Blow Up the Mosques or an Expired Visa?
Once again, an attempt to spread DISinformation (on a popular forum) about my unjust deportation from Israel, only provides me with another opportunity to clearly state my case and continue to highlight the plight of the Temple Mount suffering under a Nazi-Muslim occupation:
"You had only been in Israel for 9 months... and you're telling me it had already EXPIRED?!?!?!"
IF you knew anything about Israel, and those who do can vouch for this FACT, one usually receives a visa for three months, after which time such visa must be renewed. Mine was renewed time and again, but they don't permit you to renew it after a year's stay in the Holy Land. You have to leave the country for awhile, even if just to Egypt or Cyprus.
Since the Israeli government office of the office of the interior, misrad hapanim, was working on my application for resident alien or temporary residence (since I'm not Jewish according to halacha, they rarely grant citizenship to non-Jews) status, they give you a piece of paper, a strip of paper with the date on it and an official stamp which authorizes your continued stay in the country. The two ladies I frequently met concerning my case were Anat and Yochi.
When the Israeli authorities detained me, they took that piece of paper and never returned it, knowing they had predetermined to deport me to try and silence my outspoken articles (all legal and aboveground), read in Jerusalem and throughout all Israel, from Dan to Beersheva, against the illegal Muslim religious discrimination against Jews and Christians daily, illegally forbidding Christians and Jews their religious rights to pray and worship upon the Temple Mount that is destined to host the "House of Prayer for All Peoples."
Such an unjust deportation from the Holy Land I love only "encouraged" me to "cry aloud and spare not" and further expose their complicity with the Nazi-Muslim occupation of Judaism's holiest site.
When I attempted to return the same year of my unjust deportation I was detained at the airport and refused entry. In 1997 I petitioned Senator Mike DeWine to inquire about a visa for me and he received an initial reply from Itzhak Oren, Minister for Congressional Affairs, March 7, 1997, that read, in part:
"It is our understanding that Mr. Ben-Ariel will not be granted a tourist visa at this time...The Ministry of the Interior...has made the decision not to grant the visa and does not offer any information behind their decision."
That was in regard to the requested visa, NOT to my former unjust deportation! Note the difference. Consequent correspondence informed Senator DeWine that I would not be "eligible for a tourist visa until 2005." That's why I again petitioned Senators DeWine and Voinovich to help me to obtain my visa, especially since Israel is the custodian of Christian holy sites and allegedly guarantees "freedom of access" to make holy pilgrimage to them in their 1967 Law for the Protection of the Holy Places. Such guaranteed "freedom of access" is impossible unless one is granted freedom of entry into the Holy Land.
Regarding my unjust deportation, that political prostitute, former Consul General in Jerusalem, Edward Abington, Jr., wrote the Honorable Marcy Kaptur, my Congressional representative, June 28, 1996:
"On June 6, 1996 the Consulate General in Jerusalem received your letter of May 6, 1996 about the deportation of David Ben-Ariel.
On April 2, 1996, we responded to an earlier query of yours about Mr. Ben-Ariel. In that letter we noted that Mr. Ben-Ariel was held at the Jerusalem jail from January 4, 1996 until February 1, 1996, when he was deported by the Israeli government for overstaying his permission to stay in Israel.Consular staff visited him twice while he was in jail. He reported no mistreatment while in jail..." (emphasis mine).
My strong response to his incompetence, to his pro-Nazi-Muslim and anti-Jewish and anti-Christian stance, has been made very public, since my letter to Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur is available for all to see and read: Edward Abington: political prostitute.
The United States State Department, Senators DeWine and Voinovich, Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur and the Israeli authorities among many others, know I was never deported from Israel for anything other than "an expired visa." Which is just another lie, since it was not expired as I had that special piece of paper from the Ministry of the Interior, but they used that lame excuse to cover themselves since the plain truth was, as Gershon Salomon, chairman of the Temple Mount Faithful stated, "this is a clear cut case of politico-religious discrimination."
May Israel right the wrong and lift the ban against my entry to the Promised Land of Israel, the Holy Land to Christians and Jews, as recorded in our sacred writings.
