Fact Check(Number One)
December 7, 2007
Subject; Israelis living in the Middle East.
False Claim; “The Musims were there first and it is their land, the Jews stole it.”
Made By; There are plenty of you, you know who you are. Some of you are professors, students, Code Pink members, and some of you former presidents and political figures.
-Actually, because the Jews have lived in the Middle East for about 3 and a half milleniums before Islam even came about. The Jewish people have every bit as muchÂ of a right to live there as the MuslimsÂ do.
For 3 thousand 7Â hundred years before the birth of the third Monotheistic religion “Islam”, the area that made up the West Bank, Gaza,Â Lebanon, and Jordan(or the Palestinian Mandates to British and French militaryÂ and civil officers after World War One)Â hadÂ moreÂ Jews than any other religious group currently living there. This is land thatÂ belongs to all theÂ people of the Middle East, which includes theÂ Jews. This land wasn’t stolen by Jews and there is no viable cause to wage a “Jihad” against them for sole propriety of it or it’s history.
In fact,Â land has absolutely nothing to with the Palestinian cause against the Jews. The Palestinians want toÂ eradicate the Jews from the face of the planet as exemplified by the speeches of Iranian President Amhedinejad and Hassan Nasrallah of Hezbollah. Now, I am not going to say that all Muslims are Jewish hating suicide bombers. Most of them are actually peaceful people, who oppose spontaneousÂ conflict like we do.
However, when it comes to a couple of rotten apples like Hezbollah leaderÂ Nasrallah, it would be extremely toughÂ for somebodyÂ with a fair mind and an educated background toÂ not be prejudice towards people like him and his ilk. Thus, the honest reputation of the Islamic people gets thrashed and soiled for no justified reason.Â Â Â
As you can see, the terror organizations such as PLO, Hezbollah, and Hamas are not doing this for land. Nor is it credible to repeat the absurdly ludicrous innuendo that Jews stole the land from Muslims. Next False claim, please!
