Prince William, the Falklands, and Those Expansionist Jews…
by Gerald A. Honigman
The AP article on November 14th spoke of Great Britain’s Prince William, second in line to the throne, being deployed to Las Malvinas.
The latter largely became known as the Falkland Islands the same way that Judea and Samaria became renamed the “West Bank”…as a result of British imperial shenanigans.
To distinguish the western part of the original 1920 Mandate of Palestine from the Emirate of Transjordan the Brits created in 1922 for their Arab allies on the east bank of the Jordan River (some 80% of the total area), the name “West Bank” came into use. This was further reinforced after Transjordan grabbed that non-apportioned area of the Mandate for itself after it invaded a re-born Israel in 1948. Holding both banks of the river, the Emirate renamed itself Jordan soon afterwards.
If there is a difference, it’s that long before there was either an Argentina or Great Britain, Jews were living, making history, and changing the world forever in the moral and spiritual legacy they left behind in Judea and Samaria.
David was born in Bethlehem and was crowned King of Israel in Hebron and had children there. He would later make Jerusalem his capital–over three millennia ago. Jerusalem is mentioned over six hundred times in the Hebrew Bible–not even once in Arab Islam’s Qur’an.
Earlier, Abraham made Hebron known to the world in the first place by purchasing a burial plot there for many of the patriarchs and matriarchs of the Jewish people. Hannah dedicated her son, Samuel, to the service of G_d in the care of the High Priest, Eli, in Shiloh, and G_d renewed the promise of the Promised Land to Abraham’s grandson, Jacob, at Bethel. Jacob made peace with his brother, Esau, at Penuel and by doing so was thus transformed by G_d into his higher self–Israel–in the process.
The oldest known version of Biblical scripture ever found was located in the Dead Sea Scrolls at Qumran in the Judean Wilderness, and the Jews held off the mighty Roman Empire for years at the fortress of Masada. The list goes on…
All of those places above are in Judea.
While most of the world was still worshipping stone idols and practicing human sacrifice and fertility rights, the Jews–despite their own imperfections–were spreading the knowledge of an ethical G_d who demands justice, loves mercy, and commands that man should love his neighbor as himself to the rest of mankind.
Have you ever wondered why Jews are so disproportionately represented in movements for human rights and social betterment throughout history? Look no further than what you just read above. They have indeed been–as G_d instructed them to be millennia ago in Zion–”a light unto the nations.”
So, Royal Air Force pilot, Prince William, has now set off to defend Her Majesty’s claim to islands almost 8,000 miles away from home–land first acquired almost two centuries ago. At the same time, the Brits were expanding their empire far and wide elsewhere as well. Think about that a bit when you consider London’s finger wagging at Jews simply wanting to live beyond the 9 to 15-mile wide ghetto of a state Israel was left as via the 1949 armistice lines which the Brits–and others–now expect Israel to return to.
When Jews dig in the soil of Judea, Samaria, and Israel–despite their forced exile, Diaspora, and forced Arabization of the land and its people after the Jihadi invasions of Muhammad’s successors in the 7th century C.E.–Jews continuously find their own roots and history. They are indeed home…
What do the Brits find when they dig on the Falklands? Or the Russians in Chechnya? Or the United States in Samoa?
Yet all of those (and many more) nations’ leaders act as if Jews are being unreasonable when they claim that they should once again be allowed to live in East Jerusalem and elsewhere–where Jews indeed owned land and lived up until the Arab massacres of the 1920s and 1930s.
Regardless of the conflicting Argentinean and British claims to the territory Prince William is now assigned to, the plain fact is that the archipelago sits a few hundred miles off the coast of Argentina–and thousands of miles away from Great Britain. Yet the latter fought a war and acquired them in the first place in the name of its own sovereignty.
Judea and Samaria are in Israel’s backyard.
Keep all of this in mind in light of the hypocrisy and double standards which Israel will undoubtedly continue to be subjected to in the days which lie ahead.
