  1. In Muslim societies throughout the history of Islam, Jews lived quite well. Take Maimonides, for instance, who was a prominent physician in Iberia. When the Jews were exiled from parts of Europe by the Christian monarchies, the Muslims were often more than willing to take them in. Many who left Spain received asylum in the Ottoman Empire. (Christians did not fare quite as well in Muslim lands, but that’s another story.)

    So, the idea that the Palestinians would kill all of the Jews in Palestine if they were able to is based on a false premise. Under a Muslim occupation, the Jews had relatively little discomfort. But the situation is very different in the reverse: under a Jewish occupation, the Muslims are indeed suffering tremendously. If not for this suffering, I guarantee you, Muslims would have no beef at all with Jews.

  2. Jug,

    It is time for you to stop listening to the brainwashing of the liberal media and look up some real facts and statistics. Watch this video:

    It is humorous but brings up just a few truths that you seem to have forgotten about. And for the record, I do not endorse the man or the organization that published the video.

    Shalom

  3. One of the main reasons that the violence and tensions have strengthened since Israel regained statehood in 1948 is because the existence of Israel is seen to be a blow to Allah’s supremacy.

    “Once the forces of Islam conquer a land or territory, it is to remain under Islamic dominion forever (‘for generations’), and it is a mortal affront to the supremacy of Islam when such territories would ever be lost to the dominion of Islam and revert to previous – infidel – ownership as was the case in Palestine. It was a Muslim controlled territory (under the Muslim Turks and later the Muslim Arabs) and reverted by the decree of the U.N. resolution back to its previous owners: the Jews.”

    So in all actuality it is a war between the supremacy of Allah, or Yahweh. The existence of the State of Israel is seen as a blow to Allah.

    Here are a few articles from the Palestinian Charter, 1968, which are geared towards Israels annihilation.

    ————————–

    Article 19:

    The partition of Palestine in 1947 and the establishment of the state of Israel are entirely illegal, regardless of the passage of time, because they were contrary to the will of the Palestinian people and to their natural right in their homeland, and inconsistent with the principles embodied in the Charter of the United Nations; particularly the right to self-determination.

    Article 20:

    The Balfour Declaration, the Mandate for Palestine, and everything that has been based upon them, are deemed null and void. Claims of historical or religious ties of Jews with Palestine are incompatible with the facts of history and the true conception of what constitutes statehood. Judaism, being a religion, is not an independent nationality. Nor do Jews constitute a single nation with an identity of its own; they are citizens of the states to which they belong.

    Article 21:

    The Arab Palestinian people, expressing themselves by the armed Palestinian revolution, reject all solutions which are substitutes for the total liberation of Palestine and reject all proposals aiming at the liquidation of the Palestinian problem, or its internationalization.

    Article 22:

    Zionism is a political movement organically associated with international imperialism and antagonistic to all action for liberation and to progressive movements in the world. It is racist and fanatic in its nature, aggressive, expansionist, and colonial in its aims, and fascist in its methods. Israel is the instrument of the Zionist movement, and geographical base for world imperialism placed strategically in the midst of the Arab homeland to combat the hopes of the Arab nation for liberation, unity, and progress. Israel is a constant source of threat vis-a-vis peace in the Middle East and the whole world. Since the liberation of Palestine will destroy the Zionist and imperialist presence and will contribute to the establishment of peace in the Middle East, the Palestinian people look for the support of all the progressive and peaceful forces and urge them all, irrespective of their affiliations and beliefs, to offer the Palestinian people all aid and support in their just struggle for the liberation of their homeland.

    ——————————

    “Since the liberation of Palestine will destroy the Zionist and imperialist presence…” – Article 22

    “The Arab League Secretary General Azzam Pasha, said on 1 May 1948, thus even before the Jewish State was born:

    “If the Zionists dare establish a state in Falastin, the massacre which will ensue here will dwarf anything which Genghis Khan and Hitler did.””

    “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.” (The Martyr, Imam Hassan el-Banna)

  4. The idea that Jews and Christians are in one camp together while Muslims are in another comes from the false narrative being promoted by modern Evangelicalism, which has a strong Judaizing streak, and by mainstream American conservatism, which is mainly a Jewish movement.

    Let us be clear: Christians are in a camp by themselves. Jews and Muslims actually do very well together, primarily because their religions are very similar, especially in that they come from the Devil. The only bad blood that exists between Jews and Muslims is in Israel. If it exists anywhere else, it is because of the policies of the Zionists. But, in any Muslim country, believe me, Jews are treated with quite a bit of respect, unlike Christians.

    The Israelis tolerate the Christians because they wish to keep up the facade that they are promoting a multi-cultural society; but that is neither the vision of the founders of Israel nor the ultimate aim of Zionism. Moreover, if the Jews were so tolerant of Christians, the ACLU, SPLC, etc wouldn’t be giving Christians such a hard time at every turn, the media wouldn’t be devastating Christian values and encouraging our children to become transgender, so please give me a break.

  5. Hey Jud tell me, have you been in a coma for the last 40 years ? Have you Seen what’s been going on in the Islamic state ( ISIS ) wake up don’t be naive Six million died thinking like that . Ideals are Peacefull history is Violent

  6. Jug,

    If you only can spare a few minutes for truth, start at 50:00 and consider claims refuted.

    Shalom

  7. Thanks for sharing that Bo. The first hand footage goes a long way to back up some of the claims thrown out there. At 1:05:40 for the next bit it shows first hand footage of the way that Islam views the existence of Israel as an afront to Allah.

  8. Benjamin,

    I thought that the documentary was pretty fairly done. I have heard the extreme rhetoric from both sides of the issue, but this did seem to offer moderation. It also offered about the only solution to the problem…real education of real history without indoctrination and brainwashing. Other than this solution, escalating violence and war is the only possible outcome…but we know that there will be a person in the not too distant future that will offer a solution that seems to bring peace, but it will end in a war to beat all wars…so…

    Shalom

  9. Jug and Benjamin,

    Please read the whole article that the following quote comes from.

    “The issue of confiscated and reappropriated assets is habitually brought up by Palestinian advocates, albeit in a one-sided way. In a detailed 1957 report, the Arab states demanded at least $3.5 billion for lost Palestinian assets,[52] a figure that even U.N. officials considered inflated. Arab sources usually refrain from referring to the problem of Jewish property. In her 2009 article “From Plundering to Plundering: Israel and the Assets of the Palestinian Refugees,” for example, Palestinian advocate and Israeli citizen Suhad Bishara demanded the full return of all Palestinian property to its owners in accordance with the current value but studiously avoided any attempt to deal with the more substantial expropriated Jewish property.[53] The Israeli-Palestinian privately negotiated Geneva accord also addressed reparations for Palestinian refugees and their descendants (requiring no evidence of property ownership) but totally ignored Jewish property appropriated by the Arab states ostensibly on behalf of the Palestinian refugees.[54]

    Finally, a comparison of lost Palestinian assets and those of the dispossessed Jews bears review. According to 1950 U.N. estimates, Palestinian assets amounted to approximately £120 million, which, in today’s terms, would be the equivalent of $3.4 billion. Meanwhile, the worth of Jewish assets left behind was estimated in 2003 at over $100 billion.[55] Put differently, according to U.N. data, the total value of Palestinian assets is lower than just the minimum estimate of the confiscated assets of Iraq’s Jews (approximately £156 million). In other words, any Palestinian demand for reparations has been paid many times over although the funds went to their host Arab countries.”- http://www.meforum.org/3643/palestinian-refugee-problem
