in response to reader comment: Israel's History

Infidel, all you say sounds very reasonable. However your arguments would be much more persuasive and have much more impact if you provided the actual data you are talking about. You have just conducted a lengthy "duel" with Sword in the framework of which Swords repeated trumping card was that you are not supporting your argument with hard data. And all you were doing in response was to provide some more good literature sources and references. Indeed this was an absolutely futile argument because like us, Sword seems to belong to those who are genuinely looking for the truth.

Now I think that you are able to do much better than that. I have no doubt that the actual historic facts and the documented details are supporting your positions and your arguments; all you have to do is just to reveal them, even if you feel that they are common knowledge. I can assure you: THEY ARE NOT!

You should have noticed by now that most people are not familiar with the actual historic facts, and are basing their opinions and attitudes regarding Israel's struggle on all kinds of half truths, superstitions, and very frequently on outright lies and false accusations spread by the Arab propaganda. As surprising as it can be, this is a fact. The Arabs have turned the Propaganda into a powerful weapon, which they are using with an astonishing skill. They are routinely fabricating false "news items" for marketing their "genocide" blood libels against Israel and skillfully utilizing the biased media for effectively spreading them. They have perfectly learned the "big lie" tactic from Goebbels saying that "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." …Or perhaps Goebbels has learned it from his Arab friends and admirers?

Infidel, my bottom line is please do not shy from delivering details and any supporting documented data. The only way to fight the "big lie" is by unveiling it by providing the real hard facts and data.
