10,000 Year-Old House Uncovered Outside Jerusalem

 

 

 

” A remarkable archaeological find in the Judean lowlands southwest of Jerusalem includes a six-millennia-old cultic temple and a 10,000-year-old house.

  The ancient sites were located in routine archaeological digs conducted ahead of a planned expansion of Route 38, the main access road to Beit Shemesh. The building is the oldest ever found in the area, and constitutes remarkable “evidence of man’s transition to permanent dwellings,” researchers said Monday.

  Labeling it “a fascinating glimpse into thousands of years of human development,” the Israel Antiquities Authority, together with the Netivei Israel Company that is carrying out the highway expansion, invited the public to visit the excavation site in Eshtaol on Wednesday, November 27.”

    As more and more archaeological finds are unearthed in and around Jerusalem in particular and Israel in general imagine the loss to human knowledge and understanding that will occur if the careless actions of our government allow the Iranians to turn Israel into a sheet of glass .

Remarkable 3,000-year-old Subterranean Tunnels Discovered in Jerusalem

 

 

” Archaeologists were digging in the ancient Ophel area near Temple Mount when they discovered a cave filled with loads of dirt and rock.  After removing piles of rubble, they were astounded to find that the cave appeared to link to a system of tunnels, which were clearly man-made – the walls were layered in plaster, chisel marks could still be seen carved into the rock, and holes where candles would have been replaced, still showing burn marks on the rock, had remained intact. The cave also appeared to be linked to a structure featuring water channels dating to the First Temple period, which suggest that at one point in time, the tunnels may have formed part of an ancient water cistern which would have served Jerusalem’s royalty for collecting and storing water. But that was not all it was used for.

Evidence of use as a passageway for people associated with the period of time just following Herod the Great was also found.  Archaeologists discovered that some walls had been constructed after the cistern had lost its use for water and were high enough and large enough to move individuals from one location to another.”

Obama Quotes Alinsky In Speech To Young Israelis

 

 

 

” In his address in Jerusalem today, President Obama channeled Saul Alinsky, citing the radical community organizer’s defining mantra as he urged young Israelis to “create change” to nudge their leadership to act.

Obama told a crowd of college students at Jerusalem’s main convention center that Israel “has the wisdom to see the world as it is, but also the courage to see the world as it should be.”

One of Alinsky’s major themes was working with the world as it “is” to turn it into the world as “it should be.”

In his defining work, “Rules for Radicals,” which he dedicated to “the first rebel,” Lucifer, Alinsky used those words to lay out his main agenda. He asserted radical change must be brought about by working within a system instead of attacking it from the outside.

“It is necessary to begin where the world is if we are going to change it to what we think it should be. That means working in the system,” wrote Alinsky. “

 

 

 

Backup Presidential Limo On Its Way For Obama In Israel After Fuel Filling Failure

 

 

 

 

” One of the limousines in Barack Obama‘s fleet has broken after reports that it was mistakenly filled with the wrong fuel at the start of the US president’s visit to Israel.

Another limo is on its way from Jordan, according to Ma’an News agency, citing Israel’s Channel 10, to replace one that was filled with diesel instead of gasolene.

Ma’an reports:

Hebrew-language websites described the malfunctioning limo, brought from Washington specially for the visit, as the first unforseen incident during Obama’s three-day visit to the region.

Obama is scheduled to leave the airport to Jerusalem in a helicopter. A parade of Black Hawk helicopters will follow the presidential helicopter carrying his delegation.”

 

 

 

   Gee , a private flight for a limousine … how much will that add to the debt ? Does any competence exist in this administration ?

There’s a metaphor in this so mewhere … a failed presidential ride for a failed presidential visit … for a failed presidential foreign policy … for a failed presidency … We’re sure the failure analogies could continue for a few more paragraphs pages .

   On the other hand , he certainly doesn’t need a limo to visit a city that his own White House map says doesn’t exist ...

 

 

 

White House Map ‘Erases’ Jerusalem, Biblical Territories

 

 

 

White_House_Israel_Map

” The White House has released what it says is a map of Israel. The only problem is that Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights are missing.

An Obama administration video highlighting the president’s plans for his Mideast trip depicts Jerusalem, the Golan and the West Bank – also known as Judea and Samaria – as non-Israeli territory.

The Washington Free Beacon, which first reported the discrepancies, noted the video shows the Golan Heights as part of Syria; Jerusalem is depicted as part of the West Bank; and northern Israel is shown as part of Lebanon.”

 

 

 

 

More Of The Fruits Of Our ” Smart Diplomacy “

 

 

” With all the fighting going on, sometimes it’s important to take a step back and look behind the scenes.  One of the most curious aspects about this current conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians is the fact that Hamas has been able to acquire highly sophisticated rockets.  In earlier conflicts, these rockets were never able to penetrate as deeply into the Israeli countryside …but in this case, Hamas has been able to strike Tel Aviv and Jerusalem with telling consistency.  The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The Israeli Defense Forces’ (IDF) principal objective in Gaza is to rid Palestinian terrorists of sophisticated Iranian-produced rockets that are capable of striking deep into Israel’s heartland, including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. “

“tempest in a teapot ”

A Dagger in Jerusalem “

  “What an illuminating moment on CBS This Morning, as Senator Schumer puts a dagger through the heart (to use his favorite expression) of Jerusalem. He is being interviewed on the decision of the Democratic Party to remove from its platform this year language it had four years ago asserting that Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel. He is asked why the step was taken. Mr. Schumer dodges the question by asserting that “everyone knows” the “vast, overwhelming majority” of Democrats are for Jerusalem being the undivided capital of Israel. He calls it a “tempest in a teapot.” He then confesses he doesn’t know why it’s no longer in the party platform.”

 

  He does indeed know why . it’s because the extreme left wing of the party has been taken over by anti-semites and the extreme left wing is calling the shots thanks to an extreme left wing president . 

 

  “Charlie Rose doesn’t let him off, asking him several times what is the president’s position. Mr. Schumer tries another dodge, saying the president is for a “very, very strong” Israel. But what is the president’s position on Jerusalem as the capital? persists Mr. Rose. Mr. Schumer tries to get Mr. Rose to believe that Mr. Schumer doesn’t know the president’s position. Mr. Rose will have none of it. “You know what his position is, don’t you,” he says. “No, I don’t,” Mr. Schumer claims. “You don’t know?” Mr. Rose asks in disbelief.  “You’ve never asked him to support Jerusalem as the capital of Israel?” Says Mr. Schumer: “I’ve always assumed . . . “ Mr. Rose is still voicing incredulity at the end of the clip.”

 

As a Jew Chuck Schumer should be ashamed of himself . As Jews in general should be ashamed of the totally unwarranted support they offer the party of hatred and devisiveness .

 

 

” Wasserman Schultz calls Jerusalem omission from platform a ‘technical error’ “

  “Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) explained the exclusion of language recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in the 2012 Democratic national platform as a “technical error” that had not been discussed at all during the drafting process. 

“Essentially, with Jerusalem, it was a technical omission and nothing more than that,” Wasserman Schultz said Thursday on CNN. “There was never any discussion or debate commentary over adding or subtracting it.” “

 

   Debbie , Debbie , Debbie… We’ve seen the video of the floor vote . After three attempts to reach a two thirds majority vote it was called in favor of including Jerusalem and God in your platform but the voice vote was in no way a conclusive majority , hence the booing from your delegates on the announcement that the motion had passed. 

  You need to remember that thanks to AlGore we can fact-check your a.. with impunity . You resemble “Baghdad Bob” more with each passing day .
