JERUSALEM. THE CAPITAL OF PALESTINE? FORGET IT!

The Obama Administration is shocked and insulted. Hilary Clinton lectures Israel's Prime Minister for a full forty minutes. The world is in lock down. Israel is taking the heat. President Obama sends Israel's Prime Minister home with an ultimatum.
Over what?
Over Israel's right to build in its capital - Jerusalem.

And why has this crisis been allowed to develop? Because the world has drifted into an appeasement to the Arab argument that the Palestinians can have Jerusalem as their capital.
This condition, apparently, must be surrended now by Israel who will get nothing in return from the Palestinians except their agreement to indirect talks, maybe.

If Israel does not agree to make this gesture they face taking the wrap for the failure of Middle East peace talks.
America, who can't impose sanctions against Iran for their nuclear bomb program,is already threatening Israel.

Countries who have individually and collectively refused to acknowledge Israel as the capital of the Jewish states are falling over themselves to accept Palestinian claims on Jerusalem as their future capital.

What rights do the Palestinians have on Jerusalem?

Because Abdullah of Jordan once built a mosque there hardly counts as a cornerstone of Palestinian heritage.

The Palestinian Authority may claim that, because the Arabs of East Jerusalem want to be part of a future Palestinian state justifies their claim to have this place as their capital city.
Has anyone asked these inhabitants, whose status is hanging in limbo due to iternational indecision, what they would prefer? Well yes, they have. Recent surveys prove that, given a choice between being Palestinian or Israeli citizens, the majority will grab an Israeli identity.

Thi fact has been conveniently ignored or dismissed by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas but also by most of the diplomatic world.

Let's look at the diplomatic world in their ignorance of certain relevant facts.
This is the circle of power brokers who deny Israel's heritage and legal rights to Jerusalem as its capital yet accept Palestinian claims to this place.
None of them have knocked on the door of Nir Baraket. Baraket is the current mayor of Jerusalem. He is ready and willing to open the files to these policy and opinion makers and show them that Israel has every right to develop housing, commerical, and industrial projects on legally owned land within the municipal boundaries of Jerusalem.

Israel conquered no land from Palestinians. Therefore the Palestinian claims to drive Israel back to 1967 borders has no relevance in direct claims between the two entities.

The Palestinians are claiming Jerusalem as their capital in order to gain internationally binding rights to the city only as a precondition to enter into indirect talks, and not as part of any final and binding peace agreement.
In other words, the world demands that Israel surrender significant real estate and get nothing in return.

Would you agree to such a deal? I think not.

So, is there an alternative for a Palestinian capital? Well, there is a solution that is staring us in the face that has not been suggested.
Salim Fayad, The Palestinian Prime Minister, tells everybody that he and the Palestinian Authority are nation building in advance of declaring a virtual Palestinian state some time next year.

If Israel tells him to forget about Jerusalem he will still declare Jerusalem as his capital while operating out of Ramallah.
Ramallah is where the administrative headquarters of the Palestinian Authority is based.
It is a modern city containing the growing Palestinian institutions. It is where all the world come to pay official visits to the Palestinian leaders. It is
also the revered burial place of Yasser Arafat.
It is part of their modern history, given to them by Israel as part of the Oslo Accord that brought the P.L.O. from Tunis to Ramallah. Some consider this a major mistake but we must learn to live with the consequences.

Facts on the ground point to Ramallah as being the natural and obvious location for any future Palestinian capital.

At Passover, Jews worldwide recite the ancient prayer, echoing to us from past centuries when the Jewish capital was destroyed, of a return to Zion.
'Next Year in a Rebuilt Jerusalem'
Jews, and Israel, retain its values and heritage that cannot be denied or replaced by anyone attempting to usurp the cornerstone of our nation's capital.
Not even under Arab, American, or international pressure or sanction.

NEXT YEAR IN REBUILT JERUSALEM !



This Passover, no Jew can recite the ancient prayer NEXT YEAR IN A REBUILT JERUSALEM and support Obama's pressure on Israel to partition our capital.

This, significantly, applies to those who voted for Obama and profess to support Israel.

In his initial flush of victory, Obama pronounced that he supported a unified Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state.
Now he is back-tracking.

Hilary Clinton also professed support for a unified Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel.
Now, with an immoral moral-equivalence to the Jewish State and to the Palestinian Authority she underlined Obama's policy at the AIPAC Conference by saying "The US recognises that Jerusalem is a deeply important issue for Israelis and Palestinians, for Jews, Muslims, and Christians".
Yes, we know that, but where is the unreserved support for keeping Jerusalem as a unifed city and the capital of Israel?

Once the world insisted that no city be divided. A previous Democratic President once declared "Ich Bin Ein Berliner!"
The world, then, insisted that dividing a city politically was a crime. And Berlin was not even the capital of Germany.

Now the Obama Administration insists to do the opposite with Jerusalem. He wishes to cleft it in two in the vain hope that this will contribute to a peace agreement.

We are willing to sacrifce and to compromise on territory. But we have always maintained our values and our heritage when it comes to our eternal capital - Jerusalem.

That is why, this Passover, we insist that any Jew who cannot support us as we draw this important red line in the sand, must remove the ancient prayer from his Seder service.

Do not recite NEXT YEAR IN A REBUILT JERUSALEM for to do so will expose you as a hypocrite.

Britain shoots itself in the foot.

The recent public revelation from Britain's Foreign Secretary, David Milliband, that the British Government has expelled a leading Israeli diplomat over the copying of British passports is worrying on a number of levels.

It has not been proven that Israel is responsible for the execution of a Hamas terrorist in Dubai. There are lawyers of uncertainty over the death of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. The most compelling fact was that the door to his hotel room was locked and bolted from the inside. Hardly a scenario of a planned hit job by any intelligence agency.
No proof, video or forensic, points to any individual or organisation responsible for removing a Hamas killer from the international covert world of terror and espionage.

There was supposed to be close coordination between Israel and Britain in security and intelligence information sharing.
Britain has been the beneficiary of vital classified information provided by Israel that has led to the prevention of a number of terror attacks in Britain.

Now, in a rare public display, Britain has expelled Israel's leading intelligence official in the U.K. from the Israeli Embassy at the Court of St.James.

This act of 'political correctness' is foolhardy and dangerous, not for Israel but for Britain.
Anyone with any knowledge of the workings at the Israeli Embassy know that it is short-staffed and under-resourced.
His removal will reduce the effectiveness of Israel's cooperation with the British authorities over terror threats that include information sharing.

Some cynics are already voicing that Israel now has a vested interest in Britain being hit again by another Islamic terror attack.
"It will teach Britain a lesson about not confronting an ally in the war on terror", someone told me in Israel today.

Only when Britain suffers directly and cruelly does it truly appreciate that it shares the ongoing war that Israel is forced to conduct against radical Islamic terror.
Without wishing for it to happen, it will take painful scenes of death and injury on the streets of London for Britain to realise this awful truth.

Britain has been protected by the intelligence provided by Israel. Now, due to political considerations and their recent decision, Britain has slapped Israel in the face.
More importantly, it has deprived itself of a significant link in the intelligence and security chain that keeps British citizens safe.
It will pay the painful consequence of this action.

This was a political decision, not an intelligence or security one.

Millibrand is a shrewd politician. Clobbering Israel will win him valuable brownie points as he makes a run for the leadership of the Labour Party after Gordon Brown's anticipated loss in the upcoming British General Election.

He knows the colour of his constituents. His announcement in the House of Commons against Israel will play to the Left wing of his party and to the Muslim population who will now see him as yet another dhimmi Jew serving their cause.

Politically, this action against Israel may make sense in Britain.
Security-wise, however, it is a disaster waiting to happen.

The Idiot's Narrative to the ME Conflict

"Israel is guilty of war crimes. It is also guilty of crimes against humanity!"

"Why do you say that against us?"

"I saw a couple of ruined buildings and listened to a Palestinian in Gaza. It is clear to me that Israel deliberately targeted innocent civilians".

"But what about the 500 page report that shows Palestinians launching rockets from schoolyards, firing from among civilians, using mosques to store weapons, using ambulances to transport terrorists, and turning hospitals into military headquarters?"

"The Palestinians say that it's all lies".

"But the report clearly shows photographic and video evidence that this is true!"

"No. That report came from Israel so we cannot accept this evidence".

"So you are telling me that Israel cannot defend itself against attack?"

"Of course you can defend yourself. Just don't attack the other side, that's all..."

Disproving Goldstone.

My first meeting with Colonel Reuven Ehrlich and the INTELLIGENCE & TERRORISM INFORMATION CENTER was shortly after the Passover Massacre at the Park Hotel where, as the founder of the Netanya Terror Victims Organization, I went in search of evidence linking Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian Authority to the ongoing terror campaign in my home town of Netanya.
I wanted this evidence in order to launch an international legal suit against not only the terror group responsible for all the killings and Maimings in Netanya, but also the head of the Palestinian regime.
But that is another story ..

During the subsequent Operation Defensive Shield, the IDF and Shin Bet discovered documents that exposed the operational details, funding, personnel, and linkage between the heads of the Palestinian Authority and the terror operatives at grass roots.

Boxes of documents, educational books that preach incitement to kids, operational manuals, were brought out of the Palestinian-controlled territories and into Colonel Ehrlich's cramped center where a small but dedicated team sorted, translated, and filed the documents.

Much of the material was passed over to security sources for action as it contained invaluable intelligence as to the Palestinian terrorist infrastructure.
Some was put on display to illustrate the impregnation of Palestinian society against Israel, the indoctrination of the minds of its Palestinian children, youth, and civilian population that is far removed from the preparation of a nation for peace.

Statistics and reports are regularly presented and distributed by the Center on all aspects of the Palestinian assault on Israel.

I strongly recommend that you be added to their mailing list. The information you will receive is factual and startling.

Now the INTELLIGENCE & TERRORISM INFORMATION CENTER has performed a major service.

It has produced an almost 500 page report that rebuts the GOLDSTONE REPORT in detail.

Its main emphasis is the in-depth activities of Hamas and its close ties to the other terrorist organizations operating in and from the Gaza Strip.

The report makes for exciting reading as it directly confronts Goldstone's findings on many of the issues raised by the Goldstone Report.

Goldstone Rejects the fact that Hamas is a terrorist organization. It also rejects the fact that Hamas is not the legitimate administrative authority in the Gaza Strip. The Palestinian Authority headed by Mahmoud Abbas is the legitimate authority there.
Because Goldstone makes these two errors, it describes Hamas as the de facto administrative authority in Gaza and all the infrastructure as "civilian objects" which were 'deliberately targeted' by Israel.

The report of the ITIC exposes in great detail the use made by Hamas and all their supporting militant terrorist organisations of hospitals, schools, mosques, and other 'civilian objects, before and during Operation Cast Lead.

It names the mosques, hospitals, schools, and other facilities and details the use and terrorist activities undertaken there.
Their document is backed up by photographic and video evidence, as well as documents secured during the IDF raid into the Gaza Strip.
It makes for enthralling reading and convincing.

Goldstone accepted the lie that "Hamas has nothing to do, directly or indirectly, with the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigade terrorist organization, nor any idea of the tactics used by 'armed groups' operating in the Gaza Strip.
Thus, while it says that the 'Gaza authorities' should respect international law it relieves Hamas of all responsibility for doing so.
So, while Goldstone condemns 'armed groups' for indiscriminate rocket fire at the residents of Southern Israel calling it a 'war crime' it does not directly charge Hamas or any specific terror group in Gaza for responsibility.

The ITIC report exposes this lie in illustrated detail.
It includes photographic and video footage of the senior Hamas political leadership receiving weapons training at an Izz al-Din al-Qassam training base in the Gaza Strip.
It goes into exhaustive detail of the links, connections, and actions of Hamas that firmly ties it to all terrorist activities eminating from the Gaza Strip.

The Goldstone Report states that 'the internal security apparatus of the Hamas administration is completely civilian in nature and not military-operative.
It goes on to state that 'there is no evidence to contradict the civilian nature of the Gaza Strip police.

The ITIC report outlines some of the Hamas personnel that were both members of the Hamas police and security force and also active members of other terror organisations.
It backs up its claim with photographic and factual evidence that exposes Goldstone's lies.

Goldstone rejects or minimizes the extent and significance of Hamas take over of hospitals and medical cent for its ongoing operations during Operation Cast Lead. Neither does it assign responsibility to Hamas for the military misuse made of hospitals and ambulances.
The ITIC report highlights non-medical activities perpetrated by Hamas in Gazan hospitals during the conflict.

The evidence that conflicts with the findings of the Goldstone Report are undeniable. They are a valuable initial tool in countering the misleading statements listed in Goldstone.

The ITIC report deals with Hamas as it applies to Goldstone. They are now preparing a further report that will deal with the IDF military operation in the Gaza Strip during Operation Cast Lead.

I urge you to subscribe to the incredible work being performed by Colonel Reuven Ehrlich and his team at the INTELLIGENCE & TERRORISM INFORMATION CENTER.

If you know if any future visit to Israel from your political representative or journalist could benefit from a visit to the Center and I will be happy to coordinate it with them.

I am trying to persuade Colonel Ehrlich to go on a lecture tour in Europe and the States and bring with him some of the overwhelming evidence from his Center. So far, he is being reluctant to do so, claiming the pressure of work does not allow him time to undertake such a venture.
He is trying to build the resources at the Center as there is an awful lot more documentation and evidence waiting to see the light of day.
