‘Jeopardy!’ Under Fire for Telling Truth About Bethlehem Being in Israel


BIN: The $200 clue in the category “Where’s that Church?” was “Built in the 300s A.D., the Church of the Nativity.”

Contestant Katie Needle buzzed in and answered, “What is Palestine?”

Host Alex Trebek rejected her answer and accepted contestant Jack McGuire’s answer of “What is Israel?”

Opinion: Way to go Alex (and Jeopardy).

Excerpt: eBook ‘Blood Feud’:

On September 30, 2016, President Obama spoke at the funeral of former Prime Minister Shimon Peres. A transcript released from the White House listed the location of the speech as:

Jerusalem Israel

Hours later a corrected transcript showed the location as:

Jerusalem Israel

UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization) followed with a series of votes and declarations designed to erase any Jewish connection to the Temple Mount – the US remained silent:

  • October 13, 2016 UNESCO votes that there is no connection between the Temple Mount and Jerusalem
  • October 26, 2016 UNESCO adopts a second resolution denying Jewish connection to the Temple Mount
  • November 8, 2016 Donald Trump is elected President of the United States
  • November 15, 2016 Donald Trump says he will move the US embassy to Jerusalem
  • December 16, 2016 Donald Trump picks David Freidman as US Ambassador to Israel

Resolution 2334

The following series of moves by the Obama/Kerry team, in conjunction with the United Nations and the Vatican, led to the carefully orchestrated UN Security Council vote:

December 23, 2016, President Obama instructs Samantha Power to abstain, as 14 members of the UN Security Council passed Resolution 2334:

  • That Israel′s settlement activity constitutes a “flagrant violation” of international law and has “no legal validity”
  • It further demands that Israel stop such activity and fulfill its obligations as an occupying power under the Fourth Geneva Convention

On December 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump ended Barack Obama’s long held goal of dividing Jerusalem (in violation of Joel 3:1-2), by declaring the city Israel’s eternal capital.
