180 years of excuses. Jews get murdered and always they make exuses. Just this week @BBCTwo get told by an Arab the Jews are the target & #BBC covers it up. Elsewhere @RashidaTlaib distorts history. All to hide the real cause of the conflict - Arab violence against Jews.
During the Second Intifada - media & politicians were adamant total desperation was the reason Arab terrorists killed Jews in suicide attacks. Yet the 2 bombers at Mike's Place were British , how were they more desperate that you or I? Let us look closer at these excuses-
2019 & Israeli civilians are murdered as 100s of rockets are fired at Israel. This as violent riots on Gaza's border are painted as peaceful by the media. The excuse? Gaza is a pressure cooker. Logically, if you remove the pressure the killing stops. So let's check that shall we?
It is February 7 2019. Ori Ansbacher is raped & murdered. Full details of the brutal killing are withheld. The terrorist explicitly said he entered Israel with a knife to kill a Jew. The BBC didn't make up excuses - or mistranslate - they didn't even bother to report it.
In October 2015 - the 'knife intifada' was in full swing. We were told then that the reason Arabs were murdering innocent Jews was because the ‘status quo’ on the Temple Mount was being threatened. If that is true - then let us step back a year.
It is 2014. The status quo on the Temple Mount is not being threatened. There's an attack by a 16-year-old terrorist who stabs Jews at a supermarket in Mishor Adumim. Western media say it was because of frustration from the Gaza conflict. If this is true, let us go further back.
March 2004. There's no seige on Gaza. No pressure cooker. 2 Gaza terrorists kill 10 Israelis in Ashdod. The reason? Gaza is occupied. So Israel withdrew from Gaza, dismantled settlements & what happened? They received Hamas rockets in return - but anyway, let us look further back
Oct 2000, Gaza conflicts are a decade away. Vadim Nurzhitz & Yossi Avrahami ‘had their eyes gouged out & were disembowelled’ by an Arab lynch mob. The given excuse for the violence of the second Intifada was Ariel Sharon's foot on Temple Mount. If true, let us go further back.
Sept 1999. Ariel Sharon's foot has not yet gone to Temple Mount. Sharon Steinmetz & Yehiel Finfeter were stabbed. The Arab said he murdered them 'because they were Jews', the media had none of it. They blamed the stagnation of the peace process. If true, let us go further back.
It's late 1993 and the stagnation of the peace process is yet to be seen. 'Hope' is now the keyword. Yigal Vaknin was stabbed to death in an orchard. Hamas took responsibility. Media and politicians said they just did it to stop the peace process. If true, let us go further back.
March 1989. The Oslo Peace Process has not begun. An Arab worker in Tel Aviv stabs Israeli civilians on the Jewish holiday of Purim. Western press blame frustration at the occupation & settlements for the violence of the first Intifada. If that is the case let us go further back.
It is March 9, 1978. A decade before the intifada. Terrorists hijack a bus carrying families on an outing. 38 Israeli civilians, including 13 children, were killed. The excuse? Terrorists killed the Jews to stop peace talks with Egypt. If this is the case, let us go further back.
It is 1966. There is no 'occupation' and no settlements. The Arabs massacre Jews on trains, buses & attack Jewish farmers. Western media placed the blame for the violence on frustration at the refugees created during the War of 1948. If that is the case, let us go further back.
December 2nd 1947. There are no refugees, no occupation. Israel doesn't exist. It is 3 days after @UN voted for Partition. Arabs riot in Jerusalem. 8 Jews are killed. Western media says this is just an Arab reaction to partition. If this is the case, let us go further back.
Nov 1941. No refugees, occupation, Israel or partition. Arab leader Haj Amin al-Husseini meets Hitler. He helped form Muslim Waffen SS units and prevent 10000s of Jews escaping. Western media don't make excuses for this, they just ignore it. Which means we must look further back
It is April 1936. The start of the Arab revolt. By the end of the first week, 17 Jews were murdered. Media place the blame for the violence on opposition to Jewish immigration that was caused by Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi Germany. If this is the case, let us go further back.
August 1929. There is no partition, no Israel & no refugees. Abraham Mizrachi is stabbed to death - within days- there are massacres of Jews in Jerusalem Hebron & Tzfat. The excuse? The threat Arabs felt a Jewish presence brought. If this is the case, let us go even further back
It is 1920. There is no partition, no Israel, no refugees &,little immigration. The Neba Musa festival. Jerusalem Riots had Arabs murdering Jews again. This time the excuse was disappointment at the non-fulfilment of independence. If this is the case, let's go even further back.
1910. We have left British Palestine, because it does not yet exist. There's no promise of independence, no Balfour & no Mandate. Ariel Sharon's foot has not yet been born. We are in Shiraz for a massacre of Jews. The excuse? A blood libel. Let us look further back
We travel before the modern Zionist movement began. To the Ottoman Mutasarrifate of Jerusalem. The British are flooded with request from Jews to protect them. There are pogroms in Jerusalem in 1870 & 1895 and in Jaffa in 1876. The excuse long forgotten. Let us look further back.
It is 1834. Six years before the murder of innocent Jews in the Damascus blood libel. A pogrom occurs in Tzfat. Jews are killed and raped and homes and synagogues are destroyed. Other pogroms take place in the ME. In places like Aleppo, Beirut, Cairo, Mansura & Alexandria
Before partition, before Israel, before settlements, before refugees, before Sharon, before the ‘wall’, before Hamas, before Balfour & before Zionism. In the beginning there was an Arab with a knife and he murdered a Jew simply because he was a Jew. Enough with the excuses

There's too much media distortion. We have to fight back. Enough with the excuses & enough with the lies.
