(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

On Christmas: I Stand With Israel


Declaration of the Jewish People

Sponsored by:
A concerned Jew

To the Nations of the World:


We, the Jewish people, both in Eretz Yisrael and in the various places of our exile, hereby declare:

1. That the Jewish People are the sole heirs to the Land of Israel, from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea;

2. That all the Jewish people, each and every Jew, and only the Jews, have the right to return to the Land of Israel;

3. That the Jewish People have the right and duty to settle the Land of Israel in its entirety, to work the land, to build industry on it, and to do so respecting its holiness as the Torah commands;

4. That any individual Jew, even with the claim of representing the Jewish people, the people and/or government of Israel, or any representative or ruling authority; has no right to give away the collective right of the Jewish people over the Land of Israel;

5. That we will not accept any declaration, agreement, legislation, court ruling or decree that contradicts our right to the Land of Israel. This includes any instance where our right is only partially recognized, or where another people or entity alien to our people is said to share rights over the Land of Israel;

6. That the name of our land is the Land of Israel, Eretz Yisrael, and that we do not recognize the sovereign validity of any name imposed by foreign conquerors, or any people called after such imposed name;

7. That the capital of the Land of Israel is the entire city of Jerusalem, and that this is an unconditional truth not subject to debate or negotiation. No other people or entity of any sort has sovereign rights over that city, and even the collection of all the nations of the world has no such right;

8. That the Temple Mount is our most Holy place, and that no one has the right to violate its holiness and physical integrity. The remains of the First and Second Temple shall not be touched unless it is for the specific purpose of building the Third Temple;

9. That the State of Israel has the duty to keep the Land of Israel on Jewish hands, and any violation of this duty is to us of no validity. We do not recognize any territorial concession, and no peace may come from such thing.

This world of falsehood, "alma d'shikra" as is called in the Zohar, is fooled into believing that Israel is in a "peace process," and that the sacrifice of land to establish an Arab Palestinian State in the territories liberated in 1967 will bring about peace, prosperity, and progress to all.

Those of us who are not fooled must reply clearly and with a strong voice. What the Bush and Olmert administrations are doing is most harmful, and in the name of peace, they are setting us in the path to permanent war.


Is this valid? Or is it sham?

I believe that Israel has a right to exist.

That so-called "Palestine" does not.

If there were the slightest mote of altruism in the Middle East, all the surrounding Islamic nations would have been falling all over themselves to provide "Palestinians" with their own land. That has not happened.

Which begs the question: why not provide for your brothers? Unless, in their opinion, their very own flesh and blood, their brethren, were somehow not deserving of a small slice of their own country.

When your brother's house suffers a fire, why would you not offer a comforting place for him to lay his head? Temporarily and then, had you the room, permanently?

But no. Those lands were not offered. They would not do. They were never considered.


Only one tract of land would suffice: what Israel possesses -- though it was only by Middle Eastern aggression that Israel acquired that land; small bits of land only acquired following violent invasion into Israeli territory.

My thoughts: if your own kind will not offer you territory, then why should Israel?

How is it that I am wrong? And moreover: "Palestinians" and the entire Middle East shall not be satisfied with merely turning over land to develop "Palestine." Oh no. It is about the entire eradication of not only Israel (aided and abetted by the UN) but the eradication of every Jew worldwide. Period. This isn't about politics. This is about religion -- which trumps every form of politics extant. Therefore:

I STAND WITH ISRAEL.

And there will no longer be a Cana-anite (Palestinian) in the House of the LORD of Hosts in that day.

What is fascinating is the Jerusalem and environs was pretty much a backwater in the Ottoman Empire... not really all that special, even with the importance of three religions there. Once you start dividing it up, however... ahh, then things become important. For all the trumpeting of the Balfour declaration the great influx of Jews was *after* WWII, and with good reason. Even more fun is looking back at the American experience of evangelicals trying to interest the locals in Jeffersonian agrarian views and getting nowhere. That great Antebellum movement by evangelicals didn't catch fire with anyone and the Ottomans were bemused, at best, and bored at worse with these Americans trying to re-establish a Jewish homeland. But then the American evangelical thought that the Jews would *convert* to Christianity once there, which didn't happen overmuch with the natives, not to speak of the few imports.

That would burn itself out by the end of the Civil War in the US and while Americans would have a number of prominent Jews in the State Dept and other areas of government, no one really paid much attention to it. In fact it was seen as a *good* thing as Jews might have a better understanding of the area! They were, however, American Jews and understood things just as well as normal Americans.... *sigh*

President Wilson wasn't even lukewarm on the subject, just forced into it by the British announcement when the US decided to support them in WWI. Wilson had steadfastly done *nothing* about the Armenian genocide that Morgantheau and others had reported about... and that was a continuation of the late 19th century Ottoman Turk work that Americans had protested against and started numerous Armenian-American friendship societies about. The idea of a Jewish homeland had a hard, hard time in the US in the inter-war years: it did grow but nothing like it would just after WWII.

I do, indeed, support the State of Israel as it was taken from an Empire, overseen by a second Empire, carved up by that one and then the people told to make the best they could of it by handing it over to the UN. The UN did a CF manuever thereafter. When two peoples are given a chance to form a Nation and only ONE takes advantage of that and makes something of themselves and the other people *complain*, I will support the doers and not the complainers.

Once you have a Nation your internal laws are your own affair, although abiding by Westphalia is something that is civilized. Hold yourself accountable to treaties you sign and respect other Nations, and I really have very few problems with that, although I will criticize any lack of liberty and such... but I haven't had that problem with Israel which offers more liberty and rights than any of its neighbors do. Beats Turkey by a fair amount I would say and may only now have competition in that realm from Iraq...

Palestinians? Well if they could ever get their act together to form a Nation that can at least find a DICTATOR to take it over, I might consider them to be a Nation. They can't, notably, do even that... it has to say something about a people that can't even figure out how to get a dictatorship going...

Ditto.

the Arabs have enough land, it was they who demanded partition, and that was supposedly dealt with before the UN got involved, it's called Jordan.

If all guns and bombs were removed from the Palestinians there would be peace and the Palestinians would have a state to call home.

If the Israeli's gave up their weapons, all Jews would be dead within 2 days.

I too stand with Israel that is why I could never vote for Ron Paul.

First, you all know that I am a Judaphile and that I visit and am visited by many Jewish bloggers. You all know that I support the nation of Israel and their right to exist.

But, lets take all of the religious stuff out of the picture for a moment. The Brits turned over this territory to the new nation of Israel. Later it was expanded by means of military might in conflicts that had very noble beginnings.

Some would argue that what I say is not true but they would be factually wrong.

I not only side with Israel because they are a democracy in a very undemocratic region, but also because their history plays my heart strings. I see them as yet another Lone Star State.

And about giving up land to the palestinians, that is Israel's business. My objection to it aint worth much.
