The Jews know how to play mind games with the goyim.
Christian evangelicals are eating this up.
Israel’s moral claim to land comes from the Bible and not Google, Israeli Communications Minister Tzahi HaNegbi said in Washington this week, at an event supporting placing the West Bank settlements within the final borders of the Jewish state.
“Defense is important and security is important but the most important thing is the moral claim of Israel. We are committed to go forward with living in our ancient land, land that was given us not by Google and Wikipedia, but by the Bible,” Hanegbi said.
He spoke on Tuesday at an event hosted by the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea and Samaria to mark the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War, titled “Celebrate 50 years of rejuvenation in Judea and Samaria.”
It was held near the venue of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual policy conference, so that it could attract those attending the conference.
The settler’s council said it was the first they time they had held a concurrent event in Washington specifically targeting the AIPAC attendees. It is part of the council’s growing focus on soliciting support abroad for the settlements, both in the United States and the European Union.
Housing and Construction Minister Yoav Gallant (Kulanu) said that “for us Judea and Samaria is Israel.”
He added that continued Israeli control of Area C of the West Bank was existentially necessary for Israel.
“There is no way that Israel can exist” without the Jordan Valley and the mountaintops of Samaria, he said.
“Of course,” he said, “it is difficult to have a strong Jerusalem without [the settlements of] Givat Ze’ev, Ma’aleh Adumim and Gush Etzion and all these places.”
Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely said there were three quick arguments for placing Area C of the West Bank within Israel’s borders, all of which centered around the word “just” and which mentioned Israel’s victory in the Six Day War.
“It was a just war. It is a just defense. But the most important one, it was based on a just claim. A just claim of the Jewish people on (the Biblical areas of] Beit El, Shechem, Jerusalem and Hebron,” Hotovely said.
“Let me tell you something, if those places are not Jewish, who can tell me that (the modern cities of) Herzliya, Rechovot, Rishon LeZion and Tel Aviv are Jewish,” Hotovely said.
“I always say that the occupation is a myth, because we never occupied other people’s land. This is Jewish land (Judea and Samaria). This should forever be a Jewish land under Israeli law,” said Hotovely.
Area C of the West Bank is outside the boundaries of sovereign Israel, but is under IDF military and civilian rule. The Palestinians believe that it is part of their future state. The Israeli politicians spoke out as the Trump Administration is in the midst of attempting to break the three-year deadlock on the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians.
I noted in the comments at JPost that someone claimed that the Jews broke their covenant with God and were to be dispersed.
Forgive me for saying this, but is the Bible the best source of information about Jews and their claims to this or that?
