did you know?

by Janet Thursday, May. 02, 2002 at 7:39 PM

Did you know that the first act of terrorism in the Middle East was committed by the Jewish Irgun Zvai Leumi terrorist group when they bombed the British Embassy in 1946, killing 91 people?

Did you know that when the Palestine Problem was created by Britain in 1917, more than 90% of the population of Palestine were Arabs, and that there were only 56,000 Jews in Palestine?



Did you know that when Britain passed the Palestinian Problem on to the United Nations for handling in 1947, that the Zionists owned only 6% of Palestine and that this land was taken from the Palestinians by the British government?

Did you know that Israel's occupation of Palestinian land is illegal and that under international law Palestinians have the right to defend themselves against Israel's illegal occupation by any means whatsoever?

Did you know that Israel allots 85% of Palestinian water resources for Jews and the remaining 15% is divided among all Palestinians in the territories? For example in Hebron, 85% of the water is given to about 400 settlers, while 15% must be divided among Hebron's 120,000 Palestinians?

Did you know that Israeli military checkpoints surround every Palestinian population center in violation of the Oslo Accords? That in numerous Palestinian towns they must pass through a military check point just to cross the street and that the Israeli military routinely makes them wait for hours - without cause or justification - before allowing them to proceed?

Did you know that non-Jewish Israelis cannot buy or lease land in Israel?

Did you know that Palestinian license plates in Israel are color coded to distinguish Jews from non-Jews?

Did you know the Israelis build roads through Palestinian owned territories that only Jews can drive on?

Did you know that Jerusalem, both East and West, is considered by the entire world community, including the United States, to be occupied territory and NOT part of Israel?

Did you know that Palestinian Christians are considered the "living stones" of Christianity because they are the direct descendants of the disciples of Jesus Christ?

Did you know that Israel stands in defiance of 69 United Nations Security Council Resolutions?

Did you know that the right of self-determination is guaranteed to every human being under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (December, 1948), yet Palestinians were/are expected to negotiate for this right under the Oslo Accords?

Did you know Israel has imposed a system of apartheid upon the Arabs who stayed in their homeland? More than 90% of these Arabs live in "security zones;" they alone live under martial law, restricting their freedom to travel from village to village or from town to town; their children are denied equal opportunities for education; and they are denied decent opportunities for work, and the right to receive "equal pay for equal work?"

Did you know that Israel routinely confiscates Palestinian bank accounts, businesses, and land and refuses to pay compensation to those who suffer the confiscation?

Did you know that it was not until 1988 that Israelis were barred from running "Jews Only" job ads?

Did you know that Israel is the only country in the Middle East that has nuclear weapons?

Did you know that Israel is the only country in the Middle East that refuses to sign the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and bars international inspections from its sites?

Did you know that Israel illegally obtained the technology to build its nuclear weapons by spying on the U.S. Government in the 1960's?

Did you know that Israel currently occupies territories of sovereign nations (Lebanon and Syria) in defiance of United Nations Security Council resolutions?

Did you know that Israel blew up an American diplomatic facility in Egypt (1954) and attacked a

U.S. ship (1967) in international waters, killing 33 and wounding 177 American sailors?

Did you know that the second most powerful lobby in the United States, according to a recent Fortune magazine survey of Washington insiders, is the Israeli American Israel Public Affairs Commission? In other words, out of all of the huge U.S. corporations and special interest groups, that the AIPA "contributes" more money to political campaigns and lobbying campaigns than all but one other organization? Under these circumstances, do you think it is possible for our political leaders to act without bias with regard to Israel?

Did you know the United States awards Israel billion in aid each year?

Did you know that yearly US aid to Israel exceeds the aid the US grants to the whole African continent?

Did you know that four prime ministers of Israel (Begin, Shamir, Rabin, and Sharon) have taken part in either bomb attacks on civilians, massacres of civilians, or forced expulsions of civilians from their villages?

Did you know that Israel's current prime minister, Ariel Sharon, was found by an Israeli court to be "personally responsible" for the Sabra and Shatilla massacres in Lebanon in which thousands of unarmed Palestinian civilian refugees were slaughtered in 1982?

Did you know that the Israeli Foreign Ministry pays two American public relations firms to promote Israel to Americans? (Now you know why U.S. media is so biased in favor of Israel).

Did you know that Sharon's coalition government includes a party Molodet: which advocates expelling all Palestinians from the occupied Palestinian territories?

Did you know that Israel's (illegal) settlement-building increased in the eight years since Oslo?

Did you know that settlement building under Barak doubled compared to settlement building under Netanyahu?

Did you know that the Palestinians have already accepted Israel's existence on 78% of what was

Palestine. Bible: God said to Abraham, "Unto thy seed, I will give thy land." Abraham had two sons. Ismael-the Arab son, and Isaac-the Jewish son. So even if one wants to go to the Bible, the land would belong to both.

Did you know that despite a ban on torture by Israel's High Court of Justice, torture has continued by Shin Bet interrogators on Palestinian prisoners?

Did you know that Palestinian refugees make up the largest portion of the refugee population in the world?

Did you know that Palestinians have the highest ratio of PhDs per capita in the world?

Did you know that today's Israel sits on the former sites of more than 400 destroyed Palestinian villages, and that the Israelis renamed almost every physical site in the country to cover up the traces?

Did you know that Israel has for decades routinely sent assassins in to other countries to kill its

political enemies?

Did you know that high-ranking military officers in the Israeli Defense Forces have admitted publicly that unarmed prisoners of war were Executed by the IDF?

Did you know that Israel refuses to prosecute its soldiers who have acknowledged executing civilians and prisoners of war?
