  • Protecting Israel’s Sovereignty Over Jerusalem From Every Angle
    It is crucial for Israel to protect Jerusalem from every angle. Sometimes the attacks on Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem can be subtle. Sometimes they are political and sometimes technological. Sometimes it is deliberate and sometimes simply a mistake. Whatever the case, we must always be sure to protect the TRUTH about Jerusalem!

    Google Maps ‘Crosses Country Borders’ in Jerusalem

    Article Courtesy: Honest Reporting


    An HonestReporting subscriber living in Jerusalem conducted experiments with various walking routes on Google Maps and discovered that the “country borders” warning was inconsistent over several routes that went through different gates of the Old City. This is indicative of a technical bug rather than a politically motivated policy on the part of Google.
    We are pleased to say that as a result of our contacting Google Maps, the warning that the route “may cross country borders” no longer appears.
    Thank you to Google for taking prompt action.

  • Muslim Reps Cling to Lies, Refuse to Consider Peace With Israel
    The Muslim representatives in the United Nations have declared that any peace proposal made by the U.S. will be rejected out of hand. And why? Simply because they insist on clinging to their lies about Jerusalem and their claims to all of the Land of Israel. The leadership of the Arabs in Israel continues to prove, on a daily basis, that they are not interested in true peace. They have already rejected many overly generous peace proposals made by Israel and the U.S. through multiple administrations. And they plan on continuing this course. Israel has no intention to give up our holy capital, even if the Muslim leadership insists on continuing their course of lies, murder and deceit. Please help us shine the light of TRUTH on Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal unified capital.

    Palestinians: White House Mideast peace plan “dead upon arrival”

    Article Courtesy: CBS News

    UNITED NATIONS — The Trump administration’s long-awaited plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace is “dead upon arrival,” the Palestinian U.N. ambassador said Tuesday. Ambassador Riyad Mansour reiterated the Palestinian leadership’s stance that with President Donald Trump’s unilateral recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on Dec. 6, the United States “lost the qualification to be the only party to supervise the political process.”

    U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said: “Here at the U.N., thousands of miles away from Palestinians who do have real needs, there is no end to the speeches on their behalf. Country after country claims solidarity with the Palestinian people. If those words were useful in the schools, the hospitals, and the streets of their communities, the Palestinian people would not be facing the desperate conditions we are discussing here today. Talk is cheap.”

  • Where Are All Of The “Palestinian” artifacts?
    Anyone who has visited Jerusalem knows that the city is filled with ancient Jewish artifacts. They fill museums throughout Israel. They are discovered every day. Artifacts include sections of buildings, handwritten scrolls, coins, pottery, jewelry, and Hebrew inscriptions, to name just a few. They are the facts of Jerusalem’s past, present and future. However, somehow those who are anti-Israel have tried to promote lies about a nation called “Palestine” with a supposedly long and rich history in Jerusalem. So, where are all of the “Palestinian” artifacts? This article may help give us an answer…

    Regev in east Jerusalem: Palestinians don’t have deep roots here

    Article Courtesy: YNet

    “No matter how deep they can dig, the Palestinians will not find a single Palestinian coin here,” Regev said at a ceremony to launch a preservation project of an ancient Yemenite synagogue in Silwan (Kfar HaShiloach) in east Jerusalem, which was destroyed 80 years ago.
    “This region knew many occupiers and rulers, but no one has succeeded in cutting off the deep roots of the Jewish people. It’s always exciting to walk these streets, where Jews walked 3000 years ago.”

  • Where is the Al Aqsa of the Koran and Where is it Not?
    There’s a mystery that surrounds the location of the Al Aqsa Mosque referred to in the Koran (Quran)… and this mystery comes from a combination of infighting in the initial years of Islam along with compounding lies being promulgated for nefarious and political reasons. This fascinating article explains…

    The Al Aqsa Mosque of the Quran is not in Jerusalem

    This is an article I wrote years ago, that is critical to be read again today by all, in the shadow of the recent Muslim terror attack on the Temple Mount and their riots afterwards…
    A well known proverb says “liars need to have good memories.” The reasoning is clear: a liar needs to remember his own lies and whom he told them to in order to avoid contradicting himself and revealing his mendacity. This rule applies to important issues as well. Jerusalem, for instance, whose holiness to Sunni Muslims is based on a late and political interpretation of a Koranic verse, while to Shiite Muslims it is only the third holiest city, ranked below Mecca and Medina (today the city of Najaf in southern Iraq).
    Early Islamic sources state that the “al Aqsa Mosque” (literal meaning: ‘the farther mosque’), mentioned only once in the Koran, was one of two mosques located near Ji’irrana, a village located between Mecca and Taaf in the Arabian Peninsula (now Saudi Arabia.) One of the mosques was called “al-Masjid al-Adna,” meaning the “closer mosque” and the other ” al-Masjid al-Aqsa”, the “farther mosque.” When the Koran refers to the al Aqsa mosque while telling the myth of the Prophet Muhammad’s night time journey from the “holy mosque” of Mecca to al Aqsa, that is, the “farther mosque,” it is referring to the mosque in Ji’irrana.

  • Muslim Authorities Disturbed by 2,000-Year-Old Jewish Mourning Over Temple Destruction
    The Jewish Nation has been mourning the destruction of the Holy Temples in Jerusalem for thousands of years — long before Mohammad was born or the religion of Islam was created. Not-so-incidentally, this is thousands of years before Arafat and the terrorist organization, the PLO, invented the idea of a “palestinian nation.” And yet, the leadership of the “Palestinian Authority” feels threatened by Israel’s attachment and mourning over the destruction of Jerusalem in biblical times. We turn to you, the truth-seekers of the world to fight the lies and shine the light of TRUTH onto Jerusalem!

    PA protests Tisha B’Av event in Jerusalem

    Article Courtesy: Israel National News

    The PA “foreign ministry” issued a statement denouncing the intention to hold a Tisha B’Av march around the walls of the Old City, a tradition that the “Women in Green” organization has been carrying out for 24 years.
    In its statement, the PA said that this was a “provocative step” aimed at “realizing sovereignty over Jerusalem, the eternal capital of Israel, and uniting the city as the capital of Israel, under the auspices and with participation of a number of Israeli public figures.”

  • Mufti of Jerusalem :: The Definition of Extremism When it Comes to Jerusalem?

    What do you think? Are the statements made by the mufti of Jerusalem the very definition of extremism? Is this the leader of a people who really believe that Israel will give up Jerusalem to terrorists?

    The fatwa, according to Palestinian sources, came in response to an Israeli bill allowing Jews to purchase land in Area C of the West Bank. The bill, put forward by MK Bezalel Smotrich (Bayit Yehudi), aims to change a 1953 Jordanian law that prevents foreigners and non-Arabs from directly purchasing land in the West Bank.

    The explanation for the bill states that it is “unacceptable” for Israeli citizens to be barred from buying land just because they are Israeli citizens.

  • Israel to Welcome Prince William to Our Unified Eternal Capital of Jerusalem

    Israel is always happy to welcome all visitors, including politicians and dignitaries, to our unified, eternal capital city. However, we are NOT happy when someone tries to slap Jerusalem in the face! In an outrageous distortion of reality, the staff of Britain’s Prince William published his itinerary describing Jerusalem as “occupied palestinian territory.” We hope that this doesn’t reflect official policy and will be corrected by his staff quickly. This article explains…

    JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Israeli Cabinet member in charge of Jerusalem has called on the staff of Britain’s Prince William to correct the itinerary for his upcoming official visit to Israel that lists the city as being in the “Occupied Palestinian Territories.”

    “United Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 3,000 years and no distortion in the tour itinerary can change that reality,” Jerusalem Affairs Minister Zeev Elkin said in a statement that also was posted Monday on Facebook. “I expect the prince’s people to correct the distortion.”

  • Next Year in Jerusalem (Bassem Eid)

    Next Year in Jerusalem
    By: Bassem Eid*
    I was born in the Jewish Quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem, under Jordanian occupation. In June 1966, the Jordanian government decided to evacuate 500 Palestinian families, including my family, from the Jewish quarter and to relocate them to Shuafat Refugee Camp, with no clear reason as to why they did so.
    One day before the onset of the 1967 ‘6-Day’ War, I arrived from the Shuafat Refugee Camp to the Old City of Jerusalem, to visit my aunt. The following day, the war had begun and I was 9 years old and stuck at my aunt’s house. I heard shooting and asked my aunt ‘what’s going on?’ She said, it is a war between the Arabs and the Jews. I said, ‘what is a Jew? Are they human beings like us?’ She said no, they eat human beings. I became very afraid.
    Three days into the war, I started hearing in Arabic, via loudspeakers that anyone who wants food, he can go to a specific point where we are distributing food. My aunt asked me if I want to go and bring food? I said no way, they will eat me. She said I will not send you alone I will send you with the neighbors children. Then I went with the neighbors and I found Israeli soldiers, distributing bread, tomatoes and milk. I carried as much as I could and came back to my aunt’s house. I understood the Israeli soldiers were not like the witch in the children’s tale of ‘Hansel and Gretel,’ where they would fatten the kids before cooking them. I realized that my aunt was a liar and that this was no fairy tale.
