By the time the Arab-Israel war in 1947-1949 broke out, the Jews had established a little army and were able to defend themselves, not only against the local Arab forces, but also against the invasion of the surrounding Arab countries. In the process of trying to crush the newly established Jewish state, the Arab attacks paradoxically resulted in the enlargement of Israel’s territory and the loss of independence that the Palestinian Arabs should themselves have acquired at the same time. It also resulted in the creation of the festering Arab Refugee Problem. Ignoring the fact that it was they themselves who had started that war, the Arabs have continued to blame Israel for their misfortunes.

This pattern of falsehood, followed by attacks, met by Jewish retaliation continues to this day. The pattern widens with the falsehood in all its guises, invariably repeated by many of the nations of the world, who wittingly or unwittingly also choose to ignore the many documents and international agreements, not to mention biblical history (see Chapter 15 – The meaning of conquest and occupation), that give the Jews at least as much legitimacy – if not more – than any other people, to live in the little strip of earth called the Land of Israel, as it was known three thousand years ago.

Also largely overlooked in the almost universal denunciation against Israel in her ongoing mortal conflict is the declared aims of her adversaries to destroy her, the constant war against her, waged not only on the battlefield but through terrorist acts in public places, commercial and cultural boycott, delegitimization and vicious propaganda, all financed by an endless fund of petrodollars.

In almost every war that Israel has needed to fight, she has been stopped from forcing her enemies to surrender by the U.S.A., supposedly her main friend and ally. But America’s concern for the regular flow of oil supplies, and its rivalry with other world powers, have always come at the expense of Israel’s security. And this is understandable in the cynical world of Realpolitik. But it is quite possible that without this interference by the U.S.A. and the rest of the international community, Israel might have forged – if not absolute peace with the entire Arab and Muslim world – then at least acceptance of its existence.

At the time of writing, Iran seems to be very close to acquiring nuclear weapons. Time and again this large non-Arab, Muslim nation, immensely wealthy because of its huge oil reserves, has called for the destruction of Israel and is actively working for this through its militant proxy organizations, Hamas and Hizbollah. Iran is also working for political hegemony of the entire Middle East, much to the trepidation of many Arab countries in the region.

Iran’s aims – regionally and farther afield – constitute only one of the many global hazards, which we have mentioned in previous chapters, that are making the world a more dangerous place with every day that passes and which need very serious attention by the world’s leaders and all concerned people. Yet, an inordinately disproportional degree of time, attention and effort is focused on Israel’s stand vis a vis the Palestinians and other Arabs militarily engaged with her, and the onus is largely on Israel to capitulate to Arab demands. But by pressuring Israel to capitulate to Arab demands, Israel would most likely be committing national suicide because it would mean having a border in the center of the country that is only nine miles from the sea; it would also entail the influx of millions of hostile Arab refugees who would immediately create a demographic nightmare for Israel leading to its demise.

A greater degree of truthfulness on the part of the nations of the world would long ago have challenged the Arab people to look honestly at their own actions and real intentions. But instead of pointing out to them the wrongness entailed in repeatedly invading a neighboring country with the intention of destroying it, or allowing militants to launch terror attacks from their territories, or to wage a permanent global boycott as well as a campaign to demonize and delegitimize Israel, the Arabs have been encouraged to continue their quest to bring about Israel’s destruction by the unremitting international pressure on Israel in the form of censure, mass demonstrations, condemnations declared in many international forums and divestment from Israeli firms.

Furthermore, greater truthfulness on the part of the Arabs themselves, regarding everything that has happened in the last few generations would possibly enlighten and enable them to cope in a more constructive, less disruptive way with their obsession about Israel and provide practical solutions for the Palestine problem as well as the plight of the refugees.

And all the considerable time, money and effort by the nations of the world – Arabs, Muslims and others – could be far better spent on dealing with the other serious global problems that need urgent attention.

    One of the major weapons in this propaganda war against Israel is the “Remember these Children” website which compares the numbers of Arab children who have been killed in the conflicts to the number of Jewish children murdered by terrorists. The Arab list totals 1,437 since 2000 and the Jewish list totals 130. Not withstanding that such reporting is unsubstantiated, After visiting the site, I noticed that according to this report, most of the Israeli children were murdered in drive by shootings and human bombs exploding themselves in restaurants, buses and markets. In other words, the Arab terrorists targeted those children and murdered them in cold blood. For all of the Arab children, on the other hand, the site identifies the causes of death as gun shot wounds or explosions during the firefights with Arab Hamas fighters. What were their children doing in the middle of a war zone? That is clear and convincing evidence that the Hamas thugs where using the local children as human shields. Soldiers are trained to return fire when fired upon. The bushwhacking urban guerrillas who fire at enemy troops from a neighborhood full of children are the ones causing the deaths of those children.
