This slant that is anti-Zionist, anti-Israel and anti-Semitic is even demonstrated in the blurb used to describe new articles as is quite evident with this news summary I received in my e-mail notices in one of my News Briefs, especially when the actual events are compared to the one sentence slight against the Israeli police and their actions seen below with title and their reference included.

 

“Israel police enter Islam holy place
Israeli police entered one of Islam’s holiest places — annexed east Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque — on Sunday to tackle suspected Palestinian rioters, police said. Israel routinely imposes age restrictions on Muslim worshippers. (original report from AFP) ”

 

The reason I have a differing opinion and am fully aware of the slanting is because this was one story from a week worth of coverage in local news of the events on the Temple Mount. The events described so dripping with such enmity was because the reality was there had been an escalating series of events planned ahead of the Jewish commemoration of the destruction of the First and Second Temples which is observed on the ninth of the Jewish month of Av except as that fell on the Sabbath the observance was postponed to the tenth which was Sunday. The intent was two-fold, first was to deny Jews access to visit the place of the Temples’ destructions and second was to attempt to hurt or worse any of the security police which has become a Temple Mount regularity which has taken an even more violent turn as time has passed, as have other attacks such as the rock attacks, where the rocks have increased in size and lethality, on motorists which has spread to some of the Arab towns within the Green Line such as the Galilee. The particular incident the News Brief and corresponding article referred to took place early Sunday morning where the police were assaulted with rocks, bricks, cement blocks, boards and fireworks which have often been modified in such a manner so as to cause injuries plus this Sunday were accompanied by throwing flammable liquids on the officers before losing pyrotechnic fireworks with intent of lighting the officers on fire. The assailants had stocked the al-Aqsa Mosque, the presumed holy site of great reverence, with their projectiles and other weapons and had used rope and other devices to force the doors open allowing them access to their provisions and preventing the officers from simply closing them off in the Mosque in order to terminate the assaults. This was the reason the police entered the Mosque as they sought to free the doors and lock their assailants inside and reduce the danger to the officers as they are not permitted to arrest these youths except in the most egregious of instances. A couple of the officers were evacuated to Hadassah Medical Center for medical treatment while the others were treated by paramedics on the scene.

 

Israel Police issued the following a statement, “The police forces acted with skill and professionalism, showing determination and courage under a shower of rocks, fireworks and iron bars. As they began to remove the barriers placed at the entrance to the mosque, masked men continued to shoot fireworks at police, injuring several of them. In light of the severe confrontation and the escalating actions of the rioters and with the aim of preventing further injury to police… forces entered a number of meters inside and closed the doors to the mosque with the rioters inside, restoring order.” (See pictures of condition inside the holy site held precious by Islamic faith found when Temple Mount Security Police were forced to enter the immediate first few meters of the al-Aqsa Mosque to secure doors to end riot. This is how this mosque has been denigrated into an armory for assaults on Police and Jews entering the Temple Mount pictures c/o Arutz Sheva article titled Muslim Rioters Attack Israeli Police on Temple Mount)

There have been reported calls in the Palestinian official media calling for the taking back of the Temple Mount from the Jews who have no historical reason to visit the area as there has never been a Jewish Temple or other holy site ever on the grounds. The most recent claims have explained that the Arab society was in Jerusalem for thousands of years before the Jews arrived and the Jews came to steal the wealth of the Arab society and to steal their holy areas and deny the Arabs their rightful lands. These exhortations almost always include calls for taking back the area through violent confrontations as it is known that when the Arab youths riot that the Temple Mount will more often than not be closed initially to Jewish visitation and that only if such does not end the confrontations within a few days, even up to a week, that the Israeli authorities allow the restriction of males under age 40 from accessing the al-Aqsa and other areas on the Temple Mount. Such bans rarely last more than a few days and afterwards the level of the violence is reduced but builds back to levels dangerous to the lives of the Police within a short period. That is the unreported cycle of violence.

 

The other non-news is the way Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount are treated both by the Muslims and the Police under orders from the Jordanian Waqf which was left in control of the Muslim holy sites and has expanded their jurisdiction to the entirety of the Temple Mount over time and directly due to feckless and timidity of Israeli leadership in the Knesset and the higher ranks of the Police and IDF responsible for keeping order both on the Temple Mount and throughout Arab neighborhoods and surrounding areas. This tactic of non-confrontation has had the exact opposite affect than intended and has only served to embolden the Arabs and has not calmed the European seething anger looking for Israeli, Jewish, transgressions over which to breathe their fire and accuse once more Israel of the accursed crime of self-defense, the one crime Israel’s defenders are never to be permitted. So Israel does the only honorable thing they are permitted by the NGO busybodies, the European political sharks seeking fame and glory on Israel’s grave, the United Nations human rights abusers who sit in judgement of the human rights offenders imagined in Israel to hide their own transgressions and whoever else desires to join the feeding frenzy. If ever a better trap was fashioned, a restive revolution ungovernable by its own governance and set beyond the jurisdictions of the actual government by those who will to destroy the Jewish State by any means at their disposal that continued and will continue unabated until somebody takes the helm in this madhouse of a nation slowly committing suicide because everybody is too worried about the opinions of the world and thus afraid to take responsibility and act to govern instead of run from every confrontation that seeks to destroy their nation all to please the unpleasable.

 

What makes this all the more confusing is that there seems to be no reason beyond the decision that the world had made a terrible blunder allowing the Jews back their ancestral homelands during the treaties and restructuring of half of Europe and much of the Middle East and North Africa after World War I. Many claim that the powers who agreed at San Remo now desired to renege on their promises. But perhaps there is another reason, a reason more esoteric. Perhaps the reason is the same reason that the Jews have been hunted and sought out for destruction in the ancient eras and that is in order to prove that Hashem does not exist for if the Jews were to disappear then the covenant would be broken and thus Hashem’s word would have been made irrelevant and thus make way once again for all gods to be made by man and thus controlled by man. Initially that was the reason for permitting the Jews to return to their lands as it was promised that the land would spit out and refuse harvest to all its conquerors and await the return of the Jews before once again producing a bountiful harvest. The brilliant idea was to give the Jews their ancestral wastelands which none had turned profitable for over two thousand years. The lands refused to produce for Rome, for the Ottomans, for the British and for all the others inbetween so the solution was to have the Jews return and the land to fail them as well and prove there was no existence known as Hashem to those silly Jews who refuse to even call Him by His real name. So they gave the wastelands that had scorned all who resided within and even refused Allah when his believers attempted to use Jerusalem as a place for gathering but not to honor it as their capital choosing instead the climes of Damascus. There was a slight problem, a miscalculation, a refusal to consider the impossible; what if the lands of Israel began to produce and proved fertile for the Jews proving Hashem and His every promise. Did they not know that Torah predicted the return after an unbelievable and unprecedented exile not survivable by any other peoples? Was not this exile predicted and the return as well? Well, now that the land is providing its bounty and the Jews and Israel do flourish those who had made their designs on its failure must find a new manner of taking this bountiful land and making it produce for them. It will not and cannot as it is promised to only one. They had two millennia to find the answer and make Israel bloom and the only workable solution was to allow the return of the Jews and this had infuriated those who refuse to believe. So they hamstring Israel at every turn and use tricks and pressures to make life unbearable and yet the land and the people flourish. What they have refused to see and bear witness is that the Arabs who live amongst the Jews do too flourish in proportion to their willingness to live peaceably. Perhaps the rest of the world would benefit if they too lived and existed at peace with Israel rather than in perpetual confrontation. For one moment just sit back and wonder at what miracles of medicine, software, agriculture and of every other discipline could be produced if only Israel were not forced to fight against the evil desires of the rest of the world. Imagine the gifts if only Israel were left in peace to work towards the betterment of all people. As John Lenin stated, ‘Imagine,’ imagine Israel completely dedicated to inventiveness and not half her efforts simply to keep the peace and be at peace. Of course John Lenin wished for us to dream of a socialist utopia proven unworkable by all who have tried except for one, Henry David Thoreau, but he had his own Walden Pond and its benefactor who could afford such dreams, nations cannot, just as this world could have their Walden Pond except it would be named Israel.

Has Prime Minister Netanyahu Finally Recognized Jerusalem is Exploding?

Just the end of last week when Prime Minister Netanyahu approached about the violence on the Temple Mount chimed in with the same old canard of keeping the status quo. Perhaps pictures of rioting youths, many wearing the emblematic green headgear signifying their allegiance to Hamas (pictured Below) on the Temple Mount threatening the police and preventing any Jewish Israelis access to the holy grounds during the last weekend of this holiday season will display the threat. These riots, called the ‘Silent Intifada’ due to silence of Israeli authorities, have been roiling and disrupting Jewish and any other than Muslim visitations to the Temple Mount for the past months in a steadily increasing measure of numbers and violence. These rioters arrive early every morning potentially before dawn stocking their supplies of firebombs, rocks, bricks, fireworks and other pyrotechnics, flammables and projectile objects storing them within the al-Aqsa Mosque and other Mosques around the Temple Mount. These assaults have been mostly ignored by the media and allowing for the political leadership to thus far pretend that the problem did not exist. Their mantra used to attempt to brush the problems aside was the call of “Maintain the status quo.” What exactly finally caught sufficient attention forcing the change from passivity to urgency for action is unimportant, the fact something changed is sufficient if this new level of concern and calls for actions are actually followed by changes. So, what are the required changes to bring about a small amount of sanity and equality of access and utilization of the spaces and facilities on the Temple Mount for Muslims, Jews, Christians and others?

The first problem which must be addressed is that of those instigating these disturbances. This must begin with putting an end to the provocations from Hamas and the Palestinian Authority. Hamas leadership are financially rewarding the leadership instigating the rioting on the Temple Mount while Mahmoud Abbas has been backing with encouragements of his own providing verbal support claiming that the continued rioting and denial of Jewish access to the Temple Mount is serving the establishments of the Palestinians State and in the service of Allah. These instigations must be placed in reference to the discourse in the Western world where every statement and house planned to be built by Israel is condemned out of hand and often with absolute demands for immediate remedial actions. The world must be made aware and to witness these words and instigations. If that requires buying advertising time on major networks to show the world the truth, then that is what must be pursued. We need the political and other leadership to air these dirty accusations and instigations from Hamas, Abbas , Iran, and throughout most of the world, including the European instigators who come and force confrontations and then release slanted videos demanding that honorable officers who after being provoked, fingers broken by the instigators and his men ridiculed and belittled finally answered with one measured blow gets drummed from service in shame because our leadership shamed all of us by not standing by this commander and simply telling the world that if you come into our country and provoke out military men and women then you too may feel their wrath and let that be a shot across their bow and a warning well sent. Show the world daily the news feeds which depict these animals running in riotous rampages on the holy places of our faith, the Christian faiths and even presumably their own Islamic faith. Let the world see both sides, ours which is of marked restraint and those who viscously act like wild animals seething with bile and anger completely devoid of a shred of humanism.

Let the world witness the truth and they will eventually compare and choose more wisely or reveal their true hatred for our society and our accomplishments in the recent modern history in our ancestral lands. Let us call the world to judge which they want to share their world with, animalistic hatreds or technological advancement, seething hatreds or enforcement of law and order, denial of the holiness of the heart and central jewel of Jerusalem, the Temple Mount or those whose love and reverence for this holy place will only honor and share it with all free of anger, spite or hatreds, just filled with compassion and love. And we must show the world the effort we are to make to cleanse this holy ground so that all may again share our mutually holy place, the Temple Mount, and our effort to make it readily available and accessible for prayer and reverence towards G0d. After the riotous infection has been cleared from the Temple Mount then the Jordanians and their Waqf must be made to understand that if they wish to manage the Temple Mount they must manage it making it suitable and available to all or be replaced by those who will accept making the Temple Mount a place for universal love and worship, revered and kept holy and free of hatreds and violence. But first and foremost, make our holy place where the two Temples once stood sacred again and worthy and accessible for all who wish to honor and revere this place which is the central location for ourselves and others who also hold it sacred. Either all who revere the Temple Mount must be permitted unfettered access under the Waqf or it must be taken from them and governed to permit all equal treatment and respect, nothing less should be acceptable, nothing less.

From Numerous Rockets to Sizeable Rocks

The one item that never appears to change is that Palestinian violence against Israelis is rarely given the coverage it deserves by the mainstream media. When the western press covered the last Israeli interdiction against Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the plethora of terrorist entities in order to end, or at least greatly lessen, the numbers of rockets being fired almost daily onto civilian areas in southern Israel the case being reported made things appear that the rockets that were being fired into Israel during their operations might have been simply in response to the Israeli offensive. Little to any coverage was given to the months that preceded the Israeli offensive where rockets being fired upon Israeli civilians within range of Gaza had been ramping up ever since the previous interdiction a few years earlier. Anybody watching the news reports would not have been informed that in the six weeks previous to Israeli intervention there had been numerous rockets fired daily into Israel some of which reaching as far as Ashkelon, Beersheba and almost to southern Tel Aviv. The reason behind this given by those in the media is that the rockets being fired into Israel by Hamas and other terrorists in Gaza is such a common event that it is not news worthy. On the other hand, an Israeli response to these rockets happens only seldom and thus it is news worthy as it is not the norm. So, shooting rockets at Jewish and Arab Israeli civilians are not worth coverage because it happens so regularly that it is simply a normal event that is not worth mention by the press. But that begs a question of why does the press not bother to point out that Israel is responding to barrages of rockets that had been nearly constant for months and even years? They will claim that it was mentioned that Israel was responding to a recent barrage of rockets. A recent barrage of rockets is completely different than a constant barrage of rockets daily for months and months. But the press is delinquent at mentioning such truths.

Fortunately the rocket fire has halted for the time being as it always does for a few weeks or months after Israeli interdictions end. Instead a new threat has picked up any slack left by the quiet on the Gaza front. The new assault has been a sharp increase in the rock assaults on Israeli licensed vehicles in Judea and Samaria. Along with the rocks are other projectiles such as bricks, cinderblocks, and Molotov cocktails. Currently a two year old girl named Adelle lies in the same hospital with her mother and two older sisters, Naama age six and Avigayil age four, unconscious fighting for her life as a result of one of these rock attacks just last week. A woman on her way to her relative’s home for the Seder service Monday night had her car rammed from behind and when she stopped four men exited the ramming vehicles, slashed all four tires and broke every window on her car then fled. She was actually very fortunate that they fled and did not assault her beyond frightening her half to death by their assault on her vehicle. There have been some accidents caused by these rock assaults which have resulted in death as the driver loses control and the car careens off the road with fatal results as was the case with Asher Palmer and his one year old son, Yehonatan. Yet, if you live outside of Judea and Samaria you may have not heard that much about these attacks, even more likely if you do not live in Israel. If the press were actually interested in reporting the news and framing the Israeli situation evenly and without bias, then these stories would be in the news almost daily. Where every time Israel causes an injury to a Palestinian, even if the injury was caused in the process of defending from an attempted terror attack, the press is right on the story often page one above the fold. But Palestinians assaulting Israelis with intent to murder, or at the very least cause great harm or severe injury, such items are a common activity not worthy of reporting. But should Israel respond then it will be reported that the Israeli response is disproportional to the actions perpetrated by the Palestinians who are simply defying the occupation. Never mind that the history of these attacks goes back to 1929, 1933, and 1939 when the Arabs in the British Mandate lands held pogroms against the Jews also living in the Mandate lands.

One of the more infamous attacks took place in Hevron and as a result of the Arab on Jewish aggression the British forced every single Jewish family to forfeit their homes, businesses and lands in Hevron because it was more expedient to make further victims of the Jews than to enforce the law and punish the Arab attackers. This exiling of the Jews from Hevron is at the root of many of the problems in Hevron today as the Arabs there claim the Jews left their homes abandoning them and have no right to return and claim them now. A similar reason is given for the attacks on Israeli vehicles with bricks, large rocks, cinderblocks, and fire bombs where they claim these attacks are intended to drive the Jews off of Palestinian Arab land and force the Jews back to Europe and America or wherever they came from. This begs another question that is never asked; where are the Jews who have lived in Israel, particularly Jerusalem, for the last three thousand years supposed to move and where are the Sephardic Jews who were evicted from their homes in numerous Arab countries supposed to go, back to Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Libya, where? Half of Israeli Jews lived in the areas that is now Israel and also Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and in Arab countries. Only the Ashkenazi Jews came mostly from Europe, the United States, Canada and other Western Nations. The frequency and severity of these rock and projectile attacks has greatly increased since the end of the Gaza operation almost as if the Arabs of the Palestinian Authority are taking up the slack for the temporary pause in the rocket attacks out of Gaza. Eventually Israel will be forced to take actions to end these attacks as well. When they finally lose patience and take measures to prevent these attempts to murder and harm Israeli citizens, expect the news to emphasize the severity of the Israeli actions and report that it is all over the Palestinians throwing stones at Israelis. They will leave out that their targets were vehicles on highways and that the stones weighed in at a formidable size better described as large rocks, bricks, and cinderblocks. Some of the rocks are actually stones but those are often launched with slings and we know from the Bible what a stone and a sling can accomplish. The press is not going to change until people demand the truth unvarnished and without slant, or at least with some slanted for each side. Balance is the key and coverage of Israel and the Palestinians is reporting as unbalanced as it comes.
