No other peoples had ever established a national homeland in "Palestine" since the Jews were forced from it by Romans 2,000 years ago!
In July 1922, the League of Nations entrusted Great Britain with The Palestine Mandate, including the land east of the Jordan River, recognizing "the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine."
A few months later, after the Great Britain and France made a deal with the Hashemite Kingdom and Egypt, the Eastern side of the Palestinian Mandate: The trans-Jordan (77% of the Palestinian Mandate) was given to the Saudi Arabian king's brother; the Golan Heights (5% of the Palestinian Mandate) was ceded to the French controlled Syrian Mandate, and the Sinai was given to Egypt.
The 1947 UN Resolution 181 partition plan was to divide the remaining 18% of Palestine into six triangles with Jerusalem as an international city - a Jewish Palestinian State and the SECOND Arab Palestinian State. Jews, traumatised by the Holocaust, accepted this idiotic plan, but the Arabs rejected it, as their aim was and still is to take all Palestine!
After winning the war against seven Muslim states, which most international Anti-Semites anticipated would be victorious completion of a “Final Solution”, on May 14, 1948 Jews finally declared their own State of Israel!
For quite a while, Muslim/Arab world and other enemies of Jews were incapacitated by the shock.
Only in 1964, the KGB created the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine. In the same year, the first PLO Council, handpicked by the KGB, approved the Palestinian National Charter!
From 1949-67, while Judea, Samaria, Gaza, and East Jerusalem were occupied by Jordan and Egypt, there was no attempt to give independence to the so-called Palestinians living there. Quite the opposite!
The Six Days war and the Yom Kippur war have proven to the Soviets the futility of this front of the proxy war with the West! And Arabs began to look for new sponsors of their anti-Jewish complaints.
It did not take long for the Western countries and the UN to pick up an anti-Israel banner. After all, in addition to pampering their old Anti-Semitic feelings, support for the anti-Israel cause has provided them with a secure supply of oil! By the end of the 1980s, the idea of Israel-bashing had gained acceptability, and by the end of the 1990s became popular and respectable among the Western politicians and academics! With a little or no effort at all, blaming Israel for everything and ignoring the terrorism, violence, and problems instigated by the Palestinian Authority, have become the norm now!
Step by step, traditional Anti-Semites of Europe and the Muslim world, with the help of useful idiots in the multiple UN organizations, deliberately and methodically have been vilifying and delegitimizing Israel, in their attempt to discredit the legitimacy of the only Jewish state!
At the moment, there is a feeling that change is coming. Hopefully, it will be strong and permanent - only time will tell. But regardless of who is in charge of the White House or in control of the United Nations, the government of Israel must assort itself as a leader of the sovereign state! It must start working toward ending occupation of all Jewish land by the enemies, and bring the reunification of Eretz-Israel forward!

I would like to make a factual correction of a statement, which quite often is said even by people who claim that they are friends of Israel: "City of Jerusalem is Home to Jews, Christians and Muslims." Let be honest and clear about it - Mecca is home of Muslims; Rome is home of Christians! Mohamed had never visited Jerusalem and Christianity was created by dwindling Roman Empire, after it destroyed the Second Temple and dispersed Jews through the empire!
Two IAF F-35 Adir fighter jets entered Iranian airspace undetected. The planes circled at high altitude above Persian Gulf sites suspected of being associated with the Iranian nuclear program. The two jets went undetected by radar, including by the Russian radar system located in Syria.
The Saudi Arabian government has come up with a project, called NEOM, that could give its economy a boost: a $US500 billion mega-city that will connect to Jordan and Egypt and be powered completely by renewable energy. The city will measure 10,230 square miles – the size of new-York! The city will be built in the North-West of the kingdom - not far from Jordan, Egypt, and Israel! (There will be a need for a work-force to build it: people to populate and work in it. This will be the perfect opportunity to repatriate so-called Palestinians from Jewish land!)
U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said at a Security Council meeting that the United States will no longer shoulder costs of the United Nations' peacekeeping operations. The US is the biggest contributor to the UN's 15 peacekeeping missions. The world body is assessing the US about 28.5 percent of this year's $7.3 billion peacekeeping budget.
As Netanyahu and Erdogan's public clash over Gaza escalates, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan says in hindsight, perhaps 2016 detente should not have been approved. Relations between the former allies imploded in 2010 following an Israeli naval raid on a Turkish aid ship trying to breach Israel’s blockade of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. (Israel paid Turkey $20 million, to the families of terrorist supporters, in reparations agreed in reconciliation deal!)
US President Donald Trump issued a proclamation in honour of Education and Sharing Day, marking the anniversary of the birth of the last Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Trump met with a delegation of rabbis from the Chabad-Lubavitch movement in the Oval Office.
After US congress passes Taylor Force Act, halting economic aid to Palestinian Authority until it ceases paying money to families of terrorists, President Abbas has decided to return to directly providing financial aid to families of terrorists imprisoned in Israel and to families of terrorists killed in attacks against Israel. (Will the UN, the 'Ugly Nazi', stop financing the terrorist organization?)
Justice Minister says majority of illegal infiltrators are not refugees, but those who are will be allowed to remain in Israel. She declared, "I can say with assurance that this government will remove the infiltrators who are migrant workers to places outside the borders of Israel. The State of Israel cannot be a solution to the employment problems in Africa." (Australian government does not allow refugees, who have illegally entered the country, to stay - Israel must not, too!)
Central District Attorney's Office cites lack of guilt in decision to close case against parents who accompanied group of 20 children on trip near Qusra and came under attack by a Palestinian mob on November 30, 2017; the shooting of Mahmoud Za’al Odeh, who was among the rioters, was found to be in self defence.
The only power plant in the Gaza Strip stopped working night, exacerbating the electricity crisis in the Gaza Strip, Ma’an reported. The electricity distribution company attributed the halt in operations to the fact that fuel trucks have not been able to enter from the Egyptian side of the border.
Council for Higher Education decides to adopt regulations barring lecturers from taking part in academic boycotts as well as prohibiting discrimination against lecturers or students over their political views; universities and colleges will be required to incorporate them into their disciplinary code, despite objections from university heads. (This is long over-due! Universities in Israel became an anti-Zionist breeding ground, endorsed by leftist members of academia.)
Muslim oppression is causing Christians to leave the city of Bethlehem, where they were once the majority. "Before the Palestinian Authority took control of these territories, about 85% of the population (of Bethlehem) were Christian citizens, and now they are less than 10% because the Palestinians prevent them from applying their faith and (performing) their customs and their prayers..." said Dr. Herrera.
Instead of allowing the IDF to defend Israel’s citizens and win, the state comptroller has chosen to unconditionally give in to irrelevant 'requirements' in the name of international law, demanding the inclusion of more legal advisers in the fighting ranks. (There are already several cases when IDF personal delayed response to a terror attacks due to fear of legal recrimination!)
QUOTE of the WEEK:
“Respect in politics comes with power, not with nice manners. With nice manners all you (Jews) can get is the Holocaust...” - Noël Ratz, a Facebook comment – We, Jews, must remember that our enemies only ‘love’ us when we are weak and defenseless!
Fraudulent Perplexity of Gaza Situation!
(A FaceBook post – modified and commented on)
OK let try to understand Middle Eastern politics in Gaza.
1. Gaza, ancient community. (Actual Philistines, like Canaanites, have gone long time ago! Even according to modern international laws, Anti-Semites ignore in the case of Israel because it benefits Jews, Gaza, and West Bank - Judea and Samaria, belong to Israel!)
2. Jews farmed peacefully in Gaza, until the rise of Hamas.
3. 8,500 Jews were forced to leave Gaza. (There were no international protests against “population transfer” of Jews! Only Jews are not allowed to transfer hostile enemy population!)
4. Under international pressure Israel left Gaza.
5. Gazans burned the highly lucrative greenhouse farms bought for them (and established terrorist training camps there).
6. Hamas is voted in as the "democratically" elected government of Gaza (Population of Gaza is complicit in Hamas aggression).
7. Hamas constantly sends missiles and rockets at Israeli towns for years - clearly “casus belli”, provocation and justification for a war. (Still there is NO international condemnation!)
8. War breaks out again and Israel is blamed. (In spite the fact that Israel did not dismantle Hamas leadership or remove enemy population from Jewish land!)
9. Egypt closes the border with Gaza completely and ceases all aid. (No international condemnation!)
10. Abbas decides to halt aid to Gaza. (No international condemnation!)
11. Along the border Hamas organised an anti-Israel demonstration calling - wait for it - for Return! (If you are confused – calling for complete occupation of Jewish land and destruction of Israel!)
So let's get it right! Israel left Gaza. Hamas terrorizes Jews by firing rockets at Israel, yet even during times of war, Israel continues sending humanitarian aid to enemies in Gaza.
Who is blamed by international Anti-Semites? ISRAEL!!!!
The Bottom Line: Enemies are occupying Jewish land with the intention to destroy Israel! International Anti-Semites have been supporting them and condemning Israel for any attempts of self-defence and assorting its rights to the Jewish land.
Conclusion: Israel must remove hostile enemy population from all Jewish land! Yes, Israel will be chastised and condemned by the UN and other anti-Semitic organizations and states, but what is new. At the end, Israel will reunite Jewish lands and will eliminate terror attacks from enemies within - It is easier to control aggression of external enemies!
