I am especally aghast by the total lack of response and ignorance displayed Jewish college students, educators and community leaders to the hatred swallowing the Diaspora.
I am truly amazed at what flaw in Jewish leadership has allowed this level of anti-Zionism and anti-Israel feelings to become predominate?
The denial of ones Jewishness and the utter and sick hatred that is within the anti-Zionistic movement is asounding to say the least.
This Jewish self hatred for the sake of assimilation and the abject hatred of other Jews because of piety - is our "Hamartia" or fatal flaw- has been our downfall throughout history. And if not tended to immediately may cost us another Holocaust.
I for one see a massive failure in education and the massive effect of the conquest of "Historical revisionism" or the unquestioned acceptance of the Palestinian "narrative" over reality and facts.
As an educator I have known for years that all histories are "tainted" by the victors, yet the amount of malice shown to the Jews and "our" narrative in these past 50 years is hideous bordering on the grotesque.
The massive manipulation of the world press by the "Negators of Zionism and Israel" to vilify Israel has occaisionaly left me aghast by their sheer contortion of historical facts to the "Palestinian Narrative". One of the chief sources of knowledge on the world wide web Wikkipedia is totally corrupted with this cancer.
I am truly amazed at the amount of naive innocents who have become so bamboozled by those who have been passing off outright lies and mis-information in the campaign for Historic revisionism as ordained by the post 1967 KGB inspired discreditament of Israel program.
The amount of ignorance flagrantly shown by the world, specificaly in the UN, boogles the mind in light of actual documents and archaeological evidence which abounds regarding Israel is beyond comprehension.
How many of todays educators dare to teach their students the truth?
How many Journalists have been educated in the truth so when confronted with revisionism they know that something is "amiss"?
When I have written my blog entries I have tried to "see both sides" because like a true journalist one must be "unbiased" to realy the truth otherwise you are NOT a historian nor journalist- You are a propagandist.
Here is a case in point I am talking about:
Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) recently pointed out correctly that the international community has continued holding Israel responsible for Gaza despite disengaging, and the REVISED United Nations Goldstone Report proved it nine years ago.
“The world must do some soul searching, because we left Gaza, yet they still don’t recognize our border,” she said. “We won’t pay twice by withdrawing and remaining the patron for Gaza that has a hostile terror regime. The world must understand that forcing the disengagement on us was a big mistake that led to Hamas taking power of Gaza. They created the Gaza problem, so it is up to them to solve it.”
“The world is hypocritical, because they respond more forcefully than us to security threats,” she said. “Innocents die at the hands of the US and Europe, too. It’s unrealistic to expect zero deaths in war. We did prepare our public diplomacy. Those who wanted to understand understood.”
What has nary been mentioned in ALL the news reports, and is unique immportance, in the light of the Arabs claim for the "Right of Return" is that the world lied to the Israeli leadership to convince it to forcibly evacuate our citizens from the "Gaza Strip".
NO ONE -not one news source has mentioned in all the news regarding the area of Gaza that according to a LEGALLY BINDING - Treaty which has NEVER been revoked it is also an area where Jews could live.
I am referring to the Treaty of Serves of 1922 (San Remo) where the League of Nations adopted IN FULL the obligation of the Balfor Declaration for a Jewish Homeland in the entire "Mandated Area".
UNR181 continued the LEGALITY of Jewish control over the disputed area not only because the "Arabs of the Mandated Areas" aka the Falestinians rejected the UN resolution.
Another FACT overlooked is that the Arabs and the Arab League where in DIRECT violation of Article 2 of the UN Charter!!!
Specifically clauses 3 and 4 which state:
3. All Members shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security, and justice, are not endangered.
4. All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.
So for all those "Haters of Israel and Zionism" who make claims of Israel "breaking the law" they and the editors of ALL the news media should consult, as I did the historical documated facts.
