People want to know why it is so hard to see how unfair and anti-Semitic are the vicious attacks against Israel. Israel is the only Jewish state. The reason that every other people can have a state of their own, but the Jews can’t is what? All the land in question was originally Jewish. Yes the Jews are the indigenous people of Judea. No one denies Arabs conquered the region and ruled it, but ultimately they are from Arabia. Arabs are a wonderful people who have a history of great accomplishments. But there are 20 Arab nations covering millions of square kilometers. Is it too much to ask the world to let the Jews have their own nation on their ancestral homeland on a piece of land barely larger than a postage stamp? They have the better claim to their land.

Israel has over a million Arab citizens. They own land, have jobs, worship as they wish, enjoy healthcare, go to schools, vote in elections, and have more rights than any other minority in the Mideast. Israel is the beacon of religious tolerance in a region full of intolerance. Women have more rights and protections in Israel than in any other place in the Mideast. Gays and lesbians live openly in Israel. In other parts of the Mideast, they are persecuted, tortured, and killed.

The attacks against Israel are based on lies and double standards. They are ultimately anti-Semitic.

Many Arabs throughout the Mideast are starting to realize that they could live peacefully with a Jewish state, that they could mutually benefit from economic exchange, and military cooperation. Relations are also improving between Israel and nations in sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe, South and Central America. Israel also has growing ties to India, Russia, and China.

Before you slander the State of Israel again, ask yourself if you have ever applied the standards you are applying against Israel to any other country or people.
