Watch: People from all over the world are protesting against the UN
Israel is under unprecedented assault at the UN Human Rights Council. The Jewish state alone will be targeted over the entire day—in seven biased reports. A new Commission of Inquiry will present its absurd report accusing Israeli soldiers of "crimes against humanity" for defending the Gaza border. The UNHRC will call on the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights "to manage the dossiers on alleged perpetrators [IDF soldiers], to be provided to... the International Criminal Court."
As you can see in post below Today, thousands are speaking out against the UN Human Rights Council’s anti-Israel obsession. Join the campaign worldwide. #EnoughIsEnough We’re calling on you, to speak up for justice and remind the UN that their job is to fight for human rights -- not to bash Israel.
1. Take a photo of yourself holding one an #EnoughIsEnough sign with something that represents YOUR country (passport, flag, etc.) 2. Post on social media and tag the UNHRC.
Israel wants to exist as a Jewish state and to live in peace. Israel also recognizes the right of Palestinians to have their own state and to live in peace. The problem, however, is that most Palestinians and many other Muslims and Arabs, do not recognize the right of the Jewish state of Israel to exist.
Israel was founded in 1948, and since that auspicious day, its neighbors have tried to destroy it, again and again.
In 1967, the dictator of Egypt, Gamal Abdel Nasser, announced his plan, in his words, “to destroy Israel.” He placed Egyptian troops on Israel’s border, and armies of surrounding Arab countries were also mobilized to attack. Israel begged Jordan’s king not to join the war. But he did. And only because of that did Israel take control of Jordanian land, specifically the “West Bank” of the Jordan River.
It’s important to remember that today’s disputed territories which Israel obtained in 1967 were conquered in a defensive war from Jordan…not from any state of Palestine.
In fact, Judea and Samaria (The West Bank and East Jerusalem) have never been part of a Palestinian state, nor was there a Palestinian state previously.
In addition, the Gaza Strip never belonged to a Palestinian state, Gaza Strip was conquered by Israel in a defensive war from Egypt.
Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring Arab state But we must not forget what happened when Israel gave Gaza to the Palestinians.
The residents of Gaza voted as a terrorist organization, Hamas controlled the Gaza Strip.
Peace will come when the Arab states understand that Israel is not going anywhere.
