Israel forever!

I have always supported Israel, and now this video has given me much needed information on how to reply back to those Anti-Semitic haters. If I was to be the Premier of China, I would definitely drop support for the Arabs and stick with Israel.

Watching this, keeps me strong in the fight against those who share lies and support terrorism. It's not always easy to stand with Israel, but it IS always worth it! Thanks a lot, thanks for sharin the Truth! Israel is a beautiful country which must be protected. God bless Israel.

understanding an exchange of populations can end bloodshed

As here, at most I see a cursory reference to the Mizrahi expulsion in 1948. You should contrast the ways the Arabs treated the "Palestine refugees" and the way Israel handled the Mizrahim ,most of whom were not culturally at all ready for life in Israel, and Israel, with housing, food and job shortages and having just defeated five Arab armies was just not ready for them. Even after 60 years of educational advantages, there are vast cultural and values differences. But the Mizrahim have rebuilt their lives and moved into every orbit of the nation. The Palestinians, with the vast wealth of the Arab nations, have gotten little other than UN handouts and three generations have been humiliated into wasted, angry lives. But I point the finger at Israel which has utterly failed to make evident to the whole world the difference in the way the two sets of refugees' needs have been met. I have read only passing references to the matter of the Mizrahim through the years even though it has been a monomania with me.Every day we don't make the message clear, we contribute to the deaths of innocent Israelis and waste billions on safeguards that would not be otherwise necessary. Truly, passionate Zionist though I may be, I charge Israel with gross negligence in not insisting on this message reaching all ears. I have spoken of it on the radio several times and to persons, both Jewish and nonJewish. They just don't seem to grasp the simple complexities of the issue. Can you help? Just this one issue might change the course of history. If you begin negotiations with the PA with an insistence that this matter be resolved first with Mizrahi losses in land and assets tabled along with PA claims, the latter would prove negligible. The world understands numbers easier than ideologies. It is calculated that Mizrahi losses in land alone would total an area seven times the landmass of Israel today!

I believe that the reason why so many people spread so many lies and negative propaganda about Israel and the Jews is because they (the Jews) are a silent and constant rebuke to the nations of the world.
