Arabs were attacking Jews BEFORE ISRAEL RECLAIMED INDEPENDENCE in: Aleppo (1850, 1875), Damascus (1840, 1848, 1890), Beirut (1862, 1874), Dayr al-Qamar (1847), Jaffa ISRAEL (1876), Jerusalem ISRAEL (1847, 1870 and 1895), Cairo (1844, 1890), Mansura (1877), Alexandria (1870, 1882), Damanhur (1871, 1873, 1877, 1891). Each and every one before the first Zionist congress took place in 1897. Again in 1920, 1921, 1927, 1946, 1947… ALL before Israel reclaimed independence.
There are no such things as Palestinians. Until 1947, “Palestinian” was a derogatory term for Jew and the Palestinian flag of Britain had a Jewish star. Arafat was born in Cairo Egypt. The DNA of the Arabs in Israel traces RECENTLY to the Arabian Peninsula. They’re migrants, not natives.
Islam is a radical death cult that kills “non-believers” around the world, even other sects of Islam. This isn’t about Israel, or settlements, but about a radical death cult called Islam.
The Jews have lived in Israel for 3000+ continuous years, 1800+ years before Islam was invented by Mohammed.
Here is just the common era, all from verifiable outside sources:
135 CE : Jewish residents, led by Simon Bar Kochba, revolt against invading Romans. Hadrian orders Jerusalem renamed Aelia Capitolina, and the country, from “Judea” to Syria Palestina.
200 CE: Judah the Nasi completes the Mishna. You can visit his home and Synagogue, still standing.
300–400.CE : Jews, living in Galilee, Byzantine period, create “Jerusalem Talmud” also referred to then as “Palestine Talmud.”
614 CE : Local Jews in Galilee fight alongside Persians in 614, and are given control over Jerusalem again.
1099 CE :Jews defended Haifa against the Crusaders.
1100s CE: Mukadassi describes the Jews as the dyers, the tanners, and the bankers in the community.
~1130 CE: Maimonides writes about living in Israel. Documents still exist.
1267 CE — RaMbaN settled in with the Jewish community in the Old City of Jerusalem. This remains stable until British-led Arab Legion from Transjordan (Now Jordan) attacks 700 years later.
- 1600 CE — Pilgrim Arnold Van Harff reports he had found many Jews in Jerusalem and they spoke Hebrew. ( The Pilgrimage of Arnold van Harff (London, 1946), p. 217)
- 1516 CE, the Ottoman Turks were tolerant to the Jews. Thirty communities, urban and rural, are recorded at the opening of the Ottoman era. They include Haifa, Sh’chem, Hebron, Ramleh, Jaffa, Gaza, Jerusalem, and Safed;
- In 1577 CE, a Hebrew printing press was established in Safed. It’s the first press in Asia.
- 1563 CE — Rabbi Joseph Caro compiled the Shulhan Aruch, the codification of Jewish observance based largely on Maimonides codification of the Talmud.
- 1600 CE — Turkish archives record a Jewish population in Safed of ~30,000. The empire’s documents list Jews involvement in the production of wheat and barley and cotton, vegetables and olives, vines and fruit, pulse and sesame.
1674 CE : Jesuit Father Michael Naud writes that the Jews are, “paying heavily to the Turk for their right to stay here. — They prefer being prisoners in Jerusalem to enjoying the freedom they could acquire elsewhere… The love of the Jews for the Holy Land, which they lost through their betrayal [of Christ], is unbelievable.” ( R. P. Michael Naud, Voyage Nouveau de la Terre-Sainte (Paris, 1702), pp. 58, 563.)
1810 CE : Avraham Yaari writes, “ Truly, how marvellous it is to five in the good country. Truly, how wonderful it is to love Our Country. — Even in her ruin there is none to compare with her, even in her desolation she is unequalled, in her silence there is none like her. Good are her ashes and her stones.”
1867 CE — Mark Twain visits Israel and writes (Innocents Abroad, Chapter 52) about meeting Jews in Shechem who have not changed customs for hundreds of years. He says they recite their lineage back many generations by memory and seeing them in their ancient ways is like seeing a Mastodon.
