Myths and Lies of the ‘Palestinians’
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it..." Joseph Goebbels, Nazi propagandist
...but if it's printed in the newspapers and seen on TV, then it gotta be correct, right? Read on.
"OCCUPATION". Oh boy. Wish I had a nickel for each time I heard that term thrown around! This harsh, loaded and damaging term unfortunately has worked its way into the daily discourse about Israel to the point where people use it automatically and without considering its ramifications. By using this expression, we unwittingly do our enemies' dirty work by not only delegitimizing the Jewish claim to Judea and Samaria (the so-called "occupied territories") but by also weakening our claim to all of Israel, in its entirety. Because when you think about it, if the Jewish People have no claim to ancient Biblical Shechem (Nablus), the central Samarian city linked to Jewish history since the time of Abraham, then they certainly have no claim to Tel Aviv, a modern day creation of no historical, national or religious significance. This is a crucial point that the Israeli left has never seemed to understand. In fact, there is no and never was any "occupation" of "Palestine"!
This patently false charge has NO BASIS in either fact or law, as explained in this discussion, “‘Think Israel, “Is Israel occupying the West Bank, a Legal Discourse on Occupation,” by Howard Grief,’ and has been hugely damaging to Israel's morale, self-image, sense of purpose and of course its public image. For a fascinating discussion about how Israel got really bad legal advice from then Military Advocate-General Meir Shamgar, which gave birth to this pernicious myth, read this article titled, “NATIV Online, ‘The Origin of the Occupation Myth’, by Howard Grief”.
"Green line" (1967 "borders") Myth:
Kishkushim is wrong!
The Green Line, which separates Israel proper from Judea, Samaria and Gaza, is nothing more than the 1949 cease fire line. It's not a recognized international border and never was. It was always meant to be temporary and non-binding. In fact, as a result of the 1994 peace agreement (see Article 3) with Jordan, the Green Line was effectively erased and replaced with a "mauve" international border line on the map corresponding to the Jordan River.
Repeat: the importance placed on the Green Line as a border is misleading and wrong and is just a ploy to compel Israel to withdraw back to the indefensible 1949 armistice line. The true internationally recognized eastern boundary of Israel is the Jordan River. You've heard the lies and the spin, now learn the facts in the article by Dore Gold titled, “The Myth of the 1967 Borders”.

"Demographic Threat" Myth:
The political left got cute and sold the Israeli people this bill of goods. Good thing somebody finally woke up and decided to count the change:
