  • Jewish man murdered in Jerusalem by Muslim terrorist – Where’s the world’s outrage?

    Yesterday saw the horrific Islamic terrorist attack and murder of a Jew in the Old City of Jerusalem. Yet the world remains silent! Occasional media blurbs mention that someone was killed but usually with some dismissive comments about who he was and why he was murdered. The man, a 32-year-old father of 4 with a loving wife, was murdered in cold blood for the simple reason that he was a Jew. Even worse, his crime was that he’s a Jew in Israel’s eternal, unified capital of Jerusalem. Adding insult to injury, the Muslim terrorist was given a permit by Israel to enter for the purpose of finding work here. As thanks, the terrorist repeatedly stabbed the Jewish victim, who unfortunately died of his wounds while undergoing emergency surgery. While it is no longer a surprise, it remains upsetting and unacceptable that the main stream media and world leaders have been silent on this horrific attack. The Arab leadership will continue to demonstrate why only Israel must maintain sovereignty over the unified Jerusalem. Their terrorism will never make the only Jewish Nation give up on our national treasure and capital city. In the meantime, it is up to us to SHARE the TRUTH about Jerusalem!

    A 32-year-old Israeli who was stabbed in Jerusalem’s Old City multiple times in a terror attack succumbed to his wounds Sunday evening.
    The victim was evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem where he was said to be fighting for his life. Doctors battled for hours to stabilize what was described as an “extremely seriously” condition and despite being operated on, the hospital had no choice but to pronounce his death.
    The victim was identified as Adiel Coleman, a father of four from the settlement of Kokhav HaShahar in the West Bank, who was born in the Keshet community in the Golan Heights.

    New York — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu opened an exhibit at the United Nations on Thursday that presents historical evidence of the Jewish people’s presence in Jerusalem centuries before the Christian era.

    Titled “3,000 Years of History: Jews in Jerusalem,” the exhibit was initiated by Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon and Jerusalem Affairs Minister Ze’ev Elkin.

    Among the archeological finds on display at UN headquarters are a 1,700-year-old seal “belonging to the governor of the city” found in the Western Wall Plaza, a seal bearing the name of King Hezekiah from the eighth century BCE, and a seventh century BCE seal with the inscription “the fifth to Netanyahu, his sons and his relatives.”

    “This is a magnificent exhibit,” the prime minister said. “There is a long history that is being cherished by us and by the friends of the Jewish people and the friends of truth and is being denied by those who seek to erase the history of our people, our connection to our land and our connection to our eternal capital, Jerusalem.”

  • What Would Trump’s Peace Plan Mean For Jerusalem?

    Recent reports describe a new peace initiative between Israel and the Arab world, supposedly proposed by U.S. President Trump. What would this mean for Israeli sovereignty and human rights in Jerusalem? What would it mean to Israel as a whole, in light of the terrorist leaders that continue to educate their children in hate of Jews and the destruction of the only Jewish State in the world? This article provides us with some perspective.

    The Trump Plan – a Regional Disaster

    Article By Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, Courtesy:

    The Sovereignty Movement responds with shock to the reports circulating in the world press about the Trump plan for a settlement of the conflict between Israel and the PLO. The movement expresses the hope that Prime Minister Netanyahu will have the strength to stand up to the Trump administration’s “tough love”, but also warn against any disastrous plan of this sort, which would bring about the division of the Land and the establishment of a terror state in its heart.

    These things were said in response to a report in the newspaper Asharq al-Awsat (“The Middle East”, in Arabic), which presents the main points of the Trump plan, according to French sources. According to this plan, the American president will present a diplomatic plan including recognition of a Palestinian state not based on the ’67 lines, while the Jordan Valley will remain in Israeli hands, the Palestinian demand for a right of return will not be implemented and the Palestinian refugees will be compensated and remain where they are.

  • BREAKING: US Congressmen Experience Similar Abuse Suffered by Jews on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount

    Video appears in the extended article

    An unbelievable – and embarrassing – thing just happened on the Temple Mount, in the heart of Israel’s capital city of Jerusalem. United States Congressmen David McKinley (R) of West Virginia and Scott Tipton (R) of Colorado along with their wives were visiting Judaism’s holiest site in the world, the Temple Mount, when they were detained by the police. Exactly what was their “crime” you might ask? Picking up a small olive twig from the ground! Yes, you read that correctly… One of the gentlemen picked up a twig! Did the honorable US representatives deface property or steal something? No, not at all. In fact, the twig was laying, half dead, on the ground when one of the congressmen innocently picked it up. He had no idea that this could become an international incident, sparking the need for a police investigation and detainment.

    You see, the Islamic Waqf that was granted permission by Israel to “administer” the Temple Mount since the Six Day War in 1967, feels insulted when a non-Muslim does something – anything – that they may construe as religious in nature. Exactly what does that mean practically? Well, the Muslims demand that Israeli police arrest any non-Muslim that tries to pray, bow down or even move his lips in a way that appears to be a prayer. Jews, Christians, Buddhists, atheists and all other non-Muslims are forbidden from bringing religious or non-approved objects onto the Temple Mount. No prayer book, the Bible or even something mundane like an Israeli flag or a Christian cross is allowed to be carried onto the mountain according to the Waqf (and enforced by the Israeli police). The police conduct a full search of non-Muslims who want to enter the Temple Mount, including metal detectors, X-Rays of bags and insistence on removing absolutely everything that may be construed as religious. Prior to ascending the site, police read off the “rules” where they explain the long list of things a non-Muslim is not allowed to do. Of course, Muslims are allowed to do any and all of these things. Did you know that a Jew isn’t allowed to take a sip of water on the Temple Mount, for fear that he or she may say a blessing over it? Did you also know that Muslims – and all other faiths, for that matter – are permitted to pray and bring whatever they want (aside from weapons, of course) to the Kotel (Western Wailing Wall) and everywhere else in Israel?

  • Head of ‘Palestinian Authority’ Tries to Deny Jerusalem’s Jewish Identity

    The leader of the ‘Palestinian Authority’ (PA), Mahmoud Abbas, has tried everything in his power to deny Jewish history in Jerusalem. At times it’s laughable and other times it’s insulting. Sometimes it’s just outright bizarre. The PA has proven time and again that it has no intention to create peace with Israel or provide free access to the holy sites of Jerusalem. They have proven that they are not to be trusted with any part of Jerusalem. In a recent speech the head of the PA simply leaves out any reference to the Jewish Nation’s ancient roots in the holy city. Well, it’s our job to call him out on this ridiculous attempt at denying the facts of history! The Jewish People have been in Jerusalem longer than the Muslim religion has even been around! Jerusalem has been the capital of the modern State of Israel for nearly 70 years and the eternal unified capital of the Jewish People for 3,000 years! Please help us SHARE the TRUTH about Jerusalem!

    US peace envoy blasts Abbas for failure to mention Jerusalem’s Jewish connection

    American Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt on Thursday slammed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for failing to mention Judaism’s connection to Jerusalem in a speech this week.

    Speaking at the Jerusalem Capital of Muslim Youth 2018 festival in Ramallah on Tuesday, Abbas repeatedly emphasized that Jerusalem was a city for Muslims and Christians, without mentioning any of the city’s extensive Jewish history.

    “Pres. Abbas states about Jerusalem: ‘it is Arab, Muslim, and Christian.’ And makes no mention of any Jewish ties. Nothing peaceful or productive can come from statements like this,” Greenblatt said in a series of tweets.

  • Is Israel Using Archeology and Facts to ‘Modify’ Jerusalem’s History?

    This one would be funny if it weren’t so scary… The European Union has actually claimed that Israel is trying to “modify the historical narrative” of Jerusalem. And how do they say Israel is doing this? By showing the world the truth and archeology — literally the facts on the ground in Jerusalem!

    EU Slams Israel for ‘Touristic Settlement’ of Historic Jerusalem

    Article Courtesy: United With Israel

    By: and United with Israel Staff

    A European Union (EU) report leaked to The Guardian expressed ire over Israeli tourism development in and around Jerusalem’s Old City, calling ongoing Israeli infrastructure improvements a form of “touristic settlement.”

    The EU Heads of Mission in Jerusalem issued a report warning that the development of Israeli tourism in the ancient City of David, currently located within a Palestinian neighborhood, and a planned cable car that would transport tourists to the Western Wall (Kotel), which is within the Old City, were “a political tool to modify the historical narrative and to support, legitimize, and expand settlements.”

    The report asserts that the projects promote the “historic continuity of the Jewish presence in the area at the expense of other religions and cultures.”

    The Europeans, through votes at international forums, have repeatedly denied the Jews’ connection to Jerusalem.

  • Ancient Wooden Beams of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount

    The ability to touch the ancient history of Jerusalem and understand its connection to Israel is one of the spectacular aspects of the city. This article about the wooden beams from the Temple Mount, where the first and second holy Jewish Temples stood, helps us appreciate Israel’s connection to her eternal capital.

    New Year for the Trees, New Life for Ancient Forgotten Beams

    The Ancient Beams of the Temple Mount

    The Al-Aqsa Mosque has been renovated a number of times throughout its history. Notably, after a massive earthquake caused major structural damage to the mosque in 1937, a lot of work was done to strengthen the building, and a number of wooden beams were removed, many of which are now in the Rockefeller Museum in East Jerusalem. In the 1970s, more wooden beams were removed from the Temple Mount and some were sold to a merchant in Ramallah. Some Israelis actually purchased these beams and sent them for Carbon 14 and dendrochronological (tree ring) dating at the Weizmann Institute. Most of the beams were found to be from cyprus trees or cedar trees from Lebanon and some were oak from Turkey. While the vast majority of tested beams dated to the Byzantine period (6th century CE), some of the beams date much earlier. There are two beams in particular that date to the First Temple Period, one of cyprus dating to around the 7th century BCE, and one of oak dating to around the 10th century BCE according to the C14 tests.

    So how did these early beams end up in the Al-Aqsa Mosque? Wood was expensive in ancient times, so builders would use what was available to them. Many of the beams measured over 14 meters and were made well and of strong wood. Consequently, they were used over and over again. One of the beams from the Al Aqsa Mosque carbon dates to the early Hellenistic period but also has a Greek inscription from the Byzantine period. It seems this beam was in at least tertiary use in the mosque, and we are grateful that this reuse of material preserved it for us to study now.

    The beams offer a fascinating historical record of Jerusalem, including Byzantine buildings, early Muslim houses of prayer and, not inconceivably, the ancient temple complex itself. Unfortunately, the several hundred existing beams have never been studied in depth, and many are in danger of decay and disintegration.

  • European Union to Side With Terrorists When it Comes to Jerusalem

    Ignoring facts and reality, European Union officials have promissed to cave into terrorist demands for Jerusalem. The head of the “Palestinian Authority”, Mahmoud Abbas (aka Abu Mazen), has been trying to circumvent actual peace negotiations with Israel in an attempt to bolster his lies and deceipt. However, he has come to realize that the PA’s tactics no longer work with the United States. So, he continues to grasp for Jerusalem by using the EU. As we always say, the truth must always shine through. Despite all of the lies, the deceipt and resolutions, Jerusalem is and will eternally remain Israel’s unified capital.

    EU promises to back Abbas’ demand for Jerusalem

    Article Courtesy: Israel National News

    The European Union pledged its support Monday for Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas’ vision of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.

    On Monday, PA chairman Abbas met with European Union Foreign Affairs High Representative Federica Mogherini in the EU capital in Brussels, in a bid by the PA leader to win recognition for Palestinian statehood from the 28-member European body.

    The trip, which coincides with Vice President Mike Pence’s three-day visit to Israel, is part of a larger effort to circumvent the US, the traditional broker of PA-Israel negotiations, and push to take a more active role in the Middle East.

    Jerusalem: Jewish and Muslim Claims to the Holy City

    Article Courtesy: Aish

    The Jews of Israel are currently locked into a conflict with their Palestinian Arab neighbors. While the media bombards us with constant reports of violence in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, there is no doubt that the epicenter of the conflict lies in Jerusalem and more specifically on the Temple Mount in the Old City.

    Jewish Spiritual Connection to Jerusalem

    To understand the Jewish connection to Jerusalem we must begin with the Jewish Bible. From the Jewish perspective, the area of special holiness is Mount Moriah, today known as the Temple Mount. This area is located beneath the platform on which the Muslim Shrine, the Dome Of the Rock, now stands.

    In the Jewish Bible, Jerusalem has many names: Salem (Shalem), Moriah, Jebuse (Yevuse), Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), and Zion (Tziyon). The most common term for the city, Yerushalayim, is mentioned 349 times in the Jewish Bible, while Tziyon is mentioned an additional 108 times.

  • There’s Only ‘The Truth’ When it Comes to Jerusalem

    In a day and age when some people try to pretend that truth is subjective, that there’s something called “your truth,” it’s important to stand up for facts and reality. Certainly, when it comes to Jerusalem there’s only “the truth” and any attempts to invent “your truth” must be challenged. Facts and reality are the basis for truth and these are our best weapons in the struggle for truth.

    5 Facts That Prove Jerusalem Was NEVER A Muslim Holy City Or An Arab Capital!

    Article Courtesy: The Jewish Press

    Let’s play a game of association.

    What is the first thing that comes to mind when I say JERUSALEM?

    If your answer was “Holy City”, then you are either Jewish or you believe in the Jewish connection to the city of Jerusalem. If you are Christian, Jerusalem is holy to you because Jesus, who was a Jew, lived there. Therefore, it is holy as the Jewish capital and the home of the two Jewish Temples that stood in Jerusalem.

    If you are a Muslim, I am sure you are probably offended by the mere suggestion that Jerusalem was NEVER a Muslim holy city or an Arab capital of any kind, but since you cannot hurt me or blow me up, you’re going to have to face these historical truths and be content with writing violent reactions in the comments section below.

    5 Facts To Prove Jerusalem Was NEVER A Muslim Holy City 1. The Quran While Jerusalem is mentioned in the Bible (Tanach) over 500 times, it is NEVER mentioned in the Quran, not once! Many Muslims claim this is a lie and claim the word Al Aqsa means Jerusalem. Al Aqsa literally means “The Farthest Mosque” and in no way does it mean Jerusalem.
