Dr. Rivka Shpak Lissak

According to the Arabic- Palestinian propaganda, the Palestinians are the indigenous people of the country called Judea in the past, then Palestina under the British Mandte.

This article and others in the future will prove this propaganda is an attempt to rewrite history in order to eliminate the Jewish state.

Ma’ayan Hess-Ashkenazi researched the Arabic immigration to the Sharon, and this is what he found:

Trying to Obliterate the Jewish State

A group of Israeli Arab academics is behind the document called the “Haifa Declaration”. Like previous Israeli Arab documents, the authors have no hesitation about rewriting history for their usual ends: the obliteration of Israel’s Jewish character

Dr Rivka Shpak Lissak

“The Haifa Declaration” was written by Israeli Palestinian Arabs from the Mada al Carmel Center (The Arab Center for Applied Social Research) with European Union funding. It was published on May 15—the date the Palestinians mark as Naqba or “Catastrophe” Day.

The Khazar Kingdom: A Jewish Empire in the Middle Ages / Dr.Rivka Shpak Lissak

Are the East-European Jews descendants of the people of Khazaria who converted to Judaism?

Some historians believe that during the Middle Ages there were no more than 25,000 - 35,000 Jews in Western Europe.
They find it hard to agree with other historians whose studies show that by the 17th century there were hundreds of thousands of Jews in Eastern Europe,who were descendants of the Jews who had been expelled from Wetern and central Europe during the Middle Ages.

Nazareth Was A Jewish Town for Hundreds of Years

Christ’s city was Jewish until the 4th century A.D according to the historian Epiphanes. But, in fact, It lasted until the 7th century.

Nazareth nowadays is an Arabic city situated in the Lower Galilee, with a population of 70,000. Two thirds are Muslim and only a third are Christian: 14,000 Greek Orthodox, 9,000 Greek Catholic, and 1,000 Maronite Christians from Lebanon. Other Christians belong to the Coptic, Anglican, Baptist, and Armenian Churches. The process by which Nazareth has been transformed from a Christian city to a Muslim one began during the British Mandate period and accelerated since the establishment of the State of Israel.

The Demand For the Right of Return: a Trojan Horse to Destroy the Jewish State / DR.Rivka Shpak Lissak

The “right of return”, presented by the Palestinians as part of the solution for the Arab-Israeli conflict, is nothing but a Trojan Horse, like that left by the Greeks for the Trojans to bring it into their city and then destroy it from within. The “Right of Return” poses a great danger for the future of the Jewish state, and is itself a considerable obstacle for peace.
