"We chose the junction called the 'knee junction,' about two hundred meters from the village of Artas, from which many rioters have come. They adopt two methods against us. One is throwing stones and boulders, again and again, at Jewish vehicles that pass along the road, and the second method is setting tires on fire at night and rolling them down from the nearby hill at passing vehicles."
Wave of Arab stoning terror on the roads of Judea and Samaria
Dozens of residents arrived at the junction to the north of Efrat in Gush Etzion for a show of civilian presence, protesting against the weakness in the face of the wave of Arab stoning terror that strikes on the roads in the area. "If those giving the orders won't wake up, we will return for similar events in the future," the organizers promised.
Dozens of residents of Efrat in Gush Etzion and Women in Green activists came in the late afternoon yesterday (April 10) for a show of civilian presence close to the northern entrance to Efrat. This followed the increasing wave of Arab stoning terror on the roads of Judea and Samaria, and especially on the roads of Gush Etzion, and in light of the lack of a deterrent response by the security forces.
A. a resident of Efrat and one of the initiators of the event, explains that the location where the activists situated themselves was chosen followed a lengthy, and continual, series of serious events that have happened in the area. "We chose the junction called the 'knee junction,' about two hundred meters from the village of Artas, from which many rioters have come. They adopt two methods against us. One is throwing stones and boulders, again and again, at Jewish vehicles that pass along the road, and the second method is setting tires on fire at night and rolling them down from the nearby hill at passing vehicles."
He adds that the road outlaws take advantage of the barriers that the army placed close to the Arab village, to throw boulders and stones over them onto the road, while hiding behind the barriers and disappearing behind them.
A. tells of the moment when the idea was born to come out for a show of civilian presence on the road: "About two weeks ago, my son was driving here late at night, and he found himself in an ambush of stones and boulders. He called me and said that they're throwing stones at him. I told him to hide or flee. In the end, he came out of it without being harmed physically, but the windows were shattered and the metal suffered hits as well. Here too, as in other instances, until the army came the outlaws fled behind the walls, and orders to set out in pursuit were not received. Our great soldiers want to take action, but they cannot. Following that occurrence, I talked with Nadia Matar, we thought about what could be done to halt the phenomenon, and we decided to initiate the civilian presence protest."
A. further relates that he, like the dozens of residents and supporters who came to the show of presence last evening, hope "that someone in a high position will wake up and give the necessary orders." Along with this, he adds, "if this doesn't happen, and the lawlessness continues on the roads, last night's event will be the first in a string of events. There will be more events like this one, and additional events. We will think how to be creative, we will take the initiative, and we will act until we awaken those in high positions."
The show of civilian presence began last evening with the Minhah prayer, immediately following which Rabbi Shlomo Kimchi gave a lecture to those present entitled "From Holocaust to Revival," drawing a direct connection to Memorial Day and Yom ha-Atzmaut (Israel Independence Day) that fall now. After the lecture and the Maariv prayer, those present burst out singing and dancing, with the area secured by the additional IDF troops who arrived on the scene. "Suddenly, there are troops, suddenly, two jeeps arrive, suddenly, they know their work," A. says.
Among the participants were several residents who had fallen victim to the stone throwing at the spot, including Noa, a midwife who lives in Efrat, who told of the personal trauma and sense of powerlessness that accompanies the victims of stoning terror.
Nadia Matar, one of the heads of Women in Green and one of the event's organizers, also spoke. She said: "The throwing of stones by the Arabs is not only dangerous and causes physical injury, it harms the Jewish and national honor of us all. The goal of the Arabs is not only to murder the specific driver at whom they throw their rocks, they want to sow fear among all the Jews, in the attempt to drive us away from the roads, and from Eretz Israel as a whole. The army's response must provide a deterrent. Unfortunately, in recent years the IDF cannot deter, because its hands are tied. We send from here our blessings for success to the new Defense Minister, Mr. Bugi Yaalon, and hope that he will quickly change the orders for opening fire, so that the Arab who throws a stone will be deemed a terrorist in every sense of the word."
Matar added: "The response by civilians must be that of a people who behaves as a free and sovereign people in its land. Accordingly, we have come here in a show of Jewish presence to say: This is our land, here we will go about everywhere, without fear or fright. We will make clear to the Arabs that 'two states for two peoples' is no longer on the table, and that now the time has come to advance the issue of the application of sovereignty over all Israel."
The participants dispersed after about an hour and a half, following the summation, to be ready for a "telephone call-up" if it is decided to man civilian patrols on the roads.
It should be noted that a security official who was present at the event spoke with one of the organizers and expressed his agreement and support for the move and for the messages delivered in it. The official wished to support the residents, and endorsed the statements about the need to make changes in the orders for opening fire. "The soldiers are often frustrated. They want to act, but the orders do not allow this. It is forbidden to fire at a terrorist who throws stones, and as for those who throw firebombs, shooting is permitted only if the terrorist is identified while igniting the firebomb. In this way, it is impossible to deter or to obtain quiet," he said.
These days, final preparations are being made for the fourth Sovereignty Conference, which will be held on Sunday, the 16th of Tevet, February 12th, in conjunction with the periodical Basheva (and will be broadcast live on Arutz 7). In this conference as well, in which ministers, members of Knesset and public figures will take part, the various ideas of how to promote sovereignty will be presented. However, in contrast to previous conferences, in this conference, Matar and Katsover intend to outline a plan that will offer a first response to the challenges of sovereignty.
Palestinian leaders preach nonstop hatred of Jews and continually incite murderous violence against them. Palestinian schools teach children of every age that suicide martyrdom must be their highest goal. These attitudes are deeply ingrained in their culture, and getting their own state won’t change them. In fact, any Palestinian state would almost certainly be taken over by Hamas, whose charter explicitly calls for the death of all Jews everywhere.
The government of Israel has evacuated Amona – Does the Left or the world like us any better? Do they respect us more? Isn’t it better to apply the law in Judea and Samaria, to absorb exactly the same condemnations that we get in any case, but to do it to rescue the Land of Israel and Amona as part of it?
The point in providing these videos on behalf of the Clarion Project is to hopefully assist in getting the word out that the extreme liberal progressive ideology does not represent REALITY when dealing with the politically motivated fundamentalist Islamist plan.
Despite all the hysterical accusations made by the sociopathic ideologues, the reality is that REAL everyday Muslims who have left their homelands to settle in democracy loving western lands DON’T WANT to be controlled by Islamists. They more than anyone else know what living under Islamic (theocratic) political and social control means.
Politically Correct Ideologues are people who become so trapped inside fundamentalist thinking, that they lose contact with the real world and see nothing other than their ideology. In short, they are totally focussed on what is inside their own heads, which is why I constantly refer to such people as ‘sociopathic.’
In China, the rights of society take precedence over individual human rights. This, we Westerners call totalitarianism and from an ideological perspective, desire to destroy it right? But ask yourself this: “What does MY country promote?”
There is no doubt that the immediacy of Trump’s order has caused inconvenience for many people, like the one I read about today of an Australian woman who arrived in the US only to be told that she had to leave because of her unacceptable dual citizenship. And I quote the illusion of truth:
Right now you are probably asking, ‘What the heck is the Seder Olam Rabbah?’ So here is a little information gleaned from a variety of online sources. Seder Olam Rabbah is Jewish literature of second century A.D. dated to about 160 AD. and first printed in 1514. It is a Midrashic chronological work generally regarded as a work of the tanna Jose b. Halafta. [The “tannaim” were the masters of the “oral law,” i.e. the men who wrote the Talmud.]

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]
