2013: Has anything changed since this was written in 2006? Maybe Just A different USA President! Hamas "openly vows to destroy Israel" and "never recognize or negotiate" with the Hebrew State. The news is that your Administration expectS Hamas (the terror Organization) to be keen on using Abbas as a middleman who would represent Hamas' interests in dealing with Washington and Jerusalem.
God of the Hebrews (Israel) Angry with President Bush (et.al)
Dear President Bush from Rev. Jim Vineyard. January 7, 2006
Dear. Mr. Bush:
First, Mr. President, let me congratulate you on the Texas Longhorns winning the NATIONAL TITLE. Vince Young is really a tremendous athlete as a quarterback, And the rest of the Texas Football team is a fine group of young athletes backing him up.
However, Mr. President, what I am addressing in this letter is our War against Islamic Terror. I realize, Sir, that I am not your teacher or master; however, there are observations this "hell-deserving sinner saved by the Grace of God" can make relative to our present positions in this war.
The Council on Foreign Relations and the Iraq Coalition Casualty Count shows from May 1, 2003, to December 31, 2003, 21 suicide (and other) attacks upon US forces and Iraqi allies with 655 wounded and 330 dead. The year 2004 recorded 230 attacks with 3,009 wounded and 2,950 dead. The year 2005 records 528 attacks with 5,064 wounded and 5,089 dead. So far this year, just in the first 6 days, there have been 7 attacks with 218 wounded and 161 dead.
Mr. President, to us common, ordinary, tax-paying voters, there is much to be concerned about. Academia, the Democrats, and mainline News Media will, in time, make a big "to do" about these mounting casualty figures which will, again, in time, seriously hamper the will or resolve of the American people to back the Islamic Terrorist War. Militarily, the Islamists know they can never defeat us on the field of battle, but what they are out to defeat is our "will and resolve."
Now, Mr. President, from the little nation of Israel this week, I have read that Condi, the State Department, and the Bush administration have taken the gloves off vis-a-vis Israel and their battle against Islamic Terrorism telling them, "Do it our way, or we will cut off your supply of jet fuel and spare parts; we will cancel contracts both ours and any international contracts you have for your technology and industry."
Mr. President, to say the least, that bit of news is very disturbing and discouraging, seeing that we "born-again Christian" backers of yourself see the war in Israel and Iraq and Afghanistan as "ONE AND THE SAME."
Further news from Israel shows your administration favors Hamas' bid for election (in the upcoming PLO vote) as a means of bolstering Mahmoud Abbas and his team in power at the head of the Palestinian Authority.
Hamas "openly vows to destroy Israel" and "never recognize or negotiate" with the Hebrew State. The news is that your Administration expectS Hamas (the terror Organization) to be keen on using Abbas as a middleman who would represent Hamas' interests in dealing with Washington and Jerusalem.
More news from Israel shows that Al Qaeda is smuggling the 30 km range Grad 122 mm surface missiles into the Gaza Strip through the "Rice-enforced Rafah crossing" right under the noses of the Israelis, who, through the "Rice mandate," are powerless to stop them.
The Grad 122 is a standard artillery weapon common in use in the World armies who have been supplied by the Soviets or Chinese. It is a formidable weapon! The ports of Ashdod and Ashkelon, as well as the Israeli towns of Kiryat Gat and Gedera, are now in range of the Al Qaeda Grad 122mm's.
In addition, for your information, Mr. President, the 82nd Airborne Division troops at Sharm al-Sheikh Base are also within reach of Al Qaeda's strongholds in central Sinai.
Up in Southern Lebanon is a Palestinian Militia calling itself Osbat al-Ansar, or Jund al-Shem (Army of the Levant), which is headed by Palestinian Abu Yusuf Sharqiya. Sharqiya has devoted ten years to training Terrorists, who are now in Al Qaeda's ranks.
Not all the troops of the Army of Levant are Palestinians. There is a group of extremist Muslim Lebanese Kurds, whose chief is Abu Remez al Sahmarani. The present commander Army of the Levant is Imad Yasin, who took over when his predecessor, Abu Muhjin, went to fight with Zarqawi's terrorists against US Forces in Iraq.
Muhjin, whose real name is Abdul Karim Saadi, set up the connection between the Army of the Levant and Zarqawi's Al Qaeda in Iraq. This "Army of the Levant" is so tightly intermeshed with Al Qaeda by now that it maintains a special officer to liaise with Osama bin Laden and Ayman al Zawahiri, like the global organization's European, North African, and Indian-Pakistani branches.
The Army of the Levant gets most of its weapons AK 47's, an assortment of rockets, .82 mm mortars, and lately, the Grad missiles through Syria.
Mr. President, in the days of late December 2005 and early January 2006, the Palestinian Security Services (in Gaza) saw their "‘desertion rate" shoot up 40%.
They then hire out, using the AK 47's (the USA has furnished them), to get a regular paycheck with bonuses, mostly to the al Aqsa Brigades, which traces its cash back to Al Qaeda through HizBallah and Iran.
What is happening right before our very eyes, Sir, is a breakdown of established groups into lawless armed gangs being exploited by Al Qaeda, who buys their way into the disintegrating Palestinian terrorist movement.
A group, Sir, that made its appearance in the Gaza Strip on January 3rd calls itself the "Storm Riders," a name taken from Zarqawi's networks, or the "‘IBN AL WALID BATTALION," for the Muslim General who defeated the Byzantine armies at Hittin in the 7th Century. And now, Sir, Al Qaeda's operatives are streaming into the Gaza Strip from Sinai.
Mr. President, I pay no attention to the Vietnam Syndrome; however, what we are doing relative to Israel is the same. We are handcuffing the Hebrews "with their hands behind their backs" just as the Politicians did to the brave American servicemen in Vietnam.
We allowed the NVA sanctuaries all over the place. If American servicemen saw NVA, they could not shoot while the NVA were in the sanctuaries. And, another idiot rule was the "you can't shoot until you are shot at"!
Mr. President, the Islamists in Iraq and Afghanistan are exactly the same enemy the Hebrews face in Gaza and South Lebanon. We Americans best watch that we do not anger THE LORD GOD OF THE HEBREWS in how we treat the Sons and Daughters of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and King David.
Mr. President, stop listening to your Politically Correct advisers and start making concrete decisions, which will allow the Hebrews in Israel to fight our common enemy, just as we are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Your Friend and Servant,
Jim Vineyard, Pastor, Windsor Baptist Church

This conviction is revealed by the fact that 76% of Israeli Jews want Israel to permanently retain sole responsibility for security in all of Judea and Samaria. Eighty-eight percent say that Israel must permanently control the territory bordering Ben-Gurion Airport. Eighty-one percent insist that Israel must permanently control the land that bordering the Tel-Aviv-Jerusalem highway Route 443.
“Occupier” is a legal term that does not apply to Israel. Israel’s legal title and rights to its present territory were established in the San Remo resolution, an agreement adopted by victorious Allied Powers after World War I, confirmed by the League of Nations, and incorporated into the U.N. charter. None of the Jewish people’s rights to live, emigrate to and settle the land of Israel have ever been revoked, nullified or superseded by a subsequent act of international law.
Both of them understand what Sima Kadmon wrote in her latest political column: “After all, Religious Zionists are a bunch of suckers, you’ve been treading on them for four years, and a month before the election, you suck up to them and the voters come storming in droves.” So right. So true. So sad.
While Minister Lieberman speaks of 2.7 million Arab Palestinians in Judea and Samaria, the actual data that has been validated by senior demographers is that there are 1.8 million Arab Palestinians, and this figure has been trending continually downward for the past twenty years along with the most rapid westernization of any other area.
So there you have it. The Patriarch Joseph was born in 1683BC. He was set over the Kingdom of Egypt in 1656BC. The Israelite Sojourn in Egypt commenced in 1648BC. Joseph died in 1582BC. The Hyksos were expelled in 1554BC. Moses was born in 1523BC.The Exodus commenced in 1449BC. The Israelites entered Caanan in 1412BC and 480 years later in the 4th year of Solomon the first temple commenced construction in 970 BC.
I am going to make some statements about the USA as might be found in the newspaper of a mythical communist country called, ‘The Democratic Marxist Republic of Californication.’ In doing so, I am going to be making statements that a casual world news observer or internet savvy foreigner might actually consider to be factual based on extensive exposure to western media.
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!
Where were these PC (expletive) when I and others were writing years ago about the Syrian crisis? Did they care about the Syrian people? No they didn’t! Do these same sociopathic western political activists who would call me a racist support Muslim and other cultures similar practices such as female circumcision? – polygamy? – arranged marriages? No they don’t! They outlaw it! So don’t talk to me about how I am a racist!

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]
