History isn't on Palestinian's Side by Victor Davis Hanson
"For the last three decades Palestinian terrorists and their sponsoring brothers have murdered Americans abroad...The problem...is not that Americans have forgotten Palestinian acts, but that we remember them all too well."

Which came first: Terrorism or "Occupation"?
"The basic premise of the Palestinian claim - that the 'occupation' causes terrorism - is historically flawed. Arab and Palestinian terrorism against Israel existed prior to the beginning of Israeli control over the West Bank and Gaza as a result of the Six Day War of June 1967, and even prior to the establishment of the State of Israel in May 1948."

Excerpts about Zionism by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
". . . You declare, my friend, that you do not hate the Jews, you are merely 'anti-Zionist.' And I say, let the truth ring forth from the high mountain tops, let it echo through the valleys of God's green earth: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews--this is God's own truth."

Israel has the most humane army in the world.

(May 16, 2002. Credit: Eitan Behar) Take a good hard look at this photo. It's from Maariv, an Israeli daily. The caption reads: "IDF soldier provides water to one of the terrorists who were captured on their way to carry out a bombing in Israel."

The facts: there were 5 of them. 2 were carrying explosive belts. There was a further 17 kilograms of TNT in the trunk of their car.

In my opinion, it is deserving of a Pulitzer Prize...because it captures the complete essence of the behavior of IDF soldiers throughout Operation Defensive Shield. These are the kind of soldiers who captured Jenin...who fought around the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem...who surrounded the Muk'ata in Ramallah and cleaned it up before departing.
