A Bird's Eye Look At The Historic Background In The Middle East
A Bird's eye look at the historic 'Israeli - Arab conflict'
Around 2,000 years ago, 70 AD, the Romans that have conquered Israel, the Jewish people, the Jewish land, (after killing Jesus) destroy Jews' second temple, massacre hundreds of thousands following a revolt against Rome's oppression and prohibition on practicing Judaism , mass torture and a complete suffocating siege on Jerusalem [an armed rebellion, one which was disapproved by the rabbis & by any religious leaders], they expell the majority of Jews out of the land [as was expected ahead of time, throught the Jewish prophets, because God expects from his people - the Jews much more than from other nations, still, the cruel Romans "carried" out the evil deeds].
The Romans have also renamed Israel as 'Palestina'. The land however was mostly deserted and mainly survived by some Jews who still lived there.
Many years later, at the beginning of the 600's, an Arab named Muhammad will create a new religion called Islam, he will massacre the Jews of Madina for not following him, lead attacks first on Arabs themselves and on all who has not accepted him, this battle on non-Muslims still continues on today, he will later on also claim that he had a dream that he was in the Jewish city of Israel: Jerusalem. Meanwhile, in Christianity, Jews' refusal to change their religion to which [Jewish born] Jesus came up with caused resentment among Christians, and hatred brought the belief that it was the Jews who "caused" Jesus to die, then this fanatical religious hatred even gave birth to all kind of imaginary "theories", stereotypes blatant lies and libels, persecution, mass murder, etc. Later on in persecuting the Jews in Europe, they were expelled time and time again (often called to return after being expelled, for their urgent need of Jews' talent, intelligence and seriousness in life - vital for Europeans economy).
Many European haters have called upon them to return to their homeland Israel.
This traditional hatred was used by Adolf Hitler in his delusional "Aryan" supremacy to use Christians who still hold that hatred, against the Jews he was so obsessed with in his animosity, as he came up with most criminal idea ever known to mankind [Though, already in biblical times, between the first and second Jewish temples, it was the WICKED Haman who planned total extermination, genocide, as stated in the holy book of Esther, where Hebrews / Israelites were already referred to as JEWS], so far as implementing a 'final solution', aka, to exterminate all Jews (no matter if they are religious, or not, communists or not, Zionists or not, secular, atheists, Jews with no ideology at all, men, women, children, babies, all were doomed by the infamous criminal number one in history, that has caused a total of around 50 million deaths, whereas at least 6,000,000 were Jews, murdered for no other reason then for pertaining to one particular root, being, simply, Jews). Muslims fight Christians for decades, long and bloody battles. The Turks had a stronghold on the holy-land after defeating the Christians.
Jews were generally not persecuted under the Turkish Ottoman rule in Israel "Palestine". In the late 1800's Jewish immigrants and Arab immigrants, both rose to a new level, as Zionists started to cultivate the land, in the early 1900's under the British colonialism & occupation, Jews were restricted in entry to their historic land but Arabs were not, a vicious rule that has continued during and after Hitler's holocaust, when poor Jewish victims tried to escape], this imbalance "policy" by the British which was pushed by the Arabs out of racism and bigotry to "others", has "made" the Arabs a majority for a while.
One of the main Arab racist & Islamic fascist agitators was Haj Amin Al Husseini the infamous 'Mufti', he was behind such massacres as in Hebron 1929 where innocent unarmed Jewish were sloughtered by Arabs Muslims, he was also behind the 1941 'Farhud' pogrom on the Jews of Baghdad. Prior to attacking the Jews, he participated in the Islamic genocide on Armenian Christians in 1915, where 1.5 million were murdered. He was the one Arab (though not "Aryan") leader that made a pact with Hitler and led a Bosnian Muslim division of the SS to carry out atrocities against the Serb Christians and against Jews.
The United Nations founded post WW 2, after 2,000 years of persecuting the Jews and so many millions murdered [before the six millions murdered by Germany's nazis, all throughout history in Europe there were countless victims], gave "permission" to the Jews to re-establish their homeland Israel, along side an Arab state, basically a two states solution.
The Jews agreed, all they wanted past and present, is to 'live and let live', but the Arabs refused, the bigots wanted all of the land for themselves. 1948 Israel is re-established, ALL Arab nations vow to destroy Israel, declare war on this little newborn state, Arab leaders vouch for genocide! to "Throw the Jews into the Sea". Arab leaders call upon Arabs residing in Israel-"Palestine" to evacuate their homes for a while until "mission -- of throwing into the sea-- is accomplished". Tiny Israel heroically defends itself and thwarts gigantic Arabs' attacks. A phenomenon of "Arab refugees" is born, but also a larger refugees population, that from the Arab on Jews, between 800,000 & 900,000 Jews are expelled from Arab Muslim countries: Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, etc.
Their land, properties confiscated. The contrast however how Jews dealt with Jewish refugees and how Arabs have dealt with Arab refugees is huge, Jews are completely absorbed into Israel, Arabs have rejected the Arab refugees, keeping them down, and using them as a foot ball against Israel.
As the Saudi Arab king Fahd said: "Next to the Jews, we hate the 'Palestinians' the most". Arabs terrorize Jews, attacking the innocent, as Arab terror intensifies & Arab leaders threaten again and again to annihilate the Jews, the 1967 war breaks out, Israel that had enough, succesfully conquers some Egyptian land and more land pertaining to Israel - historically and Biblically but not granted by the UN, though the Arabs illegally defied the UN in rejecting Israel and UN's two states solution. The balance of world's powers plays out in the middle east, USSR supports and arms the Arabs, US is on Israel, [the surviving David vs Goliath] side.
The local Arabs [which most of their parents or grandparents have immigrated to the holy land] start to call themselves as "Palestinians" (PS no connection to "Philistines" who were NOT Arabs nor spoke Arabic, and are all gone, absolutely nothing remained from them). Continued Arabs' attacks targeting unarmed civilians, rose in the 1970, such as the massacres of school children in Avivim, Maalot and other attacks, more famous in the 1972 massacre of Israeli Athletes in Munich by the Egyptian born: Yasser Arafat, the leader (somehow...) of the Arab "Palestinians". He is in Jordan and as a trouble maker creates the "Palestinian" intifada attack on Jordan's government, 1970 - 'Black September', but Jordan quickly oppresses even more the "Palestinians", kills many, makes mass arrests, in 1971 the PLO is expelled.
He finds a safe heaven in Syrian's occupied Lebanon, he adds more destruction to the already tense relations between Christians & Muslims in that country. He Islamizes the Christian Bethlehem, oppresses Christian Arabs in general. In 1973 Israel is again attacked by Arab nations, mainly by Egypt and Syria, a delicate date is chosen, the cruel Saadat and his advisers chose Yom Kippur a Jewish fast day, the vicious Arabs chose the time of day, towards the end of the day (before breaking the fast). The attack was in a surprise, many were killed, although Israel managed to win the war (as all wars), still the Arabs saw it as "victory", as a blood thirst cult, for the simple reason that many 'Jews were killed'. In 1976, amidst civil war between Christians and Muslims in Lebanon, the Muslim "Palestinians", PLO - Arafat, and the Syrians carry out the massacre of Christians in Damour, this was the reason for Christian Arabs massacring "Palestinians" in Sabra Shatila in 1982. 1978-1979, Israel's leader Menachem Begin & Egypt's Anuar Sadaat break a peace agreement in which Israel shall give back the land conquered in 1967, Sinai that is [which so it did], and the Arabs give nothing, just a "promise" not to attack, and so a cold peace comes in place between Israel - Egypt.
Syria refuses to 'sit down for any peace negotiations' and leads many in the Arab world against Egypt & its more moderate stand. Goliath Arabs using it's oil power, intimidate nations to be against Israel in boycotts, and in the United Nations.
Basically hijacking the UN for the Arabist agenda, of bashing Israel no matter what it does.
This Arab control worldwide intensifies as the years pass by and expands into all international bodies. On another front, in Iran, the Shah rules, he is an ally of the United States but he is not exactly a democratic leader, US president (called by so many the worst ex president) Jimmy Carter pushes pressure on Iran.
In 1979 a revolution happens, not what the US wanted nor what most in the world have wished for, an Islamic revolution, a militant Islam, a Shiite extremism, headed by the Ayatollah Khomeini. Immediately, the American embassy is hijacked, the workers kidnapped for 444 days, until US has a better leader, a courageous Ronald Reagan. Iranian Satanic Mullahs declare that the United States is the "big Satan" and Israel is the "little Satan'. Millions of Iranians are oppressed under Islamic Republic, standing out even in the "usual' Islamic dictatorships standards.
Asides from killing of minorities such as Ahwazi, Kurds, Druze, which even information is so scarce out of that jail house known as state of Iran. They are behind creating, training and arming the Islamic Hezbullah in Lebanon, the 'Party of Allah', whose goal is creating a militant Islamic Shia theocracy in Lebanon with [no Christians or any non Muslims' in Lebanon, and ultimately in the entire middle east including "liberating Jerusalem" as they call it], Hezbollah carried out terror attack such as on US marine barricades in Lebanon in 1983, the US was stationed there to keep peace between Christians & Muslims figting civil war. Israel, its civilians being attacked by Arafat's terrorists - based in Lebanon (as a practical 'Palestinian' army there), enters that country in 1982 to root them out, at first is received by local Arabs, Muslims with candies and flowers, as most Lebanese want the "Palestinian" troublemakers out, but the operation 'Peace for the Gallilee', turns into a long and bloody war, all while Syria still occupies Lebanon, PLO & [Iran's & Syria's backed] Hezbollah causes many deaths among all sides.
The main base of Arafat's terrorists infrastructure. Yasser Arafat declares two "intifadas" (1987 & 2000), bloody violence on Israel's unarmed men, women and children, targeting the most crwoded places, in a clear attempt to cause as many civilinas deaths' as possible = Genocide bombings.
"Palestinian" mainstream and official media in demonizing Jews, in glorifying mass murder and "martyrdom" is full force, the death cult of camps for children to be 'human bombs' is greased by Saudi Arab oil with large payments for every parent that sends its kid to die via killing many innocent Israelis.
In order to create public sympathy, the Arab Muslim "Palestinians" make sure the kids are pushed on the front lines, often with "stones", to cover for adult terrorists with machine guns.
The tactics of using kids as human shields by "Palestinian" terrorists proved to be effected, as the global media rarely puts the blame on the Arab adults and leaders and not on Israel trying to defend, to survive. Israel complies with UN's resolution for Israel to leave Lebanon and for the Hezbollah's army to dissolve, Israel exists but the Hezbollah remains armed, moreover they portray Israel's . In 2000, the most powerful Christian leader, the Pope has issues the Church's formal apology to the Jews of the 2,000 years of constant persecution and bloodshed. September 11, 2001, the Islamic attack that butchered 3,000 innocent people in the United States of America, reinforced the recognition of radical Islam's war on the west, their 'plan' for a global repressive Islamic empire (recognized even by left wingers such as Barack Obama in 2007). So was the continuous Islamic massacres, including the one in Bali 2002 on Australian youths. 2005, Israel gives a big gift for Arab "Palestinians", sacrificing a huge steak, giving away of it's vital borderline own land, the Gaza strip.
The Arab "Palestinians" react very traditionally, the more you give them the more they get radicalized, they vote -- overwhelmingly -- for the Islamic Jihad party of Hamas, who does not "recognize" Israel, vouch for it's destruction and its members promise to "drink Jews' blood". The Hamas-tan Islamic Apartheid creates more Islamization, persecuting Christians, often threatening individuals to "change" their faith, practice. "Palestinians" via Hamas express more publicly their "plan" of Islamic world repressive domination [Caliphate]. The civil war between Hamas & Fatah (who's still has under its wings the terror group 'Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade', but Hamas is still more on the extreme with it's genocide aims), intensifies in 2006 - 2007 2006 Iran & Syria decide to send it's Hezbollah Islamic army to attack Israel, a war breaks out, Israel hits Hezbollah which uses 'Palestinian' tactics of human shields to cause as many Arab kids' deaths possible, in order to create a media shift in the Arab world towards more Anti-Israelism. In November 2007, there's an attempt by US' president George W. Bush to break a peace agreement between Israel and the Arab "Palestinians", Fatah is present, Hamas denounces.
The agreement is still based mainly on that first UN's resolution of 1948, a two states solution, which the Arabs ILLEGALLY have rejected then until now.
Not only are they exploiting again Israel's kindness and its urge to give for any chance for peace, but these Arabs even make the Jewish eternal capital Jerusalem an issue for Muslims, as if this was 'always an Islamic thing'. As it stands now, the main real issue Israel still struggles with, is survival against the twin diabolical intolerance that motivated - motivates Arab Muslims, the Arab racism & Islamic Jihad. the Arab racism and Arabization also claims millions of victims in Africa, including Sudan, Mauritania, Chad and more, so are all non Arab minorities in the middle east paying the price of persecution, then the Islamic Jihad´s war on the world is the cancer everywhere on the globe, main victims are: Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and other non Muslims or 'infidels', or 'kuffars'. Worth mentioning that Israel is by in large a secular State, most of its very religious Jews, the Ultra Orthodox do NOT serve in the Israeli Army out of principles.
The first to try to negotiate a peace treaty with the Arabs was the Ultra Orthodox Jew, Professor Dahan, it was prior to the reestablishment of Israel, he was murdered.
Still, this community's children are as much a target by radical Muslims terrorists. Too late but better late than never, Arab 'moderates' start to realize that a nuclear Islamic Republic of Iran is a danger to all.
