Updates on Operation Protective Edge and the War With Hamas
Understand this: Hamas is a terrorist organization that does not want peace. The reason that there is no peace between Israel and Hamas is because Hamas WANTS this war. They want to fully obliterate the Jewish region form the Middle East. This is not about land, but Anti- Semitism and the hatred that the Radicals feel towards Jews.
Fake Images on Social Media Blame Israel for Violence
Response to Gordon’s questions (Taken from StandWithUs):
Israel’s presence in the West Bank is not illegal. It is the result of Arab and Palestinian aggression. Israel did not seek to expand into the West Bank. The area fell to Israel during Israel’s defensive war in 1967. Under customary law and the Hague Conventions, Israel was obligated to administer the area until peace was achieved. UN Resolution 242 (1967) assumed Israel would administer the territories until Arab countries were willing to negotiate new, more secure borders.
The Palestinian Authority has delayed continuing negotiations to determine future borders. In the meantime, Israel continues to face terrorist threats from the area, necessitating its presence. When Palestinian leaders finally say yes to peace, new, secure borders can be established.
Israel has not stalled the peace process; the facts are otherwise. Over the past 80 years, Israel has repeatedly shown its willingness to make territorial compromises and accept a two-state solution—in 1937, 1947, 1979, 2000, and 2008—but Palestinian and other Arab leaders have repeatedly said no. They have rejected any Jewish state, no matter how small its territory, and tried to destroy it through wars and terrorism. Palestinian Arabs must begin to say yes to peace and agree to compromises that will fulfill the national aspirations of both peoples.
