sherman's Debate Challenge

We hereby petition Amb. Michael Oren to accept Dr. Martin Sherman's challenge to a public debate on the various and multifaceted ramifications and validity (or lack thereof) of Mr. Oren's recent statements regarding Israel's national policies regarding the disputed territories (also known as Judea and Samaria or The West Bank) and how they might impact Israel's present and future prospects for genuine and durable peace and security.

The debate should be held at a place and time mutually agreed upon by the two participants and made open to the public.

26. Don't Let Israel/Palestine Politics Undermine Academic Freedom

We urge our colleagues in the United States and across the world not to use the politics of the Israel/Palestine conflict to undermine academic freedom. We call for academic freedom to be defended across the board, by and for people on all sides of the Israel/Palestine conflict.

For further information on the petition, see http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2014/01/27/new-statement-seeks-reframe-academic-debate-about-israel-boycott and http://forward.com/articles/191848/academic-freedom-not-boycotts-should-be-focus/.

We also encourage all signatories to give their names - NOT to use the "anonymous" option.

27. ENFORCE a Royal Commission into the Port Arthur massacre

A proper Royal Commission investigation into the Port Arthur, Tasmania, Australia, massacre of 28 April 1996 is required to find the perpetrators and release MARTIN BRYANT from his life incarceration in the barbaric Dickensian Risdon prison in Tasmania, Australia.

I have uploaded Dr. Keith Noble’s book “MASS MURDER OFFICIAL KILLING in Tasmania Australia” (13 MB), to 4shared at
http://www.4shared.com/office/ov-UenBw/Port_Arthur_mass_murder_Dr_Kei.html and you can download it from there. It is 695 pages and will convince even the most sceptical of us that MARTIN BRYANT did not, and could not have, committed the crimes for which he was rail-roaded. It has no copyright.
