Do you think that being Palestinian or Muslim means anything to the political leaders? While the American people complain about the number of casualties their people have suffered in Iraq, the fact is that the majority of deaths in Iraq are Muslim deaths at the hands of other Iraqi Muslims. Does being Iraqi or Muslim protect them or the Palestinians from political Islamic Terrorism? The issue is not one of finding a way to peace. That way has always been open. More than all the political demands of the bleeding heart Muslims could have been achieved if Palestine had accepted statehood in 1948. No land would have been lost to Israel, if the Arab countries had not attacked Israel and lost.
In the last few weeks I have written quite a few articles about the current situation in the Middle East, and had even begun to think that finally the Arabs at least were finally beginning to see some sense.
The Palestinian peoples have been up in arms at their treatment by their leaders; Hamas and Fatah have been at each other's throats; and The Saudi's seem poised to recognise Israel in order to stem the influence of Hezbollah in Syria because they are the Pawns of Iran.
But hope is fleeting in the Middle East. After much publicity about Palestinian recognition of Israel, come these stark reminders of the duplicitous nature of the Palestinian Leadership.
For the white western Political Correctness idiots, the issue of Palestinian Recognition of Israel of course demonstrates a justifiable faith in their political ideology. Unfortunately, they haven't the brains to see or hear what is plainly written or said.
But for the people of Palestine however, the latest announcements will prove to be just another pause in the continuing warfare and death, and mounting Palestinian casualties. It is just a tactic that offers no real peace. I personally would like to ask the people of Palestine:
When will the Palestinian People demand Peace and stability from their Leaders?
When will they see the benefits that a democratic government will bring them?
When will they see that Hatred leads to conflict and death.?
When will the Palestinian People wake up?
The Palestinian Leadership does not have the best interests of the people at heart.
Your sufferings are the will of your Leadership.
Will Palestine recognise Israel?
Palestinians at least know the real truth. In an article written by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook at Palestinian Media Watch dated Oct. 5, 2006, and entitled: "Abbas dupes US: "Recognition" is functional, not inherent" they write:
Abbas: Hamas must recognize Israel," announced the headline on the lead story in today's Jerusalem Post. The article went on to report that "PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas vowed to fire the Hamas-led government before the end of the month unless... they accepted Israel's right to exist. Abbas made his pledge in a meeting with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who expressed Washington's full support for the PA chairman and his Fatah party in their confrontation with Hamas."
Only the day before, however, Abbas said on PA TV that Hamas does not have to recognize Israel - nor does his own Fatah faction: "Hamas is not required to recognize Israel... It is not required of Hamas, or of Fatah, or of the Popular Front to recognize Israel."
He went on to say that government officials must "recognize their counterparts" in order to "solve people's problems," indicating that this does not constitute an inherent recognition of Israel, just a functional recognition that allows the PA to get what it needs.
The issue is not one of finding a way to peace. That way has always been open. More than all the political demands of the bleeding heart Muslims could have been achieved if Palestine had accepted statehood in 1948. No land would have been lost to Israel, if the Arab countries had not attacked Israel and lost.
Statehood and Peace have never been the agenda of Palestine. The agenda has been hatred toward Israel, and the people of Palestine have been the fodder! The problem has never been religion either. Just look to Iran for your example. Jews, Christians and Muslims live in peace. Talking to Teheran's Jews by SETH WIKAS in Teheran.
The Palestinian peoples have only one neighbour who understands and cares about their suffering - The Jews of Israel.
Do you think that being Palestinian or Muslim means anything to the political leaders? While the American people complain about the number of casualties their people have suffered in Iraq, the fact is that the majority of deaths in Iraq are Muslim deaths at the hands of other Iraqi Muslims. Does being Iraqi or Muslim protect them from political Islamic Terrorism?
It has been reported that there have been 12,000 Iraqi police casualties in Iraq since 2004. I have no idea how many ordinary civilians have suffered, but we are constantly being informed of them. 4000 Iraqi police killed so far.
"Since September of 2004, we've lost over 12,000 policemen to casualties, about 4000 of them have been killed," he said. "But yet, on the other hand, Iraqis every day join up to be part of these police forces."
Why do the Iraqi's join the Police Force?
Because they want to live in a free country. In a country where they are not pawns in a political or sectarian game. They are joining up to fight against those countrymen who want to rule over them against their will.
Just as militants in Iraq in caring only for their political agendas kill fellow Iraqis and Muslims, the leaders of Palestine care nothing for the people of Palestine as long as their suffering serves a political agenda.
It's time for the People of Palestine to demand a chance at peace, security and prosperity! If after some time, when you have tasted the fruits of a peaceful life, that you still feel the need to reclaim Israel, then let it be so.
But let us not continue believing the political propaganda that tells you that that your current sufferings are because the Israelis are so terrible. The Israelis sicken of war! They want peace! It is only the Leadership of Palestine that does not want peace. They refuse every offer of peace.
Your spilled blood, your casualties and your dead bodies, are so valuable to the political cause, that peace is the last thing that your leadership wants.
In the words of an old song: Give Peace a Chance! Maybe you will like it!

Although not directly related to this argument, a reader challenged me on the basis that my writing was biased, Pro-Israel, Pro-USA, and said that I don't understand the complexities of the Situation!
I beg to differ! Every argument starts with Blame! Every action justified because of something that someone else did! But the fact is that the three core issues of the Israel/ Palestine situation are Palestinian Statehood, Return of Land to the Palestinains and Peace for Israel. Statehood was always a possibility for Palestine.
The Return of captured Land would not have been necessary if Israel had not been attacked. That's how Israel got the land in the first place. The Land would never have been in their control had they not been attacked or if they had been defeated. But that is now a thing of the past. What matters is, "Will Israel return the captured territories?"
The fact is that it was offered back to Arafat, and is still being offered back to current Palestinian leadership, but the Palestinian Leadership is not interested in having it back, because it instead demands the complete removal of Israel.
Israel and Palestine could have been neighbouring states. Instead, they are enemies, because political agendas were preferred over the good of the Palestinian peoples. Saying that Israel should not be there, just justifies continued warfare. If you want Peace, you must destroy Israel or sue for Peace.
Now no matter who is responsible for what and when, the fact is that statehood and a return of captured land is an everpresent possibility. All that the Palestinian Leadership has to do, is say OK!- AND -let Israel live in Peace.
Blame and justification for continued violence is just an excuse to keep making the Israeli and Palestinian People suffer.
Receive back the Land. Become a State. Control the militants. Live in Peace!
Get rid of all the militants and replace them with a regular army! Establish 'Law and Order' protocols with Israel to punish people on both sides who take it into their own hands to commit acts of violence.
Grow, prosper, enjoy life! It is that simple!
Anything else is nothing more than a justification for more violence!
Under the classic principle of divide and rule, Arab is pitted against Jew in a bitter war of mutual extermination while British Imperialism utilises the deadlock in order that the Iraq pipeline may be guarded and the Suez Canal protected.
Almost 70 years later they are still pitted against each other
We've tried improving the economic situation of the Palestinian Arabs on the theory that people with a stake in their future tend not to blow themselves up. Or send others to do it.
But the problem is that Palestinian leaders do not really want their people to stop suffering. The last thing they want is to turn Gaza into Hong Kong or the West Bank into Singapore. And anyway, for the Ismail Haniyehs of Palestine, deprivation isn't the crux of the problem - it's a symptom that will go away when modernity is vanquished.
"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."
When we arrived, we noted that this place really was a resort centre. It had wave pools and other interesting things for people to enjoy, and even accommodated school tour groups with dormitory style accomodation. Opposite the breakfast room was a swimming complex, in the front of which was a very interesting sign. Unfortunately, I had forgotten to bring my .38 Smith and Wesson. When we went in for breakfast, we saw that the next room was set up for a wedding, and discovered that it was 'our' wedding reception. Taking a 'sticky beak', I noted that there were no knives on any of the tables. 'Ahah! Thank God I brought that solid clear plastic knife with me!'.. The whole time before and after the actual church service, the local beggars were inside the church hitting everyone for money. Oh the guilt of refusing a pittance for the poor in the house of God, but I was advised to give no one anything, for that would be more effective than the 'last trump' for the dead. All the beggars would arrive. Not that this mattered at all. Who was carrying money?
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.
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.
Free to air Academic articles set forth Apologetics for and results of his discovery of an "artificial chronological scheme" running through the Bible, Josephus, the Damascus Documents of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Seder Olam Rabbah.
Could the Pharaoh of the Exodus have been the Grandvisier Rekhmire? Attention was drawn to some particular points in relation to the records found in the Bible, in Josephus, and in Egyptian history, that might support the posit that Rekhmire was the Pharaoh of the Exodus. According to the King's Calendar Reconstruction of Israelite History, the 18th Dynasty Pharaoh Amenhotep II, was the Pharaoh of Egypt at the time of the Exodus. By the measure of Petrie's chronology, for the Exodus to have occurred in 1449 BCE, it would have taken place during Amenhotep II's co-regency during the last two years of the reign of Thothmes III
734 BCE - 586 BCE : Unlike the 4 part series: "The Law, Rules of Evidence & Archaeology" this article does not focus on legal argument, but highlights the weaknesses in Academic Opinion (and therefore 'weaknesses in Law'), in relation to King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon; King Hezekiah of Judah, and the Syro-Ephraimitic War 734-732 BCE
These are not necesssarily easy articles to read as they are written from a legal perspective. Some have argued that the laws that apply to evidence in a 'criminal proceeding' are more strict than those applied to civil cases, and that 'criminal investigation proceedures' ought not to be applied to archaeological and historical evidence. However it can be argued that when presenting something as 'evidence of solid fact', that the strictest guidelines ought to be applied. As is argued throughout these articles, offering opinions and making assumptions is fine, as long as they are stated to be so rather than specifically stating or implying that they are facts
Newsletter No.20 Is the Bible God Inspired or just the History of Israel? By R.P. BenDedek
My personal opinion is that if G-d did have such a powerful, lasting and personal hand in 'each and every word' recorded in the Bible, then he is fairly incompetent at delivering his message with clarity. This does not mean however that I absolutely 'reject' the concept of Divine Biblical inspiration. I fully accept that the Biblical documents are a true historical record of Israel's national and religious history.
