Campaign Holy Land

Jewish ownership over the Land of Israel is mentioned numerous times in the Bible. The following are a few examples of quotes from the Bible which show that by Divine decree the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish People.

Genesis Chapter 15, Verses 18-21: G-d's covenant with, Abraham, the father of the Jewish Nation regarding the land: On that day, G-d made a covenant with Abraham saying "To your descendants have I given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates River: the Kennite, the Kenizzite, and the Kadmonite; the Hittie, the Perizzite, and the Rephaim; the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Giragashite, and the Jebusite."

Exodus Chapter 13, verses 16-17: Moses is commanded by G-d to announce the prophecy of redemption, to take the Jews out of Egypt and bring them to what will become the land of Israel : Go and gather the elders of Israel and say to them, G-d the G-d of your forefathers, has appeared to me, the G-d of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob, saying I have surely remembered you and what is done to you in Egypt. And I have said, I shall bring you up from the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Canaanite, the Hittie, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivvite and the Jebusite, to a land flowing with milk and honey.

Numbers Chapter 34 verses 1-12 : This outlines the boundaries of the Holy Land which G-d commanded to the Jewish People for an eternal inheritance. The following map shows the boundaries as stated in the Bible:

The Jewish People own the Land of Israel, not because of the United Nations declaration, but because of G-d's declaration. The entire world, including the Land of Israel belongs to G-d. And He chose to give the Land of Israel to the Jews.

In light of the above, the claim made that the Jews have stolen the Palestinians' land is completely unfounded. It can be shown that their claims to the "West Bank" and Gaza clearly fall within the boundaries of the Jewish Promised Land. To say to the contrary would be a denial of the Bible.

The reason for this denial could simply be the result of a lack of knowledge regarding the subject. Therefore we started Campaign Holy Land to disseminate the truth. And we are asking you for your help.
