Yom Hashoa :: Jerusalem’s Muslim Grand Mufti’s Collusion with Hitler
Many Muslim radicals and their apologists claim that the barrier to peace in the Middle East is Israel’s Jerusalem and “settlements” since the Six Day War in 1967. What they conveniently neglect to mention is that their absolute hatred for the Jewish People started decades before Israel reunified Jerusalem from its Arab conquerors and well before there was even the re-establishment of Israel in its historic homeland. The Muslim Grand Mufti of Jerusalem met with and colluded with Hitler in 1941 when he visited Germany. The two worked hard together on plans to exterminate the Jewish People. The Muslim leader of Jerusalem, Sayid Amin al Husseini, establish Arab Nazi soldiers with a plan to destroy the Jews of the Middle East. However, obviously G-d had other plans and led the Jews back to Israel and helped us re-establish Jerusalem as our unified eternal capital. Read more here…

The Holocaust: The Mufti and the Führer (November 1941)

In 1941, Haj Amin al-Husseini fled to Germany and met with Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Joachim Von Ribbentrop and other Nazi leaders. He wanted to persuade them to extend the Nazis’ anti-Jewish program to the Arab world.
The Mufti sent Hitler 15 drafts of declarations he wanted Germany and Italy to make concerning the Middle East. One called on the two countries to declare the illegality of the Jewish home in Palestine. Furthermore, “they accord to Palestine and to other Arab countries the right to solve the problem of the Jewish elements in Palestine and other Arab countries, in accordance with the interest of the Arabs and, by the same method, that the question is now being settled in the Axis countries.”
In November 1941, the Mufti met with Hitler, who told him the Jews were his foremost enemy. The Nazi dictator rebuffed the Mufti’s requests for a declaration in support of the Arabs, however, telling him the time was not right. The Mufti offered Hitler his “thanks for the sympathy which he had always shown for the Arab and especially Palestinian cause, and to which he had given clear expression in his public speeches….The Arabs were Germany’s natural friends because they had the same enemies as had Germany, namely….the Jews….” Hitler replied:
Germany stood for uncompromising war against the Jews. That naturally included active opposition to the Jewish national home in Palestine….Germany would furnish positive and practical aid to the Arabs involved in the same struggle….Germany’s objective [is]…solely the destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere….In that hour the Mufti would be the most authoritative spokesman for the Arab world. The Mufti thanked Hitler profusely.

Accessing Jerusalem is About to Get Much Smoother
The trials and tribulations of providing smooth access to any country’s capital city is a major ordeal. However, when that capital is thousands of years old and special to three major religions in the world — the task can be monumental. Such is the story of Jerusalem. Luckily, Israel understands the importance of providing revolutionary access to Jerusalem for everyone. This article gives us a wonderful update on Israel’s modern access to the ancient capital…

High-speed Tel Aviv-Jerusalem rail coming down the track

After donning a hardhat, safety vest and construction boots, I recently got a personal peek at the future high-speed railroad linking Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
This rail line will revolutionize travel between the country’s two biggest cities, bringing residents and visitors into the heart of Israel quickly for work or leisure.
Currently it takes about an hour to drive the approximately 60 kilometers (37 miles) northwest from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, though traffic jams often lengthen the trip. An old scenic train route chugs along from the remote southwest corner of Jerusalem, winding around the hills and making several stops before reaching Tel Aviv two hours later.
When it opens in the first half of 2018, the high-speed route will take less than 30 minutes, including a stop at Ben-Gurion International Airport. It will service Tel Aviv’s existing four railway stations and a new transportation hub alongside Jerusalem’s Central Bus Station and light-rail stops.
The fast train is the biggest Israel Railways projects in the past decade and one of the biggest infrastructure projects in modern Israeli history, costing the government just under $1.9 billion. Nine bridges and four tunnels enable as straight and flat a route as possible.
“The bridges are up, the tunnels are dug; now we’re working on the electro-mechanics and putting down the rails,” says Israel Railways spokeswoman Batsheva Segev Landau at the Israel Railways Visitor Center in Sha’ar Hagai.

Israel’s Morals and Ideals Emanate From Jerusalem
The people of Israel understand that our morals and ideals of goodness emanate from Jerusalem. Helping others, especially during this Pesach (Passover) season, is an essential ideal for the nation. It therefore makes perfect sense that this care package campaign takes place at the President’s Residence in Israel’s capital of Jerusalem.

PREPARING PASSOVER PACKAGES FOR THE POOR AT THE PRESIDENT’S RESIDENCE
For the third year in a row, Israel Prize laureate Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman, the founder and dean of the Migdal Ohr educational network, brought a team of volunteers to the President’s Residence in Jerusalem on Monday to prepare Passover care packages for the poor and the needy.
Three large tables arranged in an open rectangle were piled high with products for the holiday, including toiletries, matza, oil, canned foods, potato flour, matza meal, rice, tea, coffee, wafers, sugar, salt, diapers, “Bamba” snacks and more. Among the volunteers were soldiers, members of President Reuven Rivlin’s staff, black-coated hassidim and youngsters from Migdal Ohr institutions.

New Sheriff in Town at the UN :: What Will This Mean For Jerusalem?
The new United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has been a much needed bright light in a very dark place. She has clearly declared herself and the U.S. as a ‘new sheriff in town’ that has already come to the defense of Israel, truth and justice. This is just the right combination that we look forward to when it comes to the crucial topic of Jerusalem. The good people of the world who seek truth and fight for justice look forward to Ambassador Haley’s standing up for the facts of history, the present and the future of Jerusalem as Israel’s unified, eternal capital!

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley Interview with Dan Senor AIPAC Policy Conference 2017
Article and Video Courtesy: UNWatch.org
Full Transcript below the video:
Dan Senor: It’s no secret that there are few places in the world where Israel is more constantly and unfairly attacked than at the United Nations. The woman we are about to hear from is determined to change that.
In January, she gave up her position as governor of South Carolina to represent the United States at the United Nations, because she knew she could make a difference. And although she’s only been at the U.N. for two months, she’s already making her mark, speaking out against attacks on Israel and standing in the proud tradition of past ambassadors like Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Jeanne Kirkpatrick.
Less than two weeks ago, Ambassador Haley once again responded to an attack on Israel, demanding that the U.N. retract a report that viciously and outrageously attacked Israel as an apartheid state. And her action had impact. Soon after, the secretary general required retraction of the report.
Following a recent U.N. Security Council meeting on the Middle East, Ambassador Haley came out to the press and articulated some plain truths. Here’s what she said, quote, “The discussion today on the Middle East was not about Hezbollah’s illegal buildup of rockets; it was not about the money and weapons that Iran provides to terrorists; it was not about how we defeat ISIS; it was not about how we hold Bashar Assad accountable.” Ambassador Haley said, and I quote, “Instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East.”
And she closed her statement by saying, quote, “I’m here to say, the United States will not turn a blind eye to this anymore.” I think you’d all agree that this has been a pretty refreshing change.

If Jews Are Jerusalem’s Indigenous People, Where Are The Arabs From?
The Jewish Nation’s claim of sovereignty over Jerusalem is proven time and again. However, the “Palestinian” Arabs continue to pressure the world to accept their lies in the face of all of the facts. So, where then, are the Arabs from if they’re not the true indigenous people of Israel’s capital? This article gives us a wonderful insight…
AP Report On East Jerusalem Arabs Contains Hints As To Their True Origins
Article Courtesy: Israellycool
The AP reports how more east Jerusalem palestinians are applying for Israeli citizenship. And while the report seems to endeavor to show both sides of the issue, it can’t hide the fact that Israeli citizenship comes with rights for the Arabs.
But there is actually another aspect of this report I wanted to focus on.
“Palestinians who have sought a passport said they had to be pragmatic.”
“I didn’t want to lose my right” to live in Jerusalem, Ruba Mueller, a descendant of the city’s prominent Nashashibi clan, said of her decision to become an Israeli.
Married to a German, the 37-year-old Jerusalem native feared that without the shield of citizenship, her extended stays in Germany would enable the Israeli authorities to strip her of her Jerusalem residency.
“I was born here, I am a Palestinian,” Mueller said. “I don’t want a visa that says I’m a tourist.”
Palestinian officials said east Jerusalem’s globally recognized status as occupied territory won’t change if more Arab residents get Israeli passports.
“The city will be liberated one day and these citizenships will mean nothing,” said Adnan Husseini, the official in charge of Jerusalem affairs in the Palestinian Authority.”
Let’s have a closer look at their origins.
The Nashashibi clan
According to Wikipedia:
“The Nashashibis are reportedly of Kurdish, Turkmen or Arab origin (as their name being the equivalent of fletcher in English may indicate). They first became notable and prominent in Jerusalem with the advent of Prince (of the army) Naser al-Din al-Nashashibi who migrated (or led a military contingent ?) to Jerusalem from Egypt in 1469 CE.”
In other words, Ruba Mueller, the woman quoted in the report and claiming she is “a palestinian,” is descended from elsewhere in the Middle East, with her ancestor reportedly migrating almost 400 years after the destruction of the second Jewish temple.

President Rivlin meets delegation of ‘Christians For Israel – International’

President Reuven Rivlin this morning (Tuesday) met with a delegation of ‘Christians For Israel – International’, led by the organization’s chairman Dr. Leon E. Meijer.
President Rivlin welcomed them and told them of his family’s long history in Jerusalem, and of their arrival in the early 1800s. He said, “We came to return to our homeland, and we were welcomed by the people of Jerusalem, Muslims, and Christians, and Jews. In 1856, already the majority of Jerusalem was Jewish. Many of the Jews who came were returning to Zion, not just to the Land of Israel, but to Jerusalem.”
He said, “I remember as a young child going to the Western Wall with my father to hear the Shofar blown at the end of Yom Kippur – even though the British did not allow it. Today,” the President told them, “as we celebrate 50 years since the reunification of the city of Jerusalem, the State of Israel stands firm behind the importance of freedom of religion, and Jerusalem is a city in which everyone can worship God according to their beliefs.”
The President concluded, “Jerusalem is a city which can unite people. Jerusalem is a microcosm of all our ability to live together, all faiths, and all communities.”
Dr. Meijer thanked the President and told him about the work of ‘Christians For Israel – International’. He said, “We are based in the Netherlands, but we have people from all over the world”. Dr. Meijer presented the President with the organization’s ‘Jerusalem Declaration’ which he noted reaffirmed that, “We believe in a unified city of Jerusalem, from where peace will come forth, and we will continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.”

How can internal instability in Jordan help Jerusalem?
Mounting inteligence shows internal instability in Jordan that may be an opportunity for Israel. If Israel can form a strategic alliance with the Hashemite Kingdom, Jordan may have an invested interest in dropping its attempt at re-writing the history of Jerusalem and other areas of Israel. Jordan has been using Jerusalem as a pawn in its relations with Israel by ridiculously claiming that the Jewish Nation has no history in Jerusalem… could this finally come to an end? Could this lead to a peaceful arrangement by repatriating the Arabs of the area with their country of Jordan?
Reports: Jordanian Kingdom’s Collapse Imminent
Article Courtesy: Jewish Press
Israeli ambassador to Jordan Einat Shlain was pessimistic about the situation in the Hashemite Kingdom when she briefed IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot last October, according to a report in Ha’aretz Wednesday.
Citing an anonymous senior Israeli official, the report said the chief of staff later told a closed forum that he was disturbed by the ambassador’s assessment and that the IDF should be ready to support King Abdullah II should things get out of hand across the Jordan River.
Israel has been urging both the Obama and Trump administrations to support Jordan economically and militarily, which has absorbed more than a million Syrian refugees since the beginning of the Syrian civil war. But despite the increase in American support, Ambassador Shlain was worried about mounting opposition to the king outside his relatively small camp of Bedouin loyalists, who number less than 20% of the population.
Pundit Daniel Pipes, who returned from a week’s visit in Jordan, wrote in the Washington Times on Tuesday (Jordan at the precipice) that, on top of its strategic troubles, faced with the relentless threat of ISIS and the collapse of trade relations with both Syria and Iraq, Jordan continues to suffer from the unresolved core issue of identity.
“As a country of massive and repeated immigration for over 100 years (even exceeding the numbers going to Israel), [Jordan] has received waves of Palestinians (in 1948-49, 1967, and 1990-91), Iraqis (2003), and Syrians (since 2011),” Pipes notes. “The Palestinians, most estimates find, constitute a substantial majority of the country’s population, present the deepest division. It’s common to speak of ‘Jordanians’ and ‘Palestinians’ even though the latter are citizens and the grandchildren of citizens. As this suggests, the sense of being separate from and superior to the mostly tribal peoples of the East Bank has not diminished over time, and especially not when Palestinians have achieved economic success.”

Journalist Changes Mind About Israeli-Palestinian Conflict After Moving to Jerusalem
Article Courtesy: The Tower
Former Huffington Post reporter Hunter Stuart grew up believing that “that Israel is unjustly bullying the Palestinians,” but changed his views about the conflict when he moved to Jerusalem in 2015 to report from there, he wrote in this week’s issue of The Jerusalem Report.
His views didn’t change right away. “I believe Israel should relinquish control of all of the Gaza Strip and most of the West Bank,” he wrote in a post shortly after he moved into the Jerusalem neighborhood of Baka. “The occupation is an act of colonialism that only creates suffering, frustration and despair for millions of Palestinians.”
Stuart regularly found himself getting into arguments. In one case, a roommate suggested that most Palestinians supported terror. Stuart objected to the characterization. The roommate then showed him a 2013 Pew Research poll that showed 62% support for terror among Palestinians. Furthermore, Stuart recalled, “the Palestinian territories were the only place in the Muslim world where a majority of citizens supported terrorism; everywhere else it was a minority ‒ from Lebanon and Egypt to Pakistan and Malaysia.”
While he refused to concede the point, “the statistic stuck with me,” Stuart wrote.
Soon after that incident, the so-called “knife intifada” began, sparked by charges that Israel was threatening Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem. Stuart admitted that his initial reaction was to blame the Israelis for the violence, but the reality of the situation soon became much more real to him.

How does the media attempt to undermine Jerusalem? And what can you do?
Illustrative Image: By Heart of the Bible Contributor. [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons
The left-sided mainstream media often tries to undermine Israel’s history and sovereignty over Jerusalem. They do it with errors of commission as well as errors of omission – and the truth-seekers of the world need to fight back. The British paper, The Guardian has gone so far as to create official guidelines with which they insist that all of their reporters undermine Jerusalem and Israel’s legitimacy. This is brought to light in the article below. Unfortunately, the public that is aware of the lies and attacks often look the other way and simply choose an honest news source. However, it is essential to see what is being said and written and to fight back. You, as the consumer, have the right and obligation to contact the editors and demand that they stop attacking Jerusalem. Since the days of the ancient Israelites, who made Jerusalem their capital, the Jewish People have never and will never abandon the holy city. Make it clear that no amount of lying or slander will be tolerated. They simply can’t erase thousands of years of facts and history. They can never re-define the TRUTH. Most importantly, share the TRUTH about Jerusalem – don’t ever allow honesty be shut down by evil.

Israel’s capital is Tel Aviv, not Jerusalem, The Guardian rules
It’s not only Arabic newspapers that refer to Tel Aviv as Israel’s capital, or dateline their stories from “The Zionist Entity” or “Occupied Jerusalem.”
The British paper The Guardian does not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state either, and, rather incredibly, has decided to anoint Tel Aviv as the capital of the State of Israel.
On Thursday, April 19, the newspaper’s website ran a photo of Israelis on the Jerusalem light rail, with the caption saying that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel.
Apparently in the Friday, April 20 print edition, on page 24, a fuller version of the caption also correctly termed Jerusalem the Israeli capital.
However, in its “Corrections and Clarifications” section on Sunday, April 22, the newspaper published the following “correction”:
“The caption on a photograph featuring passengers on a tram in Jerusalem observing a two-minute silence for Yom HaShoah, a day of remembrance for the 6 million Jews who died in the Holocaust, wrongly referred to the city as the Israeli capital. The Guardian style guide states: ‘Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel; Tel Aviv is’ (Eyewitness, 20 April, page 24).”
Under the newspaper’s style guide section on “Jerusalem” is the following entry:
“Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel; Tel Aviv is (a mistake we have made more than once).”

U.S. President and Israeli Prime Minister Discuss Jerusalem, Shared Values & Cooperation
United States President Donald Trump hosted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House yesterday. They spent a good deal of time discussing many topics, including Israel’s capital — Jerusalem. They discussed the long-standing friendship between both the U.S. and Israel as well as Trump and Netanyahu, personally. Fighting militant Islamic extremism was one of the common threads than ran through their discussion about the many topics that so deeply affect the U.S., Israel and the entire world. One of the important points discussed was with regards to the so-called “Two-State Solution” versus “One-State Solution.” President Trump made it clear that his administration will not pressure Israel toward any specific peace deal – rather, he prefers whatever solution is agreed upon by both Israel and the Arabs. Clarifying this, PM Netanyahu explained that “Rather than deal with labels, I want to deal with substance…” He went on to describe the two important pre-requisites upon which any peace agreement must be based: The Arabs must recognize Israel as the Jewish State, stopping the call for Israel’s destruction; and “Israel must retain over-riding security control of the entire area west of the Jordan River” in order to ensure Israel’s security. President Trump also noted that he would love to see the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem.
