Does the Hebrew Word Alma Really Mean "Virgin"?
For nearly two millennia the church has insisted that the Hebrew word alma can only mean “virgin.” The church must hold this position because Matthew 1:22-23 translates alma in Isaiah 7:14 as “virgin.” The first Gospel quotes this well-known verse to provide the only “Old Testament” proof text for the supposed virgin birth of Jesus. The stakes are high for Christendom and Islam, because if the Hebrew word alma does not mean virgin, Matthew is misquoting the prophet Isaiah, and both a key tenet of Islam and Christianity and the credibility of the first Gospel collapses.
Also, calling the Jews Christ-killers is particularly ironic, because according to the Quran, Jesus did not die on the cross, but Allah made it seem that way (Surah 3:54, cf. 8:30), "But they (the Jews) were deceptive, and Allah was deceptive, for Allah is the best of deceivers." (Surah 4:157, 158) "And [for] their saying, "Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah ." And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain" (Sahih).
"That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Apostle of God";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) know ledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-" "Nay, God raised him up unto Himself;.." (Yusuf Ali).
President Ahmadinejad has declared to the world that he has a “mission from Allah” to bring about the Apocalypse (the destruction of Israel and holocaust on Earth that leaves most of the world's population dead) needed as a precondition to occasion the return of the Mahdi and Jesus.

Surah 4:159 "In (the throes of) death, every single one of the people of the book would certainly (come to know, and would) believe in Jesus. On the Day of Judgment (The Day of Resurrection), he (Jesus) will be a witness against them (Munshey).

Radical Islamists Trying to Take Over Temple Mount:
Hizb ut-Tahrir organization rallies thousands on Temple Mount calling for Islamic Caliphate rule. The rally took place in early July. Demonstrators flew banners bearing inscriptions such as “The Ummah (Muslims) Want Muslim Caliphates.” A giant banner was put up in the Al Aksa mosque courtyard on the Temple Mount. Other banners said “No to Democracy, Yes to Caliphates". The crowd controller, using a microphone, soon had the crowd chanting over and over, “O Muslim armies, awaken to help Muslims.”
The Hizb ut-Tahrir (‘Party of Liberation’) website calls for the Muslim armies to forcefully lift the Gaza IDF naval blockade with military action, making it serve “as a tight noose” around Israel.
Caliphates were a totalitarian system of Muslim government established by Mohammed, who made himself the first Caliph, reigning until 632 C.E. The Caliph was a religious and political leader, who made the Koran's prescriptions, now developed into the legal body known as Sharia law, the law of the land (INN, 28/07/11).

Jeremiah 33:17-18, 20-22 "For thus saith the LORD: There shall not be cut off unto David a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; neither shall there be cut off unto the priests the Levites a man before Me to offer burnt-offerings, and to burn meal-offerings, and to do sacrifice continually." If it is cut off, it will ultimately be reinstated.
"Thus saith the LORD: If ye can break My covenant with the day, and My covenant with the night, so that there should not be day and night in their season; Then may also My covenant be broken with David My servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, My ministers.

Iran to 'speed up' uranium enrichment at nuclear plants:
Iran says it is installing newer and faster centrifuges at its nuclear plants, with the goal of speeding up the uranium enrichment process (BBC, 19 Jul 2011). A story quoting the Iranian Press News (which is closely tied to Iran's government) says that Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has directed the Revolutionary Guard to “immediately” finish their nuclear weapons program. He called for testing in 2012 to be followed by arming missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload to Israeli or other targets (Mike Evans).
Iran Developing Bombs that Can Hit US East:
Elliott Chodoff, an American born political and military analyst and an IDF reserve major, spoke at the “Middle East Briefing” session of the sixth CUFI national summit in Washington this week. Citing Israeli military intelligence, Chodoff was quite forthright in his analysis of a possible attack by Iran. “Israel cannot survive a nuclear attack. You cannot trust a nuclear deterrent. Israel cannot wipe out Iran’s nuclear arsenal but the US can.” Chodoff added that the Iranian regime has been developing bombs that have the capability of hitting US cities on the East coast (INN, 22/07/11). Iran is Building a Secret Missile Installation in Venezuela: (By Reza Kahlili, May 17, 2011, Fox News).
Iran's nuclear program going underground: In a move designed to hinder potential military attacks against their nuclear weapons program, Iran has announced they are moving the majority of their uranium enrichment operation into an underground mountain facility called Fordow, near the Islamic holy city of Qom. The government said the new facility will be three times larger than the current Natanz above-ground site. Olli Heinonen, former deputy director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said the announcement was a clear indication of "Iran moving in the direction of becoming a nuclear weapons capable state" (Mike Evans).
White House links Iran nukes to Palestinian state:
Israel now faces a moment of truth
- it can either acquiesce to international demands and in return have its most serious threats dealt with, or maintain the status quo and have those threats persist... (Israel Today, May 04, 2009).
King Abdullah II of Jordan
said that U.S. President Barack Obama has to prove his credibility by resolving the Arab-Israeli struggle and pointed out that the international community is on the side of the Arab world. He allso backed the theory that solving the problem is the key to reducing the Iranian nuclear threat.
"If there are those that are saying that Iran is playing mischief, then I say it is being allowed to play mischief. The platform they use is the injustice of the Palestinians and Jerusalem. So if you start taking those cards off the table, then Iranian influence on the Mediterranean through Hizbullah and Hamas in Gaza diminishes or becomes non-existent…. By dealing with the core issue, that's when you start taking cards away from the Iranian regime." He said that U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Middle East envoy George Mitchell and American General James Jones all accept his theory (

Norway noncommittal on recognizing Palestinian state
during Abbas visit:
Norway views Palestinian efforts to gain U.N. recognition of statehood as "legitimate " but isn't ready to declare its support for an independent Palestinian state just yet. That was Norway's message to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday as he visited the Scandinavian country, a major donor to the Palestinians.
FM Jonas Gahr Stoere stressed that Norway believes a Palestinian state only can come about as the result of negotiations with Israel,.. Abbas said the PA, too, wants a solution based on negotiations... However, the Palestinians insist they won't enter peace talks unless Israel stops building settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem- (AP, news1130, Jul 18, 2011). USA will not recognize a unilateral declared Palestinian state, without peace negotiations-it also in conflict with the Oslo-agreement and the Roadmap.
An important aspect of the visit is Norways role as the leader of the group of donor nations (AHLC). Norway has a central role when it comes to exert pressure on the group of countries which constantly have to pay billions (Jizya - dhimmi taxes) for the maintenance of the nepotist/corrupt, Jewhating,
Arab Apartheid state.
The Chapter of Jihad, the Islamic Sword on Our Necks:
Surah 9:4-5 ”If the idol worshipers sign a peace treaty with you, and do not violate it, nor band together with others against you, you shall fulfill your treaty with them until the expiration date. GOD loves the righteous. Once the Sacred Months are past, (and they refuse to make peace) you may kill the idol worshipers when you encounter them, punish them, and resist every move they make. If they repent and observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat), you shall let them go. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.”
Not only will the Muslims etc., not show mercy to their Norwegian errand boys, they will be the first to be targeted.
Surah 9:29-31 "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day,
nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizya(if they do not choose to embrace Islam) with willing submission (in defeat and subservience) , and feel themselves subdued (disgraced, humiliated and belittled).
The Jews call 'Uzair (Ezra) a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! They take their priests and their anchorites to be their lords in derogation of Allah, and (they take as their Lord) Christ the son of Mary; yet they were commanded to worship but One Allah: there is no god but He. Praise and glory to Him: (Far is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)."
Surah 9:123 "O you who believe, you shall fight the disbelievers who attack you (Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen) - let them find you stern (
let them find in you harshness
) - and know that GOD is with the righteous." Neither Norway's nationalized antisemittism or years of supporting terrorists and their organizations PLO's Yassir Arafat, PA/Fatah's Abbas (Abu Mazen) or Khaled Meshaal, toppleader of Hamas, will give immunity against Muslim terrorist attacks.
"The international community will pay the price, should the new round of direct talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority fail," Jordan's King Abdullah II says (Press TV, Mon Sep 6, 2010).
The Egyptian threat: Alluding to Israeli suggestions that the Iranian nuclear program is the region's major problem, Aboul Gheit, said he and Clinton discussed Iran, but that the Palestinian question is the core issue and that continued inaction on it would pose dangers beyond the Middle East. "In the absence of such negotiations, and success of the negotiations and seeing the emergence of Palestinian state living side-by-side with Israel, then I think situation will worsen in this part of the world and we will be, all of us, not only people in the region but countries in the region but also the United States and the Western world as well as the world at large-we will be all witnessing a very difficult situation, " (Press Availability With Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Ali Aboul Gheit, May 27, 2009).

Terror hits Norwegian capital:
The Norwegian capital has fallen prey to what seems as a coordinated terror attack Friday: A blast tore through Oslo's government plaza and shortly afterwards, a gunman opened fire on a youth camp just outside the city. Multiple fatalities and casualties have been reported in each case (Ynet News, 07.22.11).
"NRK is reporting that an unknown group called "Helpers of the Global Jihad" (Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami) have posted a message that this is only the beginning of the reaction to Norwegian periodicals publishing the Muhammed cartoons, according to Andrew Boyle, a journalist in Norway (The Guardian). This is unconfirmed.
Peace-Leading Norway Learns Terrorism the Hard Way:
Norway mourns the massacre of 98 victims of terrorism after years of presuming to be immune to terror while presuming to be model for peace. The country was shocked by the 32-year-old gunman, dressed as a policeman, who went on a rampage at a summer camp on an island and killed dozens of children and others at a conference for the youth wing of Norway’s ruling Labor party. The murderer, Anders Behring Breivik, expressed no remorse for the slaughter Friday night. Breivik, a right-wing extremist, wrote a 1,500-word manifesto before the attack, in which he condemned Muslim immigration. Norway also is a safe home for
The document also mentioned former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. The author slams Norway for awarding Arafat the Nobel Peace Prize (Norway gunman says acted alone: Police say Anders Behring Breivik admitted to both bombing and shooting, but not to criminal guilt. Lawyer says client willing to explain himself in court, said killings were 'atrocious but necessary'. "Once you decide to strike, it is better to kill too many than not enough, or you risk reducing the desired ideological impact of the strike," the book said (Ynet News, 07.24.11).
Watch: Oslo gunman's video manifesto:
The 1,500-page manifesto published online by Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian arrested for the killing of at least 93 people in the
double terror attack
which took place in Oslo on Friday, was joined by a video in which he explains his "vision." ." He also described himself as being "pro-Zionism" and "pro-Israeli nationalism" (Ynet News, 07.24.11).
Report: Norwegian Murderer an Ardent Supporter of Israel:
A document published by Norway murderer Anders Behring Breivik revealed his support for Israel and his hatred of Islam. Anders Behring Breivik, who committed
the massacre in Norway
on Friday in which over 90 people were murdered, spoke out in the past against Islam and said that he is a strong supporter of Israel, Channel 2 News reported on Sunday.
According to the report, in an English document he published on the Internet before the massacre, Breivik called himself a strong supporter of Zionism, praised
the founder of Zionism, and attacked the European political establishment because he saw it as being anti-Israel.
The suspect is reported by local media to be a fundamentalist Christian who had links with right-wing extremists. (Peres Sends Condolences to Oslo after Terror Attacks Kill 92: A blond, blue-eyed 32 year old Norwegian set a car bomb in Oslo and went on a shooting spree on Friday, killing 94. Motives unknown (INN, 24/07/11).
Rightwing extremism and Christian fundamentalism can be a deadly combination.
Breivik also quoted a series of Israeli professors such as Itamar Rabinovich and Eyal Zisser in the document. He also specifically mentioned Arutz Sheva and the leftist Haaretz newspaper.
“It’s time to end the stupid support for the Palestinians and begin to support our cultural cousins – Israel,” Channel 2 quoted Breivik as having written in the document (INN, 25/07/11).
European 'New Right' MPs in Samaria:
'This is Jewish Land!' Senior European parliamentarians concerned about Islamic expansion visit Samaria, declare full support for Jews.
The group included Heinz-Christian Strache, head of the Austrian Freedom Party, who is seen as a likely candidate to become the next chancellor of Austria; Filip Dewinter of Belgium's Vlaams Belang party; MP Frank Creyelman, who heads the Belgian Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee; René Stadtkewitz, Chairman of Germany's Freedom Party; and Claus Pandi, editor-in-chief of Krone Zeitung, the biggest newspaper in Austria. The visit coincides with that of Dutch Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders in Israel. (INN, 06/12/10).
Europe’s Extreme Righteous:
Far-right European politicians find love—and common cause—in Israel. Only a few years ago, many of Europe’s far-right politicians were openly anti-Semitic. Now some of the same populist parties are embracing Israel to unite against what they perceive to be a common threat.
But these were no ordinary travelers with Zionist sympathies. Rather, on this trip to Israel were a Belgian politician known for his contacts with SS veterans, an Austrian with neo-Nazi ties, and a Swede whose political party has deep roots in Swedish fascism
—unlikely visitors to pay their respects at Yad Vashem, perhaps, unless one considers the political currents in Israel and Europe, and the adage that one’s enemy’s enemy is one’s friend.
But members of the Knesset did meet with the group, which signed a “Jerusalem Declaration” guaranteeing Israel’s right to defend itself against terror. “We stand at the vanguard in the fight for the Western, democratic community” against the “totalitarian threat” of “fundamentalist Islam,” says the document, which was signed by members of the group that included Heinz-Christian Strache, head of the Austrian Freedom Party; Filip Dewinter, head of Belgium’s ultranationalist Vlaams Belang; René Stadtkewitz, founder of the German Freedom Party; and Kent Ekeroth, the international secretary for the Sweden Democrats, a populist anti-immigration party.
As if to prove his readiness to defend the Holy Land, Strache donned camouflage war paint and an Israeli Defense Forces combat jacket for a picture with paratroopers of the 101st “Cobra” Battalion on their base near the Gaza Strip.
(The last photo of Strache in military regalia became a minor scandal in Austria when it surfaced in 2008. The picture showed him with leading Austrian neo-Nazis and Holocaust deniers, and was apparently taken around 1990 when Strache was reportedly active in the Viking Youth, an illegal neo-Nazi group.)
The history of the Sweden Democrats is equally controversial. Until 1995 the party was headed by Anders Klarström, who had previously belonged to the openly fascist Nordic Reich Party. Convicted in 1986 for illegal possession of firearms and death threats against a Jewish actor, whom he called a “Jew pig” and threatened to burn, Klarström was one of dozens of officials and members purged by the party in the 1990s. Still, Lena Posner-Körösi, president of the Official Council of Jewish Communities in Sweden, describes the Sweden Democrats as a “neo-Nazi party.”
In an interview before his death in a 2008 car crash, Jörg Haider, the longtime leader of the Austrian Freedom Party and Strache’s predecessor, talked of Strache’s plans to use Israel to make the party more respectable. “If the Jews accept us, then we won’t have a problem,” Haider said Strache told him.
For the European politicians, this is a useful alliance, too: many find that support for Israel dovetails nicely with an anti-Islam platform.
Sweden Democrats’ Ekeroth, adding that their newfound love for Israel isn’t surprising. “It’s all about Islam,” he says. “You can’t be against the Islamization of Europe, and, at the same time, support the Arabs in the Israel-Palestinian conflict.”
Ekeroth, who is himself Jewish and says he runs “the anti-Islam activities” of his party, believes that “Jews who fight us instead of their real enemy are digging their own graves.”
Strache, too, likes to play on history. In campaign literature, he is depicted in knight’s armor, promising a hot sausage to a blond, slingshot-wielding Austrian boy if he “hits that mustafa.” Kara Mustafa commanded the Muslim armies in the 1683 siege of Vienna—but, in today’s Austria, “mustafa” is more common as a derogatory epithet for any ethnic Turk.
Perhaps it was also his sense of humor—or history—that propelled Strache to wear what he did at Yad Vashem. Instead of covering his head with a kippah as a gesture of respect at the Hall of Remembrance, where the ashes of Holocaust victims are kept, Strache wore a Biertönnchen—the red, blue, and black cap that identifies him as a lifelong member of Vandalia, a right-wing student fraternity long associated with Pan-German nationalism and anti-Semitism.
Stadtkewitz, the German Freedom Party founder who was also part of the tour, says Strache was playing to Austrian TV cameras along for the ride. “It was a way for him to tell his followers, ‘Hey, look, this isn’t what it looks like,’?” he says
(Newsweek, February 27, 2011).
All Zionist Christians and Israel must take an official standpoint and change their opinion when it comes to approval of these neo-Nazi European politicians, who are using Israel to make their parties respectable to an unsuspecting public. "You have but one standpoint, until you take a new one" (Naser Khader).
How can populist parties embrace Israel, the only free democracy in the Middle East, to unite against a common threat; Islam, to promote their often racist anti-immigration policy – to attract Christian voters, when Israel has a 20% Arab Muslim minority that enjoys all the political, economic and religious rights and freedoms of citizenship including representation in the Israeli Parliament, compared to their Islamic neighbouring countries and North Africa; Israel is the best country to live in for non-Jews, women, children and minorities.
FrP leader Siv Jensen rejects common way of thinking; as Breivik
(ABC Nyheter, 26.07.2011). FrP is one of the parties with an anti-Islam / immigration policy, using Israel to attract Christian voters.
For these voters it would be better to return to the KrF. KrF: Government Choosing Side Against Israel: Means that Norway weakens its role in the work for peace (Vårt Land).
Liberals Blame Blogs Over Norway Massacre:
New York Times and a liberal blogger blame anti-Islamist blogs for influencing Anders Behring Breivik. Liberal publications are blaming anti-jihadist websites for the massacre of at least 76 Norwegians, saying that they influenced the killer, Anders Behring Breivik.
The New York Times’s Scott Shane published a piece that said the murderer was “deeply influenced by a small group of American bloggers and writers who have warned for years about the threat from Islam, lacing his 1,500-page manifesto with quotations from them.” It named blogs Jihad Watch, Gates of Vienna and Atlas Shrugs among others (INN, 26/07/11).
Despite the massive condemnation of the terror in Norway, there are some
radical right-wing European politicians, who openly support Anders Behring Breiviks ideas.
Jacques Coutela, called Breivik an "icon", and "the West's most important defender, he was suspended from National Front, France. Laurent Ozon (National Front, France), connects the terrorist attack to increased immigration.
Mario Borghezio, Liga North, Italy, boasted of Breivik's visions. "Many of his ideas are good, Many of them are brilliant. He sits in the EU-Parliament, and makes it clear that he doesn't support his use of violence. He likes Breiviks resistance against Islam.
Liga North is critical towards Islam and has several ministers in the Government of Berlusconi. "It is a shame for us all that a representative comes with justifications for one of the most terrible terrorist acts, says David Sassoli og Niccolo Rinaldi (left-wing).
Erik Hellsborn, Sweden Democrats, thinks Breivik's massacre is because of massive immigration, Islamism and a multicultural society. He is not shameful over his support of Breivik's goals. This is not something the Sweden Democrats is behind, Martin Kinnunen, spokesperson for Sweden Democrats, says
(ABC Nyheter, 27.07.2011).
Austrian politician excluded after terror statements.
Werner Köningshofer (The Austrian Freedom Party), is excluded after his statements after the terror attack in Norway, Heinz-Christian Strache says, leader of the party. Köningshofer made parallells between between the massacre in Norway and attacks performed by Islamists in Europe. The Freedom Party, which was leaded of Jörg Haider (dead), tries to change profile and distance themselves from former connections to neo-Nazi groups, says the news agency, Ritzau). (ABC Nyheter, 28.07.2011). British right-wing extremist, Paul Ray, think there will be more attacks like this, but not from Christian fundamentalists, as Behring Breivik was called (ABC, Nyheter, 29.07.2011).
the terror expert
is following the moves of the terror organization Al Qaida. He is bringing worrying statements posted on forums connected to Al Qaeda.
Despite strong evidence against the involvement of jihadi militants in yesterday's terror attack in Norway, AQ supporters remain gleeful. One such user on Al-Qaida's top-tier Shamukh web forum enthused, "Praise be to Allah for delivering these dark tidings to the crusaders." Another jihadi militant on the Shamukh forum urged comrades, "let us continue to rejoice regardless of who is ultimately found responsible."
A user on AQ's top-tier Shamukh forum who is suspected to be fighting with insurgents inside Afghanistan has posted a "threat to Norway." User "Amir Grozny": "To the Prime Minister of Norway: you have only moments to remove your soldiers from the graveyard of Khorasan or else." He warned that if Norway fails to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan soon, "you will see blood running in the streets."
Notorious online extremist Abu Suleiman al-Nasser has also now responded to reports of a possible terrorist attack in Oslo, Norway. : "Today, Norway was targeted in order to serve as a lesson and example for the rest of the nations of Europe." "We previously threatened more ops like the Battle of Stockholm and we demanded the European nations withdraw their armies." "As for the reasons to target Norway... most importantly her assistance in occupying Afghanistan and insults to our Prophet." "We say to them, comply with the demands of the mujahideen, for what you see is only the beginning and more is coming."
With the "Battle of Stockholm" Abu Suleiman is referring to previous threats against NATO. In his audio, Abu Sulaiman al-Nasser threatens, "I warned...you [should have] expected the fires of the battle to reach the heart of Europe.. The battle of Stockholm is the start of a new era in our jihad, when Europe will become the arena for our battles...Any [state] that chooses not to meet our demands, then it must await our attacks that will reach the heart of Europe.”
Islamic Council Appaled Over Terror:
General Secretary Mehtab Afsar of the Islamic Council Norway means that the terrorattacks confirm that evil can exist everywhere – independent of color or religion. We are standing together with our Christian brothers and sisters and know that these acts doesn’t have anything to do with Christendom. A person who executes such misdeeds have no religion says Afsar.
The General Secretary of the Islamic Council have noticed Anders Behring Breiviks attitudes and socalled manifesto, but think that the press should be utmost careful by giving him room for explaining and deepen his views. – He has a distorted and poisonous message, which he wants to promote in order to affect our harmonic and peaceful society. This he should not be allowed, taking into consideration the relatives, Afsar says. He means there is reason to ask oneself if the threat from rightwing extremists have been forgotten when it comes to the attention towards international terrorism (ABC Nyheter, 26.07.2011).
Leftist Press Try to Exonerate Muslim Radicals:
One must not forget that Muslims are still responsible for more attacks on Muslims, Christians, Jews, Indians, etc. (Doesn’t this have anything to do with Islam. Doesn’t a Jihad fighter have any religion?) And the carnage of one man is not equal to the threat posed by segments of the Muslim community. Islam inspired terrorism is the most deadly lethal threat to the world.
the General Secretary of the Islamic Council of Norway should first and foremost confront his own ”manifest” and Muslim terrorists elevating slaughter of civilians, innocent men, women and children, videotaping their slaughter -
religiously justified by countless Muslim clerics – posting it on the Internet for all to see, without regard to the victims or their relatives.

Memorial service, Norderhov Church, Sunday 24 July 2011, were he said among others: “Over in Tyrifjord lies the island of Utøya, today wrapped in tragedy, home to acts of terror, witness to society’s vulnerability and the fragility of life. But these young people went out to Utøya earlier this week with another vision and other dreams – of community, solidarity and antiracism.
The members of the Labour Youth League shine out with their belief in mankind. I spent Thursday with them. It was a day on Utøya just as a day on Utøya should be, with political debates, commitment, culture, football. Fun, but also the seriousness that characterises young people when they are seeking to take responsibility and make a difference.
These impressions are reflected in one of the finest texts we sing in the Labour movement: “To Youth” by Nordahl Grieg. “Make a stand,” we sing. That is precisely what the members of the Labour Youth League do, they make a stand. Today we are living with the painful fact that some are no longer with us to make a stand. We who are left behind must honour their memory and continue where they left off...”
Norway youths discussed Palestine prior to attack:
Forty-eight hours before Friday massacre, teens participating in ruling party youth camp met with Norwegian foreign minister. Some called for boycott of Israel
The teenagers who took part in Norway's ruling party youth camp in the island of Utoya met with Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere and demanded he recognize Palestine on Wednesday, two days before the
deadly terror attack
which left many of them dead.
Gahr Stoere told the youths that the Palestinians deserve a country of their own and that the occupation must end, Norwegian website Politisk reported. Several of the youths waved signs reading: "Boycott Israel." (Ynet News, 07.24.11).
Beck Compares Norway Victims to Hitler Youth: Media personality Glenn Beck set of a firestorm of criticism when he compared the Norway mass murder victims to "Hitler Youth."
Opening a seven-minute segment on the Premiere Radio Network's "The Glenn Beck Program," Beck described the attack "as a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like the Hitler Youth. Who does a camp for kids that's all about politics?”
Torbjørn Eriksen, the former press secretary to Norway’s prime minister, was not amused.
“Young political activists have gathered at Utoya for over 60 years to learn about and be part of democracy, the very opposite of what the Hitler Youth was about,” Eriksen told The Daily Telegraph. “Glenn Beck’s comments are ignorant, incorrect and extremely hurtful,” he added.
At least 85 people, some as young as 16, were killed in the second attack allegedly by Anders Behring Breivik at a summer camp that draws young members and children of the governing Labor Party (INN,

We will go on, take care of each other,and protect our democracy, our open society, human rights and the hopes of young people for a better world..."
Our young people are a source of hope. I myself think back on my memories from Utøya last Thursday, the day before this act of terrorism struck. Utøya then was as Utøya should be: an island filled with the commitment, joy and life of our young people, but also coloured by their seriousness as they stake out the course for the rest of their lives, determined to make a difference.”

Mansour was conducting a dress rehearsal for the expected vote over PA statehood set to take place at the United Nations in September, where it
faces a likely veto
by the United States.
Mansour told the council his people could not be held in waiting much longer.
“With international political and financial support, this plan has reached its objectives as acknowledged by the international community,” he said. “We have completed our responsibilities and are ready to govern ourselves." See 'A Stranger onn Earth'- 'Armed Struggle'
Mansour's comment comes as international observers express strong doubts over PA readiness for statehood due to
, its inability to form a
, and concerns over the inclusion of the
terror organization in its ranks.
“We cannot keep waiting for Israel to negotiate with good faith," Monsour added.
The PA has refused to attend peace-talks with Israel for two years instead preferring to place
that would prejudice talks and favor its maximalist position on its participation knowing such terms would be unacceptable to Israel (INN, 26/07/11).
Why Abbas Cannot Recognize Israel as a Jewish State:
Among the “Palestinian papers” released to the world via wikileaks, there is one called “
Talking Points on Recogntion
[sic] of Jewish State.”
In this paper
the Palestinian Authority spokesperson details the
reasons for not accepting
Israel as a Jewish state.
: “Recognizing the Jewish state implies recognition of a Jewish people and recognition of its right to self-determination….Those who assert this right also assert that the territory historically associated with this right of self-determination (i.e., the self-determination unit) is all of Historic Palestine. Therefore, recognition of the Jewish people and their right of self-determination may lend credence to the Jewish people’s claim to all of Historic Palestine.”
The core issue in the conflict: The issue of Israel’s existence as a Jewish State is the very core of the conflict. If Abbas, or any other Muslim leader for that matter, were to agree that Israel is a Jewish state, he would be in opposition to the Islamic religious concepts of “defense of Muslim lands” and of non-Muslims as dhimmi.
The Muslim religious apartheid ideology of the supremacy of Islam. If Abbas were to acknowledge that Israel is a Jewish state, then he would have acknowledged that Jews have the right to political self-determination and national self-realization, just what he claims for the Palestinians, and just what the Qur’anic concept of dhimmitude denies to Jews. Arab leaders don’t want to do that because that would strengthen the Israeli argument for Israel’s just demand of those same rights (FrontPage Magazin, July 26, 2011).
Over and over again PA leaders have stated that "no Jews will be accepted in a Palestinian state, and that no Israeli will be allowed to set a foot inside." Christians are harassed in Hamas ruled Gaza and in the PA/Fatah ruled areas in Judea and Samaria. Jews in Israel are harassed, stoned, shot and stabbed almost on daily basis by Arabs.
To boycott Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, and recognize a racist, Palestinian Apartheid state, that has little if any respect for human life, treats women as second class citizens and turns a blind eye to honor killings – doesn’t this fly in the face of everything the youths have been gathering to learn at Utoya for more than 60 years? – Democracy, equality before the law, anti-racism, human rights, etc.
A Return to the 1947 Partition Plan?
All of the Arab states voted against the UN Partition Plan - UN Resolution 181 on the partition of Palestine - that was adopted by the General Assembly on Nov. 29, 1947. Now, 64 years later, the Palestinians have second thoughts about their rejection of the plan. The UN Partition Plan unambiguously calls for the establishment of a Jewish state. This provision is contrary to the Palestinian Authority's stated position that it will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
The Partition Plan specifically states, "No discrimination of any kind shall be made between the inhabitants on the ground of race, religion, language or sex." "Arabs and Jews who...reside in Palestine...shall...become citizens of the state in which they are resident and enjoy full civil and political rights." Yet PA President Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly made it clear that there is no room for Jews in the future state called Palestine. UN Resolution 181 calls for the establishment of a special international regime for the City of Jerusalem, which it defines as including Bethlehem. Are the Palestinians really willing to give up Arab control of Bethlehem? (Winnipeg Jewish Review).
Norway Still Blames ‘Occupation” for Terror in Israel: Norway’s mass murderer acted out of anger at government policy, but Norway says reason for terror against Jews is Israel’s “occupation".
The terrorist attack in Norway has not changed the country’s views of terror in Israel, where the Norwegian ambassador to Israel blames the “occupation” for terror against Jews.
Ambassador Svein Serje, in an interview with the Hebrew-language Maariv newspaper, said he has sympathy for Israel’s terror victims but still maintains, "We Norwegians consider the occupation to be the cause of the terror against Israel. Those who believe this will not change their mind because of the attack in Oslo" (INN, 27/07/11).
Truth: "From the Spanish Inquisition to European pogroms, to the murder of 6 million Jews during the Holocaust, history proves that baseless hatred, terror and killings of Jews on a global scale existed long before the creation of the modern State of Israel. Anti Semitism is a historical phenomenon that existed and continues to exist regardless of Israel."
If a lie, no matter how outrageous, is repeated often enough it will eventually be accepted as truth (Josef Goebbels, Master of the Big Lie, Nazi propaganda chief):
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. 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.”
”In the name of the new ”freedom of speech” nobody in Norway from now on would dare to remind anybody that since 9/11-2001 the world have been exposed for more than
17.000 terror attacks
, almost everyone of them performed in the name of Allah. These facts (the truth) are no longer part of the

Norway’s Ambassador to Israel Defends Palestinian Terror After Oslo Massacre
Norway’s Ambassador to Israel told reporters that Norwegians consider “the occupation” to be the cause of the terror against Israel. “Palestinians, the ambassador told Maariv, “are doing this because of a defined goal that is related to the Israeli occupation. There are elements of revenge against Israel and hatred of Israel. To this you can add the religious element to their actions.” (Gateway Pundit, July 26, 2011).

Israeli Government Video Irks Palestinians

What we are now seeing and experiencing in Norway is a very deep sense of unity among the population. The greatest testament to this, is the quote by Helle Gannestad which became so known; "If one man can show this much hate, how much love can we show together?"
The next step is the rebuilding, of broken hearts, rebuilding our people, our nation - all people, the world, who were/is divided by a meaningless hate, with boundless love.
One of the things that united the multicultural youth at Utoya was their hatred for Israel. It is also this hate, antisemittism, that unite all the other nations of the world.

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a stone of burden for all the peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded; and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem" (Zech. 12:3,9).
The Bible is filled with prophesies regarding the destruction of the nations at the end of days.
Joel 4:1-2 "For behold, in those days and in that time when I return the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations and I will take them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat (Valley of Decision), and I will contend with them there concerning My people and My heritage, Israel, which they scattered among the nations, and My land they divided." May we all reach the right conclusions, before we destroy ourselves and the whole world.
Palestinians set date for mass demonstrations: Palestinian officials said Monday they plan to begin mass marches against Israel's occupation of the West Bank on Sept. 20, the eve of a largely symbolic U.N. vote expected to recognize their independence.
Palestinian official Yasser Abed Rabbo said leaders hope to attract millions, and the protest will be the first of a prolonged effort. He said the campaign would be called "Palestine 194," since the Palestinians hope to become the 194th member of the United Nations.
"The appeal to the U.N. is a battle for all Palestinians, and in order to succeed, it needs millions to pour into streets," he said (AP, Forbes, 08.01.11).
Israel Ready to Discuss Border "Package": No Return to the 1967 Lines
: Israel has told Middle East power brokers it was ready to discuss a proposed package on borders with Palestinians to help Western powers revive stalled peace talks, an Israeli official said Monday. The official denied reports that Prime Minister Netanyahu had agreed to President Obama's proposal to negotiate a pullback to the 1967 lines.
Israel Radio and Channel 2 television reported that Netanyahu had agreed to negotiate a possible withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines. The Israeli official responded that Netanyahu "has been clear that Israel will not return to the 4th of June 1967 borders." "In order to...facilitate the restarting of direct talks, Israel has been willing to accept a package that includes a formula on borders," the official said, adding that "a part of the package would mean being recognized as a Jewish state." (Reuters, ).
PM Netanyahu should not bow to Obama's demands, like the President of the US bowed down to the Saudi king's demands.

Palestinian society abuses its children, teaching them to hate and kill themselves to kill others:
A criminal Palestinian Arab leadership, along with cowardly and intimidated Palestinian parents on the West Bank and Gaza, exploit their children to engage in armed conflict - in opposition to values held by the rest of the civilized world and in flagrant violation of international law and common decency. See also: Western Funding: UN, Europe, Norway, USA, World Bank funds terror and hate promotion (Palwatch).
There is no excuse – nor any widespread precedent among the wretched of the earth - for sacrificing the youth of any society for political gain and tactical advantage. If this is to stop, the culpability must be put squarely on the shoulders of Palestinian society and others who legitimize, support and ‘understand’ such child sacrifice.

Gaza Summer Camps Include Political Indoctrination
: In June-August 2011, nearly 50,000 children and adolescents took part in Hamas-run summer camps in Gaza, as they do every year. In addition to social activities, the camps offered Quran lessons, indoctrination with Hamas' political ideology, and paramilitary training. The core values are radical Islam, "the liberation of Palestine," jihad, and death for the sake of Allah.
The older children use real rifles in paramilitary training, which also includes hand-to-hand combat. At the summer camp graduation ceremony in Al-Zeitoun on July 29, teenagers in military uniform reenacted the abduction of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit and blew up a cardboard model of an Israeli tank.

The Kurdish Connection to a Palestinian State
On July 15, the Kurdish leadership in Turkey declared the establishment of a democratic Kurdish autonomy in southeastern Turkey, with its capital in Diyarbakir. Some 850 Kurdish politicians and leaders convened in Diyarbakir to declare the democratic autonomy's formation, including 30 Kurds who are Turkish parliamentarians.
If the two million Palestinians in Judea and Samaria deserve a state, why shouldn't there be a state for the 18 million Kurds, who were discriminated against and exploited in the past 100 years? We can now understand the dilemma faced by Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey, which all have Kurdish minorities, over the notion of a unilaterally declared Palestinian state. (Ynet News, 08.03.11).
Obama: 'Lone wolf' terror attack biggest concern: "The risk that we're especially concerned over right now is the lone wolf terrorist, somebody with a single weapon being able to carry out wide-scale massacres of the sort that we saw in Norway recently," he said. "You know, when you've got one person who is deranged or driven by a hateful ideology, they can do a lot of damage,.. (AP, Newser, Aug 16, 2011).
Right now, the Iranian ideology combined with nuclear terrorism is the greatest threat and should be of biggest concern for all.
Mr Obama's absolute failure is to focus on solving the Arab Palestinian-Israel conflict as the key to stop the Iranian"nuclear train which has no brake and no reverse gear." Both Egypt’s Aboul Gheit and Jordan's King Abdullah II have threatened that the international community will pay the price if Israel/PA talks and the establishment of a PA state fail.
"The Palestinian recognition train has already left the station and is heading toward New York," Erekat said ('Erekat denies Palestinian plans to delay bid for UN recognition,' Haaretz, Aug 9,11).
“Western people should understand the Iranian ideology to impose a new caliphate over all the world. They call it Nation of Islam. They perceive the West is a threat to their ideology, to their culture, and they believe that they'll be able to defeat the West and impose their new government by means of terrorism.
“They have preferred to use proxies to deal with the West and with Israel as they work to undermine the moderate regimes and dominate the Middle East. If they dominate the oil, they will try to export the Iranian revolution—the Iranian ideology—to Europe and to other Western countries with terrorism. It is exporting ideology by force” (Moshe Ya'alon, the Vice Prime Minister of Israel).
“You could hide a small nuclear device in a bale of marijuana and smuggle it across the border. There are all sorts of ways to get across our borders—both our northern and southern borders. The amount of nuclear material you need for a bomb is twenty-five to thirty-five pounds—about the size of a volleyball or maybe a basketball. Assembling a bomb itself is fairly easy to do, unfortunately.
Iran could also utilize what's called a 'Scud in a bucket.' A Scud is a short-range missile that could be equipped with a nuclear warhead and launched from a tramp steamer within one hundred miles of New York City. These people hate us for what we are. They have a passionate belief that they are the instruments of Allah's will; that infidels deserve at best to be put into a subservient position, and in many cases killed” (Former CIA Director James Woolsey).
