This morning, Wednesday, January 26, 2011, Arabs conducted plantings at Netzer in Gush Etzion, in the presence of the Palestinian Tourism Minister. Dozens of vehicles of the Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian police were in the area. The veteran residents of Gush Etzion know that the area of Netzer, the hills between Alon Shvut and Elazar, have all been state lands since 1967, except for two small plots.
This morning, Wednesday, January 26, 2011, Arabs conducted plantings at Netzer in Gush Etzion, in the presence of the Palestinian Tourism Minister. Dozens of vehicles of the Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian police were in the area. The impression gained was that half of the Palestinian Authority had moved from Ramallah to Gush Etzion. Additionally, scores of Arabs arrived in busses and private vehicles, accompanied by international activists who entered the area to plant.
When we asked for explanations from IDF people in the field, we were told that they are "planting on Palestinian land. What's the problem?"
And so, the problem is a severe one:
1) This is a clear retreat from our sovereignty on the ground. Entry permits in Israeli-controlled area C for the Palestinian Tourism Minister and Palestinian Authority officials undermine our sovereignty. This also gives strong support to the Arabs who take control of state lands.
2) "Palestinian lands" is a bluff, that the IDF, headed by Barak, is only too happy to adopt. The veteran residents of Gush Etzion know that the area of Netzer, the hills between Alon Shvut and Elazar, have all been state lands since 1967, except for two small plots. The Arabs took control of the lands, and under the aegis of the Draconian law that states that after the Arabs work the lands for a number of years, they become theirs.
3) The spineless Defense Minister, who is also lacking independence, is extremely dangerous on the ground. We thought that we had freed ourselves of the extreme leftist wing of his party, but events on the ground prove that Barak is continuing the moves to grant independence to the Palestinians throughout all Judea and Samaria. The Prime Minister knows with whom he entered into the marriage, and is not innocent as regards Barak's actions.
At 12:00 noon the IDF removed the Arabs from the area. During the time of the Arabs' event, Jews were not permitted to enter.
The soldiers, the Border Patrol, and the junior officers in the field were furious, and realized that this is a national disgrace and humiliation. Thank G-d, the people is healthy. It's a pity that the country's leaders do not draw strength from the people's spirit, and continue to plan further capitulations.
And in a direct connection to the above, we thank Al Jazeera for exposing what was done in the back rooms, about what our leaders are conducting give-and-take negotiations, actually, just giving.
Residents of Gush Etzion, Efrat, Maaleh Edumim, Ariel - wake up! The Arabs haven't heard of 'settlement blocs"!
Today, it was shown, more than ever, that the struggle for our land is actually being waged on the ground.
Accordingly, this Friday we will continue with plantings at Netzer at 9:00 a.m. The public is invited. Come one, come all.
"The Balfour Declaration was not an impetuous or sentimental act of the British government, as has been sometimes represented, or a calculated measure of political warfare. It was a deliberate decision of British policy and idealist politics, weighed and reweighed, and adopted only after full consultation with the United States and with other Allied Nations."
Of course, many have observed over the years that FDR was a masterly showman, and that his public image was largely artifice. David Brinkley, for one, who covered Roosevelt as a young reporter, notes in his memoir that the patrician president was a "social snob" who in private didn't hide his contempt for those "educated in what he called redbrick colleges." But it was in his attitude toward minorities, and Jews in particular, that Roosevelt's reputation and the facts diverge most sharply.
For over four centuries after the Caliph Omar conquered the land of Israel in 633-4 CE, a synagogue and Jewish house of study operated on the Temple Mount and Jews were able to pray there freely. Among others, this is attested to by Rabbi Abraham bar Chiya HaNassi, a leading Spanish rabbinical authority of the 12th century, who wrote in his book Megilat Megaleh that, "at the beginning, after the Romans destroyed the Temple, Israel was not prevented from coming and praying there, and similarly the kings of Ishmael enacted a beneficent custom and allowed Israel to come to the Temple Mount and build a house of prayer and study." Furthermore, he notes, "all the exiles of Israel who lived near the Temple Mount would ascend on festivals and holidays and pray there."
According to a report on Israel Channel 2 earlier this month, as of May 2011 the PA was spending NIS 26m. ($6.5m.) per month on payments to families of suicide bombers. They are also laying out an additional NIS 18m. ($4.5m.) each month in payments to the families of Palestinian prisoners, including those from Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Hence, the PA provides NIS 12,000 ($3,000) on a monthly basis to the family of Abbas al-Sayed, who was convicted of planning the 2002 Passover massacre at the Park Hotel in Netanya which murdered 30 Israelis

In short, it is the concept that instead of a two state solution, Israel takes control over the Palestinian West Bank
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.
