Secret Relationship between Orthodox Jews and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Persian: محمود احمدی‌نژاد, Mahmūd Ahmadinezhād [mæhˈmuːd(-e) æhmædiːneˈʒɒːd] ( listen),[2][3][4] English: /ɑːkməˈdɪnɨʒɒd/; born 28 October 1956[5][6]) is the sixth and current President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the main political leader of the Alliance of Builders of Islamic Iran, a coalition of conservative political groups in the country. An engineer and teacher from a poor background,[7] Ahmadinejad joined the Office for Strengthening Unity[8] after the Islamic Revolution. Appointed a provincial governor, he was removed after the election of President Mohammad Khatami and returned to teaching.[9] Tehran's council elected him mayor in 2003.[10] He took a religious hard line, reversing reforms of previous moderate mayors.[11] His 2005 presidential campaign, supported by the Alliance of Builders of Islamic Iran, garnered 62% of the runoff election votes, and he became President on 3 August 2005.[12][13]
Ahmadinejad is a controversial figure both within Iran and internationally. He has been criticized domestically for his economic lapses and disregard for human rights. He launched a gas rationing plan in 2007 to reduce the country's fuel consumption, and cut the interest rates that private and public banking facilities could charge.[14][15][16] He supports Iran's nuclear energy program. His election to a second term in 2009 was widely disputed[17][18] and caused widespread protests domestically and drew significant international criticism.[19] In 2011 the presence of a so-called "deviant current" among his aides and supporters led to the arrest of several of them.[20] 
So does Mahmoud Ahmandinjad really hate the Jews?????

WHAT DO YOU THINK????

HEBREWS, PLEASE KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS Of YAHUWAH

Mal. 3:6 tells us that YAHUWAH does not change.


Heb. 13:8 tells us the same thing about Yahushuah.


Isa. 8:20 tells us that if people do not speak in accordance with the law and the testimony then there is no light in them, Also see John 7:16.


Hosea 4:6 tells us that if you reject His knowledge, YAHUWAH will reject you. And if you forget His laws, He will forget your children.


Prov. 28:9 tells us that he who refuses to listen to YAHUWAH’s laws, even his prayers is an abomination.


Ps 119:118 tells us that those who stray from YAHUWAH’s statutes, YAHUWAH rejects.


Deut. 18:18, 19 is a prophecy about the coming of Yahushuah, a Prophet like unto Moses, and that YAHUWAH shall cause Him to speak His words-His laws and His testimony (Isa.8:20). See also John 7:16-19, Isa. 48:16-19, Matt 7:21, Luke 22:42, John 6:38, Rom. 12:2, Heb. 13:20, 21. What is Yahushuah love? It was doing the will of His Father. See also Ex 25:16, 21, 31:18, II Chron. 23:11, John 3:32-34.


Acts 13:42, 43 tells us that the Gentiles also kept the Seventh-day Sabbath, even though they were “under grace.” And take note that no one “corrected them on this, for it was in keeping with all the testimonies of Yahushuah and the Apostles.


Luke 16:17 tells us it is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for one tittle of the law to pass, or fail, or for that matter to be annulled or rescinded.


Matt. 5:17-19 and Rom. 13:8-10 tells us that YAHUWAH’s laws and commandments are the same thing.


I John 34 tells us that sin and lawlessness are the same thing. Rom. 6:23 tells us that the wages of sin is death.


James 2:10, 11 tells us that if you transgress in just one point of the law then you are guilty of breaking the whole law. This is Satan’s greatest trick-to get us to believe that if we break just a minor one, we will be ok. This also is the deception of replacing YAHUWAH’s chosen day of worship, and the malignancy behind it.


I John 5:2, 3 tells us that this is how we know we love YAHUWAH, that we keep His commandments.


I Peter 2:21 tells us that The Meshiac is our example, and we should follow Him, Also see john 15:10.


Matt. 5 17-20 tell us that Yahushuah did not come to end, destroy or abolish the law, but rather to fulfill it.


Rom. 8:1-4 tells us that if you are in The Meshiac, then you also will fulfill the righteous requirements of the law. Verses 5-9 tell us that the carnally minded cannot keep the laws of YAHUWAH. Now, while Rom. 8:3 and 3:20 tell us that we are not saved by the works of the law.


Rom. 4:1-4 tells us, particularly in verse 4, that we do not do such works to be saved, but rather out of debt, because we have been saved.


Matt 7:21-23 tells us that Yahushuah will reject those who practice lawlessness, on judgment day.


Matt. 24:20 tells us that The Meshiac still expected people to be keeping the seventh-day Sabbath even in the future, so this passage speaks about the destruction of Jerusalem, which didn’t happen until 70 A.D.


Rom 3:31 tells us that the law is not made void by faith or grace.


Rom. 3:19-22 tells us that we are saved by faith, not by the works of the law, but this does not make void the law, or in other words, it does not mean that the law doesn’t not apply-verse 31.


Rev. 12:17, 14:12 and 22:14 tell us that those who overcome the Devil will be those who keep the commandments of YAHUWAH and have the testimony or faith of Yahushuah.


Luke 18:18-23 tells us that Yahushuah did teach the law and indeed that it was the way to eternal life, when coupled with love. I hope you can see that the doctrine which teaches that grace makes void the law is a false one.


Ezek. 13:9 tells us that prophets or teachers who envision futile ways and speak lies shall not be in YAHUWAH’s everlasting assembly. See Isa 1:19-20, 5:20 and Jer. 5:20-25, 30, and 31.


Ex 31:13-18 tells us that YAHUWAH made the Sabbath to serve as a sign for us that we may know that it is YAHUWAH who sanctifies us, as opposed to the other heathen peoples, and also that it is a perpetual covenant in itself. To those who say that it applies only to Israel, Gal 3:29 tells us that if we are The Meshiac’s, then we are Abraham’s seed. So that one may know that it is the children of faith, not the children of blood, who are spiritual Israel, or the spiritual inheritors of the Abrahmic blessings.


Isa. 24:4-6 tells us that it is the changing of YAHUWAH’s statutes, or the transgression of it that destroy the earth, and cause it to languish. That to transgress His laws is to defile the earth.


Rev. 11:18 tells us that He will destroy those who do this.


Dan 7:25 tells us that one would come who would seek to, or actually the key word here is “think to change times and laws” the only law that is also a time is the Sabbath commandment. Emperor Constantine of Rome is the one who changed the Sabbath to Sunday. You will have to read about this elsewhere. I am going to note a few starting places to read about it.


A book called The Didache-the last paragraph on 291-292. There is a very important reason why the Sabbath commandment is the only commandment that begins with, REMEMBER Ex 20:8. This YAHUWAH said because He knew that men would forget. The Sabbath commandment is the only one of the Ten that makes no worldly sense. He knew it would be the easiest one for Satan to deceive people over, for that very reason. By the wisdom and reasoning of the world, what does it matter which day we worship on? Well, it matters to YAHUWAH. I John 3:4 and James 2:10, 11 The new Covenant was actually foretold in the old testament. And you might be surprised by what it says. See Isa. 54:10, Jer. 31:33, Ez. 36:26, 27 and Mark 14:24 If all Scripture is given by the inspiration of the Ruach Ha Kodesh 2 Tim. 3:16, then the Ruach Ha Kodesh is the actual author of all Scripture. Now if YAHUWAH and The Meshiac never change Mal. 3:6 and Heb. 13:8, then the testimony of the Ruach Ha Kodesh must remain consistent throughout the Scriptures, both Old and New Covenants, which is what I am presenting to you in this Bible study. Indeed, this is also what Yahushuah tells us in Matt. 5:17-20. This also should tell you that those who teach that grace makes void the law are not in keeping with what the Scriptures themselves, and instead are teaching license for iniquity, which is another word for lawlessness, I John 3:4. Just as Yahushuah did not come to save us IN our sins, but to save us FROM our sins, He also did not come to set us free from His Laws, but rather to expound upon them and to write them upon the tables of our hearts, that we might not transgress against Him Ps. 119:11, 33-40, 97-120, 137-144, and 169-176. So those who teach that the law no longer applies because of grace are in fact teaching you to sin.


Matt. 5:19, 7:21-23, I John 3:4 tells us that sin is the transgression of the law. II Thes. 2:3-12 tells us about the coming of the mystery of iniquity (or lawlessness). The mystery is how do you get to heaven without Keeping YAHUWAH’s laws? There are those who would state that Yahushuah only laws are to love YAHUWAH before all, and to love thy neighbor as thyself Matt. 22:35-40. But then I ask you, can you love YAHUWAH in disobedience? Could you love your neighbor if you kill him, or steal from him, or sleep with his wife?


I john 5:2,3 In John 14:15,23,24 The Meshiac tells us that if we love Him we will keep His commandments, and that His word is the word of the Father as well (in other words He speaks His Father’s words), and that those who do not keep His commandments do not love Him, Indeed we are told that His commandments are love Matt. 22:35-40. So you cannot love if you are breaking the commandments. Note: As you can see, YAHUWAH’s law is a transcript, if you will, of His character. It can no more change or end than can the eternal YAHUWAH,

The difference between Hebrews & Modern Jews

As we approach the year 2012, something very wonderful is happeing faster than a person has a chance to understand it. It's happening to people who have been called, "African Americans" and not just African Americans only, but this phenomenon is happing simultaneously all over the world in, India, South American, Europe, and Africa.

So, just what is going on? Well, seemingly, almost overnight, many people of color are simply starting to " wake up to the reality that we are the hebrew decendants written in scripture". Since I live in the United States, I will focus on what is happening here! Everyday, more and more African American's, Hispanics and Native American are starting to declare that they just awoke from a slumber and are studying the scriptures to discover that they fit in every detail, the of the conditions that are found in Deuteronomy 28 and Leviticus 26. 

When those scriptures are looked at carefully and slowly it is obvious that the Most High was prophesying the events of the TransAtlantic Slave Trade that became full blown around A.D.1611-1865.  This would be a little more than 1.5 days after the death of the promised Meshiach. Remember the scriputre tells us that 1 day with Yahuwah is as 1000 years and 1000 years is as 1 day.

Historically, it can be proven that the first enslavement that the Hebrew's expierenced did not last 400 yrs as has popularly been taught. The misunderstanding comes from this verse: GENESIS 15:13 Then He said to Abram: "Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. 14 And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions. 15 Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age." (NKJV) Please read this article for clearity

But the prophesy in Deuteronomy 28:68 And the Lord will take you back to Egypt in ships, by the way of which I said to you, “You shall never see it again.” And there you shall be offered for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you. Now you should do some research on the TransAtlantic Slave Trade to verify verses 16-68 of Deutoronomy 28. and Leviticus 26.

Food for Thought, if you have an American $1.00 bill, please look at the symbol of the Pyramid on the back signfiying that when the Hebrews were brought as slaves to the shores of America we were entering back into Egypt.  So, today the difference between the Hebrews and the Jews is a matter of origin. 

The modern Eastern European Jewish people were Khazars who converted to the Abrahamic faith in 747 A.D See: "The Thirteenth Tribe" by Arthur Koestler, Read Book Here.

Mr. Koestler was an Ashkenazi Jew and took pride in his Khazar ancestry. He was also a very talented and successful writer who published over 25 novels and essays. His most successful book, Darkness at Noon, was translated in thirty-three languages. As expected, The Thirteenth Tribe caused a stir when published in 1976, since it demolishes ancient racial and ethnic dogmas...At the height of the controversy in 1983, the lifeless bodies of Arthur Koestler and his wife were found in their London home. Despite significant inconsistencies, the police ruled it a suicide.

(BUT, IT IS OBVIOUS WHAT REALLY HAPPENED..) SEE THAT'S THE FUNNY THING, PEOPLE WHO WANT TO HIDE THE FACTS, CANNOT STOP THE TRUTH FROM COMING FORTH..BECAUSE THE MOST HIGH HAS THE FINAL SAY ON THE MATTER! 

 
Although being Jewish has become very popular in the later 20th and 21th Centuries, neither Eastern European Jews nor Judaism, should not be mistaken as the same as, the Biblical Hebrews or biblical worship. Hebrews are still scattered around the globe, in the same conditions discribed in those verses mentioned above.  I could go into many scriptures and historical documents to prove my case, but there are so many other Hebrew's doing such a good job of this already.

The reason it is important to understand the difference between the two groups is because, just as the Most High scattered us (The Hebrews), he has promised to regather us, and bring us back to our own land. That is precisely what is happening, every week someone emails, or calls me and tells me that he/she "just woke up" I completely understand..this is not the work of any one man, it is the work of the Most High Yahuwah, so it cannot be stopped. The Hebrew people are like the sand of the sea in number, all the prophesy's will be fullfilled. It can only continue its rapid spread around the globe as we are witnessing each day.

It is truly fascinating because things are happening so fast to among the Hebrew people, customs, ways, patterns and abrupt changes in diet and worship; it is as if a genetic code suddenly got swtiched on inside every Hebrew descendant of the TransAtlantic Slave Trade. It is appropriate because we are comming to the "End of the Age" and it is at this time that the Most High promised to re gather his children. Isaiah 43:5-7 Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

FEMA CONCENTRATION CAMPS: Locations and Executive Orders

There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general's signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached. Ask yourself if you really want to be on Ashcroft's list.

"Cochin Jews" India's Oldest Black Jews since 587 B.C.

It is so interesting to that in this day and time so much information is surfacing about the origin and color of the original Hebrews and the scripture is so clear that The Father would scatter his children to the four corners of the earth. Please enjoy you can also find this on Wikapedia.

Cochin Jews, also called Malabar Jews (Malabar Yehudan), are the oldest group of Jews in India, with roots dating to the time of King Solomon.[2] Historically, they lived in the Kingdom of Cochin in South India,[3] now part of the state of Kerala. Several rounds of immigration of the Jewish diaspora into Kerala led to an ethnic, but not a linguistic, diversity: the community was divided into White Jews and Black Jews, both of which spoke Judeo-Malayalam, a form of the Malayalam tongue native to the state.[4] The vast majority of the Cochin Jews emigrated to Israel; the number remaining in Kerala itself is minuscule, and the community faces extinction there.

Biblical Account
The Bible contains the first mention of Jews in connection with India.[citation needed] The Book of Esther, which dates from the second century B.C, cites decrees enacted by Ahasuerus relating to the Jews dispersed throughout the provinces of his empire from Hodu to Kush. Hodu is Hebrew for India[6][7]; Kush is Ethiopia[8]. Talmudic and Midrashic literature also mention spices, perfumes, plants, animals, textiles, gems and crockery which either bear names of Indian origin or are indigenous to the country.[9][10]
Traders in King Solomon's time carried out regular sea voyages to the South Indian coast, bartering for ivory, apes, and silver, and the first Cochin Jews may have been the children of Israelite sailors and local women.[11] Following the destruction of the First Temple in the Siege of Jerusalem (587 BC), some Jewish exiles came to India.[12] But it was after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE that the first wave of large numbers of settlers came to Cranganore, an ancient port near Cochin.[13] Cranganore, now transliterated as Kodungallur, but also known under other names, is a city of legendary importance to this community. Fernandes goes so far as to call it "a substitute Jerusalem in India"[14] and Katz and Goldberg note the "symbolic intertwining" of the two cities.[15]
St. Thomas, one of the disciples of Jesus, is supposed to have visited India, and many of the Jews who converted to Christianity at that time became Nasrani or Saint Thomas Christians.[16]
Central to the history of the Cochin Jews is their close relationship with Indian rulers, and this was eventually codified on a set of copper plates granting the community special privileges. The date of these plates, known as "Sâsanam",[17] is contentious, with local tradition setting it as long ago as 379 CE, although paleographic evidence suggests the mid-eighth century. Whatever the date, the Jewish leader Joseph Rabban was granted the rank of prince over the Jews of Cochin, given the rulership and tax revenue of a pocket principality in Anjuvannam, near Cranganore, and rights to seventy-two "free houses".[18] The Hindu king gave permission in perpetuity (or, in the more poetic expression of those days, "as long as the world and moon exist") for Jews to live freely, build synagogues, and own property "without conditions attached".[19][20] A link back to Rabban, "the king of Shingly" (another name for Cranganore), was a sign of both purity and prestige. Rabban's descendants maintained this distinct community until a chieftainship dispute broke out between two brothers, one of them named Joseph Azar, in the sixteenth century.
The oldest gravestone of a Cochin Jew is written in Hebrew and dates to 1269 CE. It is near the Chendamangalam Synogogue, now a museum[21]
In 1341 a disastrous flood silted up the port of Cranganore, and trade shifted to a smaller port at Cochin (Kochi). Many of the Jews moved quickly, and within four years the first synagogue had been completed.[22] The Portuguese Empire established a trading beachhead in 1500, and until 1663 remained the dominant power. They were not kind to the Jews.

European Jews arrive

The Paradesi Jews, also called "White Jews," settled in the region at about this time. In the sixteenth century, Jews in many parts of Europe faced religious persecution under the Inquisition, and were exiled from countries where they had been living for centuries, such as Holland and Spain. They brought with them the Ladino language and their Sephardic customs. They found the Black Malabari Jewish community quite different, and tensions between the two communities existed from early on, according to Mandelbaum[23] The European Jews had good trade links with their countries of origin, and useful languages to conduct international trade, which helped their position both financially and politically.
In 1524, the Muslims, backed by the ruler of Calicut (today called Kozhikode and not to be confused with Calcutta), attacked these wealthy Jews of Cranganore on the pretext that they had an advantage with the pepper trade. The Jews fled south to the Kingdom of Cochin, seeking the protection of the Cochin Royal Family (Perumpadapu Swaroopam). The Hindu Raja of Cochin, Bhaskara Ravi Varman II (979— 1021) gave them asylum. Moreover, he exempted Jews from taxation but bestowed on them all privileges enjoyed by the tax-payers.[24]
Shortly thereafter, the Portuguese occupied the Kingdom of Cochin and suppressed the Jews until the Dutch displaced them in 1660. The new Protestant rulers were more tolerant of the Jews than the Catholics had been. (See the Goa Inquisition for the situation in nearby Goa.)

Traditions and way of life

The 12th century Jewish traveler Benjamin of Tudela wrote about the Malabari coast of Kerala: "The inhabitants are all black, and the Jews also. The latter are good and benevolent. They know the law of Moses and the prophets, and to a small extent the Talmud and Halacha."[31] Maimonides (1135–1204), the preeminent Jewish philosopher of his day, wrote, "Only lately some well-to-do men came forward and purchased three copies of my code [the Mishneh Torah] which they distributed through messengers...Thus the horizon of these Jews was widened and the religious life in all communities as far as India revived."[32] (The Baghdadi Jews came to India in the 18th century, and it was only then that the Bene Israel Jews of India were "discovered" and taught mainstream Judaism by the Cochinis and Baghdadis,[33] so Maimonides must be referring to the Cochini Jews.)
Further support for the Mishneh Torah circulating in India comes in the form of a letter sent from Safed, Israel to Italy in 1535. In it David del Rossi claimed that a Jewish merchant from Tripoli had told him the India town of Shingly (Cranganore) had a large Jewish population who dabbled in yearly pepper trade with the Portuguese. As far as their religious life, he wrote they: "only recognize the Code of Maimonides and possessed no other authority or Traditional law."[34] According to Katz, Rabbi Nissim of Gerona (the Ran) visited the Cochini Jews, and they preserve in their song books the poem he wrote about them.[35] In the Kadavumbagham synagogue, there was a yeshiva (school) for both "children's education and adult study of Torah and Mishnah."[36]
The early twentieth century Jewish Encyclopedia states, "Though they neither eat nor drink together, nor intermarry, the Black and the White Jews of Cochin have almost the same social and religious customs. They hold the same doctrines, use the same ritual (Sephardic), observe the same feasts and fasts, dress alike, and have adopted the same language Malayalam. ... The two classes are equally strict in religious observances,"[37] and prominently featured is a black Cochin Jew with his entire head shaved, save for his very prominent peyot. According to Chemana, the Jews of Cochin "coalesced around the religious fundamentals: devotion and strict obedience to Biblical Judaism and to the Jewish customs and traditions ... Hebrew, taught through the Torah texts by rabbis and teachers who came especially from Yemen...".
It is notable that the Jews of Cochin did not adhere to the Talmudic prohibition against public singing by women (kol isha), and therefore have always had a rich tradition of Jewish prayers and narrative songs performed by women in Judeo-Malayalam.[38][39][40] (However, this Talmudic prohibition is not absolute; there are in fact traditional Orthodox interpretations which sanction certain kinds of singing performances by women before men, and other historical Jewish communities besides the Cochini one relied on this lenient interpretation.[41])
Benedicta Pereira, a Paradesi Jew, writes, "Mostly the older people prohibited the use of milk and meat the same day in the house[;] and to scare the young Jew's[,] [sic] so as not to be inspired by the culture[,] there were stories of bad Omens for those who dare[d] to think even of milk and meat together

America is most definately on the Decline as a World Power

It is bad enough that the United States of America terrorizes other nations, kills the leaders of free countries, and pushes thier "DemonCrafty" (Democracy) agenda in order to opress and gain resources and advantages that do not belong to those who seek after these things. But when this nation fully accepts same-sex marriage, the nations end will surely follow. Since ancient times, no nation has maintained it's power or glory upon accepting and promoting the homosexual agenda. This sends a clear message to Hebrews to "Come out of this Babylon" and also shows how the father will use all of the wicked rulers' craftiness to ensnare and dissasemble them. The homosexuals in high Government down to the common man who embraces the Gay lifestyle may be very excited about this news, but it is a short lived excitment. When standing face-to-face with the King who is King of the Universe, whose commandments have been disregarded and broken, what will the sinner and the ungoldly do?

Hebrews of the Most High look into the Father's word and prepare your hearts and minds in righteousness. Sow good seeds, do good works, Do not be ensnared by the wind of this age because everything you see now will surely pass away. Wasn't ancient Greece a world power at one time? How about Vesuvious? These nations were cut down in the height of thier immoral lifestyle. The Flood of ancient times came because of the same reason. Do not be decieved, The Father is not mocked.

Gay Judge's Ruling on Prop. 8 Upheld

A federal judge ruled Tuesday to uphold Judge Vaughn Walker's decision to strike down California's same-sex marriage ban.
Proponents of Proposition 8 – which defines marriage as between a man and a woman – had asked that Walker's 2010 ruling be vacated, given that he has been in a same-sex relationship and thus had something to gain from the case. But Chief U.S. District Judge James Ware rejected that bid.
"The sole fact that a federal judge shares the same circumstances or personal characteristics with other members of the general public, and that the judge could be affected by the outcome of a proceeding in the same way that other members of the general public would be affected, is not a basis for either recusal or disqualification," Ware concluded.
Walker had presided over the case involving two same-sex couples who filed a lawsuit against Proposition 8. The marriage amendment was passed by a majority of California voters in November 2008.
In August 2010, Walker ruled against the voter-approved measure, saying in his 136-page opinion, "Moral disapproval alone is an improper basis on which to deny rights to gay men and lesbians.
"The evidence shows conclusively that Proposition 8 enacts, without reason, a private moral view that same-sex couples are inferior to opposite-sex couples."
The ruling was a blow to traditional marriage advocates. Proponents of Proposition 8 argued that this is about democracy and respecting the people's vote, more than anything.
After the ruling, Walker retired from the U.S. District Court of Northern California earlier this year. He served 21 years as a federal judge. The case was reassigned to Judge Ware.
He then opened up about his sexuality in April, confirming what the public already knew, that he was gay. Media reports revealed that he has been in a same-sex relationship for 10 years.
Walker has argued that his being in a relationship was irrelevant to his decision to strike down Proposition 8 and did not think it was appropriate to recuse himself from the case.
To do so, Walker said, would be to go down a slippery slope where judges must recuse themselves from a judicial matter because of one’s race, gender or nationality.
But Proposition 8 proponents say he should have recused himself or at least disclosed his relationship.
"This is something he had a vested interest in,” Mathew Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, said.
Ware, however, said in his decision Tuesday, "Although this case was filed by same-sex couples seeking to end a California constitutional restriction on their right to marry, all Californians have an equal interest in the outcome of the case. The single characteristic that Judge Walker shares with the Plaintiffs, albeit one that might not have been shared with the majority of Californians, gave him no greater interest in a proper decision on the merits than would exist for any other judge or citizen."
Since Walker’s decision on Prop. 8, traditional marriage proponents from ProtectMarriage.com have appealed the decision to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The appeals court is currently awaiting a ruling from the California Supreme Court to decide whether Proposition 8 proponents have the legal right to defend the voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage in lieu of the governor and state's attorney general.
The state Supreme Court will likely decide the issue of standing by the end of this year.

S.F. Circumcision Ban Is a Bad Idea But It Could Still Become Law

If you were not aware of what is going on this year here is a very good article and a matter of prayer for Hebrew people. It concerns the covenant that Yahuwah made with our father Avraham concerning the covenant of circumcision. Please follow the link:Circumcision threatend in California So now that we are in the Gregorian calendar year of 2011 and the Jewish year 5771. The United States has decided to end a biblical covenant of circumcision that Yahuwah made with our forefather Avraham. This law is proposing fines and imprisonment for cicumcizing our male children according to Hebrew custom.  The people who are protesting this loudly are Jews and Moslims.

This sounds like what the Hebrews faced during the time of Antiochus Epiphanes in 1 Maccabees 1:41-48. "Moreover king Antiochus wrote to his whole kingdom, that all should be one people,  And every one should leave his laws: so all the heathen agreed according to the commandment of the king. Yea, many also of the Israelites consented to his religion, and sacrificed unto idols, and profaned the sabbath. For the king had sent letters by messengers unto Jerusalem and the cities of Juda that they should follow the strange laws of the land,  And forbid burnt offerings, and sacrifice, and drink offerings, in the temple; and that they should profane the sabbaths and festival days:  And pollute the sanctuary and holy people: Set up altars, and groves, and chapels of idols, and sacrifice swine's flesh, and unclean beasts: That they should also leave their children uncircumcised, and make their souls abominable with all manner of uncleanness and profanation."

A call to Prayer is requested from the Hebrew community. 2 Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

The Western Wall (Ha-Kote Ha-Ma'aravil) What remains of the Last Temple

The Western Wall (Ha-Kotel Ha-Ma'aravi) in Jerusalem is the holiest of Jewish sites, sacred because it is a remnant of the Herodian retaining wall that once enclosed and supported the Second Temple. It has also been called the "Wailing Wall" by European observers because for centuries Jews have gathered here to lament the loss of the temple. (Biblical Hebrews were not able to come because of their captivity. Only in more recent years have Hebrews been able to come to Israel to see what remains of their last temple.)

The Western Wall Plaza, the large open area that faces the Western Wall, functions as an open-air synagogue that can accommodate tens of thousands of worshipers. Prayers take place here day and night, and special services are held here as well.

History

The Western Wall was built by King Herod in 20 BC during his expansion of the Temple enclosure, and is part of a retaining wall that enclosed the western part of Temple Mount. According to the Roman-Jewish historian Josephus, construction of the walls took 11 years, during which time it rained in Jerusalem only at night so as not to interfere with the workers' progress.
In 70 AD, the Romans destroyed Jerusalem and its Temple. During the Ottoman Period (beginning in the 16th century), the wall became the Jews' chief place of pilgrimage, where they came to lament the destruction of the Temple.
For centuries, the Western Wall was located in a narrow alley just 12 feet wide that could accommodate only a few hundred densely packed worshipers. But in 1967, immediately after the Six Day War, Israelis leveled the neighboring Arab district to create the Western Wall Plaza, which can accommodate tens of thousands of pilgrims.
At the same time, the Israelis made the wall about 6 1/2 feet higher by digging down and exposing two more tiers of ashlars (squared stones) from the Temple Plaza's retaining wall that had been buried by accumulated debris for centuries. During the restoration of Israel according the various scritures found in the Torah, the Father will bring back all of the dispersed Hebrews of Judah and Jerusalem and replant us in our land. I am greatful for the people who are in the land that are rebuilding Israel and replanting the trees. This is necessarty for our return.

Hebrew Names of Days and Months

The language of Hebrew (both ancient and modern) tends to be rather simplistic in its structure and use. This article discusses the names (or rather the lack thereof in most cases) of the weekdays and the months. .http://www.yashanet.com/library/hebrew-days-and-mo...

What Happened in The Garden?

What was this tree of the knowledge of good and evil? Or was the knowledge “from the tree of the discernment of function and dysfunction you will not eat from him given that in the day you eat from him a dying you will die.” RMT Was it an actual fruit that Chavah ate or were her eyes open to sinful sexual pleasures? The English words "good" and "evil" (or bad) do not completely convey the Hebraic meaning of the word tov and ra which are more related to the function of a person, place or thing rather than their appearance or morality as implied in the English. So, could we safely assume that the function of Chavah could have been a sexual one when she encountered Satan, because according to many ancient sources and the New Testament her first born son “Kayin” (Cain) was the offspring of the evil one!.



Kayin, was said to be "of the wicked one" (in I John 3:12).
According to certain teachings the serpent (Azazel, Nachash, and/or Sammael), seduce Chavah and she became pregnant and Kayin is the product of this union. 4:1 AND Adam knew Chavah his wife; and she conceived, and bare Kayin, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. 2 And she again bares his brother Abel. Here we can see that Kayin and Abel where twins because the word said that Adam knew his wife and bore the two sons. It was until Seth that Adam knew is wife again.
Nowhere in the Bible does it say that Kayin nor Abel were Adam's son, nor were they listed in any genealogies of Adam (Genesis 5:1) so where does this leave Abel? The book of Jude states that “Enoch also, the seventh from Adam”…." Jude 1:14. In order for Enoch to be consider seventh from Adam you must include Abel being righteous before YAHUWAH and his sacrifice was accepted surely YAHUWAH would not exclude Abel. Without Abel being counted Enoch would be the sixth from Adam but, on the other hand, when looking at Kayin, the scripture says that Kayin is said to be "of the wicked one" ( I John 3:12). The Bible even states the third son born to Chavah, Seth, was the first child born to her that actually resembled Adam (Genesis 5:3)! Could the first two offspring of the Bible possess the blood of someone else? Let’s look closer to examine the scriptures and other teachings, in the King James Version of 1611 of the bible and other books as well as a book called the Zohar also known as the (the Book of Splendor).
The Zohar was written in Castile in the last third of the 13th century and is first quoted in kabbalistic works after 1291. The main author of the work was R. Moses de Leon, but two sections, Ra'aya Mehemna ("Loyal Shepherd," meaning Moses) and Tikkuné ha-Zohar, were written by a later anonymous kabbalist early in the 14th century). One of the motives for its publication was messianic: the belief, founded in some sections of the Zohar itself, that the knowledge of the Zohar is part of the Messianic process. The Zohar joined the Bible and Talmud in the triad of the most sacred books of Judaism.

The Zohar states "... the members of the mixed multitude are the children of the primordial (Primordial: 1 a: first created or developed: primeval 1 b: existing in or persisting from the beginning) serpent that seduced Chavah (Eve) by the tree of knowledge of good and evil, so the mixed multitude is indeed the impurity that the serpent injected into Chavah. From this impurity, which is considered the mixed multitude, Kayin (Cain) came forth and slew Hevel (Abel)..." (The Zohar: 2 Beresheet a28)
This teaching is acknowledged by Genesis 15 and I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Those who have blood of the serpent and other fallen angels would go on to form what was known as "mixed multitudes". The conflict between the morals, religious beliefs, and ways of life of these mixed groups would continually oppose those who descended from Adam to this very day, for the reasons above. This would go on to form one of the most important conflicts in human history: Genesis 6:1 AND it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of YAHUWAH saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of YAHUWAH came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

When we look at Genesis 3 KJV 1611
Genesis 3:1.NOW the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD YAHUWAH had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath YAHUWAH said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, YAHUWAH hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For YAHUWAH doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as YAHUWAH, knowing good and evil. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Why did they cover themselves? What made Adam say that we were naked? What had happen that they became ashamed of their appearance and began to cover themselves. Was it that Chavah was covering her belly? Immediately following in Chapter 4 states that Adam knew his wife and she conceived.

4:1. AND Adam knew Chavah his wife; and she conceived, and bare Kayin, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

To many people this is proof positive Adam had sex with his wife, and was the father of Kayin. The word knew, if we examine the original Hebrew in this verse, does have the meaning of "sex" (which makes it easy to assume they copulated). This word, however, could also stand for something totally different.

The word knew actually comes from two Hebrew words: yada and eth. The word yada not only means to "have carnal sex with", but also "to recognize", "discern", and acknowledge". The word eth is untranslatable in English, but generally relates to "a sign", "a distinguishing mark", or "omen". From these other meanings, we could reconstruct the verse into the following:

"And Adam eventually acknowledged the distinguishing sign that had come upon Chavah..."Genesis 4:1 (KJV)

Also, the Hebrew word for conceived (in the above English translation) could mean "to already be with child". Put them all together and we gather another possible verse: Strong’s Concordance 2030 הָרָה harah (haw-reh') child (5), conceive (2), pregnant (3), pregnant woman (1), pregnant women (1), and woman with child (1), women (1), women who were with child (1), and women with child (1).

Having this understanding we could safely say that, "And Adam eventually acknowledged the distinguishing sign that had come upon Chavah; that she was with child, and realized she was about to give birth to Kayin..." Genesis 4:1 (KJV)

Now, let’s turn toward the rest of the scripture Genesis 4:1, I have gotten a man from the LORD. It possible to say that when Chavah saw Kayin she thought she had gotten him from somewhere beyond her world.

At this point, I will quote a few passages which most of the anti-seedliners claim are “Jewish” sources, and according to them should be discredited along with and including the Talmud. Inasmuch as the Torah & Old Testament are the first volume of the Talmud, then by their perverted line-of-reasoning we would have to discard the entire Old Testament from our Bibles. (How absurd!) First, in the Aramaic Targum (Aramaic was merely one of the languages which Messiah and his disciples knew), called pseudo-Jonathan, on Genesis 3:6, which is unique inasmuch as it identifies the angel Sammael as the “ serpent ”:

“And the woman saw Sammael, the angel of death, and she was afraid and knew that the tree was good for food, and that it was a remedy for the enlightenment of the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise. She took of its fruit and ate and also gave (it) to her husband and he ate.”

Again, they will also condemn the Aramaic Targum pseudo-Jonathan, on Genesis 4:1 “And Adam knew that his wife Chavah had conceived from Sammael the Angel (of death) and she became pregnant and bore Kayin. And he was like those on high and not like those below. And she said: ‘I have got a man from the angel of the LORD.”

This rendition of Genesis 4:1 is interesting, for it speaks of the “angel of death” plus “like those on high” and “like those below.” This seems to accord with John 8:23, where Yehushua told the Canaanite variety of “Jews”: “... Ye are from beneath; and I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.”

Satan was on high until his fall, when he fell like lightning; Luke 10:18. The Palestinian Targum to Genesis 4:1: “And Adam knew his wife Chavah, who had desired the Angel; and she conceived, and bare Kayin; and she said, I have acquired a man, the angel of the Lord ...”

In another Rabbinic work: Pirke de Rabbi Eliezer, 21: “And she saw that his likeness was not of earthly beings, but of the heavenly beings, and she prophesied and said: I have gotten a man from the Lord.”

It would appear from those references that the problem with Genesis 4:1 is an omission of some of the words of the Hebrew text. I will now quote Genesis 4:1 from the King James Version and I will add the potentially needed words in italics from the Targum of Jonathan so it will make some sense:

“And Adam knew his wife Chavah, who was pregnant by Sammael, and she conceived and bare Kayin, and he was like the heavenly beings, and not like earthly beings, and she said, I have gotten a man from the angel of the Lord.”

While one might not like the source of the Aramaic Targums, still he must concede that this evidence brings the Scriptures into context, and many Hebrew scholars recognize this. One such scholar is Clarke’s Commentary, volume 1, page 58, and he suggests
a contextual problem with Genesis 4:1 as opposed to 1 John 3:12, and being aware that the meaning of the Greek word “wicked ” in this instance means “ Satan ” says the following: “... Unless she had been under Divine inspiration she could not have called her son (even supposing him to be the promised seed) Jehovah; and that she was not under such an influence her mistake sufficiently proves, for Kayin, so far [remote] from being the Messiah, was of the wicked one; I John 3:12. Could it also mean that it was time for Kayin to be born, and Adam understood it? See how easily verses could be mistranslated when people assume they should say something a certain way?

As the rest of the verse states, Chavah exclaims: "I have gotten a man from the LORD" (Genesis 4:1). According to the New Jerusalem Translation, the verse translates from the Hebrew a little differently: "... I have gotten a man from an angel of the LORD."
"An angel of the LORD"- we must remember that when Chavah saw Satan it was before the curse in Genesis 3:14-15, he was in his original state,

According to the Book of Ezekiel 28 12-14 "Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord YAHUWAH; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty." 13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of YAHUWAH; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of YAHUWAH; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire."
So when Chavah looked upon Satan he was beautiful and his appearance was of the angel of light, he still had his wings and was a fallen angel of the garden (not a changed serpent yet), with this understanding one could make the statement true that Chavah said that “I have gotten a man for an angel of the Lord.” Apparently Chavah thought so because, Kayin apparently carried on the attributes of his father and was someone very significant. Also we must remember that the word of YAHUWAH says that it had not rained upon the earth because there was no man to till the ground and Kayin was a tiller of the ground. Lucifer was created perfect in all his ways, but iniquity was found in him.( this is found in Ezekiel 28:15 ) Like man, the angels were created perfect, and with a free will. Satan was lifted up because of his beauty; he corrupted the wisdom by reason of his brightness (This is in Ezekiel 28:17) this is why it was easy for Kayin to murder his brother Abel.
THE GENESIS 3:15 & 4:1 CONNECTION
Unless Genesis 4:1 is properly comprehended, one simply will not be able to grasp Genesis 3:14-15. Before delving into this second passage, let’s take a look at it in the KJV: “ 14 And YAHUWAH said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel

When revisiting Genesis 3:15 we see YAHUWAH setting into place, most important in prophecies of the Bible: The verse is a little complex; divided into two parts. First, it states the seeds (or descendants) of the serpent (mixed multitude are the children of the primordial serpent) will be at enmity with the seeds of Chavah. The serpent's seed would form into one bloodline, Adam's pure, whole seed into another

The second part simply was a prediction about Yehushua himself, and how he (a member of Chavah's seed) would eventually bruise the serpent's head, but members of the serpent seed would only be able to bruise the heel of Yehushua. In other words, by crucifying him on the cross, there would be descendants of the serpent who would only be able to bruise Jesus’ "heel", but Yehushua would become victorious in the end. By raising himself from the dead, Yehushua would defeat the serpent's curse of death on the world, and rectify the curse of death Adam and Chavah brought to the world - he would crush the serpent's power, or head.

If Yehushua was from the true seed of Adam and Chavah, which the Bible clearly stated, then this prophecy would be fulfilled upon his death, burial and resurrection. The seeds of the serpent, throughout history, would possess an enmity with the blood line that would lead to Yehushua and his teachings from then on. If Kayin (and probably others) indeed had the blood (or seed) of the serpent then his descendants would, naturally, be up in arms against anything that is truly, purely, of Yehushua, and of YAHUWAH.

Our Identity and Our Name

It is interesting and enlightening to find out the meaning of a "name." I was doing some research and found out that, the name that some of my ancestors loved and some despised really meant the same thing in later times. The name happens to be Negro. In the days following captivity many freed chattel slaves were called "Negros" which just happens to mean "black". Of course we all know that a large majority of freed chattel slaves were, and retained their natural black or very dark brown skin color. Although there were also a large number of chattel slaves who were of various light brown to white complexions, they were also classified as Negros. They were not thought of as whites because they belonged to the chattel slave class even though they were of mixed heritage with some being able to pass as whites themselves they were not able to acculturate into mainstream society right after the emancipation, unless they received help from their father’s who had the ability to send them either to the East Coast or Europe where they could make a new start. The variation in their skin color occurred as a result of the continued generational rape of female slaves by the plantation owners during this time period. By the time of the 1960's and the civil rights movement, American's who were the descendants of those freed chattel slaves no longer wanted to be called Negros or Coloreds, but preferred simply to be called “black”. Later in more recent times "Blacks in America have chosen to be called "African Americans" because we were told continually that we were Africans. Many older Blacks do not like this name “African American” and still prefer to be called Blacks”, “Colored”, or Negro depending on their age group. However, academically the name African American is used as the politically correct term when speaking of the group as a whole.

Very recently I have come to understand that neither of these names is correct for the group of people that I belong to. According to Deuteronomy 28 and Leviticus 26 we are the rebellious house of Judah, and we were taken captive into Egypt in ships ie. “And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you. Deuteronomy 28:68
( ie. the Transatlantic Slave Ships). The proper name for our group is Hebrews or the descendants of Jacob. It always bothered me when I read that HAM was the father of the black races excluding the "NEGRO". It also always bothered me when I read or heard historical documentaries about Africans in Africa and always the narrator was clear to point out that these African tribes were not the "negro". At first I was offended because I saw black people and assumed that I had to fit into on of those African groups at least by ancestry right? Wrong. HAM the youngest some of NOAH was the progenitor of the black races it says in the Zondervan Bible dictionary, those nations being: ancient Egypt (Mizraim), Ethiopia (Cush), Phut (Lybia) and Canaan (The Canaanites of the Scriptures). But the Zondervan Bible dictionary is very clear that HAM was “NOT” the progenitor of the "NEGRO" And we know that Japheth who was the progenitor of the White races was definitely not the progenitor of the "NEGRO" Then it only stands to reason that the Negro is the Hebrew that comes from the family of SHEM-through his son Arphacshad("healer," "releaser") אַרְפַּכְשַׁד- his son Shelach-his son Ever(Hebrew)-his son Peleg-his son Re'U-his son S'rug-his son Nachor-his son Avram(Avraham)-his son Yitzack-his son Jaacoq-his son Judah progenitor of the (Negro's of today.) But when you read the curses that the Father put upon us for our rebellious deeds, here in Deuteronomy 28:37 “And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee”. This verse explains the reason why no one has been able to call us by or true names around the world. There is no other nation on the earth that has continually been redefined by a name. But there is a very bright spot of hope at the end of all this tragedy. The Father is awakening his people, we are recognizing who we are, and whose we are and are beginning to fulfill 2 Chronicles 7:14. He has made an everlasting covenant with our father Avraham and had promised to turn our captivity. So in the restoration of Israel the Father will heal us of our backslidings, give us a new heart and put His spirit in us, and we will again be known by our true name. This gives me so much hope. He will also gather those nations that love and serve Him and add us together and give us all a new name. Blessings and Shalom

The History of Ethiopian Jewry

Piecing together legends and stories.
By Atira Winchester

A Jewish community in Ethiopia--the Beta Israel (House of Israel)--has existed for at least 15 centuries.


Because of low literacy levels, a tendency to rely on oral traditions, and nomadic lifestyles among most Ethiopians prior to the 20th century, historic material about this community is scant and unreliable. However, a tentative story can be pieced together from written records of Ethiopian rulers as well as testimony from the Beta Israel themselves.

Origins of the Community
Most likely, the Beta Israel arrived in Ethiopia between the first and sixth centuries, coming as merchants or artisans from various countries in the region.

Scholars once believed that during the Middle Ages the Beta Israel were a homogeneous group living under unified, autonomous Jewish rule. Yet new discoveries have shown that the truth is far more complex. It seems the Ethiopian Jewish community was for the most part fragmented both physically and religiously, with each Beta Israel village appointing its own spiritual and secular leaders. There was little contact between Beta Israel communities, and usually no overarching leadership uniting them.

Sometimes the Beta Israel were treated well by the Ethiopian monarchy, but at other times they suffered persecution. Many fellow Ethiopians refer to the Beta Israel as falasha (a derogatory term meaning outsider), In 1624, the ruling king's army captured many Ethiopian Jews, forced them to be baptized, and denied them the right to own land. According to local legend, some members of the Beta Israel chose suicide over conversion

PERSONAL COMMENT By Batyah:
It is amazing that whenever a person of dark color is concerned, they are always written of in a slightly negative, if not fully negative light. That is why we need more Hebrew writers telling our story so that we can get a better understanding of the truth. That is my personal Opinion. Blessings and Shalom!

Black Othodox Jewish Man Paves the Way in Israel for Barack Obama.

By In News Today on Friday, May 6th, 2011 | Comments Off
Black Jew Paving the Way in Israel for Obama?

I found this interesting article which didn't get much press in the maintream media. Yeshiyah Amariel is an Orthodox Jew and not a Hebrew Isrealite.

Yeshiyah Amariel, a recognized Orthodox Jew of Hispanic (Cherokee) American descent, is all about Torah, unity and support for Israel. His slender form, Chassidic styled black suit, black hat, and dark skin to match would give the first impression that he was a Black Hebrew or Ethiopian Jew, but there is much more to him than meets the eye.

He is a contributor to AIPAC, member of United Jewish Communities, and has also lived in Israel for several years as a volunteer for an Israeli archaeologist, the Nature and Park Authority and other worthy causes. He has been involved in translations of artifacts and excavations of Tel Arad, which is considered the only archaeologically discovered “BYT-YHWH” in Israel, and received recommendations from colleagues to attend any university in the country to become an archaeologist. He is also currently studying to take exams to receive semicha from the Chief rabbinic’s office in Israel.

Amariel’s family are among the Native American tribes that many historical figures, such as the 1800s Jew Mordecai Noah, regarded as brothers to the Jewish people and a lost tribe of Israel.

In 2005 Yeshiyah’s father was published in a Jerusalem Post article by Sheera Frenkel that traced their family’s Jewish links through Cherokee roots and also spoke concerning his translation of the ancient Hebrew Tanakh into English (referred to as the first of its kind). Howshua Amariel (Yeshiyah’s father) is also a rabbi who sits on a Torah-based judicial committee of black Jews with Rabbi Capers C. Funnye Jr., cousin of Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama (Senator Barack Obama’s wife).

In our interview, Yeshiyah Amariel claimed that his grandfather knew Senator Obama back when he was originally running for the Illinois State senate. Amariel added “My grandfather told us that we should support Obama because he has good intentions. And given Obama’s record of support toward Israel since he has been in the US Senate, I was inclined to agree with my grandfather.” “From my work, I have received letters of recommendations from Rabbis, Jewish community leaders, and Orthodox Israeli Jews in support of my goals to become an official rabbi in the State; but it wasn’t easy” said Amariel, stating that it took years for them to know that he was sincere in his objectives.

He imagined that the same would be for Obama and decided to offer his assistance. So Amariel called the Obama Headquarters in Chicago and volunteered directly with officials and offered his aid to anything he and other supporters in Israel could give. “When we called the operators were excited to hear from Americans calling from Israel to volunteer for the movement for change.” “From then I got in contact with Obama’s Mid-East and Jewish advisor Eric Lynn and let him know that we were starting this ‘campaign’ in Israel to support Obama. I also urged him that Obama should consider a visit to Israel and if he did we would be there to show our support.”

On the political scene, Amariel is a member of Democrats Abroad in Israel, and the lead manager and strategist for the “Israel for Obama” campaign started in Israel. His group of American Israelis helped comfort Jews and Israelis to the idea of an Obama presidency and organize Americans living in Israel to vote for Barack Obama. One of the members of the group Samson Altman-Schevitz also lived in Chicago and knew Michelle Obama when she served as the Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago.

They have a blog on Obama’s official page, but beside that Yeshiyah is also a member of other pro-Obama Jewish groups in the United States like Orthodox Jews for Obama and Jews for Obama (whom have supported their efforts in Israel). After Senator Obama’s visit to Israel, Yeshiyah and his group have received letters of cooperation with DA Israel chair Joanne Yaron and DNC supported Middle-East regional director Bob Barad in Italy.


Amariel also has written and received at least two letters from the Senator concerning his positions on Iran (Sanction bills passed), Israel (his commit to their continued aid) and the Palestinian conflict (to abstain from additional fighting that could prevent the peace process). Yeshiyah hopes to provide the Israeli people with a direct link to the Illinois senator to better understand his positions when concerning Israel and the Jewish people. He also wants to establish this connection for average Israelis to express their views from the grassroots.

“We interview American Israelis all over Israel” stated Amariel as he referred to their ‘IsraelforObama’ YouTube Channel. “…the number one reason why most Jews we talk to have a good opinion of Obama is because of the idea of unity within his campaign’s message.

Some believe that kind of idea of harmony may be what the Middle East could use to become peaceful. I believe it’s what should be used to bring Jews together around our common goals.”

Why is Obama so popular and how did he make it to the White house so easily? Is he really a Hebrew that made it through the struggle, or is he related to Edom, judge for yourself.

Shalom and wlecome to another post from The Joy of Torah!
For many it is refreshing to see a man of color in the white house, it opens the possibility that every nation that is represented in this melting pot can one day have a chance to “sit on the throne” and uphold the principals of this Babylonian style government. But there are some hidden things that most Americans don’t understand. Some where in the creed of just who can rule, I was taught in school that the President of he U.S. had to be a W.A.S.P. (White, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant) Humm, very interesting! I was also taught that you where the same nationality as your father. But I do know that the only place where your nationality is determined by your mother’s ancestry is among the Jewish people. Who is Barack Obama really???

Did he have help from family members in high places?? Can you see the joy in the faces of Goerge W. Bush and Dick Cheney?
How about in this phots?
If you didn't know already Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are all related:They are Cousins

A Message to the Hebrew Community

In Regards to the the New Posted videos to all my Hebrew brothers and sisters who are seeking the truth of the Father's Word!

I came across this site as I was doing some study about end time prophecy. This is a good teaching concerning the United States in Biblical prophecy. A message to the Hebrew community let us be very careful not to lay blame and anger because of our captivity. We are called to acknowledge our sin, repent and return. The Father will not spare any of us if we do not live clean holy lives. We are called to repair the breech, bring healing to the sick, giving bread to the hungry, comforting those that mourn. We are not called to point fingers at the “belt” because we were chastised. That is still a form of our rebellious nature. We are to study to show ourselves approved unto Yahuwah so that we may rightly divide the word of Truth.-2 timothy 2:15

Too many of us are preaching a hate message against a particular group of people, but many of us keep labeling all people who share characteristics of that group. We must be clear when we are talking about the seed of the serpent that we do not make other people feel condemned who are not in any way connected to that line.

I don’t believe that it the way of our Father. Vengeance is mine says Yahuwah, I will repay. We don have to repay; we have to REPENT and pray!

Hebrews let's wake up, shake off our slumber and be about the Father's business! There are a lot of people hurting out there and we can show them the richness of the love of Yahuwah and how he has come to each one of us gently to remove the scales from our eyes.

The Bread of Heaven

Trust in Yahuwah with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding.. Proverbs 3:5

I just listened to a very long testimony on Bill Schnoebelen through the biblical hebrews of the bible blog talk raido program. He was talking about his former lifestytle when he was practicing witchcraft. The focus was to show how the scripture contradicts his testimony that he is now walking with the Most High becuase he is the chosen seed of Israel. It also brought out clearity that all around us there are people who are deeply involved in very serious satanic worship. This kind of teaching just reinforces the foundation of the truth that we must keep our hearts and minds pure and continue to keep the commandments of Yahuwah. Yahushuah said His commandments are not grievous, His yoke is easy, and His burden is light. Yahushua also forewarned us by telling us in the parable of the wheat and the tares Matthew 13:25 and mentioning the wolves in sheeps clothing in Matthew 7:15. We should not be alarmed by these evil practices of people around us, but we should be aware that they do exist. The kingdom that we are being prepared for will not tolerate any person or being that is not under the headship of the Messiah. Therefore I am very encouraged and strenghtened to know the the Father in heaven has alreadly made a provision for us through his son Yahushuah, this is our blessing this is our faith, and this is our Shalom. Yahusuah is the bread of heaven, let us partake and be filled

Messianic Communities & The Star of David

INTRODUCTORY LETTER,
Sunday, May 08, 2011

Dear Messianic Communities, Hi my name is Eliana Batyah and I would like to take a few moments of your time to clarify your understanding on the meaning of the Star of David/Shield of David in your printed material, websites and other identifying literature that reflect your congregation and affiliation with the Hebrew Scriptures.

First I make the claim that the use of the six pointed symbol representing Israel today is none other than a deception of satanic influence. In the past I was ignorant and unaware that this symbol was evil. I too thought it represented solidarity with Israel and her returning people. After researching the internet and other sources, I have found out that it really has nothing to do with the biblical aspects of Israel or the biblical Hebrews or King David of old.

Second I would also like to influence you away from using the star on anything connected with your congregation, your worship practice, websites and flags or printed literature. Instead of trying to convince you with my clever words, I have copied the page with the relevant links directly from Wikipedia for you to do you own search and draw your own conclusions. May the most high, Yahuwah bless you and keep you. Shalom

Star of David
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is about the use of the hexagram as a Jewish symbol. For other uses, see Hexagram.
"Jewish Star" redirects here. For the newspaper, see The Jewish Star.

The Star of David , known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David (Hebrew מָגֵן דָּוִד; Biblical Hebrew Māḡēn Dāwīḏ, Tiberian [mɔˈɣen dɔˈvið], Modern Hebrew [maˈɡen daˈvid], Ashkenazi Hebrew and Yiddish Mogein Dovid [ˈmɔɡeɪn ˈdɔvid] or Mogen Dovid) is a generally recognized symbol of Jewish identity and Judaism.[1]
Its shape is that of a hexagram, the compound of two equilateral triangles. The hexagram has been in use as a symbol of Judaism since the 17th century, with precedents in the 14th to 16th centuries in Central Europe, where the Shield of David was partly used in conjunction with the Seal of Solomon (the hexagram) on Jewish flags. Its use probably derives from medieval (11th to 13th century) Jewish protective amulets (segulot).
The term "Shield of David" is also used in the Siddur (Jewish prayer book) as a title of the God of Israel.
History
The precise origin of the use of the hexagram as a Jewish symbol remains unknown, but it apparently emerged in the context of medieval Jewish protective amulets (segulot). One understanding is that the symbol represents the 12/13 months of the lunisolar calendar that keeps seasons synchronized with the lunar cycle, in distinction from the lunar calendar (common to the Islamic culture) in which seasons drift. The Jewish Encyclopedia cites a 12th-century Karaite document as the earliest Jewish literary source to mention the symbol.[2]
Early use as an ornament


The Star of David in the oldest surviving complete copy of the Masoretic text, the Leningrad Codex, dated 1008.
The hexagram does appear occasionally in Jewish contexts since antiquity, apparently as a decorative motif. For example, in Israel, there is a stone bearing a hexagram from the arch of a 3–4th century synagogue in the Galilee.[3] A supposed Shield of David has been noted on a Jewish tombstone at Taranto, in Southern Italy, which may date as early as the third century CE.[4]
Originally, the hexagram may have been employed as an architectural ornament on synagogues, as it is, for example, on the cathedrals of Brandenburg and Stendal, and on the Marktkirche at Hanover. A pentagram in this form is found on the ancient synagogue at Tell Hum. In the synagogues, perhaps, it was associated with the mezuzah.
The use of the hexagram in a Jewish context as a possibly meaningful symbol may occur as early as the 11th century, in the decoration of the carpet page of the famous Tanakh manuscript, the Leningrad Codex dated 1008. Similarly, the symbol illuminates a medieval Tanakh manuscript dated 1307 belonging to Rabbi Yosef bar Yehuda ben Marvas from Toledo, Spain. A Siddur dated 1512 from Prague displays a large hexagram on the cover with the phrase, "... He will merit to bestow a bountiful gift on anyone who grasps the Shield of David."[5]
Origin of the name


Star on a window
The name 'Shield of David' was used by at least the 11th century as a title of the God of Israel, independent of the use of the symbol. The phrase occurs independently as a Divine title in the Siddur, the traditional Jewish prayer book, where it poetically refers to the Divine protection of ancient King David and the anticipated restoration of his dynastic house, perhaps based on Psalm 18, which is attributed to David, and in which God is compared to a shield (v. 31 and v. 36). The term occurs at the end of the "Samkhaynu/Gladden us" blessing, which is recited after the reading of the Haftara portion on Saturday and holidays.[6]
The earliest known text related to Judaism which mentions a sign called the "Shield of David" is Eshkol Ha-Kofer by the Karaite Judah Hadassi, in the mid-12th century CE:
"Seven names of angels precede the mezuzah: Michael, Gabriel, etc. ... Tetragrammaton protect you! And likewise the sign, called the 'Shield of David', is placed beside the name of each angel."[7]
This book is of Karaite, and not of Rabbinic Jewish origin; and that it does not describe the shape of the sign in any way.
Kabbalistic use


Page of segulot in a mediaeval Kabbalistic grimoire (Sefer Raziel HaMalakh, 13th century)
Medieval Kabbalistic grimoires show hexagrams among the tables of segulot, but without identifying them as "Shield of David".
In the Renaissance Period, in the 16th-century Land of Israel, the book Ets Khayim conveys the Kabbalah of Ha-Ari (Rabbi Isaac Luria) who arranges the traditional items on the seder plate for Passover into two triangles, where they explicitly correspond to Jewish mystical concepts. The six sfirot of the masculine Zer Anpin correspond to the six items on the seder plate, while the seventh sfira being the feminine Malkhut corresponds to the plate itself.[8][9][10]
However, these seder-plate triangles are parallel, one above the other, and do not actually form a hexagram,.[11]
According to G.S. Oegema (1996)
Isaac Luria provided the Shield of David with a further mystical meaning. In his book Etz Chayim he teaches that the elements of the plate for the Seder evening have to be placed in the order of the hexagram: above the three sefirot "Crown", "Wisdom", and "Insight", below the other seven.[12]
Similarly, M. Costa[year needed][page needed] wrote that M. Gudemann and other researchers in the 1920s claimed that Isaac Luria was influential in turning the Star of David into a national Jewish emblem by teaching that the elements of the plate for the Seder evening have to be placed in the order of the hexagram Gershom Scholem (1990) disagrees with this view, arguing that Isaac Luria talked about parallel triangles one beneath the other and not about the hexagram.[13]
The Star of David at least since the 20th century remains associated with the number seven and thus with the Menorah, and popular accounts[unreliable source?] associate it with he six directions of space plus the center (under the influence of the description of space found in the Sefer Yetsira: Up, Down, East, West, South, North, and Center), or the Six Sefirot of the Male (Zeir Anpin) united with the Seventh Sefirot of the Female (Nukva).[14]
Jewish flags
In 1354, King of Bohemia Charles IV prescribed for the Jews of Prague a red flag with both David's shield and Solomon's seal, while the red flag with which the Jews met King Matthias of Hungary in the 15th century showed two pentagrams with two golden stars.[15] The pentagram, therefore, may also have been used among the Jews as early as the year 1073.[16]
In 1460, the Jews of Ofen (Budapest, Hungary) received King Matthias Corvinus with a red flag on which were two Shields of David and two stars. In the first Hebrew prayer book, printed in Prague in 1512, a large Shield of David appears on the cover. In the colophon is written: "Each man beneath his flag according to the house of their fathers... and he will merit to bestow a bountiful gift on anyone who grasps the Shield of David." In 1592, Mordechai Maizel was allowed to affix "a flag of King David, similar to that located on the Main Synagogue" on his synagogue in Prague. In 1648, the Jews of Prague were again allowed a flag, in acknowledgment of their part in defending the city against the Swedes. On a red background was a yellow Shield of David, in the center of which was a Swedish star.[17]
As a symbol of Judaism


A recruitment poster published in American Jewish magazines during WWI. Daughter of Zion (representing the Jewish people): Your Old New Land must have you! Join the Jewish regiment.
In the 17th century, the Shield of David as the hexagram began to represent the Jewish community generally, when the Jewish quarter of Vienna was formally distinguished from the rest of the city by a boundary stone having the hexagram on one side and the Christian cross on the other. By the 18th century, the Shield appeared to represent the Jewish people in both secular (politics) and religious (synagogue) contexts. The Star of David can be found on the tombstones of religious Jews in Europe since the 18th century. Following Jewish emancipation after the French revolution, Jewish communities chose the Star of David to represent themselves, comparable to the cross used by most Christians.[citation needed] Then in the 19th century, it began to signify the Jewish people internationally, when the early Zionist movement adopted it as the symbol of the Jewish people, after the Dreyfus affair in France in the 19th century. From here, other Jewish community organizations adopted it too.
The Holocaust


The yellow badge
A Star of David, often yellow-colored, was used by the Nazis during the Holocaust as a method of identifying Jews. After the German invasion of Poland in 1939 there were initially different local decrees forcing Jews to wear a distinct sign – in the General Government e.g. a white armband with a blue Star of David on it, in the Warthegau a yellow badge in the form of a Star of David on the left side of the breast and on the back. If a Jew was found without wearing the star in public, they could be subjected to severe punishment. The requirement to wear the Star of David with the word Jude (German for Jew) inscribed was then extended to all Jews over the age of 6 in the Reich and the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia (by a decree issued on September 1, 1941 signed by Reinhard Heydrich [18]) and was gradually introduced in other German-occupied areas.
Modern use
The flag of Israel, depicting a blue Star of David on a white background, between two horizontal blue stripes was adopted on October 28, 1948, five months after the country's establishment. The origins of the flag's design date from the First Zionist Congress in 1897; the flag has subsequently been known as the "flag of Zion".
Contemporary use


A synagogue in Karlsruhe, Germany, with the outline of a Star of David
Some Orthodox Jewish groups reject the use of the Jewish Star of David because of its association with magic. Neturei Karta and Satmar reject it because they associate it with Zionism.
The vast majority of Spanish and Portuguese Jews do not use the star either. This probably reflects the trends before the forced conversion in Portugal and also its use is Spain. Their symbols are connected with the survival from the Inquisition, like the bird Phoenix.
Many Modern Orthodox synagogues, and many synagogues of other Jewish movements, however, have the Israeli flag with the Star of David prominently displayed at the front of the synagogues near the Ark containing the Torah scrolls.


The Magen David Adom emblem
Magen David Adom (MDA) (Red Star of David or, translated literally, Red Shield of David) is Israel's only official emergency medical, disaster, ambulance service. It is an official member of the International Committee of the Red Cross since June 2006. According to the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Magen David Adom was boycotted by the International Committee of the Red Cross, which refused to grant the organization membership because "it was ... argued that having an emblem used by only one country was contrary to the principles of universality."[19] Other commentators said the ICRC did not recognize the medical and humanitarian use of this Jewish symbol, a Red Shield, alongside the Christian cross and the Muslim crescent.[20]
Athletes
Jewish major league baseball player Gabe Kapler had a Star of David tattooed on his left calf in 2000, with the words "strong-willed" and "strong-minded", major leaguer Mike "SuperJew" Epstein drew a Star of David on his baseball glove, and major leaguer Ron Blomberg had a Star of David emblazoned in the knob of his bat which is on display at the Baseball Hall of Fame.[21][22][23][24][25][26] NBA basketball star Amar'e Stoudemire, who says he is spiritually and culturally Jewish,[27] had a Star of David tattoo put on his left hand in 2010.[28][29] NFL football defensive end Igor Olshansky has Star of David tattoos on each side of his neck, near his shoulders.[30][31][32]
Jewish world light heavyweight world champion boxer Mike "The Jewish Bomber" Rossman fought with a Star of David embroidered on his boxing trunks, and also has a blue Star of David tattoo on the outside of his right calf.[33][34][35][36] World heavyweight boxing champion Max Baer fought with a Star of David on his trunks as well, notably, for the first time as he knocked out Nazi Germany hero Max Schmeling in 1933; Hitler never permitted Scmheling to fight a Jew again. Other boxers who fought with Stars of David embroidered on their trunks to reflect their ethno-religious pride included world lightweight champion Benny "the Ghetto Wizard" Leonard (who said he felt as though he was fighting for all Jews), world light heavyweight boxing champion Battling Levinsky, Barney Ross (world champion as a lightweight, as a junior welterweight, and as a welterweight), world flyweight boxing champion Victor "Young" Peres ("Young"), and more recently World Boxing Association super welterweight champion Yuri Foreman.[37][33][38][39][40][41][42] Welterweight Dmitriy Salita even boxes under the nickname "Star of David".[43]
Teams


Béla Guttmann, footballer for Hakoah Vienna
Hakoah Vienna was a Jewish sports club founded in Vienna, Austria, in 1909 whose teams competed with the Star of David on the chest of their uniforms, and won the 1925 Austrian League soccer championship.[44] Similarly, The Philadelphia Sphas basketball team in Philadelphia (whose name was an acronym of its founding South Philadelphia Hebrew Association) wore a large Star of David on their jerseys to proudly proclaim their Jewish identity, as they competed in the first half of the 20th century.[45][46][47][48] Maccabi clubs still use the Star of David in their emblems.[49]
