Paying Lip Service to Jerusalem

On July 30th, 1980, the State of Israel passed the Basic Law: Jerusalem, Capital of Israel, which legislated that,

Jerusalem, complete and united, is the capital of Israel.

As the State of Israel prepares, this coming year, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the liberation of Jerusalem, consider the following,

Costa Rica opens its embassy in Tel Aviv after closing Jerusalem mission

Costa Rica opened its embassy in Tel Aviv Friday, relocating its diplomatic mission after 24 years in Jerusalem, the foreign minister said in a statement...

Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its capital, but most nations don't formally recognize that claim. Since 1982, Costa Rica and El Salvador have been the only two countries with embassies there. In August, both countries announced their decisions to relocate to Tel Aviv.

"It's time to rectify a historical error that damages us on the international level and deprives us of any friendship with the Arab world," Arias said at the time.

Israel criticized the decision, saying it could be interpreted as a surrender to terrorism.

Why should anyone, Jew and non-Jew alike, take the State of Israel seriously in their repeated declarations that "Jerusalem, complete and united, is the capital of Israel" when the State of Israel doesn't seem to be overly concerned that by the end of 2006 not a single country with whom the State of Israel has diplomatic relations will have their embassies based in Jerusalem?

Why would any country recognize a UN created imperialist land-grab like Apartheid Israel when the whole world knows that without Uncle Sam's welfare checks, the Zionist colony wouldn't even exist?

You are absolutely correct. Why should any country respect our designation of Jerusalem as our capital when we do not demand or earn that respect!

The other day, the PA prime minister announced again that neither Hamas nor the PA would give up one piece of Palestine or recognoze Israel's right to exist. At about the same time, our ignorant Prime Minister Olmert rushes to announce how much land Israel will give away to the Arabs.

Israel does not cherish the land as much as the Arabs do and is not willing to sacrifice for it. Perhaps that failure and the general approach of the Olmert government are the reasons that
G-d has not allowed it to rain.

Consider:
The missing element in every human 'solution' is
an accurate definition of the creature.

The way we define 'human' determines our view of self,
others, relationships, institutions, life, and future. Many
problems in human experience are the result of false
and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised
in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by
nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of
Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive
characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
foundation of his environments, institutions, and re-
spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien-
ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the
universe.

That human institution which is structured on the
principle, "...all men are endowed by their Creator with
...Liberty...," is a system with its roots in the natural
Order of the universe. The opponents of such a system are
necessarily engaged in a losing contest with nature and
nature's God. Biblical principles are still today the
foundation under Western Civilization and the American
way of life. To the advent of a new season we commend the
present generation and the "multitudes in the valley of
decision."

Let us proclaim it. Behold!
The Season of Generation-Choicemaker Joel 3:14 KJV

The cowering of the West in the face of Islamic pressure is indeed shocking.
