At least 200 potential terrorists are actively planning suicide attacks while living freely in Britain, British intelligence chiefs have warned ministers. The figures are contained within a secret government report on the "enduring terrorist threat" facing Britain from al-Qaeda and affiliated organizations.: "Egypt is not going toward democracy but toward Islamisation. It is the same in Turkey and in Gaza. It is just like what happened in Iran in 1979." - Eli Shaked, a former Israeli ambassador to Cairo
For me, Israelis were modern day Davids running rough-shod over the Philistine hordes. It wasn't just romanticism. It was fact. I was a year old when Israel sent the Arab invaders packing during the Yom Kippur War...
I was four when Israel carried out the stunningly audacious Operation Thunderbolt and rescued the 95 hostages at Entebbe. I wasn't yet 9 when an intrepid Israeli pilot riding his chariot through the sky took out Iraq's Osirik reactor. The world condemned the strike, but privately breathed a sigh of relief. Israel had established a paradigm where it wielded frightful deterrence.
Every kid I grew up with knew the morally constant rule: don't mess with the Israelis. That kind of deterrence had more than the mere real political force of military success behind it. It was driven by a sense of purpose and identity held dear by a nation that had risen miraculously from the ashes and resurrected a waking reality from a dream it had dreamt for eighteen centuries.
It was the moral force of a people who had pride in who they were and what they - through their Torah and traditions - stood for. Israelis were a proud people unafraid to demand their rights and to declare their worth - not the least of which was the high price of Jewish blood.
But at some point the force behind Israel's deterrence was lost. In the scandalous words of former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Israelis grew "tired of winning." What was so chilling was that Olmert, who was only speaking for a certain group, who is only representative of a trend of ennui that has struck deep among Israel's so-called power elite, didn't ken what he himself had told the world.
For Israel, winning isn't simply about success on the battle field against foes, who would not only drive us out, but slay us to a man. Its about the Jewish dream, and our sense of identity, purpose, and worth. Its about being sovereign and secure so that we may build a G-dly society and be a light unto nations...
And the Arabs know it. Releasing 1,000 terrorists, many with Jewish blood on their hands, to free one soldier whose duty was to go into harms way to protect his people is flatly unacceptable...
It sends the clear message to the terrorists we're no longer giants - that our children are theirs to kidnap and kill, and that our blood comes cheap. "People make peace with the strong. They don't make peace with the weak. They push the weak aside," Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said before Rosh Hashannah.
The deal reportedly brokered for Gilad Shalit's release is a sign of weakness stemming from moral bankruptcy - and an invitation to genocide.
I feel deeply for Gilad Shalit. He has suffered and lost years in the service of his nation. I see his parents and weep for them. But his suffering, and theirs, does not justify actions that will lead to more families suffering as they have, or worse, the deaths of the countrymen Gilad was honour bound to protect...
Hamas has portrayed the Shalit prisoner exchange as a victory, and has openly vowed to kidnap more Israelis in order to free more prisoners. Among those who will be released are terrorists who have committed murder. Deputy Prime Minister Moshe (Bogie) Yaalon slammed the decision, saying "Our experience has made clear to us the terrorists we are releasing today will murder tens and perhaps hundreds of Israelis tomorrow." Hamas did not agree to an Israeli request to abandon a policy of future IDF kidnappings as part of the prisoner-swap agreement with Israel.
Abu Obaida, spokesman for the armed wing of Hamas, Izzadin Kassam said that Schalit, who is set to be released as part of a prisoner exchange deal, "will not be the last solider kidnapped Hamas is also expecting the naval blockade of Gaza to lighten following the conclusion of the exchange. A Hamas official in Lebanon, Osama Hamdan, told Al Hayat that Israel was obligated to refrain from targeting any of the Palestinian prisoners as a part of the agreement.
Expansive Freedom Deal or Another Blackmail Cruelty
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu asked government to endorse deal with Hamas for bringing Gilad Shalit home within days although the price agreed is heavy: 1,027 jailed Palestinian terrorists, including 60 convicted for multiple murders.
Murder of More than 100 Jews on Release List
Among the murderers that will be released is Hussam Badran, former commander of Hamas in Samaria. He was responsible for massacres at the Tel Aviv Dolphinarium, Sbarro pizzeria in Jerusalem, Matza Restaurant in Haifa and the Park Hotel in Netanya. Badran has as much Jewish blood on his hands as some of the Nazi criminals who were put on trial after the Holocaust.
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
There are many genuine people around the world, who are still suffering from occupation by others: Kurds, Armenians, Tibetans, Chechens, Western Saharans, and Basques. So-called Palestinians, recently forged mix of people, are not one of them! In fact, they are true occupiers of Jewish land!

Egypt Defies Sinai Peace Terms
Cairo took two steps inimical to Israel . Egyptian Air Force Chief Gen. Reda Hafiz said to the official MENA news agency: "Sinai is our land and we do not need permission to increase our forces on our land" in direct contravention of the 1979 peace treaty signed with Israel which demilitarized Sinai by common consent. Furthermore, without waiting for Hamas to open the prison doors for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit after five years of captivity in the Gaza Strip, Cairo let his captors cash in on the prisoner exchange deal by providing the first Damascus-based Hamas leaders with a home in Cairo.
(Islamic Brotherhood is taking over in Egypt and intending to violate 1979 agreement! Israel must be ready to take control of the Sinai and implement the Sinai Option!)
In the two-day killing spree in September 1941, Nazi troops gunned down more than 33,000 Jews and buried them in mounds of dirt at the Babi Yar ravine outside Kiev, Ukraine - then part of the Soviet Union .
(This and other acts of genocide against Jews were only possible due to eager cooperation of local population - be it Ukrainians, Polacks, Lithuanians... - with Nazi occupiers. Now the international anti-Semites cooperate on the state level, like they were before WW2, with Islamic enemies of Israel!)
Colombia Rebuffed Abbas
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos rebuffed Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas who had travelled to Bogota to secure support of his unilateral statehood bid at the United Nations. Colombia is a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, where Abbas needs at least nine votes out of 15 - including positive recommendations from all five permanent members.
'Ugly Nazi' at Its Best
The UN human rights office called for Israel to stop Jewish settlers from attacking Palestinian civilians in the West Bank, accusing the army of failing to restrain settlers while being quick to use force against Palestinians. Israeli diplomats expressed surprise at the statement, saying it was released without warning and made no mention of violence directed at settlers.
(How many calls has this Israel-hating organisation issued in the past and so promptly to stop Arab terror attacks against Jews?)
No International Outcry Against Arabs' Terror
A Molotov cocktail was thrown at a synagogue in Jaffa during protest by Arabs. The projectile struck the roof of the Rabbi Meir synagogue in the city.
Arabs, scrawled "death to Jews" on four synagogues in Tzfat (Safed), the latest desecration of holy sites that has plagued Israel in recent weeks. Tzfat's Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu expected Muslim clerics to denounce the desecration and hate messages, but no condemnation has been issued as of yet.
(No instant international condemnation and there are no even news reports!)

Steven Shamrak born in the Soviet Union and now lives in Melbourne Australia. He is a qualified civil engineer and software specialist, and was an active participant in the nascent Moscow Zionist movement before he arrived in Australia 25 years ago. Believing that "a sense of pride, nationhood and connection to all Jewish land" is missing from Jewish hearts, he spends his spare time educating Jews and non-Jews about Jewish history in the Middle East. He worked as a construction engineer at the Moscow Olympic Games project and as a computer consultant in Australia. For several years he has been publishing an Internet editorial letter about the Arab-Israel conflict since August 2001.
Dear Friends, this independent editorial has been published since 2001. It is not sponsored by or affiliated with any government or political party. The aim is to present Jewish point of view on Arab-Israel conflict, propagates and motivates Jewish people and our true friends to uphold ideals and inspirations of true Zionism - Jewish National independence movement.
The Jews had no choice but to agree and the Palestine Mandate was signed in 1922. This territory amounted to 78% of what was promised to the Jews and it ultimately became Jordan. The deletion of the east bank became permanent contrary to Article 5 which prohibited any removal of land from the Mandate
The Trump administration will not be satisfied with verbal statements by Palestinian leaders condemning acts of terror, but insists on aggressive practical steps: Palestinian media must stop broadcasting anti-Israel materials, Palestinian school curricula must be purged of hate Israel propaganda, and the PA must give up naming streets and squares after dead terrorists, thereby treating them as martyrs to a holy cause.
The kids used to turn up repeatedly throughout the day just to look at the foreigner, touch him, feel the hair on his (the monkey’s) arms and generally just gawk. China has changed a lot over the years but there have been times when a foreigner in a small town or village would attract huge crowds. Sometimes people would be known to suddenly come upon you, look up at your face and just plain scream! I’m not joking!
Many there are who delight in bringin shame to their country and heritage, and all in the name of some blessed cause or other, but when there be no difference at all between their words and behavior and those of our worst enemies, how be it that such folk can think of themselves as ‘decent, patriotic or right-minded’?
Unfortunately, the West does not know what every Muslim scholar knows; that the worst enemies of Islam are from within. The worst of these are the khawaarij who delude others by the deeply dyed religious exterior that they project. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said about them, “When you see them pray you will consider your own prayers insignificant. They recite the Quran but it does not exceed the limits of their throat.” In other words, they don’t understand the true meanings
Below is a one minute 43 second youtube video featuring Muslim Human Rights Activist Raheel Raza from the Clarion Project, in which she says of Donald Trump that though he is politically incorrect, he won the election ‘with a mandate among other things to call radical Islam what it is’ and she invites people to stop being politically correct and begin talking about radical Islam.

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
