The lies about Israel killing children in Gaza get so much media attention. Meanwhile did you know that today 200,000 Muslims prayed at the Temple Mount in #Jerusalem#Israel protected by the Israeli Defense Forces? And while Christian and Jews are harassed and terrorized in Arab countries, Israel is the only country in the Middle East where religious freedom is respected and protected. You will not find one Arab country in which 200,000 Christians or Jews or any other religions can gather and pray outdoors like this. #StandWithIsrael
“Language is and always will be an essential element in the struggle for understanding among peoples. Changes in the words and phrases we use to describe each other reflect whatever progress we make on the path toward a world where everyone feels respected and included.
A Google Ngram search comparing the frequency of the use of “colored people,” “minorities” and “people of color” delivers interesting results. The use of the phrase “colored people” peaked in books published in 1970. For “minorities,” the top-ranked year was 1997. Since then, the term has steadily declined but continues to significantly outstrip the use of “people of color,” which reached its apex in 2003 (although it is important to note that 2008 is the latest year for which results are available).”
Did you know that Jews are indigenous to Israel for over 3000 years?
Did you know that the Roman Empire wanted to wipe out any Jewish connection, so they renamed Judea to Syria-Palaestina?
Did you know that before WWI the empires conquered many regions, and especially the middle east was a collection of tribes that lived in cities. Countries came to be when the UK and France formed Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Lebanon. Once those countries formed, Middle Eastern Jews were kicked out, and when Jordan was in control of Jerusalem they destroyed Jewish holy sites.
“While Christian holy sites were protected, and Muslim holy sites were maintained and renovated, Jewish holy sites were damaged and sometimes destroyed. According to Raphael Israeli, 58 synagogues were desecrated or demolished in the Old City, resulting in the de-Judaization of Jerusalem.”
