"Day of Solidarity" Should Be "Day of Demise for UN"

I have received a very disturbing e-mail, and I am going to post the whole thing here for everyone to read. They light is the best disinfectant. Let us hope so.

For the UN, at least, Israel has already ceased to exist! Earlier this month, the United Nations held a "Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.” Would it surprise you to know that central to the festivities was a map of “Palestine”...with Israel literally erased from the map? The irony is that Israel has been a member of the UN for 56 years!

The map, tagged “map of Palestine” was prominently displayed between the UN flags and the PLO flag. Not only does the map have the Arabic word for “Palestine” at the top, and not only does it NOT include Israel, it does not even have the partition line sanctioned by the UN General Assembly to denote a Jewish state alongside an Arab state.

Those present were asked to stand to observe a moment of silence with the master of ceremonies offering this invitation: I invite every one present to rise and observe a minute of silence in memory of all those who have given their lives for the cause of the Palestinian people. According to one observer, “It was a moment...crafted to include the commemoration of suicide-bombers.”

Please sign our petition to President Bush today. Ask him not to continue the policies that allow terrorist attacks against our staunchest Middle East ally, Israel.
Following that blatant disregard for Israel and the Jewish people, Iran’s fanatical new president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for the state of Israel to be moved to Europe. He reiterated his October call for Israel to “be wiped off the map” by opining that the Jewish state was a “tumor.”

In Saudi Arabia for a meeting of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, the Iranian hardliner ranted: “Is it not true that European countries insist that they committed a Jewish genocide? They say Hitler burned millions of Jews in furnaces...and exiled them.”

In an interview with Iran television, Ahmadinejad stated: “Now that you believe the Jews were oppressed, why should the Palestinian Muslims have to pay the price? Why did you come to give a piece of Islamic land and the territory of the Palestinian people to them?”

Calling upon the Europeans, Ahmadinejad continued: “You oppressed them, so give a part of Europe to the Zionist regime so they can establish any government they want...So Germany and Austria, come and give one, two or any number of your provinces to the regime.”

The Iranian leader made his comments during a conference in Mecca titled: “A World without Zionists.” “The establishment of the State of Israel was an offensive move. The Islamic nation will not let its historic enemy live in its midst,” he said.

Please sign the petition today asking President Bush to halt U.S. government policies that endanger Israel and the Jewish people.

It should not surprise you to know that Iran refuses to recognize Israel, and Iranian media frequently interview those who attempt to prove that the number of Jews killed in the Holocaust was wildly exaggerated.

And we must note that the very day Ahmadinejad made his fiery comments, a suicide bomber murdered five people in the Israeli town of Hadera. Was this foremost on the Iranian’s mind when he vowed, “There is no doubt that the new wave [of attacks] in Palestine will wipe off this stigma [Israel] from the face of the Islamic world.”

The goal of Hamas as stated in its charter is to “raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine.” Muslim Brotherhood founder Hasan Al-Banna has stated: “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”

From 1993 to 2005, Hamas has launched 113 suicide attacks against the Jewish people in Israel. It is difficult to understand why some Western politicians continue to call for Hamas to be included in the Palestinian Authority’s political long as they abandon their violent tactics? Now that’s a new one...peaceful obliteration!

After you have signed the petition to President Bush, please forward it to everyone on your list. Ask them to sign it and keep it going around the world.

Your ambassador to Jerusalem,

Mike Evans

P. S. Thank you for remembering the Jerusalem Prayer Team this last month of the year, and during the Christmas Season.
