First the Saturday People~Now the Sunday People

Nearly one million Jews were driven out of Muslim lands in the 1940′s and 1950′s, having all of their property and valuables confiscated by the Muslims. Now the same thing is happening to the Christians in the Middle East and no one is doing anything about it.

* Thanks to Bare Naked Islam Blog for this excellent post!

Avi Lipkin 1~Islam & Muslims in Europe

Denis Avi Lipkin, AKA Victor Mordechai has written books on Islam and has strong opinions. In this clip, David asks Avi to answer a question regarding Europe: What have you learned about Islam and Muslims in Europe?

[1] Regarding mention of his arrest in Switzerland on 12 October 2009, for talking about the threat of Islam symbolized in the minarets (just before the minaret ban vote). You can read the entire story at Gates of Vienna, or in German on Politically Incorrect. Avi Lipkin was convicted on 16 January 2011, of “inciting hatred or discrimination against a person or a group of persons on the grounds of their race, ethnic origin or religion”.

[2] Below the video are links and information about the kidnapping, and forced conversion and marriage of Coptic Christian Girls in Egypt. It has been going on for years--yet the world is silent.

Here is a video outlining the plight of Coptic Christians in Egypt--including personal statements from those being attacked. Once the Copts were 85% of the population, now they are less than 10% and under constant persecution. Unless the world takes a stand they will be ethnically cleansed by the radical Muslims whose goal is Islam throughout the world.

Lets Blame the Jews...

Pat Condell speaks bluntly and straight out--he does not hold anything back.  There are very few people  who are capable, comfortable or brave enough to speak the truth so honestly and succinctly. It is a bit odd to hear a self-proclaimed atheist speak out loud and strong for Israel--but speak up he does--and he speaks the truth.

The San Remo Mandate: Israel's Right to the Land

The 1920 San Remo resolution answers a fundamental issue that plagues the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks: whether Israel has a right to the land...The San Remo Agreement gave the entire area to the Jews and urged the world community to help them settle it (Article 6). This agreement was signed by 51 members of the League of Nations, and it supersedes the 1947 UN resolution regarding Israel. Listen and Learn...

Bulgaria Fights Back...

In cities all over the world Islam is attempting to "take over" streets by laying out their mats and conducting their "prayers". Ordinary citizens are often blocked from going to their homes and places of business.

Well, this past Friday, when the Muslims began their "take over", Ataka, the new Bulgarian nationalist political movement, decided to fight back. They started blasting Orthodox Christian religious chants at eardrum shattering levels. When the Muslim "call" shrieked out they were responded to with Church Bells...You can't make this stuff up!

The PA are Apparently the "Owners" of History

If you want to know why there will never be peace with the "PA", listen to this. Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) provides ongoing proof of the hatred and incitement that stems from the Arab world towards Israel and every free, democratic country. Here is the transcript of the clip:

National reconciliation [between Hamas and Fatah] is required in order to face Israel and Netanyahu. We say to him [Netanyahu], when he claims--that they [Jews] have a historical right dating back to 3000 years BCE--we say that the nation of Palestine upon the land of Canaan had a 7000 year history BCE. This is the truth, which must be understood and we have to note it, in order to say: 'Netanyahu, you are incidental in history. We are the people of history. We are the owners of history

JNF Part 5 of 5: The Huleh Valley

The Huleh Valley is and agricultural area in Northern area with abundant fresh water. Is serves as a bottleneck stopover for more than one billion birds as they migrate annually from Europe to Africa and back. Over four hundred species of birds must cross this tiny strip of land. As anyone who has lived on a farm knows--this is hard on crops. Israel has resolved this problem by establishing a "restaurant" for these birds. Every day they feed them with about two tons of corn seed! Amazing!

Come with us to visit Nachal Alexander, a 32-km river that flows from the West Bank city of Shechem (Nablus), passes by Tul-Karem, crosses the Hefer Valley, passing near the coastal city of Netanya before reaching the Mediterranean Sea. This once polluted water source has been cleaned up thanks to the help of JNF~The Jewish National Fund in Italy and France. 

They also created a model to give access to those in Israel who are mobility impaired. See how  easy it is to create a friendly, accessible park for all people to enjoy!

Canada Will Surely be Destroyed from the Inside!

This is the kind of mentality that is trying to take over in Canada. At 3:16 she calls Canada an occupying state--it is indigenous territory. Regardless of what questions she is asked, she will not give a direct answer. If people don't realize what is happening these useful idiots will have chaos rule in no time. Like a broken record she can only repeat the same meaningless sentences. At  4:40 the interviewer tries to get her to clarify but this moonbat  just rambles on about the rules need to be clarified. He asks over and over if she wants open borders and there is no answer.  Neither she nor the group she is speaking for recognize Canada as a legitimate entity!! Wow--and she lives in Canada!

Canada--this is your future~May God have mercy!

Our Israel~JNF 2 "Shrinking" The Negev

...the Negev will be the test of the Jewish People and the Jewish State--or only through the concerted effort of a people that volunteers and a state that plans and acts will we be able to meet the mighty task of, greenlng and settling the wilderness. This effort will determine the, fate of the State of Israel and the place of our people in the history of mankind...David Ben-Gurion

This is the 2nd in a five part series that we have produced focusing on how the work of the Jewish National Fund~JNF  in Israel. Most people know about the planting of trees, but did you know that JNF is also working with Israel on water conservation and the "greening of the Negev"? JNF has been helping to create water reservoirs in the Negev. Olive groves, vineyards, cactus fields, and huge fish farms have contributed to make the Negev to be the only desert in the world to be shrinking! Friends of JNF in England, South Africa and America have invested in Action Plan Negev.

A Prayer Request for Bin Laden?

Maybe it is me, but I think this is just crazy...What do you think?

Our Israel~1: JNF Trees~Growing Strong

This is the first of a series of short films produced by Israel Vision that we will be posting on life in Israel. Our goal is to show the world what Israel really is. The media (often biased) is not able to show the reality. A reporter who flies in, stays in a hotel and meets a few people is unable to see below the surface. People in other countries, and sadly some who even live here, have no idea of the amazing things that  make Israel special. We hope over time that you will see the wonder that is Israel. 

Do let us know if you have a special topic or area of Israel you would like hear about.

The Jewish National Fund (JNF) is known for  planting trees in Israel. To date they have been responsible for over 240 Million trees across the country. Israel is the only country in the world whose forest are "increasing"...

The Jerusalem Myth of Two Cities

Honest Reporting investigates the issue of the Media Myth of Two Cities of Jerusalem, including interviews with Jewish refugees from 1948.

How the media report on Jerusalem has a tremendous impact on public policy. The Palestinian Authority is claiming that Jerusalem--including the Old City--will be "restored" to Arab control as capital of their new state.

The media stubbornly clings to the notion that there are two separate cities of Jerusalem, East and West, and that the eastern half, including the Western Wall in the Old City, lacks Jewish legitimacy. This is a direct lie put forth by the Arab world in its attempt to de-legitimize Israel and their claim to the land.

The Real Nakba~The Jewish Nakba

The true nakba (catastrophe) is the continued failure of the "Palestinian" Arab community to accept Israel's existence as a Jewish state, and to make peace.

The term "Jewish Nakba" refers to the persecution and expulsion of Jews from Arab countries in the years and decades following the creation of the State of Israel. The Jewish Nakba was a long line of slaughters, of pogroms, of property confiscation and of deportations against Jews in Islamic countries.

This chapter of history has been left in the shadows~downplayed~ignored.  

The Arab League rejection of the 1947 Partition Plan and its resulting attack and war against the new born state of Israel was responsible not only for the estimated 500,000 Arab refugees, but also for the 1,000,000 (1 Million) Jewish refugees who were driven out of Arab countries after all of their property and assets were taken.
 
We are inundated with the plight of the Palestinian refugees, yet little to nothing is said about the Jews who fled from Arab states. Many of their communities dated back 2,500 years. Throughout 1947 and 1948 these Jews were persecuted~Their property and belongings were confiscated~There were anti-Jewish riots in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and Iraq--In Iraq, Zionism was made a capital crime!

Approximately 600,000 Jews found their way to the State of Israel. They were destitute,  but they were absorbed into the society and are an integral part of the state. 

The truth is that an exchange of populations took place between Arab and Jewish refugees, but, where the Jewish refugees from Arab countries became full Israeli citizens, the Arab refugees who fled their homes (at the instructions of their leaders), have remained "refugees" to this day, unaided by the Arab countries hosting them. Israel closed its "refugee camps" giving citizenship to the Arabs within.

Little is heard about the Jewish refugees because they did not remain refugees--they became full, functioning, contributing members of society.

You can learn more about their story at the excellent Blog, Point of No Return. Do go there and read the stories, watch the videos, look at the pictures--then ask yourself these questions: 
~ Why,  after 63 years does the UN still support 5 Million "Arab Refugees" when thier own neighboring Arab countries will not even allow them the most basic of rights?, and
~ Why, when Israel already absorbed Jewish and Arab refugees does the world demand they turn their tiny slip of land over to those who declare openly that their goal is to destroy Israel?

The Jews Were Brought to Palestine for the "Great Massacre"

"Restoring Courage" Event~ In Jerusalem?

This morning YNet carried this video with an article explaining that media figure Glenn Beck will hold a rally to "restore courage" in Jerusalem this August. Beck said the aim of the rally is to "stand together with Israel" and "to show the world what living a life of faith and honor really means".

While he well known to "go for the gusto"--staging a rally in Jerusalem is indeed a wee bit far out. It will be interesting to see what becomes of this...

Amazing Dance Troupe~HaKol Petuach~Part 8

...And God said let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life.  And fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven...

The girls were so excited to use their feathery wings to "fly" across the stage. Delightful!

One of the most wonderful things about the evening was that everybody volunteered their time and resources. From the filming to create the backdrops, the voice of "God" as well as a few songs by the singer Adam, the artist who created the paintings "live", even the purchase of canvas and paints--given freely and joyfully. All came together eagerly to help these beautiful children with their performance. The love and giving of these children is so open and free. As Mayor Nir Barkat said in his opening remarks, this group truly shows that in Jerusalem , Everything is Possible!

The Secret Files of the Inquisition~A 4-Part Series

The Inquisition was used to enforce Catholic Orthodoxy around the world for hundreds of years. The meticulously kept records of the Inquisitors were locked away for centuries. Finally in 1998 the Vatican opened the archive of the Holy Office of the Inquisition on a limited basis.

Based on these previously unreleased secret documents, The Secret Files of the Inquisition reveals the true story of the Catholic Church’s  ruthless, attempts to remain the world’s only religion.  After watching the following series one has to wonder what was Not released!

This four part series  is a description of a time in history when fanaticism brought horrors upon all people and dragged the world into a dark age that would remain for centuries. One sees how those in power, when that power is threatened, move to eliminate any who disagree with their opinions.

The Secret Files of the Inquisition~Episode 1~Root Out Heretics
Although the Church of Rome proclaimed itself the only true religion, heresy took hold, causing the pope to declare holy war, even against other Christian followers. Inquisitors were sent to exterminate the heretics by hunting down, then condemning them to burn at the stake. In 1308 the entire village of Montaillou was taken prisoner by the Inquisition. No one was safe.

Jacques Fournier who conducted the final inquisition, eventually became a Cardinal and seven years after that he became Pope Benedict XII. It is interesting to note that Joseph Ratzinger, the current Pope Benedict XVI, in November 1981, became Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, previously known as the Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Roman and Universal Inquisition (from which come the names Roman Inquisition or Holy Inquisition).
Part 1 of 4

Secret Files of the Inquisition: Episode 2~Tears of Spain
In Iberia (not yet known as Spain) Christians, Muslims and Jews lived in tolerance for centuries until 1468. A young King (Ferdinand) and Queen (Isabella) proclaimed themselves Catholic Monarchs and instituted their own Inquisition. Thousands perished in a ritual called the act of faith. When the head inquisitor was assassinated In Zaragossa a wave of reprisals began. Perhaps those who suffered the most were the Conversos, Jews who had been forced to convert to Christianity. They were accused of secretly sabotaging the Christian faith but the truth was that many had became jealous of their success and chose to denounce them,  which resulted in their torture, death or expulsion. And of course the confiscation of all of their earthly goods which were shared between the church and state. Because Ferdinand and Isabella, did not want to give any power to Rome their personal "Spanish Empire" Inquisition took hold and resulted in a darkness that would grip the land and last for centuries.

Part 2 of 4

Secret Files of the Inquisition: Episode 3~The War of Ideas
Venice was home to many new ideas, including the dawn of medicine. New ideas, however , were considered to be against the church--satanic. In 1522 the decadence of a Medici Pope in Rome caused a devout priest named Martin Luther to take action. In the wake of this Protestant Reformation, a fanatical monk decided to exterminate all heresy. Impressed by the power of the Spanish Inquisition he adopted the same tactics. His path to power resulted in the Roman Inquisition. In 1559 Pope Paul IV created his Index Librorum Prohibitorum (List of Prohibited Books). Powerful leaders of the Catholic Church were soon arrested and imprisoned, accused of reading books banned by the Church. Free-thinking students, including those who had an interest in science and medicine were silenced. Jews were particularly targeted--all of their Holy Books and Commentaries were burned, except the Tanach, which was known as the "Old Testament". Darkness descended on all the centers of learning. The Roman Inquisition left a legacy that lasted into the twentieth century. Indeed, their list of "Prohibited Books" was not formally abolished until 1966!

Part 3 of 4

Secret Files of the Inquisition: Episode 4~The End Of Inquisition
In Bologna, Italian Jews were confined to ghettos, forbidden to associate with Christians, own property, attend University or travel freely--all these laws were enforced by the Inquisition. Napoleon wanted to spread the ideas of the Enlightenment, and tore down the walls of the ghettos giving the Jews freedom. He conquered Italy, abolishing the Inquisition and ordered its files sent to Paris. When a Jewish boy was kidnapped on 24 June 1858, his devoted father would spend the next twelve years fighting to get his son back. The secret files of the Inquisition had been locked away for centuries, but one Spanish priest devotes his life to exposing the brutal records. Spain's greatest painter,  Francisco de Goya, was called before the Inquisition for painting a nude woman. When he made a painting depicting the horror of the Inquisition Trials he had to flee for his life.

In 1908 the Holy Office of the Inquisition was changed to the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith.

Yom HaZikron 2011~Remembering the Fallen

Today at 11:00am the world stood still in Israel as the sirens sounded throughout the country. 

It is very emotional to see traffic on highways and roads everywhere pull to the side as passengers get out to stand to attention. Buses are no exception. Drivers pull over, open the doors and everyone stands respectfully.

Yes, there are those without respect--but they are the minority.

Ceremonies are held, candles are lit. It is custom that members of units that have lost soldiers, go to the homes of the families to spend the day with them. Each year the number of names on the list of fallen increases as terror attacks continue. Those that hate do not make exceptions for civilians, even babies.

Everyone wears the Israeli version of the Flanders poppy, the Everlasting Red Daisy, in their lapel--usually on a white shirt.

Speeches are plentiful and tears flow freely. This is a tiny country that has been constantly attacked since the day of its founding. A country whose citizens have made an unprecedented contribution to the world, yet whose people are continually vilified and attacked. A country, that no matter how many good deeds they do are called apartheid, racist and many other unsavory things. 

Let us pray, that one day, the world will finally decide to just let Israel be.

This is Amsterdam~07 May 2011...

Take a close look. The black flag of Islamic Jihad along with the calls of Allah hu akbar. Read the signs calling for an Islamic Caliphate, The West's puppets will fall-Islam will prevail...just what will it take for the west to wake up and smell the coffee? Meanwhile, I am sure the UN is busy drafting another sanction against Israel...

The Truth About Reconciliation With Hamas

While the world is popping corks over the "reconciliation" of Hamas and Fatah, there are those who know the reality of this facade. One of those is Yuli (Yoel) Edelstein, who is currently  Minister of Information and Diaspora in the Netanyahu government. He reminds us of the true facts.

Excerpt from the Hamas Charter:
The day of judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees.
There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors.

Message to the Palestinians~رسالة للفلسطينيين

Are you interested in Truth? Here it is. Please watch and listen...


Egypt's Christians Are A Dying Population

Coptic Christians in Egypt, a majority for over 1,000 years have dwindled to a mere 13% and falling. They are now much worse off then before the fall of the Mubarak government. This is due to the fact that Islam is stepping into power. While the Copts are determined to fight for their rights, many, in fear for their lives are fleeing, and  the few left behind are under constant attack. 

As this report from CBN shows, once the Muslim Brotherhood is in charge Egypt will become a complete Islamic State. The USA, UN and EU are either showing extreme naivety--or blatantly ignoring the gradual cleansing of Christians from the Middle East. With their combined "quality"  education and degrees, one would think they could apply some logical thought to see the obvious...

In Syria~You Protest and We Kill You

This film shows how Syria deals with those who do not toe the party line. What is interesting is that around 1:45 a man says in Arabic "We're not Israelis--Why are they shooting us like we are Israelis?". You see, in the Muslim world, shooting Israelis is like swatting a fly. That in itself is disturbing. Even more so is that the USA, UN and EU have remained steadfastly reserved on issuing any condemnations or taking actions--except for Libya where they are assisting the rebels--who are backed by and include Al Quaeda. 

Compare this milk-toast reaction to the world outcry that went up when Israel announced that it had approved "one stage" of a plan to build apartments for Jews--plans which had begun many years before, to build in areas that are part of and will remain part of Israel. I'll bet the UN is right now busily drafting up more sanctions against Israel.

Holocaust Remembrance Day

Today as we returned from the post we heard the sirens. All over Israel, everything stops. People, stood silently at attention--as we did while facing towards the Old City of Jerusalem--with only the sirens and the knowledge from memories.

Each year there are fewer survivors to remind us about man's inhumanity to his fellow man. The stories are fewer, the memorial services shorter, the interest waning. As the survivors leave us the memory of the unspeakable horrors grows dimmer--it is easy to forget.

Throughout the world there are growing numbers who carry signs accusing Israel of apartheid, genocide, Nazi crimes and much worse. The only democratic country in the entire Middle-East where all faiths worship freely without fear, where women have equal rights, where gays have their annual parades and where Arabs have more rights than in their own countries. There are no refugee camps in Israel--they all exist in Arab countries because he Arabs refuse to let their brothers have any rights at all. Yet, all over the world people cry boycott, wipe them off the map, we need more ovens. Even Jews (at least they claim they are Jews) are part of this travesty. Evil has taken hold and the world is spinning out of control. 

Be informed, take the time to learn from the past...Never Forget...

A Visit to the New Mamilla Mall

The Mamilla Mall (Pedestrians Only) is located just outside the Jaffa Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem. In this clip, Israel Vision TV takes you on a tour of some of the interesting items you will see there. Filled with shops, and cafe's with wonderful views it is an interesting stop on your way in or out of the Old City of Jerusalem.
