One State Israel

Yes to a Strong Israel

“And You Shall Tell Your Children”

Women in Green emphasize the need to educate our children about our rights to the Land of Israel.

By Nadia Matar and Yehudit Katsover

We are often invited by various youth groups for meetings and joint discussions, where we are asked to present the position of the “settlers” i.e of the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria.

Basic questions come up in these meetings, such as: why are we here in the Land of Israel? What is our overall position on the Arab-Israeli conflict? What is our solution to the complex reality? etc.

These meetings are fascinating. Many times these meetings are the first chance these teenagers, who come from all over the country, have to meet a “settler” in person. Even though each group has it’s isolated islands of knowledge and familiarity with the real, historic facts, we mostly encounter alarming ignorance.

Granted, our teenagers have heard something vague at some point or another regarding “the British Mandate”, but they aren’t aware of the fact that in the resolution about handing over the mandate it says that “the Mandate will be responsible for fulfilling the declaration made by the British government on February 2nd 1917, which was accepted by the other Powers, to assist in the establishment of “the national home for the Jewish people in the Land of Israel”.

As weird as it may seem, it turns out that there aren’t many students in Israel who know about the fact that the British were bound by international law to establish a national home for the Jews, in Israel, on both sides of the Jordan River.

The conversation continues and we discuss the colloquial term “Palestine”, and here as well, we encounter total ignorance. Very few students know that that name was given to the region by the Romans, after the destruction of the 2nd Temple, with the deliberate intent of erasing the fact that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jews from the consciousness of the general population at the time.

When we quote famous Arab leaders who openly admitted that the term “Palestinians” is pure fiction, the eye and ears of the students open in complete surprise. They were never told about Zuheir Mohsen, senior member of the PLO, who said in the 1970s:

“There is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians, and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. We emphasize the Palestinian issue only for political reasons. The establishment of a Palestinian state is simply a new tool in our ongoing war against Israel”.

The above are only a few examples. It turns out that entire chapters of the history of the Jewish people in their land and the right of the Jewish People to its land, have been concealed and are intentionally being suppressed from the consciousness of Israeli students. Thus, a generation is being formed here which is receiving its information from the sedition and the lies and the distortions being spread across the internet and the hostile media, both in Israel and abroad.

The People of Israel are unlike any other nation. While other nations, especially the European nations, disintegrate their nationalism and the “I” becomes the most important thing to them, the nationalism of the People of Israel has global role which is second to none. This nationalism is not egotistical. Our nationalism advances the entire world towards a better, loftier and more virtuous future. Our overall ambition is setting the world as the Kingdom of G-d.

Israeli teenagers are drafted to the IDF at an age that is critical for their future, and the vast majority of them do so out of great love and an enormous sense of purpose. Withholding from them the information and truth surrounding the past and future of our people and our Biblical, historical and international rights to this land is no less than a grave injustice to them.

Modern King David Fighting the USA Campus Goliath

American Jewish college students are standing up for Israel on college campuses in America.

By Batya Medad

An open letter to the FM By Justin Hayet

Dear Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman and the entire Netanyahu government,

I asked you, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, a question this Sunday at the Jerusalem Post’s Annual Conference in New York. My question, I thought, was simple; “What is the Foreign Ministry of Israel doing to stand with college students, like myself, to fight BDS [Boycott, Divest, Sanction] on campus?”

Your response was nothing but loaded rhetoric downplaying the existential BDS threat and downplaying the attacks against me on my campus for being a Zionist. Perhaps worst of all, you downplayed the anti-Semitic attacks on students across the United States, Europe and soon the world. These attacks exist because we are proud Zionists.

You should have responded with a big fat “nothing,” because the Foreign Ministry of Israel has decided to focus its attention elsewhere. Though it may be more practical to allocate time and resources elsewhere, in doing so, Israel is taking a risk it cannot afford to take. By focusing all of its energy on its adversaries, many of whom will never recognize Israel either on a map or as a Jewish state with a right to exist, Israel is putting the passion of North American Zionists, many of whom are Jews and many of whom are not, on the back burner. This, I believe, is of a greater existential threat than a nuclear-ambitions Iran.

Though five thousand miles away from Israel, we awake to Israel each morning as we flinch our eyes to see the Israeli flag hanging in its infinite blue beauty above our beds. We do so with pride. Israel is with us as we wake to see the news from the past day in Israel as we slumbered in our secure beds in upstate New York. Though not wearing a Magen David every day, we carry our Zionism on our backs each day, and people try to slander us for it as if “Zionism” is a dirty word.

Contrary to those closed-minded individuals who say Zionists must live in Israel, the movement of young college students in the States fighting for Israel represents the very core of Zionism. That is, young people doing incredible things for the State of Israel.

You have given us MASA, you have contributed to the founding of Birthright-Taglit and this was your gift to us. We, now, have a gift for you, Mr. Foreign Minister and Mr. Prime Minister. It’s called hasbara (public diplomacy). It’s free, it’s our duty, it’s our calling, it’s our obligation and it’s our gift to you and the Jewish state and the flag we awake to every morning. What do you think?

Israel’s History in Pictures: Passover in Jerusalem 1919

Wow! These pictures are amazing!

By Lenny Ben-David

The British army captured Jerusalem from the Turks in December 1917 and continued their Palestine campaign for another year until the capture of Damascus. Meanwhile, the Jewish Legion, consisting of Jewish volunteers, sat in Cairo chafing at the bit to join the fight in Palestine. They finally joined Allenby’s forces in June 1918 and fought against the Turks in the Jordan River Valley.

Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men

A very interesting anecdote from this article: It’s remarkable that, multiculturalism notwithstanding, such institutions as the U.S. government and the Vatican are warning women away from inter-religious marriages with Muslim men!

By Daniel Pipes

Note to readers: This entry on official advice to women not to marry Muslim men has become the springboard for an intense, heated, and personal dialogue between non-Muslim women romantically involved with Muslim men.

Judging by a number of testimonies of many writers, the site has proved valuable to many women benefiting from advice and the sharing of information; for a couple of examples see the postings by Sally, Nourshehane, Jeweler46, and Cindy. Others have found solace in kindred spirits.

After a slow start, the discussion took off and now has over 11,000 comments, or about four a day.

Israel’s Worst Enemy: Lies and Myths

If the world diplomats, including US diplomats, would only use logic, reason and real facts to back up their activities, the Middle East peace process would look very different!

By: Bruce Thornton

The Washington Post reports that some members of Secretary of State John Kerry’s senior staff think it’s time to say “enough” of Kerry’s futile and delusional attempts to broker peace between the Israelis and Arabs and implement the “two-state solution.” That’s a revelation one would think the chief diplomat of the greatest power in history would have experienced decades ago. Since the failed 1993 Oslo Accords, it has been obvious to all except the duplicitous, the ignorant, and the Jew-hater that the Arabs do not want a “Palestinian state living in peace side-by-side with Israel,” something they could have had many times in the past. On the contrary, as they serially prove in word and deed, they want Israel destroyed.

As Caroline Glick documents in her new book The Israeli Solution, the “two-state solution” is a diplomatic chimera for the West, and a tactic for revanchist Arabs who cannot achieve their eliminationist aims by military means. But the “Palestinian state” is merely one of many myths, half-truths, and outright lies that befuddle Western diplomats and leaders, and put the security and possibly the existence of Israel at risk.

First there is the canard that Israel is somehow an illegitimate state, a neo-imperialist outpost that Westerners created to protect their economic and geopolitical interests. In this popular myth, invading Jewish colonists “stole” the land and ethnically cleansed the region of its true possessors, the indigenous “Palestinian people.” This crime was repeated after 1967 Six Day War, when Israel seized the “West Bank,” occupying it as a colonial power and subjecting its inhabitants to a brutally discriminatory regime. The continuing power of this lie can be seen in the frequent comparison of Israel to apartheid South Africa. And this false historical analogy in turn drives the “Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions” movement, which is attempting to make Israel even more of a pariah state in order to duplicate the success of those tactics in dismantling white rule in South Africa.

Congressman ‘Shocked’ by anti-Jewish Measures on Temple Mount

Two U.S. Congressman have positive experience in Israel except for the shocking treatment received on the Temple Mount by the Waqf.

By Ari Soffer

US Rep. Bill Johnson, (R-OH) was joined by Congressman David McKinley (R-WV), on a tour of the State of Israel organized by the Israel Allies Foundation and Yes! Israel missions “to see the situation there for ourselves”.

The trip took them to all corners of the holy land; from the southern towns of Sderot and Ashkelon, where they met with local residents and heard their accounts of life under rocket-fire from the Gaza Strip, to Judea and Samaria, central Israel and the Golan Heights.

The trip, Johnson said, left him with the indelible impression that “the people – especially the Jewish people – are very interested in peace.”

He noted, for example, how in the Golan Heights Israel is treating Syrians injured by the civil war there without discriminating between the sides.

“Many of these are the very same people that on any other given day would want to kill the Israelis!” he remarked.

His visit to Judea and Samaria was extremely enlightening, he said. “When people talk about ‘settlements’ you think plywood and tents… but these people live just like us. There are schools, houses, shopping centers – these are real communities with real people.”

But he said his experience on the Temple Mount stood in “stark contrast” to the rest of his time in Israel.

In an exclusive interview Congressman Johnson told Arutz Sheva that while he was inspired by his experience in Israel as a whole, he was “shocked and disturbed” by what he witnessed firsthand at Judaism’s holiest site.

Despite being the holiest site in Judaism, Jewish access to the Temple Mount is very limited – including a blanket ban on Jewish worship there – in what activists have condemned as a capitulation to Muslim extremism. Israeli police, in an attempt to appease the Muslim Waqf trust which was left in charge of the compound after the 1967 Six Day War, ban Jews from praying or performing any other form of worship.

The two US legislators were part of a small group of six people, led by Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute, among hundreds of people queuing to visit the Mount, which is also the site of the Al Aqsa Islamic complex.

“When we were finally allowed to go through we were followed very closely by a member of the Waqf,” he recounted.

“It struck me how intimidating this gentleman was trying to be. He looked like someone out of a Hollywood movie – with his hair slicked back and his shades hiding his eyes so you couldn’t see what he was looking at… he stayed pretty close to us, and followed us around wherever we went.

“The rabbi pointed out that if he were to take out his Torah or give any indication that he was exercising his freedom of worship on the Temple Mount by praying – or if any of us were to take out our Bibles and try to pray or express our religion on the Temple Mount… we could have been arrested and removed and incarcerated.

“This thug followed us everywhere we went and if we stopped and took too long in one place he would look at the Israeli police, who would say ‘you need to keep your group moving.’”

Despite a police escort, the group was subjected to a torrent of verbal abuse by a group of female Muslim worshipers who, he noted with some irony, were engaged in “their own prayer services, their rituals” on the Mount, “something Jews are not allowed to do.”

The experience left him “shocked and disturbed”, and he said he found it hard to reconcile such a jarring experience with the rest of his trip, which was overwhelmingly positive.

But Johnson was philosophical about the episode, saying it taught him something far deeper about the Arab-Israeli conflict as a whole.

“It showed me the extent that the Israeli people and Israeli authorities are going to in order to try to create an atmosphere of peace. They are going to the extremes to try and create an atmosphere where there’s no violence and no one feels intimidated.”

The issue, he says, is that “the Israeli police have been instructed to prevent anything occurring on the Temple Mount which could incite violence – but it’s the Waqf which gets to decide what constitutes incitement!

“The Jewish people have conceded enough. They have given up land for peace over generations, they have been squeezed into such a confined space that now even today they do not have full autonomy, authority and sovereignty over the very holy places that define their existence in the first place.

“The rest of the world seems to be blind to the fact that one side truly desires to live in peace and harmony – and that’s the Jewish people.

“The other side, the Palestinian Authority, don’t desire peace at all – I think they just desire the Jewish people to go away.”

An Anti-Israel Tourism Subterfuge

Are enemies are using tourism as a means of sabotage!

By Janet Levy

Under the guise of experiential, educational sojourns in the Middle East, an ongoing, extensive tourism subterfuge of global proportions is at work today. This comprehensive and coordinated fraudulent operation includes travel agency fronts, terrorist groups, international NGOs, Islamists, and Leftists. They include such organizations as the Siraj Center for Holy Land Studies, Abraham Path, the Soros Foundation to Promote Open Society, and others.

All of them, whether unwittingly or intentionally, are part of an effort to turn tourists, college students, and Christian pilgrims against the Jewish state of Israel. Using the rubric of “a connection between people from the Middle East,” these travel expeditions underhandedly buttress a political agenda that delegitimizes and demonizes Israel. They are part of a scheme to fundamentally transform the Western world, by undermining Judaism, the root of Christianity, and moving on to the destruction of Christianity as well.

Abraham Path partners with the United Nations Tourism Organization and Harvard Law School and receives financial support from the Riyadh-based, Alwaleed Bin Talal Foundation. Prince Talal, a Wahhabist, shortly after 9/11, admonished the United States to change its stance in the Middle East and turn toward the Palestinian cause, declaring, “Our Palestinian brethren continue to be slaughtered at the hands of Israelis while the world turns the other cheek.”

Yet, the organization’s true goal is to delegitimize Israel on the global stage, shift U.S. public opinion against Israel, and promote the view that Israel and Israel alone is responsible for the “conflict” with Arab-Palestinians. Telos conducts this subterfuge or propaganda war under the guise of a “pro-peace” agenda, which is merely a cover for promulgating misinformation about Israel.

Travelers see and experience what these often allied organizations want them to see in Palestine — abject poverty, oppression, desperation, barbed wire, water shortages, and other deplorable conditions. Left out are swanky hotels, sprawling residences, luxurious resorts, and thriving commercial enterprises that exist in the Palestinian territories. The traveler on their tours is left with the distinct impression that Israel is wholly responsible for the miserable existence of the Arab-Palestinians they visit and see.

These NGO-funded non-profits travel outfits use heavy propaganda. They refer to “Palestine” as the “cradle of civilization” and the place where Judaism, Christianity and Islam took root. Of course, truth is a casualty in this narrative as the Muslim prophet Mohammed hailed from Mecca and never visited Jerusalem except reportedly in a dream. Further, Jerusalem is never mentioned by name in the Koran and Muslims pray facing their holy city of Mecca, to which they must undertake a hajj or pilgrimage at some point in their lives as a religious obligation.

By contrast, Jerusalem has been the holiest city for Jews since the 10th century B.C. and is endowed with a special status in Jewish religious law. Jews pray facing Jerusalem and the holy city is mentioned 669 times in the Tanakh or Jewish Bible. For Christians, Jerusalem is significant as a place that Jesus visited as a child, preached in as an adult, consumed his “Last Supper,” was crucified, and resurrected. The Christian Bible refers to Jerusalem 154 times.

Ignored on the tours are positive facts about Israel: that it is a democracy under the rule of law with equal rights for Arab citizens, including the right to vote and have representation and serve in the Knesset. Also ignored is the contrast to the Palestinian Territories, which operate under tyrannical leaders who torture and imprison the opposition. These tour groups accuse Israel of apartheid, but the Arab-Palestinians are the true practitioners of apartheid and insist that Jews will be forbidden to live in any future Palestinian state.

Thus, this seemingly innocuous network of tourism enterprises is actually a comprehensive influence operation to indoctrinate unsuspecting tourists and turn them against the Jewish state. By denying and undermining the truth of the Middle East and replacing it with lies and propaganda, the travel experience actually aims to impose the one supreme religion — Islam — and deny all other faiths.

Former Knesset Member: “Act on Sovereignty Before Palestinian Authority Does!

Former MK Elyakim Ha’etzni says annex Judea and Samaria before it’s too late!

By Moshe Cohen

In the end, Israel is going to have no choice but to annex Area C of Judea and Samaria, according to attorney and former MK Elyakim Ha’etzni – and Israel would be better off doing it sooner rather than later.

With the Palestinian Authority filing applications to UN committees to accept it as a full member states, it’s just a matter of time before the UN recognizes “Palestine” as a state altogether. In response to the PA’s move, Israel has made a series of threats, the most serious a cutoff of aid to the PA.

Last week the Palestinian Authority filed requests for recognition as a full member state. If that is granted, the PA plans to do the same with dozens of other UN agencies, until it has joined enough to convince the UN to treat it as a member state. When that happens, said Ha’etzni, Israel’s options will be much more limited. “Any action by the IDF in ‘Palestine’ will be seen as violating the rights of a member state, leading to sanctions and other punishments against Israel, said He’etzni.

If the PA changes the rules of the game Israel must respond accordingly, he added. “If they change the status of Judea and Samaria, we have to do so too,” Haetzni said. “We have to at least impose Israeli sovereignty in these areas as well.”

“If we do not act and allow the Palestinians the advantage, we will lose a great deal,” Haetzni added. “The Palestinians will be able to do all sorts of things, like open an airport – and Israel will not be able to stop them.”
