#OurUSAandWorld : Israel & Zionism : The term “Zionism”

was coined in 1890 by Nathan Birnbaum.

Its general definition means the national movement for the

return of the Jewish people to their homeland and the

resumption of Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel. The

UN has singled out Jewish self-determination for

condemnation This is a form of racism. “A world that closed

its doors to Jews who sought escape from Hitler’s ovens

lacks the moral standing to complain about Israel’s giving

preference to Jews,” wrote noted

civil rights lawyer Alan Dershowitz.
Defend Israel

When approached by a student who attacked Zionism,

Martin Luther King responded: “When people criticize

Zionists, they mean Jews.

You’re talking anti-Semitism.”

Who is Anti-Christian??: 

#Today : Is the earth inhabitable?? Not in the West Bank

and Gaza Strip : Of the 8.08 million people living in Israel as

of September 2013, Christians constituted approximately

320,000 people, around 3.5 to 4% of the population. While

Christians have fled from Palestinian controlled areas in the

West Bank and Gaza Strip because of violence and

persecution, the Christian population in Israel has

increased over the past few decades.

God is Spirit and there is only ONE Spirit in the entire

Cosmos : So what evil God have the Palestinians

invented???? The ONE Spirit of the Cosmos is The God of

Abraham, Moses,KingDavid and Jesus our Lord whom God

will send to kill the enemies of Israel : 

Senior Palestinian Official: “Allah Will Gather (The Israelis) So We Can Kill Them”:  Senior Palestinian official Abbas Zaki said in an interview broadcast yesterday on official PA TV that Israelis “have no belief, no principles” and that they “are an advanced instrument of evil.” Therefore, “Allah will gather them so that we can kill them,” he explained:

“These Israelis have no belief, no principles. They are an

advanced instrument of evil. They say, the Holocaust, and so

on – fine, why are they doing this to us? Therefore, I believe

that Allah, will gather them so we can kill them.

#OurUSAandWorld : Just as the ONE True God of Israel

gave David victory and he established Jerusalem as the

capital of Israel so shall the ONE True God and Jesus give

Israel victory in our day and time : The Star of David was

regarded by King David as a sign of the Messiah in the

heavens

David referred to this Star as sign of the Messiah

Israel Watches Warily as Hezbollah Gains Battle Skills in

Syria: 

TEL AVIV — Hezbollah’s distracting and costly engagement

in the Syrian civil war has offered some practical benefit to

Israelis. It has also been a source of foreboding.

On the one hand, Hezbollah, the militant Lebanese Shiite

organization that fought a monthlong war against Israel in

2006, is preoccupied with shoring up the government of

President Bashar al-Assad of Syria in its struggle against

rebel forces, and is suffering losses.

But Hezbollah is also acquiring battlefield experience, and

the only way for Mr. Assad, a longtime Hezbollah ally, to

repay the group is by supplying it with sophisticated

weapons, according to Israeli military officials and experts

— strengths that could eventually be used against Israel.

“Hezbollah has 4,000 to 5,000 soldiers today in Syria,” a

senior Israeli military officer told reporters at army

headquarters here last week. “This is a major burden for

Hezbollah but also a major advantage.” Speaking on the

condition of anonymity in accordance with Israeli Army

rules, he added, “I have no doubt that Hezbollah gained

much more self-confidence because of the Syrian

experience.”

Hezbollah fired thousands of rockets at Israel during the

2006 war, which began after Hezbollah captured two Israeli

soldiers on the Israel-Lebanon border. More than 1,000

Lebanese and dozens of Israelis were killed in the fighting,

which ended with a United Nations-brokered cease-fire. The

war was deemed a failure by many Israelis, though experts

say it restored a degree of deterrence.

Since then, Israel’s border with Lebanon has been mostly

quiet. But Israel is preparing intensively for another

possible round of fighting with Hezbollah, which military

planners here see as inevitable. In their view, the experience

gained by Hezbollah’s commanders and fighters in Syria is

likely to make that next round more challenging for Israel.

“This kind of experience cannot be bought,” said Gabi

Siboni, director of the military and strategic affairs program

at the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv

University.

Mr. Siboni and other analysts said that Hezbollah’s

experience in Syria should not be overstated since the group

is fighting rebel forces like the Free Syrian Army and

jihadist groups, not a modern, regular army. Still, Mr.

Siboni said: “It is an additional factor that we will have to

deal with. There is no replacement for experience, and it is

not to be scoffed at.”

While the Israeli military used to plan for conventional

armored battle — tanks against tanks — now its forces train

to withstand fighters who have antitank missiles and secret

underground hide-outs.

Over the last two years, according to military officials, much

Israeli Army training has moved from the southern desert to

the Galilee region in the north, where the terrain is similar

to that of Lebanon and Syria.

At the same time, the Israeli military is conducting a mostly

covert campaign to maintain a qualitative edge over

Hezbollah and curb the buildup of the group’s weaponry.

Israel has refused to confirm or deny involvement in about

half a dozen airstrikes over the past year, mostly in Syrian

territory. But Israel’s leaders have said they will act to

prevent transfers of sophisticated weapons to Hezbollah

from Syria, such as accurate, long-range rockets and shore-

to-ship or ground-to-air missiles. Israel is also concerned

about Hezbollah’s acquisition of unmanned aerial vehicles,

more commonly known as drones or U.A.V.’s.

“A Hezbollah with modern surface-to-air systems, with

modern U.A.V.’s, with modern cybercapabilities, well, this is

a different Hezbollah,” the senior military official said, one

that could have “much more appetite to taste another

conflict with Israel.”

In a departure from its usual practice of remaining silent

about the Israeli airstrikes, Hezbollah openly accused Israel

of striking one of its positions on the Lebanon-Syria border

on the night of Feb. 24, and it threatened to retaliate at a

time and place of its choosing.

Days later, in another unusual development, Israeli forces

in the Golan Heights fired artillery shells at a small squad of

men across the Israel-Syria frontier who were said to have

been trying to plant an explosive device. The Israeli military

described the men as “Hezbollah-affiliated terrorists.” The

official Syrian news agency, SANA, said the Israeli fire

wounded seven Syrian security personnel and four civilians.

If the men were indeed affiliated with Hezbollah, the

episode could indicate that the group has started operating

against Israel in a new arena, along the decades-old

cease-fire line between Israel and Syria.

Still, many Israeli analysts believe that for Hezbollah, the

disadvantages of its engagement in Syria outweigh the

advantages, and that there is an upside for Israel.

Fighting to help preserve the Assad government in Syria is

“almost existential” for Hezbollah, said Ely Karmon of the

International Institute for Counterterrorism at the

Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel. Under the Assad

family’s rule, all of Hezbollah’s Iranian-supplied weapons

passed through Damascus, Syria’s capital. And the group,

Mr. Karmon said, has “always needed the strategic umbrella

of Syria.”

Hezbollah has been amassing weaponry since 2006, years

before the civil war in Syria began. But Mr. Karmon said

that Hezbollah’s advanced weapons, supplied by Iran, were

intended mainly for use against Israel in the event of an

Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear program.

Under cover of the chaos in Syria, Israel has been freer to

take action against the weapons buildup without fear of

retaliation, the assumption being that Hezbollah, embroiled

in Syria, is not in a position now to open another broad

front against Israel.

In addition, analysts here say, the Lebanese group’s image

at home and in the broader Arab world has been severely

damaged because it is fighting Sunni rebels in Syria while its

legitimacy rested on its role in fighting Israel.

Hezbollah’s reputation is suffering further, according to

Shaul Shay, a former deputy head of Israel’s National

Security Council, because of the increasing spillover from

the Syrian conflict onto Lebanese soil in the form of a wave

of deadly bomb attacks.

Syria is Hezbollah’s “Vietnam, Afghanistan or Iraq,” said

Yoram Schweitzer, an expert at the Institute for National

Security Studies. Though Hezbollah is acquiring battle

experience, Mr. Schweitzer said, “in my view, the price it is

paying is greater than the gain.”
