More preposterous Israeli propaganda that no one gives any credence to. You'd think the Jewish state would relax a little and not try so hard to convince the world that their country is full of actual Biblical sites and that this gives them divine right to the territory. I mean then they'd have even more time and resources to oppress and cheat the Palestinians and destabilize the entire middle east which appear to be their favorite pastimes. Besides, there are the old proverbs, "No pig bones doth not a nation make" and "cultic is as cultic does". But what can you do -- the Israel lobby has a pretty tight grip on the US government so we just have to grin and bear it.

The great exciting archeological King Solomon era discoveries near Ha'Ela Valley where David killed Goliet 3300 years ago proved the biblical historical evidence of the kingdom of David and the Kingdom of Solomon who built the first Jewish Temple on Mount Temple in Jerusalem. The rich Jewish culture that was discovered with Artifacts, coins prove that the Jewish people lives in hi Biblical country between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River 3300 years ago when there was not even one PLO Mozlem Brother terrorist ancestor. The Israel hating liberal media under Obama led by the NY Times and the Ha'Aretz are disappointed with the proof of the biblical history facts about Jewish people history that liberal socialistic and Mozlem Brother sympathizers Jews of America under the Obama regime deny. According to the Obama and the liberal jewish Elites of the Democratic Party's re-written history of the Jewish people the Jewish history start in the death camps of the Nazis in Europe during WWII and therefore Jews have no right to build houses in their biblical capital Jerusalem where the Jewish Kingdom of King Solomon ruled under 'The Ten Commandments' that still are basis of Christianity, the American constitution and the Israeli laws. Clearly, the Ten Commandments that were pillars of the Kingdom of David and Solomon laws are rejected by the Jihadist Mozlem Brothers of the PLO and Hamas terrorists that Obama and the liberal Jews of America support as their reactionary Shariya laws of the 7th century allows deceiving and killing of Jews and Christians for reward an Mozlem Heroes.

Are you crazy or what? In 1944, Jews paid between $1000 and $1100 per acre mostly for arid or semi-arid land; in the same year, rich black soil in Iowa was selling for about $110 per acre (U.S. Dept. of Agriculture)"

--Land Ownership in Palestine, 1880-1948

Palestinians paid NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH!!!! SO HOW IN THE HELL CAN LAND BE STOLEN FROM THEM???

----------
According to British government statistics, prior to the establishment of the State of Israel, 8.6% of the land area now known as Israel was owned by Jews; 3.3% by Arabs who remained there; 16.5% by Arabs who left the country. More than 70% of the land was owned by the BRITISH GOVERNMENT!!! Under international law, ownership passed to Israel in 1948. The public lands included most of the Negev Desert --Survey of 1946, British Mandate Government

The preceding declarations by Arab politicians have been done before 1967, as they had not the slightest knowledge of the existence of any Palestinian people. How and when did they change their mind and decided that such people existed? When the State of Israel was reborn in 1948 c.e., the "Palestinians" did not exist yet, the Arabs had still not discovered that "ancient" people. They were too busy with the purpose of annihilating the new Sovereign State and did not intend to create any Palestinian entity, but only to distribute the land among the already existing Arab states. They were defeated. They attempted again to destroy Israel in 1967, and were humiliated in only six days, in which they lost the lands that they had usurped in 1948. In those 19 years of Arab occupation of Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip, neither Jordan nor Egypt suggested to create a "Palestinian" state, since the still non-existing Palestinians would have never claimed their alleged right to have their own state... Paradoxically, during the British Mandate, it was not any Arab group but the Jews that were known as "Palestinians"!
What other Arabs declared after the Six-Day War:
"There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity... yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel".
- Zuhair Muhsin, military commander of the PLO and member of the PLO Executive Council -

"You do not represent Palestine as much as we do. Never forget this one point: There is no such thing as a Palestinian people, there is no Palestinian entity, there is only Syria. You are an integral part of the Syrian people, Palestine is an integral part of Syria. Therefore it is we, the Syrian authorities, who are the true representatives of the Palestinian people".
- Syrian dictator Hafez Assad to the PLO leader Yassir Arafat -

"As I lived in Palestine, everyone I knew could trace their heritage back to the original country their great grandparents came from. Everyone knew their origin was not from the Canaanites, but ironically, this is the kind of stuff our education in the Middle East included. The fact is that today's Palestinians are immigrants from the surrounding nations! I grew up well knowing the history and origins of today's Palestinians as being from Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Christians from Greece, muslim Sherkas from Russia, muslims from Bosnia, and the Jordanians next door. My grandfather, who was a dignitary in Bethlehem, almost lost his life by Abdul Qader Al-Husseni (the leader of the Palestinian revolution) after being accused of selling land to Jews. He used to tell us that his village Beit Sahur (The Shepherds Fields) in Bethlehem County was empty before his father settled in the area with six other families. The town has now grown to 30,000 inhabitants".

Amazing!! The truth finally comes out!! Hamas Minister of the Interior and of National Security Fathi Hammad Slams Egypt over Fuel Shortage in Gaza Strip, and Says:'Half of the Palestinians Are Egyptians and the Other Half Are Saudis,'" from MEMRI, March 23 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Following are excerpts from an address by Hamas Minister of the Interior and of National Security Fathi Hammad, aired by Al-Hekma TV on March 23, 2012.
Thus, the conspiracy is very clear. Al-Aqsa and the land of Palestine represent the spearhead for Islam and for the Muslims. Therefore, when we seek the help of our Arab brothers, we are not seeking their help in order to eat, to live, to drink, to dress, or to live a life of luxury. No. When we seek their help, it is in order to continue to wage Jihad. Allah be praised, we all have Arab roots, and every Palestinian, in Gaza and throughout Palestine, can prove his Arab roots - whether from Saudi Arabia, from Yemen, or anywhere. We have blood ties.

The Arabs have muddied the world for decades with their furious protest that their land has been “stolen” from them. One might take seriously such a statement if it came from a pacifist people such as the Tibetans, who had quietly inhabited their land for ages before it was seized by the Communist Chinese in 1950. The claim is laughable coming from the Arabs, who in the early Middle Ages conquered and reduced to slavery and penury ancient peoples and civilizations stretching from the borders of Persia to the Atlantic; who in 1947 rejected an Arab state in Palestine alongside a Jewish state and sought to obliterate the nascent Jewish state; who never called for a distinct Palestinian Arab state until the creation of the terrorist PLO in 1964—sixteen years after the founding of the state of Israel; and who to this moment continue to seek Israel’s destruction, an object that would be enormously advanced by the creation of the Arab state they demand. The Arab claim to sovereign rights west of the Jordan is only humored today because of a fatal combination of world need for Arab oil, leftist Political Correctness that has cast the Israelis as “oppressors,” and, of course, good old Jew-hatred.

The dig site is 20 miles southwest of the site where the Jerusalem temple was supposed to be located and no Israelite artifacts have turned up at this site.

"Not all archaeologists agree with Garfinkel’s assessment, however.

“These are beautiful finds, but they are not special in that similar ones have been found in various places, and they should therefore not be connected in any way to the ark” or other biblical references, Tel Aviv University archaeologist Nadav Na’aman told the newspaper Haaretz.

Na’aman doubted, too, whether the lack of pig bones suggests that the inhabitants of the settlement were part of King David’s kingdom.

“The Canaanites also did not eat pork,” Na’aman said."

Neither did the Egyptians. The script found on pottery shards at the site is written left to right and seems to be in a non-semitic proto-Canaanite language, definitely not Hebrew or Aramaic.

Garfunkel must be desperate to risk his credibility with false claims like this.

Ancient wall found in Jerusalem

Archaeologists say the wall formed part of the region's first fortifications
A 3,700-year-old wall has been discovered in east Jerusalem, Israeli archaeologists say.

The structure was built to protect the city's water supply as part of what dig director Ronny Reich described as the region's earliest fortifications.
The 26-ft (8-m) high wall showed the Canaanite people who built it were a sophisticated civilisation, he said.

The wall dates from a time in the Middle Bronze Age when Jerusalem was a small, fortified enclave controlled by the Canaanites. Its discovery demonstrated Jerusalem's Canaanite inhabitants were sophisticated enough to undertake major building projects, said Mr Reich.

"The wall is enormous, and that it survived 3,700 years - this is, even for us, a long time," said Mr Reich, an archaeology professor at the University of Haifa.

This is true. Before 1948, Israel was mostly British territory. The Brits gave it to us Jews. So why doesn't anyone blame Britain for anything?

If Britain and the UN thought it was OK then it was OK.

El Sicko is at it again!! The Ed The Zit filthy scumbag USA's PROBLEM Baby Boy HIDING OUT IN LA is BEST known by the language the JEW HATING moron uses THOUGHOUT TOPIX:
Depraved sexual insults, bile, bigotry, threats, disinformation and character assassination. That’s right: I’m talking about “Anti-Jewish, anti=Israel, Hamas Sock puppet trolls" who infect the Internet with Pro-Hitler, Pro-Nazi, Pro-Hamas, Anti-Jewish and anti-Israel propaganda.
The Internet, though, is the latest, some might say the greatest, propaganda playground, and Hamas cannot cope with factual, passionate, well-documented stories that expose its war crimes and unrepentant criminality.
If you’ve come across Hamas Sock Puppets like these morons, on-line or otherwise, you have learned that no amount of reasoned argument or intellectual maturity has any effect.
That’s because the Hamas PAID PROPAGANDISTS don't care if they come across as ignorant, obnoxious, nasty or inane.

The Torah is an Arab account about a family, a family of Arabs composed of Ammointes, Amorites, Canaanites, Havites, Hittites, Chaldeans/Iraqis, Syrians, Philistines, Jebusites Moabites, Midianites, Egyptians. Every Israelite mentioned in the Bible was an Arab.

The lying, thieving, murdering Aryan/Anglo Saxons whose ancestors in Europe and Central Asia CONVERTED to judaism are NOT Arabs, NOT the descendants of Abraham, and Palestine was NEVER their homeland.

Hey, Ezfuckface ... now you did it ...

Hellen was nothing but the echo of judeophobe Arab Muslims practicing what they accuse us of .... "cleansing"..

Let me now play a card after yours ... and you'll tell us how does it ring when the ball hits your window ...

Muslims, Arabs ... get out of Europe. You are responsible of the high unemployment rate among natural Europeans.

And also get out of the USA and Canada ... you are not loyal enough to be Northamerican citizens of both countries ...

Another turn to the bolt ...

The Jewish People in Israel 'reached the point of no return' on the second half on the 19th Century .... way back then ..... when the Jews started returning to the desolated land of their ancestors.

They worked hard and turned the fckkn dump that your brethren neglected since the invention of Islam (1200 years ?)... into a miracle.

Your lot added NOTHING to this land. All you did was bring misery to the Palestinian People ...

We have the determination to live and progress in peace in our land... the land where we were driven out from by force and dispersed all over the Roman Empire 2000 years ago ...

120 years of successful struggle with the dessert and the Muslims assassins roaming around, has nothing but reinforced our determination.

The wars the Arab contries waged on us and the terrorist’s attacks of all the combined factions of your brethren have not moved us one inch back. We have more people killed in traffic accidents every year, than on terrorist attacks.

Our intimate conflict with neighboring states and with Palestinians can be resolved only through direct negotiations between our elected leaderships.

We have signed peace with two great nations. Egypt and Jordan.

Your attempts to resolve our differences through wars and terror are fruitless …. and warantied, they will only bring more misery to your own people.

Kapisch, Ezdumbass..??
