After about two hours during which a peaceful vigil was held, a group of police officers arrived, with a court order, claiming that the protest was to be dispersed. When the organizers requested an explanation about the puzzling order, and also attempted to photograph him and the officers, the police began using force and acting violently. Six were arrested, including two girls, two boys, an adult resident of Gush Etzion, and Nadia Matar from Women in Green.
The following article arrived in today's Newsletter from Women for Israel's tomorrow. Nadia Matar along with others has been arrested. That in and of itself is not newsworthy for she has previously been arrested for Insulting a Public Servant in a letter she sent.
This twist in events makes it necessary to bring to world attention, the injustices in Israel against Jewish Citizens.
Continuing to Hike in Eretz Israel!
Yehudit Katsover Nadia Matar
February 3, 2011
1) Thank G-d, all those from the trip in Gush Etzion who were arrested have been released. A great injustice was done them, by accusing them of manslaughter, when they acted in self-defense - and thanks to them the Arab rioters were unsuccessful in carrying out their plans.
2) Dozens of people participated in the protest vigil held yesterday in front of the Magistrates' Court, including hikers who come from throughout Israel to participate in these hikes and take possession of the land with their feet.
3) The speakers included Rabbi Yehudah Amihai, the head of the Torah and Land Institute and the father of Ahikam, may G-d avenge him, after whom and David Rubin, may G-d avenge him, these hikes are named; Rabbi Ya'acov Medan, the head of the Har Etzion Yeshivah; Rabbi Mordechai Rabinowitz, the rabbi of the Tiferet Yaakov congregation in Kokhav Yaakov; Boaz Haetzni; Dr. Nava Tavger; Alizah Said, the mother of David Said, one of those arrested; Danny Halamish, former Prisoner of Zion in Zion; Yisrael Bramson, member of the Kiryat Arba Local Council; Zvi Kedar, a resident of Kfar Sabah who was one of the hikers on Friday.
A letter to the Interior Minister by Knesset Members from the Eretz Israel Lobby was read in which they urge the minister to indict the Arab assailants, as was the letter by Shimon Kohen of Rehovot, another of the hikers.
All of the speakers praised the hikes and called for their continuation, the release of those arrested, and for bringing to trial the Arab rioters.
4) After about two hours during which a peaceful vigil was held, a group of police officers arrived, with a court order, claiming that the protest was to be dispersed. When the organizers requested an explanation about the puzzling order, and also attempted to photograph him and the officers, the police began using force and acting violently. Six were arrested, including two girls, two boys, an adult resident of Gush Etzion, and Nadia Matar from Women in Green. Participants who continued to protest were brutally attacked and pushed, including Yehudit Katsover who was punched in the ribs and the back. In the wake of the arrests, a letter of strong protest was sent to the Minister of Internal Security.
5) In order to take full legal action against the unrestrained policemen who so brutally attacked the protest participants, we are collecting evidence. We ask all the participants in yesterday's protest to provide us, as quickly as possible, with all documentation: video recordings, still photographs, written testimonies to what you saw, and the like. We will not let this pass quietly.
6) We wish to thank all the protest participants who came. Once again, we learned that support and public involvement bear fruit. We thank Adv. Adi Kedar from the Honenu organization for immediately coming to the assistance of those arrested.
"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

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.
