Here is yet more support for Jews having every right to Jerusalem.
• It is the holiest city for the Jews.
• It holds no religious importance to the Muslims.
• Jerusalem is mentioned over 600 times in the Old testament.
• Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran!
The bottom line, while this video portrays religious reasons the Jewish Capital belongs to the Jewish people forever, and it depicts the Temple Mount as having zero significance to the Muslims religiously, one need only look to wars of the 20th century that the Israelis did not start, but they decisively finished.
Israel-Gaza fighting flares up again
Palestinian terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip fired a GRAD missile at the southern Israel city of Beersheva on Monday night.
The missile triggered Beersheva's air raid sirens, sending local residents scrambling for bomb shelters. The missile landed in an open area and did not cause any injuries or damage.
Israel responded on Tuesday morning with an aerial assault on five terrorist targets in Gaza. At least one Hamas terrorist was killed and five people were wounded in the reprisal.
Gaza-based terrorist forces fired more than 30 missiles and mortar shells into southern Israel in July, prompting a serie of Israeli retaliatory strikes.
Defense officials are warning that it is only a matter of time before another full-blown armed confrontation with the terrorist forces that rule Gaza.
Lebanon to push Palestinian statehood at UNSC
Lebanese FM Adnan Mansour said that recognition of a Palestnian state will be a priority when Lebanon takes over the leadership of the UN Security Council in September, Lebanon's Daily Star reported on Tuesday.
"When Lebanon heads the Security Council in September, one of its first priorities will be to vote in favor of a Palestinian state with Arab states and other countries in the world," said Mansour, according to the Daily Star report.
Lebanon will take over the rotating leadership of the UN Security Council in September.
Economists: Second U.S. Recession, If It Hits, Could Hit Hard
Some economists are worried that the United States is poised for another recession. They warn that a so-called "double-dip," if it comes, could be more painful for average Americans than the 2007-2008 recession. Jobs, incomes, output and industrial production are all weaker now than they were then. One sector that has been hit especially hard is housing.
Food Prices Could Hit Tipping Point for Global Unrest
When food shortages and rising prices drive people to desperation, social unrest soon follows. It’s as true today as it was in 18th-century France. According to a new analysis of food prices and unrest, the 2008 global food riots and ongoing Arab Spring may be a preview of what’s coming.
“When you have food prices peak, you have all these riots. But look under the peaks, at the background trend. That’s increasing quite rapidly, too,” said Yaneer Bar-Yam, president of the New England Complex Systems Institute. “In one to two years, the background trend runs into the place where all hell breaks loose.”
Bar-Yam and his colleagues are hunters of mathematical signals in social data: market trends and economic patterns, ethnic violence, Hollywood movies. In their latest expedition, described Aug. 11 in the prepublication online arXiv, they focus on the 2008 food riots and the Arab Spring, both of which followed year-long surges in basic food prices.
UN's Agenda 21 forcing society back to the Ghetto
Agenda 21’s goals of destroying our economy, control and reduce our population, control our land use, redistribution of wealth, under the guise of protecting our environment. Slowly but surely, they have made great strides across the U.S. with very little opposition or understanding from the population.
UN Agenda 21 has decided that America has too much urban sprawl; we have to cut back, de-grow, and return to the pre-car era of the early 20th century. Kendra enthusiastically says that urban sprawl makes us “suffer economically and in terms of peace of mind.” Who knew that giving up our cars, suburban homes, and moving into high-rise tenements pre-determined and built by supporters of UN Agenda 21, will make us happy and pain free?
The city is aligning with the tenets of Smart Growth, moving people from suburbs, their homes, and their cars, into high-rise ghetto tenements within five minute’s walk or bike from work, shops, school.
And below we see a synopsis of the overall plan:
UN Agenda 21 Smart Growth has five tenets:
- Existing Infrastructure (rehabilitate areas already established in the city) Maybe Americans like living on their farms, why force them into ghettoes?
- Low Auto Dependence (no driving within a community, offering trolley, buses, walkways, bike paths, rails) What if I don’t want to give up my car? What if I cannot bike, walk, take bus, or train?
- High Density (anti-sprawl, plucking us from the suburbs and placing us forcefully into tenements with specific boundaries)
- Mixed-Use, Mixed-Income (multi-income community with multi-problems, disease born by overcrowding and close proximity, schools, supermarkets, retails, pharmacies, and work within the confines of the boundaries of the community; if it sounds Orwellian, it is).
- Whole Community (all this crowding and proximity is supposed to create a wonderful kumbaya sense of togetherness and community) Yes, I remember the sense of community we had in our communist tenements, noise, dirt, disease, everybody spying on everybody else for a little extra food handouts from the ruling elite, beatings, and disappearances.
- After the secret deliberations of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, a Mrs. Powell of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” Franklin responded with no hesitation, “A republic, if you can keep it.” It looks like we are not going to keep our republic, we are headed in uncharted territory for us, a mixture of fascism and communist totalitarianism.
