A Leauki's Writings
Published on May 8, 2010 By Leauki In War on Terror

1. Nationhood and Jerusalem - Did you know that Israel became a nation in 1312 B.C.E., two thousand years before the rise of Islam.

2. Did you know that Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.

3. Did you know that since the Jewish conquest in 1272 B.C.E. the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.

4. Did you know that Arabs have only had control of Israel twice - from 634 until the Crusader invasion in June 1099, and from 1292 until the year 1517 when they were dispelled by the Turks in their conquest.

5. Did you know that for over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital. Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.

6. Did you know that Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran. There are vague references to Jerusalem in the Hadiths - stories about Mohammed - that he stopped his night journey (which the Koran explains took place in a dream!) at the "farther mosque" (or "distant place"). Muslims explain that this means "at the edge of the Temple mount", although no direct reference to Jerusalem or the Temple Mount is made.

7. Did you know that King David established the city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.

8. Did you know that Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Some Muslims (i.e. those between Israel and Saudi Arabia) pray with their backs toward Jerusalem.

9. Arab and Jewish Refugees - Did you know that in 1948 the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty eight percent left without ever seeing an Israeli soldier.

10. Did you know that the Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms. They lost much more posissions than the Arabs who fled from Israel!

11. Did you know that the number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be the same.

12. Did you know that Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own peoples' lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey.

13. The Arab - Israeli Conflict - Did you know that the Arabs are represented by eight separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel defended itself each time and won.

14. Did you know that the P.L.O.'s Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them with weapons.

15. Did you know that under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.

And did you know that despite "peace activists"' lies, Jews BOUGHT the land they lived on. The legend about Jews expelling Arabs and replacing their homes with Jewish homes came about decades after the JNF started buying land.

Nobody, not even the UN, ever proposed that the JNF should get their money back if land is given up for "peace".

I think Bibi should bring that up. Israel is smaller than the land owned by Jews in the Ottoman Empire, most of which was stolen by Arabs with full support of the UN in the century.

What would 1312 BCE be in the Jewish Calendar?

BTW: I hate the term BCE. It is AD/BC or Chinese Year, or Jewish Year.  And I am old enough that I do not have to change because of stupid political correctness.

What would 1312 BCE be in the Jewish Calendar?

5770 - 2000 - 1312 = 2458

I am assuming the author refers to the giving of the law, when the existing nation of Jacob became a nation with laws ready to found a country.

BTW: I hate the term BCE. It is AD/BC or Chinese Year, or Jewish Year.  And I am old enough that I do not have to change because of stupid political correctness.

As you know, I am always politically correct.

I use the term "Eskimo" because saying "Inuit" descriminates against non-Inuit Eskimos. And I avoid using the term "Palestinian" because it is offensive to Jews.

So this is the year of 5780?  I will keep that in mind.  I guess I could have googled it, but I was actually just testing your math.
