The Islamic Winter Blows into Jerusalem

Democracy does not have to allow jihad to be waged against it, even if this jihad uses means that appear to be legal.

Fourth, since the “Arab Spring” – which Qatar funded and promoted in many ways – is seen as a blood bath whose victims are Arabs and Muslims, Qatar must atone for its sins by using some of its resources against the ultimate historical rival, which is Judaism, and specifically, Israel.

Fifth, the fact that the president of the United States takes a conciliatory approach toward the Palestinians and their Arab brothers, means that there is a significant chance that the present administration will be sympathetic to the Palestinian, Arab and Islamic demands regarding Jerusalem.

Sixth, within the Arab and Muslim world there is an almost unanimous consensus that sees Jerusalem as Islamic property. This consensus allows Qatar to lead in a matter that almost everyone agrees upon, for a change.

Seventh, the battle for Jerusalem is almost the only thing that all of the Palestinian streams agree on, and therefore it can be used as the basis for reunification of Fatah and Hamas.

Eighth, in Israel there are more than a few “bleeding hearts” who think that giving up Jerusalem will appease the Arabs and Muslims and after that, they will let Israel live in peace. They call for “compromise”, meaning that Israel should give up East Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount, and Qatar can depend on them too in the struggle against Israel in this matter.

A BILLION DOLLARS is a very large amount and Qatar can do many things with it, all of which are allowed according to Israeli law, including purchasing property and preventing others from purchasing property, establishing civil social organizations and Islamic and general “charity” institutions; supporting activities relating to keeping Jews away from the Temple Mount and “maintaining” the Wakf, increasing the media coverage of al-Jazeera – the jihadi channel of Qatar -in Jerusalem, in order to renew awareness of “the occupation” after the events of the “Arab Spring” displaced it from the center of the world’s attention; funding lawsuits of individuals for property or cancel the city’s development plans; for international activities for increasing awareness of the Israeli “occupation” in Jerusalem, and many many more.

Some of these activities are happening already! It’s important to note that Qatar is capable of streaming money into Israel by way of funds, companies and organizations that act legally in Europe or the United States, and it is extremely difficult in a democratic country like Israel to put a stop to the flow of these monies and to stop the activity that is funded by them. It could be that the Israeli legislature will have to use the Basic Law on Jerusalem in order to widen the authorities of the state in a way that will be able to cope effectively with the threats of Qatar to bring an “Islamic winter” to Jerusalem that it has been supporting since December of 2010. Democracy does not have to allow jihad to be waged against it, even if this jihad uses means that appear to be legal. This is called “defensive democracy,” and a democratic state that refrains from defending itself is a “suicidal democracy.”

Qatar’s support for anti-Semites is not new: only a few months ago the Emir of Qatar visited the Gaza Strip and left the terrorist government of Hamas almost a half billion dollars, and not to fund a delegation of “Lovers of Zion” in the Strip. With this, Qatar has proven that it is a state that supports terror, and in the most official way. If the Jewish people and its Christian supporters do not wake up in time, we might find ourselves victims of the jihad that Qatar has declared on Israel in the matter of Jerusalem. The Israeli legislature must take immediate action in order to lay down the legal infrastructure for the Israeli and Jewish defensive battle for the capital of the Jews since 3000 years ago.

The Jewish and Christian world must use their political abilities and financial resources  to preempt the encroaching evil that is threatening Jerusalem, brought in by the desert tribes and funded by the monies from the black gold.

In November of 636 C.E. the Islamic siege of Jerusalem, which was then under the command of the Byzantine bishop Sopronius, began. Half a year afterward, toward the end of April, 637, after Khaliph Umar bin al-Khattab arrived at the gates of the city, Sopronius  surrendered and handed the keys of Jerusalem over to the cruel ruler of the desert tribes. The question that the world is now presented with is: will the keys of the holy city again be handed over to the tribes of the desert who enter on the wings of petrodollars from the Arabian Peninsula? Has the time not yet come to undo the legacy of criminal archaeologist, Moshe Dayan, who granted control over the site of the Temple to the Wakf so that he – Dayan – could secretly excavate it? Will the Jewish and Christian world allow oil monies to subjugate again the holy city and bring its residents to their knees?

    SOMEONE SHOULD POINT OUT TO qATAR THAT THE ARABS LIVING IN ISRAEL HAS A HIGHER STANDARD OF LIVING, AND LONGER HEALTHY LIFE THAN THOSE LIVING IN OTHER MOSLEM COUNTRIES. IS HE SO AFRAID TO FLY TO SYRIA TO STOP THE DEATH AND DESTRUCTION BUT WOULD TRAVEL WHERE THE WEATHER IS NICE AND NO MILIARTY ACTIUON OR DEATH?
    NO WONDER WHY HE HAD TO BUY AL GORE SINCE HE IS A COWARD TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND AFRIAD HIS PEOPLE WILL OUST HIM FOR BEING THE COWARD THAT HE IS.

  2. Yechiel Baum says:

    WHY HE DOES NOT GIVE FREE AIRLINE TICKETS ON QATAR AIRLINES TO THE BROTHERHOOD AND TERRORISTS TO COME TO HIS COUNTRY – EVEN AS TOURISTS? WOULD THEY LEAVE AND DECIDE IT IS PALESTINE AND PART OF GREATER EGYPT/SYRIA/SUDAN UNION? SINCE HE OWNS THE AIRLINE, HE COULD DO IT ON HIS 380 AIRBUS TO ACCOMODATE ALL THOSE PEOPLE.
