13 Things About Israel

Posted by The Mindset on May 13, 2011

A reader “sayeed” left this angry comment on my post Islam in Pictures 2

When the world is killing you ,and you enter someone’s house.He gives you shelter , he gives you food and later on you overpower them, kill them, capture them,rape them,and forcefully capture their land then what will be the outcome?

Looks like he is really angry with da Joooooooooozzz…..

So “sayeed” here are 13 facts about Israel which may may clear most of your doubts(from Planck’

1. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.

2. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 B.C.E. the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.

3. Arabs have only had control of Israel twice – from 634 until the Crusader invasion in June 1099, and from 1292 until the year 1517 when they were dispelled by the Turks in their conquest.

4. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital. Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.

5. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran. There are vague references to Jerusalem in the Hadiths – stories about Mohammed – that he stopped his night journey (which the Koran explains took place in a dream!) at the “farther mosque” (or “distant place”). Muslims explain that this means “at the edge of the Temple mount”, although no direct reference to Jerusalem or the Temple Mount is made.

6. King David established the city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.

7. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Some Muslims (i.e. those between Israel and Saudi Arabia) pray with their backs toward Jerusalem.

8. In 1948 the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty eight percent left without ever seeing an Israeli soldier.

9. Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms. They lost much more in possessions than the Arabs who fled from Israel.

10. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be the same.

11. Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own peoples’ lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey.

12. The PLO’s Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them with weapons.

13. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.

    All excellent points.
    In fact, in the Muslim texts it says that prophet muhammad first had muslims pray toward Jerusalem “the Jewish holy land”, in order to appease the Jews hoping that they would convert to Islam. So even prophet muhammad recognized Jerusalem as the rightful holy land of the Jews.

    Muslims in the USA are spreading lies about Israel at Universities.

    Muslims have no shame.

        Correct, they didnt. Then P.Muhammad had a “revelation” that now everyone should pray toward Mecca at a place formerly used by stone worshipers. The black stone was actually first used by stone worshipers, and Mecca was a pagan temple, AND that the crescent moon and star that is the symbol of Islam today, was actually a pagan symbol by moon god worshipers that P.MO. also borrowed for Islam. But try to point out to a Muslim and they will practically lose consciousness from anger.

        • Hahhahhah 🙂
          Rightly said..
          As far as I know there were 3 Gods al-mannat. al-Lat and their father Al-Lah
          And with Allahon his sleeves Mo was able to do anything ! funny
