Benjamin Netanyahu failed the Temple Mount

Benjamin Netanyahu on the Temple Mount

CFR Benjamin Netanyahu before he became prime minister:

"The right of the Jewish people to its holy place - the Temple Mount - cannot be questioned...I believe it is necessary to arrange for Jewish prayer on the site, especially given that we permit freedom of worship to all the religions in Jerusalem...". And his office charged Palestinian officials with "disparaging Jewish holy sites and threatening potential worshippers" (in flagrant violation of Israel's 1967 Law for the Protection of the Holy Places and the Oslo Accords). His deputy director of communications, Michael Freund, responded to the PA mufti's declaration of war (that Jews "...must absolutely forget about having any rights over the Temple Mount...the Western Wall is just a fence belonging to a Muslim holy site") by saying "these statements are repugnant and they betray a contempt for Judaism's most sacred sites and beliefs. They are an affront to history and insulting to Jews everywhere."

After CFR Benjamin Netanyahu became prime minister he failed to put his promises into practice and permitted the Nazi-Muslims to continue to trample the principles he so eloquently spoke about. Never forget!

The woeful neglect of bribed Israeli politicians and bankrupt Jewish religious leaders stinks to High Heaven and demands an accounting. Watch for the German-EU offer to pick up the tab with strings attached.

Stay the Course

Re: Fox 25 Special Report on Philadelphia Church of God

If your book [Beyond Babylon] was inspired by Our Heavenly Father, no one should condemn it. Of course that could be the reason, because most people don't want to accept the truth. Just stay the course, if it's right it will finally be exposed.

Good luck,

I'm an e-vangelist

I received this private message at the forum:

I was curious. I have read some of your entries. Do you have any formal training in theology or training from a seminary or yeshiva?

Thankfully not (for the most part), but hopefully folks will recognize that I've spent plenty of prayerful time in the Word, even as the religious authorities noted Peter and John - "uneducated and untrained men" (no formal training) - had spent time with Yeshua.

Acts 4
13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.

are you self taught? do you have a mentor?

Like the noble Bereans, I search the Scriptures to see what is so and mainly did so with Herbert W. Armstrong's biblical teachings.

are you an established minister or ordained elder in any denomination? do you operate a church or assembly in the Toledo,OH area?

No and God knows I have no desire to be one. I do what I feel I've been called to do: serve as an e-vangelist throughout the internet world.

Sabbath peace/Shabbat Shalom!

Why do I need this birthright?

"'Behold, I am going to die; so why do I need this birthright?'"
(Genesis 25:32)

Rosh Chodesh Kislev, 5769/November 28, 2008

Last week's Torah reading of Chayei Sara, (Genesis 32:1-25:18), describes at great length the negotiations leading up to the purchase of the Machpelah cave by Avraham Avinu - our forefather Abraham. Midrash tells us that Avraham first entered the cave many years earlier, when chasing after a runaway calf which he intended to serve to the three wayfarers who visited him at his tent, (Genesis 18:2). Once inside he saw Adam and Chava - Adam and Eve - lying in repose. From that very moment he felt that he just had to have possession of that cave. Why? Avraham was himself, as it were, the continuation of Adam some twenty generations later, and the way of G-d that Avraham had been living and teaching was, in fact, the tikun - the rectification of Adam - the first man (and the everyman). The errors that Adam made, as recorded in the opening chapters of Genesis, caused his own spiritual stature, (and that of his descendants), to be diminished. By rekindling the love between G-d and man, Avraham was beginning a process through which man can return to the Adam that G-d first created; that is, the immortal Adam, the Adam who knows that life doesn't end with death, but that when our soul departs from this world its destiny is in the world to come.

Clearly, then, Avraham would make every effort to acquire the cave, but why did he negotiate the transaction so publicly? Avraham knew that his ownership of the cave would be contested throughout the ages. He wanted his descendants to never waver in their claim, (see Rashi's commentary on Genesis 1:1), not simply because it is a foothold in the land of Israel, and not only because it is a bridge to the world to come, but because of both these reasons it comes to complete the message of Avraham's teaching to the world: There is a hereafter, and how a person conducts himself in this world is determined by his belief in the reality of the next world. If life ends here, why should we transcend our earthly limitations by emulating G-d's qualities through our deeds?

This upcoming Shabbat we read the Torah portion of Toldot, and in it we are made privy to the great struggle that was waged between the two grandsons of Avraham: Yaakov - Jacob - and Esau. It would appear that both boys were natural leaders and that both boys followed their own distinct paths leading to their own truths. Yitzchak - Isaac, we are told, valued the potential that he saw in Esau, and hoped that he would prove worthy of the birthright that ostensibly was his, having emerged first from his mother's womb. Rivka - Rebecca, who recognized the character flaws inherent in Esau, herself having grown up in a household containing some less than savory characters, sought to encourage and direct her son Yaakov, whose way was the way of Torah, embodying the qualities of truth and pleasantness.

But it was the two brothers themselves who, each having examined the way of their grandfather Avraham, drew the conclusions that would direct them in their own paths:

"Now Jacob cooked a pottage, and Esau came from the field, and he was faint. And Esau said to Jacob, "Pour into [me] some of this red, red [pottage], for I am faint"; he was therefore named Edom. And Jacob said, "Sell me as of this day your birthright." Esau replied, "Behold, I am going to die; so why do I need this birthright?" And Jacob said, "Swear to me as of this day"; so he swore to him, and he sold his birthright to Jacob. And Jacob gave Esau bread and a pottage of lentils, and he ate and drank and arose and left, and Esau despised the birthright." (Genesis 25:29-34)

Where is the "giveaway" that the birthright truly belongs to Yaakov and not to Esau? Where do we see that Esau has irreversibly strayed from the teachings of his grandfather Avraham?

"Behold, I am going to die; so why do I need this birthright?" (ibid) If life ends here, why should we transcend our earthly limitations by emulating G-d's qualities through our deeds? If life ends here, why shouldn't self-aggrandizement be our goal? If life ends here, why should we not employ all means of violence and deception to get our hands on all we wish to possess? If life ends here, what use is a birthright whose value is not as a trophy to be hung on the wall, but a precious inheritance, a way of love and truth, to be handed down to our children and to our children's children?

Tune in to this week's Temple Talk, as Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven discuss Avraham Avinu's purchase of the Machpelah, and his message to his children and to the world, in doing so. And what exactly do Avraham's grandchildren, Yaakov and Esau make of Avraham's acquisition of the gateway from this world to the next?

We hope to be able to offer previous teachings also in MP3 format in the near future.

Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov,, the forefathers of the Jewish nation, were real people of flesh and blood. Yet they also embody the very attributes by which G-d administers His world. Avraham embodies the attribute of chesed - loving kindness. Yet from his loins came forth Yitzchak, whose persona embodies the attribute of din - harshness. This reflects the cosmic conundrum: If, as we are taught, G-d created His world with chesed, why then, does harshness exists? Why are there people in pain and in need? By treating our fellow man with chesed, we are, in effect, creating G-d’s world anew. Click here to view Rabbi Richman's short teaching on parashat Toldot (Genesis 25:19-28:9).

Fox 25 Special Report on Philadelphia Church of God

Reporter Nick Winkler, of Fox 25 in Oklahoma City, presented a special report on the Philadelphia Church of God that aired Nov. 24 and Nov. 25.

I found the special report on the PCG, all things considered, unusually fair and balanced and commend Nick Winkler and Fox News for it, since the Sabbath-keeping Church of God members have always been highly skeptical of such reporters and cynical about such programs.

You can watch the Fox News' videos for yourself and see what you think:

Philadelphia Church of God: Part One

Philadelphia Church of God: Part Two

I'm pleased Fox News made mention of my book and name and showed them on my Philadelphia Church of God blog, having interviewed me as a former PCG member who was disfellowshipped for writing Beyond Babylon and who strongly disagrees with how Pastor General Gerald Flurry is squandering tithe money in Edmond, Oklahoma instead of going all out to share the plain truth of the Bible, our warning message, with the world in a powerful way that such money makes possible.

Fox 25, Oklahoma City, Special Report:
Philadelphia Church of God: Part One

David Ben-Ariel: I was basically put out..

Reporter Nick Winkler: Former PCG member David Ben-Ariel says he was kicked out of the Church for writing a book [Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall] without the Church's approval and says all that money [15 million Art Center on their Edmond, Oklahoma site] could be better spent spreading God's Word differently...

David Ben-Ariel: Hopefully, they'll stop spending their money in Edmond, Oklahoma and use it to become a household word with our teachings and let that become known.


Philadelphia Church of God: Part Two

Nick Winkler: Before Jesus Christ returns...

David Ben-Ariel: Violence, WWIII...yes, there will be lots of violence.

Nick Winkler: Former PCG member David Ben-Ariel says he was kicked out of the Church but still defends its tithing practices...

David Ben-Ariel: Again, it's voluntary but it's understood if you're a Church of God member you will tithe and you'll want to.


PCG: Carrying on "Business as Usual"
If you truly saw what is coming on this Earth, and had a vision of tomorrow, you would know that the Gathering Storm darkens as you sip champagne and boast that you're rich and in need of nothing, woefully ignorant that the Two Witnesses will soon be wearing sackcloth and fasting, not wining and dining at black tie dinners!

Here's an excerpt from Philadelphia Church of God Leads Laodicean Era (Conclusion) that reveals the PCG ministers' initial response to Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall, and how Gerald Flurry's fomer right-hand man, PCG minister Dennis Leap, shamefully insisted on playing politics:

What's BEWILDERING to me is the different responses I've received from several of God's ministers who have read Beyond Babylon -- towards it and me -- before and after Dennis Leap's PARTIAL review! (Malachi 2:9).

When I faithfully sent a computer disk with my book on it to minister Wayne Turgeon, he graciously read all of it and responded:

"Oh, how I admire those with both the ability to write as well as the courage to put down their ideas on paper! I felt that you have a very gripping style of writing that uses twists and slants of words or phrases to make your point. I looked up every scripture you referenced and it became clear that you have really spent a lot of time in your Bible. Being Jewish, I think, gives you an added perspective that I could never have... Much of what you have written is not 'new revelation' as I'm sure that you'd readily agree... It's certainly not my place to determine if what you believe God has shown you is true or not, but would you mind presenting Mr. Flurry with an abbreviated version of what you feel is inspired... as I highly doubt that he would have time to read your whole book."

What does he mean it's not his place to determine if what I wrote is true or not? God holds every INDIVIDUAL responsible to prayerfully determine whether something is of God or not! How did we prove Malachi's Message was biblical? Did we rely solely on our minister's evaluation? Worldwide all over again?

Mind you, unlike Mr. Armstrong's lengthy manuscript of close to 300 typed pages, Beyond Babylon is only 1/2 that size, literally! I suggested Gerald Flurry read the first and last chapters. Mr. Turgeon told me Flurry returned it to him, saying something like, "He's always sending us stuff."

I have written short letters to the point, like correcting him about Mount Hermon and Mount Carmel after he continued to confuse the two in several articles. I'm familiar with them because I've been blessed to have lived next to both of them. Mr. Turgeon also wrote that I was a little "too radical" for Mr. Flurry and wondered what I'd said or done that had given him that impression. I explained it's because I took exception to his careless condemnation of those religious Jews who want the Temple built as "extremists." I wrote that it's extremist for secular, humanist Jews to oppose converting the Promised Land into a Holy Land!

Flurry was surprised and had also written against the STRONG EMOTIONS some feel over Jerusalem and Israel. How could God use someone so distant over there?! Some of us have a GOD-GIVEN LOVE for Jerusalem and a genuine passion for Judah that's most personal; we're not a stranger in OUR Homeland! (Psalms 102:14; Ps. 137; Isaiah 62). That's not "radical," it's BIBLICAL!

Minister Carl Craven also read Beyond Babylon and acknowledged it as biblical. He said he hadn't looked up every Scripture, but was sure if he had they'd also be used correctly. I commented that I know it's biblical, but that I was just waiting for headquarters to prove that to themselves as well. He expressed an understanding of how it's difficult to be patient meanwhile.

When Dennis Leap did call, it was to instruct me to STAY HOME FROM SABBATH SERVICES while he looked at the book! I didn't recall such an unusual request being made of Mr. Armstrong, and recognized it went against "innocent until proven guilty," but obliged with the hope of returning soon (John 7:51).

"Prophesy Not!"

After some time, I called Mr. Leap. He said he'd read PARTS of the book, and that it wasn't important whether Mr. Flurry had read it or not (even though I'd been led to believe he'd pass it on to him). He stated, "You use some pretty strong language in there," to which I replied, "But it's biblical, isn't it?" "Well, yes, but...". He also noted, like Mr. Turgeon, that most of it is what we already teach. I agreed and said that that should serve as a GOOD SIGN, but that the NEW REVELATION about the Two Witnesses and Europe is firmly built upon that foundation.

Dennis Leap found it difficult to accept that a LAY MEMBER would write such a book. He admitted Flurry had received bits of revelation from lay members, but NEVER a whole book! I didn't want to be judged by precedent, but by whether or not what I'd written is biblical. If I was in error, then it was his duty to clearly show me where FROM THE BIBLE, like Aquilla and Priscilla helped improve Apollos' understanding (Acts 18:26).

I was informed if I wanted to return to services, I would have to forget Beyond Babylon, act like a "regular lay member," and basically deny that it was from God! Like Mr. Armstrong, I had PROVEN what I'd written to be TRUE. Actually, Leap didn't say that it wasn't or attempt to refute it!

I told Mr. Leap I didn't want to play politics. By his insistence that I must be a MINISTER to write such a book, he was still looking to MEN OF STATURE! And since I'm not one, he was demanding that I "PROPHESY NOT!" (Amos 2:12).

He got very angry when I mentioned this and said he was severing all ties between the PCG and myself, and that I wasn't to claim any association with the PCG. He said I was now free to go and do whatever I felt God would have me to do with BB and not worry whether or not he or Mr. Flurry had read it! When I expressed the hope of reconciliation, he retorted we could when I repented. Of what? OBEYING GOD RATHER THAN MAN? Is that "rebellion?"

Mr. Armstrong WASN'T an ordained minister either when he wrote what he felt GOD would have him to share! The Identity Doctrine also wasn't so much new truth, as a new way of presenting it. I'm sure glad he didn't let those two points stop him! Aren't you? So I was UNJUSTLY DISFELLOWSHIPPED for believing God used me to write a book, and MARKED for exposing the facts about Mr. Leap's folly!

Johnson and the Jews

Lyndon Johnson -- A Friend in Deed
By Lenny Ben-David

A few weeks ago, the Associated Press reported that newly released tapes from US president Lyndon Johnson's White House office showed LBJ's "personal and often emotional connection to Israel." The news agency pointed out that during the Johnson presidency (1963-1969), "the United States became Israel's chief diplomatic ally and primary arms supplier."

But the news report does little to reveal the full historical extent of Johnson's actions on behalf of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Most students of the Arab-Israeli conflict can identify Johnson as the president during the 1967 war. But few know about LBJ's actions to rescue hundreds of endangered Jews during the Holocaust - actions that could have thrown him out of Congress and into jail. Indeed, the title of "Righteous Gentile" is certainly appropriate in the case of the Texan, whose centennial year is being commemorated this year.

Appropriately enough, the annual Jerusalem Conference announced this week that it will honor Johnson in February 2009.

Historians have revealed that Johnson, while serving as a young congressman in 1938 and 1939, arranged for visas to be supplied to Jews in Warsaw, and oversaw the apparently illegal immigration of hundreds of Jews through the port of Galveston, Texas.

A key resource for uncovering LBJ's pro-Jewish activity is the unpublished 1989 doctoral thesis by University of Texas student Louis Gomolak, "Prologue: LBJ's Foreign Affairs Background, 1908-1948." Johnson's activities were confirmed by other historians in interviews with his wife, family members and political associates.

Research into Johnson's personal history indicates that he inherited his concern for the Jewish people from his family. His aunt Jessie Johnson Hatcher, a major influence on LBJ, was a member of the Zionist Organization of America. According to Gomolak, Aunt Jessie had nurtured LBJ's commitment to befriending Jews for 50 years. As a young boy, Lyndon watched his politically active grandfather "Big Sam" and father "Little Sam" seek clemency for Leo Frank, the Jewish victim of a blood libel in Atlanta. Frank was lynched by a mob in 1915, and the Ku Klux Klan in Texas threatened to kill the Johnsons. The Johnsons later told friends that Lyndon's family hid in their cellar while his father and uncles stood guard with shotguns on their porch in case of KKK attacks. Johnson's speechwriter later stated, "Johnson often cited Leo Frank's lynching as the source of his opposition to both anti-Semitism and isolationism."

Already in 1934 - four years before Chamberlain's Munich sellout to Hitler - Johnson was keenly alert to the dangers of Nazism and presented a book of essays, Nazism: An Assault on Civilization, to the 21-year-old woman he was courting, Claudia Taylor - later known as "Lady Bird" Johnson. It was an incredible engagement present.

FIVE DAYS after taking office in 1937, LBJ broke with the "Dixiecrats" and supported an immigration bill that would naturalize illegal aliens, mostly Jews from Lithuania and Poland. In 1938, Johnson was told of a young Austrian Jewish musician who was about to be deported from the United States. With an element of subterfuge, LBJ sent him to the US Consulate in Havana to obtain a residency permit. Erich Leinsdorf, the world famous musician and conductor, credited LBJ for saving his life.

That same year, LBJ warned a Jewish friend, Jim Novy, that European Jews faced annihilation. "Get as many Jewish people as possible out [of Germany and Poland]," were Johnson's instructions. Somehow, Johnson provided him with a pile of signed immigration papers that were used to get 42 Jews out of Warsaw.

But that wasn't enough. According to historian James M. Smallwood, Congressman Johnson used legal and sometimes illegal methods to smuggle "hundreds of Jews into Texas, using Galveston as the entry port. Enough money could buy false passports and fake visas in Cuba, Mexico and other Latin American countries.... Johnson smuggled boatloads and planeloads of Jews into Texas. He hid them in the Texas National Youth Administration... Johnson saved at least four or five hundred Jews, possibly more."

During World War II Johnson joined Novy at a small Austin gathering to sell $65,000 in war bonds. According to Gomolak, Novy and Johnson then raised a very "substantial sum for arms for Jewish underground fighters in Palestine." One source cited by the historian reports that "Novy and Johnson had been secretly shipping heavy crates labeled 'Texas Grapefruit' - but containing arms - to Jewish underground 'freedom fighters' in Palestine."

ON JUNE 4, 1945, Johnson visited Dachau. According to Smallwood, Lady Bird later recalled that when her husband returned home, "he was still shaken, stunned, terrorized and bursting with an overpowering revulsion and incredulous horror at what he had seen."

A decade later while serving in the Senate, Johnson blocked the Eisenhower administration's attempts to apply sanctions against Israel following the 1956 Sinai Campaign. "The indefatigable Johnson had never ceased pressure on the administration," wrote I.L. "Si" Kenen, the head of AIPAC at the time.

As Senate majority leader, Johnson consistently blocked the anti-Israel initiatives of his fellow Democrat, William Fulbright, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Among Johnson's closest advisers during this period were several strong pro-Israel advocates, including Benjamin Cohen (who 30 years earlier was the liaison between Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis and Chaim Weizmann) and Abe Fortas, the legendary Washington "insider."

Johnson's concern for the Jewish people continued through his presidency. Soon after taking office in the aftermath of John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963, Johnson told an Israeli diplomat, "You have lost a very great friend, but you have found a better one."Just one month after succeeding Kennedy, LBJ attended the December 1963 dedication of the Agudas Achim Synagogue in Austin. Novy opened the ceremony by saying to Johnson, "We can't thank him enough for all those Jews he got out of Germany during the days of Hitler."

Lady Bird would later describe the day, according to Gomolak: "Person after person plucked at my sleeve and said, 'I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for him. He helped me get out.'" Lady Bird elaborated, "Jews had been woven into the warp and woof of all [Lyndon's] years."

THE PRELUDE to the 1967 war was a terrifying period for Israel, with the US State Department led by the historically unfriendly Dean Rusk urging an evenhanded policy despite Arab threats and acts of aggression. Johnson held no such illusions. After the war he placed the blame firmly on Egypt: "If a single act of folly was more responsible for this explosion than any other, it was the arbitrary and dangerous announced decision [by Egypt] that the Strait of Tiran would be closed [to Israeli ships and Israeli-bound cargo]."

Kennedy was the first president to approve the sale of defensive US weapons to Israel, specifically Hawk anti-aircraft missiles. But Johnson approved tanks and fighter jets, all vital after the 1967 war when France imposed a freeze on sales to Israel. Yehuda Avner recently described on these pages prime minister Levi Eshkol's successful appeal for these weapons on a visit to the LBJ ranch. (Pictured: LBJ receiving Yitzhak Rabin in the Oval Office.)

Israel won the 1967 war, and Johnson worked to make sure it also won the peace. "I sure as hell want to be careful and not run out on little Israel," Johnson said in a March 1968 conversation with his ambassador to the United Nations, Arthur Goldberg, according to White House tapes recently released.Soon after the 1967 war, Soviet premier Aleksei Kosygin asked Johnson at the Glassboro Summit why the US supported Israel when there were 80 million Arabs and only three million Israelis. "Because it is right," responded the straight-shooting Texan.

The crafting of UN Resolution 242 in November 1967 was done under Johnson's scrutiny. The call for "secure and recognized boundaries" was critical. The American and British drafters of the resolution opposed Israel returning all the territories captured in the war. In September 1968, Johnson explained, "We are not the ones to say where other nations should draw lines between them that will assure each the greatest security. It is clear, however, that a return to the situation of 4 June 1967 will not bring peace. There must be secure and there must be recognized borders. Some such lines must be agreed to by the neighbors involved."

Goldberg later noted, "Resolution 242 in no way refers to Jerusalem, and this omission was deliberate." This historic diplomacy was conducted under Johnson's stewardship, as Goldberg related in oral history to the Johnson Library. "I must say for Johnson," Goldberg stated. "He gave me great personal support."Robert David Johnson, a professor of history at Brooklyn College, recently wrote in The New York Sun, "Johnson's policies stemmed more from personal concerns - his friendship with leading Zionists, his belief that America had a moral obligation to bolster Israeli security and his conception of Israel as a frontier land much like his home state of Texas. His personal concerns led him to intervene when he felt that the State or Defense departments had insufficiently appreciated Israel's diplomatic or military needs."

President Johnson firmly pointed American policy in a pro-Israel direction. In a historical context, the American emergency airlift to Israel in 1973, the constant diplomatic support, the economic and military assistance and the strategic bonds between the two countries can all be credited to the seeds planted by LBJ.
It's great to read of cooperation between Joes and Jews, Joseph and Judah, since the United States (Artzot Habrit) - "the lands of the covenant" - is the prophesied biblical inheritance of Menashe ben Yosef.

Interesting (and controversial) to read about the illegal immigration of Jews into Galveston, Texas. I was in a work-study program at Kibbutz Sdot Yam, famous for illegal immigration and mentioned in Leon Uris' book, Exodus.

My kibbutz mother, Miriam Weiss, had been in the Warsaw Ghetto with her mother.

Pray for Iceland

Iceland is a fantastic, mysterious country located on the fringes of the habitable world where geothermal steam wisps slip through rock and ice fissures to escape into the cold blue sky. Iceland is one of the most advanced and educated nations on the planet and was fast becoming a world-class financial power – until its economy collapsed. What are the lessons for us?

The Christian War Against Christmas

Christmas condemned!

C.H. Spurgeon on Christmas and Roman Catholicism
First, because we do not believe in the mass at all, but abhor it, whether it be sung in Latin or in English. Secondly, because we find no Scriptural warrant whatever for observing any day as the birthday of the Savior; and consequently, its observance is a superstition

Christmas is About Giving -- Says Who?
Going into debt certainly isn't biblical, so why not break free from the trance? The "Christmas" rush is a "drug" pushed by commercial pimps prostituting a supposedly Christian holiday for their ungodly profits! They hold hands around the cash register and sing, "What a friend we have in Jesus."

Why I No Longer Celebrate Christmas
I was blessed to grow up in Risingsun, Ohio next door to my Grandma and Grandpa Hoover on their farm that embraced where we lived, surrounding us with its loving arms on both sides (until the age of 11) and behind, with our woods over yonder a bit, that I loved to walk through as a boy, always looking for my "brother" hawk, circling overhead, to greet me...

Will God Curse Our Countries for Christmas?
Abominable Christians, those who have the perverted religious preference of tradition over truth, are just like every other sinner unwilling to confess and forsake their sins and seek to whitewash or justify them. The difference is such professing Christians often pretend to be better or more righteous than those physical idolaters and immoral folks (who also refuse to repent) while they engage in spiritual idolatry (putting tradition over truth) and spiritual immorality (whoring around with other gods and foreign ways) bringing divine judgment upon our nations.

Plea to Diehard Catholics & Protestants to Repent
Having clearly seen how the practice of homosexuality is a sin (as I testify in God and the Gays), I can now see clearly how SPIRITUAL HOMOSEXUALS, the bloody Roman Catholic whore and her Protestant prostitute daughters (Rev. 17:5), prefer tradition over truth.

Do You Prefer TRADITION Over Truth?
If anybody is honestly interested in knowing whether or not this or that doctrine is actually biblical or merely traditional, all they have to do is objectively search the Scriptures like the noble Bereans did in Acts 17:11, after hearing Paul out, to see whether what he taught was true...

Is the Plain Truth Too Strong?
"Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression [the Church and Synagogue], And the house of Jacob [the family of Israelite nations - all Twelve Tribes of Israel] their sins. 2 Yet they seek Me daily, And delight to know My ways, As a nation that did righteousness, And did not forsake the ordinance of their God. They ask of Me the ordinances of justice; They take delight in approaching God" (Isaiah 58)

Avraham's Purchase of the Machpelah

"... and Avraham weighed out to Ephron the silver that he had named in the hearing of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant."
(Genesis 23:16)
Marcheshvan 23, 5769/November 21, 2008

It may strike us as unusual that Avraham avinu - our patriarch Abraham's first purchase of land in the land that G-d promised to him and to his descendants, would be a cave in which to bury his wife Sara. But for Avraham, his wife's burial plot was not a memorial to the past but a bridge to the future. Avraham knew, intuitively, perhaps, that the land G-d promised him as an eternal inheritance was not going to be received on a silver platter. On the contrary, every inch of the blessed land of Israel was to be acquired through conquering, purchasing, settling and working the land, and through establishing households of faith and trust in G-d, upon the land. Just like G-d's promise of the rebuilt Holy Temple, the inheritance of the land of Israel is earned through much toil and trial.

Avraham diligently negotiated his purchase of the field and cave of Machpelah from Ephron the Hittite. He slowly and deliberately counted out the four hundred shekel agreed upon in front of the Hittite townspeople. He carefully repeated the terms of the contract between himself and Ephron, for all to hear. Avraham foresaw that time and time again throughout the millennia the right of possession of Machpelah by his descendants, the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, would be denied, disputed and disregarded by the nations of the world. The recording in detail of his purchase, by the holy Torah, would ultimately prove the final word.

How ironic, then, that the very issue of the Jewish right of residency and ownership of property in the city of Hevron, hundreds of meters from the Machpelah itself, would be once again in the headlines this week, the week that we read in Torah of Avraham's purchase. Some two years ago, after much painstaking and deliberate negotiation, a Jew purchased from an Arab a certain house in Hevron. The contract was signed, the sum agreed upon was handed over, and a small number of Jewish families moved in. To this day, the legal acquisition of the house, named by its Jewish inhabitants, the "Peace House," has not been recognized by the Israeli courts.

Ostensibly the problem derives from the fact the the Arab owner who signed a contract and received the money in full for the property, has since denied ever having sold it. This should hardly be cause for surprise, and certainly not be considered a serious claim in court, for the following reason: The Palestinian authority long ago outlawed the selling of property to Jews. The punishment for violating the law is death. Were the former owner of the "Peace House" to openly admit to selling it to Jews, Arab terrorist henchmen would snuff out his life within hours, in broad daylight, for all the townsfolk of Hevron to witness, even before the Palestinian "police" could lay their hands on him.

Anticipating all this, the Jewish purchasers took precaution to record phone conversation and videotape the actual transaction, after the manner of Avraham, who recorded his transaction with Ephron. The purchasers and residents of the "Peace House" hope and believe that in time the Israeli courts will come to accept the indisputable evidence of their legal acquisition of the property. Until that day, they, and tens of thousands of fellow Jews who have returned to the land of Israel to fulfill G-d's promise to Avraham, are ready, willing and able to carry on the struggle to regain and repossess the land.

Avraham's purchase of Machpelah came after he had successfully measured up to ten trials by which G-d tested his spiritual mettle, his trust in G-d's word. It has since become axiomatic that the acquisition of the land of Israel is gained through blood, sweat and tears. Unfortunately, today in the land of Israel, those who lack the courage and determination to carry on the sacred work of Avraham, are bent on creating obstacles for those that do. The final chapters of today's ongoing saga haven't yet been written, but the conclusion is of a certainty, having been recorded long ago in the book of Genesis:

"So the field of Ephron, which was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre, the field, and the cave which was therein, and all the trees that were in the field, that were in all the border thereof round about, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city." (Genesis 23:17-18)

"And Abraham was old, advanced in days... " (Genesis 24:1) The original Hebrew verse is best translated as, "And Abraham was old, arriving in days... " Our sages teach us that when a person dies and seeks entry into the next world the days of his life come forward to testify as to how he spent his days: in holiness or otherwise. In Avraham's case, his days arrived before the heavenly court and testified to a life of righteousness.

PCG (Philadelphia Church of God)

Philadelphia Church of God Leads the Laodicean Era (Part 1)
When Gerald Flurry wasn't anything in his own sight or mind God used him and now, unfortunately, it appears to have gone to his head, all the new revelation (simply a deeper understanding of some things), and he forgets that all truth is from and belongs to GOD and that God can use a donkey to deliver it (1 Cor. 4:7). Gerald Flurry has become so swollen in his own imagination that he fails to see that he is the leader of LAODICEA! He knows what warning God is giving the Laodiceans, of which he is chief! He had better heed his own words...

Philadelphia Church of God Leads Laodicean Era (Conclusion)
"It's certainly not my place to determine if what you believe God has shown you is true or not, but would you mind presenting Mr. Flurry with an abbreviated version of what you feel is inspired... as I highly doubt that he would have time to read your whole book."

Stephen Flurry and The Philadelphia Church of God
Stephen Flurry, son of Gerald Flurry, pastor general of the Philadelphia Church of God (based in Edmond, Oklahoma), has published a book that Amazon sells, Raising the Ruins: The Fight to Revive the Legacy of Herbert W. Armstrong.

The Work of God Must Go Forward!
The Work of God must go forward. The only work that's left to do now is focus on the NATIONAL LEVEL. We must get out God's ultimatum and fast! Europe is on the rise and Jerusalem is getting international attention (Zech. 14:2). Soon God's two witnesses will rise and shine in a world of darkness (Isa. 60:1-2). God's about to restore His lamp to the Middle East! (Rev. 11:3; 1 Kgs. 11:36; Amos 9:11; Zech. 12:8).

PCG: Carrying on Business as Usual
If you truly saw what is coming on this Earth, and had a vision of tomorrow, you would know that the Gathering Storm darkens as you sip champagne and boast that you're rich and in need of nothing, woefully ignorant that the Two Witnesses will soon be wearing sackcloth and fasting, not wining and dining at black tie dinners!

The Church of God Must Warn the World!
We know that certain prophecies were not to be fulfilled until these "last days." Therefore their sealed messages weren't to break their silence until the appointed time (Dan. 12:9). With the advent of the nuclear age, we've been living, for the first time in history, with the weapons of mass destruction that can erase all life from off planet Earth! (Matt. 24:21-22).

Politics in the Church of God Hinders Progress
Gerald Flurry refused to go forward with Beyond Babylon and fell backwards, treading old ground and is now going in circles, business as usual, as Europe rises and Judah and Israel have yet to be warned.

Worldwide Church Of God All Over Again?
Let’s see to it that Philadelphia Church of God (Judah) doesn’t go the way of the Worldwide Church of God (Israel). These biblical principles still apply: don’t put undue trust in men; work out your own salvation, it’s not a group affair; beware the scholarly approach that demands you rely on men - not God’s Spirit or personal Bible study.

The Watchmen
"I have set Watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem"
God has called us to do a Work! Anyone can and should do good works in private, but God has called us collectively to COME OUT OF THE CLOSET and deliver His Message! We're to help save individuals and nations from the coming Holocaust!

Jerusalem, Israel

HaRav Yehuda Kreuser SHLIT"A, Rosh Yeshiva


24 Marcheshvan 5769/21-22 November 2008


"Abraham listened to Ephron, and Abraham weighed out to Ephron the money that he had mentioned in the hearing of the children of Heth, four hundred silver shekalim in negotiable currency. And Ephron's field that was in Machpelah, that was facing Mamre, stood - the field and the cave within it and all the trees in the field, within its entire boundary all around - as Abraham's as a purchase in the view of the children of Heth, with all who came to the gate of his city."

And so, the Torah tells us of the long and hard negotiations between Abraham and the children of Heth in which he obtained the property of the Machpelah in Hebron. Today, they tell us that there is no alternative to direct talks, and the proof would be from here, as Abraham, after negotiating long and hard, finally came to an understanding with the children of Heth who have been living in the land from time immemorial.

But at what price? At what cost to Abraham and his descendants?

Our Rabbis teach us in the Midrash, that the children of Heth refused time and time again to listen to Abraham and to sell him the cave. Finally, the only option open for Abraham to which the children of Heth would agree, was to exchange the property of the Machpelah for another part of Israel: Har HaMoriah - the Temple Mount.

With no other option, Abraham not only paid the high price of 400 silver shekalim, but also gave the Temple Mount to the descendants of the children of Heth forever. So we find that when Joshua entered the Land of Israel, he killed the king of Jerusalem but did not conquer Jerusalem. But the children of Benjamin did not drive out the Jebusite inhabitant of Jerusalem, so the Jebusite dwelt with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem until this day. Now even though they killed the king of Jerusalem, they still did not take the city, not because they were unable to but because they were not permitted. Why? Because it was given to the children of Heth from the time of Abraham, and they settled in Jerusalem.

But there were other inhabitants of Jerusalem whom the Jewish people could not remove, they being the children of the Philistines with whom Abraham had made an additional agreement: Abimelech, king of the Philistines. "So Abraham took flocks and cattle and gave them to Abimelech, and the two of them entered into a covenant." Regarding this covenant with the Philistines, G-d said: I gave you the Land and to your descendants, and you made a covenant to allow his children and grandchildren to live here, after I commanded the children of Israel not to allow any of them to live? I swear that the Philistines will kill 7 of your righteous descendants, and destroy 7 houses of worship, and control the Holy Ark for 7 months.

It was not until the time of David that the covenant with the Philistines that Abraham made (and which was reinforced by Isaac), was over. It was for this reason that finally, the Jewish people under King David were able to conquer the city of Jerusalem.

Still, the area of the Temple Mount stayed under the control of Araunah a descendant of the children of Heth, who was given this area for exchange of the property of the Machpelah. It was not until King David was able to convince Araunah to sell the property, that it finally came over to the possession of the Jewish people forever.

Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob all made treaties with the nations that lived here. Still, Hashem did not look upon this as a good thing and the Jewish people paid the price throughout our history. Although these nations were here at the beginning of the "dawn" of the Jewish people, today all that has changed; the Jewish people have come home. We have arrived.

It is not for nothing that the ruling of the supreme court of Israel to remove Jews from Jewish property in Hebron falls on the parsha of "Chayei Sarah", the parsha in which Abraham purchased the Machpelah.

As our rabbis teach us, three places in the Land of Israel cannot be claimed by the nations: Hebron, the Temple Mount and Joseph's tomb. It is time to show that deed of possession of the Land to ourselves, and finally have the courage to tell the world that there is only one owner to the land of Israel - the Jewish people.

With love of Israel,

Levi Chazen

Expulsion of Palestinians

Expulsion of Palestinians
Sir, - Mass expulsion of Palestinians without howls of protest and world condemnation? Yes, but unfortunately, only in the Gulf States. The UN obviously understands that such decisive acts are preventive measures to ensure national security from subversive elements who flout their support for their blood-brother Saddam Hussein. If only Israel would express such logic and concern for its personal health and national welfare...

Terrorist Bombing
Sir, - "Nobody in the government and nobody who believes in democracy is ever going to give in to this people, not now, not tomorrow, not in 100 years, not in 1,000 years and not on this side of hell and hell is where these people ought to be."
A Knesset member's outburst after another terrorist attack? No, rather it's Northern Ireland's Minister Richard Weedham blasting the IRA's recent hospital bombing.
Perhaps Messrs. Bush and Baker will rush to the scene and convene another "peace" conference before this "instransigent" fellow fouls up their plans for a "new world order...."

Peace Now: Arabs and Jews Must Go Their Separate Ways
Genesis 15:
18 On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, "To your descendants [through Isaac] I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates: 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites."

It is imperative that there begins, today, a campaign among world Jewry to explain the full extent of the Arab hatred and danger. The complete truth must be told to the masses of good Jews both to justify the need to remove the Arabs and to expose the dangers of the liberal Establishment bloc.

Israel's Only Way Out: Follow Kahane!
Israel must make concessions, Israel must do this, Israel must do that, while the Arabs continue to get away with mass murder and terrorism (while promising peace and feigning ignorance), aided and abetted by the international community...

Zionism is an atheistic movement masquerading as the fulfillment of religious prophecy. Zionism is a plan for an end run around God’s. It is Satanism.

Biblical Zionism is definitely a part of the Word and Will of God, prophesied, as Christian Zionists recognize, even if some globalists attempt to pervert its holy purpose, as those running Israel into the ground are doing. The Hellenists, useful idiots in many ways, will fail and the plan of God, His grand design, will be fulfilled.

See: Christian Zionists, Jews, and Israel

God utilized political Zionism for His purposes, just as He utilized America's rebellion against the English throne. On the surface, neither were so special or righteous, but both were instrumental in fulfilling prophecy.

As for the treatment of the former inhabitants of the lands that God decreed for His people, whether Arabs or Indians, I'm sure the Canaanites would offer scathing condemnation but others would see God's purpose being worked out, however imperfectly to limited human vision. God addresses any injustices in His own way and time (2 Sam. 21:1-14), but dismisses those charges that exaggerate or exploit them to deny our basic biblical right to the lands He has chosen for us (Acts 17:26).

See: A Jewish Homeland

Rabbi Dovid Feldman, Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss & Massoud Shadjareh at WCAR

They look like those religious Jews who failed to make the move from their ghettos, who didn't let the fire under their butts get them going, blind to the prophecies about the restoration of the Jewish homeland, deaf to the cries to save themselves, who perished in the flames of the Holocaust.


"How can one explain the inaction of those rabbis who agree that we can enter the Temple Mount? How can one explain those who distort the truth and prohibit the entrance of Jews to the Temple Mount? After 2,000 years of prayers asking that God return us to Zion and speedily rebuild the Temple, what excuse could there be for preferring the Wall of Tears over the House of God?

The best answer can be found in the book, Ame Banim Smecha, written by Rabbi Yisachar Teichtel. Rabbi Teichtel was a Chasid who lived in Hungary and perished in the holocaust. While on the run from the Nazis, he wrote a powerful book quoting his sources from memory. He confronts the question that haunts many Jews: "why were so many religious Jews and Torah scholars killed during the holocaust?" His answer is unequivocal, the religious Jews and the Torah scholars watched the secular Zionists return to Zion; and they did not learn from their actions. Jews who prayed thrice daily for the return to Zion should have immediately realized that if secular Jews are leaving the exile, how much more so should they. By turning their backs on the Land of Israel, Rabbi Teichtel writes, their fate was sealed. God hates hypocrisy and punishes those who invoke his name in vain. And so they stayed in exile to be consumed by the fires of the Holocaust."

Obama endorses "Auschwitz borders" for Israel

Messrs. Friedman, Victor and Kohr,
On June 4, 2008, Barack Obama said to you and a huge AIPAC audience: "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided." Now that it is apparent that the President-Elect has broken his promise, and not just "clarified" his position, when are you going to confront him about his grievous breach of trust, and what will you say to him? You owe it to all of our fellow Jews in America, including the 78% of the Jewish voters who cast their ballot for Mr. Obama, and all of the Jews in Israel, to demand that he keep his original promise.

Most sincerely,
Buddy Macy

Moses was called an Egyptian

Re: Chosen few always hated by religious majority

So, you assert your lineage to Joseph, which means you are descended of the interracial Manasseh and Ephraim, whose mother was Egyptian - a Hamite - and what's more, the daughter of a priest of the Egyptian gods.

Those who rightly divide the Word of truth know that NOWHERE does it say Asenath, the "Egyptian" mother of Manasseh (USA) and Ephraim (British- Israelites), was a Hamite. You've taken liberties with the Word of God that enslave you to error and cause you to stumble in your spiritual darkness.

Moses at one point was also called an "Egyptian," and those who carelessly assume all Egyptians were black would be sorely mistaken:

Exodus 2:19
They answered, "An Egyptian rescued us from the shepherds. He [Egyptian Moses] even drew water for us and watered the flock."

Today when folks speak of Africans, most would think of blacks, however there are plenty of white Africans, even though their numbers are dwindling due to cruel conditions and savage mistreatment by those who fail to remember "Joseph" and appreciate how White Israelites (enjoying the blessings of Joseph's Birthright) built up their God-given lands, their biblical inheritances, that are now suffering, withering on the vine, due to unnatural circumstances and black mismanagement.

As far as Asenath being raised in a pagan household, so was Abraham, the father of the faithful, and Rahab and Ruth and Rachel and Leah, as Herbert W. Armstrong mentions in The Sin of Interracial Marriage:

"Abraham’s grandson, Jacob, who had worked for Laban for a long time you know, and when he left Laban, his wife Rachael stole the idols from her father Laban and carried those little idols with her. And Laban came out to find them. They were his gods. So they were worshipping a different god over there. But Abraham sent to get someone of that race, of that color, of that family, for a wife for Isaac, even though they were of a different religion."

Religious beliefs do not change one's race, our ethnic make up, our DNA, do they? However, the true religion is to change our heart, so help us God, to let go of human reasonings, idolatrous traditions, and learn to think like God and submit Father knows best (Isa. 55:7-9, Jeremiah 31:33, Ezekiel 18:31).

David Ben-Ariel

Free Jonathan Pollard!

Jonathan Pollard was a civilian American Naval intelligence analyst. In the mid 1980's (circa 1983-1984), Pollard discovered that information vital to Israel's security was being deliberately withheld by certain elements within the U.S. national security establishment.

Israel was legally entitled to this vital security information according to a 1983 Memorandum of Understanding between the two countries.

The information being withheld from Israel included Syrian, Iraqi, Libyan and Iranian nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare capabilities - being developed for use against Israel. It also included information on ballistic missile development by these countries and information on planned terrorist attacks against Israeli civilian targets.

When Pollard discovered this suppression of information and asked his superiors about it, he was told to "mind his own business", and that "Jews get nervous talking about poison gas; they don't need to know."

He also learned that the objective of cutting off the flow of information to Israel was to severely curtail Israel's ability to act independently in defense of her own interests.

Pollard was painfully aware that Israeli lives were being put in jeopardy as a result of this undeclared intelligence embargo. He did everything he possibly could to stop this covert policy and to have the legal flow of information to Israel restored. When his efforts met no success, he began to give the information to Israel directly.

Jonathan Pollard was an ideologue, not a mercenary. The FBI concluded after nine months of polygraphing that Pollard acted for ideological reasons only, not for profit. This fact was recognized by the sentencing judge who declined to fine Pollard. (See the addendum for further details.)

Furthermore, on May 11, 1998, Israel formally acknowledged Jonathan Pollard had been a bona fide Israeli agent. This fact wiped out any remaining doubt about Jonathan Pollard's motives. Being an official agent is, by definition, the polar opposite of being a mercenary.

In 1985, his actions were discovered by the U.S. government. His instructions from Israel were to seek refuge in the Israeli embassy in Washington. When Pollard and his former wife sought refuge there, they were at first received and then summarily thrown out into the waiting arms of the FBI.

Jonathan Pollard never had a trial. At the request of both the U.S. and Israeli governments, he entered into a plea agreement, which spared both governments a long, difficult, expensive and potentially embarrassing trial.

Jonathan Pollard fulfilled his end of the plea agreement, cooperating fully with the prosecution.
Nevertheless, Pollard received a life sentence and a recommendation that he never be paroled - in complete violation of the plea agreement he had reached with the government.

Jonathan Pollard was never indicted for harming the United States.

Jonathan Pollard was never indicted for compromising codes, agents, or war plans.

Jonathan Pollard was never charged with treason. [Legally, treason is a charge that is only applicable when one spies for an enemy state in time of war.]

Jonathan Pollard was indicted on only one charge: one count of passing classified information to an ally, without intent to harm the United States.

Prior to sentencing, then-Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger delivered a 46-page classified memorandum to the sentencing judge. Since then, neither Pollard nor any of his cleared attorneys have ever been allowed to access the memorandum to challenge the false charges it contains-a clear violation of Pollard's constitutional rights.

The day before sentencing, Weinberger delivered a four-page supplemental memorandum to the sentencing judge. In it, he falsely accused Pollard of treason. Also in the supplemental memorandum, Weinberger advocated a life sentence in clear violation of Pollard's plea agreement. The implication that follows from Weinberger's false characterization of Pollard's offense as "treason" is that the country Pollard served, Israel, is an enemy state.

Pollard was shown the supplemental Weinberger memorandum only once, just moments before sentencing - hardly adequate time to prepare an appropriate defense to rebut the false accusations in it.

No one else in the history of the United States has ever received a life sentence for passing classified information to an ally - only Jonathan Pollard. The median sentence for this offense is two to four years. Even agents who have committed far more serious offenses on behalf of hostile nations have not received such a harsh sentence.

Pollard's attorney never appealed from the life sentence. The time to file for such an appeal was within ten days of sentencing. Years later, with a different attorney, Pollard filed a habeas corpus challenge to the sentence.

The Court of Appeals, in a two-to-one decision, rejected the challenge, largely on procedural grounds.

The majority placed heavy emphasis on the failure to appeal from the life sentence in a timely manner, and on the resulting far heavier burden faced by Pollard in seeking to challenge the sentence via habeas corpus. [Note: "Habeas corpus" is a procedure by which an incarcerated person may bring a court challenge to the legality of his or her incarceration - often long after the underlying case has been concluded.]

In a dissenting opinion, Court of Appeals Judge Stephen Williams called the case "a fundamental miscarriage of justice," and wrote that he would have ordered that Pollard's sentence be vacated.
In November 1995, Israel granted Jonathan Pollard Israeli citizenship. The official presentation took place in January of 1996. This publicly signaled to the U.S. Israel's willingness to accept full responsibility for Pollard.

U.S. government sources falsely accuse Pollard in the media of passing "rooms full of classified information" and "hundreds of thousands of documents" to Israel. This volume of information is an absurdity! Pollard would have needed to make numerous "drops" using a moving van to have transferred such a large volume of information. In actual fact, Jonathan Pollard made a grand total of eleven "drops" to the Israelis, using only a small briefcase to hold the documents.

The government used an insidious formula to exaggerate the volume of information that Jonathan Pollard passed to Israel. The formula was: if only one page or a single sentence of a document was passed to the Israelis, it was counted as if the whole document had been transmitted. Even referenced documents and sources were counted as having been transmitted in toto. Using this calculation, a single page could be counted as 50 hard-bound 500 page volumes!

There is no Mr. "X".

The CIA claim that another highly-placed spy in the U.S. had to exist in order to give Jonathan Pollard his highly specific tasking orders is a complete fabrication. To understand how Pollard was tasked by Israel to secure specific documents, see: Was there another U.S. spy tasking Pollard? - Mr. ‘X' Exposed.

On May 12, 1998 , in the same statement in which the Government of Israel publicly acknowledged Jonathan Pollard as an Israeli agent, it accepted full responsibility for him, and indicated its commitment to securing his release and repatriation to Israel.

Jonathan Pollard has repeatedly expressed his remorse publicly and in private letters to the President and others. He regrets having broken the law, and is sorry he did not find a legal means to act upon his concerns for Israel. (See Remorse Page.)

Jonathan Pollard has been openly linked to the Middle East Peace Process since 1995.

The Israeli government recognized long ago that Jonathan's sentence was unjust, that the documents he delivered to Israel did not remotely cause the damage that the prosecution claimed but never proved. As a result of this recognition, various Israeli administrations have negotiated, as a matter of basic fairness, to secure Jonathan's release.

Since 1995, within the context of the peace process, the US has repeatedly exploited the plight of Jonathan Pollard to extract heavy concessions from Israel.

However despite express promises made by the United States to Israel, Jonathan Pollard remains in jail.

It was the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin who, in 1995, first began openly to negotiate for Jonathan's release as part of the peace process.

Although President Clinton promised Prime Minister Rabin that he would release Jonathan as part of a Middle East peace settlement, the President refused to honor his promise after Rabin was assassinated.

Rabin's successor, Prime Minister Shimon Peres, continued to link Jonathan to the peace process, and even went so far as to include a spy swap proposal as part of the deal for Pollard's release.

The Wye Plantation summit is a prime example of U.S. exploitation of Jonathan Pollard.
Both before and again during the Wye summit negotiations in the fall of 1998, President Clinton promised to release Jonathan Pollard. Pollard was the deal-maker at Wye which enabled the accords to be completed.

At the last minute, with the eyes of the world focused on the Wye Accords signing ceremony which was about to take place in Washington, Clinton reneged on Pollard's release, creating a storm of negative publicity for Israel.

How the Wye fiasco came about:

In September, 1998, just before the mid-term Congressional elections, President Clinton (who at the time was facing impeachment hearings and in need of a foreign policy PR victory) asked Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to attend a three-way summit with the Palestinians at Wye River, Maryland.

Clinton knew that a successful summit at Wye just before the Congressional elections would be good not only for his image, but would also reap great political benefits for the Democrats in their bid to regain control of Congress. As an inducement to Netanyahu, Clinton promised to release Jonathan Pollard within the context of the summit.

Understanding the value of Jonathan Pollard for his own re-election bid, and needing him as a sweetener to sell any kind of "peace" deal to the Israeli people, Netanyahu ignored the entreaties of Republican friends like Newt Gingrich and agreed to attend the summit. (Gingrich would later repay Netanyahu by leading the Republican charge of slander and lies against Jonathan Pollard.)

Once the Wye summit was underway, Clinton quickly "forgot" his promise to free Jonathan Pollard and there was little Netanyahu could do.

Talks at Wye broke down over the release of Palestinian murderers with Jewish blood on their hands and over Israel's request for the extradition of Ghazi Jabali, the chief of Police in Gaza who was wanted for his role in planning and executing terrorist attacks in Israel.

To break the stalemate, the Palestinians suggested Jonathan Pollard as the solution. They proposed that Pollard be sold to Netanyahu once again: the US would give Jonathan to Israel in return for Israel's freeing of hundreds of Palestinian terrorists and immunity for Ghazi Jabali.

The US and Israel agreed to the Palestinian plan to swap Pollard for terrorists and murderers.
President Clinton personally worked out the details of the deal in a late-night private session with a Palestinian and an Israeli representative.

According to the deal, Prime Minister Netanyahu was to receive a side letter from President Clinton the next morning (one of approximately 30 side letters the Americans had promised) guaranteeing Pollard's release for November 11, 1998, one week after the US House elections.

The Pollard negotiation was the deal-maker at Wye which allowed the summit to be successfully wrapped up and a signing ceremony to be planned for the next morning in Washington, on Friday October 23, 1998.

Only hours before the signing ceremony, P.M. Netanyahu received all of the American side-letters that had been promised to him, except one - the one guaranteeing the release of Jonathan Pollard.

Netanyahu threatened not to attend the signing ceremony unless he got the Pollard side letter. Clinton said, "Trust me." Netanyahu, knowing he was about to be double-crossed by Clinton over Pollard for the second time, refused.

Netanyahu demanded that in the absence of a side letter of guarantee, Pollard should be freed into his custody immediately, or no signing ceremony. Arik Sharon supported Netanyahu and they threatened to leave Wye without signing the accords... Click here to continue reading

Europe to rape Jerusalem

Israel has every right to be paranoid about Europe!

Re: South Africa Ruined by Black Marxists (ANC)

David Ben-Ariel,
Shalom aleichem.

Why speak peace when war is in your heart, as your post proves?

It looks like not anyone - Gentile or Jew is posting any comment.

Many email me privately, Jews, Israelites and Gentiles, just like the Jewish religious leader Nicodemus came to Yeshua in private (John 3:1-21). Of course, I would rather folks post publicly, even anonymously, but that's their prerogative isn't it?

Is it because other would-be correspondents are wise to your far-fetched conspiracy theories and your extreme Christian Zionist paranoia regarding Israel and your immagined threats to it - from Europe of all places.

Hitler restoring Germany to power and posing a military threat to Europe and British Israel appeared to be a "far-fetched conspiracy theory" to practically everybody but Winston Churchill, didn't it? And yet Churchill was right - a lone voice in the wilderness - and the rest were wrong. History is filled with "conspiracy theories" that found fulfillment in due time, that were put into practice, that became facts on the ground, as some courageously warned they would. Jabotinsky also promoted a "far-fetched conspiracy theory" - that European Jewry was about to be completely destroyed. Some said he was mad, others questioned his motivations, but Jabotinsky was right - and those who doubted or mocked him were dead wrong.

Both the Bible and history testify Israel has every right to be "paranoid" about blood-soaked Europe. Have you failed to learn the lessons of the Holocaust? Don't you know your Bible? Why play deaf, dumb and blind to the testimony they dare to share?

Is your name really David Ben-Ariel?

Yes, I legally changed it to David Ben-Ariel in 1989, as mentioned in God-given Names.
Is your name really Baruch?

Are you indeed in fact even a Jew?

I have never claimed to be a Jew according to halacha (Jewish law), according to the religion of Judaism. However, like Christian Zionist Orde Wingate, I recognize the identity of Joseph as British Israel: the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic peoples.

Joseph isn't Jewish! Many remain willfully or woefully (God knows) blind to this fact. Some of us know the importance of preserving the biblical distinction between the Twelve Tribes of Israel and don't carelessly confuse them all as "Jews." There are Jews and there are Israelites. Why not learn the difference?

Where you arrested and sent packing from Eretz Israel by the police and Shin Bet for attempting to blow up the Muslim Dome of the Rock?

I was never arrested but I was detained and later deported, as explained in Israel's Unjust Deportation of David Ben-Ariel and Blow Up the Mosques or An Expired Visa? The Israeli equivalent of the KGB, similar to Stasi, Shabak, know beyond any shadow of a doubt that I wasn't involved in any conspiracy theory they concocted.

Shin Bet overreacted to "Will Jerusalem become an international city?" -- an article of mine that was published in Jerusalem and read throughout Israel (and now the world) where I warn about the German-Vatican plot to occupy Jerusalem and encourage the proper Israeli authorities to restore the Temple Mount as the Temple Mount: to build the Third Temple as Bible-believing Christians and Jews know must and will be done.

What a wonderful idea - but such extreme and dangerous ideas have been explored by people before you

Dangerous ideas? Extreme to who? Those far out in Left field? The faithless? Those who cower like dhimmis before the Nazi Muslims? Those who advocate surrender rather than call upon Israel to exercise their sovereignty and remove the threat the Muslims present? Appeasement is dangerous - far more dangerous, as it will never work and only serves to incite the enemies of God and Israel to make greater demands.

I think of the late Chief Rabbi of Israel, Schlomo Goren of Blessed Memory. He wanted to do what you are alleged to have plotted. After East Jerusalem was liberated and the holy sites fell into our hands, he too wished - or he expressed the wish to blow up the Muslim holy site. He told Moshe Dayan what was on his mind and Dayan told him in no uncertain terms : "If you carry on talking like this Rabbi, I will have to arrest you".

Shame on Moshe Dayan! Like the Hellenists who are running Israel into the ground today and into the iron jaws of a German-Jesuit EU, Moshe Dayan hated anything truly Jewish or biblical and wanted to cut the Jewish People off from their spiritual roots.

Moshe had learnt well - from a Christian Zionist, Captain Orde Wingate - a true Friend of the Jewish people - who helped set up the Hagganah and had shown the Jewish people how to fight - that the true way to wage war was to show compassion to non-combitants and innocents and not to provoke non military or religious targets.

Moshe Dayan miserably failed to learn from the British-Israelite and Christian Zionist, Orde Wingate. Otherwise he would have said, "Amen!" to Schlomo Goren's prayerful thoughts that required faithful actions - especially since he had the authority and God-given opportunity to do it. Orde Wingate would know, as Christian and Jewish realists today do, that there are few innocents among the Arabs who occupy the Promised Land of Israel.

As a Bible believer, not just reader, Orde Wingate would recognize the Temple Mount must be restored as the Temple Mount and that it's an unnatural situation for it to continue to remain under Gentile occupation and suffer defilement by foreign objects.

Ben-Ariel - you're no Wingate

You've proven you're not qualified to say since you've misrepresented Orde Wingate already - not that I need to be a Wingate when I am Ben-Ariel, by the grace of God: a son of Jerusalem, a scion of the Lion of God.

the modern State of Israel doesn't need extreme religious millenarian right wingers like yourself to provoke acts of imported terrorism, calculated in your wild conspiracy theories to provoke an Armaggedon-type war which will hasten the advent of the Messiah (Moshiach).

Look at how you spew stereotypes and expose your ignorance of my beliefs! You don't have a clue - or at least you pretend to be so gullible to believe the conspiracy theories, the disinformation campaign, Shabak engages in against me (and all who truly love Israel), since they suffer from the Cain syndrome.

I don't subscribe to your stereotypical Christian beliefs and I wasn't involved in any provocative act - except for writing an article exposing the German-Jesuit plans for Jerusalem that has provoked their useful idiots. It appears truth terrorizes those who live a lie and prefer darkness to light.

And in your crazy reckoning us Jews will finally accept Jesus. Fuck off, with friends like you - who needs enemies?

I know that ultimately our Jewish brethren will look up and at long last recognize Yeshua - the Pierced One - and mourn for Him as for their only Son. I also know Judaism teaches everybody must become a Noahide under Mashiach (Messiah) who isn't Jewish, either by conviction or coercion. Do I fear such beliefs or lose sleep over them? No. I'm not irrational or paranoid but exercise the sound mind the Scriptures afford.

My staunchly pro-Israel, Christian Zionist beliefs, aren't the threat to Israeli sovereignty or Jerusalem's future that Jews should be concerned about. The "friends" Israelis would do well to beware are folks like Bill Clinton, George Bush and all those European leaders who are pushing them to accept a "peace" that has no basis in reality, as well as embracing "peace partners" like Mahmoud Abbas who will stab them in the back.

I see, in your articles and blogs, you've also rubbished our Labour President Shimon Peres.

You mean that bloody vulture Yitzhak Rabin referred to as an "indefatigable subversive"? Has Yitzhak Rabin "rubbished" Shimon Peres or merely exposed the dirt about him? I don't doubt that unclean bird has done some good for Israel, despite himself, but that doesn't justify Shimon Peres selling out Israel or betraying Jerusalem.

And when it came time to make peace,Shimon Peres wasn't found wanting. He agreed, as did Begin to hand back the Sinai to Egypt. Then on to Camp David and Wye River - but we didn't have a real partner in Yasser Arafat - and worse was to come with Hamas. It still was worth the try. Trying to save lives. This is not a weakness of yiddishkeit - but a real strength - this striving for peace.

Israel never had a peace partner. It is not only irresponsible, but criminal and insane, to dismember the Land or sacrifice life on the self-righteous altar of "striving for peace" rather than enforce peace through strength as Meir Kahane called for, remembering the Law of Moses with its God-given solutions (Malachi 4:4, Daniel 9:11).

In spite of all the terrorism that is waged against the Jewish people. Though when it comes to defence, there is unity amongst us in a strong IDF with first strike capacity.

Israel, like the United States and British Commonwealth, has the power but lacks the will or proper leaders to use it, as well as suffering from a devastating loss of national meaning and purpose and drive, as prophesied: "And I will break the pride of your power" (Leviticus 26:19) and "The whole head is sick, And the whole heart faints" (Isaiah 1:5). Your treacherous leaders insured defeat in Lebanon with their restraint and retreat, so what are you blathering about? Gaza continues to be a bleeding wound and Sderot suffers and Jerusalem is about to be brutally raped.

I'm a left winger who has fought with the South African Defence Force in Angola, with the ANC in Zimbabwe and South Africa and with the IDF in Judea and Sumaria - and I am prepared to let the latter go if we can secure peace - or we are wasting too many lives in a territory that can't be properly militarily defended.

It's good you fought with the South African Defence Force in Angola, but why then turn around and terribly serve as a tool for the ANC terrorists in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe ruins) and dying South Africa? Having served in Judea and Samaria, you should know Kahane was right: Israel must expel sworn Arab enemies and annex those biblical lands they presently occupy. It's defeatist to bleat otherwise.

"It is imperative that there begins, today, a campaign among world Jewry to explain the full extent of the Arab hatred and danger. The complete truth must be told to the masses of good Jews both to justify the need to remove the Arabs and to expose the dangers of the liberal Establishment bloc."
- They Must Go!

The strength of the State of Israel is that it is a democratic secular Jewish State

Israel is an evil oligarchy, as Forbes magazine and others have exposed. The treacherous Israeli oligarchy has a weakness for German-Jesuit dictates and doesn't care if it sacrifices individuals (Yitzhak Rabin) or the whole nation to please their masters (who will dump them).

We go out into the world as men and keep our Jewishness in our hearts and our thrice daily prayers.

The Temple Mount isn't in Jewish hands because it's not in Jewish hearts. Actions speak louder than words, and those who merely pray and fail to act upon their faith are hypocrites whose prayers are rejected. Jews must demand their religious rights upon the Temple Mount and put prayers into practice. And since when does a "left winger" (as you profess to be) pray three times daily?

Any divisions in the Jewish people are largely artificial - the result of crazy fanatics like the fundamentalist bastard who thought that G-d gave him the right to kill a wonderful mensch and patriot like General Yitzak Rabin

THE BIG LIE. Although the stooge Yigal Amir was goaded by Avishai Raviv, a documented Israeli government agent provocateur, those who have studied the Kempler video of the staged assassination know he fired, as Israeli security shouted for the world to hear, blanks! And it's also documented Yigal Amir didn't have a single speck of gunpowder residue on his hands, etc. Read Barry Chamish's indicting book, Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin? for greater details, or any of the four or more books on the subject by others who come to the same conclusion: Shimon Peres came to power over Rabin's dead body.

- as your Jesus, David, probably told you to kill the Arabs on the Temple Mount.

Yeshua loves the Arabs enough He will welcome them in the House of Prayer for All Peoples when He reigns as King of the Jews, the King of Israel.

A month before Shabak murdered Rabin (on purpose or by woeful neglect), I attempted to pray upon the Temple Mount - not slay - and read my Bible in peace and was disturbed by the barking of Muslim dogs. Israel loudly professes to guarantee "freedom of access" to places of worship, yet Israeli authorities look the other way as Muslims trample the religious rights of Christians and Jews upon the Temple Mount daily.

Why do you aid and abet Muslim discrimination against Christians and Jews? Why do you despise the holy land of Israel that you would surrender it to sworn enemies without a fight? Why do you hate those who love Israel? Regardless, the mosques will soon be history, the Third Temple will be built, and King Messiah will liberate Jerusalem from Gentile occupation.
