Roots of Arab - Israeli Conflict: Jewish Refugees

Greetings all. Ehav Ever still here and still working on getting a new computer so I can put together the videos about my thoughts about the current war we are in with Hamas. I have so much to say about this and related topics that I have about 12 GB of video material just waiting for me to get a new computer. Until then I have something that NEEDS to be addressed for any of you wondering about the roots of the conflict between Arabs and Jews/Israelis.

This is a conflict that often is touted as a religious conflict, even though it really is not. I have heard it couched between the idea that Israel, or more specifically Jerusalem is the spiritual meeting place of three religions Judaism, Christianty, and Islam. This even though Islam's development took place in Arabia, not here and their holiest site being Mecca. Jerusalem has always been Judaism's holiest site, and all of Israel has been our second holiest site.

The MAJOR point that is rarely discussed in the west about this conflict deals with the Jews who have been in the Middle East long before Islam was established. Those of us who are not of European ancestry are often the subject of the "Exotic" concept of Judaism, even though these communities are the most ancient.

The following videos will explain, in one form or another, the roots of what happened when Jews could no longer live in Islamic centered countries, even though our ancestors had been there prior to Islam's advent. In order to understand the situation in Gaza, you have to Jewish refugees from Arab controlled lands. Gaza is a prime example of the problem with the concept of the no-Jew zone, which actually began several hundred years ago and became law off and one, depending who was in power. These videos show a small part of the bigger picture of what happens when no-Jew zones are the law of the land, and when all we, Jews, really want is to live safely in our own homeland, Israel, the only Jewish country in the entire world.

The Holy Quran:28:4 Behold, Pharaoh exalted himself in the land and divided its people into castes. Asad(28,3) [3] One group of them he deemed utterly low (The Children of Israel); he would slaughter their sons and spare (only) their women: Asad(28,4) [4] for, behold, he was one of those who spread corruption [on earth].

The Holy Quran: 28:5 And We (G-d) wished to be Gracious to those (The Children of Israel) who were being depressed in the land, to make them guiding lights for others and make them heirs.
A message from T.Hamid: If G-d himself wants to be gracious to the Children of Israel should not I also be Gracious to them! May G-d bless them all and keep them for the world to make it better and better.

The Holy Quran 7:137 And We made the children of Israel, who were considered weak (and of no account), inheritors of lands in both east and west, - lands whereon We sent down Our blessings. The fair promise of thy Lord was fulfilled for the Children of Israel, because they had patience and constancy, and We leveled to the ground the great works and fine buildings which Pharaoh and his people erected (with such pride). 17:104 And We said thereafter to the Children of Israel, "Dwell securely in the land of promise": 10:93 We settled the Children of Israel in a beautiful dwelling-place, and provided for them sustenance of the best: it was after knowledge had been granted to them.

The Holy Quran 20:80 O ye Children of Israel! We delivered you from your enemy, and We made a Covenant with you to give you the right side (the blessed side) of Mount Sinai, and We sent down to you Manna (special food) and quails.

The Holy Quran 26:59 Thus it was, but We made the Children of Israel inheritors of such things (the promised land)

As I stated before this isn't a war of religions, the suras above from the Quran prove that point, but something on a different scale of things. More on this later. So keep us all in your prayers and The Chronicles of Ehav Ever will continue.

Yes, they are real interesting. I think this amount of detail needs to be taught in all Jewish schools.
