Muhammad's Knowledge of Jews-But Palestinians Never Heard of Us

Nadene Goldfoot                                               Moses 

High-ranking PA figures claim that the Jews do not have religious or historical claims to the Holy Land.  

The fact is that Muhammad recognized that Jews were "people of the book."  "The Book" was the Bible or Torah.  They were given a special status along with Christians; also people of the book, as Dhimmis.  They could not be killed, but had to pay a higher tax than the rest of the people, sort of like paying for "protexia, protection.  They had a lot of other abominable things heaved on their shoulders as well, things they couldn't do because of their inferior status.  Dhimmitude was like being a 2nd or 3rd class citizen.  

 Palestinian Arabs such as the PA  don't want to believe or have anyone else know the history of Jews in Palestine. Yet  Muslims have our prophets as their prophets.  They regard Moses as a prophet.  Where to they think they came from?  Do they realize that prophets were Jews?  

Our Torah ( 5 Books of Moses) and Tanach (Old Testament to Christians)  is our record as Jews of being in Palestine.and before it was dubbed "Palestine." Its ancient names were Israel and Judah.    It's a book filled with our genealogy and the geography of the land.  It's so interesting to everyone that they've even made movies about episodes.  It's graphic in descriptions and details.  This is our record of our history.  Yet they deny it.

How anyone can listen to such statements with a straight face is unbelievable or take them seriously.  Even archaeology has proved our existence there.  

In Albert's interview,  he discovered that the Muslims think that if they recognize Israel as a Jewish state,  it would mean accepting the end of their own history and ties and right to Palestine.  Of course!  They have created a myth about being there for 2,000 years, convincing other Muslims far and wide of this.  Such a rumor has traveled as far as Pakistan and Afghanistan, India and who knows where else.  Now they feel they can't lose face by admitting it was all make believe.  

                               King David of Israel (1010-970 BCE) 

Actually, the Palestinian history  in Israel really started with the return of Russian Jews and others around 1880 in the 1st Aliyah movement.  They came in droves after them looking for jobs as they heard they were building.  When asked, most said they were Syrians in those days.  They found some jobs in Tel Aviv.  

There were also some Jews there that had never left the land but had converted to Islam in order to survive in the Ottoman Empire, and possibly even earlier. They're part of the Palestinian Muslims of today.   Remnants of their history are being preserved by Israeli researchers who have discovered this.  One has but to examine the homes they live in to see the star of David and other mementos of Jews  having lived there long ago.  

                                        King Solomon

There were some Arabs  who had purchased land but never used it for much.  They in turn sold it to Jews at very high prices and left for better places such as Damascus or Cairo or even Paris.  

They need to find their own history and will if they dig deep enough and do some good research on census records and such.  They would find living in the neighboring states as part of their heritage and all the history that would go with that.  However,  there is no history of a Palestinian people.  They were not a people.  They are families that have been living in what was initially called Palestine by the Romans who chose that word as an eraser:  They wanted to erase the history of the Jews as well.  It was easier to break Jews with, like horses, to make them obey, to be slaves, to take away their spirit.  That's what the Romans did to people who had been strong.  They took away the name of their country and renamed it.  

Jews were also called Palestinians before the birth of Israel on May 14, 1948.  The land had been in the Ottoman Empire's hands up to WWI for 400 years.  They were on the side of the Germans during WWI, and lost the war, and by doing so, they lost their empire.  This is something that the Arabs do not want to accept, but then they fought on the British side.  Because of that, they were rewarded by the British who helped them enter Palestine illegally and didn't record it, and by giving them 80% of the Jewish Homeland that was set aside for the Jews to have when the British mandate came to its 30 year end.  
So when they insist that there were never a Jewish people, you'd better check first to see if they even know how to read.  They are denying Muhammad who knew Jews in Medina and who read aloud on the streets for all to hear the stories from the Torah.  According to their own Koran, he even flew there on his flying horse, Buraq,  before he died which was in 632 CE.  He never used the word-Jerusalem, though, but said he went to the farthest mosque.  However, the Koran is full of some insights of his relationship with Jews.  

So, aren't they besmirching Emir Feisal's good name who had agreed to the Jews returning to Palestine and building their state?  By denying that the Jews came from the Holy Land, aren't they in effect calling Muhammad a liar?

RETALIATION: Retaliation of 15 Year old Palestinian; Retaliation of Rockets From Gaza Starting Now? IS Leader Calling for Jihad

Nadene Goldfoot                                     

Retaliation of all the rockets being shot from Gaza into Israel is starting.  A warning was given of 48 hours from Israel.  That was up another 48 hours later or more, but   after Saturday's long distance rocket just barely missing Be'er Sheva, the IDF air force went in and hit targets where rockets are shot from at 3:16 am this morning.  No one was injured or hit but they did do damage.  Jerusalem is damaged, too, from all the rioting going on from the murder of the 15 year old. 

Israel took out 10 terror targets in Gaza. One target was a Fajr missile storage facility.  They destroyed a weapons making factory as well and a Hamas building and a tunnel.                                

Rioting and destruction has been going on in Jerusalem ever since a Muslim boy's burned body was found  right at the time of the burial of the 3 Jewish boys who were kidnapped, bound and shot.  The Muslim population were going crazy in anger, though we knew at the time that Hamas was responsible for the murders of the Israeli boys and the reaction of that came from the frantic police and IDF who were searching for them.  It took 2 weeks to find their half buried bodies outside of Hebron.  This caused a lot of Palestinians to be rounded up and taken in to be questioned, but the Israelis didn't become violent about it.  It was a pretty reasonable outcome considering that Hamas and even Fatah have been goading their people into taking such action.
But for the Israelis? They're not calling the murderers heroes or passing out candy like the Muslims had reacted to the death of the 3 Jewish teens.  The murderers will be prosecuted.   There is nothing in our teaching or programming that would cause anyone to be vindictive and take the law into their own hands to get even.  Yet, that is Israel's police conclusion.  They are holding 3 Jews, of which a few are minors.  They haven't been charged with the murder yet, as the investigation is still ongoing.  

I'm an addict of the USA's Law and Order.  I see crazy reasons on that program for killings and what the police have to go through to actually bring a person to court and get a conviction.  Each country has their own laws and ways of dealing with it.  In the USA one is innocent until proven guilty.  In England, one is guilty until proven innocent.  Israel follows the American way.  
What I know is that if true, the guilty Jews were more than stupid.  We live by the Golden Rule; Don't do to others what you don't want others to do unto you.  Murder is one of the 10 Laws that we are not to commit.  Revenge is not allowed in our culture.  I don't like to see our people sink to the level of our opponents.  That's why we have rules of ethics and morals.
In the heat of the sadness of realizing that children, two 16 year olds and one 19 year old had been kidnapped right after their attendance of a school of which a 16 yr old was also an American, a Yeshiva, that would have turned them into rabbis, it's easy to see some young hotheads could have felt the need to retaliate. 

 All the country were in mourning.  The emotions and vibrations were electric at that time.  Anger was being held back, but not with whoever killed this Palestinian boy.  I still find it hard to believe that it was Jews who acted in revenge, but it's possible.  Law and Order shows people that nothing is impossible; even parents killing their own children.  We have a case of that right now being documented on TV of a father who cooked his baby in a hot enclosed car while he went to work.

That brings up the possibility still, that the parents are relatives of this Muslim boy are guilty of the crime because there have been several honor killings happening among the Muslim community of Israel, as it happens also in the USA.  The family is suspect, and the boy was possibly a homosexual boy.

I heard on CNN that Obama was complaining about the Muslim's death and that he was also an American! .  He wanted the killer or killers to be found ASAP.  Did he make that much noise when our 16 yr old American Jewish boy and his 2 Jewish classmates, also a 16 yr old and a 19 yr old, were kidnapped and killed?  The mothers of the 3 even went to plead at the United Nations and they received a cold shoulder and disbelief.  They weren't even taken seriously.  But oh my!  The Muslim death is really important!  All children killed out of any reason should be taken seriously.  It certainly is on Law and Order.  It is in Israel, that I know.  Is this how the Palestinians plan on making their state Judenrein, which they have warned?  "Our state will be Judenrein, Not one Jew shall live here!" Yada yada yada yada!!!" And that's essentially what Obama, Kerry and the EU agreed to when they nodded their heads.

It is said that there are no coincidences in life, yet here we have an American-Israeli 16 year old and an American-Palestinian 15 year old both killed and for why?  Both seem to have been killed in an act of revenge.  With the Jewish boy, that killing's revenge seems to be just the fact that Jews are living in their ancient homeland of Judea and Samaria.  What else?  The Palestinians were just recognized by Obama and the EU.  Out in Gaza the rockets were shooting right into southern Israel.  If anyone has a beef, it's the Israelis.

Abu Akr al Baghdadi was just seen on Fox News TV in Mosul giving a speech in a Mosque and calling for Jihad. (not confirmed as yet that it was indeed him-but if you ask me, he looked just like the photograph of him.) this is the month of Ramadan and everyone there listening must also have had a twinge of hunger.  They haven't been afraid of showing very graphic and bloody videos of their actions.  Yet I see it's hard for people in the Middle East to believe the Western reporting about him.

Recent Attacks On Israel

Nadene Goldfoot                                            

Three teen-aged Jewish boys, Eyal Yifra 19, Gilad Shaar 16, and Naftali Fraenkel 16,  were kidnapped, bound and shot dead by Hamas.  Their bodies were found half-buried two weeks after they were kidnapped on Thursday, June 12th after school.  Celebrations have been going on with Hamas over the kidnapping and people have been handing out candies in their joy.  Palestinian TV is full of programs of hatred for Israelis and Hamas encourages the continued attacking should come from Fatah also.  Evidently it did with this horrendous killing.  The night before a barrage of rockets rained down on southern Israel from Hamas and continued into the next morning on June 29th and 30th.  The rockets have been continuing.

At the same time, suddenly a Palestinian teen boy, Mohammed Abu Khdeir of east Jerusalem,  was found dead and of course the Israelis were blamed for this.  His body was found burned and hard to identify.   The line was that it was done in retaliation and riots have been going on in a frenzy against Israelis in Jerusalem.  More likely, the boy was killed by his own family in another of the honor killings in the Palestinian culture because rumor has it that he was a homosexual.  His pictures showed a  very thin-looking boy.  I note that the Palestinians' rioting is accompanied with the exact description in their news of a "celebration by the Israelis over this."  Hamas has congratulated the kidnapping.  Is it not a wonder then that they were the instigators if not the culprits?   I have seen nothing in the Israeli news of this, only the sorrow felt before with all of Israel praying in large groups for their safe return, the family's sorrow and the resolve to remain committed to Israel.  Every time something happens, the Palestinian news always copies for themselves what they have caused in the Israelis.  They try to turn the tide and make-believe that they are the victims instead of the aggressors.  It's been in Judaism since the Exodus of Moses and the Israelites that we are not to be happy when the enemy dies, as they are also children of G-d.  I cannot picture any of our IDF cheering over the death of this boy.  Immediately they would know the complication that would be caused from such an event, too.  No, this is all hear-say to instigate the Palestinians to riot.  
In March  2014 between the 12th and 14th, 60 rockets fell. This was before, during and after Purim.   
Today, June 27, 2014:  A total of 6 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip, with the remaining 4 landing in open territory.

A third rocket exploded in the area Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. No injuries were reported The fourth rocket caused a fire near a packaging factory in Eshkol. Though it looked like the fire were turned off, it has spread. Firefighting planes and additional squads try to stop the flames. So far no injuries are reported.   In the evening a salvo of mortar shells was launched at the Eshkol Regional Council area. No red alert in advance, but Explosions were heard. Security forces are inspecting the area. No reports of injuries or damages

July 3
1 hour past midnight the colour red siren is heard in Sderot and Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Council.   One rocket exploded in Sderot. None was hurt, but structures got damaged.  "Terrorists in Gaza continue their relentless rocket fire upon Israel on Thursday as a Kassam rocket struck a building in Sderot Thursday morning that is being used as a summer day camp for children. The rocket thankfully did not explode as children were set to arrive minutes before the impact."
Fatah is following Hamas' lead with TV programs calling for the destruction of Israel.  Abbas is saying, Fatah heats up confrontational atmosphere:"Blood demands blood"Jerusalem, declare a revolution!"
Don't expect Abbas will try to cut ties with Hamas now, which is what Netanyahu has asked him to do.  They had united and they seem to be united with Gorilla glue.  

6/3/14 Another rocket fell on a home and one fell next to a pre-school in Israel
