LIES AND BIASES CONCERNING ISRAEL
"Pray for shalom in Jerusalem. May those who love you prosper ." Psalm 122:6
The Arabs need the land.
18 Arab countries - 5.25 million square miles
1 State of Israel - 800 square miles
Ratio - 640:1
To put this in other terms, this is like the Arabs owning 8.9 Alaskas and the Jews
owning .65% of New Jersey!
They need the land?
The Jews have no right to the land of Israel
A brief Internet search will reveal the existance of the Hebrew people within the current borders of Israel for around 3500 years. A simular search will reveal there was not a group of people called Palestinians before the rebirth of Israel in 1948. In the words of one poitical leader, "The question must be asked that if the Jews do not have a right to live in Israel, do they have a right to live anywhere at all."
TERM "West Bank"
Consider that calling a city like Ramallah the "West Bank" is simular to someone in the U.S calling Las Vegas the "West Bank" of the Mississippi. In relation to the size of modern day Israel, calling this area the "West Bank is a simply absurd political statement. The reality is that this is the Biblical heartland of Israel with history and legal deeds going back to Genesis 12. This land is Biblical Judea and Samaria promised to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their family called Israel. Eph 2:11-12
The term settlements is used strictly for political reasons. This term is used for areas of Israel that are in political dispute. Using this term brings forth images of a few people living in tents on a hillside. These towns and cities may indead be on hillsides, but they are not made up of just a few people. The "Settlement" of Ariel has over 17,000 residents, while the "Settlement" of Itamar was reported to be just over 1000 in 2009. These are just a couple of examples. I would say they have "Settled" this land which has a Biblical deed pretty well!
The "Settlers" are standing in the way of the
The ones standing in the way of "Peace" are those who strap bombs to their bodies and blow up innocent people, those who attack civilians with knives or run them down with cars.
Truth is, the people living in Judea and Samaria are holding a covenant land deeded to Israel by The Almighty Himself. No one has a right to give away something which is not theirs to give away in the first place.The only thing these people are standing in the way of is the distruction of The Land. Don't believe it? Just look at what happened to Gush Katif.
