Why has Israel been able to dominate and humiliate its Muslim neighbors?
- RebeccaLv 610 months agoFavorite Answer
Give me a break. Israel "dominates" and "humiliates" its Muslim neighbors? Do you know how many Palestinians have daily jobs in Israel, Palestinians who travel from Gaza and the West Bank as far as Tel Aviv and Netanya, Haifa, and beyond for work every single day? Israel provides a monthly stipend to Palestinian families, a certain shekel amount each month for each kid. Israel provides medical care to Palestinians. Palestinian women have their babies in the same hospitals as Israeli women do, and they're not segregated. I know this for a FACT because my daughter was born in Israel, and my roommates were an Israeli woman and a Palestinian woman. I am neither Israeli nor Palestinian.
What do the Israelis get in return? Blown up. Shot. Sniper attacks. Katyusha rocket attacks. Bus bombings. Restaurant bombings, people just eating lunch or dinner or celebrating Passover. Too many bus bombings to count. The Dophinarium discotheque. Who were the victims? A bunch of 15-year-old girls out dancing on a Friday night.
We don't like to talk about that, though, do we, because the truth is scary and frightening and it doesn't offer much consolation to liars. Like when the American media refused to report on the 10-month old baby who was the victim of a sniper attack. Sniper shot that baby girl in the head in her mother's arms. But you're okay with that? What fool could be okay with that? I remember the bombing of a school bus filled with five to nine-year-old children. Those images are stuck in my head for forever.
The problem YOU personally have, Coward, is that there are people who actually do know the truth, people who have seen first hand that what you say is not true, people who believed one way and then went there to see what the truth of it really was, and was surprised to learn that the "poor Muslim/evil Israeli" narrative just isn't true.
You can listen to that congresswoman all day and all night, but even you have to admit that the Muslim headscarf MIGHT be an indication of an underlying preconceived bias against Israel?
One more thing, which is really funny. People like to *say* Bethlehem is a Palestinian town, but it's not. Bethlehem is also called The City of David. Why? Because that's where King David was born. It is the territory of the Tribe of Judah. That's why Jesus was born in Bethlehem, because when Herod called for a census and everyone had to go to their hometowns, Mary had to go to Bethlehem, because she was of the House of David, whose territory was Bethlehem.

There is zero evidence for:
> Any such "domination".
> Any such "humiliation".
The reference to religion is irrelevant to the Palestinian war of ethnic-hatred and territorial ambitions for the land of Israel.
The use of the word "neighbours" could only logically refer to neighbouring countries.
Could it be that the Asker resents the fact that Israel has, and continues to, defend itself successfully against attack?
Israel has peace treaties with:
The Arab Republic of Egypt.
The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
In 1967 Israel gained control of the West Bank and Gaza Strip (from the previous Jordanian and Egyptian occupation respectively) and as an attempt by Israel at “land for peace” under the Oslo Accords, Israel later granted the Palestinians autonomy for part of the West Bank (40%) and the whole of the Gaza Strip, as part of a peace process which anticipated further negotiations for a peace treaty.
Therefore until any peace treaty that may say otherwise, those areas remains Israel’s.
Under the Oslo Accords Israel retains full control of Area C of the West Bank (due to Palestinian breach of the Accords in failing to stop hostile acts - see further below), and in which are the Israeli homes ("settlements") permitted under the Accords.
The Oslo Accords do NOT forbid Israel from building homes / “settlements” in Area C of the West Bank.
The following extracted information about the governance and percentage of land areas of the West Bank, is from:
The Oslo II Accord covers both Gaza and the West Bank.
The Oslo Accords divided the West Bank into three administrative divisions:
Areas A, B and C:
Area A is exclusively administered by the Palestinian Authority, and is approximately 18% of the West Bank.
Area B (Palestinian civil control and joint Israeli-Palestinian security control), is administered by both the Palestinian Authority and Israel, and is approximately 22% of the West Bank.
Area C (full Israeli civil and security control), which contains the Israeli settlements, is administered by Israel.
Area C was intended to be: “... gradually transferred to Palestinian jurisdiction ...” (that is autonomy, not sovereignty) (Article XI). Under the Oslo Accords Area C remains under Israeli control because the Palestinians breached the terms of the Accords:
Source: Choose the “Oslo II Agreement” link on the following webpage:
How did the Palestinians breach the terms of the Accords?
By failing to: “... prevent acts of terrorism crime and hostilities ...” (Article XV).
This is quite clear because:
1) The Palestinian Authority lost control of Gaza to Hamas, which does not recognise the Oslo Accords, is dedicated to Israel’s destruction, and carries out hostile acts; for example numerous barrages of rockets fired at Israeli cities.
(Please see the source which I have put into the "Sources" area of this answer.)
2) The “Palestinian Authority” (funded by the “European Union”) and the “Palestinian Liberation Organization” by Palestinian Law, pay a reward-“pension” for the murder of Israeli Jewish civilians including children (see example below).
Israel has already made all the concessions that can be reasonably expected of any nation seeking peace, under the Oslo Accords – Consider: How else did the Palestinians lay their hands on 40% of the West Bank and the whole of Gaza?
Once the Palestinians had tricked Israel into giving them autonomy of part of the West Bank and the whole of Gaza under the Oslo Accords, the Palestinians since:
> Do not sincerely negotiate any peace treaty.
> Make an unverifiable false-claim to ALL the land of Israel.
> Want to expel the Jews from the Jews ancestral-homeland of Israel.
> Have expelled any Jewish population from all areas under Palestinian control and then falsely-claimed “Apartheid” against Israel !
> Consider themselves at war with Israel.
> Attack Israeli Jewish civilians as policy including children (see example below).
No wonder anti-Semites display such emotional-support for the Palestinians!
Due to anti-Semitism (about which they may also be in denial) many people, possibly hoodwinked by the successful Palestinian propaganda-lies, do not require any reasonable or proper moral standard from the Palestinians.
The Palestinians are paid a reward-“pension” to murder Israeli Jewish civilians, including children:
- - - - Start of extract: - - - -
“The Palestinian Authority Martyrs Fund is a fund operated by the Palestinian Authority for the purpose of paying a monthly cash stipend to the families of Palestinians killed, injured or imprisoned for involvement in attacking, assisting in attacking, or planning to attack Israel ...”
- - - - End of extract - - - -
While there is no evidence that Israel targets civilians, the Palestinians are addicted to ethnic-hatred of Jews and target Israeli Jewish civilians as policy. The Palestinians cynically whitewash their anti-Jewish hate-war as: “uprising”, “defence”, “desperation”, “struggle”, “resistance”.
Here is an example result from the Palestinian on-going anti-Jewish hate-war:
Israeli girl, Hallel Yaffa Ariel, aged 13, fatally stabbed in her bedroom in West Bank by a Palestinian terrorist, June 30, 2016, The Guardian:
The “Palestinian Authority Martyrs Fund” and “Hamas”, both brought to you by “European Union” funding of the “Palestinian Authority”:
The Palestinians seek to deceive the world that Gaza is subject to Israeli alleged-“oppression”, whereas in reality the Palestinians fire rockets and mortars at Israel, to which Israel responds in manner no different than any other country would respond, with both defensive and economic measures:
Brief historical background:
The Jewish People are the indigenous people of their ancestral homeland of Israel with unbroken presence there since Biblical times:
The Jewish People have had an unbroken presence in their ancestral homeland of Israel since Biblical times, and also previous sovereign states in the land for example the Jewish Hasmonean Kingdom of Judea (including the West Bank, Gaza, and Golan Heights), with its capital of (what is now East) Jerusalem, and independent as at 110 BCE / 753 BH–752 BH:
I hope this helps.

1. They alone have nuclear weapons.
2. They have the US on their side. Many people with Israeli passports are in the US government.
