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.
Will it be any different in September 2007 when Statehood is proclaimed?
And Again in this article: - (...jpost.com) Haniyeh: No recognition of Israel we read:
Haniyeh vowed that Hamas would never recognize Israel. He said, however, that the group was prepared to accept a long-term cease-fire with Israel if it withdrew to 1967 boundaries. (Original link no good - may find similar article here)
What does this word mean, but that we intend to continue fighting with Israel. What does this mean if not that more Palestinians are going to die?
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. (quotes from a defunct link)
"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!
A Reader's Challenge!
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.
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!
I do apologize for the singing – mine – and by way of explanation, the reason that you hear me saying ‘hello’ (twice) is that a man told his son to say hello and when I decided to say ‘hello’ a lady walking passed me thought I had said it to her and so she also greeted me with ‘hello!’
Everyone is so concerned to be politically correct and so worried about being perceived racist, that they fail to see that in fact the true racists with the truly incorrect political agenda are the ones pointing the finger and doing the name calling. (In psychology it would be called reaction formation; the suppression of one impulse by the promotion of a counter impulse.)

Having met up with my pen friend we went ‘somewhere’ and there was this big open paved garden type area and there were platforms going nowhere which you ascended by climbing stairs. Through the middle of the paved courtyard-garden ran a little pond. I was fully aware of its existence but so focused was I on taking a good photo that I was walking while looking through the viewfinder of the camera. I fell straight into the pond.
The point in providing these videos on behalf of the Clarion Project is to hopefully assist in getting the word out that the extreme liberal progressive ideology does not represent REALITY when dealing with the politically motivated fundamentalist Islamist plan.

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]
