Terrorism in the Middle East: Honest Media Reporting: Media Manipulation: Media Bias:MEMRI documents regular PA sermons urging children to blow themselves up while "plunging into the midst of the Jews."

Communique: 1 March 2004 - With Permission from HonestReporting.com
Dear HonestReporting Subscriber,
On Feb. 26, the IDF arrested three Palestinian boys aged 12, 13, and 15, armed with homemade weapons and attempting to infiltrate Israel from the West Bank. The boys told police that they were trying to reach the Israeli town of Afula, where they were planning to open fire on civilians, then die as "martyrs."
No observer of Palestinian society could be surprised by this event. Besides being regularly used as guinea pigs by terrorist groups, Palestinian children are raised in a culture that glamorizes violence at every turn, encouraging active participation in suicide terror from the youngest age.
Yet in covering the arrest of these three young boys, Associated Press includes no reference whatsoever to Palestinian cultural encouragement of child terrorism -- and actually goes a step further, describing the boys' act as "sparking horror" and "shock" among Palestinians that such a thing could occur:
In an article headlined "Use of Young Recruits Upsets Palestinians," AP reports that
[13-year old] Tarek's parents were outraged and criticized Islamic Jihad for recruiting youngsters for an attack that would likely lead to their deaths... the ages of the Tubas youths was especially shocking for many... [they] found it hard to reconcile their image of their children with that of militants.
Then AP quotes the official PA position:
"That's absolutely unacceptable," said Palestinian Cabinet Minister Saeb Erekat. "Our children should have hope and a future and should not be suicide bombers. We want them to be doctors and engineers."
Does AP seriously believe that an intelligent reader is convinced that Palestinian parents and officials are "shocked" by child violence?
While American kids collect baseball cards, Palestinian kids eagerly collect "terrorist cards."
MEMRI documents regular PA sermons urging children to blow themselves up while "plunging into the midst of the Jews." And Itamar Marcus recently testified to the US Senate on the systematic indoctrination of young Palestinian children -- through official PA schoolbooks, public events, television, and even music videos -- to become suicide terrorists "for the sake of Allah."
What conclusion can be drawn? Perhaps AP is woefully ignorant of the constant brainwashing of Palestinian children to seek religious "martyrdom" through suicide terror. Alternatively, AP's complete omission of key context -- while presenting the child violence as a shocking surprise for Palestinian parents and officials -- is a blatant violation of media objectivity, effectively covering up for Palestinian society's appalling mistreatment of children.
Interesting, isn't it, that on the wall of the home of the 12-year old arrested in this incident were posters glorifying armed Palestinian thugs.

United Nations Anti-Israel: The situation in 2011 is no different. The same situations; the same questions; the same answers; the same lies; the same political games; the only thing that changes, is the names of those who are killed and injured. Government officials noted the irony that while Hamas was warning of a humanitarian disaster inside the Gaza Strip, and while the Palestinian Authority was lobbying the world to pressure Israel to keep the Karni crossing open, Hamas was involved in an attack aimed at blowing up the crossing. Arnold Toynbee calls the displacement of the Arabs an atrocity greater than any committed by the Nazis. Other nations when victorious on the battlefield dictate peace terms. But when Israel is victorious it must sue for peace. Everyone expects the Jews to be the only real Christians in this world.
Israel is used to being singled out for unjust criticism and subjected to startling double standards by the United Nations, the European Union, much of the Western media and numerous academic bodies. The people who spawned and espouse Political Correctness and a host of other 'human rights' issues, are today no longer concerned with the truth. They don't give a damn about it. So corrupt have they become in their own 'self idolisation', that neither do they hide their constant approval of the lies that are told by Palestinian and other terrorists.
As relevant today in 2011 as it was when written in 2005: 65% of Palestinians Support Al-Qaeda Attacks in the US and Europe. Presenting the destruction of the Christian-Jewish West as part of Allah's plan comes even from the highest religious powers, and receives the passive sanction of the highest political powers.
There is no barrier (completely encircling) Bethlehem. There is only a fence where the Bethlehem area interfaces with Jerusalem and close to the 1949 armistice line. Only a very small segment of the fence is a concrete wall preventing terrorists from shooting at motorists.
When any organization needs to dispense with truth in order to promote their story and when they must manufacture justification for bloodshed and murder, we have a duty to recognise that true justification for that bloodshed and murder is a lie.

In 1920 Haj Amin el Husseini personally invented what later became known as the Palestinian national movement. He shaped its identity around the sole cause of destroying the Jewish presence in the land of Israel. On November 28, 1941 Husseini met with Adolf Hitler in Berlin. Husseini and Himmler had planned that under German occupation, the Arabs would expand the Holocaust to the 800,000 Jews of the Arab world and the 450,000 Jews in the land of Israel.
She found herself face to face with a knife-wielding Palestinian terrorist from Gaza. And so began a fight to the death between an unarmed 39 year- old mother of four and an armed terrorist in Sde Avraham, a neighborhood in southern Israel's Eshkol region near Gaza. Only Maariv (newspaper) put Yael and her heroic battle on its front page. Yediot Aharonot put it on page 25. As for the foreign press, I didn't read a single word about Marauding, barbaric terrorist murderers who seek out babies in their beds
The millions of Israelis who opposed the withdrawal from Gaza do not seek personal vindication for being right. They didn't warn against the withdrawal to advance their careers or make their lives easier. Indeed, their careers were uniformly harmed. They did it because they were patriots. They felt it was their duty to warn their countrymen of the danger, hoping to avert the disaster we now face. They should be listened to now. And their voices should be empowered by those who shunned them, because only by listening to them will we develop the arguments and the legitimacy to do what needs to be done and stop fighting to lose, again and again and again.
"Analytical interpretations" are merely a type of 'entertainment', whose connection to reality and logic is flimsy. Many of them previously believed in communism, and embittered the lives of many people. Today, they believe in 'Peace Now', and bring all these troubles upon us. Their god is called 'Peace Now' or 'human rights'. This is exactly the sin of idolatry taking one value and worshipping it, without giving consideration to balance with other values. It is generally believed that religious people are less realistic, because they rely more on their faith than on an objective analysis of reality, whereas people lacking faith are able to analyze a situation objectively, and as a result, their short-term assessments are more accurate. If the mainstream Israeli media were honest, they would broadcast the taped recordings of all the leaders responsible for the Oslo Accords and the retreat from Gaza, so everyone could hear their foolish promises, and realize just how distorted their ability to correctly analyze the situation is.
Gaza Strip: "First, the IDF must enter, clean up the terror nests, and destroy the launch sites. Afterwards, Nahal he'ahzuyot [paramilitary settlements] are to be established, which will later be granted civilian status and become flourishing communities that will weaken Hamas. The creation of communities will make it possible to crush the Hamas economic, social, and propaganda infrastructures." The government of Israel must make hard decisions: does it want to placate the international and internal leftist domestic arenas, or to fulfill its duty to its citizens?
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.
