During the 1948 Palestine war, around 720,000 Palestinian Arabs out of the 900,000 who lived in the territories that became Israel fled or were expelled from their home. The causes of this exodus are controversial and debated by historians.

Israeli Lawmaker calls for Palestinian Genocide
A.Shaked, knesset member of the "religious" nationalist jewish home party openly calls for genocide of Palestinians, declaring "The entire P. people is the enemy, including the elderly and women...villages...infrastructure." calls for the slaughter of "Palestinian mothers who give birth to little snakes" ... is perfectly UN-aopologetic and UN-reprimanded and has thousands of farcebook."likes" for that

ABC "News" (in US) showing pictures of the destruction in Gaza by F-15-fired missiles telling viewers this is in Israel (caused by Hamas' home-made rockets) ...

The jewish population of Europe diminished considerable between ~1933 and 1945. The causes of this exodus are controversial and debated by historians.

No difference than what Hitler did.

The escalation of violence in the territories, Jerusalem and the triangle (of Arab towns in central Israel) are the direct result of the policies of the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, former Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin wrote late Friday in a harshly critical Facebook post.

Former Shin Bet chief criticizes Israeli leadership that is under the 'illusion that the Palestinians will just accept all that we are doing in the West Bank and not respond.'

I just got this "open letter" via Jewish Voice for Peace" and like to share it with you - please go an sign the open letter which I posted under https://www.care2.com/news/member/558572678/3787066.

"My name is Eran Efrati, I am Jewish, a veteran of the Israeli Defense Forces, and a 7th generation Jerusalemite.

What I've seen in Israel over the last few weeks is beyond anything I have witnessed in my life.

I've seen terrified Palestinian children in Hebron and Halhul, sitting on the ruins of their homes.

I've seen mobs in the street chanting "death to Arabs" and pulling out Palestinian men from their stores to beat them as other Israelis stood idly by. I've seen soldiers lined up at the Gaza border, ready at a moment's notice to invade.

And now, like you, I’ve seen the climbing death toll in Gaza, over 100 dead and some 500 injured –all by Israeli missiles, with no end in sight.

As much as it pains me to say it, I don’t think I can do a lot about it. But I believe you can.

American voices - and especially Jewish American ones - are probably the most critical voices in the world right now.

We need you to tell us - Israeli politicians, the Israeli media, Israeli society - that you can't support this. That you can't support human rights violations. That you can't support racism. That you won't support the idea that Jewish lives matter more than Palestinian lives.

Join me and sign this Open Letter now—if they get another 10,000 signatures, Jewish Voice for Peace will take out ads in Haaretz and the Jewish Forward with our message.

We know the roots of this are long and deep. But the truth behind this latest assault has finally coming: as J.J. Goldberg documented in The Forward, the Israeli government lied, and created this situation.

For weeks, the government knew that the three kidnapped teenagers were dead. But they instituted a gag order on the media, lied to Israelis and the world, and falsely claimed the mass arrests and collective punishment of Palestinians was all in the hopes of finding the teenagers alive.

In other words, their chosen response was to kidnap the mind of an entire country.

From the very beginning, this has been about punishing Palestinians. From the beginning, the government has been willing to manipulate and use its own people for that goal.

Overhead, I hear airplanes headed to Gaza all day long, and I know there's nothing I can do to stop them. And now we all know the lengths they've gone to justify this attack, and how fully Israeli society has bought into it. And I don't think we can stop it from within.

But I think you can.

Please join me and sign this statement: We oppose the occupation, the bloodshed, the privileging of Jewish lives over others lives.

Eran Efrati "
