People refer to the West Bank as “occupied.” But is that even what it’s called? Are the Jewish people occupying their own land? Here are all the answers!
The West Bank – Judea and Samaria
Listen to Danny Ayalon, Israel’s previous Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, as he explains a few facts. Palestinian Arab propaganda has become so dominating that no one remembers who coined the term “Palestinian people.” “Palestine” was the name given to the land of Israel by the Romans after they conquered it in 135 C.E. and tried to erase all connections of the geographic location from the Nation of Israel. Interestingly enough, history has repeated itself in the 20th century, and the “Palestinian nation” was invented to erase all connections of the Jewish Nation of Israel to its homeland, the Land of Israel. But can you really just erase the truth? It will always resurface and show itself again. You cannot erase history without consequences.
And so, the problem for the “Palestinian people” is that all fingers point to the truth – Israel belongs to the Jewish people.
All You Need is a Little History
It is certainly important to know your history, especially in this situation. You cannot change history – it already happened! But that is what the world tries to do. The West Bank? No, Judea and Samaria! But by calling that area the “West Bank,” it unconsciously (or rather consciously) erases the Jewish connection to JUDEA and Samaria. Danny Ayalon gives all the facts. And he could not have said it any better! If you were uneducated about the truth beforehand, you definitely have the answers now!
The world needs to stop denying the Bible. They need to stop denying history. And they most certainly need to stop denying the Jewish people’s right to their homeland.
