It is false to state that the Zionist project prevented the emergence of an independent Palestinian Arab state after World War 2. Such a state was integral to the UN partition plan. What did prevent it was the refusal of the Arabs (continuing to this day) to accept Jewish self-determination in any area, however small. There are currently 22 Arab states with a joint area at least 400 times, and a population (only) 50 times, greater than Israel...(Not so long ago, most of so-called Palestinians have come from those states!)

Two men waving ISIS flags and shouting Islamist slogans rammed a car triggering a large explosion at an American-owned liquid gas factory near the southern French city of Grenoble. Around 200 people were killed, Egyptian troops, Islamist attackers and civilian, in the fierce ten-hour battle.

(.../freeworldexpress.com/) Israel is a Tiny Oasis of Democracy (irishexaminer.com - Reply to an anti-Israel posting)
It is false to state that the Zionist project prevented the emergence of an independent Palestinian Arab state after World War 2. Such a state was integral to the UN partition plan. What did prevent it was the refusal of the Arabs (continuing to this day) to accept Jewish self-determination in any area, however small.
There are currently 22 Arab states with a joint area at least 400 times, and a population (only) 50 times, greater than Israel... ( Not so long ago, most of so-called Palestinians have come from those states!)
Not a single one of these entities is a democracy, and few are 'secular' in any meaningful sense. Why should Jews abandon their right to self-determination in their own tiny oasis of democracy and trust their futures to the chimera of a "single country, a democratic secular state of Palestine" containing all Jews (like in Gaza?) and Palestinian Arabs.
The religious freedoms and the very existence of religious and ethnic minorities all over the Middle East - Christians, Yazidis, Druze, Kurds, Assyrians - are currently under threat from resurgent Arab-Islamic supremacism. Attacking Israel's legitimacy is the new-old imperial project to subjugate the Jewish minority, the only one that has yet shown the ability to defend itself.
(Without Israel as the Jewish state all religious holy sites - Jewish, Christian and even most Muslim ones - will be destroyed and the will be no Easter for Christians in Jerusalem and Bethlehem!)
'Ugly Nazi' Using Its Best Tools Against Israel
1.Hypocrisy: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon attacked Israel, saying it needed to do more to protect the lives of Palestinian Arab children during counter-terror operations in Gaza. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu blasted the UN's hypocrisy. "This is a dark day for the United Nations," Netanyahu said. "Instead of mentioning the fact that Hamas turned Gaza's children into hostages when it fired from kindergartens on the children of Israel, the UN chooses again to preach to Israel."
(In Yemen, at least 279 children died in 10 weeks of violence - Ban Ki-Moon does not criticize Saudi Arabia for war it conducts in Yemen - no 'outrage' here! And military experts have said that Israel has done more to protect civilians than any other armed forces. If Israel is guilty of war crimes, the US, Great Britain, France and others are guilty of worse crimes.)
2. Smear: In her initial draft from last month, Leila Zerrougui of Algeria, the UN's Special Envoy on Children in Armed Conflict, named Israel among the worst abusers of child rights including Islamic State and Boko Haram. After Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu personally appealed to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Israel was taken off the list.
(For how long is Israel going tolerate this 'UN-bias' attitude of the 'Ugly Nazi'?)
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
How to spot an anti-Semites? - They usually ask "Why are there so many rich Jews?" They never ask "Why are over 22% recipients of Nobel Prizes Jews?" (Note: there are 14 million Jews, less than 0.02% of the world population) So, why are Jews so disproportionably successful in business, science, agriculture, military, medicine, computer technology and communication, and other vocations? And this is in spite of chronic discriminatory treatment by most countries and international organizations!
Bill Gates, Carlos Slim Helu, Mark Cuban, Donald Trump, and Warren Buffet are amongst an ever-growing number of people that have or are currently investing millions of dollars in the Israeli tech industry. The unique experiences and skillsets in Israel set it apart from similar types of companies in Silicon Valley.

PA media and security officials are reporting that IDF soldiers shot two Arab terrorists taking part in attacks against Jewish visitors to Joseph's Tomb at Shechem (Nablus ) in Samaria. The IDF allows Jews to visit the tomb of the Biblical figure only once a month for Rosh Chodesh, the new month festival, during night time.
(Jews are forced to visit secretly Jewish holy sites on Jewish land. Terror attacks against Jews are under-reported by Israeli and international media!)

The US stepped up its security cooperation with Israel, pledging $40 million on research and development to find a solution for cross-border tunnels. Over 150 tunnels have been discovered on the US-Mexico border, used to smuggle illegal immigrants and drugs. Tunnels have also been used to attack US military personnel in South Korea.

Hamas has been passing to Israel information on rival Salafist jihadists in the Gaza Strip hoping the Jewish state will target those militants, an Egyptian security source told. The source said Hamas is fully aware that the information it provides to Egypt on Gazan Salafist rivals will be shared with the Jewish state.

Israel has won an important victory over the BDS when a boycott on the sale of Israeli products in a national supermarket chain COOP, which has 655 branches across Sweden, has been cancelled. "There was a great protest. A lot of people here are against boycotts," said Israeli Ambassador to Sweden Isaac Bachman. "We talked about fair trade. We explained that anyone who supports a boycott hurts the customers and the quality of the products. It resonated with people."

The Hamas welcomed the shooting attack near the town of Dolev, in which 25-year-old Danny Gonen was murdered and another man was wounded. "We welcome the unique and heroic operation that took place near Ramallah," said Hamas spokesman Husam Badran. "We, and with us all our people, view with the utmost respect and appreciation those pure hands who held on to the resistance and turned their fire toward the occupier."

A senior US official and Western diplomat downplayed a report from the Russian news agency Tass, which quoted a diplomat as saying talks are "virtually stalled." Sources said that the talks are at a delicate moment and that negotiations may have to be extended a few days past the June 30 deadline.

Druze mob from the Golan village of Majdal Shams ambushed an Israeli ambulance which was carrying seriously injured Syrian rebel fighters to hospital, seized the vehicle and beat them up. They attacked Israeli troops who tried to intervene. One Syrian died in hospital; the second is critical.
(Some analysts are saying that Druse and other Muslims sects are different to Arabs in their behavior and attitude, and even could be Israel's ally. They are wrong!)
Spanish Town " Camp Kill Jews" Changes Its Name
Following a vote and regional government approval, Spanish town Castrillo Matajudious, which translates to "Camp Kill Jews," has officially changed its name back to Castrillo Mota de Judios ("Jews' Hill Camp"). Documents prove the town's original name was indeed "Jew's Hill Camp," but that it was changed to "Camp Kill Jews" in 1627, in the wake of a 1492 edict ordering Jews to convert to Christianity or face expulsion.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ruled out freezing sensitive nuclear work in the country for a long time and said sanctions imposed on it should be lifted as soon it reaches a final deal with major powers. Limitations on Iran's uranium enrichment capacity and research, rigorous verification systems, including for military sites, and restoring sanctions immediately if Tehran reneged on its obligations are key elements of a deal.

The parliament of Tajikistan passed a law annulling the citizenship of nationals fighting abroad with organizations such as the radical Islamic State group (ISIS). More than 400 Tajiks have joined the brutal ISIS insurgency in Iraq and Syria.
(Tajik government has no problem with making its citizens-terrorists stateless. Technically, those who have joined the Islamic State are its citizens! Why are the Western countries still playing this idiotic 'liberal' game?)
Quotes of the Week:
"Now that the EU is subject to the same problem as Israel was, they dont like it one bit. In contrast Israel received 10,000 migrants per million, Hungary and Germany received only 3200 and 900 per million respectively. Europe is going to struggle with this problem for years." - Ted Belman
The EU is building a 109 mile long fence along Hungary-s southern border designed to keep migrants from crossing into EU territory. No international outcry or condemnation - the press is mute - unlike when Israel was building its security wall!

(.../freeworldexpress.com) Ramadan is Month of Violence and Hate
Middle East expert Dr. David Bokai explained that Ramadan is traditionally a month of violence and is the wrong time to offer any kind of gestures to Muslims.
"Look at all of the terror attacks in Kuwait, France and here in Israel," he explained. "They carry out terror attacks against all of the enemies of Islam. Ramadan is defined as the month of victory. All of the great victories of Mohammed and the expulsion of the Crusaders took place on that month. That is why Ramadan turns into a month of terror and violence worldwide."
Dr. Bokai noted that Israel makes the same mistake every year, regarding Ramadan. "It's amazing that we don't learn, and we make gestures for Ramadan every year," he said. "It drives me mad and makes me nauseous. This is not a month for making gestures, but for placing limitations. When you offer them gestures, you get terror and violence. In this month one should toughen and harden policy."
The imam's sermons also inflame the spirits, the expert added. "You see people from the middle class upward who are influenced by the sermons at the mosques during Ramadan. After a 20-minute Friday sermon, they leave with a will to slaughter and kill. That is what characterizes Islam - it's a religion of murder and not of peace. Its culture says that the entire world must be conquered."
(.../freeworldexpress.com) Message from ISIS - "Happy Ramadan!"
ISIS "Ramadan operations" left at least 209 dead in France, Tunisia and Mid East. In the popular Tunisian resort town of Sousse gunmen killed at least 37 holidaymakers. At least 24 worshippers were killed and 200 injured after Friday prayer in Kuwait by a suicide bomber. In the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani ISIS forces executed 146 Syrians.

(.../freeworldexpress.com/) When Deadline Becomes Endless 'Moment of Truth'
"We have our own sense of deadline," said the US Secretary of State John Kerry. Negotiators here in the Austrian capital are brushing aside the practice of setting hard deadlines in their pursuit of a comprehensive (means fake) nuclear agreement with Iran (two years gone the negotiations - no real progress is made). They have now resolved to stay in Vienna until the deal is done. "We did not set any deadline," said Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
When national pride and sovereignty is involved, most countries ignore international opinion - China is defying international opinion and accelerating building of its artificial islands; Russia is still occupying Sothern Ossetia and Abkhazia, ignores outcries against annexation of Crimea and is sending arms and military personal to Eastern Ukraine! Only Israel is unable to shake off the 'galut' mentality and is conducting probes and investigations after endless and deliberately anti-Semitic international false accusations. It is time to learn how to ignore them and reunite Jewish land, Eretz-Israel. Our enemies are not interested in peace, only in destruction of the Jewish state!
(.../freeworldexpress.com) Israel Funds Enemies of State!
Nationalist activist notes a paradox as national service directorate gives funds to radical leftist NGOs defaming Israel but not defenders of Israel.

Salafists in the Gaza Strip plan to officially pledge allegiance to ISIS and openly fight under its banner.

After recognizing PA as a 'state,' Pope Francis's supposedly apolitical Vatican signs a treaty, covering the life and activity of the Church in Judea and Samaria, with 'Palestine' before it does so with Israel. In contrast to its rush to sign accords with the PA, the Vatican has had diplomatic relations with Israel since 1993 but has yet to conclude an accord on the Church's rights in the Jewish state which has been under discussion since 1999.

The US Air Force has conducted at least three trial runs of a bombing campaign against Iran's nuclear facilities last year.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey will never allow the establishment of a Kurdish state in Syria.

Tunisia to Shutter 80 Mosques
Tunisia plans within a week to close down 80 mosques that remain outside state control for inciting violence, as a countermeasure after the hotel attack that killed dozens. Tunisia, which has been hailed as a model of democratic transition since its 2011 'Arab Spring' uprising, is one of the most secular countries in the Arab world. But the country has also struggled with the rise of Islamist movements (Almost 3,000 Tunisians joined ISIS) as ultra-conservative preachers took advantage of the upheaval and young democracy to take over mosques.
(As the first step toward fight against the Islamic State the Western democracies can follow Tunisia and close Islamic hate centres!)
Quote of the Week:
"The great powers had photographs of the railway routes that the trains took to the concentration camps, like Auschwitz, to kill the Jews, and also the Christians, and also the Roma, also the homosexuals. Tell me, why didn't they bomb those railroad routes?" - Pope Francis
Jews have been asking this question since the end of WW2. All international anti-Jewish bigots, including USA, were complacent in the genocide. Before the war "the great powers" blocked the escape of Jews from Europe, after the war they facilitated escape of many Nazis from justice! This particular Papal statement was largely ignored or convoluted/hidden by international media. Almost immediately, the Pope recognized Palestine - this is hypocrisy!
Good, Bad and Ugly anti-Semites
by Steven Shamrak.
Dear human beings. It has become apparent that a phenomena of anti-Semitism - in its old and modern forms - is on the rise again. At the same time, according to one of the EU directors there is "a problem with the definition of anti-Semitism" For that reason, I would like to focus on the definition of the people who subscribe, perform and propagate anti-Semitism. They are three types of anti-Semites:
1. Good anti-Semites: They express freely their prejudicial feelings toward Jews. I admire people who have an opinion and openly express it, regardless of their political inclinations. I welcome and respect any opinion, even if it is based on lack of factual knowledge. When an opinion is expressed it is opened for discussion. Discussions facilitate growth and change for the better.
2. Bad anti-Semites: They actually act on their prejudicial belief system. They paint graffiti, smash Jewish tombstones, break windows in Synagogues or even sacrifice themselves in suicide attacks. The rule of law must be indiscriminately applied to any act of violence against individuals, organizations and government institutions regardless of their political, racial or religious affiliation!
3. Ugly anti-Semites: They are the worst kind. Many of them are, seemingly, nice people. They could be beggars or multi-billionaires, your neighbours or Prime Ministers. Most of them are nice, polite and very illusive. They are quiet when their voice must be raised but vocal when it is not. The silence facilitates the rise of any ugly discrimination and prejudice, not just anti-Semitism.
Only simple human decency and intolerance to ugly 'killer silence' can stop the sickening circle of hate.
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

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]
