Islamic Deception: Fundamentalist Deceit: Lies in Palestine: Hamas: Fatah: Israel Terror: On this last point some may care to argue, but as recently as today, Hamas have declared their commitment to the destruction of Israel, and to date Arafat's political heir has shown he has no power to prevent it; or worse, is playing a game in which he pretends to be unable to stop the terrorists. I am also one of those people who constantly criticises 'The Palestinian Cause', for I see this title as a misnomer. That cause has nothing to do with ordinary Palestinians, and everything to do with the power mongers ruling them.

Although written many years ago, the sentiments expressed here remain currentI am one of many people on the internet who constantly go on about the 'Politically motivated Islamic Fundamentalist' Terrorists. I am always careful to precisely describe the target of my disgust. My target is always the Muslim, who is Politically motivated, along a sectarian fundamentalist line, that seeks to 'impose' his sectarian beliefs on the world.
As such, these people are no different to the Christian Crusaders, Various nationalities of Communists, and the arch demon himself, Adolf Hitler. Their desire is to rule, under the guise of their 'sacrosanct' belief system.
I am also one of those people who constantly criticises 'The Palestinian Cause', for I see this title as a misnomer. That cause has nothing to do with ordinary Palestinians, and everything to do with the power mongers ruling them. If the Palestinian leaders actually cared about the people, there would be less money in private (leadership) bank accounts and more 'living condition' improvement on the ground. Don't waste your breath talking to me about that being the fault of 'Israeli Occupation'.
The recent cries of 'Victory' coming from the Palestinians, over the exit from Gaza is just one example of plain old BS at its best, and it seems to have the full support of the media and those bloody minded and bleeding heart libertarians.
First fact of the day, is that the 'occupied territories', were not in any way stolen from the Palestinians but kept as booty by the Victims of a war of outright aggression. That is right. The Israelis were the Victims, The Arabs were the Aggressors, and the common Palestinian has been made the 'victim'.
Second fact is, that Arafat years ago refused to accept back the territories (97% at least), because of his hatred for Israel, and it suited his purposes for the Palestinians to be seen as victims and martyrs.
Third fact is, that in the eyes of the Arab Leadership, All of Israel is occupied territory. There will be no peace until one or other of the two sides is destroyed.
On this last point some may care to argue, but as recently as today, Hamas have declared their commitment to the destruction of Israel, and to date Arafat's political heir has shown he has no power to prevent it; or worse, is playing a game in which he pretends to be unable to stop the terrorists.
In the eyes of those belonging to this and that 'ism' who call themselves this or that 'ist', I am undoubtedly a racist and oppressor of the defenseless. I am anything but!
With all of the foregoing having been said, I know want to draw your attention to some issues about Islam, of which you may be unaware. I draw your attention to an article entitled: Four Years After September 11th: The Media Failure by Stephen Schwartz (himself a Muslim), in which he clarifies some issues for those among us who cannot tell the difference between Orthodox Muslims, and the Politically Motivated Fundamentalist Terrorists.
He points out that "in the current debate over the Iraqi constitution, it has repeatedly been stated with horror and condemnation in the West that the new national charter embodies the principle that Islam is a source of law, and that lawmaking shall not contradict the principles of Islam".
For many Westerners who are 'generally' ignorant of Islam, the idea of building a new Iraq upon Islamic law brings up visions of oppression and dictators. Mr. Schwartz goes on to dismiss this view, stating that all Muslims are required to obey local laws that do not contradict Islam, and points out that "Indeed, when it is said that law must not conflict with Islam, it is rather difficult to imagine what laws would do so." He makes it clear that a state policy that contradicts Islam is one that would silence the call to prayer, and prevents the teaching and preaching of the religion, and indicates that neither Israel nor the United States of America give reason to any Muslim for disobeying the Government and its' laws.
Mr. Schwartz makes it plain that it is true, that there are some groups who see themselves as the saviours of the world and have preached that Muslims living in non-Muslim lands cannot and should not obey non-Muslim authorities or participate in non-Muslim politics. Nevertheless, he proceeds to give us insight into the 'normative' Islamic viewpoint.
"But the Iraqi Ayatollah Ali Sistani, the Shia marja of the time, holds to the exactly opposite view, which is that of mainstream Sunnism as well: Muslims migrating to non-Muslim countries, if they have signed as minor a document as an immigration form, have given an Islamic oath to obey local laws that do not directly contravene Islam (as described above) and to live at peace with their neighbors. Muslims who cannot execute such an oath in good faith should not migrate to a non-Muslim country, according to Sistani and others".
The gist of Mr. Schwartz article is that much of what is reported in the press about Islam, is at best, ignorance, and at worst, propaganda. As he puts it: "I could continue with a list of the lacuna about Islam found in Western media, but the experience would be depressing. What are the reasons for this problem? First, Western media are not engaged in "covering Islam," Rather, they are engaged in reporting on events that happen to involve Islam. There is an obvious difference. Second, reporters are "first responders.....Third, when they need expertise and analysis Western media often turn to academics and governmental experts whose knowledge of Islam is distorted or limited....Fourth, Western education for the past hundred and fifty years has concentrated on the gap between the two worlds rather than study of the real elements they have in common.
I would heartily recommend that you take at look at Mr. Schwartz' article, and become informed.
The UNHRC's resolution effectively delegitimized Israel's right to exist by denying that it has a right to defend its territory and its people from illegal aggression carried out by an illegal terrorist organization.
Mohamed ElBaradei, the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency's virulently anti-Israel chairman, announced a deal has been reached between Iran and the US, Russia and France regarding Iran's nuclear program.
But now that the administration has agreed to an accord that effectively transforms America into a facilitator of Iran's nuclear weapons program, the time has come for Israel to start voicing its objections.
"The Patriarchs' Route" in Gush Etzion also passes through an area known as Netzer, located between the Elazar and Alon Shvut communities. The Netzer area is built on terraces that assemble a spectacularly beautiful, green mosaic; green grapes twining alongside old olive trees in plots of varying shapes and sizes, and in the pre-Spring season the Netzer space looks like a Claude Monet masterpiece: the green background is spotted with the pink and white of the almond trees at the peak of their bloom. But this pastoral bubble bursts the moment we 'zoom-in' on the photo, then we discover a real battle for this land and the future of the country, with the innocent plants often standing like soldiers on the frontline.
A key portion of the meeting was White House Domestic Policy Council (DPC) Director Cecilia Munoz outlining President Obama's overall immigration reform proposal that includes creating a pathway to citizenship for up to 11-million illegal aliens. In my discussion with the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Public Safety and Border Security, I mentioned that a potential "State of State Emergency" might be unfolding, and deliberate steps might have to be taken by the State of Arizona to protect its' own sovereignty and welfare."
When we arrived, we noted that this place really was a resort centre. It had wave pools and other interesting things for people to enjoy, and even accommodated school tour groups with dormitory style accomodation. Opposite the breakfast room was a swimming complex, in the front of which was a very interesting sign. Unfortunately, I had forgotten to bring my .38 Smith and Wesson. When we went in for breakfast, we saw that the next room was set up for a wedding, and discovered that it was 'our' wedding reception. Taking a 'sticky beak', I noted that there were no knives on any of the tables. 'Ahah! Thank God I brought that solid clear plastic knife with me!'.. The whole time before and after the actual church service, the local beggars were inside the church hitting everyone for money. Oh the guilt of refusing a pittance for the poor in the house of God, but I was advised to give no one anything, for that would be more effective than the 'last trump' for the dead. All the beggars would arrive. Not that this mattered at all. Who was carrying money?
A Male Steward came off the plane and walked over to me and said: "It's alright! We aren't going to leave without you! Calm down! Catch your breath!" The 'So and So' was right. It was still another 30 minutes before we took off! I on the other hand was watching the driver through his rear view mirror. He seemed to be blinking an awful lot and his driving was a little erratic. Not that that is unusual in China, but when you are on the highway and you have 3 or 4 lanes to choose from and very little traffic, you would think that you could drive in at least one or two of those lanes for more than 500 meters at a time.
Anyway, I was not the kind of child that hung around and did nothing. I had to have my own adventures and make discoveries of this new place we were to call our home away from home. There was a huge Combined British Military Hospital and a Family Hospital attached to it. At first I avoided the Military Hospital, because the nurses and the orderlies who saw me loitering around might question me and then report this to my father who was the officer in charge.
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]
About the KingsCalendar Publisher
R.P.BenDedek is the owner and Editor of KingsCalendar.com which was originally set up 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.

Academic Deception: History Lies: Challenging the Math that Biased (Anti-Biblical) Historians use to demonstrate the Length of King Nebuchadrezzar's Reign. Nothing in this article actually contradicts the Egyptian, Assyrian or Babylonian Records of events that transpired during the period from 609 BCE to 562 BCE. This article does not in any way dispute the Archaeological Evidence.
Assyria, Babylon, 7th Century BCE: Josiah: Nebuchadrezzar: Concealed within the Biblical Texts are difficulties that go unnoticed when one in ignorance accepts the word of historians, as to the timing of the actual event, for in fact, there is absolutely no evidence to support the historical contention that King Josiah died in 609 BCE in what historians insist was an incident related to The Battle for Haran, in the 17th year of Nabopolassar. A cursory reading of Thiele (1966, preface - p.10), and Wiseman (1985, p.33), will offer some understanding of the lengths to which academics go, (and to which they will disagree), in order to understand and solve complex issues involved.
LXX and MSS Bible Texts: Septuagint, Masorete, Bible Dates: Because the academic world cannot understand Biblical chronology, they assume that the fault lies with the record. If the Biblical information is no longer correct, then modern Academics demonstrate a highly unscientific approach to history, when they quote Scripture to support various archaeological and Historical propositions. When they do this, they are quite clearly 'manipulating' the public". The earliest, and best known, source for the story of the Septuagint is the Letter of Aristeas, a lengthy document that recalls how Ptolemy (Philadelphus II [285?47 BCE]), desiring to augment his library in Alexandria, Egypt, commissioned a translation of the Hebrew Scriptures into Greek.
