Christian Embassy director: «The US policy on Jerusalem is an absurdity»

«US policy on Jerusalem has long been a morass of legal absurdity. For an American citizens born here, the US State Department simply stamps their passports as «Jerusalem» refusing to also designate it as being in «Israel».

David Parsons is the Media director in the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem, and an American Citizen.

«Its an astonishing fact that Washington has never recognized any part of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Though US officials meet with their Israeli counterparts there all the time, even the predominantly Jewish western side of town has never been granted de jure recognition».

Is a special appeal for Christians all over World to support Jerusalem as the non-dividable capital of Israel, Parsons write:

«This position has essentially granted the Arabs a veto over the US power of recognition, when in turn influences the views of other nations worldwide regarding the Israeli capital. And the sad truth is that the longer the “Question” of Jerusalem has been left open, the larger that question has become. It has reached the point that claims which did not even exist before the city’s reunification in 1967 are now attaching to her, and Jerusalem has become the capital of everyone else except the Jews».

Capital of the Arab world? Capital of Islam?

«The Arabs and Muslims had centuries to make Jerusalem their capital, but never did. It was always considered a ‘backwater’ provincial town when in Arab or Muslim hands, as evidenced by the fact that only one Muslim ruler visited Jerusalem during the two decades it was in Jordanian hands from 1948 through 1967».

«The city has truly been the capital of only one nation – the Jewish commonwealth – based on an historical, spiritual and cultural attachment that dates back 3,000 years. Sure, it served as the capital of a short-lived Crusader kingdom, but no matter what Fatah says, there are no Christians seriously clamoring to revive that claim today – at least not yet».

  1. Once I suspected that WordPress censored my articles, I went back and looked to see how far back it went. I looked through 26 pages of articles to see if they’d deleted all my entries ….. I searched for the word “Examiner”. It wasn’t there.

    Convinced then, I decided to search farther ….. I went back to a year and a half before, yet I doubted that they’d have deleted everything. I was wrong; they had.

    They’d scrubbed the whole site of my “controversial” blogs. Previously, before I was being paid to write a column for an online publication, I’d gone back to verify that the articles I wrote could be found ….. Sure enough; they had been there, but they’re not now, and I developed a number of regular readers.

    Now though, after I resumed writing, and my “T-Bagger” / anti-Obama philosophy became clear, it was all gone! Scrubbed from the net. I’d searched for things that shouldn’t have elicited the “scrubbing” – words like “examiner” and “Jerusalem Post” – which is why I’m posting this here – for you to be aware ….. or rather ….. “BEWARE of”

    This was disturbing because not too long before, I’d warned people I worked with, that I’d found a site on George Soros’ group that he finances called “Open Society”. The study published on the net was about how despotic nations control the the internet!

    Now, I found I’m censored ….. I don’t know, I’ve not bothered to research it yet, but the WordPress blog looks just like Blogs owned by Google and they were accused of censorship if they opposed Obama in the 2008 election.

    My blog, if you’re interested …. you can find me at http:josiahe.wordpress.com Check it out yourself. Search for some of the key words. You’ll not find me listed ….

    This could be you!
