  • The 1967 Six-Day War (What really happened)

    The 1967 Six-Day War by Mitchell Bard -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Israel consistently expressed a desire to negotiate with its neighbors. In an address to the UN General Assembly on October 10, 1960, Foreign Minister Golda Meir challenged Arab leaders to meet with Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion to negotiate a peace settlement. Nasser answered on October 15, saying that Israel was trying to deceive world opinion, and reiterating that his country would never recognize the Jewish State.(1) The Arabs were equally adamant in their refusal to negotiate a separate settlement for the refugees. As Nasser told the United Arab Republic National Assembly March...

    Organization. The Jordan Armed Forces were under King Hussein while the Palestine Liberation Organization was under the leadership of Yasser Arafat. The conflict was at its peak between September 16 and 27, 1970. There was, however, some tension and aggression up to July 1971. The Black September was brewed by the Palestinians presence and aggression in Jordan.
  • The truth about the Yom Kippur war, Nixon and Kissinger

    10/14/2016 10:17:30 AM PDT · by mainestategop · 43 replies
    This month marks the 43rd anniversary of the Yom Kippur War. We have been fed some false information about this war. For starters, Israel did not strike first unlike in the 1967 Six day war when Israel was forced to launch a pre-emptive strike as her enemies amassed on her borders and as the UN stood aside and allowed them to do so. The Arabs shot first  On the night of September 25, King Hussein secretly flew to Tel Aviv to warn Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir of an impending Syrian attack. Throughout September, Israel received eleven more warnings...

    The Six Day War Remembered A reflection on the "what-might-have-beens. " June 7, 2016 Joseph Puder    This May, Israel celebrated its 68th year of independent statehood. On June 5th, Israel commemorated the 49th anniversary of the Six Day War, in which it liberated the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old city, including the Western Wall.  The Etzion Bloc, Jewish property seized by Jordan’s Arab Legion and held for 19 years was also liberated.  The proverbial Israeli “David” of the pre-1967 years has been transformed by the international press and western academia into the post-1967 “Goliath.”  In the process, Israel...

    On a dusty hill in the suburbs of Amman, the capital of Jordan, I visited the late King Hussein's magnificent automobile collection, opened to the public as a museum. Amid rows of gleaming motorcycles, I passed a brightly-coloured Japanese racer and a low-riding American chopper, and my eyes fell on one dark model that stood behind them. This, a placard told me, was a Brough Superior, British-made and once common in Jordan as a motorcycle used for military purposes. Jordan is an island of peace and stability in a sea of turmoil. There is almost nowhere in the region that...

    It should go without saying that love and pride of country should be the first qualifications for anyone seeking the presidency of America. President Barack Hussein Obama came into the power of the White House as an activist—pushed by activists. Foreboding for the future of America, Obama will always be an activist. He doesn’t know what else to be because he’s always been an activist. Even as an Illinois senator, he merely wore the title without doing any of the heavy lifting.

    An internet petition is calling upon Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to take action to prevent the release of the Jordanian who cold-bloodedly gunned down seven Jewish schoolgirls at Naharayim in 1997. A total of 110 out of 150 members of the lower house of Jordan's parliament signed a petition to free Ahmed Musa Dakamsa, who is serving a life sentence for the multiple murders. The Jordanian justice minister, too, has voiced support for releasing Dakamsa, calling him "a hero." The families of the murdered girls have asked the public to assist them in preventing the release of Dakamsa. On March...

    It feels strange visiting a country like Morocco and listening to people extol the virtues of a political system my country waged a revolution against. Morocco has a king, and he’s a real one too, not some kind of a figurehead. But I went there, I listened, and after almost ten years of visiting Middle Eastern countries wracked by tyranny, terrorism, botched revolutions, and wars, I was perhaps a bit more willing to hear what they had to say than I might have been a decade ago. A monarchy is a tough sell for Americans. The founders of our country...
  • Moshe Zar: PA Land ‘Ownership’ often Meaningless

    Palestinian Authority Arabs’ claims to land in Judea and Samaria are often meaningless, says Moshe Zar, one of the main land salesmen in the region. The reason goes back to King Hussein’s distribution of land decades ago, he said. “Hussain wanted to compensate the Palestinian families whose relatives he had murdered, so he gave them free land,” Zar told Arutz Sheva. “In reality, the distribution of land cannot be considered to be in effect, because it does not match the conditions on the ground.” The land was given out randomly by drawing lines on a map, he explained, and many...

    Obama is attending a fundraiser on the West Side today -- and millions of people will spend two extra hours in their cars as a result President Obama is scheduled to land at LAX at about 2:45 P.M. Thursday. He then has to get to the Sony lot for a 4:30 fund-raising appearance, then up to Tavern in Brentwood for dinner and another fundraiser. He's staying overnight in the L.A. area -- they don't announce where, but at least some of the previous overnights have been at the Beverly Hilton. The city is advising that the traffic impacts should extend...

    You don't have to be prejudiced against Islam to believe, as many Americans do, that the area around Ground Zero is a sacred place. But sadly, in an election season, such sentiments have been stoked into a political issue. As the debate has grown more heated, Park51, as the proposed Muslim cultural center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero is called, has become a litmus test for everything from private-property rights to religious tolerance. But it is plain that many of Park51's opponents are motivated by deep-seated Islamophobia. [....] Although the American strain of Islamophobia lacks some of the...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — The Democratic National Committee released a sharply-worded statement Tuesday accusing Republicans of colluding with "K Street Lobbyists" to incite "angry mobs" of extremists to disrupt health care town halls in congressional districts around the country. Full statement as released by DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse: The Republicans and their allied groups – desperate after losing two consecutive elections and every major policy fight on Capitol Hill – are inciting angry mobs of a small number of rabid right wing extremists funded by K Street Lobbyists to disrupt thoughtful discussions about the future of health care in America taking...

    REMEMBERING THE 'SEPTEMBER BLOOD TRAIL' ANOTHER ISLAMIC PALESTINIAN "CONTRIBUTION" TO (against) HUMANITY In September three jetliners-- one American, one British and one Swiss-- were hijacked by Palestinian Arabs to Jordan. The passengers were held hostage. This action further undermined the sovereignty of King Hussein's government. The King decided to take action and fighting broke out between the Jordanian Army and the Palestine Liberation Organization. The Syrians attempted to intervene on the side of the P.L.O. but Israel warned that they, too, would then intervene. The Jordanian army defeated the P.L.O. whose forces fled to Lebanon. Black September, The PLO's...

    Jordan's King Hussein sent a secret message to President Richard Nixon in 1970 pleading with him to attack Syria, according to declassified documents released Wednesday by the former president's library. President Nixon works at his desk in the Oval Office in a June 1972 photograph. The papers are among about 10,000 documents released by the Nixon Presidential Library, some of which offer harbingers of present-day events, such as concerns about terrorism and Saudi Arabia. Library director Timothy Naftali said the documents describe challenges such as how to get the Saudis more involved in solving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, how to get...
