THEY…AND US … Thoughts, Facts and Pictures .ליקוט ועריכת המצגת (בלבד) – יגאל מורג Editing (only !) Yigal Morag English version - Dubon Last week, for no extraordinary reason, I received two mails that contained amazing facts related to the conflict between the Jews/ Israel vs. the Palestinian. As if these were not enough - On Wednesday, Channel 10 program "The Source" aired an impressive report on the hostility against Israel around the world, and the expressions of hatred towards us. The boycott of Israeli products started on products from "occupied territories ", but now it is carried against all Israeli products. While taking a break in typing those words, I read in the weekend magazin of "Ma'ariv” a fascinating interview with Israel's ambassador to the UN – Prof. Gavriela Shalev, who nowadays, is at the end of task. She tells how our name has been demeaned , how much the international press is biased against us, and how difficult it is today to try to explain aggressive (often justified) activities of the State of Israel. One example was about an interview she gave to the TV, during the “Cast Lead” operation in Gaza. While she was being interviewed in the TV studio, trying to persuade that Israel could not forsake its citizens (then under constant shelling of Hamas) the screen was divided: one half showed her while the second half showed a wounded Palestinian child whose limbs had been torn by IDF bombing ... There was no question to whom the sympathy of the viewers was aimed! Asked why she did not show, the wounded children of Sderot? She answered: "we do not descend to this level!” Which is probably just our problem. We conduct our activities and publications according to "Western culture", while our enemies despise truth and facts. Do we have any chance to win in this kind of struggle? The chanel 10 program mentioned earlier, interviewed a leader of thr association that promotes “boycott Israeli producrs” campaign, an elderly straightforward Englishman. Among others he was asked why did’nt he raise his voice and demand a boycott on Russia, for example, whose attrocities in Chchenia are much worse and the number of civilians killed is many times fold than in Gaza, or the United States actions in Afghanistan ... and a some other similar cases, the man answered cynically “Our actions would hardly tickle them and besides no decision against them could ever pass the UN. You are small and vulnerable, one can act agains you and succeed! Now back to the emails I mentioned at the beginning. Firstly an interesting book, and then some surprising pictures. Yigal Morag From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict over Palestine is a 1984 book by Joan Peters about demographics of the Arab population of Palestine before the formation of the State of Israel According to the book a large fraction of the Arabs of Palestine were not descendants of long-term residents of Palestine at the time of the formation of Israel in 1948, but had arrived in waves of immigration starting in the 19th century and continuing through the period of the British Mandate. Translator’s note: The book was lauded by some reviewers upon release but has also been heavily criticized by many others, mainly anti-Zionists like Finkelstein and Chomsky . For a more balanced opinion I suggest reading an article by Prof. Yehusua Porath of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, who criticises sharply the scientific value of the book, without denying most of the basic facts. Thttp://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/1986/jan/16/mrs-peterss-palestine/ Dubon Sept. 2010 A few facts about the population of Jerusalem in the 19th cebtury Are the Moslems “new immigrants”? From J. Peters book From Time Immemorial Long before Zionism, in 1859, only 4000 Moslem inhabitants lived in Jerusalem, they amounted to 30% of the population. At the eve of world war I, their percentage dwindled to 14% only. The numbers are as follows: Year total Cristians Moslems Jews 1859 13,340 3,340 )25%( 4,000 )30%( )45%( 6,000 1896 45,520 8,748 (19%( 8,560 )19%( 28,112 )62%( 1900 45,520 )19%( 8,748 8,560 )19%( 28,288 )62%( 1912 70,000 15,000 )21%( 10,000 )14%( 45,000 )64%( The majority of the Muslim population living today in Jerusalem migrated after Zionism, to make a living among the Jews and in English, just as nowadays, “refugees” from Sudan and other African countries smuggle into Israel to get a job. The “Shahid” Yasser Arafat, declared he was born in Jerusalem. Actually he was born in Egypt to a family originated from North Africa. His family moved to Jerusalem to make a living. In the economic boom created by Zionist immigration. Translator’s note: The numbers are correct for Jerusalem, where a Jewish majority has been known since early 19 century. In the whole country, Jews were a minority. Before Zionist immigration, most Jews lived in the “holy cities” : Jerusalem, Hebron, Tzfat and Tiberias. Plus small Jewish communities scattered in all other parts of the land including some villages )e.g. Peqi’in(. Dubon sep. 2010 Guy Bechor – on J.Peters book (Guy Bechor is an Israeli Journalist) … It is the duty of every Jew and Israeli to know the facts if he wants to cope with the falsifying though very successing Arab Propaganda. We should demand that the Ministry of Education will erect a team of experts to prepare new history books based on research and expose the facts that have been unknown till now. No wonder that the Arabs managed to spread and exagerate their lies to monstreoius dimensions. Arab mentality has not been acustomed to look and cope with truth. On the otherhand, they adopt lies and tend to believe vehemently in the stories they invent. Ther is hardly any self criticism of any kind in Arab culture. Whenever an Arab Moslem rises and tries to make a kind of soul searching, a “fatwa” (a religious order) is issued and he is lucky if he can keep his head on his shoulders . Arabs brain wash the minds of their children, And are doing the same to the rest of the world. Israel cannot compete with the same weapons. Our values are different and thee is no reason to argue against the situation. We can succeed if and when, we’ll recognize the historical facts and will broadcast it from all the screens and forums. The only way to fight lies is by presenting the truth! When Joan Peters came here in the first time as a and journalist human rights activists, her opinions were similar to the common state of mind. She was shocked to reveal the true facts. It is unbelievable that we don’t even bother to learn these facts. In her preface to the Hebrew edition Peters writes: ”… it is imperative that the essential arguments are based on facts, the alternative is to bury selectively certains facts because “they do not lead to peace”. This alternative fan lead to a creation of an unjustified open void in the understanding of how the conflict evolved … wordings based on distortion and perverted history cannot hold water for long.” The name of the book “From Time Immemorial” markes the the start of the dispersion of the greatest lie in history by the UN that surrendered to the Arab world. According to th UN deffinition, a refugee is someone who lived in a certain place “from time immemorial”, generation after generation, and one cannot remember was had been before. Under Arab pressure the UN created a special deffinition for Arabs who had fled Palestine in 1947-8. Any Arab who lived in Palestine 2 (TWO !!) years before 1948 has the right to receive from the UN all benefits of a refugee. This was the foundation of the geatest lie in history ! MEDIA MATTERS 'Film to 'dispel Arab propaganda Based on groundbreaking book contesting 'myths' of Holy Land conflict Posted: May 20, 2002 am Eastern 1:00 By Art Moore WorldNetDaily.com 2010 © Is Arab propaganda shaping the predominant view of the Holy Land conflict? That is the claim of a planned documentary film based on Joan Peters' groundbreaking best ".seller "From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict Peters is a former White House foreign policy adviser for the Middle East and a self.described liberal who set out to investigate the plight of the Palestinian refugees When she went to Israel in the mid-1970s "the deprivation of Arab refugees' human rights and the political manipulation of their unfortunate situation were unconscionable Here is a batch of pictures taken lately. I present them exactly as I have received them by email, including the following question If, in spite of the economic crisis and media coverage, you have managed to travel lately can you guess where these have been photographs were taken? Yigal Morag ?DID YOU GUESS RIGHT This is what the media does not show you !!! from… Gaza Yes, looks like the Hamas got plenty of money and building material to spend in Gaza, they sure don’t look like as if Starvation and .famine are in every street.
