The Legends of Lies.

by Steven Shamrak (part1)

Most people of this planet do not care or even know about Israel and Jews. Many of them receive glimpses of information about the Arab-Israel conflict from the accidental reports they hear on radio, TV or newspaper headlines. Unfortunately, under bombardment from the modern media, some of them have adopted the main stream ‘understanding’ of the issue, but still they do not care about the factual truth behind reports. Even many members of the Jewish tribe, who are still suffering from the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) inflicted on Jewish people during two millennia of living in exile and persecution by Christians and Muslims, have become believers of these opinions, continuously propagated by the world press and Western governments who are oblivious to danger of Islamic expansion. Strangely, the fake opinions about the Arab-Israel conflict have not been refuted by the string of Israel’s governments or the Jewish leadership of the Diaspora.

The term “legend” would be more appropriate than “opinion” in relation to the world attitude toward the Arab-Israel conflict! Quite often, legends are based on deliberate lies and created through distortion of the details of historical facts which with time people have forgotten and/or do not care about. Most often legends are deliberately created to support a political agenda. In the case of the Arab-Israel conflict it is the destruction of Israel. Enemies of Jews, not just Arabs, through distortion of public memory of factual historic reality, have managed to forge a fake nation and generate doubt about Israel’s legitimacy.

As the evil Nazi, but at the same time talented propagandist, Joseph Goebbels said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” That is what the enemies of the Jews and of the Jewish state have been doing quite consistently and successfully for many decades. They have done it so skilfully that even some Jewish Zionists started using some of their terminology or began to resign to the artificially created illegal status quo – ugly and unfair to Jews reality!

There are three major lies about the Arab-Israel conflict. Throughout the years they have gone through many metamorphoses and became first legends and later were transformed into a commonly known ‘truth’:

Israel was created due to European guilt because of Holocaust:

The modern Zionist movement emerged at the end of the 19th century with the goal of creating Eretz-Israel, the Land of Israel – a Jewish state on the Jewish ancestral land. In July 1922 the League of Nations entrusted Great Britain with the Palestine Mandate, recognizing “the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine.”

The Palestine Mandate was created exclusively for the benefit of the Jewish People, just the same as other mandates were intended for the creation of Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries. (part2 below)

Just 4% of Israelis think Obama is pro-Israel!

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

Netanyahu has to remember the second rule of political survival: “One must be re-elected!” Israeli voters have chosen change in the political direction of the country and elected a Jewish national block, lead by Likud, to implement it.

Dozens of Arabs set fire to wooden structures on Friday morning in the Nofei Yarden outpost, in the Binyamin area north of Jerusalem. Two young women who were there at the time managed to escape, but the outpost was completely destroyed.

Words are not Enough - It Is Action Time. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said: “I was in Berlin last week and we saw the price that we paid when we were without strength and without ability. And here we are, back in our country, our homeland, and it is our duty to deepen our hold upon it and to maintain our independence and defensive ability.” (Just good defence is not sufficient. It must be complimented by vision and the Jewish national unification plan!)

Where the Money Come from? To mark the Ramadan holiday, the Palestinian Authority will distribute a supplement of one million shekels, or $250,000, to PA members or Arab Israelis being held in Israeli prisons. Imprisoned terrorists already receive a monthly allocation of from 1000 to 4000 shekels a month, $250 to $1000, from the PA. (International bigots, by injecting billions, are subsidising terror infrastructure!)

Genuine Refugees vs Fake Palestinian Ones. Somalis forced to flee war and drought are living in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions. About 8,000 Somali refugees flock into the Dadaab camp in northern Kenya every month. The camp, which has facilities for about 90,000 - has 280,000 refugees, who have no access to basic necessities including clean water. About 1.4 million people have been displaced in Somalia and 500,000 more have fled to countries in the region. (And yet the world is preoccupied mostly with the fake refugees who are used as leverage to facilitate the destruction of the Jewish state!)

Discrimination of Jews in IDF. The IDF has reportedly rejected the petition of a Jewish inductee to the army who requested serving in the IDF trackers (gashash) course saying it is for Bedouin only. The soldier, who lives in Yesha, was placed in another unit and told that if he did not agree to the move he would be placed in military prison.

Denial of the Holocaust is Criminal Act. Hamas slammed the United Nations for plans to teach children in the Gaza Strip about the Holocaust and asked to take out all references to the Shoah. The Islamic rulers of Gaza called the genocide of Jews by the Nazis ''a lie invented by the Zionists.'' (The UN must stop subsidizing terrorists and Israel must remove them from Jewish land!)

Quote of the Week: “Stop crying and acting like cowards. In the Middle East, there is no pity for the weak and those who do not defend themselves do not get a second chance.'' – Israel Defense minister Ehud Barak (Leader of Labor party) - It was stupid of him to make a comment like this to students at a secondary school. Why doesn’t he follow his own advice but instead persists with dismantling Jewish settlements and not freeing Jewish land from enemy occupation?

Reward for Traitor. Since leaving office only five months ago, former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has earned NIS 2.5 million via a consulting firm he set up. Most of the profits are from abroad. Last week, the attorney general indicted Olmert in three separate criminal affairs. (They are paid later for what they have or have not done! It would be interesting to see what ‘consulting’ he provides and who is paying for his service? Would they pay him if he cleared Gaza of enemies and reunited it with Israel?)

Political Gutlessness and Disloyalty of Israeli Arabs. Education minister Gideon Saar has decided that Arab school children do not have to sing the Hatikva, the national anthem. The idea provoked anger in the Arab sector.

Self-hating Media Mum after Druze Israeli Violence. MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) attacked the Israeli media Wednesday for downplaying a violent attack Tuesday by Druze hooligans against the police station in Usfiyeh, on mount Carmel: “Yesterday, fire bombs were thrown at the police station in Usfiyeh and the station was closed down for renovation,” he said. “Imagine that settlers or hareidis would burn down a police station. What would happen in the media?”

Was It in the News? Not long ago: 1) Nearly 120,000 people from various districts in Yemen’s northern province of Saada fled their homes to safer areas on the border with Saudi Arabia as renewed clashes between the army and Houthi rebels escalated. 2) Police in northern Nigeria arrested 3,950 members of the strictly Islamic community Darul Islam, claiming the group were feared to become violent. (Only news about ‘poor Palestinians’ is!)

The Legends of Lies.

1.      Palestinians are a nation.

Since Jews were dispersed from Judea and Samaria by the Romans 2000 years ago, there were no kingdom or an independent country established in the land of Israel. As the Jews came back and drained the swamps, made the deserts bloom and developed industries - Arabs, Muslims from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cherkesians, Turkmenians and Egyptians followed. They came for jobs, for prosperity and were encouraged to migrate by the region’s controlling powers, Ottoman and British, in order to prevent the creation of the Jewish state. For a political reason, they began identifying themselves as Palestinian people only in 1964, on the initiative of Egyptian-born Yasser Arafat.

2.      Israel is the occupier of Palestinian land.

The Palestinian Mandate (Article 5) clearly stipulated that "no Palestine territory (designated for the Jewish state) shall be ceded or leased to, or in any way placed under the control of, the Government of any foreign Power."

This means that the United Kingdom had illegally ceded the Trans-Jordan to the refugees from the Saudi Arabian Peninsula. And the United Nation’s partition plan of the remaining parts of Palestine in 1947 was also illegal. In addition, in spite of the fact that the partition plan was devised to sabotage the creation of the Jewish homeland (the creation of two states on six ugly triangles – a completely unworkable political map). Te Arabs rejected it! Therefore, they lost any legal standing on the land. They knew it and that is one reason why seven Muslim states declared the war on Israel in 1948!

But no one is interested in facts nowadays or ever, especially where Jews are concerned. After 60 years of anti-Israel propaganda, facts are forgotten and distorted, legality is brushed a side and a new reality is forged, the same old ugliness only with a new ‘politically correct’ phoney face. Where is the Jewish leadership with the courage to dispel those ugly legends?
