by Gene Trosper If you think the recent attacks on Israel was about land for peace, you are dead wrong. Israel was founded in 1948 and literally hours after Israel declared independence, all surrounding Arab nations attacked Israel with the goal of driving out the Jewish inhabitants. In fact, many of the Arabs living in Israel voluntarily left their homes, hoping they would return to a land free of Jewish presence. Of course, that didn't happen. Too many people focus on a timeline that begins with 1948, but when you go back before Israel's founding, numerous examples of genocidal behavior on the part of Arabs can be found, which destroys the popular narrative of poor, oppressed Palestinians who only want "their" land back. Try the 1834 looting of Safed. Just before the event took place, local Muslim cleric Muhammad Damoor said: "true believers would rise up in just wrath against the Jews, and despoil them of their gold and their silver and their jewels." Synagogues were burned, Jewish residents had everything stolen from them, and many were beaten, some to death. How about the 1929 Hebron massacre that saw 67 Jews killed in an unprovoked attack. Or maybe the 1938 Tiberias massacre which saw an Arab attack that resulted in 19 Jews killed, 11 of which were children? I can go on, but to continue the LIE that this is about land and NOT about genocidal Jew hatred is to be a party to evil.
