The Truth about Israel and Gaza

Dear Leaders and Friends,

It has now been three and a half months since the terrorist organization, Hamas - with the help and support of many Gazan civilians - carried out its brutal massacre of at least 1,200 Israelis, injured more than 12,500 others, and took approximately 240 hostages (including at least 30 children) to Gaza. Thankfully, some of those taken captive were released in November in exchange for terrorists held in Israeli jails. However, there are still over 130 - including men, women and children - in Gaza and the fate of many of them is unknown at this time. 

In the first few days after Hamas' attack on October 7th, as the extent of the atrocities committed by terrorists and Gazan civilians became known, international sympathy and expressions of support for Israel poured forth. It seemed that maybe at last, the world would understand the existential danger present on Israel's borders. Unfortunately, however, the global outpouring of support for the Jewish State started to diminish as soon as Israel began to take necessary actions to protect its people.

In parallel with the waning of support, antisemitism surged worldwide. As soon as Israel began to make targeted strikes against rocket-launching sites in Gaza, antisemitic acts increased exponentially in Great Britain, France, Germany, Australia, and the US. And now that the Israel Defense Forces continue to destroy terrorist infrastructure and tunnels built for the purpose of waging war against Israel, world opinion has emphatically turned against the Jewish State.

Mainstream and social media play a leading role in the shaping of an anti-Israel worldview through the presentation of factual errors, omission of facts and context, focus on only one side of a story, and the application of a double standard for Israel that is not applied to any other country in the world. Media also aids and abets the false notion promoted by political and religious leaders alike that the lack of peace between Israel and Hamas (as well as other terrorist organizations) and the lack of an establishment of the so-called "two state solution" is due to a failure on Israel's part to make peace with its neighbors.

History records the fact that Israel has in fact made multiple offers for the sake of peace, while all attempts to establish an Arab state next to a Jewish State have been soundly rejected by the Arabs ever since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Arab leadership has consistently demanded that there be only one state - an Arab state that encompasses all the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.

The irreconcilable nature of the Arab-Israeli conflict was already apparent before 1948 and is the reason Great Britain turned over to the United Nations the mandate it had been given by the League of Nations after WWI to create a Jewish State in the territory then known as Palestine.

In February 1947, British Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin spoke to the British Parliament and said:

"His Majesty’s Government have thus been faced with an irreconcilable conflict of principles...For the Jews the essential point of principle is the creation of a sovereign Jewish State. For the Arabs, the essential point of principle is to resist to the last the establishment of Jewish sovereignty in any part of Palestine."

It is important to emphasize the fact that by 1947, the Arabs of the land (only later to be known as Palestinians) already prioritized resistance to the establishment of a Jewish State in what was then known as Palestine, and there was no mention of any desire for a state of their own. Since Palestine is defined as the territory between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, all terrorist organizations, including Hamas, find it unacceptable for Jews to exist in any part of that land.

Also notice that the British government recognized this "irreconcilable conflict" before there was a State of Israel and before any of the false charges concerning current issues even existed - allegations now used to justify Palestinian violence against Jews, including the atrocities of October 7th. 

In the introduction to Hamas' charter, issued in 1988, Imam Hassan alBanna is quoted as follows:  

"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”

Hamas' intent to annihilate the Jewish State has not changed since 1988 as demonstrated in this chilling two-and-a-half-minute interview with a senior Hamas official, recorded after the events of October 7th. As you will see, he makes it perfectly clear that Hamas has no intention of ever living in peace with Israel and in fact lays claim to all the land from the east to west and north to south. Indeed, Hamas has published statements that assert its intent to repeat the kind of attack made on October 7th until all the Jews are annihilated.

The fact is, Israel is in an existential fight for its existence with an enemy intent on its annihilation! And yet much of the world, and certainly most of the media, is calling on Israel to stop its efforts to make sure Hamas can never again do what it did on October 7th. 

Israel did not start this war, but it is a war Israel MUST FIGHT and WIN in order to ensure the survival of the Jewish people! 


Probably very few of you receiving this email can join the battle physically. However, every one of you can play a vital role in the fight by being informed and equipped to counter the lies, distortions, omission of facts and propaganda spewed by mainstream and social media.
