  • Israel’s Democratic Elections :: The Knesset Sits in Jerusalem

    Today is Israel’s national elections. It is part of the democratic process that provides the nation with pride, as they choose the next leadership for the Knesset — Israel’s parliament that’s located in Jerusalem. All citizens of Israel, including Jews, Muslims and Christians, are eligible to vote. It is the ONLY democratic elections held anywhere in the Middle East, including in the “Palestinian” controlled areas. The leadership of the “Palestinian” Arabs has refused to hold elections since 2005, despite promises in the past to do so every 4 years. The current leader of the “Palestinian Authority” (PA) is 14 years into what was supposed to be a 4 year term!
    This same Muslim leadership that refuses to hold elections is the leadership that insists on taking control over Jerusalem. They make promises of peace and security but the facts tell a very different story. In fact, the PA is not unique in their lack of democracy. It is a story that is repeated throughout the Muslim and Arab world.
    In contrast, Israel holds its democracy as a very high value. The country holds elections for Knesset at least every 5 years, with every citizen’s vote counting equally. It is a way of government that was chosen by Israel due to its value placed on freedom. It is also not by chance that Jerusalem was chosen as the seat of the national government. Rather it was chosen due to its centrality as the eternal unified capital of the Jewish People for thousands of years!

  • How’d a Jewish Town End Up UNDER an Arab Jerusalem Neighborhood?
    An amazing discovery in Jerusalem! Jewish artifacts from an ancient Jewish town were found under an Arab neighborhood in Jerusalem. Now, how on earth did a Jewish town end up UNDERNEATH an Arab neighborhood?! Yes, that’s right… It’s because the ancient Jewish Israelites lived in Israel, with Jerusalem as their capital, many centuries BEFORE the Arabs ever stepped foot in the Land of Israel. It was not until the Arab conquest of Israel many centuries later that the Arabs built their neighborhoods on top of the destroyed Jewish towns. Despite all of the lies and deceit of the main stream media, the United Nations and much of the Arab world, Jerusalem has always been the eternal unified capital of Israel!

    Extravagant Hasmonean Burial Estate Discovered in Jerusalem

    In Jerusalem’s Sharafat neighborhood the Israel Antiquities Authority is conducting a salvage excavation prior to the construction of an elementary school. They’ve uncovered a Jewish village from 2,000 years ago, dating to the Hasmonean period. Within this ancient domestic area the IAA has identified a water cistern, rock quarries and a large miqveh (ritual bath). The most significant discovery at the site is an elaborate burial estate chiseled into the bedrock.
    The tomb’s courtyard was lined with a bench hewn from the bedrock, similar to tombs found in the Sanhedriah neighborhood. The bench was presumably used by those visiting the tomb to mourn the dead. Past the tomb’s façade, within the burial cave itself, a number of kochim (burial niches) were hewn into the bedrock of the walls. Out of respect for those buried within, and in accordance with the orthodox restrictions of disturbing burials, the IAA has sealed the tomb.

  • Prayers in Jerusalem as Islamic terrorists continue firing missiles into Israel

    Jews from all over the world have come to Jerusalem to pray for the safety of Israel during the increased terror attacks of the past several days. Over the past few days Israel has been facing an increased number of missile attacks by the Islamic terrorists in Gaza. Hundreds of missiles and mortars have been fired at the Israeli towns and cities that border with Gaza. The terrorists have also fired several long-distance missiles with larger warheads deeper into Israel.
    It is often said that Israel has the right to defend itself against terrorism. However, this isn’t really true. To be clear, Israel doesn’t have ‘the right to defend itself’ but rather it has ‘the obligation to defend itself.’ In addition to the necessary military response by the Israeli Defense Forces, the nation and the Jewish People have turned to Jerusalem. The capital city of Jerusalem is not only the political capital of the country; it is the spiritual capital of the entire Jewish People around the world for thousands of years. It is the focal point of Jewish prayer wherever the Jewish person is in the world. Fittingly then, the Jewish People face Jerusalem, envision Jerusalem and physically come to Jerusalem to pray for the safety of our country and people. This is precisely what the Jewish People have done for thousands of years and continue to do until today. We pray for our civilians who are under fire. And we pray for our dear soldiers who are protecting us!
    We look forward to a true peace in the region, where the enemy and the world finally recognize the TRUTH about Jerusalem and Israel. A time when everyone recognizes that the past, present and future must be based in facts, justice and security. Please help us by SHARING the TRUTH about Jerusalem!

  • To Those Who Tell Israel to Give Away Part of Jerusalem…
    There are those in the world that recommend (and often demand) that Israel give away part or all of Jerusalem to the Muslim Arabs on the “altar of peace.” Their claims (and lies) are that this is necessary, moral and will lead to peace for the Jewish Nation. However, we need to spread the TRUTH — it’s isn’t necessary, it is actually immoral and will never lead to peace. In fact, it will only lead to more war! This article explains more… “The goal of an Israeli victory is not to make Israel loved among her neighbors. Its purpose is to force Israel’s enemies to give up their goal of annihilating the Jewish state.”

    An Israeli Victory benefits both Jews and Arabs

    Article Courtesy: Mida.org

    IDF’s new Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi recently asked the IDF command to prepare the Israeli military for victory. If properly supported by Israel’s top political echelon, it could ultimately translate Israel’s many tactical but inconclusive victories into a strategic Israeli victory that finally ends the conflict between Israel and her hostile neighbors.
    In May 1948, most military experts were convinced that the nascent Jewish state would not survive the onslaught by numerically superior and better-equipped Arab forces. However, the Arabs and the military experts failed to take into account the Jewish people’s determined fighting spirit and improvisation skills. In an unlikely twist of history, the Jewish people, which was for centuries associated with powerlessness, created against all odds one of the world’s finest and most powerful defense forces.

    The tender for turning Jerusalem into the biggest smart city in Israel has been completed. Under the terms of the tender, a millimeter-wave (extremely high frequency) high-speed communications network will be deployed in the city connecting municipal offices, educational institutions, and security cameras at junctions and in parks in the city using bandwidth in the hundreds and thousands of megabits per second. The millimeter-wave network will also serve as a fast and stable infrastructure for smart city applications. The Jerusalem Municipality intends to deploy WiFi services as part of the tender.

    Muslims escalated their battle to control the Temple Mount this week in illegally invading the ancient “Bab el-Rahma,” otherwise known for centuries as the Golden Gate or “Shaar Harachamim”, Gates of Mercy, in Hebrew.

    Friday Invasion

    Hundreds of Arab rioters arrived Friday for Friday prayers on the Temple Mount, broke through the gates and entered the Sha’ar HaRachamim (Gates of Mercy) compound on the Mount.
    They called for incitement against the Jews and broke into a compound that had been closed for 16 years by Israel’s Supreme Court, since it was found out that the terrorist organization Hamas was using the compound. Their screams say it all “with spirit and blood we will redeem Al-Aqsa”.

  • New U.S. Congresswoman :: Anti-Semitic, Anti-Jerusalem, Anti-Reality
    Various leaders of the Democratic Party in the United States continue to spiral out of control on the topics of Jews, Jerusalem and reality. Is this always the case? Certainly not. Is this the direction that the party will continue to move in? We certainly hope not! However, one of the new up-and-coming Democrat Congresswomen, Ilhan Omar, has made her rants and claims quite obvious. She is not just opposed to recognizing Israel’s ancient and eternal connections to its capital of Jerusalem. She has insisted on posting anti-Semitic statements and has gone so far as to demonstrate her disconnection from reality! And, she’s not the only one. This article explains more…

  • Pro-Israel Democrats — What Would This Mean For Jerusalem?

    WASHINGTON (JTA) — Prominent Democrats are launching a pro-Israel group to counter a drift away from Israel on the party’s left.

    “Our mission at Democratic Majority for Israel is to strengthen the pro-Israel tradition of the Democratic Party, fight for Democratic values and work within the progressive movement to advance policies that ensure a strong U.S.-Israel relationship,” Mellman said in a release he sent JTA.
