Is Jerusalem so much as mentioned in the Koran?
Why should an advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs to the leader of Muslim Arab “Palestinians,” Mahmoud Abbas state: “The new American administration intends to transfer its embassy to Jerusalem…. Such a step, for every Muslim, is a declaration of war on all Muslims.” [See this recent report by Itamar Marcus at https://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=19778]
Hear Director Jeff Daube of the Zionist Organization of America in Israel, respond to this latest threat of holy war from his Jerusalem office on the 01.10.2017 broadcast at http://anewmiddleeast.com/category/radio-show/.
Muslim Arabs, (Palestinians), have taken to the airwaves, officially controlled by the Palestinian Authority, PA/PLO, to threaten a holy war as the Palestinian Liberation Organization, PLO, its subsidiaries, as well as the Islamic State, IS/ISIS/ISIL, the Islamic Resistance Movement, HAMAS, in Gaza, as well as other terror groups, terrorize the Jewish people in their cities and neighborhoods on an almost daily basis.
Western nations must understand that this is just the latest weapon in the propaganda war against Israel by Muslim Arabs to delegitimize and ultimately eliminate the only liberal democracy, non-Islamic state in the Middle East.
From a national security perspective, the United States and Israel can not afford to appear weak, bullied into submission by those who terrorize the innocent for religious and/or political objectives.
Surrounding this topic Director Daube and I discuss the newly reintroduced Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act by U.S. Senators, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Dean Heller this last week.
Hear this discussion and take action.
Please call your members in the House and the Senate to support this bill. It eliminates a President’s waiver authority to disregard nearly the same piece of legislation originally passed by Congress in 1995. That law also called for the relocation of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and to officially recognize Jerusalem as the State of Israel’s national capital.
Sadly, for over two decades U.S. Presidents since Bill Clinton have ignored Congressional law – failing to honor and recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s declared capital and thereby failing to execute justice in the face of Palestinian threats of terror.
After winning a war against Muslim Arab nations that openly supported Hitler’s Final Solution during World War II and which sought the annihilation of the Jewish people in their historic homeland following the war, Israel’s official seat of government has been located in Jerusalem since its re-establishment in 1948.
Indeed, what few people realize is that the Jewish people have maintained a presence in Jerusalem that dates back 4,000 years.
Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people, should be finally acknowledged officially by the U.S. government and remain undivided under the State of Israel’s control.
Support the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act. Call your member of Congress. The Capital Switchboard number is 202.224.3121.
