Why Jerusalem Should Be Called The JEWISH City That Was Stolen

On the 28th day of the Hebrew month of Iyar (May 16th this year), we will commemorate the reunification of Jerusalem and the return of the holy city to its rightful owners: the Jews.

For those of you who think Jerusalem was ever an Islamic city, read

Prior to 1948, the British passed a law prohibiting Jews from sounding the Shofar at the Western Wall. Jews often smuggled in a Shofar and as soon as the Shofar was blown the perpetrator was detained and arrested. Here is a video of some amazing Jewish heroes who blew the Shofar then and now.

Between 1948 - 1967 the Jordanian Legion occupied the entire West Bank as well as East Jerusalem. During those 19 years, not a single Jew was permitted to pray at the Kotel, let alone sound the Shofar. The Jordanians destroyed ancient Jewish cemeteries on Mount Zion simply because they were over-looking Old Jerusalem. Synagogues and places of Torah study were destroyed and desecrated by the Jordanian legion and Jewish tomb stones were crushed and used by Jordan as military latrines!

Freedom of religion was non-existent and Jews, Christians and non Muslims became second class citizens under Jordanian rule.
When the 1967 war began Jordan made a pact with Israel that it would not join the war.
As with most treaties that Israel signed with Islamic regimes, Jordan was quick to break their promises and attacked Israel together with Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. Israel originally did not plan on liberating Jerusalem despite the fact that Jordan was not allowing Jews to reach the Old City, but when Jordan attacked, Israel had no choice and in SIX days alone, the little Jewish country miraculously defeated 5 Arab regimes that were attempting to destroy her.

Here is the historic video of Jewish soldiers returning to Jerusalem after 2,000 years of exile.

This Islamic Preacher Said The Most Shocking Thing Ever And Is Now Running For His Life!

I had to watch this several times to believe what I was hearing!
My Arabic is not great but I understood enough to know that the subtitles were right on the money.
I am not sure where he got the courage to demand this of the Islamic religious authorities, but this is what I would call "Good news for the Jews!"

Here Is Why If You Are Against Occupation, You Must Demand The Dome of The Rock Be Taken Down

For many of you, when you hear the name Jerusalem, you might think of the Gold Dome building that stands on what is known as the Temple Mount. It's called the Temple Mount because long before Islam ever existed the Jews were ruling the area and that is where the Jewish Temple stood.

The sad thing is, the Gold Dome is not even the infamous Al-Aqsa mosque. The actual mosque is the grey-domed building that is situated to the far right of the gold dome.

See the disputed ramp on the lower right side of the wall?
That was the ramp Israel renovated that triggered an uproar in the Islamic world and resulted in months of terrorism against Israel. The Muslims claimed that Israel was trying to conquer the Temple Mount (can see hear the irony).

They claimed the ramp is going to cause the mosque to collapse. Too bad the ramp is on the other side of the wall and nowhere near the mosque!

If the grey dome is Al-Aqsa mosque, what is the gold one? 

So happy you asked! 
The small grey-dome mosque was originally a small insignificant mosque built by Umar ibn Al-Khattāb sometime after 637 CE. He never intended to use the entire Temple Mount and even invited Jews to clean up the area that was left in ruins since the temple had been destroyed.  

Jerusalem, as a city, is not mentioned in the Quran even once and the name Al-Aqsa simply means the farthest mosque from Mecca. Jerusalem in no way is a holy city to Islam and never served as a center of religious practice. While the Temple Mount is the holiest place for the Jewish religion, the Al-Aqsa mosque (only the mosque, not the city) is considered the 3rd holiest mosque in Islam. 

It was not till 691 CE that Umayyad Caliph gave an order to erect a building on the site of the Jewish Temple. This monstrosity that was built to completely destroy Jewish roots was built after bloody battles that were fought between Muslim factions at the time. The folklore goes that Mohammed was brought up to heaven in a dream (!!!) and the story goes that he went up from Al-Aqsa. Without getting into my non-belief in the Quran, if Mohammed would have actually gone up from Al-Aqsa, don't you think the original builder of the mosque would have mentioned something?!

Generally, Muslims had no problem keeping the original names of the places they conquered and destroyed and the Temple Mount is no different. The Al-Aqsa building was originally called Bayt al-Muqaddas, which in English means the house on top of the Jewish temple! There is no historical dispute over the fact that the Muslims built a dome over Judaism's holiest site. The only debate that exists is if the Jews have a right to demand back what is rightfully theirs.

Below is the sketch of the Jewish Temple and the Dome of the Rock that was built on top of the area.

So the next time you hear a Jew who wants to take down the Dome of the Rock to reclaim and rebuild the Temple, understand that he is not being fanatic or radical, but is just reclaiming what even Muslims admit was ours. 

May the 3rd Temple be built speedily in our day!

5 Top Reasons Why I Celebrate Israel Independence Day (And So Should YOU)

Sixty-seven years ago the world witnessed a 2,000 year old miracle. After 2,000 years of wandering from country to country, after running from persecutions, after being expelled from countries, beaten, gassed and murdered, the Jewish nation came home! 

The Torah, Quran and the NT make it perfectly clear that the Jewish people belong to and in the Land of Israel. 
The Roman occupation of Israel was the beginning of the Palestine lie. After murdering and exiling the Jews from Israel, the Romans renamed the Land of Israel, and specifically the area of Judea, as Palestine. This was done in an attempt to erase the obvious connection between the nation of Israel and the land of Israel. 

Imagine how ridiculous the Arabs would sound if they claimed the Land of Israel doesn't belong to the nation of Israel. If you're looking to get any Palestine activist angry, just show them this picture of Titus's arch.

This picture shows the Romans robbing and ransacking the temple of Jerusalem as they occupied Judea from....the JEWS! 
See, Jews were in Israel long before Islam ever existed and certainly before any Arab claimed to be the indigenous people.

Usually Yom Haatzmaut (Israel Independence Day) falls out on the 5th day of the Hebrew month of Iyar. This year the rabbinate of Israel decided to make it a day earlier in order to avoid any desecration of the Shabbat day. 

Last night, as we finished crying and honoring the 23,320 soldiers who were killed while defending Israel, the mood changed to happiness. I would even go out on a limb to say the feeling was borderline ecstatic as we, the Jewish people, celebrated our return to the Land of Israel and the unbelievable miracle of the State of Israel. After 2,000 years of exile, we have been given an unbelievable gift from God, the return to Zion!

Here are 5 reasons I celebrated Yom Haatzmaut! 

1. The Return To Zion
Every day, three times a day, Jews pray for the return to Zion. For 2,000 years we prayed towards the East as a symbol of turning towards Jerusalem. Praying in Jerusalem was nothing less than a fantasy! When I go to the Western Wall to pray every Thursday night, I am living what generations of Jews only dreamt about! 

Send a prayer and I will deliver it to the Western Wall
Send Your Prayer HERE

2.  We Are No Longer Begging For Our Lives
For 2,000 years we, the Jews, have subjected ourselves to the pity of many nations. When we were being beaten or burned, we begged the authorities to do something about it and most of the time our pleas fell on deaf ears. Whether it was America, who flew over Auschwitz hundreds of times and did nothing, or England who actually signed a treaty with Hitler while our people were being gassed, all we could do was cry and pray others would do something to stop the pogroms, attacks, gassing and shootings. NO MORE! 

Israel's people's army is now the fighting force that is ready to keep Jews safe no matter where they might be. NEVER AGAIN will we wait for the world to do something when our people are in danger! 

3.  Gathering Of The Jewish Nation From All 4 Corners 
Technology has allowed people to connect from all over the world but when the Jewish nation gathers from all four corners of the Earth, back to the Land of Israel, it is amazing in the most biblical way possible!

3. then, the Lord, your God, will bring back your exiles, and He will have mercy upon you. He will once again gather you from all the nations, where the Lord, your God, had dispersed you.4. Even if your exiles are at the end of the heavens, the Lord, your God, will gather you from there, and He will take you from there.5. And the Lord, your God, will bring you to the land which your forefathers possessed, and you will take possession of it, and He will do good to you, and He will make you more numerous than your forefathers.
—Deuteronomy 30:3-5

COMING HOME! (Warning! It's a tear-jerker!)

4.  Look where we have come!
Only 70 years ago we walked out of Europe beaten, ashamed and downtrodden. In only 67 years the Jewish people not only reawakened the Land of Israel from a 2,000 year slumber, we made it blossom! Whether it's your mobile phone, your computer, your doctor's office or your country's military, it's hard to find a place where Israeli innovation and inventions did not sneak in! Watering the world with drip irrigation, saving lives with the medical breakthroughs and enhancing your life with the technological advancements, Israel has come to be known as the start up nation and it is truly amazing!

5.  It's The Holy Land! What Other Reason Do You Need?
It's been 2,000 years, it's time to come home!
