1960--Lybia-Jews were prohibited from aquiring new possesions. They no longer could vote, hold public offic serve in the army or police force.
1961--Syria-Jews leaving Syria were forced to give their possesions to the Syrian state and pay departure expenses.
1967-Syria-Muslim principles were placed in all Jewish schools.
This went on until 1980, when Jews in Iran had difficulties aquirring passports.
Palestinians want their country, I understand, I want my own house, but if I hated my neighbours the way hate theirs, I would probably be harrassed until i had letf the community or had done something very bad and been arrested and removed from my neighborhood.
Syrians, through their Text Books given to the school children is a very bad thing, and someone in their neighborhood needs a talking to. Big Time.
With the responsibility of taking on statehood, I believe, Palestinians owe some apologies around the neighborhood. Many, most to Israel. Number one, Israel will never 'go away', so why not aknowledge the fact that the state of Israel does exist.
Your right of return law which you want so badly ,is rediculous, as first of all, the land does not, and never has belonged to you. For what good reason should a 'state' of Palestine have right of return laws? maybe just to drown the Israelis in Arab blood?
The text books your children read are disgraceful. You talk of being debased, disgraced, belittled. Have you palestinian parents ever gotten a look at your childrens textbooks... here is some of what is in the old ones, and a bit of what is in the new ones from 1993.
Over and again it is stated: Palestinian text books, school books for children, contain no anti-semetic language in them. That claim is is rediculous. Quoting this exact passage from a Palstinian school book,
'It is a holy duty to destroy the Jewish peoples because Jews, as children of Satan, rebel agaist God, conspire against humanity and Islam.' children are also encouraged to become suicide bombers- If the above statement is not ant-semetic, what is? And this does not just say Israelis should be destroyed. It says ALL Jews, everywhere.
1993, new text books, claim there is no anti-semetism in these new school books. These books also claim: The State of ISRAEL has no right to exist. Israel is obsessed by a demon. The Jews are traitors. They are greedy and materialistic. Jews are heartless and hard. They conspire against God and all humanity'....... no anti semetism there !
2000, Palestinian school books reflect a preparation for holy war against Israel and will glorify martyrdom and suicide operations.
Odd, I see a wee anti semetic claim in these books too. hardly do I believe I could be the only one.
And still it continues'''' with these facts as well as the freshness of the wounds, and I am not refering to,nor do I mention the holocaust as the reason, one wonders how does a person sit and think realistically, Israel is not special in it's nature, needs no security boundries, or military quards, patroling night and day, on ever ready military defense, trained to perfetion and can and must give up the West bank, the most strategically sensitive area in the nation. With no looking back, give, chop a piece of the heart of your nations capital, Jerusalem and give it away to a sworn enemy.
Kind David, over three thousand years ago claimed Jerusalem as the capital of the Nation of Israel, all of it, united.
What right, clams, or culture binds these palestinians to any of Jerusalem,or for that matter parts of the nation of Israel.
Archeologists, Jewish and non want to explore the ground under Soloman's temple. The palestinaian authorities will not allow it.I wonder why, just from my own curiosity. It mght be, under the temple in the dirt, there just might be, the one sliver of wood, or stone, or gold, that proves, yes , that Soloman's temple is sacred, holy ground. We know it. Most probably they do know in their heart, this land, this Israel, this Jerusalem was given, and promished to the Jewish people by God many thousands of years ago. Yes, even before zionism was a word.
Before there ever was a thought of the Roman use of the Latin Palestina to wipe the name of jews, and Israel off of the map.
A true people of a distinct land have a distinct lanquage, customs, culture, alphabet, holidays. A blending and binding to the land which belongs to them.
Palestinians, from Palestine, they say. How long has palestine been an issue for the people of this land?,only since the 1967 war. Their lanquage arabic, (as they come from Jordan and souther Syria, Customs: same as other arab countries, not distinct, not their 'own'.
Culture To learn in school, Israel does not exist, and kill Jews for some glory, martydom or virins in the sky.
Does The Koran mention Jerusalem once, even ONE time? no.
For Jews, Jerusalem is adored as a beloved bride. It has alwys been thus, and forever it will be.
With a neighbor that hates you , to the point that it is in text books year after year, taught known, and spoken about always, how can one live next to this neighbor Why is their a question on the existance of a country that has a calender with almost six thousand years on it. What is the problem. Almost like a psychotic in reverse. A psychotic sees things which very often are not there. and here is a people who see something is there and does not aknowledge its existance... Remarkable, and almost funny,if it were not so terribley sad and incredibly dangerous.
