Jews have a very long history of suffering -- from the invasion of the Philistines (Hebrew: פְּלִשְׁ
תִּים, transliteration: p'lishtim) to the Babylonian invasion (586-539 BCE).
Jews also suffered under the Persian invasion (539-332 BCE) and the Roman invasion (64 BC), and suffered mistreatment as well as exile from Judaea. Jews suffered condemnation and persecution in Europe for two millennia -- the Spanish Inquisition, pogroms and special ownership laws, both in Europe and in Muslim countries (Dhimmi Laws*). Not to mention ongoing and fluctuating waves of anti-Semitism around the world. Unlike Christians and Muslims -- and simply by reading history books -- it is well known that Jews as a whole do not generally have a past history of violence towards others, unless it is in self-defence. It is also well known that Jews have not had an army with which to defend themselves ever since the days of Kings Saul (1079 - 1007 BC), King David (1040–970 BC) and King Solomon (1011 BCE - 931 BCE). Due to all of the persecution and suffering it is imperative for Jews to have their own country and military, and that is why Israel must exist. Unfortunately, Israel is located in the heart of the Islamic world -- A very "inconvenient" location for radical Islam.
From the very beginning of the creation of the state of Israel, Israelis and their new military were accused of being forceful in their actions when entering their newly found state in 1948. Arabs were killed, and may have forcefully been expelled, or they may have fled. If it is true, there is nothing new or unusual about that. This behaviour from the part of new Israelis (Likud, Irgun and Stern Group) is perceived by some as terrorism. However, the members of those organisations were angered by fluctuating mistreatment Jews had endured for millennia, both in Europe and in Arab countries. Therefore, it is understandable why they felt the need to assert themselves as a strong and wilful nation -- not to be reckoned with any longer. Are anti-Israel enthusiasts capable of seeing early Israeli actions as "freedom fighting" after excessive persecution by Christians and Muslims alike, or are they only capable of applying this term to the actions of Hamas?
It is equally important to note that Arab countries encouraged the departure of those who lived in British Mandate Palestine whilst they waged war on Israel (1948 Arab-Israeli War*). Certain they would win, they assumed it would only be for a short period of time before they could return to their homes. The situation was not so, Israel won, and Muslims found themselves in the awkward situation of being refugees -- A status in which they find themselves to date. Please see: A Palestinian Myth http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Had they wilfully agreed to the UN partition of Transjordan they would have had a home by now. Daniel Pipes wrote about this issue in an article entitled 'Is Jordan Palestine?'* The remaining Arabs who resisted the partition are those who cry out for a home today. If Israelis lived in Gaza, by now it would have looked like South Beach, Florida, as Tel Aviv does.
Many countries have expelled others in order to create a new country. As quoted by 'Why People Should Not Support "Palestine"': "Loss of land, humiliation at being militarily defeated - Others have suffered these and moved on to create a new nation and opportunities for themselves." To paraphrase, Israel's existence continues to remind the Arabs that they have lost the war. "Especially when "Palestine" is not Muslim land."
Examples: "The Germans were thrown out of East Prussia in Europe, 1945. Austria was given independence, Czechoslovakia regained independence and East Germany was given to Poland. The nationalist Chinese fled to Taiwan in 1949. The Germans and Taiwanese had coped with military defeat and loss of land. They haven't warred with their neighbours nor have they carried out attacks against them." Why can't Arabs cope? Hindus in East Pakistan*, suffered much worse treatment from Muslims. It is interesting to note that Muslims will never admit to these atrocities, and prefer focusing only on Israel's so-called wrong-doings. Are Germans, Taiwanese and Hindus better equipped to deal with adversity and defeat than Arabs?
During Operation Cast Lead, Israel may have committed war crimes against the people of Gaza. We have seen the flawed outcome of the Goldstone "Report."* Certainly the situation would never have come to this if Hamas had not launched rocket attacks into south Israel almost daily for a period of 8 long years, and then used their own people as human shields*. Cowardly as they are, Hamas was hiding amongst innocent civilians to purposely make it extremely difficult to attain them without taking the lives of innocent civilians. Anyone with common sense can see that this was a premeditated trap into which the IDF fell. Israel may have to pay for those accusations. Winston Churchill bombarded cities in Germany and took the lives of thousands of innocent women and children, but he is regarded as a hero*.
It was only 64-70 years ago when Germany was enslaving and sending people to gas chambers and crematoria -- Killing innocent people such as Jews, Catholics, gypsies, homosexuals, and the mentally impaired, but look at Germany today -- A well respected nation with a past many people have already forgiven or even forgotten. No group of people, not even Jews, are looking to destroy Germany, and this is the difference between Jews and Muslims.
Muslims do not want peace and they do not want to share the land. What they really want is to have it all and exile Jews from Israel once again, or murder them. The Islamic holy struggle (Jihad) is an indoctrination which demands of Islam to become the leading religion of the world, through conversion (wilful or forced) or subsequent fate. Reading the Hamas Charter* helps clarify what is their course of action.
There is a reason why a serge of Islamic migration to every country on the globe has taken place over the last two decades, and it is not simply to find a better life elsewhere. There is a clearly delineated plan to conquer the world through conversion and force. Islam being a "religion of peace" is a mockery. This is also the real reason why Gazans are not being helped by other Islamic countries. No Islamic country has sent in their military troops to fight against Israel, because they prefer using Gazans as leverage for global sympathy.
Hamas will continue to launch rockets until Israel breaks down and attacks again. As any other military, the IDF may once again use "unacceptable" tactics such as white phosphorus. Islam will then cry out to the UN (1947 - the very same organisation with a majority vote in favour of the state of Israel) and the "international community," accusing Israel of being the big bad wolf. Some people may, once again, buy into this propaganda, whilst others will never — those who see the bigger picture and understand the position in which Israelis find themselves. Though Israel has tried to create a sense of peace by pulling out of Gaza in 2005, whilst destroying Gush Katif -- an action disapproved of and regretted by many -- it was all done in vain. Hamas' cruelty both towards Gazans and towards the innocent lives of south Israel is evident.
It would be interesting to find out if Israelis are even aware of the Islamic plan of global domination? If not, they ought to listen to Brigitte Gabriel, Nonie Darwish, Pat Condell, Geert Wilders, Wafa Sultan, Walid Shoabat, Daniel Pipes, and many others who have repeatedly warned us all about the ultimate goal of Islamic domination. What if the Arabs were in charge in Israel? How would Muslims treat Jews? Read the Hamas Charter and discover the ultimate goal.
*Dhimmi (Arabic: ذمي [
ˈðɪmːiː]), (collectively أهل الذمة ahl al-dhimmah, "the people of the dhimma or people of the contract") is a non-Muslim subject of a state governed in accordance with sharia law. The dhimma is a theoretical contract based on a widely held Islamic doctrine granting special status to Jewish, Christian, and other non-Muslim subjects. Dhimma provides rights of residence in return for taxes. Dhimmi have fewer legal and social rights than Muslims, but more rights than other non-Muslims. They are excluded from the specifically Muslim duties, and otherwise equal under the laws of property, contract and obligation.
Dhimmi status was originally afforded to non-Muslims who were People of the Book (i.e. Jews and Christians
), and later came to include Zoroastrians, Mandeans , Hindus and Buddhists. Eventually, the largest school of Islamic legal thought applied this term to all non-Muslims living in Islamic lands outside the sacred area surrounding Mecca, Saudi Arabia. This status therefore applied to millions of people living from Spain and Morocco on the Atlantic Ocean to Indonesia in the Pacific, and from the 7th century CE until modern times. : http://en. wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhimmi
*East Pakistan - HINDUS IN EAST PAKISTAN WERE SPECIAL TARGET OF PAKISTANI ARMY In the summary of his report dated November 1, 1971 Senator Edward Kennedy writes (6): 'Field reports to the U.S. Government, countless eye-witness journalistic accounts, reports of International agencies such as World Bank and additional information available to the subcommittee document the reign of terror which grips East Bengal (East Pakistan). HARDEST HIT HAVE BEEN MEMBERS OF THE HINDU COMMUNITY WHO HAVE BEEN ROBBED OF THEIR LANDS AND SHOPS, SYSTEMATICALLY SLAUGHTERED, AND IN SOME PLACES, PAINTED WITH YELLOW PATCHES MARKED "H". All of this has been officially sanctioned, ordered and implemented under martial law from Islam. http://bd71. Blangladesh 1971: blogspot.com/2008/05/1971-
*1948 Arab–Israeli War, known by Israelis as the War of Independence (Hebrew: מלחמת העצמאות, Milhemet HaAtzma'ut) or War of Liberation (Hebrew: מלחמת השחרור, Milhemet HaShihrur) and by the Arabs as the Catastrophe (Arabic: النكب
ة, al-Nakba), was the first in a series of wars fought between the newly declared State of Israel and its Arab neighbours in the long-running Arab-Israeli conflict.
The war commenced upon the termination of the British Mandate of Palestine in mid-May 1948 following a previous phase of civil war in 1947–1948. After the Arab rejection of the 1947 United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine (UN General Assembly Resolution 181) that would have created an Arab state and a Jewish state side by side, five Arab states invaded the territory of the former British Mandate of Palestine.
Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria attacked the state of Israel, leading to fighting mostly on the former territory of the British Mandate and for a short time also on the Sinai Peninsula and southern Lebanon. The war concluded with the 1949 Armistice Agreements, but it did not mark the end of the Arab-Israeli conflict. : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
*Is Jordan Palestine? - "If King Husayn's declaration that "there should be the separation of the West Bank from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan" is long-lasting, it presents all parties to the Arab-Israeli conflict with opportunities and dangers. The Palestine Liberation Organization must make the most of its opportunity or fall by the way. Syrians and other Arabs must revamp their strategies. So too, Israelis and American seeking an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip must engage in some major rethinking; they cannot keep pretending that nothing has changed."

*Human Sheilds - Hamas’s Human Shields (Updated January 22, 2009) While the world is all too quick to blame Israel for the humanitarian situation and loss of civilian lives in the Gaza Strip operation, the real fault of the Gazans' humanitarian crisis lies with their own government - Hamas. Palestinian terrorists have historically used civilians to shield them from Israeli military retaliation to attacks, knowing that Israel goes to great lengths to prevent civilian casualties. The current Israeli defensive against Hamas in Gaza has proven no different. Since the Israeli ground operation started on Saturday, January 3, 2009, Hamas gunmen have hidden among the densely populated civilian buildings in the center of Gaza city. Hamas operatives have been seen hiding in maternity wards at civilian hospitals, sometimes even dressing as nurses and orderlies in order to escape Israeli detection. Hamas has also strategically planted the openings to weapons smuggling tunnels in houses around the Rafah border region, fully including the Gazans in terrorist activities.
*Goldstone Report - The first thing the Goldstone report failed to understand, as you can see from the above pictures, is the most basic of concepts: there are no winners in war. Above are pictures of Israel and Gaza, pictures taken before, during and after the war. No one won the war. There was tremendous suffering on all sides - before, during and after the war. The Goldstone report failed, not only because it failed to understand this basic fact, but also because it ignored so much of what came before. Palestinian groups, including Hamas, have been responsible for launching more than 10,000 rockets and mortars at Israeli cities. In November, 2008 alone, over 120 rockets and mortars were fired at Israeli cities, injuring hundreds of people. One woman, a doctor who has treated Israeli and Palestinian patients equally and without discrimmination was called to testify before the Goldstone mission. She spoke of her injuries, after being seriously injured during a missile attack. She was days before her 8th operation to repair the damage.

*Winston Churchill -- Full name Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill. AKA 'Winnie'. Country: Great Britain. Cause: Defeat of European fascism in the Second World War.Background: As Germany rises from the deprivations of the First World War and the Great Depression, the rest of the world tries to ignore the threat posed by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party. But when Hitler launches his invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939 the world finally realises that the Germans will not be appeased. Two days later Britain and France declare war on Germany.
*Hamas Charter - Hamas Principles:The principles of the Hamas are stated in their Covenant or Charter, given in full below. Following are highlights."Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it." (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory). "The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up." "There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors." "After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying." The charter is a rather classical Islamist document, applied to the local issues. It declares that Jihad (in the sense of armed battle) is the only solution. It cites the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a ludicrous anti-Semitic forgery. The "Zionists" and the freemasons and others are blamed for what Hamas and radical Islamists see as the major calamities of the world, especially the French Revolution.
