July 29, 2012 5:18 PM EDT - JERUSALEM (AP) Standing on
Israeli soil, U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday
declared Jerusalem to be the capital of the Jewish state and
said the United States has "a solemn duty and a moral imperative"
to block Iran from achieving nuclear weapons capability.
- "Make no mistake, the ayatollahs in Iran are testing
our moral defenses. They want to know who will object and who
will look the other way," he said. "We will not look
away nor will our country ever look away from our passion and
commitment to Israel."
- The presidential election hovered over the speech. The Old
City formed a made-for-television backdrop behind Romney, while
some of his campaign donors listened in the audience.
- Romney's declaration that Jerusalem is Israel's capital was
matter-of-fact and in keeping with claims made by Israeli governments
for decades, even though the United States, like other nations,
maintains its embassy in Tel Aviv.
- He did not say if he would order the embassy moved if he
wins the White House, but strongly suggested so in a CNN interview.
- "My understanding is the policy of our nation has been
a desire to move our embassy ultimately to the capital (Jerusalem),"
he said, adding, "I would only want to do so and to select
the timing in accordance with the government of Israel."
- His remarks on the subject during his speech drew a standing
ovation from his audience, which included Sheldon Adelson, the
American businessman who has said he will donate millions to
help elect Romney to the White House.
- Romney's embrace of Israel was on display throughout the
day when he met with Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and other
leaders. He also visited the Western Wall, Judaism's holiest
site, where he was mobbed by worshippers. In addition, Romney
met with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.
- In his remarks, Romney steered clear of overt criticism of
President Barack Obama, even though he said the threat of a nuclear-armed
Iran "has only become worse" in the past five years.
- TISHA BAV
- Friday Church News Notes, July 27, 2012 - Since the destruction
of the Second Temple, Jews have observed Tisha BAv (meaning
ninth of Av) as the day of mourning over their loss. The practice
began after the destruction of the First Temple by the Babylonians
and was reestablished in 71 A.D, for the first and second temples
were destroyed on the same day, 655 years apart. The observance
falls in July or August of the Gregorian calendar.
- This year it is on July 28, so the observance is deferred
until Sunday July 29. On Tisha BAv, the Torah is draped
in black. There is fasting and mourning with various rituals
and the reading of the book of Lamentations and Jewish poetry
called kinnot. In some Jewish communities the book of Job is
read. Orthodox Jews believe that Tisha BAv will be kept
until the Messiah comes, at which time it will become a celebration.

what they said was the the committees refusal to accommodate
their demand to draft all Israeli Arab citizens when they turn

a model of universal service that would also include the Arab
community, but it did not go far enough for Yisrael Beiteinu
and Habayit Hayehudi.

JERUSALEM - Israel's foreign minister warned on Wednesday his
country will act immediately if it discovers Islamic militants
are raiding Syria's chemical or biological weapons stocks, while
Israelis rushed to stock up on gas masks as the bellicose rhetoric
- Israeli political and security leaders have been watching
the intensified bloodletting in neighboring Syria with mounting
concern, afraid that Lebanon's Hezbollah and other militant groups
could raid these arsenals should the central government in Damascus
collapse. In recent days, Israeli political leaders have said
they would be prepared to strike weapons depots to prevent this
- Reflecting the fears, Israeli officials reported a run on
gas masks in recent days. Demand has almost doubled in the past
few days, to 4,200 requests on Tuesday from a years-old average
of about 2,200, said Merav Lapidot, a spokeswoman for the Israeli
postal service, which distributes the masks. Foreign Minister
Avigdor Lieberman told Israel Radio that the government would
not tolerate seeing Syria's chemical weapons fall into militant
hands as tensions rise along his country's northern border. "For
us, that's a casus belli, a red line," he said.
- Israel's military chief Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz, however, counseled
restraint on Tuesday, warning that an attack on Syrian chemical
weapons depots could drag Israel into a broader war. Continued:

After Caterpillar Win, Boycott Groups Look to Presbyterians
- CAT Fight: The boycott Israel has won a victory over Caterpillar,
which has provided bulldozers used by the Israeli military. Now
it is pushing a Presbyterian group for a tougher stand.
- By Nathan Guttman - Published July 02, 2012, issue of July
06, 2012. - Washington The high dam mounted against the
movement to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel has sprung
its first significant leak and for opponents of the BDS
movement, as it is known, the timing could not be worse.
- In its general assembly, taking place between June 30 and
July 7, the largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States
will vote on divesting its investment portfolio of companies
deemed to be supporting Israels policies in the occupied
West Bank and Gaza, and in East Jerusalem. Its the final
showdown of a long and drawn-out process in which many Jewish
groups have been involved, adamantly combating the proposed portfolio
- But on June 25, just as BDS opponents were gearing up for
this challenge, MSCI, a financial analysis firm with more than
6,000 clients worldwide, made a startling disclosure in a public
statement: Controversy over the use of Caterpillar Inc.s
bulldozers in Israels occupied territories had been a key
factor in MSCIs March 1 decision to drop the heavy-equipment
manufacturer from its index of socially responsible companies.
- That MSCI move had at least one immediate practical consequence:
In March, TIAA-CREF, the leading retirement assets management
firm for workers in the academic, research, medical and cultural
fields, quietly dropped Caterpillar from its socially responsible
investment portfolios, selling off some $72 million worth of

Community Plans Ceremony To Remember 11 Munich Victims
- Cheers and Tears: Much of Britain is gripped by Olympics
fever. For Londons Jews, the excitement is tempered by
plans for memorials to honor victims of the 1972 Munich Olympics
- By Miriam Shaviv (JTA) - Published July 02, 2012. - For the
British Jewish community, the most memorable moment of the London
Olympics may be a somber one. On Aug. 6, several hundred people
are expected to attend a commemoration for the 11 Israeli athletes
and coaches murdered by Palestinian terrorists during the 1972
Munich Olympics. From conversations across the community,
the key thing people are engaged in around the Olympics is that
they want to see a commemoration of Munich, said Peter
Mason, director of the London Jewish Forum.
- Memorial for Munich 11 Unveiled in New York
While a ceremony organized by the Israelis and the local community
takes place during every Olympic Games, this one marks the 40th
anniversary of the massacre. The International Olympics Committee
continues to reject international calls for a minute of silence
during the opening ceremony on July 27.
- But the community also has made a point of joining the general
air of celebration sweeping London in the run-up to the Games.
In the past year, nearly every Jewish school, youth group and
charity has run Olympics-related activities. And during the Olympics,
Londons Jews will welcome thousands of Jewish visitors
with social events, synagogue services, guides to Jewish London
and, in the Olympic Village, pastoral care.
- The welcoming efforts are being coordinated by the Jewish
Committee for the London Games, which was established by the
London Jewish Forum and several other community organizations.
- HAMAS SUSPENDS VOTER REGISTRATION IN GAZA
- By FARES AKRAM and ISABEL KERSHNER - Published: July 2, 2012
GAZA The Hamas-run government in Gaza suspended the work
of the Palestinian Central Elections Commission on Monday, a
day before it was to start registering new voters, abruptly halting
one of the few tangible steps toward reconciliation with the
rival Fatah Party.
- The move pushed off the prospect of presidential and parliamentary
elections. Though considered long overdue, no date had been set
for them. The latest delay added a new complication in a reconciliation
process that began more than a year ago with an accord brokered
by Egypt that was described as historic but has mainly resulted
in new rounds of talks, more documents and broken deadlines.
Hamas said it was temporarily halting the work of the commission
for several reasons, among them what it said was the unfair treatment
of Hamas supporters in the West Bank, which is governed by Fatah.
- ANOTHER FAKE PROPAGANDA PLOY
- Hamas leaders in Gaza announced that a young child, Ali Muataz
al-Shawaf - 4y.o, had been killed in an Israeli airstrike. Pictures
of the childs bloody body were published in Palestinian Authority
media outlets. However, IDF officials later revealed the story
as a lie. There was no Israeli airstrike in the region in which

- Published today (updated) 03/07/2012 20:44 http://www.maannews.net/eng/ViewDetails.aspx?ID=501119
- RAMALLAH (Maan) -- Hundreds of protesters demonstrated
in Ramallah on Tuesday calling on the Palestinian Authority not
to negotiate with Israel. Protesters gathered in Manara square,
chanting "The people want to bring down Oslo," referring
to the 1993 agreement that established the PA as a 5-year interim
administration to govern until a final treaty was reached.
- Demonstrators headed to President Mahmoud Abbas' headquarters,
the Muqata, carrying Palestinian flags and denouncing talks with
Israeli vice premier Shaul Mofaz. Abbas had been scheduled to
meet Mofaz in Ramallah, sparking protests on Saturday, but the
meeting was canceled. Palestinian police violently shut down
Saturday's protest, leading to a second protest Sunday against
police brutality, which police also violently suppressed.
- Tuesday's protest ended peacefully. Security forces in civilian
clothes took photos of protesters and police and presidential
guards were stationed at the Muqata but forces did not intervene
in the demonstration.
- A government source told Reuters that police were under orders
on Tuesday to allow the protesters to take their message to the
gleaming stone walls of Abbas's compound, which is also the burial
place of previous president, Yasser Arafat.
- "The streets are open to us today, and that's the result
of a political decision. They realize the violence before made
them look bad," said Ali Nakhle, a student who joined approximately
400 other, mainly youthful protesters in downtown Ramallah.

- As well as demanding an end to negotiations with Israel,
activists also called on the PA to end its security coordination
with Israel which was established in the Oslo Accords. In a statement,
the Palestinians for Dignity group which participated in the
protests called for a new strategy of resistance to achieve Palestinian

- ISRAEL TO LEGALIZE SETTLEMENTS' OUTPOST
- Committee headed by Supreme Court Justice (Ret.) Edmond Levy
recommends legalizing West Bank settlements
Mon, Jul 09, 2012. | ROY TOV - " ..... Netanyahu announced
he will respect the decision, but also that the homes will not
be destroyed, but rather will be moved to a military area within
Beit El. He announced also the construction of additional 300
homes in Beit El, 117 in Ariel, 92 in Maale Adumin, 144
in Admam, and 84 in Kiryat Arba. Overall, this is many times
the number of Ulpana houses to be moved; Netanyahu claimed a
political victory.... The Levi Committee had been headed by Supreme
Court Justice (Ret.) Edmond Levy, eventually as a result of the
2005 Sasson Report which had ruled 120 settlements and outposts
as illegal under Israeli law. Unlawfulness in the West Bank has
various layers. The international community considers Israeli
settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law,
but the Israeli government disputes this. The international community
considers Israeli settlements a violation of the Fourth Geneva
Conventions prohibition on the transfer of an occupying
powers civilian population into occupied territory. Thus,
they are illegal under international law. Israel disputes that
the Fourth Geneva Convention applies to the Palestinian territories
as they had not been legally held by a sovereign prior to Israel
taking control of them. This view has been rejected by the International
Court of Justice and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
The vast majority of West Bank settlements are in between these
definitions; they are considered illegal by the entire world,
but legal by the Israeli government. However, sometimes they
are considered unlawful even by the Israeli government. Now,
this is about to change.
- The Levi Committee ruled that the State must devise ways
to legalize contested settlement and outposts in the West Bank.
Moreover, it recommended easing land acquisition and zoning protocols
for Jews residing in the area. This is important since many of
the purchases are highly questionable. For example, in Migron,
most of the land occupied by the outpost belongs to several Palestinian
families living in the nearby villages of Burqa and Deir Dibwan.
The Associated Press discovered in 2008, that Abd Allatif Hassan
Sumarin, who supposedly sold a plot of land to the Binyamin Regional
Council owned Al Wattan Ltd in 2004, had been dead since 1961.
It is unclear if the new committee accepts such events as legal.
It doesnt matter, they are clearly illegitimate and unacceptable.
A regime sanctioning such crimes renders itself illegitimate..".

- ZIONISM'S END
- Dispute over military conscription for ultra-Orthodox Jews
reaches incendiary point.
July 17, 2012, turned out to be a historic day. Israels
Kadima party left Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus government
in a dispute over military conscription for ultra-Orthodox Jews.
By July 31, the Knesset must pass a new law on the conscription
issue, after the Tal Law was nullified by the Supreme
Court this February. Netanyahu had offered Kadima a compromise
on the new law; 50% of ultra-Orthodox Jews (Haredim and Hasidim)
between the ages of 18 and 23 would be drafted by the IDF, while
the others would be drafted into civil service between the ages
of 23 and 26. It is with deep regret that I say that there
is no choice but to decide to leave the government, Shaul
MofazKadimas leadersaid afterwards. In this
trivial way ended Kadima and Likuds 70-day partnership.
In this trivial way, Zionism may have reached the point-of-no-return
towards its end.
- Supreme Court
- Since its legislation on July 23, 2002, the Tal Law
kept most ultra-Orthodox Jews out of the IDF. Several lawyers
and the Movement for the Quality of Government in Israel asked
for the nullification of the Tal Law since it discriminated between
ultra-Orthodox Jews and secular Jews, by giving the first group
the choice to enroll in the IDF voluntarily. Israels Supreme
Court of Justice is an unusual law establishment; it usually
operates as the highest appellate court in the country, but it
features also a special operational mode as a court of first
instance, called in Hebrew bagatz (acronym for High Court for
Justice, not to be confounded with the formal name of the court:
The High Court). In this instance, everybody under the jurisdiction
of the court can initiate a process against the State of Israel,
if he feels one of his rights has been legitimately oppressed
by the State. This can happen because Israel lacks a Constitution;
thus, the Knesset can legislate laws that anywhere else would
be considered illegitimate (for example Basic Law: Israel as
the Nation-State of the Jewish People). Accordingly, on February
21, 2012, the Supreme Court annulled the Tal Law,
with a majority of 6 justices against 3. Dorit Beinisch, then
president of the court, supported the decision: we can
help to bring a gradual change, she said. Asher Dan Grunis,
the current one, opposed the decision. He said that he thought
that the Court will bring Haredim to serve in the IDF is an
illusion. It doesnt help the status of the
Court, we wont bring change, he added. He was right.
VIOLENCE ESCALATES IN DAMASCUS AFTER REBEL BOMBING KILLS 3 TOP
- The Washington Post, July 19, 2012 - ANTAKYA, Turkey
Government forces were reported to be shelling several neighborhoods
of Damascus on Thursday, a day after a bombing that killed three
senior military figures brought the bloodshed that has engulfed
Syria to the heart of President Bashar al-Assads regime.
- The blast, which targeted a mid-morning meeting of top security
chiefs charged with suppressing Syrias 16-month-old uprising,
appeared to have been meticulously planned and executed, suggesting
that rebels have managed to infiltrate Assads security
apparatus in ways that call into question his regimes capacity
- The attack seemed to mark a pivotal moment in the revolt,
the first time that the regimes tightly controlled and
fiercely loyal inner circle has been punctured since Syrians
first took to the streets to demand reforms in March 2011 and
then later took up arms. Among those killed was Assef Shawkat,
the presidents brother-in-law, who was widely feared as
one of the chief enforcers of the brutal tactics that have been
used in the effort to quell the unrest. Continued:

the South Korean Embassy in Israel for this blog post, I have
made a few minor updates to the article below at the Embassy's
request, to better reflect Talmud Study in Korea YNET has reposted
an updated version as well. Close to 50 million people live in
South Korea, and almost everyone is taught the Talmud at home
by their parents. "We tried to understand why the Jews are
geniuses, and we came to the conclusion that we think it is because
they study Talmud," said the Korean ambassador to Israel,
Mr. Young Sam Ma. And this is how "Rav Papa" became
a more well known scholar in Korea than in Israel.
- It is doubtful if the Amoraic scholars, Abbaye and Rava imagined
their discussions of Jewish law in the Beit Midrash in Babylon
would be taught hundreds of years later in East Asia. Yet it
turns out that the laws of an "egg born on a holiday"
is actually very interesting to the South Koreans who have required
that Talmud study be part of their compulsory school curriculum.
[Note from Jameel: The Korean Embassy in Israel probably received
alot of complaints about Talmud being part of the compulsory
school curriculum, and requested that the statement read: Yet,
it turns out that

- OBAMA'S OCTOBER SURPRISE: LARGEST WAR GAMES IN US-ISRAELI
- By Richard Silverstein - Global Research, June 27, 2012 -
Antiwar.com - Richard Silverstein reports on newly published
accounts in the Hebrew language journal, Maariv, that the US
and Israel will conduct a massive war game/military exercise
"of immense importance" in October.
- Silverstein interprets this war game in the context of the
tension between Israel and Iran and the US presidential election.
In his first sentence, Silverstein says the war games will be
"a 'dress rehearsal' for the aftermath of an Israeli attack
- But further into his analysis, Silverstein examines other
possibilities. For instance, that the war game might be cancelled
if Israel does, indeed, attack Iran, or that the exercise represents
"tacit acceptance that Israel won't attack Iran until the
(presidential) elections." While Silverstein's analysis
is so broad as to be indeterminate, he is convinced that the
timing of the war games is predicated on the US presidential
election and the heightening tensions between Israel and Iran.
The most likely interpretation is that posited in Maariv, that
the war games will represent an aftermath to an Israeli attack
on Iran scheduled for September or October as originally reported
in the Guardian last January.
- Israels daily Maariv reported yesterday that the long
delayed war games between U.S. and Israeli forces will take place
in October. It noted that some commentators are calling it a
dress rehearsal for the aftermath of an Israeli attack
on Iran. IDF sources quoted in the article called the exercises
of immense importance.
- These will be the largest such military maneuvers in the
history of the joint U.S.-Israel relationship. They were originally
scheduled for several months ago but were canceled abruptly,
according to some, at the behest of Ehud Barak, who wanted to
send a message to the U.S. that Israel might be planning an attack
and prefer not to have such an event interfere with it.
- Three thousand U.S. Air Force personnel and a larger IDF
contingent will focus on air warfare and missile defense. The
primary goal is to prepare for the aftermath of an Israeli attack
on Iran and the expected counterattack against Israel. Continued:

- BULGARIA, THE ARAB SWEDE "TERRORIST" AND ISRAEL'S
CALL TO BOMB IRAN (updated)
Posted by Charles E. CarlsonJuly 28, 2012 - Israel continues
to act on the premise that if they tell their chosen story often
enough and loud enough, they do not have to tell the truth. On
July 26, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in the
New York Times the attack (in Bulgaria) was carried out
by Hezbollah, the long arm of Iran. (Bulgaria bus
blast linked to Hezbollah)* Unnamed US officials
also so stated, but no one offered a scrap of hard evidence,
or even a rumor, as to why or how the governments of Iran or
Lebanon are involved. Sadly, our own government is gradually
adopting the Zionist practice of saying what they want you believe,
swearing to it, and repeating it until most people accept it.
A few months ago I published a feature article I hope you will
reread, entitled Operation Cast Lead: Its Zionese
for Burning People. It began with Zionese is the
unofficial spoken language of the State of Israel. Zionese
is not a language of letter, syllable, and punctuation. It is
the delivery of a few so-called truths that must
be learned and repeated consistently without reservation. The
trick is in the delivery. Zionese is the art of telling a story
that most would reject, and repeating it as if most believe it.
If either Israel or the U.S. has evidence, why not share it with
those they are trying to convince, as any sane person does when
trying to persuade a skeptic? I hope you will take time to read,
pass on and post The Arab Swede Terrorist from Guantanamo,
and Israels Call to Bomb Iran. It would not surprise
me if Netanyahu and the unnamed US officials will
next decide the Colorado theater assassin and Norways Anders
Breivik were also working for Iran, too. The bigger the lie,
the easier to believe, and as long as it works. That is the language
