One year ago today  Palestinian 'Freedom fighters' entered the house of the Fogel family. They brutally slaughtered the family with there bare hands.

Udi Fogel, 36, Ruth Fogel, 35, and their children Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and three-month-old Hadas were stabbed to death by a Palestinian Terrorist.

There are no words to write there is nothing to be said. Here are some pictures of this horrific act. 
These are Israel's neighbors and 'Peace' Partners.

10 reasons you are lying if you call Israel an Apartheid State

This past week the circus came to town. It was the annual  Israel Apartheid festival throughout college campuses. This is a time when the Muslim brotherhood teams up with other liberal and anti Israel, antisemitic organizations to bash Israel.
Unfortunately, the Jewish voice is not heard. After speaking to a number of  Jewish students I have found several reasons for their silence.
Some Jews are afraid to speak up. Jewish students have been harassed and threatened when they decide not to keep silent. There have been accounts of those who have  spoken up to defend Israel, in the face of the violent propaganda parade whose roots are deeply planted in the age old antisemitism, and have been penalized for their opinion. Many have given in to this fear and now ignore the rabid anti Israel campaign that is going on right under their noses.

Here is one video that went viral. Hear the voice of the Muslim Brotherhood on US campuses. This woman is studying in the USA! 

The second group of Jewish students have tried to speak up and have been ousted and stripped of their freedom of speech. There have been cases of violence and antisemitism throughout University campuses around the World.

A single brave Jew not willing to stand silent when Palestinian propaganda slashes the name of Israel. He is chased out by the pro Palestine violent Mob (above)

The blood libel like anti Israel, Apartheid campaign is the creation of  the Muslim brotherhood together with anti Israel organizations who attempt to compare the Democratic Israel State to that of Apartheid South Africa .

Here is an article from Wikipedia on Apartheid in South Africa
"Apartheid was a system of racial segregation enforced by the National Party governments ofSouth Africa between 1948 and 1994, under which the rights of the majority non-white inhabitants of South Africa were curtailed and white supremacy and Afrikaner minority rule was maintained. Apartheid was developed after World War II by the Afrikaner-dominated National Party and Broederbond organizations and was practiced also in South West Africa, administered by South Africa under a League of Nations mandate (revoked in 1966), until it gained independence as Namibia in 1990.
Racial segregation in South Africa began in colonial times. However, apartheid as an official policy was introduced following the general election of 1948. New legislation classified inhabitants into four racial groups ("native", "white", "coloured", and "Asian"),[1] and residential areas were segregated, sometimes by means of forced removals. Non-white political representation was completely abolished in 1970, and starting in that year black people were deprived of their citizenship, legally becoming citizens of one of ten tribally based self-governing homelands called bantustans, four of which became nominally independent states. The government segregated education, medical care, beaches, and other public services, and provided black people with services inferior to those of white people.[2]"

        A Five Minute Documentary video on South African Apartheid
There were no Black Doctors, Lawyers or Professors in Apartheid South Africa. Blacks were not allowed to visit the malls or sit on the same benches as whites. The separation was based on skin color and it was without exception.
 Blacks were not allowed to live in white civilian areas and were kept uneducated. There certainly were no Black ministers or members of parliament during Apartheid rule! Blacks had no civil or social rights. There was no Black vote or representation. Even citizenship was held denied based on one's skin color.  From 1948   South African Governments  passed laws that legalized segregation and racism based on the color of ones skin.

Is Israel an Apartheid State? 

1. Israel never allowed for legislation of racist laws against any race or religion. It is illegal and grounds for arrest and punishment for anyone in Israel to discriminate against religions, races or even sex. That's right Islam! Here in Israel women receive equal rights!
  Here is a quote from the Israeli Declaration of Independence.
"The State of Israel ; it will foster the development of the country for the benefit of all inhabitants; it will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture; it will safeguard the Holy Places of all religions"By definition of Israeli laws,Israel is NOT an Apartheid State.

Here is an Iphone App that allows you to have the Israeli declaration of independence in the palm of your hand Israel Declaration of Independence

2. During Apartheid rule in SA no colored people received equal citizenship.  
In the State of Israel, 20.4% of Israel's population is Arab. These Arabs receive FULL civil and social rights with absolutely no difference between Jew and Arab. These rights include social security benefits, education, employment opportunities, Health Insurance and more. 
A school like the one below would be burnt in an Apartheid State. In Israel it exists in the heart of Jerusalem.
3.Those who are being discriminated against in an Apartheid State can not vote and have no right of Government representation. There were no Colored ministers or MP's in Apartheid SA. 

The situation in Israel?
In the 2009 elections there were 19 parties running for government, 4 of them were Arab parties. In the current Parliament of Israel there are 14 Arab parliament members.  There is even a Muslim Woman currently serving in the Israeli parliament. This is something you will not find in Islam regimes. Israeli Arabs have an equal voice when it comes to government elections.

4. In an Apartheid State, freedom of movement is non existent. Here are several pictures of Israel Arabs visiting the malls, riding the trains, walking freely and owning businesses, going to the beach and doing what every other citizen of Israel.

5. In an Apartheid State freedom of worship is not an option. Here in Israel there are hundreds of mosques in every city and you can hear them 5 times a day as the MUAZEEN calls to Muslims on a microphone. 

Here is a video of the President of Israel, Mr. Shimon Peres,  visiting a Mosque in Israel. Would that happen in an Apartheid State?
Truth be told, there is one place that does not allow for freedom of religion. It is the TEMPLE MOUNT! Jews are NOT allowed to pray or even mumble a blessing on the holiest site in Judaism. If a Jew is caught trying to pray or G-d forbid bow on the Temple Mount he is thrown out and not allowed back in.

6. In an Apartheid State the oppressed minority received no employment opportunities, University education or ability to serve in the Military. Here in Israel we have Arab Doctors, Soldiers and high ranking officers.

7. University education is not open to the oppressed is an Apartheid regime
In Hebrew University alone there are over 5000 Arab students. They have their own fraternity as well as belong to the mixed clubs at the University.

Arabic is one of Israel's official languages.
 8. In an Apartheid State is the oppressed people's language made official?
All signs in Israel include the Arab language.

9. Joint Arab-Jewish neighborhoods and community centers.

In every community in Israel there is a community center. These centers include cultural activities as well as a gym and a swimming pool. These centers serve both Arabs and Jews alike. I believe that is called

10. Instead of listening to a Zionist Brainwashed Jew, listen to an Israeli Arab.

"Israel Apartheid week" is another attempt by the Muslims and anti Israel organizations to demonize the State of Israel. Israel allows for more freedom and rights to all her citizens regardless of race, religion or sex than any other country in the Middle East. There are more Arab citizens, Doctors, Lawyers and government officials in Israel than there are Jews in all 22 Arab countries COMBINED!
So before you buy into Palestine propaganda and insult those who suffered in real Apartheid societies please get your facts straight.




***Special opportunity at the end of the post to say 'Thank you' to IDF soldiers***

 The Middle East is a mess. I don’t think there’s a person reading this blog who doesn’t understand the mess and the danger that looms over the Middle East. You might be inclined to think I was referring to the mess between Israel and what is commonly called Palestine. NOPE! The Middle East is much bigger than a country whose area is a small 8000 sq. miles. Some of you might not even know what the Middle East looks like. So here you go; a map of the Middle East. Try to find Israel

Israel is the small sliver like peach colored area between Egypt and Syria (might be a bit difficult to see)

Enough boring facts, let’s get to the chase. The whole world is screaming at Israel for occupying Palestine.  A treacherous story is told. The Zionists came into Palestine and with great cruelty ran the Palestinians out of their prosperous thousand year old State. If this were true I would probably be a pro Palestine supporter myself! How can one possible sit by and watch a nation that was stripped of their land by intruding forces?!  Unfortunately for them and very fortunate for the people of Israel the story of this great land is quite different.


Let’s go back to the beginning. No, not to Abraham or Moses, I am not going to bore you with bible facts , which would be too easy. Let’s go back to when Palestine was first founded. No, it was not an Arab country or State; in fact it had absolutely nothing to do with the Arabs.

In 539 B.C. the Persians conquered the Babylonians. The Jewish Temple, destroyed by the Babylonians, was rebuilt (516 BC). Under Persian rule the Jewish state enjoyed considerable autonomy. Alexander the Great of Macedon, conquered the area in 333 BC His successors, the Ptolemies and Seleucids, contested for control. The attempt of the Seleucid Antiochus IV (Antiochus Epiphanes) to impose Hellenism brought a Jewish revolt under the Maccabees, who set up a new Jewish state in 142 BC The state lasted until 63 BC, when Pompey conquered the region for Rome

When Jesus  was around, the Jewish state was ruled by puppet kings of the Romans, the Herods. When the Jews revolted in 66 AD, the Romans destroyed the Temple in Jerusalem (70 AD). The Bar Kokba revolt between 132 and 135 AD was also suppressed, Jericho and Bethlehem were destroyed, and the Jews were barred from Jerusalem. The Roman Emperor Hadrian determined to wipe out the identity of Israel-Judah-Judea. Therefore, he took the name Palastina and imposed it on all the Land of Israel. At the same time, he changed the name of Jerusalem to Aelia Capitolina. The Romans killed many Jews and sold many more in slavery. Some of those who survived left the devastated country (and established Jewish communities throughout the Middle East) but there was never a complete abandonment of the Land of Israel. 

In other words when the Roman empire conquered or occupied the Land of Israel from the JEWS they renamed it Palestine in an attempt to strip the Nation of Israel from their natural right to the land of Israel. 
It always makes me laugh that Arabs use the same name as the Romans with the same goal in mind; to try to strip the Jews of their natural right to the Land of Israel!

Let’s fast forward a bit to Islamic times. From 1517-1917 Turkey's Ottoman Empire controlled a vast Arab empire, a portion of which is today Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine.  During World War I (1914-1918), Turkey supported Germany.

When Germany was defeated, so were the Turks. In 1916 control of the southern portion of their Ottoman Empire was "mandated" to France and Britain under the
 Sykes-Picot Agreement, which divided the Arab region into zones of influence. Lebanon and Syria were assigned (mandated) to France... and "Palestine" (today's Jordan, Israel and "West Bank") was mandated to Great Britain.  

Because no other peoples had ever established a national homeland in "Palestine" since the Jews were exiled 2,000 years before, the British "looked favorably" upon the creation of a Jewish National Homeland throughout ALL of Palestine. The Jews had already begun mass immigration into Palestine in the 1880's in an effort to rid the land of swamps and malaria and prepare for the rebirth of Israel. This Jewish effort to revitalize the land attracted an equally large immigration of Arabs from neighboring areas who were drawn by employment opportunities and healthier living conditions. There was never any attempt to "rid" the area of what few indigenous Arabs there were or those Arab masses that immigrated into this area along with the Jews! 
This is what Palestine looked like during the British Mandate.

The Balfour declaration of 1917 clearly states the Establishment of a Jewish homeland in the area known as Palestine. There was no split between the West and East bank of the Jordan River and the Jewish State was to be established on what was known as British Palestine, all of it.

Although Britain promised a Jewish homeland throughout the area known as Palestine His Majesty betrayed those promises in 1922.

In September 1922 the Council of the League of Nations recognized Transjordan as a state under the British Mandate and Transjordan memorandum excluded the territories east of the River Jordan from all of the provisions of the mandate dealing with Jewish settlement.  The country remained under British supervision until 1946.
What was promised to be the Jewish homeland of over 40,000 sq miles was now only 8,000 sq ml. This deceitful betrayal of the British Mandate towards the Jews faced absolutely no consequence. There was no Jewish uprising against the British, no terrorist attacks or murders. The Jews were happy with the 8000 sq. ml. homeland that was now promised to them.
From 1946 the State known as Jordan occupied what was 85% of British Mandate Palestine. The West side of the Jordan River was left for the Jewish homeland. 

Things could have ended there and we all could have lived happily ever after. However the Muslim population was not comfortable with Jews in the area.
Over the next 20 years Arabs murdered raped and violently terrorized Jewish communities in the area of British Palestine. The most famous of the massacres took place in the City of Hebron. 67 Jews viscously murdered by Arab rioters. The murders took place with the help of axes, rocks and knives. The Jewish population of Hebron was violently liquidated for the holy city of Hebron. Several Women were raped by Muslim rioters and others beheaded.

On November 29th, 1947 the General assembly of the UN adopted a plan to Partition the 15% of what was left of Palestine in order to create a SECOND Arab State in Palestine alongside a small Jewish one.

The UN’s second partition of Palestine left the Jewish homeland with a mini State alongside an Arab Jordan and a second Arab State on the Eastern side of the Jordan River.
This Partition plan was a terrible slap in the face to the Zionist movement. The Jewish State would be tiny and the holy cities Jerusalem and Hebron would not be included.
The nation of Israel had waited two thousand years to come home and were not about to miss the opportunity to rebuild the Land of Israel. With mix feelings the Jews accepted the UN partition plan which left only 6% of what was originally promised to the Jews by the British.
Not surprisingly it was the Arabs who refused the Partition Plan. This refusal was not about land or about refugees or walls or occupation. It was about the refusal of Arabs to accept a Jewish State, anywhere and any size.

Let there not be any misunderstanding. It was not the Palestinian nation, State or leadership that refused the Partition. It was the Arab League. There was never an Arab Palestinian State or Government in the Area known as Palestine.

There were several official Palestinian objects which would give witness to a Palestinian entity.

Unfortunately for those who call themselves Palestinian, all these items are JEWISH! The Palestine Post was a JEWISH newspaper as was the Bank of Palestine. In fact there is absoloutely no record of anything Arab that would hint to an Arab Palestine Government or State.
That’s simply because there never was such an entity!

This flag did NOT exist officially till 1964

Egyptian born Yasser Arafat was the first ever Palestine Government official in history. This happened in 1964 



Top right - 1948 Arab Invasion / Top Left - 1956 Arab Invasion
Bottom Left 1967 Arab Invasion / 1973 Arab Invasion
Over the past 64 years of Israel’s existence she had to fight numerous wars. Neither of them involved a Palestinian army. 
After the 1948 Arabinvasion of Israel and for the next 18 years the Arabs had control over the whole west bank, Gaza, Sinai and Jerusalem. In those 18 years there was never an attempt or even a request to declare a Palestinian State on the land conquered by the Arab armies.

This is a map of the Armistice lines after the 1948 Arab invasion of Israel. This is what is called the   ‘GREEN LINE’.  As you can see on the map the Green Line has nothing to do with a Palestinian State or rights of any kind.

 Jerusalem was in the hand of Jordan, Gaza belonged to Egypt and the Golan Heights was part of Syria.
Ignoring the fact that Israel liberated these areas after the Arab armies attacked again in 1967, the Palestinians have absolutely nothing to do with the GREEN LINE and Israel simply never occupied an Arab Palestine.
The next time you chose to argue with me (Israel_shield) on twitter, or scream from the top of your lungs that Israel “Occupied” Palestine I am going to kindly ask you to check your history.

Palestinian propaganda has lied to the world long enough. One would expect of institutions like the UN to learn history and not allow the Arabs to fabricate it in order to intentionally hold on to an anti Israel opinions.
