Military experts still can’t explain the Six Day War and its miracles
By Leah Rosenberg - October 19, 2019 22739 0
The Six Day War was a miraculous win for Israel, as is every moment of Israel’s existence. You can’t explain it. The only way to explain it is with God.
The Six Day War
During the Six Day War, the odds were against Israel. Israel’s enemies tried to destroy it. They were completely outnumbered. The enemies had more weapons, more people. But the impossible happened. Israel won.
Miracle after miracle. Israel even recaptured the Old City of Jerusalem. You cannot explain the victory of the Six Day War without believing that God protected Israel and fought for them. There is just no rational reason that Israel should have triumphed over the enemy! But it did!
 
Odds Are Always Against Israel
Does it sound familiar? That the odds were against Israel? That seems to be the way history has gone. The odds have been against the Jewish people, yet they continue to exist. Not only do they continue to exist, but they thrive.
As Mark Twain wrote, “If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in the world, in all the ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed, and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other peoples have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?”

Bahrain’s Lost Jews Anticipate Return After Peace with Israel
Bahrain’s dwindling community of less than 50 Jews has been offered a new lease on life in the wake of the signing of this month’s historic Abraham Accords, with many in Israel anxious to reconnect to their homeland.
 
Most former Bahrainis forfeited their passports when making aliyah, so current numbers are unclear. The Jewish Agency has only two formal registrations but numbers are certainly far higher than that. Munir Akirav, 35, born in Givatayim, is one of a small number of Jews of Bahraini origin living in Israel. His mother and her family left Bahrain in 1970.
 
“My personal connection to Bahrain is based on stories, pictures, videos, from my mother’s family,” he says. “The connection is one of nostalgia and longing for a time of which you were never a part. So, for me it’s a very, very strong feeling,” explains the accountant and credit analyst. When he heard the news of the Abraham Accords, overcoming decades of political annexation of Israel, he said he “jumped for joy.” (JPost / VFI News)

Antisemitism is Taking Over College Campuses Across America
By Leah Rosenberg - September 30, 2020 555 0
Many college campuses have become a place of utter Jew-hatred instead of acceptance. The education is not what it used to be, and it is frightening.

Stop the Hate on College Campuses
Are you going to university? Or maybe you have a relative at one of the many college campuses across the United States? It is crucial to be aware of what university students are experiencing throughout North America. Antisemitism is plaguing these institutions.
 
Words like “Intifada” or “violent uprising” and phrases such as “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” is a guise which calls for the destruction of Israel.
 
Yes, Jewish students are intimidated on college campuses. Some are afraid to wear anything distinctly Jewish; some look over their shoulder to make sure no one is trying to attack them. And non-Jewish students are being bombarded by massive pro-Palestinian propaganda.
 
Could this really be happening in America? This is an issue which we cannot ignore and cannot remain silent about. University students are the next generation of American citizens and voters. As long and as much as we are able, every one of us needs to fight this antisemitic, pro-terrorist campaign to make sure that the US remains a safe, decent, and democratic country.

Pompeo: The Chinese Government is Re-Writing the Bible
China continues to persecute religious minorities, rewriting the Bible to make it conform to Chinese Marxist doctrine, and sending Uighurs Muslims to re-education camps, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said.
Speaking during a session at the Values Voter Summit 2020, held virtually, Pompeo said: “We watch today the challenge that Christians and Catholics have to practice their faith inside of China.”
“The Chinese Communist Party is trying to rewrite the Bible itself to ‘Sinicize’ the Christian doctrine,” he added. “That’s unacceptable. That will diminish the Chinese people. We want good things for them.”
China officially recognizes five religions: Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Protestantism, and Catholicism. However, the US Department of State's 2019 Report on International Religious Freedom: China notes that although "the constitution, which cites the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party and the guidance of Marxism-Leninism and Mao Zedong Thought, states that citizens have freedom of religious belief," it "limits protections for religious practice to “normal religious activities” and does not define “normal.” (JPost / VFI News)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. - John 14:6
“God, we ask that you protect all those who face persecution for their beliefs—that you would show them your mercy and love, and grant them freedom from oppression.”

"The United States welcomes the decision by the Governments of Israel and Lebanon to begin discussions on the maritime boundary. This historic agreement between the two parties is the result of nearly three years of intense diplomatic engagement by Ambassador David Satterfield and Assistant Secretary David Schenker," Pompeo said.
 
"Recognizing the positive experience of the Tripartite mechanism, the United States also looks forward to separate expert-level talks to define unresolved issues related to the Blue Line, which offer the promise of another positive step for regional stability," the Secretary of State concluded.

Jenrick gets police protection after threat to ‘burn down’ house over memorial
Cabinet member faced 'death threats' over his backing for the Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre in Victoria Tower Gardens

Proposed design of Westminster Holocaust Memorial in Victoria Tower Gardens
Online trolls have threatened to “burn down” government minister Robert Jenrick’s home over his support for a National Holocaust Memorial in Westminster.
Following a high court ruling on Monday that the Communities Secretary acted properly in his department’s handling of the plans for the new central London memorial, Mr Jenrick told The Telegraph that he was living under police protection after threats to “burn his house down”, while he told The Jewish Chronicle that his family have been facing “death threats”.
A legal challenge brought against the government by the London Historic Parks and Gardens Trust argued there was a conflict of interest in the decision-making process for the location of the Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre.

Mr Jenrick himself was accused of having a “stark conflict of interest” over plans for the memorial outside the Houses of Parliament in Victoria Tower Gardens, in a High Court hearing last month.
 
On Monday, the High Court confirmed that the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government acted properly in its handling of the planning application. Mr Jenrick said “baseless and disgraceful” allegations had been made over his actions.
 
Following the High Court ruling, Mr Jenrick, who is married to the daughter of Holocaust survivors and whose children have been brought up Jewish, said in a statement on Twitter: “The allegations made against MHCLG, myself and the project team by those who seek to stop the memorial were baseless and disgraceful. That I was subject to antisemitic smears for supporting it only confirms its paramount importance.
 
“There will now be an independent planning inquiry at which the arguments for and against will be heard. As the applicant for the project, I will continue to make the case strongly. This critical project is a national symbol of our determination to #neverforget.”
 
An inquiry into the planning application opened today after the application was “called in” last November, by the then housing minister, Esther McVey. Following the inquiry, the final decision over the application will be taken by her successor, Christopher Pincher.
 
The Holocaust Memorial’s location has been controversial since its proposal by David Cameron five years ago. It has been backed by Boris Johnson and Keir Starmer, along with the former prime ministers Theresa May, Gordon Brown, Tony Blair and John Major, more than 170 MPs and peers, and many faith leaders.
 
Opposition has come from some senior Jewish figures, including Baroness Deech, who have challenged the location of the memorial, and the Royal Parks, which said it would have a “significant harmful impact” on the area.

US charges ISIS members linked to murder of Jewish journalist in Syria
Sotloff was a Jewish journalist who went to Syria to cover the war.

The US has flown two ISIS members to the US to face charges for terrorism and the taking of hostages related to the killing of four Americans. The ISIS members had been held in Iraq under the Law of Armed Conflict and are appearing in federal court in the eastern district of Virginia, according to US officials. Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers said it was a solemn day to remember four Americans murdered by ISIS: James Wright Foley, Steven Joel Sotloff, Peter Edward Kassig and Kayla Jean Mueller.
Sotloff was a Jewish journalist who went to Syria to cover the war. Demers noted that Sotloff was a grandson of Holocaust survivors and that he sought to give a voice to those who were vulnerable and victims. Demers said that the US was moved to act because of the families of the fallen and said the US would never rest until justice was done. He vowed to obtain justice for the families and all Americans.

Demers called Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh – the two men brought to the US – terrorists and said they had underestimated American resolve. They will face justice for the “depraved” acts of ISIS. Demers said other members of the ISIS group had faced American arms on the battlefield. “If you survive that you will face American justice in the American courtroom and prospect of many years in prison.” He vowed the US would never forget or quit and pursue ISIS murderers to the ends of the earth.
According to CNN, the two men were charged with conspiracy to commit taking a hostage resulting in death, four counts of hostage-taking resulting in death, one count of conspiracy to murder US citizens, and counts of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists. Even if they are convicted on some of the charges they could face a very long time in prison.
Sotloff came to Israel in 2005 and studied at The Raphael Recanati International School, Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya. He also wrote for The Jerusalem Report. He was kidnapped while reporting in Syria in 2013 and murdered by ISIS in 2014. A memorial service was held for him at Pinecrest Florida’s Temple Beth Am synagogue in September 2014. In August 2015, his parents shared a letter with media that had been smuggled out of Syria. “Everyone has two lives. The second one begins when you realize you only have one. Hug each other every day. Don’t fight over stupid things,” Sotloff wrote. Sotloff’s Jewish identity, and the fact he had Israeli citizenship, was hidden during his time as a hostage. Shirley and Arthur Sotloff, his parents, have continued to campaign and speak out about the life of their son.
Federal officials held the press conference on Wednesday and said the ISIS members had been handed to the FBI. Demers thanked the agents and analysts who are the “bedrock” of the department. He thanked prosecutors and others who have worked on the case.
The attorney general also asked to convey the support of the UK which enabled this prosecution to move forward. The UK has opposed the death penalty and it appears the death penalty for the accused is off the table. The US prosecutors say they humbly accept the responsibility for confronting ISIS.

Washington is determined to prosecute Americans who went to support ISIS. Many countries have not taken back their citizens that were captured in eastern Syria. However, the US says it has sought to take responsibility. “If you have American blood in your veins or American blood on your hands you will face justice,” Demers said.
The US says that this is just one step on the way to getting justice. The US says fighting terrorism is a top priority and that the US has resolve to go after those who support ISIS. The unique operation to bring the ISIS members to the US was long and complex. They were captured in 2018 and held by the Syrian Democratic Forces. They were held in detention and often gave interviews where they seemed to hold court in civilian clothes, sometimes treated with respect by the journalists who interviewed them. They were treated as curiosities and an almost fetish over meeting ISIS members face-to-face. Later in October 2019 – when the US began to withdraw from part of eastern Syria – the men were apparently transported to Iraq. It took another year to bring them back to the US.
The US says that it coordinates support to family members of hostages and supported families after incidents occur. Also the US says that it won’t rest until all US captives are returned, according to the FBI statements during the press conference.
