The 2014 CJUI Genesis Awards

The 2014 CJUI Genesis Awards on Sunday, October19 was a wonderful event. Each year, CJUI selects a nationally recognized individual of integrity who has demonstrated courageous leadership and enduring love for Israel, to speak at our Genesis Award Program and to receive our thanks. This year our honoree and keynote speaker was Pulitzer Prize winner and Foreign Affairs editor of the Wall Street Journal, Bret Stephens. His courageous leadership in defense of Israel and steadfast voice in support of Israel’s rights as an independent sovereign Jewish State resonates throughout the international community and inspires all who value our shared Judeo Christian values.


A VIP Luncheon preceeded the Genesis Awards honoring CJUI President, Rev. Fumio and Elaine Taku. Special guests, Consul General Yehuda Yaakov, university students, ardent Christian Zionist Chloé Simone Valdary, and writer, activist Daniel Mael helped make this day a memorable event.

Celebrating United Jerusalem Day
in Newton Centre, MA on Sunday, June 1




Statements from participants

What a spectacular event.

Wonderful day and the wonderful people

This was an amazing day of celebration and parade!!!

Wonderful event done by volunteers! I loved the concert, the
speeches, the entertainment and most important the people.



In historic Newton, at the heart of the Centre common, a first of a kind festival occurred on the brilliantly sunny Sunday, June 1st.  Throughout the day, close to 2,000 came from as far as NH, RI and CT to participate in the United Jerusalem Celebration and Parade. 

From the inspired speeches, to the Hebrew dancers, music, songs, face painting, balloon twisting, rides and food, people of every age, ethnicity and background poured in through the towering balloon arch and across the green to celebrate the anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of Israel. Complementing the activities was the presence of sponsor organizations offering pro-Israel information as well as  opportunities to volunteer in Israel. The messages throughout the day testified of Jerusalem’s 5,000 year history and the living story of the Jewish people.

CJUI thanks the Newton community and all the enthusiastic volunteers for a splendid, joyous and meaningful day.



Thank you to the great sponsors!

Powerful Pro-Zionist Speech



Myths and Facts
Eli E. Hertz
Princeton University professor of Semitic literature Philip Hitti (1886-1978), one of the greatest Arabic historians of the ninth century and author of ‘The History of the Arabs,’ testifying on behalf of the Arab cause, told the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry on Palestine in 1946: “There is no ‘Palestine’ in history, absolutely not.”

At the UN where Israel is constantly under condemnation, see the response to this horrific listing of human rights abuses in other nations.
"Mr. President, if it “inappropriate” to speak about the urgent need to take action for victims of human rights violations around the world, then why are we here?"
UN Watch Executive Director Hillel Neuer



UPDATED: Anti-Israel Ads on Boston Public Transit System
Updated – Violence ad debunked
A new series of false and inflammatory anti-Israel ads have begun running on the Boston public transit system, known as the MBTA. The ads, which are well-done technically, recycle the usual discredited charges, such as alleged Israeli apartheid and alleged theft of "Palestinian" land.
They are sponsored by a new Cambridge-based organization calling itself Ads Against Apartheid, which is associated with the site It is Apartheid.  Continue.........

How to fight academic bigotry  
By Charles Krauthammer

For decades, the American Studies Association labored in well-deserved obscurity. No longer. It has now made a name for itself by voting to boycott Israeli universities, accusing them of denying academic and human rights to  Palestinians.

Given that Israel has a profoundly democratic political system, the freest press in the Middle East, a fiercely independent judiciary and astonishing religious and racial diversity within its universities, including affirmative action for Arab students, the charge is rather strange.

Made more so when you consider the state of human rights in Israel’s neighborhood. As we speak, Syria’s government is dropping “barrel bombs” filled with nails, shrapnel and other instruments of terror on its own cities. Where is the ASA boycott of Syria?   Click here to continue reading.

Israel and the death of Pan-Arabism
by Caroline Glick

http://carolineglick.com/israel-and-the-death-of-pan-arabism/

The so-called Arab Spring unleashed forces that have been dormant for a century. Like their counterparts throughout the region, Israel’s Arabic-speaking minorities are changing in profound ways. But our leaders fail to grasp the implications of what is happening.  

Consider the Christian community.
Father Gabriel Nadaf, a Greek Orthodox priest from Nazareth, has become the symbol of this new period. Nadaf is the spiritual leader of an Israeli Christian movement calling for Israeli Christian youth to serve in the IDF. He is responsible for the 300 percent rise in Christian Arab enlistment in the IDF in the past year.

Palestine is a Geographical Area, Not a Nationality

Eli E. Hertz | January 21, 2014

The Arabs invented a special national entity in the 1960s called the Palestinians, specifically for political gain. They brand Israelis as invaders and claim the geographic area called Palestine belongs exclusively to the Arabs.

The word Palestine is not even Arabic. It is a word coined by the Romans around 135 CE from the name of a seagoing Aegean people who settled on the coast of Canaan in antiquity – the Philistines. The name was chosen to replace Judea, as a sign that Jewish sovereignty had been eradicated following the Jewish revolts against Rome.     Continue HERE


"Sovereignty", is a periodical addressing the pressing need for a comprehensive, reasoned and just soluion regarding the Land of Israel. From the editor's of "Sovereignty",

“There are many people who well understand the importance of sovereignty, but nevertheless worry about the complexities of world reaction, demographics and the State of Israel's possible loss of Jewish identity. To them we loudly say: enough of the paralyzing anxiety and fear. We must move on from establishing the settlement enterprise to establishing sovereignty, standing upright and fearless. From the pages of this journal you will be able to become acquainted with the positions of people in the field who are politicians, thinkers and others who deal with these primal fears courageously and with open eyes as they offer solutions and inspire a goal of fortitude in the pursuit of a grand vision.”

We will stand with Israel as she defends her right to be a sovereign Jewish state with defensible borders living in peace with her neighbors.
We recognize United Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel and support the development of the communities in Judea and Samaria, the biblical heartland of Israel.
We will fight against anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, anti-Christian activities - in education, geo-politics, and in the culture.
We will not remain silent as Israel and the United States are undermined, threatened, and attacked by those who seek to manipulate history, deny the truth, dismantle the foundations and destroy the values that have made our nations free and prosperous.

Jeremiah 32:14-15 'Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Take these deeds, this deed of the purchase, both that which is sealed, and this deed which is open, and put them in an earthen vessel; that they may continue many days. For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the G-d of Israel: Houses and fields and vineyards shall yet again be bought in this land.'

Founder CJUI

"I am a Zionist because Israel is my history, the land of my people.  Israel continues to be the safe haven for persecuted Jews forced to flee anti-Semitism worldwide. 

Israel is freedom, a light unto the nations.  Stand with me to fight for Israel’s security and survival."


Rev. Fumio Taku

President CJUI

As a Christian, my faith rests on the God of Israel and His holy scriptures, which clearly state that the Land and people of Israel are inseparable. It is my joy to stand with our Jewish neighbors in support of Israel and of our Judeo-Christian values."

Helga Lustig

Member, CJUI Board of Directors

“As a child survivor of the Holocaust my life has been profoundly defined by the persecution of  the Jewish  people. The rebirth of the Jewish State of Israel as an idealistic democratic country, and  as a haven  for Jews compels my support. With enthusiasm, I joined CJUI in the fight to preserve Judeo-Christian democratic values because the defense of these values is the defense of Israel.”

Denette Abers

CJUI Board Member
"Loving the people and land of Israel has nothing to do with being blessed if I bless Israel, and nothing nothing to do with end time scenarios. It has everything to do with Israel being the apple of God's eye. As I behold Him He continues to create in me the same undying love He has for His people."

BOOK REVIEW of THE ISRAELI SOLUTION

by Janet Tassel


To Caroline Glick, senior contributing editor at the Jerusalem Post, the concept of a "two-state solution," carving an invented state of Palestine from the tiny body of Israel and hopefully expecting the two resulting entities to live in harmony is, at best, a "chimera."  Worse, it is a "humiliating, dangerous nightmare"; and worst of all, it spells the end of Israel.

What Glick proposes in her provocative new book, The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East, (available March 4) is to brush away the web of mischief, ignorance, deceit and hatred that surrounds the "peace plan," and with newfound clarity, get rid of the misbegotten thing entirely.  In its place, she proposes a one-state plan, the one state being Israel.

In Glick's own words:

The Israeli one-state plan entails the application of Israeli law-- and through it, Israeli sovereignty-- over the west bank of the Jordan River: the area that, from biblical times through the 1950s, was known to the world as Judea and Samaria.  In Israel, Judea and Samaria remain the terms used to refer to the territory….   (Continue HERE)

EXPOSÉ: No-go Areas
for Jews in Europe


Opinion

From Giulio Meotti

Surprised that Israelis entering Jordan are required to deposit religious Jewish items, like skullcaps and tefillin, for "security reasons?

It's happening in many European countries as well, where Jews are once again in grave danger and Judeophobia has become the common currency of politics.

Jews in Denmark have just been warned by Israeli officials not to appear publicly wearing Jewish religious symbols such as yarmulkes or stars of David in order to avoid increasing anti-Israel and anti-Semitic altercations. “We advise Israelis who come to Denmark and want to go to the synagogue to wait to don their skull caps until they enter the building and not to wear them in the street, irrespective of whether the areas they are visiting are seen as being safe,” said Israel’s ambassador to Denmark, Arthur Avnon.

Prosor: Israeli Construction Not an Obstacle to Peace
by Elad Benari

Arutz Sheva


Israel's building in its own capital is not an obstable to peace, but rather the Arabs' demands and incitement, Israel's ambassador to the United Nations said on Wednesday.

Ambassador Ron Prosor was responding to the condemnation by four European members of the Security Council of Israel's plans to build thousands of new housing units in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.

Fact checking the
settlement issue

by Yoram Ettinger

1. Judea and Samaria (Jewish roots) or West Bank (Arab roots)?

“Judea” (יהודה) is the origin of the term “Jew” (יהודי). Its Hebrew spelling combines one of God’s names: Jehova (יהוה) and one of God’s acronyms: ד'. Judea and Samaria are the cradle of Jewish history, religion, culture, holidays, ethos, language and yearnings. The official name of the area was "Judea and Samaria" from Biblical times until April 1950, when Jordan occupied/annexed the area, renaming it "West Bank," as distinguished from the east bank of the Jordan River. Judea and Samaria was the official name used by the 1922-1948 British Mandate of Palestine, as well as by the U.N.

Decorated general: Shariah is here now!
Tells audience influence has penetrated 'deepest halls of our government'
by  Michael Carl

Retired Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin is warning that Islamic Shariah law already is in the United States, and is forming a cloud over the future of the nation.

Boykin, addressing a packed house at a synagogue today in Stoughton, Mass., said, “There is a threat to this country from Shariah and the Muslim Brotherhood,” noting the Muslim Brotherhood has had a presence in the U.S. since at least 1962.

“The new Egyptian president, Mohamed Morsi, said he joined the Muslim Brotherhood in 1978 while he was in the United States of America. People who say that the Muslim Brotherhood is not in America are not dealing in reality,” Boykin said.  Continued........

Simon Deng Former Sudanese Slave:
 “Calling Israel a racist state is
absolutely absurd and immoral.


"I came here as a friend of the State of Israel and the Jewish people. –I came to protest this Durban conference which is based on a set of lies. It is organized by nations who are themselves are guilty of the worst kinds of oppression.

It will not help the victims of racism. It will only isolate and target the Jewish state. It is a tool of the enemies of Israel. The UN has itself become a tool against Israel. For over 50 years, 82 percent of the UN General Assembly emergency meetings have been about condemning one state - Israel. Hitler couldn’t have been made happier."

General Assembly Resolution for Limited Palestinian Statehood Lacks Legal Authority

Eli E. Hertz

A host of resolutions passing annually by the General Assembly are not legally binding documents by any measure. One needs only to read Article 10 of the UN Charter:


“The General Assembly may discuss any questions or any matters within the scope of the present Charter or relating to the powers and functions of any organs provided for in the present Charter, and, except as provided in Article 12, may make recommendations to the Members of the United Nations or to the Security Council or to both on any such questions or matters” [italics by author].

The U.N.'s universal definition of a refugee:
"Any person who has been forced to abandon his permanent home in his natural habitat since time immemorial will be considered a refugee".

In only one instance has this definition been expanded upon, through the pressure of the Arab League. The broadened definition is as follows: "Every Arab who left Palestine-the Land of Israel in 1948, who had lived there for two years, will also be considered a refugee he and his descendants ". Why did the Arab countries bother to expand this definition?    <Read more>
