To the Coordinating Council for Jerusalem, amv"sh
I hope this article will be convincing enough. Agudath Yisroel of America, the OU and the Young Israel alone have the resources to mobilize hundreds of thousand of Jews to speak out for Eretz Yisroel and the Torah. All the other organizations in the Coalition for Jerusalem have strong constituents as well. Let's unite for Eretz Yisroel even if it means to disagree and publicly oppose the policies of the United States of America which is out to destroy Eretz Yisroel. It will be for our mutual benefit and for blessings of all mankind. America will thank us later. Now we have to stand alone if necessary for the Torah and put our trust in Hashem and Hashem alone, and believe that Hashem will come to our salvation.
by Emanuel A. Winston,
Mid East Analyst & Commentator
I was reminded by several incoming Emails that we Jews have been thrown a bone to distract us and it’s called "Jerusalem" for the coming International Conference for "Peace In Our Times" at the Annapolis Naval Academy in Maryland. It’s not that they wouldn’t like to divide Jerusalem at this time but, for their purposes it’s something they can use for negotiations but then give up the JERUSALEM PLOY to get what they really want. It was vital in their planning to get Jewish and Christian supporters of Israel to ignore the planned main take-over and have us focus primarily on Jerusalem.
The "Theys" are (among others) President George W. Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and, especially former Secretary of State James Baker III. Baker learned a lot about us from his State Department Jew-Boys, Dennis Ross, Aaron Miller and Daniel Kurtzer (later joined by Martin Indyk). Baker learned how we think! Jews tend to focus on humanitarian goals and, therefore, are easily misled on other issues. This may be a weakness which our adversaries will take advantage of for the Annapolis Conference.
The Nazis similarly also understood our weakness and our desire to believe the best about other people - even those who were endangering our existence. This inner knowledge of our naivet facilitated their plans for their "Final Solution to the Jewish Question". Therefore, please start to use your Jewish "Sechel" (smarts) to re-construct the meetings and plannings of Rice and her co-conspirators to recruit the Jews to assist in their own demise. The Germans at Wannsee under Heydrich and Eichmann similarly used their understanding of Jewish wishful thinking that people were well-intentioned to ease the way to death camps.
The Annapolis Conference for "Peace in Our Time" is the American version of the infamous Wannsee Conference. The main goal of Rice, Bush - and others - is to divide Israel and build another Palestinian state out of what’s left.
Manipulating us to dwell only on the vital issue of Jerusalem, we would leave the rest of Israel to fall into Muslim Arab hands. Weakening Israel by dividing an already minuscule and vulnerable nation is a definitive obsession for those who have been invited to what amounts to a pre-execution ceremony.
Now that they’ve turned what was once a veritable Garden of Eden in Gush Katif/Gaza into a Global Terror Base, they wish to "move on" to their primary goal of eliminating a militarily strong, democratic non-Muslim nation. Once they have Judea, Samaria, the Jordan Valley and the Golan Heights, it’s just a matter of time before Jerusalem would fall into their hands like a ripe apple.
Who would be clever enough to understand our psychology so well as to lure us into another Nazi-style sucker play? IF we could get the planners under subpoena, we might start to get at the truth. Who understands us? Who studies us? Who are part of us to understand how to manipulate us? The answers to these five questions is a mix of special interests but, all have the same goal.
We could go back to Baker’s Jew-Boys: Dennis Ross, Aaron Miller, Daniel Kurtzer and Martin Indyk. Then there is always Baker himself, presently advising C. Rice and the group dedicated to dismembering Israel. Here we also find former President Jimmy Carter as a selected advisor to C. Rice who brings to the table his pathological hatred of the Jewish nation. Carter is currently making millions by promoting his virulently anti-Semitic, anti-Israel book, which makes him an ideal advisor to Rice for the Annapolis Conference.
We cannot forget the wicked machinations of those un-Jews of Israel: Ehud Olmert, Shimon Peres, Ehud Barak - among others who wish to de-judaize the Jewish nation while they retain political power. As is said, they know what makes us tick! Rice has also been consulting with the Saudis and Mubarak of Egypt as to how to get Israeli and American Jews to negotiate their fate away at the Annapolis Conference.
This unholy gaggle of people have wanted to divide, if not eliminate Israel since her first days. The Jews of the Left never grasped that they too were slated to be eliminated, as indicative of their mind-set. They opened themselves, all Jews and Israel, up for elimination when they ruled that there could be no praise of G-d for the miracle of winning the 1967 Six Day War against three powerful armies. The word: "G-d" could not be mentioned in any official documents.
By waving the danger of losing Jerusalem in our faces, they trick us into ignoring their Greater Plan. They want Israel to be divided into a reservation for Palestinian Muslim Arabs with the unworkable thought they can pacify the Arab Muslims and eliminate terror against the Free West from other Muslim Arab nations. With Hamas and Fatah as heirs to Arafat’s Terror, once Judea and Samaria are in their hands, 3 to 5 million Arab Muslim Palestinian, supposedly the descendants from the 460,000 who left in 1948, will be pushed into those areas by the surrounding Arab nations who now house them in squalid refugee camps. They will ignore any agreements promising not to permit the flooding of what was Israel with 5 million immigrants.
Anyone who believes that the Iranians, Syrians, Saudis, Egyptians, ‘et al’ give a damn about Palestinian Arab Muslims had better start re-thinking their position. To them, the Palestinians were good for one thing only which was/is to keep the Arab Muslim and International pressure on Israel. They want Israel gone - along with the Palestinians. This kind of planning that is doomed to fail is typical of the Arabist U.S. State Department, particularly if it is only Israel who must pay the ultimate price.
The Annapolis International Conference meeting has only one purpose and one purpose only. It is to establish a space to gather Palestinian Arabs, now spuriously said to be in the millions, with a sovereignty and civil rights that heretofore have been refused to them by their brethren and co-religionists in the Arab Muslim nations. No Arab Muslim or Muslim Arab nation has permitted the Palestinians to have passports and citizenship in the country where they’ve settled. Only Israel has offered the Arab Muslim Palestinians more civil rights then they’ve received anywhere else. But, the world and the Muslims spat on the Jews for being generous. Now, Israel is foolishly offering herself on a silver platter as a human sacrifice - just to be divided up at the Annapolis Naval Academy, a name and a place that will become synonymous with Wannsee and the planning of the "Final Jewish Solution".
But, first Jews and Christians must be led to expend their energies on only saving Jerusalem at the expense saving Israel’s heartland, eastern security border and Heights as their primary goals. At the moment, Jerusalem has been decided to be one of the temporary "give-aways".
Any businessman or honest diplomat can tell you, they always come to a negotiation with a few intended "give-aways". The other side thinks they have won points when, in fact, they lost the larger issue, sometimes called the "Trojan Horse". At Annapolis, Jerusalem will be one of those "give-aways" during negotiations to lubricate the transfer of Judea, Samaria, the Jordan Valley and the Golan Heights - all of which includes two-thirds of Israel’s fresh water resources. Once those are in hand, they will come back shortly for Jerusalem and the 1947 borders. (Not the 1948 after the War of Independence in which Israel gained more ground than what had been pre-planned by the State Department and United Nations. The 1947 borders were intended to create a vulnerable Jewish State, surrounded by a hostile Muslim Arab state - including the heartland of Judea and Samaria.) Abba Eban called those the "Auschwitz borders".
Rice has invited every enemy nation and organization who want Israel dead and gone. This includes the Olmert-led Israeli contingent who will offer all the most holy parts of Israel’s Jewish sites as a gift for "confidence-building measures" to Abu Mazen’s Fatah who are presently discussing a merger with Hamas. Whose confidence are they trying to build up? Certainly not Israel’s.
We have been set up like country bumpkins who just came to the Big City. But, we Jews have been set up before. Remember the sign over the entrance of Auschwitz: "Arbeit Macht Frei" (Work Will Make You Free). We were led to believe what they wanted us to believe. You know the rest.
We are being led like the proverbial sacrificial goat - Azazel - into the Annapolis trap. The Arab Muslim Palestinians and the Muslim Arab nations want most of Israel first and can wait a little while for Jerusalem. In the end, they get all (IF) we let them. The maps in their schools, TV, uniforms, stationary, etc. show the new, second state of Palestine covering ALL of Israel with ALL of Jerusalem as the capital for the second state of Palestine.We’ve been lied to by experts but, worst of all, we have lied to ourselves. We usually know what’s coming and pretend it’s not. We Jews have died in the millions - throughout generations by ignoring reality. Rice tells us there will be peace after we evacuate the Land G-d gave us. She ought to know better. She should know how G-d gave Israel to the Jewish people from being raised as a pastor’s daughter. But, her childhood has molded her into a powerful woman who, despite her brilliant intellect, still sees things through a black and white perspective. In her childhood psyche the Muslim Arab Palestinians are her oppressed "blacks" and the Jews are her "whites". How comforting it is for we Jews to be advised by such friends! We know that Rice, Bush and Baker wish us well (ill). We know that Arafat and now Abbas want the best for us. The Saudi Kings, Bashar Assad of Syria, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, Hosni Mubarak of Egypt - all want us to succeed. Yes, indeed, it’s good to have such supporters - especially the U.S. State Department.
Every country or nation who has mistreated, exiled or killed their Jews has suffered a decline and fall. However, that did not help the Jews already dead or exiled by the those nations. They say we are a stiff-necked people. If not, we would have fragmented eons ago instead of trekking onward. We do not have to crumble because the nations have gathered - again - to deliver their "Final Solution" for the "coup de grace" (deathblow) in Annapolis!
Get the word out! Fight hard for Jerusalem but, save most of your energy and contributed protest organizing funds to insure that Israel does not disappear in a deal (hidden or open) at Annapolis. We have proven ourselves by contributing disproportionately to mankind and have no apologies to make. We have given more to the people of the world than most others and yet, we are hated. Now a new generation of Nazi-style Islamo-Fascists wants to destroy one of the miraculous and productive civilizations on this planet while their contribution is ceaseless destruction.
Regrettably, we can do nothing to please the nations except to disappear and this WE WILL NOT DO! If, as G-d had intended, we are to live alone and follow His commandments - So be it! May G-d forgive them, for I cannot

The following was sent by Izzy Kaplan
Israel's Minister of Defense decided to reduce the supply of fuel to the Gaza Strip in response to thousands of rockets launched against Israeli towns over the last several years and especially since Israeli evacuation from the Gaza Strip a year and a half ago. The hue and cry went up from the UN, the "human rights" groups and the "peace camp." It will cause a humanitarian crisis among the innocent civilian residents of Gaza. "Collective punishment" is contrary to the Geneva Conventions, they all pointed out. The Attorney General ordered the government to shelve the plan pending a decision by the Supreme Court. Meanwhile…
Does anyone know that two kassams fell on the Western Negev the other night at about 11 PM?

B"H, "No one was wounded and no damage was reported as a result of the attack."

No wounded.

But do you know what a kassam launching means? It means that the Red Alert siren went off.

It means that children were dragged out of their sleeping beds screaming, because the siren went off, and the parents are racing with them to the shelters.

It means that people in Sderot and the
Western Negev know a kassam is flying, have no clue where it is flying, and are POSITIVE that chas v'shalom it is aimed directly at them.

"No one was wounded and no damage was reported."

Old people cried, young people screamed, babies shrieked, mothers shook.

But there was NO DAMAGE.
Thousands of Kassams have fallen on Sderot since Israel vacated the Gaza Strip … for peace. Excuse me if "humanitarian crisis" has a hollow ring. We know they don't mean us. The "humanitarian crises" the world gets exercised are never ours.

Are our Leaders Losers? Will we lose Judea and Samaria?


CAJL: Conference of Authentic Jewish Leadership

TC: Torah Campaign

October 30, 2007


Are our Leaders Losers? Let's Perfect the World with the Kingdom of our Creator


Protesting the Summit in Annapolis:


There are two Coalitions that I know of to Defend Jerusalem.  The first is the Coordinatiing Council of Jerusalem spearheaded by Rabbi Pesach Lerner.  The Second is called Defending Jerusalem Coalition.  .  While I agree that defending Jerusalem is of great importance, let me suggest that we stay focused on the essence of Jerusalem.  What is the essence of Jerusalem?  Jerusalem is not simply a museum piece of years gone by, of two Holy Temples now in ruin.  Jerusalem represents our vision of the future, of being the City of Peace, the City of G-d where G-d's Law rules all of mankind. Ki Mitzion Tetzei Torah U'Dvar Hashem MeiYerushalayim.   From Zion will Torah  emerge and the Word of G-d from Jerusalem.  All of Israel will ascend to Jerusalem three times a year for the holidays of Pesach,  Shavuot and Sukkoth and the Nations of the world will ascend on the Holiday of Sukkot - Tabernacles.  The People of Israel will bring their presents to the Levites and to the  Kohanim, the Priests from the tribe of Levi descending from Aharon and Pinchus..  They will also share their wealth with the poor the proselyte, the widow and the orphan with great joy and happiness and on the 3rd and 6th year of the Shemittah cycle the poor gets extra. . .  These presents will be actual food and money  that they put aside from their Tithes that they separated after a plentiful harvest.  On these special holidays as well as the first and second, fourth and fifth years they  will ascend to Jerusalem with unsurpassed joy and festivities thanking their Creator for all the blessings that were bestowed upon them.  Where are the origins of these gifts?  It comes from the entire Land of Israel.  It comes from the produce of the Land.  On Tabernacles the Nations of the World will also recognize the beauty of Jerusalem and bring their gifts as well.


Can Jerusalem achieve it's  glory if the Land of  Israel is divided???? How can we talk of only saving Jerusalem when the essence of Jerusalem stems from the holiness of the entirety of the land of Israel.  How can we be silent for the grave and terrible fate awaiting Judea and Samaria, the heart of the Land of Israel, and only focus on Jerusalem.  Pesach Lerner's Coalition is protesting only the Division of Jerusalem.  Have they chosen to disregard the goal of the Summit in Annapolis which is the establishment of a State of Palestine (G-d Forbid ) destroying flourishing model communities in Judea and Samaria and giving the Land to a terror State intent on the destruction of the whole of Israel?.  Knowing Rabbi Lerner and the members of this coalition I am convinced that their reason for not speaking out for Judea and Samaria is simply one of tactics.  They are hoping against hope that if we succeed to save Jerusalem we will stop the State of Palestine as well.  They are counting on the Arabs backing out.  Pesach Lerner and the Coalition members too are against the State of Palestine G-d forbid.  Just ask for their personal opinion.   Clarify their intention.


The second group Defending Jerusalem Coalition has energy that is enviable and powerful.   A leader of this Coalition is Bob Kunst.


How can Bob Kunst be a Gay Activist and an activist for Jerusalem.  (Google Bob Kunst for his Biography). The Gay Lifestyle is clearly against the Torah.  Should be refrain from mentioning the Torah?  How can we refrain from mentioning the Torah and speak of Jerusalem?    The essence of Jerusalem is Torah and a Torah Lifestyle and Holiness.  In Sefer  Vayikra, Parshath Acharei Mos, Leviticus Chapter 18 verse 22 The Torah says "You shall not lie with a man as one lies with a woman, it is an abomination"  In verse 24 the Torah says "Do not become contaminated through any of these, for through all of these the nations that I expel before you became contaminated.  The Land became contaminated and I recalled its iniquity upon it, and the Land threw up its inhabitants.  But you shall safeguard My decrees and My judgments, and not commit any of these abominations - the native or the proselyte who lives among you.  For the inhabitants of the Land who are before you committed all these abominations, and the Land became contaminated.  Let not the Land disgorge you for having contaminated it, as it disgorged the nation that was before you. For if anyone commits any of these abominations, the people doing so will be cut off from among their people.  


You shall safeguard My charge not to do any of the abominable traditions that were done before you and not contaminate yourselves through them; I am Hashem your G-d."  (Stone Chumash)


Unless Bob Kunst clearly rejects the Gay Lifestyle and advocates a lifestyle imbued with holiness what is his purpose to defend Jerusalem. . Success isn't everything.  Winning an undivided Jerusalem is not the goal.  Our goal is where Torah goes forth and the Word of G-d from Jerusalem.  "Ki Mitzion Tetzei Torah U"dvar Hashem MeYerushalyim"


Jerusalem w/o her inner essence is like a prostitute.  Even G-d himself will reject it and ask us who asked from you to trample on my courtyard? (Mi Bikesh Miyedchem Lirmos Al Chatzeroi?)


P.S. Bob Kunst is campaigning for Hillary Clinton for President.  Wasn't it Hillary Clinton that kissed Arafat? 


The following post from chassidus says that not a single soul from the Jewish people will be lost G-d forbid.  If Bob Kunst is fighting so hard to keep Jerusalem there must be a pure Jewish soul in his being.  However, let it not be sullied by living a lifestyle contrary to Torah.

The Truth About Shmita by Avi Shafran INCONSISTENT

As an opinion piece to the JPOST, Avi Shafran, spokesperson for Agudath Yisroel of America writes:
My comment to Rabbi Shafran
Dear Rabbi Shafran, amv"sh
In your article it mentions that this year "100,000 acres are expected to be left fallow in accordance with the Torah's direction".  My question to you is are these fields really open?  If so, let's organize Shemittah picking tiyulim where groups have a fun time collecting produce and then cook up a storm and have Shemittah Kiddushim eating all the yummy food  that was cooked. 
Here is how a Shemittah Tiyul can be arranged.  Let one person be the driver, another person or the driver offer his/her vehicle and another offer to pay gas.  Let all the passengers do the picking.  Kids would have a blast!  It's great for all ages.  Best of all, lets eat!
I believe that the correct way to keep Shemitta is by having open fields and free to pick.  Nowhere do I see that even encouraged.  Why is it only open to Otzar Haaretz?  Why do they put plastic in the ground and import earth from elsewhere and say it's Shemittah LeMehadrin? Where is the spirit of Shabbat according to Rabbi Shafran in the way Shemittah is observed?  It's supposed to be a year of free eating from Jewish fields, and not a year of shortages or a year of Y.N.  (Yevul Nochri) which has become Kosher LeMehadrin.   Isn't that a contradiction of terms?  His article makes it sound like the observance promoted by Agudah is truth.  If it was truth than there is no way that Agudath Yisroel would be Silent regarding the State of Palestine.  Because a State of Palestine is a direct result of not keeping Shemittah properly.  It's a contradiction in terms.  Saying Tehillim is wonderful but to keep Shemittah you need the LAND! To keep tefillin you need a hand and a head.  The Torah was not given to Malachim who have no parents to keep Kibud Av VeAim.  The Torah can be learned in Lakewood but is only can be observed in Eretz Yisroel on physical Land that has Jewish Sovereignty.  Unless Abbas converts to Judaism, the State of Palestine which Agudath Yisroel has yet to publicly oppose will not observe Shemittah.  Isn't it inconsistent to oppose HM (Heter Mechira) which is symbolic selling of the land and yet be complicit with Olmerts real plans to give not even sell the Land of Israel to our enemies?????

Letter to the Members of the Coordinating Council on Jerusalem

Dear Members of the Coordinating Council on Jerusalem, amv"sh
I am extremely fearful regarding this unity regarding Jerusalem only (see your Statement below).  Condeleeza Rice is not quiet about her desire to establish a Palestinian State and is requesting funding from Congress to uproot settlements from Yesha.  Her plan is all inclusive.  It includes almost the entire Judea and Samaria and parts of Jerusalem as well. If we are strong regarding Yesha than by extension, sovereignty over Jerusalem is not even on the negotiating table.  G-d himself would reject Jerusalem if Yesha was turned into a State of Palestine. Speak out  for the entire of Israel and Jerusalem will be saved.  The converse is not necessarily true.
Please read the statement by the United Coalition for Israel, a Coalition of Christians and Jews.  They are not afraid to speak out strongly opposing a terrorist State in Palestine in Judea and Samaria. It's very sad that the Coordinating Council is only about Jerusalem .Why does it only have to be the Christians that are Biblically correct and talk about G-d's given borders? Do we care less than the Christians about our Divinely given patrimony?
Dear President Bush and Vice President Cheney,
I am very concerned that the November Summit promoted by the United States will further destabilize an already volatile situation in the Middle East by weakening both the United States and Israel, our only dependable democratic ally in our war against radical Islam.
Israel has been on the frontline of this war ever since the rebirth of the nation in 1948.  Since then, Israel has defended itself against 5 offensive attacks by combined Arab countries. After the last conventional war, the 1973 Yom Kippur War, which the Arab countries again lost, they have turned to terrorism as their war of choice.
If the United States insists on further dividing the tiny nation of Israel, demanding that they give up strategic land defenses, we will be succumbing to the brutal, barbaric forces that are threatening our Judeo-Christian civilization throughout the world. The global Jihad will have obtained an easy major victory on the Israeli front, demonstrating the collapse of resolve of the great western power, the United States. The culture of hatred and death will have won a decisive battle.
For Israel to give up the security of tangible land in exchange for more promises and future commitments would be a colossal mistake with historic repercussions. To divide Jerusalem,  establish another Arab terrorist stronghold in 95% of Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) and to remove Israeli sovereignty from the Temple Mount, would invite more Gaza-like rocket attacks in the heart of Israel. How would a country that in some areas is only 9 miles wide, ever defend itself against Hamas, Fatah, al Qaeda, Hezbollah, and al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade in its midst?
Backing a Summit that forces such an unrealistic surrender upon our ally, Israel, would discourage other countries from seeking our friendship.
The above letter was taken from the suggested letter by the Unity Coalition for Israel.  I have added the following paragraph.
As a Bible Believer, you must also believe that the Covenant G-d made with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and their future descendants is an everlasting Covenant.  The Roadmap to a State of Palestine is in direct opposition with G-d Given borders to the Nation of Israel and can only result in tragedy as pointed out above.

            4) Mr Tony Blair, Middle East Envoy


Respectable Sirs,

We, the undersigned, approach you to elevate that crucial meeting from the level of political and temporary conveniences – and of showy handshakes and hugs – to the level of establishing true and lasting peace based upon our respective Holy Scriptures: They were not given for the sake of strive and war but rather for brotherhood and welfare of all mankind in honoring the Name of the Creator of all of us.


Hence, we the undersigned, approach each of you specifically with the request to consider the following:


a) Respectable President of the USA, you suggested several years ago the "Road Map" as a directive for establishing peace in the Middle East. Not only that it did not work, it has caused even more problems, quite naturally so. What lead you – as a Christian believer in the truth of the Bible - to suggest the division of the Land of Israel, and even of Jerusalem?  Is that Land your fiefdom of which you can dispose at will? In case you claim that you were guided by the desire for doing justice to the Arab/Palestinian peoples, then, please, tell the Arab nations that they should not (mis)use them as spearhead in their unjustified –and even anti-Koran- war against Israel. Besides, consider Prophet Zechariah 12:3!


b) Respectable King of Saudi Arabia, by taking up guardianship over Mecca, you assumed a role which goes beyond taking care for Saudi and/or local Arab interests based upon willful interpretations of the Koran. You know very well that the latter is in line with the (Hebrew) Bible; stresses the eternal validity of the latter; and even repeats the Divine Promises for the People of Israel to return to its ancient homeland after the Roman exile. As Muslim, you had even been obliged to give shelter to the Jews persecuted by the Nazis, and receive them back into their ancient homeland (as demonstrated e.g. by the King Feisal / Weizman Agreement of 1919) – but instead your dynasty (and the Arab League) adhered to the anti-Jewish slogans of Mufti Amin el-Husseini who even lined up with the Nazis and charged from their Radio Berlin "Jihad" against the Jews [[that is, he did so even before the establishment of the State of Israel!]]. Thus, hatred against Jews and Israel became the core of contemporary Islamic extremism; and threw both Jews and Palestinian Arabs into the abyss of terrible sufferings - handed out as pleasing Allah!

In contrast to that attitude, the Koran stresses

*) The God of Israel and the God of Ishmael is ONE GOD (Sura The Spider, 45; Counsel 14; et al);

*) The words of the Prophets –including the return of Israel-- shall truly be established (Sura Bani Israel, 108; Greeks, 5; Hobbling 31; Believers, 78; et al);

*) Allah wants to be honored by forgiveness and love (Sura The Table, 15-17). – More details in the "Attachment" below.

It is foremost in your hands to lead the Arab/Moslem peoples into that Divine Truth, and consequently to brotherhood, peace, and welfare – or else to throw mankind (incl. the Arab nations) into more wars, and unprecedented suffering. –

May we mention that such required re-thinking would neutralize also the Mullahs of Persia.


c) Respectable Mr. Olmert, Acting Prime Minister of Israel. You received both of us, the undersigned, in your office of the Municipality of Jerusalem when you were its town mayor: you heard our arguments in regard of "Jihadism", and of counteracting that evil device. We stressed already then that there cannot be peace worthy that name as long as the Arab/Muslim peoples are indoctrinated with "Jihad against Israel". Did we talk to you in vain? Do you really think that compromising with "Jihadists" (in whatever garb they appear) will be conducive to establishing trustworthy peace? Jihadists, like any kind of extremists, see compromises and good-will gestures as God-given stimuli to further pursue their goal. If you say you are under the pressure from the Europeans and the USA – please, tell them in plain words that "Palestine" is merely an assault party in the hands of the "Jihadists"; and tell them that we are not willing to play guinea-pig for testing the veracity of illusions (that, in case you are not up to stand for the Words of the Prophets). As the Land of Israel is not President Bush's fiefdom, so it is not given to us to dispose of parts thereof - and even such essential ones as Samaria, Yehudah, and the Golan Heights.


d) Respectable Mr Tony Blair, as the previous Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and now as the EC-Envoy to the MidEast, you are in a position were you can rectify the fateful decision of your country in 1919 to install that Jew-hating Mufti Amin el-Husseini as the "Mufti of Jerusalem"; and let him as self-styled "Grand-Mufti of Palestine" saw his seeds of hatred against Jews. All that in negligence, if not defiance, of the King Feisal/Weizman Agreement (mentioned above) which could have paved the way for peace and brotherhood in the Middle East, and thus in the world. Or, did your country then take to the ancient –Roman- dictum of "Divide and rule"? Whatever the case, fate put you into a position to do your part in rectifying that decision of then; and by doing so being instrumental in paving the way toward true brotherhood and peace.


                                          May our appeal not be in vain.

(Summary of the essay)

Dr. Asher Eder

The ruling wing of Islam has severed its original ties with the "Book" (the Tanakh, Hebrew Bible) and the "People of the Book," Israel. It plays out the idea of Jihad, and the quest of Jerusalem.

In Islamic view, a Jihad can end only with a complete victory - or else with an unreserved admittance that engaging in it was wrong from the start.

The Koran itself suggests this change of attitude, and can help pave the way to mutual understanding and co-operation:

1. it stresses the continued validity of the "Book" – Jonah 38; Table  52; Cow 172;

    Believers 56; Bee 45-47; and others;

2. it recognizes the teachings of the Prophets, even of the  rabbis -  Table 48,

    (notwithstanding Repentance 30-35);

3. it recognizes the peculiarity of Israel and the unparalleled gifts to  its people (incl. the

    Land) – Hobbling 15; Cow 44, 116; Smoke 30;

4. the Holy Land prescribed for Israel - Table 23;

5. it was Allah who settled the Children of Israel there – Jonah 93;

6. Israel admonished to stand firmly on the Torah – Table 73, et al;

7. Israel rebuked for not fighting for her land - Cow 60, 247;

8. David's kingdom [Zion], and Psalms, confirmed, and David being acknowledged as a

    Divine viceroy and judge on earth – Zad 19, 25; Cow 252 [cf. Is. 28:16];

9. the Psalms and the Prophets speak of Israel's return to the land and to Jerusalem, and

    so does the Koran – Bani Israel 8, 105;

10. Israel often harshly rebuked in the Koran, but there is no cancellation of the

      Covenant or of the Promises;

11. on the contrary, the words of the Prophets shall surely be established – Greeks 5;

      Hobbling 31; Believers 76;

12. Muslim should have given refuge to persecuted believers – The Spoils 76;

13. Abraham is called a truly faithful, i.e. Moslem- Imram 60; Pilgrimage 77; Cattle 62;

      likewise the Prophets – Table 48, notwithstanding their keeping Shabbat and their

      direction of prayer toward Jerusalem;

14. Abraham established

      a) Mount Moriah in Jerusalem for Israel - Gen. 22:2; 2.Chron.3:1,

      b) the Kaaba in Mecca for Ishmael - Cow 119, 123

          (yet 1.Kings 8:41-53; also  Cow 171!);

15. Quiblah (direction of prayer) for Muslims to Mecca, and for Jews to Jerusalem

      (Cow 140,143), yet see also Cow 171 - and 1.Kings 8:41-53;

16. Koran admits different religious rites, and urges us to emulate in good works

     (Cow 143; Table 53; Pilgrimage 66);

17. ONE GOD for Ishmael and Israel (The Spider, 45; Counsel, 14);

18. Allah wants to be honored by forgiveness and love - Table 15-17,

     Woman Tested 7; Counsel 14.

19. Rassul Mohammed as the "Seal of the Prophets" (Conf.40), confirms them!


    It is the words of the Prophets which provide the base for true peace

         Democracy, being merely a form of government but not its soul,

                                      should be guided by them.


A B R A H A M ' S     P R A Y E R


When told by the Lord that in spite of his advanced age he would have a son also from Sarah, Abraham prayed (Gen. 17:18):


               "O that Ishmael might live before thee".


Abraham loved both his sons, Ishmael and Isaac, therefore he had to be told:


  "Take now thy son, thine only one whom you have loved, even Isaac..."               

                                                                                              (Gen. 22:2).


The specification "even Isaac," was to tell him which one of the two beloved sons he should bring to Mt. Moriah.


Abraham did not merely pray "that Ishmael might live." He was not concerned that Ishmael would be threatened by Isaac, and would need a special prayer for protection from him.


Abraham was concerned that Ishmael, born from Hagar and biologically the firstborn, might try to bring the whole heritage unto himself, depriving Isaac of God's promise1).


Abraham's prayer that Ishmael might live before the Lord was meant to encourage and guide him to let the spiritual − Abrahamic − inheritance get the upper hand, so that he would be alive in the Divine spirit, and consequently recognize also Isaac's call.


The two brothers and their descendants should not fight over the inheritance rather "compete in good works" as the Koran, Ishmael's guide book, says so aptly2).

Prophet Maleachi (2:19) confronts us with the question:


"Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? Why then are we faithless to one another, profaning the Covenant our Fathers?"


Hence, in the spirit of our Father Abraham, let us pray:


O h    t h a t     b o t h     o f    u s


I s h m a e l    a n d     I s r a e l


m i g h t   l i v e    b e f o r e    T h e e "



1) Ishmael, Abraham's son from Hagar, is the ancestor of the Arab (Muslim) nations;  

    Isaac is one of the three Patriarchs of Israel.

2) Sura "The Table" 53; also "The Cow" 143; "Pilgrimage" 66.
