The more I think about the more it makes sense the Russians are behind this I mean they are making a mint in Syria and Iran selling arms and are looking to replace us as Egypt's main benefactor. Not to mention this draws all the attention away from Ukraine while they complete their invasion. Those SOBs are brilliant at making us look like ass hats while they clean up.

I think the Russians actually have Aaron's Rod I think I remember something about Hitler having it in his possession and when the Russians took out his last stand they confiscated everything they found including Aaron's Rod.

The only reason nuclear weapons aren't used are the effects of radiation and what happened in Japan. If someone had the Ark and had figured out how to harness it's power there is no way it wouldn't have been used. Just think about it all that firepower with no radiation it would be the perfect weapon.
I suspect you're right and the power of the Ark is many times more horrible than nuclear weapons, which have been used and continue to terrorize us to the very day. The Ark is too powerful and it's only our collective ignorance of who may possess it and where which gives us comfort.
It's been seen by reliable witnesses and I believe it's been seized from its location and moved under the control of some powerful nation.
Thus I do not think it is on earth but that does not mean it couldn't return at some point.
I find it personally upsetting that with the goodness that it contains (the tablets of G*d's Commandments), Aaron's Rod and manna, that someone is consciously hiding it for nefarious purposes, or- at best, to maintain some kind of balance of power. Even the Hebrews did not use the thing for war, once their land was restored them. Perhaps this was a bit of a mistake, but they instead kept it in an exalted room in The Temple.
Good luck finding a Jewish High Priest in Russia though they were trying to run Jews out of Ukraine like it was holocaust week.
I'm sure Mikhail Khodorkovsky (Jewish) could locate one if Putin loosens his leash far enough. Aarons Rod was lost in the Stalingrad Siege. The Russian Winter takes all from invaders.
Palestine has been controlled by numerous different peoples, including the Ancient Egyptians, Canaanites, Philistines, Tjekker, Ancient Israelites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, early Muslims (Umayads, Abbasids, Seljuqs, Fatimids), Crusaders, later Muslims (Ayyubids, Mameluks, Ottomans), the British, The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (1948–1967, on the "West Bank") and Egyptian Republic (in Gaza), and modern Israelis and Palestinians. Other terms for the same area include Canaan, Zion, the Land of Israel, Southern Syria, Jund Filastin, Outremer, the Holy Land and the Southern Levant.

I was just thinking about this! I had it in my mind that they will do anything to stop the Palestinians, including inventing this reason to attack. Besides, even if they did, I don't think it justifies the brutal attacks. They have turned into a bully nation just like ours! Monkey see, monkey do.

a reply to: bbracken677This is just propagandistic nonsense.
Palestinians have not ruled themselves in Palestine, ever. Their current situation is the closest to self-rule they have ever experienced. Prior to that it has just changed hands from one conqueror to another.
They just were never given complete sovereignty.
Israel is a client state because they are dependent on their existence from handouts from other countries.
Their benefactors control the final decision on what they do.
They are no more independent than Palestine was under the various empires over past times.
I agree with this. The key to consider here is, the client state of whom? The Israelis are clearly working for the United States or those with heavy US interests. The Palestinians (Arabs), are in the service of more shadowy eastern European masters, with some kind of Russian presence.

Israel is a client state. Palestine is not a state.
You claim it is propagandist nonsense, however it is fact. Disprove the fact and it will become propaganda. Propaganda by it's very nature and definition cannot be entirely factual. Prove me wrong.
Earlier you were saying that is wasn't until now.
Palestine is not a state.
Prove me wrong.
That is according to the UN, but Gaza is really an open air prison maintained by the Israelis.
The State of Palestine is a sovereign state in the Levant that is recognized by the United Nations.
Well said and I agree to a point but do feel we have a responsibility to "salvage" life it at all possible otherwise we are just a short step away from genocide with the excuse of "well they really didn't appreciate life anyway".

Radical fundamentalist Muslim kids are taught early on to die for their cause. - Check -
Radical fundamentalist Moms throw their children in front military convoys just to get the vehicles to stop and the ambush begins. - Check -
Radical fundamentalist Dads are known to "honor kill" their own kids when they become too "westernized". - Check -
If they have have no respect for life and are always ready willing to die for their cause, why do the sympathizers get bent out of shape when they are accommodated?
Either you are a state, or you are not, according to the UN.
You could say that the UN granted them "honorary" statehood without the official status.

JERUSALEM -- The admission of Palestine as a nonmember state in the United Nations is far more than a symbolic vote. For the Palestinians, the move gives them an important boost of international legitimacy in their quest for independence. For Israel and its key ally, the United States, it is a diplomatic setback with potentially grave implications.
Key words: States, and state.

. . . a nonmember state . . .
Like I said earlier, in practical terms, Gaza is an open air prison maintained by the Zionist regime (and arguably, the West Bank, too).
