There They Go Again...

by Gerald A. Honigman

...those racist Zionists...always stirring up trouble.

This time, they dared to name Rachel's Tomb and the Cave of the Patriarchs as National Heritage Sites. Just Like they dare claim about Jerusalem and such. Ugh!

Imagine the gall...

Two sites that the world would know absolutely nothing about were it not for their Jewish connections--both over three thousand years old. Certainly not enough time for Jews to proclaim any rights to. I mean, think of the Alamo and America...And

yet, look what they just went ahead and did...

After all, we all know that those sites are really on "Palestinian" land on the "West Bank," right?

Certainly the Obama Administration does...It just took Israel to task over such audacity. Like it also demands that no Jew live in Judea or Samaria (but it's ok for 1/5 of Israel to be made of the freest Arabs anywhere in the world outside of the West) and stop building in parts of Jerusalem as well.

But--reply those Jew fascists--the land was not known as the "west bank" (as opposed to the "east bank" of the Jordan River, that part of the original 1920 Mandate of Palestine--about 80% of the total area--that British imperialism formed today's Arab Jordan from) until the very last century and was known as Judea (as in land of the Jews) and Samaria for thousands of years before then. (Quick quiz:...Was Jesus born in Bethlehem of Judea or Bethlehem of the West Bank or Bethlehem of Palestine in the New Testament?)

Look, the time for politically correct should have been over long ago.

Bluntly, no Arab (with the exception of a few Christians, whose Lord was also Jewish carpenter) would have ever known of the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the Temple Mount (or, as Arabs call it, Buraq's Mount--named after Muhammad's winged horse, with the head of a woman, who supposedly just happened to fly him up to Heaven from the Jews' historic Temple of Solomon), the significance of Jerusalem, Abraham, the Akedah, etc. and so forth if their "Seal of the Prophets," Muhammad, did not flee his enemies in Mecca in the 7th century C.E. and take refuge in the date palm oasis town of Medina--established by Jews fleeing the Roman wars centuries earlier. Indeed, Jewish influence was so important in that region that Yemen, just to the south, had a series of Jewish kings practically right up to the rise of the Prophet of Islam.

After the hijrah--Muhammad's flight to Medina--he soon found himself in the midst of a mixed Jewish and pagan Arab population (itself now influenced by the Jews). Before long, he himself was speaking about one G_d, supposedly has an encounter with the Angel Gabriel, speaks of Abraham, Moses, and so forth--all from the Holy Book of his Jewish hosts...and then orders his followers to face towards Jerusalem in Jews do.

Wow...what a coincidence!

I mean, I'll give that Hebrew Angel of G_d, Gabriel, credit, but perhaps--just maybe-- Muhammad's long sojourn and study with Jews, at the very least, also had something to do with his, and therefore also the Arabs' who accepted his religio-political leadership--new beliefs?

A major Arab commentator, Jalaluddin, came right out about a thousand years ago and said Muhammad's change of the qibla--direction of prayer--away from the Kaaba in Mecca towards Jerusalem was done only to win the support of the important Jewish tribes. While Jerusalem is never mentioned even once in the Qur'an, it is mentioned many hundreds of times in the Hebrew Bible (aka, "Old Testament").

To say that such things as Jerusalem, Abraham, the Tomb of the Patriarchs, and so forth are as important to Arabs and other Muslims as they are to Jews is to simply tell a lie. Or, perhaps, Jews should restake a claim to their holdings in Medina?

As soon as the Jews refused to accept Muhammad's demand that they accept him as the ultimate human chief honcho, he massacred all the Jewish males and enslaved the women and children...and changed the qibla back towards Mecca again.
Jews don't need President Obama or anyone else's approval to declare the truth.

Israel is entitled to that territorial compromise promised by the final draft of UNSC Resolution 242 in the wake of the June 1967 War--whether in Judea and Samaria, the Golan Heights, or wherever. And unlike places like American Samoa or President George Bush's Texas ranch, Jews have thousands of years of history linking them to those lands--territory where Arabs continuously launched death and destruction from.

That President Obama and the State Department (which rejected Israel's right to exist in the first place) expect Israel to simply cave in to all that the Arabs demand should be no shock to anyone with functioning neurons.

If Arabs can stake a claim to Jerusalem based upon the belief of a night journey by Muhammad from the Arabian Peninsula, on a winged horse, to the Temple of Solomon in the land of the Jews, then objections to Jews officially claiming the Tombs of the Matriarchs and Patriarchs as National Heritage Sites in Judea are utterly absurd and laughable. No Arab (with good intentions) will be kept out of those sites...

But, neither will any Jews.

Please see my new book at which Brigitte Gabriel and other major commentators have called "a must read."
