Haindava Keralam - Top Ten Lies about Israel

  • tags: no_tag

    • LIE #1

      Israel was created by European guilt over the Nazi Holocaust. Why should Palestinians pay the price?
    • LIE #2

      Had Israel withdrawn to its June 1967 borders, peace would have come long ago.
    • LIE #3

      Israel is the main stumbling block to achieving a Two-State solution.
    • LIE#4

      Nuclear Israel not Iran is the greatest threat to peace and stability.
    • The U.S. and Europe can afford to wait to see what the Iranian regime does with its nuclear ambitions. But Israel cannot. She is on the front lines and remembers every day the price the Jewish people paid for not taking Hitler at his word. Israel is not prepared to sacrifice another six million Jews on the altar of the world’s indifference.
    • LIE #5

      Israel is an Apartheid State deserving of International Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaigns.
    • LIE #6

      Plans to build 1,600 more homes in East Jerusalem prove Israel is ‘Judaizing’ the Holy City.
    • LIE #7

      Israeli policies endanger U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.

      The charge that Israel endangers U.S. troops in Iraq or the AF-Pak region is an update of the old “stab in the back” lie that Jews always betray their own friends, and the libel spouted by Henry Ford and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion that “Jews are the father of all wars.”
    • LIE #8

      Israeli policies are the cause of worldwide anti-Semitism.
    • LIE #9

      Israel, not Hamas, is responsible for the “humanitarian catastrophe” in Gaza. Goldstone was right when he charged that Israel was guilty of war crimes against civilians.
    • LIE #10

      The only hope for peace is a single, bi-national state, eliminating the Jewish State of Israel.

      The One-State solution, promoted by academics, is a non-starter because it would eliminate the Jewish homeland. However, the current pressures on Israel are equally dangerous.
    • In 2010, most Middle East experts believe that the only hope for enduring peace is two states with defined final borders. But too many diplomats, pundits, academics and church leaders ignore the fact that current polls show that while most Israelis favor a Two-State solution, most Palestinians continue to oppose it.
    • My previous employer had offices in Israel also. Almost all the Israelites come to the office ever prepared for war. It is one of the few countries capable of recognising and tackling Islamic terrorism.
