Who truly occupies whom?

Palestinians occupy Jewish land.

Jews are the true indigenous people and owners of the land of Israel.

The ancient Philistines have long disappeared from the earth, and current Palestinians have absolutely no connection to them.

Sukkot and Impermanence

In discussing the festival of Sukkot, the Talmud gives all the various possible explanations for the origin and purpose of...

On September 19 2015, Obama’s then-White House Chief of Staff, Denis McDonough said: “an [Israeli] occupation that has lasted for almost 50 years must end.”

Jerusalem was always the capital of a Jewish State, never an Arab one.

Jerusalem is mentioned 687 times in the Hebrew Bible.

Jerusalem is mentioned 146 times in the New Testament.

Jerusalem is not mentioned — not even once — in the Koran.

Jerusalem is the Jewish holy place.

Rome is the Christian holy place.

Mecca is the Muslim holy place.

Jews have always maintained a presence in all the land of Israel — including Gaza and the West Bank — despite being oppressed, persecuted and murdered, by world empires like Babylonia, Persia, Assyria, Greece, Rome, etc.

To find these cultures today, you need bulldozers to dig up the sands of time.

Palestinians are an “invented” people — their origin stamped into their family names: al-Masri (the Egyptian), al-Djazair (the Algerian), el-Mughrabi (the Moroccan), al-Yamani (the Yemenite) and even al-Afghani are so common among those claiming to be Palestinians.

Yasser Arafat himself was Egyptian.

Mahmoud Abbas is Jordanian.

“Today’s Palestinians are immigrants from many nations.” (DeHass, History, p. 258. Reinhold Rohricht edition).

“There are villages populated wholly by settlers from other portions of the Turkish Empire in the 19th century; Bosnians, Circassians, and Egyptians.” (James William Parkes, “History of the Peoples of Palestine,” 1970)

For those who believe in God’s promise to the Jews of the land of Israel as an “eternal inheritance” in the Holy Bible, see:

• Genesis 12:6-7, 15:13-21, 17:1-8, 17:19, 26:1-5, 28:10-14 and 35:9-12

• Numbers 34:13-29

• Deuteronomy 3:8

Jews have possessed  the land of Israel since the year 1466 BCE, and the Arabs invaded Israel (Palestine) in the year 635 CE.

Who promised this land to the Palestinians?

The children of Israel have come home.
