Everyone Has to Help

     I have been reading your blog for a couple of years and enjoy it very much.

     About a year ago I became a moderator on a blog, after joining it I was saddened/shocked to find so many young people my age and younger who were anti-Semitic or misinformed.

     This blog has a large following and I felt it was a good way to reach out and dispel some of the rumors and lies about Israel and Judaism.

     I am concerned and need some advice on how to approach them, what to say or if I should say anything at all. Is this something I should be worried about? Is this trend normal? As a pro Israel blogger I felt an obligation to say something.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely, D

My response:

Shalom D,

     It is so good that you are concerned. Of course you should do something, but the problem is that they will most likely not listen, and the public might even come to dislike you for defending the truth, but still, you have to help.

    You should submit articles showing the truth, and warning against following articles/videos/pictures without verifying that they are true. So many times the hateful videos are later proven to be total frauds!

    You should publicize everything that you can find that sheds positive light on Israel. For instance, it is a known fact (and you should find a good non-Jewish source other than quoting me), that;

      The arabs who live here live longer than in any of the surrounding arab countries.

     The arabs in Jerusalem prefer to become Israelis than to give up their citizenship and be Palestinians

       The president of the arabs here (abbas) announced that when they have a Palestinian country no Jews will be allowed to live there. If we would say such a thing the world would scream apartheid, and condemn us.

     And on and on.

     Avoid answering their charges as they are almost always lies, and even if they are factual, they throw them at us only to deflect the charges against them. They want to keep us on the defensive instead of letting the truth be known.

     Maybe it would be best to publish these facts one at a time, and then repeat them from time to time, especially when they put out a ridiculous video showing Jews to be foolish. Site sources other than Jewish sources when you post them.

     Let your readers know that the problem in Israel with the arabs is not a Jewish/Arab problem. It is a Muslim problem. One out of five people in the world is Muslim, yet four out of five wars in the world are Muslim. Not just this war here in Israel, but in Boston, Canada, Spain, China, India, Turkey, and on and on and on. Ask why is it that twelve percent of the population in France is Muslim, but seventy percent of the jail population is Muslim? Let them know such things as the current list of “FBI Most Wanted Terrorists” contains 32 people. 30 of them are Muslims and two are left-wing liberals.

    Here are a few facts that your readers have to hear, and they will have to hear them over and over again. Remember, America forgot 9/11 in just a few years!

The Bible and the Koran both state that Israel is the Land that G-d has given to the Jewish people;

For instance; Koran Suras 5:21 "O my people [Children of Israel], enter the holy land that G-D has decreed for you, and do not rebel, lest you become losers."

Suras 17:104 “And we said to the Children of Israel afterwards, ‘Go live into this land. When the final prophecy comes to pass, we will summon you all in one group. We shall bring you altogether as mixed crowd.’” (gathered out of various nations).

Hamas Minister Tathi Hammad, March 23, 2012 said, “Who are Palestinians? Palestinians don’t come from Palestine…Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.”

“When Jordan attacked Israel in the 6 Day War and lost, they forfeited the land. This has been a historical truth in all wars throughout time. Nowhere in history, has a nefarious act of war and murder been rewarded by returning lost land so that they may try again. Any fool who thinks warmongers should be rewarded is motivated by something evil.”

   Good for you D

   Hashem bless you to be able to help.

   Let me know how things go.

  1. Hello!
    You said that according to the Qur'an, G-d gave the land of Palestine to the Jewish people. You don't see the whole picture. The Qur'an makes distinction between believers and disbelievers. it's not about Jews vs. Non-Jews.
    The Qur'an says:
    2:140 Or do you say that Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants were Jews or Christians? Say, "Are you more knowing or is Allah?"...
    10:84 And Moses said, "O my people, if you have believed in Allah, then rely upon Him, if you should be Muslims."
    3:67 Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was one inclining toward truth, a Muslim [submitting to Allah ]. And he was not of the polytheists.
    3:85 And whoever desires other than Islam as religion – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.

    Judaism seems focused on land and ethnicity. That's not G-d's religion, but man-made religion. Your article is racist, you wonder where Palestineas come from, while they were born in Palestine, not in Egypt or Saudi Arabia. Ex. An African-American should come back to Africa while he never stepped on there before?
    2:124 ... [ Allah ] said, "My covenant does not include the wrongdoers
    2:91 And when it is said to them, "Believe in what Allah has revealed," they say, "We believe [only] in what was revealed to us." And they disbelieve in what came after it, while it is the truth confirming that which is with them. Say, "Then why did you kill the prophets of Allah before, if you are [indeed] believers?"

    Allah knows best.
