Default Jerusalem Riddles

Shalom aleichem.

I have two types of riddles. They are not exactly riddles, but they are still interesting. If this is in the wrong forum, feel free to move it. Thanks.

Here are the 'riddles', although they are more like just questions:

What nation lies in the centre of Jerusalem?

What, and where, is the Ark in the nation that lies at the centre of Jerusalem?

I would be interested to see what people come up with.

Todah (Thanks),

Dan

Default Answers

Since no-one answered, I'll say what the answers to these questions are, below:

This is the answer: JerUSAlem, or the USA is at the centre of Jerusalem.

The answer is: Arkansas.

These questions, and the answers, mean nothing in religion, except to a few Historicist Protestants in the US. They are, however, interesting nonetheless.

Jerusalem is Daroussalaam in Arabic. It basically means place of peace/love/freedom. Today the capital of Tanzania is called Daroussalaam. In the Qur'an Heaven/Eden/Garden is called Daroussalaam. Our purpose is to build our Heaven/Eden/Garden in this world, is it possible, maybe not, but I am happy to live in this dream.

I bet the inhabitants of the modern day city laugh at the irony in its meaning..

Default Jerusalem

Hmm, that's interesting. In Hebrew, iirc, the name 'Jerusalem' would be 'Yerushalayim', a uni-plural. As there are no 'J's in Hebrew (or 'X's or 'W's for that matter), the 'J' would usually be indicative of the Hebrew language using a 'Y', such as 'Yeshuah' and 'Yahushoa', both rendering the Anglicised 'Jesus' or 'Joshua'.

The 'Jerusalem Riddles' of this thread are only going to make sense in English, and the answer cannot be found without knowing the English i.e. in Hebrew and other languages the three letters 'USA' would not be found in the noun 'Jerusalem'.

While the riddles shouldn't be taken as being indicative of anything but coincidence, it is still interesting nonetheless.

People has to define life, death, truth, peace, freedom again.

If I remember correctly, and I don't think I do, Jews call Jerusalem the 'City of Eternal Peace', although as you say, it is a bit ironic that Jerusalem is in a war-torn nation. The State of Israel, I believe, should in fact be called the 'State of Judah', but that's just my interpretation.

Default Israel of Yahweh

Israel today, seems so very far from the Israel envisioned by Moses and the ancient prophets and patriarchs. Ishmael and Isaac still arguing over the inheritance is rather disappointing.

Agape Unto You

True true. My opinion, and this is coming from a Jew, is that the State of Israel should not exist. That land belongs to the Palestinians. Yeah, we lived there prior to them, but we have no right to go and effectively 'steal' back our land.

Palestine should have their land back. No-one has the right to take land and possessions off people, especially since it was a long time ago since they had it. You could say the Jews 'invaded' the land, which I think is the closest word to what we did.

Yes, Jews have a right to live without persecution, but that doesn't give me or my people the right to persecute others.

Israel is meant to be restored by the Messiah, Joshua, whoever he is, was, or will be. Israel is meant to be restored by God and His appointed Messiah, not secular governments. I do understand why the Jews selected Israel, why wouldn't they; but this begs the question, do we as a people have the right to possess that land, especially since we hadn't lived there en masse for well over over a thousand years?

I think the Jews have no right to that land at this moment in time, especially because we invaded it. The UNO (United Nations Organisation, so-called) gave us that land, yet nobody asked the Palestinians, who lived there, what they wanted. To me, this does show that Israel now is not as God wanted it, you are correct. Only one person has the right and power to restore Israel, and then paradise: Joshua, Yahushoa, the one most Christians call 'Jesus'.
