2,000 Year Old Ossuary: Genuine  Found in Israel

Nadene Goldfoot
An ossuary made of stone to hold the bones of the deceased has been discovered and tested and deemed to be genuine.  The writings on it indicate it is the relative of the high priest Caiaphas who was mentioned in the New Testament as an adversary of Jesus. 

It is of Miriam, daughter of Yeshua, son of Caiaphas the priest of Maaziah which is the name of a subset of the priestly caste, which would be the lineage of Cohens from Aaron.  She was from Beth Imri which is either a family name of the name of a village.  It could be both. 

This ossuary had been plundered from a tomb in the Valley of Elah which is southwest of Jerusalem.   There have been false ossuaries brought to everyone's attention that turned out to be forgeries, but this appears to be the real mccoy.

 Terror Attack in Beersheba
Nadene Goldfoot
If not a terrorist, a meshugana attacked a 40 year old man with a hammer and then sprayed tear gas at a cab driver causing light to moderate injuries to them both.  They had to be taken to the nearby medical center for treatment.  However, the police think it more likely to have been an act of terrorism. 

There isn't a man around that hasn't had IDF training, so this certainly must have come on quickly where they were unable to protect themselves or disarm the perpetrator. 

I imagine this will put all civilians in a state of awareness at a higher level, now.  Trust is going to wane if it hasn't already of possible terrorists. 

Beersheba (Be'er Sheva)  in the Negev is only 50 miles from Jerusalem.  It is Israel's 7th largest city with a population of 194,300.  It is an important city dating back to biblical days with Abraham and King David.,7340,L-4088008,00.html

Eyes on Missiles Reaching Lebanon
Nadene Goldfoot
Lebanon has a population of 4,196,453 of which 60% are Shi'a/Sunni as of 2010. Christians are no doubt in danger.   Lebanon's neighbor is Syria with a population of 19,405,000 with 90% Sunni Muslims.  Syria is a collaborator with Iran with a population of 70,495,782 with 98% Shi'a Muslims, and both have the goal to destroy Israel.  Right now Syria is involved with a fight with rebels to take down the regime of their President Bashar al-Assad, who supports the Hizbollah terrorists.  Syria fired on protesters on Friday, killing 20 of their own people of which two were children age 12 and 13.  This is the country whose TV program I watched from Israel between 1980-1985 where their soldiers bit into puppies and snakes showing how brave they were.  To me it showed they were outright crazy. 

Due to the fact that Syria is a little worried, they have moved hundreds of their long range Iranian missiles into Lebanon for safe-keeping.  This has been going on for the past two weeks.  Not only missiles, but Syrians are also entering Lebanon.  Some must be the rebels escaping persecution.  Others could be the missile caretakers. 

In the meantime, Iran is having a military exercise on Monday trying out their various long range missiles.  Some are said to be able to reach the center of Israel and the USA military bases that are within range.  They continue to deny using their atomic capabilities for missiles.  Sure, and the moon is made of mozzarella cheese. 

Israel, a population of about 7,441,700 of which 5,795 are Jews and 1,571,000 are Arabs who can be Sunni, Christian or Druze,  must watch their Lebanon/Israel border on the north.  They can be attacked at any time.  Gone are the days when Israel's pal was Major Saad Haddad of the Lebanese Christian Militia who helped to guard the border.  When he died, Hizbollah took over the area.   Now Israel must also watch what exits from Iran as well.

French Ignore Plea from UN:   First in Flotilla Against Israel
Nadene Goldfoot
Six Frenchman on their ship have left this morning from Corsica to be the first in the seas to be a part of the flotilla sailing to break through the blockade of Gaza. 

The UN has put out the statement not to be a part of the flotilla.  Israel has every right to protect itself against ships that could be carrying weapons into Gaza to be used against Israel.  There is no shortage of supplies in Gaza, so they are only getting publicity for themselves to be used against Israel.

The rest of the fleet plans to leave next week and includes two freighters they say are carrying medical supplies.  They should reach the Gaza port by the 30th of June or 1st of July. 

I hope they all carry cameras and plan to tour Gaza to see what a remarkable city it is without perishing from want.  Maybe they'll even notice the 300 trucks that go into Gaza every day delivering supplies that Israel brings.  They may even see Gaza with more produce than they have in their own home towns and will buy goods to bring back. 

Israel is going to have to search every ship to make sure that they are not smuggling in weapons.  Hamas is getting them somehow.  Attacks on Israel have already started up again.   To me, by joining this flotilla, the participants are showing a complete lack of regard for Israelis' lives.  They have joined the side of Israel's enemies who wish to destroy her.  Why?  They do not believe Israel or even the reticent UN in the fact that there is no deprivation going on in Gaza.  They care not for what their bombardments have done to Israeli citizens.  They are siding with people who want to destroy Israel.,7340,L-4086890,00.html

Bombing of Israel from Gaza has started up again.  The last rocket attack happened on April 18th.  Tuesday is started in again.  Kassam rockets, mortars from Gaza were shot into Western Negav of Eshkol's regional council.  This is the 2nd attack in less than a week.

PLO Covenant Against Israel of 1968
Why Palestinians Refuse to Talk Peace with Netanyahu
Nadene Goldfoot
33 Articles reworked in 1968 use the word covenant showing how holy they feel these goals are.

Definition of a Palestinian: Arab nationals who were living permanently in Palestine until 1947.  They will also consider Jews as Palestinians who also were living permanently in Palestine until the beginning of the Zionist invasion.  The catch is that they consider the Zionist invasion to be 1917, the year of the Balfour Declaration.  They most likely don't even consider Jews born in Israel after 1917 staying.  They would kick them out.  So if you're 94 and older and were born in Israel, you can stay.  How nice.  They plan an expulsion of Jews like Spain did in 1492. 

They feel there is no room for a Jewish state in their Palestine. Only the Palestinian Arabs have a legal right to self-determination, not the Jews.  Their Palestinian identity goes from father to son.  The Zionist occupation does not top them from using their Palestinian identity.  So even though a family has been living in the Lebanon for the past 3 generations, they are not Lebanese, they are Palestinians.  I can understand that.  My grandmother was born in Lithuania.  Though she didn't move away, Lithuania found itself in Poland and then again in Russia.  She maintained that she was a Litvak through it all, even after moving to the USA.  But that was my grandmother.  I am not a Litvak.  My grandmother's family were Litvaks.  We are still all Jewish beause that is our religion, not our nationality. 

They only consider one way to liberate Palestine-that is by armed struggle.  They want to eliminate Israel.  They expect their people to prepare themselves for war, to sacrifice their wealth and life to restore the land to themselves.  It's a national duty.  There is to be no peace or compromise with Israel.  Their 3 mottos are:
national unity, national mobilization and liberation. They are against being absorbed by their Arab brethren. 

All Arabs and their rulers must unite against Israel and do all they can to support violence to destroy Israel.
We here in the West thought they were rioting to attain a democracy.  Here it is to get leaders in that are against Israel. 

They're changing their image with what they say to others, like they no longer use the slogan, "Throw the Jews into the sea,"  as this was getting bad press.  Another bit of two facedness they don't mean is saying that their goal is to have a "democratic Palestinian state" with freedom for all religions."  They don't mean a word of it.  It's just their propaganda.  It was adopted in 1965. 

The PLO murdered and destroyed the Lebanese Christians.  Lebanon was a unique state with a minority of Christians who held presidency.  For revenge, the Christians killed a whole group of them in 1982.  They didn't  treat the Lebanese citizens with dignity and respect.  They even are divided now between Hamas and Fatah, both part of the PLO terrorists then, and have killed each other in the war for power. 

Anything they do to destroy Israel are called "defensive" acts.  They figure Jews cannot have self-determination.  What happend in 1947 doesn't count at all.  They don't see Jews as a people like they see themselves.  Jews are only members of a religion.  They're busy denying any of the Jewish history recorded in the bible. 

Any turncoat Palestinians trying to be moderate and would go for peaceful resolutions to the conflict are to be murdered and/or intimidated.  There can be no settlement based on compromise.

They consider Zionism as the enemy of the world.  They compare Jews to Nazis.  They call on the 3rd World Nations to support them against the "illigitimate" Israel. 

Article 24 states that they believe in the principles of justice, freedom, sovereignty, self-determination, human dignity and the right of peoples to exercise them, but just not to Jews of Israel.  Saying this, they still rely on terror for everyone, and deny them to many Arabs.  Again, it's a propaganda motto. 

They have the PLO as the leader umbrella organization for all terrorist groups  that are fighting Israel.  At this time, they are still debating who will be the head leader, Fatah or Hamas.  They say they will not interfere with other Arab states but have meddled in Jordan and Lebanon which has brought destruction to those states.  Now they have their own internal problems of leadership.  The PLO had close connections with Saddam Hussein in Iraq.  Arab governments can manipulate the PLO for their own reasons. 

They consider it their duty to terrorize countries that are friendly to Israel.  Because of this fear, European governments have freed almost all the Arab terrorists caught in their countries.  How nice it is to be able to hide in so many lovely countries and get away with terrorism!  Just be a terrible bully!

Hamas says that the Day of Judgement will not come abut unil Moslems fight to kill the Jews.  They quote the Koran in this:  when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees, the stones and trees will say, "there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.. Their only solution is Jihad.  To them, it's a waste of time to have any initiatives, proposals or international conferences.  We shouldn't deal with these vain endeavors.  To them, Palestine is an Islamic land and that's that. 

By reading these "covenants" I can see why they have acting in these strange ways with Netanyahu.  He has vainly tried with all his might to come to some way of achieving peace.  We have given up all of Gaza, and so much more only to have all our endeavors slapped back into our face.  I hope Hillary and Obama read these goals and come to the realizsation of what Israel has to deal with.  It's a mind-set still stuck in the 700's.  Peaee is the last thing on their minds.  Their sickness is viral and has infected their whole people.  During the past 63 years I can see so many nations and peoples that have just aided and abetted them.  They have showed fear, have cowtowed, and have unknowingly built them into the fighting force they are.

West Bank Arabs Rioting Against Israelis
Nadene Goldfoot
The Middle East is in an uproar with countries trying to overpower their Kings and despots.  It's been affecting the Arabs of the West Bank as well.  May saw a lot of rioting going on.  Israel's remembrance of it's birthday saw a lot of Arabs rioting, as well as on Jerusalem Day in June.  Their disappointment in our success was displayed in their Nakba Day, and was again celebrated with rioting. 

Riots started on the Friday the 10th this month.  It happened at the Western Wall near the Moroccan Gate after the Muslim prayers and continued with around 200 people in a village with people armed with bats and iron chains who also burned a Jewish hut, tent and holy books in the prayer corner. 

There have been quite a few flare-ups of rioting and stone throwing, and worse over the past three days in the West Bank against Israelis.  Each riot involves about 50 Arabs attacking border policem or IDF.  Bilin has seen 50 rioters, Dir Nizam 50, Umm Salamana 50, SE of Ramallah 40, and Qalandiya 100.  The border policeman there was lightly injured.  The rioters were throwing flares at the soldiers and firebombs, molotov cocktails and many many rocks.

There are two villages northwest of Ramallah in the Judea/Samaria area.  One is the Jewish village of Nili.  A few men were using bulldozers on their land.  About 50  Arabs from Deir Qaddis didn't like that at all.  They were thinking that the Jews were coming too close to their property, so they went out and stoned the soldiers that were protecting the Nilins.  They didn't just throw little stones, they were heaving huge ones in what turned out to be a big riot.

One soldier was attacked in this violence so badly that the stones shattered his leg.  Then the crowd all advanced towards him even closer while still throwing stones.  He opened fire into the air, then as they quickly came closer, shot at them with him live rounds.  Another soldier was also wounded in the spree.  The soldiers then used rubber bullets and tear gas on the attackers.  Several Arabs were injured. 

Four more villages saw riots, another involving 100 rioters, one with 50 and two more with 30 people each involved. 

Everyone is pressing Israel to sit down to talk peace with the Palestinians, but they haven't even decided who is going to head up their people, Fatah or Hamas.  That's still undecided.  Besides, that, their people are rumbling against Israel, showing that they haven't got peace in mind at all.  Besides the people heating up, so is the temperature.  It was Abbas of Fatah who refused to sit down and talk.  Now it's Abbas who is going to have to show the world and Israel that he is ready to make peace after all, and the big step they must take is to finally accept a Jewish Israel in the midst of their Muslim territory.

New Tactic for July 21, 2011 By Gazan Arabs
Nadene Goldfoot

The Palestinians are planning to go to the U.N. in September to get votes for creating Palestine without sitting down to the table with Israel to talk about peace.  Obama is even against this and said the two countries must first agree on a peace plan before this happens. 

This doesn't deter them.  They're still planning on using force to create their state instead of having to get along with Israel by making peace.  They are planning a Day of Loyalty on July 21st where they have sent out a message on facebook for all Arabs everywhere to form a human chain and to gather outside Israeli embassies first.  This is to pressure the international community to accept them as a state. 

Again, Israel cannot allow an immense human chain to break their way into Israel as no country would ever allow such a thing.  They are trying to cause deaths and injuries on their side to gain sympathy, and therefore their absurb way of getting recognition.  One wonders if all these people don't mind leaving their jobs and families to do such a dangerous stunt where they might lose their lives. 

It looks like Britian might cave into this type of pressure and do so.  It doesn't take much for England to be anti-Israel. England has had a long history of anti-semitism,  as did much of Europe,  and were not very helpful in the beginning of Israel's existence.   In fact, they made promises they did not keep.    Here we have Israel going through all the hoops with England getting established legally in the U.N, and yet they might throw all this out by allowing in a state that professes to have as its goal to destroy Israel.   To allow a Palestine now is to be against Israel.  The Arabs already have at least 47 states where the majority population is Muslim.  It's not like they have to have another one in order to survive.  That's exactly how Israel feels.  This is our only Jewish state in the world, and the world should know how anti-semitic they have beeen in history past and present to understand how we feel. 

The 47 largest Muslim dominated states in the world are as follows in order of population size from 100% to 50% Muslim: Indonesia, with 228,582,000  of which 86.1% are Sunni Muslims, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Egypt, Turkey, Iran, Sudan, Algeria , Afghanistan., Morocco, Iraq, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Syria, Kazakhstan, Niger,Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal, tunisia, Guinea, Somalia, Azerbaijan, tajikistan, sierra Leone, Libya, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Chad, Lebanon, Kuwait, Albania, Mauritania, Oman, Kosovo, The Gambia, Bahrain, Comoros, Qatar, Djibouti, Brunei Darussatam, and Maldives. 

Saudi Arabia is 100% Sunni Muslim but is not counting the whole population.  All Saudi citizens are regarded as Wahhabi, but they have over 8 million foreign workers in the country that are not citizens.  Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy of 27,730,000 Muslim citizens.  There is no data or information about their religious beliefs of the workers, but you can count on one thing; they are not Jewish.  They are most likely Muslims of other sects and perhaps Christians

June 5th-6th Invasion of Israel 2011

Nadene Goldfoot
So far, 4 Syrians have been killed in their attempt to invade Israel.  About 10 have been wounded.  Israel IDF warned them first in Arabic and then with warning shots before taking more serious steps.  Syria did not attempt to turn their people away from this. Last month they had actually goaded them, more likely.  The Syrians are having their own troubles and were trying to get rid of attention on themselves. 

Lebanon did, however.  They tried to prevent their citizens from the invasion. 

Judea and Samaria saw about 200 Palestinians marching to the Kalandia crossing into northern Jerusalem.  They threw rocks at the soldiers. 

In the meantime, the French had been trying to get Netanyahu and Abbas together for more peace talks, and Netanyahu politely thanked him for his help but said that it was impossible to negotiate or to attain a peace agreement with people devoted to their destruction.  This is so logical.  It seems to me that France could work on getting the Arabs to see the error of their ways first and come around to accepting the fact that there is indeed a Jewish state in their midst that they need to make friends with first.  Let's see.  How did we ever get Hitler's Germany to become peaceful?  Hmmmm.  I note that we weren't trying to obliterate Germany at all, just come to peace. 

Resource: Arutz Sheva
Fox News, reported by Rina: about 13 Syrians now killed according to Syrian TV.  70 Syrians have been killed by Syrian government who were trying to overthrow their government.  I saw the picture of the attack and of throwing rocks; very scary.  It sounds so mild just writing about it, but the scene is all violence.

Planned Invasions on Israel
Nadene Goldfoot
This weekend will be the scene of a mass march upon Israel from the Palestinians and their cohorts.
"The "Naksa Day" demonstrations are the latest addition to a comprehensive strategy intended to de-legitimize the State of Israel. A newly created day of protest, an-Naksa ("the setback" in Arabic) aims to commemorate the Arab defeat in the 1967 war where Israel preemptively struck against enemies following aggressive actions against Israel.

Israel is intent on maintaining a peaceful state of affairs but must preserve its territorial integrity, as well as the obligation to protect its civilians."

 A flotilla will be coming supposedly the end of June or in July to breech  Israel's blockade on Gaza  even though the UN secretary has advised flotilla participiants not to do this.   Israel knows that Hamas in Gaza have stockpiled more than 10,000 missiles already and somehow the number is growing.  In April 9th Hamas shot 133 rockets at 7 Israeli cities.  Egypt, under their new leadership, has opened up Gaza with an entrance to Egypt. 

Now the Palestinians have planned a fly-in for July 8th.  500 people have planned to fly in to protest the security fence in Judea/Samaria.  They don't want to accept the fact that this is keeping more Israelis alive than when they didn't have it. 

Palestinians plan on flying in from Europe, North and South American, Asia and Africa.  Most will be flying out from Germany.  There are 15 other organizations including the ever-there International Solidarity Movement who also have weekly protests planned. 

The Hamas linked website is telling people to take commercial flights on Saturday and Sunday for marches, rallies and most likely riots in Israel. 

Their practice session was in May when Israel commemorated their 63rd birthday.  Some were killed during that invasion.  Israel is more prepared now.

Israel Ready for 1967 Six Day War Remembrance

Nadene Goldfoot
On behalf of Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, Hamas Palestinians and others marched into Israel on May 15th to remember regrettably their Nakba Day when Israel was deemed a state in the UN in 1948. 

After that invasion, Israel is ready for them to remember the Six Day War this June when Israel won after being attacked in 6 days.  That 3rd large war started on June 5th and ended on June 10th.  Egypt (then called the United Arab Republic), Jordan and Syria along with Iraq had circled Israel .  They had 465,000 Arab troops made up of many Palestinian guerillas of Fatah, the Gaza Strip and Lebanon, 2,800 tanks and 800 aircraft ready to attack. 

This all started when Israel was trying to make peace with Egypt, who were also not about to recognize Israel.  At the same time, the USA and France put an embargo on Israel so that she could not receive anymore arms.  At the same time, the Soviets supplied the Arabs with all their arms. 

Though we may have Ha Shem on our side, the war was also won through the blood, sweat and tears of our young IDF soldiers.  It wasn't fun being in a tank on the Sinai desert in June.  My neighbor in Safed was one of those young men and suffered a great deal from it. 

Netanyahu has given directions to Israelis to protect our borders but to use restraint as the Arabs think of this as their Naksa Day.  Nothing like an invasion to remember what we had gone through 44 years ago.

Not Occupied Territories
Judea and Samaria are not occupied territories.  They are really disputed territories.  In 1967 Jordan was illegally occupying them and had been in 1948 without any legal claim.  Therefore, Israel won the War of 1967 and gained them from Jordan, one of the countries attacking Israel. 

The following video explains it all.
Illegal Flotilla Due End of June
Nadene Goldfoot
15 ships are expected to come and provote Israel by trying to break the blockade on the Gaza Strip.  Israel has Gaza blocked because of their control by Hamas, a terrorist organization whose goal is to destroy Israel.  Hamas shells Israel, demonstrating that they are not peaceful, and that they are sticking to their charter which says they are out to destroy Israel.  Israel is making sure that any ships coming are not carrying weapons that would be used on Israel.

The ships are from the Turkish IHH organizsation.  They are also coming from the Hamas instigated "Free Gaza Movement."  The end of June is the expectation of when they will arrive. 

According to International Maritime Law, Israel is within their rights.  The law is that Gaza fishing boats can  be 3 km from the Strip but other ships can't be within 20 km of Gaza.  Israel is within the law to intercept and take control of any ship that declares their intention to sail to Gaza, even when they are not yet in an area that close to it.

The intention of this flotilla is to provoke Israel.  The U.N. Secretary has said that it is illegal.  The one last year was illegal also.  Gaza is not hurting for anything except possibly weapons to be used against Israel, and yet they have found ways to get those.  Trucks from Israel go in all the time with necessary supplies. 

One thing the people could do to make life perfect would be to vote in a group that is not Hamas and would have peaceful intentions wanting to be good neighbors of Israel.  Voting in a group bent on Israel's destruction is not a wise thing to do if they want Israel to lift any blockade.  Israel must do this for their own self preservation.  Groups that are sucked into the Gazan propaganda are only helping a side bent on destruction of Israel.
