Yet another Obama administration thrust in its campaign to stigmatize Binyamin Netanyahu and Israel came on Tuesday, March 24, as a pejorative leak to The Wall Street Journal, which reported: "Israeli intelligence was eavesdropping on closed-door nuclear negotiations between Iran and the US, then passing the classified information along to the US Congress."
However, the US officials being quoted conceded that Israel may have obtained information on the nuclear negotiations not by targeting US officials directly but by sweeping up their conversations with other parties targeted for surveillance, such as Iranian officials.
(Even if it is true, what is wrong with informing the US Congress about traitorous intentions of the president? The nuclear negotiations between Iran are vital for the existence of the Jewish state and Israel has the right to obtain information about it by any means, especially when Obama is withholding and lying about it!)
The Wall Street Journal also reported: "The White House discovered the operation, in fact, when US intelligence agencies spying on Israel intercepted communications among Israeli officials that carried details the US believed could have come only from access to the confidential talks, officials briefed on the matter said." The Journal article reported that as secret talks with Iran progressed into 2013, US intelligence agencies "monitored Israel's communications to see if the country knew of the negotiations." "Mr. Obama didn't tell Mr. Netanyahu until September 2013."
(Has anyone looked closely at the spy headquarters, sorry US embassy, in Tel Aviv?)
Members of Congress were both surprised by and dismissive of a Wall Street Journal story that the Israeli government spied on the US . More than a half-dozen lawmakers in both parties and chambers denied receiving such briefings from Israel . Some Republicans maintained that they have had to rely on other countries for information, suggesting it was the White House's own fault if their failure to brief lawmakers had them turning to leaks from foreign governments. Congress has repeatedly complained about not receiving adequate information from the administration on Iran .
(It is not a secret that the US has been spying on Israel and has never apologized for it. Therefore, Israel has not just the rights but the obligation, considering the history of the US government attitude toward the Jewish state, to look after its own security and gather information about the enemies and intentions of back-stabbing 'friends'!)
Conclusion: Obama is not interested in normalizing relationship with Israel!
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas used the platform of the Arab League summit in Sharm el-Shekh, Egypt, this Saturday to attack his 'unity partner' Hamas, making a subtle call for the Arab states to take military action against the Gaza-based Muslim Brotherhood offshoot. Abbas's adviser on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash, made similar remarks Just two days earlier.
(Hamas and the PA signed a unity deal last April. They hate each other even more than Israel. Israel has nobody to negotiate peace with!)
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
In recent times, when the Zionist block wins an Israeli election, the 'Israel-friendly' press hysterically writes "Right-wing coalition under Netanyahu could isolate Israel and increase tensions with Palestinians". They never write and warn Israeli voters that "Left-wing coalition will betray aspiration of the Jewish people and the security of Israel"! The truth is, that even since before independence, Israel was blockaded and has always been isolated by anti-Semitic bigots, some pretending to be friends, who only have used the Jewish state when it suited them!
'Fifth Column' Met with the Enemy
Joint Arab List head Ayman Odeh, MKs Jamal Zahalka, Masud Gnaim, and newly elected MK Saadia Osama met with PA President Mahmoud Abbas, who praised them for their achievement in the elections. In response, Likud MK Danny Danon said, "Joint List members haven't sworn allegiance to the Knesset yet and are already running to their political patron, Abbas."
A secret Iranian military handbook, American officials say, confirms that the Islamic Republic of Iran is including in its arsenal a plan to launch a nuclear electromagnetic pulse attack on the American national grid system. As long ago as 2005 intelligence sources were quoted, saying, "Iran is not only covertly developing nuclear weapons, it is already testing ballistic missiles specifically designed to destroy America's technical infrastructure, effectively neutralizing the world's lone superpower."
PA Must Pay Compensation to Israel
Protective Edge, the 50-day summer war between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, caused a 3.5 billion shekels loss, estimated at 0.35 to 0.5 percent of Israel's GDP.
Out of nine official documents produced from the UN's annual Commission on the Status of Women report, only one of the UN's 193 members were mentioned in regards to ongoing infringement of women's rights - Israel - in what Jerusalem says in another case of UN bias. The resolution, sponsored by the PA and South Africa, was adopted by a vote of 27-2 with 13 abstentions. European Union members abstained.
Speaking beside Britain's own Foreign Secretary, Phillip Hammond, in Riyadh , Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal made comments critical of any potential deal concerning Iran's nuclear program, insisting that the Islamic Republic not get "deals it does not deserve."
A large sports stadium owned by the Municipality of Jerusalem is set to be used for at least two major missionary-sponsored events in the coming months. The purpose of such events is often wrapped in cowardly misleading appearances designed to fool Jews into attending. The event's true purpose, to brain-wash and convert Jews to Christianity, revealed only when unwitting attendees participate in the event.
(This is not just a 'Galut Mentality' of poorer Jews living in European shtetls, it is a treason motivated by idiotic indifference, apathy, greed and stupidity! Christian missionaries in Israel are not friends of Jews. They are deceitful cowards hunting Jewish souls, who continue the work of long-lasting anti-Semitic tradition of Inquisition and Nazis!)
Saudi-led air strikes against Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen , signaling a 10-nation Sunni Arab revolt against Iran's approaching takeover of Yemen . Saudi Arabia has placed 100 warplanes and 150,000 troops with heavy weapons at the disposal of the operation against Iran 's Yemeni proxy, the Zaydi Houthis, as well as pressing into service Pakistani, Moroccan and Jordanian military units. "The withdrawal of the remaining US military personnel from Yemen only adds to Riyadh's desperation, with Riyadh worried that Washington's priority is a nuclear deal with Tehran, not stopping Iranian subversion in the Arab world," said Middle East expert Bruce Riede.
(Saudi Arabia did not ask permission from Washington, giving only one hour warning before striking Houthis. Arabs do not care about opinion of others, protecting their religious and national it is something Israel must learn too!)
Quotes of the Week:
"I was only seven years old but I could easily see the ungodly treatment that the White Folks were handing the poor Jewish family whom I worked for... They were always warm and kind to me, which was very noticeable to me - just a kid who could use a little word of kindness." - Louis Armstrong. Despite having many problems of their own, the Karnofskys gave Armstrong a job, meals, and even lent him money to buy his first musical instrument.
The history of treatment of Jews in the US, in spite of the disproportionate contribution Jews made to the country, is not different to Europe or Muslim states, just conveniently forgotten. The ugliness is just hidden by 'pro-Israel' spin!
With the re-election of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Obama is solidifying his anti-Israel stance by throwing a temper tantrum. For the first time in decades, Obama is threatening to vilify Israel at the hostile United Nations, putting the best interests of the United States and the Jewish state at risk...
The administration also is accusing Netanyahu of "marginalizing Arabs" after he made a last-minute campaign promise to reject a two-state solution. However, it ignores that the vast majority of Arab countries surrounding Israel refuse to acknowledge Israel's right to exist.
Obama's anti-Israel sentiment isn't new... Obama has been openly hostile to the Jewish state since taking office.
In 2009, Obama travelled to Egypt , where he later supported the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Morsi, who eventually was ousted for being too extreme in implementing Islamic rules in Egypt) . (Morsi openly referred to Jews as "descendants of apes and pigs.") Despite Israel being right next door to Egypt , Obama didn't visit the country as president until 2013.
In 2011, Obama called on Netanyahu to shrink his country back into indefensible 1967 borders. In April 2014, Secretary of State John Kerry warned if Israel didn't come up with a peace agreement that it would turn into an "apartheid state," a claim pro-Palestinian (anti-Semitic peanut farmer) President Jimmy Carter has been making for years.
Last summer, when Iran-backed Hamas was launching thousands of rockets into Israel , White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, on national television, criticized Israel for defending itself
The Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations has begun a bipartisan investigation into allegations that the Obama administration helped fund activists to campaign against Netanyahu leading up to this week's elections...
As Mitt Romney pointed out in 2012, Obama's foreign policy has been about isolating friends of the United States while supporting or appeasing enemies...
(Obama is solidifying his anti-Israel legacy! He has failed to bring peace to Afghanistan and Iraq. He supported the Islamic 'Arab Spring' and the Muslim Brotherhood, and betrayed the US allies in Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen. He was blind to the rise of ISIS and assisted to destabilization of Syria by Islamists. His attempt to make his presidential legacy by improving relationship with Cube is a flop. He allowed hundreds of thousands of Muslims to come to the US . It is time to impeach the traitor!)

Hag Pessach Sameach - HAPPY PESSACH!
The physical departure from Egypt was brief and relatively painless from the historical perspective. On the other hand, the concepts of national unity and the chosen Jewish nation, living on the land given by G-d, is the one which many Jewish people are still struggling with, even those living in Israel . This self-doubt, which is perceived as lack of self-respect, is the main contributing reason to anti-Semitic ugliness and for the enduring Israeli-Arab conflict. Jews were admired and respected - even by traditional European anti-Semites - after Israel won the War of Independence, the Six Days war and the Yom Kippur war, when in spite of all odds the young Jewish state defeated superior Islamic forces. Each time these gains were lost and negated due to the pressure from those who pretend to be our friends and by caring for wellbeing of our enemies more than our own future!
Jewish people, community leaders and Israeli political hierarchy must remember - nobody respects those who have no self-respect!
President Barack Obama failed to shift French President France Hollande from his objections to the nuclear accord taking shape between the US and Iran in the call he put through to the Elysée Friday night, March 30.
US Secretary of State John Kerry fared no better, when he met British, French and German Foreign ministers in London for a briefing on the talks' progress intended to line the Europeans up with the American position. He then found that France was not alone; Germany too balked at parts of the deal in the making.
The French are demanding changes in five main points agreed between Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif before the Iranians quit the talks Friday: They insist that -
Iran can't be allowed to retain all the 6,500 centrifuges (for enriching uranium) conceded by the Americans. This figure must be reduced.
Similarly, the stocks of enriched uranium accepted by the US to remain in Iranian hands are too large.
France insists on a longer period of restrictions on Iran's nuclear work before sanctions are eased. It is pushing for a longer moratorium - 25 years rather than the 15 years offered by the Obama administration - and guarantees at every stage.
The main sticking point however is France's insistence that UN sanctions stay in place until Iran fully explains the evidence that has raised suspicions of past development work on a nuclear warhead design.
(There is no personal animosity and abuse, unlike the case with Netanyahu, coming from the White House toward European leaders, because they disagreed with President Obama!)
Joe Cirincione, head of the American anti-nuclear proliferation group The Ploughshares Fund, responding to the Iran nuclear deal said that with more advanced centrifuges achieved through the deal, Iran will be able to march to the bomb in a mere three weeks. Christopher Bidwell of the Federation of American Scientists said that concerns about Iran 's suspected warhead research are not even addressed in the framework deal.
EU Foreign Policy Executive Federica Mogherini announced that "a general agreement for a peaceful nuclear program and a lifting of sanctions against Iran " had been reached in Lausanne . Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif, who spoke next, said insisted: "There is no agreement; and so no commitments" before June 30. But President Obama hailed the agreement as a historic event that "meets our core objectives."
Iran is placing guided warheads on its rockets and smuggling them to Hezbollah in Lebanon , a senior Defense Ministry official said. Hezbollah, he continued, "is getting a lot of accurate weapons from Iran. It is in a very different place compared to the Second Lebanon War in 2006."
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
Many political players - Arab countries, traditional international anti-Semites and pathetic Israeli politicians - love playing the 'Two-State solution' game, but none of them want to see it end! There will be no reason to blame Israel for the Muslim Brotherhood taking over Gaza enclave, Hamastan; full-blown civil war between various fractions in the West Bank . Will they fight the rise of ISIS in 'Palestine'? If "yes", they will need to invite Israel to join a 'coalition', something they hate to do. Neither Arab states, nor European anti-Semites want to see another Islamist disaster on their door steps and next to Europe ! Therefore, "the show must go on!"
Europeans Keep Hamas on Terror List
The European Union (EU) kept Hamas on its terrorism blacklist, negating in practice a controversial court decision. However, two other groups have been withdrawn since the last EU list was published in July 2014: the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, which US officials have accused of funneling money to Hamas, and Al-Takfir and Al-Hijra, an Egyptian Islamist group.
Israeli Humanitarianism vs National Determinism
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu office confirmed that the funds, tax withheld, are transferred to the PA, to cover amenities including water, electricity and hospitals. The PMO stated that the decision had been taken "based on humanitarian considerations and from a wider perspective the interests of Israel at this time.
The United Nations is turning a blind eye to the murder of Christians and other minorities in the Arab world, said Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor. "... every year an estimate of more than 100,000 Christians are murdered in the Middle East and Africa because of some relation to their faith," Vatican spokesman Archbishop Silvano Maria Tomasi told the United Nations Human Rights Council.
(All 'friends' of Israel - US, EU and UN - are highly critical of the only true democracy in the Middle East - Israel, but mute about atrocities committed by Muslims/Arabs!)
Successful Test of "David's Sling"
Israeli officials announced that a joint US-Israeli missile-defense system has successfully passed a new test and is expected to be operational next year - a development that would provide an important tool in protecting the country against Hezbollah militants in Lebanon.
White House to Resume Military Aid to Egypt
President Obama told Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi that he would lift a hold of $1.3 billion in military aid for Egypt per year. The decision will allow for the delivery of 12 F-16 aircraft, 20 Harpoon missiles, and up to 125 M1A1 Abrams tank kits.
(Why waste US tax-payers money? Saudi Arabia has been doing good job financing the Egyptian military so far!)
The US administration either believes that the supervision on Iran 's nuclear program will be perfect, or that the Iranians have no intention of cheating. Either way, when the Americans talk about a historic deal, Israel and the Middle East react hysterically.
"Israel's position, similar to that of the US, Canada and others, is that the Palestinians do not have a right to join the ICC, and that the ICC has no jurisdiction in this case," the Israeli Foreign Ministry wrote in a statement. "There is not Palestinian state that has been established by international law. In this context the ICC prosecutor erred when she opened a preliminary inquiry against Israel."
(Ugly international anti-Semites do not care about international law when its violation can be used against Israel!)
Quotes of the Week:
"There is no way to go back down the path through which our people's consciousness was created without going to Hebron . The story of our roots is planted deep in the rocky grounds of Mount Hebron . For me this is not cynical or political statement - it is a basic fact that is clear to me, and is also true in the wider national and public context, that the Jewish community in Hebron tells the story of the creation of a nation, during its hay day, and also in difficult times." - Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, visiting Kiryat Arba and Hebron
Israeli politicians know everything about history of Jewish people, but do nothing to free Jewish land from Arab occupation!
Zionist Arab Activist Urges Jews to Wake Up
Anett Haskia, a Zionist Muslim Arab who ran in the Jewish Home primaries, has issued a dire warning to her nationalist Facebook friends to go out and vote, or face disaster. Haskia wrote:
"A feeling of loss!! I am on the verge of a heart attack! I have been driving around the Arab villages and cities to confirm the rumor and indeed, I have never seen anything like this in my life, most of them are outside on the ground, in the hope that the list will represent them, in their favor.
"The ground is burning around you and you are arguing about Left and Right on Facebook... Go, get the heck out, bring people, plow every hole-in-the-ground. They are bringing the votes of Israeli Arabs from Jordan and Europe and you are sleeping upright. The Chosen People, ha!
"After the loss, do not say 'Arabs' - the blame is on you and you alone. Awake!! Awake!! Awake!!
"O my people (Jews), enter the Holy Land which Allah has assigned to you and do not turn back (from fighting in Allah's cause) and (thus) become losers."
The majority of the Israeli public voted against a Palestinian state. So what? A few whines in the media, a bit of admonition from US President Barack Obama - and Netanyahu gives in.
The pressure always works through two channels, an internal one and an external one. The more moderate left, which is still ashamed to openly disregard democratic decisions, tries to promote its agenda through internal pressure in the media. The more radical left, unfortunately, has never honoured the Israeli voter's decision.
The combined pressure from the inside and outside could lead Israel's citizens to a reality they didn't vote for. We have already been there: I remember myself running around the streets, driving people to polling stations to cast the ballot with the caption reading, "Ariel Sharon for prime minister." In return for the effort and sweat, we got the destruction of Gush Katif.
Now that the election chaos is behind us, it's time for the media, legal and political opposition to show more national responsibility
So what am I asking for? Some space, some respect for the Israeli voter's decision, a bit less patronization... The right still has a lot to fix and improve, but it mostly needs to finally learn how to govern.
(and be true to the Jewish national aspiration - creation of the Jewish homeland, Eretz-Israel, on our ancestral land!)
Obama's Double Standard (by Aaron Goldstein)
Why is the Obama Administration less upset with Russia for hacking into the White House and State Department computers than it is with Israel for spying into its negotiations with Iran? Then again this is the same administration which is less angry with Iran for chanting "Death to America" than with Netanyahu for saying there would be no Palestinian state under his watch. This is the same administration that is less upset with ISIS for beheading Americans than it is with Israel for having the nerve to re-elect Netanyahu.
Dozens of Likud branch chairmen and members of Likud's Central Committee published a petition this week demanding that party chairman, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, add the Jewish Home to his coalition and avoid a 'unity' government with Labor at any cost.
(So-called Zionist Union party isn't better - just another anti-Zionist political chameleon!)
Leading defense expert, Professor Efraim Inbar who heads the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, said framework deal over Iran's nuclear program leaves Israel with little choice, should have struck "two years ago." Israel should "seriously consider" a military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities in the aftermath of the "framework deal" announced between Tehran and western powers.
The Islamic Republic's nuclear program has been granted "legitimacy" by the agreement, which still allowed it to continue enriching uranium and to maintain a reactor capable of producing enriched plutonium, he said. "And that's what worries Israel, that they (Iran) will be able within a short time frame to reach a nuclear bomb."
"As long as there was no deal it was easier for Israel to strike. They should have carried out a strike two years ago," he said. "This is not an easy decision but it's what needed to be done."
Despite that fact, many countries - most notably Israel's immediate neighbors - would be supportive of such a strike, and were waiting for Israel to neutralize the threat posed to them by a nuclear-capable Iranian regime. "In practice no one wants to see a nuclear Iran; all of them are playing the game so that Israel can pulls the chestnuts out of the fire."
The deal will allow the Islamic regime to continue enriching uranium. Israel has noted that there are 17 states which have peaceful nuclear programs, and none of them enrich uranium as Iran will be allowed to continue doing.
Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has stopped short of giving his endorsement to the framework nuclear deal struck last week between Tehran and world powers, while the country's elected leader warned separately that his country would not sign a final deal unless economic sanctions were lifted immediately.

I have communicated with many Catholics, Baptists, Anglicans, Noahites, Russian and Greek Orthodox people on my mail list. Some of them wrote that only "fake Christians", there too many of them, are anti-Semites and do not support the Jewish state. Although, it is hard to find good Christians who are supporting Israel without a hidden agenda - conversion of Jews is one of them! There is definitely no decent Christian leadership in the Vatican, London etc... There is no love or even respect for the sovereign Jewish state among the Western, 'Christian', governments and by member states of the UN - 'Ugly Nazi'!
(I meant no offence to good Christians, but I do not care what bad ones think!)
The PLO issued a statement that it would not be drawn into military action in in Syria, contradicting comments made earlier by the PA envoy to Damascus, Ahmad Majdalani, that Palestinian groups are ready to join forces with the Syrian government to expel ISIL fighters from the Yarmouk camp in the Syrian capital.
The Pentagon has been upgrading the biggest bunker-buster bomb in its arsenal as talks with Iran continued over Tehran's nuclear program. Work to improve the design, guidance systems and anti-jamming capabilities on the so-called Massive Ordnance Penetrator began before the latest round of negotiations with Iran started.
The IDF and Home Front Command are expected to invest about $25 million into "Code Red" and civilian warning systems against incoming rockets in 2015 in the event of another war with Hezbollah.
US expediting weapon supplies to Saudis
The United States is speeding up arms supplies to the Saudi-led coalition against Houthi fighters. Warplanes from Sunni-ruled Gulf states have been striking the Shi'ite Muslim rebels, in an attempt by the regional heavyweight to check Iranian influence in its backyard.

The company is partly funded by Jewish Russian billionaire and Chelsea soccer club owner Roman Abramovich.
MK Ahmed Tibi (Joint Arab List) harshly condemned the Arab world and the international community for allowing the Islamic State takeover of the Yarmouk so-called refugee camp in Syria : "I feel anger and great sadness about what is happening in what is left of the camp. There is a moral double standard. If other people were the victims, not Palestinians it would be different."

No Outrage over Mass Graves near Tikrit
Iraqi forensic teams have begun excavating 12 suspected mass grave sites thought to hold the corpses of as many as 1,700 Shia soldiers from Camp Speicher massacred last year by ISIS fighters as they swept across northern Iraq.

Obama's detente with Iran and recognition of Bashar Assad's key role in Syria has produced an incredibly sinister new twist in the Syrian war. The Yarmouk refugee camp and its 16,000 occupants face not one enemy, but two: the Islamic State and Assad's army, which opened the way for the ISIS attack.
(It just proves again that Arabs and Muslims do not really care about fake Palestinians; they just use them in their political game against Israel!)
In the 14 months since Russian President Vladimir Putin annexed Crimea and sent proxy fighters to invade eastern Ukraine, Russian companies have won more than $212 million in United Nations contracts to ferry troops, supplies and equipment -- on peacekeeping missions.
Quotes of the Week:
"The establishment of a buffer zone on the border is of absolute necessity to preserve Egyptian national security, particularly with the growing plans to export the Palestinian cause to Egyptian territory, away from its natural context. Thus, we cannot be emotional while thinking of the (population) displacement issue." - Justification given by Egypt for the internationally forbidden "population transfer", destruction of homes and for building the security barrier. President Mohammed Morsi passed a December 2012 decision, Decree No. 203, prohibiting the right to own, rent or build property located within 5 kilometers (3 miles) of the border with Gaza sector
Israel has bigger problems with Gaza than Egypt - and must impose the similar restrictions on Gaza! Only Israel receives endless international condemnations and is dragged through the anti-Semitic idiocy in the UN and the ICC!
Of all the idiocies uttered in reaction to Benjamin Netanyahu's stunning election victory, none is more ubiquitous than the idea that peace prospects are now dead because Netanyahu has declared that there will be no Palestinian state while he is Israel's Prime Minister.
I have news for the lowing herds: There would be no peace and no Palestinian state if Isaac Herzog were Prime Minister of Israel, or Ehud Barak or Ehud Olmert for that matter.
This is not ancient history. This is 2000, 2001 and 2008 - three astonishingly concessionary peace offers within the last 15 years. Every one rejected (by the PA leadership, and followed by violence and terror attacks unleashed on Israel!).
The fundamental reality remains: This generation of Palestinian leadership - from Yasser Arafat to Mahmoud Abbas - has never and will never sign its name to a final peace settlement dividing the land with a Jewish state. And without that, no Israeli government of any kind will agree to a Palestinian state.
There is a second reason a peace agreement is impossible: the supreme instability of the entire Middle East (including current developments).

Political correctness is not a new invention. According to the unofficial codex of intelligencia of Tsarist Russia, “A member of the intelligencia must not admit or show his anti-Semitic tendencies.” It was never about not having them!
After the US received intelligence that both the Palestinian Authority and Jordan’s King Abdullah II were planning a massive intifada against the State of Israel in order to prevent the Americans from relocating their embassy to Jerusalem, the Donald Trump administration warned both regimes, thus assuring that such attempts “would open hells gates for them.” This American response proves that US President Donald Trump is tough on terrorists and dictators.

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]
