THE TRUE HISTORY OF ISRAEL AND GAZA

The following report will give you accurate information and not the  Liberal Media or the Arab Media propaganda.  There are so many lies told about Israel and the Jewish people. Remember that you will be judged by The One True God on how you treat the Jewish people. Bless  them and you will be blessed, and curse them and you will be cursed:

The Cantor Comment: A History of Gaza and Israel

by Ron Cantor

There is so much misinformation concerning the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, that I thought a brief, and I mean brief, history of the Gaza Strip might be helpful.

1948: Israel declares independence. The War of Independence ensues and as many as 140,000 Arabs fled from Israel to Gaza. To be clear, David Ben Gurion, in Israel’s declaration of independence encouraged the Arabs to stay and help build the new state. He guaranteed them the same freedoms Jewish Israelis would enjoy. Still, for many reasons (you cancheck this out to review the reason for the exodus) the Arabs fled.

POST WAR: When the war ended, Egypt controlled Gaza and turned it into a prison. Even Al Jazeera, the openly pro-Arab, anti-Israel news outlet, recognized how poorly the Egyptians treated their Arab cousins.

Unlike the West Bank, which was effectively annexed by Jordan in 1950 and its population offered Jordanian citizenship, Egypt maintained Gaza under military rule until a legislative council was elected in 1957.Moreover, unlike Jordan, Egypt had little ties with or concern for Gaza, and thus the Strip received little attention or investment in infrastructure between 1948 and 1967.

The world was silent. No one cared for these Arab refugees. As long as Israel could not be blamed, it was not an issue. “In 1955, one observer (a member of the United Nations Secretariat) noted that ‘For all practical purposes it would be true to say that for the last six years in Gaza over 300,000 poverty-stricken people have been physically confined to an area the size of a large city park.’”(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occupation_of_the_Gaza_Strip_by_Egypt)

1967: The Six Day War effectively liberated the West Bank inhabitants. That’s right, I said liberated. In the early years, Israelis and Gazan Arabs got along just fine. My wife used to go into Gaza with her father as a child to buy vegetables. It was safe.

EARLY SEVENTIES – 1987: The PLO turns Gazans against Israel. Frequent conflicts erupt between Israel and Gaza. In 1987 the first Intifada was unleashed against Israel where Arab youths, armed with large rocks, targeted both Israeli soldiers and citizens. Israelis were shot at on the highway and sometimes attacked in their homes.

POST-GULF WAR: President Bush Sr., after crushing Saddam Hussein’s attack on Kuwait, calls for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. The first peace conference is held in Madrid. Under Clinton, Yitzak Rabin allowed the PLO into Israel to become the de-facto leadership of the Palestinian people. Things were quiet for a season and there was much cooperation between Israelis and Palestinians. The PLO became the Palestinian Authority and governed the West Bank and Gaza.

LATE NINETIES: Palestinian suicide bombers unleash terror in Israel. Over the next decade 171 suicide bombers would explode themselves in an effort to kill as many Israelis as possible and cause terror throughout the country.

2000-2005: Palestinians unleash the Second Intifada against Israel. Israel, in defense, builds a Security Fence, which causes the rebellion to fizzle out, as it effectively stopped the suicide bombings.

2005: The terror group Hamas wins a third of the Palestinian legislative council.

2006: Hamas wins a majority of the Palestinian legislative council.

2007: Hamas takes over the Gaza strip from Fatah.

BACK UP TO 2005: Israel, in a controversial move, evacuates Gaza, while gaining nothing in exchange from the Palestinians.

2005-2009: Hamas sees Israel’s evacuation as a sign of weakness and unleashes thousands of Qassam Rockets and Grad Missiles against population centers in southern Israel. Finally, in late 2008, after Israel had endured 3,000 rockets just that year, she invades Gaza in Operation Cast Lead. After 22 days, Israel leaves Gaza, feeling that it had greatly neutralized Hamas’ ability to attack Israel.

2012: After increases in rocket attacks, yesterday Israel steps up attacks and kills three Hamas operatives, including the top military commander, who was responsible for the capture and imprisonment of Gilad Shalit.

Hamas declares that Israel has “opened the gates of hell,” and unleashes 275 rockets against Israel today, including three that reach the Tel Aviv area, showing that they now have the capability of killing Israelis in its largest population center—crossing all red lines.

Please pray for us.
