The Palestinian view of Peaceful Co-Existence

Haifa -like Tel Aviv both have large Arab populations. The Jews together with their Arabs Christian and Moslem neighbors, those whose elders refused to believe the lies in the radio broadcasts of The Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini  in 1948 and remained in Haifa. Have attempted to live in harmony and peace. Those Arabs living in the West Bank and Gaza have always secretly despised them and have worked to undermine the peaceful co-existence.

Sheik Ahmed Yassin who was a Palestinian imam, a Muslim leader of the line of Ali held by Shiites to be the divinely appointed, sinless, infallible successors of Muhammad and politician. Sheik Ahmed Yassin had been the founder of Hamas had said that the suicide bomber was "an exceptional weapon" and that; "The Jews attack and kill our civilians - we will kill theirs. When the first drop of the martyr's blood spills on the ground, he goes to paradise. His victims, the Jews, go to hell."

Under the leadership of Sheik Ahmed Yassin Hamas gained popularity in Palestinian society by establishing hospitals, education systems, libraries and other services, but it has also claimed responsibility for a number of suicide attacks targeting Israeli civilians, leading to its designation as a terrorist organization by the European Union, Israel, Japan, Canada,  and the United States. Hamas opposes the peace process and the very existence of the state of Israel.

Yassin, who was a quadriplegic, was also nearly blind. He had used a wheelchair since a sporting accident at the age of 12 In his youth he like Arafat he had became involved with a Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. He was killed on 22 March 2004 when an Israeli helicopter gunship fired a missile at him as he was being wheeled from early morning prayers.

The Matza restaurant suicide bombing occurred on March 31, 2002, when a "Falestinian" Hamas suicide bomber detonated his bomb inside the popular Matza restaurant in Haifa, Israel, near the Grand Canyon shopping mall, murdering 16 Israeli civilians and injuring over 40 people.The military wing of Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack, stating that the bombings would continue as long as the siege of then President of the Palestinian National Authority, Yasser Arafat in Ramallah during Israel's Operation Defensive Shield that was meant to stop such attacks stayed in effect stayed in effect. In addition, Hamas spokesman stated that the suicide bomber was a 22-year-old Palestinian named Shadi Tubasi who originated from the Jenin area.

Shadi Tubasi
The attack occurred at 14:45 during the Passover vacation in Israel, and the restaurant was crowded with families having their lunch. Despite the Passover suicide bombing which occurred just four days earlier in Netanya, and the tense atmosphere following it, the clients and restaurant owners were not particularly worried about security: The Matza restaurant is operated by an Israeli Arab family, and its multi-ethnic nature was thought to make it an unlikely choice for a terrorist attack. The force of the explosion tore the roof off the one-story building, and blew out the windows, instantly killing 14 people, and leaving horrific scenes of people on fire, and people with lost limbs. Over 40 people were injured. Of the 16 victims, 14 were local Haifa residents, and one a waiter from a nearby Bedouin village. Two families were completely wiped out, and other families suffered death and grave injuries to multiple family members.

The co owned Christian Arab-Jewish Maxim restaurant, which is located at the seafront near the southern boundary of the city of Haifa, was frequently attended by both Arab and Jewish local populations, and was widely seen as a symbol of peaceful coexistence in Haifa. The restaurant is also the favorite dining place of  the famous Israeli football club Maccabi Haifa.

On October 4, 2003, the 28-year-old Palestinian suicide bomber Hanadi Jaradat from Jenin in Shomron -the Northern "West Bank" detonated the explosive belt she was wearing inside the restaurant and 21 Israelis (18 Jews and 3 Christian Arabs from Fassuta on the border with Lebanon) were murdered. 51 others were wounded. The bomb included metal fragments packed around the explosive core,that sprayed around the restaurant, maximizing lethal effect. According to Haifa
police sources, the aftermath was gruesome, with some of the dead still sitting upright at their tables, while others, including children and babies, were slammed against the walls. Due to the force of the explosion, all that remained of Jaradat was her head.

Among the victims were two families-(Grandparents and their grandchildren) and four children, including a two-month-old baby. Three Maccabi Haifa officials were lightly injured in the bombing.

Oren Almog, who was ten years old at time of the bombing, survived the attack but was blinded by the blast. He lost two of his grandparents, his father, his brother and his cousin.
The names of the victims murdered in cold-blood:

At the time of her suicide, Hanadi Tayseer Abdul Malek Jaradat was a law student due to qualify as a lawyer in a few weeks. She had studied law at Yarmouk University in Jordan. Instead of going to the law firm where she was articling, she went to Haifa and blew herself up in a crowded restaurant. Jaradat reportedly carried out the bombing as an act of revenge after Israel Defense Forces undercover operatives in Jenin killed her cousin (Salah, 34) and her younger brother (Fadi, 25), both of whom were members of Islamic Jihad, with her cousin being considered to be a senior member of the Al-Quds Brigades group.  Earlier, when she was 21, her fiancé had been killed by Israeli security forces. Following the killing of her cousin and brother, Jaradat went into mourning and began study of the Koran and fasting two days a week.

And what was the "Falestinian" response? 

Jaradat was proclaimed by the Islamic Jihad as the "Bride of Haifa" to honor her "marriage to the soil of her homeland", an honor previously reserved only to men. Within several days of the bombing, trophy cards with her picture, labelled "Hanadi the Bride of Haifa", were being handed out in Gaza.

In response to his daughter's actions, her father Taisir declined all condolences, instead saying that he was proud of what his daughter had done, and that "I will accept only congratulations for what she did. This was a gift she gave me, the homeland and the Palestinian people."

A member of Hamas Walid Fayad, who was the mourning for the suicide bomber Shadi Tubasi at his home was asked by an Australian reporter; "Why attack Israeli civilians?" answered "When the Israeli started the targeted assassination of our leaders, we decided that if any of our martyrs could get into Israel and reach a target where people are gathered in a restaurant or a street, then they should explode themselves there.
Khaled, another member of Hamas and a hotel worker, spoke in wonderment of a martyr's encounter at the gates of heaven as someone having their file checked: "There will be blessings for 70 of his family and friends. The 72 virgins are real - their skin is so pale and beautiful that you can see the blood in their veins. If one of these virgins spits in the ocean, the seawater becomes sweet. The martyr is so special he does not feel the pain of being in the grave and all that his family has to do to cleanse his file thoroughly, is to repay his outstanding debts."

Hamas sources had priced a complete suicide-bombing mission at up to $4500 US. However, a document of the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade; which grew out of the impoverished Balata refugee camp on the outskirts of Nablus, in an attempt by Yasser Arafat's Fatah faction to mobilize younger members who were switching allegiance to the hugely popular Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The document which was recovered from the wreckage of Arafat's headquarters in Ramallah during Israel's Operation Defensive Shield, labeled the document  as the "invoice of terror" for it itemized the cost for manufacturing suicide bomb belts at cost NIS700 sheckels to produce.

In October 2012, the Arab Lawyers Union awarded their top award to Hanadi Jaradat, and sent a delegation to her family to present them with the award. Ayman Abu Eisheh, who is a member of the Palestine Committee at the Arab Lawyers Union, explained that the lawyers were proud of Jaradat, saying that suicide bombing was "in defense of Palestine and the Arab nation."

Fiction and Lies of the Nachba in a Taxi

A typical case of lies from the "Falestinian" fantasy associated with the "Nachbah" told to a friend of mine. 

"Today I had the most intriguing and unsettling experience – had to take a taxi – very pleasant driver who I engaged in conversation as I usually do as I’ve met some fascinating people and heard some amazing stories.
He told me he was a REFUGEE from JERUSALEM?? – Aha. Interesting beginning.
He went on to explain that his family were "Arabs of the Mandated Area" (Falestinians) who had had a farm in a village about 6 kilometres from Nazareth. They, had been there for generations, but the Zionists had gone in and exterminated everyone in the village in 1948."

Wait didn't he say that he was a refugee from Jerusalem or an unnamed village near Nazareth?

 Some places in the Mandated Areas were entirely destroyed and left uninhabitable; others were left with a few hundred residents and were repopulated by Jewish immigrants, then renamed.  I have presented the villages mentioned from "Falestinian" sources.
Please note that in all the cases the towns and or villages were built on top of sites that were once Jewish and the names are similar to those of the previous vanquished Israelite communities.

Additionally as to his claim that "the Zionists had gone in and exterminated everyone in the village in 1948." Then pray tell how did he come to be if as he claims "everyone was exterminated!!???" Additionally there are no stories of any alleged "massacres" or atrocities in the British mandatory or post War of Independence UN accounts of these villages? 

Below is a list of the Towns and villages according to the Mandatory Palestine Government Nazareth Subdistrict and their story.

al-Subeih- The small Bedouin village is not even indicated on any British Mandatory Government Map, ( see image from map) and there are no references to it any sources of the Mandatory Authorities.

Indur (Arabic: إندور‎) was a Palestinian village, located 10.5 kilometres (6.5 mi) southeast of Nazareth. Its name preserves that of ancient Endor, a Canaanite city state thought to have been located 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) to the northeast. The village was depopulated during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war and its inhabitants became refugees, some of whom were internally displaced. In Israel today, there are a few thousand internally displaced Palestinians who hail from Indur, and continue to demand their right of return.  Sheikh Tawfiq Ibrahim, one of the leaders of the 1936–39 Arab revolt in Palestine and an associate of Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, was from Indur.The village was occupied by Israel's Golani Brigade on May 24, 1948. 
The Golani Brigade went on "cleansing and defending" the area until early June

Ma'alul was a Palestinian village, made up primarily of Palestinian Christians, that was depopulated and destroyed by Israel during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. Located six kilometers west of the city of Nazareth, many of its inhabitants became internally displaced refugees, after taking refuge in Nazareth and the neighbouring town of Yafa an-Naseriyye. Despite having never left the territory that came to form part of Israel, the majority of the villagers of Maalul, and other Palestinian villages like Andor and Al-Mujidal, were declared "absentees", allowing for the confiscation of their land under the Absentees Property Law.
Ma'alul with the Biblical town of Nahalal in the of the land of the Tribe of Zebulun, and also a Levite city (Joshua 21:35). Nahalal did not yield to the conquering Israelites initially, due to its strong fortifications, but they did pay taxes to them. 
Archaeological findings have identified remains from the Israelite period. During the Roman period was called "Mahalul". It flourished from the commercially strategic location during the Roman/Byzantine times (Mishna and Talmud). It is mentioned in the Jerusalem Talmud (Megilla page 2, 2 1:1), and listed among the walled cities from the period of Joshua.

Al-Mujaydil (Arabic: المْجيدل‎ (also: al-Mujeidil) was a former Palestinian village located 6 km southwest of Nazareth. Al-Mujaydil was one of a few towns that achieved local council status by the Mandatory Palestine government. In 1945, the village had a population of 1,900 and total land area of 18,836 dunams – mostly Arab-owned. The population was almost entirely Christian and the town contained a Roman Catholic church and monastery.

The same area today
Sepphoris (Ancient Greek: Σέπφωρις), also known as Tzippori (Hebrew: צִפּוֹרִי), Diocesaraea (Ancient Greek: Διοκαισάρεια), and Saffuriya (Arabic: صفورية‎, also transliterated Safurriya and Suffurriye) is a village and an archaeological site located in the central Galilee region of Israel, 6 kilometers (3.7 mi) north-northwest of Nazareth.
Following the Bar Kokhba revolt of 132–135, Sepphoris was one of the centers in Galilee where rabbinical families from Judea relocated. Remains of a 6th-century synagogue have been uncovered in the lower section of the site. In the 7th century, the town was conquered by the Arab caliphates like much of the rest of Palestine. Successive Arab and Islamic imperial authorities ruled the area until the end of the first World War I, with a brief interruption during the Crusades.

The Village population made fearful from stories of atrocities and massacres on Arab League radio broadcast  during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War and their  the incessant calls to make way for the victorious armies fled in mass.

The Claim of Ethnic Cleansing

Neither Ben-Gurion nor the Zionist movement ‘planned’ the displacement of the 700,000-odd Arabs who moved or were removed from their homes in 1948. On the contrary there was no such plan or blanket policy.

This is reflected in the Israeli Declaration of Independence were it states clearly;
“We appeal - in the very midst of the onslaught launched against us now for months - to the Arab inhabitants of the State of Israel to preserve peace and participate in the up building of the State on the basis of full and equal citizenship and due representation in all its provisional and permanent institutions.”
Transfer was never adopted by the Zionist movement as part of its platform; on the contrary, the movement always accepted that the Jewish state that arose would contain a sizable Arab minority.

In 1947-48 it is well documented as to how the "Arabs of the Mandated Area" gleefully joined the invading Arab League armies and launched a war whose aim – which they have never denied – was to destroy the nascent state of Israel (and quite probably its inhabitants as well).

Egyptian Moslem Brotherhood leader and cleric Muhammad Hussein Ya'qub said in a televised sermon in 2009,
"If the Jews left Palestine to us, would we start loving them? Of course not! The Jews are infidels not because I say so but because Allah does... They aren't our enemies because they occupy Palestine; they would be our enemies even if they had not occupied anything." 
But – what can you do? – the Arab League armies were utterly defeated and beaten. And in the course of defeating them, the Israelis drove out the Irregular Palestinian forces, who were not ‘totally innocent ... peasants’ (a ludicrous phrase). Their villages and towns served as the bases from which their militiamen and armies attacked Jewish communities and convoys. And when the Jews were on the upper hand and defeat was possible the men ran and left their women and children behind as retold in the pro-Palestinian Zocrot propaganda YouTube interviews. The ‘innocent’ Palestinians were the aggressors – and dispossession was the price they paid for their aggression.

In the circumstances, had the Jews not driven them out, Israel would not have arisen and its (Jewish) population would have been slaughtered – or, at the least, the Jewish state would have been established with a considerable Fifth Column in its midst and rendered mortally unstable.

(Conversely, had the Arabs accepted the 1947 UN Partition Resolution, refrained from violence, and gone on with their lives as loyal Israeli citizens, nothing would have happened to them.)

Nevertheless, Israel emerged from the 1948 War with a 160,000-strong Arab minority (alongside 700,000 Jews) – a fact that tends to undermine the charge that there was a blanket policy of “ethnic cleansing”.

The Palestinian Plan for the Negation of Israel

“They lay crafty plans against Your People… they say: ‘come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more’.” 
– Tehilim 83:3-4 (Psalm 83:3-4).

“Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.”  Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784), quoted in Boswell's Life of Johnson

During the 2014 conflict in the Gaza Strip I monitored several means of  "Mass Media":
Specifically the major International TV channels (BBC, CNN, Sky News France 24, Al Jezerra- to name a few), the newspapers (The NY Times, The Guardian) and their "Talkback" sections and YouTube postings.

As matter of course I also monitored and posted on the social media on the Internet particularly Facebook and Tweeter.

While watching and reading the stories and their associated "Talkback" reply sections, I had attempted to understand the reasoning behind the portrayal by many of the readers in their replies of Israel as "the singular" enemy of peace and disruptor of international stability?
In reading their replies I wanted to inquire into the basis of the libelous claim of Israel as an "Occupier" of "Occupied Lands". I wanted to understand why it is, that Israel is consistently portrayed as a racist, colonialist (settler) and "Apartheid" regime with regards to the "Falestinians"? I also attempted to analyze the replies to these negative anti-Israel and many times highly anti-Jewish remarks. I wanted to find out who was posting them and if the accounts in Facebook or other social medias used to sign in to "Talkback" (Comments) sections were real or where they fronts for systematic anti-Israel propagandists.

Further to my research I decided to do a search for the source of the motivation for all the outpouring of utter hatred that was seen recently in the media and all over the streets of the major cities of the world. I found that the reasoning behind this and the growing threat of incessant hatred and rabid anti-Israel /Jewish, anti-Semitism in Europe and in the Middle East is a direct outcome of an intensive,very well funded, world wide media campaign by the "Falestinians" and their financial backers to discredit Israel as a legitimate country in the eyes of the world. To many readers I know that this comes as absolutely no surprise. Simcha Jacobovici stated in his Blog, "Countdown to Israel’s Destruction";
"In the international media, Israel is portrayed as the enemy of peace, the disruptor of international stability and a racist, colonialist regime that targets Arab children for a pastime."
The success of this "Falestinian" backed strategy to "vilify" Israel, is a direct outcome of the total lack of a real and organized response to this media war by successive Israeli governments. The Israeli Foreign Ministry has never made any concerted initiative in "Hasbarah” (Hebrew for “explanation”) to offset this campaign to delegitimatize Israel's right to exist.The results of this abject failure to combat the tidal wave of anti-Israel sentiments on the social media and in news broadcasts can be felt and seen in the increased acts of violence in Europe and the world. The recent demonstrations throughout the United States and Europe and acts of violence are not just against Israel but against Jews on the whole.

The lack of a real and organized Israeli "Hasbarah” campaign can be seen the rise in the animosity against Israel in the brazen activities of the BDS Boycott Divest Sanctions movement. We can also see it in the loss of the appreciation and backing for the cause of the historical and biblical aspirations of the Jewish people for a "Homeland". Backing for the State of Israel and it's legitimacy has steadily decreased in the past 40 odd years among Liberals and especially among non-religious and unaffiliated Jews in America. This absence of support for Israel has encouraged and emboldened brazen and despicable acts of hatred and violence among the Moslem residents throughout Europe and Neo-Nazi Elements of "White Supremacist" in the United States.

As Simcha Jacobovici stated in his Blog;
"Even during the worst days of South Africa’s Apartheid, no one called for the destruction of South Africa. What they were calling for was a regime change, not the annihilation of the state. With Israel, it’s different. In campuses around the world “progressive” students and faculty are openly calling for the elimination of the Jewish state."
Very few know the simple fact that the "Palestine Liberation Organization" was "Only" formed in 1964 by the Arabs of the Mandated Areas, which was three years before Israel would gain control over the Gaza Strip and liberate Judea and Samaria (aka "the West Bank") in the defensive war of June 1967.  

So the question that begs a response is what were the Arabs bent on liberating in 1964?
And from whom were they intent on liberating it from?  

No one dares to question just why the “Arabs of the Mandated Territories” did not demand to create their state from Egypt and Jordan while these areas were under their control from 1948 - 1967?  
Please note this is the same PLO that today controls the "Falestinian Authority" today. This same PLO has never renounced its appetite for all of what was once dubbed "Falestina." It was only after Israel's victory in the Six Day war of 1967 that "the West Bank" and "Gaza Strip" suddenly had any real relevance to their Arab inhabitants.

The strategy of the "Falestinians" to mark Israel as a "Pariah among nations", an unwanted "Apartheid racist, colonist entity" has achieved a remarkable success. They have inverted much of the world's perception of the Middle East: transforming tiny Israel from its natural role of "David" against the massive Arab population and lands, to one of "Goliath" against the "stateless," "oppressed," and "occupied" "Palestinians.

The purpose of this cynical plan being to have the nations of the world call for the forceful dissolution of the State of Israel by a cancellation or negation of the Partition by the nations of the world.

This "Negation of Israel Plan" otherwise known as "the 1974 plan"—known by all Arabs as the "plan of stages" for the destruction of Israel. This "plan" was the culmination of an outline delivered by Yasser Arafat in a speech before the General Assembly in November 1974 where Zionism was equated with racism.
  • "Our resolve to build a new world is fortified-a world free of colonialism, imperialism, neo-colonialism and racism in each of its instances, including Zionism."
  • 'The world is in need of tremendous efforts if its aspirations to peace, freedom, justice, equality and development are to be realized, if its struggle is to be victorious over colonialism, imperialism, neo-colonialism, and racism in all its forms, including Zionism."
  • "An old world order is crumbling before our eyes, as imperialism, colonialism, neo-colonialism and racism, the chief form of which is Zionism, ineluctably perish."  
  • "Zionism is an ideology that is imperialist, colonialist, racist ; it is profoundly reactionary and discriminatory ; it is united with anti-Semitism." 
Prior to his 1974 speech Arafat was advised by the great "freedom fighters" of the "Liberals of the Left": Võ Nguyên Giáp, a General in the Vietnam People's Army advised Arafat and his adjutant, Khalil Ibrahim al-Wazir - Abu Jihad:
“Stop talking about annihilating Israel and instead turn your terror war into a struggle for human rights. Then you will have the American people eating out of your hand.”

Mhamed Yazid, who had been minister of information in two Algerian wartime governments (1958-1962) advised Arafat:
“Wipe out the argument that Israel is a small state whose existence is threatened by the Arab states, or the reduction of the Palestinian problem to a question of refugees; instead, present the Palestinian struggle as a struggle for liberation like the others. Wipe out the impression ‎‎…that in the struggle between the Palestinians and the Zionists, the Zionist is the underdog. Now it is the Arab who is oppressed and victimized in his existence because he is not only facing the Zionists but also world imperialism.”
The success of this massive "PR" program to vilify, defame and delegitimization Israel has won the hearts of the young Moslem émigrés throughout Europe and encouraged the anti-Semites of the Neo Nazi parties. Only recently we witnessed the murder of Jews who were killed at a Jewish day school in Toulouse, France and a Jewish community center firebombed. Israeli officials warned Jewish men who wanted to visit synagogues in Denmark not to don their skullcaps until they were inside the building. It is increasingly common for Jewish tourists in Western Europe to avoid carrying anything that might distinguish them as such. A shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels in May, a month before the latest conflict began, killed four innocent people two of whom were an Israeli couple on vacation.

We also witnessed how Parisian Jews were trapped in a synagogue by pro-Palestinian rioters on the eve of Bastille Day, and had to be rescued by the police. Signs were posted in Rome urging a boycott of Jewish-owned businesses, anti-Israel protesters in a central London rampage through a Sainsbury's grocery store where the manager is forced to order the removal of kosher products not just Israeli products off the shelves.

In Israel we saw on our nightly news broadcasts the developments that occurred in Europe with pro-Gaza demonstrations in Dortmund, Frankfurt and on the Kurfürstendamm, that legendary avenue in Berlin. We saw the news coverage of mass protests in London, England, throughout the USA from Los Angeles to Boston and from Chicago to Atlanta and Miami. The chants of "Free Palestine" intermixed with chants of abject hate, not just against Israel but against the Jewish people with the views of contorted faces filled with hate screaming; "Hamas, Hamas; Jews to the gas!" "The ovens of Auschwitz call you!"
These scenes and acts of ugly brutality carried out by pro-"Falestinian" / Hamas marchers to verbally abuse and assault anyone who dared to stand quietly holding a pro-Israeli placard or an Israeli flag. Are non news items and are almost never covered.

The coverage of these marches mass demonstrations and events became viral as they were quickly uploaded and gleefully spread throughout the mass media on Facebook and in YouTube videos and shown on major news broadcasts. These videos once posted elicited even yet more venomous hate filled "Talkback" replies further exacerbating the horrendous hatred to vile levels unsurpassed by Goebbels and the Nazi propaganda machine.

There are those who are quick to point out that there are many differences between the rise of Nazism inspired anti-Semitism in Europe in the late 1930's and the Moslem inspired anti-Semitism, anti-Israel hatred of today. I ask how many of these apologists are aware of the spread of sophisticated YouTube channels with their slick well prepared videos on the internet that motivate, encourage, inspire and glorify this deadly hatred? The sick manifestations of the videos produced wholesale by the Neo-Nazi movement with their sick message of perverted hate blend in with the well financed videos of the "Falesinians" and their concerted "Pallywood" campaign of lies and distortions.

The apologists are quick to quote the example that during the rise of the Nazi Party to power in Germany the peoples of the world and specifically Europe were not only silent but complicit. That in today’s world when there is an outbreak of anti-Semitism and violence most news channels and world governments are "quick" to condemn it. Yet, they do not mention just how these governments or the world media should react to not only prevent these acts of violent hatred but eradicate the cancer itself.

When complaints are filed with the monitors of the social media of Facebook and YouTube to remove offensive videos, channels and pages, in the majority of the times they reply that these hate filled pages are protected by the principles of free speech. The rules of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and the  International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) clearly state:  "Any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law" is by definition hate speech. When this is pointed out to them they are loath to remove videos, channels and clearly hate filled pages. I was once informed that the reason they are hesitant and slow to remove anti-Jewish /Semitic /Israeli pages is that there have not been enough claims sent in. Yet on the other hand pro-Jewish Israeli sites are constantly being removed.

Since the re-establishment of the "Zionistic Jewish State / Homeland” a distinctive strain of Moslem anti-Semitism has arisen in the world, built on a foundation of a more leftist inspired and nourished form of anti-Semitism. It is not the atypical anti-Semitism rooted in longstanding Christian views that demonized the Jews which Goebbels and his propaganda machine enhanced during the Nazi era of the 1930s. Though the Nazi form of ancient anti-Jewish hatred is still evident throughout the entire Arab world in political cartoons, editorials, television shows and newspaper articles. It is also alive and well and used in the Hamas charter which contains references to a nefarious forgery created by Czarist Russian police officers in 1903 and later used as Nazi propaganda "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion." The Hamas charter accuses Jews of relying on secret societies to foment global economic and political disasters. It calls on adherents to prepare for "the next round with the Jews, the merchants of war."

Only recently a Hamas spokesman recently stood by his statement that Jews used the blood of non-Jewish children for their matzos.

As I mentioned earlier, today's campaign of utter hatred is based on the relatively new narrative of the post Nachba "Falestinians" that Arafat outlined in his infamous address to the UN General Assembly in November of 1974.

In his address Arafat established the strategy of what I call the "Negation of Israel Plan" based on three themes.

  • The first being that the Jews /Zionists are not native to the land that we are;"colonists and settlers"
  • The second theme is the the "European immigrant Jews"  are not real Jews but Khazarim that we are not native to the soil that we are usurpers and that the "Falestinians" are the true natives.
  • The Third theme is "The Great Lie",  the negation and vilification campaign as defined by Muhammad Yazid; to show that, " is the Arab who is oppressed and victimized"

Here are two excerpts from Yasser Arafat's UN General Assembly address in November of 1974 pay heed to the context:

"The roots of the Palestinian question reach back into the closing years of the 19th century, in other words, to that period which we call the era of colonialism and settlement,’ as we know it today. This is precisely the period during which Zionism as a scheme was born ; its aim was the conquest of Palestine by European immigrants, just as settlers colonized, and indeed raided, most of Africa. This is the period during which, pouring forth out of the west, colonialism spread into the furthest reaches of Africa, Asia, and Latin America, building colonies, everywhere cruelly exploiting, oppressing,’ plundering the peoples of those three continents. This period persists into the present. Marked evidence of its totally reprehensible presence can be readily perceived in the racism practiced both in South Africa and in Palestine"

"Just as colonialism and its demagogues dignified their conquests, their plunder and limitless attacks upon the natives of Africa with appeals to a “civilizing and modernizing” mission, so too did waves of Zionist immigrants disguise their purposes as they conquered Palestine. Just as colonialism as a system and colonialists as its instrument used religion, color, race and language to justify the African’s exploitation and his cruel subjugation by terror and discrimination, so too were these methods employed as Palestine was usurped and its people hounded from their national homeland.
The Third theme of "The Great Lie", was utilized to the max by the pro-Falestinian's recently in "Operation Protective Shield". The Israel military was forced to fight with two hands tied behind its back because of the repercussions of the Goldstone report, from the previous round with the Hamas terrorist regime in the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli military action which occurred recently in Gaza was an action of self-defense!

Yet the world needed to be constantly reminded that the actions by Israel took place only AFTER
three young Israeli Yeshiva students in their teens were abducted and murdered in cold-blood ; Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Shayer and Naftali Frenkel by Hamas activists, Marwan Qawasmeh and Omar Abu Aysha.

That the land action / incursion took place only after 13 Hamas terrorists attempted to penetrate into Israel through a tunnel from Gaza Strip near the Jewish /Israeli community of Kerem Shalom. And only after two terrorists cells of 10 members each. Infiltrated into Israeli territory Monday 21 July 2014 between two kibbutzim, Erez and Nir Am.  And only after more than 500 rockets were fired at Israeli communities.

World leaders and the major news channels seemed to be consumed only with how to limit Israel's legitimate “proportional” response to Hamas rocket and mortar fire. There was hardly a mention of the threat of terrorism through tunnels into Israel civilian residential centers.

Due to the overwhelming success of the "Negation of Israel Plan" the mass media rushed oh so over-eagerly and readily went into Gaza to defame Israel. The large networks and news companies AP, UPI and Reuters hired hundreds of local “Falestinian photojournalists” to fill their press releases and bylines with photos and videos. The screams of the pro-"Falestinians" at the "disproportionate" response blithely ignoring the facts that for 14 years Israelis in the southern part of Israel were living under near daily mortar and rocket attacks. The pro"Falestinians" apologists screaming that the rockets used by Hamas were "ineffectual" when Israel responded to the sources of the attacks. Not once did the world media mention the reasons for their failure in causing death and injury to the Israeli civilian population.

As author and former AP correspondent Matti Friedman stated in his essay, "An Insider’s Guide to ‎the Most Important Story on Earth" 
"An ‎observer might think Hamas’ ‎decision in recent years to construct a military infrastructure beneath Gaza’s civilian ‎infrastructure would be ‎deemed newsworthy, if only because of what it meant about the way the next conflict ‎would be fought and the cost to innocent people.But that is not the case.
The Hamas emplacements were not ‎important in themselves, and were therefore ignored. What was important was the Israeli decision to attack them."‎
Non Arabic speaking “big name” foreign correspondents and journalists from the large news networks never questioned the validity of the images and sites shown them. They never reveal that the stories they tell have been fed to them or that they were lied to and controlled by Hamas operatives on site. The tragic scenes and images of the innocent victims who were so cynically used by the Hamas as human shields, dominated practically every news outlet. Their deaths were reported in the most dramatic way by the "local" “Falestinian photojournalists” to demonize Israel. It was only afterwards when the immense damage had already been done and the news was to old to be shown again did they rarely acknowledge the truth and their complicity in the "Big Lie" of "Pallywood". The veracity of the truth behind these stories, photos and videos are never verified.
"Any ‎veteran of the press ‎corps here knows the intimidation is real, and I saw it in action ‎myself as an editor on the ‎AP news desk. ‎
‎During ‎the 2008-2009 Gaza fighting I personally erased a key detail—that ‎Hamas fighters were ‎dressed as civilians and being counted as civilians in the ‎death toll—because of a threat to our reporter in Gaza.‎
‎‎(The policy was then, and remains, not to inform readers that the story is ‎censored unless the censorship is ‎Israeli. Earlier this month, ‎the AP’s ‎Jerusalem news editor reported and submitted a story on Hamas ‎intimidation; ‎the story was shunted ‎into deep freeze by his superiors and has ‎not been published.)"‎ former AP correspondent Matti Friedman 
This cynical manipulation of the Press and the social media, was disclosed in a report by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute). In the report MEMRI, reveals that Hamas’s Interior Ministry actually issued guidelines to "Falestinians" in Gaza and in the "Occupied Territories" as well as pro-"Falestinian" activist social media users abroad on how they should report events. The Hamas Media campaign is called “Be Aware – Social Media Activist Awareness Campaign” and an instructional video was posted on its official website and social media accounts.
On their web page and in the guidelines they advised their followers to depict all casualties as “innocent civilians,” and not to show evidence of rockets fired from population centers. According to the Hamas  directives:
“(They) ...are aimed at ensuring preservation of the line of Hamas and other Palestinian organizations, preventing the leaking of information that would be of military value to Israel, bolstering Hamas’s propaganda efforts outside the Gaza Strip in both the Arab world and the West, and preventing damage to Hamas’s image.” 
 “Anyone killed or martyred is to be called a civilian from Gaza or Palestine, before we talk about his status in jihad or his military rank. Don’t forget to always add ‘innocent civilian’ or ‘innocent citizen’ in your description of those killed in Israeli attacks on Gaza.”
Israel should always be shown as attacking, and “we in Palestine are fulfilling [the role of] the defense.”
“Avoid publishing pictures of rockets fired into Israel from [Gaza] city centers. This [would] provide a pretext for attacking residential areas in the Gaza Strip. Do not publish or share photos or video clips showing rocket-launching sites or the movement of resistance [forces] in Gaza.”
There were also guidelines on how to speak with the Non-Arab and Non-Arabic speaking pro-"Falestinian" activists on social media as opposed to Arabs:
“When speaking to the West, you must use political, rational, and persuasive discourse, and avoid emotional discourse aimed at begging for sympathy.”
“Avoid entering into a political argument with a Westerner aimed at convincing him that the Holocaust is a lie and deceit; instead, equate it with Israel’s crimes against Falestinian civilians.”
When speaking to an Arab emphasize “the number of martyrs,” but with “a Western friend, start with the number of wounded and dead.” 
An example of this media bias was that the world press consistently failed to mention that Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City had become a de facto headquarters for the Hamas leadership and therefore could be considered under international law as a legitimate target. William Booth of the Washington Post and UNICEF official Pernille Ironside had both witnessed that the grounds of
Al-Shifra meant to be a shelter and a center for mercy and healing was cynically being used by Hamas as a large human shield to ward off attacks in violation of all International Laws and the Geneva Convention.

Meanwhile their stories and bylines on Gaza have backed the United Nations in its' myopic view of the world as it only selectively chastised Israel.

My Proposal To Fight Back

So now that we know the game plan of the "Falestinians", as I termed it the "Negation of Israel Plan," what can be done?

Well the first thing that is required, is for the Israeli Government to organize a counter offensive to counter the lies and misinformation of the pro-"Falestinians". The Israeli Foreign Ministry needs to establish and fund a "Counter Hasbarah" agency or department.
Secondly Israel needs to take the battle to the pro-"Falestinians" in a Hasbarah offensive campaign and put them into the defensive mode. The offensive has to be on multiple fronts to cover all the media channels; public and social.
Representatives who are experienced and who have been fighting online for years need to be hired to teach from their knowledge as veterans of the Hasbarah War. They can be used to train the younger generation.
It is imperative that speakers and writers in native languages must be utilized to spread a united front of clear precise factual messages based solely on the truth. There is no compromising on historical and contemporary factual truth. All facts must be checked and double checked for validity.
Go Pro type cameras need to be issued to all Israeli forward units so that actual footage of "Falestinian" human rights violations can be documented as they happen. Cameras and videos showing the illegality of "Falestinian" actions need to be documented and posted.
Massive protests and demonstrations need to be organized to show the truth of the Jewish displacement from Arab lands and calls for dispensation demanded of the UN under UNR 194.

One of the most important items needs to be the resolution of the status of the "West Bank". The truth of the All-Palestine Government in Gaza and the Jordanian Annexation of the West Bank needs to be investigated again.
Just recently it was rightly announced that the area of the communities of Gush Etzion, which were built on land purchase before the 1948 Arab-Israeli War were Jewish communities that had existed but were destroyed and the residents massacred or expelled. It seems reasonable to refer to the land of these communities as liberated as it was freed from the illegal occupation of Jordan and was returned to possession of its owners, the Jewish People.

I furthermore propose that:
Any Journalists who cover the news from Gaza will be required to enter and exit only through Egypt.
Any Journalist or news channel that publishes an unsubstantiated story based on "local" photojournalists will no longer be able to enter nor broadcast from or through Israel -persona non grata - for a period of time to be determined by the Foreign Ministry. The stories of the "Occupation" need to be disproven and legal steps taken to prove it.
There needs to be systematic educated and scientific response to disprove the allegation that the Jewish people are ALL descendants of the "Khazars".
A special emphasis should be placed on the truth that the majority of Israelis are derived from the more than 900,000 Jews of Arab lands that were summarily kicked out of Arab lands. The fact that these Jews loss not just livelihoods, lands / property and wealth, they were forcibly evicted and made into "refugees" without UNWRA assistance is blatantly ignored.
That in deference to the Jews of Europe who were murdered due to world apathy, they had a place to turn to go to with Israel’s creation.  and they were resettled in Mabarrot, (Transit Camps) that later became “Development Towns” in the peripheral regions of the new state with few resources and places of industry for jobs. 
Israel's reception of over a million Jewish refugees from the Arab countries and Europe is a major achievement in light of the countries lack of monetary wealth, natural resources and the continual Arab animosity through terrorist attacks in it's early years.

In comparison, the 22!! Arab countries - with their far greater capacity for absorption and depth of financial wealth - made no effort whatsoever of integrating the roughly 720.000 Palestinian Arab refugees. To the contrary, they have been left to languish for nearly 70 years in refugee camps. They serve as pawns in the ongoing fight against Israel. Yet no one dares to mention the fact that Jordan- the other 72% of the League Of Nations Mandated Area of Palestine was given by the British ILLEGALLY as a payoff to the Hashemite Bedouin Clan)

The falsehood of associating Israel with "Apartheid" needs to be more aggressively countered and a counter-offensive showing just how much more so the term applies to the "Falestinians" and the Arabs cries out to be widely published. 
The fact that the use of the term against Israel came actually from Israel’s construction of the Security fence / wall which was necessitated only after repeated waves of suicide bombing attacks that murdered more than 2,000 innocent Israeli citizens. No one ever dares to mention that many Arab-Israeli villages are “Jew Free’ because THEY do not allow Jews to live among them? On the other-hand many of the larger cities in Israel have Arab-Israeli residents.
Arab-Israelis are represented in the Israeli Parliament, the Knesset, by their political representatives elected in free democratic elections.
That Arab-Israeli can speak their minds freely and openly, quite often. Some Arabs citizens criticize the state, yell, and openly curse the "Zionists" in public. Arab-Israeli vote freely in the general elections, teach, study and rally at our universities.
Arab-Israelis serve as lawyers who represent Jewish and other Arab-Israeli clients in courts. Arab-Israelis serve as judges on the Supreme Court. Arab-Israeli doctors and nurses provide medical services to Arabs and Jews alike in our hospitals.
Arab-Israelis serve in the IDF and they have reached high command positions in the military. Some Arab-Israelis serve as managers in Israeli companies, overseeing all the workers including Jewish citizens. In short, they are involved in everyday life to the same degree as their Jewish counterparts.  
Do these facts follow the definition of “Apartheid”?
The Israeli Government should establish by law a legal requirement that Members of Peace Now and B'stelem as part of their legal status to be recognized as a NGO be required to buy apartments and build homes in Arab Villages and in the Palestinian Arab Lands and to live in them to prove that "Peace and coexistence" as they claim exists.

What has become quite evident from all this is that Pro- Zionistic Jewish lives and that of Jews in Israel are no longer of importance. The refuge of the Jewish “Homeland” is in dire danger of extermination with the help of those who turned their back once before when Jews were singled out for genocide. A stand to stop this Tsunami of hate needs to be taken NOW immediately and action taken to make it so in the Knesset.
