Jews are from Judea

Michael Lumish

Jews represent about .02 percent of the world population and about 1.5 percent of the population of the United States. And, yet, we actually have representatives in the US Congress who think that Jews are illegally "occupying" Judea.

These people -- including Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota), Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) -- are racist antisemitic anti-Zionists who have found comfortable homes for themselves within the Democratic Party.

It must be understood that Arabs are from the Arabian Peninsula and that Jews are from Judea, otherwise known as Israel.

It was not the Jews that conquered almost the entire Middle East and North Africa.

It was the Arabs who did so. And one of the amazing things about the Arab-Muslim imperial conquests is that they have actually managed to convince the guilt-ridden "white" people of Europe and America that Arabs are indigenous to other peoples' lands.

Forget the Copts and the Kurds and the Yazidis and the Bahai and the Jews.

It all belongs to the Arabs who are currently engaged in a wild genocide of the Christians, who even Euro Christians, including the Pope, simply do not care about.

In truth, the Jews of the Middle East (i.e. Jewish Israelis) are going to defend themselves whether you like it or not.

And if you favor BDS then throw away your fucking cell-phone... you amazing hypocrites.

    “Under the Trump administration,
    the United States argued that UNRWA
    [United Nations Relief and Works
    Agency for Palestine Refugees]
    has perpetuated, rather than helped,
    end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,
    by extending refugee status to
    the children, grandchildren and
    great-grandchildren of those who
    fled Israel during the establishment
    of the Jewish state in 1948.”

    Tuvia Tenenbom [a secular Israeli author] said:

    “Outside of the Orthodox community, where Jews are proud to be Jews, and are observing Jewish Law...

    In state-after-state, temple-after-temple, what I saw and what I witnessed was a nightmare:

    You see [non-Orthodox] Rabbis, so-called Rabbis, leaders, supposedly leaders, standing at a podium, and all they can tell to their listeners, is that Israel is an apartheid state, and that Judaism is racist.

    That is what they preach, over and over and over and over again...”

  2. Cornelius Tacticus, the famous Roman historian
    who lived from year 56 CE (approximately)
    to year 120 CE said:

    “Much of Judea is thickly studded with
    villages, and the Jews have towns as well.

    Their capital is Jerusalem.

    Here stood their Temple with its boundless riches.”

    The Western World (page 141)
    by Pearson Custom Publishing, 2009 CE

    The Histories by Tacitus,
    The Jews (Book 5), paragraph 8 of 13.

    NOTE: Remember this when people
    attempt to deny that Jews lived in the Holy Land.
    Remember this when people attempt to deny
    that there was a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.


    “The Romans took over Judea in
    [year] 63 BC [Before the Common Era].”

    Notice that the Romans took over Judea
    in 63 BC – JUDEA, not Palestine!

  3. Hi Michael Lumish ! I'm glad you dropped in!

    I saw something on FB last night which I found quite disturbing. It was a post or ad informing me that two people I barely know, actually, a couple of musician acquaintances, one here in FL and the other in NJ, recommend "If Americans Knew."
    Is anyone here familiar with that website? Check it out.

    Here's what it says underneath "If Americans Knew," "What every American needs to know about Israel/Palestine". That's quite a claim, isn't it? Remember, you only need to know what it tells you. I guess it's all the news that's fit print.

    It's an anti-Israel propaganda site run by someone named Alison Weir. Take a glance at it and I think you will quickly notice the antisemitism emanating from the screen. You'll immediately be greeted with an ad for Alison Weir's book, "Against Our Better Judgment: The hidden story of how the U.S. was used to create Israel."
    One of the reviews says, "If you never read another book, read this one." -Daily Kos Diaries - well, of course it's the only book they ever want you read. duh. Can one imagine this being the only thing someone has read? What would that person be like?

    Ms. Weir's organization also has 501(c)3 tax-exempt status. Tax free antisemitism. Many of her articles just happen to show up at "The Unz Review." Yes, that same Ron Unz, and the same Unz Review from which Valerie Plame found out how it's the Jews behind all the wars.

    The ADL has a PDF concerning Alison Weir.

    Back to the two musicians: the one here in FL I met once when I first moved here, we exchanged business cards and FB invitations. The one in NJ I met a couple times some years ago. He is of Jewish heritage and touts his super left wing creds on FB. He is much more intellectually advanced and awesome than you or I.
    I found this endorsement for this antisemitism disguised as criticism of Israel incredibly disturbing because the veneer is so damned thin.

    1. Allison Weir is your typical stereotypical anti semite who even the JVP broke with for her conspiracy type work. She is popular with the conspiracy crowd: USS Liberty, Organ Harvesting, Jews pushing US into WW1, etc. So she appeals to outright Nazis and the conspiracy bent types. In another life she would be lunching with Hitler and gleefully accepting invitations to observe the Final Solution personally.

    2. Things are heating up, you guys... as I am sure you have noticed.

      I have to retreat from FB. It's a waste of time and it is helping to ruin my writing.

  4. Maybe we should stop using the Latin name, and use the Hebrew one instead: Yehudah. That should clear things up for the historically-challenged.

    1. Indigenous names are Filastin and al-Quds. The reason there is no Jerusalem in the Holy Qu'ran, is it's a made up colonizer name.

    2. Jerusalem is named numerous times in the Jewish bible. It was called Urusalim before that. It is hardly a colonizer name. By the way, colonizers owe allegiance to a foreign power. The Jews of Israel don't owe allegiance to any power other than Israel.

  5. Ancient Roman writers and other writers mention Jews but NOT Palestinians or the like. That should tell anyone smarter than a rock something. But it often doesn't. And that should tell us something. Something that rhymes with Mew Bate.

  6. I agree. My point is that Arabs are defined by their language, not by their ethnicity. Saying all Americans are from England because they speak English or all Mexicans are from Spain because they speak Spanish would be just as silly.

  7. It seems that "Arab" is a loaded word also. Nabateans are "Arab", but all their inscriptions are in the same Western Aramaic contemporary Jews used. Palmyra is "Arab" in the same way. Mesopotamian Hatra was a capital of an "Arab kingdom of Araba", Wikipedia lists it's name in Hatran Aramaic only.
    I wonder where are all the Arabic inscriptions, and if there are none, why the conjecture that these people spoke Arabic?
    You've probably heard of Maalula Aramaic, the last vestige of Aramaic spoken in Syria. Check out their script. Syria is now trying to replace it with something else, as it looks too much like Zionist characters.

  8. Again on my FB feed another ad from the same antisemitic 501(c)3 site with the same purported recommendation from the same two fatuous idiots.

    And Joseph wants to tell us about "Palestinian DNA," as if there has ever been as such a unique nationality or people either culturally or genetically, i.e., race, (Heil Arafat! and grab your calipers!). Joseph, as so many other somewhat well-intentioned "progressive" Jews help spread the Palestiniast message which always comes down to some slightly disguised way of asserting an unassailable history for that which never was, namely the Palestinians, and make it more authentic than that of the Jews'. I have heard this DNA crap before where it is stated that there is this quintessential palestinian man whose DNA is even more "at one with the land" than the Jews. It is always the same shit! It is always to assert the "Palestinians" as the "true" people of the land and the Jews' claims as illegitimate and the Jew as imposters. This was Tlaib's actual message tucked into her "I take comfort" remarks over the holocaust, to name but one example amongst thousands in a repetition campaign worthy of Goebbels.
    I want to know how to get FB from removing this vile group from my feed, and complain that it is a hate group, since Zuckerberg claims to care about such things and has committed to policing.

    1. Correction: I want to know how to get FB to remove this vileness from my feed. A little to much quick editing on my part made it sound as if I want to stop them from getting rid of it.

    2. Also, for fans of Sargon of Akkad, here's a good take down of the German left and a little lesson on the Germans vs. the English speaking world. As a former student of German and liberal, I highly recommend it. It also puts me in mind for Woody Allen's reasons for making the film "Zelig."

  9. Joseph said:

    "There are many very good arguments
    for Israel as a Jewish homeland."

    my response:

    Those people who carefully read my comments on this blog will receive -- for free -- very good arguments for Israel as a Jewish homeland, and very good arguments for Israel in general.

    If half the people who visit this blog would copy my quotes, and save them on their computers, and send them to friends, and repost them on their web sites and FaceBook & Twitter pages, then many people could be reached, and my true quotes could combat the false lies that the media tells about Israel.

    I spend lots of time collecting and typing those quotes, but I need YOUR HELP to distribute them to as many people as possible.

  10. Joseph said:

    "Jerusalem is named numerous
    times in the Jewish bible".

    my response:

    Jerusalem is mentioned over 600 times in the Jewish Bible, also known as the Hebrew Bible or the OT (Only Testament).

    I know that because [thank and praise G*D] I possess computer software that searches the entire Jewish Bible for a specific word, and then automatically counts the number of matches, which in this case, is approximately 650.

  11. Veteran News Reporter Matti Friedman said:

    “The big players in the news business practice groupthink…”

    “Many of the people deciding what you will read and see from here [Israel] view their role not as explanatory but as political. Coverage is a weapon to be placed at the disposal of the side they like.”

    SUMMARY: This article exposes intentional anti-Israel bias in the news media.
    It is still VERY relevant, even though it was written in 2014.

  12. Ahhh, the Palestinians are up to it again spreading the narrative of oppression for dupes to swallow and then lecture about morality.

    1. The reason the word "Pallywood," was invented. The Palestinians have been such liars one really should assume everything they say is a lie until it is proved definitively to be true. Kinda like the MSM Dem operatives news in the US.

  13. Saudi journalist Fahad al-Shammari
    declared [in a television interview] that:

    “the Palestinians are beggars,” and “have no honor”.

  14. "My point is that Arabs are defined by their language, not by their ethnicity."
    Rather simplistic and not altogether true.

  15. Here's another component to that language thing: Arabic, of course.

  16. What do we think is the main reason for the quite undeserved success of the Israel-hater amongst the xenophile intelligentsia?

  17. Pretty good!
    But here's the funny thing. Mike's piece is called "Jews are from Judea." Joseph writes that this is not a good reason for a Jewish homeland, amongst all the alleged good reasons he never states - reminds me a little of J Street.
    Instead he defers to "Palestinian DNA" as a reason for 'something'. I think of the Palestinians as totally indigenous to Palestine - well, I mean except for the language...and the culture...and the majority religion...I don't really care that much of their "indigenous" population comes from all over creation. I do care that they represent themselves as THE indigenous people of a name Europeans imposed on our land, and portray the Jews, who are the only extant indigenous ancient people in that land as imposters with no history there and push antisemitic tropes ad nauseam which gullible hipsters simply ignore for the sake of their own social status amongst the deeply shallow. There are many good reasons NOT to have a "Palestinian" state, and that's just one of them.

  19. Greenfield takes on identity politics, a poison to us all.

    When what we have (e.g., the ability to publicly and freely disparage the government in the harshest terms, without retribution) is gone, and all that attaches, we will look back at our stupidity, particularly the progressives that ushered in the new reality.

    The tribalism of identity politics is an anachronism, a step backward, not to mention it is inconsistent with globalism. So what's it going to be? Can a progressive answer that anomoly?

    The nation-state is not perfect, but it is the best vehicle created by humans to prosper and achieve a good life, especially when based on American political ideals of individual self-determination.

  20. The UN and EU are mad because Israel has approved the construction of more than 2,300 housing units for Judea and Samaria communities. Here's the thing. They are mad at Israel when it DOESN'T do such things, heck with 'em. They're gonna be mad anyway.

    1. Perhaps they should hold negotiation. What do the EU and UN have to offer?

    2. Around year 1980, a Rabbi who was born in New York City and later made aliyah and became a member of Knesset, said that the United Nations ALWAYS hates Israel, no matter what Israel does, so it is logical for Israel to do what it needs to do, and ignore the hate of the United Nations.

  22. "Rashida Tlaib's grandmother" - a new epithet is born. Right up there with "your father's moustache" and "your mother wears army shoes."

  23. Jeff, it is unclear to me what you mean by "xenophile intelligentsia."

  24. Onetime Miss Iraq clashes with Rep. Omar after saying lawmaker doesn't represent her as Muslim

    This is what it takes to beat the scourge. If only she had equally mentioned the ones that glam on to the Omars and Tlaibs, but should be ashamed by these haters.

    1. " She [Ilhan Omar]is not running in elections as a muslim, but as an American for a district." So says Abby Zabby on Twitter. Is Abby drinking lobotomy juice?
