Q. Do you feel it's appropriate in a democracy to send in 100 policemen to kick people out of their homes
A. We had to do it to reassure the public ... that the police are actually capable of doing something.
Saudi Man Answers Questions on Why He Loves Israel
I know there are deep haters of Facebook, and I do not blame them. There is much to worry about regarding the dangers of uploading information about yourself to the world. But a few months ago, I gave in and opened up a Facebook account for professional reasons. While FACEBOOK definitely has it's minuses, on the plus side, I must admit it has opened up many doors for me to meet people which I would probably never have had a chance to connect with before.
I am very much aware and understand that people can present themselves over the internet in any way they please. People can, and often do, use fake names, lie about their age, gender, location, use false pictures, etc... So enough said about the internet, Facebook, social media, the pros and cons, etc.
One FB friend I made, calls himself.... well, I cannot say. I must be discreet. However, he does let me say that he is from Saudi Arabia and is now residing in some Western country. I asked if I could interview him on the radio. At first he said he would think about it, but afterwards, he said he wouldn't feel safe doing so and asked me instead to send him some questions to answer by text. So here goes, a few questions I jotted down for him to answer, which I thought you might like to read, from a 'cousin' of ours.
|א וַיְהִי, אַחֲרֵי מוֹת מֹשֶׁה--עֶבֶד יְהוָה; וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-יְהוֹשֻׁעַ בִּן-נוּן, מְשָׁרֵת מֹשֶׁה לֵאמֹר.||1 Now it came to pass after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, that the LORD spoke unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying:|
|ב מֹשֶׁה עַבְדִּי, מֵת; וְעַתָּה קוּם עֲבֹר אֶת-הַיַּרְדֵּן הַזֶּה, אַתָּה וְכָל-הָעָם הַזֶּה, אֶל-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי נֹתֵן לָהֶם לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.||2 'Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.|
|ג כָּל-מָקוֹם, אֲשֶׁר תִּדְרֹךְ כַּף-רַגְלְכֶם בּוֹ--לָכֶם נְתַתִּיו: כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבַּרְתִּי, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה.||3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, to you have I given it, as I spoke unto Moses.|
And an email I received which you might also like to be a part of:
As the 9th of Av quickly approaches, as the mourning over the loss of the Temple and the divine service intensifies over the next several days, many hearts are open to act. This is the time to begin breaking the silence that has clouded the ongoing systemic suppression of Jewish rights on the Temple Mount.
We would like to see the petition rise to a minimum of 10,000 signatures by Sunday the 10th of Av. This year the fast is pushed from the 9th to the 10th in honor of the Sabbath. Fasting is prohibited on the Sabbath with Yom Kippur being the exception.
PLEASE URGE EVERYONE TO SIGN AND FORWARD THE DECLARATION!
By using email, facebook, twitter, message boards, news sites and more - we together can break the silence!
The Declaration can be signed at:
Be sure to also join and to invite your friends to the facebook event (already 4,300+ invites and 200+ attending/signers)

Betsy, a listener wrote in a very interesting question to my weekly guest, former Islamic terrorist, Walid Shoebat, on “Everything You Wanted to Know About Arabs But Were Afraid to Ask”. Betsy asked,
"Hi, This is a two part question (because I'm not sure about the answer to the 1st part). One, where did the philistines come from? I thought they were not from Abraham. Two: if the Palestinians insist they are the philistines, doesn't that shoot a giant hole in their claim to the Land and their religion as well? "
Philistines or Arabs? You can't have it both ways.
But such support causes a major problem to the faith of anyone who supports such a claim be it Christian or Muslim. Hadrian replaced the shrines of the Jewish Temple and the Sepulcher in Jerusalem with temples to pagan deities. Hadrian was an enemy of the Bible, so the question should be, if we support Hadrian’s changing the name to Palestine, why then not support his other changes, and keep the names to the holy places giving these pagan names? Again, you can’t have it both ways.
(This is a re-post of a blog I wrote back in 2007 around the time of the Annapolis peace talks. However, I believe it is still pertinent today, and I talked about this on my most recent radio show.)
This is where I live, this is where my house is, this is where my children were born and raised. This is where my ancestors lived. This is the region that G-d gave to the 12 tribes of Israel. They want to cut our heart out, wrest Jerusalem from us, and make it into a Palestinian state. Dig down in the earth here, you will find JEWISH, not Arab artifacts. This is where Jewish Kings ruled. There were never any 'Palestinian' kings, and a country of 'Palestine' never existed. Palestine was the Jewish Homeland. My father was a 'Palestinian'. Most Arabs came in to this 'Jewish' region looking for work as more and more Jews came home and joined their brothers who were here for centuries. These Arabs would be insulted if they were called, 'Palestinians' which meant JEW. They were either Egyptians, or southern Syrians.There was never even an Arab Palestinian currency in all these centuries. The REGION known as Palestine was part of the Ottoman Empire (1299 to 1922) and therefore used TURKISH currency. When the British came in after WWI, they made the Land of Israel the ‘British Mandate of Palestine’, and the Egyptian pound was used until 1927. Egyptians swarmed into Israel for jobs, as the Arabs living in Gaza do today, crossing into Israel where they earn higher wages.
Though my father is not in this photo, here is a picture of Palestinian Jewish Parachutists in World War II.
The British then made what is called, the Palestinian pound, which was of course equal in value to the British pound sterling.
Did you skip over reading all those peace plans and summits? No fair. Read them each, and concentrate on them. We bled and paid a high price for each one of those 'solutions for peace'.
The corrupt Palestinian Authority has forfeited its right to exist. It has encouraged, born, fostered, and sponsored terrorism. It has violated it's commitments it made in every peace treaty signed, which was to stop their violence and terror. We should mete out justice to those Arab terrorists and leaders who have spilled our people’s blood, to those Arab leaders who hold our soldiers captive, and to all the Arab and Moslem nations who conspire against us with threats of annihilation.
We should also bring to justice any of our own leaders (whom I shall not name here) who have become corrupted, accepted bribes, armed our enemies, and released convicted terrorists. To these politicians who have sold themselves out, well, as an acquaintance of mine says, “They give ‘working girls’ a bad name. The Knesset today is the biggest brothel in Israel.”
