Global March to Jerusalem
by Donna Wasson
3/16/2012 / Politics
Come on everybody, pack a picnic lunch, grab your honey and don't forget the sunscreen 'cause ya'll are invited to participate in the Global March to Jerusalem, to be held on March 30th! This event hopes to draw at least 1 million Arabs and their supporters to march on and attempt to infiltrate Israel's borders as well as demand freedom for Palestine and its capital, Jerusalem. What a party it promises to be!
Organized on the sly by Iran and approved by its supreme leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, this fun filled event is being presented as part of a new strategy designed to increase regional unity against the 'Zionist occupation of Jerusalem', and is based on the 'Resistance Axis', made up of Syria and various terrorists organizations, used as proxies by Iran. Apparently Iran is too shy to support this publically.
One Iranian website, believed to be directly connected to the regime, even wants to include the kids in the festivities! There will be a cartoon contest in support of the March with the theme: the "right of return" of the Arab refugees. There will be three winners, each receiving a prize of $1000, a trophy and a t-shirt emblazoned with a large photo of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's smiling, excessively bearded face.
Vendor stalls will be set up along the March's route and will feature the latest in burqua fashions, plus a variety of roasted meats in pita bread, including goat, lamb, camel and lizard. Slaughter small livestock just for fun or pick out commemorative bullet shells from previous skirmishes with the evil Israeli soldiers. Once the sun sets, you can expect major fireworks displays back and forth across the border in unspecified locations but you may want the kids inside for those.
Of course, when we put the hype for this March for Palestinian 'justice' aside, we find the entire premise for this inane gathering is based on the Islamic predilection for rewriting history to suit their purposes and to slant the public opinion of ignorant masses to support their causes. Here is the little known fact regarding their obsession over Jerusalem: until Israel liberated Eastern Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War, Muslims hardly ever gave Jerusalem a second glance. AH-HA! You didn't know that, did you?
Jerusalem was occupied by the Arab and Islamic Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan from 1949-1967. However, during this time, the King of Saudi Arabia and PLO leader Yassar Arafat NEVER once visited the city and never felt the need to go to the Temple Mount and pray at the hideously tacky Dome of the Rock mosque. NOT ONCE. Hmm, interesting, huh?
Remember the snot nosed little jerk bully on the playground who didn't want their piece of candy until you started eating it; then they went to their mommy, hysterically crying that you 'stole' their candy and then everyone thought you were the bad kid? The snotty brat's name is Palestinian. Jerusalem is only important to Muslims because they know it is sacred to their age old enemies, the Jews and Christians, and has been since the days of King David from 1010 BC- 970 BC.
The city of Jerusalem is spoken of 669 times in the Jewish Bible. It is NOT mentioned even once in the Quran or in any Islamic prayers. The wonderfully imaginative prophet, Muhammad NEVER visited the city and the mosque wasn't built on the site of the two previous Jewish temples, until 682 AD.
Calpih Suleiman Abd al-Malik had the mosque built as an alternative 'holy' site for Muslims because some guy named Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr rebelled against the Islamic rulers in Damascus by conquering Mecca and denied Muslim pilgrims entry into the city to complete the hajj. The Caliph went on to build the city of Ramia in 705 AD and his homeys ruled the region from therenot Jerusalem.
Dr. Mordechai Kedar explained the TRUE history of Islam's interest in Jerusalem in a 2008 article in Yediot Ahronot.
"The Caliph named the mosque 'al-Aqsa' or 'the further mosque' where Muhammad supposedly prayed; this was done as a political move in response to al-Zubayr's rebellion and his control over Mecca. Islamic tradition tells us that al-Aqsa is actually near Mecca on the Arabian Peninsula. This was stated in a book by the Muslim historian and geographer, al-Waqidi in 'Kitab al-Maghazi.'
According to this historian, there were two places where Muhammad prayed in al-Gi'irranah, a village between Mecca and Ta'if. One was the 'closer' mosque (al-masjid al-adna) and the other was the 'further' mosque (al-masjid as-aqsa)."
The Islamic historian al-Waqidi's description above, which is supported by several authorities (isnad), was not 'convenient' (politically correct) for the Islamic propaganda of the 7th Century because Mecca wasn't available. So, the Caliphs of the Ummayad dynasty started inventing several 'traditions' to establish the value of Jerusalem to Islam, which would justify a pilgrimage to the city like they previously traveled to Mecca.
The 'futher mosque', al-Aqsa, actually located near Mecca, was magically transported to Jerusalem and the Dome of the Rock mosque was built, sitting on the Temple Mount ever since like a magnificent peristaltic prominence.
When Israel was reestablished as a sovereign state on May 14, 1948, they were naturally eager to reclaim their most venerated Holy site, the Temple Mount. Again, Muslims paid little to no attention whatsoever to Jerusalem until Israel regained East Jerusalem in 1967. THEN, all of Islam lost their collective minds and suddenly decided the city and mosque was the third 'holiest' Islamic site, simply because of their insipid, ancient hatred of Jews and Christians. Just like the snotty kid on the jungle-gym who never learned to play nice.
Today, most of the Western world, including certain politicians in Washington, D.C and, I am horrified to say, a majority in the mainstream church, are ignorant of the true history of the city and are happy to buy into the never ending schmorgesborg of Islamic lies regarding the God given, Promised Land of Israel in general, and Jerusalem in particular.
The Bible tells us in Zechariah 12:3 that in the last days, God will, "make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it." If that doesn't show where we are on God's prophetic clock, I don't know what would!
This verse applies to everyone who tries to force Israel to give up their land and, especially those who demand they give up rights to and control of Jerusalem, The City of David, Jehovah's beloved city. Hear that Obama?
The Arabs can march, parade, protest, scream, yell, throw rocks, fire rockets, wiggle their behinds and invent politically correct lies, but Jerusalem will NEVER belong to anyone but Israel again. Don't believe me? Go ahead, try to take it.really, go ahead! I dare you!
