The elections in Egypt resulted in no surprises. The candidate of the Muslim brotherhood, Mohamed Morsi, is in front. In a rally on the first day. May Morsi promised to lead Egypt in the formation of new Muslim Caliphate with its capital in Jerusalem. Morsi also promised to expel all the Coptic Christians of Egypt shall not convert to Islam or reduce them to second-class citizens, or dhimmis.

Instead it will focus on how to fix the economy of Egypt is in shambles, it unites people through an absurd speech to unite the entire Arab and Muslim people of the region to destroy Israel. Where we have seen this before? And why Jerusalem? She was never the capital of anything Islamic in human history.

It is because Jerusalem has become the symbol of the failure Islamic warrior and only its reconquest will rehabilitate the Muslims in their own eyes.

And it was this past week, 45 years ago that the Israeli army liberated the Old City and the capital of the reunified country. Most battles are now just a distant memory described in history books. When visiting Jerusalem is difficult to see that the Jordanian army was there, in the heart of the city, surrounding walls on three sides. Iraqi forces were across the Jordan ready to send reinforcements. When the Jordanians opened fire, more than 6,000 artillery shells rained down on the Jewish residents of the city, leaving over a thousand injured.

After several warnings to the Jordanians, the Israeli army finally had no choice but to cross the ceasefire line of 1949 and capture the territory used by the Arabs to attack the Jewish state. Soon after the Six Day War, the UN discussed the right of parties who had complained to both Jerusalem and had to analyze the circumstances of how each of them took possession of the city.

The capture of Jerusalem by Jordan in 1948, was then described by the UN secretary general, Trygve Lie, as the first case of "armed aggression" since the Second World War. In contrast, the entry of Israel in the eastern city in 1967, was described as an action in self-defense. This distinction was even more apparent when the Soviet Union failed, despite repeated efforts, labeling Israel a "aggressor" in the Security Council in June 1967 and then in the UN General Assembly.

The great American jurist Stephen Schwebel, who became president of the International Court of Justice in The Hague, wrote in 1970 that "when a previous occupier of a territory, took illegally, the state which subsequently takes that territory exercising self-defense, has a better title to the previous occupier. "

Israel has a right ancient history of Jerusalem, recognized by the British Mandate. But it unfortunately disappeared from the international discourse after 1967. By international law, Israel has more right over Jerusalem that Jordan.

Today, after any war, the world tries to restore the territorial status quo before the conflict. But this can not be done with Jerusalem as the occupation of the city by Jordan was deemed illegal by the international community.

The fact that the UN did not send forces to protect Jerusalem in 1948, and to prevent the expulsion of the Jews who lived there, made ​​the clausas internationalization of the city's partition plan, would become unviable.

Thus, when the UN Security Council met to discuss a peace plan after the Six Day War, there was much ambivalence about what should happen with the territory and especially Jerusalem. The ceasefire line of 1949 was not sacrosanct. Never been a recognized international border. It was just about getting the truce line separating two armies after the War of Independence of Israel.

When finally the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 242, it failed to demand that Israel withdraw from "all territories" that had captured, as the Soviet Union wanted, but called for new secure and recognized borders, were outlined. It is what we now call Israel's right to defensible borders.

Resolution 242 not only called for Israel to withdraw behind the 1967 lines, but not referred to Jerusalem. And this omission was deliberate. U.S. President Lyndon Johnson at the time made ​​apparent its understanding, never referring to East Jerusalem as "occupied territory" and insisting that the armistice lines that divided Jerusalem were no longer viable. These statements were very clear legal implications.

Since 1988, the Palestinians say they replaced the Jordanians in the diplomatic arena and try to have a recognized sovereignty over Jerusalem which Jordan would have no right.

To erode the right of Israel, they began introducing language in UN resolutions on "occupied Palestinian territories," including East Jerusalem. In 1994, the administration of president Clinton stood firmly against such attempts when the U.S. ambassador to the UN Madeleine Albright said the U.S. veto in the Security Council saying that "today we are voting against a resolution precisely because it implies the fact that Jerusalem is an area occupied Palestinian. "

The diplomatic strategy of the Arabs and Palestinians has been to make the international community to adopt its discourse and legal terminology liar.

Unfortunately, many Israelis raised their hands making the new generation of Israelis do not know their legal rights and the historical city of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. Rights infinitely stronger than those claimed by the Arab side.

These details are still very important 45 years later. In March this year, the Palestinians managed to pass a resolution at the Human Rights Council UN in Geneva, describing Jerusalem as "occupied Palestinian territory."

At a time when the attack on the legitimacy of the rights of Israel is the centerpiece of their enemies, we must carry forward the historical truth of what happened 45 years ago and do not leave this lying and misleading narrative become the official discourse of the Arab , the media and the UN.

Her Only Meal

Help Israel's Most Vunlnerable
Every morning, an elderly woman named Lidia walks to
Colel Chabad, one of the many Fellowship-funded soup
kitchens in Israel
She is there to eat her only hot meal of the day.
“I don’t know what I would do without The Fellowship’s
help,” said Lidia.
Lidia — an 85 year-old Holocaust survivor — is just one
of the people in Israel who are depending on Fellowship
donors like you to support our Helping Hands Campaign.
This important annual campaign will provide basic
necessities like food, shelter, clothing, and medical
 to Israel’s neediest and most vulnerable people.
“Through the helping and caring hands of The Fellowship,
I know that I am not alone, and that people do care about
me,” Lidia said as she expressed her gratitude for
The Fellowship.

With Israel’s government forced to spend more of its resources to fight terrorism and defend
her borders, there is often little left to help elderly people like Lidia. That is why I urge you to
reach out to lend a “Helping Hand” today.
Your gift will make a very meaningful, profound difference in the lives of the less fortunate.

With prayers for shalom, peace,

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein

Support and Take Action For Israel 4

Front Page Mag:
Dear DHFC Supporter,

Israel's biggest fear is coming true...

Iran claims that Syria, Russia and China are joining the rogue nation for the "biggest-ever wargames in the Middle East." An estimated 90,000 troops, 400 aircraft and 1,000 tanks will participate in the joint exercise within the next 30 days.

As one of the Freedom Center's strongest supporters, I'm writing to you today with an important question: will you allow Israel to stand alone?

This is a critical time for Israel and we must stand prepared to defend her. That's why we're producing more "I Stand with Israel" t-shirts. Please reserve your t-shirt by donating $25 or more to the Freedom Center today. Every dollar you give will go towards our Israel Defense Fund.

President Obama has made it clear time and time again that his administration will not go to great lengths to protect one of America's strongest allies. He's thrown Israel under the bus countless times, and I fear he may not act to defend her if Iran attacks.

But the Freedom Center will not abandon Israel. We've been sounding the alarm about the threat Israel faces for years and we're prepared to go where no other organization has the courage to go to defend her. The Freedom Center won't shy away from telling the truth about the situation and we won't hesitate to write and speak out in defense of Israel.

Can I count on your support to insure the Freedom Center's Israel Defense Fund has the resources it needs to be effective? Please follow this link right away to make the most generous donation you can afford. Don't forget that I'll send you an "I Stand with Israel" t-shirt for your donation of $25 or more.

The time to act to defend Israel is now. Please don't hesitate to give generously to the Freedom Center's Israel Defense Fund today.


David Horowitz
President & Founder

P.S. Will you allow Israel to stand alone? The Freedom Center will not. That's why we're building up the Israel Defense Fund's arsenal. Please follow this link to donate $25 or more and I'll rush you an "I Stand with Israel" t-shirt. Thanks—David

United With Israel:
South Africa is planning to require “Made in the Occupied Palestinian Territories” labels on many products from Israel.

Macdonald Netshitenzhe, South Africa’s Director of Trade and Industry, South Africa explained “… South Africa recognizes Israel inside the 1948 UN borders….Therefore for the goods or vegetables which are grown in the area where Israel invaded other Arab countries, South Africa
says, you better say these products are grown in
Palestine or Occupied Palestinian Territories.”
Yigal Palmor, Spokesman of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs remarked “This is not a political objection to settlements, rather the act of singling out a state by a special marking system based on national-political criteria. Therefore, it is by essence a racist move… It is shocking to think that South Africa, of all countries, would display such callousness…”
We are asking all Israel supporters to protest legislation that unfairly singles out Israel – and to demonstrate that Israel has many faithful friends in South Africa and around the world.
You can make a difference, Israel needs your help!
ACT NOW FOR ISRAEL by sending a strong message directly to Ntutuzelo Vananda, Deputy Director of Consumer Law and Policy in South Africa.

Tell him that “Made in Palestine” labels are unacceptable.

Happy Father's Day to Our Father

 Today is Father's Day and we should congratulate our fathers in this special day, but we can't forget of congratulate God, our Heavenly Father.
 To our carnal fathers, we are able to give for them gifts, affection and honor (Deuteronomy 5:16, Mathews 15:4 and Mark 7:10), but what should we give for our God and Father? Think! First, we should love God above all the things (Deuteronomy 30:6, Mathews 22:37 and Mark 12:30). Second, we must do the wills of God (John 9:31 and 1 John 2:17). Third, confess and repent of our sins (Mathews 3:2, Mathews 3:6, Mark 1:15, Mark 4:17, Acts 2:38, Acts 3:19 and Acts 19:18). If we do everything, our God and Father will be pleased of us, but we should not do that barely in this day, but we do in every day of our lives, for that He is pleased of us now, always and eternally.
 ATTENTION! An alert for everybody:  "Jesus Christ: And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Mathews 23:9". Except our fathers (real parent), we should call nobody of Father, because God is the our Eternal Father!
 Think about it and I wish that our Eternal Father blesses us! Shalom!

Support and Take Action For Israel 3

Dear Friend of Israel,
As with many pro-Israel Americans, you likely find it hard to imagine the tremendous loss you would feel if the Jewish state were to no longer exist.
Today, as the Middle East experiences growing instability, as Hizballah and Hamas increase their weapon arsenals on Israel's border...and as Iran continues its pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability, we can never forget how real these threats are to Israel’s security...and very existence.
Most importantly, we can’t forget that America is the key ally that stands by Israel’s side.
As an AIPAC member, you will play a direct role in helping us work with Congress to secure billions in security aid and priceless diplomatic support that keeps America and Israel safe and secure.
I understand there are many worthy causes that ask for your support, but as you decide which organizations to donate to this year, I ask that you please keep in mind the following:
No other organization does the advocacy work of AIPAC.
None of the dollars you give AIPAC overlap with the work of other Jewish groups.
If pro-Israel advocates like you don’t give to AIPAC, our work doesn’t get done.
Please be assured that these are not over-hyped statements. Each one is true.
Member gifts provide 100% of the financing for AIPAC's important legislative work each and every year. That is why it is so important for pro-Israel Americans like you to join.
For nearly 60 years, AIPAC has been the organization that ensures Israel will never stand alone. Please join us today with a gift of $50, $100, $250 or more and lend your leadership in the important weeks and months ahead.
In addition to helping the pro-Israel community meet its continuing challenges, joining AIPAC will provide you with several personal benefits, including a Free subscription to Near East Report, an invitation to AIPAC’s annual Policy Conference, periodic email alerts and more.
Thank you in advance for your help and support.
Jonathan E. Missner
Director of National Affairs and Development
P.S. Each year, AIPAC is involved in more than 100 legislative and policy initiatives involving Middle East policy or aimed at broadening the U.S.-Israel bond. Member gifts to AIPAC provides 100% of the financing for these initiatives. Please support AIPAC with an online donation today. Thank You.

International Fellowship of Christians and Jews:
Help Israel's Most Vunlnerable

It breaks my heart that so many Jewish people in Israel are living in shocking poverty …
That one out of every three children in Jerusalem is growing up in poverty …
That elderly Jews – including Holocaust survivors – often cannot afford even basic food and medicines …
And that because Israel needs so many resources to guard against constant terrorist attacks, there is often little left for the government to use on behalf of her most vulnerable people.
This is the perfect way to reach out to these suffering souls. Your gift will be put to work immediately to provide food, shelter, medical assistance, and the basic necessities that so many people in the Holy Land urgently need.
Our goal is to raise $350,000 to provide life’s essentials to thousands of desperately needy Jewish people. So today I am calling on generous friends like you to become a "Helping Hand" by making a special campaign gift today.

The Fellowship is one of the largest humanitarian organizations in Israel, and we are already in position to make a difference at this especially critical time. However, first we need your help.
Please reach out to Israel’s poorest people by supporting The Fellowship’s 2012 Helping Hands Campaign today.

With prayers for shalom, peace,

As the bible says “Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter – when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?”

My friend, please seize this opportunity to make a meaningful, profound difference in the lives of those less fortunate

   Dear Friend,
   The Bible reveals an enormous truth to all of us: We are the Salt of the Earth. When society begins to disintegrate, no power outside of the Holy Spirit will stop the bleeding.
   Unless a failing kingdom turns to the One True God, it will disappear. The hope of Israel, as is true of every other nation, is the growth of the Body of Messiah and its resolve to see revival for our Jewish people.
   As Messianic Jewish believers and born-again Arab Christians in Israel steadily increase, we are beginning to see that God’s people can and are making a difference in the nation.
   In addition to seeing lives changed through bringing our friends and family to faith, believers are creating awareness to the entire nation concerning desperate situations in Israel such as human trafficking, abortion and treatment of refugees from Africa, to mention a few.
   Now the fact that 40 young Israelis from twelve congregations, including two Arab brothers, are traveling to the MJAA conference this summer is a mighty demonstration of what God is doing in Israel today! (Actually, there were more on our waiting list, but our quota limited us to 40.)
   At the conference, our Israeli group will be in charge of the Tuesday evening worship (in Hebrew and English!) and Ari will be delivering the message.
   The generosity of the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America and of Jewish Voice, together with Rabbi Eric Walker’s synagogue plus other like-minded Messianic Jewish congregations will made this trip another milestone in the Messianic movement.
   We have no doubt the Lord will do deep things in the hearts of the Israelis, the Americans and international youth who will be attending. Our God has already planned what great things he will accomplish through this conference.
   Our part in this endeavor is to raise $15,000, about $375 per young person.
   This is your opportunity to help these young people from all over our nation of Israel to be part of the MJAA conference.
   Being together for a whole week will certainly impact the lives of these 40 young adults, who will carry their enthusiasm, impartation and anointing back to the shores of Israel, and make a difference in the lives of many others.
   Whether you can sponsor one young person or several, or just give towards the expenses of the trip your gift will count! And count in eternal rewards, as well.
          For the lost sheep of Israel,

Count Palestine Refugees?

By Daniel Pipes
The fetid, dark heart of the Arab war on Israel, I have long argued, lies not in disputes over Jerusalem, checkpoints, or "settlements." Rather, it concerns the so-called Palestine refugees.

So called because of the nearly 5 million official refugees served by UNRWA (short for the "United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East"), only about 1 percent are real refugees who fit the agency's definition of "people whose normal place of residence was Palestine between June 1946 and May 1948, who lost both their homes and means of livelihood as a result of the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict." The other 99 percent are descendants of those refugees, or what I call fake refugees.

Perversely, UNRWA feted its 60th anniversary in 2009, as though this were something to be proud of.

Worse: those alive in 1948 are dying off and in about fifty years not a single real refugee will remain alive, whereas (extrapolating from an authoritative estimate in Refugee Survey Quarterly by Mike Dumper) their fake refugee descendants will number about 20 million. Unchecked, that population will grow like Topsy until the end of time.
This matters because the refugee status has harmful effects: It blights the lives of these millions of non-refugees by disenfranchising them while imposing an ugly, unrealistic irredentist dream on them; worse, the refugee status preserves them as a permanent dagger aimed at Israel's heart, threatening the Jewish state and disrupting the Middle East.
Solving the Arab-Israeli conflict, in short, requires ending the absurd and damaging farce of proliferating fake Palestine refugees and permanently settling them. 1948 happened; time to get real.

Senator Mark Kirk (Republican of Illinois), the force behind making long-needed changes to UNRWA.
I am proud to report that, in part based on the work carried out by the Middle East Forum's Steven J. Rosen and myself over the past year, the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee on May 24 unanimously passed a limited but potentially momentous amendment to the $52.1 billion fiscal 2013 State Department and foreign operations appropriations bill.
The amendment, proposed by Mark Kirk (Republican of Illinois) requires the State Department to inform Congress about the use of the annual $240 million of direct American taxpayer funds donated to Palestine refugees via UNRWA. How many recipients, Kirk asks, meet the UNRWA definition cited above, making them real refugees? And how many do not, but are descendants of those refugees?
The Kirk amendment does not call for eliminating or even reducing benefits to fake refugees. Despite its limited nature, Kirk calls the reporting requirement a "watershed." Indeed, it inspired what a senior Senate GOP aide called "enormous opposition" from the Jordanian government and UNRWA itself, bringing on what Foreign Policy magazine's Josh Rogin called a raging battle.
Why the rage? Because, were the State Department compelled to differentiate real Palestine refugees from fake ones, the U.S. and other Western governments (who, together, cover over 80 percent of UNRWA's budget) could eventually decide to cut out the fakes and thereby undermine their claim to a "right of return" to Israel.

Deputy Secretary of State Thomas R. Nides, who is trying to maintain UNRWA's dysfunctional system.
Sadly, the Obama administration has badly botched this issue. A letter from Deputy Secretary of State Thomas R. Nides opposing an earlier version of the Kirk amendment demonstrates complete incoherence. On the one hand, Nides states that Kirk would, by forcing the U.S. government "to make a public judgment on the number and status of Palestinian refugees … prejudge and determine the outcome of this sensitive issue." On the other, Nides himself refers to "approximately five million [Palestine] refugees," thereby lumping together real and fake refugees – and prejudging exactly the issue he insists on leaving open. That 5-million refugee statement was no fluke; when asked about it, State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell confirmed that "the U.S. government supports" the guiding principle to "recognize descendants of refugees as refugees."
Also, by predicting a "very strong negative reaction [to the amendment] from the Palestinians and our allies in the region, particularly Jordan," Nides invited Arabs to pressure the U.S. Senate, a shoddy maneuver unworthy of the State Department.
Through all of Israel's 64-year existence, one American president after another has resolved to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict, yet every one of them ignored the ugliest aspect of this confrontation – the purposeful exploitation of a refugee issue to challenge the very existence of the Jewish state. Bravo to Senator Kirk and his staff for the wisdom and courage to begin the effort to address unpleasant realities, initiating a change that finally goes to the heart of the conflict.
