BELONGS TO ISRAEL
Copied out of the Golden
By Jerry Golden
at his best
Even those who
aren't particularly sympathetic to Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu,
could get a good measure of satisfaction from this interview with
British Television during the retaliation against Hamas' shelling
asked him: "How come so many more Palestinians have been killed in
this conflict than Israelis?" (A nasty question if there ever was
Netanyahu: "Are you
sure that you want to start asking in that direction?"
(Falling into the trap) Why not?
in World War II more Germans were killed than British and Americans
combined, but there is no doubt in anyone's mind that the war was
caused by Germany's aggression. And in response to the German blitz
on London, the British wiped out the entire city of Dresden,
burning to death more German civilians than the number of people
killed in Hiroshima. Moreover, I could remind you that in 1944,
when the R.A.F. tried to bomb the Gestapo Headquarters in
Copenhagen, some of the bombs missed their target and fell on a
Danish children's hospital, killing 83 little children. Perhaps you
have another question?"
Netanyahu gave another interview and was asked about Israel's
occupation of Arab lands. His response was, "It's our land". The
reporter (CNN or the like) was stunned - read below "It's our
land..." It's important information since we don't get fair and
accurate reporting from the media and facts tend to get lost in the
jumble of daily events.

BRIEF FACTS ON THE
ISRAELI CONFLICT TODAY... (It takes just 1.5 minutes to read!)
It makes sense and
it's not slanted. Jew and non-Jew -- it doesn't matter.
Nationhood and Jerusalem: Israel became a nation
in 1312 BC, two thousand (2000) years before the rise of
Arab refugees in Israel began identifying
themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades
after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.
Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BC, the Jews
have had dominion over the land for one thousand (1000) years
with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300
The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635
lasted no more than 22 years.
For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the
Jewish capital. Jerusalem has never been the capital of any
Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied
Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab
leaders did not come to visit.
Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach,
the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in
King David founded the city of Jerusalem.
Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.
Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with
their backs toward Jerusalem.
Arab and Jewish Refugees: in 1948 the Arab
refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders
promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty-eight percent left
(many in fear of retaliation by their own brethren, the Arabs),
without ever seeing an Israeli soldier. The ones who stayed
were afforded the same peace, civility, and citizenship rights
as everyone else.
The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from
Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms.
The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in
1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish
refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be about 800,000.
Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not absorbed or
integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the
vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World
War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has
never been absorbed or integrated into their own people's
lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a
country no larger than the state of New Jersey.
The Arab-Israeli Conflict: the Arabs are
represented by twenty two separate nations, not including the
Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation. The Arab nations
initiated all five wars and lost. Israel defended itself each
time and won.
The PLO's Charter still calls for the
destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the
Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the
Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them.
Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were
desecrated and the Jews were denied access to places of worship.
Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been
preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.
The UN Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175
Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were
directed against Israel.
Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on
before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel.
The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem
were destroyed by the Jordanians.
The UN was silent while the Jordanians
systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the
Mount of Olives.
The UN was silent while the Jordanians enforced
an apartheid-like a policy of preventing Jews from visiting the
Temple Mount and the Western Wall.
These are incredible times. We have to ask what our
role should be. What will we tell our grandchildren about what we
did when there was a turning point in Jewish destiny, an
opportunity to make a difference?
START NOW - Send this to 18 other people you know
and ask them to send it to eighteen others, Jew and non-Jew - it
doesn't really matter.
Whose land is it?
A short history lesson
You can go all the way back to the Stone Age and
then forward through the Bronze and Iron Age on to the Israeli
Conquests from 1,200 – 1,000 BC -- and you will not find in any of
those times a "Palestinian" people. Much less one that was in
control of this land called the Holy Land. You can then search the
history books and see that from 1,000 BC up until 587 BC the Jews
struggled among themselves over the land, yet stayed in control of
it. Afterward came the Persians then the Hellenists, and later, the
Then came the Romans. To shorten a long story,
they had so much trouble with the Jews they ended up destroying
everything Jewish that they could find. This even included changing
the name of the place from Israel to "Palestine". That happened
around 63 BC through 324 AD. From that time forth everyone who lived
here in this land were called "Palestinians". The Greeks, Persians,
and even the Jews, were all called Palestinians. Much the same as
those who live in the USA are all called Americans.
After the Romans came the Byzantines, the
Crusaders, the Mamluks, and the Ottoman’s. In 1917 came the British
who stayed in control of Palestine until 1948. During their stay in
Palestine they even created a State for the Arabs (Palestinians) who
lived here, it's called Jordan. Then in May of 1948 God brought the
Jews home, and ISRAEL BECAME A NATION ONCE AGAIN, Ezek. 37.
From 1948 until 1967 Egypt controlled the Gaza
Strip and Jordan controlled the "so-called" West Bank, Samaria and
Judea. After the 1967 six day war this all changed, and Israel was
once more in control of their mountains "Judea & Samaria" and more
importantly their beloved Jerusalem.
However, I am sure you know all of this. I want
to make this very clear to everyone; there is one thing absent in
all of the above. At no time did the "Palestinians" have control of
anything, much less this land. It is also interesting to note that
during the time span 1948 –67 when Egypt and Jordan were in control,
there was never any talk of a Palestinian State. So why is it so
important now? The answer is simple; it is JIHAD "A Holy War" - not
a national one. It is the war that has raged on for thousands of
years between Ishmael and Isaac, the Arabs and the Jews.
To keep this report short, I will not continue
further with the thought above; instead I will close with this; The
Palestinians cannot have their "State" back, because they never had
one in the first place! This is yet another Islamic lie, and part of
their desire to control or kill Jacob. So when you hear them say the
Jews are on Palestinian land, it is another of their lies. But what
is so amazing is that no one is questioning their right to say it.
In the meantime we have precious little time to
get ready for a mass exodus of Jews from Eastern and Western Europe
as anti-Semitism is spreading at an alarming rate. We need your help
and I am asking you to pray about your part in this Ministry.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel
and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this Ministry and your part in
Shalom, Jerry Golden
