There has been no shortage of people throughout the world who blame Israel for the attacks by the Iranian proxy Hamas. All the flimsy excuses given by people who hate Jews and the very existence of a Jewish state use words that are based on fiction treated as fact. No actual historical fact is cited and sourced, since there are no historical facts to support the claim. Those who hate Jews do not react kindly to responding with facts and real history, since facts and history do not matter to those who hate.
One of the biggest lies by those who hate Jews is they are all Ashkenazi who have always lived in Europe with no historical foundation tying them to anywhere else in the world. Sephardic and Ethiopian Jews do not exist in their twisted minds, since they are not from Europe. The Jews of Baghdad who were forced out at loss of life and property were never in Baghdad.
The attacks on the Jewish people who were living there for generation prior to the return of the state of Israel never happened, because it does not fit the narrative. In regards to the Balfour Declaration, it either never happened or does not say what it actually says. Citing it verbatim does nothing to sway those who hate Jews.
They believe the European Jews invaded the country of Palestine, even though no such country ever existed, and displaced those who had been living there for generations. The only ones living in Jerusalem for generations prior to the creation of Israel were the Jewish people who were descended from a lineage dating back thousands of years. Palestine and Palestinian did not come into existence until after the British took control of the region and renamed the territory that makes up Israel and Jordan today.
There is a belief that Jordan has always existed and was never part of the original two-state solution where the land was partitioned in one of the earliest votes taken by the U.N. Anyone who questions Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state never questions Jordan’s right to exist as an Islamic state. Palestinians, not as the word was used originally, but today already have their own country, Jordan.
The British may have referred to what is Israel and Jordan today as Palestine, but there was a distinction between Arab and Palestinian. The Arabs were the Muslim and Christians who lived within the region, but the Jewish people were called Palestinian. History denied by Jewish hatred does not mean history did not happen as it did.
The first time Muslims started to refer to themselves as Palestinians was when Arafat ran the PLO. He did it for the purpose of marketing what was then a Soviet backed terrorist organization funded partly by Jordan. Rather than challenge the word being used incorrectly, much of the world went along with the bastardization of Palestinian.
It was in Jordan, not Israel, that Arafat tried to create his own country by use of terrorist actions. Women, children and the elderly followed their husbands and began to live in the land Arafat promised to make for them. The response by the Jordanian government was to declare war on all of them, regardless of age and sex. The PLO lost the ground they held within Jordan as people of all ages were slaughtered in a moment in time referred to as, ‘Black September.’
There was no call from anyone in the world to negotiate with the PLO; just like there was no call for the country of Jordan to be divided in the name of peace. The slaughter of civilians never had any repercussions against the Jordanian government.
There were those who were put in refugee camps in Jordan where they remain to this day. There are no refugee camps in Israel. When the PLO was forced out of Jordan, Arafat did not take the loss out on the Jordanians, but the Israelis.
Since Israel once again became a nation, it has been at war or under attack by nations or terrorist proxies of those same nations. The lulls that come and go are always short-lived. When Israel won her War for Independence, shock was the average reaction from most who believed they could wash their hands of the Jewish nation.
The early wars always came at a loss of land by aggressive means without one word being spoken about how the land was taken and what was being done on the land held by what was an occupying force as it is defined today. There was no talk of war crimes, illegal settlements, an apartheid state or any other accusation used by those who hate Jews level against Israel today.
It was only when Israel retook the land, which made the nation far more defensible than it was that the false statements began. The demand that Israel take part in new two-state solution in the name of peace do not want peace. They want the destruction of Israel and every Jewish person dead.
Every nation has a right to defend itself against terrorists and foreign militaries who invade. A successful campaign, such as how Jordan handled the PLO, is quickly forgotten. Israel is the only country in the world who comes under criticism for doing far less than the Jordanians when it comes to defending themselves against terrorists who use schools and hospitals to fire rockets, which is considered a war crime that no one wants to bring up when demonizing Israel.
The majority of American Jews who stick their noses up at Israelis and lecture are not the ones who experienced spending even an hour in a bomb shelter. They tend to view socialism as the solution and have no problem ignoring the anti-Semites within their movement. In truth, they want Israel to give away land to make it easier to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth, since democracies and revolutions cannot exist. They are too busy hating democracy to think about the repercussions of the loss of Israel to the Jewish people who do not live there.
They are quick to compare every person who does not embrace socialism as a Nazi, fascist or some other name they associate with Hitler. There is no acknowledgement that Stalin was an anti-Semite who plotted against the Jews with his own final solution called ‘The Doctors’ Plot.’ The suffering of the Jews that came under the Soviet Union are swept aside as if it never happened, just like they ignore the Soviet invasion of Poland.
Prior to Stalin and Hitler having their pact, there was no mention within the Soviet Union of Hitler and the Nazis being anti-Jewish. Trotsky was called a Nazi agent and no one within the Soviet Union questioned what they were told. Even after Hitler ordered the invasion of the Soviet Union, there was no mention of Jews being targeted by the Nazis.
After the Nazis fell and Germany conquered by allied powers, the Soviet government never mentioned the Jews as being included in the holocaust, which is the primary, but not only, reason those nations have many who remain committed to the belief that there was no holocaust. Today, those who continue to teach the lie do so to keep the Jews from looking sympathetic to their own people in and out of what used to be the Soviet Union. It is easier to hate someone when they are not viewed through a human lens.
There are many Jews in America and the world who have no problem echoing the talking points of hatred. Jews who lie about Israel, be it an apartheid state or some other talking point, view Zionism as Trotsky did. Zionism was to be crushed, since he believed the only way for the Jews to survive was to stop being Jews and meld into the countries they lived with no distinction between Jew and Gentile. When talks of Israel becoming a state happened in his lifetime, he took the same attitude as many socialist Jews do today, which is Israel is nothing more than a symbol of an archaic system called Judaism that can never be tolerated.
Jewish hatred is the motivation of those who deny more than the holocaust. They deny Israel has a right to exist. There can be no Jewish state anywhere in the world and use any lie they can cling to in order to justify their hatred. History, much like the truth, is a casualty in a very real war against anti-Semites taking place across the world through one of the most powerful weapons ever invented. The written word.
