Palestinian Violence: Arafat's Legacy: West Bank Fatah and Gaza HamasThe ideological mentors of the PA/PLO were allies of the Nazis (e.g. Haj Amin Al-Husseini). Arafat, Abu-Mazin, Inc. were trained by the KGB and forged intimate ties with the ruthless Communist regimes in Moscow and E. Europe. The PA/PLO have constituted the role-model of international terrorism, narco-terrorism, hijacking, car-bombing, homicide-bombing, hate-education, inter-Arab treachery, corruption and oppression of Christian Arabs (who have fled Bethlehem, Beit-Jallah and Ramallah). They have introduced an unprecedented hope-driven terrorism, systematically and violently violating all agreements. They instituted a hate-education system (K-12), which has featured a production line of heralded homicide bombers for the next two generations.
1. The Palestinian Authority (PA) and the PLO have been systematic allies of Bin-Laden (whose mentor was the Palestinian Abdullah Naji of Jenin), Taliban, Saddam, Khomeini and his successors, No. Korea and other rogue regimes. The ideological mentors of the PA/PLO were allies of the Nazis (e.g. Haj Amin Al-Husseini). Arafat, Abu-Mazin, Inc. were trained by the KGB and forged intimate ties with the ruthless Communist regimes in Moscow and E. Europe. The PA/PLO have constituted the role-model of international terrorism, narco-terrorism, hijacking, car-bombing, homicide-bombing, hate-education, inter-Arab treachery, corruption and oppression of Christian Arabs (who have fled Bethlehem, Beit-Jallah and Ramallah).
2. The PA/PLO TRACK RECORD reveals the nature of the proposed Palestinian State:
* In the late 1950s, Arafat, Abu-Mazen and Abu-Ala' fled Egypt for subversion;
* In 1966 they fled Syria for subversion;
* In 1970 the PLO fled Jordan, following a violent attempt to topple the Hashemite regime;
* In 1975 the PLO tried to violently topple the Lebanese regime, triggering a multi-year civil war, which doomed the Christian domination of Lebanon;
* During 1978-1981 the PLO plundered and raped South Lebanon;
* In 1990 the PLO spearheaded Saddam's invasion of Kuwait (while the Bush-Baker Administration was brutally pressuring Israel to recognize the PLO!);
* Aware of PLO's subversive track record, Arabs do not allow the PLO to bear arms on their soil;
* Since (Oslo) 1993 - when the PLO was snatched out of oblivion, imported to the heartland of Israel and provided with weaponry - the PA/PLO have been consistent with their inter-Arab track record. They have introduced an unprecedented hope-driven terrorism, systematically and violently violating all agreements. They instituted a hate-education system (K-12), which has featured a production line of heralded homicide bombers for the next two generations.
3. LEOPARDS DO NOT CHANGE SPOTS, ONLY TACTICS.
4. A Palestinian State would undermine U.S. VALUES AND INTERESTS. The 1976 Entebbe Operation and the 1981 bombing of Iraq's Ozirak Nuclear Reactor dealt a blow to global terrorism. The establishment of a Palestinian State would be perceived as a reward to the role model of terrorism, dealing a blow to the US war on global terrorism. It would condemn Jordan's Hashemite regime to oblivion, would recharge Saddam's and Taliban's allies in Iraq and Afghanistan, would bolster Iran and Syria and would facilitate the re-entry of Russia to the Mideast.
Composing educational materials for children on world events requires simplifying some political complexities. The recent efforts of two major news agencies to provide kids' primers on the Mideast conflict, however, go beyond oversimplification to outright distortion, encouraging impressionable young people to absorb, as elementary truths, the great myths of Israelis as land-hungry war-mongers, and Palestinians as their hapless victims.
The BBC has a popular online site called 'Children's BBC' (CBBC), a colorful news and education portal for kids and their teachers.
CBBC has a special section on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The homepage first explains 'Who is Fighting?':
The troubles in the Middle East are mainly between the Jewish Israelis who live in Israel, and the Arab Muslims, who used to own the land Israel now controls.
So from the very outset, children are informed that at the heart of this conflict is the supposed 'fact' that Israel 'took' Arab Muslim land. This is, of course, patently false. At the time of UN partition in 1947, more than 70 percent of the area that would become Israel were public lands officially held by the British Mandatory authorities. (An additional 8.6 percent of lands were purchased outright by Jewish organizations or individuals.) Even in the present-day West Bank, most lands were not owned by local Arabs at that time, but were rather deemed 'crown lands' or held by absentee landowners.
(If one wishes to go back further to, say, the Roman era depicted in Mel Gibson's new film, one should notice that no Palestinians and no Muslims even existed at the time.)
Back to the 20th century, here's another history lesson from CBBC:
In 1947, the United Nations voted to divide Palestine into two states: Arab and Jewish. The Jews accepted the plan and declared independence for Israel on 14 May 1948.
But the Arabs rejected it, saying it was unfair they didn't get as much land, even though there were more of them.
The historical record clearly shows that the Arab Higher Council and the Arab League rejected the UN partition plan not because of 'unfair land distribution,' but rather because it created a Jewish state, an entity they never accepted. Moreover, 75% of the land allocated to Jews was barren desert (see this map), so in terms of inhabitable lands, the Arabs were offered at least twice as much under the UN plan.
Beyond 1947, more historical distortion from CBBC:
There were other wars in 1956, 1967, 1973 and 1982 - and each time Israel gained more land.
In fact, lands acquired in 1956, 1973 and 1982 (Lebanon) have all since been fully returned, but this receives no mention in a section that paints Israeli history as one big land grab.
Finally, CBBC misrepresents the failings of the Oslo Accords and Camp David:
A new set of peace talks broke down in summer 2000 because the Israelis and Arabs could not agree on the future of Jerusalem - which both sides claim is their own capital.
Kids should know that the breakdown at Camp David was not caused by disagreement over Jerusalem. In July 2000, Ehud Barak offered a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. Yassir Arafat rejected the offer and launched a relentless campaign of terror. As American envoy Dennis Ross concluded, "Chairman Arafat could not accept Camp David...because when the conflict ends, the cause that defines Arafat also ends."
While CBBC is misleading British children, Knight Ridder is doing their part on the other side of the Atlantic...
KNIGHT RIDDER'S KID NEWS
On March 7, Knight Ridder (through their joint subsidiary with the Chicago Tribune) distributed to dozens of American newspapers a Sunday educational supplement called Kid News, inserted alongside the Sunday comics.
The lead article is an effort to explain the history and status of the Palestinian people to American children. But the very title -- "Where is 'Palestine'?" -- presupposes the existence of an Arab state that has never existed. The distortion extends into the lead sentence:
Since the end of World War I, Arabs and Jews have disagreed over boundary lines in the area of the world that was ancient Palestine, with bloody and fatal results.
'Ancient Palestine' suggests today's Palestinians merely want to return to an earlier, 'ancient' state, yet today's Palestinians have no relation to the 2nd century Roman entity referred to here. (The article later acknowledges that "technically, Palestine is not a country," leaving one wondering why they previously suggested is was.) Then Knight Ridder informs kids that this is "Why they are still fighting":
The Palestinians are still pushing for an independent Arab nation of Palestine. Cease-fires have been declared over the years, but the fighting continues.
Hamas and Islamic Jihad are not 'pushing for an independent Arab nation,' but rather agitating for as many Jewish deaths as possible, as well as the complete destruction of Israel. As is, Israel comes off in this narrative as the cruel 'denier' of Palestinian independence, a faulty history lesson indeed.
In fact, terror groups (and their indoctrination of Palestinian children to 'martyrdom') do not appear at all in Knight Ridder's overview of Palestinians, which includes two pictures of cute, young Palestinian schoolchildren. The American child reader is left wondering why these children's lives are so difficult (if not for Israeli 'stubbornness'), and is left uninformed of the culture of hate that inculcates them on a daily basis.
Finally, in describing Israel's security fence, all of six words are granted in its defense, while the Palestinian position receives over seventy words, plus a emotive picture of an Arab farmer.
* * *
BBC and Knight Ridder have an important opportunity to produce materials for children to better understand the Mideast conflict. But by distorting the history of the region, ignoring the legacy of Arab rejection of Israel, denying the reason for peace failings, and omitting Palestinian terrorism, these news agencies do a great disservice not only to Israel, but to our young people, the decision-makers of tomorrow.

So there you have it. The Patriarch Joseph was born in 1683BC. He was set over the Kingdom of Egypt in 1656BC. The Israelite Sojourn in Egypt commenced in 1648BC. Joseph died in 1582BC. The Hyksos were expelled in 1554BC. Moses was born in 1523BC.The Exodus commenced in 1449BC. The Israelites entered Caanan in 1412BC and 480 years later in the 4th year of Solomon the first temple commenced construction in 970 BC.
I am going to make some statements about the USA as might be found in the newspaper of a mythical communist country called, ‘The Democratic Marxist Republic of Californication.’ In doing so, I am going to be making statements that a casual world news observer or internet savvy foreigner might actually consider to be factual based on extensive exposure to western media.
Disciplining yourself to pay attention to the actual words used and the actual meaning of the sentence is very important, especially so since so much of what purports to be news is little more than the writer’s opinion about the facts of the news. Unfortunately, people easily succumb to emotive language such as ‘Donald Trump demonstrates his stupidity again!’ Such a headline is designed to reinforce in the minds of those who don’t like Trump, that he is an idiot. Another thing of which to be careful when reading is the inclination to ‘interpret’ what we read within the context of our religious, cultural and political worldviews.
When you stand to speak you are doing more than reciting words. You are in fact engaged in communicating with an audience your opinions, ideas, feelings, passions and/or knowledge on a subject. They expect you to express yourself with feeling and passion and to actually know what you are talking about. Therefore it is essential that you KNOW what you are talking about – and – show the appropriate body language, gestures, actions and emotions associated with your topic.
The kids used to turn up repeatedly throughout the day just to look at the foreigner, touch him, feel the hair on his (the monkey’s) arms and generally just gawk. China has changed a lot over the years but there have been times when a foreigner in a small town or village would attract huge crowds. Sometimes people would be known to suddenly come upon you, look up at your face and just plain scream! I’m not joking!
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!

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]

Soldiers find bomb on 10-year-old's cart
By Arnon Regular
Israeli soldiers found an explosive charge on a cart pushed by a 10-year-old Palestinian boy at the Hawara road block south of Nablus.
The soldiers released the boy after it transpired that he did not know what was in the bag he was carrying through the barricade.
Abdallah Quran, of the Balata refugee camp east of Nablus, makes a living by transferring bags from one side of the road block to the other. He told the soldiers that every day after school, where he attends the fourth grade, he takes his cart to the Hawara barricade to help invalids and women transfer their bags in his cart, while they wait in line for the security checks.
"Yesterday I came to the barricade as usual and started shouting `who wants to transfer their bags to the other side?'" he said.....
The question is, are we talking about Palestinians (the people) or Palestinian Terrorists.
They teach the children to hate; to desire martyrdom, and use them as bait and FRESH MEAT. Why?
The true answer is I think, plain and simple. It is about personal power - a personality cult thing.
Interestingly enough, those who maintain that Palestine belongs to the Ancient Palestinians (in the same was as Israelis claim that it belongs to Israel), might be interested to check out this link. It shows how the Ancient Palestinians treated Children. http://www.themystica.org/mythical-folk/articles/molech.html
