The problem of “peace, peace, when there is no peace,” – premises and conclusion
It’s fairly black and white. It’s also fairly simple if you strip away falsehoods that add confusion, not truth, to the facts.
(1) Since Israel wants no more than to be left alone to let her citizens each live a happy and prosperous life, we know they are not the problem in promoting peace. They are not the aggressors; they are constantly on the defensive.
(2) Since the Palestinians (Arabs who voluntarily left their homeland just prior to the 1967 attack on Israel) and surrounding Arab nations will not let Israel live in peace, we see they are the agitators causing the problem. They use the reasonable-sounding pretense that they want land for the Palestinians when what they really want is removal of Israel and the elimination of the Jewish people.
“If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.” ~ Benjamin Netanyahu
Note: The Arabs who did not leave the land as advised by fellow Arabs prior to the 1967 war fared much better than those who did. They were offered Israeli citizenship. Those who did leave under promise to be taken care of by the Arabs ended up being neglected to live in squalor and to be used as political pawns.
(3) We also know that Palestinians would rather be citizens of Israel than of a Palestinian state. (http://politicalmavens.com/index.php/2008/06/23/77-palestinian-arabs-we-like-living-in-israel-best/) Therefore, in view of the three premises above, the conclusion is for the United Nations to Israel control and ownership over more land. That’s it. The Palestinians may then move into parts of the new land which Israel would designate for them.
The Arab muslims are born into a culture of hatred and destruction. (http://youtu.be/FT6iKFQDEP4)
The Jews contribute much to the world. The muslims interested in ridding the world of Israel do not. They are destroyers. That was made more than clear after they took over the Gaza Strip and gleefully destroyed the beautiful greenhouses.
The Arab muslim mentality in regard to the Jews should be discouraged. If it were possible, as in a child’s game of fair and unfair, those destructive Arab muslims should be penalized in losing more land every time they send a missile or a suicide bomber toward Israel.
Jerusalem belongs to the Jews by virtue of their historical books
The Jewish Bible mentions Jerusalem by name 669 times. The Koran never mentions it by name. Case closed in regard to historical significance. Jerusalem belongs to the Jews. Mecca and Medina belong to the Arabs.
The claim on Jerusalem as the third holiest site in mainstream Islamic writings is fairly recent, first made in the twentieth century. Sura17:1 is the “proof” they found they could use for their claim as it refers to the “furthest mosque:”
“Glory be unto Allah who did take his servant for a journey at night from the Sacred Mosque to the Furthest Mosque.” In 632 AD when the Prophet Mohammed died, there were no mosques in Jerusalem as it was at that time a Christian city. Therefore, the “furthest mosque” could not refer to one in Jerusalem at that time. Jerusalem was captured by Khalif Omar six years after Mohammed’s death, and the mosque which Islam today claims as the one from which Mohammed journeyed did not exist for three generations after the prophet’s death. Mohammed obviously, according to scholars, intended the mosque in Medina as the “furthest mosque.”
Muslims claim Jerusalem as their third holiest city only because it’s another way for them to raise havoc. Would they like to suffer the same burden they have imposed upon the Jews with some made-up claims surrounding Mecca and Medina and then be subject to having those cities divided? Fortunately for them, the Jews of Israel are too honorable and dead sincere about their religion to ever do such a thing.
Encourage more of Israel.
“It’s time to recognize this basic truth: Israel is not what’s wrong about the Middle East. Israel is what’s right about the Middle East.” ~ Benjamin Netanyahu
