Israeli-Greek tises have improved over the past few months at about the some page Israeli-Turkish ties haxe deteriorated,but Greek foreign minister Droutsas believes the two sets of relationship are unrelated.

Droutsas told The Jarusalem Post in an exclusive e-mail interviev just before his arrival on sunday nigth,that the recent bloom in Jarusalem,s relations with Athens"categorially" has no connection to the Israeli-Turkish crises.
International relations are not"a competitive game" he said.
"We don,t see any competitive dimension between the relationship we are devoloping with Israel and our relationship with Turkey,"Droutsas said:"This is because each of these relationship has its own dynamic and its own historical background.
What are doing is writing new pages in the history of Greek -Israeli relations"
Droutsas arrived sunday night as part of regional trip that will also take him to Jordan,the Palestinian Authority,Egypt and Lebanon.

Has visit comes about a year after George Papendreu Center-left Pan hellenic Sosyalist Movement(PASOK) come into power.Initially,there were concerns in Jarusalem about this governement,since Jarusalem generally prefers move.
Conservative gouvernements in Europe,and since Papendreu,s father Andreas,was known for pro-palestinian,anti-Israel learning when he was Greece:s Prime minister from 1981-1989 and from 1993-1996.

But those concerns evaporated as the younger Papendreau altered his conutry,s relationship with israel for the better.
For many years visits by Greek ministers were few and far between,but since a visit here by Papendreau in July,his tourism minister,minister of state,deputy foreign minister have all visited.

Israeli officials have also been visiting Athens with greater frequancy;Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu went to Greece in August,and Amos Gilad,head of Defence Ministry,s diplomatic-military breau,was there earlier this month.Last week the Israeli and Greek forces carried out a joint excercise.

MESSAGE TO WORLD: JERUSALEM GETS TOP-PRIORITY DEVELOPMENT STATUS
by Hillel Fendel


The ministerial committee for legislation approved a bill that will grant special benefits to the capital, including incentives for construction in western, eastern and northern Jerusalem.


The committee’s approval means the bill will have official government support when it comes up for its Knesset votes. Some 45 MKs are signed on the proposal, which should have no trouble passing in the Knesset.


The bill calls for an annual government grant to Jerusalem, as well as an upgrade of its status for the encouragement of investments in education, housing, and employment. Jerusalem will now enjoy the highest-priority classification in the country, with the goal of stopping the recent exodus of young couples – and strengthening the city’s Israeli status.


The upgrade in Jerusalem's city status was initiated by MK Uri Ariel (National Union), who said, “The true message given by the passage of this bill is the government’s change of direction regarding Jerusalem, and a signal that construction in the city will soon be unfrozen.”


The bill, which is a set of changes and emendations to the existing Jerusalem Law, specifically encourages the construction of “affordable housing complexes,” to be accomplished by simplifying the planning and approval processes. Many of the city’s reserves for future housing lie in neighborhoods such as Pisgat Ze’ev, Gilo, Ramot, N’vei Yaakov and Har Homa – which were liberated in the Six Day War in 1967 – and therefore some international condemnation of the bill is expected.


Jerusalem, Complete and United

Though visitors to the city can detect no difference between the built-up neighborhoods that were always part of Jerusalem and those that joined 43 years ago, many in the international community still regard the latter as “settlements.” However, Israel’s "Basic Law: Jerusalem, Capital of Israel,” passed in 1980, begins with these words: ”Jerusalem, complete and united, is the capital of Israel.”


Mayor Nir Barkat, who worked hard for the bill’s passage, thanked the ministerial committee for legislation, and said, “The Knesset’s and government’s formal recognition of the need to strengthen Jerusalem is critical for the city’s future and continued growth. This decision will help Jerusalem to continue to be attractive to the young, to tourists, and to investors.”


“This is a first step towards returning Jerusalem to the map of Israel,” MK Ariel said, “in terms of young couples and small and medium businesses. It will encourage housing starts in the capital; until now the policy has been to freeze and neglect Jerusalem, and this will hopefully signal a turnaround and new construction in the capital.”


Communications Minister Moshe Kachlon of the Likud said, “Whoever among the Palestinians and the world expects the present Government of Israel to recognize foreign claims of sovereignty in our capital – is mistaken and misleading.”


    The following document was presented by Eli Hertz at the meeting of the Board of Governors of the American Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists on December 3, 2009 in Washington D.C.

    Dear friend,

    Have you ever asked yourself why during the period between 1917 and 1947 hundreds of thousands of Jews throughout the world woke up one morning and decided to leave their homes and go to Palestine? The majority did this because they heard that a future National Home for the Jewish people was being established in Palestine, on the basis of the League of Nations' obligation under the "Mandate for Palestine." This historical document laid down the Jewish legal right to settle anywhere in western Palestine, the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, an entitlement unaltered in international law.

    The "Mandate for Palestine" was not a naïve vision briefly embraced by the international community. Fifty-one member countries - the entire League of Nations - unanimously declared on July 24, 1922:

    "Whereas recognition has been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country."

    American Support for a Jewish National Home:

    On June 30, 1922, a joint resolution (the Lodge Fish Resolution) of both Houses of Congress of the United States unanimously endorsed the "establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people," confirming the irrevocable right of Jews to settle in the area of Palestine – anywhere between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea:

    "Favoring the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.

    "Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled. That the United States of America favors the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which should prejudice the civil and religious rights of Christian and all other non-Jewish communities in Palestine, and that the holy places and religious buildings and sites in Palestine shall be adequately protected." [italics in the original]

    On September 21, 1922, President Warren G. Harding signed the Lodge-Fish Resolution, endorsing the Balfour Declaration and the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.

    The U.S. Government (not a member of the League of Nations) maintained that her participation in WWI and her contribution to the defeat of Germany and the defeat of her Allies, entitled the United States to be consulted as to the terms of the "Mandate for Palestine."

    The outcome of this request was a "Convention [Treaty] between the United States of America and the United Kingdom with respect to the rights of the two governments and their nationals in Palestine," a relationship governed by international law. The Convention contains the entire text of the "Mandate for Palestine" including the preamble and was concluded and signed by their respective plenipotentiaries in London on December 3, 1924; Ratification advised by the Senate, February 20, 1925; Ratified by President Calvin Coolidge, March 2, 1925; Ratified by Great Britain, March 18, 1925; Ratifications exchanged at London, December 3, 1925; Proclaimed, December 5, 1925.

    In ratifying the Convention, the United States of America formally recognized the terms of the "Mandate for Palestine" and the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country.

    Any attempt to negate the Jewish people's right to Palestine - Eretz-Israel - and to deny them access and control in the area designated for the Jewish people by the League of Nations is an actionable infringement of both international law and the Supremacy Clause (Article VI, paragraph 2 of the United States Constitution), which dictates that Treaties "shall be the supreme Law of the Land".

    We collectively and individually must do all we can to support the Jewish people and the state of Israel. There is no more crucial time than today, and I believe that this body has the capacity to help defeat the "Occupation" mantra by insisting that the land of Israel has been given to the Jewish people as of right, and in accordance with existing international law.

    Sincerely,
    Eli E. Hertz

KÜRDİSTAN DEVLETİNİN KURULUŞU TEK AMAÇTIR.

Nasil Türkler'in Türkiye'si, Gürcüler'in Gürcistan'i, Ermeniler'in Ermenistan'ı varsa Kürtler'in de Kürdistan'i olmalidir.

BU, BÜTÜN MİLLETLERİN EN DOĞAL HAKKIDIR. 

Eğer tüm Kürdlerin ortak bir bağımsızlık hareketi gelişirse ki, bu şimdi mümkündür,  ABD ve AB devletleri uzun süredir sürdürdükleri Arap - Türk yanlısı politikalarını değiştirmek durumunda kalacaklardır ve böylece ilk Kürdistan devletinin ortaya çıkması sağlanacaktır.
