    The tiny state of Israel, which illegally occupies the country of Palestine, is the real evil empire - an evil empire built on credit. The state is called "Israel," but the country is called Palestine, and the holy city of Jerusalem is its capital.

    The country of Palestine is geographically located on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea, between 29º and 33º north latitude, and between 34º and 36º east longitude. On most maps the name “Israel” is printed in bold letters, but if you look closely you will see that the name “P-A-L-E-S-T-I-N-E” is always written across the whole of the country, which includes the West Bank, the Golan Heights, and the Gaza Strip – lands that are presently occupied (militarily) by the Israeli Government...

    The state of Israel is about the size of Vermont. One would have to look very close to see it on a map of the Middle East. Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula is larger than the state of Israel. Yet the Western world is bombarded daily via the media by news and events originating from Tel Aviv, the communications center of this small Jewish state. Why? Because the rich, powerful, highly-militaristic Zionist entity – which controls the media in both Israel and the U.S. – is almost fanatically intent upon perpetuating Jewish thought and Western ideology throughout the world, via capitalism and Christianity...

    The real devil of the world is not the racist Caucasian or WASP, but the Jew, because the Jew is almost entirely responsible for basic Caucasian mentality. He invented communism (Karl Marx was Jewish), and conspired with the European (i.e., King James of England) in the creation of capitalism and Christianity in the early 17th century, when the Bible was first translated into the English language.

    Zionism is the ideology that is central to the existence of the state of Israel, which was established in the country of Palestine on May 14, 1948. Prior to this time Palestine was a British colony on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea, inhabited by native Palestinians and also by many Jews...

    The Zionist movement was born at the First Zionist Congress of 1897, with Theodor Herzl (1860-1904) as its main inspiration. Whereas in previous centuries Zionism had been inextricably linked with a specifically religious orientation, expressed in the hope that God would redeem “His people” by bringing them back to the Holy Land, it now underwent a more nationalistic and political transformation.

    In 1917 the Balfour Declaration, by which British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour pledged to Lord Lionel Rothschild – leader of the British Zionists – Britain’s support for the establishment of a “national home” for the Jewish people in the country of Palestine, “provided nothing was done to prejudice the rights of the indigenous inhabitants.”

    But this was not to be, for the native Palestinians revolted as a result of the forceful takeover of their homelands by the Jews of Europe. Thousands were uprooted and killed, and millions more fled into exile. They are presently dispersed throughout the Middle East, but mainly in Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and the West Bank and Gaza Strip – where they live under Israeli military occupation.

    Several years ago the United Nations adopted an anti-Zionist resolution that equated Zionism with racism. Seventy-two member-nations signed the resolution, including the former Soviet Union and China.

    Racism finds its roots in Zionism because, to quote famed occultist Eliphas Levi: “For the Jew God is separate from humanity; He does not live in His creatures. He is infinite egoism.” This thought is also rooted in Judaism (the religion of the Jews), and is the reason why the Jew thinks that he can do anything he wants to do in this world with impunity. He is “God’s chosen,” so he says, and is therefore better than everyone else. This is pure racism, and it finds its roots in Judaism and Zionist ideology...

    There will never be any peace in the Middle East (and consequently the world) until the Holy City of Jerusalem, which is presently under Israeli control, is internationalized. Jerusalem is the third holiest city in the religion of Islam, after Mecca and Medina. One of the most beautiful mosques in the world – the famous Al-Aqsa masjid (called the “Dome of the Rock”) – is in Jerusalem. It was built in 691 AD, on top of the Jewish temple that was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD, and remains a center of conflict to this very day because the Jews have vowed to rebuild their holy temple on the same site. All that is left of their temple is their sacred “Wailing Wall.”

    Jerusalem was a Palestinian city before Abraham the Patriarch crossed the Euphrates River on his way to the “Promised Land” (i.e., the country of Canaan) some 4,000 years ago. It was originally built and inhabited by an African people called the “Jebusites.” The earliest notice of the city is in the Old Testament book of Joshua [15:8, 18:16, and 18:28]. Here Jerusalem is called “Ha-Jebusi” (the Jebusite) after its occupiers. The word “Jebus” is also found in Judges 19:10-11: “Jebus,” which is Jerusalem...the city of the Jebusites. They were the direct descendants of Canaan, who was the son of Ham and Noah’s grandson. Although the Jews presently claim the city of Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel, Biblical history offers irrefutable proof of the fact that Jerusalem is the Arab capital of the Arab country of Palestine...

    And so the Zionist Jew, the real devil of the world, continues to lay claim to the land of Palestine, calling it Israel, which is the real evil empire, an empire built on credit (American aid to Israel amounts to more than $5 BILLION per year). The oppressed Palestinian people continue their fervent struggle to regain their homeland through their Intifada movement, striking the heavily-armed Israelis whenever and wherever they can. The Israelis and their American cohorts in the media call them “terrorists,” whereas throughout the Middle East they are known as freedom-fighters...

    There is only one way to end terrorism and have peace in the world today, and that is to settle the Palestinian question...

    Israel has over 200 weapons of mass destruction in its military arsenal...nuclear warheads. Yet nothing is said about that in the Western media...and they haven't found any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq yet!

    Is the plight of Palestine, a Jewish, Arab or African Story?

    Peace Brother Aqil,

    You are correct that the city of Jerusalem was also called Jebus (Yebus), but we need to look deeper into the Canaanite cultural history to understand from where did the name Jerusalem derive. As you probably know, the city was properly called Uru-s(h)alem. The name is believed to be Amoritic and has been translated as meaning “house of” or “founded by Salem” or "Shalim”. Now this is where it gets sticky for a lot of the Judeo-Christian and Islamic community, the name “Shalim” is the name of a Canaanite deity who was one of the sons of El and a mortal woman. Shalim, was called “god of the evening or twilight and his twin brother, “Shahar” was called “god of the morning or dawn”. These twin deities were called, “The Gracious Twins”, in the Cutha tablets from archeological finds in Ras Hamra. What is even more controversial, is that “Shahar”, according to Canaanite religious text had a son named, “Halal”, which is Cannito-Hebraic, and was translated into the Latin name “Lucifer”.

    Here is a short excerpt from The Jerome Biblical Commentary-p. 274:

    “12. O morning star, son of the dawn: The king is identified with a mythological figure from Canaanite religion. From the Ugaritic texts we know of Shahar, the god of “dawn” (sahar); his son is the “morning star” (helal), giving us the mythical Helal ben Shahar. The Vg (Vulgate) translates “morning star” as “Lucifer” Some fathers of the Church have applied this verse to the fall of Satan, prince of demons.”

    The above excerpt is in reference to this Isaiah 14:12 KJV, verse:

    "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!"

    Also the St. Jerome Biblical Commentary said this about Isaiah 14:13 KJV:

    “13. The entire verse swarms with Canaanite imagery, now familiar from Ugaritic literature (VBW 3, 39)”

    This Morning star, symbolic of Venus in the morning, has many associations, such as Ishtar (Easter), Astarte and Aset, along with Jesus. I don’t have time to get into the broader ramifications, but the framework is obvious and the discovery of these associations, takes very little study, in today’s information driven age.

    The St. Jerome Bibl. Com. may be overly simplistic, but I used it to reveal how the church has always known these connections and has mistranslated and reinterpreted text for their own religio-political convenience.

    Also, I think to say that Jerusalem has always been, a Palestinian city, in light of the current Arab majority, is sort of misleading, because the modern people, who are popularly defined as Palestinians are not the original people of that city and the Black Palestinians, who are still inhabitants there, but are rarely talked about, are the “true” Canaanites. Many of them identify their selves as a distinct group of ancient origins, differing from the Arab Palestinians, even though they may be in solidarity with the overall plight of the modern and broader national cause of a free and nationalized modern Palestine.

    I think this is important, because so much of the Jewish/Palestinian conflict is cloaked in the Jewish myth of “Birth Rights”. BUT PLEASE NOTE that I do not think, the rabbinical European and Ashkenazi Jews have a legitimate claim to the land, for I am very aware of the insidious historical path of Zionism. But I think there is something deeper to this story and that’s why, there will be no resolve to this conflict, until ALL the records are set straight.

    Peace,
    Sun Ship
