1948 - 2018: A 70 Year Miracle


    From the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem until Israel gained its independence once more, 1878 years elapsed. Israel’s independence was the result of Jewish willingness to fight for the right to live as a free people in their own land, no longer subject to  persecution which both Muslims and Christians inflicted on the Jewish minorities in their midst.

     On November 29, 1947, the United Nations voted to recognize a Jewish state in a small part of Israel along the Mediterranean coast and in the South called the Negev. The Jewish community then living in Israel accepted the partition of their land, which gave the Arabs two thirds and the Jews only one third of Jewish territory. All the land of Israel on the east bank of the Jordan River had already been separated and handed to a tribe of Bedouins by the British occupiers. This meant that the Arabs had gained far more than the Israelis. Yet, the Muslims rejected the vote of the United Nations and declared war on the Jews. The Muslim delegates to the United Nations shouted: “Their blood Will flow like rivers” and the delegate from Iraq screamed: “we will smash the Jews and obliterate every place the Jews seek shelter.” With that, the Arab states attacked the small Jewish community, believing that they should have no trouble slaughtering every one of the 800,000 Jews then living there. The whole world knew, of course, that Jews can’t fight and walk into their enemy’s gas ovens without resistance. Only this time the Arabs made a mistake. With few weapons and enormous courage, the Jews fought back and survived the Muslim killers in 1948 and again in 1949.

     In 1956 and again in 1967, the Arabs tried once more to slaughter every man, woman, and child in Israel. In 1967, the Egyptian dictator Nasser had accumulated large amounts of weapons from the Soviet Union (Russia), including a fleet of airplanes, tanks, guns, and ammunition, with which Nasser threatened to invade and bring about another Holocaust. Advised by Nazi fugitives from Europe, the Egyptians in the south and the Syrians in the north of Israel, aided by the Jordanians with British help in the East, assaulted Israel. To the amazement of the killers and the disappointment of the world, Israelis defeated all three aggressors and held on to the land needed to prevent further such invasions in the future. Yet in 1973, the surrounding Arab states once more attacked Israel on Yom Kippur, hoping that the Jews would be so preoccupied on the holiest day of their year that they could not fight back. Defeated once more, Egypt and Jordan signed peace treaties with Israel.

     Yet, 70 years later, most Arabs, and particularly those living in Israel, still want to feed on Jewish blood and still hope to slaughter every man, woman, or child believing in Judaism. Pretending that Israel somehow occupies so-called Arab land, the haters follow Hitler’s advice, who said repeatedly that a lie told over and over again is finally accepted as the truth. And so American newspapers keep talking about occupied Arab land when in fact the Arabs are occupying Jewish land. The truth is that not a single Arab nor a single Jew would have been wounded or killed had Muslim Arabs accepted the vote of the United Nations in 1947 instead of attacking and murdering and killing. Every Arab ever wounded or killed by an Israeli bullet is the responsibility of the Arabs themselves.

     The United Nations, controlled by the Arabs and their friends, spend all their time denouncing Israel and Jews. In the United States, most major American university campuses engage in incessant anti-Jewish hate orgies, instigated mostly by Muslim students from foreign countries who spread hatred throughout the United States.

     Despite all this, Israel is today a mighty military power with a winning economy and enormous technical innovations. In view of the Iranian threat, Saudi and other Arab states are unofficially relaxing their antagonism to Israel, even as the so-called Palestinians, who are definitely not the descendants of the ancient Philistines, continue to seek Israel’s destruction instead of contributing anything positive to the land they live in. Meanwhile, these so-called Philistines demand that the United States pay them billions of dollars every year so they can continue to live without working at the expense the American taxpayer, even as they declare their hatred of the United States

     Today, Israel Is stronger than ever, and with the help of “Shem  Yisborach” will remain a light  unto the nations  “Bimheyro veyomayinu.”

Shalom u’vracha.
