Gaza - Palestinian Muslim Interfactional fightingIn 2006 public statements were made from within the leadership and Media of Palestine, that the PA syphoned off funds that should have been used to help the Palestinian people; that the real violence and economic woes of Gaza were caused by Palestinian gunmen, and that local Media were living under threat and intimidation, lest they publish the truth about what goes on in Palestine. Today in 2011 we hear that everything is just rosy!
Public Honesty in Palestine is a Refreshing Change
Orginally published in my column at Magic City on September 2nd 2006. Within one week, the situation in Gaza had become so bad, that there were calls for an international peace keeping force to protect Palestinians from Palestinians.
Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh declared on Friday that his embattled Hamas-led government had no intention of stepping down, despite a sweeping civil service strike and an economic crisis that a top UN official said has brought the Gaza Strip to a "point of near meltdown."
In 2006 local Palestinian Media were living under threat and intimidation, lest they publish the truth about what goes on in Palestine. Today in 2011 we hear that everything is just rosy!
That alone makes the content of this article as relevant today as when it was first written. - R.P. BenDedek
2006 Article Version
For years now we have heard nothing but the whining of the Bleeding Hearts clubs who constantly carry on about Israel being responsible for all the problems in Palestine.
One can only speculate as to why it is that we are finally hearing honest, public, and self effacing statements coming out of Palestine, but how refreshing it is to hear, not the least reason for which, is that it finally shows up the Anti-Semitic (at worst) and completely stupid (at best) attitudes of the Media and activist groups who, in droning on and on about the plight of the poor Palestinians, have blamed Israel for that poverty.
In the last few weeks, public statements have been made from within the leadership and Media of Palestine, that the PA syphoned off funds that should have been used to help the Palestinian people; that the real violence and economic woes of Gaza are caused by Palestinian gunmen, and that local Media have been living under threat and intimidation, lest they publish the truth about what goes on in Palestine.
We know that Hezbollah staged all the favourable press during the Lebanon War and we know that Journalists care less for the truth, than dollar generating headlines. We have also known about the criminal activities of the PA leadership, and the fact that the people of Palestine suffer because their leaders use them as PR drawcards and leverage in Political Manouevring, but despite all of this, many have continued their 'bleeding heart concealed anti-semitic' cries for justice.
But finally, now that the truth is being published in Palestine, and we can see that the people are publically protesting the government and the different factions are turning on each other; and now that we can see that the people have gotten sick of the Military stealing all the money needed for building and sustaining the community, we can also see the 'anti-semitism' of all those people who see the Palestinian military as heroes.
Here are excerpts from three stories (which you can read in full by following the links) which shows a different picture to that painted by the Anti Jewish lobby.
It is time for the Palestinian Leadership to concentrate on raising the living standards of the people, instead of razing it.
Palestinian journalists in the Gaza Strip complained on Tuesday that they were being subjected to a campaign of intimidation and terror by various armed groups and urged the Palestinian Authority to punish those responsible.
Several Palestinian journalists and editors have been killed or beaten over the past few years by unidentified gunmen, especially in the Gaza Strip. Until today, none of the assailants have been caught.
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on armed Palestinian groups that are firing rockets at Israel from the Gaza Strip, saying they were responsible for bringing death and destruction to the Palestinians.
Addressing thousands of Palestinian demonstrators outside his office in Ramallah, Abbas said: "So far we have about 250 martyrs in the Gaza Strip and thousands of wounded people and destroyed houses. Why? What are the reasons for this? Let's start searching for the reason for all this."
The money stolen by senior Palestinian Authority officials over the past decade is enough to pay the salaries of all PA civil servants for at least six months, the Hamas-controlled government said on Saturday.
The announcement came in response to a general strike that began in the Palestinian public sector on Saturday which paralyzed most government institutions and schools.
How Marvellous to hear the truth spoken in Palestine.
...Nagdi Allam, born in Egypt, and today vice editor of the Corriere della Sera. He wrote that the root of evil was in the blind ideology of hatred by some Muslims, which was raping the faith. Muslim terrorists kill Muslims and think it is legitimate to plan the destruction of Israel. The West should stop considering itself the cause of everything. The problem is an internal Islamic problem since extremists have transformed the faith in God into an ideology which wants to impose a theocratic and totalitarian regime, he concluded.
Today, Europe in particular and the West in general lack a clear strategy for coping with the Muslims who live in their midst. Premier Romano Prodi and UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan's notion that the Palestinian problem is at the center of the crisis in the Middle East does not explain why recent terrorist acts have been carried out in Turkey, Egypt, Algeria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia - all of them Muslim Arab countries.
"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."
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.
Marxists believe that the existing society must be destroyed in order to successfully establish the new order. They believe that society, like the Phoenix must die so that out of the ashes can rise the new Phoenix. I don't think that they realise that it is the same bird that rises, not one with a new design. Cultural Marxists pay no attention to the lessons of history, and it is we who will suffer because of it. We must begin to question what we have been taught. We must begin to see where our societies are headed. And most importantly, we must stop being bystanders who believe that there is nothing that they can do. (History, accelerated by science, is compressing itself, and our misfortunes, into ever tighter spirals. Can we cope? We can if we recognize the fact that man's astonishing technological progress presents just as many dangers to society as opportunities; and if we remember that utopia, or the Kingdom of Heaven, or whatever you choose to call such a state of grace, is not something that we confer on our society with science or social institutions, but forge within our souls by an act of devotion to some thing or principle greater than ourselves: Wm. B. Fankboner
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.
