Actuality History

From Deportation to Annihilation / Yuval Brandstetter, MD

June 4 2012
The Turkish government has produced a series of indictments against IDF officers which include charges of murder punishable by life sentences. This over the Mavi Marmara affair, that being the name of the ship which carried a Turkish and international terrorist contingents bent on joining hands with the Gaza Hamas terrorist organization.

The Cause of European Attitude Towards Israel / Peter Martino

May 30, 2012
Unfortunately, the Belgian attitude seems to be predominant in Europe today. Jewish religious practices are morally equated with intolerant Islamic behavior – but the Muslims are condoned while the Jews are criticized and the Jewish state is morally equated with Iran. The truth is deliberately misrepresented.

Count Palestinian Refugees / Daniel Pipes

Dear Reader:

Steven J. Rosen, head of the Middle East Forum's Washington Project, has for the past 1½ years led our effort to find innovative ways to challenge UNRWA's malign reign. He and I decided not to concentrate on the sins of this organization but instead to focus on the anomaly that it counted 750,000 refugees in 1949 and counts 5 million refugees today; no other refugee population grows in size.

What Would Have Happend to Jews in 1948 If They Lost the War against the Arabs / DR.Rivka Shpak Lissak

Part 0ne

Every year, on the day Israeli – Jews celebrate Israel's Independence Day, Arab – Israeli leaders organize a Nakba demonstration, under the slogan that Israeli Arabs and Palestinian refugees are victims of Israel's policy of "ethnic cleansing."

People around the world who are not familiar with the history of the Arab – Jewish conflict from 1917 to 1948, accept the "Invented history" by Palestinians as historical fact and accuse Israel for its treatment of Palestinian – Arabs.

Historical facts, however, are entirely different.

The Catastrophe Called Nakba / Sam Sokol

May 10, 2012
"All of the world knows what happened here in 1948,' Daoud Abu Lebdeh says, while leaning against a table in a coffee shop on the Hebrew University's Mount Scopus campus.

"The Israeli soldiers or the Israeli militias like the Hagana, Kahane, the Irgun and Lehi came here and they [kicked] the people outside from their homes."

Global March to Jerusalem: A Distortion of the Historical Record for Political Purposes / Jeremy Havardi

Mar 30, 2012
Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran. By contrast, it is seared into the Jewish national consciousness. This march is a sham.

The Palestinians and their backers have long resorted to diplomatic war in order to undermine Israel's legitimacy. The Global March to Jerusalem, scheduled for March 30, is a classic example of this tactic. The organisers claim they are seeking "freedom for Jerusalem" and an "end to the Apartheid, ethnic cleansing and Judaisation" affecting the city.

UNRWA: The Palestinians' Worst Enemy / Mudar Zahran

March 21, 2012 at 5:00 am
UNRWA is not there to settle the refugees, it is there not to settle the refugees. The UN now counts as "refugees" entire generations, furious that their ancestors started a war that they then lost, and are now asking to be rewarded diplomatically with what they were unable to seize militarily.

The Historical Reality of the Muslim Conquests / Raymond Ibrahim

March 1, 2012
Because it is now almost axiomatic for American school textbooks to whitewash all things Islamic (see here for example), it may be useful to examine one of those aspects that are regularly distorted: the Muslim conquests.

Few events of history are so well documented and attested to as are these conquests, which commenced soon after the death of the Muslim prophet Muhammad (632) and tapered off circa 750. Large swathes of the Old World—from the India in the east, to Spain in the west—were conquered and consolidated by the sword of Islam during this time.

Apartheid in Israel - One of the Lies Told by Palestinians / Dr. Rivka Shpak Lissak

What is apartheid
Apartheid is the South African term for racial segregation. The term used in the United States is racial segregation. Both terms represent racial regimes of racism and political, social and economical separation between white and black citizens of the same state.

Segregation Laws in the southern states of the United States

All the southern states passed racial segregation laws following the end of the period of reconstruction (1865 – 1877) – the policy ordered by the American Congress at the end of the Civil War (1861 – 1865).

The Disquieting Treatment of Christians by the Palestinians / Michael Curtis

February 15, 2012
Centuries of persecution before Israeli "occupation."
In the voluminous commentaries on the Middle East today very little attention has been given to the sad fate of Christians in the Arab and Muslim countries. Even less attention has been paid to the contrast between the treatment of Christians in Israel and their treatment in Arab countries.

PA:The Protocols of the Elders of Zion an Authentic Document / Itamar Marcus et al

Part Tw0
"Every ten years, a vital aim is achieved. These are the Protocols of the Elders of Zion,
of a century, from 1897 till 1997. They have planned and accomplished. Every ten
years, another aim was achieved, proving their continuity and their power.”7
Everything cited until this point is from Fatah political leaders on PA Fatah-controlled TV and
newspapers. The Hamas movement agrees with this ideology and even formalizes it by
incorporating the Protocols into its ideology and citing it in the official Hamas charter:
Article Thirty Two

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion An Authentict Document / Itamar Marcus et al

Part One
Are the Jewish Elders of Zion conspiring to subjugate the entire world under a Jewish world
It sounds too ridiculous to consider, let alone necessitate a denial. But if you
were a 10th-grade student in the Palestinian Authority (PA), that is precisely what you would
have been learning in your new history book. The schoolbook, published in 2004, by the
Palestinian Ministry of Education, teaches that among the foundations of Zionism, agreed
upon at the First Zionist Congress in 1897, “there is a group of confidential resolutions

Now Is The Time To Fight For Jewish Refugees / Lyn Julius

Contrary to recent misleading press reports, no Jew seeks a “right of return” to Arab states.

Why Did the Arabs Suffer "Nakba" in 1948/ Prof.B.Rubin

Why Did the Arabs Suffer “Nakba” (Disaster) in 1948 and Every Day Since? The Surprising View of the Man Who Coined That Term
February 5, 2012
It’s ironic how the West has adopted the narrative of the very people who caused so much disaster in the Middle East. There are two reasons: The ignorance of the Western “experts” and the domination of the radical interpretations that made the mess in the first place.

Is Israel Engaged in the Genocide of the Palestinian People / DR.Rivka Shpak Lissak

Norman Finkelstein, an American – Jew has devoted his career to prove that Israel is engaged in the genocide of the Palestinian people. He defined Israel as a "Genghis Khan With A Computer and said: "Sometimes I feel that Israel has come out of the boils of hell, a satanic state.".

Antony D. Cooper, A Canadian – Jew and a known novelist decided to search for the truth. He published 4 articles on Haffington Post during December 2011,in which he proved that Norman Finkelstein is an obsessed lier.

Definition of the term Genocide by Cooper:

Auschwitz: Ignoring History, Predicting the Future / Alan Caruba

The late Israeli scholar and diplomat, Abba Eban, (1915-2002) said, “History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all other alternatives.”

Similarly, Winston Churchill said, “You can always count on Americans to do the right thing—after they have tried everything else.” In Churchill’s case, he was referring to the U.S. reluctance to become involved in another war in Europe, but the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 changed that overnight. By 1945, along with our allies, the wars in Europe and Asia were over.

3rd Anniversary of Goldstone Report

3rd Anniversary: Goldstone Report Hits Dead-Ends, But Far From Dead
Jan 13 2012
Yesterday marked the third anniversary of the notorious UN Human Rights Council session that created the Goldstone Report, a 500-page document that excoriated Israel—for defending itself from deadly rockets—while exonerating Hamas.

The core charges of the report—that Israel's leadership intentionally plotted to murder Palestinian civilians, and did so from racist motives—were famously retracted by Judge Goldstone in op-eds published last year in the Washington Post and the New York Times.

Israeli Archaelogists Found One More Proof Against Palestinian Efforts to Rewrite the History of the Land of Israel

Israeli archaeologists find 1,500-year-old kosher 'bread stamp' near Acre
The tiny stamp was used to identify baked products; experts think it belonged to a bakery that supplied kosher bread to the Jews of Acre in the Byzantine period.

A 1,500-year-old seal with the image of the seven-branched Temple Menorah has been discovered near the city of Acre.

The Arab Apartheid / Ben Dror Yemini

The real 'Naqba' is the story of the Arab apartheid. Tens of millions, including Jews, suffered from 'Naqba', which included theft, expulsion and becoming a refugee. Only the Palestinians remain refugees because they were victims of persecution and repression at the hands of Arab states. This is the story of the real 'Naqba'.

Newt Gingrich and the "Invented" Palestinian People / Daniel Pipes

December 10, 2011
The former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and current Republican presidential candidate said yesterday that "there was no Palestine as a state. It was part of the Ottoman Empire. We have invented the Palestinian people, who are in fact Arabs and are historically part of the Arab people, and they had the chance to go many places."

Why Newt Gingrich is Wrong about Palestinian Identity / Ray Cook

10 Dec 2011
Newt Gingrich’s leaked comments which describe Palestinian identity as ‘invented’ have a profound importance in the Middle East conflict and these remarks have to be challenged.

One of the reasons that the Gingrich view has to be confronted is that when Jewish peoplehood is questioned by the Palestinians and their cheerleaders on the Left, Muslims and Arabs remain silent in tacit agreement. The Palestinians’ outrage at Gingrich’s remarks are, therefore, hypocritical.

The Mail Online reports Gingrich’s words here.


The suffering of Jewish refugees from Arab countries must be acknowledged, compensated for their losses.
While serving as a Canadian delegate to the annual inter-parliamentary hearing at the United Nations, I came across an exhibit marking the annual International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The central theme of the exhibit is the Nakba – catastrophe – suffered by the Palestinian people, due to the establishment of the State of Israel.

Jordan is Palestine / Mudar Zaharan

Thus far the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has weathered the storm that has swept across the Middle East since the beginning of the year. But the relative calm in Amman is an illusion. The unspoken truth is that the Palestinians, the country's largest ethnic group, have developed a profound hatred of the regime and view the Hashemites as occupiers of eastern Palestine—intruders rather than legitimate rulers.

Israel's UN Envoy Speech on Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People

Israel's UN envoy raises Jewish refugee issue at UN 'Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People'
02 December 2011
At an event at the United Nations on the 64th anniversary of the vote to partition Mandatory Palestine into a Jewish and an Arab state, (International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People), Israel’s Ambassador Ron Prosor told the UN General Assembly that it exacerbated rather than resolved the Middle East conflict with such commemorations.

The UN And Middle East Refugees:Differential Treatment of Arabs and Jews / Stanley A.Urman


For over half a century, seminal issues in the Arab-Israeli conflict have defied resolution. Negotiations
over security, Jerusalem, refugees, borders, settlements, and so on engender passionate, entrenched
demands and expectations.

There are few international arenas that provide a balanced platform for the discussion of these
contentious issues and in particular, the issue of refugees. This especially applies to the United
Nations and its affiliated entities, where the predominant focus has been on Palestinian refugees.

The Palestinian "Right of Return"Law Leaves no room for Political Flexibility / Jonathan D.Halevi

October 26, 2011
In the long-standing debate regarding the Palestinian political strategy and the prospects of reaching a peaceful settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, some argue that the Palestinian Authority (PA) will ultimately relinquish its demand for the “right of return” of five million Palestinian refugees and their descendents to the sovereign territory of the State of Israel.

Jewish Rights to Palestine are Guaranteed by International Law / Eli.E.Hertz

Jewish Rights to Palestine Are Guaranteed by International Law
October 24, 2011
Eli E. Hertz
Successive Israeli governments have failed to recognize the supreme importance of the "Mandate for Palestine" [24 July, 1922] a historical League of Nations document that set forth the irrevocable Jewish legal rights to settle anywhere in western Palestine, the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, an entitlement unaltered by international law and valid to this day.

Yom Kippur 2011 for Jews and the World / Alen Caruba

Oct.6 2011
Ever since the Yom Kippur War in 1973 in which Egypt and Syria chose the holiest day in the Jewish calendar to attack Israel, I have always felt a frisson of concern as the day approached. For Jews it begins the evening of Friday, October 7, and continues through Saturday for a full day of prayer that ends with the ancient, inspiring expression of hope, “Next year in Jerusalem.”

Islam's History of Forced Conversions / Raymond Ibrahim

September 29, 2011
Finding and connecting similar patterns of behavior throughout Islamic history is one of the most objective ways of determining whether something is or is not part of Muslim civilization.

Consider the issue of forced conversion in Islam, a phenomenon that has a long history with ample precedents. Indeed, from its inception, most of those who embraced Islam did so under duress, beginning with the Ridda wars and during the age of conquests, and to escape dhimmi status. This is a simple fact.

The Historical and Legal Contexts of Israel's Borders / Prof.Nicholas Rostow

Sept.19 2011
More than sixty years after the admission to the United Nations of the state of Israel with no
internationally recognized boundaries,2 a central question remains: what legal rights to territory
does Israel have and, assuming such rights exist, how far do they reach, that is, what are Israel’s
rightful borders? These questions in turn are connected to others: how might Israel’s legal rights
inform an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement and perhaps even a general Arab-Israeli peace
