250 Rabbis to Obama: Jerusalem is Jewish

Posted by Mats on 22/07/2009

What are our ‘peace-partners’ saying?

“Peace for us means the destruction of Israel.  We are preparing for all-out war, a war which will last for generations.” – Yasser Arafat, former leader of the PLO.

“We plan to eliminate the state of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state.  We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion.  We Palestinians will take over everything, including all of Jerusalem.” – Yasser Arafat, former leader of the PLO.

“If the Jews all gather is Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide” – Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary General of Hezbollah.

(Israelnationalnews.com) Heads of the Pikuach Nefesh rabbinical committee have begun collecting the signatures of rabbis in Israel on a letter to United States President Barack Obama. The letter demands that Obama cease talking about ending Jewish construction in Jerusalem and stop pressuring Israel in that direction.

In a reference to the upcoming “nine days” which culminate in Tisha B’Av, the rabbis tell Obama that “during these days, in which the Jewish people mourns the destruction of Jerusalem and marks the disgraceful memory of its destroyers, we are certain that you, Mr. Barack Obama, do not want to enter that disreputable list of those who raise their hand to strike Jerusalem and those who live in it.”


We are certain that you, Mr. Barack Obama, do not want to enter that disreputable list of those who raise their hand to strike Jerusalem and those who live in it.

The rabbis note that during his visit to the Middle East, Obama showed “impressive erudition” in the Koran. “As one who is familiar with the Koran, you surely know that the city of Jerusalem is not even mentioned in it once,” they said.

Jews pray towards one place

“The Arab and Muslim world never recognized Jerusalem as belonging to it,” the letter went on. “On the other hand, all of the world’s nations knew for thousands of years that the Jews pray towards one place only – the holy city of Jerusalem.”

The rabbis added that even putting aside the city’s enormous sanctity and importance for the Jewish people, there is no realpolitik logic behind any concession to the PA. “Since Israel began negotiations, withdrawals and concessions to the Palestinians, the entire world is witness to the justice of the Jewish Law (Halacha) which determines that any such concession will entail another round of bloodshed and deepen mistrust and dangers,” they agreed.

The rabbinical letter ends with a clear request: “If you, Mr. Obama. Wish to leave any chance at all for peace and quiet in the Middle East, take your hands off the Holy City of Jerusalem right now!” %ad%

Two hundred and fifty rabbis have signed the appeal, and efforts are being made to collect the signatures of almost every single rabbi in Israel before the letter is sent to Washington.

Jordan Strips Its Palestinians Of Citizenship

Posted by Mats on 21/07/2009

Original Article

Here’s yet another example of the Arab’s ‘compassion for their Palestinian brothers’- the Jordanian government is stripping its Palestinian Arabs of their Jordanian citizenship:

Jordanian authorities have started revoking the citizenship of thousands of Palestinians living in Jordan to avoid a situation in which they would be “resettled” permanently in the kingdom, Jordanian and Palestinian officials revealed on Monday. {…}

“Many Palestinians living in Jordan are convinced that the Jordanian authorities are trying to squeeze them out,” said Ismail Jaber, a West Bank lawyer who has been living in the kingdom for nearly 20 years. “There is growing discontent and uncertainty among Palestinians here.”

The Jordanian minister said that the Palestinian leadership in the West Bank had been notified of the decision to revoke the Jordanian citizenship of Palestinians.

A PA official in Ramallah expressed deep concern over Jordan’s latest move and said that it would only worsen the conditions of Palestinians living in the kingdom. The official said that PA President Mahmoud Abbas raised the issue with King Abdullah II on a number of occasions, but the Jordanians have refused to retract.

A little background…Jordan is over 70% Palestinian, but is ruled by the minority Bedouin Hashemite monarchy. Most of the ‘Palestinians’ who inhabit Judea and Samaria ( AKA the West Bank) were Jordanians who were deliberately resettled there after Jordan illegally attempted to annex Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem in an attempt to colonize and Arabize the area after its Jewish resident were ethnically cleansed in 1948.

When Israel retook the area after Jordan launched an attack on Israel as part of the Six Day War, Jordan passed laws reaffirming the citizenship of the Arabs living in Judea and Samaria..and then refused to allow its own citizens back into Jordan. No, I’m not joking. For years, no Jordanian citizen living in Judea or Samaria was allowed to enter Jordan without special permission, and often only by depositing a hefty cash bond with the Jordanian government to ensure their return.

Jordan also holds the record for killing and expelling the most Palestinians of any country in the Middle East,(Israel isn’t even close) a distinction it won during ‘Black September’ in 1970. And these are the same people who talk about Israeli apartheid and ‘justice for the Palestinians’ with a straight face!

Needless to say, the UN and the various so-called human rights groups won’t even mention this .

But imagine what would happen if Israel decided to remove it’s non-citizen Arab residents from its territory?

Call this just one more piece of evidence that the entire Palestinian refugee is one of the biggest scams ever pulled in history. The Arabs couldn’t care less about them.

Creationist Family Torture Son to Death in Palestine

Oh wait. Wrong topic. It was the religion of peacers again.

Palestinian family tortures, murders 15-year-old son for “collaboration” with Israel

The jihad is merciless. “Palestinian family kills 15-yr-old son,” by Khaled Abu Toameh for the Jerusalem Post, June 11 (thanks to Vaughan):

In the first incident of its kind, a Palestinian family has killed its 15-year-old son in the West Bank after accusing him of “collaboration” with Israel.The boy’s body was discovered near Kalkilya on Wednesday.

The Palestinian Authority security forces announced that they have arrested a number of the boy’s family members in connection with the killing.

The victim was identified as Raed Wael Sawalha.

PA security sources said the suspects confessed to the killing, claiming that they decided to kill Masalha because of his alleged connections with the Israeli authorities….

A preliminary investigation launched by PA security forces revealed that Sawalha had been brutally tortured before he was hanged to death….

Gen. Adnan Damiri, spokesman for the PA security forces in the West Bank, said the perpetrators were all members of the boy’s family, including the father, uncle and cousin….

Black President Endorses Judenrein

Posted by Mats on 21/05/2009

By Debbie Schlussel

America, you’ve regressed a long way, baby. As in, HusseinObamaJudenrein.

Remember when Black people couldn’t live in certain neighborhoods? If you’re a liberal Kennedy, you don’t need to remember, because the time is now. Several of the Kennedy family homes have restrictive covenants forbidding the sale of the homes to Blacks (and some of them to Jews, too).

Well, no wonder the Kennedys liked Barack Obama for President. He’s buying into the restrictive covenant and redlined neighborhood idea . . . but in another country.

Yup, Barack Hussein Obama–a Black President, whose own father–had he grown up in America, would be shut out of owning a home in certain neighborhoods–is now pushing bigoted ethnic-based housing policies on Israel.

He says, “no Jews can live here,” about portions of Israel that were the ancient grounds of Jewish history, portions of Israel where the Jewish patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob–and Joseph, though Palestinians destroyed his tomb–are buried.

US President Barack Obama said Monday after crucial talks with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Israeli settlement building in the West Bank must be “stopped.”

Sickening.

Eugene V. Rostow, the American who negotiated key U.N. Resolutions regarding what was and wasn’t Jewish land and the so-called “settlements”–which can mean neighborhoods of Jerusalem and its suburbs. And the fact is Rostow’s position was that such settlements are not “illegal” under U.N. or international law. Read his article on this issue. Given this, where does a foreign leader–in this case, Obama–get off telling a country where Jews can live and how it must “redline” its neighborhoods? That is illegal in America.

Why is this apartheid okay for America to dictate to Israel?

Hmmm . . . I think Binyamin Netanyahu ought to tell Barack Obama that he wants no new homes built for Black people in Brooklyn and no new homes for non-Mexicans in the the San Diego area.

That’s essentially what’s going on here.

There was a time–not long ago–when Jews in many neighborhoods in America were told they were not allowed. Usually the signs read, “No Dogs or Jews Allowed.”

Good news. For Barack Obama, in the so-called “West Bank,” dogs are now allowed. Yes, we’ve “evolved.”
