Debunking Lies and Myths

Debunking Lies and Myths

Thursday, February 20, 2014


It is routinely mentioned that all the problems started either with the reconstitution of the State of Israel in 1948, or with the liberation of Jewish territories during the defensive war of 1967.

But the problem of the loss of the Jewish country once called Judea, and problems with invaders go much further back.  The next layer back in time would be the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine.  Further still would be the Christian and Arab conquests and occupation, and then the layer represented by the Roman defeat of the kingdom of Judea and the dispersal of most (not all) the Jews living in Judea.

On the following article the author presents issues concerning the Mandate for Palestine in the first part of the twentieth century.

“Mandate for Palestine”
The Legal Aspects of Jewish Rights

1920 - Original territory assigned to the Jewish National Home
1922 - Final territory assigned to the Jewish National Home

“In Palestine as of Right and Not on Sufferance ...”
“When it is asked what is meant by the development of the Jewish National Home in Palestine, it may be answered that it is not the imposition of a Jewish nationality upon the inhabitants of Palestine as a whole, but the further development of the existing Jewish community, with the assistance of Jews in other parts of the world, in order that it may become a centre in which the Jewish people as a whole may take, on grounds of religion and race, an interest and a pride. But in order that this community should have the best prospect of free development and provide a full opportunity for the Jewish people to display its capacities, it is essential that it should know that it is in Palestine as of right and not on sufferance.”

Winston Churchill
British Secretary of State for the Colonies
June 1922

Ever ask yourself why during the 30 year period - between 1917 to 1947 - thousands of Jews throughout the world woke up one morning and decided to leave their homes and go to Palestine? The majority did this because they heard that a future national home for the Jewish people was being established in Palestine, on the basis of the League of Nations obligation under the “Mandate for Palestine” document. The “Mandate for Palestine,” an historical League of Nations document, laid down the Jewish legal right to settle anywhere in western Palestine, between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, an entitlement unaltered in international law. The “Mandate for Palestine” was not a naive vision briefly embraced by the international community. Fifty-one member countries – the entire League of Nations – unanimously declared on July 24, 1922:
“Whereas recognition has been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country.”
It is important to point out that political rights to self-determination as a polity for Arabs were guaranteed by the same League of Nations in four other mandates – in Lebanon and Syria (The French Mandate), Iraq, and later Trans-Jordan [The British Mandate]. Any attempt to negate the Jewish people’s right to Palestine - Eretz-Israel, and to deny them access and control in the area designated for the Jewish people by the League of Nations is a serious infringement of international law. 
The “Road Map” vision, as well as continuous pressure from the “Quartet” (U.S., the European Union, the UN and Russia) to surrender parts of Eretz-Israel are contrary to international law that firmly call to “encourage … close settlement by Jews on the land, including State lands and waste lands not required for public purposes.” It also requires the Mandatory for “seeing that no Palestine territory shall be ceded or leased to, or in any way placed under the control of the government of any foreign power.”
In their attempt to establish peace between the Jewish state and its Arab neighbors, the nations of the world should remember who the lawful sovereign is with its rights anchored in international law, valid to this day: The Jewish Nation. And in support of the Jewish people, I sat down and wrote this pamphlet.

Former Canadian Minister Stockwell Day 'Shocked' by Visit to Temple Mount - the most sacred Jewish site - when he witnessed discrimination towards Jews and the police ban against Jewish prayer so as not to upset the Arabs who riot and pelt police and Jews with rocks at the mere presence of Jews there.

A former Canadian minister who visited the Temple Mount on Sunday was shocked to learn of the discrimination shown by Israeli police officers towards Jews.

Stockwell Day, who served as Canada’s Minister of Public Safety between 2006 and 2008, visited the Temple Mount following a coincidental meeting with a resident of Jerusalem, Yosef Rabin, who regularly visits the Temple Mount compound.

Rabin, who spoke to Arutz Sheva on Monday, said that his meeting with Day took place over Shabbat, when he visited friends for a Shabbat meal also attended by Day.

During the meal, Rabin said, he told the former Canadian minister about the situation on the Temple Mount where police, in an attempt to appease the Muslim Waqf which was left in charge of the compound after the 1967 Six Day War,  ban Jews from praying or performing any other form of worship. Police sometimes close the Mount to Jews altogether in response to Muslim riots - for days or weeks at a time - despite evidence that such violence is usually planned in advance for the specific purpose of forcing Jews out.

“When I told Day about the situation on the Temple Mount, it pegged his interest and he asked me to arrange a visit for him,” said Rabin.

After the Sabbath, Rabin got in touch with LIBA project coordinator Yehuda Glick, who accompanied Rabin and Day to the Temple Mount the next day.

"[The former Canadian minister] was shocked over how Jewish police can do these things to Jews. He did not understand how one can talk about the reunification of Jerusalem while at the same time Jews are not allowed to open their mouths on the Temple Mount," said Rabin, who added that during this particular visit, he encountered a new phenomenon whereby Jews were forbidden to speak with tourists who asked questions about the Temple Mount. Police forbade Israelis to speak with tourists about the compound, claiming it bothers the Waqf, he added.

Former minister Day, said Rabin, could not believe his eyes when he saw the long lines of Jews waiting to get in, the Arab disturbances on the compound, the conduct of the Waqf and the endless shouting. “He could not understand how the Israeli government could do this to Jews.”

Rabin told Arutz Sheva that Day is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during his visit to Israel and would bring up the issue of the Temple Mount during the meeting.

Day, a former leader of the Canadian Alliance party which later merged with the Progressive Conservative Party to become the Conservative Party of Canada, lost the party’s leadership to Canada's current Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, in 2002. Nevertheless, he remained on good terms with Harper, who is also currently visiting Israel, and served as a minister in his cabinet before retiring from political life.

The Temple Mount is Judaism's holiest site and the location of the two Holy Temples of Jerusalem, the latter of which was destroyed by the Romans in 70CE. Despite that fact, Jewish visitors face severe restrictions upon ascending the Mount, while the Waqf works to remove any Jewish presence on the Mount and consistently destroys Jewish antiquities on the compound in a direct violation of a ruling by the Supreme Court.

Brief History of Jerusalem - Its Jewish history and Muslim occupation




The following article is from the Jewish Council for Public Affairs - JCPA

Palestinians often hear from their leaders that a Muslim holy site in Jerusalem, al-Aksa mosque, is in danger of collapse – and the Jews are to blame. Whether printed in cartoons, preached in mosques or taught in schools, the lie is accepted as common knowledge across the Arab world. Millions of Muslims accept it as truth.
The message is clear: Jews seek to expel the Arabs from Jerusalem. This lie is nothing new. For the past century, Palestinian leaders have told the “Al-Aksa is in danger” lie in order to incite their people to attack Jews.
It is important to expose and counter this fabrication because it remains a spark that can lead to bloodshed. Nadav Shragai, a veteran journalist and Jerusalem expert, has written the authoritative study on the history of the lie. His work is presented on this site, chapter by chapter. It is also available in PDF or ebook format. Below are five facts that you should know about al-Aksa: -

The only alleged link between Islam and Temple Mount is that it is said that their prophet Muhammad had a dream of being there.  That's all.  He was never there physically. 

Then came the Muslim conquest, the occupation, and the building of a mosque.  Today Muslims say this Jewish sacred site is all theirs, and riot at the mere presence of Jews. 

After Israel liberated Temple Mount in the 1967 war, the Israeli government handed over control over the site to the Jordanians.  The Jordanians had attacked Israel and lost the war.  Still, the secular Israeli government thought nothing of surrendering the most sacred Jewish site in the world to the Arabs as a conciliatory gesture, because of the mosque existing there. 

These days the Arabs who control Temple Mount forbid Jews from praying at the site.  Christian tourists are allowed in, but Jews are harassed and kept out for the most part.  Those Jews allowed in are not allowed to even move their lips in prayer.  If they do so they are arrested.   This violates Israel's own freedom of religion laws.  
Israeli authorities arrest Jews for daring to move their lips in prayer when visiting Temple Mount.
More information on Temple Mount
Here King Solomon built the First Temple almost 3,000 years ago. It was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE, but 70 years later Jews returning from exile built the Second Temple on the same site. King Herod refashioned it into an edifice of great splendor.


MYTH - Jews get favorable treatment by police and the courts.  In fact it is Jews who are at a disadvantage.

The following is not an unusual occurrence.  Police have in the past characterized clear acts of road terror as "accidents". Arab truck drivers deliberately cross into the opposite lane to strike Jewish cars full of children.  The drivers' excuses are risible, but pro-Arab police and pro-Arab judges pretend to believe them.
There is a leftist element in Israel that sympathizes with Arab terrorists.  They have been educated by leftist teachers and professors, and read the leftist media.  In their own way they do their part in undermining the law and the state - and the security of the country.  
Here is the case of an obvious murder.  Six empty bullet shells at the site were enough evidence.  But not to police and the pro-Arab court system. 
Contrary to allegations, Israel has fully integrated Israeli Arabs into all kinds of jobs, particularly as police, court lawyers and judges.  But this attitude is not due to Arabs in those jobs alone.  Plenty of leftist Jewish Israelis have attained posts of influence from which they can sabotage justice and security.

Police 'Bungled' Investigation of Rabbi’s Murder

State Comptroller’s report highly critical of police in case of terrorist attack written off as suicide.

The State Comptroller has issued a strong condemnation of police behavior in the investigation of the death of Rabbi Moshe Talbi.
Rabbi Talbi, 54, a father of seven, was found dead of a gunshot wound in his car nearly three years ago, outside the Israeli community of Revava in Samaria. Despite evidence indicating that he had been murdered – including the presence of six bullet shells in his car – police insisted that the rabbi had committed suicide.
Police only agreed to reopen the case after the family hired a private pathologist, and took her findings to Knesset, where they gathered support among MKs for further investigation. A second investigation indicated that Rabbi Talbi may have been murdered by terrorists.
Due to their erroneous assumption, police officers failed to conduct basic tests that could have helped find the killers, State Comptroller Yosef Shapira stated.
“Various examinations that are required in any investigation of a death of this kind were not carried out,” he wrote.
“They did not check for fingerprints or take DNA samples from the Rabbi’s car, his clothing was not examined, a picture of the scene was not taken immediately, but rather, only much later, no pathologist was brought to the scene, and there was no analysis of the blood pattern at the scene.  The bullet that was left at the scene was not located, and security cameras were not checked,” he noted.
“The fact that police reached the conclusion that it was a suicide before completing the investigation meant they did not conduct critical tests which could have shed light on the circumstances of the death,” he charged.
Attorney Shmuel Lankry, Rabbi Talbi’s brother-in-law, spoke to Arutz Sheva about the case. He noted that police had insisted Rabbi Talbi’s death was a suicide despite the complete lack of evidence that the rabbi had been depressed, and despite tell-tale signs of a violent struggle in the car.
In addition, he said, a nearby security camera – which police failed to check – showed two suspicious figures in the area shortly before the rabbi’s death.
Lankry said police had hidden evidence that contradicted the suicide theory, including the presence of DNA that did not belong to Rabbi Talbi on the trigger of the gun that killed him.
He noted that the State Comptroller had also taken police to task for the way in which officers broke the news of Rabbi Talbi’s death to his son Netanel. Police first summoned Netanel Talbi for investigation, and only after he arrived told him his father was dead.
“The son called his father to tell him he had been summoned for investigation and didn’t know why, but there was no father to answer him,” Lankry said.

The comptroller condemned officers’ behavior in the incident as “unreasonable” and “insensitive.” He rejected to argument made by police that their goal had been to investigate quickly, saying, “Even if Netanel’s help was needed in the investigation, it could have been sought in a more appropriate, more sensitive manner.”

The Talbi family is not seeking revenge, Lankry noted. The family simply wishes to avoid any similar scenarios in the future, he said.  “This is a matter of public interest.”

He noted that the police behavior exhibited after Rabbi Talbi’s death was not a one-off event.

Following the deaths of Asher Palmer and his infant son Yonatan, police wrote off the incident as a car crash caused by careless driving. Only the family’s protests, and the fact that Asher’s gun had been stolen from the scene, led police to investigate further and to conclude that the two had been murdered by terrorists, Lankry recalled.

The case of Asher Palmer and baby son mentioned above
Clear evidence of a deliberate attack was a large rock that had been thrown inside the vehicle.
Police pretended not to see it, except that a passerby had taken a photograph of the scene that showed the bloodied rock that had hit Mr. Palmer's head, who then lost control of the vehicle.  
Throwing rocks at Jewish motorists is a daily activity for Arabs of all ages, which has been so far largely disregarded by Israeli authorities, in spite of the fact that there have been injuries and deaths from rock attacks.

Israel Police Chief:  "car accident" was terror attack, after all

Israel Police Chief Yochanan Danino has confirmed that the victims of a tragic car crash Friday were murdered by terrorists, Channel 2 television reported Sunday afternoon. Previously, police stated that the crash was caused by driver error and was definitely not the result of an attack.  The dramatic change in approach followed a meeting Saturday night on autopsy findings in the deaths of the two victims, 25-year-old Asher Palmer and his infant son Yehonatan.

Arutz Sheva has obtained a document detailing findings from the scene of the crash. Among the evidence that at first failed, for unknown reasons, to convince police that terrorists may have been involved:
A hole in the front windshield of the car, a massive rock found in the front seat with human blood on it, a tear in fabric of the steeling wheel cover and dust indicating a blow from the rock, and damage to Asher Palmer's face suggesting an impact unrelated to the crash.

Even when the perpetrators are convicted, it's only a matter of time till the government releases hundreds Arab prisoners from jail, many of them actual terrorists and murderers.  Therefore there's no incentive for Arabs to restrain their violence.

MYTH:  While much of the talk in the Jewish-Arab conflict seems to be about land and borders, land is not the main issue. 
A map of the Middle East shows vast expanses of Arab land, and a tiny, almost invisible sliver that is Israel.  Prior to the reconstitution of the state of Israel the local Arabs did not care too much about land ownership.  They lived and worked under the Ottoman Empire rule.
But the very idea of Jews returning to reclaim their country was anathema to them.  To understand that you must also understand Islam. 
The Muslim ideology was constructed using Biblical narrative as a basic layer (Abraham), and then on Christianity.  They did not have to start from scratch.  So they built mosques on top of churches and synagogues, the way their ideas were built on top of Judaism and Christianity.  When Arabs conquered the land of Israel, they built the Al Aksa mosque right on the site  where King Solomon's Temple had been until it was destroyed by the Romans.  
The issue is complex enough to deserve further explanation, but this brief note should serve to point out how the conflict is not land but religion.  And the reason why the world - Muslims, Christians, and atheists, want to destroy Judaism has a lot to do with true Jewish values and with Islam's and Christianity's need to completely supplant Judaism.  They can't do that, however, with millions of Jews still around, and with a country named Israel that insists on characterizing itself as a "Jewish country". 
You could dismantle Israel and give all that land to the Arabs, and attacks on Jews would continue, you can be certain of that.

Debunking "The Map that Lies"

From Fox News:


Advertisements at train stations in suburban New York depicting shrinking Palestinian territory in Israel are riling some critics who say they are “deliberately misleading and inaccurate,” has learned.

The ads, which were purchased by The Committee for Peace in Israel and Palestine, show the “Palestinian Loss of Land” from 1946 to 2010. An accompanying headline reads: "4.7 million Palestinians are classified by the U.N. as Refugees."
Henry Clifford, co-chairman of the group, told he paid $25,000 to display posters at 50 Metro-North Railroad stations for 30 days. They are to “educate and inform people” on the proper historical context of the region, he said.

“There’s always room for discussion of different sides of every story, but there’s no room for discussion on fact,” Clifford said. “Anyone who challenges these maps and the content of these ads, it’s they’re obligation to show that they’re historically wrong.

The ball is in their court.  ”Excellent! This gives me the chance to repost this:

This map is a lie.

The first panel of the traditional version of this map has the biggest lie:

While I presume that the white sections are indeed the land that was privately owned by Jews, the land in green was not privately owned by Arabs.

Only a tiny percentage of land in Palestine was privately owned. The various categories of land ownership included:

  • Mulk: privately owned in the Western sense.
  • Miri: Land owned by the government (originally the Ottoman crown) and suitable for agricultural use. Individuals could purchase a deed to cultivate this land and pay a tithe to the government. Ownership could be transferred only with the approval of the state. Miri rights could be transferred to heirs, and the land could be sub-let to tenants. If the owner died without an heir or the land was not cultivated for three years, the land would revert to the state.
  • Mahlul: Uncultivated Miri lands that would revert to the state, in theory after three years.
  • Mawat (or Mewat): So-called “dead”, unreclaimed land. It constituted about 50 to 60% of the land in Palestine. It belonged to the government. ...If the land had been cultivated with permission, it would be registered, at least under the Mandate, free of charge.

By the early 1940s Jews owned about one third of Mulk land in Palestine and Arabs about two-thirds. The vast majority of the total land, however, belonged to the government, meaning that when the state of Israel was established, it became legally Israel's. (I believe that about 77% of the land was owned by the government, assuming 6 million dunams of private land as shown in this invaluable webpage on the topic from which I got much of this information.)
To say that the green areas were "Palestinian" land is simply a lie.

In the case of this version of the map, the lie is even worse, as the implication is that pre-1948 Palestine was an entirely Arab country with no Jews and no Jewish land ownership. Of course, before 1948 the word "Palestinian" more often than not referred to Palestinian Jews, not Palestinian Arabs. For example, the Palestine exhibit at the 1939 World's Fair was entirely Jewish, the Palestine Orchestra was entirely Jewish, the Palestine soccer team was almost entirely Jewish, and so forth. 

Now the next one:

While this is a somewhat accurate representation of the partition plan (with the notable exception of Jerusalem, which was meant to be an international city,), it has nothing to do with land ownership. The entire purpose of this map is to make it appear that Israel has been grabbing Arab land consistently, to serve as a bridge between maps 1 and 3. What is not said, of course, is that Israel accepted the partition and the Arabs did not, so as a result Israel in 1949 looked like it does in map 3.

Map 3 is still a lie, however, because in no way was the green land "Palestinian" at that time. Gaza was administered by Egypt and the West Bank annexed by Jordan. No one at the time spoke about a Palestinian Arab state on the areas controlled by Arab states - only in Israel.

In other words, this progression of maps is a series of lies meant to push a bigger lie, and it is tragic that a lot of people believe them to be the truth.

Here is a small attempt on my side to show a more accurate picture of Israel's giving land it controlled up for peace since 1967:

This map shows that Israel gave up control of the Sinai, Gaza, Southern Lebanon and much of the West Bank over the years. Rather than falsely accusing Israel as a land-grabbing rogue state, it accurately shows Israel as perhaps the only state in history that has voluntarily given up more than two-thirds of the areas it controls in exchange for nothing more than a paper agreement - or sometimes not even that. All at the risk of serious security concerns for her people, no less.

This is all because Israel wants, desperately, to live in real peace with her neighbors. This desire is not reciprocated by those neighbors, unfortunately.

The real map shows the truth of Israel's incredible concessions in the often vain hope for peace.

Now, as far as the right-hand side of the ad goes, I have debunked that as well; my most recent one was this post from less than a month ago.

So, Mr. Clifford, I've shown how every pixel in your posters are historically wrong. 

Will you answer me, or admit the truth?

The ball is in your court.

(By the way, as of two days ago, the webpage for the organization named in these ads has received fewer hits total in its history than Elder of Ziyon receives in an hour.)


Introduction to this blog
Without having to go into quantum theory to cast doubt on what appears to us as reality, we need to question everything in our everyday life - if only as an exercise in personal independence and survival.
This need is innate in us.  Remember how as little kids we drove adults crazy with our insistent question "Why" to everything?  At some point we were simply told this was rude. 
The fable of the little boy who said the emperor wore no clothes is an exception in a social and literary web thick with childhood indoctrination to submit and comply.
Schools told us to rely on authorities - teachers, writers, and government, among others - to make up our minds on what was real, true, and good.
The construction of our reality as we were growing up was helped by popular music, movies, books, other people, and the media. 
By the time we reached adolescence we thought we were being rebellious, original and independent, when actually most of the time we were just simply echoing other voices, not our own.
Growing up and maturing is harder than it seems.  It's not something taking place in the background while we're busy living and learning.  It's a truly transformative process that wires and rewires our brain throughout our lives. 
This blog is an effort to work on my own ongoing transformation, and I hope that the sample of articles I'll be posting here will help you question the narrative that people in power are so keen to impose on all of us. 
I'll be focusing on the case of Israel a lot because it is a subject that is full of historical significance. 
World War II and the Holocaust exposed human nature - including the noble and the base, lucidity and self-deception, often existing simultaneously in individuals in ways that are lessons for us all. 
Who and what are we?  The study of those years are a good and practical way to start.   Cut through all the reams of scientific and philosophical studies, and read about those real people so close to us in time and space.
Society's handling of events during and after the Holocaust is a disturbing example of how precarious "civilization" really is.  The human dark side is there, always looming, only one step away from taking over our decision making - needing only a little bit of rationalization to unleash the unthinkable. 
The case of the world against Israel is a disturbing example of how horrors begin.  The lessons of the 1930s and 40s have already been discarded.  Not forgotten, just simply set aside. Here we go again, as lies and half-truths mount forming a truly formidable monster of hate and destruction.
Unlike the 30s and the 40s, this monster has now learned to disguise itself behind a false face of "humanitarianism".   That's all the "rationalization" that our post-World War II civilization needs to exercise the atavistic need to attack "the other" - conveniently the Jews, already the target of hatred, persecution, torture and murder for two thousand years. 

As Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harpers said  recently, attacks on Israel are often only a more refined way of attacking the Jews.
As you read the articles I will be posting here, I hope you will realize how the plan to dismantle Israel started even before the country had been reconstituted in 1948.  The Arabs who were living on the land at that time became pawns in a much larger international plot to destroy Israel - and eventually the Jews.  
The history of how this is being done is full of shocking surprises, as will be demonstrated by articles that lift the veil of deception. 

Sadly, some of those harming Israel and threatening the survival of the country are Jews themselves, motivated by self-deception, by leftist ideology, and other reasons.  This is all part of the human tragedy we need to understand.  We'll have to break illusions to get closer to the truth.
