“Each drop of blood that was spilled in Jerusalem is pure blood as long as it’s for the sake of Allah. Every shahid (martyr) will be in heaven and every wounded person will be rewarded, by Allah’s will,” said the PA leader during the peak of the 2015 wave of terror throughout Israel.
The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it’s very simple.
Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring Palestinian state. And most Palestinians do not want Israel to exist. As Dennis Prager explains, this is really all you need to know.
In 5 minutes, understand how Israel was founded, and how, since that auspicious day in 1948, its neighbors have tried to destroy it, again and again.
Who will rescue the Christians in the Middle East from the genocide that is occurring every day? America and Europe doesn’t the courage or the will to do so. At least not now.
Who does that leave? It leaves Israel alone.
Since America Won’t Stop Christian Genocide, Israel Should – “But all Arab indoctrination—no matter the sect—instills animus for Jews and the state of Israel. Anyone who claims that the Arab world—Muslim and Christian—is not pathologically anti-Semitic is delusional. This is the elephant in the room in the Arab Christian subculture; the secret sin no one wants to bring to the light.
“By no means am I saying every single Middle Eastern Christian is anti-Semitic, but it is there in the air of the culture across the Arab world. It is this unspoken, almost unconscious feeling that prevents Iraqi Christians and other Arab Christians in the Middle East from seeking help from Israel. It is a blight upon the people of my heritage—Middle Eastern Christians who have suffered long under the rule of Islam.
“An example of this pathological anti-Semitism can be seen in this 2011 Pew Research Center study. When asked concerning 9/11, a majority of Arab Muslims, as high as 75 percent in Egypt and 73 percent in Turkey, said they did not believe that al-Qaeda attacked the United States on 9/11. Most held conspiracy theories about Israel being secretly behind, or somehow complicit in, the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Former Egyptian president and Muslim Brotherhood member Mohamad Morsi traded in these conspiracy theories as well.
“Israel is the last hope for Arab Christians; it’s as simple as that. America is not leading on the refugee issue, especially for Iraqi Christians. Yet helping them, doing good to the Christians in the Arab world, would require Israel overcoming her neighbors’ anti-Semitism, even of those Christians who will not ask for help because of their prejudices.”
Elliot Abrams, during an AEI panel on the Sykes-Picot Agreement, made the most courageous statements I have heard from anyone regarding the situation:
Most of the Christian communities are dying, will never be restored….nobody has that feeling toward Christian minorities in Iraq [speaking of the desire to save the communities]…we don’t even take Christian refugees…I am really struck by the hostility to the notion that anything should be done for the Christian communities of the Middle East…is anybody being persecuted more than the Iraqi Christians? Does anybody have a more well-founded fear [of persecution]? They can’t even go to U.N refugee camps safely. And we are doing nothing about that. [Regarding the conundrum of liquidating Christianity from the area] It would be like saying, in 1940, surely a 1000 years of Jewish history in Germany, and Poland, and Hungary, we don’t want to kill it by taking those people as refugees. They died. The Christians will die, or many of them will die. So I think we don’t have the right to say, ‘Stay there and maintain your churches,’ when they’re being killed.
Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. The United States alliance with Israel has been on shaky ground lately. We must support them.
Israel will defend itself mightily against all those who seek to destroy us.

It’s been seven decades since the 1948 Arab-Israeli, and yet there are still an estimated 4 million Palestinian refugees…and zero Jewish refugees. With so many nearby Arab allies of the Palestinians, how did this happen? What does it say about Israel? What does it say about its Arab neighbors? Dumisani Washington, Diversity Outreach Coordinator for Christians United for Israel, explains.

Do the facts, rules and logic matter some days?
Of course, the answer is no. The don’t matter to some and sense they aren’t governed well themselves, they suggest things that no basis in reality.
“There are striking contrasts between how Israel boycotts are treated by rules and results-based institutions, like legislatures, courts, and pension fund managers, and institutions ruled by emotion that have no oversight, like academic organizations, student governments, the European Commission, or the NGO sector. By exempting themselves from rules, and in some cases from the political process as a whole, the latter are often uniquely in synch with Israel boycotters, and the pro-Palestinian movement, which put the Palestinian cause above examination and exempt it from criticism.” Source: Healthy Institutions Don’t Boycott Israel
