WHAT REALLY SHOCKS UK PM CAMERON? Terrorism, air crashes, and JEWS BUILDING HOUSES IN JERUSALEM, Israel's ancient Capital - IRONICALLY, while the EU denies Jerusalem to the Jews, it is the British and other Europeans who are being pushed out of their own cities by violent MUSLIM COLONIZERS

Here is a brief list of things that British PM David Cameron has been shocked about over the past couple of years:

1. Malaysian air disaster, 239 killed
Peshawar school massacre, 141 killed
Nepal earthquake, 9000 killed
Tunisia terror attacks, 38 killed (31 British) 5. Paris terror attacks, 130 killed
Jews building houses in their historic capital.  This one merited a "GENUINELY SHOCKING" classification. 

Actually, his words about Jews building houses were even stronger than those of the other events, because that was the only one he termed "genuinely shocking."   Do you get the impression that world leaders, including those who call themselves Israel's friends, have a fairly twisted sense of priorities?
Jerusalem, Israel's capital, at night
Thousands-of-years-old archaeological artifacts speak of the ancient Jewish civilization, which is much older than European countries that today deny legitimacy to Israel.
Europeans did not want Jews around them, so they herded them into ghettos, and slaughtered them in several genocidal waves over the centuries, culminating in the Holocaust. 
Now Europeans do not want Jews in Jerusalem either.  Maybe in a little ghetto in Tel Aviv, just to be generous.  But not in their Biblical heartland. Europeans really seem to have a pathological obsession with Jews.
But as PM Cameron holds his head in shock at Jews building and living in Jerusalem, Europe continues to suffer from a relentless invasion of Muslims - with the same supremacist and violent ideology as that of the Palestinians, Britain's and the EU's pets.
And here is the irony:  While Britain and the European Union demand the partition of Israel to create another Islamic state on ancient Jewish land, they - the Europeans - are losing land and sovereignty to Muslim colonizers!  Those areas are known as 'sensitive zones' or No-Go Zones, where national authorities such as police and firefighters cannot enter anymore.   Muslim settlers in much of Europe rule themselves according to Sharia Law.
Cameron just admitted a couple of days ago that whether Britain stays or leaves the European Union, it is incapable of containing the torrent of migrants invading the island.   In other words, for Britain and the rest of Europe the expression "national sovereignty" is only a memory.
How is that for poetic justice for those who want to deny Israel's right to its thousands-of-years-old capital? 
And there is more:  London - Britain's capital - is no longer an English city.  It now has a non-English majority composed mainly of Asians and Africans.
What would Winston Churchill say?  What would the thousands of Britons who gave up their lives to fight for freedom and against Nazism say as they see today's British people meekly surrender their land to Islam, an ideology of supremacy, oppression, violence, and backwardness - without firing a single shot?

Mohammad never set foot in that city.  Armies of his followers did.  Islam is the real occupier
Islam's tenuous connection to Jerusalem
by Eli E. Hertz

Kotel at sunrise
Jerusalem is never mentioned in the Quran and Mohammed never set foot on Its soil.
Despite 1,300 years of Muslim Arab rule, Jerusalem was never the capital of an Arab entity, nor was it ever mentioned in the Palestine Liberation Organization’s covenant until Israel regained control of East Jerusalem in the Six-Day War of 1967.  Overall, the role of Jerusalem in Islam is best understood as the outcome of political exigencies impacting religious belief.
Mohammed, who founded Islam in 622 CE, was born and raised in present-day Saudi Arabia and never set foot in Jerusalem. His connection to the city came years after his death when the Dome of the Rock shrine and the al-Aqsa mosque were built in 688 and 691, respectively, their construction spurred by political and religious rivalries.
In 638 CE, the Caliph (or successor to Mohammed) Omar and his invading armies captured Jerusalem from the Byzantine Empire.
In 638 CE, the Caliph (or successor to Mohammed) Omar and his invading armies captured Jerusalem from the Byzantine Empire.  

One reason they wanted to erect a holy structure in Jerusalem was to proclaim Islam’s supremacy over Christianity and its most important shrine, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

More important was the power struggle within Islam itself. The Damascus-based Umayyad Caliphs who controlled Jerusalem wanted to establish an alternative holy site if their rivals blocked access to Mecca. 

 That was important because the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca, was (and remains today) one of the Five Pillars of Islam. As a result, they built what became known as the Dome of the Rock shrine and the adjacent mosque.

To enhance the prestige of the ‘substitute Mecca,’ the Jerusalem mosque was named al-Aqsa. It means ‘the furthest mosque’ in Arabic, but has far broader implications, since it is the same phrase used in a key passage of the Quran called “The Night Journey.” 

In that passage, Mohammed arrives at ‘al-Aqsa’ on a winged steed accompanied by the Archangel Gabriel; from there they ascend into heaven for a divine meeting with Allah, after which Mohammed returns to Mecca.

Naming the Jerusalem mosque al-Aqsa was an attempt to say the Dome of the Rock was the very spot from which Mohammed ascended to heaven, thus tying Jerusalem to divine revelation in Islamic belief. 

The problem however, is that Mohammed died in the year 632, nearly 50 years before the first construction of the al-Aqsa Mosque was completed.

Jerusalem never replaced the importance of Mecca in the Islamic world. When the Umayyad dynasty fell in 750, Jerusalem also fell into near obscurity for 350 years, until the Crusades. During those centuries, many Islamic sites in Jerusalem fell into disrepair and in 1016 the Dome of the Rock collapsed.

Still, for 1,300 years, various Islamic dynasties (Syrian, Egyptian and Turkish) continued to govern Jerusalem as part of their overall control of the Land of Israel, disrupted only by the Crusaders.

What is amazing is that over that period, not one Islamic dynasty ever made Jerusalem its capital. 

By the 19th century Jerusalem had been so neglected by Islamic rulers that several prominent Western writers who visited Jerusalem were moved to write about it.

French writer Gustav Flaubert, for example, found “ruins everywhere” during his visit in 1850 when it was part of the Turkish Empire (1516-1917).

Seventeen years later Mark Twain wrote that Jerusalem had “become a pauper village.”

Indeed, Jerusalem’s importance in the Islamic world only appears evident when non-Muslims (including the Crusaders, the British and the Jews) control or capture the city. Only at those points in history did Islamic leaders claim Jerusalem as their third most holy city after Mecca and Medina. 

That was again the case in 1967, when Israel captured Jordanian-controlled East Jerusalem (and the Old City) during the 1967 Six-Day War.

Oddly, the PLO’s National Covenant, written in 1964, never mentioned Jerusalem.

Only after Israel regained control of the entire city did the PLO ‘update’ its Covenant to include Jerusalem.

Muslims have no genuine religious respect for the sacredness of the site, which is routinely used as a soccer field and where Arab families go to picnic.

The Battle over Jerusalem and Temple Mount - Historical background
VIRTUAL TOUR of the ancient Jewish Temple of Jerusalem


JEWISH HISTORY AND TRADITION hijacked by Islam.  In Jewish tradition, it is known as 'the Foundation Stone,' where Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac, and where the ancient Jewish Temples stood.  The Second Jewish Temple was razed by the Romans, who killed or expelled the Jews, and renamed the land of Israel "Palestine," in the hope that the world would forget that there was ever such thing as Israel. 

When Muslims invaded the Land of Israel in the Seventh Century, they renamed the place the Dome of the Rock. Lacking any historical link to the city, Muslims resorted to a newly created fiction to establish their claim.  Muslims refer to it as 'as-Sakrah', the rock from where they believe the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven.  That is ALL their claim to Jerusalem.
These days Muslims deny Jews any claim to Temple Mount.  The appeasing Israeli government submits to Arab demands and - while Jews are allowed to visit the place according to a ruling by the Supreme Court on freedom of worship - police do not allow Jews to even move their lips in prayer, lest it may offend Muslims.

Why do Muslims have control of Temple Mount?  Because after the liberation of this most sacred site in Jewish tradition and history in 1967, the secular and clueless government at that time ceded it to the Muslim Arabs as a conciliatory gesture, never imagining that Arab control would cause never ending Muslim violence in years to come, as Muslims refused to share the site with Jews, violating their 1967 agreement. 

Successive governments of Israel ceded Sinai to Egypt (for "peace"), allowing the area to become a cauldron of jihadism.  Then they surrendered Gaza to the Palestinians, who turned it into a launching pad for rockets against Israeli civilians, and a convenient base to build terror tunnels. 

The Netanyahu government was in secret negotiations to cede the Golan Heights to Syria when the Arab Spring erupted threatening the Assad regime.  Today nobody fully controls the Syrian side of the Golan.  It is a hellish mix of ISIS and other jihadist terrorists fighting it out, along with Iranian, Turkish and Russian forces.  Had Israel surrendered the Golan Heights, terrorists would have easily infiltrated Jewish communities in the rest of Israel through the Sea of Galilee. 

But wait, there is more.  Although Obama and Netanyahu are not even on speaking terms, Obama, through the State Department,  is still nudging Israel to surrender the Golan Heights to Syria - for peace. 

The fact that Syria is a dysfunctional entity full of terror and carnage, while Israel is an island of peace and civilization, does not deter the Obama administration from pushing for any measure that will shrink and weaken Israel in the name of "peace" - a euphemism used to really mean the end of Israel 'piece' by 'piece'.

JERUSALEM - ISRAEL'S CAPITAL IN PICTURES - Unusual scenes from ancient Jerusalem to the present that you may have never seen before

Most of us are familiar with images of Jerusalem dominated by a golden dome and surrounded by ancient walls. Sometimes we see images of bad press, scenes of war or conflict, collisions between religious or political groups, but Jerusalem is way beyond that.
Living so close to this magnificent city, I have had the privilege to experience Jerusalem year-round and this experience is beyond words.  So here are 20 photos that will show you a different perspective of Jerusalem, like you have never seen before.

Police and top Israeli authorities are sometimes complicit with the Arabs desecration of Jewish sites and their takeover of Jerusalem.  
Muslims claim to consider the Temple Mount a holy site, but have been caught doing some unholy things there - like dumping trash.
Muslims claim to consider the Temple Mount a holy site – but they have been caught doing some very unholy things there. From soccer games to picnics to vandalism, Muslims have historically shown little respect for the site.
But a Jewish group that ascended the Mount in recent days observed what may be the most egregious example of Temple Mount desecration yet – the dumping of trash right on the mount, just meters from the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which Muslims claim as their third-holiest site.

The group observed a dump truck about to release its contents, and called police over to intervene. Instead of stopping the truck driver, police filmed the Jewish group, and demanded that they identify themselves. The Jewish group demanded to know the identity of the dumpers, who they said were committing a crime – but to no avail.
Tensions rose and shouting ensued between the police and the Jewish group, while Arabs stood by and observed. Police made no move to stop the Arabs, but began pushing members of the Jewish group off the Mount. Police also refused to identify themselves. Eventually, police detained members of the Jewish group and ushered them off the Mount.
The Temple Mount is Judaism's holiest site. It is the location of the two Holy Temples of Jerusalem - the latter of which was destroyed by the Romans in 70CE - and according to some Jewish traditions it is the point from which the creation of the world began.
