Let us join forces and put our efforts into educating McCain about the The 2 State Solution and how it's equiv. to supporting Nazi ideology in the heart of Israel.
* As an introduction, I would clearly state our position which is that we want a new USA/Israel Foreign Policy that is in sync with G-d's Covenant with Israel. (see below New USA/Israel Policy sent to McCain by Non Jewish groups)
* The Torah clearly states that entire Israel including Judea and Samaria is our birthright and the birthright of the People of Israel.
* As clear as the sun shines in the morning, Israel from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River was given to the Jewish people world wide in 3 legally- binding international treaties - the 1920 San Remo Conference treaty, the Mandate for Palestine1922, and The British American covenant regarding Palestine 1924 - all of which stated unambiguously that Palestine would be reconstituted as a "National homeland for the Jewish people worldwide" based on the recognition of the " Jewish historical ties to that land." Even for the ethically deaf and blind world it's a pretty simple mission to understand.
* The Palestinian Authority is a Palestinian Terror Authority. Here is some very strong evidence!
How did the did the Palestinians respond with the lynching of the 2 Israeli soldiers and the massacre of the 8 Mercaz Yeshiva students? Perhaps we should pass on video clips to them distributed free of charge by PMW.
El-Husseini, the forefather of a Palestinian State, the mufti of Jerusalem was a partner with Hitler (may his name be erased). In Camera Media Report Fall 2008 Issue Page 25, there is a book review of "the Mufti of Jerusalem: Haj-Amin el-Husseini and National Socialism by Jennie Lebel, Cigoja Stampa, Belgrade 2007, Translated from Serbian by Paul Munch.
He was Arafat's uncle.
I personally saw a video of Arafat addressing women and being entertained by a group of young girls speaking with yearning to be a shahida chanting "with blood and tears..." This video was distributed on Capital Hill. If anyone is interested I believe we can get copies made bli neder, G-d willing.
See Camera Media Report Spring 2008 by Rikki Hollander Page 28 "Is Fatah Moderate?"
Also in the Fall 2008 Camera Media Report there is an article entitled "New York Times Discovers Palestinian Incitement. After years ignoring this key topic, Steven Erlanger covers it only after leaving his Jerusalem post for Paris." While Camera praises the Times for shedding important light on the Palestinian hate indoctrination, they are also clear to bring proof that it is not only Hamas as Erlanger has shown, but also the Palestinian Authority that are clearly responsible of hate indoctrination...
More proof that the PA is a terrorist haven:
PM's Office: Money-Transfers to Hamas Is Policy
PM's Office: Money-Transfers to Hamas Is Policy
by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) The Prime Minister's office has admitted, in a letter to the Shurat Hadin Israel Law Center, that it is enabling the transfer of huge amounts of shekels into Hamas-run Gaza.
Asked about this issue by Attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, director of human rights organization Shurat HaDin Israel Law Center, the PM's office replied, "The transfer of funds to the Palestinian Authority in the Gaza Strip takes place with the knowledge of the Israeli government, for diplomatic reasons."
Notably, the letter states that the money is transferred to the PA, when in actuality, Hamas - not the PA - runs Gaza.
The PM's Bureau letter continues, "The money transfer takes place after consultations on the matter with the relevant elements, in which are taken into consideration various possibilities and ramifications of the stoppage of the transfers. At this stage, in light of the conclusion that was reached that it was an Israeli interest that the money transfers continue, it was decided to continue to transfer certain sums to Gaza."
Law Centers Demands Stop to Money Transfers
Shurat HaDin, an organization representing hundreds of terror victims in ongoing global battles against terror funding, had sent letters to the Prime Minister, the Bank of Israel and the Israel Postal Bank, demanding an immediate cessation to the transfer of funds to Hamas.
Israel Launders Hamas Money
A Law Center representative explained that the funds are transferred in two ways: "For one thing, trucks from Arab banks in Judea and Samaria bring new banknotes and shekels issued by the Bank of Israel to the Gaza crossings, where the money is exchanged for dollars and euros smuggled into Hamas under the Philadelphi Corridor from Iran and elsewhere. This means that Israel is essentially laundering Hamas's smuggled money."
Replacing Old With New
"In addition, the Bank of Israel sends Brinks trucks to the Gaza crossings to replace old, unusable shekel banknotes. It replaces the old ones with shiny new ones - and last November, just days after such an exchange took place, the whole world saw pictures of Hamas terrorists holding their Kalachnikov rifles kissing Israeli banknotes with pictures of Yitzchak Ben-Tzvi and Shmuel Yosef Agnon that they had just received as their salaries; they had not been paid in months, and the Hamas government appeared to be on the verge of collapse, when Israel stepped in with this delivery."
"Without these criminal acts," the Law Center writes, "Hamas' financial hold on the Strip would collapse, and thus these measures are directly responsible for shoring up the Hamas control over Gaza and its continued terrorist activity launched from the region."
Shurat HaDin director Darshan-Leitner had sharp words for the government of Israel, saying it "cannot fight against the Hamas terrorist organization with one hand, and continue to secretly finance it with the other. Hypocritically, the Prime Minister demands that governments around the world isolate and and embargo the Hamas terrorists in Gaza, and stop transferring funds to them, while at the same time he authorizes the transfer of Israeli currency into the hands of the enemy. ""There can be no doubt," Darshan-Leitner said, "that the Israeli government's policy of transferring shekels is assisting the Hamas terrorists with their missile attacks on the Negev communities. If the Prime Minister does not immediately halt the currency transfers to Gaza, Shurat HaDin will take all legal means available against the government to bring this terror financing to a close."
Abu Abbas and his role in Terror. Is this our "Peace Partner?" And Kuntar is released in the name of "PEACE?"

The World Should Know What He Did to My Family
By Smadar Haran Kaiser
The Washington Post Sunday, May 18, 2003; Page B02
Abu Abbas, the former head of a Palestinian terrorist group who was captured
in Iraq on April 15, is infamous for masterminding the 1985 hijacking of the
Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro. But there are probably few who remember
why Abbas's terrorists held the ship and its 400-plus passengers hostage for
two days. It was to gain the release of a Lebanese terrorist named Samir
Kuntar, who is locked up in an Israeli prison for life. Kuntar's name is all
but unknown to the world. But I know it well. Because almost a quarter of a
century ago, Kuntar murdered my family.
It was a murder of unimaginable cruelty, crueler even than the murder of
Leon Klinghoffer, the American tourist who was shot on the Achille Lauro and
dumped overboard in his wheelchair. Kuntar's mission against my family,
which never made world headlines, was also masterminded by Abu Abbas. And my
wish now is that this terrorist leader should be prosecuted in the United
States, so that the world may know of all his terrorist acts, not the least
of which is what he did to my family on April 22, 1979.
It had been a peaceful Sabbath day. My husband, Danny, and I had picnicked
with our little girls, Einat, 4, and Yael, 2, on the beach not far from our
home in Nahariya, a city on the northern coast of Israel, about six miles
south of the Lebanese border. Around midnight, we were asleep in our
apartment when four terrorists, sent by Abu Abbas from Lebanon, landed in a
rubber boat on the beach two blocks away. Gunfire and exploding grenades
awakened us as the terrorists burst into our building. They had already
killed a police officer. As they charged up to the floor above ours, I
opened the door to our apartment. In the moment before the hall light went
off, they turned and saw me. As they moved on, our neighbor from the upper
floor came running down the stairs. I grabbed her and pushed her inside our
apartment and slammed the door.
Outside, we could hear the men storming about. Desperately, we sought to
hide. Danny helped our neighbor climb into a crawl space above our bedroom;
I went in behind her with Yael in my arms. Then Danny grabbed Einat and was
dashing out the front door to take refuge in an underground shelter when the
terrorists came crashing into our flat. They held Danny and Einat while they
searched for me and Yael, knowing there were more people in the apartment. I
will never forget the joy and the hatred in their voices as they swaggered
about hunting for us, firing their guns and throwing grenades. I knew that
if Yael cried out, the terrorists would toss a grenade into the crawl space
and we would be killed. So I kept my hand over her mouth, hoping she could
breathe. As I lay there, I remembered my mother telling me how she had
hidden from the Nazis during the Holocaust. "This is just like what happened
to my mother," I thought.
As police began to arrive, the terrorists took Danny and Einat down to the
beach. There, according to eyewitnesses, one of them shot Danny in front of
Einat so that his death would be the last sight she would ever see. Then he
smashed my little girl's skull in against a rock with his rifle butt. That
terrorist was Samir Kuntar.
By the time we were rescued from the crawl space, hours later, Yael, too,
was dead. In trying to save all our lives, I had smothered her.
The next day, Abu Abbas announced from Beirut that the terrorist attack in
Nahariya had been carried out "to protest the signing of the
Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty" at Camp David the previous year. Abbas seems
to have a gift for charming journalists, but imagine the character of a man
who protests an act of peace by committing an act of slaughter.
Two of Abbas's terrorists had been killed by police on the beach. The other
two were captured, convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Despite my
protests, one was released in a prisoner exchange for Israeli POWs several
months before the Achille Lauro hijacking. Abu Abbas was determined to find
a way to free Kuntar as well. So he engineered the hijacking of the Achille
Lauro off the coast of Egypt and demanded the release of 50 Arab terrorists
from Israeli jails. The only one of those prisoners actually named was Samir
Kuntar. The plight of hundreds held hostage on a cruise ship for two days at
sea lent itself to massive international media coverage. The attack on
Nahariya, by contrast, had taken less than an hour in the middle of the
night. So what happened then was hardly noticed outside of Israel.
One hears the terrorists and their excusers say that they are driven to kill
out of desperation. But there is always a choice. Even when you have
suffered, you can choose whether to kill and ruin another's life, or whether
to go on and rebuild. Even after my family was murdered, I never dreamed of
taking revenge on any Arab. But I am determined that Samir Kuntar should
never be released from prison. In 1984, I had to fight my own government not
to release him as part of an exchange for several Israeli soldiers who were
POWs in Lebanon. I understood, of course, that the families of those POWs
would gladly have agreed to the release of an Arab terrorist to get their
sons back. But I told Yitzhak Rabin, then defense minister, that the blood
of my family was as red as that of the POWs. Israel had always taken a
position of refusing to negotiate with terrorists. If they were going to
make an exception, let it be for a terrorist who was not as cruel as Kuntar.
"Your job is not to be emotional," I told Rabin, "but to act rationally."
And he did.
So Kuntar remains in prison. I have been shocked to learn that he has
married an Israeli Arab woman who is an activist on behalf of terrorist
prisoners. As the wife of a prisoner, she gets a monthly stipend from the
government. I'm not too happy about that.
In recent years, Abu Abbas started telling journalists that he had renounced
terrorism and that killing Leon Klinghoffer had been a mistake. But he has
never said that killing my family was a mistake. He was a terrorist once,
and a terrorist, I believe, he remains. Why else did he spend these last
years, as the Israeli press has reported, free as a bird in Baghdad, passing
rewards of $25,000 from Saddam Hussein to families of Palestinian suicide
bombers? More than words, that kind of cash prize, which is a fortune to
poor families, was a way of urging more suicide bombers. The fortunate thing
about Abbas's attaching himself to Hussein is that it set him up for
Some say that Italy should have first crack at Abbas. It had already
convicted him of the Achille Lauro hijacking in absentia in 1986. Prime
Minister Silvio Berlusconi now wants Abbas handed over so that he can begin
serving his life sentence. But it's also true that in 1985, the Italians had
Abbas in their hands after U.S. fighter jets forced his plane to land in
Sicily. And yet they let him go. So while I trust Berlusconi, who knows if a
future Italian government might not again wash its hands of Abbas?
In 1995, Rabin, then our prime minister, asked me to join him on his trip to
the White House, where he was to sign a peace agreement with Yasser Arafat,
which I supported. I believe that he wanted me to represent all Israeli
victims of terrorism. Rabin dreaded shaking hands with Arafat, knowing that
those hands were bloody. At first, I agreed to make the trip, but at the
last minute, I declined. As prime minister, Rabin had to shake hands with
Arafat for political reasons. As a private person, I did not. So I stayed
Now I am ready and willing to come to the United States to testify against
Abu Abbas if he is tried for terrorism. The daughters of Leon Klinghoffer
have said they are ready to do the same. Unlike Klinghoffer, Danny, Einat
and Yael were not American citizens. But Klinghoffer was killed on an
Italian ship in Abbas's attempt to free the killer of my family in Israel.
We are all connected by the international web of terrorism woven by Abbas.
Let the truth come out in a new and public trial.
And let it be in the United States, the leader in the struggle against

Toward A New US/Israel PolicyNew USA/Israel Policy. Non Jews speaking out for G-d's Covenant with Israel. Herb Zwiebon, AFSILet us take our cue from Non Jews who speak up for G-d's Covenant with Israel. Governor Mike Huckabee came out clearly against the 2 State Solution and for Jewish Entitlement. Why can't us Jews do the same?
A "Resolution regarding Israel from Pro-Israel Christian Leaders" signed by over a thousand Christian leaders and urging a new U.S. policy toward Israel is being submitted to Senator John McCain with a request for a meeting with the candidate. AFSI has been working on this project with Rev. James Hutchens, Chaplain and Brigadier General of the U.S. Army (Ret.) and chairman of the Jerusalem Connection, Richard Hellman of CIPAC (Christians' Israel Public Action Campaign), Rev. James Vineyand, whose Oklahoma City church has 3,500 members and Rev. David Welch, who heads up a group of pastors in the Texas region.
To give an idea of the wide geographic range of supportive churches, among those who have signed on are the pastors of the Bible Baptist Church in Fairbanks Arkansas with 525 members, the Northwest Baptist Church in Toledo, Ohio, with 700 members and the Clays Mill Road Baptist Church in Lexington, Kentucky with 2,000 members.
The resolution reads:
WHEREAS, Christian Zionism supports the modern State of Israel as a partial fulfillment of God's covenant promise to provide a national homeland for the Jewish people in anticipation of their ultimate redemption when Messiah comes; and
WHEREAS, These God-decreed covenants have an everlasting validity and relevance for the modern State of Israel; and
WHEREAS, The legal validity of the modern State of Israel has been established by international law in the Balfour Declaration of November 1917, and the British Mandate formalized at the League of Nations in July 1922, the United Nations partition resolution of 1947, the official recognition of the State of Israel by the United States in May of 1948 and Israel's admission to the United Nations in 1949; and
WHEREAS, Since its birth as a nation Israel has been under relentless attack by Arabs and Palestinians whose goal is not peace with Israel but its total annihilation; and
WHEREAS, The various peace proposals advanced by the United States, including the administration's "Land for Peace" to be implemented by a "Two-State Solution," have been historically and factually verifiable failures; and
WHEREAS, These failures have been a result of a dysfunctional denial of the stated goals of Palestinian Jihadists and other Iran sponsored terrorist groups such as Hezbollah to destroy Israel, including the continuing efforts to appease Israel's enemies by requiring Israel to give up land for peace; and
WHEREAS, There can be no realistic expectation of regional peace until Palestinian Jihadists are defeated, disarmed and their terrorist infrastructure dismantled; therefore be it
RESOLVED, That the administration's "Road Map to Peace" with its "Land for Peace" and "Two-State Solution" be deemed unworkable and allowed to lapse; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a serious and engaged consideration be given to a new US/Israel policy that would be comprehensive and practical in dealing with the realities on the ground as well as honoring of God's covenant promises to Israel. (e.g. Please see "The Israeli Initiative").

Like a bird that repetitively bangs against a glass window, administrations for the last forty years have stubbornly pursued the same failed and bound-to-fail policy of "retreat-for-peace." For a core constituency to confront a Presidential candidate with a challenge to the folly that is "received wisdom" is a vitally important first step.
David Wilder of the Hebron Fund writes:
As we approach Yom Kippur, we have received solid information that Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Central Command General Gadi Shamni want to do it again. Give it another chance. 'Return' the 'other side' of Hebron to PA terrorists in uniform. They believe that Fatah forces are preferable to Hamas. (Achikam Amichai and David Rubin from Kiryat Arba were killed just over a half a year ago by Fatah 'palestinian police.)
