Israel or Palestine?- The Facts
Here is a list of some' conveniently overlooked
facts in the current Middle East situation.
1. Nationhood and Jerusalem Israel became a
nation in 1312 B.C.E., two thousand years
before the rise of Islam.
2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying
themselves as part of a Palestinian people in
1967, two decades after the establishment of
the modern State of Israel.
3. Since the Israelite conquest in 1272 B.C.E. the
Jews have had dominion over the land for 1000
years with a continuous presence in the land for
the past 3,300 years.
4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in
635 C.E. lasted no more than 22 years.
5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been
the Israelite I Jewish capital. Jerusalem has never
been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even
when the Jordanians occupied the city of
Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their
capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.
6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in the
Hebrew Scriptures dating back some 3000 Years.
Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran. King
David founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed
never came to Jerusalem.
7. The American poet & author Mark Twain
visited the Holy Land in the 1860's. In a poll he
carried in Jerusalem, and found 4000 Christians,
7000 Muslims and 40,000 Jews.(from his book
- Innocents Abroad)
8. Arab and Jewish Refugees. In 1948 the Arab
refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by
Arab leaders promising to purge the land of
Jews. 68% of the Arabs left without ever seeing
an Israeli soldier.
9. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel
in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The
number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is
estimated to be the same.
10. Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not
absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to
which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory.
Of the 100 million refugees since World War II,
theirs is the only refugee group in the world that
has never been absorbed or integrated into their
own peoples' lands. More than 6 million Jewish
refugees have been completely absorbed into
Israel, the size of the state of New Jersey.
11. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee
from Arab lands due to Arab brutality,
persecution and pogroms
12. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were
desecrated and the Jews were denied access to
places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim
and Christian sites have been preserved and
made accessible to people of all faiths.
These are incredible times. We have to ask
what our role should be. What will we tell our
grandchildren we did when there was a
turning point in Jewish destiny, an
opportunity to make a difference?

Archaeologists Discover Rare Find West of Jerusalem



“The tribe of Benjamin, clan by clan, had the following cities: Jericho, Beth Hoglah, Emek Keziz,... Mizpak, Kephirah, Mozah....”(Joshua 18:21–28)



Archaeologists recently discovered a 3,000-year-old structure and a rare cache of sacred vessels at Tel Motza during a dig conducted ahead of the renovation of the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway. The site is within walking distance of Jerusalem.
The vessels and the structure, which is likely a temple, might be evidence of a ritual cult dating back to the time of King David (early First-Temple period).



The find is considered rare since many ritual sites were abolished around the time of King Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah to focus ritual practices at the First Temple in Jerusalem, said the dig directors, Anna Eirikh, Dr. Hamoudi Khalaily, and Shua Kisilevitz, in a joint statement released by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA).



“The ritual building at Tel Motza is an unusual and striking find, in light of the fact that there are hardly any remains of ritual buildings of the period in Judea at the time of the First Temple.



The uniqueness of the structure is even more remarkable because of the vicinity of the site’s proximity to the capital city of Jerusalem, which acted as the Kingdom’s main sacred center at the time.”
The archaeologists were excavating prior to the expansion of the highway, in order to preserve history before construction began.



The ancient ruins in the Motza area were first excavated by the Israel Antiquities Authority during the 1990s and have yielded other important finds, including a large structure with storehouses and a number of silos. Archaeologists claim that Jerusalem’s grain supplies were stored here.



To make way for Israel’s growing population, Highway 1 eventually will be built over Tel Motza, which will be sealed and protected.



“He [Hezekiah] removed the high places, smashed the sacred stones and cut down the Asherah poles. He broke into pieces the bronze snake Moses had made, for up to that time the Israelites had been burning incense to it.(It was called Nehushtan.)”(2 Kings 18:4)

Arab Human Rights Group Challenges Palestinian Authority Abuses



A scathing report published by the Arab Organization for Human Rights (AOHR) on Friday accused the Palestinian Authority (PA) of “inhumane practices and human rights violations” against Palestinian civilians.



The report listed torture, degrading treatment, harassment, and repeated or extended detention among the human rights violations. The AOHR holds PA President Mahmoud Abbas responsible for all of these abuses.



Of the 13,271 Palestinians detained by the PA from 2007 – 2011, the report states, 96 present were tortured, resulting in six deaths.



“With regards to the effect of detention on the lives of the detainees, 60% of those in the study explained that they now suffer from chronic diseases due to torture and the poor conditions in which they were held in detention.



On another level, 60% confirmed that repeated or extensive detention reduced them to a state of acute poverty,” the report stated.(JPost)



The human rights group, which is based in London, has called on the United Nations, the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to “put pressure on Mahmoud Abbas to stop political detention as it harms the interests of all Palestinians.”



Sadly, such oppressive behaviour is not uncommon in the Middle East. The PA, Hamas, and many Arab countries in the Middle East do not allow their citizens to enjoy a free, democratic society. The State of Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East where the rights of civilians are safeguarded and such atrocities cannot take place.

Read this and weep all you anti-Israel lobby or click the like to hear the truth.

&sn s=em

I am the former commander of the British forces in Afghanistan. I served with NATO and the United Nations; commanded troops in Northern Ireland, Bosnia and Macedonia; and participated in the Gulf War. I spent considerable time in Iraq since the 2003 invasion, and worked on international terrorism for the UK Government’s Joint Intelligence Committee.

Mr. President, based on my knowledge and experience, I can say this: During Operation Cast Lead, the Israeli Defence Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare.

Israel did so while facing an enemy that deliberately positioned its military capability behind the human shield of the civilian population.

Hamas, like Hizballah, are expert at driving the media agenda. Both will always have people ready to give interviews condemning Israeli forces for war crimes. They are adept at staging and distorting incidents.

The IDF faces a challenge that we British do not have to face to the same extent. It is the automatic, Pavlovian presumption by many in the international media, and international human rights groups, that the IDF are in the wrong, that they are abusing human rights.

The truth is that the IDF took extraordinary measures to give Gaza civilians notice of targeted areas, dropping over 2 million leaflets, and making over 100,000 phone calls. Many missions that could have taken out Hamas military capability were aborted to prevent civilian casualties. During the conflict, the IDF allowed huge amounts of humanitarian aid into Gaza. To deliver aid virtually into your enemy's hands is, to the military tactician, normally quite unthinkable. But the IDF took on those risks.

Despite all of this, of course innocent civilians were killed. War is chaos and full of mistakes. There have been mistakes by the British, American and other forces in Afghanistan and in Iraq, many of which can be put down to human error. But mistakes are not war crimes.

More than anything, the civilian casualties were a consequence of Hamas’ way of fighting. Hamas deliberately tried to sacrifice their own civilians.

Mr. President, Israel had no choice apart from defending its people, to stop Hamas from attacking them with rockets.

And I say this again: the IDF did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare.

Thank you, Mr. President.

And of course the part you always overlook, and really the only pertinent one. The folks who lived in Palestine and were forced out are war refugees according to international law. The Israeli government, going against international law, will not let them return to thier homes. The Israeli government, going against international law, is occupying land set aside for the folks known as Palestinains.

It does not matter if Israel was a kingdome in the past, just as it makes no difference that the Israeli kingdom was not the first in the area.

What counts is, there are several million people who would like to go home, and you and your heroes are preventing them form doing so.

That land has belonged to Israel for 3500 years, After the 6 day war the agressors (Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and so on) would not allow their own people to return to their countries so they caused the refugee problem today, the arab terrorist nations that surround Israel are the true culprits, and even you could see that if you were not so blinded by anti-Israel hate.

Idiot.
Damn dude you ARE an idiot aren't you? It's always the Palestinians who start it. Note to Steve. Retread the first 2 sentences. It does not matter in the least how Israel reacts to a Palestinian provocation. When Palestines only reason for being is to attack and try to destroy Israel then it doesn't matter what Israel does to retaliate. To stop retaliations Palestine needs to control it's people but its hate that's in their hearts and it won't stop until they are wiped of the face of the earth. Take them out now Israel and don't stop until every last one of the Palestinian dogs are dead and their bodies burned.

It is terrible in Syria the bombing if civilians is unforgettable just like the arab terrorists in Gaza bombing Israeli civilians. One question that needs answering is why the world and the UN are still ignoring it and attacking Israel
The UN is controlled by the arab pimps and they dont give a shit about any muslim anywhere. See Gaza refusing to let in 13000 Syrian war refugees. The more blood muslims see the better they feel even if its their own mothers.
