“Won’t you be my Neighbor?”

The fall of 2014 saw an explosion of personal clashes between Arabs and Jews in Israel, Judea and Samaria. Jews were killed at train stations, at bus stops, on the streets and malls. Arabs were shot by security personnel at the scene of the attacks.

Attacks in the land date back to 1920. The first large scale riot of Arabs against Jews in multiple cities took place in 1929 and the first multi-year “intifada” went from 1936 to 1939. All of these took place before Israel was created or controlled any land.

The common theme of all attacks until the present day has been the Arab anger at Jews for living in Israel.

  • “Living” meant Jews moving to Israel, buying homes and living in the land.
  • “Living” meant Jews praying at the Western Wall or the Temple Mount.
  • “Living” meant Jews walking the streets, taking the bus or train in Israel.
  • “Living” meant being a Jewish baby in Israel.

When Israel was created in 1948, it offered all non-Jews citizenship and 112,000 became citizens. However, Abbas has called for a new Palestinian state to be free of any Jews. Abbas has repeatedly stated he will never recognize Israel as a Jewish State. Palestinian leadership constantly refers to Jews as foreign invaders who have no history in the land or right to live there.

Until Arab leadership finally recognizes the rights of Jews to live in the region, will there ever be a chance for peace?
