This issue examines why Jerusalem must remain under Israeli control, offers a thought-provoking response to Iran’s boycott of Israeli products, and reports on Harper’s continued support for Israel, Iran’s outrageous proclamation, and the Geert Wilders trial.


Three More Reasons Why Jerusalem Must Remain Under Israeli Control
1. Jewish legal rights to Jerusalem (and even all of Judea/Samaria) were “irrevocably” recognized in the San Remo conference of 1920 by unanimous agreement of the 51 members of the League of Nations.  Moreover, for the past 150 years, Jews have been the majority population in Jerusalem.
2. Jews were ethnically cleansed from eastern Jerusalem when they were attacked by 5 Arab armies in 1948.
3. Without Israeli security control that exists today, Jerusalem would descend into chaos, with rival militias battling each other like in the Gaza Strip.  This would make life intolerable to residents and tourists alike. In 1949, 25% of Jerusalem Jews fled when exposed to random sniper fire from the Arab Legion.
A Pharmacist Sets the Record Straight
Jerusalem Prayer Team reports: A short time ago, Iran’s Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged the Muslim world to boycott anything and everything that originates with the Jewish people. In response, Meyer M. Treinkman, a pharmacist, out of the kindness of his heart, offered to assist them in their boycott as follows:
“A Muslim who has heart disease must not use Digitalis, a discovery by a Jew, Ludwig Traube. Should he suffer with a toothache, he must not use Novocaine, a discovery of the Jew, Alfred Einhorn. If a Muslim has diabetes, he must not use insulin, the result of research by Oskar Minkowski, a Jew.

“Any Muslim who has Syphilis must not be cured by Salvarsan discovered by a Jew, Dr. Paul Ehrlich. He should not even try to find out whether he has Syphilis, because the Wasserman Test was the discovery of a Jew.

“Muslims with convulsions must put up with them because it was a Jew, Oscar Leibreich, who proposed the use of Chloral Hydrate to treat them. Should a Muslim child get Diphtheria, he must refrain from the “Schick” reaction which was invented by the Jew, Bella Schick.

“They should continue to die or remain crippled by Infantile Paralysis because the discoverer of the anti-polio vaccine was a Jew, Jonas Salk. Muslims must refuse to use Streptomycin and continue to die of Tuberculosis because a Jew, Zalman Waxman, invented the wonder drug against this killing disease.

“Muslim doctors must discard all discoveries and improvements by dermatologist Judas Sehn Benedict, or the lung specialist, Frankel, and of many other world renowned Jewish scientists and medical experts.”


Harper to Israel’s Rescue Again
One Jerusalem reports: Conservative Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper adamantly refused to allow the G 8 Summit, of the world’s economic leaders, to adopt a resolution that would have adopted President Obama’s 1967 lines as the starting point in negotiations between Israel and the Fatah/Hamas coalition. Do you remember, when Prime Minister Netanyahu forcefully rejected Obama’s 1967 lines, the President said he didn’t mean the 1967 lines? Well he did and he tried to get the other countries to join him, but thanks to Canada that did not happen.
Iran at it Again
Iran’s influence over Hamas is no secret. Some consider Hamas as simply a “puppet” terrorist organization for Iran. Now, Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s spiritual mentor is calling for suicide attacks against Israeli civilians – including Israeli children – saying that such attacks are not only “allowed,” but are even “an obligation.” Where’s the outrage at this statement?
Geert Wilders on Trial reports: Geert Wilders does not say what he does about Islam to be “funny,” but to warn Western civilization of the gravest danger it faces, the controversial Dutch politician’s lawyer told a court in Amsterdam on Monday.
Wilders, leader of the conservative Party for Freedom (PVV), stands accused of “inciting hatred and discrimination” against Muslims, allegations arising from his outspoken criticism of radical Islam.
The Dutch legal establishment has proceeded with the landmark trial even though public prosecutors have requested that it be abandoned, leading to the peculiar spectacle of the officials whose job is to secure a conviction instead urging the Amsterdam district court to acquit the accused man. The lengthy trial also saw the judges replaced last fall on the instructions of a review panel, because of an appearance of bias against Wilders. Prosecution and defense alike have argued that Wilders’ statements about Islam constituted protected speech, and that Wilders was not speaking out against Muslims per se, but against what he saw as a growing threat to Dutch society posed by Islamism. Still, the court ruled last month that the trial must go on, and a verdict is now expected mid- to late-June.
