Trans-Jordan was part of the Palestinian mandate, which was allocated for creation of a Jewish state by the League of Nations in 1922, in accordance with the Balfour Declaration. Therefore, its separation from Palestinian mandated land was an illegal act. Unfortunately, the dominant imperial powers, Britain and France, controlled the League of Nations which they used to rubber stamp their shady deals at the time. As a result of the deal, in 1922, in order to secure Britain 's financial interests in the Suez Canal, Sinai was given to Egypt by the British with the permission of King Hussein of Hejaz and Nejd, now Saudi Arabia. Jews were not asked! In return, Britain transferred control of the land east of the river Jordan to Hussein's son, Abdullah. Control of the Golan Heights was transferred to the French-run Syrian Mandate and in exchange the United Kingdom got control of the newly discovered oil fields in Kirkuk.

Israel is now officially a strategic partner of the United States , a classification held by no other nation, according to a bill signed into law by US President Barack Obama. The United States-Israel Strategic Partnership Act of 2014 took more than a year to draft in Congress, and became an omnibus bill for the US-Israel relationship, reinforcing cooperation across industries with a focus on defense. Signing the law, the president hailed its bipartisan support and said it "reflects the importance placed by my administration on strengthening and deepening US-Israel bilateral cooperation and ties."
"It reinforces critical defense and security programs, which have reached an unprecedented level under my administration," Obama said. "It also lays the groundwork for increased trade and cooperation across a range of cutting-edge fields, including energy, water, agriculture and technology."
Recommitting the US to maintaining Israel's "qualitative military edge" over its neighbors in the Middle East, the act expands authority for the forward deployment of US-made weapons stockpiles in Israeli conflicts.
It is the policy of the United States, the bill reads, "to reaffirm the unwavering support of the people and the government of the United States for the security of Israel as a Jewish state."
(Why did it take so long to state the obvious? It looks like president Obama, after many years of anti-Israel policy, at the end of his tender is trying to write his name in history books. First, he 'normalized' relationship with Cuba , but has not really welcomed Israel as a strategic partner. Obama has reserved the right to interpret!)
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
Islamists and many Muslims in general are trying to justify their violence and hate toward infidels by the injustice they suffered from Christian Crusaders and Western powers. Just imagine how much terror Jews should unleash on Christians and Muslims for the millennia of continuous discrimination and genocide Jews have been suffering from at the hands of righteous devotees of both 'love' professing religions!
Abbas Blackmails the 'Ugly Nothing'
Mahmoud Abbas threatened to sever all ties with Israel if the statehood resolution presented to the UN Security Council did not receive approval. Abbas said the Palestinians were "determined to restore their rights, including the right of return for refugees and the release of all Palestinians (terrorist) from Israeli prison." "If we fail, we will halt all dealings with the Israeli government and ask it to assume its responsibilities as an occupation state," he said.
(Good, it will allow Israel to end the Arab occupation of the Jewish land by removing them from Judea, Samaria and Gaza!)

Prominent French journalist Eric Zemmour is being barred by a news channel for saying Muslims elbowing French people out of the suburbs. The iTELE channel said that Zemmour would not be invited back to a chat show he has been appearing in since 2003 following an outcry over his latest remarks.
(At the same time a man attacked police, yelling 'Allahu Akbar' in suburb of Tours, France . The pro-Islamic policy of European countries is based on anti-Semitism, not on love for Muslims!)

The Palestinian draft resolution demanding Israel to withdraw from the West Bank and East Jerusalem will be brought to a vote at the UN Security Council by the end of 2014, PLO official Saeb Erekat told Russian media - but it is rejected by some Palestinian factions, including Hamas.

Two months after donors pledged $5.4 billion to help rebuild Gaza after the war between Israel and Hamas only 2%, $100 million or so, has been received according to UN and other officials. The conference in Cairo had been hailed as a (anti-Israel) success, with Qatar promising $1 billion, Saudi Arabia $500 million and the United States and the European Union a combined $780 million in various forms of assistance.
Hypocrisy of French War on Terror
French prosecutors announce the rampage of a driver who injured 13 people in Dijon was not a terrorist attack. The incident occurred when a driver, yelling "Allahu Akbar," ploughed into dozens of pedestrians in the eastern French city of Dijon a week ago, some 300 miles from Paris.
(Just because the perpetrator was in a psychiatric hospital it does not diminish his intent!)
Quote of the Week:
"Western politicians and journalists have adopted the Arab narrative, which portrays Israel as the cause of its conflicts and its creation as a kind of original sin. Needless to say, the only acceptable 'cure' is to slice up and emasculate Israel so that it can more easily be gobbled up. It's easy to say that they are bribed and blackmailed by our enemies, afraid of or pandering to their Muslim populations, or indoctrinated by left-wing academics." - Vic Rosenthal
They ignore the reality of the core reason of current Islamic terror - hate for "infidels"! The main reason for the overwhelming Western governments support for the fake Arab state, Palestine , and demise of the Jewish state is not oil, but deeply ingrained anti-Semitic attitude!
Sinai Option - The Road to Peace!
by Steven Shamrak.
It is not enough to rebuke enemies - Israel must have a clear plan of action in order to reunite all Jewish land and stop anti-Jewish international hypocrisy! Do you know any other way that has not been tried?
Only 120 years ago, most parts of the Middle East, including Palestine and the entire Sinai Peninsula , were a desolate, arid, land mass which did not belong to any country. It was a no man's land with which for 2000 years Jews had an unbroken spiritual and historical bond!
The creation of a Mandate system after the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in World War 1 and in the grip of the new masters, Britain and France, laid the foundations of the current Arab-Israel conflict:
Trans-Jordan was part of the Palestinian mandate, which was allocated for creation of a Jewish state by the League of Nations in 1922, in accordance with the Balfour Declaration. Therefore, its separation from Palestinian mandated land was an illegal act. Unfortunately, the dominant imperial powers, Britain and France, controlled the League of Nations which they used to rubber stamp their shady deals at the time.
As a result of the deal, in 1922, in order to secure Britain 's financial interests in the Suez Canal, Sinai was given to Egypt by the British with the permission of King Hussein of Hejaz and Nejd, now Saudi Arabia. Jews were not asked! In return, Britain transferred control of the land east of the river Jordan to Hussein's son, Abdullah. Control of the Golan Heights was transferred to the French-run Syrian Mandate and in exchange the United Kingdom got control of the newly discovered oil fields in Kirkuk.
Since its independence, Israel has fought many wars with its implacable Arab neighbours, signed numerous cease-fires, so-called Hudnas and even peace agreements. But all those efforts have not brought about any permanent solution to the endless terror Israeli society has been enduring daily.
The solution that can bring permanent peace to Israel and let Arabs live with dignity in their own country was proposed over 100 years ago. It has been deliberately ignored and disallowed by the United Nations.
It is the Sinai option - the transfer of all of the Arab population from the land that used to be called the "Palestinian mandate" to the Sinai Peninsula , an area of contiguous land which is comparable in size with the entire Palestinian mandate: Israel, Gaza, Judea , Samaria, the Golan Heights and Jordan! This plan presents a real opportunity for a permanent peace:
1. It will separate the two entirely incompatible communities and will create an environment conducive to the development of a new Arab entity totally independent from Israel.
2. It will provide the Arabs with a contiguous landmass. Isn't that what the PA is demanding?
3. It will give the Arabs full territorial, financial, military, political and religious control over the land, natural resources and population. There will be no dependency on Israel!
4. The new entity will be accountable for its actions in accordance with international law.
5. Israel will be able to securely control its border with the new Arab entity and keep it accountable for any terror activity.
6. All anti-Israel terror-inclined elements will be removed from the Jewish lands.
And, this plan is relatively easy to implement because:
1. The new entity can be either part of Egypt or become another independent Arab state.
2. There are only around 250,000 people living in Sinai today, predominantly Bedouins.
3. The SINAI OPTION will resolve the so-called Palestinians refugee question as they can easily be settled in the Sinai. Note: Over 70% of Jordan's population is so-called Palestinians; others are descendents of the refuges from Saudi Arabia .
4. Every year the International community has been wasting/spending billions of dollars merely on conflict maintenance in the region. The SINAI OPTION offers the opportunity for investment in the permanent resolution of the conflict and it will free up billions of dollars that can be used to alleviate the suffering of people the world over.
5. Population transfers were successfully implemented before and after the adoption of the fourth Geneva Convention resolution. In fact, Israel is the only country this resolution targeted in order to prevent the transfer of the Arab population from Israel after the war of Independence!
6. It will create investment opportunities and would be of great benefit to Egypt as well a financial bonanza for the Arabs who are currently living in Judea-Samaria, Gaza and Jordan.
7. It will improve the lifestyle and living conditions of millions of Arabs and will bring peace, stability and prosperity to Jews in Israel.
8. The plan can be implemented humanely and gradually under the supervision of the International community or it can be implemented by force, unilaterally by Israel , when the Arab enemies of the Jewish state start the next war or perpetrate a hideous act of terror against the Israeli population. Israel must be ready to implement the SINAI OPTION at any time!
This is the only way toward permanent peace in the region and the fulfilment of the 2000 year old commandment and inspiration of the Jewish people - the return to the G-d given land of our ancestors!
The International community, Arab and Muslim countries insist that they want peace in the Middle East ! Therefore, why don't they even want to hear about this alternative plan? And the fact that during the breakout through the Sinai border with Egypt, instigated and planned in advance by Hamas, half of Gaza's population were able to cross the border during the first two days is a proof that the Sinai Option is easy to implement and a practical way to start the process of ending Arab occupation of Jewish land and establishing a true and permanent peace in Israel, free of Arab terror.
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.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel remained committed to treating war wounded from Syria. Israel has treated more than 3,000 war wounded from Syria in what it describes as a humanitarian gesture. In defiance of the United States, which is demanding that the Palestinian Authority completely stop financial rewards to families of terrorist “Martyrs” (Shahids), the PA is now raising the payments to the “Martyrs’” families.
Israel unveiled the latest addition to its multilevel missile defense system with David’s Sling. The two-stage radar and electro-optic guided system’s range is three times that of Iron Dome. The system is designed to shoot down incoming rockets with ranges of 25 to 190 miles (40-300 kilometers), targeting mostly the missiles that were fired by the Lebanese Hezbollah organization toward Israel in recent years.
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
Disciplining yourself to pay attention to the actual words used and the actual meaning of the sentence is very important, especially so since so much of what purports to be news is little more than the writer’s opinion about the facts of the news. Unfortunately, people easily succumb to emotive language such as ‘Donald Trump demonstrates his stupidity again!’ Such a headline is designed to reinforce in the minds of those who don’t like Trump, that he is an idiot. Another thing of which to be careful when reading is the inclination to ‘interpret’ what we read within the context of our religious, cultural and political worldviews.
When you stand to speak you are doing more than reciting words. You are in fact engaged in communicating with an audience your opinions, ideas, feelings, passions and/or knowledge on a subject. They expect you to express yourself with feeling and passion and to actually know what you are talking about. Therefore it is essential that you KNOW what you are talking about – and – show the appropriate body language, gestures, actions and emotions associated with your topic.
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’?

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]
