Subject: Netanyahu at his best
Even those who
aren't particularly sympathetic to Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu,
could get a good measure of satisfaction from this interview
with British Television during the retaliation against Hamas'
shelling of Israel.
asked him: "How come so many more Palestinians have been
killed in this conflict than Israelis?" (A nasty question if
there ever was one!)
you sure that you want to start asking in that direction?"
(Falling into the trap) Why not?
"Because in World War II more Germans were killed than British
and Americans combined, but there is no doubt in anyone's mind that
the war was caused by Germany's aggression. And in response to the
German blitz on London, the British wiped out the entire city of
Dresden, burning to death more German civilians than the number of
people killed in Hiroshima. Moreover, I could remind you that in
1944, when the R.A.F. tried to bomb the Gestapo Headquarters in
Copenhagen, some of the bombs missed their target and fell on
a Danish children's hospital, killing 83 little children. Perhaps
you have another question?"
Benjamin Netanyahu gave another interview and was asked about
Israel's occupation of Arab lands. His response was, "It's our
land". The reporter (CNN or the like) was stunned - read below
"It's our land..." It's important information since we
don't get fair and accurate reporting from the media and facts tend
to get lost in the jumble of daily events.

BRIEF FACTS ON THE
ISRAELI CONFLICT TODAY... (It takes just 1.5 minutes to read!)
It makes sense and
it's not slanted. Jew and non-Jew -- it doesn't matter.
1. Nationhood and Jerusalem: Israel became a nation in 1312 BC,
two thousand (2000) years before the rise of Islam.
2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of
a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment
of the modern State of Israel.
3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BC, the Jews have had dominion
over the land for one thousand (1000) years with a continuous
presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.
4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 lasted no more
than 22 years.
5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital.
Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim
entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never
sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders
did not come to visit.
6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy
Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.
7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed never came to
8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with their backs
9. Arab and Jewish Refugees: in 1948 the Arab refugees were
encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the
land of Jews. Sixty-eight percent left (many in fear of
retaliation by their own brethren, the Arabs), without ever seeing
an Israeli soldier. The ones who stayed were afforded the same
peace, civility, and citizenship rights as everyone else.
10. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due
to Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms.
11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is
estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from
Arab lands is estimated to be about 800,000.
12. Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not absorbed or integrated
into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab
territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II,
theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been
absorbed or integrated into their own people's lands. Jewish
refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger
than the state of New Jersey.
13. The Arab-Israeli Conflict: the Arabs are represented
by twenty two separate nations, not including the Palestinians.
There is only one Jewish nation. The Arab nations initiated all five
wars and lost. Israel defended itself each time and
14. The PLO's Charter still calls for the destruction of the State
of Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank
land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied
15. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the
Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule,
all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made
accessible to people of all faiths.
16. The UN Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security
Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against
17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990,
429 were directed against Israel.
18. The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem synagogues
were destroyed by the Jordanians.
19. The UN was silent while the Jordanians
systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount
20. The UN was silent while the Jordanians enforced an
apartheid-like a policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple
Mount and the Western Wall.
These are incredible times. We have to ask what our role should
be. What will we tell our grandchildren about what we did
when there was a turning point in Jewish destiny, an
opportunity to make a difference?
START NOW - Send this to 18 other people you know and ask them to
send it to eighteen others, Jew and non-Jew - it doesn't really
