    Israel’s second president Yitzhak Ben-Zvi was a scholar who wrote the book, The Peoples of Our Land in 1932. In it, he states that west of the Jordan River, 277 villages and sites—almost two-thirds of all sites—had names that were similar to or the same as Jewish villages in these locations during Second Temple times.

    Moreover, one-quarter of the 584 Arab localities in Israel and beyond the Green Line have ancient biblical names. For example, Sakhnin was a Jewish town during the Talmudic era, and Beit Lechem is the Hebrew name for the biblical city of Bethlehem (“Ancient Place Names in Israel” by Daniela Santus in Proceedings of the Conference, The Cultural Turn in Geography, 18-20th of September 2003–Gorizia Campus, Part II: Landscape Construction and Cultural Identity).

    Hebron (Arabic: al-Khalil; Hebrew: Chevron, which means “friend”) in the Judean Mountains is the second-largest city under Palestinian Arab control after Gaza, and it is one of the four Jewish holy cities (the others being Jerusalem, Tzfat and Tiberias). Most significantly, it contains Judaism’s second most holy site, the Cave of Machpelah, purchased by Abraham. It is here that Judaism’s Patriarchs and three of its Matriarchs are buried. (JewishVirtuallibrary.org). Another large Palestinian Arab city, Nablus, whose Hebrew name is Shechem, is derived from the Greek, Neopolis.

    Other examples of Arab towns with names derived from the Hebrew Bible: Beit Jalla is the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo, Jenin was Ein Ganim, Silwan was Shiloach, Selum was Shilo (one of the first capitals of ancient Israel), Tequa is Tekoa (the Prophet Amos’s hometown), Anatawas Anatot (the Prophet Jeremiah’s hometown), Batir was Beitar, Beitinwas Beit El (as named by Jacob himself), Jaba was Geva, Mukhmas is Michmash (King Saul’s fortress) and El-Jib was Giv’on (where the sun stood still).

    According to Tsvi Misinai, author of Brother Shall Not Lift Sword Against Brother, many of the Arab villages and towns in the area have names that are not only not Arabic, but also rarely appear in other Arab lands. Among such names are Kafr Yasif, Kafr Kana, Kafr Yatta, Kafr Manda, Kaft Samia and others.

    A closer examination reveals an additional irony: Most Arab countries bordering Israel derive their names from the Hebrew Bible. Lebanon, Levanon, means “white” in Hebrew, referring to the snow cover of the surrounding mountains. Syria, Siryon, in the Bible is the alternate name for Mount Hermon. Jordan/River Jordan (Yarden in Hebrew) takes its name from the Israelite tribe of Dan and means “descends from Dan.” Gaza, Azza in Hebrew, is mentioned in Genesis and the book of Judges with the Samson narrative.

    So, to counter those who attempt to disassociate the Jews from the Land of Israel and claim that they are interlopers and colonizers, the proof is also in the pudding: the names. Use this information to make the media, academia and politicians be honest, accurate and accountable.

    On February 1, 2019, several days after International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Osama Al-Alfi, a former deputy editor of the Egyptian government daily Al-Ahramand now a columnist for the daily, published a column titled "The Truth about the Holocaust." Citing several Holocaust deniers, he claimed the Holocaust was a deception used by the Zionist movement to take over Palestine as the starting point of its plan to take over the world's resources and politics. He added that the Zionists have managed to "intimidate all the champions of the truth" through persecution and lawsuits.

    The Religious should convince us with the "force of Prayer" not the force of Arms.

    In the Shadow of the "Status Quo", land preserves in Area C are being stolen away

    The Sovereignty Movement's warnings about Israel's lack of action because of the absence of sovereignty and in light of what is happening in Area C in the shadow of the "status quo" have received more concerning confirmation: The Palestinian Authority is extending its jurisdiction over preserves in Area C, an area where it has no authority, and erases Jewish history of archaeological sites from its internet site. This was reported by the newspaper Israel Hayom (Feb. 19, 2019).

    Thus, for example, the Palestinian Authority recently placed a large sign on the Nahal Arugot Preserve in east Gush Etzion, declaring the place to be the nature preserve "Al-Kanub". The sign names the European Union and the UN as sponsors. And this phenomenon is occurring in other nature preserves in Judea and Samaria.

    [​IMG]

    At the same time, in an internet site called "Mahmiyat" ("Preserves" in Arabic) established by the PA, there is an interactive map detailing interesting archaeological sites to visit in Judea and Samaria. The archaeological sites contain historical information about the site but the Jewish-biblical historical name of the sites is almost entirely omitted.

    Thus, for example, on the internet page for the city of Sebastiya (Shomron), which was the capital city of the Kingdom of Israel for approximately two hundred years, and where the palace of King Ahab is located, there is no mention of this fact. It also says that in the archaeological internet site, one can read about the Old City, the Temple of Augustus, the Church of St. John, a Roman theater and forum and more. The reference to the observation point from Har Grizim does not relate at all to the connection between the Samaritans and the People of Israel; it only mentions that the Samaritans were an ethnic minority close to Judaism.

    The newspaper quotes the words of the Regavim coordinator of activities for the area of Judea and Samaria, Yishai Hemo: "It is totally clear that this is not an innocent attempt to conserve nature and the environment, but a totally political and cynical act by the Palestinian Authority, and the proof is that the preserves that are located within the area of the Palestinian Authority suffer endless harm to the environment, quarries, illegal building, polluted landfills and more".

    " Our Jewish history is not only one of persecution, oppression and fear. We also have a rich history of resistance and solidarity. Jews have survived in diaspora for thousands of years, largely through solidarity with other oppressed groups. We do not need to support Israel at all costs to stay safe."


    Really? Jews have been largely safe in the Diaspora because of solidarity with other oppressed groups?

    Can IfNotNow name a single time in 2000 years that a pogrom or massacre was averted because of some other oppressed group sticking their necks out to save the Jews?

    Code Name: "The Awakening of the Gate of Mercy" - the most severe crisis since the metal detectors affair

    The Jerusalem police arrested Sheikh Abd al-'Azim Salhab, chairman of the new Islamic Waqf council, and Sheikh Najah, the deputy head of the Waqf administration on the Temple Mount.

    Last Friday, in a well-organized operation of the new Islamic Waqf Council, which was shared by Jordan and the PA, which was dubbed the "Awakening of the Gate of Mercy" (Al-Rahma Arabic), thousands of Muslim worshipers took over the Temple of Mercy on the Temple Mount, The Palestinian flag on its roof and held a mass prayer after it had been closed for the last 16 years.

    According to a report on Al-Jazeera, the head of the new Waqf Council Sheikh Abd al-'Azim Salhab, Mufti Muhammad Hussein, Adnan al-Husseini, the minister of Jerusalem affairs in the PA, and Fatah chief Hatem Abd al-Qader physically led the thousands of worshipers to the Sha'ar HaRachamim Friday at the Temple Mount.

    The Islamic Waqf Council began cleaning work at the Sha'ar HaRachamim compound after prayers and the council head Sheikh Salhab announced that the building would remain open to the worshipers and that the council would begin renovations to turn the building into a large prayer house.

    According to Waqf officials, the decision was made at the first meeting Of the new council on February 14, the council members even visited the site and were impressed by what was happening on the ground. One of the reasons for the decision was that Israel should be preceded by a desire to build a synagogue there.

    Israel preferred not to confront the thousands of worshipers. The Jerusalem Police evacuated the police station on the roof of the Sha'ar HaRachamim building last Thursday. Police held preventive arrests in East Jerusalem of about 60 activists on the Temple Mount, but the arrests did not prevent the takeover of the Gate of Mercy.

    The Palestinians see the takeover of the Temple Gate as another important achievement, after the victory over the crisis of placing the magnumeters at the gates of the Temple Mount in July 2017. In the campaign for control of the Temple Mount and East Jerusalem ahead of the publication of President Trump's "Deal of the Century"

    An editorial in the Jerusalem-based Al-Quds newspaper on February 23 defined the campaign on the Gate of Mercy as "another honorable chapter in Palestinian history of struggle and steadfastness."

    The Palestinian takeover of the the Gate of Mercy structure is reminiscent of the takeover of the Temple Mount by the northern branch of the Islamic Movement headed by Sheikh Ra'ed Salah on the Temple Mount in 1996, which was renovated and turned into a large mosque. The Palestinian takeover of the Sha'ar HaRachamim building constitutes a change in the status quo that has existed on the Temple Mount in recent years, in a unilateral step coordinated between Jordan and the PA, contrary to Israel's position.

    A new leadership for East Jerusalem residents
    According to senior Fatah figures, one of the goals of the establishment of the new expanded Islamic Waqf Council, in cooperation with PA and Fatah representatives, was a direct lesson from the events of the crisis of placing magnumometers at the Temple Mount gates in July 2017. The Islamic Waqf representatives, The city without the involvement of the PA.

    The closure of the Orient House building and the East Jerusalem Chamber of Commerce have created a vacuum over the past few years under the leadership of residents of East Jerusalem. Israel's ban on PA activity in East Jerusalem and the measures taken against Adnan Ghait, governor of the new Jerusalem district on behalf of the PA, increased the vacuum that the new Islamic Waqf Council, which enjoys the support of the royal palace in Jordan and the leadership of the PA, has now stepped in.

    Hatem Abd al-Qader, a Fatah activist and a member of the new council, told Al-Agial radio station on February 23 that the new council has a new strategic plan to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem. It has many properties in the Old City and houses thousands of houses And it will also fight the phenomenon of home sales to Jews.

    According to Fatah sources, the Israeli government will find it difficult to fight the new council, which is supported by Jordan and the PA, since according to an agreement Peace with Jordan Since 1994, the Jordanians have a special status of Custodian of the Holy Places in Jerusalem. However, the unilateral opening of the Gate of Mercy by force in violation of the court order without coordination with Israel constitutes a serious breach of the peace treaty between Jordan and Israel and a breach of the agreement Oslo.

    Strengthening the principle of "popular resistance" Senior Fatah officials view the Palestinian takeover of the Temple Mount Gate as another success of the popular resistance strategy advocated by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in recent years, namely, widespread popular activity against Israel without the use of firearms. The Islamic Waqf Council adopted the same method as the one used by the police on the Temple Mount in July 2017. It drove thousands of Muslim worshipers to the Gate of Mercy and took control of it, believing that the Jerusalem police would not dare confront them in the Temple Mount compound because of the international implications of such a move. Mustafa Barghouti, secretary-general of the Palestinian Initiative, said that the recent events "are proof of the strength of the popular resistance that must be strengthened and extended to all of Palestine." The Palestinians are now waiting to see the response of the Israeli government to their takeover of the Sha'ar HaRachamim compound, which is a serious blow to Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount. If Israel does not respond appropriately, this will be considered weakness and this has important implications for the continuation of the struggle for control over the Temple Mount and East Jerusalem President Trump's "Deal of the Century".

    Arabs continue destroying Jewish archeology on the Temple Mount
    While Israel preserves Al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock, Arabs have proven that they cannot be trusted to respect Jewish Holy sites.

    On February 22, 2019 Arutz Sheva reported “Hundreds of Arabs arriving for Friday prayers breached the Golden Gate and entered the site." Palestinian Arabs clashed with Israeli police on Jerusalem's Temple Mount, trying to force their way into an area that has been closed for 16 years. The incident follows a similar confrontation the same week.

    The area near the Gate of Mercy, or Golden Gate, was sealed by Israeli authorities in 2003 and it has been kept closed to stop illegal construction work there by the Waqf, which Israeli officials believe has led to the destruction of antiquities from periods of Jewish presence in the area.”

    The Arabs shouted incitement against Jews and breached the area…”

    On February 19, 2019 Lenny Ben David tweeted "… Clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police recently took place around the Bab al-Rahma - a large structure inside the Golden Gate that police closed off in 2003 and that the Islamic Waqf wants reopened. According to Jewish tradition, Sha'ar HaRachamim is the gate through which the Messiah will come… ."

    "A rare photo from 1900 from the Library of Congress, captioned 'Interior of Golden Gate,' shows a room with massive columns. The gate dates back to the 7th-8th century CE and was built over an earlier gate. A photo shows the top of the arch of the earlier gate...What's inside the sealed gates between the walls? Rare picture I found circa 1900 suggests that the room and/or columns date back to the Temple. No wonder, the Wakf wants to build a mosque there between the walls..."

    See pictures of the Golden Gate (1900) from the Library of Congress in the links below…


    The reason why the Golden Gate was sealed by Israeli authorities in 2003 was because the Islamic Waqf was destroying Jewish Archeological remains in Temple Mount as described and documented below.
