AirBnB Gives in to Terrorist Supporters

AirBndB ban on Jews putting up their homes in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) was the result of Pro-Palestinian activists putting pressure on the company to boycott them for supporting what they call the occupation.

Jews have a historical connection to the area of Judea and Samaria well before the establishment of the state of Israel.

Abraham purchased the Cave of the Patriarchs to bury his wife Sara which was one of the first Jewish acquisition in the land of Israel 4000 years ago.

Tomb of Joseph in the city of Shechem (Nabulus) is where Joseph was laid to rest more than 3000 years ago as well as the Tomb of Rachel the matriarch buried in Beit Lehem.

Hebron had a continual Jewish presence for thousands of years, when the Karaite Jews left Hebron the Jews from Turkey replaced them along with Hassidim from the Chabad movement and later Zionist religious Jews also arrived making a community who co-existed with its Arab neighbors.

Unfortunately Muslim extremists led by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al Husseini (Who collaborated with the Nazis in killing Jews in Europe after the fleeing the Palestinian Mandate while the British had a warrant for his arrest) incited a mob of violent rioters to murder 67 Jews and subsequently the British expelled all the remaining Jews who survived.

Only after Jews returned to Hebron after 1967 did they still fight against their own governments’ religious discrimination of not allowing them full hours to pray in the cave of the Patriarchs or reclaim Jewish property like the Abraham our Father synagogue that was demolished and turned into a goat pin.

Beit Hadassah building was a symbol of co-existence between Arabs and Jews where Jews treated Arab patients was left desolate was only allowed to be reclaimed by the Jews after young mothers forced themselves into the building with young children where they lived without electricity or running water.

Only after six Jews were killed in front of the building by a Muslim terrorist did the Begin administration finally allow the Jews to live in Hebron on their properties after ten years of a ban on Jews returning to their property in the city.

Following archeological excavations on the lands’ of Yishai was the discovery of the old city of Hebron dating back even before Abraham the Patriarch and was recently added as a site to the Israel Nature Authorities.

Israeli governmental administrations have made life difficult for Jews living in Hebron by preventing them from growing and allowing left wing NGOs to enter Hebron and harass the Jewish residents like the TIPH representative who slapped a Jewish child in the face and was not even arrested for assaulting a child.

If it would have been a Jewish adult smacking an Arab child in the face that person would have faced a jail sentence.

Unfortunately the government has a double standard when dealing with non-Jewish Europeans leftists and Jews living or visiting the city.

Only after Rabbi Shlomo Ra’anan was murdered by a terrorist in 1998 after Jews having returned to Hebron 30 years previously did the Prime Minister Ehud Barack Finally gave permission to build actual apartments around the trailers in the neighborhood.

Gush Etzion area was established before the establishment of the State of Israel on land purchased during the 1920s where Jews from Yemen, Europe and Israeli born Jews created agricultural communities.

These communities were decimated by Arab militants who massacred the defending inhabitants of these communities and only taking three of them captive to Jordan.

Only after the Six Day war were the children of these communities able to go back to their original homes and reestablish the Jewish communities that were obliterated by the Arab armies.

After the Six Day war archeological evidence was discovered in Shiloh that showed where the original tabernacle was and evidence of thousands of animals sacrificed there were all first born kosher animals.

While Jews living in Judea and Samaria have been trying to live with their Arab neighbors by providing them with electricity and running water which they did not have under Jordanian rule.

Arabs in the area have been constantly inciting against the hand that feeds them by promoting hate in schools against Jews.

Most communities help Arabs by providing for their families by paying them a European salary and allowing them to make six to ten thousand shekels a month as opposed to the two thousand shekels they would make in the Palestinian authority area.

If there would have been no Jews at all in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) Arabs would have a dramatic worse life with absolutely no ability to improve their lives and have an even worse quality of life.

Even though Jews provide many Arabs across Judea and Samaria with jobs in their communities whether they be medical professionals in Efrat or janitors in the Otniel Yeshiva.

After all the help Palestinians get to improving the quality of their lives extremists still find the excuse to murder Jews which is why every single Rami Levy supermarket in Judea and Samaria have been scenes of murder where Palestinians have continually set out to murder Jews in those supermarkets which are supposed to be a symbol of co-existence.

Air BNB has decided to side with all the Muslim extremists who are against any kind of co-existence with Jews and want to live in a totally Jewish free country just like the Nazis wanted to do in Germany.

Brian Chesky has done nothing more than give into the hands of terrorist anti-Semitic supporters who sanction the murder of Jews and deny the rights of Jews to live anywhere in Israel they want.

Adding insult to injury Chesky stated he wants to expand into Iran when the conditions permit.

According to Chesky boycotting Jews who live in a liberal democracy is fine while supporting a country that is a fascist theocratic state executing homosexuals is absolutely fine.

Iran the country who funds Hezbollah a terrorists group, was responsible for the deaths of Jews in Argentina and funded the insurgency against US troops in Iraq.

Banning Jews who live in the area of Judea and Samaria Chesky insulted very Jewish civilian killed in a terror attack in this region and condemned every single business owner who hires Palestinians and tries to create co-existence between Jews and Arabs.

Chesky has sided with Hamas and extremists like Marwan Barghouti who continually incites against Israel and supports BDS.
