Steve Apfel—Moses in human rights garb:

A people liberated from slavery. No wonder the Jewish Passover is a time when aficionados of human rights feel drawn to play a modern day Moses. ‘Let my people go!’

Passover, many think, comes around for a melodramatic appeal to the conscience of Israel. Have pity; remember how the Jews were enslaved in Egypt, how they cried out in torment. Hear the cry of people in bondage under you, oh Israel. Let the Palestinians go; let them make unto themselves a nation.

Thus entreats a devotee of Human Rights, one of many thousands that make a good living from devotion. Listen to him carefully. In what he says and in what he believes lie the fatal flaws of the type: Moses in human rights garb. Uri Zaki, once the director for America of an Israeli human rights scheme called B’Tselem (In the image of), made an impassioned Passover appeal. Let the Palestinian people go! What he actually said was:

“Israeli settlements in the West Bank make it practically impossible for the Palestinians to realize their right to self-determination in an independent and viable state of their own.”

13--Perspectives 2

#####

Soeren Kern: UK: Probe of Islamic Takeover Plot Widens—The problem of Islam in public schools has been allowed to snowball to vast proportions… not hundreds but thousands of British schools have come under the influence of Muslim radicals. Bains was also instructed to stop teaching citizenship classes because they were deemed to be “un-Islamic,” and to introduce Islamic studies into the curriculum, even though Saltley is a non-faith school. Schools should not be allowed to become “silos of segregation.” — Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister.

Dan Margalit: The Ukrainian exodus, let it be so— Where is the right balance between Israel’s conflicting interests as they pertain to the events in Ukraine? It has no claim or stake in the future of Crimea, which has been essentially annexed unilaterally by Russia. It also has no vested interests in the actions of the separatists, who are acting on Russia’s behalf to tear the eastern part of the country from the capital Kiev. Is it a hostile takeover? Is it a domestic uprising? As it was said long ago, “It’s their problem.”

Ze’ev Jabotinsky: Time to draw new lines— In 1928 my grandfather, my namesake, wrote in an article that the “character of a person is not black and is not white; it is the result of the relation between appetite and ability. Man has appetites and he seeks to fill them by turning to the path of least resistance. If the resistance is too great, the person says to himself that the benefit is not worth the cost and he forgoes his desires. But because he sees a lack of resistance, he says to himself: ‘Here I can…’ The most poisonous venom capable of infecting the virtue of man is the phrase ‘here I can.’ Any place where this term is valid, virtue is noneffective.”

Elliott Abrams: A reminder about Hamas— Every once in a while we get a useful reminder why there is no peace between Israelis and Palestinians — and the answer isn’t that Israel has put up 100 or 1,000 housing units. This week, Palestinian terrorists attacked an Israeli family on their way to a Passover Seder in the West Bank. The terrorists murdered the father of the family and left the wife and a 9-year-old child wounded.

Abdulrahman al-Rashed: Don’t Celebrate Assad’s Victory Too Soon—If Iran hadn’t taken a strategic decision to save Bashar al-Assad’s regime, he would not have even lasted until 2013. If Iran hadn’t employed its regional militias, such as Hizbullah, Assad would not still be in his palace. But has the Assad regime really won? The facts on the ground are greater than the temporary results of recent battles. Assad’s forces and his allies’ militias only control one-third of Syria today, and they don’t even fully control this one-third. It’s a dangerous war of attrition that all the participants cannot tolerate, except for al-Qaeda groups which arrived in the country on a one-way ticket as they are willing to fight to the death. The relationship between the regime and the people has been broken. The Syrian army has shrunk as a result of defections and losses. Assad and his security forces represent a small sectarian minority controlling a country where a big majority – 70% – are Sunnis. The war on the regime will continue until the regime falls.

Alan Baker: Palestinian Deception and the Unwarranted Trust of the West: The Case of Palestinian Accession to International Conventions— On 1 April 2014, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas signed letters requesting that “the State of Palestine” be granted accession to 15 international conventions and treaties. This action by the Palestinian leadership, and the consequent, hurried acceptance of the Palestinian applications by the UN and by the Swiss government, raise serious questions both regarding the flawed perception as to the very existence and legal status of a sovereign state of “Palestine,” as well as to the potential implications of what are serious violations of the Oslo Accords and of the very integrity of the international law of treaties. If the UN and the governments of Switzerland and the Netherlands acted in accordance with their legal and moral duties pursuant to international treaty law and practice, they would have determined that the requests by the Palestinian leadership for accession to the conventions fail to meet the requirements of international law.

Mark Dubowitz: Iran Seeks to Retain Nuclear Breakout Capacity—American officials are now brimming with optimism about the possibility of a final nuclear deal before the summer, based on a complicated technical compromise that will likely permit Iran to retain essential elements of its military-nuclear infrastructure. Washington has gone from “disclose and dismantle” – insisting that Iran come clean on its military-nuclear activities, coupled with demands to dismantle its military-nuclear infrastructure – to “defer and deter.”

Dror Eydar: Understanding Iran— Iranian-born David Menashri, a professor of Middle Eastern studies, is one of the most prominent experts on Iran in Israel. Speaking of the interim agreement with Iran, he said: “The U.S. did not understand that by the laws of the Persian bazaar it could have gotten much more, because Iran needed the U.S. more than the U.S. wanted Iran. And the U.S. did not collect the proper price.” “Iran is in trouble…. Iran has two million [university] students. Who is going to hire them? They know how people in the world live.”

Jeff Jacoby: Islam & Silencing the Progressives— “Honor Diaries” might not be coming to a theater near you, at least not if CAIR gets its way. The award-winning documentary about “honor” violence against girls and women in much of the Muslim world was released last month in honor of International Women’s Day, and it didn’t take long for the Council on American Islamic Relations to slap its all-purpose “Islamophobic!” label on it. The film has been shown in dozens of venues, but CAIR has raised enough of a stink to get screenings cancelled on several college campuses, including the University of Michigan and the University of Illinois.

Raymond Ibrahim: The Ultimate Source of Islamic Hate for Infidels— Who is ultimately responsible for the ongoing attacks on Christians and their churches throughout the Islamic world? Focusing on one of the most obvious nations where Christians are regularly targeted—Egypt’s Coptic Christians—one finds that the “mob” is the most visible and obvious culprit.  One Copt accused of some transgression against Muslim sensibilities—from having relations with a Muslim woman, to ruining a Muslim man’s shirt—is often enough to prompt Muslim mobs to destroy entire Christian villages and their churches.

4--Scripture of the Day Yahweh

Genesis 2: 4-9

4 This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that Yahweh Elohim made earth and heaven. 5 Now no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for Yahweh Elohim had not sent rain upon the earth, and there was no man to cultivate the ground. 6 But a mist used to rise from the earth and water the whole surface of the ground. 7 Then Yahweh Elohim formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. 8 Yahweh Elohim planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. 9 Out of the ground Yahweh Elohim caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

14--Blessings from Revelation 2

Blessings in the Book of Revelation is a book that you need to read, especially now.  There are blessings throughout the Scriptures but Revelation is the only book in the Bible actually containing a specific blessing for reading it. It’s repeated twice, once at the beginning and again at the end. This is the reason that I believe Revelation should be the first step toward studying biblical prophecy. Though not easy to do, Revelation can be broken down and understood by anyone, not just the academic elite. So, Revelation’s blessings are for everyone.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.

  • Falsely Accused is a true story about a young woman who was accused of committing a double homicide.  It’s about a travesty of justice, and it reveals Yahweh intervening in the life of a believer to rescue her from danger in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.  Everyone will enjoy the book, but young people in particular need to read it because the mistakes made that led to the problem could have been avoided.  They were the kinds of mistakes that young people are prone to make.  As they say, forewarned is forearmed.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.
