Fair weather Friends?

Mike Packer

I haven't posted anything for a while because whatever I wanted to say was being covered by so many other people a whole lot better at it than me so I left it up to them.

Saying that, there is something that's riling me at the moment and that's the attempts by the Arabs to delegitimize and erase any trace of the religion of my people! The first monotheistic religion that has been around for five thousand years and gave birth to two others.

.Those two others are Christianity and Islam. Christianity evolved from the teachings of a Jew from Galilee into the faith that bears His name today. The second religion was, basically, stolen from us 3400 years after we were firmly established in our faith. My accusation of theft is based on the fact that the founder of this religion (he who must not be named) in his travels around the Middle East in his younger days was exposed to both of the monotheistic religions in the region at the time. Being on the border of insanity as he was he decided to form his own religion but came to the conclusion that to call himself G-d would bring ridicule upon himself he decided to call himself a prophet. He chose the Jewish faith as the basis for his dogma and usurped all out prophets and teachers and rewrote the bible to his own liking.

Over the eons Christianity has evolved into the religion of "Peace", "Love your neighbour as yourself", "blessed are the meek", etc. whereas Islam has still a long way to go to educate its followers in what a tolerant religion and a "religion of Peace" actually is. It has to learn that in this day and age that marauding gangs of religious fanatics that try and coerce people into converting to their religion is not accepted anymore. The dark ages have long gone the way of the Dodo and they should try and get on to the same page as the rest of us.

In Muslim countries other religions are barely tolerated if not illegal. Saudi Arabia for all its airs and graces trying to hobnob with Old World royalty or cultured scions of high finance should be made to remember that 80 years ago they were dirt poor goat farmers living in tents and no amount of money will take the smell out of their clothes. But, lo, along comes oil and the western world is brown nosing for all it's worth.

Has all this money bought any tolerance? No, on the contrary, it has allowed the goat herders to buy modern weapons and pursue their intentions with gusto and the EU, Russia and the US are applauding them from the wings! One would have thought that with western money a touch of culture would transfuse into the "Religion of Peace". But, no, as any Christian who dares to bring a bible into Saudi Arabia will soon find out or any Bhuddist in Afghanistan, or Hindu in Pakistan, or Jew in the land of their forefathers.

Smoothstone blog wrote the following:

The Obama administration criticized Israel Wednesday for designating two Jewish holy sites supposedly on Palestinian territory as Israel national heritage sites but the dumb bastards in the Obama administration seem to forget that Rachel’s Tomb and the Tomb of the Patriarchs are indigenous to the Jewish people and were there thousands of years before the fabricated “Palestinians” fraudulently claimed the territory to be theirs. “Hebron” is Jewish. It’s a Biblical town. It is Israel’s most ancient city, resting place of Abraham, Issac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca and Leah, site of the anointment of King David and the tombs of Jesse, his father, and Ruth, and until 1929, when Arabs slaughtered 67 innocent Jews while praying in their synagogue, had a significant Jewish population. Those 67 Jews were slaughtered for no other reason other than that they were Jews and mind you, that was 38 years before the “occupation”. For Muslims and their apologists in the White House, history starts anew each day especially when it favors the fabricated “poorpalestinianpeepull”. Sad, isn’t it, that the Arabs, who control more land than any other ethnic group on the planet besides the Russians, are simply unwilling to share even the tiniest sliver of the Middle East with the Jews. Equally sad, is the United States telling Israel, a sovereign and legitimate nation, what it can or cannot do within its own borders.

The names mentioned above Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Leah, Jesse, Ruth, are all Jewish patriarchs and matriarchs who died thousands of years before the birth of He Who Must Not Be Named and have no connection with Islam whatsoever except for the fact that they were stolen from our bible. Another religious crime is the fact that the Arabs posing as a non-existant people called "palestinians" have been trying to erase all evidence of Jewish presence on the Temple Mount where the first and second Jewish temples were built and destroyed thousands of years before the birth of Islam and the Arabs.

The Arab claim to Jerusalem is false. It was never an Arab city nor the capital of an Arab state nor is it really a true holy city to Islam. The Jewish religion considers Jerusalem the central point of its faith, it is towards Jerusalem we pray five times a day. At all Jewish weddings the words "if I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its cunning" and at this time of year at the end of our Passover meal we recite the words "next year in Jerusalem the rebuilt". Jerusalem is the Capital of the State of Israel and the recent, ugly, insulting pressure being applied on us to relinquish our beloved city into the hands of Arabs who are intent on finishing the Third Reich's work is intolerable.

To add insult to injury todays newsletter from Arutz Sheva (Israel National News) has the following:

A senior PA official claims that the Obama administration backs pro-PA rallies in Jerusalem. The claim was reported by investigative journalist Aaron Klein of WorldNetDaily. According to the official, United States diplomats have encouraged Arabs to protest in parts of Israel's capital in order to pressure Israel to evacuate neighborhoods. The US administration does not recognize Israel's claim to key parts of the capital, including much of eastern and northern Jerusalem as well as the Old City and City of David.

So, I ask you, is this the act of a friend? What right does the current US Administration have in trying to alter the status of our Capital city?

I would like to remind you, dear reader, that between the years 1948-1967 the eastern part of Jerusalem was occupied, illegally by the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan during a war of aggression against the fledgling State of Israel. During that occupation the most Holy sites for two of the three monotheistic religions were restricted areas in violation of the UN Mandate for Palestine. In 1967 during the Six Day War Israel reclaimed the city and opened the religious sites for all religions to worship freely including Islam.

If only that freedom was reciprocal. The Jewish worshippers at the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron under the authority of the PA is constantly being harassed and after the Israeli Government declared the Tomb a Jewish Heritage site Moslems started rioting as they did when the rebuilt Hurva Synagogue in the Old City of Jerusalem (destroyed by the Jordanians during their occupation) or as they do every Friday when Jews attempt to pray on the Temple Mount which the Muslims deem verboten to Jews.

So why is it that our "friends" in Europe and the United States find it necessary to delegitimize our desire to practice our faith in our homeland? Is it because deep down inside they are jealous that after five thousand years our faith is still going strong? Do they find that the ghetto Jew shouldn't be protecting himself like he didn't in WWII?

Well, my friends, I have one thing to say; we are here and here we'll stay. We have endured worse hardships than what you are throwing at us now and have survived.
