  • RUN!
  • "The Germans destroyed our families and homes, dont you destroy our hopes
  • 1939-1947, Fifth Aliya
  • come in, you are welcomed
  • this does not feel right
  • Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour writes an important letter to Baron Lionel Walter Rothschild, Britain's most renowned Jewish citizen, on November 2, 1917, indicating the British government's support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. The Balfour Declaration was the name given to the letter after it was written.
  • 1947, British Army withdrawal
  • The Holocaust was the systematic persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi dictatorship and its supporters and collaborators with the help of the state. In January 1933, the Nazis took power in Germany. They thought that the Germans belonged to a "superior" race to all others. They asserted that Jews belonged to a "inferior" race that posed a threat to the "German racial community."
  • 1948, Creation of Israel
  • I know the previous president promised the Arabs that the US would not act unless both Jews and Arabs in the region were consulted. but whether you like it or not, Israel is now an official state 
  • Peace in the Middle East
  • As anti-Semitism grew throughout Europe, many Jews were forced to flee their homelands. In Europe, several immigration restrictions have been enacted. This also helps to understand why Jewish immigration chose Palestine. With the Nazi triumph in Germany and the intensification of persecution in Austria and Czechoslovakia beginning in 1932, Jewish immigration to Palestine exploded. Between 1932 and 1939, Palestine received 247,000 migrants, accounting for 46% of European Jewish emigration. This fifth aliya was more of a flight than a "Zionist decision" in the European political climate.
  • 1948-Arabs Unity, Ethnic Cleansing
  • "if we didnt steal it, someone else will"
  • whatever your occupation does, Palestinians will always hold tight on their beliefs and identity, will never forget their history, we will take our land back
  • The United Nations suggested partitioning Palestine and establishing separate Arab and Jewish governments in November 1947. Britain withdrew its mandate on May 15, 1948. The British Army left Palestine, the UN takes over, leaving the Jews and Arabs to fight it out in the following war.
  • Truman announced his agreement of a request to allow 100,000 displaced refugees to Palestine in May 1946 and his official support for the establishment of a Jewish state in October. The United Nations Special Commission on Palestine studied the Palestinian situation during 1947 and suggested that Palestine be divided into two states, one Jewish and one Arab. The United Nations General Assembly passed Resolution 181 (commonly known as the Partition Resolution) on November 29, 1947, dividing the former British Palestinian mandate into Jewish and Arab governments in May 1948, when the British mandate was set to end.
  • Ethnic cleansing is a program or political/military plan that aims to expel a particular ethnic community, using force if necessary. Ethnic cleansing has been divided into three stages in the Palestinian context. The first was to expel individuals from their homes in a brutal manner. The second stage involved erasing their history and relationship with the land. The final stage entails ensuring that they will never return to their homelands. Between 1947 and 1950, the Zionist movement in historic Palestine employed ethnic cleansing to target Palestinians, and Israel continues to do so on a ‘slow' basis today.
