Abstract

"I am in the U.S. until February. A few weeks ago, I went to our embassy in Washington and offered to speak on Israel's behalf, to present the true story of what's going on, to counter the very effective job being done by the Palestinians of making it appear as if they are Davids fighting Goliath, and we are not getting the truth out. But the people at the embassy just shrugged."

He knows that in 1948 some 630,000 Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by their leaders, who promised to purge the land of Jews. Instead, they became the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed into their own peoples' countries.

Finally, he knows that the United Nations has passed hundreds of resolutions directed solely against Israel, but was utterly silent while, between 1948 and 1967, over 50 Jerusalem synagogues and an ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives were destroyed and desecrated by the Arabs, who also prevented Jews from visiting their holy shrines.
