The whole world accepts the false claim that Israel is an illegal ‘occupier’ of the land west of the Jordan River, known as the ‘West Bank’. The world views the Jewish people as thieves who stole this land from the Arabs, who now call themselves ‘Palestinians’. However, nothing could be further from the truth.
In 1922, the League of Nations recognized the historical connection between the Jewish people and the land of Israel, re-named Palestine by the Romans in the year 136 C.E. The League enacted the ‘Mandate for Palestine’, which designated all of Palestine, including the ‘West Bank’, to be reconstituted as the Jewish Homeland. This fact has never changed and is established in international law. Even though the world has since tried to divide this Jewish land in order to give a portion to the Arabs, the Arabs never accepted any offer because they are unwilling to recognize any portion as a Jewish homeland.
Most people in the world are not cognizant of these facts because the facts are not spoken about, not even by the government of Israel. It is time for the Israeli government to speak out. Not refuting the lie that Israel is an occupier results in inadvertent collaboration with those who demonize Israel. This contributes to misunderstanding, hate, anti-Semitism, and terrorism.
This petition implores the Prime Minister and the Government of Israel to acknowledge and publicize to the world the legal rights of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel. Israel does not occupy anyone’s land but her own.
