American Christian-Zionist David Ben-Ariel detained

"This reminds us of the case of the American Christian-Zionist David Ben-Ariel, who was imprisoned for allegedly trying to destroy the Dome of the Rock, to make way for the reconstruction of the Jewish Temple. Ben-Ariel repeatedly declared that he was there only to protest, not to destroy the mosque.

Attorney Naftali Wurtzberger, who defended Federman, also represented David Ben-Ariel during his trial in Israeli High Court and Jerusalem's Municipal Court. Ben-Ariel is now free and back in the United States. Yet, the Israeli government determined that Ben-Ariel cannot visit Israel, although he might be eligible to return in 2005. Why not deport the leaders of terrorist groups who are living, apparently with more rights, in Judea, Samaria and Gaza?"
- Is Administrative Detention Just?

Ben Ariel not arrested...

Ben Ariel was not arrested on political charges...

Due to persistent false rumors that I, David Ben-Ariel, was involved in a plot to blow up the mosques in Jerusalem, even by lying religious leaders like Gerald Flurry of the Philadelphia Church of God (not just enemies of the plain truth of the Bible), I present here the State Department letter from former American Consul General in Jerusalem, Edward G. Abington, Jr. to Ohio Representative Marcy Kaptur. (Jr.'s hostility to the Temple Mount Faithful is explained in Why Edward Abington, Jr. Must Be Investigated! and his dubious character and conflict of interests in Something smells bad).

MRS ANNA HOOVER FOUND DEAD IN HOME
Mrs. Anna E. Hoover, 89 years, mother of R. D. Hoover, and lifelong resident of Montgomery Township, was found dead at her home two miles west and one mile north of Risingsun, Wednesday morning. It is thought death was due to heart trouble and indigestion. The opinion is she had entered the house from her chore work; Tuesday evening, and sat down in a chair, when she fell to the floor where she was found, indicating death had come early Tuesday evening. Three children survive, R. D. Hoover, John Hoover, and Mrs. Sarah Hunt.
The funeral will be held Friday afternoon at the U. B. church.

Painting my kitchen listening to the Pet Shop Boys...

I painted my kitchen this kind of fuchsia color (since it sort of matches one of the colors on a festive mosaic table I have in my Dining Room - whose walls I painted Blooming Marigold), something Dutch Boy called Floral something, and then I was experimenting with the sponge to add some splashes of gold and green (since other rooms in my home have gold and green) but my sister (who is like a natural home interior decorator) said the spots had to go. So I tried going over it with a paintbrush and it didn't work. So last night, listening to Madonna, I started painting the whole thing over again. Today, I'm adding a second and third coat listening to the Pet Shop Boys and life goes on... :-)
Maybe I'll add some pictures here later.

It's later...

Later I'll probably show the fuchsia color after things are better organized (if ever!)... I need to do something with the floor too...

The Hebrew roots of the United States and British Commonwealth

Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall is based upon the precious biblical understanding of the Hebrew roots, the Israelite origins, of the United States and British Commonwealth.

Joseph isn't Jewish!
My sojourn at Kibbutz Ramat Yohanan, where I served as a kibbutz volunteer for five months in 1982-1983, blessed me with memories to cherish a lifetime.

The English-Speaking Nations of White Israelites
Is God a racist? Does He discriminate? Did Jesus hate Gentiles? Was Paul prejudiced? Are Israelites and Jews superior to other peoples? Is God's favorite color white?

The Plain Truth about the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel
In order to warn Israel about the many prophecies that preview our coming captivity (due to our idolatry and immorality), it was first necessary for God to restore our identity. God has now restored our identity, He's again warning our nations, and it's up to us what will happen next.

Spiritual homosexuals?

Re: Women pastors and interracial dating/marriage remains sins!

#103. To: mel_living (#61)

David is a homosexual who contracted AIDS and believes that is his punishment for his sin and now he considers himself a "recovering homosexual" yet he does not have any relations with anyone nor does he want relations with a female

I am a recovering homosexual, a celibate Christian, a spiritual eunuch for the Kingdom of God, but I don't blame God for "cause and effect" concerning my contraction of the HIV/AIDS virus and I have never said AIDS is my "punishment." If God so easily punished folks for their sexual sins, we'd all be dead!

Scarlet Letter: A Christian with AIDS
Does God Heal Today?

Plea to Diehard Catholics & Protestants to Repent
Having clearly seen how the practice of homosexuality is a sin (as I testify in God and the Gays), I can now see clearly how SPIRITUAL HOMOSEXUALS, the bloody Roman Catholic whore and her Protestant prostitute daughters (Rev. 17:5), prefer tradition over truth.

Israeli police forced to uphold law on Temple Mount

Double Joy: Prayer at Temple Mount Before Daughter Weds
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

(IsraelNN.com) Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick won a seven-month battle on Sunday and prayed at the holy site with his 19-year-old daughter, just hours before she married in a ceremony in Bnei Brak. He told Israel National News they prayed at the site and were escorted by two policemen and another guard.

“According to the law, you can pray on the Temple Mount, but cannot ‘demonstrate’ by moving the body in a fashion that indicates praying or by holding a prayer book,” he explained. “I can stand and move my lips. They are not going to read my lips to know what I am saying.”

Nevertheless, one of the policemen filmed him and his daughter for 20 minutes. Glick revealed that he prayed for the safe release of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit and American prisoner-for-life Jonathan Pollard. “I also praised the A-lmighty and prayed that all Jews visit the Temple Mount," he added...

The High Court previously accepted Glick’s petition charging police with discrimination, and the justices ordered that he be allowed to visit the Temple Mount. Police refused to honor the order, however, and he filed two more petitions with the court. Finally, two weeks ago, the court set December 26 as a final date for police cooperation.

************

What a shame that the police have to be forced to follow the law and honor Yehuda Glick's RIGHT to pray upon the Temple Mount! May every Jew follow his holy example and make aliyah to Judaism's holiest site and pray upon the Temple Mount. After all, isn't the Temple Mount to host a House of Prayer for All Peoples? Don't the Prophets foretell all will go up to Jerusalem to learn about the God of Jacob and worship upon the Temple Mount?

After enduring detention for several weeks in Jerusalem's Russian Compound, how well I remember! - I was unjustly deported from Israel for highlighting the plight of the Temple Mount suffering under Nazi Muslim occupation - whose daily discrimination against Jews and Christians is aided and abetted by Israeli police - in an article published in Jerusalem in 1996. Dangerous Ideas? exposes how the High Court feared such dangerousWill Israel right the wrong and permit me to return to my beloved Jerusalem and exercise my rights to worship upon the Temple Mount?

How does he do it?

A hard-line Armstrongist?

A Sabbath-keeping Church of God brother in Oregon brought this "Ambassador Watch" post to my attention:

How does he do it?

A few quotes from it in italics and my response:

David Ben-Ariel (original name David Hoover) is a hard-line Armstrongist (a former member of WCG in Toledo)

My name was legally changed from David Hoover to David Ben-Ariel twenty one years ago, for religious reasons, as related within my articles God-given Names and From Toledo to Jerusalem.

Now which is it? Armstrongist or Armstrongite? Those who hate the plain truth of the Bible that Herbert Armstrong faithfully taught are confused as to what they would brand us who agree with the Word of God over the idolatrous traditions of Catholics and Protestants, apostate Christians, Christian reprobates.

A hard-line Armstrongist? I've also been called a hard-core Zionist (since I'm a Christian-Zionist) and racist of the week since I believe racism is not the unpardonable sin! Life goes on.

Everything I post is biblical. It could appear "extreme far-right" to those out in left field or who have yet to align their ideas with God's Word (Isaiah 55:7-9) . I recognize that everything political has religious ramifications and everything religious has political ramifications. There's no escaping it. Why deny it?

Gerald Flurry didn't appreciate my brief appearance on the Fox 25 Special Report on Philadelphia Church of God

Gerald Flurry's Outrageous Attack Against David Ben-Ariel

Hoover's fanaticism

It's rather fanatic to continue to call somebody by their former name rather than by their legal name, isn't it? Hoover is a great name but my surname is Ben-Ariel. It's also evident that my God-given determination and zeal isn't appreciated by those who lack such spiritual qualities. Regardless, my agenda is to serve the Great God of Israel, sharing the plain truth of His Bible and announce His soon coming Kingdom of God-Beings to rule on Earth and save all mankind from extinction. This clarity of mind, vision and purpose also includes serving as an emissary of Joseph (revealing the Israelite origins of the West). This God-given message must reach those high and low, rich and poor, regardless of race or religion.

Despite being the most prolific COG blogger by a country mile, Hoover's influence appears to be minimal - in fact almost non-existent - within the various factions of COGdom.

God knows whatever influence I have now or later, as a little known blogger, as an e-vangelist, is irrelevant to my calling and responsibility to get the Word out (how folks respond is their responsibility, not mine), but what I do know is this:

‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts (Zechariah 4:6).

Armstrong's shattered empire
Today, as prophesied, the brethren are scattered in different groups and organizations. Even as the early Church of God headquarters in Jerusalem was history just before their Great Tribulation, the destruction of the Temple and dispersion of the Jews, the Judean Church of God members fleeing to Pella (while the Church of God congregations continued to function in Asia Minor as the apostles carried on their God-given missions to the scattered tribes of Israel), the organized Work of God under Herbert W. Armstrong (that was centered in Pasadena, California) is history.- Gerald Flurry is an egomaniac and false prophet!
We await the appearance of the Two Witnesses who will restore, by their presence, the Church of God headquarters to Jerusalem.

For Zion's sake,
David Ben-Ariel

Nazi Muslims infamous for lies

Re: Reports: Iraq De-Judaizing Ezekiel's Tomb (will turn it into a mosque)

Nazi Muslims have a historical tendency to engage in such deception, infamous for their proclivity to lie, especially upon the Temple Mount in Jerusalem - Judaism's holiest site (which you wouldn't know since Jews and Israelis have woefully neglected the Temple Mount, enabling the Islamization of it, although thankfully that's beginning to change).

I was unjustly deported from Israel for highlighting the plight of the Temple Mount suffering under Arab occupation in an article published in Jerusalem and read throughout Israel and now the world. How well I remember! (From Toledo to Jerusalem and Israel's Unjust Deportation of David Ben-Ariel describe my ordeal in detail).

Jewish Zionists learning about Muslim Zionists from Christian Zionists

Cracking the Qur'an Code
by Lowell Gallin

Section Five

Salah Choudhury
Dhaka, Bangladesh


Cracking the Qur’an Code

Introduction

I first learned about Bangladesh Muslim human rights and pro-Israel Zionist activist Salah Choudhury from David Ben-Ariel, a Christian Zionist

http://jewjewsjewish.blogspot.com/

Jewish Zionists learning about Muslim Zionists from Christian Zionists might seem surprising, but today these contacts are growing. Jews and Israelis often believe that we stand alone in an increasingly hostile world. While it may be true that parts of the world grow increasingly and openly hostile, it is only a partial truth.

In these days of Ends and Beginnings others also come forward, such as Sheikh Palazzi, Salah Choudhury and David Ben-Ariel, to stand with the People of Israel in this Time of Jacob's Trouble (Jeremiah 30:7).

Jewish, Christian and Muslim Zionists share the belief that the outcome of the battle between those who stand with and those who stand against the God, Torah, Land and People of Israel has been foretold. We do not envy the fate of those who play on the losing team.

However, we each must make our own choices and take personal and national responsibility for those choices. The Qur'an says that as Pharaoh was drowning in the Red Sea, he repented and acknowledged that he had sinned against God by oppressing God's People Israel:

"We took the Children of Israel across the sea: Pharaoh and his hosts followed them in insolence and spite. At length, when overwhelmed with the flood, he said: 'I believe that there is no god except Him Whom the Children of Israel believe in: I am of those who submit (to God in Islam)'. (It was said to him): 'Ah now! But a little while before, wast thou in rebellion! And thou didst mischief (and violence)! This day shall We save thee in thy body, that thou mayest be a sign to those who come after thee! But verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Signs!'"
Qur'an, Sura Yunus ("Jonah"), 10:90-92

Hopefully, the players on the losing team will wake up to what they are doing, and turn back from marching against Jerusalem, before sharing Pharaoh's fate.

In this section we read about the courageous activities of Salah Choudhury in Bangladesh, and of his Jewish friend and colleague Dr. Richard Benkin in the United States.

We are proud to say that both Salah Choudhury and Dr. Benkin serve as R&B Islam-Israel Fellowship Council members.

AIDS infested, castrated gay man?

Re: The Plain Truth about NEW YEAR'S!

4. Happy New Years to our resident AIDS infested, castrated gay man, Mr. David Hoover.

It's so sad that since you can't refute a word of what I write, you again desperately attempt to shoot the messenger and expose your murderous hatred for people with AIDS and for those who love the plain truth of the Bible over idolatrous traditions. As usual, it backfires.

Furthermore, my name was legally changed from David Hoover to David Ben-Ariel TWENTY YEARS AGO, as related within my articles God-given Names and From Toledo to Jerusalem.

House of the God of Jacob

The God of Jacob


All nations must learn about the God of JACOB [not Esau or Ishmael] or they'll become history.

Isaiah 2:3
And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the [Temple] mountain of the LORD, to the [temple] house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law [it wasn't done away], and the word of the LORD [not allah] from Jerusalem [not Rome or Mecca or Medina].

Here's a wonderful description of how the God of Jacob works and how He teaches the nations:

Zechariah 14
16 And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles [not pagan Christmas or pagan Easter that apostate Christians observe or Ramadan]. 17 And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18 If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the LORD strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.

Traditional Christians, counterfeit Christianity, reprobate Christians, must repent of their accursed replacement theology that cheaply substitutes Sunday for Sabbath and pagan holidays for biblical festivals.

Plea to Protestants and Catholics to Repent!
