Awesome videos thank you. I've uploaded them to share in my chat room. Very educational. Thank you very much. Rightscoop is the BEST!
The Jordan River is the only river in the world with only one bank. Is there a lost bank somewhere in the world?
No one explains, the WEST bank is on the EAST side of Israel the reason its call West bank is because Jordan called it that way not Israel
Regarding those refugee camps:
at the end of WWII, hundreds of thousands of Germans fled from the Eastern parts of Germany, from the Russians and later the communists. They arrived in the newly formed Federal German Republic, which was bombed out, had hardly sufficient living space for the original inhabitants, and which could not feed itself.*)
Within a few years, these hundreds of thousands of refugees had found work, and made a living and a new start. While they hankered after their old homes, they knew they'd never be able to go back.
They didn't sit on their hands, they didn't fester in camps, they didn't live on hand-outs for decades.
So why are arabs, with huge amounts of money from the UN, the USA, the EU and their arab brethren incapable of building up their lives?
(Rhetorical question ...!)
*) it is a little known fact that we sent the Germans food stuff and other things, while we in the UK still had food, clothes, you name it, rationed.
Another irksome fact is that it was us, the British, who licensed a certain car manufactury to start building cars again ... that car manufactury was VW ...
Please read Lapierre and Collins' "O! Jerusalem". It is a riveting (historical, but not written by boring academicians) account of the final few months before Israel gained it's own state.
One of the main themes (without being too much of a spoiler) is that till the last few days, it could have easily gone to the Arabs. But most of the Arab sheikhs, etc., sold the Palestinian by withdrawing military support. Why? Perhaps, because they could use the Palestinian's rage as cannon fodder to undermine Israel in perpetuity.
I love these videos! I think I watched the first one or something like that, not too long ago. Very stylish. Even the IDF videos. You should have seen the trolling that happened when they got that Hamas high official the other day. Cyberwarfare isn't too shabby.
My question is this: How and why did American news media become the propaganda machine for Hamas? Also, how and why did Israel's status as a nation become a conservative vs. liberal issue when Israel is clearly progressive and Muslims, who are embraced by liberals and the liberal media, clearly hate women and gays?
Call me confused.
"The enemy of my enemy is my friend."
"The phrase the enemy of my enemy is my friend is a proverb that advances the concept that because two parties have a common enemy, they can work with each other to advance their common goals. Often described as an Arabic proverb, there is also an identical Chinese proverb.
In foreign policy, it's a doctrine commonly used to interact with a significant enemy through an intermediary rather than through direct confrontation.
Examples throughout history are common, such as longtime enemies Britain and France uniting against Germany during World War I, the Western capitalist democracies aiding the Soviet Union following the Nazi invasion during World War II, or U.S. support for anti-Communist dictatorships during the Cold War."
Actually the first video can go further.
In 132 AD Simon bar Kokhba lead a major Jewish revolt against the Roman Empire in the Roman Provence of Judea. They wanted an independent state.
In 136 AD, the Romans crushed the Jewish resistance and Emperor Hadrian decided to rename the Province of Judea into the Syria Palaestina Province.
Since then the area was had been known as Palestine until the end of the Ottoman Empire in 1917.
We don't thrive on military acts. We do them because we have to, and thank God we are efficient.
Great videos RS. Thanks for posting them. I am always amazed when the Palestinians lob missiles into Israel then protest when Israel fights back.
What do you think the chances are of Obama stopping by Israel on his way home?
I hope he stays away. It's too bad that they had to put this off for so long. I hope they take care of business and don't listen to a thing Obama has to say. He is pretty stupid anyway and anything he would have to say would be a downer no matter how you cut it. There is a certain freedom only being on your own allows. Do what is best for Israel, not the US. (although that is probably the same thing) Obama doesn't care about us or Israel. Obama's agenda is not one of good faith.
Thank you Scoop for putting these up again. I'm saving these for my next homeschool co op.
For something interesting if you haven't seen them before. More Photos which tie the "grand mufti" of Jerusalem, Amin Al Husseini and the Nazis. Keep in mind Amin Al Husseini was considered an Uncle to Yasser Arafat... and also considered to be the "father" of islamic jihadist groups. http://www.tellthechildrenthetruth.com/gallery/index.html
