Israel's Land Concessions for Peace, 1967-2011

Americans Stand with Israel

USA Stands with Israel posted this map, which shows that Israel gave up control of the Sinai, Gaza, Southern Lebanon and much of the West Bank over the years. Rather than falsely accusing Israel as a land-grabbing rogue state, it accurately shows Israel as perhaps the only state in history that has voluntarily given up more than two-thirds of the areas it controls in exchange for nothing more than a paper agreement - or sometimes not even that. All at the risk of serious security concerns for her people, no less.

This is all because Israel wants, desperately, to live in real peace with her neighbors. This desire is not reciprocated by those neighbors, unfortunately.

The real map shows the truth of Israel's incredible concessions in the often vain hope for peace.

During a conversation with an Israeli friend, he said he did not understand when, or in what time in history, have the people of Israel not made concessions on land of Israel, for the benefit of another nation, or another state, and for the sake of peace? He observed that the Arabs want to conquer the world, and I could only agree and add that there is Islam terrorism throughout the world, but first and foremost, the Arabs claim the land of Israel for their own - so much so, that they make maps that exclude Israel and write "Palestine" in its place. "Why it is not clear enough to all the world that they should be on the side of the people of Israel?"  Why not to be on our side ?!", he asked me.

Perhaps my answer is too simplistic, and I am dismayed that I cannot comfort or encourage my friend.  

However, I told him that just as the Arab nations - all 22 of them - use the Palestinians as a propaganda tool in order to rob the Jews of their homeland, so do world leaders use the same Arab "Palestinians" as an excuse to condemn Israel, by taking the side of the Arabs. 

Why else would the West, the EU and UN constantly condemn Israel for a lack of peace in the Middle East?  Why would Germany, speaking for the EU, request that Israel stop stamping her exports from Judea and Samaria "Made in Israel"?  Germany is aware that if Israel refuses her request/demand, it would have an impact on Israel's economy.  I consider this a bully tactic, to force Israel into making a concession that implies Judea and Samaria are not a part of Israel's land.  (File that under "Lies, not history").

Why would Secretary of State John Kerry accuse Israel of a "failure to make peace", blaming Israel for fueling extremism around the world?, if not Kerry's open bias against the only democratic country in the Middle East, in favor of the Arabs?

No matter how much the Israeli people contribute to this world, in technology, science, medical discoveries, music and all things beautiful, the world chooses the side of the Arabs.  And I have to ask, like my Israeli friend, "Why?"

In spite of all the words that pour out of the White House about the so-called contributions of Islam, and the apologies President Obama has made to the Arab world for the past five years, what Obama considers the "mistakes" of America are not the truth, facts or history of these United States and I wonder if anyone in D.C. has privately mentioned that to him. 

President Obama's first love is Islam, and in his private life, that is perfectly acceptable.  But, when it interferes with foreign policy, undermines relationships with our allies, attempts to re-write the history of the United States for the sake of Islam and encourages and comforts our enemies, then it is time to say "Enough"!  

I refer you to Daniel Greenfield's article Obama Inc. Leaks Details of Israeli Secret Base, in closing, to remind everyone that this on-going and ourtrageous "leak" from the White House to the ears of our enemies, is just another arrow shot towards Israel and I'm not speaking about the "Arrow 3" defense system.  

Why?  Why does this world support Islamic terrorists while condemning Israel?  Is it because they hold the same hatred towards the Jews that Islam has held since the 6th Century?  Is it becuase 70 years after WWII, the world has forgotten the insanity of a Dictator who thought he could rule the world, while removing SIX MILLION Jews from the face of this earth?  In the end, that coward chose suicide, unwilling to face the reality of his crimes and  I believe those who choose the same road are also committing suicide - a slow death, for supporting evil over righteousness.

The video is a good example of the "West", under the Obama administration, standing for the Arabs, while blaming Israel:
