Israel Under Fire–Again

Recently, Israel endured weeks of increased rocket fire from Gaza, and anti-tank fire against a jeep routinely patrolling Israel’s side of the fence.  A Hamas rocket landed on a home in Kiryat Malachi, killing 3 Israelis. Israel suffered like this for weeks before responding with surgical attacks against Hamas launch sites and operatives in Gaza.  At no point has Israel responded by carpet bombing residential areas in Gaza.

Whenever this sort of thing occurs, Israel claims self defense, while Hamas and their sympathizers claim that Israel’s military actions are illegal.  Hamas and their sympathizers claim that it is moral for them to bomb Israeli civilians, but immoral for Israel to attack Hamas militants.

The argument normally goes like this:

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “Israel’s existence is illegal.”
Answer: “No.  The State of Israel was ratified by a legal vote of the United Nations in 1947.”

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “The UN vote was wrong, because the Holocaust never happened.”
Answer: “Everyone knows that the Holocaust happened.  The USA and Britain sacrificed their young men to fight against Hitler and end the Holocaust.  The German record books of death camps have been opened to the public.”

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “No! The Holocaust is a huge lie perpetrated by America, the Jews,  and the Zionist Entity!”
Answer: OK, now you sound like an idiot.  The Holocaust is undeniable.

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “End the occupation of Gaza!”
Answer: Israel ended the occupation in 2005 and relocated hundreds of Jewish families out of there.

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “End the occupation of Gaza!”
Answer: Even Hamas admitted that the Israeli occupation has ended.
“In 2012, the co-founder of Hamas, Rahul, stated that Gaza was no longer occupied.”

“‘Against whom could we demonstrate in the Gaza Strip? When Gaza was occupied, that model was applicable,’ Zahar said.” Retrieved from Ma’an News Agency, January 5, 2012
http://www.maannews.net/eng/ViewDetails.aspx?ID=449619

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “Well, then stop the blockade of Gaza.”
Answer: International Law permits a naval blockade when necessary to protect people from those trying to kill them.  The blockade began when Hamas took power in 2007.  Either vote Hamas out of office in Gaza, or change the Hamas Charter which says “destroy Israel.”

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “Israel deserves to be destroyed! They stole the land!”
Answer:  It was never your land.  It was under Ottoman rule from about 1500 until 1917, and then under British rule from 1917 to 1947.  Your people were allowed to live on the land, but the land did not belong to you. You had no sovereign government of your own.

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “But, my grandparents had land.”
Answer: Only by Turkish and British permission.  But they also allowed Jews to have land, so this is irrelevant.

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “The Turks and the British were obligated to allow Arabs to have land, because it is rightfully Arab land.”
Answer:  No one managed to convince the Turks or the British to forbid the Jews from living on the land.  These empires allowed it, and no one could say otherwise.  At any rate, the Ottoman Turks are gone now (WWI), same with the British as custodians of the Land (WWII); therefore what those empires allowed in their day has since bowed to the UN vote of 1947, a Jewish homeland.

PA/Hamas sympathizers:  “The land belongs to Mohammed and the Jews cannot have one inch of it.”
Answer: Sorry, but the majority of the world disagrees with you.  As was seen in the UN vote of 1947.

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “But Israel forces Gazans to live in that jail, suffering, with no food and water.”
Answer: Gaza also shares a border with Egypt; so it’s not Israel’s responsibility alone.  Israel transfers truckloads of food, supplies, toys, etc. every day.  Israel supplies electricity and gas to Gaza even though Gaza shows no appreciation.  There is actually no humanitarian crisis in Gaza despite statements to the contrary.

UN Vote:
It’s true that the Arab states voted against the establishment of a Jewish Homeland as a bloc, so therefore the Arab states do not like the results of the vote; this however, does not make the vote illegal, nor does it render the State of Israel illegal.  It’s time for the Arab states to cut their losses and stop being crybabies.  Arab states lost the vote in 1947.  It’s time you accept that fact instead of carrying on with this non-acceptance of the UN vote.

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “We will never accept the UN vote. Israel must die.”
Answer: Military actions taken against a member state of the UN are illegal.  It is the illegal existence of Hamas that must end, the UN member state known as Israel is quite legal according to International Law.

PA/Hamas sympathizers: “But the international community is wrong. The whole world needs to accept Sharia Law, which states that a Jewish state cannot exist.”
Answer: We think not.  That is the root of our disagreement right there.
And, you’ve just switched from a political argument to a religious argument.
To give a religious answer: Sura 5:21 of the Koran/Quran states that Israel is the land for the Jewish people.

“Prof. Khaleel Mohammed, Islamic Law scholar of the San Diego State University, noted that Sura 5 verse 21 of the Qur’an, and the medieval exegetes of the Qur’an, say that Israel belongs to the Jews.”

Passover Calendar 2012

Messiah is the Lamb that was slain (1 Cor 5:7) to keep the death angel away: Worthy is the Lamb!
1 Cor 5:8 clearly writes to the Church: “Therefore let us keep the [Passover] Feast…” Going leaven-free for one week is also a metaphor for removing sin from our lives – according to the entire Chapter 5 of 1 Corinthians. :-)

So, to summarize the dates:
• Passover begins just before sunset on the 14th of the First Month (April 5, 2012).
• That’s the time to have the Seder meal, including Unleavened Bread, since the 15h of Aviv starts at sunset and is the First Day of Unleavened Bread.
• Feast of Unleavened Bread (FULB) lasts 7 days: from sunset April 5 til April 12 at sunset.
• The last day is a High Shabbat.

Purge out from you the old leaven, that you may be a new mass, as you are unleavened. For our Passover is the Mashiyach, who was slain for us. Therefore let us celebrate the Festival, not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of wickedness and bitterness, but with the leaven of purity and sanctity. I wrote to you by letter, not to mingle with sexual sinners. But I say not, with the sexual sinners who are in the world… that you don’t mix, if anyone is called a brother and is a sexual sinner, or avaricious, or an idol-worshipper, or a charlatan, or a drunkard, or rapacious, with him who is such, not even to eat bread… and remove you the wickedness from among you. (1 Corinthians 5:7-13 AENT)

Pic: Sunset in Cyprus with a Lovely Ship at Sea

0dsc00164
Ah, the romantic sight of a ship pulling into harbor for the night just as the sun sets behind the cooing passengers, back from a seaward adventure. Every cloud has a silver lining and the sky is full of gold.

 

Um, actually, this ship ran aground here, off the coast of Cyprus. In 1972. And it’s still sitting there. But you wouldn’t know all that just from looking at the picture.

 

A picture paints a thousand words. It’s just that sometimes those words are completely inaccurate.

 

That’s why we endorse the Aramaic English New Testament: True Words.

Hanukah in Cyprus

Dsc00120

 

Landed fine in Cyprus, and just lit the first Hanukah candle. Blessings in Y’shua the Messiah. Y’shua celebrated Hanukah:

 

“Then came the Feast of the Dedication in Jerusalem.  It was winter, and (Yeshua) Jesus was walking in the temple area in Solomon’s Portico.  The Jewish leaders surrounded him and asked, “How long will you keep us in suspense?  If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.” Jesus replied,  “I told you and you do not believe.
The deeds I do in my Father’s name testify about me.” (John 10:22- 25  AENT)

New Moon 7th Month Sighted 29th Sept 2011

This article is intended for those who are
interested in the Feasts of YHWH.

Sept 29th, 2011:

The other day, on the 27th, I wrote in my email newsletter: “the NASA data predicts the New Moon will fall just after sunset on the 28th.  The
Rabbinic calendar’s 19-year cycle, based on more antiquated scientific data, also places the Rosh Chodesh (Head of the Month) on the 28th.  But are they right?  We shall see!”

Well, we looked and looked… and no moon!  We knew
that the moon would set just 25 minutes after the
sunset.  That normally means that there’s still too
much light to see the moon before it dips below the
horizon. Last night, it proved to be true.

Therefore, the 28th cannot be the Day of Trumpets (Yom
Teruah) nor can it be the start of the countdown to
Yom Kippur and Feast of Tabernacles.  It may start
at sunset tonight if the New Moon is visible.

I say this from here in Israel where everyone has
the day off, the streets are quiet, and people are
celebrating in homes, eating apples and honey.

BREAKING:  My friends and I have just spotted the
sliver of the New Moon in Jerusalem and in Rosh
haAyin, which is in Samaria, Israel.

Witnesses: Arieh Levi, Willy Andrechuk, David
Cachicas, Daniela Cachicas, Oriana Torres, Sarita
Torres, Marta Alvarez, Teddy Chadwick.

Therefore, the Seventh Month for 2011 has begun at
sunset on the 29th September.  The Day of Trumpets
is from sunset on the 29th to sunset on the 30th.
This is the first day of the month and begins the
countdown to Yom Kippur and Succot.

***********************************************

***********************************************

I don’t know exactly why the NASA data seems to be
incorrect for 2 months in a row.  I’ve come to
expect that fro the rabbinic calendar, which quite
often fails to line up with the sighting of the
moon.  You can’t make a 19-year cycle using
whatever information is available at the time, and
expect it to be correct forever.  The earth’s
rotation is slowing down, the moon’s orbit is
slowing down, even the speed of light is slowing
down!  Things change.

As to why the NASA data doesn’t seem to be holding
up, well, maybe there’s been a change in the
earth’s tilt. Perhaps the tilt is related to the
magnetic pole shift, which appears to be in
acceleration, and is now at 40 miles per year, as
reported Jan 11th, 2011 on NBC News:

Rather than depending on NASA, the “rabbis,” or
men, or traditions of men (Mark 7:8-9, Matt.
15:6,9) I propose that we follow the Bible, rely on
YHWH, and “look UP” for our redemption draweth nigh
(Lk 21:28).

To him that made great lights: for his mercy
endureth for ever:
The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for
ever:
The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy
endureth for ever.
-Psalm 136:7-9

in love with Messiah Yeshua,
