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

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.”

“Lifting up the Name of Yeshua
in Israel and in the Nations”

Matthew 1:1-19 in the Aramaic

Matthew Chapter 1

1. The book of the genealogy of Y’shua the Mashiyach,the son of Dawid, the son of Awraham.

2. Awraham fathered Yitz’chak, Yitz’chak  fathered Ya’akov. Ya’akov fathered Yehuda and his brothers.  3. Yehuda fathered Peretz and Zarakh by Thamar.  Peretz fathered Khetzron.  4. Khetzron fathered Aram. Aram fathered Amminadav, Amminadav fathered, Nekhshon.  Nekhshon fathered Salmon.  5. Salmon fathered Bo’az by Rachav, Bo’az fathered Awbed by Rawth, Awbed fathered Ishai.  6. Ishai fathered Dawid the king. Dawid fathered Shlemon by the wife of Awrea.  7. Shlemon fathered Rechav’am, Rechav’am fathered Aviyah, Aviyah fathered Asa.  8. Asa fathered Yahoshapat, Yahoshapat fathered Yoram, Yoram fathered Uziyahu.  9. Uziyahu fathered Yotham, Yotham fathered Akhaz, Akhaz fathered Hizkiyahu.  10. Hizkiyahu fathered M’nasheh, M’nasheh fathered Amon, Amon fathered Yoshiyahu.  11. Yoshiyahu fathered Yochanyahu and his brothers in the captivity of Bavel.  12. And after the captivity now of Bavel, Yochanyahu fathered Sh’altiel, Sh’altiel fathered Zerubavel.  13. Zerubavel fathered Awiud, Awiud fathered Elyakim, Elyakim fathered Azor.  14. Azor fathered Tzadoq.  Tzadoq fathered Achin, Achin fathered El’ichud.  15. El’ichud fathered El’azar, El’azar fathered Matan, Matan fathered Ya’akov.  16. Ya’akov fathered Yosip, the guardian* of Maryam, from whom was born Y’shua, who is called the Mashiyach.  17. Therefore, all the generations from Awraham until Dawid were fourteen generations, from Dawid to the captivity were fourteen generations and from the captivity of Bavel until the Mashiyach were fourteen generations.  18. Now the birth of Y’shua, the Mashiyach, was like this:  While Maryam his mother was betrothed to Yosip, without them being united, she was found pregnant by the Ruach haKodesh. 19. But Yosip, her husband was just and did not desire to expose her, yet he was thinking in secret that he would dismiss her. (Matt. 1:1-19 AENT).

Genealogy of the Messiah:  Who Says Matthew Cannot Count to Fourteen?

Greek NT comes under accusation with blatant mistakes as found in Matthew 1.  Verse 17 asserts 
that the generation count must be 14, 14, & 14, and yet in Greek verses 12-16, one can only find 13 
generations, including Y’shua.  In the Aramaic Peshitta NT, the v.16 Yosip is Maryam’s father, not 
husband: Problem resolved.  Secondly, if she is attached to the Davidic line only by marriage as 
written in Greek, then her offspring cannot be the Messiah. The Peshitta (Eastern Aramaic) text of the New Testament fixes all this.

Third, the Peshitta distinguishes the first Yosip (v.16) from the second (v.19), so the contradiction 
with Luke 3:23 disappears. Fourth, see Matt. 8:9 for another usage of “gowra” as “father” rather 
than “husband.”  Lastly, note that it is inappropriate to double any name in an attempt to balance 
the Greek lists.


* The word gowra designates a protector-male or guardian; the context of this verse determines its specific meaning.  Y’shua elsewhere says “which one of gowra, if he has a son…(Mt.7:9),” obviously “father” is intended.

2 Corinthians 4:6-7 from the Aramaic

Because Elohim, who commanded the light to arise from darkness, has Himself shined in our hearts, that we might be illuminated with the knowledge of the glory of Elohim on the face of Y’shua the Mashiyach.*  7. But we have this treasure in an earthen vessel that the excellence of the power might be from Elohim, and not from us.  (2 Cor. 4:6-7 AENT pg. 542)

* A.G. Roth: This verse strengthens the idea that the glory of Elohim is “reflected” in Y’shua’s face.

Aramaic English New Testament

1 John 4:17-18 from the Aramaic Sources

And hereby is his love perfected with us; that we may have open countenances in the day of judgment; because as he was, so also are we in this world.  18. In love there is no fear; but perfect love casts out fear; because fear exists in peril, and he that fears* is not perfected in love.
(1 John 4:17-18 AENT pg. 658)

* A.G. Roth: This refers to the fear of man, the fear of loss and every other form of fear, except the Fear of YHWH.  The Fear of YHWH helps to perfect the love of YHWH.  A young child is taught about boundaries to protect and sustain the child’s welfare.  The more understanding a child has of their boundaries and environment, the more likely they will not fall into danger.  A child does not have the knowledge of their parent; neither does mankind have all the knowledge that YHWH has.  When YHWH establishes righteous boundaries for mankind, it is only a fool who oversteps them.

Aramaic English New Testament

Definition: Sin

And everyone that practices sin, perpetrates iniquity; for all sin is iniquity. (1 John 3:4 AENT pg. 654).

“…all sin is iniquity.”  Sin and iniquity are equivalent according to the “New Testament,” more aptly called the  Renewed Covenant.  But what is iniquity?

The dictionary defines iniquity as “lack of justice or righteousness; wickedness; injustice.”  The page at Dictionary.com includes a usage example from the Torah (Exodus 34:6-7).  Iniquity (lack of righteousness) can therefore be described as “Lawlessness,” which is “Torah-lessness” for those who consider the Bible to be Divinely inspired by the Creator.

You therefore, my beloved, as you know (these things) beforehand, guard yourselves or else, by going after the error of the Torahless, you fall from your steadfastness.  (2 Peter 3:17 AENT pg.458).

While sin is sin, meaning that sin is Torahlessness, without compromise, keep in mind that there is a difference between the occasional lapse vs. a lifestyle of practicing sin:

Everyone that is born of Elohim does not practice sin because his seed is in him and he cannot sin because he is born of Elohim. (1 John 3:9 AENT pg.654)

Secondly, our Father in Heaven has always been merciful towards those who repent:

YHWH, YHWH El, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. (Exodus 34:6-7).

Aramaic English New Testament

Hebrews 12:1: Two Ways to Improve Your Race

“Therefore let us also, who have all these witnesses surrounding us like clouds, cast from us all encumbrances and sin which is always prepared for us; and let us run with patience the race that is appointed for us.” (Hebrews 12:1 AENT pg.424).

Notice here how we are encouraged to remove ourselves not only from sin, but ALSO from “encumbrances.”

Encumbrances must be somehow different from “sin:”  Why else would the writer distinguish the two using the separator “and?”  Therefore, we can improve our Race by removing (1) sin and (2) encumbrances from our lives.  Here we will focus on #2. However, the NT definition of sin may surprise you: Check here and here.

Back to “encumbrances:”  Are there things in your life which slow down your race, even if they’re not firmly in the “sin” category? Take a moment and prayerfully consider this.

Chocolate may not qualify as sin, but it could be an encumbrance; caffeine and alcohol are arguably in this same category.  With what reading material do we fill our minds?  Which TV shows, movies, music do we allow past the gates of our eyes & ears?  Which relationships hinder our walk, and which friends exhort us higher?  Our expenditures of time, money, and resources: Are these an encumbrance to our race?  It is up to the individual to decide for themselves.

Consider the witnesses who surround us who are mentioned in the previous chapter:  Hebrews 11.  Consider the shortness of this present life compared with eternity.  Are we really running our race with patience, efficiency, with a goal to actually win?

Don’t you know that they who run in the stadium, run all of them; yet it is one who gains the victory.  You run so as to attain.  25. For everyone who engages in the contest restrains his desires in everything. And they run to obtain a crown that perishes; but we, one that does not perish.  26. I therefore so run, not as for something unknown; and I so struggle, not as struggling against air;  27. But I subdue my body, and reduce it to servitude; lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should despise myself.  (1 Corinthians 9:24-27 AENT pg.514.)

May the Messiah Y’shua bless your race.


Do you find the translation of these NT verses to be attractive?  They have been translated into English directly from the Aramaic–the language spoken by Messiah Y’shua.  More info at the link below:

P.S.  The Aramaic-speaking Syrian church has always known without a doubt that the writer of the Letter to the Hebrews was Paul the Apostle.  This fact was only debated in the West, never in the East.

Pic: Sunset in Cyprus with a Lovely Ship at Sea

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.

Philippians 3:20-21 from Aramaic Source Texts

But our concern is with heaven and from thence we expect our Life Giver, our Master, Y’shua the Mashiyach who will change the body of our abasement, that it may have the likeness of the body of his glory according to his great power, whereby all things are made subject to him. (Phil. 3:20-21 AENT)

This is a powerful, encouraging Word.  Our concern is not with earthly things, but Kingdom things and Kingdom issues.  Our earthly physical body will be changed in the end – we will be transformed – puts things into perspective, doesn’t it?  This is the GREAT HOPE.
Backing up a little to verse 17, let’s get more of the context:

Be like me, my Brothers; and contemplate them who walk after the pattern you have seen in us.  For there are many who walk otherwise; of whom I have often told you, and I now tell you with weeping that they are adversaries of the stake of the Mashiyach;  whose end is destruction; whose Elohim is their belly and their glory their shame; whose thoughts are on things of the earth. (Phil. 3:17-19 AENT)

Is your Elohim your belly?  Or rather, is your Elohim the King of kings and the Master of masters?  

Your Elohim, personally speaking, is whom you serve; it is whom you strive to please.  

If your number one priority is your own comfort, your own provision for yourself, even your own diet preferences (“I know the Word says don’t eat such-and-such, but I’ll pick my theologies according to how I want to live; all that old stuff is done away with, right?”) then the answer for you is clear.  If your choices are made according to the ways of the world (“looking out for Number One = mySELF”), then your Elohim is your own belly.  
If, on the other hand, you care to “be like Paul,” and to “contemplate them who walk after the pattern you have seen in us,” then you will not serve your belly; and you will not be “adversaries of the stake (cross) of the Mashiyach.”  
Paul said “be like me” in these other places as well:


1 Cor 4:16  (and my ways v.17) 
1 Cor 11:1,2
1Thess 4:1-7, 11
2 Tim 3:10
So, what is Paul’s “way of life?”
For direct evidence, check out these passages:
Acts 20:16
Acts 21:20-24
Acts 24:14
Acts 25:8
Acts 26:20
Blessings to you, in the name of Y’shua the Messiah.

Aramaic English New Testament, Closeup



Here’s a close-up of the Aramaic English New Testament:  As you can see, the Aramaic text from the original Eastern Peshitta is on the right-hand page, and the matching English translation is on the facing page to the left.  מריא being the Aramaic cognate for the Tetragrammaton is represented in English as “Master YHWH,” and you can see for yourself that Holy Spirit, or Ruach haKodesh is truly רוחא דּקודשָא on the Aramaic side, the equivalent of the Hebrew רוח הקודש.  The precious name of the Messiah “Yeshua” or “Y’shua” is seen in the upper-right hand side of this snapshot from Acts 2 as ישוע which is spelled the same in either Hebrew or Aramaic.


Many other names are transliterated in the English to sound as they are in Hebrew/Aramaic, such as “Shlichim” (Apostles, or “Sent-Out Ones”) and “Urishlim” (Yerushalayim/Jerusalem).


The Aramaic is written in “Hebrew Block Letters,” or Ashurri Script, in the current 4th Edition and also the previous 3rd Edition.  In earlier editions, the Aramaic was printed in the Estrangelo font.  In actuality, both Alep-beets originate from Aramaic, which lent alep-beets to Hebrew and Arabic as well.

Background on the Itamar Massacre in Samaria

Many of us in Israel have been trying to make sense of the March 12 attack on a family quietly sleeping during Shabbat here in Samaria, Israel.  

Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu reported on 13 March 2011 in Israel National News that victims of the Itamar massacre were already subject to an earlier attack.  The Rabbi Fogel family was expelled from Gush Katif in 2005 when then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon caved into international pressure to remove Jews from sovereign Israeli territory in Gaza as a “peacemaking” measure.  It goes without saying that Israel has received no peace in return for that land.  Instead, all Israel got was the 2006 Second Lebanon War in the north, amidst over 4,000 rockets fired from Gaza into the south.

 Rabbi Uri Fogel was not one of these religious types who expect State benefits while refusing the mandatory military service.  No, Uri Fogel served his country as an IDF tank unit officer.  After being expelled from Netzarim in Gaza, he relocated his family to Ariel.  They then moved to nearby Itamar two years ago where he taught ex-IDF soldiers in the post-high school yeshiva, or religious school.  

Then, they were murdered on Shabbat, 12 March 2011.  Knifed in their sleep while a breach in the Itamar security fence went unreported to the local army unit.

When trying to understand what happened, I try to look at the events leading up to the event.  One month prior to the Itamar Massacre, Israel removed the nearby roadblock checkpoint (Harriet Sherwood, “Binyamin Netanyahu calls on world to act after killing of Jewish settlers,” The Observer, 13 March, p.15.  Reported on www.guardian.co.uk ).  Why was a checkpoint removed just before an attack?

 During the week before the massacre, Israel was involved in peace talks with the Palestinians.  On Thursday 10 March, envoys of the Quartet met in Israel separately with Israelis and Palestinian representatives.  (“Quartet ‘Giving Up Hope’ Of Renewing Israeli-Palestinian Talks,” Euro-Asian Jewish Congress, 17 March 2011, http://eajc.org/page32/news22744.html)   

 Since the massacre, any possible hope of progress from these talks has evidently been undone.  (“Massacre Derails Possible Israel-Palestine Peace Talks,” Mamta Badkar, 14 March 2011, http://businessinsider.com/a-massacre-in-itamar-hurts-israel-palestine-peace-agreement-2011-3)

So, the Itamar massacre has made it difficult for peace talks to continue.  What is the international response?  Force a Palestinian state anyhow.  As Barak Ravid wrote in Haaretz, “Growing pessimism about the prospects of a breakthrough in Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations is prompting new international calls for the unilateral establishment of a Palestinian state.” (Barak Ravid, Haaretz, 17 March 2011, “Quartet ‘Giving Up Hope’ of Renewing Israeli-Palestinian Talks”

 Already on Tuesday 8 March 2011, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe had hinted that the E.U. might recognize a Palestinian state is a “possibility that should be kept in mind.” 

The international community wants to force a Palestinian state down Israel’s throat unilaterally.  To do this, they must stifle peace talks secretly while supporting them openly.  The answer:  murder “settlers” who insist on living on Biblical land controlled by the State of Israel.  This cancels any conciliatory stance that Israel might have gained, giving the international community reason to step in and force the Two-State “Solution.” 

The last time settlers were murdered was in Hebron in September 2010, just prior to direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians.  I find it strange that settlers are killed when peace talks are in process.

In the course of things, Rabbi Uri Fogel may well be added to Barry Chamish’s list.  What list?  The list of those secretly killed by Israel for political reasons:  Rabbis Shapiro, Kahane, Lieberman, as well as the attacks on Rabbi Chaim Duckman, and Moledet leader Miriam Lapid’s family.   (Barry Chamish, “The Secret War Against the Settlers,” http://israel-politics.tripod.com/War-Against-Settlers.htm, http://barrychamish.com)

Oddly, a man with the same first name as that of the mourning settlement, Itamar Ben Gvir, sued Barry Chamish several years ago for calling him a Shabak agent.  Chamish named Ben Gvir as a provocateur complicit in pushing peaceful protests beyond the limit in Netzarim, Gush Katif, leading to the justification of the expulsion.  So, Itamar Ben Gvir and his hoods made the settlers look incalcitrant.  This gives the Israeli military the excuse they needed to mistreat the settlers and expel them.  Then, one settler family, a rabbi with his wife and children, winds up living in Itamar where they are savagely murdered.  It begins with Itamar and ends with Itamar.  Or does it?


I just got a phone call from a member of our home Bible study group:  A terrorist has exploded a bus near the central Bus Station in Jerusalem.  This, in addition to the 50 mortar attacks on civilians last week.  And, the massacre in Itamar. 


All of this pressure builds up toward dividing the Land of Israel into indefensible slices.  Giving land to her sworn enemies in return for empty promises of peace. “Peace, peace, but there is no peace.”


“Behold they shall surely gather together, but NOT BY ME,” says YHWH in Isaiah 54.  “Whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.” 



¶ Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith YHWH.

 2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;

 3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

 4 Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.

 5 For thy Maker is thine husband; YHWH of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

 6 ¶ For YHWH hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.

 7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.

 8 In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith YHWH thy Redeemer.

 9 For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

 10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith YHWH that hath mercy on thee.

 11 ¶ O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.

 12 And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.

 13 And all thy children shall be taught of YHWH; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

 14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.

 15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by Me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.

 16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

 17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of YHWH, and their righteousness is of Me, saith YHWH.
