"Israelis stole Palestinian land in 1967 and now refuse to give it back."

  • 1948-1967 Egypt governed the Gaza strip; Jordan governed the West Bank and Jerusalem. Instead of allowing a Palestinian state, the lands were used to launch terror attacks against Israel.
  • May 15, 1967, Egypt ordered U.N peacekeepers out of the Sinai peninsula and massed the Egyptian army on Israel’s southern border.
  • May 18, 1967, Syria amassed troops on Israel’s northern border, claiming they are ready "to explode Zionism." The next week, Jordan sent its army to join the others.
  • May 22, Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran in the Red Sea to Israeli shipping. Israel's access to the Indian Ocean was cut-off, a clear act of war against Israel.
  • June 4, 1967, Iraq joined the alliance and declared it would wipe Israel off of the map. Lebanon and other Arab states sent troops to "annihilate the Zionist existence."
  • Faced with its destruction, on June 5, 1967 Israel launched a pre-emptive strike on the armies surrounding it. The U.S. declared neutrality in the conflict and cut off arms supplies to Israel.
  • Five days later, Israeli army advanced deep into enemy territory. Israel had taken the Sinai peninsula, Gaza strip, West Bank, and the Golan Heights.
  • Israel eventually returned the Sinai to Egypt in exchange for a permanent peace.
  • Israel recently offered the Palestinians over 95 percent of the West Bank and ALL of Gaza in exchange for a permanent peace.

The representation of a land-grabbing Israel, intent on stealing Palestinian land in 1967, is tragically ignorant.


"Israeli "occupation" has caused the Arab hatred, violence and terrorism."

  • In 1947, the U.N. drew borders for a Palestinian and a Jewish state, dictated largely by the areas populated by these groups.
  • Jews agreed to live in peace with a Palestinian state. Arabs refused to allow a non-Muslim state to exist in their midst, and declared war to destroy Israel.
  • 1948-1967, the West Bank and Gaza were under Arab rule. Rather than grant Palestinians statehood, the Arabs spent these years launching thousands of terrorist offensives to destroy the State of Israel. These include:
  • In 1952 alone, Israel absorbed approximately 3,000 cross-border terrorist attacks on its civilians.
  • June 8, 1953 the U.N. mediated an agreement for Jordan to cease terrorist attacks into Israel. The next day, terrorists threw grenades and sprayed machine gun fire on Israeli civilians at a farming village near Lod.
  • June 11, 1953, terrorists murdered a civilian couple in their home in Kfar Hess.
  • March 17, 1954, terrorists ambushed an Israeli bus and walked the aisle shooting each passenger and spitting on the bodies.
  • March 24, 1955, terrorists threw grenades and opened fire on a wedding in the village of Patish.
  • April 11, 1956, terrorists opened fire on children at a synagogue in the village of Shafir.
  • November 7, 1965, a Fatah terrorist cell blew up a civilian house south of Beit Shemesh.
Before the so-called "occupation," Arabs refused to live in peace with Israel, and allowed thousands of terrorists’ attacks against israelis.


"The current Palestinian leaders fight terrorism and lead their people toward peace."

  • January 2002, during a cease fire, the Karine A, a ship carrying 50 tons of Iranian-made long-range missiles, mortars, mines and explosives, was seized in the Red Sea, heading to the Gaza strip.
  • The ship was owned by the Palestinian Authority.
  • The captain was a Palestinian naval police officer.
  • The arms were purchased by the Palestinian Authority.
    v April 2002, in the office of the Palestinian chief financial officer, soldiers found funding requests for terrorists involved in murders of Israeli and Arab civilians.
  • Handwritten notations from Yasir Arafat approved the allotment of funds.
  • Arab press declared that these incidents – as well as the identities of the September 11 terrorists – were Israeli fabrications intended to stir resentment of Arabs.
  • At a typical Palestinian rally, young boys were pictured learning to use automatic weapons to kill Israelis. New York Times, page A1, February 26, 2002.
  • "Peace initiatives, the so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem, are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement." The Charter of the Hamas, Article 13.
  • Palestinian children are taught from maps that show Israel does not exist and from books that preach martyrdom.
Until the Arabs love their children as much as they hate the Jews, we will not have peace.


"Americans are targets of Islamic terrorism due to American support of Israel."

  • Despite this sentiment in frequent letters published by the Chicago Tribune, the bigotry of Islamic fundamentalists does not have just a single root.
  • This year, Muslim fundamentalists in India burned a train of Hindu worshippers because of their beliefs.
  • This year, Muslim fundamentalists bombed Pakistani churches to kill Christians in the name of Allah.
  • Today, Muslim fundamentalists hold American missionaries hostage in the Philippines.
  • Before September 11, Bin Laden has never mentioned the Palestinian cause in his preachings.
  • Long before September 11, Al Qaeda killed hundreds of American soldiers simply to protest the presence of Americans on Saudi soil.
  • The Iranian hostage crisis of 1978-1980 had nothing to do with Israel.
  • The Charter of Hamas calls for military jihad until all three major religions "live under the shadow of Islam."
  • "Eleventh-graders at the elite Islamic Saudi Academy in Northern Virginia... file into their Islamic studies class, where the textbooks tell them the Day of Judgment can’t come until Jesus Christ returns to Earth, breaks the cross and converts everyone to Islam, and until Muslims start attacking Jews." Washington Post, February 25, 2002.
  • Israel and America are the targets of Islamic terrorism, groups like Taliban, Hamas, Fatah and Al Qaeda, for similar reasons: the perceived threat of democracy and secular rule to Islamic theocracy.
Supporting Israel did not create Islamic terrorism.Abandoning Israel will not make them go away.


Isn't Israel considered militarily superior in comparison to its Arab neighbors?

Israel’s qualitative military edge has declined as Arab and Muslim states acquire increasingly sophisticated conventional and unconventional arms. In fact, despite its pledges to the contrary, the United States is allowing Israel’s qualitative edge to dissipate. In some cases, US arms transfers to the Arabs are the reason for this erosion.

Isn't Israel's presence in the West Bank and Gaza strip considered to be illegal occupation?

Jews have lived in the West Bank and Gaza strip since ancient times. The only time Jews have been prohibited from living in the territories in recent decades was during Jordan’s rule from 1948 to 1967. This prohibition was anti-Semitic and contrary to the Mandate for Palestine adopted by the League of Nations, which provided for the establishment of a Jewish state, and specifically encouraged “close settlement by Jews on the land.”

Why should we believe Israel's media and not the Palestinians'?

In a free democracy, which Israel is, the press will expose lies. In a police state people will be killed for telling the truth. When journalists are allowed to pierce the veil of secrecy, the price of access to dictators and terrorists is often steep. Reporters are sometimes intimidated or blackmailed. This is not just the case for Western journalists. During the “al-Aksa intifada” Israeli journalists were warned against going to the Palestinian Authority (PA) and some received telephone threats after publishing articles critical of the Palestinian leadership. In Arab countries, journalists are usually escorted to see what the dictator wants them to see or they are followed. Citizens are warned by security agencies, sometimes directly, sometimes more subtly, that they should be careful what they say to visitors. If a news organization strays from the pro-Palestinian line, it comes under immediate attack. -

Wouldn’t it be beneficial to have the U.N. present in Israel to help mediate the conflict?

History has proven that the United Nations does not have Israel’s best interest at heart. In 1975, for example, the Assembly approved Resolution 3379, which slandered Zionism by branding it a form of racism. In 1991 the General Assembly voted 111-25 to repeal Resolution 3379. No Arab country voted for repeal. In 1976 the committee recommended “full implementation of the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people, including their return to the Israeli part of Palestine.” It also recommended that November 29 – the day the UN voted to partition Palestine in 1947 – be declared an ”International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.” Israel is the object of more investigative committees, special representatives and reporters than any other state in the UN system.

Which Came First - Terrorism or "Occupation"?

Palestinian and Arab spokesmen commonly claim that the recent Palestinian terrorism is the result of the Israeli 'occupation' of the West Bank and Gaza, adding that the violence will cease only when the 'occupation' is ended. Despite this claim, it should be recalled that the many Palestinian and Arab rejectionist factions (such as the Hamas and the Hizbullah) repeatedly declare that even if Israel would fully withdraw from the territories they will continue their attacks, since they refute Israel's basic right to exist. More importantly, however, the basic premise of the Palestinian claim - that the 'occupation' causes terrorism - is historically flawed. Arab and Palestinian terrorism against Israel existed prior to the beginning of Israeli control over the West Bank and Gaza as a result of the Six Day War of June 1967, and even prior to the establishment of the State of Israel in May 1948. For example, Arab terrorism was rampant during wave of anti-Jewish riots in 1920-21 (which was characterized by the brutal murder in Jaffa of the prominent Jewish author Y. Brenner), during the 'Disturbances' of 1929 (which included the massacre of the Jewish community in Hebron), during the Arab Revolt of 1936-39, and in many other recorded incidents of wholesale anti-Jewish Arab violence throughout the pre-state period. The Palestinian terrorism campaign was stepped-up on the eve of the UN Partition Resolution of November 1947, and led to the joint Arab invasion of 1948-49 which delineated the boundaries of the newly established State of Israel.

Why does Europe hold such a negative image of Israel?

One reason may simply be because the Palestinians have done a much better job with their public relations campaign then has Israel. Other explanations include: because Europe fears its immense Muslim population, because of its own anti-Semitism, because its dependent on Arab oil, and because America supports Israel.

What is the connection between the 'terror intifada' and the rise in anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic incidents in the region and throughout the world?
The vehement campaign of Palestinian incitement is generating violence, destroying regional peace efforts and giving rise to antisemitism throughout the world.
The Palestinian Authority's institutionalized campaign of incitement constitutes the driving force of the Terror Intifada, and the main instrument for mobilizing public participation in the violence and to recruit new terrorists and suicide bombers. The PA television stations and official daily newspapers present distorted accounts of Palestinian casualties, praise the 'martyred' Palestinian suicide terrorists, spread unfounded rumors, stir up anti-Jewish fervor, and urge the public to take to the street for well-orchestrated and violent confrontations with Israelis. PA-financed clergy use the pulpit to preach hate of Jews and praise of Jihad (holy war). Senior Palestinian leaders and spokesmen fabricate and repeat inflammatory lies about non-existent Israeli 'atrocities', 'massacres', or 'religious desecrations'. Palestinian education television airs programs glorifying the murder of Jews, praising child Jihad martyrdom, teaching nursery rhymes of hate and revenge and calling on children to "drop your toys and take up arms".

Extensive media coverage is given to rallies and protests in which mock-up Jewish school buses or villages are destroyed, leaders urge the crowd to intensify the confrontation and violence, and religious authorities extol the virtues of self-immolation and suicide bombings in the name of Allah. In the face of the overwhelming campaign of incitement, it is no wonder that the Palestinian public has been swept up in an ultimately self-destructive vortex of violence which has been chosen as the preferable course of action by the irresponsible Palestinian leadership.

The vehement Palestinian anti-Israeli rhetoric has also had a crippling impact on the support for Arab-Israeli peace and reconciliation efforts throughout the region. The intense coverage of the Palestinian perspective of the events, the incitement of Palestinian spokesmen and the political pressure of radical Arab regimes has given rise to an anti-Israeli ground-swell among the Arab public in general, influencing many pro-peace Arab states to downgrade their ties with Israel. At a time when all parties in the Middle East should be working to contain the conflict and to restore calm to the region, it is of utmost importance to keep all possible lines of direct communication and cooperation open. In this light, the limiting of relations between states runs counter to the interests of the region and is particularly unfortunate.

Recent Arab press commentary and political dialogue have revealed a growing frustration in the Arab world. A realization is dawning that the Terror Intifada is ultimately counterproductive to the greater Arab cause, as it has only served to reinforce negative stereotypes of the Arab world as posing a threat to world peace and stability.

Unfortunately, the effects of the Terror Intifada's campaign of hate have not been limited to the Middle East. Israel is gravely concerned by the recent, significant rise in antisemitism, directed against Jewish communities in Europe and elsewhere that has been engendered by the virulent anti-Israeli rhetoric and anti-Jewish violence taking place in the region. These antisemitic attacks have included bombings of synagogues, death threats and violence against Jews, unprovoked assaults including murder, desecration of Jewish cemeteries and other forms of hate-vandalism. These incidents should arouse the deep concern of all civilized peoples. Israel calls on the governments of countries where the scourge of antisemitism is spreading to take all measures necessary to ensure the security of Jewish communities - and to bring the perpetrators of these deplorable attacks to justice.

Is Israel using excessive force in its response to the violence?

Every nation must protect its citizens from threats to their lives. No nation would acquiesce to a situation in which its citizens are victimized daily by indiscriminate terrorism. Israel is no exception.

The oft-repeated charge that Israel has used excessive force against innocent Palestinian civilians is a distortion of the truth. Israeli soldiers and civilians alike have had to face thousands of organized, violent and life-threatening attacks by Palestinians, only a small percentage of which have been reported in the media. These attacks have included violent riots, lynchings, machine-gun fire directed at residential neighborhoods, fire-bombings, roadside charges and ambushes, mortar barrages, suicide bombers and car bombs in crowded shopping areas. As a result of this violence, over 250 Israelis have been killed and thousands wounded.

Under these difficult conditions, the IDF [Israel Defense Forces] has acted with the greatest possible restraint, taking care to target only those responsible for the violence, and doing its utmost to prevent collateral civilian injury or loss of life.

Israel has no interest in escalating the violence. On the contrary, Israel believes it is imperative that the violence ends so that both parties can return to constructive negotiations. Israel maintains that a just and sustainable solution can be found only through dialogue, not armed conflict. However, as long as the violence exists, Israel has an indisputable responsibility to protect its citizens.

The Israeli government regrets the loss of any life, whether Jewish or Arab, in the present wave of violence. In the final analysis, however, responsibility for these casualties lies with the Palestinian Authority, which has initiated the violence and stubbornly refuses to bring it to an end.

The inaction of the Palestinian Authority in the face of widespread terrorism in its areas, coupled with the PA's public support for this violence, have left Israel no alternative but to take the necessary action itself to prevent continued terrorism. Therefore, Israel must undertake preventive, precisely targeted operations which are designed to bring about a cessation of these clear lethal threats.

Whenever possible, Israeli operations are directed toward arresting terrorists and their accomplices and bringing them to justice. In a small minority of cases, when arrests are impossible (mostly due to the lack of Israeli jurisdiction in PA areas), and when a clear, specific and imminent terrorist threat must be countered, Israel is forced to carry out other types of preventative operations. All civilized nations would act in a similar fashion given these circumstances.

Israel does not condone or take part in 'assassinations' or 'extra-judicial killings'. These terms are derived from spheres unrelated to armed conflict and are blatantly misleading descriptions of Israel's justified counter-terrorist operations in a clear situation of armed confrontation. The widespread use of these terms by Palestinian spokespersons is intended to portray Israel and its actions in a pejorative light, while disregarding the legal reality.

Currently, Israel in engaged in a situation best defined as an armed conflict. International law in general and the law of armed conflict in particular recognize that individuals who directly take part in hostilities cannot then claim immunity from attack or protection as innocent civilians. By initiating and participating in armed attacks against Israeli civilians or security personnel, such individuals have designated themselves as combatants in the conflict, and have forfeited such legal protection.

An individual who becomes a combatant is considered to remain a combatant until hostilities come to an end and not merely during that exact instant when the individual is carrying out or organizing an attack. They are therefore to be considered legitimate military targets both when planning future attacks, and after these attacks have been committed.

Israel only acts in a manner which is in compliance with the principles and practice of armed conflict, and makes every effort to avoid involvement of innocent civilians, taking action only in conditions where inaction by Israel would result in additional loss of innocent lives in imminent terrorist actions.

Shouldn’t all Palestinian refugees have the right to return to their homes?

After the 1948 war, no more than 800,000 Palestinians (and probably considerably fewer) were refugees. Today, the number has swelled to 3.7 million. Does Israel have any obligation to accept all of those? Where would they live? The current Israeli population is 6 million. If every Palestinian was allowed to move to Israel, the population would be nearly 10 million and more than 40 percent Arab. Given the Arabs’ significantly higher birth rate, the Jews would soon be a minority in their own country, the very situation they fought to avoid in 1948 and which the UN expressly ruled out in deciding on a partition of Palestine.

Wasn’t Israel created as a result of the Holocaust?

A common misperception is that the Jews were forced into the Diaspora by the Romans after the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem in the year 70 A.D. and then, 1,800 years later, suddenly returned to Palestine demanding their country back. In reality, the Jewish people have maintained ties to their historic homeland for more than 3,700 years, including a national language and a distinct civilization.
