A Bahraini professor made his contribution to improved interfaith relations, by repeating the blood libel at an interfaith conference. This account is from the Dutch-Israeli organization "Missing Peace."

Salah Soltan, a professor in Islamic culture at the Al Khaleej University in Bahrain, recently visited the Netherlands to attend an interfaith conference in the Movenpick hotel in Amsterdam. The conference was organized by the Federation of Islamic Organizations in the Netherlands (FION).

Yassin El Forhani a well known "moderate" Muslim leader in the Netherlands, organized the conference. El Forhani is affiliated with politicians from Dutch leftist parties.

The FION announced that by organizing this conference it hoped to initiate an inter-cultural dialog about the position of Islam and the Muslims in the Netherlands. The conference was meant to contribute to the establishment of a peaceful society, free from mutual suspicion.

At the conference Salah Soltan gave a speech about "The relationship between the Muslim and the other: Between the prophetic model and its implantation in societies".

Soltan appeared previously in a MEMRI video clip. The clip showed Soltan, who is also president of the American Center for Islamic Research, relating the classic blood libel story on Hamas TV. In that interview he argued that Jews slaughter non-Jews in order to use their blood to knead matzot for Passover.

A well known Dutch pro-Israeli activist interviewed Soltan at the conference. In the interview Soltan repeated the blood libel.

Only after the interviewer expressed his shock and asked some probing questions, did Soltan announce that instead of Jews he was sure Zionists were maintaining the practice of slaughtering Christians for Passover. At that moment El Forhani interfered and ended the interview.

The interview in English begins after 1.26 minutes. Click for video

ISRAEL has the right, and full authority, to deminish any anti-semetic individuals where ever they exist in this world. The world has to come to an understanding, that ISRAEL isn't just another country, but a country that carries out what G-D pleases in this world.

Examples in a host of media of even die-hard JC Christians not accepting what Israel is being attacked with. Israel is winning this battle:

UN tells Israel to end Gaza blockade immediately
Moon: End Gaza blockade immediately Are these only words or sanctions and panishments if ignored by Israel.

Yo, UN them self are a failure to this sort of so call flotilla aid works allowed and plan by a few so call UN workers behind this situation. Now this few UN officials are very glad to used this situation to force Israel to lift Gaza blockade immediately. What if this blockade lifted and weapons and rockets smuggle in to Gaza, would the UN responsible for that. Even now the Gaza people have a lots of weapon and rockets and continue to kill innocent people why the UN donít search the weapon in Gaza. UN actually is very corrupted, everyone knows. God protect Israel and all His people.

UN tells Israel what?
Thank God the UN has no authority over Israel. Lord, please protect your chosen people and the land YOU gave them. In Jesus Name, AMEN!

The Last Days
Behold the day of the Lord cometh and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle,and the city shall be taken,and the houses rifled,and the women ravished,and half of the city shall go forth into captivity,and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the Lord go forth,and fight against those nations,as when he fought in the day of battle, And his feet shall stand in that day upon mount Olives,which is before Jerusalem on the east,and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west,and there shall be a very great valley, and half of the mount shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

This is another excellent expose and the right path to take. The Flotilla can be used to shame Israel's accusers if correctly used - which means Israel must agree to any open, unbiased investigation with the only condition both sides of the coin be examined.

The UN & EU will be cleasrly exposed for not doing so - Israel can also demand that in further instances the UN must not make claims before an investigation - and must adhere to pointing out both sides of the coin.

Turkey, Hamas and Iran must be exposed - this is Israel's great opportunity and should be seen as a gift from Heaven. Let's not be fooled the whole world accepts the lynching against Israel by media terrorism - we are slowly winning this battle.
