Israel won Beirut from Jordan in the 1967 war. d. He undoubtedly will send the obligatory Middle East envoy, who will spend time with all the parties, make suitable speeches and extract meaningless concessions from all sides. In 1947, the newly formed United Nations, rather than designate the entire land west of the Jordan River as the long-promised Jewish national homeland, enacted a second partition. The strike was turned back by a few recently arrived Messerchmitt aircraft, bought from Czechoslovakia.

Not that the Methodists would tell you. The same fight was called by the Jewish people as The Jewish-Arab conflict over Eretz Israel. J ordan and the West Bank were not mentioned. The offer was transmitted in secret through the United States, but was turned down. Everyone involved had let August pass, July pass, and June and May and April pass without “a new beginning.” Why not September? In effect the Mandate established a colonial government over the Palestinian people, while overseeing the immigration of Jews into Palestine.

A straight line divided Syria and Mesopotamia, with the French slated to administer the northern part (most of today’s Syria) while the British would be taking the southern part, which meant most of today’s Iraq. The Yazidi in Iraq and the Christian Copts in Egypt are not "occupiers" or "settlers;" neither are the Jews in Israel. However, economic, population and other indicators suggest that objectively, the Arabs of Palestine benefited from the Mandate and Zionist investment.

Another major challenge in the region is Iran, which routinely destabilizes the Middle East and threatens the security of Israel. To this very day (and even though our people claim to be Christian) we find steeples on our churches (which are remnants of pagan phallic worship). In the Gaza Strip Hamas, the � Palestinian � branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, which took over political control within a few weeks of being democratically elected by throwing PLO and Fatah sympathizers off the top floors of high buildings, is eager to take over the West Bank should the opportunity arise.

The first of these actions was announced on December 31, 1964, an attack on the Israel water carrier at Beit Netopha, but in fact no attack had taken place. Apart from these disturbances, the country enjoyed peace and prosperity until 611, when Khosrow II, king of Persia, launched an invasion of Byzantine territory. Our struggle had all sorts of political ideologies but it was never completely secularised.

On the Palestinian front, the view regarding international solutions is going through two crises. Israel sought to impede the development of a cohesive national consciousness among the Palestinians by dealing with various minority groups, such as Druze, Circassian s, and Bedouin; by hindering the work of the Muslim religious organizations; by arresting and harassing individuals suspected of harbouring nationalist sentiments; and by focusing on education as a means of creating a new Israeli Arab identity.

And, he makes a seminal point when he tells us that the Israeli government has no intention of incorporating the mass of West Bank Palestinians (to say nothing of the Gazans) into the Jewish state. Except to someone predisposed to find clues of Zionist expansionism, the 10-agora piece has only the vaguest resemblance to a map of the Middle East. During a short interlude of anarchy that followed the last weak kings of the 19th dynasty, Egyptian rule was completely extinguished, and the ephemeral victories of Ramses III in the early decades of the 12th century scarcely affected Palestinian history.

Map 3 (1949-67): Jordanian West Bank, Egyptian Gaza The third map shows further decline in "Palestinian land" which resulted from Arab losses in the 1948 war. I read it and wanted to bring you a link. The new, current anti-Semitism now adds on to the old kind, the demonization of the State of Israel. The latest round of negotiations broke down one year ago. But years later, after she was honored for her wartime work, her picture appeared in a newspaper. "A man, a painter, telephoned me," said Sendler, "`I remember your face,' he said. `It was you who took me out of the ghetto.' I had many calls like that!"

Israel is committing atrocities against the Palestinians with total impunity, and yet you maintain, ‘Israel is beseiged.’” Hanan Ashrawi, in “The Progressive”, December 2000 “In American coverage of the recent Camp David meetings, the American press obediently followed the Israeli and US government spin that while Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak made courageous concessions for peace, Palestinian unwillingness to compromise caused the meeting to fail. “Never mind that Barak’s ‘courageous concessions’ consisted of allowing the Palestinians to have joint administrative responsibility over a couple of remote Arab neighborhoods of Arab East Jerusalem — pathetic crumbs tossed on the floor which Arafat was expected to gratefully pick up.” American Jewish reporter, Eduardo Cohen, from “What Americans Need to Know — But Probably Won’t Be Told — To understand Palestinian Rage” from Palestine Media Watch, www.pmwatch.org “Barak appears to be asking for only 10% of the occupied territories.

In fact, Schaeffer's son Frank has become a vocal critic of "the largely unchallenged influence of Christian Zionism." [17] Making matters worse, there is a cadre of rising young evangelical stars who are bonding on trips to Israel and the Palestinian Authority and returning to push their fellow evangelicals away from the Jewish state. What is true for religious minorities is also true when it comes to the rights of women.
