Arab Muslims in Israel

Are the Arabs who live in Israel proper full citizens of the State with full rights of citizenship?

Of the six million people living in Israel, about one million are Arab Israelis who have full citizenship rights. This population is comprised of Bedouins, Druze and Palestinians Arabs whose families chose to remain in Israel after 1948. There are a number of Arab representatives in Israel's parliament, the Knesset. Because of continuing security issues, Palestinian Arabs are not conscripted into the army. Bedouins may volunteer and Druze Arabs are conscripted by their own choice.

While there are cities such as Haifa and Akko where Jewish and Arab Israelis live together, most Arab Israelis live in their own villages, towns or neighborhoods. Until college, they are educated in separate schools. There is clearly a disparity of opportunity, and correcting this is on the agenda of many Israeli officials as well as the worldwide Jewish community.

There are numerous examples of co-existence programs which bring Jewish and Arab neighbors together to learn about one another. Many are supported by grants from American Jewish communities including our own Jewish Community Federation.

..... the Statement that the Koran has the mention of JERUSALEM is a dream. It is only once mentioned that there was an assumption, that Mohammed in HIS DREAM did decent in a temple far away ... he also talks in his Suras only of would could be assumed to be possible Jerusalem
He makes it look as if Mohammed talked to Moses.???????? Mohammed ???
Judaism existed before Islam was born ......
We quote here now a couple of things Joseph Farah an American Arab journalist wrote and knows about he's from A Free Press for a Free People
and all experts agree with him.

What about Islam's holy sites? There are none in Jerusalem.

Shocked? You should be. I don't expect you will ever hear this brutal truth from anyone else in the international media. It's just not politically correct.

Arabs say: the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem represent Islam's third most holy sites."
Not true.

In fact, the Koran says nothing about Jerusalem. It mentions Mecca hundreds of times. It mentions Medina countless times. It never mentions Jerusalem. With good reason. There is no historical evidence to suggest Mohammed ever visited Jerusalem.

So how did Jerusalem become the third holiest site of Islam?

Muslims today
cite a vague passage in the Koran, the seventeenth Surah, entitled "The Night Journey."
It relates that in a dream or a vision Mohammed was carried by night "from the sacred temple to the temple that is most remote, whose precinct we have blessed, that we might show him our signs. ..."
In the seventh century, some Muslims identified the two temples mentioned in this verse as being in Mecca and Jerusalem.

And that's as close as Islam's connection with Jerusalem gets -- myth, fantasy, wishful thinking. Meanwhile, Jews can trace their roots in Jerusalem back to the days of Abraham.

Isn't it interesting that prior to the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, there was no serious movement for a Palestinian homeland?

In the Six-day War, Israel captured Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem.
But they didn't capture these territories from Yasser Arafat.
They captured them from Jordan's King Hussein.

One can't help but wonder why all these Palestinians suddenly discovered their national identity after Israel won the war.

The truth is that Palestine is no more real than Never-Never Land. The first time the name was used was in 70 AD when the Romans committed genocide against the Jews, smashed the Temple and declared the land of Israel would be no more.

From then on, the Romans promised, it would be known as Palestine. The name was derived from the Philistines, a Goliathian people conquered by the Jews centuries earlier.

It was a way for the Romans to add insult to injury. They also tried to change the name of Jerusalem to Aelia Capitolina, but that had even less staying power.

Palestine has never existed -- before or since -- as an autonomous entity. It was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire and, briefly, by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their homeland.

There is no language known as Palestinian. There is no distinct Palestinian culture. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians.

Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians (another recent invention), Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 percent of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one-tenth of 1 percent of the landmass.

But that's too much for the Arabs. They want it all. And that is ultimately what the fighting in Israel is about today. Greed. Pride. Envy. Covetousness. No matter how many land concessions the Israelis make, it will never be enough.

So what's the solution to the Middle East mayhem? Well, frankly, I don't think there is a man-made solution to the violence. But, if there is one, it needs to begin with truth. Pretending will only lead to more chaos. Treating a 5,000-year-old birthright backed by overwhelming historical and archaeological evidence equally with illegitimate claims, wishes and wants gives diplomacy and peacekeeping a bad name.

Finally here is something to ponder about:
Crash Course in Middle East History

Nationhood and Jerusalem
Israel became a nation in 1312 BCE -- 2,000 years before the rise of Islam.
Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.

Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BCE, the Jews have had dominion over the land for 1,000 years, with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.
The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 CE lasted no more than 22 years.

For over 3,000 years, Jerusalem has always been the Jewish capital.
Jerusalem has never once been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. In the 20 years that Jordan occupied Jerusalem (1948-1967), they never sought to make it their capital, nor did Palestinians demand it as theirs.

Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in the Jewish Bible.
Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.

King David founded the city of Jerusalem 3,000 years ago.
Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.

Jews pray facing Jerusalem, wherever they are in the world.
Moslems at the mosque in Jerusalem pray with their backs toward Jerusalem.

Arab and Jewish Refugees
In 1948, approximately 630,000 Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty-eight percent left without ever seeing an Israeli soldier.
In that same era, approximately 630,000 Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to brutality, persecution and pogroms.

Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey.

Arab refugees were intentionally not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of 100 million worldwide refugees since World War Two, these Arabs are the only refugee group in the world that has not been integrated into their own peoples' lands.

The Arab - Israeli Conflict
The Arab world includes 22 separate nations.
There is only one Jewish nation.
The Arab nations initiated five wars against Israel, and lost.
Israel defended itself each time and won.

The PLO Charter still calls for the destruction of the state of Israel.
Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them with weapons.

Under Israeli rule, all Moslem and Christian holy sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.
Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated: all synagogues in the Old City were torched, and tombstones from the ancient Mount of Olives cemetery was used to pave roads and build latrines. Jews were also denied access to places of worship at the Western Wall, Tomb of Rachel, Tomb of Joseph, and cave of the Patriarchs.

"Bear in mind the words of Moses to his people. He said: 'Remember, my people, the favor which Allah has bestowed upon you. He has raised up prophets among you, made you into kings, and given to you that which He has given to no other nation. Enter, my people, the Holy Land which Allah has assigned for you. Do not turn back, or you shall be ruined.'" (Koran 5:20-21); and: "Thereafter We said to the Children of Israel: 'Dwell securely in the Promised Land, and when the Promise of the Hereafter is near fulfillment, We shall gather you all together.'" (Koran 17:104)
