“Arm of the Lord” refers in the Scripture to the spiritual and military salvation of the Jewish People from the gentiles who tyrannize them. Israel’s last vindication and salvation in the eyes of the many nations is a central theme in the last 27 chapters of Isaiah.
The salvation of the afflicted nation in the presence of their persecutors – the gentile nations.
Isaiah 52:9-10 "Burst out in song, sing together, O ruins of Jerusalem, for the Lord has consoled his people; He has redeemed Jerusalem. The Lord has revealed His holy arm before the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God."

PA Looks to Obama as Savior
Roadside signs have cropped up across the Palestinian Authority over the past few days, confirming many Israelis' fears that U.S. President Obama is actually not on Israel's side. The signs read: "Barack Obama, free us from slavery, occupation and the settlements."
The signs are part of a "Dear Barack" campaign that also includes email letters to the White House. The PA's Wafa news agency reports that thousands of PA residents have been sending personal emails to Obama's personal address every day, encouraging him to act on their behalf. "Only free people can free us from the slavery and humiliation, and history will judge them as heroes," the emails state.
On June 25, 2006, IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, was kidnapped by Hamas terrorists within Israeli territory. He is being held hostage along with other Arabs, being merely pawns in the war to destroy Israel. Did you know that the suffering of millions of Arabs is perpetuated only for political purposes by the Arab states?
The Palestinian National Charter Article 14:
The destiny of the Arab nation, and indeed Arab existence itself, depend upon the destiny of the Palestine cause. From this interdependence springs the Arab nation's pursuit of, and striving for, the liberation of Palestine. The people of Palestine play the role of the vanguard in the realization of this sacred (qawmi) goal.
Article 18, The Charter of the Hamas: ”The women in the house and the family of Jihad fighters, whether they are mothers or sisters, carry out the most important duty of caring for the home and raising the children upon the moral concepts and values which derive from Islam; and of educating their sons to observe the religious injunctions in preparation for the duty of Jihad awaiting them. Therefore, we must pay attention to the schools and curricula upon which Muslim girls are educated, so as to make them righteous mothers, who are conscious of their duties in the war of liberation.”
Is this just and right, that two notorious terror organizations are holding millions of Arabs as instruments and hostages in different countries of the Middle East, for this purpose?
Farid Ghadry, President of the Reform Party of Syria, has written: "We Arabs must be the ones to stop Hamas and Hizbullah, rather than support their demonic and twisted logic of resisting development, enlightenment, and progress of the region. Even when development and enlightenment stare them in the face, their instinct is to destroy them pretending to safeguard their honor, the mechanics of which supersede all else including a happy life of fulfillment and accomplishments.
So while we abhor violence of all kind, Israel's campaign against Hamas must continue to the bitter end not only for the sake of peace but also to help Arabs realize they have a choice: Destroy like Gaza or develop like Dubai. Will this happen soon? Maybe not, but if a wake-up call and a nudge, once in a while, to pierce through the fog of deceit perpetrated by Syria and Iran is what it takes to see the light, then we stand by the West and Israel in the only hope that an Arab Renaissance in the Levant may actually have a chance of resurrection."
The Charter of the Hamas: The Three Circles Article 14: The problem of the liberation of Palestine relates to three circles: the Palestinian, the Arab and the Islamic. Each one of these circles has a role to play in the struggle against Zionism and it has duties to fulfill. It would be an enormous mistake and an abysmal act of ignorance to disregard anyone of these circles. For Palestine is an Islamic land where the First Qibla and the third holiest site are located. That is also the place
whence the Prophet, be Allah's prayer and peace upon him, ascended to heavens.
"Glorified be He who carried His servant by night from the Inviolable Place of worship to the Far Distant Place of Worship, the neighborhood whereof we have blessed, that we might show him of our tokens! Lo! He, only He, is the Hearer, the Seer ." Sura XVII (al-Isra'), verse 1 (See "The Temple Mount" on this assertion).
In consequence of this state of affairs, the liberation of that land is an individual duty binding on all Muslims everywhere. This is the base on which all Muslims have to regard the problem; this has to be understood by all Muslims. When the problem is dealt with on this basis, where the full potential of the three circles is mobilized, then the current circumstances will change and the day of liberation will come closer.
You are more awful as a fear in their bosoms than Allah. That is because they are a folk who understand not.
Sura LIX, (Al-Hashr, the Exile), verse 13
Video: Obama Admits He Is A Muslim
Obama to Abbas: I am committed to creation of Palestinian state: U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday pledged commitment to the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian state and vowed to hold both Israel and the Palestinians accountable if either side takes actions that "undermine trust" during U.S.-mediated talks launched this week (Haaretz, 11.05.10).
PA Finds Bibi's Biblical Reference 'Distasteful'
Senior Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat has criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for mentioning the Jewish people's historic tie to Jerusalem as described in the Bible. He accused the prime minister of “[using] religion to incite hatred and fear.” Leaders in the PA, and Muslims leaders in Israel, have often portrayed the Jewish connection to Jerusalem, and to the Temple Mount in particular, as a threat to Islam...
The Palestine Liberation Organization: Article 27:
The PLO is among the closest to the Hamas, for it constitutes a father, a brother, a relative, a friend. Can a Muslim turn away from his father, his brother, his relative or his friend? Our homeland is one, our calamity is one, our destiny is one and our enemy is common to both of us... the PLO has adopted the idea of a Secular State, and so we think of it. Secular thought is diametrically opposed to religious thought... For the Islamic nature of Palestine is part of our religion, and anyone who neglects his religion is bound to lose.
And who forsakes the religion of Abraham, save him who befools himself? Sura II (Al-Baqra - the Co), verse 130
When the PLO adopts Islam as the guideline for life, then we shall become its soldiers, the fuel of its fire which will burn the enemies.
"For Muslims, Ishmael, the father of the Arabs, Abraham's other son, is the one who Abraham bound and almost sacrificed to the Lord. Ishmael and not Isaac. In their minds Abraham is the first Muslim, Islam is the true religion, and Muslims are the chosen people; it is they who will "inherit the gate of their enemy." The fundamental disagreement as to who was at the Akeida is at the root of the Arab-Jewish conflict (Genesis 22:1-18)."
Moshiach Bin Laden by Yishai Fleisher
Genesis 24:60 "And they blessed Rebecca and said to her, "Our sister, may you become thousands of myriads, and may your seed inherit the cities of their enemies."
It is interesting to note that the Bible makes reference to a fictitious nation confronting Israel. "
They (Israel) have provoked My jealousy with a non god, provoked My anger with their vanities. Thus, I will provoke their jealousy with a non people, provoke their anger with a foolish nation" (Deuteronomy 32:21).
The Myth of the Palestinian People By Yehezkel Bin-Nun
Way back on March 31, 1977, the Dutch newspaper Trouw published an interview with Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Zahir Muhsein. Here's what he said:
The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism.
For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan." (
Palestinian people do not exist By Joseph Farah, WND July 11, 2002).
"Be strong and of good courage; do not fear and do not be dismayed because of the king of Assyria (read: America) and because of all the multitude that is with him, because He Who is with us is greater than those with him. With him is an arm of flesh, and with us is the Lord our God to help us and to wage our wars," and the people relied on the words of Hezekiah, king of Judah." (II Chr. 32:7-8).
"So says the Lord: Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart turns away from the Lord. He shall be like a lone tree in the plain, and will not see when good comes, and will dwell on parched land in the desert, on salt-sodden soil that is not habitable.
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord; the Lord shall be his trust. For he shall be like a tree planted by the water, and by a rivulet spreads its roots, and will not see when heat comes, and its leaves shall be green, and in the year of drought will not be anxious, neither shall it cease from bearing fruit.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and when it is sick, who will recognize it?
I, the Lord, search the heart, test the kidneys, to give everyone according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds" (Jeremiah 17:5-10, Psalm Ch. 1).
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it,
people will eventually come to believe it..." (Josef Goebbels).
From Obama’s Speech in Cairo to the Muslim world, delivered on June 4, 2009, New York Times: "...it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people – Muslims and Christians – have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations – large and small – that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: the situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable..."
Barack Obama, the former law professor, seems to have forgotten the facts that; “The Arab armies entered Palestine to protect the Palestinians from the Zionist tyranny but, instead, they abandoned them, forced them to emigrate and to leave their homeland, and threw them into prisons similar to the ghettos in which the Jews used to live” (Mahmoud Abbas, Falastin a-Thaura, March 1976). (Read more: Myth and Fact: Did Arab Leaders Encourage Palestinians to Flee in 1948?
By Mitchell G. Bard).
There is general acknowledgement among Palestinians that Arab leaders bear responsibility for the mass flight of Arabs from Israel in 1948, and were the cause of the "refugee" problem. Furthermore, the fact that this information has been validated by public figures and refugees in the PA media itself confirms that this responsibility is well-known - even though for propaganda purposes its leaders continue to blame Israel publicly for "the expulsion."
Read more: PA daily: Arabs left homes on their own to facilitate destruction of Israel -- and thus became refugees by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook, May 20, 2008).
"What did the Arabs and the Palestinians do with their own refugees? After rejecting the UN resolution which called for a Jewish state, and after their defeat in the battlefield, when they failed to drive the Jews into the sea, the Arab countries developed a brilliant scheme. With the help of the United Nations, they created an unprecedented machinery to keep the refugees in camps without any hope for rehabilitation
r. Avi Beker, Remembering the Forgotten Exodus).
Arab leaders caused refugee problem By Joseph Farah
"The fact that there are these refugees is the direct consequence of the act of the Arab states in opposing partition and the Jewish state. The Arab states agree upon this policy unanimously and they must share in the solution of the problem" (Emile Ghoury, secretary of the Palestinian Arab Higher Committee, in an interview with the Beirut Telegraph Sept. 6, 1948).
"The Arab state which had encouraged the Palestine Arabs to leave their homes temporarily in order to be out of the way of the Arab invasion armies, have failed to keep their promise to help these refugees" (The Jordanian daily newspaper Falastin, Feb. 19, 1949).
"Who brought the Palestinians to Lebanon as refugees, suffering now from the malign attitude of newspapers and communal leaders, who have neither honor nor conscience? Who brought them over in dire straits and penniless, after they lost their honor? The Arab states, and Lebanon amongst them, did it" (The Beirut Muslim weekly Kul-Shay, Aug. 19, 1951).
The Arab states that initiated the hostilities have never accepted responsibility – despite their enormous wealth and their ability to assimilate tens of millions of refugees in their largely under-populated nations. And other states have failed to hold them accountable.
It's bad enough the Arab states created a small nation of refugees by their actions. It's worse that they have successfully blamed that international crime on the Jews.
Today, of course, this cruel charade continues. The suffering of millions of Arabs is perpetuated only for political purposes by the Arab states. They are merely pawns in the war to destroy Israel.
There were some 100 million refugees around the world following World War II. The Palestinian Arab group is the only one in the world not absorbed or integrated into their own people's lands. Since then, millions of Jewish refugees from around the world have been absorbed in the tiny nation of Israel.
It makes no sense to expect that same tiny Jewish state to solve a refugee crisis it did not create."
Saudi Columnist: "The Right of Return Is an Illusion"
Saudi columnist Yousef Nasser Al-Sweidan argued that the Palestinian refugees' right of return is an idea that cannot be implemented, and that the only solution is for the refugees to be naturalized in the countries where they currently reside
"The lie can be maintained only for such time as
the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State” (Josef Goebbels).
In January of 2009, Saudi officials warned that the U.S. would need to “drastically revise” its Middle East policy, particularly towards Israel, if it wanted to maintain influence in the region. "If the U.S. wants to continue playing a leadership role in the Middle East and keep its strategic alliances intact – especially its 'special relationship' with Saudi Arabia – it will have to drastically revise its policies vis-a-vis Israel and Palestine,” (INN, 04/03/09).
Obama Bows to Saudi King, Supports Saudi Initiative
The Six Day War: Forty Years On:
International Law makes a clear distinction between land "occupied" during a war of aggression and land taken as a result of a defensive war.
"You shall not fear them. You shall surely remember what the Lord, your God, did to Pharaoh and to all of Egypt: The great trials that your eyes saw, the signs, the wonders, the mighty hand, and the outstretched arm with which the Lord, your God, brought you (Jews) out (from oppression and misery, slavery, idolatry, etc). So will the Lord, Your God, do to all the peoples you fear"
(Deuteronomy 7:18-19, Exodus 14:30-31, Ch. 15).
Micah 7:15-17 "As in the days of your exodus from the land of Egypt, I will show him wonders. Nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might-they shall place a hand upon their mouth; their ears shall become deaf. They shall lick the dust as a snake, as those who crawl on the earth. They shall quake from their imprisonment; they shall fear the Lord, our God, and they shall fear you."
Here God Himself promises that the future redemption will be attended by miracles and wonders as striking as those of the Exodus from Egypt. These wonders will be witnessed by the nations who will gather against Jerusalem with Gog and Magog, and they will be ashamed of all the might with which they thought to conquer Jerusalem (RaDaK). See also Jeremiah 23:7-8, 31:6-11, 16:14-21, 3:14-18, Isaiah 43:5-6, Ezekiel 34:11-16,23-31, Chs. 36-37, Amos 9:11-15.
Use this opportunity to tell Obama to keep his hands off Israel at: "Happy Jerusalem Day: 43rd Anniversary"
One may wonder if US President Barack Obama, the former law professor, who is committed to the creation of Palestinian state - think it is just and right that the tiny Jewish state is to solve a refugee crisis it did not create...
NY UNRWA: Time for Arab Nations to Absorb 'Refugees'
The outgoing director of the New York office of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency has angered Jordan after stating it is time for Arab nations to absorb their brethren who are “refugees” from the 1948 war. Andrew Whitley stated that Palestinian refugees must not live in the illusion of achieving the “right to return” and that the Arab countries must search for a place for them in their lands to resettle there.
