Assault on Jerusalem

Nadene Goldfoot
"The Global March to Jerusalem" is an organization that plans to have thousands of protesters to go to Israel's borders at the same time from Arab countries and PA controlled territories.  They are claiming more than 700 instituions from 64 states are involved.  Protests will also take place outside Israeli embassies in Europe and Arab countries. 

Land Day, March 30, 2012 is a day that Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Geoge Galloway (Saddam Hussein's great apologist and other anti-Semites are uniting to sponsor a universal march on Jerusalem.  They called last year's march "Naksa Day, commemorating the 6 Day War.  That occurred on the anniversary of Israel's birthday, May 15, 1948. 

They have called it Land Day because they are commemorating the deaths of 6 Israeli Arabs in 1976 in protest of Israeli goverment land policies, they say.  They were protesting Israeli annexation of Judea and Samaria. 

Their aim is to stop "Judaizing" Jerusalem!  They have decided that they are the protectors of the Palestinian people and that they will be defending the city against the onslaught by the Zionists.  It's just too bad that they refuse to read some history about this land and people.  They would find out that Jerusalem is and has been the capital of only one people-the Jewish people. 

Jerusalem became the capital for Jews through their King David when it was captured by him in 1010 BCE.  It remained so until 70 CE when the Romans attacked.  In 1948 it was divided into two parts with Israel holding the W and S of the city.  From 1948 to 1967, Jews were kept from their Old City of Jerusalem, a city they prayed to see again for 2,000 years daily. On 5 June 1967 Jordan shelled Jerusalem's Israel's new section  from the Old City and Jordan.  It was the Arab armies that drove the Jews out of their Jerusalem home and also kept Arab Christians out as well.  Two days later Israel united the whole city as one again.  The first thing they did was go to the Western Wall, a place they had been kept from for 20 years. 

The IDF has been prepared.  Israel has announced that anyone who approaches the border will be treated as an infiltrtor.  The people organizing this march are hostile to Israel and called on the Arab countries to not allow escalation .  Jordan has said they will not prevent demonstrations as long as they are peaceful.  How can you be peaceful if you invade another's state? 

Judea and Samaria, flash points "demonstrations" are expected.  The Temple Mount in Jerusalem most likely will be another.  Sunday, March 25th was the day after Sabbath-Rosh Chodesh Nissan, the first day of the Hebrew month when the first Tabernacle was dedicated with the first day of Divine service.  That was Temple Mount Awareness Day and a special 6 hr telecast came from there with music and interviews.  The day was a reminder of the concept of the Holy Temple, where the Bible records that Hashem "G-d" accepted holy sacrifices with the Divine Presence. 

Now, of course, the site of our first Temple is the Temple Mount under the administration of Muslim clerics
The idea of coming to peace terms with such obstinate people at any time in the future seems harder every day.  How can you speak of peace when the Arabs won't even recognize your history in Jerusalem?  Their people live in a land just loaded with history and they know of no part of it. 

In Kuala Lumpur, Abdul Rahman told the people a huge lie in order to get them to participate.  He said after the flash mob today," Our focus is Jerusalem, where presently Muslims and Christians are denied access to their sacred places and holy places of worship by the Zionists."

Probably not in Portland. The Jewish community is very small and is not demonstrative.
