Nationhood and Jerusalem

  1. Israel became a nation in 1312 BC, two thousand years before the rise of Islam.

  2. 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.

  3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BC 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.

  4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 BC lasted no more than 22 years.

  5. Around 132-135 AD there was large scale slaughter of the Jews that remained in Israel, and Jerusalem was destroyed. It was later rebuilt and re-named "Aelia Capitolina", and Jews were forbidden to go to Jerusalem. The leader of this takeover then renamed it "Syria Palestina" in order to undo any connection with the Jews, Israel, and Jerusalem - but there is no record of a so-called Palestinian people.

  6. 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.

  7. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.

  8. King David founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.

  9. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with their backs toward Jerusalem.


Land Title
  1. The Bible records that God determines where people groups should live and that he gave the land of Canaan to the people of Israel on a permanent basis:

    ”From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live” (Acts 17:26).

    ”The whole land of Canaan, where you are now an alien, I will give as an EVERLASTING POSSESSION to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God." (Gen 17:8).

    "God Almighty appeared to me at in the land of Canaan, and there he blessed me and said to me, 'I am going to make you fruitful and will increase your numbers. I will make you a community of peoples, and I will give this land as an EVERLASTING POSSESSION TO YOUR DESCENDANTS AFTER YOU” (Gen 48: 3-4).

  2. If you were to take all the Arab lands and put Israel into that same land mass and then divide it into 1,000 equal parts, then the Arabs already have 998.5 parts and Israel only has 1.5 parts, or .0015 of the land.

  3. About 80% of the Arabs living in the Palestine region came from different parts of the former Ottoman Empire, to work for the Jews who had legitimately purchased the land with their own money.

  4. The price the Jews paid for the land in those days was exorbitant. In 1944 the Jews were paying between $1,000 and $1,100 per acre in "Palestine". In that same year, rich black soil in mid-Western America was selling for about $110 per acre.

  5. As the Jews developed the land Arabs continued to move from different parts of the Ottoman Empire in search of a better life. Many of today's "Palestinians" are recent descendants of those Arabs who left the land of their own brothers in search of work.


Arab and Jewish Refugees
  1. 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.

  2. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.


Arab - Israeli Conflicts
  1. The Arabs are represented by eight separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel defended itself each time and won.

  2. Arafat masterminded many hijackings. Even four in one day in the 1970's. He extorted the largest ransom ever from Lufthansa ($5,000,000). He has hijacked 40 civilian aircraft, 5 passenger ships, caused harm in 30 embassies, diplomatic missions, or schools. He has never apologised or renounced these actions.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.


The United Nations and Israel
  1. The U.N. voted in the State of Israel in 1948.

  2. Since then of the 175 U.N. Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel.

  3. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel.

  4. The U.N. was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians.

  5. The U.N. was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives.

  6. The U.N. was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.

  7. Israel is the only member of the U.N. that is not permitted membership to the security council

  8. Israel has never been permitted membership of the International Red Cross.
