Forward this to Obama!

Today I have added a new scene to Rebirth (while in the final editing stages) showing how the Jews had tirelessly initiated numerous peace meetings with the Arabs in Palestine and abroad since the 1940s, only to be frustrated to see Arabs not show up much of the time. Rebirth will clearly show that negotiations with terrorist minded foes of Israel will NEVER work! Will somebody please forward this to Obama?

There is a lot of diplomatic activity at the moment to persuade Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas not to seek statehood in the autumn. It's likely that more than two-thirds of the UN General Assembly will recognize a Palestinian state if it goes to a vote. But a state cannot get actual membership of the UN unless it is approved by the Security Council, and the Americans will veto. 

Diplomats say the key voters are Germany, France and the UK. Germany has said no to recognition; France is "on the fence but trending positively" and the UK is undecided.

President Obama's apparently personal decision, in his May speech referenced a bogus solution based on a land giveaway from the Pre-1967 borders. This infuriated the Israelis and rightly so since it would have opened up a giant security hole in Israel. "We felt like it was an ambush," an Israeli cabinet minister said. "What seems clear at the moment is that America's most important ally in the Middle East doesn't have a voice in the inner circle. Another reason to NOT see Obama reelected.

The gaps are so wide - not just between us and the president, said the Isrealis, but between Obama and his staff."

As if more proof was needed?

Rebirth is filled with rich evidence of the Jewish presence in the land of Israel for thousands of years and yet, so many foolish groups try to denounce the facts. Be informed. Read about some amazing proof of Israel's past, in our archived section at the bottom of this page: June 2010, the Dead Sea Scrolls. It's fascinating and considered to be the most important archeological find in history.

One of the consistent themes sounded by Palestinian political leaders and their official media is their contention that Jewish roots in Jerusalem and throughout the historic Land of Israel is a myth. It is in this light the unveiling of a new site showcasing the most complete excavations from the First Temple Period in Jerusalem ought to be celebrated. These findings are a standing rebuke to those who refer to parts of Israel's capital as "traditionally Palestinian." All you need to confirm Jerusalem's Jewish roots is to start digging.

Robert Kennedy and Israel - Striking News!

On the 40th Anniversary of His Assassination:
Robert Kennedy's 1948 Reports from Palestine helped contribute to his early death
Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, brother of slain U.S. President John F. Kennedy and former U.S. Attorney General, was the leading Democratic candidate for president when he was gunned down at a primary victory celebration in California on June 5, 1968. His Palestinian assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, said he killed Kennedy due to his vocal support for Israel.
In April 1948, one month before Israel declared independence, Robert Kennedy, then 22, traveled to Palestine to report on the conflict for the Boston Post. His four dispatches from the scene were published in June 1948. The newspaper closed in 1956, and for decades the reports were virtually forgotten.

Kennedy arrived in a chaotic and dangerous land on the eve of the British departure. Jewish Jerusalem  was under Arab siege and Arab armies were pouring into the territory. The British authorities were hampering Jews' efforts to defend themselves.
Kennedy praised the Jews in Palestine. "The Jewish people in Palestine who believe in and have been working toward this national state have become an immensely proud and determined people," Kennedy wrote. "It is already a truly great modern example of the birth of a nation with the primary ingredients of dignity and self-respect."
One of his dispatches was headlined, "Jews Make Up for Lack of Arms with Undying Spirit, Unparalleled Courage." In one of his accounts, Kennedy describes his traveling with Haganah fighters in a convoy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The young reporter was critical of a temporary slippage of the American government's support for Jewish statehood. He feared that the U.S. was shifting towards Britain's negative policies and its aim "to crush" the Zionist cause. "If the American people knew the true facts," Kennedy wrote, "I am certain a more honest and forthright policy would be substituted for the benefit of all."
