The Question of the Land Covenant


He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth.
    He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.  
[emphasis mine]
Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:
Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:     Psalm 105. 7-11

وَقُلْنَا مِنْ بَعْدِهِ لِبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ اسْكُنُوا الْأَرْضَ فَإِذَا جَاءَ وَعْدُ الْآخِرَةِ جِئْنَا بِكُمْ لَفِيفًا ١٧:١٠٤

Then We said to the children of Israel: 'Dwell in this Land [Israel]. When the promise of the hereafter [End of Days] comes to be fulfilled, We shall assemble you all together [in this land].  Sura 17.104
(A non Wahhabi translation)

A thorough and ground breaking examination of the grave international abuse of Article 49(6) of the Geneva Convention against Israel - it has become a stick to beat Jews with, and has been applied highly selectively and inconsistently, and extrapolated to a degree that has never been applied with anything like the same rigour anywhere else, despite numerous examples.
This paper belies the assertion that Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria are illegal. (h/t EoZ)

The unspoken refugee problem.

Britain's most sinful betrayal of the Jews in Israel

Are Jewish Settlements in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) or East Jerusalem as manifestly illegal as is often claimed?

An illuminating and fascinating lecture

' Eugene Rostow, former dean of Yale Law School, former undersecretary of state and co-author of U.N. Security Council Resolution 242, which sets out the criteria for Israel-Arab peacemaking said U.N. Resolution 242 does not call for withdrawal to the pre-1967 boundaries; Israel’s withdrawal from Sinai amounts to a 90 percent withdrawal from post-1967 areas; the legality of Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria “cannot be terminated except by a recognized peace between Israel and its neighbors, and perhaps not even then, in view of Article 80 of the U.N. Charter, ‘the Palestine article,’” which upholds the 1922 British Mandate for Palestine. This 1922 international legal instrument considered Judea and Samaria part of the Jewish national homeland: “Jews have the same right to settle [in Judea and Samaria] as they have to settle in Haifa.” The 1993 Oslo Accord does not prohibit the construction of Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria.'

ʻI think we do not attach sufficient importance to the restoration of the Jews,ʼ he said. ʻWe do not think enough about it. But
certainly, if there is anything promised in the Bible it is this. I imagine that you cannot read the Bible without seeing clearly
that there is to be an actual restoration of the Children of Israelʼ

Four reformed evangelical witnesses to the hope of ethnic Israel and the barren poison of anti-Zionism, Christian or not: M'Cheyne, Bonar, Spurgeon, and J.C.Ryle.

The latest rantings of the Iranian tyrant - 'The Jews only seem human', 'liberate the US from dictatorship' - a progressive loss of grip on reality.  The countdown to very serious conflict is on.

A drop in the ocean - just one testimony of hundreds of thousands - the little mentioned but massive ethnic cleansing of Jews from Arab lands in the 40s and 50s - lands where they had dwelt for millennia!
