6 Thus saith the LORD, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer the LORD of hosts: I am the first, and I am the last, and beside Me there is no God.

19 God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: when He hath said, will He not do it? or when He hath spoken, will He not make it good?


44 And yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break My covenant with them; for I am the LORD their God.

45 But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am the LORD.

Clearing up a misconception...
There is a big misconception with Chanukah in regards to gifts. Today's gift idea may have derived from non-Jewish sources. The Jewish tradition on Chanukah is to give money/coins to children that could amount to quite a lot if they had lots of relatives and friends in the area. Originally children would go to relatives and friends every day and get their coins.

The Golden Menora: Moving Closer to its Destination


Description from YouTube: On the second night of Chanuka, 5768 (December 6, 2007), the golden menora prepared by the Temple Institute and fit for use in the Holy Temple, was moved from the archaeological site of the Roman Cardo in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem, to its new location, alongside the Yehudah Halevi staircase leading from the Jewish Quarter to the Western Wall Plaza. There it overlooks the Temple Mount, site of the future Holy Temple. A small move, perhaps, for the golden menora, but a giant leap forward for mankind, as the rebuilding of the House of G-d becomes one step closer

Pushing Terrorists Off Of Cyberspace!

It would appear that terrorists using YouTube to spread videos depicting terrorist activity are being pushed off cyberspace.

Our intrepid blog editor, Jerry Gordon, has been posting about and monitoring this issue for some time, as well as communicating with key Members of Congress about the problem.

Senator Lieberman, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, has conducted hearings on this issue. He brought pressure on Google/YouTube to ban the posting of videos that show terrorist actions, such as attacks on American troops.

That resistance and pressure to get rid of terrorist training videos on YouTube is working.

Recently our talented colleague Joseph Shahda came across a chat room thread below on the terrorist website “Ekhlaas.”

The reaction from Senator Lieberman’s staff can be summed up in one word -- “wonderful.”

Resistance to radical Islam works.

Here is Joseph Shahda’s translation of Ekhlaas terrorist forum threads

“Username: Mohajer Daya’aa Al Tareek, July 4, 2008

Dear Brothers: Invade, Invade YouTube. Most of special and martyrdom operation have been removed.

In the name of Allah the most merciful the most compassionate

Beloved brothers, we beg you to invade YouTube because most of the Jihadi sections have been removed and in particular the martyrdom ones. I did not find the operation of Khatib Fatima. Therefore experts, invade, invade. Allah blesses you.

Username: Hanat Yadaiy, July 4, 2008

I post one movie a day on YouTube and under dozens of different names. After a month one or two names are removed but I keep the work using the other names

Username: Mohajer Daya’aa Al Tareek, July 4, 2008

Allah bless you my beloved brother and continue your work and Allah willing we will have the experience and we will not stop from invading the infidels. Allah will make us victors and the prophet is our idol and the martyrdom is our goal

Username: Mohajer Daya’aa Al Tareek, July 5, 2008

Elevate this subject ( *** he is asking that this thread he wrote will be put in a more prominent place on Ekhlaas terrorist forum so more members will see it and participate in it)

Username: Hanat Yadaiy, July 5, 2008

Thanks Allah who gave us this tool to speak the truth in their sites and no matter how many names they remove, eliminate, and ban we will not give up and they will get rid of us until we go to the battlefields and then our brothers after us will take the task.”
