On 29th November 2012, Australia and New Zealand, together with 136 other states, voted to adopt a UN General Assembly resolution granting "Palestine" recognized observer status in the UN as a non-member state. This and other UN resolutions reflect the widely-held opinion that Israel's annexation of East Jerusalem, its continued "occupation" of the "Occupied Palestinian Territories", and the Jewish settlements in "East Jerusalem" and the West Bank, are illegal under international law. In the eyes of many states, Israel's settlement policies are illegal and impeding the peace process.Andrew Tucker

But is this really so? And does international law really require a two-state solution based on the 1967 lines? ANDREW TUCKER presents an analysis of the history of Jerusalem and the West Bank, the principles of international law, and the U.N. system which throws serious doubts on many common perceptions about international law and the claims being made concerning Israel/Palestine. He will present arguments which prove that such claims infringe the existing rights of the Jewish people, undermine Israel's security, which in turn undermines the rights and prosperity of both Jews and Arabs, and threatens the status of Jerusalem as a city where the protection of Muslim, Jewish and Christian holy places is guaranteed. 

ANDREW TUCKER was born and raised in Australia. He studied law at Melbourne and Oxford Universities, and practised as an attorney in Australia, UK and Netherlands for 20 years in the fields of international and EU law. Since 2004 Andrew has been Executive Director of Christians for Israel International, and Legal Counsel to the European Coalition for Israel (a Brussels-based foundation dedicated to defending Israel's rights in the EU and UN institutions). Andrew is married to Marianne and they have four children. They live in Amersfoort, The Netherlands.

Gershon Salomon: Building the Third Temple DVD

Gershon Salomon is the founder and leader of the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement. In his private life, Gershon is an expert researcher and lecturer in Middle Eastern studies.

Even as a child Gershon knew that G‑d was calling him to continue the work for the redemption of the people of Israel. As a youth, Gershon was involved in the 1948 War of Independence where he was arrested at age 11 by the British Mandatory police. Later, when he joined the IDF, he led a company in the Golan Heights. During a battle in 1958 with the Syrian Army Gershon was injured accidently when, in the heat and confusion of battle, he was run over by a tank. Syrian soldiers, who are trained to shoot again any wounded Israeli soldiers, had begun to take over the battlefield. Suddenly, when they were about to fire upon Gershon, they all ran away. Later, these same Syrians soldiers reported to United Nations officers that they had seen thousands of angels around this IDF officer and had, therefore, fled. It was at this time that Gershon heard the voice of G‑d speaking to him that He was not yet finished with him. Gershon understood this as a divine call to consecrate himself to the work of the Temple Mount.

After spending an entire year in the hospital, Gershon had recovered sufficiently to return to his unit, even though he was walking on crutches. He continued his service in defense of the land of Israel. He feels that the greatest moment of his life, so far, was his participation in the liberation of the Temple Mount and Jerusalem during the 1967 Six-Day War. He believes that at that moment the circle was closed between his generation and the generation of the destruction of the Temple in 70 ce

After the Six day War, then-defense minister of Israel, Moshe Dayan, made a terrible decision when he turned control of the Temple Mount back to the Muslim authorities of Jerusalem. Since that time Muslim Arabs have maintained control of this crucial biblical site. Gershon recognized the tragedy of this action and formed the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement organization. Since that time he has dedicated himself to the vision of consecrating the Temple Mount to the Name of G‑d, to removing the Muslim shrines placed there as a symbol of Muslim conquest, to the rebuilding of the Third Temple on the Temple Mount, and the godly redemption of the People and the Land of Israel.

In this recent DVD, Gershon shares about his life, his inspiring faith in God's power of protection, and the ongoing work to rebuild the Temple in preparation for the Messianic Age.
