Arabs reacted furiously to U.S. Republican Presidential Candidate Newt Gingrich as the former House Speaker dared to tell the truth—the Arab Palestinian is a myth!
Gingrich’s comments don’t agree with the Arab revisionist version of history.
Let’s call the Arab propaganda machine what it is…the ethnic cleansing of history, or in less politically correct terms, historic genocide.

I've had a bunch of responses to this video. Some were on the Arutz Sheva blog, some on Youtube, and others by e-mail.
Please note that comments posted through Youtube, I do not upload to the Arutz Sheva and vice versa. When comments are sent to my e-mail, I assume the writers do not want their e-mails published. Needless to say, I censor any comments sent to Youtube with foul, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate language. Though, I want to be clear (doesn’t President Obama always say that?), I do not censor opinions that are different than my own.
The very reason I upload these videos is to open discussions and to educate about Jewish legal rights and the facts of law and history as they relate to the Jewish National Home. When people claim
In one response below, an anonymous writer wrote, "keep up the great work and hope this video goes viral !!!" The readers of this blog and the Youtube viewership is only a small fraction of those who see my programs, as they are also broadcast on TV, satellite, and cable TV twice weekly. However, in order to have these videos go viral, it will take an effort of those who support the content of the videos. Let's face it, the blogs on Arutz Sheva are not up on top with the headlines. So, feel free to tell all your friends and families, send then the links, and by all means please start calling the Arab lies "the ethnic cleansing of Jewish history" or "historical genocide." Let's not let Hillary Clinton convert our "Jewish National Home" into a "Judenrein National Home."
Let me hear if you have any ideas.
Construction of the new bridge to the Temple Mount is frozen because of the fear of a violent response by the Arabs. Jewish Rights to pray or even offer the Korban Pesach (Passover Offering) is not being allowed under Israeli Law, as ruled by the High Court of Justice, because of what the High Court ruled is greater political concerns ("political" is used in the ruling).
Israeli Law is clear—anyone who prevents free access to religious sites or prevents the exercise of free worship is subject to a prison sentence of 5-6 years. Does the High Court have a right to rule that a law does not need to be enforced, thus allowing religious rights to be violated?
Here is the law:
Protection of Holy Places Law 5727 (1967)*
b. Whosoever does anything likely to violate the freedom of access of the members of the different religions to the places sacred to them or their feelings with regard to those places shall be liable to imprisonment for a term of five years.
5. This Law shall come into force on the date of its adoption by the Knesset.
SHNEUR ZALMAN SHAZAR
* Adopted by the Knesset on 27 June 1967
Excerpt from the March 2010 High Court ruling:
"Indeed, the basic starting point is that every Jew has the right to the Temple Mount and pray there… However, these rights are not absolute and (authorities) can limit their implementation taking into account public interest… In light of the centrality and importance of the Temple Mount to many other religions, too, the danger arising from a flare up of violence is not only a local threat… what is happening on the Temple Mount affects political considerations and foreign relations of the state.”

The continued witch-hunt against the Rabbinic authorities and nationalist camp is once again on the rise. Is incitement really a threat or an excuse to silence certain opinions?
Every year Israel’s leaders praise the greatness of this date. It was on this date the United Nations General Assembly passed resolution 181, calling for the partition of Palestine. However, there is nothing about this resolution to celebrate…
