Topic # 1 Making Mountains Out of Molehills

The descendants of Ishmael currently occupy at least 800 times more land than descendants of Isaac. The 21 states of the Arab League routinely announce plans of building expansion. In Saudi Arabia alone, 555,000 housing units were built over the past several years. Ruth R. Wisse.
All nations ruled by Islam are, by definition, apartheid. All non-Muslims are segregated as second class citizens. Freedom of religion and speech is outlawed by Sharia law. Israel represents the antithesis of apartheid. James M. Hutchens-both quotes from: The Jerusalem Connection.
Topic #2 $12 Billion to PA—Where Did It Go?
Dr. Ghania Malhis, chair of the Economic Policy Research Institute in Ramallah, addressed the UN’s Seminar on Assistance to the Palestinians last week. She estimated foreign countries had donated a total of $12 billion to the PA since 1995. That figure did not include billions of dollars in aid provided by international aid groups such as UNRWA. Aid to the PA is increasing steadily. It received an average of one billion dollars a year between 2001 and 2005, $1.5 billion in 2007, $1.8 billion in 2009, and an estimated $2 billion is anticipated in 2010. And yet, Malhis said, after such enormous sums, the GDP is 13% lower than it was in 1999, and GDP per capita is down by 30%. “The Palestinian Authority has failed to address allegations of misuse of funds, power and mismanagement as well as a lack of accountability and transparency,” (INN) The leech has two daughters. ‘Give! Give!’ they cry. Proverbs 30:15 (JNN News).
They will call Jerusalem The Throne of Yahweh and all nations will gather in Jerusalem to honor the name of Yahweh” … “Yahweh
Almighty will shield Jerusalem; he will shield it and deliver it, he will pass over it and will rescue it.” … “If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill. May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not consider Jerusalem my highest joy. Jeremiah 3:17; Isaiah 31:5; Ps. 137:5-6
