Hamas, PLO reach agreement: Israel has no right to exist
May 1, 2017 — Israel National News reports: “Despite ongoing strife between the two largest factions in the Palestinian Authority – PA chief Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah and the Hamas movement – recent statements by representatives of both groups suggest the two rivals may be working to resolve their differences.
The apparent beginnings of the rapprochement between Hamas and Fatah are rooted in the one area of agreement between the two factions, says the Palestinian Media Watch, which has monitored a spike in public overtures between senior officials of the two groups.
Unfortunately for Israel PMW reports, the effort to unify the two largest PA factions is based not on a joint vision for improving the lives of those under PA rule, but on the two groups’ shared hatred of the Jewish state and belief that Israel has no right to exist…” (The nations may say: “…Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance” – Psalm 83:4. It won’t work. God declares: “… I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off” – Isaiah 56:5.)
Jordan to Israel: Withdraw and you’ll get security
April 30, 2017 — Israel National News reports: “Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi on Saturday said Arab countries would provide security for Israel if it withdraws from Judea and Samaria.
Safadi’s comments came during a meeting with in Moscow with his counterpart, Sergey Lavrov.
‘In order for Israel to live in peace with the Arabs, it is necessary for them to leave the territories occupied after 1967. So if this happens, the Arab countries will be ready to give security guarantees to Israel,’ the Jordanian minister said, according to the Russian Sputnik news agency.
Safadi added that the Israeli-Palestinian Authority (PA) conflict was a key concern for the Middle East.
‘We consider the settlement of the Palestinian problem as a core of tensions in our region. That is why we definitely plan to create additional conditions for security and stability in our region and in the whole world,’ he said, according to Sputnik.
The PA insists Israel withdraw from Judea and Samaria as part of a peace agreement. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has repeatedly warned that doing so would jeopardize Israel’s security and demands that the IDF maintain security control in any future Palestinian state…” (“And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt; To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day. Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the Lord he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else. Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, for ever” – Deuteronomy 4:37 – 40. In this passage, God gives Israel both a conditional, and unconditional promise. The conditional promise is that if they obeyed God’s statutes they would remain in the land. The Bible tells us that the Israelites often disobeyed, and faced times of temporary exile from their land. The history of Israel in the Old Testament, especially in the time of the Judges, was sin – servitude – supplication – salvation. They would fall into sin, God would use the Gentile nations to oppress them, the Israelites would cry out to God, and God would rescue them. However, the end of Deuteronomy 4:40 tells us that God has given Israel the Promised Land for all time – as was signified in the Abrahamic Covenant – Genesis 15:18 – 21. See the next report.)
Rare pre-state document claims Israel entitled to Judea, Samaria
May 2, 2017 — Israel National News reports: “Nearly seven decades after the establishment of the State of Israel, American Jews are sharply divided over Israeli policy in Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem – with conflicting views both over what choices would be best in Israel’s interest, as well as whether Israel even has a right to large swaths of the historic Jewish homeland.
But was the American Jewish establishment always so divided on the issue of Jewish rights over the Land of Israel?
A newly preserved pre-state memorandum by some of the leading figures in the American Jewish community suggests that unlike today, prior to the establishment of Israel, American Jewry embraced Israel’s claim to the historic Jewish homeland, including Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria.
The 107-page memorandum, entitled ‘The Basic Equities of the Palestine Problem’, was produced by eight prominent Jewish American jurists in September 1947, and sent to the United Nations in response to the UN’s Special Committee on Palestine’s report which suggested a partition of the country, leaving the proposed Jewish state with a tiny portion of the land originally allotted to it by the Balfour Declaration and subsequent League of Nations Mandate for Palestine…”
Citing ‘Protocols,’ Jordanian TV tells viewers Jews are an ‘abhorred’ people
May 2, 2017 — The Times of Israel reports: “A program broadcast on Jordan’s Prime TV channel in April examined ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,’ treating the notorious anti-Semitic document as an authentic Jewish text proving Judaism’s efforts to secretly control and manipulate the rest of the world.
The ‘Protocols,’ a forged text produced in Russia at the turn of the last century, purports to outline Jewish plans to take over the world. It has been used by anti-Semites throughout the 20th and 21st centuries as justification for their views.
Host Ayed Alqam opens the three-part series by calling Jews ‘an ostracized and abhorred people’ known ‘for their lying, fraud, and deception, and their sowing of strife.’
He goes on to introduce the ‘Protocols’ and to cite them as proof of Judaism’s culpability for any and all hardship experienced by Arab countries…” (The Jewish people have long been blamed for all of the world’s ills. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was first published in Russia in 1903. It supposedly recorded the minutes of a meeting of Jewish leaders who discussed their goal of Jewish rule by subverting the morals of Gentiles, and by controlling the press and the world’s economies. All throughout history they have been the universal scapegoat. Incredibly, even the awful plague of the Black Death that swept Europe was blamed on the Jews. They were accused of having poisoned wells with a powder made of spiders, frog legs, Christian entrails, and consecrated hosts (Communion bread). The public wrath that resulted from that fantastic tale brought about the slaughter of thousands of Jews and the complete extermination of two hundred Jewish communities. This can be traced back to the father of anti-Semitism – Satan who “…stood up against Israel” – I Chronicles 21:1. God loves His Chosen People – “…I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee” – Jeremiah 31:3. See the next two reports.)
Erdogan lashes ‘racist’ Israel, calls for Muslims to flood Temple Mount
May 9, 2017 — The Times of Israel reports: “Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday urged Muslims to throng to the Temple Mount in a show of solidarity with Palestinians as he issued a string of challenges to Israel, which he called ‘racist and discriminatory.’
‘We, as Muslims, should be visiting Al-Quds more often,’ he said, referring to Jerusalem by its Arabic name.
‘Each day that Jerusalem is under occupation is an insult to us,’ he added, at the opening ceremony of the International Forum on al-Quds Waqf in Istanbul, Turkey’s Hurriyet news reported.
Erdogan said increased Muslim visits to the Jerusalem holy site ‘would be the greatest support to our brothers there.’
‘Both in terms of our religion and historical responsibility, Al-Quds and the fight of our Palestinian brothers for rights and justice is of great importance to us. We will keep making efforts for Quds to turn into a city of peace,’ Erdogan said…”
Erdogan says he is working to halt ‘judaization’ of Jerusalem
May 9, 2017 — The Times of Israel reports: “Hours after launching a scathing attack on Israel, calling on Muslims to flood the Temple Mount in protest at the ‘occupation’ of Jerusalem, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed ways to halt the so-called ‘judaization’ of Jerusalem with Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah.
Meeting with Hamdallah in Istanbul Monday night, Erdogan ‘confirmed the necessity of unifying efforts to protect Jerusalem against attempts of judaization,’ according to an official statement carried by the Palestinian Ma’an news agency.
On Monday evening, Erdogan drew swift Israeli rebuke for a speech in which he called Israel ‘racist and discriminatory,’ and said Muslims should visit Jerusalem’s flashpoint Temple Mount more often to support Palestinians.
‘Each day that Jerusalem is under occupation is an insult to us,’ he said, at the opening ceremony of the International Forum on al-Quds Waqf in Istanbul, Turkey’s Hurriyet news reported…”
