“Because Jerusalem is not a settlement.” Bibi, Who Are You Kidding?

Binyamin Netanyahu spoke at the last AIPAC pep rally and declared, with that golden tongue of his, Israel should not be penalized for building in Jerusalem because Jerusalem is not a settlement, it is our capital!

While the AIPAC community cheered and waved their fists like a group of cheerleaders, I was wondering if there is any basis at all to the Prime Minister’s words.
Jerusalem is not a settlement? Well then, what is it?

Let's suppose for a moment that Jerusalem is a settlement, does that strip the right of Jews to build in their own country?

What is a settlement? The word originated in the Torah (the original Bible) when G-d commanded the Jews to settle the land of Israel. How a positive commandment of G-d turned into an immoral act according to the UN is a subject for a whole other article.

When Arabs settle in Iraq or Kuwait, is that settlement also an illegal establishment? When Arabs build illegally in the north, south, east, and west of Israel are they evil settlers or do they have some special status over the Jews that allows them to settle and build to their heart’s content?
Mr. Netanyahu, we build in Jerusalem because it IS a settlement!
Like a widowed mother who was separated from her son, so has Jerusalem longed for the return of the Jewish people to resettle the Jewish homeland!

The holy city of Hebron, where our Patriarchs are buried, or the tomb of Joseph, and yes, even the temple mount, are all Jewish Land.
It is time our leaders stop acting bashful and embarrassed that we miraculously survived 2000 years of exile. We must stop feeling guilty because the world waves a fist at us when we decide to build in the Land Of Israel.

Bibi, Jerusalem is not only the capital of Israel, it is a settlement! It is a settlement that has been longed for, bled over and prayed for throughout our painful history. Whether the world likes it or not, we have come home. We are resettling the land of Israel.

It is of no surprise to me that the world has a hard time understanding that we are no longer going to turn the other cheek or relinquish our historical, national, and religious rights to a hostile Muslim population. I do expect however, our leaders (at least those who are not part of the post Zionist left) to speak in a clear concise tone.
I have a hard time believing that Binyamin Netanyahu can't find the right words to explain to the world that the Jews settling the Land of Israel is not a crime! In the small chance that Bibi is at a loss for words I have prepared a letter addressed to the UN.

Dear UN,
For two millennia we have tried to live as equals in many of the countries that sit here today. We never made any attempt to take over or destroy any of you. We were very loyal citizens and were always loyal to the law of the land. Even when the laws you decreed were hurtful and many of the laws anti-Semitic in nature, we realized we were guests and behaved!

When the Nazi war machine tried to annihilate us from the world, all we heard was your sigh of relief, 'maybe they would succeed in ridding the world of us'. There were no yells of occupation or illegal building of camps or the use of excessive force (like cyclone B!). You all sat quietly as we were systematically being murdered, raped, abused, gassed, and shot! Some of the countries sitting here today actually felt that meeting Hitler was a good idea! AHEM – England!

After the European nightmare was finally over, we looked for help, a place to gather the survivors. What we found was closed gates all over the world! Not one country happily opened their gates to allow our survivors to resettle!
After coming to the understanding that you, the world, have no interest in us Jews, we turned home. We came to the Land of Israel with the goal of resettling our religious, historical, and national home!

We had no intention to fight or kick out the Arab population that was living here. We came in peace and wished to settle the land that was empty and dead. When the Jews of Hebron were slaughtered by local Arabs in 1929, it came as a complete surprise. We could not understand what drove the Arabs to brutally attack their Jewish neighbors who had always treated them with respect.

Even you Britain, acted with deceit and incited the Arabs to attack us. You refused our cry for arms to defend ourselves while you shut your eyes as the Arabs collected guns and ammunition. Time and time again, our call to the Arabs to live in peace was answered with violence and brutality.

When the UN voted on our right to a national homeland, all the surrounding Arab countries united in the goal of finishing Hitler's job and you did nothing! First in 1948 then again in 56', 67, 73 the Arabs tried again and again to destroy the Jewish homeland!
Till the war of 1967, the Arabs prohibited Jews form visiting the Western Wall, the cave of patriarchs, and other holy sites. Jordan destroyed synagogues throughout Jerusalem and turned our cemeteries into Latrines!

There was no freedom of religion, but a racist, fascist Muslim regime that reminded us of darker times. In 1967 Israel was once again fighting for her survival against 7 Muslim armies. To the world’s surprise and perhaps disappointment, Israel came out victorious in that glorious war!

We freed the holy sites from the racist claws of Muslim rule and opened the holy city of Jerusalem to all religions! In a hideous act of betrayal, the Israeli government handed over the keys of the temple mount to the Mufti (Muslim religious leader). Can you imagine the Muslims handing over the keys to Mecca to a Jew?! Is there any greater act of trust than Israel handing over the holiest of holies to her enemy?!

What did we do with the land we freed? We settled it! We planted trees, opened businesses and the land blossomed for the first time in 2000 years! We allowed Muslims and Christians to be part of our Parliament and 15% percent of our small country consists of Arab citizens!

There is total religious freedom throughout Israel! In how many Muslim countries do you find the religious or personal freedom we allow in Israel? In what Arab country to you find Jews who have rights? In what Arab country does anyone except the Muslims have rights?!

In 1964, Yasser Arafat created the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) This terrorist group had only one goal, the destruction of the Jewish State. The PLO attacked civilian populations in Israel as well as abroad.

NOT ONCE have you, the UN, ever issued a condemnation of any Palestinian or Arab terror! In fact you have always excused these brutal murders with the ludicrous justification that Israel is occupying their land. Perhaps the Jews of Germany should blow up the German parliament? Perhaps Spain should receive some Jewish suicide bombers? Perhaps England should suffer several brutal massacres and murders? Aren't we the Jews, deserving of a good revenge on almost all of you sitting here today?
BUT we the Jewish people do not act in such hideous ways! We do not glorify death, we glorify life!

We don't blow up your towers or hijack your plains, we don't burn your flags or call for the death of the western infidel world, we do not call for our well deserved revenge. We want to live!
You have the audacity, the CHUTZPA to shake a fist at us and tell us it is a crime to settle our land? SHAME ON YOU!

Condemn us and punish us to your heart’s desire. We are used to your shameful, hypocritical anti-Semitic attitude.

Let me assure all the countries who sit around the UN table.

We will settle, we will build, we will fight for our survival!

We will use excessive force against those who try to kill us.

We will not be apologetic for using fighter jets and tanks.

We will fight with all our might against those who threaten our very existence.
