An Inconvenient Truth: Jerusalem is a Hebrew (not an Arabic) word, the Arabs call it “Al-Quds”
by Ezequiel Doiny
The word Jerusalem comes from the Hebrew “Yir-Hu-Shalaim” (City of Peace) founded by King David as described in the Bible.
The Arabs call it “Al-Quds” because they don’t speak hebrew and need to rename it in Arabic. Many other cities that the Arabs claim also have Hebrew names: Hebron (described in the Bible as the city where the Jewish Patriarcs Abraham, Itzac and Yaakov (but not the Muslim Prophet Muhammad) are buried), Belem (from the Hebrew “Bait Lehem”, house of bread))
How can the Arabs claim the city of Jerusalem if they can’t even say it’s name ? (they call it Al-Quds!)
The name “Judaism” comes from “Judea”, the name of the Kingdom that was located where today is the West Bank named after “Judah” one of the sons of the Jewish Patriarch Jacob.
The Jews have the right to live in East and West Jerusalem. The same way it would be racist to say Arabs cannot live in West Jerusalem, it is racist to say Jews cannot live in East Jerusalem from where they were expelled through ethnic cleansing in 1948 by the Jordanian Arab Legion and to where they returned in 1967.
Today the Arabs want to expell the Jews from their homeland again as they did in 1948. They want to rename the Hebrew name Jerusalem to the Arabic Al-Quds as they renamed the Greek name Constantinople to the Arabic Istambul, where they expelled most of the Greek Christians through ethnic cleansing, where they converted hundreds of Churches to Mosques, including Hagia Sophia, now a museum where christians are not allowed to pray.
Jerusalem has always been the only spiritual capital of the Jewish People. The spiritual capital of the Arabs is Mecca. Jews face Jerusalem when they pray around the World. Muslims face Mecca, even when they pray in or around Jerusalem.
The UNSC’s imposition of an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank would enable Hamas to take power. Hamas will then smuggle weapons from Jordan and attack Israel with missiles as it does from Gaza. The Palestinian Media Watch translated an interview by one of Hamas founders Mahmoud al-Zahar to the Palestinian newspaper Al-Ayyam in which he said “transfer what it has [in Gaza] or just a small part of it to the West Bank, we would be able to settle the battle of the ‘final promise [to destroy Israel] with a speed that no one can imagine…[Some] have said Hamas wants to create an Islamic emirate in Gaza. We won’t do that, but we will build an Islamic state in Palestine, all of Palestine…”
The Jewish Homeland is surrounded by 22 Muslim Tyrannies, why do they need another one? There is only one Jewish Nation smaller than New Jersey. Israel is the only safe haven for Jewish refugees expelled from Islamic Countries. The same way that the Yazidi deserve a safe haven from Islamic murderers, so do the Jews. The creation of a Palestinian State in the West Bank would enable the only Jewish State.
Instead of forcing the creation of another Muslim State in the West Bank that would endanger the only Jewish State, the UNSC should acknowledge that the Palestinians already have a State in Jordan. “Palestine and Jordan are one…” said King Abdullah in 1948. “The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan,”said King Hussein of Jordan. Jordan was created in land from British Mandate Palestine, most of the Jordanian population is Palestinian.
