Israel to acquire two more German submarines
Navy already operates three similar submarines, capable of launching cruise
missiles with nuclear warheads.
Maariv International 2004-12-22

Germany has agreed to sell Israel another two Dolphin-class submarines, They
will join the three Dolphin -class submarines already operated by the
Israeli navy, making Israel one of the premier maritime powers in the
Arabian Sea.

The new pair of submarines, like the first three, will be built at the
Kiel-based Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft AG, the world's biggest builder of
diesel submarines. The new boats are more advanced in that they will able to
stay submerged for longer than the first Dolphins. The reported cost for the
two craft is $700 million.

Berlin has overcome its reluctance to the craft being fitted with nuclear
cruise missiles, in the interests of a newly adopted more aggressive defense
exports policy, and out of understanding that the EU's attempts to halt Iran
's nuclear weapons program is unlikely to succeed.

Israel already has a major presence in the area. It has a naval and air base
at Dahlak, a small island owned by Eritrea just outside the strategic Bab el
Mandeb straits, where the Red Sea enters the Arabian Sea. At least one of
its three Dolphin submarines is always on patrol in the Arabian Sea.

In May 2000 Israel is reported to have secretly carried out its first test
launches from two German-built Dolphin-class submarines of cruise missiles
capable of carrying nuclear warheads. According to foreign military and
intelligence sources, the missiles launched from vessels off Sri Lanka in
the Indian Ocean are said to have hit a target at a range of about 1,500
kilometers. The missiles reportedly carry a 200kg nuclear warhead containing
6kg of plutonium.

Several countries have, or plan to have a powerful and permanent naval
presence in the Arabian Sea. The US and British
navies maintain a constant presence in the area, from its staging point at
the British naval base of Diego Garcia, in the middle of the Arabian Sea.

India, the region's largest naval power (and the only country apart from the
US and UK to operate aircraft carriers), maintains a major naval presence,
including submarines and surface craft. Pakistan also has a constant
submarine patrol. Although most of its naval forces are aged and obsolete,
it recently purchased three France has constructed three Agosta-class subs
from France, and is mulling buying two more. These are primarily
interceptors, for use against surface ships and other subs, and cannot be
used as platforms for cruise or ballistic missiles.

Indian subs of British-Russian manufacture sail keel to keel with Israel
subs made in Germany, against Pakistani vessels made in France and Iranian
subs made in China.

3. Big IRA Robbery of Australian-Owned bank in Ulster

Former Provos had 'the right skills' to carry out £40m raid


A TEAM of 50 detectives were embroiled in one of the biggest criminal investigations in history last night as police chiefs in Belfast stepped up the hunt for a gang of armed men who pulled off the most audacious bank robbery ever seen in Britain.

Police sources in Ulster revealed they were convinced the gang, who stole up to £40 million in cash from the Northern Bank on Monday, were ex-paramiltaries, most likely former members of the Provisional IRA with experience of weapons and money laundering.

Detectives also suggested the robbers would not have been able to carry out the huge raid on the bank’s headquarters in Donegall Square West, Belfast, without inside information and ongoing co-operation from current or former employees.

The scale of the raid has stunned the province’s police officers, who are in the middle of a major offensive against organised crime in Northern Ireland, which is worth an estimated £1 billion a year. Assistant Chief Constable Sam Kinkaid confirmed last night that his officers were examining hundreds of hours of CCTV footage in the hunt for the robbers, examining videotapes from cameras positioned in and around the bank. He said: "A bank audit has yet to establish exactly how much was taken, although police sources have put the total as high as between £30 or £40 million.

"This was not a lucky crime, this was a well-organised crime. We have discovered a burnt-out vehicle that may be the van used to remove the money.

"This is clearly one of the most audacious and well-planned robberies I have ever encountered. This was a professional operation carried out by extremely serious criminals."

Speaking to The Scotsman, a police source said that if the raid was carried out by former terrorists, as suspected, they may already have a plan to launder the money. He said: "At the height of the Troubles, the Provisional IRA in particular were extremely adept at hiding and laundering money, so it is obviously a serious concern if they are involved in this heist."

The meticulously planned operation began late on Sunday evening, when members of the gang took over the homes of Kevin McMullan and Chris Ward, two senior executives of the Northern Bank’s staff.

In the first raid, the armed men, posing as police officers, went to Mr McMullan’s home in Loughinisland, Co Down, and told him a relative had been killed in a car crash. After gaining access to his house, they put a gun to his head, tied him up and held him captive. They then kidnapped Mr McMullan’s wife, Karen, and took her to another location, where they held her blindfolded.

At the same time, Mr Ward and his family were being targeted by the robbers as they watched television in their family home in Poleglass, on the western outskirts of Belfast. The bank official was tied up along with his mother, father, brother and his brother’s girlfriend and guarded overnight by the armed and masked men.

At 7:30am, Mr Ward and Mr McMullan were separately ordered to drive to work, park their cars, go to their desks, chat normally with colleagues and engage in their daily business routines - with the warning that their family members would be murdered if they raised the alarm.

By 4:30pm, at the close of business, members of the gang arrived at the headquarters, parking their white transit van in a loading bay, and were given access to the cash distribution centre where the vaults were full of money scheduled to be distributed to the bank’s 95 branches and high-street dispensing units in and around Belfast.

The money was then taken out of the bank in two separate runs into a waiting white, box-type van with a specially fitted tail-lift. Four hours later, the gang escaped with their van filled with millions in both used and new Northern Ireland notes. They later released the two bank managers to be reunited with the members of their families taken hostage.

At 11pm, Mrs McMullan, suffering from exposure, made her way to a house after being left in Drumkeeragh Forest Park, Co Down, between Ballynahinch and Castlewellan. Her car was later found burnt out in the Forest Park.

Yesterday, the National Australia Bank, the owners of the Northern Bank, revealed they would have to bear the loss. They confirmed they had no external insurance policy to offset the losses for the UK’s biggest bank raid.

Military planning of bank gang

DETECTIVES in Belfast claimed yesterday that the gang behind Monday’s robbery on the Northern Bank’s Belfast headquarters planned it like a military operation, a fact that almost certainly suggests paramilitary involvement.

The "Commandment" of Environmental Protection
Inside Israel
[] One of man's duties after Creation was "to preserve" the world, according to the Torah. In this vein, hareidi-religious Israelis have recently become publicly active in environmental protection.
Yehuda Ganut, from a predominantly hareidi neighborhood in Petach Tikva, has founded Hareidim L'Svivah [religious-hareidim for the environment]. This group is similar to one in Har Nof which earlier this year actively worked for preserving nature areas in the fast-developing region.

Suffering from pollution and noise in Petach Tikva, in the greater Tel Aviv area, Ganut convinced the city to move a nearby bus terminal to a different area. After a television crew came to his Hadar Ganim neighborhood and publicized the group's activism, Ganut turned to the issue of parks and open spaces.

Ganut has support from many neighbors who studied in the Hevron Yeshiva in Jerusalem and together founded the Hadar Ganim area. Next on Hareidim L'Sviva's list of targets is a new access road to the neighborhood, which Ganut says will be a further source of pollution and noise.

Ganut freely quotes sources in Jewish Law concerning the need for a clean and safe environment. One of his favorite is that of the Rabbi Yaakov Yisroel Kanievsky, known as the Steipler Gaon, who spoke about the value of trees as an expression of G-d's works.

A hareidi newspaper has featured Ganut and his activities, noting they are welcome additions to "a field that probably was not previously known to exist."

Ancient Pots Reveal Ancient Diets

Saturday 11 December 2004
Extracts Only

By analysing fat traces in 3000 year old cooking pots from Gordium in central Turkey, Todd Craig at the University of New England has been able to trace the transition between plant oils and animal fats, marking the arrival of new groups of people. So far, he has identified pork, beef, sheep and some plant oils.
Program Transcript

Todd Craig: We don’t get complete pots complete pots are quite rare but what we have are pieces of pots which we can extract fats from.

Robyn Williams: There’s still food traces left in those ancient pots, even 3000 years after the event?

Todd Craig: Yes, it’s really quite incredible. What we found is that there are small amounts of fats still there. Fats are quite interesting in that they’re very, very hydrophobic, which means they don’t like water, so basically ground water percolation through a site, while it will destroy most other kinds of foods, won’t destroy fats.

Robyn Williams: But what does it tell you, apart from the fact that they may have used olive oil?

Todd Craig: Different cultures have different kinds of food, all you have to do is look at our modern world, we have regional cuisines and things like that. So a large change in food can usually be taken to mean a large change in population. So what we’re doing is looking at changes in the food to try and date the arrival of new groups of people.

Robyn Williams: And what have you found?

Todd Craig: Well, we found that at the end of the late Bronze Age we know that there was a large collapse of the civilisation at that time and we found that at the start of the next period there is a really, really large change in the way that people are eating foods. From the late Bronze Age we see that people were eating a diet mainly composed of plain foods whereas at the start of the early Iron Age, the next period, we see that there is a much great emphasis on sheep and beef.

Robyn Williams: And you can sheep and beef fat out the pots sherds that you’ve dug up?

Todd Craig: Yes, absolutely. We’re talking about very small amounts of fats of course, milligrams not kilograms.

Robyn Williams: No, sure but traces how do you get those traces out of the pottery?

Todd Craig: Basically what we do is grind the pottery and then extract it with methanol and chloroform in an ultrasonicator, which effectively removes the fats from the ceramic.

Robyn Williams: How do you tell sheep fat from beef fat?

Todd Craig: We’ve gone to a lot of trouble of constructing a reference set for this type of work and you can tell by the different types of fats that are actually in the ceramic what they’re likely to come from. Some animals do not have certain kinds of fats whereas some plants have certain kinds of fats, and from that we can diagnose what it actually was likely to be.

Robyn Williams: And you’re saying that there’s a transition point going from lots of plant oils at one stage to a time when obviously they got their animals and they were scoffing them. Any historical records that back up this transition that confirm what you’ve found?

Todd Craig: Well, we do know that at some stage there was a change in population where a group called the Phrygians move into the region replacing the Hittite population of the late Bronze Age. The exact timing of this is kind of vague and part of what the study is trying to establish is when these people actually do arrive. But yes, there is evidence that they do come into the region and these Phrygians are probably of Greek origin, which means that they’re likely to bring a Greek style diet with them with the heavy emphasis on things like sheep, which is exactly what we’re seeing.

3. The Throne of Darius
Tehran: 17:13 , 2004/12/20
Archaeologists believe they have discovered part of throne of Darius
TEHRAN, Dec. 20 (MNA) -- Iranian archaeologists believe they have found a part of one leg of the throne of Darius the Great during their excavations at Persepolis, the ancient capital of the Achaemenid dynasty, the director of the team of archaeologists announced Sunday.

“Four archaeologists of the team found a piece of lapis lazuli during their excavations in water canals passing under the treasury in southeastern Persepolis last year,” said Alireza Askari, adding, “The studies on the piece of stone over the past year led the archaeologists to surmise that the stone had probably been a part of a leg of the throne of Darius.”

According to historical sources, the upper parts of the throne of Darius were been made of gold, silver, and ivory and its legs were made of lapis lazuli, Askari said.

The throne had been transferred to the treasury after Xerxes I, the son of Darius, was crowned king. In addition, the figures carved on the stone are similar to the relief works in different parts of Persepolis, he stated.

Persepolis was established by Darius I in the late 6th century B.C. Its ruins lie 56 kilometers northeast of Shiraz. Darius transferred the capital of the Achaemenid dynasty to Persepolis from Pasargadae, where Cyrus the Great, the founder of the Persian Empire, had ruled.

4. International Tsunami Damage
The death toll from the tidal waves that struck nine Indian Ocean countries has risen to 23,700, the international Red Cross said Monday.

The highest toll was in Sri Lanka, with 12,000 deaths assumed. In India the number was 5,000, in Indonesia 6,000, and over 800 in Thailand.

The toll had been extended to include some 500 deaths along the shores of Somalia - for the first time including Africa.

Other countries reporting included Malaysia with 52 deaths, the Maldives with 43, Myanmar with 12 and the Seychelles with three.

A large proportion of the victims were youngsters, and funerals were held for children and teenagers who could not cope with the fury of the sea. Ted Chaiban, chief for the UNs children's Fund in Sri Lanka, estimated that nearly half the victims there were children.

In Cuddalore, India, the bodies of more than 150 children killed were buried in a mass grave; their weeping, red-eyed parents looking on as a bulldozer filled the hole with sodden earth.

The tides have left million of people homeless, and thousands were still missing.

The severity of malaria attacks also increases because people move from their home districts where they have developed immunity to the local version of the malaria parasite, medical officials said.

The United Nations, which is coordinating with organizations including the international Red Cross, will have to rely on countries such as India to shoulder much of the burden for their own recovery.

The United Nations' World Food Program appealed Sunday for an initial US$1.5 million to help meet immediate food needs of hundreds of thousands of Tsunami victims. A much larger regional appeal will be launched later this week.

Britain and Italy each confirmed that 11 of their citizens had died in Thailand, Norway confirmed 10 dead, Sweden had nine, with hundreds unaccounted for, the United States confirmed eight dead, France and Denmark confirmed three, and Australia, Belgium, South Africa two. Finland confirmed one.

Malaysia, South Korea, Switzerland, Poland, Japan, Russia, Turkey, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Czech Republic had unconfirmed reports of dead or missing.

[[Numerous Israelis especially youngsters were in these areas and up to 100 are still un accounted for according to last reports]]

5. Did Brit-Am Unconsciously Give Warning?
The following Psalm and Brit-Am Commentary was sent out about a week before the event.
Was it a warning?
Is it a foretaste of what we may be expected if we do not all mend our ways?

This Psalm has been interpreted as giving praise to the Almighty who reveals Himself through the wonders of nature.
The Radak explains it in an allegorical manner: The Radak suggest that the MIGHTY are Israel, The Gentiles are represented by THE CEDARS OF LEBANON (cf. Ezekiel 31:3) and by the Mountains (Isaiah 54:10). The destruction of the pagans is represented by the action of a great flood of water or to destruction wrought by the action of water. The Psalm indicates the final war of Gog and Magog when those nations who do not recognize the God of Israel will war against Israel and meet their downfall.

It may be that The Gentile Nations are referred to as Cedars of Lebanon since in the future they are destined to be ruled from Israel represented by Lebanon.

Subject: Israeli Aid, Unreported

Dear HonestReporting Subscriber,

When disaster strikes anywhere in the world, Israelis can be counted on to help. So it's no surprise that within hours of the devastating tsunami in the Indian Ocean, the following humanitarian missions all departed from the tiny Jewish state:

IDF rescue team on its way to Sri Lanka
The Israeli organization Latet ('To Give') filled a jumbo jet with 18 tons of supplies.

A medical team headed by four doctors from Jerusalem's Hadassah Hospital arrived in Sri Lanka on Monday night (Dec. 27), carrying medicine and baby food. The doctors specialize in rescue operations, trauma and pediatrics.

An IDF rescue team is now on its way to Sri Lanka with 80 tons of aid material, including 10,000 blankets, tents, nylon sheeting and water containers, all contributed by the IDF.

A ZAKA rescue-and-recovery team arrived in the disaster areas Monday night, armed with its specialized equipment for identifying bodies.

A Health Ministry contingent left for Thailand on Monday night to aid in rescue efforts. The group includes doctors, nurses and four members of the IDF.

Israel has also offered its assistance to India a search-and-rescue team from the Home Front Command, as well as consignments of food and medicine.

Yet, with the exception of UPI (as of this writing - Wed. 4pm EST), none of the major news outlets have dedicated an article to this remarkable Israeli humanitarian effort. This, despite the fact that the IDF sent all Israel-based journalists a press release Monday evening (Dec. 27), inviting them to the airport to cover the departure of one IDF group.

This is all the more surprising given the fact that the major news agencies have entire teams of reporters in Israel, who submit at least one 'Israel-article' each day.

So what did the Associated Press send out today to its 15,000 subscribing news agencies? A dreary story about the construction of a new IDF base near Jenin. AP sarcastically remarked in this 'news' story that the base's 'elaborate color scheme and landscaping shows that the army is not planning to pull its forces out of the area anytime soon.'

The lack of media interest in this Israeli humanitarian effort means that Israeli benevolence toward other peoples is not fairly conveyed to the western world. Perhaps if it were conveyed, observers would come to understand something else that Israel's response to Palestinian violence is also motivated by the highest ethical concern for all human life, and is not (as the media so often portray it) driven by an oppressive, mean-spirited national ethos.

HonestReporting encourages subscribers to write a letter to your local paper, praising the massive Israeli humanitarian mission to South Asia which the major media have apparently deemed 'not newsworthy.'

Thank you for your ongoing involvement in the battle against media bias.

5. Report: Pope Pius XII wanted to keep baptized Jewish children after war
Extracts Only:

Pope Pius XII ordered the papal nuncio in France to impede the return of Jewish child survivors of the Holocaust to their families or Jewish communities following World War II, according to a document published Tuesday in Corriere della Sera.

According to the report, in 1946 the pope instructed Nuncio Angelo Roncalli to refuse to hand back children who had been baptized by their Catholic caretakers, but Roncalli, the future Pope John XXIII, disobeyed.

The document is located in the first tome of the fifth volume of Years in France, the Agendas of Nunzio Roncalli, 1945-1948, edited by Etienne Fouilloux, which has just been published by the Bologna Institute for Religious Sciences, which is issuing the diaries and agendas of John XXIII. The French original is in the archives of the French Catholic Church.

According to Bologna Institute director Alberto Melloni, Roncalli had just arrived on the French post-war scene, and the Catholic Church was in turmoil, navigating between collaborationists and partisans of the Resistance in its own ranks, but also oscillating ideologically between theological renewal and an increased vigor of Holy Office supporters.

Roncalli, though loyal to Pius XII, used his judgment and made independent moves, Melloni said. Roncalli's Agenda notes that in 1946 he received Yitzhak Herzog, chief rabbi of Palestine, as a friend, and on July 19 provided him with a letter authorizing him "to use his authority with the relevant institutions so that whenever the case arises, these children may return to their original environment."

Three months later, he received the orders from the Holy Office to impede the return of the children.

Some cases of the protected Jewish children had happy endings in which they were returned to the Jewish community. Melloni said reliable records are not available, except "in the injured memory of the victims of this human and spiritual tragedy."

Key points

US $A44.9 million, plus ships, planes and helicopters loaded with supplies, and troops to help clear bodies.
Japan $A38.5 million.
Australia $A35 million, plus four Hercules loaded with personnel and supplies.
Germany $A3.4 million
China $A3.3 million, mostly in the form of supplies, such as blankets.
Britain $A2.1 million.
Singapore $A1.5 million.
Spain $A1.2 million.
France $A227,000, plus a plane with medical personnel.

The United States yesterday rejected claims it had been stingy in its response to the disaster in South-East Asia but it also agreed to give more money.

"The US is not stingy," said Secretary of State Colin Powell. "We are the greatest contributor to international relief efforts in the world."

The US initially said it would give $US15 million ($A19.2 million) in aid, an amount considered paltry given the scale of the disaster. Critics noted the US was giving less than the cost of one F-16 fighter and less than the US spends in an hour in Iraq.

In response, the US yesterday more than doubled its aid package to $US35 million, making it the largest single donor. Mr Powell said the initial $US15 million should not be seen as "just a one-time thing".

Australia, which has only one-15th of the population of the US, has pledged more than $A43 million - $35 million from the Federal Government and more than $8 million from the states and territories - or more than Britain, Germany and France combined.

France has so far pledged just $170,000, plus an aircraft with 100 medical personnel and relief workers on board.

However, his comments were seized upon by aid agencies, dismayed by the initial response to the tsunamis. The International Committee of the Red Cross has said it hopes to raise $44 million but the damage bill is estimated to be in the billions.

A year ago last January, the editor-in-chief of the prominent Saudi newspaper Al-Riyadh, Turki Al-Sudairi, disclosed that the Saudi government dispenses millions of dollars a year in bribes to journalists around the world to write articles sympathetic to Saudi Arabia and to attack Israel.

French newspapers are virulently anti-Semitic as it is, but Saudi money insures they stay that way. Hundreds of journalists, reporters, commentators, and talking heads from scores of publications and media outlets in dozens of countries are on the Saudi payroll. It’s a very sophisticated operation, and world-wide in scope.

That scope includes America especially America. How many American reporters and columnists liberal and conservative are on the Saudi payroll? The best person to investigate this would be legendary journalist Arnaud de Borchgrave, whose deep contacts in both Saudi Arabia and throughout the entire global media community go back decades.

No one would be better than Arnaud at determining whether or not such prominent columnists as Robert Novak and Georgie Anne Geyer, who write consistently fawning columns on Saudi Arabia and blistering attacks on Israel, are beyond suspicion.

It would also be an excellent opportunity for Arnaud to dispel the persistent belief among a number of otherwise knowledgeable people in Washington that, given Arnaud! ’s own rabidly anti-Israel columns, he himself is on the Saudi payroll which I am sure could not possibly be true.

The Saudi press has acknowledged that the Saudi government is bribing journalists all over the world.

Shalom Yair,

In your discussion of the USA below you opine that perhaps 50% of the people would favor a "European" solution to the Israeli/Mideast situation. I think that appraisal is too pessimistic. Based on the polls I've seen, I think that a substantial majority of Americans are pro-Israeli and only a minority would favor a "European" solution.

This is powerful to say the least. Sounds as if you have a good handle on world situations and politics. I agree with you on most all the points you make - but I am uneasy about all the Jews being gathered in one place - Israel would make a more desirable target for the enemy to eliminate all the Jews if they were all inhabiting the land of Israel. Having the Jews scattered throughout America and other western nations does protect Judah from mass annihilation, don't you think. Until Ephraim has destroyed the enemy - the Israelites, both Joseph and Judah must remail scattered. To force prophecy into happening at man's own wishes would only be disasterous.

Shalom Yair,
I believe you left out an a very important element - a group that you, of
all people, know is out there but do not seem to recognize. I am talking
about the thousands of those from the nations all over the world who have
identified themselves with Israel but are believers in Yeshua as the
This group believe strongly that they are a part of the lost tribes who are
returning to the G-d if Israel and His instructions for living - His Torah.
They keep Shabbat and the festivals, avoid pagan "holydays", keep kosher,
circumcise their children, struggle to learn the Hebrew language, and LOVE
Israel AND the Jewish people. They have left the christian churches with
their pagan practices and meet in homes and small congregations all over the
world. They are despised by their former christian churches because of their
love for Torah.
They are considered outcasts by most Jews, religious and secular, and all
but a few of the intenational "messianic" Jewish organizations because thay
are not Jews. They are called Jewish wannabe's and told they have no
inheritance with Israel. They seem to be considered a threat to most
religious and Zionist Jews because they identify with Israel and because of
their belief in Yeshau.
They believe that the promises to Ephriam and Ez. 47: 21-23 belong to them.
They KNOW that they are part of the prophesied returning Israel and that one
day they WILL return. Many are willing at this time to give up their own
national citizenship to join themselves to Israel. They know they face
hardship and persecution. They are Israel's most loyal supporters - much
more than your secular Jewish American brothers. Their love for Israel knows
no bounds. Their hearts and loyalties are with Israel. They believe that the
Land of Israel is G-d's inheritance for the people of Israel and long to
JOIN themselves to the people of Israel and claim their inheritance ALONG
WITH their Jewish brothers.
I do not know how many there are but I believe the number to be in the
hundreds of thousands, mostly in the United States, but literally from the 4
corners of the earth. They have a few teachers but no real leader. Many came
to their understanding of their identity just by reading scripture. Their
hearts and eyes were opened and they bgan to identify themselves as
Israelites. Many thought they were the only one and were surprised to find
so many others who believe the same. The internet has shown us that we are
not alone.
At this time there are 2 main factors that hinder them from physically
joining with their Jewish brothers. Both are factors on the part of Judah.
The first is Judah's failure to recognize them as their literal Ephriamite
brothers. At this time blood proof seems to be more important to Judah than
identity and loyalty. I believe there will come a time when Judah will
recognize their need for their loyal brothers to be in the land standing
with them against all who would come against them.
The second is Judah's failure to accept so many of Ephriam as believers in
Yeshua as the promised Messiah. As non Jewish believers in Yeshua we are
banned from returning to the land. My prayer is that the time is near for
Judah to accept us back into the land as brothers without asking us to give
up our Messiah. We long to return home.
Yair, we are so greatful for your ministry and for recognising that we are a
part of Israel. We are waiting for the day when we will be allowed to

4. Demographic Growth Rate of Palestinians Exaggerated
Subject: Column One: The demographic bomb is a dud

Caroline Glick, THE JERUSALEM POST Jan. 14, 2005
Brief Extract Only:
The average of the last two scenarios, which corrected for the Palestinians
living abroad and were based on base populations comprised of ICBS
Palestinian population survey projections from the 1990s and Palestinian
voting records in 1996 and 2004, brought the final projected number of
Palestinians in Gaza, Judea and Samaria to 2.42 million - nearly a third
less than the 3.83 million figure currently being used.

The study, which has been accepted by prominent American demographers Dr.
Nicholas Eberstadt and Murray Feshbach, shows that contrary to common
wisdom, the Jewish majority west of the Jordan River has remained stable
since 1967. In 1967 Jews made up 64.1 percent of the overall population and
in 2004 they made up 59.5 percent. Inside Israel proper, including
Jerusalem, Jews make up 80 percent of the population.

The entire 117-page report can be accessed on-line at Given that it shows that the government's current
policies are based in large part on an uncritical acceptance of fraudulent
data whose purpose was to demoralize us into capitulating to our post-modern
foe, hopefully Olmert and Sharon will take a look at it.

5. Most Important Research in Our Generation Still Largely Unappreciated.
Proof that the Lost Ten Tribes migrated largely to Western Nations and that their
descendants are now to be found amongst the populations of these nations
has been provided by the Brit-Am Organization.
The evidence shows that the populations of North America, Britain, and related nations are dominated by descendants of Joseph.
Proofs adduced by Brit-Am are irrefutable. Many of these proofs have only come to light
in recent years.
The implications of these studies could affect entire nations as well as numerous individual families
in these nations and outside of them.
Unfortunately since support and encouragement of Brit-Am has not exactly been overwhelming
the realization of these vital truths has been experienced by only a small minority of those
who should be concerned with the matter.
Brit-Am is now issuing a call requesting funds and offerings in order to allow the spreading of this
information. It should be considered the duty of every person of Israelite descent to do what they can to assist

1. French Staged False Death of Palestinian Child
Guyssen News
20:38 ''France 2, a state TV channel, is continuing to elude an impartial investigation on the film of the death of Mohamed Al Dura, in the beginning of the Oslo war. And this, in spite of proof showing that this scene was stage managed'', writes Israelnationalnews. (Guysen.Israכl.News)
"Shortly after the broadcasting of this film, symbol of the alleged brutality of the Israeli soldiers, a Tsahal drone equipped with satellite photographic means, showed the quasi-impossibility for Tsahal to hit this child..." Numerous people died in the name of this child because of these pictures", said Stephane Juffa, editor in chief of the Mena (Metula News Agency).

Arutz-7 News: Thursday, January 20, 2005

Despite Evidence, French TV Still Refuses Al-Dura Probe
Inside Israel
French government-run TV continues to avoid an impartial investigation of the video it broadcast of the killing of 12-year-old Muhammad Al-Dura, during the first weeks of the Oslo War.
The clip, of an Arab boy and his father cowering behind a barrel during a gun battle between Arab terrorists and IDF soldiers, became famous when Arab sources claimed it showed Israelis killing a scared boy. Al-Dura’s image became a symbol of the supposed brutality of Israel and the IDF. A scene from the Al-Dura video was even displayed prominently in the background as Jewish Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was murdered by Muslim kidnappers in Pakistan.

Evidence shows, however, that he was not killed by Israeli fire. Following the broadcast of the video, the IDF, using drone and satellite photography, demonstrated the near-impossibility of Al-Dura having been hit by an IDF bullet. Independent media analysts in Israel, Germany and France claim to have conclusive evidence proving the entire incident was staged.

Calls for an investigation into the event, however, which are supported by at least one member of the French parliament, have been met with complete refusal to cooperate on the part of France’s Channel 2.

This is hardly the first time the veracity of the Al-Dura incident has been challenged. In 2002, an extensive German documentary produced by Esther Shapira concluded that in view of the positions of the child and the IDF posts, it was more probable that the boy was hit by an Arab bullet.

According to France's Channel 2 Television reporter Charles Enderlin, Al-Dura was killed and his father was severely wounded by Israeli bullets. Enderlin was not present during the incident; French television hired an Arab cameraman from the PA, Talal Abu Rahma, who was the only cameraman to record the shooting of Al-Dura

In a rare move, the state-run TV station decided to distribute the video clip as a 55-second story to TV stations worldwide at no cost. The station justified this by saying it did not want to make money on such a sad incident.

Philippe Karsenty, who heads Media-Ratings, a French media watchdog agency, has also examined the full 27-minute raw footage of the video and come to the conclusion that the entire report was fabricated. "The report is false. I've seen the elements of France 2's report and it is clear that it is a fake," said Karsenty. "It is clear that it was staged."

Karsenty told that among the elements he found proving the report a forgery was a director ordering retakes of scenes, a number of ambulances appearing within two seconds in an unedited shot after an Arab is said to be wounded, the child hoisting himself up on his elbows after he is said to be dead and no blood or bullet wounds on any of the victims.

Karsenty said he met with French officials and provided them with proof that the tape was a hoax, but has not yet received an official response.

Stephane Juffa, editor of the Israeli Metula News Agency, told that he and two other colleagues carried out a thorough investigation, including scores of interviews and scene-by-scene analyses of the video and other material filmed in 2000. "The child we see during the shooting is not the same child that we see in the morgue in other footage, who has bullet wounds and is identified as Mohammed Al-Dura by hospital staff," said Juffa. He added that though he had no information about how the child in the morgue was killed, doctors there said the boy arrived hours before the actual Netzarim gun battle described in the video took place.

Roland Blum, a member of the French Assembly, has asked France’s communications minister to investigate France 2's evidence that Israeli soldiers shot and killed Mohammed Al-Dura, but has not yet received a response. "This has become an important issue because of the emotions that France 2's very serious accusations against the Israeli army have aroused," said Blum. "This type of information, particularly when the reporter wasn't even at the scene, must be checked carefully before it is used as an affirmation and an accusation."

In 2000, when France 2 TV made international headlines with its exclusive video, Enderlin said he had 27 minutes of raw footage, most of which was withheld from the public because France 2 insisted it wanted to spare viewers the images of the dying child's agony.

Juffa claimed France 2 has recently, unofficially, admitted to three journalists that the cameraman, the sole eyewitness to the shooting despite the presence of many other cameramen, had changed his story. The cameraman, according to Juffa, retracted his sworn testimony about the child being killed by Israeli soldiers and about the raw footage showing the child in agony before death.

Juffa believes France 2 should immediately suspend the two journalists behind the report until a full and neutral investigation is completed. "We are not judges but journalists," he said, "but we believe that the people who staged this scene should be brought to justice because their pictures have caused many deaths by becoming a symbol of the intifada and the Israeli Army's violence. Many people have died in the name of Mohammed Al-Dura because of these pictures."

Juffa said he was surprised to find that instead of investigating the video, France 2 responded by attacking him. He said that France 2 has accused him of being a negationist, a revisionist, an extremist and a member of Israel's ultra right-wing.

"I am not part of the extreme right-wing, but that accusation does not answer or excuse the forgery," said Juffa.

Both Juffa and Karsenty said French media have united in refusing to publicize the evidence, by pressuring journalists who fear for their careers in a country where most television and radio journalism jobs are in the state media.

The only response to the mounting evidence against the infamous video has been the non-punitive reprimand of the French government's media regulatory council. The council published a mild statement in December asking French television to identify sources and exercise more caution in reporting on international conflicts in the future.

2. France in Identity Crisis?
Self-doubt leaves French feeling down in the mouth

IT IS official: the French are a nation of depressed pessimists, wracked with self-doubt and unable to see a positive future.

This gloomy portrait of the current state of Gallic morale - or rather the lack of it - was made public yesterday in a damning report by France’s prefects, the country’s top administrators.

"The French no longer believe in anything," the report said. "That is the reason that the situation is relatively calm, for they believe that it is not even worthwhile expressing their opinions or trying to be heard any more."

The country’s 100 prefects went on to use the words "lifelessness", "resignation", "anxiety" and "pessimism" to describe the attitudes they believe prevail in France today.

The report, which is dated December 2004 but has only just been made public, would appear to be contradicted by the three days of strikes launched by public sector workers this week.

However, analysts point to the fact that disillusionment and apathy are so great that not even France’s formerly powerful unions were able to predict the turnout for the strike. Opinion polls show that 65 per cent of the French support the strikers, leading observers to say that the country is showing its discontent by proxy via the strikers.

"It’s a fact: France and the French are pessimists," said Alain Duhamel, a respected French commentator.

He said: "The French doubt themselves and worry about the future. They do so more than the citizens of neighbouring countries, even when those neighbouring countries are doing less well than we are and have a more negative future ahead.

"France has been anxious about its future, about its way of life, for the last 30 years, ever since the employment crisis and doubts about identity, ever since the absence of clear perspectives and collective projects."

Politicians agree that the French are particularly upset about the drop in their purchasing power, which has led to strong group pessimism even if individual confidence is quite high.

This fear for the country’s economic future is illustrated by the fact that the French are among the most assiduous savers in the world, putting aside an average of 16 per cent of their income.

Pierre Taribo, writing in L’Est Rיpublicain, agreed with Mr Duhamel. He wrote: "One is forced to say that the French no longer believe in very much. Confronted with the reality of an open economy, clearly showing less and less appetite for politics, they are disillusioned and doubt everything from Chirac to the government and the Right, which is accused of every ill, to the Left, which has no projects, and the unions, whose activism no longer inspires a reflex of blind adhesion."

All this gloom could have serious repercussions. Jacques Chirac’s centre-right government fears that widespread pessimism could have a negative effect on the referendum on the European Union constitution scheduled for later this year.

The prefects’ report also warned that it played into the hands of the extreme right-wing National Front party.

Uri Avnery

King George

When King George V died, we got a day off from school as a sign of
mourning. Palestine was then a part of the British Empire, which ruled
the country under a League of Nations mandate. To this very day, a
central street in Tel-Aviv, not far from my home, bears the name of King
George V was followed (after a brief interlude) by George VI, who
was until recently the last George in our life. Now we have a new King
George, not British but American.

The relationship between the United States and Israel is difficult
to define. The USA has no official mandate over our country. It is not a
normal alliance between two nations. Neither is it a relationship between
a satellite and the master country.
Some people say, only half in jest, that the USA is an Israeli
colony. And indeed, in many respects it looks like that. President Bush
dances to Ariel Sharon's tune. Both Houses of Congress are totally
subservient to the Israeli right-wing - much more so than the Knesset. It
has been said that if the pro-Israeli lobby were to sponsor a resolution
on Capitol Hill calling for the abolition of the Ten Commandments, both
Houses of Congress would adopt it overwhelmingly. Every year Congress
confirms the payment of a massive tribute to Israel.
But others assert the reverse: that Israel is an American colony.
And indeed, that is also true in many respects. It is unthinkable for the
Israeli government to refuse a clear-cut request by the President of the
United States. America forbids Israel to sell an expensive intelligence-
gathering plane to China? Israel cancels the sale. America forbids a
large-scale military action, as happened last week in Gaza? No action.
America wants the Israeli economy to be managed according to American
precepts? No problem: an American (circumcised, to be sure) has just been
appointed as Governor of the Central Bank of Israel.
As a matter of fact, both versions are right: The USA is an Israeli
colony and Israel is an American colony. The relationship between the two
countries is a symbiosis, a term defined by the Oxford Dictionary as "an
association of two organisms living attached to each other or one within
the other" (from the Greek words for "living" and "together".)
Much has already been said about the origins of this symbiosis.
American Christian Zionism preceded the founding of the Jewish Zionist
organization. The American myth is almost identical with the Zionist
Israeli myth, both in content and symbolism. (The settlers fleeing from
persecution in their homelands, an empty country, pioneers conquering the
wilderness, the savage natives, etc.) Both are countries of immigration,
with all that this implies for good or ill. Both governments believe that
their interests coincide. On Independence Day in Israel, many American
flags are to be seen next to the Israeli ones - a phenomenon that is
without parallel in the world.
The inauguration of George Bush last week therefore had a special
significance for Israel. The state-controlled TV channel broadcast it
live. In many respects, the President of the United States is also the
King of Israel.

1. Remembering the British Anti-Slavery Movement

January 17, 2005
The New York Times
How the British Inspired Dr. King's Dream

[Limited Extracts Only]

Long before Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, another major nation had been the first to end slavery in the territory it controlled: Britain. And unlike American slavery, essentially brought to an end through the Civil War, slavery in the British Empire ended as the result of a huge popular movement - whose early start, size and persistence dwarfed its counterpart in America. It's a story most in this country have long forgotten, although several generations of American slaves and their descendants knew it well.

The British antislavery movement burst into being in 1787. Up to that point, few people in England had spoken out on the subject. But within months after a firebrand organizer named Thomas Clarkson convened a 12-man abolition committee at a Quaker bookstore in London, agitation swept the country. Within a few years, more than 300,000 Britons were boycotting sugar, the major product of the British West Indian slave plantations. Nearly 400,000 signed petitions to Parliament demanding an end to the slave trade. Olaudah Equiano, a brilliant former slave, wrote a best-selling autobiography and embarked on a five-year speaking tour of the British Isles. Thomas Clarkson rode 35,000 miles on horseback, gathering witnesses for parliamentary hearings and setting up local antislavery committees. In 1792, the House of Commons became the first national legislative body in the world to vote to end the slave trade.

That ban, however, did not become law, because the House of Lords balked. Then Britain and France began two decades of war, and wars are always bad for progressive movements. Still, the abolitionists did not abandon hope. In the early 1800's Clarkson toured the country again, and in 1807 both houses of Parliament banned the slave trade.

With the death rate on plantations in the British West Indies very high, the abolitionists hoped that cutting off the supply of new slaves would quickly end British slavery itself. When this did not happen, Clarkson - now in his 60's - spent 13 months crisscrossing the country again, this time by stagecoach, in 1823 and 1824.

The next 10 years saw several new rounds of organizing: large petitions, great meetings, skillfully coordinated lobbying, a rare street demonstration and, to widespread male shock, the emergence of outspoken women abolitionists. In addition, there was the added pressure of a large, barely contained slave revolt in Jamaica. Finally, after months of acrimonious debate, in 1833 Parliament voted to phase out slavery throughout the empire. When freedom for all came, just after midnight on Aug. 1, 1838, a group of former slaves who were gathered in a Baptist church in Falmouth, Jamaica, placed a whip, chains and an iron punishment collar in a coffin, and buried it in the churchyard. Emancipation Day has been celebrated ever since.

PMW director briefs foreign ambassadors in Knesset
By Itamar Marcus & Barbara Crook

At the request of Diaspora Affairs Minister Natan Sharansky, PMW director
Itamar Marcus today briefed a group of 80 ambassadors and diplomats in the
Israeli Knesset about PMW's latest report on Palestinian Authority (PA)
promotion of genocide against Jews. This event comes a day after Marcus and
Minister Sharansky held two joint news conferences to present the report to
the Israeli and foreign media.

The report, Kill a Jew - Go To Heaven, written by Marcus and PMW associate
director Barbara Crook, examines the way in which the leadership of the PA
has taught, and continues to teach, an ideology of virulent hatred of Jews
and Israel that mandates the killing of Jews as a religious obligation. The
report documents how the PA has systematically built a three-tiered case
against Jewish existence, much as a prosecutor would build a legal case in
a court of law to demand a death sentence. At the briefing, Marcus
presented many examples from the PA-controlled print and broadcast media,
including numerous video excerpts, to show the systematic way in which this
hatred of Jews is promoted by the PA's religious, political and academic
elites, and taught through cultural, educational, religious and even
entertainment frameworks.

Click here to see full report on the PMW web site.

A fundamental message broadcast in sermons, academic discourse and even
children's shows, according to report co-author Itamar Marcus, is that "the
Jews are an evil force, and it's inherent to the Jews, and therefore they
have to be killed."

Sharon: Allies Could Have Bombed Auschwitz Tracks
Jewish World
[] The Knesset held a special session today marking the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz Nazi death camp.
The session began with the recital of the E-l Malei Rachamim memorial prayer, and Prime Minister Sharon, Knesset Speaker Ruby Rivlin, and Diaspora Affairs Minister Natan Sharansky addressed the Knesset.

Invited guests included Holocaust survivors, Yad Vashem officials and foreign representatives.

Excerpts from PM Sharon's speech:

"The allies knew of the annihilation of the Jews. They knew and did nothing.
On April 19, 1943, the Bermuda Conference gathered, with the participation of representatives from Britain and the United States, to discuss saving the Jews of Europe. In fact, the participants did everything in their power to avoid dealing with the problem. All the suggestions for rescue operations that the Jewish organizations presented were rejected. They simply did not want to deal with it.

"The Bermuda Conference was nothing more than a continuation of the shocking story of the 'Ship of the Damned' - the Saint Louis - which set sail from Germany in 1939 with 1,000 Jews who succeeded in escaping from the Third Reich on board. The passengers knocked on the doors of Cuba and ports in the eastern United States, but were refused sanctuary and were forced to return to the shores of Europe. Most of them were murdered in the death camps.

"The leadership of the British Mandate displayed the same obtuseness and insensitivity by locking the gates to Israel to Jewish refugees who sought a haven in the Land of Israel. Thus were rejected the requests of the 769 passengers of the ship "Struma" who escaped from Europe - and all but one [of the passengers] found their death at sea.

"Throughout the war, nothing was done to stop the annihilation [of the Jewish people]. When, in the summer of 1944, the mass deportations in Hungary were carried out, the allies did not bomb the train tracks which led to Auschwitz from Hungary, nor the murder facilities in Birkenau, despite the fact that they had the ability to do so. Allied planes attacked targets near Auschwitz, but they refused to bomb the camp itself, in which 10,000 Jews were murdered daily. Thus were 618,000 Jews annihilated in a number of weeks - the Jews of Hungary.

"Mr. Speaker, the sad and horrible conclusion is that no one cared that Jews were being murdered...

"The State of Israel learned [the] lesson - and since its establishment, it has done its utmost to defend itself and its citizens, and provide a safe haven for any Jew, wherever he may be. We know that we can trust no one but ourselves.

"This phenomenon - of Jews defending themselves and fighting back - is an anathema in the side of the new anti-Semites. Legitimate steps of self-defense which Israel takes in its war against Palestinian terror - actions which any sovereign state is obligated to undertake to ensure the security of its citizens - are presented by those who hate Israel as aggressive, Nazi-like steps.

"...These days, the generation which was witness to the horrors is disappearing, and ignorance is increasing. Fewer people around the world have heard of the Holocaust or are aware of what happened in Auschwitz, and the manifestations of anti-Semitism are on the rise. 60 years after the liberation of Auschwitz, the evil which gave rise to the horror still exists - and still threatens us.

"...Israel is a very small country, blessed with talented and courageous people. However, it must always be remembered that this is the only place in the world where we, the Jews, have the right and the capability to defend ourselves, by ourselves. And we will never relinquish this. It is our historic responsibility. It is my personal historic responsibility."

Backing up Sharon's claims that the Allies could have bombed the train tracks leading to Auschwitz is none other than former World War II bomber and U.S. Presidential candidate (in 1972) George McGovern. Rafael Medoff and former Rep. Stephen Solarz of the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies , in an op-ed published by Knight Ridder, wrote yesterday that McGovern met with interviewers from Israel Television and the Wyman Institute, and "recalled his days as the pilot of a B-24 Liberator in the 455th Bomb Group, targeting German synthetic-oil plants in occupied Poland - many of them within a few miles of the Auschwitz gas chambers."

"After the Allies gained control of the Foggia Air Base in Italy in December 1943," they wrote, "Auschwitz was for the first time within striking distance of Allied planes. In June 1944, U.S. diplomats and Jewish leaders in Switzerland received a detailed report about Auschwitz, prepared by two escapees. The escapees described the mass-murder facilities and drew diagrams showing where the gas chambers and crematoria were located. As a result, Jewish organizations repeatedly asked the Roosevelt administration to order the bombing of Auschwitz and the railroad lines leading to the camp. The War Department rejected the proposals as 'impracticable,' saying such raids would have required 'considerable diversion' of planes needed for the war effort... Ironically, military resources were diverted for various other nonmilitary reasons... Gen. George Patton even diverted U.S. troops to rescue 150 Lipizzaner horses in Austria..."

Medoff and Solarz write that McGovern called the 'diversion' argument just "a rationalization." In the summer and fall of 1944, they write, "the Allies repeatedly bombed the oil refineries near Auschwitz - at a time when hundreds of Jews were being gassed daily in the camp. On Dec. 26, for instance, McGovern's squadron dropped 50 tons of bombs on oil facilities in Monowitz, an industrial section of Auschwitz, located less than five miles from the site where 1.6 million people were murdered from 1942 to 1944."

McGovern's conclusion: "There is no question we should have attempted... to go after Auschwitz. There was a pretty good chance we could have blasted those rail lines off the face of the earth, which would have interrupted the flow of people to those death chambers, and we had a pretty good chance of knocking out those gas ovens... Franklin Roosevelt was a great man, and he was my political hero. But I think he made two great mistakes in World War II: [the internment of Japanese-Americans, and the decision] not to go after Auschwitz. ... G-d forgive us for that tragic miscalculation."

According to the Bible ten out of the twelve tribes of Israel split away(1-Kings 12:19), formed their own kingdom of "Israel" 1-Kings 12:20) and were exiled by the Assyrians (2-Kings 17:18) . They forget their identity (Hosea 1:9 7:8 Isaiah 49:21) and became the Lost Ten Tribes. In the future they will re-unite with the Jews (Ezekiel 37, Isaiah 11:13 Jeremiah 3:18) of "Judah" but until then they have a role of their own to fulfill. They were destined to be situated at the continental extremities of the earth such as North America, the British Isles, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa )Deuteronomy 33:13 Isaiah 24:16 26:15 41:8-9 49:6), to be the richest) Genesis 27:28 49:25 Deuteronomy 33:13-16 Hosea 2:8), and most powerful (Numbers 24:8-7 Micah 5:7-9) nations on earth and to control major international strategic bases (Genesis 22:16-17 24:60).

item 3. Sharon: Allies Could Have Bombed Auschwitz Tracks:
Prime Minister Sharon said:
<<The allies knew of the annihilation of the Jews. They knew and did nothing.
<<On April 19, 1943, the Bermuda Conference gathered, with the participation of representatives from Britain and the United States, to discuss saving the Jews of Europe. In fact, the participants did everything in their power to avoid dealing with the problem. All the suggestions for rescue operations that the Jewish organizations presented were rejected. They simply did not want to deal with it.

<<"The Bermuda Conference was nothing more than a continuation of the shocking story of the 'Ship of the Damned' - the Saint Louis - which set sail from Germany in 1939 with 1,000 Jews who succeeded in escaping from the Third Reich on board. The passengers knocked on the doors of Cuba and ports in the eastern United States, but were refused sanctuary and were forced to return to the shores of Europe. Most of them were murdered in the death camps.

"The leadership of the British Mandate displayed the same obtuseness and insensitivity by locking the gates to Israel to Jewish refugees who sought a haven in the Land of Israel. Thus were rejected the requests of the 769 passengers of the ship "Struma" who escaped from Europe - and all but one [of the passengers] found their death at sea.

Thus were 618,000 Jews annihilated in a number of weeks - the Jews of Hungary.

"Mr. Speaker, the sad and horrible conclusion is that no one cared that Jews were being murdered...

What Prime Minister Sharon said is true but it must be qualified and considered in the light of additional information.
In our book "The Tribes" we briefly discussed most of the above issues
and the relevant extracts are worth considering.

2. Extracts from "The Tribes. The Israelite Origins of Western Peoples" pp.9-13
The Attitude of the Peoples to the Holocaust
Britain (more than any other nation apart from France) had accepted a good number of Jewish refugees but then decided to drastically reduce admission. Economic reasons, as well as anti-Semitism or the fear of arousing it, were among the reasons for these restrictions. Open or concealed hatred of the Jews was often a motivating factor all over the world in denying the Jews refuge. Every country on earth closed its doors against Jewish refugees. This policy continued during the Second World War to a degree. Some of the officials responsible knew that the results of this policy meant death for those of Jewish descent who fell into German hands but others were not so aware. Despite all this it is doubtful if anything really could have been done on a large scale other than defeat the Germans which is what was done. Claims to the contrary appear to be illusionary departures from the reality as it then was.
Claims against the Allies include the following: 1. They did not accept Jewish refugees before the War. 2. They did not bomb Auschwitz and the other camps. 3. They did not warn the Germans that atrocities would be punished. 4. They did not "barter" Jewish lives for goods when the Germans offered to do so towards the end of the War. 5. They closed the doors to Palestine. Some of these claims have something in them and some do not.
Concerning (1) they were not aware that the Germans were about to conquer Europe and kill all the Jews they could find. Perhaps they should have been but they were not and neither was anybody else, including most of the Jews in Europe itself. Before the War Jewish refugees from Germany usually managed to find refuge in other countries. Those who went to places that the Germans later conquered were killed but no-one foresaw this eventuality at the time.
2. Bombing Auschwitz and the camps (if indeed it was possible) underestimates the determination of the Germans to kill Jews at all costs and however they could.
3. Warnings not to harm the Jews were in fact issued in some cases but it was also feared that their results could be counter-productive. The conditions were those of total warfare and antisemitism was actually popular especially in Eastern Europe. In Hungary Roosevelt threatened to bomb Budapest if the persecution of the Jews did not cease and this threat influenced the Hungarian Government to lessen the persecution. Wallenstein of Sweden and Lotz of Switzerland in Hungary saved numerous Jews and they were acting on behalf of the USA in coordination with their own governments.
4. There was no real possibility of "bartering" Jewish lives for goods. Hitler would never have allowed it. Suggestions to the contrary by the Nazis appear to have been part of a German trick to sow discord between the Allies and Russia who already suspected the Allies of wanting to see Russia broken. The Germans were killing Jews even at great expense to their own war efforts.
5. The British restricted Jewish entry to Palestine because they feared Arab reactions. Jews who illegally attempted to reach Palestine were either allowed to stay in the Land of Israel or interned on Cyprus. A different policy could have saved more Jewish lives but how many is uncertain and those responsible were not necessarily aware of this possibility at the time. The measure of hostility towards the Jews from other peoples at that time is not appreciated. At the beginning of the War Turkey had instituted anti-Jewish measures but the usa pressured her to desist from them. Spain was neutral and allowed the entrance of refugees though at one stage she considered handing them over to Germany. A thinly veiled threat from Churchill caused the Spanish to think again. Things were done on behalf of the Jews. It may not have been enough but it was something and it was done by those who themselves were fighting for their own existence. Things were done and they were done mainly by the Western Allies whom we believe to constitute the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. In the cases of not-totally Axis-dominated nations such as Hungary, Turkey, and Spain the Allies did exert effective pressure on behalf of the Jewish people.
The Germans and Austrians had began the Second World War and conquered most of continental Europe. They proceeded to exterminate the Jewish people, men, women, and children. They were helped to murder Jews by Ukrainians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Romanians, Croatians, and others. More than six million Jews were killed. In Poland some people rescued Jews, though the anti-German Polish resistance movements themselves frequently also murdered Jews fleeing from the Germans. This was done as a matter of policy and in some cases had priority over the struggle against Germany. After the War Poles who had helped rescue Jews often had to keep it secret lest their fellow citizens murder them or their kin4. This was not the case in Germany. The consistency of the German attitude was not always a conscious one. Nevertheless most Germans to some degree accepted the Nazi aims. In the Bulgarian parts of Bulgaria-proper the Jews were protected though the Jews of Bulgarian-Macedonia were handed over to German forces for extermination. In Western Europe the Danes, Belgians, Dutch, and French, at great risk to themselves, often helped Jews escape or gave them shelter, though in some of these countries the Germans had helpers in murdering the Jewish people. The Italians often quite heroically helped save Jews yet had allied themselves to Hitler and worked for a Nazi victory.

The British Saved Mankind and
Delivered the Jews from Destruction!
The British remained unconquered and the only determined unbeaten opponent of the Germans, from the beginning of the War until its end, was Great Britain and Her Dominions. At one stage Britain (and her "daughter" Dominions) stood alone against the victorious conquering Germans. The British could have made a separate peace on favorable terms with Germany but even if the British Government had wanted to (and it did not) the British people would not accept anything less than continued struggle for complete victory. The anti-Jewish policies of the Nazis even from before the beginning of the War was the major single factor in turning British public opinion against Germany5. The usa actively supported Britain on the material level turning itself into one vast hinterland-producing area for the British effort. The USA and Russia after being attacked joined Britain against Germany. Ultimately Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Canada, together with the USA and USSR, defeated Germany and the German allies, Italy, Croatia, Hungary, Rumania, and the Baltic States. Despite everything, those Jews who did survive owe their lives, in a sense, to the Allies' victory.

The Betrayal of the Jews
Both before the War and during it, it may have been possible to save the lives of a more Jewish refugees than actually were saved if there had been somewhere to settle them in. France, Britain and the usa received many and most other places very little. Even Britain and the usa did not receive as many as they could have. Australia and South Africa closed their doors. After the war these same places (Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the USA, Britain, etc.) were often enthusiastic (and at other times at least willing) in re-settling millions of non-Jewish refugees and immigrants from Russia, the Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Germany, Italy, Pakistan, Africa, Asia, and so on. From reading accounts and official reports concerning the fate of the Jews during the Holocaust years when the Jews needed to be helped an unmistakable impression is received. Some of the authorities in potential host countries would rather have left the Jews to their fate than help them, especially if help meant accepting them into their own countries6. Jews were not welcome (to say the least) in several cases. This throws a serious question on the degree of Israelite ancestry claimable by the said nations. It does not nullify such claims but it means that they must be qualified and the presence of non-Israelite elements existing alongside the Israelite ones seriously taken into consideration! On the other hand some effective policies were undertaken. The positive actions on behalf of the Jews were nearly always due to people identified in this work as coming from "Lost Ten Tribes" Israelite stock. In France people of Protestant Huguenot descent were especially active in doing all that they could to rescue Jews and whole villages participated at great risk to themselves. The fact that the war against the Nazi evil was fought, maintained, and eventually won was also due mainly to people identified by us as descended from Israelites. Despite everything, one aspect of the whole War effort had the goal to ensure Jewish survival.

Reference 6. See for instance Arthur D. Morse, "While 6 Million Died. A Chronicle of American Apathy" by 1967, 1968. see also David S. Wyman, "The Abandonment of the Jews" by 1985. For a contrary opinion consider the following from William D. Rubinstein, "The Myth of Rescue: Why the Democracies Could Not Have Saved More Jews From The Nazis", 1997, p. x:
“The argument of The Myth of Rescue is that no Jew who perished during the Nazi Holocaust could have been saved by any action which the Nazis could have taken at the time, given what was actually known about the Holocaust, what was actually proposed at the time and what was realistically possible. If there are any exceptions at all to this statement, their numbers may be measured in the dozens or hundreds rather than some higher figure. All of the many studies which criticize the Allies (and the Jewish communities of the democracies) for having failed to rescue Jews during the holocaust are inaccurate and misleading, their arguments illogical and ahistorical.”
Rubinstein points out that the Nazis were implacably determined to destroy the Jews and nothing much could have been done to stop them. Rubinstein has a point of view that should be considered along with the other factors. On some points he may be mistaken but on the whole he appears to be historically correct. The depth of the German and East European determination to wipe out the Jewish race is not sufficiently realized. Some of the claimed possibilities for saving Jews were in practice non-existent. Bombing the concentration camps if it had have been possible and if it had have been done may have even speeded up the extermination process!
-cf. Robert Payne, "The Life & Death of Adolf Hitler", usa, 1973, p.470: "One day in 1942 Hitler told Himmler that it was not enough for the Jews simply to die; they must die in agony. What was the best way to prolong their agony? Himmler turned the problem over to his advisors who concluded that a slow, agonizing death could be brought about by placing Jewish prisoners in freight cars with dehydrated calcium oxide - quicklime -, which produced excruciating burns. The advisors estimated that it would take four days for the prisoners to die, and for that time the freight cars could be left standing on some forgotten siding. It was not necessary to send people to the extermination camps: the freight cars were all that was needed. Finally, it was decided that the freight cars should be used in addition to the extermination camps".
Albert Speer, "Inside the Third Reich", New York, 1971, p.391:
“Yet hatred of the Jews was Hitler's central conviction: sometimes it even seems to me that everything else was merely camouflage for this real motivating factor...Hitler was even prepared to risk his plans of conquest for the sake of that mania for extermination...I can still recall the astonishment with which I read the final sentence of his testament. In the midst of an apocalyptic doom it attempted to commit us all to a miserable hatred of the Jews.”

Footnote © The most traumatic event in this regard was probably the "Struma" affair. The Struma was an unseaworthy boat into which 769 Jewish refugees had been crammed. They were fleeing from Romania where the local populace had turned almost "cannibalistic" in its treatment of the Jews. The boat docked near Istanbul and the passengers requested entry visas to Palestine but were refused. The Turks then cast the boat adrift and refused help even though the British had relented and agreed to take in the children. The boat was then sunk by a Soviet submarine in February, 1942. Only two of the passengers reached shore one of whom was shot by the Turks and the other survived. At the time it was not known that the Soviets were responsible for sinking the ship nor was the attitude of the Turks publicized. In the eyes of many Jews in Palestine the British were responsible as in some way they may well have been. For details see, "Death on the Black Sea. The Untold Story of the Struma and World War II's Holocaust at Sea", Douglas Frantz and Catherine Collins, USA, 2003.

Sharansky: PA promotes genocide
By Hilary Leila Krieger

At a press conference timed to coincide with events marking the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, Diaspora Affairs Minister Natan Sharansky will on Tuesday assert that the Palestinian Authority, even under new chairman Mahmoud Abbas, is engaged in the "promotion of genocide" against the Jewish people.

The "Kill a Jew Go to Heaven" presentation, compiled by Palestinian Media Watch, an Israel-based organization that monitors incitement in Palestinian society, and distributed under Sharansky's auspices, accuses the Palestinian media of dehumanizing Jews similar to ways the Nazis did.

A fundamental message broadcast in sermons, academic discourse and even children's shows, according to report co-author Itamar Marcus, is that "the Jews are an evil force, and it's inherent to the Jews, and therefore they have to be killed."

In the run-up to the PA election on January 9, Abbas met with the head of the Palestinian Broadcasting Authority and asked him to check all programs aired on PA television to prevent the broadcast of inciting material. Since then, Marcus said that nationalistic programming calling for violence against Israel has decreased somewhat, but that anti-Semitic rhetoric has remained unabated.

He pointed to January 14, when he said an imam gave a sermon declaring, "The days of the pilgrimage to Mecca remind the Muslim of the connection to his history and remind him of his past glory and the lowliness of the Jews, who today rule the world; how Muhammad expelled them from Medina in retribution for their actions and their hostility and their corruption, and not on false charges, not unjustly. No, it was retribution for their hostility toward Islam."

It is important to document this phenomenon, he said, because many people view the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as centered on political issues, when the Palestinians have tied redemption to killing Jews. "It's not connected to borders, it's not connected to compromise, and no compromise will be reached [once]it's a battle of God against the Jews."

"As in Nazi Germany, there is an entire 'culture of hatred' in Palestinian society today, from textbooks to crossword puzzles, from day camps to TV music videos," Sharansky charged in a statement issued by his office ahead of the press conference. "Calling for the murder of Jews, as Jews, is the end result."

The presentation comes ahead of Israel's National Day Against Anti-Semitism on Thursday and the same day's ceremonies at Auschwitz. It will be made available in English as well as Hebrew to engage the international community.

"The whole world has to be aware of anti-Semitism, because it isn't just the problem of the Jews. It's the problem of any democratic society," a Sharansky aide said. "The world has to understand what we are dealing with. It's not only whether there was a bombing yesterday or not. If you don't change the atmosphere in books or on TV, it won't be enough."

Top Secret American Military Installations in Israel
Inside Israel
[] A new book by an American military journalist and commentator reveals the extent of the US military presence on Israeli soil.
“Code Names,” by William M. Arkin, exposes information about at least five US Army bases at secret locations throughout the Jewish State, including one at Ben Gurion Airport and another in Herzliya Pituah. The book also provides a long list of code names describing joint military operations between Israel and America.

Arkin is an independent journalist and military commentator for NBC and a former intelligence analyst for US ground forces. A front-page story in “The New York Times,” based on one of the book’s revelations has given the book broad publicity and granted it wide legitimacy.

Late Republican Senator Jesse Helms used to call Israel “America’s aircraft carrier in the Middle East,” when explaining why the US viewed Israel as such a strategic ally, saying that the military foothold in the region offered by the Jewish State alone justified the military aid that the US grants Israel every year. The new revelations also act to weaken the argument for Israeli policy decisions based on "American pressure."

Arkin claims that the officially "non-existent" sites across Israel contain $500 million worth of ammunition the United States keeps in Israel for wartime contingencies. The bases, called Sites 51, 53, 54, 55 and 56 don't appear on any maps and their specific locations are classified and highly sensitive.

“It's not just munitions,” Arkin wrote in the Washington Post before the release of his book. “The United States has ‘prepositioned’ vehicles, military equipment, even a 500-bed hospital, for US Marines, Special Forces, and Air Force fighter and bomber aircraft at at least six sites in Israel, all part of what is antiseptically described as ‘US-Israel strategic cooperation.’"

Israel is not the only country in the region to host US military bases, though. There are American military facilities in Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and the Gulf states, as well.

3. Home Truths or Exaggerations? American Jews and the Holocaust
Subject: Re: Jerusalem News-338: Reply to Arik Sharon
Shalom Yair,

I agree America and the world could have done far more to prevent the Holocaust
or diminish its damage, but concur with former Israeli Parliament Member and
rabbi, Meir Kahane, who delivered a scathing indictment against AMERICAN JEWS
for their inaction! He questions why Jews should blame others for not doing
more when they were the most guilty of such woeful neglect! He proves American
Jewish leaders were trying to save their own skin, afraid to rock the boat and
became accomplices to the murder of their Jewish brethren in Europe. I
encourage all to read his book Uncomfortable Questions for Comfortable Jews,
available for free at

For Zion's Sake,

4. The Coming EarthQuake in Jerusalem
In "The Jeruslaem Post. In Jerusalem", January 28, 2005
the is an article, "If the walls come tumblin' down"
by Gail Lichtman.
The article says that while all of of Jerusalem is vulnerable the Old City and the neighborhoods on the
eastern (Mainly Arab) side are especially so "both because of the type of soil, which exacerbates the effects of earthquakes
and because of an abundance of old structures that can collapse and turn into death traps".
The last major earthquake was in 1926 registered 6.5 on the Richter Scale. It was centered around the Daima Bridge over the
River Jordan but caused extensive damage in the Jerusalem area.
"If an earthquake as struck a place one it is likely to strike there again".
A previous quake in 1837 wiped out 20 per cent of the population of Safed in the Upper Galilee. Its magnitude was 6.6.
Jerusalem is situated on the Jordan Valley Rift which is at a junction of two of the earth's continental plates and is particularly vulnerable.
Last Shabbat there was a very minor quake in the northern Jerusalem area that was not noticed by most of us.
It appears to not be a question of whether but rather of when.

1. Israel to Speed Immigration for Jews in Ethiopia
Extracts Only
Published: February 1, 2005

[]ERUSALEM, Jan. 31 - At least 15,000 Ethiopian Jews, many living in hovels near the Israeli Embassy in Addis Ababa, will be brought to Israel by the end of 2007 under an accelerated immigration process, the Israeli government said Monday.

The decision is intended to help settle a long-running question over the status of an Ethiopian community known as the Falash Mura.

Close to 100,000 Ethiopian Jews have immigrated to Israel since the mid-1980's, but for many years, Israel was unable to decide on how to deal with one specific group, the Falash Mura. The Falash Mura say they are descendants of Ethiopian Jews who converted to Christianity many years ago, often through coercion, but have resumed practicing Judaism.

During the 1990's, some Israeli authorities questioned the authenticity of the community's Jewish roots. Israeli officials also expressed concerns that they would be confronted by large numbers of impoverished Ethiopians claiming Jewish ancestry and seeking to immigrate.

Three years ago, the government sent a prominent rabbi to consider the case of the Falash Mura, and he reported solid evidence of their Jewish lineage. The government decided in February 2003 that all the Falash Mura who could document Jewish ancestry on their mother's side would be allowed into Israel.

About 15,000 to 20,000 Falash Mura are believed to fall into that category, according to the government and supporters of the Falash Mura. But Israel has been allowing only 300 to enter each month.

In Addis Ababa, thousands of the Falash Mura have moved into hovels on a hillside near the Israeli Embassy. Thousands more are in Gondar, in the north.

"We are grateful to God," Meles Mandefro, a Falash Mura, said in a telephone interview. "The whole community will be delighted when they hear this." Mr. Mandefro left his farmland and moved to Addis Ababa, where he has been waiting nearly a decade with his wife and five children. Many of their relatives are already in Israel.

2. Knesset to Honor Raoul Wallenberg of Sweden

[] The Knesset will mark the 60th anniversary of the disappearance of Raoul Wallenberg, who saved 100,000 Jews from the Nazis, with a special session on Tuesday.
Wallenberg was a Swedish diplomat in the early 1940's who is credited with saving over 100,000 Hungarian Jews by granting them visas and removing them from German deportations to the death camps. On Jan. 17, 1945, he was invited to meet with the Russians, who promptly arrested him; he was never seen again in the outside world.

UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan is married to Wallenberg's niece, who visited Israel in March 1998. Then-MK Alex Lubotsky showed her around, and later said, "I wanted to show my great appreciation for her uncle's activities. She was visibly moved by this, and when I told her of the many streets named after him in Israel and the like, she was excited to learn that her uncle was so recognized and appreciated in Israel."

Address by FM Shalom to Israel-British Chamber of Commerce - Tel Aviv
2 February 2005 (Foreign Ministry)

Extracts Only:
Israeli-British trade has been on an upward swing now for many
years, and in 2004 reached new heights. Britain today is Israel's third
largest trading partner behind the United States and Germany. Israeli
exports to Britain in 2004 reached almost 1.5 billion dollars - an increase
of 19 percent on the previous year - while imports from Britain stand today
at 2.5 billion dollars, an increase of 9 percent on 2003. Cooperation
between the Tel Aviv and London stock exchanges is growing and Israeli
companies are increasingly using London's capital markets to raise money for
their activities.

In 2004, 420 Israeli hi-tech companies raised almost
one and a half billion dollars in local and foreign venture capital, an
increase of 45 percent from the previous year, with much of this increase
coming from the London markets. Last year, five Israeli companies floated on
the London exchanges - a great achievement in itself - and I understand from
our Embassy in London, that perhaps twice as many Israeli companies are
scheduled to go public in London in 2005.

Israel sees Britain as a natural and close partner
in the effort to bring peace, security and prosperity to our people and to
the Middle East. Beyond our important trade and commercial relations, our
two countries share a common commitment to the values of democracy, human
rights, the rule of law and basic freedoms. We share the belief that these
things are worth promoting, and worth defending. Under the leadership of
Prime Minister Blair, Britain has been a strong advocate of Israel's right
to defend itself against terror. In this time, Britain's practical
contribution to security-related issues on the ground, has also grown.

Indeed, at the governmental level, despite some
differences of opinion, Israel and Britain have found in recent years a
common language which has allowed us to enhance and deepen our cooperation
in many important fields, to the mutual benefit of both countries. At the
same time, at the public level, Israel's standing in Britain is suffering.
Israel's enemies are making inroads in the natural British support for
Israel and our cause.

Britain has taken the lead in seeking to harness the necessary international support
for promoting Palestinian financial and security reforms, and establishing
effective Palestinian action against terror and incitement, and we welcome
this involvement. We look to Britain - a country which has shown more than
most, that it appreciated the dangers of terror and the need to combat
them - to take the lead in dealing with the danger posed by Hizbullah to
this positive agenda. We must all do everything in our power now, to
strengthen the moderates and weaken the extremists.

5. Arabs and Europe versus USA and Israel
NY Sun - Feb 07, 2005
The Brave New World of Eurabia
By Nidra Poller
Extracts Only

No, Eurabia does not mean a strong influx of Arab-Muslim immigrants into European countries, though it does include demographic input. Eurabia does not mean the European Union after Turkey has been admitted, though welcoming Turkey with its 80 million Muslim citizens, fruitful and multiplying, is part of the plan for Eurabia. Eurabia is an ambitious project of fusion between the E.U. and the Arab world, beginning with the Mediterranean rim countries, and with no end in sight.

In her recently published "Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis," the Egyptian born historian Bat Ye'or, a pioneer in the study of jihad, dhimmitude, and Eurabia, documents the system of secret conferences, negotiations, agreements, and directives elaborated since the early 1970s, which has resulted in the construction of Eurabia and the forging of a joint foreign policy based on hostility against Israel and hostile competition with America.

Today, the architects of Eurabia have moved from secret diplomacy to unashamed declaration of their ambitions, as exemplified in "Dialogue Between Peoples and Cultures in the Euro-Mediterranean Area," a curious report drafted by the High-Level Advisory Group named by Romano Prodi, the European Commission President at the time, and published in December 2003.

Though purportedly involving the entire Mediterranean rim, the dialogue is clearly aimed at the Arab-Muslim states of North Africa. Greece and Europe's Greek heritage are never mentioned, Judeo-Christian roots are eschewed, Israel is reduced to the guilty party in the Middle East conflict, leaving Europe and the Maghreb free to recombine the two halves of a shared history in a marriage made in secular heaven.

Making the best of both worlds, Euro-Med dialogue will bring together the vibrant youth of the Mediterranean and a "cynical ageing" Europe rich in capital and employment opportunities. Lest the South look askance at the E.U.'s eastward enlargement, the advisory group casts it in a friendly light. The E.U. is taking steps in the right direction by incorporating countries with Orthodox Christian traditions that "sometimes lead to behavior which is surprisingly similar with that of Islam," encompassing Bulgaria with its 10% Muslim population, then Bosnia-Herzegovina with its Muslim majority, and Turkey with its "'historically' European Islam." The end result will be a European Islam that will "dispel the image of a rampant Islamisation of Europe."
Though all cultures are equal, the report pinpoints two troublemakers.

Righteous Gentile Honored Posthumously in Yad Vashem
Jewish World
[] A ceremony posthumously honoring Giovanni Palatucci of Italy as a Righteous Gentile took place at Yad Vashem today. Italian Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu took part.
The Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum reports that Giovanni Palatucci served as commissioner in the office for foreigners in the police headquarters of the north Italian town of Fiume (today located in Croatia). Beginning at the end of 1938, he tried to prevent the implementation of the race laws enacted against the Jews by the Italian fascist regime.

In March 1939, Palatucci learned of more than 800 Jewish refugees who were set to sail to Palestine via Fiume. While collaborators with the Nazi regime hoped to waylay the ship and send the refugees back to Germany, Palatucci alerted the passengers and they safely reached southern Italy.

With the outbreak of World War II, Palatucci's activities on behalf of the Jews accelerated. He provided residency permits, and tried to provide hiding places, food and money for them as well. When the Germans invaded Italy in September 1943 and occupied Fiume, Palatucci's efforts to save Jews became especially dangerous. Nevertheless, he took added steps to save the local Jews of Fiume and the refugees who had joined them, providing false papers to any Jew who required them.

In September 1944, someone informed on him, leading to his arrest by the Gestapo and his sentencing to death. Instead of being shot, however, his sentence was commuted to exile and he was sent to the Dachau camp, where he died four months later in February 1945 at the age of 36.

After the war, the Group of Italian Jewish Communities presented Palatucci's family with a Gold Medal in appreciation for his actions. In September 1990, Palatucci was posthumously recognized by Yad Vashem as a Righteous Among the Nations. Because he had no living relatives at the time of his recognition, the medal and certificate were kept by Yad Vashem. At the request of the Italian police, it was presented today to Italian Police Commissioner Giovanni De Gennaro.

1. Half of Released Terrorists Return to Terror
Arutz-7 News: Friday, February 11, 2005
2 Adar 5765
Half of Released Terrorists Return to Terror
With a ministerial committee set to decide Sunday which Palestinian terrorists to free as a gesture to Abu Mazen, a new study shows that half of released Arab terrorists return to their evil ways.
A booklet published by journalist Boaz HaEtzni and others includes warnings and protests by public and military figures who say that releasing prisoners is dangerous from several standpoints:
* It places the lives of Israel's citizens in certain danger
* It harms the IDF's deterrence effect
* It strengthens both the motivation and capabilities of the terror organizations
* It weakens Israel's moral stance against terrorists and those who shelter them.

"From 1985 until now," the booklet states, "Israel has released thousands of Palestinian terrorists in various prisoner exchanges. Not one of them underwent a test to determine if he will continue to endanger us or not."

"We have gathered some of the results of past prisoner releases," HaEtzni explained, "and we show that waves of terrorism have been ignited as a result. According to authorized data, some 50% of the released terrorists returned to terrorism after their release."

"Our purpose in publicizing this report," he says, "is to warn those who release terrorists that every other terrorist to be released is expected to endanger us again!"

"Those who must make this decision," the booklet states, "should be aware that the eyes of women, children, babies, elderly, new immigrants and IDF soldiers who were murdered by terrorists released by Israel will be upon you. If the government hadn't decided to release them, and if the President had not signed their pardon, and if the Supreme Court had not refrained from preventing the release, these people would have been with us today."

Though the public and ministerial debate is focused on the question of whether to release murderers or not, many relatives of terror victims say no terrorists at all should be released. Aryeh Bachrach, whose 18-year-old son Ohad was murdered by Arab terrorists almost a decade ago, says there is no difference between terrorists who have murdered and those who did not succeed in their goal.

"Our organization [Almagor] has lists of terrorists released without 'blood on their hands'," Bachrach said, "whose hands became full of blood afterwards. If they have no blood on their hands, it means they didn't succeed the first time, and they'll simply try again."

The ministerial committee comprises Ministers Sharon, Mofaz, Peres, Olmert, Netanyahu, Ramon, Livny, and Ezra.

2. Rabbi Obadiah Yosef Criticises the USA over Pollard and Requested Release of Palestinian Prisoners

Background: In the last few days great pressure has been placed on the Israeli Government to release hundreds of Palestinian prisoners
who were involved in terrorist activities. Some of the terrorists had actually perpetrated murders and woundings and others were in the
process of planning to do so. Based on common sense and past experience a good proportion of these prisoners will set about
attempts to kill as many Jews as they can as soon as they are able.

Jonathan Pollard as far as we know was accused of giving secrets to Israel and also blamed for
damage to American security for which other operatives were actually responsible.
He was not given a fair trial.
The case of Pollard was apparently used by elements in the US Security
apparatus for the intensifying of anti-Semitic attitudes and policies and also to cover up the crimes of others.
Brit-Am Translation from the Hebrew original:
Rabbi Obadiah Yosef (former Chief Sephardi Rabbi of Israel and Spiritual leader of the SHAS Political Party and known religious authority):
<<Rabbi Obadiah Yoseph Attacks the USA and Calls for the release of Yonathan Pollard"
by Avishai Ben Chaim, 10.2.05
<<The spiritual leader of Shas, Rabbi Obadiah Yoseph Attacks the USA and Calls for the release of Yonatan Pollard in light of the intention of Israel to release Palestinian prisoners.

Yesterday the Ultra-Orthodox Radio Station transmitted, on the program "Kol Chai", a special taping of the announcement of Rabbi Obadiah in which he is heard to say:
<<This man, Pollard, who was imprisoned for no nefarious act of his own, who was nevertheless accused and placed in jail in the USA. The USA that claims that they are "kings of kindness" [Malchei-Chesed in Hebrew found only in 1-Kings 20:31 and translated in the KJ as "MERCIFUL KINGS": It refers to the kings of Northern Israel before the Assyrian Exile]. He [Pollard] acted in order to save the lives of Israelis. Whatever he did, he did for the sake of heaven and he does not deserve such a fate [as he has received]. It is obligatory to release him.>>
Later the Rabbi said with great anger:
<<They [the USA] are requiring of us to release prisoners who are evildoers, who are murderers. This is what they are requesting of us and saying that it will promote peace. They are in Covenant with us so why do they incarcerate him [Pollard]? Why will they not release him? They are acting unjustly. This present Government of the USA is doing a great injustice and the matter must be protested against. He [Pollard] must be released so that he may have a good life and live in peace".

3. Men and women differ in <>brain structure:

In general, men have approximately 6.5 times the amount of gray matter related to general intelligence than women, and women have nearly 10 times the amount of white matter related to intelligence than men. Gray matter represents information processing centers in the brain, and white matter represents the networking of -- or connections between -- these processing centers.
This, according to <>Rex Jung, a UNM neuropsychologist and co-author of the study, may help to explain why men tend to excel in tasks requiring more local processing (like mathematics), while women tend to excel at integrating and assimilating information from distributed gray-matter regions in the brain, such as required for language facility. These two very different neurological pathways and activity centers, however, result in equivalent overall performance on broad measures of cognitive ability, such as those found on intelligence tests.
The study also identified regional differences with intelligence. For example, 84 percent of gray-matter regions and 86 percent of white-matter regions involved with intellectual performance in women were found in the brain's frontal lobes, compared to 45 percent and zero percent for males, respectively. The gray matter driving male intellectual performance is distributed throughout more of the brain.

The Lebanon-based Hizbullah terror organization has announced that it
is raising the compensation it pays out to families of suicide
attackers from $20,000 to $100,000.

Israeli officials, too, report that there are currently some 50
Hizbullah-sponsored terrorist cells throughout Judea and Samaria.

PA military officials told Associated Press reporters that Hizbullah,
which has in the past funded hundreds of PA terrorists, has been
intensifying its recruiting efforts, offering to pay great sums of
money to armed men willing to attack Israeli targets.

Israeli Knesset Member Benny Elon is in the United States to kick off
a campaign to connect Christians and Jews in support of Biblical

Together with MKs Yuri Stern and Gila Gamliel, Elon is attending the
National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) convention in Anaheim,
California, the largest annual gathering of Christian broadcasters.

At a press conference today, Elon will release his new book, "God's
Covenant with Israel: Establishing Biblical Boundaries in Today's
World." Dotted with personal anecdotes and recollections, the book
traces the Jewish People's connection with the Land of Israel from a
national and historic perspective. It debunks purported evidence
about Moslem ties to the Holy Land, and shows that Islam relates to
Christians, as well as to Jews, as infidels.

The book also includes chapters on Elon's "Right Road to Peace" plan
and on Israel's Biblical inheritance of the Land. A separate section
exhorts readers to "Get involved!,' while another lists key Prophetic
Scriptures about Israel. A report from Palestinian Media Watch and a
study of the international legal status of Israel and the settlements
is also included.

NRB [National Religious Broadcasters] board member Michael Little said that evangelical Christians
believe that God gave Israel to the Jews, while outgoing NRB chairman
Glenn Plummer noted that in the Bible, "God does not identify himself
as the God of Abraham, Ishmael and his descendants," but rather as
that of Abraham, Isaac and descendants. Plummer, an African-American
pastor from Detroit, told the Christian and Jewish audience that "when
Islam comes into a place, their intent is to take over everything."

The Efrat Organization, dedicated to fighting unnecessary abortions,
tells the story of a soldier who was saved by his friend - who himself
had been saved before birth, in "unique" circumstances.

The Efrat organization, dedicated to preventing the #1 cause of death
in Israel - abortion - continues to register successes. In the year
2004, Efrat saved the lives of 1,658 Jewish children in Israel, by
providing social and financial support to mothers who had planned to
abort for socio-economic and related reasons. The number of successes
in 2003 was 1,448.

Recently, a story was publicized in a work entitled <I>Aleinu
L'Shabe'ach </I>(We Must Praise) by Rabbi Zilberstein of Bnei Brak,
son-in-law of Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv and the rabbinic advisor to
the Maayanei HaYeshuah Hospital in Bnei Brak. Though the names have
been changed, the facts are accurate, as testified to by more than one
person. The incident occurred as follows:

Yoav, a young IDF soldier, was manning an isolated guard post in
Hevron in the middle of the night when he was shot by an Arab sniper.
With no one to help him, and unable to radio for help, it appeared
that he would bleed to death before he could be found. Another
soldier, however, did hear something. Not sure, he went to
investigate, and spotted Yoav lying on the ground, bleeding profusely.

The soldier immediately began to administer first aid, and arranged
for Yoav to be transported to a medical facility - applying manual
pressure until the ambulance could arrive. Eventually, Yoav arrived
and was treated at a proper medical facility. The doctors told his
parents that had it not been for the immediate and appropriate actions
of the other soldier, their son Yoav would definitely not have
survived. It was indeed a miracle that the other soldier heard what no
one else heard, the parents felt, and looked for him to thank him.
But he had already left the hospital.

During Yoav's recovery period, his family called the army to find out
the name of the soldier who had saved Yoav's life. No one knew.
Finally, Yoav's parents put up a sign in the grocery store they own in
Kiryat Malachi. They described the miracle that had occurred, and
asked for information on the identity of Yoav's savior. "Israel is a
small country," they thought, "and someone might know someone who
knows someone, etc."

It took a year. A woman entered the store one day and saw the sign.
She was positive that her son Doron had mentioned such an account. She
took out her cellphone and called Doron on the spot. Sure enough, he
remembered the incident quite well, and it was he who had saved Yoav's

Soon all the families gathered together for a joyful, tearful
celebration - but one of the mothers knew that there was an extra
reason to celebrate. Doron's mother pulled Yoav's mother aside and
told her,
"There is a specific reason why I came to your store today. You don't
remember me, but twenty years ago, I was standing in your store
feeling lost and forlorn. You and your wonderful husband noticed how
sad I looked and asked me what was the matter. I explained that I was
pregnant and was overwhelmed. There were so many unbearable
difficulties, financially, socially and emotionally. I had decided
that the only way out was to have an abortion.

"You both stopped everything, and calmly and lovingly sat with me. You
listened to me. Then you offered so much encouragement and support.
Because of you, everything began to look different and I chose to keep
my baby. I no longer live around here, but I happened to be passing
through and I figured it would be nice to visit your store again to
thank you once again for all that you did for me. The name of that
precious baby was Doron. My beloved Doron, who would not have been
born were it not for you, grew up to save your son Yoav's life."

LONDON [MENL] -- The United States has increased intelligence operations
against Israel as part of an effort to prevent a war in the Middle East.

Western diplomatic sources said that over the last two years the U.S.
intelligence community has increased monitoring of Israel's military and
government. The sources said the move was ordered by the White House as part
of an effort to prevent an escalation of the war with the Palestinians or a
regional war that could begin with an Israeli attack on Syria.

"There's been concern that Israel would pull a surprise on the United States
with either an offensive against Hizbullah in Lebanon or a massive attack on
the Gaza Strip," a diplomatic source said. "Washington doesn't want to be
surprised and would rather know this information in advance and first hand."

The sources said the result has been increased U.S. satellite monitoring of
Israel to determine military movements, import and export of weapons,
weapons tests and construction of housing in Israeli communities in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip. They said the United States has also expanded the
interception of signals communications from Israeli government and military

IMRA - Independent Media Review and Analysis

The lands of Israel, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and other areas were originally divided up amongst the Twelve Tribes of Israel.
The Ten Northern Tribes were taken into Exile by the Assyrians and disappeared as a conscious Israelite entities.
[They became the British and related peoples in the West]. Those Israelites who remained were known as the
Jews after Judah which was the dominant Tribe. The Jews were driven into Exile by the Romans.
The Romans in the East became the Byzantines. They ruled over the area until Syria and Palestine
were conquered by the Persians and Arabs. The Arabs were replaced by the Turks.
In the 1880s and early 1900s the Turkish Empire was falling apart. The British were nearby, in
Egypt and Cyprus. The British helped the Turks withstand pressures from Russia and other European powers.
Russia tried to give protection to Greek Orthodox Christians in the Turkish Empire especially in "Palestine".
The French did the same for Roman Catholics especially those in Lebanon.
The British gave de facto protection to the Jews. This gave the British a foothold in the area.
The British were also guided by the desire to convert the Jews to Christianity and they had an active society
in Jerusalem dedicated to that purpose with an organization, funds, and an important hospital of its own.
The British also wanted to create a Jewish State in the area. This desire reflected a traditional British
ideal known as Restorationism.
At Jewish request the British prevented a massacre by the
Arabs of the Samaritan community in Schechem. The majority of the population of Jerusalem was Jewish.
Religious Jews ands secular Zionists were constantly attempting to increase Jewish presence in the Land
and the British helped as they could. Then came the First World War and the Turks joined the Germans
and Austrians against the British. German and Austrian generals, officers, and instructors were to be found throughout
the Turkish Army and administration. The Turks began to persecute the Jews in "Palestine" and half of them managed to leave
the country. Some died of starvation and sickness. At one stage the Turks intended to kill all the Jews in Jerusalem (as they had done to the
Armenians in Armenia) but a German official stopped them.
British, Australian, and New Zealand troops drove out the Turks.
The British then took over the Land of "Palestine" (i.e. the Land of Israel) promising to enable
the establishment of a Jewish State.
The British more or less fulfilled their promise (see "The Tribes") but tried to also please the
Arabs. It proved impossible to please both the Arabs and Jews so the British felt constrained to leave.
The Jews fought the Arabs and beat them. The State of Israel came into existence in 1948.
The USA soon became the ally and "elder brother" of the Jews but made the same mistake
as the British had in that they also wished to please the Arabs.

The above account is greatly simplified but the overall picture is correct.
More will follow.

A survey showing a plurality of Israelis in favor of the transfer of
at least part of the Arab population of Samaria/Gaza was suppressed
for a month until WorldNetDaily demanded its release.

The poll was commissioned by Mishalot Yisrael, a group formed to
assess public opinion regarding Prime Minister Sharon's disengagement
plan. It was carried out by Mutagim, a large Israeli polling company,
on Jan. 12 and was released only yesterday.

Almost 400 respondents were asked whether they "prefer the
'Sharon/Peres Disengagement Plan,' which stipulates the transfer of
Gaza and Northern Shomron to Palestinian control and the expulsion of
all Jews who live there or do they prefer a plan known as the
'Jewish Alternative Disengagement Plan,' which includes the Israeli
annexation of these territories and the expulsion of the Arabs living
there to an area outside Israel."

The results showed that 39% of the general Israeli population favor
the latter plan, while 37% favor Sharon's plan.

Mutagim refused to release the survey results, claiming that a
question was entered late and the company was only able to interview
397 people instead of the 511 originally planned. The company offered
to conduct another survey for free. Yekutiel Ben-Yaakov, director of
Mishalot Yisroel, told <a
WorldNetDaily</a> that he demanded the release of the poll results.
"The polling companies are afraid. They don't want to put anything out
that shows the Israeli people would rather kick out the Palestinians
and not evacuate the Jews," Ben-Yaakov said.

WND reports that following its inquiries and article, Mutagim
"suddenly rushed to Ben-Yaakov the official poll results showing
Israelis favor booting the Palestinian population. "

ISRAELI ECONOMY LEAPS BY 4.2% IN 2004 (Economy/Society)
The Israeli economy grew by a robust 4.2% in 2004, according to data
released Monday by the Central Bureau of Statistics.

Fueling the growth in GDP (Gross Domestic Product) were exports of
goods and services, climbing at a 14.3% annual rate. Private
consumption rose by 4.3% over the year before, pushing per capita
consumption of many consumer goods up by a substantial 2.6%.

The last quarter of 2004 showed a large jump of 7% in private
consumption. Leading the way in that category were new car sales, up
by 24.2% for the year, continuing the trend of the last half of 2003,
when new car sales skyrocketed by 58.4%.

Rising consumption figures contrast sharply with the cumulative drop
of 6.5% measured from 2001-2003. Israel’s overall standard of living
moved up by 3.4% in 2004, after dropping by 1.5% in 2002-2003.

Business production rose by 5.7% in the second half of 2004, building
on a 4.3% rise in the first half of the year. The rise in production
reflects growth in the industrial and agricultural sectors and in most
service sectors, including transportation, communications, commerce,
hotels, and financial and business services.

Lagging behind in the second half was the construction industry,
registering a 7.5% decline in investment in residential construction.
Investment in fixed assets went unchanged in the second half, despite
a strong rebound of 28% in the fourth quarter.

Israel’s GDP totaled NIS 527 billion in 2004, or NIS 77,400 ($17,500)
per capita.

Coinciding with the jump in GDP, the Israel National Employment
Service reports that demand for workers increased by 1.8% in January,
translating into 18,100 requests for new employees. 2004 showed a
steady growth in demand for workers, in contrast to the previous four

Demand for workers in January was higher in 14 out of 16 regions
compared to 2003, with the largest increases in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv,
the Upper Galilee, and the South.

As the Bank of Israel cuts interest rates in order to boost economic
growth, interest rates on mortgages dropped to their lowest rate in a
decade, making it much easier for Israelis and new immigrants to
purchase a home. Average interest rates on mortgages linked to
changes in the cost of living index dropped to below 5%.

3. Jew-Hatred and anti-Americanism are linked and growing

Anti-Semitism Evolves
by Daniel Pipes

New York Sun
February 15, 2005

Anti-Semitism may seem to be a static, unchanging phenomenon but in fact the obsessive hatred of Jews has a history that goes back millennia and continues to evolve.

Developments since World War II and the Holocaust have been especially fast-paced and portentous. Here are four of the most significant shifts:

From right to left: For centuries, anti-Semitism was the hallmark of the right and merely episodic on the left. To take the ultimate examples of these trends, Stalin's Judeophobia was peripheral to his monstrous project, but Hitler's was central to his. Even a decade ago, this pattern still basically held true. But recent years have witnessed a rapid and global realignment, with the mainstream right increasingly sympathetic to Jews and Israel and its leftist counterparts cooler and more hostile.

From religious to secular: What began as a rejection of the Jewish religion evolved over the centuries into a bias against the supposed Jewish race, (thus, our continued use of the nonsensical term anti-Semitism) and lately has evolved into anti-Zionism, or hatred of the Jewish state. An astonishing 2003 poll in which Europeans found Israel to be the leading threat to world peace indicates the depth of this new sentiment.

The conflation of anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism: Jews and Americans, Israel and the United States they have merged in the minds of many around the world, so that one prejudice routinely implies the other one too. The two hatreds also share a basic feature: neither is susceptible to rational argument, so each is better understood as the symptom of a psychological disorder than of some arcane political logic.

European Jewry is next most in danger, though in a more mundane way: Political and social isolation, depredations by Islamists, Palestinian radicals, and other hotheads, and a growing sense that Jews have no future in that continent. An exodus may take place in the near future that replicates the post-World War II exodus of Jews from Muslim countries, where the Jewish population has collapsed from about a million in 1948 to 60,000 today.

And finally, the United States: American Jews may not have been conscious of it, but they have lived these past 60 years in one of Jewry's golden ages, arguably more brilliant than those in Andalusia, Aragon, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, and Prague. But now, in a milder form than in Europe, Jews face similar currents swirling through American life, especially the Islamist surge coddled by leftists. The golden age of American Jewry, therefore, is ending. American Jews have had the relative luxury of worrying about such matters as intermarriage, coreligionists around the world, school prayer, and abortion; if current trends continue, they increasingly will find themselves worrying about personal security, marginalization, and the other symptoms already evident in Europe.

The Jews are not demonstrating with their dead on the streets, yelling and chanting and asking for revenge, the Jews are not
promoting brain washing the children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non-Muslims. The Jews don't highjack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, the Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

The Jews don't have the economical strength of the Petroleum, nor the possibilities to force the world's media to see "their side" of the question. Perhaps if the world's Muslims could invest more in normal education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems, we could all live in a better world.

The Age
New Australian taskforce for Iraq
February 22, 2005 - 2:28PM

Australia will send another 450 troops to Iraq to provide security for Japanese military engineers in the southern province of Al Muthanna.

Prime Minister John Howard said the troops would deploy in 10 weeks' time and stay for six months, followed by a second six-month rotation.

Mr Howard said he knew the decision, triggered by the Netherlands' decision to withdraw 1,400 troops from the task of rebuilding Iraq, would be unpopular and admitted that lives could be lost.

But he said Al Muthanna was one of the safer parts of Iraq and was far less dangerous than areas around Baghdad and further north.

"It's remained relatively benign," he told reporters today.

"It's a lot better and this is a much safer part of Iraq than the Sunni triangle."

Australia already has some 900 personnel in the Middle East, including about 400 inside Iraq, engaged in a variety of roles including training Iraq forces and providing security.

The new deployment will more than double Australian boots on the ground.

Editor: Hillel Fendel
US President George W. Bush told policy makers meeting in Brussels
Monday that further Israeli withdrawals from Judea and Samaria must
lead to a "viable" and "contiguous" PLO state.

Bush called on Israel "to freeze settlement activity, help
Palestinians build a thriving economy and ensure that a new
Palestinian state is truly viable, with contiguous territory on the
West Bank."

Enunciating a vision that can be attained only by dismantling more
Jewish towns and communities in Judea and Samaria, Bush stated bluntly
that "a state of scattered territories [for the PLO] will not work."

Many Jewish communities, reestablished on ancient biblical sites in
territory liberated from the Arabs in the Six-Day War, are located
along the main highway linking Arab-populated cities in Judea and
Samaria. It is these Jewish towns and villages that will have to be
dismantled, according to the Bush vision, to make a 23rd "viable" Arab
country in the Middle East.

Bush even promised that something like this would actually happen, and
offered American support: "As Palestinian leaders assume
responsibility for Gaza and an increasingly larger territory, we will
help them build the economic and political and security institutions
needed to govern effectively."

Bush said he will direct Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to attend
a conference to be hosted by British Prime Minister Tony Blair in
London next month "to convey America's strong support for the
Palestinian people as they build a democratic state."

Among the many entities that oppose a PA state is the Zionist
Organization of America. The terrorist war waged by the PA Arabs
against Israel, as well as "their culture of anti-Jewish hatred and
violence," indicate that a PA state will not be "peaceful and
democratic," but rather a terrorist entity, the ZOA has stated.
"President Bush promised to end terrorist states, not create new
ones," ZOA President Morton Klein said.

Just 13 years ago, then-US President George W. Bush, Sr. sent a letter
of assurance to Israel, stating, "In accordance with the United
States' traditional policy, we do not support the creation of an
independent Palestinian State."

"For it's always to be seen,
The Orange and the Green
Goin' before the Thin Red Line"

These verses (or something like them) are taken from a work about the
Celts whose title is to be found somewhere in my notes. The verse refers to
the fact that soldiers from Ulster (Orange) and from (Green) Southern Ireland
often bore the brunt of the fighting in wars fought by the British Empire
whose "ordinary" soldiers were represented by the "Thin Red Line".
Nowadays in the State of Israel the color of Orange has come to represent
the Jewish settlers and their supporters who are against giving away portions of the Land of
Israel to Arab squatters.
Green is also important since slogans are written in Green and White on the Orange banners
and tee-shirts. You also have the "Women in Green" which is a popular organization that organizes
demonstrations, and engages in educational propaganda on behalf of the settlers and Jewish
rights to the Land in general.
You could say that the "Orange and the Green" is once again in the forefront.
Now, if somebody could only explain how all this ties together....

In response to "Brit-Am Now"-526: Bush claims to read the Bible

Don't be so quick to judge Bush. Especially if you believe in providence. Maybe Bush is supposed to be the president, and Sharon the prime minister for the good or evil days ahead. Many times a nation has to choose the lesser of two evils, since many times both candidates running for office are flawed. So what were the alternatives? The USA chose Bush instead of Kerry, and Israel chose Sharon over Barak. Would you really rather it had been the other way around?

Bush said he would negotiate with Palestinian leaders for an independent state, if they refrain from terroristic tactics, but not with Arafat. Arafat is dead, so now Bush is keeping his word. It may not coincide with how he personally feels toward a Palestinian state. Maybe he secretly hopes there will never be one, but then again, maybe he does. Only he, himself, knows for sure. If Arafat had not died, it is doubtful Bush would be trying to advance the Palestinian cause. Perhaps he counted on Arafat living until his second term was up, and now has to regretfully stand by his word. Maybe the Palestinians will not embrace democracy and peace with Israel no matter what Bush and Sharon do for them, and they will seal their own fate. This is highly probable if history is any indication of the future.

The end times are probably not going to be peaceful times, regardless. The Palestinians in Israel are a most difficult situation, and it is easy to criticize the leaders involved. I'm afraid that this problem is only going to be resolved through much blood shed and Sharon and Bush share this fear too, and are desperately trying to avoid it. Perhaps they are wrong in their methods, and they will inadvertently cause more in the long run. Perhaps its inevitable, but perhaps not. One thing is certain, God will have to intervene on behalf of His people. He has done so recently and most spectacularly in 1948 and 1967, and I have faith He will do so again, regardless of Sharon's and Bush's weaknesses. In the mean time we will have to make do with fallible, flawed leaders, but will have to judge wisely on which would be the lesser of two evils. So ask yourself:
Q: What was the alternative to Bush?
A: John Kerry
Q: What would Kerry do if had been elected, and what are the probable consequences?
A: Probably pick up where Clinton's "legacy" left off by negotiating with Arafat, who by the way, was a terrorist and wished all Jews to be drowned in the sea. Saddam, an enemy to the USA and Israel, would still be in power, and our sovereignty would only exist in minute amounts as the U.N. dictates. The ACLU is attacking anything and everything that is moral and decent as it is, so just imagine what a heyday they, and other secular radical left-wing organizations would have if Kerry had been elected along with his trial lawyer running mate.

It is ridiculous when a school has to be afraid to have a prayer prior to a football game because they might face a lawsuit. These lawsuits have become a form of legal-terrorism. The type of people holding secular leftist views have become the base for the Democrat party, and Democrats will pander to them if they get in power. It is not the same party it used to be 20-30 or even 10 yrs ago. And remember, Kerry would have not banned partial-birth abortions either. At least Bush has read enough of the Bible to realize that the gruesome murder of innocent and "viable" babies is wrong. You should be somewhat thankful, for it could be worse -- much worse.

Subject: [origin of nations] Hitler scientists built basic nuclear bombs
March 05, 2005
from Roger Boyes in Berlin, 1-3-1511154-3,00.html

HITLER’S scientists tested a battlefield nuclear bomb and were close to deploying the so-called “wonder weapon” towards the end of the war, according to a book to be published in Germany this month.

Hundreds of prisoners of war were burned and killed in the tests in 1944 and 1945 which led Hitler to believe that he could win the race for the atomic bomb and tip the war in his favour.

Rainer Karlsch, a social historian, says that the Nazi bomb was never anywhere as strong as the US bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Postwar scholars have therefore tended to discount the likelihood of Hitler having, or being close to having, such a devastating weapon: there seemed to be no physical evidence.

But Dr Karlsch says in Hitler’s Bomb that Germany had built an atomic reactor in Gottow, a village outside Berlin that now amounts to no more than a few chunks of concrete. The Nazis were also, he says, harvesting sufficient nuclear material to build so-called “dirty bombs” whereby tons of conventional explosives are wrapped around a nuclear device. The effect of such bombs is to magnify several thousand times the force of a conventional explosion and Hitler, until close to the end of the war, seemed to be counting on these to drive back the Red Army.

Dr Karlsch’s arguments are based on East German, British, American and Russian archives. Soviet military intelligence infiltrated the SS unit supervising the nuclear tests.He also took soil samples from the test areas on the island of R gen and the state of Thuringia and interviewed survivors who saw test explosions.

At the beginning of March 1945 with the Red Army only 40 miles from Berlin the SS leader, Heinrich Himmler, was optimistic. He had just been told of the nuclear test in Thuringia. “We still haven’t used our last miracle weapon,” he told his doctor. “In one or two strikes, New York and London will disappear.”

4. Jews and Southern Baptists: "a family reunion"
Kansas City Jewish Chronicle - Mar 11, 2005
Jews and Christians serve the same God
By Rabbi Amy Wallk Katz, Special to The Chronicle

I am grateful to Rev. Adam Hamilton for allowing his church to host tonight's program. We are very glad to be here. I also want to thank Rev Hamilton for being my friend and for being a friend of the Jewish community. I pray that our communities continue to find ways to work with one another and to understand one another's traditions.

In June 2002 when I first met Pastor Paul Brooks, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had heard him speak at a rally and knew he was fiercely committed to the state of Israel, but I wasn't sure what he thought about Jews. He is a Southern Baptist, an evangelical Christian, and I was nervous that perhaps there was an ulterior motive to Pastor Brooks' overtures. Cautiously, I began to get to know Pastor Brooks, eager to better understand who he is, what he believes and feels about both Judaism and the state of Israel.

Pastor Brooks has become my friend and my teacher. I have learned much from him, and I believe that we are all indebted to him and to his tireless efforts to build bridges between our communities. Let me explain.

About six months after I first me Pastor Brooks, our communities first came together to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. At that time, Pastor Brooks welcomed us all into his church and said that, for him, the evening was a family reunion. At first I was a bit surprised and even uncomfortable with the idea of a family reunion.

You see I am painfully aware of Jewish history. I know that Jews have been expelled from nearly every country in Christian Europe in which they have resided. I also know that in nearly every country where Jews have lived, they have at some time been subjected to beatings, torture and murder, solely because they were Jews. When I look back at the last 1,600 years of Jewish history, I am forced to recall the Crusades, the accusations against Jews that they slaughtered a Christian child as part of their religious ritual, and the libels that the Jews were plotting to poison the Christian world. I am also fairly certain that 1,600 years of Christian anti-Semitism laid a solid foundation that made the Holocaust possible.

And so when Pastor Brooks welcomed us to his church and suggested that a gathering of Jews and Christians was a family reunion, I had to do some very hard thinking. Intellectually, I knew Pastor Brooks was correct. We are all descendants of Abraham. And we pray to the same God. But my heart was telling me to be cautious.

Until I started to think about serving God.

While typically Jews think of God as omnipotent, in fact many traditional Jewish texts suggest that God is dependent on human beings for influence in this world. Strange as it may sound at first, God needs the efforts of humanity in God's quest for the moral perfection of the world and especially for the dissemination of God's name and ways. The ancient sages of Jewish tradition picture God actually thanking the patriarch Abraham for making God King of the earth, for without Abraham's active proselytization, God would have remained unknown. Not until Abraham served as a sort of divine advance man was God able to bring God's word to the world.

Because I want to serve God, I was forced to think and re-think my relationships with my Christian neighbors. And tonight I want to say that I fully accept Pastor Brook's message. This is a family reunion. We are brothers and sisters. And if we are to fulfill God's will here on earth, we must set aside our differences, come together, and work to make this world a better place.

While never forgetting the past, I call upon the Jews in this sanctuary to look to the future.

We Jews must recognize that major changes have taken place, both within Protestantism and Catholicism. We Jews must recognize that at this moment in world history, and, we pray, in the future also, Christians are our allies, not our oppressors. Finally, we Jews must recognize that each of us can make a difference by extending ourselves to our neighbors.

Our communities worship one God. We share a love of the Hebrew scriptures and a deep commitment to Israel. My prayer for this evening is that we harness our energies to repair the world.

If we study with one another, we understand more about each other and ourselves. If we find a way to celebrate our similarities and respect our differences, we serve God and we sanctify God's name. And that is really what our lives should be about. Serving God.

RESULTS: Studies found that exercise can produce significant improvements in patients relative to those who only took drugs.
DEPRESSED patients should be offered exercise "on prescription" by their GPs in place of drugs, according to a report by mental health campaigners published today.
Studies have shown that exercise can produce significant and comparable improvements in patients relative to those who only take anti-depressant medication.
It has also been shown that those who continue to exercise after completing an initial trial were much less likely to experience a return of depression than those in the group taking anti-depressants.
The Mental Health Foundation (MHF) said GPs should be offering all patients with depression a programme of exercise to help combat their symptoms.

Why Israel is Suspicious of United Nations?
 Before 1990, Security Council passed 175 resolutions, 97 were directed against Israel (It is 55% of all resolutions).
 Before 1990, UN General Assembly voted on 690 resolutions, 429 were directed against Israel (It is 62% of all resolutions).
Israel is the only country excluded from the U.N.'s regional group system Since Israel does not belong to any group, it is the only country of 190 member states that is not eligible to serve on the numerous U.N. commissions
 In recent years, the U.N. Commission on Human Rights has annually passed five resolutions condemning Israel. This year, they passed seven. By contrast, each of the following countries/regions has been the subject of only one resolution: Afghanistan, Burundi, Congo, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Myanmar, Russia/Chechnya, Sierra Leone, Southeast Europe and Sudan
UNIFIL, the U.N. force stationed on the Israel-Lebanon border, hid a videotape of Israeli soldiers being abducted by Hezbollah in October 2000. After finally admitting to having the tape, the U.N. would only show an edited version (in which Hezbollah faces were hidden) to the Israeli government.
UNESCO, in Paris, began passing resolutions about protection of Jerusalem holy sites and access for Muslims in 1968. No resolutions about protection or Jewish access were passed from 1946 to 1967 when Jordan controlled Jerusalem and barred Jews from entering
4. Arabs Want Destruction of Israel
It is Time to "Leave Egypt"

 Arabs have no intention to live in peace with Jews. When Saddat Hussain was asked: Why do you continue to fight Israel after so many defeats? His answer was: Because. We need to win only one war! Arabs aim is a total destruction of Jewish state!
5. Is the USA anti-Israel?
The USA is forcing Israel to abandon areas around Gaza and in the Northern Sinai
in the process expelling more than 8000 Jewish settlers from those areas.
Ms. Rice and other members of
the Administration have indicated that this is only the beginning and that after this
"evacuation" will come similar demands relating to the other portions of the Land of Israel.
Now comes more news:
U.S. says Israel must give up nukes
By Amir Oren, Haaretz Correspondent
The State Department Saturday called on Israel to forswear nuclear weapons
and accept international Atomic Energy Agency safeguards on all nuclear
Without Nuclear Weapons Israel would be very very vulnerable
and any "protection" that the USA might extend could be extremely costly.
6. Will Palestinians Leave Instead of Jews?
The Jerusalem Post weekly-supplement "UPFRONT" (April 1, 2005)
published an article "Blueprint for Evacuation" by Arieh O'Sullivan
and Yaakov Katz. The article details the logistics for evacuating Jewish settlers
beginning on July 25, 2005. In order to prevent trouble
effective control will be taken of most Palestinian areas in the region
and other preventive measures taken.
The fact is that if the Israeli Government so wanted
it would take less than an hour to turn everything around and
use the apparatus to expel
the whole Palestinian populations of Gaza and Northern Samaria.
Theodor Herzl said about Zionism long before the State of Israel
became a reality:
"If you believe in it, it is no legend", meaning that the promise that the
Jews would return to their land could become more than just a dream.
So too, in relation to other matters:
Isaiah 11:14 ikn the Hebrew text indicates that Ephraim together with Judah will
fly the Philistine-Palestinians out of Israel.
They Must Go!
Because the Jews did not drive away the Arabs they are now being forced to expel
their own people by their own hand.
Either the Arabs go or the Jews will have to.
The Arabs have more than 20 states that share the same culture, religion, language, and ethnic base
as themselves. The Jews have none.
It was never good for the Jews in Arab countries.
The story of Muslim tolerance in the past is a myth.
Maimonides became the personal doctor of Saladdin and is often cited as an
example of how "good" it was for the Jews under Muslim rule.
Maimonides wrote however (in his "Letter to Yemen") that no nation had ever oppressed
the Jews as the Arabs had.
If the world can tolerate the proposed expulsion of Jews from part of the Land of Israel what would
be wrong with an alternative human transferal of Muslims??
7. The Book of Proverbs: A Re-Newed Study
We began this commentary some time ago and now we are returning to it for the second or third time. It may be that there is a reason why we did not progress in this study in the past that no longer holds at present. We will try again and every message sent out by us will contain something of this or one of our other Biblical Studies. We will be continuing with our commentary to the Books of Samuel and to Psalms.
The aim of these studies is to emphasize those aspects of prophecy especially pertinent to Brit-Am while studying Scripture in general.
The Book of  Proverbs by Solomon son of David the King of Judah and Israel
A Commentary by Brit-Am and Friends
David was the King of Israel and will return to be the King of Israel. He was the once and future king of all Israel. Alternately the future ruler of Israel will be a descendant of David and in some way embody his essence so that it will be as he was David himself. David had many sons (possibly 30 or more) but only the line of Solomon will bring forth the Messiah.
The Book of Proverbs is a very good book. A lot of the words of advice given here are indispensable for someone who really wants to know how to behave. We tend to forget the advice given here and that is one of the reasons why this commentary is going out. It is as an exercise in revision and learning. We are not trying to preach. We need this instruction as much as anybody. We wish to learn this work for our own sake and know from experience that others on our list would like to share with us.

Mr. President Relocate Palestinians: Not Jews From the Land of Their Inheritance
John Stembridge
Former Mayor of North Miami, Fl.
...... I am concerned that both of you will invite the displeasure of the Almighty on your administrations and the people whom you serve.

You ask, why would you make such a statement John? Well Mr. President, when, nearly a thousand times the Almighty is calling all the tribes out all the nations of our scattering back to Zion and to Himself, it means that this regathering of His people is something that He is very passionate about. Like any husband, He wants His wife living with Himself in the home that He gave her as an inheritance forever and not living with other gods in their homes scattered among the nations of the globe.

The false premise being touted that Israel has too much land is a ruse. When you look at the size of Israel, that is smaller than the State of New Jersey, Mr. President, compared with land controlled by more than one and a quarter billion Moslems, you will see how idiotic that argument is. For example Mr. President, my city Miami, Fl. has taken in more than two million refugees in the last fifty years at great expense and sacrifice to the people of our city. Is it too much to expect the one and a quarter billion Moslems of the world to take one million Palestinians into their nations thereby finally allowing Israel to live in peace within safe and secure borders?

Rather than giving nearly a billion hard earned American taxpayers dollars to evacuate Jews from any part of Zion thereby invoking the wrath of the Almighty, I would rather give our money to relocate all Palestinians, who are willing, to homes in the nations of their Islamic brothers. Better yet, let the Islamic oil nations use some of their extortionate oil profits from America and the industrialized nations along with our funds to help fund their relocation. ...

I have been told that you are a believer in the Bible. If you are Mr. President, then you already know, whether your advisors in the State Department know it or not, that G-d is currently calling all the tribes out of every nation of their scattering back to the land of their inheritance. If you and Mr. Sharon want to be blessed and your nations blessed, find out G-d's agenda and then cooperate with Him, rather than opposing His will like Hitler, Haman, Pharaoh, and all the other leaders who have ended on the ash heaps of history.

May you and Mr. Sharon do the right thing in the eyes of the Almighty ...

23:59 The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) published a poll that shows a slight decline, in comparison with 2002, in the number of anti-Semitic Americans. 14% of the Americans, approximately 35 million, are anti-Semitic, compared to 17% in 2002, 12% in 1998 and 20% in 1992. (Guysen.Isra l.News)
The number of anti-Semitic acts reached its highest level in nine years: 1,821 anti-Semitic acts were counted in 2004, which is a 17% rise in comparison with the 1,557 anti-Semitic acts committed in 2003. Among the factors having contributed to this rise are the neo-Nazi groups' actions, anti-Jewish demonstration and intimidation in the American schools.

3. David Basch: "By What Right is Gaza Israel?"
The Land of Israel Belongs Entirely to the Tribes of Israel of Whom Judah
is the Forerunner and Representative.
The Bible is the document that gives the State of Israel the right to all land at present in its
possession. No other document is needed. Israel also has a right to Part of Egypt, the Sinai, Part of Saudia Arabia, Kuwait, Part of Iraq, Lebanon,
Syria, Cyprus, and part of Turkey, and this is just a beginning.


Even so, it does perhaps also help to know when dealing with certain circles
that also from the viewpoint of International Legal Principles Israel has more right
to Gaza, Judah, and Samaria than any other party as the following article shows:
The Boston Globe - Apr 05, 2005
By What Right is Gaza Israel?
By David Basch
[Extracts only]

Dear Editor:
A Grand Rapids reader of the Globe today (4.5.05) asks by what right is Gaza Israeli? He looks for reasons in law, which I hope he will abide when he learns of them.
Gaza and the territories of Judea and Samaria -- years ago I actually heard King Hussein of Jordan refer to them as that on a news program like Face the Nation -- belong to Israel under the Mandate of Palestine that set aside these lands for a Jewish Homeland and allowed "continuous close settlement" in them by the Jewish people. The Mandate was established by the League of Nations and this enactment was based on the historic rights of the Jewish people to those lands. The enactment was passed on and continues in force through the United Nations.

That is why Egypt and Jordan were illegal occupiers in 1948 when they seized those territories of the Mandate in having launched an aggressive war on the newly established Jewish State, Israel. Today Israel is the only sovereign state with legitimate claims to those lands...

U.S. governments have since blown hot and cold in support of Israel. It is only very recently that the terms "occupied" have been used by the U.S. to describe Israel's hold on these officially unannexed territories. For example, the Reagan adminsitration referred to these lands as "disputed." The new usage of "occupied" is debatable since it is inaccurate and misleading. Israel cannot be said to be "occupying" lands to which she is the only sovereign nation with claims.

No doubt, the so-called settlers, who have lived in Gaza for decades, some coming to rebuild old Jewish communities in Gaza that the Arabs destroyed when they made war in 1948, will prefer to describe the Jewish right to Gaza as coming from the Bible, something that Bible believing persons worldwide will respect...

5. Majority of Israelis Want Arabs to Move Out

HaMair LeDavid
List-Subscribe: <>
Yet another poll says Arabs OUT!
Today the Haaretz newspaper reported the results of a new poll taken by the Dahaf institute commissioned by Madar, the Palestinian Center for Israel Studies.
The poll found that 42 percent agreed that the state should encourage Israeli Arabs to emigrate, while another 17 percent said they tended to agree with this.

There are a few impressive details about this poll. First of all it deals with ISRAELI Arabs, voting citizens of Israel, who have the same rights as any Jewish citizen and can serve in the Knesset. These are "our" Arabs the "good Arabs" which we hear so much about from the left. Even so a majority of Israelis want them OUT. If this is true about Israeli Arab Citizens, one can only imagine the results about "Palestinians".

Second it was commissioned by Arabs so there is little chance of bias here. I'm sure these are not the results that they wanted to hear and must have overcome a large margin of error in order for Dahaf to release the results. When approached by Yekutiel Ben Yaakov of Mishalot Israel to take a similar poll, they outright refused and admitted that they "feared" what the results might be..
...Israel needs to decide whether or not it wants to be and remain a Jewish State and then act accordingly. The public is not stupid. They realize that a Jewish State with hostile Arabs living within cannot continue to exist.

6. Proverbs 1:7-9
Without the fear of God there is no point in acquiring knowledge. Eli Merzbach, a Bar-Ilan UniversityProfessor of Mathematics who lives in Shiloh, once said (basing himself on a passage in Maimonides) that only good God-Fearing or at least morally-upright people make scientific breakthroughs. I objected and brought forward some examples that I thought were to the contrary. Eli then said that the examples that I had adduced were those of technological improvements rather than real advancements in scientific knowledge. I still feel reservations about this claim but it is worth considering. Eli is involved in the world of science and in a position to know these things.

These days most people suffer because of problems they had with their parents and problems they cause for their children. With the fear of God and a little good will most problems can be solved or at least greatly alleviated. The best honor we can show our parents is to live honorably. Even if we have made great mistakes in the past every good deed and good intention we make in the present goes towards a rectification and a better world for ourselves, our parents, and our children. We need to think in terms of past, present, and future.

This is talking about respect. Someone who respects his parents will receive respect from others and will know how NOT to take negative aspects overduly to heart. Respect your father and mother means if necessary not receiving negative influences but only good positive ones.

7. Beth Goodtree: The Bush Plan for Israel: two ghettos, many pogroms
April 8, 2005
[Extracts Only: For Complete Article Go to Web Site]

President Bush, despite pronouncements to the contrary, is showing himself to be no friend of Israel. His plans, voiced through his toady, Condoleezza Rice, calls for Israel to be cut in two, give up her natural resources necessary for survival, be surrounded by hostile enemies, and not to allow for natural growth. And he is demanding that Israel's strengths be given to those bent upon her destruction.

The idea that Bush is hell-bent on turning the state of Israel into two non-viable ghettos leading to pogroms was hammered home to me in his latest pronouncement. He doesn't want Israel to build new housing on land that is clearly her territory: Maaleh Adumim.

Couple that with the announcement recently from Condoleeza Rice that Israel must cede land to make way for the second Palestinian State (the first one being Jordan) to be contiguous at the expense of Israel's contiguity. According to Ms. (Hypocrite) Rice, it is 'not reasonable' to expect the Arabs to have a viable state on non-contiguous pieces of land. However, she has demanded that Israel make itself into two and possibly three non-contiguous ghettos for the sake of the terrorist and murder-inciting Arabs demanding yet a second homeland.

Add to that, the fact that Bush has been forcing Israel to give away pieces of her territory that contain her major agricultural centers and aquifers.

In addition Bush, again through Rice, recently demanded that Israel give up her only defensive deterrent: her nuclear weapons.

By Arlene Kushner | April 7, 2005
Finally, what we are seeing is that the Palestinians not only have increased capacity to generate terror; they also have increased motivation. Experts haverepeatedly warned that withdrawal signifies weakness in Arab eyes. Perhaps no one has brought that message home more forcefully than Danny Rubinstein, precisely because he is a left wing journalist working for Ha'aretz, the most left wing of Israel's newspapers. At the Jerusalem Conference, on March 28, Mr. Rubinstein, an Arab speaker who monitors the Arab press, spoke about a Palestinian survey that indicated 75 percent of Palestinians view the "disengagement" as a great victory for them. They call it a retreat in the face of terror and are prepared now to secure additional territory.

2. A Judge's Poem
From: Wayne Laurence <>

The following is a poem written by Judge Roy Moore from Alabama.

Judge Moore was recently sued by the ACLU for displaying the Ten Commandments in his courtroom foyer. He has been stripped of his judgeship and now they are trying to strip his right to practice law in Alabama.

America the Beautiful,
or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride;
I'm glad they'll never see.

Babies piled in dumpsters,
Abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty;
your house is on the sand.

Our children wander aimlessly
poisoned by cocaine,
Choosing to indulge their lusts,
when God has said abstain.

From sea to shining sea,
our Nation turns away
From the teaching of God's love
and a need to always pray.

We've kept God in our temples,
how callous we have grown.
When earth is but His footstool,
and Heaven is His throne.

We've voted in a government
that's rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless Judges
who throw reason out the door,

Too soft to place a killer
in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby
before he leaves the womb.

You think that God's not angry,
that our land's a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait
before His judgment comes?

How are we to face our God,
from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do,
but stem this evil tide?

If we who are His children,
will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face
and mend our evil way:

Then God will hear from
Heaven and forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land
and those who live within.

But, America the Beautiful,
if you don't - then you will see,
A sad but Holy God
withdraw His hand from Thee.

~Judge Roy Moore

Pass this on and let's lift Judge Moore up in prayer. He has stood firm and needs our support.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. - Herm Albright

3. German Army Officer Honored in Israel for Saving Jews
>From Fred Kahn
SOURCE: BBC NEWS, April 11,2005
"A German army officer who saved hundreds of Jews from the Nazi
Holocaust in Lithuania has been honoured at a ceremony in Israel. The
story of Maj Karl Plagge was unearthed by a US doctor, Michael Good,
who began searching in 1999 for the Nazi who had saved his mother.
Maj Plagge sheltered about 1,200 Jews at a vehicle workshop while the
SS annihilated the Vilnius ghetto. Plagge, who died in 1957, was
honoured by the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial. It is unusual for Yad
Vashem to bestow the "Righteous Among the Nations" title on a German
who was part of the Nazi war machine, the memorial's chairman Avner
Shalev told the BBC News website. "He asked for more and more workers
and tried his best to keep the conditions relatively more humane," Mr
Shalev said. Plagge, who served in Vilnius from June 1941 to June
1944, ran a repair facility for German army (Wehrmacht) vehicles,
where hundreds of Jews worked. Ceremony Yad Vashem's Certificate of
Honour and medal were presented to Professor Johann-Dietrich Woerner,
President of Darmstadt Technical University, where Plagge was once a
student. Dr Good conducted painstaking research into Plagge's story

Plagge had no surviving relatives. Mr Good and his parents attended
the ceremony along with about 30 survivors. "I spent a lot of time
thinking and obsessing about my quest, learning about him and getting
him recognised," Mr Good said. The search for evidence was difficult,
as Mr Good had to collect testimonies from survivors scattered across
the globe. Mr Shalev said some of Plagge's key letters to the German
high command were discovered in archives only recently. "We wanted to
be sure he hadn't committed any crimes against humanity - that's why
it took so long... All the survivors said he had saved their lives."
Plagge hired about 1,200 Jewish workers from the ghetto - 500 men,
and the rest women and children, Mr Shalev said. Plagge told the high
command that keeping families together would boost the workers'
motivation - thereby defying the SS troops, who were killing Jews en
masse. Record scrutinised As the Red Army approached and the
extermination of Jews intensified, Plagge hinted at the fate awaiting
his workers - enabling about 250 of them to flee. Despite his
efforts, the SS took away the Jewish children. Survivor Pearl Good
points to Karl Plagge's name on the Wall of Honour (pic: Yad Vashem)

Plagge joins 20,757 men and women recognised by Yad Vashem for
rescuing Jews from annihilation by the SS. Of them, only 410 are
German and few of them were German soldiers. Yad Vashem approved the
honour for Plagge last July. It had twice rejected Mr Good's
petitions because it required evidence that the officer had taken
a "considerable and conscious risk" to save Jews. He joined Raoul
Wallenberg and Oskar Schindler in the roll of honour at Yad Vashem.
Schindler, hero of a 1993 movie called Schindler's List, saved up to
1,200 Jews by employing them in his munitions factory during the war.
Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat, saved many Hungarian Jews. Mr Good
recently published a book called The Search For Major Plagge: The
Nazi Who Saved Jews. "

Thousands of people arrived in Crawford, Texas on Monday to
demonstrate against US pressure on Israel to relinquish parts of the
Holy Land.

The rally, organized by Women in Green, Pastor Jim Vineyard, the
Freeman Center for Strategic Studies and others, coincided with a
meeting between US President George W. Bush and Israeli Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon.

Pastor Vineyard took the podium and addressed the Jews of Israel: "We
want to tell you that there is a groundswell movement starting, and we
will do everything we can to get the message to all Bible-believing
people in America that the only true position that Bible-believing
people in the US and around the world can take is that the Land of
Israel belongs to the sons of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - and not the
sons of Ishmael, Arafat and Abu Mazen."

MK Benny Elon addressed the audience via a loudspeaker hookup and told
them, "You are a source of inspiration for all of us, representing
courage and how not to be afraid, as G-d told Joshua when he was about
to enter the Land of Israel... Here, [people] have decided to devote
themselves to this cause whole-heartedly. Despite the Knesset
decision, we refuse to accept the fact that the die has been cast. It
is not so! With prayers to G-d, and with activities on the ground, we
will go from house to house, family to family, with special movies and
the like that we have prepared. Thousands of people will explain to
them why this disengagement is so catastrophic, and that this disaster
of uprooting Jews in our biblical land could, G-d forbid, be the
beginning of the end of the State of Israel. We will not accept it!
This is the true voice from Israel."

Elon explained the Bible's relevance to today's events: "I know that
you, Christians as well as Jews, know that the word of G-d is not only
not against realpolitik; on the contrary. We saw that those stupid
politicians who, against the Bible, brought us the Oslo Accords that
caused us so much bloodshed. We won't have it again! We know that
the only Roadmap is the Bible. We know that we have to warn all those
who live in Afula and Beit She'an [near the northern Shomron] and in
Ashkelon and Sderot [within range of Gaza] that they will now be in
the range of Kassam rockets."

"But we won't let it happen," MK Elon concluded. "We need your
support; you are our only strategic ally. With your prayers and your
activities, you help G-d to help us. I thank each of you individually
for coming. We shall overcome!"

The Pastor told HaLevi, "I was interviewed the other night, and the
reporter said, Rev. Vineyard, don't you know that the majority of
Israelis are for disengagement?" Vineyard said he then told the
Biblical story of the twelve spies, wherein ten out of twelve of the
leaders of the Jewish people advised the Jews to refrain from
conquering the land, while only two advised them to follow G-d's
directive to enter the land and inherit it. The pastor reminded the
audience that "those who followed that majority decision died in the
desert and had their bones bleached, while the next generation entered

lecturer who once belonged to a left-wing movement - said that Egypt
and Iran are becoming Israel's two biggest threats. He said that
Israel tends to concentrate only on the terrorist threat, and not
enough on the global security threats.

Egypt is arming at a furious pace, according to Shteinitz, and is
preparing for war with Israel. "The main military exercises that the
Egyptian Army carries out are simulations of war with Israel,"
Shteinitz said. "The gravest anti-Israel incitement, as well, is
found in Egypt."

An urgent request was sent to PM Ariel Sharon to bring to the
attention of US President Bush the prevalence of anti-Semitic material
in the new Palestinian Authority textbooks.

5. Proverbs 1:17-19

This is a well known principle. Those who harm others without reason are harming themselves. What you do you do to yourself.
If you destroy evil you destroy it in yourself. If you harm those who deserve no harm you harm yourself.

If you cheat others it will come back to you some time or other.
Sometimes however it happens that a person is in a situation where things are not entirely in his control. This too is hinted at in verse 1:17 above. You are like a bird, open your eyes and you will see if others are deceiving you. It may be that you wish to be deceived but God does not want you to be a victim. The decision is yours at some level. The Bible helps us learn how to be masters of our own fate. The Book of Proverbs gives us advice and the Book of Psalms strength.
Your soul is likened to a bird: Your soul sees what is good and that which is not. Be in touch with it.
In Hebrew "bird" is Tziporah. The wife of Moses was named (T)Zipporah. Isaac Mozeson once began a modernistic translation with Commentary of the Bible. He called "Zipporah "Birdie". He also suggest that the English word "sparrow" is derived from the Hebrew "tzipor" (bird).

1. Terrorist Plot to Poison British?
Brit-Am Comment: The note below is an extract from The Scotsman.
A similar report by Arutz-7 claimed that the terrorists were planning to target Jewish
addresses in Britain. We suspect that this information is inaccurate
and that the targets were public places in general.

"These were no playtime recipes. These are recipes that experts give credence to and experiments show work. They are scientifically viable and potentially deadly" - Nigel Sweeney, QC

Story in full AN AL-QAEDA suspect has been jailed for murdering a Special Branch detective and plotting to terrorize Britain with the deadly poison ricin, it was revealed yesterday.

Police believe Kamel Bourgass, 31, a failed Algerian asylum-seeker, planned to smear poison on door handles of cars and buildings in London and to use it in a spray or to contaminate consumer products.

His home-made chemical weapons laboratory, in a flat in Wood Green, north London, included recipes and ingredients to make ricin, cyanide and botulinum - one of the most toxic substances known to man - and a blueprint for a bomb.

Nine days after the discovery, in January 2003, DC Stephen Oake was killed when he was cornered in a flat in Manchester during a botched raid.

Described as a "dedicated and dangerous" terrorist, Bourgass was yesterday jailed for 17 years for plotting to make poisons and explosives.

It was also revealed yesterday that Bourgass was sentenced to life imprisonment following a trial last year for the murder of DC Oake and a further 15 years for the attempted murder of two police officers.

Last night, the Tories criticised the government, blaming its "chaotic" asylum policy for the failure to deport Bourgass after his application for asylum was finally rejected in 2001. David Davis, the shadow home secretary, described the killing of DC Oake as a "tragedy" which should not have happened.

Police believe Bourgass was part of a network of hundreds of Algerian terrorists spread across the West, thought to be linked to terror plots in the United States, France, Spain and Italy.

But the key breakthrough came in December 2002, after a tenth alleged co-conspirator, an Algerian called Mohamed Meguerba, revealed details when he was arrested in Algeria. He said he had known Bourgass in London.

Meguerba confessed to being a veteran of terrorist training camps in Afghanistan and to having had numerous personal meetings with al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.

He claimed that Bourgass had also been in a mujahideen training camp in Afghanistan and was then selected for training in the making of poisons at an al-Qaeda camp.

Bourgass, also known as Nadir Habra, went on the run after his attempts to make ricin and other poisons were discovered at the flat in Wood Green.

When he was finally caught, by chance, after a raid in a house in Manchester where police were looking for another suspect, his role in the plot - and his desire to escape - became desperately apparent.

Bourgass grabbed hold of a kitchen knife and killed DC Oake, stabbing him eight times. He also knifed three other policemen during his bloody escape bid.

Despite the best efforts of the intelligence services both in Britain and abroad, it is impossible, even now, to be sure of Bourgass’s real identity and investigations continue into who he is.

He had numerous false identities and at various times claimed to be from Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria, giving police dates of birth between 1973 and 1975.

2. Thomas Gray: U.S. behavior towards Israel
Subject: Appropriate Timing

Dear Wayne,

Your sending of the poem by Roy Moore comes at an appropriate time as it
seems like the U.S. leadership is doing harm to Israel. The warning that
Judge Moore gave about God withdrawing his hand of protection from the U.S.
is tied to U.S. behaviour towards Israel. The Lord blesses those who bless
Israel and curses those who curse Israel. I have believed for quite a while
that the only reason why the U.S. has continued with a measure of prosperity
in spite of their moral rebellion against God is that they have blessed
Israel and therefore God was obligated by His Word to continue to bless the
U.S. However, as soon as the U.S. ceases to bless Israel, then the judgment
will begin to fall. In this way, the safety of the U.S. is directly linked
to the safety of Israel. Thanks for the timely reminder to pray for this
critical situation.

Thomas Gray.

3. Rabbi Avraham Feld: Examples of Israel's Contribution to American Defence
First let us look at the financial value of Israel's intel (Rabi M. Politics and Foreign Aid, Prager: 1998). Many experts believe that the intel alone on Soviet arms was worth billions (such as Head of Air Force Intelligence General Keegan, and other Generals and admirals). Weapons systems such as the MiG 19,MiG25 MiG 21 MiG 23 and the accompanying electronics saved the US billions in research and development costs. The info on the MiG 21 alone, was worth 2 billion.
Now let us look at the strategic value of intel that, as will be shown caused shifts and switches and changes world wide. The defeat of the soviet Syrian air defense system in the '82 Operation Peace for the Galillee left Warsaw Pact countries defenseless in the air. Israel was then able to send documents pertaining to soviet war planes, and the US could further advance and develop appropriate air tactics and combat moves. Advanced information pertaining to Soviet tanks (T61) and Israeli methods of penetrating their armor was another gift handed from Israel to the US These two massive accomplishments generously shared with the US, together brought about profound changes in the balance of power between NATO and the Warsaw Pact.
Israels payment in return for its small loan included other goodies. Israel gave the US a Soviet radar system, another intelligence bonanza worth 6 million dollars and priceless amounts of time and manpower. Everything you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask about the SAM 6 missiles was now in the hands of the US.
The chain of consequences continued…..Soviet weapons were discredited and sales faltered. Meanwhile American arms sales skyrocketed. Israel's public acquisition of a weapon would send out signals to countries across the globe and a sudden increase in sales would be triggered. As Jesse Helms said, Israel is America's battleship in the middle east. It would have cost America untold billions to insert and support permanent expeditionary forces in the middle east. The average cost of fielding one NATO soldier is $160,000 per annum.
After all of these gifts, remember too that much of US aid to Israel was in the form of high-interest loans. All in all, the US has never cut a better deal. For me, the blessings America has received for helping Israel simply fulfills the Torah's verses: "Those who bless you.. I will bless." "And through you will be blessed all the families of the earth."

4. Proverbs 1:20-29










The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Even if we are inclined to be foolish or do not think things through by fearing not to transgress the will of God we often deliver ourselves from troubles.

Subject: Re: Jerusalem News-350--Red Sea
In case anyone is wondering how the sea fell in on the Egyptians after Israel was safely across:

Remember that a "pillar of fire" separated the Israelites from the Egyptians; so when the Israelites had crossed the Gulf of Aqaba, then the Egyptians tried to follow (but the pillar of fire in between melted the walls of ice on top of them). The crossing point in the Gulf of Aqaba is about 10 miles wide and 1,000 feet deep. The Bible says they crossed on dry land.

Some Extra Heft May Be Helpful, New Study Says


People who are overweight but not obese have a lower risk of death than those of normal weight, federal researchers are reporting today.

The researchers - statisticians and epidemiologists from the National Cancer Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - also found that increased risk of death from obesity was seen for the most part in the extremely obese, a group constituting only 8 percent of Americans.

And being very thin, even though the thinness was longstanding and unlikely to stem from disease, caused a slight increase in the risk of death, the researchers said.

The new study, considered by many independent scientists to be the most rigorous yet on the effects of weight, controlled for factors like smoking, age, race and alcohol consumption in a sophisticated analysis derived from a well-known method that has been used to predict cancer risk.

It also used the federal government's own weight categories, which define fatness and thinness according to a "body mass index" correlating weight to height, regardless of sex. For example, 5-foot-8 people weighing less than 122 pounds are underweight. If they weighed 122 to 164 pounds, their weight would be normal. They would be overweight at 165 to 196, obese at 197 to 229, and extremely obese at 230 or over.

Researchers had a full gamut of responses to the unexpected findings, being reported today in The Journal of the American Medical Association.

Some saw the report as a long-needed reality check on what they consider the nation's near-hysteria over fat.

"I love it," said Dr. Steven Blair, president and chief executive of the Cooper Institute, a research and educational organization in Dallas that focuses on preventive medicine.

"There are people who have made up their minds that obesity and overweight are the biggest public health problem that we have to face," Dr. Blair said. "These numbers show that maybe it's not that big."

Others simply did not believe the findings.

Dr. JoAnn Manson, chief of preventive medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, which is affiliated with Harvard, pointed to the university's own study of nurses that found mortality risks in being overweight and even greater risks in being obese. (That study involved mostly white women and used statistical methods different from those in the newly reported research.)

"We can't afford to be complacent about the epidemic of obesity," Dr. Manson said.

In fact, the new study addressed the risk only of death and not of disability or disease. There has long been conclusive evidence that as people move from overweight to obese to extremely obese, they are more and more likely to have diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels.

But the investigators said it was possible that being fat was less of a health risk than it used to be. They mentioned a paper, also being published today in the journal, in which researchers including Dr. Edward W. Gregg and Dr. David F. Williamson, both of the C.D.C., report that high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels are less prevalent now than they were 30 or 40 years ago, largely because of breakthroughs in medication.

As for whether there is truly a mortality risk in being underweight, Dr. Mark Mattson, a rail-thin researcher at the National Institute on Aging who is an expert on caloric restriction as a means of prolonging life, said it was not clear that eating fewer calories meant weighing so little, since some people eat very little and never get so thin. In any event, while caloric restriction may extend life, Dr. Mattson said, "there's certainly a point where you can overdo it with caloric restriction, and we don't know what that point is."

Some statisticians and epidemiologists said that the study's methods and data were exemplary and that the authors - Dr. Williamson and Dr. Katherine M. Flegal of the disease control centers, and Dr. Barry I. Graubard and Dr. Mitchell H. Gail of the cancer institute - were experienced and highly regarded scientists.

"This is a well-known group, and I thought their analysis and their statistical approaches were very good," said Dr. Barbara Hulka, an emerita professor of epidemiology at the University of North Carolina.

The study did not explain why overweight appeared best as far as mortality was concerned. But Dr. Williamson said the reason might be that most people die when they are over 70. Having a bit of extra fat in old age appears to be protective, he said, giving rise to more muscle and more bone.

"It's called the obesity paradox," Dr. Williamson said. But, he said, while the paradox is real, the reasons are speculative. "It's raw conjecture," he said.

The new study comes just 13 months after different researchers from the disease control centers published a paper warning that obesity and overweight were causing an extra 400,000 deaths a year and were poised to overtake smoking as the nation's leading preventable cause of premature death.

That conclusion caused an uproar, and scientists, particularly those who examine the consequences of smoking, questioned the study's methods. In January, the agency's researchers corrected calculation errors and published a revised estimate of 365,000 deaths.

Now the new study says that obesity and extreme obesity are causing about 112,000 extra deaths but that overweight is preventing about 86,000, leaving a net toll of some 26,000 deaths in all three categories combined, compared with the 34.000 extra deaths found in those who are underweight.

Dr. Donna Stroup, director of the Coordinating Center for Health Promotion at the C.D.C., noted that the previous study had used different data and different methods of analysis.

"Counting deaths is not an exact science," Dr. Stroup said.

For now, said Dr. Dixie Snider, the disease control centers' chief science officer, the agency will not take a position on what is the true number of deaths from obesity and overweight. "We're too early in the science," Dr. Snider said.

Dr. Stroup said of the new findings, "From a scientific point of view, they are a step forward." But she added that the agency considered illness that is linked to obesity to be just as important as the number of deaths.

"Mortality really only represents the tip of the iceberg of the magnitude of the problem," she said.

Estimating deaths due to overweight or obesity is a statistical challenge, the study's investigators said. The idea is to determine, for each person in the population, what would be the risk of dying if that person's weight were normal.

For people whose weight is already in that range, there would be no change in the risk, of course. But what happens to the risk for people whose weight is above or below the normal range? The idea is to control for factors like age, smoking and gender, and ask what would happen if only the weight were changed.

Now that the researchers have done their analysis, Dr. Williamson said, the message, as he sees it, is that perhaps people should take other factors into consideration when deciding whether to worry about the health risks of their weight.

Dr. Williamson, who is overweight, said that "if I had a family history - a father who had a heart attack at 52 or a brother who developed diabetes - I would actively lose weight."

But "if my father died at 94 and my mother at 97 and I had no family history of chronic disease," he said, "maybe I wouldn't be as concerned."

Dr. Barry Glassner, a sociology professor at the University of Southern California, had another perspective.

"The take-home message from this study, it seems to me, is unambiguous," Dr. Glassner said. "What is officially deemed overweight these days is actually the optimal weight."

We manage to do something on an extremely limited budget. Whatever is to be done
would seem (at least at present, considering the natural development of events) to need the preparatory
work of Brit-Am. Due to lack of funds we have trouble functioning
and therefore request assistance. People have helped and do help and this help is greatly appreciated.
Nevertheless the low level of assistance places us in a borderline position and limits our abilities
to do anything beyond endeavoring to keep going as we have been
and at present not really succeeding even at that.
[Because we are at such a level every ounce of assistance is indeed greatly appreciated and of very great potential
importance. Possibly our own limitations are at fault and there are some things we need to correct?
Perhaps the time has not come? At all events We will continue to try and do what we can.]
Whatever the case we can look at an organization such as "B'Tselem"
and compare its situation with ours.
"B'Tselem" (along with numerous other organizations and individuals who are backed by the
same sources) is actively working to undermine the State of Israel
and encourage suicidal tendencies within the Israel public.
"B'Tselem" is more than amply funded by organizations in the USA
and Western Europe i.e. from sources in lands we associate with

3. Rabbi Avraham Feld: "The Myth of American Aid"
 Let us begin to examine some actual
 facts about what America has done for Israel, and then what Israel has done
 for America.  The US contributes and lends to many countries. As we will
 see, the sum actually given to Israel is relatively quite small. The US
 contribution to NATO's budget is 170 billion dollars per annum. Another 70
 billion dollars goes to countries in the Far East. Let us compare that with
 what Israel receives from the US.  Israel receives less then one-half of a
 percent of the two sums mentioned above.  This means that in the 50 years
 of Israeli statehood, the accumulation of the sums given to Israel each
 year over these 50 years, equals less then just one year of aid given to
 NATO ( it equals actually less then 29% of this annual  contribution.) plus
 just one year of the budget allocated to the Far East.  These comparisons
 are quite dramatic, yet unlike Israel, never once have the Europeans or the
 Asians be made to feel weak, humiliated and dependent. Israel has been
 subject to all this and more.   This is a media trick designed to place
 Israel in an artificially contrived position of owing and kowtowing.
 Now, let us look at another media trick.  This trick adds to the
 distorted view of how much Israel actually receives, by vastly
 underreporting how much Israel does for America. Again, let us head straight
 for the facts.  In 1989 Under-Secretary of State Joseph Sisco stated that
 had the US not been receiving in return the full amount lent to Israel then
 the US would not have been  giving Israel a cent. This comment sets the
 stage by admitting in a circular fashion that America had been getting
 enormous payback from Israel. What was Israel in a position to give to the
 US?  Intelligence.  Intelligence of vast economic and strategic value.-
 with an emphasis on weaponry intel.  As stated by Ronald Reagan in
 1982,  "Were it not for American aid to Israel, the Soviets would be
 sitting at the Persian Gulf " (Middle East Policy Survey, July '82)
 President Reagan was referring to a dramatic chain of events that
 occurred as a consequence of aid given to Israel that brought about
profound changes in the balance of  power between NATO and the Warsaw Pact.

[Thanks to Israel] Soviet weapons were discredited
 and sales faltered.  Meanwhile American arms sales skyrocketed. Israel's
 public acquisition of a weapon would send out signals to countries across
 the globe and a sudden increase in sales would be triggered. As Jesse Helms
 said, Israel is America's battleship in the Middle East. It would have cost
 America untold billions to insert and support  permanent expeditionary
 forces in the Middle East. The average cost of fielding one NATO soldier is
 $160,000 per annum. .  These two massive accomplishments generously shared
 with the US, together brought about profound changes in the balance of
 power between NATO and the Warsaw Pact.  These two massive accomplishments
 generously shared with the US, together brought about profound changes in
 the balance of power between NATO and the Warsaw Pact.

Remember too  that much of US aid to Israel was
 in the form of high-interest loans. All in all, the US has never cut a
 better deal.  For me, the blessings America has received for
 helping Israel simply fulfills the Torah's verses:  "Those who bless you..
 I will bless." "And through you will be blessed all the families of the

4. Proverbs 1:30-2:1

Very often bad conduct leads to bad results. More often the bad results were clearly foreseeable and the person concerned was warned about them but did not (or could not) hearken.

People who depart from the true path often fall down in other ways. Ill-gotten gains are usually misspent. Foolish people who become well off often "live it up" without necessarily enjoying themselves. -On the contrary.  An obvious example is the use of drugs. Drugs can cost enormous amounts of money and end up killing the user while causing misery and suffering to those around them.  Incidentally marijuana and its offshoots may be relatively speaking much less destructive than other drugs but it is still a drug and causes harm.

God will look after you if you listen to HIM.

Treasure up words of wisdom and exhortations. They can save your life.

TEL AVIV [MENL] -- Israel's military has deployed a U.S.-origin technology
to check visitors and equipment coming from Egypt to the Gaza Strip.

Israel has been operating the SafeView Millimeter Wave Radar for deployment
at the border terminal in the southern Gaza Strip city of Rafah. The portal
system employs millimeter wave holographic technology to screen passengers
from Egypt for weapons and explosives.

The system was developed by SafeView in cooperation with Endwave Corp, both
of them U.S. companies. The companies said the portal system transmits
ultra-high frequency, low powered radio frequency waves as people pass
through the portal.

The waves penetrate clothing and reflect off of the person's skin and any
items being carried. A sensor array captures the reflected waves and uses a
desktop computer to analyze the information and produce a high-resolution,
three-dimensional image from the signals. The companies have not yet
launched full production of the system.

"Sometimes, the tests raise more questions than answers. X's
wife, Y, who also took the test, found that her ancestry was 13
percent native American, 87 percent European. That was odd because she
traced her ancestors back to Poland and Ireland and had no knowledge
of any native Americans in the family tree. It led her to interview
older relatives to try to solve the mystery.

The case also illustrates the limits of DNA testing, says Mark
Shriver, a professor of anthropology at Penn State and a consultant
for DNAPrint. Native Americans are believed to have immigrated from
central Asia thousands of years ago. These same central Asians also
migrated into eastern Europe, meaning that her "native American" DNA
could have come from there, he says. Greeks and Ashkenazi Jews also
may show significant percentages of "native American" ancestry for the
same reason. Eventually, a more sophisticated test will be able to
sort out these differences, Dr. Shriver adds."

is still worshipped in parts of the Sudan.
Note: Nimrod is also identified with the god Marduk both names contained the Hebrew root
MRD meaning "rebel". Marduk was also identified with Bel or Baal.

7. Ancient Parthian City Discovered
EHRAN, Apr. 27 (MNA) -- A team of Iranian and British archaeologists have discovered a Parthian era city on Minab plain in Iran's southern province of Hormozgan, the director of the team announced on Wednesday.
According to the Bible ten out of the twelve tribes of Israel split away(1-Kings 12:19), formed their own kingdom of "Israel" (1-Kings 12:20) and were exiled by the Assyrians (2-Kings 17:18) . They forget their identity (Hosea 1:9 7:8 Isaiah 49:21) and became the Lost Ten Tribes. In the future they will re-unite with the Jews of "Judah" (Ezekiel 37, Isaiah 11:13 Jeremiah 3:18) but until then they have a role of their own to fulfill. They were destined to be situated at the continental extremities of the earth such as North America, the British Isles, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa (Deuteronomy 33:13 Isaiah 24:16 26:15 41:8-9 49:6), to be the richest (Genesis 27:28 49:25 Deuteronomy 33:13-16 Hosea 2:8), and most powerful nations on earth (Numbers 24:8-7 Micah 5:7-9) and to control major international strategic bases (Genesis 22:16-17 24:60). All of these points together with numerous others show that descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes can only be found amongst Western Nations especially the English-speaking ones. The correctness of our interpretation of the relevant verses is confirmed by traditional Jewish sources and by the findings of up-to-date historical and scientific research. Your destiny may depend upon this information. You need to know.

The three Rs of Brit-Am:
a. Research: Proving where descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes are today.
b. Revelation: Revealing Research findings to others especially to those who are identifiable as "Lost Israelites" and to the Jews of "Judah".
c. Reconciliation: Working for the Recognition that the Lost Tribes and Judah have a mutual destiny and common origin and interest
and therefore need to accept Israelite identify and uniqueness of each other.

1. The USA also receives from Israel
From: Women in Green <>
Subject: In many ways, Israel is the giver and the U.S. is the receiver By
Yoram Ettinger

Statements made by and the conduct of Israel’s leaders since 1993 create the false impression that Israeli-American ties constitute a one-way relationship.

The presumption is that America gives and Israel receives, leading to Israel’s inferior position and the alleged compulsion to follow the State Department dictates.

However, Former Secretary of State and NATO forces commander Alexander Haig refuted this claim, saying he is pro-Israeli because Israel is the largest American aircraft carrier in the world that cannot be sunk, does not carry even one American soldier, and is located in a critical region for American national security.

On our 57th Independence Day, Israel and the United States enjoy a two-way relationship. Israel is like a start-up company that enjoys the kindness of the American investor, but yields much greater profits than the investment.

Every day, Israel relays to the U.S. lessons of battle and counter-terrorism, which reduce American losses in Iraq and Afghanistan, prevent attacks on U.S. soil, upgrade American weapons, and contribute to the U.S. economy.

Senator Daniel Inouye recently argued Israeli information regarding Soviet arms saved the U.S. billions of dollars. The contribution made by Israeli intelligence to America is greater than that provided by all NATO countries combined, he said.

Meanwhile, the vice president of the company that produces the F16 fighter jets told me Israel is responsible for 600 improvements in the plane’s systems, modifications estimated to be worth billions of dollars, which spared dozens of research and development years.

Israel’s utilization of American arms guarantees our existence, but at the same time gives U.S. military industries a competitive edge compared to European industries, while also boosting American military production, producing American jobs, and improving America’s national security.

Japan and South Korea, for example, preferred the “Hawkeye” spy plane and the MD-500 chopper, both purchased and upgraded by Israel, over comparable British and French aircraft.

Indeed, innovative Israeli technologies have a similar effect on American civilian and agricultural industries, which view Israel as a successful research and development site.

As early as 1952, U.S. Army Chief-of-Staff Omar Bradley called for the integration of Israel into the Mediterranean Basin area, in light of the country’s location and unique capabilities.

In 1967, Israel held back a radical Arab, pro-Soviet offensive, which threatened to bring about the collapse of pro-American Arab regimes and disrupt oil supply, thus severely undermining the American standard of living.

In 1970, Israel brought about the withdrawal of Syrian forces from Jordan, at a time when the U.S. was tied up by wars in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, thus preventing the fall of the pro-American Hashemite regime and a possible domino effect that could have reached Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states.

The 1976 raid in Uganda that freed Israeli passengers of an Air France flight hijacked by terrorists provided America with a backwind in the war on international terror, while in 1977 Israeli intelligence provided the intelligence information that foiled Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s plan to assassinate Egyptian President Anwar Sadat .

Notably, Sadat would later go on to make peace with Israel, paving the way for other agreements between Israel and the Arabs.

In 1982, Israel destroyed Soviet anti-aircraft batteries in Lebanon that were considered immune to American weapons. Israel promptly shared the operation’s lessons, estimated to be worth billions of dollars, changing entirely the global balance of power in the process and contributing to the Soviet Union’s eventual disintegration.

In 1981, Israel bombed the Iraqi nuclear reactor, providing the U.S. with the option of engaging in conventional wars with Iraq in 1991 and 2003 and preventing a possible nuclear war and a terrible price of thousands killed.

In 2005, Israel provides America with the world’s most extensive experience in homeland defense and warfare against suicide bombers and car bombs. American soldiers train in IDF facilities and Israeli-made drones fly above the “Sunni Triangle” in Iraq, as well as in Afghanistan, providing U.S. Marines with vital intelligence.

Without Israel, the U.S. would have been forced to deploy tens of thousands of American troops in the eastern Mediterranean Basin, at a cost of billions of dollars a year. Had Israel been located in the Persian Gulf, the U.S. would have been spared the need to send hundreds of thousands of soldiers to the region, thanks to Israel’s deterrence and operational capabilities.

Indeed, Congress leaders, Vice President Cheney, and Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld are aware of Israel’s unique contribution to U.S. interests. In fact, they all wonder why the post-1993 Israel does not use its impressive contribution as leverage, in sharp contrast to the pre-1993 Israel.

2. Priceless antiquities dug up in Iran

Tehran - Archaeologists at a dig on a farm in western Iran have uncovered a skeleton with a solid gold mask in a bronze coffin in what could be the first of a fresh wave of Parthian-era discoveries.

"This finding is without precedence in our province," the head of the Lorestan cultural heritage organisation, Sirous Ebrahimi, told AFP.

"We were told by locals that some people were searching the area with metal detectors, so we rushed to the area, and sealed it off," he explained.

He said the coffin dates back between 1 700 and 2 200 years.

The Parthian Empire occupied all of modern Iran, Iraq and Armenia and parts of modern Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan from 247 BC to 224 AD.

However, archaeologists have said little in terms of written primary sources have been uncovered, adding weight to the fresh discovery of artifacts.

Both Ephraim and Manasseh (Britain and the USA but especially Britain in this matter)

We discussed this years ago in our book "Ephraim"
and in shorter form in our commentary to Hosea chapter nine:
especially Hosea 9:5-9:9
The simple meaning may not be so clear but the prophet definitely is speaking to Ephraim.
He is warning Ephraim against Egypt and against making pacts with people of the "mad prophet"
who is referred to as Machmad [i.e. Mahomad]. Ephraim is warned that the people of the "mad prophet"
hate him and are liable to bring disaster upon him.

Subject: Fwd: Europe and Israel-A Painful History
From: Joseph Puder <>

By: Joseph Puder*
[Excerpts Only]

...It was on
European soil that the Holocaust occurred, committed
by Christian-Europeans who murdered Six
Million European Jews, 2/3 of Europe’s Jews.

The same continent spawned national liberation
movements such as Giuseppe Garibaldi’s
modern Italy that inspired the creation of the Zionist
movement at the end of the 19th century. It
was Napoleon’s conquest of Europe and the secularizing
influence of the French revolution that
led to the granting of civil rights to Jews.
Britain’s Balfour’s declaration called for “a homeland
for the Jews in Palestine” stimulating the
establishment of the Jewish State.

European guilt following the Holocaust put France,
Italy, and most of Europe on Israel’s side,
and Atlee’s Labor government on the side of the Arabs.
Britain barred Holocaust survivors from
entering Palestine while the Soviets through the
Czechs sold weapons to Israel. Europe did not like
the Jews and hoped that they will all go to Palestine
with its blessings. This was before Europe sold its
soul for oil and greed, and while the continent lay in
ruins dependent on America’s Marshall Plan and the US
protective umbrella against Soviet expansionism.

From 1946-1958, The French Fourth Republic was a close
ally of Israel. The late 1940’s and 1950’s was the
golden age in Franco-Israeli relations. France
provided Israel with aircrafts (Vet ours, Mystere,
Mirage and Nord-Atlas’) and tanks (MX). It also
helped built the nuclear facility in Dimona. This
was a period when French music (Companion de la
chanson, Edith Piaf) and the performing arts (Brigit
Bardo was the sex symbol not Hollywood stars)
dominated Israel. Israelis looked to France for
comfort not America.

The French at that time adored Israel, as did many
other Europeans, Israel was the “courageous
little country” facing the Muslim fanatics of the Arab
world. This was long before political correctness
came to dominate European societies. At the time, the
French left identified with the Socialist, egalitarian
Israel, and abhorred Arab nationalism and Nasserite
populism. The French Left tended to be pro-Jewish
since the Dreyfuss trial in 1896. It elected the
first Jewish Socialist president- Leon Blum (1936) and
in the 1950’s another Jewish prime Minister- Mendes

In Germany, Konrad Adenauer was elected as first
post-war chancellor (1949-1963). Adnauer and Israel’s
first Prime Minister David Ben Gurion met in secret to
hammer out the Nazi Reparation agreement. British
relations with Israel improved in the mid 1950’s
following the demise of the pro-Western Arab regimes
in Egypt (1952) and Iraq (1958) and in 1956, Israel
partnered with France and Britain in what Israel
called the Sinai Campaign and France and Britain
considered the Suez Affair. The US under president
Eisenhower took a decidedly pro-Arab position in
saving Egypt’s president Abdul Nasser from being
defeated and deposed.

The relationship between Europe and Israel began to
change after the Six Days war of June 1967. French
president Charles De Gaulle elected in 1958,
(antecedence in the French political Right) had little
love for Jews or the Jewish State. He had even more
hostility towards America and to a lesser extend
towards Britain. He vowed to avenge France (his)
supposed humiliation at the hands of the Americans
during WWII. In his grandiose attempt to make France
and Europe a third world polar, (between the
East-Soviet Empire and America) he decided to abandon
Algeria, the most lucrative French Colony with over 1
million Frenchmen.

In the wake of the Six Days War, De Gaulle
ordered an embargo on French weapons sales to Israel.

Europe protected by a US defensive umbrella resented
Israel’s military actions, especially one’s involving
victorious Jews. Israel in the eyes of the European
was meant to be a docile, and appeasing-one big
refugee camp for Jews. Israel’s dynamic society and
its military success did not fit well with the new
Europe focused on trade, economic development,
leisure, peace, and guilt over its colonial past.

As long as America protected them, Europeans had the
luxury of spending little on their defense and a lot
on contributions to Arafat, the Palestinian
terrorists, and other Arab dictatorships. America did
Europe’s fighting in Europe whether in Bosnia, Kosovo
or in Africa’s Somalia. Europe’s leftist
intellectuals could afford to side with Saddam Hussain
against Bush, since America was not going to launch a
terrorist campaign against Europe while the
Arab-Muslims do.

Appeasing dictators and mass murderers has become a
European trademark. European states enjoyed the trade
benefits Saddam Hussain, Assad, and the Islamic
Republic of Iran offered them while paying lip service
to human rights. The “peace-loving” Europeans did not
mind Saddam’s genocidal campaign against the Kurds and
Shiites, nor were they bothered by the genocide in
Rwanda, Cambodia or the Sudan. The European leftist
intellectual were most vociferous however about the
“genocide” in Jenin. Their distaste for Israel owes
a great deal to Israel’s close alliances with the US.

Europe refused to grant the US transit access on
flights to Israel during the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
Relations between Europe and Israel worsened in 1982
during the War in Lebanon. Europe resented Israel’s
use of force against Palestinian terrorists. The
Europeans condemned Israel’s “militarism.” Europe,
which has practically replaced the use of force with
reliance on law (Hague’s International Court) and
institutions such as the UN, views Israel as a modern

Unlike the US, Europe does not look for strategic
allies. The Europeans are content to leave it to the
US to wage war against Islamic terrorism. Europe
today seeks economic partners instead.
The Arab world with its 300 million people is
potentially a huge market for the EU, and when coupled
with access to Arab oil and a huge domestic Islamic
population (about 10% of total) in the EU countries,
it becomes apparent why Europe has chosen once again
appeasement of Arab-Islamic terrorism and triumphalism
rather than defeating it. The Europeans contend that
they will solve the problem of terrorism by political
mean rather than force (remember Munich 1938?). In
view of such attitudes, it is understandable why
Europeans voted Israel in 2002 as the “greatest threat
to world peace.”

To justify its loss of soul, religion, and lack of
basic morality, Europe has returned to its virulent
virus of anti-Semitism albeit, under the guise of
anti-Zionism. The Palestinians take the place of the
crucified Jesus, and Israel has assumed the role of
the collective Jew. Replacement Theology still in the
sub-conscience of secular Europe is at an immense
discomfort with a strong Israel able to defend itself.

For Israel, Europe is nevertheless essential to its
economic viability. Israel’s growing trade with
Europe is over $24 billion. It accounts for 2/3 of
Israel’s total foreign trade. Europe’s economic power
is growing and it represents the largest market in the
world. Should Europe become a military power as well,
it has the potential in several decades hence to
become rival of the US if not replace it altogether as
a super-power. Israel’s proximity to Europe might
subject it to various sanctions and even existential
treat if the EU and the Arab League states combine

JERUSALEM [MENL] -- Egypt has been the only Arab state that has maintained
plans to attack Israel, a senior Israeli parliamentarian says.

Yuval Steinitz, chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense

ensure capability to attack Israel. Steinitz said Egypt's operational plans

strike Israeli military and civilian targets. He said the Egyptian targets
include Israeli air force bases.

BAGHDAD [MENL] -- Syrian intelligence was said to have trained numerous
Sunnis in abductions, executions and car bombings against the U.S.-led
coalition and the interim government in Baghdad.
For the first time, Iraqi authorities have presented details of Syrian
support for and sponsorship of insurgency groups as well as their attacks on
the U.S. military and its Iraqi allies. Authorities have presented Syrian
and Iraqi nationals who recalled their recruitment and training by Syrian
intelligence for the anti-American operation in Iraq.

In February, Iraqi state television broadcast the confessions of nearly a
dozen people who identified Syria as their employer in the insurgency in
Iraq. The men included a purported Syrian intelligence officer and his aides
recruited to infiltrate Iraq in a mission that reflected Syrian fear that it
was also a target of the United States.

The Syrian-sponsored operatives said Syria and the Saddam Hussein regime
planned the insurgency nearly two years before the war against Baghdad in
March 2003. They said much of the training of the Syrian-sponsored
insurgents took place in Pakistan.

Subject: Pollard

Jonathon Pollard and Israel

By Prof. Paul Eidelberg

[Extracts Only]
Can it be that the age-old hatred of Jews and the present demonization of Israel are symbolized by the cruel treatment of Jonathan Pollard, now in his twentieth year of imprisonment?

Contrary to his anti-Semitic detractors, Pollard was not indicted for treason. And contrary to CIA allegations, American national interests and CIA operators were not compromised by his passing classified information to Israel concerning Iraq and other Arab dictatorshipsinformation the US deliberately withheld from Israel in violation of the Strategic Cooperation Agreement between the two countries.

Pollard received a life sentence without benefit of trial, as the result of a plea bargain which he honored but which the government abrogated. After sentencing, he was thrown into solitary confinement for seven years, beginning in a prison facility for the criminally insane. He has been repeatedly subjected to physical as well as psychological torture. In one prison he remained naked for five weeks, without bedding or clothing. Every few days he was made to sit chained hand and foot to an iron chair, while a high-pressure spay of ice cold water was aimed directly at his naked and immobilized body.

Contrast the barbaric treatment and life sentence of Jonathan Pollard, an American Jew who spied for Israel, America’s ally, with the humane and absurdly brief incarceration of gentile Americans who spied for America’s enemies. Moral reversal? Yes, but also anti-Semitism.

Both are displayed by the American State Department’s hostile attitude toward Israel versus its benign attitude toward Israel’s enemy, the Palestine Liberation Organizationa consortium of terrorist groups that supported Saddam Hussein before and during the American invasion of Iraq. Anti-Semitism is clearly an ingredient of US policy in the Middle East.

Aside from more directly related factors in the cruel and unusual punishment of Pollardwhich factors have recently been reported by Caroline Glickponder the following.

The Oslo or Israel-PLO Agreement of 1993 is based on the policy of “territory for peace,” a policy that has produced not peace but some 10,000 Jewish casualties. What has this to do with Jonathan Pollard?

The deadly policy of “territory for peace” is a betrayal of the Jewish people’s birthright. It has made Israel and Jews appear despicable and has thereby fostered the American government’s ceaseless degradation of Jonathan Pollard. Anti-Semitism has low and high tides, which can be influenced by the policies of Israeli governments and the behavior of its prime ministers.

PA TV Sermon: Subjugate Christians, Exterminate Jews!
16:51 May 18, '05 / 9 Iyar 5765

[] A sermon broadcast last Friday on PA (Palestinian Authority) television called for the subjugation of all Christian countries under Islam and the extermination of every Jew.

The Moslem cleric, Ibrahim Mudayris, told his Arab audience, “The day will come and we shall rule America, Britain, we shall rule the entire world, except the Jews.” He explained that, unlike the Christian countries, Jews cannot be placed under subjugation. He told PA television viewers that the only fate awaiting Jews is death by extermination.

The sermon’s content clearly indicates that the PA under Mahmoud Abbas has not met its commitment to stem anti-Semitic and anti-Israel incitement in his media. The cleric’s sermon was as virulent and hateful as any of the Jew-hatred published by the Nazi German regime, making the Palestinian Authority one of the primary proponents of anti-Semitic propaganda in the world today.

In the sermon, which was translated by Itmar Marcus and Barbara Cook of Palestinian Media Watch, Ibrahim Mudayris reiterated many of the oft-repeated PA justifications for the anticipated genocide, including the following hate message:

* 1. The Jews have inherently evil character traits that Muhammad warned Muslims about in the Koran.
* 2. The Jews have been the source of conflict throughout all of history: “The Jews are a virus similar to AIDS, from which the entire world is suffering.”
* 3. The persecution of Jews throughout history is presented as a natural response of self-defense by numerous countries against the evil of the Jews. Britain, France, Portugal, Czarist Russia, Nazi Germany, all persecuted and/or expelled Jews as acts of self-defense and revenge.
* 4. Zionism was created by Britain in order solve its Jewish problem by sending them to Israel.
* 5. God has predetermined that the Jewish problem will be solved with the extermination of the Jews.
* 6. God has predetermined that the Christian-Islam interactions will end with today's Christian countries coming under Islam rule.
* 7. Israel has no right to exist and will be destroyed.

Note: One either watches movies or one does not.
These days it is difficult to find ANY movie that does not contain
morally objectionable segments.
One may be better off not watching them at all
but this depends on the alternatives available.

I saw the movies. They reflect aspects of present Western Culture
of which I am a part but I acknowledge such viewing may be problematic:

Interesting. Well done. Entertaining. Historically Correct on the whole.
Possible pro-Homosexual agenda of producers.
Depicts Alexander as bi-sexual which is probably incorrect.
According to the historian W.W. Tarn, the objective sources, and my own limited understanding.
Alexander was actually heterosexual. He despised homosexuality himself though he did not attempt
to change others in that regard and went along with the Hellenistic attitude he had been brought up in.
After the movie came out there were protests In Greece at the misrepresentation of Alexander as a homosexual

Story about the Scottish hero William Wallace and the struggle for independence from English tyranny.
Good movie, good story but I do not like it. Depicts Anglo-Norman rulers as
tyrants who raped brides on their first night. No known evidence of such behavior
in the British Isles. Rabbi Feld used the movie for its educational value
on the qualities of bravery, loyalty, etc.
I disagree. Sorry.

The Patriot.
Movie like "Braveheart" has Mel Gibson in star role about the American War of Independence.
Depicts British as Nazi-types. Who knows? We all need our myths and there is some truth sometimes in some of them.
On the whole the Movie has a positive message.

Historical fiction but interesting and entertaining and has educational value.
It is worth seeing. Highly rated despite faults. Arouses historical imagination and curiosity.
Depicts Picts as barbaric "Woads" painted blue. Misleading.
Some of those "Woads" may have been ancestors of mine.

Story is good, stays faithful to Homer and as such is educational.
Worth seeing. No nudity but one erotically suggestive scene.

"The Merchant of Venice"
Very good. Well worth seeing. My eldest son did not like it,
said it depicts Jews in a leering negative light. Maybe right but historically
in some limited instances correct.
Facts: There was an instance in Italy where a Christian sued a Jew in Court for a pound of flesh
(as shown by the English Jewish historian Cecil Roth).
Italian playwrights took the incident and turned it around depicting the Jew as suing the Christian.
In those days there was no TV, there were no newspapers, no printing presses, books were rare and expensive,
and plays occupied the major role of the Media today. The story of the Merchant of Venice was considered to be
truthful throughout Christian society. Christopher Marlowe in England took the Italian versions of the story
and produced a reportedly very anti-Semitic version for English audiences.
William Shakespeare was a rival of Marlowe and so he produced
"The Merchant of Venice" as it is known to us in which the Jew, Shylock,
maybe a negative personality but he would have had some redeeming features
in the eyes of some English audiences..
Consider the remark of the German Jewish poet ,Heinrich Heine:
<<When I saw this Play at Drury Lane, there stood behind me in the box a pale, fair Briton, who at the end of the Fourth Act, fell a-weeping passionately, several times exclaiming, "The poor man is wronged!" . . . When I think of those tears I have to rank "The Merchant of Venice" with the Tragedies, although the frame of the piece is decorated with the merriest figures of Masks, of Satyrs, and of Cupids, and the Poet meant the Play for a Comedy. . . . Wandering dream-hunter that I am, I looked round every where on the Rialto to see if I could not find Shylock. . . . But I found him nowhere on the Rialto, and I determined to seek my old acquaintance in the Synagogue. The Jews were then celebrating their day of Atonement.... Although I looked all round the Synagogue I nowhere discovered the face of Shylock. I saw him not. But towards evening when, according to Jewish belief, the gates of Heaven are shut, and no prayer can then obtain admittance, I heard a voice, with a ripple of tears that were never wept by eyes. It was a sob that could come only from a breast that held in it all the martyrdom which, for eighteen centuries, had been borne by a whole tortured people. It was the death-rattle of a soul sinking down dead-tired at heaven's gates. And I seemed to know the voice, and I felt that I had heard it long ago, when, in utter despair, it moaned out, then as now, "Jessica, my child!" -- HEINE, HEINRICH, 1838-56?, Sammtliche Werke, vol. v, p. 324.
[Heine incidentally appears to have held that a part of the Gentile population of the British isles and Western Europe
were physical descendants of the Ancient Hebrews].

Lord of The Ring.
Trilogy. Very good entertainment. Worth seeing.
Invented mythology written by a scholar of old Anglo-Saxon literature

Hi David, Shallom!

Ira Quirke.....

All 25 EU members must ratify the text for it to take effect as planned by Nov. 1, 2006. Nine already have done so: Austria, Hungary, Italy, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain.
France in a referendum has rejected it and the Netherlands is expected to do likewise.

2. Jessie Reil: THE PATRIOT is historically accurate!
Subject: Re: Jerusalem News-355

This is a historical reference for the movie THE PATRIOT to those who are unfamiliar with American history during the 1770 to 1780 period in interacting with the British Empire, French Empire, Spanish Empire and Indian Empires in America.

THE PATRIOT is not a myth, but based upon historical facts. Whether to term the British "nazi types" is a broad question, the actual facts in historical British documents denote the following truths in the British war against Americans.

Fact: The British willed to keep the "Ohio frontier" which was game rich and not inhabited by anyone a hide and fur peltry to profit off of in Indian trade.

In the frontier, the British at Detroit under orders from the Crown issued bounty upon American men, women and children scalps of 50 pounds each which the Indian nations collected in frequent massacres.

At one point, there was an all out war for a complete removal of all Americans would be undertaken with the method being genocide of all Amerians west of the border states. No one was to survive.

The Indians in complicity with the European empires lied and conspired to commit the most heinous kidnapping, torture by gauntlet ( a person ran a line of Indians with spears and clubs and if they survived they were sent to other Indian villages to run the gauntlet until they were burned at the stake), rapes, kidnapping of children and murder by the tomahawk chop.

The French were much more feared in their warfare than the British as their methods were much worse.

Finally in one example, in St. Claire's defeat in the Ohio, this American general was overrun with his forces by Indian and British forces. Almost 1000 men and the "company followers who were women" were massacred. One soldier on a burial detail in the winter described the scene of wolves feeding on the dead was common and the actual scene looked "like a pumpkin patch in the fall" with all those red scalps still shining in the sun.
The bodies were stripped clean and scalped.

To describe THE PATRIOT as mythology is uninformed of actual history.

For reference, read Theodore Roosevelt's The Winning of the West for sources and a complete account of the western frontier war which touches in point on THE PATRIOT in proving it was history carried out by the British government.

Extracts from a recent posting by Steven Shamrak
Silence Doesn’t Work!

Someone must Scream, because the lives of Jewish people in danger again! You have to ask:

1. Where does the policy of endless concessions, uncertainty and stupidity of Withdrawal leads israel to? Self-destruction!

2. What results had previous concessions brought to Israel and Jewish people? Escalation of terror and increase of anti-Semitism world-wide!

Only strong, decisive actions against our enemies can stop terror, re-gain self-respect and respect of others, including anti-Semites.

The rights of Jewish people to live in peace on all Jewish land must not be the subject of the Left or Right of politics, or be subjected to political revisionism of the history.

People have to consider the History (ancient and modern), Knowledge of facts, human Psychology before they form opinion about Arab-Israel conflict. The time has come to say - "Enough"!

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak.

“What 'illegal settlements'? Gaza, Judea and Samaria are Jewish lands. As well as East of the river Jordan, they were included in the 'Palestine' mandate! Jews were robbed in 1948 and it is time to see it and take to factual account anti-Jewish propaganda, even if some it is perpetrated by Jews.”

Abbas has Flagged the Intensification of Terror.

‘Peace’ in Action. The 52nd Arab Teenage Bomber this year apprehended at a checkpoint outside Nablus last Tuesday caring two pipe bombs. The boy was spotted near the Hawara checkpoint. Two days before, a 14-year-old Arab wearing a bomb belt was arrested at the same checkpoint.

PA Disables Anti-Terror Device.
Hamas can Attack Britain. Hamas has several cells inside the United Kingdom and is capable of attacking the country, a senior Israeli security official told in response to a sermon, broadcast live on PA television, in which a cleric associated with Hamas threatened terror attacks against Britain. Sheikh Ibrahim Mudeiras said in a live sermon broadcast May 13, "We take this opportunity to hold Britain accountable and say there is revenge we can never forget! We cannot forgo the revenge we want to exact from Britain…”

PA website features 'Protocols’. The "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" is a forgery written by a German author in the 19th century that purports to detail a Jewish plot for world domination. The Russian secret police stirred up anti-Semitism with it. The link was found with a list of historical sources about Zionism on official Palestinian Authority's website. As part of the ‘road map’ peace plan, the PA has pledged to stop inciting against Israel. (This is the ‘Map’ that leads nowhere!)

5. Caroline Glick: Is America abandoning the fight? (Brief Extracts Only)
The Jerusalem Post - May 30, 2005

The top story in Sunday's Washington Post reported that the Bush administration is revising its counter-terrorism strategy. Whereas since the September 11 attacks the US has concentrated its efforts on physically destroying al-Qaida to prevent it from carrying out another major attack by arresting and killing its operatives and leaders, now, according to the report, the US will be widening the focus to include contending with the threat of militant Islam generally by trying to counteract it as a social and political force among Muslims worldwide.

THEN THERE is Saudi Arabia.

During Abdullah's visit last month at Bush's ranch in Crawford, the only issue on the table from the US side was the price of oil. Democracy, human rights and Saudi support for terror and the insurgency in Iraq were all ignored. Bush made no mention of the fact that one of the members of Abdullah's entourage was barred from entering the US because of his presence on the terror watch list, or of the fact that Saudi authorities rounded up some 40 Christians in the weeks before Abdullah's visit for the crime of practicing Christianity in a private home.

In its dealings with the Saudis, the Americans apparently feel that they are between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand, Saudi oil profits finance global jihad. On the other hand, with the world's largest known petroleum reserves, the Saudis exert enormous power over the global economy. If the US presses too hard on Saudi support for terrorism, they can shut down the wells and raise oil prices from their current $50 per barrel to $100 per barrel, plunging the world into a global depression.

Yet according to the Set America Free Coalition an unprecedented alliance made up of senior US security experts, labor unions and environmentalist groups if the US wished it could, for the mere cost of $12 billion over the next four years, move rapidly to end its dependency on foreign oil by developing alternatives to fossil fuel like ethanol and methanol and subsidizing hybrid cars that run on a mix of oil and electricity. The fact that to date, the Bush administration's energy policy involves securing its access to foreign oil, building more refineries and drilling in Alaska, shows clearly that the president and his advisers have yet to decide to deal with Saudi Arabia in a serious manner.

FINALLY, there is the evolving US policy toward the Palestinian Authority.

Bush reportedly told Abbas that if he rounds up wanted terrorists, the US will force Israel to uproot all unauthorized Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria immediately after Israel throws 10,000 of its citizens out of their homes in Gaza and northern Samaria this summer. The administration is now even backing a PA initiative to bring 1,500 terrorists from Jordan otherwise known as the Badr Brigade from the Palestine Liberation Army into Judea and Samaria. All this the US is doing in spite of the fact that Abbas has done nothing to thwart or combat terrorists since taking office. To the contrary, rather than outlaw Hamas he has upgraded it to the status of political party.

A revised US strategy toward fighting global jihad that placed in the crosshairs the regimes that indoctrinate hundreds of millions of people to believe in jihad would be a welcome policy development. And yet, from the Bush administration's actions on the ground from Teheran to Riyadh to Ramallah, it seems that rather than placing these terror regimes in the crosshairs, the president and his advisers are strengthening them. If this is the case, then Israel is in for one of the toughest periods in its history.

6. Abortions are performed by enemies of Israel
More than 150 abortions are preformed daily in Israel two thirds of them on married women.
Studies show that most women who undergo abortions really do not want to do so but are under pressure
from outside influences or suffering from temporary depression etc.
In most cases proper counselling and proffered assistance would prevent the abortion.
So called "Pro-Choice" advocates who favor abortion on demand in effect wish to perpetuate
a situation whereby the choice is taken away from the natural mother and given into the hands of
the husband, boyfriend, female peer pressures, ideological libertarian social workers, etc.
The State of Israel suffers greatly due to this unnecessary loss of life
for which the "freethinkers" are responsible.
All Israelite Nations today suffer from the same problem most of them even more than the State of Israel
Those of those who believe in the Bible are against abortion since it is a form of homicide.
Nevertheless the struggle against abortion should be on two fronts:
a. To forbid abortions altogether
b. If abortions are permitted at the least the women should know of alternative solutions.
They should also know of potential dangers. Many gynecological problems and cases of infertility
are caused by abortions despite their legalization and medical sanction.

(Genesis 9:6),
The Hebrew has ""Whoever kills a man by a man ("ba-Adam" also meaning "in a man") his blood shall be spilt", meaning either that the killer shall be killed "by means of a man" (The prefix "ba" or "bi" in Hebrew being similar to the English "by") or that anyone who kills a man "inside of" a man (i.e. a human foetus) shall be killed. Both meanings are understood to be applicable and not contradictory but rather complementary.
The verse therefore may be read in the Hebrew to say:

7. Desecraters of Sabbath Cause as Much Damage as Arabs?
It is forbidden to work on Sabbath. With the introduction of the automobile
Orthodox Jewish Sages decided that for Jews driving on the Sabbath and Festival Days should be
Nowadays the majority of traffic accidents in the State of Israel occur on Sabbaths and Festival Days.
The loss of life and limb from these accidents (not to mention the vast economic damage and social
disruption) is greater than that occasioned by all the Arab Wars and acts of terror against Israel.
Thanks however tot he influence of the Ultra Orthodox on the rest of Israeli Society
Sabbath desecration (and resulting traffic accidents etc) is much less than it otherwise would be.
Incidentally a not insignificant proportion of traffic accidents in Israel are caused by Arab drivers
and in some cases the strong impression is that the "accidents" were not all accidental.
Arabs Involved in Proportionately More Fatal Accidents
12:04 May 20, '05 / 11 Iyar 5765
[] Police statistics show that while Israeli-Arabs hold 13% of Israel's drivers licenses,
they are involved in 21% of the fatal traffic accidents in the country.

The statistics (and the article) do not discuss the case in Judea and Samaria
where most drivers are "Non-Israeli" Arabs and traffic accidents (in which Jews
are often victims) are a problem.

A good friend of my son was walking on the side of a road (the day after he had
bought his first and only home) when an Arab truck deliberately ran him down and killed him.

For the record, the above is a leftist pipedream. The road to energy independence is to open up the Alaska oilfields, allow more offshore drilling, and build more nuclear power plants. It is the environmentalists who are holding these measures back and keeping us dependent on Arab oil. It would be fascinating to find out who is really funding the environmentalists.

From: Stephen Ray Hale <>
Subject: RE: Jerusalem News-356

Dear Yair,

Do you get crazy when folk keep saying "well, if you look at it this
a way...?" can look at it this a way:

As if we need more proof that Jews in the Land requires more proof,
but I believe the God who is author of the law of two or three witnesses
that establishes a matter, He is redundant to establish that He will bring
the Jews into the land in spite of what soul condition or righteousness or
the lack thereof (and in the context I got this from the scriptures, it is
absolutely based on the lack thereof). The laws were made for a sign for
the Jews to be allowed to stay ALIVE in the land (that they broke and were
spit out, just like Moses testified) and that any providential repayment of
a breaking of the laws in the land such as that of the Sabbath is proof that
God is willing for the Jews to be there now...with the re-establishment of
chastening for law breaking. This might be a back handed proof of the
legitimacy of the Jews to be there in the buildup of the infrastructure of
His return in the last days, for the judgement of Israel and the punishment
of the nations who arrogate a willingness to be instruments of chastening
(of which God complains that the nations exceeded in wrath what He was
willing to apply to an errant people).

That God is willing to re-establish providential answers to Jewish
or any lawbreaking in the land...ought be comforting (and a hint to tidy up
all of your lives - and mine too if I was even bold to visit there). God
only tends to chasten His children, and there is a promise that there will
be a beginning in the people of God first before he branches out to the
world, and if you folk can hardly stand what would it be for those who are
not children.

Anyway, I was looking for a good point to your concern about the
Sabbath thing.

The neo-Nazi group was discovered following the arrest on drug charges

police suspicions, and neo-Nazi material was later discovered in his

In the course of the investigation of the arrested neo-Nazi and his

of the group were revealed. Police detective Chaim Fadlon told the
Maariv newspaper that the suspects are believed to have met each other
in anti-Semitic internet chat rooms. Their contacts soon took the
form of meetings and ceremonies with swastika banners and other Nazi

"We cannot disclose details of the inquiry, but it's chilling," Fadlon
said. "It appears these are people living in this country who are
talking among themselves about extermination of the Jews."

Under the 'Law of Return,' anyone with a Jewish grandparent - even it
is only his father's father - can immigrate to Israel and receive
citizenship and benefits. (Only those born to a Jewish mother or who
have properly converted to Judaism are considered Jewish.) Immigrant
groups representing Jews from the former Soviet Union have long called
for reform in the law because of immigrants who move to Israel not
because they are Jewish but for financial reasons. Often, they bring
their enmity for Jews and Israel along with them.

Interior Minister Ofir Pines-Paz (Labor) has asked Attorney General
Menachem Mazuz to examine the legal procedure under which a new
immigrant’s status can be revoked.

In "Braveheart" the Irish contingent in the English forces is depicted as deserting

Concerning "Braveheart" someone wrote in that the practice of the Feudal Lord

For the record, the practice appears to have been known in some parts of the Byzantine Empire.
It may have been also practiced (though some doubt it) in areas of the Holy Roman Empire

Mozart wrote an opera based upon it. It is not certain however whether or not Mozart was recording a genuine tradition
or just something that had become part of local folklore due to popular interest in anything of a violent and sexual nature.

Israel ties Ireland 2:2
Israel starts off on wrong foot in Dublin but makes amazing turnaround, keeps up tenacious defense in second half
By Oded Shalev
Dublin, Ireland Israel tied Ireland 2:2 in a nail-biting game at Dublin’s Landsdowne Road Stadium.
The two soccer teams squared off to see who would make it to the top of World Cup Qualifying Group and a chance to win the 2006 World Cup. In the beginning, Israel took a beating from Ireland.
Ireland opened aggressively. Ian Harte stunned goalie Dudu Awat in the 6th minute with a perfect free kick from outside the box, and striker Robbie Keane took advantage of a hole in the Israeli defense to make it 2:0 after only 11 minutes of play.
Israeli comeback
But 40 minutes into the game, Israel came back as Avi Yechiel avoided John O’Shea from Manchester United
and headed in a Yossi Benayoun cross to make it 2:1.
A few minutes later, O’Shea pushed Yossi Benayoun in the penalty box and the Greek referee awarded the Israeli squad a penalty kick. Avi Nimni's first attempt was disqualified, but kick number two delivered the goods, and the score was even before half time.
In the second half of the game, Israel put up a terrific defense, rebuffing repeated Irish attempts to score. Israeli fans held their collective breath when at the 97th minute, Ian Harte took another free shot at Israel's goal, but the kick was high.

Biographies of great achievers, in science as well as other disciplines, suggest that those of genius caliber possess, in addition to their intellectual gift or gifts, an extraordinary abundance of mental energy. They can focus their attention on some task for long periods without tiring or becoming distracted from the problem at hand. It is plausible to suppose that intellectual achievement is a function of the product, rather than the sum, of mental talent and mental energy.

Dear Eric,

The environmentalist movement CONTAINS a pagan religious faction that I
believe is Satanic in origin. The movement has this insidious side that
puts human life on the same level as animal life and this is why they try to
restrict human activity that fulfills the Creator's command to subdue and
manage well the earth as stewards. They also are the ones behind the myth
that the earth is overpopulated. To them the human population must be
rolled back to allow the tigers and anacondas equal living space.

Having said that, there is also a side of the environmentalist movement that
seeks to responsibly manage the earth and not just squander resources and
leave a mess behind. It is wrong to abort babies to make room for
tigers; it is also wrong to run roughshod over wildlife that is needed to
make a healthy environment. Let's obey the Creator's command to fill the
earth with human dwellings, but let's not just let those dwellings become a
madhouse of riotous living and pollution.

The leftists may have their pipe dream, but the "rightists" also can be
guilty of opiate illusions, for example that we will always find more
abundant oil to keep fuelling our high energy consumption. The cheap oil
will run out, and not so far in the future. It already has diminished
noticeably and this is no paid propaganda. When was the last time you heard
of a new gusher opened up? The noted geologist M. King Hubbert predicted
accurately that U.S. oil production would peak around 1970, and the opening
of the Prudoe Bay oil field slowed the decline but didn't stop it. It is
estimated that the available oil in the Alaska wildlife refuge is something
like half of that at Prudoe Bay. It is simply wishful thinking that
offshore drilling will give another bonanza. No one really knows until the
drilling hits the oil pocket.

Drilling like mad and building nuclear fission plants (which also run on a
limited fuel supply) might help postpone the energy crisis, but it cannot
stop it without conservation and "alternative" energy. The U.S. has less
than 6% of the world's proven petroleum reserves. That is the cold, hard
reality, not a pipe dream. It is not likely that frenetic drilling is going
to change that to even 12% of the world's supply. To become energy
independent, neither petroleum nor nuclear fission looks like the way to go
for the long term.

I am not paid by anyone and am not afraid to take politically incorrect
views. I have concluded that nuclear fission is a very special energy
source, whose best application are these nuclear ships and submarines. I
think that it is irresponsible squandering to use it for public power
generation, if we have an option.

I believe that we need to look seriously at cutting back our energy
consumption. Having a madhouse of commuter traffic going all directions
every morning and evening, generating smog and fraying nerves, is not to be
welcomed just so I can say I am not a wacko environmentalist. Public
transportation and well thought out planning are what the big bucks of
corruption choked to death so that they could sell more cars. There is
corrupt money going both ways.

Solar energy is viable and economical in many parts of the world. I have
developed a very cheap solar collector that could cut "conventional" energy
consumption by a large amount. I was told, "Not interested", by the U.S.
Dept. of Energy, without even having a chance to explain my idea. I just
took a shower with it, so it is definitely not a pipe dream. South America
has developed less than 10% of its hydroelectric potential. I hear that
Africa has even more. High energy industries should be located in those
places. Hybrid vehicles are a good idea and need not be so expensive.
Nuclear fusion energy should be pursued and not squelched. The insidious
side of things has done this to leave us in this difficulty which pits
"environmentalists" against "right-wingers".

The last drug I took was an aspirin a couple weeks ago, so please don't
think that I am smoking a pipe of opium when I say that I would rather that
they leave the oil in the ground if possible for the time being. Petroleum
is such a nifty product that produces these plastics among other things. I
would hate to see it squandered on gas guzzlers without even an effort to
take another approach. If we just say, "Bring on the drills, and hang
conservation," that is what will happen.

Thomas, ...The problem with the modern environmentalist movement is that it is driven by political ideology rather than sound science and rational economics. As a result, many of its goals are actually detrimental to the environment. This is because the environmentalists advocate government mandates and subsides to advance their agenda. These result in a misallocation of resources that not only shifts the cost of production from one industry to another but also results in a net increase in the consumption of natural resources. For example:

Ethanol fuel. It takes 131,000 BTU of energy to produce one gallon of ethanol, which contains only 77,000 BTU. Running cars on ethanol uses far more energy than running them on gasoline. However, this is not obvious, so ethanol is a "feel good" environmental solution and the government subsides make the corn farmers happy.

Recycling paper. This is utterly ridiculous. Paper is naturally recycled by "nature." You put it in the ground and, just like leaves and dead trees, it rots and becomes soil. The soil is food for new trees. It costs more to produce paper from recycled paper than it does to produce paper from tree farms, and the result is an inferior product. That is why recycling has to be subsidized and people have to be forced to separate their garbage. And if it costs more, then more energy is used.

Oil. There is no shortage of oil. Canada and Venezuela alone have enough oil in tar sands and clay to supply the entire world for more than 100 years. In addition, gasoline can be produced from natural gas such as methane, and there is enough recoverable natural gas to satisfy all mankind's needs (for both energy and plastics) for thousands of years. If gasoline production peaked in the 1970's, that is because of environmentalist restrictions against new drilling and refining, not because of any lack of reserves.

As far as nuclear power is concerned, the idea that nuclear fuel is so limited that nuclear power should be rationed and limited to nuclear submarines is ludicrous.

I am also amused by your advocacy of hydroelectric power. Here in the Pacific Northwest the environmentalists want to dismantle our hydroelectric dams because they believe they harm the salmon.

Some people may like public transit but most Americans prefer to own their own cars and we resent being taxed to support the idiosyncrasies of the transit-lovers. If we really wanted transit, we would be willing to pay fares high enough that subsides were not required. (And don't mentioned public roads-our gasoline taxes pay for those-and for mass transit, and bike trails, etc.)

Given the advances in technology and the current cost of gasoline, hybrid cars may indeed make sense now, but if they do, they will take off without government subsidies or mandates. If they can't survive without government intervention, then forcing them on the public will result in a hidden misallocation of resources that will result in a net increase in the consumption of energy and other natural resources.

In short, as long as industry is not allowed to evade the costs of production (for example, by dumping pollutants into rivers that then have to be cleaned up by downstream users), private enterprise, on the basis of supply and demand and the cost of production, will decide when it makes sense to recycle and which source of energy uses the least resources. Private enterprise will do this because abundant resources are cheap, scarce resources are expensive, and any rational businessman wants to minimize his costs. It's not in the interest of industry to waste resources. It's only when government interferes, with subsidies and irrational regulations, that resources are wasted.

5. David Ben-Ariel: Facts about Gaza and the Bible
From: David Ben-Ariel <>
Subject: A Bitter Family Quarrel

FYI from
A Bitter Family Quarrel

Facts re Gaza. €œThe GAZA STRIP, also known as GAZA, extends NE from the
Sinai Peninsula for 40 km (25 mi), with the Mediterranean Sea to the W.
and Israel to the E. The Palestinian Authority [under Yasir Arafat] is
responsible for civil government, but Israel retains control over
security. Nearly all of the inhabitants are Palestinian Arabs, more than
35% of whom live in refugee camps. Population (2001 est.): 1,178,119.
Area: 140 square miles € (The World Almanac, 2002 ed., €œGaza €). And,
reportedly, between 70 and 80 percent of the Palestinians in Gaza fully
support militant Islam, including the use of suicide bombings, to gain
their political ends.

After Joshua had conquered much of the Promised Land (in about 1300 B.C.),
God said to him, "You are old, advanced in years, and there remains very
much land yet to be possessed. This is the land that yet remains [to be
possessed by Israel]; all the territory of the Philistines [including] the
five lords of the Philistinesthe GAZAites, the ASHDODites, the
ASHKELONites, the GITTites, and the EKRONites…[and all the land northward]
that belongs to the SIDONians…the land of the GEBALites and all LEBANON…as
far as the entrance to HAMATH [in Syria] " (Joshua 13:1-5). God then told
Joshua that all of that land was to be given €œto Israel as an inheritance,
as I have commanded you. Now…divide this land as an inheritance to the
nine tribes and half the tribe of Manasseh [Gad, Ruben and half of
Manasseh inherited lands East of the Jordan River] € (vv. 6-7).

This makes it very clear that God commanded Joshua to tell the Israelites
that He had given them the lands then inhabited by the Philistines and the
Lebanonese peoples. Again, we must ask, "Did God give the land of Canaan
(i.e. Palestine) to the Arabs, or to the people of Israel? Here is
Joshua s answer: "I call heaven and earth as witnesses today…that you may
love the LORD your God…obey His voice…cling to Him, for He is your life
and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the
LORD swore to your fathers, to ABRAHAM, ISAAC, and JACOB, to give THEM"
(Deut. 30:19-20). Clearly, this verse does not say that God gave "the
land" (meaning "land of Canaan" Gen. 12 & 15) to Ishmael s or Esau s

Knesset Member Ayoub Kara (Likud) told Channel 1 TV this week that he knows the high-ranking, refusing officer of his Druze community, but refused to disclose his name.
Kara this week also appealed to Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz to exclude Druze soldiers from taking part in the disengagement. He explained that while the Druze community signed a pact with the nation to protect and serve, this does not include “evicting brothers from their homes.”

7. Bill Rasmussen: "We should wear orange on July 19th"

From: William Rasmussen <>

Shabbat Shalom Yair:... Since the inheritance of Menashe is being considered as part of the disengagement plan, Brit Am members should be contacting the White House as well as key Knesset members to voice their opposition. We should wear orange on July 19th when there will be a worldwide rally against the plan. Evangelical Christian members of Brit Am should be getting their churches and leaders to voice their opposition to partitioning Eretz Yisrael. By all means, we need to get President George Bush to back away from this abominable plan and to get him to call off Condoleeza Rice from advancing plans for Israel to return to the 1949 borders. Now is the time to sound the shofar and warn the people.
Shalom, Bill Rasmussen

2. Britain in Danger of Flooding? Will the British Need to be Evacuated?
The Scotsman
Tue 28 Jun 2005
Brief Extracts:

THE UK's major coastal cities could be submerged as a result of massive sea-level rises over the next two centuries, transforming the British mainland into a string of islands, according to latest research.

Experts say the flash floods and sweltering heat that have swept across Britain during the past few weeks could be a harbinger of major problems in the future.

The study suggests that the planet's rapidly changing weather patterns will have a devastating effect on the UK. According to the most extreme model, England and Wales would be most affected, with the centre of London and many cities and coastal towns under water.

Data for the predicted course of events was gathered by a team who spent two months matching rising sea- level scenarios against topography data from a Space Shuttle mission, to produce the first detailed maps showing the possible impact of global warming on the shape of the British landscape.

Worryingly, the experts concluded that there was at least a one-in-20 chance that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet would melt in just 200 years.

The worst scenario is the 84-metre rise. The team pointed out that this would only happen if the world did nothing about carbon gas emissions, leading to a runaway greenhouse effect. If we ever reached this state, little beyond the hills and mountains making up Wales, Scotland, the south-west and spine of England, will remain above the waves.

3. Russian Subbotniks Still Around?
Background: From time to time in Russia there were movements among Christians to adopt Jewish customs
(rather like the "Messianics" of today) though the official Church authorities considered this heresy.
They were known as 'Subbotniks' meaning Sabbath Keepers.
A portion of these 'Subbotniks' declared a belief in Judaism and some of them converted.
In some cases whole villages (especially in Southern Russia) were involved and they claimed to be descended from the Khazars
and/or from the Lost Ten Tribes
see our article on the Khazars
followed by the articles by Ephraim Hirsch and Steven Collins from the same URL
Most of the 'Subbotniks' converted to Judaism or remained Christians and made their way to North America
where they often joined Sabbath-keeping congregations.
The article (from the Jeruslaem Post, URL below) indicates that some are still in Russia but is somewhat confused.
It seems that not only do the 'Subbotniks' want to be treated as Jews themselves
but they want all the loopholes in the Right of Return Law to be applied to them,
i.e. if someone had a great-grandfather who was a
'Subbotnik' then they and all their entire family should
be allowed to come to Israel??? This is not so simple since, among other considerations, every new
immigrant from Russia receives grants and benefits worth tens of thousands of dollars
Panel: Bring in 10000 'Subbotniks'

4. New Poll: US Citizens More Pro-Israeli Than Israelis?
Excerpts Only
For complete article go to:

New York - A major new national poll has found that 63% of Americans
oppose Israel's Gaza Withdrawal Plan; 80% oppose US aid to Palestinians; 61%
oppose dealing with even elected or appointed Hamas members; while 63%
support Jerusalem remaining under Israeli sovereignty; and 58% support
economic sanctions against Saudi Arabia.

By a margin of 2 to 1, Americans believe the Gaza Plan rewards
terrorism, by a margin of 3 to 1, Americans believe a Palestinian State's
goal would be the destruction of Israel; by a margin of 2 ½ to 1, believe a
Palestinian State would be a terrorist state; and by a margin of 10 to 1, do
not believe Saudi Arabia is a reliable ally in the US war against radical
Islamic terrorism.

The poll was commissioned by the Zionist Organization of America
(ZOA), the oldest pro-Israel group in the US. It was carried out by
McLaughlin & Associates, a major national polling company, on June 26-27,
2005. The poll questioned a scientific sample of 1,000 Americans from
throughout the US.

The poll findings:

By 63% to 16%, Americans oppose "Israel's unilateral withdrawal from
a section of Gaza and Northern Samaria" and "forcing 10,000 Israeli Jews
from their homes and businesses."

By 50% to 28%, Americans believe that "this Gaza Plan sends a message
that Arab terrorism is being rewarded."

By 63% to 5%, Americans say that "Jerusalem should remain under
Israeli sovereignty - not Palestinian sovereignty."

By 80% to 12%, Americans oppose "the continuation of $350 million in
US aid to Palestinian Arabs."

By 58% to 21%, Americans believe "the goal of a Palestinian Arab
State would be to destroy Israel - not to live in peace with it".

By 53% to 21%, Americans believe "a Palestinian State would be a
terrorist state - not a peaceful democracy."

By 61% to 28%, Americans believe that "if Hamas members are elected
or appointed to official positions in the Palestinian Arab government, US
officials should not meet or negotiate with them."

By 78% to 8%, Americans say that "Saudi Arabia is not a reliable or
trustworthy ally in the war against radical Islamic terrorism."

By 58% to 28%, Americans support "economic sanctions against Saudi
Arabia until they stop supporting and funding terrorists and radical Islamic
education that teaches hatred against the US and Israel."

ZOA President Morton A. Klein said: "This national poll exposes the
myth that Americans support the Gaza/Northern Samaria Withdrawal/Expulsion
Plan. Americans realize that it's a bad deal for Israel to make these major
concessions without getting anything in return. They also understand that
this rewards the Hamas and Fatah suicide bombing terrorists whose
counterparts are killing Americans every day in Iraq. This Plan harms the
US war against radical Islamic terrorism by sending a message that terrorism
pays and pays well.

"We hope that President Bush and Condoleezza Rice will soon see the
danger to America in this Plan. Palestinian chief Abbas' recent invitation
to terror chiefs to move from Syria to Gaza after Israel leaves should alone
end all discussion of the wisdom of this evacuation plan by Israel. When
Israel leaves Gaza, the Arab terrorists will surely take over.
"And while Europe is planning to negotiate with the terror group
Hamas and the US is considering what to do if Hamas gains in power in the
Palestinian Authority, it is refreshing to see that US citizens clearly
understand that America should never negotiate with as venal a terror group
as Hamas.

"It is also refreshing to see virtually unanimous support among
Americans for Israel to maintain sovereignty over Jerusalem. Jerusalem has
never been the capitol of any country except Israel. When Jordan controlled
it, no Arab leader visited Jerusalem - yet Arabs would not let any Jew visit
Judaism's holy city. Jerusalem is mentioned in the Jewish holy books 700
times - in the Islamic Koran - not once. Americans understand all this - it
is time President Bush moves the US Embassy to Israel's capital, Jerusalem,
as US law requires. Bush's refusal to move the Embassy sends a clear
message that Islamic terrorism impacts US policy on Jerusalem and stops the
President from fulfilling US law.

"This poll also makes clear that Americans will never forget that 15
of the 19 Islamic terrorists who blew up the World Trade Center and the
Pentagon, murdering 3000 Americans, were from Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia
has not yet arrested anyone in connection with 9-11. Americans are becoming
more aware that Saudi Arabia is the leading source of terrorism and
extremist Whabbi hate education in mosques around the world. In fact, a
series of reports from counter-terrorism think tanks found that 55% of
Iraq's anti-American suicide bombers were Saudis. That's why Americans are
supporting sanctions against Saudi Arabia until they change.

6. DNA Jewish Roots?
Subject: Re: Jerusalem News-356

Shalom Yair

My wife and I have read all of your books that we are aware of and appreciate them immensely.

In one of your books you mentioned the "Captive Jews" meaning those that have Jewish ancestry but don't know it. We are leaders of a congregation here in Minneapolis, Minnesota that has forsaken all semblances of "Christianity" and have been keeping the Sabbath, and Biblical holidays and Feasts of the Bible.

Three weeks ago I received my DNA reports back from Family Tree DNA in Houston and they confirmed without a doubt that my mothers side was almost entirely Ashkenazi and on my dads side about half of those reporidng with the same DNA as mine were Ashkenazi and 3 reports came back with Ashkenazi-Levite as ethnic background.

You were again absolutely right in saying that many of the leaders teaching Hebrew roots were probably "Captive Jews".

Thank you and keep up the good work.

Duane & Millie

Comment: Most People of West European origin who check their DNA find they
have similar results to Ashkenazi and/or Sephardi Jews. This is because the results
are based on the haplotype and not the haplogroup. It still indicates a high probabilty
of familial relationship.
We are preparing an article on the subject alongside other projects and day to day
Brit-Am obligations, studies, and research needs.
These are matters of importance and potential good but no-one else appears to be doing it
at least not in the same way.
All this requires funding.

7. Proverbs 2:12-22

The learning of the Biblical Wisdom will deliever you from evil liers who try to tell you that "science"
or "lovey-dovey" humanitarin considerations render the Bible obsolete.
Do not think you are immune. We are all human. Only by studying the Bible and praying can
we overcome the forcres of adversity that daily stalk us or those close to us.

Those who deny the Bible are evil and seeking ways to do bad. These are not matters that can be left to individual conscience since the results of going in the wrong path hurt everybody.

Free-thinkers, anti-semites, libertarians, etc advocate attitudes and life-styles that can kill you and those you care for. They are like seductive women who may seem to promise you gratification but even if they deliver you liable to find yourself over an abyss from which there is no return. God wants you to live and HE tells you how to in the Bible.
Tamar was desired by Amnon her half-brother. Amnon heeded the advice of Jonadab and pretended to be sick requesting that Tamar come to his house to prepare him food. Amnon then raped Tamar, was immediately disgusted with her, and threw her out in shame (2-Samuel 13). Absalom the brother of Tamar when he had the opportunity put Amnon to death. Before being raped Tamar pleaded with Amnon saying that if he do such a thing apart from the unbearable shame of Tamar he too would become "AS ONE OF THE FOOLS IN ISRAEL" (2-Samuel 13:13). Deniers of the Bible want to give us the opposite of what they claim and turn us into fools and ingrates. The same applies to those who deny the brotherhood between Judah and Joseph. These people for all their piety or pseudo-intellectualism, flattering approach and superficially well-meaning want to deny us what is ours and make fools of us.

We all want to be good but many of us think that the goal is beyond us. This is not so. You are like somebody in a dark tunnel holding onto a rope that can lead you out into the light and safety. The Bible is the rope. Hold on to it. Learn it even if you do not live it. It will lead you back.

The good shall achieve permanence while the bad will not. We can all belong to the good. It is not an exclusive club that we were born outside of. The door is open. The cover of the Bible is the door to life.

Mr. Davidiy,
Just thought this was appropriate when talking about who Gog is and what alliance he will pull togather. These couple of lines come from the English versian of Debka file. Again it seems very clear that China's and Russia's response to Israel and Judah is a justification to an infringement on their sphere of influence. An attack on Iran and their nuclear capabilities may be their justification, but they seem to clearly be heading in a confrontation with greater Israel.
